SENATE EDGES TO DEBATE Pence breaks tie to start talk on health care, but irst proposal is defeated ‘Our health care insurance system is a mess. We all know it, those who support Obamacare and those who oppose it. Something has to be done. We Republicans have looked for a way to end it and replace it with something else without paying a terrible political price. We haven’t found it yet, and I’m not sure we will.’

‘Now we’re all going to sit together and try to come up with something really spectacular. ... It’s a very, very complex and diicult task, something I know quite a bit about.’

WASHINGTON • Senate Republi-

can leaders secured the votes they needed on Tuesday to begin debating health care legislation, in a dramatic reversal of fortune for their health care efort.

While the move put them one step closer to repealing and replacing the Afordable Care Act, it remained unclear how much they could modify the law, given the deep policy schism that separates conservatives from centrists in the GOP. Just hours later, those schisms threatened to leave the party far

regulations are on the horizon in Missouri after lawmakers signed off on a package of legislation sought by Republican Gov. Eric Greitens. Working in a special summer session Tuesday, the GOP-controlled Senate voted 22-9 to endorse a House proposal that appears likely win the approval of the Republican governor. “Today is a great victory for pregnancy care centers that help women and children all over the state,” Greitens said in a statement. “I’m proud that many of Missouri’s lawmakers stood strong to protect the lives of the innocent unborn and women’s health.” Greitens was not in the Capitol when the second special session he has called this summer came to an end. Rather, the governor was in Colorado attending a conference of GOP governors in Aspen. The changes may put a damper on

‘Public trust is diminished,’ councilwoman says amid 5-1 vote for investigation BY ASHLEY LISENBY St. Louis Post-Dispatch

CLAYTON • The St. Louis County Council voted Tuesday to conduct an independent investigation of the county police department following allegations of misconduct connected with MetroLink patrols. The resolution penned by Councilman Sam Page called for investigation by “state and federal law enforcement” to ensure no county, state or federal law was broken. The allegations of misconduct were raised in public documents obtained from Metro and reported Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in the Post-Dispatch, including oicers covering a camera lens in the North Hanley MetroLink substation office, loitering in security oices, texting or sleeping while on duty, and providing inaccurate information on their whereabouts.

Inventory robots to roam aisles at Schnucks stores BY LISA BROWN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A slender robot named Tally soon will be roaming the aisles at select Schnucks groceries, on the lookout for out-of-stock items and verifying prices. Tally doesn’t have limbs but has two blinking eyes on a digital screen to make the robot appear friendly.

School symbolizes three decades of neglect Assault of homeless at historic Carr School shows lack of progress TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Every eight years or so, the Carr School just north of downtown stands in all of its crumbling, degraded glory as a metaphor for the state of St. Louis. Built in 1908 and designed by famed architect William Ittner, the former elementary school at 1421 Carr Street has been closed since 1978. The neighborhood around it has suffered and sagged ever since, mimicking the weathered and waterlogged building once known for its dazzling brickwork and soaring arches. In 1992, Carr School was one of 11 properties in the city named to a “most endangered” list by the Landmarks Association of St. Louis. Many of the buildings, from the Arena on Oakland Avenue to several of the Cupples Station warehouses, have since died ignominious deaths. But Carr School survived. In 2001, it was named to the National Register of Historic Places. Carr School is owned by the nonprofit Carr Square Tenant Corp., which manages the mostly lowincome housing that surrounds it.

LOTTERY

In 2008, heavily vandalized and boarded up, the school once again made the “most endangered” list. Last week, Carr School was in the news again. A 61-year-old homeless man named Edward Moore brutally attacked four other homeless people, two men and two women, with a hammer, allegedly in a dispute over personal belongings. The homeless people were sleeping inside the long vacant school. Once a glorious edifice dedicated to educating the next generation, the building has become emblematic of the problems that plague too many neighborhoods in St. Louis. Crime. Poverty. Homelessness. Neglect. They are the problems identified by U.S. District Judge Clyde S. Cahill in a uniquely opinionated court order filed in 1990 that could just as easily have been written today. In it, Cahill described that which ails St. Louis: a mix of public policies that make the poor poorer, do little to combat crime, and target neighborhoods in a way that make destroying them a self-fulfilling prophecy. Cahill was in a unique position to write such a striking opinion. He was this city’s first African-American U.S. district judge, and he regularly advocated for civil rights from the bench. In 1990, Cahill was presiding over a trial about conditions at the City Workhouse, the long troubled medium-security jail where most of the inmates are awaiting trial in the city on drug charges or other nonviolent ofenses. Then, as now, the facility lacked air condi-

tioning, was overcrowded and unsanitary, and in need of repairs and upgrading. But Cahill’s concern was about more than air conditioning, or even the workhouse. He was worried about St. Louis. “While it is both natural and predictable to expect the greatest concentration of law enforcement to be centered in those areas where crime appears to be more prevalent, it is also axiomatic that abuses there are likely to be condoned or ignored,” Cahill wrote. “These areas are usually in the poor and minority neighborhoods where jobs are scarce, education is substandard, and the promise of the ‘American dream’ has died. Certain neighborhoods in St. Louis have become the target of intensive police activity, including high surveillance and ‘battering ram’ search warrants. Obviously, such intrusive tactics increase that resentment and anger toward law enforcement which always seethes below the surface. These intrusive tactics, coupled with detention because of poverty, lead to a destruction of confidence in the criminal justice system. … Mass detention for petty offenses now may give temporary relief but it only postpones the misery to come.” It’s been 27 years since Cahill wrote those words, and the misery is all around us. Inside the Carr School, homeless with nowhere else to go camp out inside a once glorious vacant school. The building is not much more than a rock’s throw from Biddle House, the city-operated homeless shelter originally envisioned as a replace-

WHAT’S ON STLTODAY.COM

ment for the Rev. Larry Rice’s downtown homeless shelter. When Biddle House was opened, neighbors, including those who live in and around Carr Street, complained about the city concentrating its homeless population in an area already rife with poverty. When the city eventually closed Rice’s shelter, it created another temporary shelter, in a forestry garage just north of Biddle House. A lawsuit shut it down, and now, some of the homeless appear to be finding their own shelter. Those who commit crimes will end up at the workhouse, with a roof over their heads but not much relief from the heat. “The police have no diiculty in finding these ofenders,” Cahill wrote in 1990. “They scoop them up from the corners of North St. Louis like shovelfuls of sand from a beach; however, they still need assistance and deserve treatment even while they are in jail. These persons are still men and women who are entitled to be treated with dignity as human beings.” The judge, who died in 2004, was writing about pretrial inmates, but the sentiment applies just as easily to those who camp out in an abandoned school, or those on the fringes of poverty, wondering how they will scrape together enough money to avoid living in their car, or worse. This was St. Louis nearly three decades ago. It is St. Louis today. Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

CORRECTIONS • Missouri state Sen. Scott Sifton, D-Af-

fton, supports abortion rights. A story in Tuesday’s main news section misstated his position. • St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch says he could see an estimated $20,000 increase in his annual county pension under revised pension-system rules that were submitted by the administration of County Executive Steve Stenger and approved by the County Council in November. McCulloch’s total estimated annual pension from the state and county would be about $132,000, he said in a letter submitted to the County Council this week. The increase and the total amount are less than those estimated by the PostDispatch in a front-page article on July 8 and repeated in a subsequent editorial on July 10. In both the article and the editorial, McCulloch, 66, a key Stenger ally, had disputed the newspaper’s estimates of how the revisions would benefit him but had not provided any specifics. One pension change approved in November would directly benefit McCulloch by allowing him to draw full state and county pensions. At a hearing Tuesday evening, McCulloch said another change, which benefits employees with gaps in their county work history, would not apply to him. In addition, McCulloch said that as an elected oicial his pension increase would be efective only if he is re-elected and in oice on Jan. 1, 2019.

Free ACT testing dies with Greitens budget cut Missouri governor eliminated $4 million in assessment funding; 93 pct. of students took test BY KRISTEN TAKETA St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Missouri will no longer pay for all public high school juniors to take the ACT for free after Gov. Eric Greitens cut $4 million in assessment funding. In 2016, the year after Missouri began ofering the free college entrance exam, the percentage of public school graduating seniors who took the test increased to 93 percent from 67.6 percent, according to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Offering the test for free is considered valuable because it can encourage more students to apply for college and it gives a more accurate picture of statewide student performance. But 2016 also saw a noticeable drop in the average composite ACT score for Missouri students. It fell to 20.2 from 21.7 the year before. That’s slightly under the national average of 20.8. At the same time, however, the percentage of Missouri graduates who tested at or above the national average increased from 30.9 percent to 39.5 percent, according to the state education department. Average composite scores are expected to drop as more students take the ACT, since more students who may not have planned or prepared to take the test or attend college end up taking it if it’s free.

When more students in a school district take the ACT, it doesn’t just potentially increase the number of students who apply for or enter college. It can also help a district’s rating with the state, since Missouri rewards districts that have high percentages of graduates who have taken the ACT or other college standardized test and who have scored well on it. There still is a way for students to take the ACT for free. Districts can request fee waivers from the national ACT organization for students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, a measure of poverty. The ACT costs $46 per test, not including the writing component. Parkway is one school district that will continue ofering the test for free at its own expense, according to district spokeswoman Cathy Kelly. Parkway was one of the first area districts to ofer the ACT for free, years before Missouri did so. Rockwood School District also plans to fund the ACT tests on its own. Last year, 20 states administered the ACT to all public school graduates. In addition to the $4 million assessment funding cut, Greitens reduced $15 million for school transportation this year.

Last orca born at Sea World dies A killer whale calf that was the last to be born in captivity under SeaWorld’s now-shuttered orca breeding program has died at the company’s San Antonio park. Kyara, a 3-month-old orca calf who was born to Takara in April, came down with “very serious and progressive health issues” over the past week, SeaWorld said in a statement. In the three days before her death Monday, veterinarians spent day and night treating her for an infection, giving her antibiotics and hand-feeding her, the company added. An oicial cause of death may not be available for several weeks, SeaWorld said. “Kyara had a tremendous impact on each of her care staf, not to mention all of the guests that had the chance to see her,” trainer Julie Sigman said in a statement. The company said Takara and the rest of their pod appeared to be behaving normally and did not show signs of illness. With the loss of Kyara, SeaWorld now has 22 orcas at its Orlando, San Antonio and San Diego facilities, a company spokeswoman said. Amaya, 2½, at San Diego, is the youngest. SeaWorld has tried to retool its image and many of its programs in 2010 after a five-ton male orca, Tilikum, killed a trainer in front of park visitors at SeaWorld Orlando. Three years later, the documentary “Blackfish” sparked another, more intense wave of backlash against the park. Last March, SeaWorld announced it would end captive breeding of orcas and begin phasing out its killer whale performances. Kyara was conceived before the announcement.

‘Something made him crack,’ family says of Kershaw Man who died in shootout with police had been on medication, struggled to adjust after active duty BY SAMANTHA LISS st. Louis Post-dispatch

The family of a man who died in a shootout with police on Interstate 55 Monday says that’s not the Jerrod Kershaw they knew. “He would not have hurt anybody,” his maternal aunt, Debra Collins, said Tuesday. “Something made him crack.” Kershaw was killed in the shootout Monday morning after crashing a car in St. Louis County, then carjacking a vehicle at gunpoint and leading police on a chase into Jeferson County. His car was disabled by police and came to a stop south of Festus. Kershaw, wearing a bulletproof vest and armed with at least two weapons, exchanged fire with officers. It’s unclear whether Kershaw was killed by police or shot himself, authorities said. Police described the incident

as a “suicide mission,” but they said Kershaw had also threatened family members and co-workers Monday. Kershaw did not appear to have a significant criminal record, but the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department said it had “multiple dealings” with him in the past. Authorities did not elaborate. No oicers were hurt, though at least one police vehicle was riddled with bullet holes after the shootout. Eight St. Louis County oicers have been placed on administrative leave following the shooting, which is standard procedure for any oicer who fires a weapon on duty.

‘A TORTURED SOUL’ Family members say Kershaw, 30, struggled in recent months with his physical and mental health. He was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, rare for his age, and he almost died from complications that arose

from a severely abscessed tooth earlier this year, according to Collins. But Kershaw also struggled to cope after his return from overseas. He served in Iraq throughout the majority of 2010, according to records from the National Personnel Records Center. When he came home, he was not the same, Collins said. He

TRACKING MOVEMENTS

working to piece together Kershaw’s path Monday. At first, they were concerned he might have hurt others before the chase. They say they’ve confirmed that’s not the case, according to Capt. Gary Higginbotham of the Jefferson County Sherif’s Department. Police served several search warrants Tuesday and seized a computer, iPad and some ammunition, but found no letters, manifestos or anything written inside his Pacific apartment that would suggest a motive, Higginbotham said. “You don’t want to assume people are evil, and that there’s got to be a cause and efect for everything, but I don’t know if we’ll ever get to the why,” he said. Christine Byers of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report. Samantha Liss • 314-340-8017 @samanthann on Twitter sliss@post-dispatch.com

Trio targeted wrong man in attack

LAW & ORDER ST. CHARLES COUNTY > One man suspected in 3 bank robberies • Police believe one man is behind a string of bank robberies in the St. Charles area this month. Each time, in three bank robberies over a two-week period, the robber has passed a note to the teller demanding money while implying he had a weapon, police said. Authorities say he was also spotted in several other banks and credit unions apart from the robberies. The robberies were: • Regions Bank, 423 First Capitol Drive in St. Charles, about 12:30 p.m. July 12. • Commerce Bank, 2700 St. Peters Parkway in St. Peters. about 4:40 p.m. Friday. • First State Bank, 1501 South Old Highway 94 in St. Charles, about 4:40 p.m. Monday.

was sad all the time. “He was a tortured soul,” Collins said. Kershaw was seeking help at John Cochran VA Medical Center and was prescribed antidepressants, Collins said. It seemed to be helping, she said. And, in the last few weeks, he seemed like he was doing really well — well enough that he decided to stop taking his medicine, she said. Kershaw’s Facebook page includes photos of him in uniform with Army comrades, and posts about supporting law enforcement. “I feel so sad for the policemen that were forced to do that,” Collins said of the shootout. Collins said the family wants the victims of the carjacking and others to know Kershaw was not the man he portrayed himself to be on Monday.

MADISON COUNTY > Woman gets prison for pretending she, son had cancer • A woman who pretended she and her son had cancer in order to get donations has been sentenced to 18 months in prison, the Madison County state’s attorney’s oice said Tuesday. Melissa D. Barton, 28, of Troy, Ill., was caught by police in 2014 using online donation websites such as YouCaring to receive money from people and religious organizations after she told them she had cancer and her son had leukemia, authorities said. After she was charged with theft by Barton deception, Barton told the Post-Dispatch that police were wrong in their accusations. She said her son was born 10 weeks premature and had some health issues. She said that at one point she “jumped to conclusions” about the health scares, but she wasn’t trying to get money from anyone. Barton said two other people set up the fundraisers without her permission. Barton pleaded guilty to two counts of theft by deception in October 2016. Her sentence includes a 30-month probation period following her release. She has also been ordered to pay $1,290 in restitution. Police said Barton went by several aliases, including Melissa Dawn Pruett Barton and Missy Barton Pruett. ST. LOUIS > Appeals court says suit against Ferguson can proceed • An appeals court on Tuesday upheld a federal judge here who refused to dismiss a lawsuit against the city of Ferguson and police related to the 2014 fatal shooting of Michael Brown. The lawsuit, iled in 2015 by Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson, has been on hold pending the outcome of the appeal. Johnson sued Ferguson, former Police Chief Thomas Jackson and Darren Wilson, the former oicer who fatally shot Brown. The suit says Wilson assaulted Johnson and violated his constitutional rights, intentionally inlicting emotional pain. It said that Wilson’s actions were part of a pattern and practice of misconduct by Ferguson police, and that the city and Jackson negligently failed to supervise oicers. The suit was later moved to federal court, where lawyers for the police sought the dismissal of the case because, among other things, they said Wilson did not use “excessive force” against Johnson, that Jackson was not at the scene and that the city was immune from suits where there was no underlying constitutional violation. In March 2016, U.S. District Judge Audrey Fleissig refused to dismiss the case. In a 2-1 decision Tuesday, Judges Diana E. Murphy and Michael J. Melloy agreed, writing that the facts as alleged by Johnson’s suit were suicient to allow the case to proceed. Judge Roger L. Wollman dissented, saying that he would have dismissed the case because the “seizure” of Johnson was not unconstitutional. JEFFERSON CITY > Mother settles suit against her daughter’s killer • A mid-Missouri woman has settled a lawsuit she iled against a former neighbor who killed the woman’s 9-year-old daughter in 2009. In a settlement approved Monday in Cole County, Alyssa Bustamante was ordered to pay the victim’s mother, Patricia Preiss, $5 million plus 9 percent interest until the debt is paid. Bustamante was 15 when she killed Preiss’ daughter, Elizabeth Olten, in 2009 in the small town of St. Martins, just west of Jeferson City. Prosecutors said Bustamante committed the crime to see how it felt to kill someone. The Jeferson City News-Tribune reports Bustamante, who is now 23, signed the agreement in March but Priess didn’t sign it until Monday. Bustamante is serving a life sentence after pleading guilty to second-degree murder and armed criminal action.

ily of five, including three children, found themselves under fire while driving home through a residential area in the middle of the night earlier this month. The family’s GMC Yukon was struck by gunfire in the 8300 block of Stowers Street in State Park Place, shattering windows and nearly striking the children in the back seat, according to the St. Clair County Sherif’s Department. Three men in a pickup came after the family’s SUV, police said in a statement announcing charges Tuesday, more than two weeks after the incident. The shots rang out shortly before 3 a.m. on July 8. When the 38-year-old father stopped the car, the men jumped from the pickup and

attacked him, beating and pistol-whipping him in the street, police said. But during the beating, the three attackers realized they had the wrong man and drove of, police say The victim suffered head injuries and wounds to his arms but declined medical treatment. The children and mother were not injured, though police said bullets struck the back car seats just inches from the children. “This was a horrible case of mistaken identity, and those charged are lucky to not be facing murder charges,” Capt. Bruce Fleshren of the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. Charged Friday were: • Ryan S. Miniex, 31, of Hollywood Heights, who faces four felony counts: aggravated discharge of a firearm, unlawful use of weapon by a felon, un-

lawful possession of a firearm and mob action. • Alex T. Molina, 35, and Salvador Hernandez, 24, who were each charged with a single count of mob action. Both live in State Park Place, an unincorporated area near Collinsville. Hernandez was arrested Tuesday. The others were already in custody. Bail for Miniex was set at $75,000. Molina’s bail is set at $50,000, and Hernandez’s at $40,000. The men wouldn’t say who they were looking to harm that night, Fleshren said. The motive wasn’t clear. Fleshren said it’s possible the attack was gang-related, but he can’t say for sure. He said there’s no indication that it was drug-related.

Meeting here marks East St. Louis rioting FERGUSON • FROM A1

St. Louis will highlight the challenges that black America still faces but also showcase work being done to level the playing field. “The challenges the St. Louis region faces are like the challenges of many major cities,” he said. Poverty, disparity in education and police relationships, among them. Building the $4 million center to provide opportunities for north St. Louis County residents to receive the proper training to get jobs will help create a more economically viable region and allow for more families to have a financially stable life, Morial said. Last year, the 107-year-old civil rights organization held its national conference in Baltimore. Eight months after Brown’s death, Freddie Gray died while in police custody in Baltimore, leading to protests and riots there. Charges against three police officers were dropped after three others were acquitted. The Ferguson center, not far from Canfield Green, the apartment complex where Michael Brown was shot by then-Oicer Darren Wilson, will feature a memorial to the teen. His parents, Michael Brown Sr. and Lezley McSpadden, are expected at the event Wednesday. The memorial consists of a bench on a large pad of concrete. In the concrete and tucked partially under the bench is a bronze plaque with the familiar image of Brown, a recent high school graduate, wearing a mortarboard. “In memory of Michael O.D. Brown, May 20, 1996-August 9, 2014,” the plaque reads. Mixed into the concrete are 100 shredded stuffed animals. The animals were part of a makeshift memorial that grew in the middle of Canfield Drive, where Brown died. As a result, the concrete is flecked with pink, orange and yellow. “This bench and decorative concrete base commemorate the social justice, change and movement towards a more just society that came about after his death,” the plaque reads. “This base contains pieces of his memorial in the Canfield Green Apartments complex brought by people from all over the world.” The stufed animals, removed

Darryl Jones, director of community engagement for the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, speaks on the phone Tuesday in the multipurpose room in the new Ferguson branch before Wednesday’s grand opening. The Urban League is partnering with the Salvation Army to run the community center just blocks from Canield Green apartments, where Michael Brown lived.

because of a planned street repaving and for safety reasons, were put into storage by the Urban League. They were replaced in May 2015 with a permanent marker and a bronze dove, installed in a sidewalk along Canfield Drive. Michael McMillan, CEO of the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, said the center’s me-

morial was designed with input from Brown’s parents and is appropriate for the “ground zero” site, a convenience store burned and looted then used as a backdrop for protests. Morial said that while the national conference oicially takes place in downtown St. Louis, having the opening ceremony in Ferguson is a necessity. Rather

than being known solely as a flashpoint, Ferguson can be cast as a place of rebuilding and providing economic opportunities, especially for African-American men through the Urban League’s “Save Our Sons” job training program. More than 75 percent of the workers and contractors who built the center are AfricanAmerican. But, Morial stressed, the conference and its focus on Ferguson also will serve as a reminder that much more work needs to be done here and throughout the country. “Michael Brown died at the hands of police, and no one was held accountable. We cannot and should not forget,” Morial said. One of the sessions of the conference is titled: “Ferguson: From Anger to Action.” After the shooting of Brown, “the fight for equality and justice continues,” reads the description of the Friday morning session. “That same fight lives on in many cities and communities. What are the tangible strategies for racial healing? How can community activists and organizers inspire citizens to channel their

frustrations into meaningful action?” Michael F. Neidorff, CEO of Centene Corp. and chairman of the National Urban League board, will be among company executives and dignitaries at the opening ceremony. During a breakfast in March to formally announce the conference was coming to St. Louis for the first time since 2007, Neidorf said it is an opportunity to show of the region’s diversity and the strides made since the fallout that made Ferguson a household word. “There is a responsibility on us to show the rest of the country who we are,” he said then. Neidorf’s company has taken the lead in investing in Ferguson. Earlier this month, Centene Corp. said it was spending $1.3 million to open an urgent and primary care health facility inside a Schnucks grocery in Ferguson. The Clayton-based managed care company is expected to partner with the Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers to open the facility, which will provide immunizations, dental services and other health care services for adults and children over the age of 3. Last year, Centene opened a $25 million service center with more than 200 employees. At a grand opening for that facility, Neidorff said he wanted to help rebuild Ferguson after hearing that some small-business owners were considering not reopening after businesses were destroyed and damaged in unrest after Brown’s death. The local chapter of the Urban League was formed as a result of the East St. Louis riots in 1917, McMillan said. Having St. Louis hold the conference during the 100-year commemoration of that dark time in history was something for which his organization lobbied. It’s a way to mark progress while not forgetting the past, he said. The new 13,500-square-foot facility is formally named the Ferguson Community Empowerment Center. In addition to housing programs run by the Urban League and Salvation Army, the Lutheran Hope Center and the University of Missouri Extension also will provide services.

McCulloch asks council to preserve county pension

COUNTY • FROM A1

Page, of the 2nd District, declined to say which agencies would be called upon to handle the external investigation. He said county Police Chief Jon Belmar would be included in that discussion. Council members voted 5 to 1 in favor of the resolution. Councilwoman Colleen Wasinger, 3rd District, was absent. Page and his council colleagues expressed their respect for police officers, but also a desire to restore public trust amid recent accusations. “When the public trust is diminished, we have to address that,” said Councilwoman Rochelle Walton Gray, 4th District. Councilman Pat Dolan, 5th District, was the only member to object to the external investigation, citing his trust in the integrity of the department to conduct its own investigation. “There is another side to this story,” Dolan said. “I have full confidence that their internal affairs will look into this and if they find out that they need to go beyond that I have confidence they have enough integrity to seek assistance beyond that if they need to.” On KMOX Tuesday morning, Belmar reiterated his pledge to launch an internal afairs investigation into the allegations. During public comments at Tuesday’s council meeting, several speakers voiced support for the police department and for its police chief, while others called for an audit and disciplinary action if there is proof of misconduct. County Police Association President Joe Patterson said in a statement to the council before the vote on Tuesday that the association believed the information reported by the Post-Dispatch was “unsubstantiated.” Patterson called for due process of the association’s members. He urged listeners not to condemn members before an investigation was complete. “We welcome an internal investigation. While we admit the optics appear diicult, we airm that no violation of local, state or federal law has occurred or has been alleged. This is far from a

controversy or scandal. This is a policy violation, at most.” Metro operates 46 miles of light rail and 79 bus routes in St. Louis, St. Louis County and St. Clair County. In response to spikes in violence, including shootings and assaults on light-rail platforms in the city and county, St. Louis County now supervises all the oicers working the transit system, under a memorandum of understanding signed by area political leaders. On Tuesday morning, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Association and Belmar took to the airwaves to respond to the allegations in the Metro documents. Belmar said a photo from inside a substation at the North Hanley MetroLink stop featuring numerous oicers gathered during the July 4 weekend was taken during a fireworks show, and that they were gathered there for a break before the rush. Officer Gabe Crocker, a spokesman for the police union, said a picture of multiple oicers inside the same substation included several oicers who were on break, coming on from shift change, or assigned to another unit altogether who chose the location as a meeting spot. During Belmar’s interview Tuesday on KMOX, the chief said that during his three years

in charge, the department has had 31 complaints against oicers on MetroLink, and has sustained about 70 percent of those complaints. He did not elaborate on the nature of those complaints. He said he knew of just one of the allegations contained in the newspaper’s reporting — one of several instances when an oicer covered a surveillance camera inside the substation with a piece of paper. He said the oicer told internal affairs investigators he did so for privacy while changing. The officer was transferred to diferent duty, Belmar said. On Monday, Belmar said he regretted not asking Metro oicials at that time to remove the camera or turn it of except at times when suspects were present. “I take these charges seriously, too, and I wish I would have known about more than one of them, because it’s important to investigate them in real time,” Belmar said on KMOX of the allegations, some of which date to two years ago. “When we don’t do that, it can become a little bit opaque … But I want to give assurance that we are going to get to the bottom of this.” Christine Byers of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch, in a bid to protect his county pension, on Tuesday defended changes made last year that would increase his retirement benefits. At a hearing in front of members of the County Council, McCulloch and his lawyer argued that the changes previously approved by the County Council wouldn’t afect McCulloch unless he is re-elected in 2018. He cited a provision of the St. Louis County Charter that prohibits increasing an elected official’s “compensation” while the oicial is in oice. At the hearing, McCulloch announced that he still planned to be in oice in 2019, but “there are no guarantees.” The council in November passed an ordinance allowing the prosecuting attorney to draw two full pensions from the state and the county. Some council members who approved the ordinance then have recently said they did not understand the legislation and would not have voted for it if they had. Before that change, the prosecutor’s county pension would have been reduced by a third if he or she also collects a state pension. John Hessel, McCulloch’s lawyer, told council members at the hearing Tuesday they should not annul any benefits that they had previously given the prosecuting attorney. Nevertheless, the council, in a 5-1 vote later Tuesday, gave preliminary approval to legislation that would efectively eliminate the prosecutor’s county pension. The administration of County Executive Steve Stenger had pushed for the pension increase last year. “Amending Prosecutor McCulloch’s pension was, in my mind, an act of fairness and appreciation for a lifetime of faithful service to the public,” Stenger said in a statement earlier this month. McCulloch and Stenger are allies, and the prosecutor had

helped Stenger in his 2014 election, including donating $100,000, mostly through inkind contributions. At the hearing, McCulloch and Hessel criticized the Post-Dispatch, which had first reported on the pension increase. In a letter to the council, McCulloch for the first time provided some specific details on the impact of the increase, estimating his pension would increase about $20,000 to $132,000 a year. The newspaper previously had estimated the increase at about $40,000 and a total of $170,000 a year. It was unclear Tuesday whether McCulloch’s estimate had been adjusted for spousal benefits. Hessel, who, along with his law firm, LewisRice, has previously represented the Post-Dispatch, said that lawmakers created the state’s Prosecuting Attorneys and Circuit Attorneys’ retirement fund for the “specific purpose of being in addition to other pension benefits so that you could keep and attract the right person to the job.” Yet the St. Louis County Council in 1995 amended the pension plan to reduce the county prosecutor’s pension by whatever amount the prosecutor received from the state pension. In 2009, the council approved another change to the prosecutor’s pension by voting to only reduce it by one third if the prosecutor also received a state pension. Then last year, the council voted to remove any reduction. The bill was introduced by Councilman Mike O’Mara, who was about to leave oice. The bill also allowed some employees with gaps in their county work history to count all of their years of service toward their pension. McCulloch, who served as an assistant county prosecutor, has said the change would not apply to him because he was not vested in the system when he left the prosecutor’s office in the 1980s. He returned in 1991 after being elected to head the oice. Stephen Deere • 314-340-8116 @stephencdeere on Twitter sdeere@post-dispatch.com

Gasconade County mystery unfolds as DNA conirms woman’s identity BY JEREMY KOHLER st. Louis Post-dispatch

G A S C O N A D E C O U N T Y, MO. • Authorities on Tues-

day revealed some answers in the mystery of two bodies pulled on consecutive days in March from a small pond near Owensville. They released the identity of the first body found, and it turned out to be the wife of the second. But they wouldn’t say if they knew how the couple died, or how they ended up in the pond. The saga began on March 21, when relatives of a man living in a small house here reported him missing. That day, divers searched a small pond by the house and found a body, but it wasn’t the man they were looking for, James “Charlie” Holt Jr., 62. They said Holt was a person of interest in a murder case. The next day, they came back and pulled a second body from the water. This time, it was Holt. What was the iden-

tity of the first body? For four months, authorities wouldn’t say if they knew. On Tuesday, they said DNA tests had confirmed the victim’s identity: It was Crystal McGee, 44, who was married to Holt. Did Holt and McGee kill themselves? Kill each other? Were others involved? Gasconade County Sheriff John Romanus said he needed to withhold further details to protect the investigation. Was a killer at large? Romanus previously told a reporter that authorities had questioned someone in the case but would not elaborate.

Holt and McGee had been living in a rented home in Florissant when they were evicted by court order in February 2016, according to court records. A landlord said the couple fought a lot and did not pay rent. McGee’s posts on Facebook indicated she and Holt were married in May 2015, but the marriage was breaking up around the time of the eviction. She told her friends that Holt had “put his hands on me.” For four days in February 2016, McGee wrote thanks to God for giving her another day of life. Days later,

she posted a picture of herself sitting on a porch swing. That was the last time she was on Facebook, and two friends told a Post-Dispatch reporter they hadn’t heard from her in a long time. A family member of Holt’s said Holt showed up at his home outside Owensville around Thanksgiving without McGee. The family arranged for Holt to move into a vacant house down the street, several feet from the pond where he was later found. About the first week of March, Holt moved back in with the family because his power had been cut of. Chris Yoder, the husband of Holt’s stepdaughter, said he last saw Holt on March 18, a Saturday. He later passed Holt’s car at the house with no power. He said Holt didn’t come home on March 19. He and his wife called police on March 21. That’s when the mystery began.

DIGEST TOWN AND COUNTRY > Rezoning discussion for Town Square begins • Town and Country aldermen are working on a rezoning bill for the long-awaited Town Square Project, following a public hearing Monday night. Most of the nine residents who spoke favored the plan, which includes a restaurant and retail uses. But a warning was issued by a consultant that the plan as written could “hamstring” potential lenders. Aldermen will start considering the inal version of the bill Aug. 14. The 9-acre site is southeast of Clayton and Mason roads. Because Town and Country has lacked a designated town center, the project has been considered to be developed as a mix of public space, including park areas, with up to two acres of new restaurants. Private investment in the restaurants, with the land sold or leased to developers, could help underwrite part of the city’s

park and pavilion development costs on the site, which have been estimated at $3 million. Restaurants have always been included as a permitted use in the project. But some uses would require a separate public hearing process within the district, for such businesses as banks or professional oices. The Planning and Zoning Commission favors “conditional uses” for these, which may be a hard sell with lenders, consultant Mike Convy said, because there could be delays or denial of parts of the development. The city bought the land in late 2014 for $2.25 million after it had been in the Wirth family for decades. The site is vacant, except for an abandoned house which would be razed. Several public meetings as well as surveys have followed before the rezoning bill was considered ready for aldermanic action. (Special to the PostDispatch)

DNA match leads to murder charge in woman’s death Berkeley resident was found beaten at home in 2012 BY JOEL CURRIER Post-dispatch

BERKELEY • A DNA match has led to a first-

degree murder charge in a 2012 beating death in Berkeley. Kavion L. Thomas, 27, was charged Tuesday with beating Patti Ann Harvill to death April 25, 2012, in her Berkeley home. Charges say Thomas’ DNA was found on Harvill’s body and in droplets of blood at her home in the 9000 block of Harold Drive. She was found in a hallway; police found no evidence of a break-in, and no valuables were taken. Thomas is serving an eight-year sentence in Kentucky for man- Harvill slaughter in the October 2014 beating death of a man at a closed-down car wash in Lexington, Ky. News reports say he and two others were accused of killing Brian DePreta, 50. Records show Thomas became Thomas eligible for parole for that conviction on July 1. Harvill’s sister said Tuesday she is relieved about the charges but says she is still frustrated, particularly with Berkeley police, that a resolution has taken more than five years. “Once they didn’t get a hit on DNA, they sat back and waited for (the killer) to mess up,” said Harvill’s sister, Gina Giardina, of Park Hills, Mo. “I thought I was going to go to my grave not knowing” who killed her. Police have said they think Harvill knew her killer, but Giardina said her sister did not know Thomas. Harvill’s family has held annual vigils near Harvill’s home seeking clues in her murder. Giardina said she can now finish her forearm tattoo of a cross with her sister’s name and date of death. She plans to have “Rest in Peace” inked above the cross. Harvill was divorced, had lived in Berkeley since 2003 and worked as a receptionist for the Skypark garage near St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Bail for Thomas on the murder charge was set at $500,000. Joel Currier • 314-621-5804 @joelcurrier on Twitter jcurrier@post-dispatch.com

Hawley’s spending hints at run for Senate He says he isn’t focused on a possible McCaskill challenge; outlay suggests otherwise BY KEVIN McDERMOTT st. Louis Post-dispatch

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley hasn’t said whether he’ll seek a U.S. Senate seat next year, but he’s spending money like a candidate — shelling out almost $170,000 in campaign funds for media production, direct mail and other promotional services in the past few months, even though he isn’t formally running for anything. None of the campaign-funded material specifically mentions the Senate, but it proHawley motes Hawley. If that’s meant to lay groundwork for a 2018 Senate run, it could raise questions about whether it skirts federal campaign rules, since the money wasn’t raised under federal fundraising limits. A Hawley spokesman characterized his media buys as general public engagement with no specific campaign in mind. “The Hawley Committee makes an ongoing efort to communicate Josh’s priorities and work to the people of Missouri,

including an active social media video campaign to make people aware of eforts to combat human trafficking,” spokesman Scott Paradise wrote in a statement. Hawley, a Republican and a high-profile legal scholar in national conservative circles before seeking his first elective post last year, took office in January as state attorney general. Though he is just seven months into a four-year term, some Republican leaders have pressed Hawley to seek the GOP nomination to challenge Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., in 2018. His backers include Vice President Mike Pence and all four living Republican ex-senators from Missouri. Hawley has played down talk of a Senate run but hasn’t ruled it out. “I do think it’s awfully early to be talking about other jobs or elections,” Hawley told the PostDispatch editorial board last month. But Missouri records show Hawley’s campaign spent more than $167,000 between January and the end of June on services with descriptions such as “media production fees,” “direct mail” and “strategic planning,” using

some of the same media consultants he used during his campaign for attorney general last year. Such spending is routine for candidates running for oice, but unusual for newly seated oiceholders who don’t face re-election for almost four years. By comparison, fellow newly seated statewide oiceholder Jay Ashcroft, Missouri’s secretary of state, spent about $12,000 in online media costs during that same six-month period, his only clearly identifiable media spending since taking oice. Newly seated state Treasurer Eric Schmitt’s records show no clearly identifiable media spending at all in that time. Hawley’s media presence since taking oice has included a oneminute video released in April, in which Hawley describes his office’s fight against human trafficking. While few would quibble with the goal, the high-productionquality video looks almost indistinguishable from a paid political campaign ad: The visual is entirely Hawley talking into the camera, promising action on the issue as music plays behind him,

Robots won’t take jobs, oicial says ROBOT • FROM A1

states, on Monday will begin testing its first Tally at its store at 6600 Clayton Road in Richmond Heights. The pilot test is expected to last six weeks. A second Tally will appear in coming weeks at Schnucks stores at 1060 Woods Mill Road in Town and Country and at 10233 Manchester Road in Kirkwood. The robots are the first test of the technology in Missouri and could ultimately be expanded to more Schnucks stores. Each 30-pound robot is equipped with sensors to help it navigate the store’s layout and avoid bumping into customers’ carts. When it detects product areas that aren’t fully stocked, the data is shared with store management staf so the retailer can make changes, said Dave Steck, Schnuck Markets’ vice president of IT and infrastructure. The primary focus of the data collection is to determine the store’s in-stock position, but other shelf data such as price errors may also be examined. “This is a big learning experience for us to really understand what the capability is,” Steck said. Large, consumer packagedgoods companies provide the primary funding source for the technology. San Francisco-based Simbe Robotics touts the machine’s ability to streamline store performance, increase sales and cut expenses. Providing a way to more quickly identify low-stocked items and price errors frees up staff to focus on customer service, Simbe’s CEO Brad Bogolea told the Post-Dispatch. Founded in 2014, Simbe has placed Tally robots in mass merchants, dollar stores and groceries across the country, including some Target stores in San Francisco last year. “The goal of Tally is to create more of a feedback mechanism,” Bogolea said. “Although most retailers have good supply chain intelligence, and point-of-sale data on what they’ve sold, what’s challenging for retailers is understanding the true state of merchandise on shelves. Everyone sees value in higher quality, more frequent information across the entire value chain.” The robot does take breaks. When Tally senses it’s low on power, it finds its way to a charging dock. And, the robot is designed to stay out of the way of customers. If it detects a congested area, it’ll return to the aisle when it’s less busy. If a shopper approaches the robot, it’s programmed to stop moving. Simbe also uses fleet manage-

with a slogan and logo at the end. “I’m Josh Hawley,” Hawley says, twice, in the video. “I’m determined to abolish this modern-day slavery and I’m asking for your help.” There’s no specific information about how a viewer might help. The content is technically about one of Hawley’s oicial duties as attorney general, with no mention of a campaign, meaning it could legitimately have been funded by the state. But the video specifies that it was paid for by the “Hawley for Missouri” campaign. “These expenditures raise serious questions that Hawley needs to answer about whether he is violating state and federal campaign finance rules to climb the political ladder,” Meira Bernstein, communications director for the Missouri Democratic Party, said in a written statement in reaction to the newspaper’s findings. Even as Hawley spent heavily from his state campaign fund after taking office, he has done hardly any fundraising at all to replenish that money. Records show Hawley raised a little over $18,000 in the first six months of this year, a relatively paltry

SCHNUCK MARKETS

ment tools to monitor its robots to detect if the robot has been picked up or moved. “We know if someone has bumped into the robot,” Bogolea said. A Simbe representative will be on-site at Schnucks stores during the pilot phase. The data Tally collects may prove useful to those studying retail analytics. Schnuck Markets and Simbe have had preliminary talks with oicials at Washington University about having students study the collected data. “Robots have the ability to gather information about what goes on in an environment,” said Aaron Bobick, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Washington University, who studies human-robot collaboration. “And business is all about converting data into intelligence.” Until recently, businesses have mostly tapped into industrial robotics, or robots that aren’t in real world situations with shoppers, such as car manufacturers using robots to assemble vehicles. Faced with pressure from Amazon, retailers including WalMart Stores have begun using robots to perform tasks such as counting cash. Schnucks’ testing of robots situated in the physical world, an example of service robotics, will

become more prevalent in the future, Bobick said. “Of course they will because they work,” Bobick said. “These are tasks performed by only modestly intelligent machines. Robots tend to be less expensive than people and they can gather data at a ferocious rate. Plus, they’re not going to get tired.” Schnuck Markets’ Steck said the robot pilot is not a job-cutting measure. “This is not to displace jobs,” he said. “It still takes someone to order (merchandise), receive it from the warehouse and ultimately to stock it. There are no arms or legs on this robot.” Schnuck Markets has made other recent tech investments, including partnering with Instacart in February to offer online ordering and delivery. Since the initial rollout in St. Louis, delivery has expanded to more than 90 percent of Schnucks stores. The grocery chain also switched networks at all of its St. Louis stores over the past year and a half to enable faster Wi-Fi speeds for customers’ smartphones and tablets. “Schnucks has been incredibly progressive from a grocery perspective, and we see them as a great partner,” Simbe’s Bogolea said.

A second robot will appear at the company’s stores at 1060 Woods Mill Road in Town and Country and 10233 Manchester Road in Kirkwood in the coming weeks. The robot’s base is 38 inches tall, and an extension allows it to scan higher shelves.

amount for a statewide elected oicial who expects to run for another term in state oice. During the same time period, Schmitt and Ashcroft raised about $46,000 and about $135,000, respectively. This could be another indicator that Hawley is eyeing federal oice. Any money donated to his state campaign fund now will become efectively unusable if and when he announces a Senate run, because those funds raised under Missouri’s campaign system can’t be transferred to a federal campaign. For a state-level politician planning to run for federal office, then, it often makes sense to spend down existing state-level campaign funds, while asking future contributors to hold on to their money, for now, until a federal fund is set up that they can give to. One prominent supporter of a Hawley Senate run, Missouri businessman Sam Fox, put out a statement last month efectively asking fellow major Republican donors to do just that.

Planned Parenthood’s push to open clinics in Columbia, Springfield and Joplin following the overturning of a previous Missouri law that had limited access to abortion clinics. Currently, the state’s lone abortion clinic operated by Planned Parenthood is in St. Louis. “Missouri’s abortion laws are already some of the most restrictive in the nation. Federal courts have blocked some of those medically unnecessary restrictions. This political theater is an expensive and ideological ploy to end abortion access in the state,” said M’Evie Mead, director of policy and organizing for Planning Parenthood Advocates in Missouri. The wide-ranging proposal also would exempt alternatives-to-abortion agencies from a new St. Louis ordinance barring discrimination against women on the basis of whether they take birth control or have had an abortion. “This is the most important bill in my short time as a legislator. There is a clear and present danger to the health and safety of Missouri women and to the free speech rights of pregnancy care centers,” said Republican Sen. Bob Onder, an abortion opponent from Lake Saint Louis. The vote left Democrats seething after they had worked to send the House a less restrictive version of the legislation last month. The House rejected that proposal and sent the Senate a version containing tougher mandates against abortion clinics. Democrats and a handful of Republicans had sought to force a compromise with the House. But Republican leaders used the so-called “nuclear option” to end debate on the measure. Three Republicans bolted from party leaders to vote against forcing a vote on the bill, including Sens. Bob Dixon of Springfield, Gary Romine of Farmington and Doug Libla of Poplar Bluf. Sen. Jill Schupp, D-Creve Coeur, said she would have filibustered the issue last month had she known Senate Republicans would allow the House bill to make it to Greitens’ desk. “I feel like women are under attack in the state of Missouri,” Schupp said. Senate Minority Leader

Gina Walsh, D-Bellefontaine Neighbors, said the additional regulations represent an expansion of government powers at a time when Greitens says he is trying to reduce bureaucratic red tape. “We’re just doing it to score brownie points with certain groups,” Walsh said. “This entire emergency session was nothing more than free advertising for Greitens’ personal political ambitions, where women were treated as pawns to satisfy his desire for higher office,” added Alison Dreith, executive director of NARAL Pro Choice Missouri. The proposed changes now heading to Greitens’ desk require annual inspections of abortion clinics. Abortion providers also must have plans in place in case a procedure causes complications for patients. It boosts protections for whistleblowers at clinics and adds more regulations on how aborted fetal tissue is handled. The proposal also grants the attorney general’s oice jurisdiction over crimes related to abortion. Opponents argued that the provision would give the state’s top lawyer power to intervene in local afairs. Abortion opponents, however, said that power is not unique. In a letter to the 33 senators, Samuel Lee of Campaign Life Missouri noted that there are at least 12 areas of state law where the attorney general has the authority to enforce criminal and civil laws of the state, including state liquor laws, gambling laws and environmental regulations. Sen. Andrew Koenig, RManchester, who sponsored the legislation, said there was no “grand bargain” with Democrats that precluded Senate Republicans from endorsing the House version. “The words never came out of my mouth that I was going to hold the line on the Senate position,” Koenig said. If signed by Greitens, the new law is likely destined to be challenged in court. The state already is on the hook to pay Planned Parenthood $159,000 in legal fees after the abortion and health care provider successfully sued the state to overturn an earlier round of added restrictions.

Teen steals keys, purse from ire station, then returns to swipe a pickup BY BLYTHE BERNHARD st. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A teenager came

into the firehouse at 6500 Michigan Avenue on Monday night looking for a soda, and walked out with a paramedic’s purse and keys to a fireman’s pickup. The burglary happened around 7:30 p.m. during a shift change as emergency medical crews

were talking outside the station in the Carondelet neighborhood. The boy, estimated to be 14 years old, asked to buy a drink from the vending machine. It’s common for people to walk up and talk to firefighters or ask for advice, said St. Louis Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson. No one escorted the teen to the soda machine, where he allegedly grabbed a set of keys ly-

ing on a workbench and a purse sitting on the seat of an ambulance. The teen returned later to match the key to a fireman’s truck, which he stole, Jenkerson said. Firefighters later found the purse in a nearby dumpster, with the paramedic’s prescription medication missing. The truck has not been recovered.

The same firehouse is still mourning the death of its 25year veteran Capt. John Kemper, who died from injuries sufered in a structure fire in the 3600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue on July 5. Jenkerson said fire stations have been burglarized before, with televisions and even dinners being stolen when firefighters were out on calls.

He said the open door policy won’t change despite the burglaries. “Part of what we do is talk to the neighbors, talk to the neighborhood, feel like we’re part of the community,” he said. “We’re going to stay that course, just be a little more careful.” Blythe Bernhard • 314-340-8129 @blythebernhard on Twitter bbernhard@post-dispatch.com

Wagner likens sex-ad sites to slave auctioneers, says Justice lags in prosecution

BY CHUCK RAASCH • St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WASHINGTON • Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, on Tues-

day equated the online advertising site Backpage with slave auctioneers, and she criticized the Justice Department for not doing more to fight what she called “an awful, dark, underbelly of the world.” “It is as easy to order up a little girl online as it is a pepperoni pizza,” Wagner said in a fiery speech and questionand-answer session at the Family Research Council. “It is that easy.” She came touting her Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017, a controversial attempt to amend the 21-year-old Communications Decency Act to make it harder for Backpage and other online sites to argue they are only third-party hosts of others’ speech, and therefore protected under that law and the First Amendment. Courts have generally held in favor of Backpage in attempts to make it criminally or civilly liable for illegal sex advertising placed on the site. Wagner’s bill, introduced in April, now has 37 sponsors from both political parties. She said Tuesday that Sens. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., have told her they will push a companion measure in the Senate. Backpage, Wagner said, is “the auctioneer for online sex traicking. They are not a third-party platform.” Liz McDougall, a lawyer for Backpage, did not comment. But the site has aggressively defended itself as a host, not a creator, of content. McDougall has also argued that the actions of Wagner and others will only drive the sex trade further underground and beyond the reach of law enforcement. Wagner’s Stop Advertising Victims of Exploitation Act, called SAVE, was passed and signed into law by then-President Barack Obama in 2015. That law criminalized the knowing advertisement of illegal sex traicking. Her new bill would go further, and faces a tougher path to passage. Wagner said Congress has not done nearly enough to bring laws related to possible criminal conduct on the internet into the 21st century. Wagner, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and others earlier this month asked the Justice Department to investigate Backpage after The Washington Post reported that an unrelated lawsuit in Kansas City unearthed documents suggesting a contractor for Backpage solicits and creates sex ads. The Justice Department has acknowledged receipt of the letters asking for an investigation but had not responded as of Tuesday to Wagner. The Justice Department also did not respond Tuesday to several comment requests from this newspaper. Earlier this month, McDougall disputed The Washington Post story, calling it “sensationalist,” and argued that “Backpage does not create ads, merely hosts them.” Wagner announced this month she would not seek the U.S. Senate seat now held by McCaskill. At the time she made that announcement, she indicated that she wanted to dig in on a few key issues, including the sex trade. In her speech to the socially conservative FRC, she said the modern-day sex trade has historic connections to pre-Civil War slavery, saying that women were sold in what were called “fancy girl auctions” contemporaneously with slave labor. Federal courts in the late 19th century, she said, were “uncooperative” in interpreting the 13th Amendment to the Constitution that banned slavery to make it easier for law enforcement to crack down on sex traicking in the ensuing decades. Wagner said Congress “is failing to understand the evolving methods of recruitment” on the internet where, she said, victims “in plain sight” are being recruited, exploited and treated like criminals rather than victims.

Study inds brain trauma in NFL players 110 of 111 brains examined by researchers showed signs of neurodegenerative disease CTE BY RICK MAESE Washington Post

Researchers studying the link between football and chronic traumatic encephalopathy found that 99 percent of the brains donated by families of former NFL players showed signs of the neurodegenerative disease, according to a new study published Tuesday. In all, researchers from Boston University School of Medicine and the VA Boston Healthcare System examined 202 brains that belonged to men who played football at all levels and were later donated for research. They found CTE in 177 of them — 87 percent. While they found evidence of the disease across all levels of play, the highest percentage was found among those who competed at the highest level; all but one of the 111 brains belonging to ex-NFL players were diagnosed postmortem with CTE. “Obviously, this doesn’t represent the prevalence in the general population, but the fact that we’ve been able to gather this high a number of cases in such a short period of time says that this disease is not uncommon,” said neuropathologist Ann McKee, the researcher credited with some of the most high-profile CTE diagnoses. “In fact, I think it’s much more common than we currently realize. And more importantly, this is a problem in football that we need to address and we need to address now in order to bring some hope and optimism to football players.” McKee cautions that the study has some limitations and doesn’t attempt to pinpoint a CTE rate. The brains studied were mostly donated by concerned families, which means they weren’t random and

not necessarily representative of all men who have played football. “A family is much more likely to donate if they’re concerned about their loved one — if they’re exhibiting symptoms or signs that are concerning them, or if they died accidentally or especially if they committed suicide,” she said. “It skews for accidental deaths, suicide and individuals with disabling or discomforting symptoms.” While the study isn’t focused on causality, McKee says it provides “overwhelming circumstantial evidence that CTE is linked to football.” The NFL pledged $100 million for concussionrelated research last September — $60 million on technological development, with an emphasis on improving helmets, and $40 million earmarked for medical research — and in a statement a league spokesman expressed appreciation for the latest study. “The medical and scientific communities will

benefit from this publication and the NFL will continue to work with a wide range of experts to improve the health of current and former NFL athletes,” said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. “As noted by the authors, there are still many unanswered ques-

tions relating to the cause, incidence and prevalence of long-term effects of head trauma such as CTE. The NFL is committed to supporting scientific research into CTE and advancing progress in the prevention and treatment of head injuries.”

The study marks the largest CTE case series ever published. The research was drawn from a brain bank established and maintained by the VA Boston Healthcare System, Boston University School of Medicine and the Concussion Legacy Foundation. The 177 brains found to have CTE belonged to former players who had an average of 15 years of football experience. In addition to the NFL diagnoses, the group included three of 14 who played at the high school level, 48 of 53 who played in college, nine of 14 who competed semiprofessionally and seven of eight who played in the Canadian Football League. “To me, it’s very concerning that we have college-level players who have severe CTE who did not go on to play professionally,” McKee said. “That means they most likely retired before the age of 25 and we still are seeing in some of those individuals very severe repercussions.” The researchers distinguished between mild and

St. Louis family-owned since 1951

severe cases of CTE, finding the majority of former college (56 percent), semipro (56 percent) and professional (86 percent) players to have exhibited severe pathology. The impact of concussions and head trauma meted out on the football field has become an active area of study. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania looked at Wisconsin men who graduated high school in 1957, comparing those who played football in school and those who didn’t. The men were assessed for depression and cognitive impairment later in life — in their 60s and 70s — and the research found similar outcomes for those who played high school football and those who didn’t. While the disease can currently only be diagnosed post-mortem, the researchers urge for a wide-ranging longitudinal study to better understand the impact head trauma has on football players across all levels.

First GOP proposal falls 14 votes short DEBATE • FROM A1

gained sufficient traction with the rank-and-file. Fifty-seven senators opposed the measure known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act, while 43 supported it, portending a diicult road ahead for the GOP rollback efort.

BY ELISE VIEBECK, PAUL KANE AND ED O’KEEFE Washington Post

SHORT-LIVED VICTORY It was a disappointing turnaround for the GOP. Only hours earlier, a 51 to 50 vote, in which Vice President Mike Pence broke the tie, put Republicans in the position of taking up legislation that would affect one-sixth of the nation’s economy and how tens of millions Americans receive medical treatment. All 48 Democrats voted against the procedural motion, along with two GOP centrists, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. But the GOP has struggled mightily to get to this point, and there is no guarantee they will win final passage of a bill changing Obamacare. In a sign of how muddled the situation remains, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., took to the floor after voting to move ahead and declared, “I will not vote for the bill as it is today. It’s a shell of a bill right now.” Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., echoed these sentiments, tweeting, “I support a full repeal of Obamacare & will continue to oppose the BCRA.” President Donald Trump has been pushing aggressively for Republicans to pass a repealand-replace plan, and jabbed lawmakers this week by saying anyone who votes against kicking off debate is saying they are “fine with the Obamacare nightmare.” Speaking during a joint news conference Tuesday in the Rose Garden, Trump said he was “very, very sad” for the Republicans who opposed the motion but “very happy with the result” of the vote. “Now we’re all going to sit together and try to come up with something really spectacular,” the president said, though he acknowledged Republicans face “a narrow path” on health care. “It’s a very, very complex and diicult task, something I know quite a bit about.”

LOCAL VOTES Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., who had been urging the Senate to have a vote to see where senators stood, voted yes. The three Democratic senators from the St. Louis region — Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and Illinois’ Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth, voted no. As the vote proceeded in a somber Senate chamber, Blunt stood with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price at the back, and the two men occasionally exchanged whispers. Earlier, seated, Blunt occasionally looked up at protesters shouting “kill the bill,” and “let the people live,” as they were being escorted out of the chamber. Blunt noted later, “My hope is that we will be able to find common ground on solutions that meet the needs of Missourians, and create a more stable and reliable health care system.” After the vote, McCaskill huddled on the Senate floor for several minutes with the two Republican “no” voters — Murkowski and Collins. McCaskill told the Post-Dispatch that they she and the two Republicans were part of a bipartisan group of senators “that had already planned on getting together this week to begin to try to find a path forward in a bipartisan way.”

McCain votes, criticizes Senate for partisanship

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., with Sens. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., after the Senate voted Tuesday to begin debate on a health care bill.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., joined by (from left) Sens. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., John Thune, R-S.D., and John Cornyn, R-Texas, speak with reporters from Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

She said the writing seemed to be on the wall in divisions within the GOP that led to this moment, and that the only way forward will take Democratic votes. “This will either be a truncated process at the end of the debate on this reconciliation or they will pass something that is just a shell or a sham or a ruse or whatever you call it, to get them to conference (with House negotiators),” McCaskill said. “Then that painful process will begin all over again, because the fundamentals are not going to change. You have the conservatives who want to use this as a vehicle to gut the Medicaid program and make good on tax cuts to wealthy folks. Then you have more moderate Republicans who are in states that expanded Medicaid that are going to say ‘no, no, no, we are not going to do that.’ “That is the problem. They can’t reconcile those two,” McCaskill said. “That is why we need to get Democrats in the room so we can get critical mass of both parties” to pass “something that is reform but not the gutting of the Medicaid program.”

GOP’S SCALED-DOWN OPPORTUNITY Republican leaders now see a scaled-down version of the bill as perhaps their best chance of winning final passage on some kind of overhaul of Obamacare. If senators passed this stripped-down version — which some Republicans refer to as “skinny repeal” — they would set up a House-Senate conference to resolve the differences between the two proposals, buying Republicans

more time. The new strategy will allow Republicans to sustain their years-long efort to unwind the 2010 health care law, though they have yet settle on a replacement for it. But it is also is a tacit acknowledgment that more sweeping eforts to revise or even simply repeal the law cannot succeed, even as Republicans control both Congress and the White House. Under pressure from Trump and determined to deliver on a promise that helped fuel their political rise, Senate Republicans have coalesced around the idea that it is worth embarking on an unpredictable series of votes rather than abandon the efort altogether. “They expect us to tackle the big problems,” McConnell said on the Senate floor, referring to American voters. “All we have to do today is have the courage to begin the debate . . . and let the voting take us where it will.” The vote was marked by high drama, with Democrats waiting for Republicans to show where they stood before casting their votes. A group of protesters cried out “Kill the bill!” as voting began, prompting Capitol police officers to escort them out of the chamber, with their hands tied behind their backs in plastic handcufs. The Senate GOP’s top votecounter, John Cornyn, R-Texas, spoke for several minutes with fellow Republican Ron Johnson, of Wisconsin, before he cast his yes vote. Price, whom Trump teasingly threatened to fire if the motion did not pass, huddled on the floor during the roll call with Blunt. And when

the ailing McCain walked on the floor, the assembled senators burst out in applause. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., made one final plea to Republicans before the vote started. “Turn back. We can go through regular order. We want to work with you,” he said. “Turn back, before it’s too late.” Republicans are expected to vote on several different versions of health care legislation before getting to a final outcome — including a straight repeal of the ACA and the bill produced by McConnell that has so far failed to gain traction among Senate Republicans. The “skinny bill” leaders are now considering would repeal the ACA’s mandates that both individuals buy plans and that employer with 50 or more employees provide coverage, according to lobbyists and Senate aides, as well as eliminate the law’s tax on medical device manufacturers. But individuals briefed on this plan, who asked for anonymity because it had not been formally announced, said they could not predict whether it would ultimately pass. McCain, who was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, arrived at the Capitol after the vote was underway. His decision to return to Washington a week and a half after undergoing surgery helped turn the tide for GOP leaders, though the precise outcome of the vote remained in doubt until early Tuesday afternoon, several senators who were previously opposed to moving ahead with the health care debate announced they had changed their minds.

WASHINGTON • John McCain, maverick of the Senate, did not return to Capitol Hill and suddenly stop the progress of the Republican health care efort. But McCain, R-Ariz., now 80 and battling an aggressive form of brain cancer, did use his moment in the spotlight Tuesday to deliver a sobering message to colleagues. The Senate might be known as the world’s greatest deliberative body, McCain said, but it’s not clear it deserves that reputation today. The partisanship, the gridlock and the political subterfuge have dragged down the institution, he said. Senators’ work is “more partisan, more tribal more of the time than any other time I remember,” McCain told a rapt audience on the Senate floor. “Our deliberations can still be important and useful, but I think we’d all agree they haven’t been overburdened by greatness lately. And right now, they aren’t producing much for the American people.” McCain delivered a speech after casting a vote in favor of beginning debate on the Republican health care bill. But while his vote was critical to the success of that motion — Tuesday’s vote split the Senate 50-50, with Vice President Mike Pence breaking the tie in favor of starting debate — McCain criticized Republican leaders for their lack of transparency and suggested the health care efort might not ultimately succeed. “We’ve tried to [amend the Afordable Care Act] by coming up with a proposal behind closed doors in consultation with the administration, then springing it on skeptical members, trying to convince them it’s better than nothing, asking us to swallow our doubts and force it past a unified opposition. I don’t think that’s going to work in the end, and it probably shouldn’t,” McCain said. “Let’s trust each other. Let’s return to regular order. We’ve been spinning our wheels on too many important issues because we keep trying to find a way to win without help from across the aisle. That’s an approach that’s been employed by both sides, mandating legislation from the top down, without any support from the other side, with all the parliamentary maneuvers that requires.” McCain’s condition had become the latest reminder of the delicate GOP health care effort, with questions swirling over the last 11 days about whether his absence would imperil future votes.

Senators overheard saying Trump is ‘crazy,’ ‘I’m worried’ Live microphone picks up conversation about budget after subcommittee hearing BY PHILIP BUMP Washington Post

WASHINGTON • At the end of a

Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, Chairwoman Susan Collins, R-Maine, didn’t switch of her microphone. Apparently speaking to Sen. Jack Reed, R.I., the ranking Democrat of the committee, Collins discussed the federal budget — and President Donald Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing. After Reed praises Collins’ handling of the hearing, held by the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee, she laments the administration’s handling of spending.

“I swear, [the Office of Management and Budget] just went through and whenever there was ‘grant,’ they just X it out,” Collins says. “With no measurement, no thinking about it, no metrics, no nothing. It’s just incredibly irresponsible.” “Yes,” Reed replies. “I think — I think he’s crazy,” apparently referring to the president. “I mean, I don’t say that lightly and as a kind of a goofy guy.” “I’m worried,” Collins replies. “Oof,” Reed continues. “You know, this thing — if we don’t get a budget deal, we’re going to be paralyzed.” “I know,” Collins replies. “[Department of Defense] is going to be paralyzed, everybody is going to be paralyzed,” Reed says.

SenSusan Collins, R-Maine

Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I.

“I don’t think he knows there is a [Budget Control Act] or anything,” Collins says, referring to a 2011 law that defines the budget process. “He was down at the Ford commissioning,” Reed says, referring to Trump’s weekend event launching a new aircraft carrier, “saying, ‘I want them to pass my budget.’ OK, so we give him $54 billion and then we take it away across the board, which would cause chaos.” “Right,” Collins replies.

“It’s just — and he hasn’t — not one word about the budget. Not one word about the debt ceiling,” Reed says. “Good point,” Collins replies. “You’ve got [Budget Director Mick] Mulvaney saying we’re going to put in all sorts of stuff like a border wall. Then you’ve got [Treasury Secretary Steve] Mnuchin saying it’s got to be clean,” Reed continues. “We’re going to be back in September, and, you know, you’re going to have crazy people in the House.”

In a more salacious part of what was recorded, Collins then addressed a radio interview in which Rep. Blake Farenthold, RTexas, suggested that if Collins were a man, he’d have challenged her to a duel for opposing the Senate Republicans’ health care overhaul bill. “Did you see the one who challenged me to a duel?” Collins asks. “I know,” Reed replies. “Trust me. Do you know why he challenged you to a duel? ’Cause you could beat the (expletive) out of him.” “Well, he’s huge,” Collins replies. “And he — I don’t mean to be unkind, but he’s so unattractive it’s unbelievable. “Did you see the picture of him in his pajamas next to this Playboy bunny?” she continues, referring to an infamous photo of Farenthold. At that point, the mic went dead.

Centene wants to keep health care subsidies

Michael Kors steps out with Jimmy Choo for $1.2 billion

Trump has ofered no guarantees they will stay FROM STaFF and WIRe RePORTS

Centene Corp., one of the biggest insurers in the Affordable Care Act’s marketplaces, is urging the federal government to preserve cost-sharing payments for low-income customers to avoid hurting millions of people. The Clayton-based health insurer said Tuesday a betterthan-expected performance in those individual insurance markets enabled it to beat Wall Street expectations in the second quarter. But Chairman and CEO Michael Neidorf is worried about the fate of cost-sharing reduction payments that ease expenses such as deductibles for people with low incomes. Money for those payments has made it into congressional bills that aim to dismantle the Obama-era law, but the fate of that legislation is uncertain. Republicans have challenged those payments in court, and President Donald Trump has offered no guarantees that they will continue beyond this month. Neidorff said those payments and some other government support will be crucial to stabilize the exchanges, which have been marred by dwindling choices and soaring prices. “Any intentional act to stop these ... payments does not advance the debate on how to fix our health care delivery system,” he said. “It only hurts the millions of Americans who currently have affordable health care insurance in the marketplace.” Centene covers more than 1 million people through the state-based exchanges, which let people shop for coverage and then buy a plan with help from an income-based tax credit. While big national car-

Centene Corp., based in Clayton, beat Wall Street expectations in the second quarter.

riers such as UnitedHealth and Aetna have retreated from this market, Centene has switched to growth mode. Centene has continued to expand its footprint in its Obamacare business. It will offer exchange plans in Missouri in 2018, filling in what would have been 25 bare counties, or ones without an exchange plan next year. It’s also expanding into exchanges in Kansas and Nevada. Analysts have said Centene does well on the exchanges because it sticks with customers it knows. The insurer specializes in managing the state and federally funded Medicaid program for the poor. On the exchanges, it markets to low-income customers in areas where it has a Medicaid presence. “They came at the exchanges from a core Medicaid business and built (care) networks around largely the same providers,” said Jeferies analyst David Windley. People with low incomes are eligible for large tax credits that help keep their premiums affordable and shield them from big tax hikes. That makes it more likely they keep up with their insurance payments and renew their coverage.

Neidorff didn’t spell out on Tuesday what his company would do if the cost-sharing reduction payments end. But other insurers have said premiums will soar in many markets. Leerink analyst Ana Gupte said in a recent note that she expects more insurers to leave the markets if the future of payments isn’t clarified by September, and that could include Centene reducing its presence. But both she and Neidorf think the funding ultimately will be preserved. Neidorff said that he thinks congressional leaders won’t have the appetite to leave the “most vulnerable populations” without coverage. “I am personally, and I think corporately we are, convinced that when all the dust settles there will be subsidies in some form,” he said. Net earnings attributable to Centene rose to $254 million, or $1.44 per share, in the second quarter ended June 30, from $170 million, or 97 cents per share, a year earlier. Excluding items, Centene earned $1.59 per share. The company said its second-quarter earnings included a 17 cents per share net benefit related to risk adjustment under the ACA. Centene’s adjusted profit of $1.42 per share was above analysts’ expectations of $1.32 per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Revenue rose to $11.95 billion from $10.90 billion, slightly ahead of analysts’ average estimate of $11.69 billion. Centene shares fell by $1.35, or 1.6 percent, to close at $82.85. Centene provides coverage to 12.2 million individuals across the country. The Associated Press, Reuters and Samantha Liss of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

American fashion brand Michael Kors has bought luxury shoemaker Jimmy Choo, calling the brand “the ideal partner.” BLOOMBeRG

U.S. retailer Michael Kors has agreed to buy Jimmy Choo for about $1.2 billion, as the maker of handbags popular with the commuter set seeks to restore lost luster by adding “Sex and the City” stilettos. The purchase of Jimmy Choo, Michael Kors’ first deal to expand beyond its own brand name since its initial public ofering in 2011, gives a presence in higher-end luxury to the New York fashion and accessories company, in a move similar to Coach Inc.’s 2015 acquisition of shoemaker Stuart Weitzman. London-based Jimmy Choo rose to prominence in the late 1990s, boosted by high-profile devotees including the late Princess Diana and the fictional Carrie Bradshaw in the television series “Sex and the City.” The deal comes amid consolidation in the U.S. luxury industry, with Coach also agreeing to buy Kate Spade & Co. this year. “Again, Michael Kors follows the path of Coach — and again, on steroids,” wrote Luca Solca, an analyst at Exane BNP Paribas. “After a meteoric rise and spectacular crash, it is now the time to recycle cash into other brands.” The company has been closing stores and reducing its exposure

to department stores in an efort to boost its exclusivity. Alongside Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, Michael Kors has struggled to maintain its brand image after broadly distributing its products in discount stores and outlet malls. On the Macy’s website, for example, the brand’s signature $298 tote bags are currently sold for as low as $149. The retailer has stores at Plaza Frontenac, St. Louis Galleria, West County Center and St. Louis Premium Outlets. Chief Executive Officer John Idol said the company still plans to make more acquisitions of luxury brands and would consider deals in the luxury footwear and accessories categories — especially those like Jimmy Choo that are backed by a founder “who has a true vision for what their brand is.” Idol said the goal is to create an “international luxury company” and added that Michael Kors would be less interested in brands that are “a little bit more broadly distributed” that rely on wholesale, he said on a conference call. Jimmy Choo competes with the likes of Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin for the attention of fans of women’s shoes. The brand gets its name from its Malaysian-born co-founder, who created it in 1996.

Express Scripts tops expectations • Express Scripts on Tuesday reported better-thanexpected second-quarter proits on slightly higher revenue. The north St. Louis County pharmacy beneit manager said it earned $801.8 million in the period ended June 30. On a per-share basis, the north St. Louis Countybased company said it had proit of $1.37. Earnings, adjusted for amortization costs, were $1.73 per share. That beat Wall Street expectations. The average estimate of 12 analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for earnings of $1.71 per share. The results also compared favorably to year-earlier earnings of $720.7 million, or $1.13. Revenue rose slightly to $25.35 billion, missing Street forecasts. Nine analysts surveyed by Zacks expected $25.4 billion. Express Scripts, which reported results after markets closed on Tuesday, also reiterated its belief that its contract with insurance giant Anthem will be extended. “If we do enter into new contract with Anthem, it would be on terms signiicantly less favorable to us than current contract,” the company added. Express Scripts shares have fallen 9 percent since the beginning of the year, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index has climbed 11 percent. In the inal minutes of trading on Tuesday, shares hit $62.56, a drop of 19 percent in the last 12 months. Supervalu shares soar on earnings • Shares in Supervalu Inc., parent of Kirkwood-based Shop ’n Save, jumped 15 percent on Tuesday, their biggest one-day gain in four years after the grocery wholesaler and retailer reported quarterly sales that topped some analyst expectations. Supervalu, based in Eden Prairie, Minn., reported iscal irst-quarter net sales of $4 billion, up 6.3 percent and marginally higher than average analyst expectations, according to Thomson Reuters data. The company’s wholesale net sales rose 12.4 percent in the quarter, an increase that was better than he expected. Supervalu shares rose 49 cents

to close at $3.74, their largest oneday percentage gain since 2013. Enterprise Financial proit slips • Expenses tied to Enterprise Financial’s acquisition of Eagle Bank led to a decline in second quarter proit. Clayton-based Enterprise Financial, the parent company of Enterprise Bank & Trust, reported a $12 million proit for the quarter that ended June 30, or 50 cents a share, down from $12.3 million, or 61 cents a share, a year earlier. Total deposits rose 29 percent from a year earlier, to $3.9 billion, boosted by its February acquisition of Jeferson County Bancshares Inc., the parent of Eagle Bank and Trust Company of Missouri. U.S. Steel bounces back • United States Steel Corp. shares jumped more than 9 percent after the steelmaker said its second-quarter earnings rebounded from a loss and improved more than $300 million. The Pittsburgh-based company said it earned $261 million, or $1.48 per share. That compares with a loss of $46 million, or 32 cents per share, a year ago. Without one-time gains, the company said it would have earned $1.07 per share. That’s more than double the 40 cents per share that the eight analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research predicted on average. The company’s shares gained more than 9 percent, or $2.28, to sell for $26.72 in after-hours trading Tuesday. A-B InBev eyes Vietnam • Vietnam said Australia’s Carlton & United Breweries (CUB), part of the world’s largest brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev, has expressed interest in becoming a strategic investor of Vietnam’s top brewers Sabeco and Habeco. CUB’s general director conveyed the interest to Vietnam’s Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue during their meeting in Sydney on Monday, according to a statement on the government’s website. Vietnam has one of the world’s biggest beer markets in Southeast Asia. From staf and wire reports

U.S. stocks climb back to records as corporate proits keep rising McDonald’s, Caterpillar post results better than expected ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK • U.S. stock indexes returned to records Tuesday as corporate profits continue to come in better than analysts expected. McDonald’s and Caterpillar were among the big companies that reported healthierthan-forecast results. Sharp moves higher in prices for oil, metals and other commodities also helped lift companies that produce energy and raw materials. That more than ofset losses for health care companies and stocks that pay relatively big dividends, which were hurt by a rise in Treasury yields. The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose 7.17 points, or 0.3 percent, to an all-time high of 2,477.08. It was the first gain for the index in four days.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 100.26, or 0.5 percent, to 21,613.43. The Nasdaq composite added 1.37 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 6,412.17, and the Russell 2000 index of small-cap stocks gained 12.33, or 0.9 percent, to 1,450.39. Both the Nasdaq and Russell set records. Leading the way for the market were energy stocks, which benefited from a second strong day for the price of oil. Benchmark U.S. crude rose $1.55, or 3.3 percent, to settle at $47.89 per barrel. Brent crude, the international standard, gained $1.60, or 3.3 percent, to $50.20 a barrel. That helped energy stocks in the S&P 500 climb 1.3 percent, tied for the biggest gain among the 11 sectors that make up the index. Financial stocks were also

strong after a pickup in interest rates raised expectations that banks could charge more for loans and pocket bigger profits. The rise in yields came as the Federal Reserve began a twoday policy meeting. Many investors are bracing for markets to get shakier as the Fed moves further away record-low interest rates and big stimulus for the economy. Contrarians are also concerned about how much the stock market has climbed, and how smooth the ride has been, as expectations have built up this year for corporate profits will keep piling higher. “There’s a lot of hope built into the market at current levels,” said Rob McIver, portfolio manager at the $6.3 billion Jensen Quality Growth fund. “We’re cautioning investors to be cautious and conservative.”

Rival billionaires Musk and Zuckerberg clash over future of artiicial intelligence REUTERS

SAN FRANCISCO • Silicon Valley baron Elon Musk insulted rival billionaire Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday, escalating a tech wizard war of words over whether robots will become smart enough to kill their human creators. “His understanding of the subject is limited,” Musk said in a tweet about the Facebook Inc. founder whose algorithms and other technology revolutionized social media and won 2 billion monthly active users. Previously, Zuckerberg was asked about Musk’s views on the dangers of robots. In his response, Zuckerberg chided “naysayers” whose “dooms-

day scenarios” were “irresponsible.” Zuckerberg and Musk, who is chief executive of electric car maker Tesla Inc. and rocket company SpaceX, have been waging a debate at a distance over the past few days on the dangers of artificial intelligence. The two sharply disagree on whether tougher government regulation is needed for the technology. Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the tweet, which Musk sent at 3:07 a.m. California time from his verified account, @elonmusk. The term artificial intelligence, or AI, is used to de-

scribe machines with computer code that learns as it goes. The technology is becoming widely used in sectors such as health care, entertainment and banking. Fear that machines could become so intelligent that they might rise up and overthrow humanity is a common theme in science fiction. Musk told a gathering of U.S. governors this month that the potential dangers are not so imaginary, and that they should move to regulate AI. “I keep sounding the alarm bell, but until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react, because it seems so ethereal,” Musk said.

House votes to kill consumer lawsuit rule Measure has barred inancial institutions from forcing their customers to use arbitration BY LISA LAMBERT Reuters

WASHINGTON • The U.S. House

of Representatives on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to erase a new rule that lets bank and credit-card customers band together in lawsuits, as the agency that drafted the measure, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, moves closer to the center stage of congressional politics. The Republican-led House voted 231 to 190 along strict party lines to kill the rule barring financial institutions from forcing customers to agree to take future disputes to arbitration, instead of the courts, as a condition of opening accounts. It now goes to the Senate. Under the Congressional Review Act, both chambers can vote to repeal a new rule with simple majorities. The Republican majority in the

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, helped write the legislation that overturns the consumer-protection rule. The Senate has yet to vote on the plan.

Senate is slimmer. If the party loses just three lawmakers, the CFPB rule, finalized 15 days ago, will survive. Also, the Senate calendar is currently full with health care and tax reform, and lawmakers

may not get around to voting on the rule. Republicans say “mandatory arbitration” works quickly to garner individuals substantial awards, while group lawsuits benefit only the attorneys who

file them. Democrats contend the contract clauses rob customers of constitutional rights. Because companies hire the arbitrators and proceedings are secret, Democrats also say the process is rigged against consumers. The Senate is being pressured on both sides by major interest groups, including the pro-business Chamber of Commerce and the workers’ rights group the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations. Much of the fight, though, is about the CFPB itself, which is appealing a legal decision that its structure is unconstitutional. Now that Republicans control Congress and the White House, the six-year-old agency’s future is in doubt. President Donald Trump’s administration has argued against the CFPB in court, the House has approved legisla-

tion radically overhauling it, and the acting comptroller of the currency has attacked the arbitration rule. Senate Banking Committee Chairman Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, helped author the resolution to kill the new rule. Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., held a news conference on Tuesday rallying supporters to protect it. Warren originally came up with the idea of an agency to shield individuals from predatory lending and help prevent the type of devastation average people experienced during the 2007-09 financial crisis. During Tuesday’s fiery floor debate, Republicans lambasted the CFPB for having a single director who both writes and enforces rules and for dictating how businesses and customers interact. Democrats cited how the agency has returned billions of dollars to wronged consumers.

House Republicans link tax reform to budget deal But opponents in the GOP appear not to have been swayed by arguments for reconciliation process BY LINDSEY MCPHERSON CQ-Roll Call

WASHINGTON • “Clearly, no budget, no tax reform.” That comment made by House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady on Thursday, and then again for good measure on Monday, is the primary selling point on which House Republican leaders are hoping to whip up enough support to pass their fiscal 2018 budget resolution. Yet that pitch has done little to appease the naysayers. With the budget still lacking the needed votes, some GOP tax writers are concerned about the future of the years-long goal to rewrite the tax code. But most of that concern remains shrouded in a cloud of optimism. “I’m confident there are 218 Republicans in the House

who came here to do bold, progrowth tax reform,” Brady said. “And they know we can’t do it together until we have budget and reconciliation.” Brady, R-Texas, is just one of many members who have said in recent weeks that they believe the desire to overhaul the tax code will push enough GOP lawmakers to ultimately vote for the budget resolution. However, even if sufficient support was to materialize, a vote before the House departs at the end of the week for its monthlong summer recess appears unlikely. The House GOP budget includes reconciliation instructions for a deficit-neutral tax overhaul, as well as $203 billion in cuts to mandatory spending. If the House and Senate both pass and reconcile their budgets with a set of reconciliation instruc-

tions, they can use the resulting process to fast-track a tax overhaul without the threat of a filibuster in the Senate and rely solely on GOP votes. “The budget is the gateway to tax reform,” House Budget Committee member Todd Rokita of Indiana said. Without the budget reconciliation process that allows for a simple-majority vote in the Senate, Republicans would need bipartisan cooperation on a tax plan to ensure its passage. GOP leaders have efectively ruled out that option, citing partisan divisions. However, intraparty tension is already threatening to derail a tax code rewrite before Republicans even release a bill. Conservatives, mostly from the hard-line House Freedom Caucus, have remained opposed to the budget resolution because they

PRESENTS

feel the reconciliation instructions do not provide a high enough target for mandatory spending cuts and because they want more details on what the tax bill would look like. Specifically, they want to ensure the tax plan would not be contingent on a border adjustment tax on imports that they are not on board with. Moderates, meanwhile, are concerned that attaching mandatory spending cuts to a reconciliation measure for overhauling the tax code will make the latter more difficult to achieve. They would also like to see a bipartisan, bicameral budget deal to change the top-line spending numbers dictated by the Budget Control Act before voting on a budget. “Budgets are always some of the toughest votes,” House Ways and Means member Devin

Nunes said. Nunes, R-Calif., said he is hopeful the prospect of a tax overhaul and the ability to use the budget process to put GOP policy ideas into law will provide for a diferent outcome than last year, when House Republicans never got enough members on board to pass their budget blueprint. While Republicans did not pass a full budget last year, they did so early this year using a socalled shell budget — one empty of policy details — to set up the reconciliation process so they could address health care. So far, members have said they’ve heard no talk of doing another shell budget or any other Plan B for what will happen if they can’t pass the budget resolution that the House Budget Committee reported out unanimously last Wednesday.

Glass houses and stones MetroLink controversy masks deeper issues of public transparency.

A

mid the exploding controversy over reports of apparent misfeasance by St. Louis County police officers assigned to patrol MetroLink,it’s important to remember that there are bigger problems affecting Metro’s security and efficiency. A major power struggle is afoot between officials in St. Louis County and the Bi-State Development Agency, which manages the regional transit system. Both entities are to blame for what ails MetroLink. The criticism leveled at St. Louis County officers and their commanders is well-founded, given the overwhelming evidence laid out in reports by the Post-Dispatch’s Tony Messenger. Officers covered over security cameras inside a MetroLink station office. Some lied about being on patrol when they weren’t. Security offices became the preferred venue for extended goof-off sessions. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar dismissed the reports as “anecdotal,” clearly an effort to dodge the embarrassing reality of MetroLink passengers suffering a security nightmare while officers napped and chatted. The St. Louis County Council has every right to demand answers, as do state legislators. They deserve a more stand-up response than “anecdotal” from Belmar. These are serious buck-stops-here management lapses. That said, we also take issue with BiState board chairman Vince Schoemehl, who called for Belmar’s resignation. He’s hardly objective in this matter as the chief backer of Bi-State chief John Nations, who is feuding publicly with Belmar and St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger.

Nations has long wanted Metro’s security force to be certified as an independent police agency. He and Schoemehl appear to be using the current controversy to press that case. Adolphus Pruitt, St. Louis chapter president of the NAACP, agrees Metro needs an independent police force. They are wrong. Without question, Belmar and Stenger helped erect barriers to regional cooperation on transit security by imposing ridiculous conditions on a security contract between Bi-State and the county. The conditions would have freed the county from having to account for officers’ overtime expenses, manpower management and cost increases, among other things. The public must demand nothing less than 100 percent transparency and accountability. This is why Bi-State has no room to judge anyone. When they’ve been pressed to show greater transparency, Bi-State officials have insisted that, as a federal compact, they don’t have to comply with Sunshine Law requests. Wrong. Any public entity that operates in the dark has no business accusing others of lacking transparency. The region needs less fragmentation, not more. A Metro police force operating in secrecy is the worst possible answer to this current controversy. Belmar does himself no favors with his evasive answers, especially while he seeks to take command responsibility over MetroLink security in a cooperative arrangement with St. Clair County and the city. He’s a big part of the problem, but hardly the only one.

A better slogan Democrats try to change the message to change results.

A

s slogans go, “A Better Deal” doesn’t carry the promise that the “New Deal” did, nor the romance of “The New Frontier” or the ambition of “The Great Society.” In fact, the Democratic Party’s new slogan calls to mind House Speaker Paul Ryan’s, R-Wis., conservative manifesto “A Better Way,” the last thing Democrats were aiming for. The slogan itself is less important than the Democratic leadership’s decision that the party is going to stress economic justice above other issues.“A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future” is the banner under which party candidates will run in 2018, demonstrating that the party has learned its lesson from 2016. In recent years, the Democrats have been less a cohesive political party than an amalgam of identity politics built around race, ethnicity, reproductive rights, gay rights and sundry other causes. The party’s challenge is to retain the passion of these groups even as it de-emphasizes their issues. “When you lose an election with someone who has 40 percent popularity, you look in the mirror and say: What did we do wrong?” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York said Sunday.“We didn’t tell people what we stood for.” In fact, Democrats had a net gain of two Senate seats and six House seats in 2016. They’d just hoped for more. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had nearly 3 million more popular votes than Republican Donald Trump. But Trump won the

Electoral College majority by harnessing support among white working class voters, the former heart of the Democratic constituency. Thus the soul-searching and recrimination since November. Bill Clinton won the presidency in 1992 and 1996 as a “Third Way” Democrat willing to make alliances with Wall Street, in part to offset declining financial help from organized labor. Barack Obama won in 2008 and 2012 by turning out minority, young and women voters in huge numbers, building a coalition of identity groups around his singular candidacy. Hillary Clinton tried to split the difference. She offered a policy paper for everyone. But white male working-class voters weren’t ready for a woman president, at least not that woman. In the meantime, a cranky 73-year-old socialist from Vermont almost ran her down in the primaries. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ message was pure economic populism.“A Better Way” might as well be called “The Sanders Way.” The Democrats’ new message includes 10 million new jobs through tax credits and infrastructure spending. They will go after the pharmaceutical industry for price gouging. They’ll go after big banks, financial inequities and corporate oligarchy (trying to downplay Schumer’s own deep ties to Wall Street banks). That’s a tough needle to thread, but with an incumbent president working overtime to undermine his own party’s standing, the Democrats have ample room for experimentation.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Take steps to reduce increasing costs of medical care Congratulations to Steven H. Lipstein on his timely commentary about health care reform (“Collapse to compromise: A better way to health care reform,” July 23). Hopefully, our politicians will study it carefully. Now come other diicult issues that Lipstein cannot discuss because of his position as chief executive of BJC HealthCare: • The large percentage of Medicare costs in the last year of life — not to mention the sufering — must be addressed. Physicians and hospitals are always concerned about being sued, resulting in much unnecessary treatment. Medical malpractice laws and the huge rewards must be changed by the federal government. • Some in our world of medicine — hospitals, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies and even some physicians — accumulate obscene profits. The government has set the stage for such abuse. • The huge expense to Medicaid for caring for the poor in nursing homes as the population ages is unacceptable. Much of this cost is related to dementia. Euthanasia is in our future. Sweden is addressing this issue now. • The costs of medical care are totally askew. The average couple turning 65 now will have medical costs of $11,369 annually and $21,060 at age 75. Reducing these costs is a must. Younger Americans cannot be expected to bear insurance premiums to cover older Americans. We taxpayers must share such costs. • Finally, we have a health epidemic in the U.S.: obesity with concurrent diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The annual medical cost is in the billions. A dozen cases of the Zika virus would cause panic, yet most seem unconcerned about the millions of people involved with obesity and the resulting pathology. A number of politicians of both parties must be replaced to reach necessary goals. Above all, we must not allow the ever-increasing costs of medical care to supersede other vital necessities such as education, defense, public works and safety. Dr. Roman Patrick • St. Louis County

Both sides play partisan games with health care Republicans spent seven years promising to repeal and replace the failing Affordable Care Act because of its rising premiums, high deductibles and limited availability. After the 2016 election, with control of the House, Senate and White House, and seven years to prepare, I would have expected a repeal-andreplace bill on President Donald Trump’s desk on Jan. 21. But it didn’t happen. The Democrats spent seven years denying the obvious problems with the ACA, a bill they passed with no Republican votes using procedural tricks and side deals. Both sides continue to play partisan games, wasting taxpayers’ time and money on pointless hearings and political bickering, ignoring the immediate needs of their constituents. Why should members of Congress worry about health care when they have among the best insurance in the country? Republicans should learn from the Democrats’ mistake in passing the ACA on a purely partisan basis. Democrats should learn from Republicans that obstruction doesn’t help Americans. The solution is to put their constituents before their egos, be willing to compromise, and put together a plan that

actually helps Americans, not just make promises they can’t keep to buy votes. Dr. Patricia McGuire • Ladue

Single-payer system could cut costs, cover everyone As we debate how to best do health care, everyone wants lower premiums and lower out-of-pocket expenses. I also want everyone to be covered. Yet the best way to do that is not even on the table. It is the single-payer system, a national health care system. Think Medicare for all. It is not on the table because insurance companies would have their piece of the pie cut out and because so many do not trust the government. Yet only 8 percent of Medicare beneficiaries rated their insurance as fair or poor. When Canadians were asked if their public health care should be strengthened or if for-profit services should be expanded, 86.2 percent said strengthen the public health care system. In Great Britain 60 percent of those surveyed in 2015 said that they were quite or very satisfied with their National Health System. What is more, Canadians, Brits and residents of every other industrialized country get much more for their health care dollar than we do. Great Britain spends about $4,000 per person, Canada about $5,000 and the U.S. about $9,000. I am all for repeal and replace. But I would replace our inefficient and expensive system with a single-payer system that would both cut costs and cover everyone. Gary Werkmeister • Crystal City

Putin is no friend of democracy, the United States The Russians are not our friends. They are our enemies. Today wherever an AK-47 opposes an American soldier, communism is there. Vladimir Putin is a student of Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. The core values of Presidents Eisenhower and Reagan ofer opposition to communism in any form. The Russian oligarchy opposes the very concept of a democracy. Within their own country, freedom of speech has been trampled if not by arrest then by assassination. Scores of journalists have been murdered to date. As a former Vietnam veteran and intelligence specialist, I believe I have a good understanding of Russia’s motives for tampering with our democracy. There are three reasons: One is to make up for the embarrassment they sufered with the breakup of the Soviet Union. The second is to discourage democracy across the globe. Finally, they want to be the most powerful county in the world to the detriment of the United States. Recently the Senate overwhelmingly passed the Russian sanctions bill. The senators who regularly receive intelligence briefings on Russians’ clandestine motives against the U.S. understand what is going on. Now the president, who has dismissed our own intelligence communities’ opinion and supported Russia, has put in power as the White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci. He told the Russian news agency TASS that he did not support the sanctions, saying the “sanctions probably galvanized the nation with the nation’s president.” Putin is promoting the downfall of democracy.

Trump’s problem is not communication. It’s leadership President’s greatest need is an administration capable of even the baby steps of governing. MICHAEL GERSON Washington Post

Anthony Scaramucci’s rollout as Donald Trump’s new communications director received mainly good reviews. He is, as any White House job in the current administration requires, a skilled sycophant. His on-air abjection — including a Sunday talk show apology for past disloyalty made directly into the camera — smacks of self-criticism during China’s Cultural Revolution. But comrade Scaramucci does have a knack for being aggressive without being angry. And he is good on TV, which means he’ll play a starring role in Trump’s main obsession. The president’s intention in choosing Scaramucci was clear from the announcement.“We have accomplished so much,” said Trump in his statement,“and we are being given credit for so little.” Scaramucci’s calling is to be a more effective harvester of credit. This staff change is probably a good thing for the president. It also

reveals a complete blindness about the true source of his administration’s current struggles. Who can look at the wreck of the White House — bitterly divided, dysfunctional and hemorrhaging leaks — and think a better communications approach is the answer? Who can look at the wreck of Trump’s agenda — stymied in spite of Republican control of the House and Senate — and think the real problem is insufficient credit-taking on television? I could name half a dozen White House jobs that more urgently needed new blood — including the chief of staff — than communications director. Jobs in the press department are what the press and the president mainly see. But obvious problems are not always the most urgent. To be fair, the idea that words are always the real problem is not unique to the Trump administration. I saw the same communications fallacy in my White House experience during George W. Bush’s presidency. It is typical for politicians and party officials to believe that the fault lies, not in themselves, but in their flacks. As head of presidential

Scaramucci

speechwriting, I heard more than my share of “if only.” If only the administration would make suchand-such a point, the Katrina mess could be put behind us. If only the president said some magic words — suggested language attached — the erosion in support for the Iraq War would be reversed. If only the president were to give 60 speeches in 60 days on Social Security reform, Americans would finally understand the problem and our plan would pass. We actually tried that last one in 2005. The trip was carefully designed to pressure gettable Democratic senators. Bush was

loose, informed and effective. And the plan never even got out of committee. We did not have a communications problem. We had a reality problem — as we did with Katrina and Iraq. In such cases, hiring a new head of speechwriting would probably not have helped. The Trump administration’s reality problem is a historically unpopular president, pushing historically unpopular legislation (at least on health care), in a historically divided party, to a historically polarized country. Hiring a new head of communications will not fundamentally alter this state of affairs. Words generally cannot improve facts on the ground, but they do have the power to complicate them. Part of the reason Trump is, from his perspective,“given credit for so little” is that so little has been accomplished. But another part is the insanely high expectations that Trump’s own words have created.“You’re going to have such great health care at a tiny fraction of the cost,” he promised. “It’s going to be so easy.” Tax reform benefiting the middle class would come in the first 100 days. He would build an

Liberal inluences appear to be unduly inluencing the nominating process for judges. BY NICK SCHROER

ASSOCIATED PRESS

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner (right) arrives at the Capitol yesterday with his attorney, Abbe Lowell.

He explains his repeated lapses by saying, essentially, that he is new to politics.

Do you have a problem — trouble at work, relationship stress, or just some really hard math homework — that you can’t resolve on your own? You should turn to the man who is fixing problems for more than 300 million Americans. You should ask Jared Kushner. President Trump does it. When he needed somebody to negotiate peace in the Middle East, he asked Kushner. When he needed somebody to be his point man with China and with Mexico, he asked Kushner. When he needed somebody to solve the opioid epidemic, reform veterans’ care, overhaul the criminal justice system and reinvent the entire federal government, Trump again turned to Kushner. Even when he just needed somebody to strap a flak jacket over his navy blazer and fly off to Baghdad, Kushner was the one he asked. The president’s 36-year-old sonin-law has done all this and more, even while keeping up with a demanding family life since the election: a beach trip to Hawaii, a ski trip to Aspen, another ski trip to British Columbia. Clearly he has time to help you, too. Kid has a fever? Rattle in the transmission? Weeds in the lawn? Ring around the collar? Ask JK. But what happens when Jared Kushner has a problem? What happens if — and I’m speaking strictly hypothetically here — Kushner were to neglect to mention in his security-clearance forms that he had had more than 100 meetings with foreigners, including some Russians? Sure, you can ask him. But he won’t have a good answer. The seen-but-not-heard Kushner met with the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday (at a session closed to the public, naturally). He explained his repeated lapses — he had to amend one disclosure form three times — by saying, essentially, that he was new

impenetrable physical wall across the continent and “the country of Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such a wall.” There would be a package spurring a trillion dollars in infrastructure spending. Middle East peace is “frankly maybe not as difficult as people have thought over the years.” And further: “I will give you everything” and achieve “every dream you ever dreamed for your country.” The president would probably not be politically comfortable in fulfilling some of my dreams. But even more generally, this is what happens when a politician promises the world while knowing so little about how it actually works. Trump’s greatest need is not someone who will defend him on cable television. It is an administration capable of even the baby steps of governing — defining a positive, realistic agenda and selling it to Congress, starting with one’s own party. Trump does not have a communications problem; he has a leadership problem.

“My experience was in business, not politics. I must have received thousands of calls, letters and emails from people looking to talk or meet on a variety of issues and topics, including hundreds from outside the United States, I could not be responsive to everyone.” —Jared Kushner

to politics and so terribly busy that he couldn’t keep up with everything. And he used the hoariest excuse of all: He blamed his assistant. “My experience was in business, not politics,” he said in a written statement, and described himself as overwhelmed. “I must have received thousands of calls, letters and emails from people looking to talk or meet on a variety of issues and topics, including hundreds from outside the United States,” he wrote, and “I could not be responsive to everyone.” He explained that he just didn’t know he was sitting down with people promising dirt on Hillary Clinton from the Russian government because it “was typical for me to receive 200 or more emails a day during the campaign. I did not have the time to read every one.” Kushner explained how a full accounting of his foreign contacts fell through the cracks “amid the scramble of finalizing the unwinding of my involvement from my company, moving my family to Washington, completing the paper work to divest assets and resign from my outside positions and

complete my security and financial disclosure forms.” A “miscommunication” led his assistant to file his form prematurely. That’s the trouble with Kushner’s defense in the Russia imbroglio. He’s essentially arguing that he isn’t corrupt — he’s just in over his head. He didn’t really know what he was doing, and he was too busy. Coming from the man charged with handling everything from Middle East peace to opioids, this isn’t reassuring. This inexperience defense is consistent with Kushner’s filing Friday showing that he had previously neglected to disclose more than 70 assets, as required, including an art collection (with wife Ivanka Trump) worth as much as $25 million. The Middle East peace negotiator also did not disclose that he held Israeli government bonds. Yet Kushner’s father-in-law entrusted him with what is arguably the most difficult portfolio ever to be assigned to a White House aide. His previous experience: running his family real estate business, which he took over in 2005 when his father was convicted of tax evasion. The next year, Kushner bought a $1.8 billion Manhattan building, near the top of the real estate cycle, and his family has been trying to find investors to keep the project afloat. So now Kushner is defending himself by playing the ingenue: “All of these were tasks that I had never performed on a campaign previously,” and “I could not even remember the name of the Russian ambassador.” Kushner, arguing that he didn’t seek to create a “back channel” with Russia, explained that he merely asked the Russian ambassador if he “had an existing communications channel at his embassy we could use.” The defense leaves one big question unanswered: Why is a man of such inexperience in charge of so much? Don’t ask. Dana Milbank dana.milbank@washpost.com Copyright The Washington Post

As an attorney in the great state of Missouri, I know that a fair and impartial judiciary is of the utmost importance. However, upon examining the recent nominations issued by the Appellate Judicial Commission this year, I am incredibly worried that the Missouri Plan as currently implemented simply takes too much power away from the people of our state, thus allowing liberal interests to step in and potentially tilt the balance of our highest courts. Looking back at the last 10 panels of nominees for the Missouri Supreme Court — panels of three people each, totaling 30 nominees stretching from 1995 to today — the Appellate Judicial Commission has nominated only three Republicans, just 10 percent of the overall total. When 20 years of nominations in a heavily Republican state yields only three Republican nominees to our highest court, it is evident that there is a problem with the process and, furthermore, that the problem likely has partisan roots. Of course, even more telling than the sheer lack of Republicans nominated for the court is the ideological makeup of the panels themselves. Under Democratic governors, the Appellate Judicial Commission has nominated panels of liberals who would be politically palatable to that administration. This allowed those governors to have a real choice about who serves on the Missouri Supreme Court, with three viable options to choose from for every vacancy. However, under Republicans, the Appellate Judicial Commission has routinely nominated two liberals who would not be acceptable to that administration, along with a single Republican, forcing the governor’s hand. This is not an isolated incident; it has happened each of the three times that a panel was presented to a Republican governor in the past 20 years, demonstrating a distinct pattern of partisanship in the supposedly nonpartisan judicial selection process. Supporters of the current system say that they are simply nominating the most qualified individuals and that the lack of Republican representation on the panels is simply a function of very few applying. However, the most recent list of applicants would show that this is absolutely false. A number of highly qualified Republican judges, attorneys and public officials applied, but still the Appellate Judicial Commission chose to put only one Republican on the panel of nominees. This certainly makes it appear that liberal interests are unduly influencing the nominating process. This poses a significant risk to our judiciary, because the perception of bias can undermine public faith in the institution. When they enter a courtroom, Missourians deserve to be sure that they will not be facing a court predisposed to decide a case in a certain way. However, to have such clear bias present in the nominating process is causing many to question whether the scales of justice have been tilted as well. I believe the only way to change this is to tip the balance of power on the Appellate Judicial Commission back in the favor of the people of Missouri. We have to ensure the people of our state have more impact than special interest groups, and I strongly believe that rank-and-file Missourians — not just those with a law degree — need more opportunities to have a voice in the nominating process. During the coming weeks and months, I will be working closely with fellow Republicans to suggest changes to the Missouri Plan, and I strongly encourage readers to let me know what you believe we must do to help restore balance to the Appellate Judicial Commission. In our state, and every state in this nation, Lady Justice must remain blind to bias, rather than tilting her scales in favor of liberal interests, or any interest for that matter. State Rep.

Despite Trump’s Paris stand, Venezuela says Gore optimistic on climate Rubio, CIA trying to topple leader

Other nations have held irm, and states, cities are taking action BY JOHN CARUCCI associated Press

NEW YORK • Al Gore admits he was frustrated upon hearing the news last month that President Donald Trump was pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, but since then he’s become more optimistic. Gore worried that a U.S. withdrawal from the treaty would compel other nations to opt out of the historical pact for adopting clean energy solutions. But that’s not what happened. “The whole rest of the world has redoubled their commitment. And in this country, the governors and the mayors and the business leaders have all said, ‘We’re still in the agreement, and we’re gonna fill the gap. We’re gonna meet the U.S. commitment, regardless of what Donald Trump does,” Gore told The Associated Press last week at a special screening for “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.” It follows the 2006 Oscarwinning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” and continues the conversation of finding solutions for the effects of climate change, including an emphasis on renewable energy. Much like the first film, Gore is front and center in leading the discussion. It’s been a remarkable second act for Gore since winning the popular vote but losing the Electoral College in the 2000 presidential election. There’s no question that Gore was devastated by the loss, but his stature as an important voice for environmental issues has proven equally successful, as he amassed a Nobel Prize, Academy Award, an Emmy, and a Grammy for his dedication to climate change activism. “I’m under no illusion that there’s any position with as much chance to do good as president of the United States, but

This image released by Paramount Pictures shows former Vice President Al Gore in “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.”

I’m very grateful to have found another way to serve the public interests. I’m devoting my life to this and hoping to make a big difference,” Gore said. CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who also attended the debut, agrees that Gore “had done pretty well for himself” after the disputed 2000 presidential election. “Al Gore could have done many things after he was not inaugurated in 2001, but what he did was become the leading global spokesman for perhaps the most important scientific and environmental cause of our lifetime, and he won a Nobel Prize in the bargain. So I don’t think anyone could quarrel with how Al Gore has decided to live his life,” he said. A big part of Gore’s mission depends on convincing people that climate change is not a hoax. Climate forecasts are based on science that shows the global mean surface temperature continues to rise, due in part to an increase in greenhouse gases. So while warming is immune to politics, the topic remains a partisan issue in the United States. That’s

something the former vice president blames on corporate funding for political campaigns. “The truth about the climate crisis is still inconvenient for the big carbon polluters, and the politicians that they support with their big campaign contributions and lobbying activities are scared to cross them. That’s the main reason. They’ve spent a lot of money trying to put out false information about it,” Gore said. Still, he remains confident that the problem can be fixed. “People are seeing through this now. Two-thirds of the American people want to solve this, big time. We are gonna solve it. We just need to move faster on it,” Gore said. Gore feels that change will come from the “grass roots up.” That’s why he spends a great deal of time training climate activists around the globe. “We need to get more people involved. That’s one of the real purposes of this movie. To tell people what they need to know, to show them that there is hope and there are solutions now, and inspire them to get involved,” Gore said.

senior leaders charged Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and the CIA of plotting to topple the government of President Nicolas Maduro. With their country descending into crisis, Foreign Minister Samuel Moncada and Carlos Ron, the charge d’afaires of the Venezuelan Embassy, accused Rubio and CIA Director Mike Pompeo of secretly conspiring against Caracas so that Washington can install new leaders amenable to U.S. interests. “What this group is trying to do with Venezuela is basically divide the government, recognize other leaders and foment a conflict with the Venezuelans,” Ron told a small group of reporters in Washington on Tuesday. “This is absolutely unacceptable.” The South American country with the world’s largest oil reserves is spinning out of control, its economy in tatters and its people starving as oil revenues plummet. Tension reached a tipping point this week ahead of a July 30 vote to change the Venezuelan constitution and strip lawmakers of power. The government argues the change is needed to stabilize the country, but U.S. leaders see it as a move toward a “full dictatorship.” In a nearly two-hour discussion at the Venezuelan residency in Washington, the Venezuelan officials — including interim Ambassador to the Organization of American States Carmen Velasquez — criticized

U.S. threats of sweeping sanctions targeting Venezuelan oil if the vote isn’t called of. Ron said the American people are not hearing the full story and accused the United States of unfairly attacking a democratically elected government. He said relations with the United States have long been challenging, but that tension has escalated under President Donald Trump, citing sanctions against Venezuela Vice President Tareck El Aissami and threat of an embargo against Venezuelan oil. “At this moment, relations are not good,” Ron said. Rubio, who has the ear of the White House, warned of a “very strong response” from Trump if Venezuela goes through with the “fraudulent vote.” He plans to deliver a list of Venezuelan officials to the White House on Tuesday that will include the names of people he hopes the Trump administration will issue sanctions against prior to the vote. “I hope every day this week the administration will take action to make clear that we’re not going to stand by and watch democracy be totally demolished by the Maduro regime,” Rubio said. Moncada said the vote will take place. Speaking to the group of reporters, he said the clearest indication of the United States’ real intentions came just five days ago when Pompeo addressed the Aspen Institute security forum. During a Q&A, Pompeo signaled CIA’s desire for a new government in Venezuela and acknowledged having conversations about the issue in Colombia and Mexico.

Trump has options if Sessions forced out Move would be seen as a shot at Mueller BY ERIC TUCKER AND SADIE GURMAN Associated Press

WASHINGTON • Presi-

dent Donald Trump’s startlingly public criticism of Jef Sessions over the last week suggests an effort to pressure the attorney general into resigning with a possible eye toward replacing him and ending the Justice Department investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Trump has shown one attorney general the door already. His January dismissal of Sally Yates had limited repercussions because she was an Obama administration holdover days away from her own departure. But firing or forcing out Sessions could set off a frenzied — and confusing — chain reaction. A Sessions ouster would be seen as key to ultimately removing Robert Mueller, the special counsel and former FBI director investigating potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. But Trump, infuriated by Sessions’ own recusal from the probe, would need to find a new ally in the Justice Department willing to take that step — which may not be easy. Here’s a look at potential scenarios:

ORDINARY SUCCESSION If Trump follows Justice Department protocol and his own executive order outlining a succession plan, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would immediately become acting attorney general until a permanent successor is nominated and confirmed by the Senate. That would leave the

president, at least immediately, with another attorney general of whom he has been sharply critical. The point person for Mueller’s probe within the Justice Department, Rosenstein has not been spared from Trump’s ire. Trump lashed out at him in a New York Times interview last week, suggesting he couldn’t be a loyal Republican if he’s from Baltimore, even though he actually grew up outside of Philadelphia, and claimed that he had a “conflict” in the case since he authored a memo that preceded the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Rosenstein has steadfastly said he would not fire Mueller unless there were legitimate grounds to do so. Unlike Sessions, the first senator to endorse Trump, Rosenstein and Trump had no pre-existing relationship, and there’s no reason to think the president would rather have him lead the Justice Department. Under the department’s line of succession, if Sessions and Rosenstein were to both leave, the acting attorney general slot would then be filled by Rachel Brand, the No. 3 official and the associate attorney general.

A DIFFERENT PICK Trump could invoke his authority under the fed-

eral Vacancies Reform Act to select someone other than Rosenstein to lead the department on an interim basis provided that person is already Senateconfirmed, which could include a Cabinet member or a top Justice Department oicial. Such appointments have 210-day limits, and it’s not clear that statute can be used when the previous oiceholder is fired. If Trump opts for someone other than Rosenstein, that selection would have enormous importance because the pick — barring a conflict similar to the one Sessions had — would assume oversight of Mueller’s investigation. There’s nothing in the regulations that set up Mueller’s appointment that would seem to bar an acting attorney general from firing a special counsel for misconduct, conflict of interest or dereliction of duty.

RECESS APPOINTMENT If the Senate formally recesses for 10 days or more, Trump can appoint someone of his choosing to be attorney general until the end of the next Senate session in January 2019. And Trump’s pick wouldn’t need Senate confirmation to step into the role, theoretically allowing the president to select someone amenable to firing Mueller.

DIGEST Trump, Lebanese leader pledge to ight terrorism President Donald Trump and Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri pledged solidarity Tuesday in their joint ight against terrorism by the Islamic State group and others. The pledge came as Hariri’s paid his irst visit to the Trump White House. During brief remarks before meeting Trump and his aides, Hariri said he hoped the anti-terrorism partnership between the two countries would continue until terrorists are defeated. “We will do that,” Trump replied. The leaders also met in the Oval Oice. Both answered reporters’ questions afterward during a Rose Garden appearance. Hariri asked for U.S. inancial aid to cope with the lood of Syrian refugees entering his country because of the civil war there. Syrian refugees make up about 25 percent of Lebanon’s population of about 6 million people. Justice Dept. intensiies crackdown on sanctuary cities • The Justice Department escalated its promised crackdown on so-called sanctuary cities Tuesday, saying it will no longer give cities coveted grant money unless they give federal immigration authorities access to jails and provide advance notice when someone in the country illegally is about to be released. Under old rules, cities seeking grant money needed only to show they were not preventing local law enforcement from communicating with immigration authorities about the citizenship status of someone in their custody. House passes bill with more sanctions on Russia • Eager to punish Russia for meddling in the 2016 election, the House on Tuesday overwhelmingly backed a new package of

sanctions against Moscow that prohibits President Donald Trump from waiving the penalties without irst getting permission from Congress. Lawmakers passed the legislation, 419-3, clearing the far-reaching measure for action by the Senate. If senators move quickly, the bill could be ready for Trump’s signature before Congress exits Washington for its regular August recess. The Senate, like the House, is expected to pass the legislation by a veto-proof margin. The bill also slaps Iran and North Korea with sanctions. Trump hasn’t threatened to reject the bill despite White House staf objections. Amtrak train kills man who walked around crossing gate • Authorities in South Carolina say a 46-year-old man who was fatally hit by an Amtrak passenger train had walked around the crossing’s warning gate around 3 a.m. Tuesday near Columbia, S.C. No one on the train was hurt. The train was headed from New York City to Miami. Richland County Coroner Gary Watts identiied the man as Kevin Hayes. Police say they don’t know why Hayes ignored the lashing lights, bells and crossing gates. 1,000 say goodbye to victims of lash lood • As “Ave Maria” played, more than 1,000 people said

goodbye to 10 members of an extended family who died in a lash lood in Arizona. The 10 white caskets were arranged in two rows facing the altar for a funeral Mass celebrated in English and Spanish on Tuesday at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Scottsdale. The Rev. Eric Tellez remembered the three generations of a Mexican immigrant family as hardworking people, many of whom worked in the restaurant industry. The pastor likened feeding people to a ministry. The family died when a torrent of water rushed through the swimming hole where they were celebrating a birthday on July 15, taking a grandmother, aunts and uncles, children and grandchildren. Cosby accuser arrested on heroin charge • Oicials say a model who accused Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting her at a Playboy Mansion party in 2008 has been arrested on suspicion of bringing heroin to a San Diego jail. San Diego County Sherif’s Department spokesman Ryan Keim says Chloe Goins was parked at the jail late Sunday. Keim says a drug thought to be heroin was found in her car and the 27-year-old was arrested. She could face felony charges. From news services

MUMBAI, INDIA • In-

dia’s ambitious “Housing for All” plan is bumping up against some harsh realities. Prime Minister Narendra Modi set a target in 2015 of building 50 million homes in less than a decade, or about 7 million a year. The nation has since added only 180,877 under the scheme, underscoring the challenge in achieving that target. “It was a moonshot,” said Rajesh Krishnan, chief executive officer at Brick Eagle, a Mumbaibased private equity fund that provides project financing to affordable housing developers. Modi’s housing program is a necessity in a nation where about 65 million people, or the population of the U.K., live in makeshift structures in cities such as Mumbai, which is home to Asia’s secondlargest slum. The plan promised to stoke employment and unleash in-

vestments, estimated at as much as $1.3 trillion over seven years, as the government plans a re-election bid in 2019. Yet, as the numbers attest, there’s no shortage of roadblocks. Demand is concentrated among the nation’s poor; India doesn’t have sufficient developers able to massproduce apartments; and myriad clearances add to project costs already elevated by high land prices. Over 96 percent of the urban housing shortage is due to households earn-

ing less than $9,310 per year, according to Shirish Sankhe, a Mumbai-based senior partner at McKinsey & Co. That means home prices need to be kept at less than a million rupees ($15,527), which can be a challenge given construction costs. Further driving up costs are state, central, environmental and civil aviationrelated clearances that delay construction. India ranked 185 out of 190 countries in dealing with construction approvals, according to a World Bank report showing that Asia’s third-largest economy comes in at 130 for its overall ease of doing business. “Anywhere else in the world you can get approvals in 30 days time, here it takes a year, sometimes two years,” said Neel Raheja, group president of Mumbaibased K.

fered those constructing affordable homes socalled infrastructure status, making them eligible for various incentives. Interest-rate waivers were extended to households with annual incomes of up to 1.8 million rupees, while laws to tackle building delays and protect homebuyers came into efect on May 1. L ea d i n g d eve l o p ers including Mahindra Lifespace Developers Ltd., an arm of the Mahindra Group; Tata Housing Development Company Ltd. and Raheja Developers have responded, though they are yet to have a serious impact. Affordable housing projects in cities across India increased in the first half of the year, driven by the National Capital Region, Kolkata, Pune and Ahmedabad, where 80 percent of launches were in this segment, a Knight Frank report showed this month. Most efforts are focused on the middle-income group, where apartments cost 2 million to 3.5 million rupees, McKinsey’s Sankhe said. Tata Value Homes, the affordable housing arm of the $100 billion Tata Group, has delivered more than 8,000 apartments priced from 1.4 million rupees to 7 million rupees, a company spokesman said by email. Mahindra Lifespaces ventured into this market in 2014 and has delivered 500 homes so far in the 1.8 million rupees to 2.3 million rupees range. One way of encouraging developers to focus on cheaper units would be for the government to lower land prices by releasing some of the property parcels owned by agencies such as the Indian Railways, said Anuj Puri, chairman of ANAROCK Property Consultant.

WORLD DIGEST N. Korea’s missile program farther along than believed Intelligence oicials believe North Korea will have a reliable, intercontinental missile capable of carrying a nuclear weapon as early as next year, according to a report published Tuesday amid a warning from a top GOP lawmaker who says he has grown increasingly alarmed about Pyongyang’s weapons program. The Washington Post reported that a new conidential assessment by the Defense Intelligence Agency trims two years of the timeline for when North Korea could strike North American cities with atomic weapons. The assessment was triggered by recent North Korean missile tests that indicated the nation’s program was further along than expected. Trump, Lebanese prime minister tout solidarity • President Donald Trump said Tuesday that supporting Syrian refugees as close to their home as possible is the best way to help them. Trump commented during an appearance with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, whose country is burdened by an inlux of refugees leeing the civil war in Syria and who is counting on continued U.S. assistance to help manage that burden. During Hariri’s irst visit to the Trump White House, the leaders also pledged continued solidary against terrorism from Islamic State and other militant groups. “Our approach supporting the humanitarian needs of displaced Syrian citizens as close to their home country as possible is the best way to help most people,” said Trump, standing alongside Hariri in the Rose Garden after their talks. The U.S. has provided billions of dollars in humanitarian assistance to help supply displaced and other Syrians with clean water, food, shelter and health care since the civil war broke out in early 2011.

Former Guantanamo Bay detainee tried to go to Russia • A former Guantanamo Bay detainee resettled in Uruguay recently tried to travel to Russia in one of at least four attempts to leave the South American country, an oicial said Tuesday. Syrian native Abu Wa’el Dhiab tried to board a light to Russia but was turned away because he lacked an entry visa, said Christian Mirza, the government liaison with six ex-Guantanamo Bay inmates resettled in Uruguay. Mirza said Dhiab’s failed trip took place between an attempt to enter South Africa last December and his recent deportation from Morocco after arriving with a false passport. Dhiab also went missing for weeks last year before turning up in Venezuela. Dhiab returned to Uruguay’s capital over the weekend after being deported from Morocco. It is unclear how he got there. Uruguay took in Dhiab along with ive other former Guantanamo prisoners in 2014. But he has expressed unhappiness about being in the country and has gone on a hunger strike to demand he be allowed to leave and join his family in Turkey or in another country. Monsoons kill scores in India • At least 16 people have been killed this week in heavy monsoon rains that have lashed western India, including the desert state of Rajasthan, with more than 24,000 villagers evacuated to higher ground, oicials said Tuesday. Hundreds of rescuers using motor boats saved 789 people, including some pregnant women, from being swept away by swirling loodwater in six districts in Gujarat state, said Ranvijay Singh, a government oicial. The rescuers found six bodies in looded villages on Monday and Tuesday, raising the death toll in Gujarat to 70 since the start of the monsoon season, which runs from June through September.

Former Marine dies ighting Islamic State He had trained with Kurdish militia in secret ASSOCIATED PRESS ORLANDO, FLA. • A former Marine believed so strongly in the war against the Islamic State group that he secretly traveled to Syria, where he was killed this month while fighting

for a Kurdish militia group. David Taylor, 25, a former Florida resident, had kept his plans to join the Kurdish group a secret from his family and told only a high school friend, who he swore to secrecy. Taylor’s father said Tuesday that he didn’t even know of his son’s plans until after he had arrived in Syria last spring and was training with the group known as YPG.

“I got an email and he said, ‘Pops, don’t worry. I’m with the YPG,’” David Taylor Sr. told The Associated Press from his West Virginia home. “He said, ‘I’m doing the right thing. It’s for their freedom.’” A Kurdish militia group released a video saying Taylor was “martyred fighting ISIS’ barbarism” on July 16. The U.S. State Department said in a statement

that it was aware of reports of a U.S. citizen being killed while fighting in Syria but ofered no further comment. Taylor’s father said the family was told about the death last weekend by a U.S. consular official. Taylor’s high school friend emailed the father after he learned of the death. The friend said Taylor told him during a visit to St. Petersburg Beach, Fla., last February that he believed the Islamic State group needed to be stopped. “One night he got drunk and told me of the atrocities he had witnessed in the Middle East during his time in the Marine Corps,” the friend, Alex Cintron, wrote in an email to Taylor’s parents.

Lynn is the Cardinals’ best pitcher right now. He nailed his fourth straight starting assignment, shackling the Colorado Rockies on three hits and one run for six innings Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. Over his last 251/3 innings covering those four starts, Lynn has allowed just two runs. Scouts from Washington, Los Angeles and Cleveland were on hand to see Lynn, a potential free agent after the season, although the Nationals also likely were observing late-inning reliever Trevor Rosenthal.

“We’re definitely going to be a force to be reckoned with,” MU linebacker Eric Beisel says. BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

COLUMBIA, MO. • Missouri

When Louis finally answered, Harrison asked him to come down from his hotel room to meet him for breakfast. Harrison kept the news to himself until his father met him. That’s when he took out his smart phone and lifted it high enough for both of them to take a photo. “We’re going to the … major leagues,” Harrison shouted as he captured the moment in a selfie.

senior linebacker Eric Beisel instituted a team rule this ofseason that speaks to his rise from career backup to starter to leader for coach Barry Odom’s team. When players gather for a huddle at the end of a workout or practice, the youngest players are pressed into the middle of the scrum and the veterans stand on the outside. “The strategy is the freshmen need to hear the message first and the seniors need to be outside looking in,” Beisel said at the recent Southeastern Conference Media Days. “You look at so many leadership models and you’ve got the seniors on the inside looking in. That just doesn’t make sense to me for a football team because you always have those stragglers on the outside leaking out. The huddle isn’t tight enough.” With veterans such as Beisel on the outside pushing the group closer together — “as tight as possible,” he said — Mizzou’s rookies have a better chance to absorb the message. When preseason camp begins next week for the Tigers, Beisel figures to be the voice behind the message when it comes to Odom’s defense and a linebacker group that moves on without two longtime pieces. He used that voice time and time again during his session with reporters at SEC Media Days, at which he issued a warning to opponents visiting Columbia this fall.

As fate would have it, Louis Bader was in Memphis on Tuesday when his son Harrison got the call he’d been dreaming of since his father started throwing batting practice to him when he was 5 years old. Class AAA Memphis manager Stubby Clapp had just

told Harrison he was headed to the majors to start in center field for the Cardinals, and Harrison was eager to let his father know. Louis was in the shower, though, when he heard his phone ring a little after 10:30 a.m. Louis let the first call go to voice mail, but Harrison didn’t want to deliver such important news in a message. Harrison dialed again a second later. Louis missed that call too, so Harrison immediately tried again.

Stroke play wraps at U.S. Girls Junior tournament here Impressive ield narrows to 64 players BY STU DURANDO St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Playing in her first U.S. Women’s Open this month, Paphangkorn Tavatanakit never felt she was able to relax and enjoy the experience among the LPGA’s top players. Intent on making the cut and qualifying for the U.S. Women’s Amateur, she shot 75 and 78, leaving frustrated and feeling like she didn’t get the most from what she hopes will be the first of many trips. “I learned a lot from that

week,” she said. “I didn’t play my best. It was a grind out there, but I would have played better if I didn’t pressure myself way too much. I focused on making the cut too much.” Hoping to approach this week’s U.S. Girls Junior Championship with a diferent mindset, the native of Thailand has rebounded well at Boone Valley Golf Club. She shot a 3-under 68 on Tuesday to finish one stroke behind Lucy Li on the final day of STEVEN GIBBONS • USGA

DELIGHTFUL DEBUT Bader scores winning run for Cards in his irst big-league game The tip-of on what was to come Tuesday night in a 3-2 Cardinals win over Colorado at Busch Stadium arrived in the second inning on a routine ground ball hit to Rockies shortstop Trevor Story by Cardinals CARDINALS 3 rookie Harrison Bader, ROCKIES 2 who was tak> 7:15 p.m. Wednesday ing his first b i g - l ea g u e vs. Rockies, FSM > Martinez (6-8, 3.34) at-bat. vs. Hofman (6-2, 5.10) After fielding the ball, Story allowed himself the leisure of pausing an instant before unloading it to first base. Bader, running as if his pants were afire, was sprinting across the bag. He was called out but waited before going to the dugout, hoping manager Mike Matheny would challenge umpire Mark Carlson’s call. Matheny decided he couldn’t waste his challenge on an early-inning grounder to short, no matter what Bader might have felt about the call. “He doesn’t get a say. Ever,” Matheny said, smiling. “But I don’t blame him. You dream about that at-bat since the first time you pick up a bat. It was pretty impressive how the crowd (41,514) responded anyhow. A standing ovation for a groundout. “That’s his style. You love that

“We’re definitely going to be a force to be reckoned with,” MU linebacker Eric Beisel says. BY DAVE MATTER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

When Louis finally answered, Harrison asked him to come down from his hotel room to meet him for breakfast. Harrison kept the news to himself until his father met him. That’s when he took out his smart phone and lifted it high enough for both of them to be in a photo. “We’re going to the … major leagues,” Harrison shouted as he captured the moment in a selfie.

senior linebacker Eric Beisel instituted a team rule this ofseason that speaks to his rise from career backup to starter to leader for coach Barry Odom’s team. When players gather for a huddle at the end of a workout or practice, the youngest players are pressed into the middle of the scrum and the veterans stand on the outside. “The strategy is the freshmen need to hear the message first and the seniors need to be outside looking in,” Beisel said at the recent Southeastern Conference Media Days. “You look at so many leadership models and you’ve got the seniors on the inside looking in. That just doesn’t make sense to me for a football team because you always have those stragglers on the outside leaking out. The huddle isn’t tight enough.” With veterans such as Beisel on the outside pushing the group closer together — “as tight as possible,” he said — Mizzou’s rookies have a better chance to absorb the message. When preseason camp begins next week for the Tigers, Beisel figures to be the voice behind the message when it comes to Odom’s defense and a linebacker group that moves on without two longtime pieces. He used that voice time and time again during his session with reporters at SEC Media Days, at which he issued a warning to opponents visiting Columbia this fall.

As fate would have it, Louis Bader was in Memphis on Tuesday when his son Harrison got the call he’d been dreaming of since his father started throwing batting practice to him when he was 5 years old. Class AAA Memphis manager Stubby Clapp had just

informed Harrison he was headed to the majors to start in center field for the Cardinals, and Harrison was eager to tell his father. Louis was in the shower, though, when he heard his phone ring a little after 10:30 a.m. Louis let the first call go to voice mail, but Harrison didn’t want to deliver such important news in a message. Harrison dialed again a second later. Louis missed that call too, so Harrison immediately tried again.

Stroke play wraps at U.S. Girls Junior tournament here Impressive ield narrows to 64 players BY STU DURANDO St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Playing in her first U.S. Women’s Open this month, Paphangkorn Tavatanakit never felt she was able to relax and enjoy the experience among the LPGA’s top players. Intent on making the cut and qualifying for the U.S. Women’s Amateur, she shot 75 and 78, leaving frustrated and feeling like she didn’t get the most from what she hopes will be the first of many trips. “I learned a lot from that

week,” she said. “I didn’t play my best. It was a grind out there, but I would have played better if I didn’t pressure myself way too much. I focused on making the cut too much.” Hoping to approach this week’s U.S. Girls Junior Championship with a diferent mindset, the native of Thailand has rebounded well at Boone Valley Golf Club. She shot a 3-under 68 on Tuesday to finish one stroke behind Lucy Li on the final day of STEVEN GIBBONS • USGA

DIGEST U.S. set to face Jamaica for Gold Cup soccer title Bruce Arena will become the irst to coach three CONCACAF Gold Cup champions if the Americans beat surprising Jamaica on Wednesday night in the title match of this year’s event, in Santa Clara, Calif. The United States won under Arena in 2002 and ’05 and is seeking its sixth Gold Cup title — and irst since 2013. Nine Americans have scored so far this tournament, most notably Clint Dempsey’s record-tying 57th goal in a 2-0 semiinal win against Costa Rica on Saturday that matched Landon Donovan’s mark. Under Arena, the Americans have momentum again regardless how the match Wednesday turns out. They were reeling before he replaced Jurgen Klinsmann after the Americans’ irst 0-2 start in the inal round of World Cup qualifying in the North and Central American and Caribbean region. World Cup qualifying resumes for the Americans with matches against Costa Rica on Sept. 1 in Harrison, N.J., and four days later in Honduras. Qualifying concludes against Panama on Oct. 6 in Orlando, Fla., and at Trinidad and Tobago four days after that. (AP) Rose, Curry inalize NBA deals • Derrick Rose completed the deal he had been working on with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who now have a possible replacement for Kyrie Irving. Rose gets a one-year, $2.1 million contract. The former free agent gives Cleveland a proven player to handle point-guard duties if it chooses to trade Irving, who recently told the team he wants to be dealt despite making it to three straight NBA Finals. Rose, 28, is a three-time All-Star and the 2011 MVP who averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists last season with New York. • Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors inalized the ive-year deal they agreed to recently. The $201 million contract initially was the NBA’s richest ever, until James Harden topped it with a $228 million extension from Houston. Meanwhile, fellow Warrior Draymond Green has been sued in Alameda (Calif.) County by two people who allege assault, battery and emotional distresses stemming from an incident that happened last year in Michigan. • Portland traded wingman Allen Crabbe to Brooklyn for forward Andrew Nicholson, but is expected to waive Nicholson. By shedding Crabbe’s contract, the Blazers signiicantly lower their luxury tax penalty. Crabbe averaged 10.7 points and 2.9 rebounds last season. Nicholson averaged 2.6 points and 1.6 rebounds. (From news services) Ledecky swims to victory again • Katie Ledecky breezed to her third gold medal of the world swimming championships, winning the 1,500meter freestyle by more than half the length of the pool, then returned 49 minutes later to post the fastest time in the semiinals of the 200 free at the event in Budapest, Hungary. Also, Lilly King made it 2-0 over Yulia Eimova in what has become one of swimming’s most compelling rivalries. The American won gold at the Rio Olympics last summer after spurning Eimova and brazenly proclaiming the Russian star had no business being allowed to compete because of doping violations. Eimova nearly broke Ruta Meilutyte’s 4-year-old record in the semiinals, giving her the prime lane in the middle of the pool for the next race. But King led all the way, touching in 1 minute, 4.13 seconds to shave 0.22 of the Lithuanian’s mark from the 2013 worlds. Britain’s Adam Peat broke a pair of 50-meter breaststroke marks. His initial time of 26.10 shaved 0.32 seconds of the standard he set in 2015. He went even faster a few hours later in the non-Olympic event, touching in 25.95. (AP) NHL roundup • The Rangers signed center Mika Zibanejad to a $26.75 million, ive-year deal. They are counting on him to take on a bigger role following the trade of Derek Stepan.

of a Lovie Smith football team is a defense that steals the football with the precision of a professional pickpocket. When he was head coach of the Chicago Bears, he not only preached taking the ball away, he challenged the defense to score with it, too. Led by play-makers like Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman, some of Smith’s success with the Bears can be traced to the defense’s ability to find the end zone even when an inconsistent ofense could not. In 2012, the Bears’ defense scored five touchdowns in the first five games of the season. Smith’s defensive formula hinged on getting a disruptive pass rush from his front four and limiting blitzes by keeping the other seven players deployed as tacklers and in pass coverage. That was supposed to be the personality and strength of Smith’s first Illini defense last season. He hoped he could capitalize on having five seniors available on the defensive line. It didn’t work as efectively as Smith would have liked even though four of those graduated players are now on NFL rosters. Dawuane Smoot and Carroll Phillips are both with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Chunky Clements recently signed with the

Minnesota Vikings. Gimel President is with Houston. As Smith said this week at Big Ten Conference football media day, “Those five seniors are gone. It’s time for new players to step up.” It’s critical because if the defensive line can’t make plays, plans for improvement in Smith’s second season will collapse. Smith is notorious for guarding specific personnel thoughts but at the Big Ten media day event this week he mentioned three players who he envisions sliding into bigger roles. Starting corner Jaylen Dunlap, one of the most outspoken members of the defense, shared some thoughts, too. Smith said his eye will be on Sean Adesanya, Jamal Milan and Tymir Oliver. Dunlap said not to sleep on James Crawford and Kenyon Jackson. Adesanya, a defensive end, has been a forgotten man since arriving two years ago from Eastern Arizona Junior College. The New Jersey native missed the 2015 season with a torn labrum, then missed last season with a torn Achilles tendon. Now healthy, Smith is hopeful. “He’s a guy we think can really help us,” he said. Dunlap was more efusive in his praise. “Sean is a big guy, strong guy. He’s lifting out of the gym, one of our strongest football players. And he ran a 4.6 40.” Smith envisions an expanded role for Jamal Milan, the 300-pound redshirt sophomore from Chicago who missed all but the opener in 2015 due to injury but got five starts last season. “I’m talking about more of a leadership role for Jamal because

he’s kind of the guy now,” Smith said. “With those seniors gone, it’s time for the next wave.” Oliver, a sophomore from Pennsylvania, can be part of that next wave, Smith said. “Tymir has had about as good of an off-season as you could hope for,” Smith said. The player Dunlap is most excited about is James Crawford, who arrived in 2013 as a safety out of Deerfield, Fla., converted to a hybrid linebacker-defensive back and now has bulked up in anticipation of playing defensive end. The coaching staff dreams of unleashing his speed as an edge rusher. “He’ll be our starting defensive end,” Dunlap said without hesitation. “He ran a 4.4 in the 40 this year and he’s up to at least 240 pounds. Kenyon Jackson could join Milan as a defensive tackle. He certainly has the pedigree. His father, Keith Jackson, was a six-time NFL Pro Bowl selection with Philadelphia, Miami and Green Bay after having been an All-American tight end at Oklahoma. As for others who got at least a mention at media day, Smith said he doesn’t like to talk about freshmen until he’s had a better look. But he couldn’t resist mentioning early-enrollee Owen Carney, another in a growing group of Floridians Smith is starting to mine. Smith will once again limit contact during training camp, which opens Monday on campus. With a roster that still contains limited depth, he can’t afford early injuries. Nowhere is that more true than on the defensive line.

Mizzou linebacker Eric Beisel, from Rockwood Summit, is on the rise after becoming a starter late last season.

Restructured staf coaches linebackers MU • FROM B1

“If you want to compare our team right now to any team in the past two years, not even close,” Beisel said. “We’re definitely going to be a force to be reckoned with.” “Don’t come to our field and think you’re coming out with a win,” he added. “Any team that does that, they’ll pay for it.” Bravado alone won’t replace Michael Scherer and Donavin Newsom, who combined to make 420 tackles the last three years and rarely left the field — until a torn knee ligament ended Scherer’s senior season in the seventh game last fall. But Scherer’s injury thrust Beisel into the starting lineup for the first time in his career. While the defense improved only marginally the final five weeks of the season, Beisel’s play inspired hope. From his middle linebacker position, Beisel mostly split series with freshman Cale Garrett and averaged a team-best eight tackles during MU’s final five games, including 14- and 10-tackle games at South Carolina and Tennessee, respectively. As the Tigers try to repair last year’s problems on defense — poor tackling was the most common diagnosis — Beisel now becomes the team’s most experienced linebacker. He’ll open camp as the starter in the middle, flanked by Terez Hall (weakside) and converted safety Kaleb Prewett (strongside). “If you look over his career he’s played quite a few snaps really,” Odom said of Beisel, a former Rockwood Summit standout and one of just seven players left on the team from MU’s 2013 recruiting class. “He’s confident in his abilities. He’s got a really good skill set to play the position. The understanding of what we’re doing defensively, he’s on top of that, which is good. He’s got a chance to really have his best season for a number of factors.” Under Odom’s restructured defensive staf, defensive coordi-

brey Miller Jr. Both could see early playing time on special teams and work into the linebacker rotation as backups. No matter who lines up where, Odom hopes to see linebacker play that looks more like his unit did in 2015, when the Tigers ranked No. 6 in total defense with Odom as coordinator. With the starters recast and a clear leader in Beisel, chemistry and leadership will be crucial. Tackling, too. “The thing we did well in that year (2015) defensively is we’re on the same page,” Odom said. “We knew where we had help and where we didn’t so we could go take a shot and when we had to play a little more reserved. … I don’t want to use the word simplify but getting everyone on the same page, playing together, playing fast. And obviously we’ve got to become better tacklers.”

MORNING KICKOFF SET FOR SEASON OPENER nator DeMontie Cross is coaching the middle and weakside linebackers, the two positions that play primarily in the tackle box. New assistant Brian Odom, the head coach’s younger brother, is coaching the strongside linebackers, who generally have more coverage responsibilities. Prewett started eight games as a safety at Kansas State in 2015 but after playing on the Mizzou scout team last fall moved into the nickelback role during the spring. He played well enough to earn looks as the outside linebacker in standard 4-3 packages. In April’s spring scrimmage, Prewett showed of the speed, versatility and sure tackling to play both positions and figures to rack up the snaps this fall. After making 20 tackles in nine games last year, Hall is the top candidate to play alongside Beisel inside. Garrett quickly learned the defense last year as a freshman and made 47 stops as a parttime starter in the middle. Veterans Joey Burkett and Brandon Lee could figure into the mix, too, but the staff might be intrigued by freshmen Jamal Brooks and Au-

Prince William County police said they were conident the man charged in a case involving $40 worth of stolen food and drink from a convenience store in June wasn’t Whitehead. The Cowboys released him Monday after reports that he was arrested and subsequently cited for missing a court hearing. Whitehead’s agent, Dave Rich, contended his client wasn’t in Virginia at the time of the reported arrest. Police said they are seeking the person who used the identity of Whitehead, whose given name is Rodney Darnell Whitehead Jr. Police said the person arrested June 22 didn’t have an ID but provided a name, date of birth and Social Security number matching Whitehead’s given name. Oicers checked a photo in Virginia’s database of drivers licenses. Vick joins Chiefs as coaching intern • Eight years ago, Andy Reid gave quarterback Michael Vick his irst shot at reviving a dormant career. Perhaps it’s only itting that Reid is also the irst coach to give Vick his irst shot at what he hopes is the next phase of his career — coaching. Vick has joined the Chiefs for training camp as a coaching intern throughout their tenure in St. Joseph, Mo., for the next three weeks, the team said Tuesday. Vick, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2001 draft, revived his career with the Philadelphia Eagles after serving time in prison for dogighting, as he played for Reid from 2009 to 2012. During his time under Reid, Vick went 18-16 as a starter and threw for 8,769 yards, 52 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.

stroke play at the six-day event. Li’s round of 66 was the best in the first two days and gave her medalist honors, heading into Wednesday’s start of match play. Tavatanakit played a bogey-free round but couldn’t pull of one more birdie over the final eight holes to catch Li. Maybe more important, she felt she played steady to keep herself in contention and then smart while she was pursuing the leader. “I was emotionally steady the whole round,” she said. “I didn’t really pressure myself until the last couple of holes. I was trying to tie for the medalist. I tried to make a birdie but didn’t risk any shots that might have cost me some strokes.” Li started with success and ended the same way to make her run at the top of the leader board in the morning. Opening on No. 10, she birdied three of her first five holes and then posted four in a row on Nos. 5 through 8. No surprises there. The 14-year-old was the youngest qualifier in history for the U.S. Women’s Open, when she made the field at 11 years, 8 months in 2014. She had two rounds of 78 in that historic event

holes coming in, which was good for my confidence heading into (Tuesday).” Tavatanakit is one of a growing number of strong players to emerge from Thailand, which produced sisters Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn. Ariya is ranked No. 2 in the world. Amazingly, despite her struggles at the Open, Tavatanakit finished only two shots behind her. Neither made the cut with Ariya Jutanugarn shooting plus 7 and Tavatanakit plus 9. The two didn’t talk at the tournament. In fact, Tavatanakit doesn’t remember conversing with many people. “I took that week the wrong way,” she said. “I should have experienced more. I was trying to focus and didn’t experience enough of enjoying the week or talking to people.” This week she wanted to rediscover the enjoyment and precision that made her the top high school golfer in the Class of 2017 and the No. 32 ranked amateur in the world. She will attend UCLA in the fall. Tavatanakit has known low rounds for a long time. She once shot a 60 at the age of 14 and had no idea what she had accomplished. “I remember I hit 18 greens and nothing went outside of 20, 25 feet and I just made it all,” she said. “At the end I thought I was 7-under. I didn’t know my score. I was just really enjoying my round and I told the guy, ‘I think you made a mistake.’” Tavatanakit made few mistakes Tuesday before moving onto match play, which will include the top 64 players from the first two days. First-day leader Mika Liu shot 74 and slipped into a tie for fifth place with, among others, 12-year-old Alexa Pano. Caroline Hodge and Zoe Campos tied for third, completing the two rounds at 2-under. Stu Durando @studurando on Twitter sdurando@post-dispatch.com

Cubs 7, White Sox 2 • Willson Contreras drove in four runs and Carl Edwards Jr. provided some timely relief, helping the Cubs beat the White Sox in Chicago. Yankees 4, Reds 2 • Todd Frazier had an unforgettable irst at-bat in his home debut at Yankee Stadium, grounding into a rare runscoring triple play as New York beat Cincinnati. Astros 5, Phillies 0 • Derek Fisher drove in two runs just hours after arriving in Philadelphia and Charlie Morton pitched seven innings to lead Houston over Philadelphia. Rangers 10, Marlins 4 • Joey Gallo homered twice and Mike Napoli and Rougned Odor also went deep as Texas slugged past Miami in Texas. When Gallo led of the third inning with a towering blast into the second deck of seats, Marlins right ielder and MLB home run co-leader Giancarlo Stanton never even moved. That broke a 1-all tie and put the Rangers ahead to stay. Gallo then led of the fourth with a liner into the seats near the right ield corner for his 25th homer, and Odor’s 20th came leading of the ifth to make it 7-4. Christian Yelich drove in all four of Miami’s runs, including a three-run homer. From news reports

ROUNDUP

Travis Shaw, Eric Thames and Manny Pina homered, Zach Davies tossed 7 2/3 shutout innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Washington Nationals 8-0 on Tuesday night. Shaw’s three-run blast highlighted a four-run fourth inning. Thames and Pina went back-to-back of Edwin Jackson (1-1) in the ifth for the NL Central-leading Brewers. Milwaukee, which had lost six of seven to open its 10-game road trip, maintained a half-game lead over the Chicago Cubs. Davies (12-4) allowed three hits and struck out seven to win his ifth consecutive decision. He drove in the Brewers’ irst run when he bunted toward the mound with runners on irst and third in the second inning and Pina raced home ahead of Jackson’s throw. Bryce Harper struck out twice, but his eighth-inning double of Oliver Drake extended his hitting streak to a career-high 17 games.

Travis Shaw, Eric Thames and Manny Pina homered, Zach Davies tossed 7 2/3 shutout innings and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Washington Nationals 8-0 on Tuesday night. Shaw’s three-run blast highlighted a four-run fourth inning. Thames and Pina went back-to-back of Edwin Jackson (1-1) in the ifth for the NL Central-leading Brewers. Milwaukee, which had lost six of seven to open its 10-game road trip, maintained a half-game lead over the Chicago Cubs. Davies (12-4) allowed three hits and struck out seven to win his ifth consecutive decision. He drove in the Brewers’ irst run when he bunted toward the mound with runners on irst and third in the second inning and Pina raced home ahead of Jackson’s throw. Braves 8, D’backs 3 • Mike Foltynewicz went six strong innings to win again and Kurt Suzuki homered twice as Atlanta won in Arizona. Mets 6, Padres 5 • Yoenis Cespedes, who hit a homer in the irst inning, had an RBI triple in the seventh to drive New York over San Diego.

AMERICAN LEAGUE Blue Jays 4, Athletics 1 • Cesar Valdez pitched a career-high six innings to win for the irst time since his big league debut more than seven years ago and Ryan Goins had two RBIs as Toronto beat visiting Oakland. Rays 5, Orioles 4 • Tim Beckham’s three-run homer capped a ive-run inning and rookie Jake Faria pitched into the eighth inning to help host Tampa Bay snap a ivegame losing streak with a win over Baltimore. Royals 3, Tigers 1 • Whit Merriield homered on the irst pitch of the game and Kansas City led the rest of the way in Detroit. Indians 11, Angels 7 • Edwin Encarnacion hit a grand slam in the 11th inning as Cleveland, who wasted a seven-run lead, beat visiting Los Angeles.

INTERLEAGUE Cubs 7, White Sox 2 • Willson Contreras drove in four runs and Carl Edwards Jr. provided some timely relief, helping the Cubs beat the White Sox in Chicago. Yankees 4, Reds 2 • Todd Frazier had an unforgettable irst at-bat in his home debut at Yankee Stadium, grounding into a rare runscoring triple play as New York beat Cincinnati. Astros 5, Phillies 0 • Derek Fisher drove in two runs just hours after arriving in Philadelphia and Charlie Morton pitched seven innings to lead Houston over Philadelphia. Rangers 10, Marlins 4 • Joey Gallo homered twice and Mike Napoli and Rougned Odor also went deep as Texas slugged past Miami in Texas. When Gallo led of the third inning with a towering blast into the second deck of seats, Marlins right ielder and MLB home run co-leader Giancarlo Stanton never even moved. That broke a 1-all tie and put the Rangers ahead to stay. From news reports

Outielder has sore forearm, pitcher a mid-back ailment BY RICK HUMMEL st. Louis Post-dispatch

Dexter Fowler was the first Cardinal to go onto the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, a move that wasn’t entirely surprising because he had come out of Monday’s game with an inning remaining. But Fowler, who has a strained left forearm, wasn’t the most prominent club member to be put on the DL. Longtime staff ace Adam Wainwright, who leads the club with 11 victories, was placed on it because of mid-back tightness, which might have led to his departure in the eighth inning of his last start — Saturday in Chicago. Fowler was replaced by Harrison Bader, whose contract was purchased from Class AAA Memphis. The team said the 35-yearold Wainwright, who was slated to pitch on Thursday, will be replaced by someone who will be added to the roster Wednesday. Wainwright is 11-5 with a 4.89 earnedrun average in 20 starts. The announcement came just an hour before Tuesday’s game but Luke Weaver didn’t start, as scheduled, for Memphis on Tuesday and could take Wainwright’s turn. Fowler isn’t quite sure how or exactly when he sufered his forearm injury, near the wrist, although the center fielder has been bothered by the ailment for a week or so. But he is sure how it has afected his game. “I’m swinging with one hand,” he said. No is one speculating how long he’ll be out. “It’s serious enough that we had to put him on the DL,” manager Mike Matheny said. “You never want to have to do that.” Since the resumption of play after the AllStar break, Fowler has hit a light .200 (eight hits in 40 at-bats) with just one double and one run batted in, after belting seven home runs between May 31 and July 7. On Monday night Fowler’s arm, which already had been swollen, swelled more as the game went along, he said, finally forcing his exit in the eighth inning. “It probably was stupid of me to try to battle through it,” Fowler said Tuesday. “But that’s just in my DNA.” Already this season Fowler has been afected by a sore right heel, which he thought had caused a couple of other leg ailments. While he has 14 home runs, he has only four stolen bases.

He admitted to some frustration and general manager Michael Girsch said, “Frustrating is a description of a lot of the season for a lot of people.” The heel had been a nuisance for years but this was a new injury to Fowler, hitting .241, in the first year of an $82.5 million, five-year contract after playing with the World Series champion Chicago Cubs last year. “It’s a pretty unbelievable injury,” he said. “It just flared up.” The extent of Fowler’s injury was discovered through a Magnetic Resonance Imaging exam on a day when Dexter Fowler Field, a youth diamond that was an investment by Cardinals Care, was dedicated in Decatur, Ill. Even though he wasn’t there, “that was the highlight of my day,” Fowler said. “It’s very humbling. Any time you can put a smile on kids’ faces, it’s definitely a plus. “It’s definitely going to be a hitters’ park, you know that,” joked Fowler.

BADER’S BIG DEBUT Bader said he was asleep about 10:30 a.m. in Memphis when Redbirds manager Stubby Clapp called him to tell him he was in the lineup for Tuesday’s game. But then he told Bader that lineup had to be changed because he was in the Cardinals’lineup. “It was a very, very good call,” said Bader, who then hopped into a car with his dad for the trip to St. Louis. Bader, hitting .287 with 19 homers at Memphis, said, he “absolutely” had earned the promotion when he was asked about it. He was one for four Tuesday in the Cardinals’ 3-2 win over Colorado, doubling in the ninth and scoring the winning run on a short sacrifice fly by Jedd Gyorko. He spent considerable time hugging teammates he played with at Memphis and his new veteran teammates and then he signed some contractural paperwork put in front of him by Girsch. When that task had been completed, Bader took a deep breath, exhaled and said to Girsch,“Thank you very much.”

IN BRIEF Outfielder Stephen Piscotty, on the DL with a strained right groin, is slated to begin a rehabilitation stint in Peoria later this week. ... The Cardinals and Rockies participated in an experiment that would shrink the time between innings from the usual two minutes to around one minute, 45 seconds, with shorter commercial breaks on the airwaves. The commissioner’s oice has made it a priority to increase the pace of play.

Matt Carpenter signals that Harrison Bader is safe at the plate with the winning run as Rockies catcher Ryan Hanigan is unable make the catch.

Lynn sharp early before rookie provides spark at end for Birds CARDINALS • FROM B1

Cardinals or someone else if he reaches free agency, received no decision for his work. Rosenthal gained a 3-2 win with two scoreless innings of relief and a ninth-inning Cardinals run fueled by rookie Harrison Bader’s leadof double for his first major league hit and then his flying feet. After Bader doubled to left of lefthander Jake McGee, Greg Garcia sacrificed perfectly before pinch-hitter Jedd Gyorko, facing a five-man Rockies infield, flied to short right. Carlos Gonzalez seemed to have a good shot at Bader but third-base coach Mike Shildt boldly sent Bader home and he slid in safely with the winning run as catcher Ryan Hanigan couldn’t handle a one-bounce throw that was slightly off the plate. And Bader received his first water shower amid the celebration. After lefthander Kevin Siegrist bailed the Cardinals out of a seventh-inning spot, Matt Bowman was tagged for a leadoff homer by Trevor Story on a 1-2 pitch to open the eighth and the Rockies

had tied the game. It could have been worse after Bowman hit Hanigan with a pitch and Rosenthal relieved. But, after a sacrifice bunt moved Hanigan up a base, second baseman Kolten Wong made a spectacular diving grab off Charlie Blackmon and Rosenthal struck out DJ LeMahieu. Rosenthal then worked out of a two-on, two-out spot in the ninth by freezing Story for strike three to maintain the tie. The two Cardinals runs that stood up for most of the night came on Paul DeJong’s two-run homer in the first. And Lynn held on until the seventh. Because of his free-agent prospects after missing a season because of elbow surgery, manager Mike Matheny said before the game that Lynn “had a little bit of a chip, an edge. That’s the way you should play this game.” Lynn’s philosophy has been steadfast — that he pitches for the Cardinals until he doesn’t. “He’s been around long enough to understand that all he can to is continue to pitch and that’s exactly what he’s done,” Matheny said. Lynn allowed only a double to Gerardo Parra through five in-

nings. Hanigan singled to open the Colorado sixth before he was swallowed up in a double play. Blackmon then was snuffed by a diving catch from left fielder Pham. The Rockies touched Lynn for a run in the seventh, but Siegrist escaped with a double play.

Lynn nicked LeMahieu with a pitch and Nolan Arenado doubled him to third. With Parra, who was 14 for 28 with three homers against Lynn, at bat, Matheny switched to lefthander Siegrist. Siegrist retired Parra on a fly to center and Bader, handling his first chance, correctly threw to the cutof man — shortstop DeJong — to keep Arenado at second as LeMahieu scored. Bader had been playing center at Memphis this year and Matheny said before the game, “You hear from our development staf that he’s as good as we’ve got. And we’ve got some good ones.” With one out, Siegrist walked Ian Desmond but got lefhtanded-hitting Gonzales to ground into a double play started by DeJong, who made a nifty play to his right and pivoted by second baseman Kolten Wong. DeJong, asked on Monday night what his high total in home runs was for his brief pro career, responded, “I hit 22 last year (in Springfield) and then one in the playoffs. This year, I’ve got 12 here and I had 13 at Memphis, so that’s 25. And counting,” he said, smiling. That 26th home run — 13 in

the majors and 13 in the minors — came in the first inning. DeJong, hitting third in the lineup for the second game in succession, ripped a first-pitch, 97 mph fastball from Jon Gray into the left-center-field seats. That scored Matt Carpenter, who had singled. For the second night in a row, the Cardinals had taken a two-run jump in the first against the Rockies. DeJong seized the shortstop job from Aledmys Diaz, who since has been optioned to Memphis and was hit in the hand by a pitch on Tuesday. DeJong has 12 homers since June 15 and only Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton, with 15, had more before Tuesday night. The Cardinals missed a chance to add to their lead in the fourth Yadier Molina singled for the second time and Kolten Wong legged out an infield hit. But Gray struck out Bader, Garcia and Lynn. Another misfire came in the fifth when, after Pham and DeJong singled to give the Cardinals runners at first and third, Randal Grichuk rapped sharply into a double play.

Outielder has sore forearm, pitcher a mid-back ailment BY RICK HUMMEL st. Louis Post-dispatch

Dexter Fowler was the first Cardinal to go onto the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, a move that wasn’t entirely surprising because he had come out of Monday’s game with an inning remaining. But Fowler, who has a strained left forearm, wasn’t the most prominent club member to be put on the DL. Longtime staff ace Adam Wainwright, who leads the club with 11 victories, was placed on it because of mid-back tightness, which might have led to his departure in the eighth inning of his last start — Saturday in Chicago. Fowler was replaced by Harrison Bader, whose contract was purchased from Class AAA Memphis. The team said the 35-yearold Wainwright, who was slated to pitch on Thursday, will be replaced by someone who will be added to the roster Wednesday. Wainwright is 11-5 with a 4.89 earnedrun average in 20 starts. The announcement came just an hour before Tuesday’s game but Luke Weaver didn’t start, as scheduled, for Memphis on Tuesday and could take Wainwright’s turn. Fowler isn’t quite sure how or exactly when he sufered his forearm injury, near the wrist, although the center fielder has been bothered by the ailment for a week or so. But he is sure how it has afected his game. “I’m swinging with one hand,” he said. No is one speculating how long he’ll be out. “It’s serious enough that we had to put him on the DL,” manager Mike Matheny said. “You never want to have to do that.” Since the resumption of play after the AllStar break, Fowler has hit a light .200 (eight hits in 40 at-bats) with just one double and one run batted in, after belting seven home runs between May 31 and July 7. On Monday night Fowler’s arm, which already had been swollen, swelled more as the game went along, he said, finally forcing his exit in the eighth inning. “It probably was stupid of me to try to battle through it,” Fowler said Tuesday. “But that’s just in my DNA.” Already this season Fowler has been afected by a sore right heel, which he thought had caused a couple of other leg ailments. While he has 14 home runs, he has only four stolen bases.

He admitted to some frustration and general manager Michael Girsch said, “Frustrating is a description of a lot of the season for a lot of people.” The heel had been a nuisance for years but this was a new injury to Fowler, hitting .241, in the first year of an $82.5 million, five-year contract after playing with the World Series champion Chicago Cubs last year. “It’s a pretty unbelievable injury,” he said. “It just flared up.” The extent of Fowler’s injury was discovered through a Magnetic Resonance Imaging exam on a day when Dexter Fowler Field, a youth diamond that was an investment by Cardinals Care, was dedicated in Decatur, Ill. Even though he wasn’t there, “that was the highlight of my day,” Fowler said. “It’s very humbling. Any time you can put a smile on kids’ faces, it’s definitely a plus. “It’s definitely going to be a hitters’ park, you know that,” joked Fowler.

BADER’S BIG DEBUT Bader said he was asleep about 10:30 a.m. in Memphis when Redbirds manager Stubby Clapp called him to tell him he was in the lineup for Tuesday’s game. But then he told Bader that lineup had to be changed because he was in the Cardinals’lineup. “It was a very, very good call,” said Bader, who then hopped into a car with his dad for the trip to St. Louis. Bader, hitting .287 with 19 homers at Memphis, said, he “absolutely” had earned the promotion when he was asked about it. He was one for four Tuesday in the Cardinals’ 3-2 win over Colorado, doubling in the ninth and scoring the winning run on a short sacrifice fly by Jedd Gyorko. He spent considerable time hugging teammates he played with at Memphis and his new veteran teammates and then he signed some contractural paperwork put in front of him by Girsch. When that task had been completed, Bader took a deep breath, exhaled and said to Girsch,“Thank you very much.”

IN BRIEF Outfielder Stephen Piscotty, on the DL with a strained right groin, is slated to begin a rehabilitation stint in Peoria on Thursday. ... The Cardinals and Rockies participated in an experiment that would shrink the time between innings from the usual two minutes to around one minute, 45 seconds, with shorter commercial breaks on the airwaves. The commissioner’s office has made it a priority to increase the pace of play.

kind of play where it’s (going) hard all the time. That’s all we’ve seen so far and I wouldn’t expect to see anything diferent.” Bader figured he probably didn’t have a leg up on this one. “They obviously have cameras up here” in the majors, he said. “They don’t have cameras in Triple-A, so I’ll take their word for it that there was no call.” Bader’s speed would come into play again in the ninth inning of a 2-2 game. First, he led of with a double to left of tough lefthander Jake McGee. Greg Garcia sacrificed perfectly and then pinchhitter Jedd Gyorko, facing a novel five-man infield with left field open, fouled of a couple of tough pitches before flying to shallow right. Carlos Gonzalez, after making the catch, didn’t get of a strong throw. He one-bounced the ball toward home and catcher Ryan Hanigan, who had to move in front of the plate a bit, couldn’t handle the hop and Bader slid home safely with the winning run. “(Third-base coach) Mike Shildt did a great job of pushing it there,” Matheny said. “Jedd got enough of it and Bader did the rest. I’m sure it’s a first game he’ll

never forget.” Bader said of the last play, “Game’s on the line. Kind of a door-die moment.” He jumped into on-deck hitter Matt Carpenter’s arms after scoring. “That was pretty cool,” Bader said. “I don’t know if I’d dreamed about that moment. That would be a little weird but, definitely, it was the perfect opportunity.” With leading winner Adam Wainwright landing on the disabled list Tuesday because of back tightness — it might cost him only one start — the chances of the Cardinals dealing Lance Lynn in the next week would seem to have lessened if they value themselves as playoff contenders. And, off what we’ve seen the last couple of nights, they gradually are looking more and more the part even if they still are under .500. Lynn’s philosophy has been steadfast — that he pitches for the Cardinals until he doesn’t. After the game, Lynn said, bluntly, “We’re four games back. I’m not going anywhere.” Lynn is the Cardinals’ best pitcher right now. He nailed his fourth straight starting assignment, shackling the Rockies on three hits and one run for six innings. Over the 25 1/3 innings covering those four starts, Lynn al-

lowed just two runs. Scouts from Washington, Los Angeles and Cleveland were on hand to see Lynn, a potential free agent after the season, although the Nationals also likely were observing late-inning reliever Trevor Rosenthal. Lynn received no decision for his work although Rosenthal gained the win with his longest outing of the season, two innings and 34 pitches. Lefthander Kevin Siegrist, who has shown flashes of old as he has regained his health, bailed the Cardinals out of a seventhinning spot by getting a double play started by shortstop Paul DeJong on a nifty grab to his right of Gonzalez’s grounder. Siegrist had replaced Lynn with runners at second and third and nobody out and Gerardo Parra, 14 for 28 with three homers against Lynn, due up. “Those numbers were hard to deny,” Matheny said. Parra hit a sacrifice fly. Matt Bowman was tagged for a leadof homer by Trevor Story, on a 1-2 pitch that was out of the strike zone, to open the eighth and the Rockies had tied the game. It could have been worse after Bowman hit Hanigan with a pitch and Rosenthal relieved. But, after a sacrifice bunt

moved Hanigan up a base, second baseman Kolten Wong made a spectacular diving grab of Charlie Blackmon (“awesome,” said Rosenthal) and Rosenthal struck out DJ LeMahieu. Rosenthal then worked out of a two-on, two-out spot in the ninth inning by freezing Story for strike three. “‘Rosey’ was fantastic,” Matheny said. The two Cardinals runs that stood up for most of the night came on DeJong’s two-run homer in the first. DeJong, asked on Monday night what his high total in home runs was for his brief pro career, responded, “I hit 22 last year (in Springfield) and then one in the playofs. This year, I’ve got 12 here and I had 13 at Memphis, so that’s 25. And counting,” he said, smiling. That 26th home run — 13 in the majors and 13 in the minors — resulted from his jumping a first-pitch, 97 mph fastball from Jon Gray to score Carpenter, who had singled. DeJong, who has spent most of his time in the bottom half of the lineup, was hitting third for the second night in a row. “Wherever we put him in the lineup, it doesn’t seem like he’s out of place,” Matheny said. DeJong seized the shortstop job early in the season from Aledmys

Diaz, who since has been optioned to Memphis and was hit in the hand by a pitch on Tuesday. DeJong has 12 homers since June 15. Only Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton, with 15, has more in that span. The infusion of energy, let alone talent, from Memphis this season, has been striking for the Cards. “Those guys must be doing something right,” Matheny said. “They’re about 35 games over .500 down there.” The manager pointed to the manner in which the veteran players treat the young players in spring training. “They’re not intimidated,” Matheny said. “Our guys are not pulling power trips on them to make them run around like rookies. They make them feel like they’re part of the club. And when they get here, they’re more likely to jump in and contribute.” The game still took 3 hours 11 minutes to play despite an experiment to have only 1 minute 45 seconds between innings instead of two minutes. Matheny said the teams had been told early in the day that this would be the rule for the night and he said, “Lance was excited about it. He asked why it wasn’t always like this.” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

The biometrics scanning system is making its debut this week at Comerica Park. Visitors may enroll using a stateissued driver’s license. Fans will still go through security and display their tickets. Ballpark officials say, however, those willing to have their fingers scanned for fingerprints will have access to shorter lines. The entry system is billed as an added layer of security at the stadium. The ballpark can use the scanned information to track who is entering the park and at what times. In the future, game tickets could be linked to prints. Strasburg expected to make next scheduled start • The Nationals are hopeful that Stephen Strasburg will make his next scheduled start despite exiting Sunday’s outing after two innings with pain in his forearm. The right-hander met with team doctors but did not undergo an MRI, Washington manager Dusty Baker said Tues-

day. Team spokeswoman Amanda Comak later told reporters that Strasburg was diagnosed with a nerve impingement that is no longer a problem, without providing further details. “The doctor said he’s doing fine. Hoping he’ll progress enough to make the next start,” Baker said. Following Sunday’s start at Arizona, Strasburg described the problem as slight “achiness” in his forearm and said the early exit was a precaution. Strasburg (10-3 with a 3.25 ERA in 20 starts) is scheduled to start Friday against the Colorado Rockies. The 28-year-old Strasburg had Tommy John surgery in 2010. His more recent injuries include a forearm strain last season. “He said he’s feeling good,” Baker said following a conversation earlier Tuesday. “He’s not alarmed, didn’t look alarmed.” Shortstop Trea Turner, sidelined since June 30 with a right wrist fracture, was expected to have an X-ray, Baker said. Turner fielded grounders before Tuesday’s series opener against the Milwaukee Brewers but did not throw. Right-hander Enny Romero also left Sunday’s game with an injury, but Baker said the reliever’s back spasms subsided.

Baders have a storybook day ORTIZ • FROM B1

There wasn’t much time for breakfast, though. Harrison had been told to be ready in 15 minutes so that a car service could drive him to St. Louis. Naturally, Harrison asked his dad to join him on the ride. “Obviously it means the world to me,” Bader said. “That’s my father. He was there every step of the way since Little League. We’ve talked about this moment since I was 6 years old. It’s here, so let’s go out and play baseball. It’s fun.” Despite a job as Verizon’s lead legal counsel in New York, Louis Bader usually rushed home to Bronxville, N.Y., to pitch batting practice or hit grounders to his son in the evening. There weren’t many fields in their exclusive village, so they often would have batting practice against a fence. As Harrison told me this spring and reiterated on Tuesday, Louis always was there for him. Harrison credits his father with instilling his fearless demeanor at the plate by often hitting him with pitches. Louis never threw at Harrison’s head, but his son bristled nonetheless often after his dad plunked him. He didn’t cower from the plate, though. That fearlessness was evident when Harrison confidently strolled into the Busch Stadium home clubhouse Tuesday, for the first time, at 3:36 p.m. “You just play baseball, day by day,” he said before the Cardinals’ second game of a three-game series against the Rockies. “Nah, no time to be nervous. No time to be nervous. Just go out there and play ball, man. In front of a home crowd, too. That’s awesome. I can’t wait.” With his dad sitting in section 152, Harrison received a hearty ovation before he led of the second inning with a groundout to short, almost beating the throw in his first big league at-bat. He got his first hit, in the ninth, a leadof double in a 2-2 game and completed the storybook day by scoring the winning run on a short sacrifice fly to right field by Jedd Gyorko. “I’m proud, but it’s not about me,” Louis said before that. “It’s all about him. He’s the one who worked really hard. He deserves it. I was just along for the ride. It’s all about him. I am very proud. “He’s earned this. He deserves this. Hopefully he’ll do pretty well.” Bader’s mother, Janice, and younger sister Sasha, 18, were back in New York when Harrison learned that he had been called up to the majors. They weren’t expected to arrive at Busch Stadium until the

latter innings of the game. Louis doesn’t believe in fate, but it seems quite fitting that he was in Memphis when his son was finally called up. He arrived there on Sunday with plans of staying there through this weekend. When your kid’s at Class AAA, though, nobody minds an emergency trip to St. Louis. That opportunity finally materialized after the Cardinals placed Dexter Fowler on the 10-day disabled list and purchased Harrison’s contract. Harrison relished the opportunity to see his father’s reaction in person when he shared the news. “I surprised him this morning,” Harrison said.“That was pretty great.” Once Louis got his bags together, they jumped in the car together. They reminisced a bit on the drive as they shared the back seat of the car. The drive was fairly quiet otherwise. They arrived at Busch Stadium at about 3:30 p.m. The driver barely was unloading Harrison’s luggage and equipment outside the players’ parking lot when a little girl recognized the Cardinals’ rookie center fielder. “Harrison!” the girl screamed, prompting Bader to wave before he turned his back to put his second travel bag on his shoulder.“Can I get your autograph?” Eleven seconds later, the young Cardinals fan screamed again: “Can I get your autograph?” By this time, Harrison and his dad already had been in the car for more than four hours on the trip of their lifetime. Harrison was set to make his big-league debut in less than 3½ hours, and his mind was racing. He was a mere 30 feet from entering a major-league stadium as big leaguer for the first time. All he had to do was turn to the right and start walking. He turned left, however, toward that nasally young voice crying out for him. Harrison began walking toward the gate where a handful of fans loitered while waiting for autographs, prompting Louis to rush toward his son for a quick goodbye. “Good luck,” Louis said before hugging his son and kissing him gently on the cheek. Harrison kissed his dad’s cheek and then walked over to sign autographs for a few minutes before he was escorted into Busch Stadium by clubhouse assistant Mark Walsh. He finally was in the majors, and his dad helped him get there. Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

A new program will allow baseball fans at Tigers games in Detroit to get into the ballpark by using fingerprints to verify their identity. The biometrics scanning system is making its debut this week at Comerica Park. Visitors may enroll using a stateissued driver’s license. Fans will still go through security and display their tickets. Ballpark officials say, however, those willing to have their fingers scanned for fingerprints will have access to shorter lines. The entry system is billed as an added layer of security at the stadium. The ballpark can use the scanned information to track who is entering the park and at what times. In the future, game tickets could be linked to prints. Strasburg expected to make next scheduled start • The Nationals are hopeful that Stephen Strasburg will make his next scheduled start despite exiting Sunday’s outing after two innings with pain in his forearm. The right-hander met with team doctors but did not undergo an MRI, Washington manager Dusty Baker said Tues-

day. Team spokeswoman Amanda Comak later told reporters that Strasburg was diagnosed with a nerve impingement that is no longer a problem, without providing further details. “The doctor said he’s doing fine. Hoping he’ll progress enough to make the next start,” Baker said. Following Sunday’s start at Arizona, Strasburg described the problem as slight “achiness” in his forearm and said the early exit was a precaution. Strasburg (10-3 with a 3.25 ERA in 20 starts) is scheduled to start Friday against the Colorado Rockies. The 28-year-old Strasburg had Tommy John surgery in 2010. His more recent injuries include a forearm strain last season. “He said he’s feeling good,” Baker said following a conversation earlier Tuesday. “He’s not alarmed, didn’t look alarmed.” Shortstop Trea Turner, sidelined since June 30 with a right wrist fracture, was expected to have an X-ray, Baker said. Turner fielded grounders before Tuesday’s series opener against the Milwaukee Brewers but did not throw. Right-hander Enny Romero also left Sunday’s game with an injury, but Baker said the reliever’s back spasms subsided.

Baders have a storybook day ORTIZ • FROM B1

There wasn’t much time for breakfast, though. Harrison had been told to be ready in 15 minutes so that a car service could drive him to St. Louis. Naturally, Harrison asked his dad to join him on the ride. “Obviously it means the world to me,” Bader said. “That’s my father. He was there every step of the way since Little League. We’ve talked about this moment since I was 6 years old. It’s here, so let’s go out and play baseball. It’s fun.” It was more than fun. It was exhilarating, storybook even, with his parents — Louis and Janice — and younger sister Sasha among the raucous crowd of 41,514 at Busch Stadium. Bader capped his debut by sliding home with the winning run in the ninth inning on Jedd Gyorko’s sacrifice fly to shallow right field. “I just jumped in (Matt Carpenter’s) arms,” Bader said after his run gave the Cardinals a 3-2 victory over Colorado. “He’s right there, so that was pretty cool. I don’t know if I’d say if I dreamed about that moment. That would be a little weird, but I definitely just saw the perfect opportunity. It was awesome. That was a dream come true, for sure.” Bader, who led off the ninth with a double to left, was one for four in his debut. He scored the winning run almost 12 hours after he learned that he was headed to the majors. This thrilling dash began years ago, though, in Bronxville, N.Y., under Louis Bader’s guidance. Despite a job as Verizon’s lead legal counsel in New York, Louis Bader usually rushed home to pitch batting practice or hit grounders to his son in the evening. Harrison credits his father with instilling his fearless demeanor at the plate by often hitting him with pitches. That fearlessness was evident when Harrison confidently strolled into the Busch Stadium home clubhouse Tuesday, for the first time, at 3:36 p.m. “No time to be nervous,” he said before the second game of a three-game series. “Just go out there and play ball, man. In front of a home crowd, too. That’s awesome.” With his dad sitting in section 152, Harrison received a hearty ovation before he led of the second inning with a groundout to short, almost beating the throw in his first big league at-bat. “I’m proud, but it’s not about me,” Louis said. “It’s all about him. He’s the one who worked really hard. He deserves it. I was just along for the ride. It’s all about him. I am very proud. “He’s earned this. He deserves this.”

Bader’s mother and sister were back in New York when Harrison learned that he had been called up to the majors. They caught a flight to St. Louis late in the afternoon and arrived in the latter innings just in time to see Harrison’s heroics. Although Louis doesn’t believe in fate, it seems fitting that he was in Memphis when his son was finally called up. The timing put him near his son when the Cardinals placed Dexter Fowler on the 10-day disabled list and purchased Harrison’s contract. Harrison relished the opportunity to see his father’s reaction in person when he shared the news. “I surprised him this morning,” Harrison said. “That was pretty great.” They reminisced a bit on the drive from Memphis as they shared the back seat of the car. The drive was fairly quiet otherwise. They arrived at Busch Stadium at about 3:30 p.m. The driver barely was unloading Harrison’s luggage and equipment outside the players’ parking lot when a little girl recognized him. “Harrison!” the girl screamed, prompting Bader to wave before he turned his back to put his second travel bag on his shoulder. “Can I get your autograph?” Eleven seconds later, the young Cardinals fan screamed again: “Can I get your autograph?” By this time, Harrison and his dad already had been in the car for more than four hours on the trip of their lifetime. Harrison was set to make his big-league debut in less than 3½ hours, and his mind was racing. He was a mere 30 feet from entering a major-league stadium as a big leaguer for the first time. All he had to do was turn to the right and start walking. He turned left, however, toward that young voice crying out for him. Harrison began walking toward the gate where a handful of fans loitered while waiting for autographs, prompting Louis to rush toward his son for a quick goodbye. “Good luck,” Louis said before hugging his son and kissing him gently on the cheek. Harrison kissed his dad’s cheek and then walked over to sign autographs for a few minutes before he was escorted into Busch Stadium by clubhouse assistant Mark Walsh. He finally was in the majors, and his dad helped him get there. Jose de Jesus Ortiz @OrtizKicks on Twitter jortiz@post-dispatch.com

By Dan Wiese - Automotive Writer

Its formal name is Mazda CX-9, but we called it Yakima. Devotees of Hollywood trivia will recognize the name of Yakima Canutt, the legendary stuntman who took the onscreen falls for John Wayne in “Stagecoach,” Clark Gable in “Gone With The Wind,” Errol Flynn in “The Charge of the Light Brigade” and a bunch of other matinee idols in more than 250 movies over a 60-year career. He made all the stars look good. The 2017 CX-9 does the same thing for family-haulers. An athletic stunt double for a minivan, this three-row, sevenpassenger crossover — particularly considering its size — provides lithe handling and impressive road manners, all the while looking handsome as it performs the daily duties of the family bus. During our week with CX-9, we had occasion to haul two grandkids, ages 6 and 7, plus one of their pals on an excursion to The World Bird Sanctuary near St. Louis County’s Lone Elk Park. The Mazda rose to the occasion.

This second-generation Mazda CX-9 employs a turbo four-cylinder to deliver an EPA mpg rating of 22 city/28 hwy/24 combined in front-drivers, 20/26/23 with all-wheel drive. DRIVE FORMAT: Front- or all-wheel drive

DRIVING WITH DAN

TORQUE: 310 lb.-ft.

On the way to pick up the 10-year-old buddy, the little kids rode in the third row, which they called the “party room.” Then, upon picking up their pal, all three kids, two in booster seats, loaded into the middle row, allowing us to fold the third row to create plenty of space for all the picnic goodies. Yep, when it comes to familyactivity stunt work, CX-9 answers the casting call. Available in Sport, Touring, Grand Touring and Signature trims, 9 wears a shark-nose grille whose slight overbite is now a signature Mazda look. It also shows bird-ofprey headlight eyes, a sleek flank, considering the room inside, and a rump whose convex tailgate gives this guy character. Inside, the fashion show continues — at least, it did in our Grand Touring — with two-tone leather, satin- and bright-metal trim and classy piano-black accents. Room is fine up front. In the middle row, head and leg room also are excellent while access to that space is easy through big rear doors continued inside

2017 MAZDA CX-5

UPGRADED CROSSOVER REMAINS SPORTY, ADDS SURPRISING LUXURY

Cargazing by Derek Price

Driving on the country roads that zigzag around plots of farmland in rural East Texas, one thing is clear about the new Mazda CX-5. It still carries some sports-car DNA. That’s long been the chief selling point for the CX-5, a family-friendly vehicle that has reasonable space for baby seats in back, yet still feels light, nimble and enjoyable when you flick the steering wheel and zoom by cow pastures. It’s perfect for drivers who need practicality but also want a hint of the MX-5 Miata’s continued inside

FIVE STEPS TO KEEP YOUR CAR PREPARED FOR SUMMER HEAT Sponsored content and photo provided by Family Features

Taking proper care of your vehicle is important all year, but summer heat brings a unique set of challenges to your car’s air conditioning system, tires, brakes, battery and more. To ensure your vehicle is prepared to safely handle the summer elements and to help avoid breakdowns, preventative maintenance is necessary. The car care experts at Goodyear Auto Service offer these essential tips that can help keep your car performing safely, comfortably and cool — all summer long: Keep tires properly inflated. As temperatures rise, so does your tire pressure. Tires with high air pressure perform inefficiently as compared to properly inflated tires. Check your tires regularly, leveraging the inflation level molded into the driver door sidewall or in your vehicle’s manual. Check air conditioning. The experts at weather.com are predicting warmer than average summer temperatures for a vast majority of the country. When temperatures climb, avoid losing your cool with preventative care. The checks include an air conditioning belt inspection, assessment of electronic controls and up to two pounds of refrigerant for testing. Test and replace the battery. Battery failure is the No. 1 cause of car breakdowns. Often, batteries give slight warning signs when they run low. For example, you may notice the engine struggling to turn over upon ignition or see white, blue or orange fuzz forming around the battery. While a typical battery life is 4 1/2 years, each day of extreme weather — both hot and cold — contributes to the shortening of a battery’s life. Don’t overlook tread depth. When it comes to tire maintenance, proper depth is an easy way to maximize safety and performance. There are several ways to check tread depth, including the “penny test.” Simply insert a penny into your tire’s tread groove with Lincoln’s head upside down, facing you. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to replace your tires. Inspect brakes. If your car jerks or pulls to the side when you apply the brakes, or if you hear sounds like squeaking, squealing or grinding, it’s likely time for service. Always check your owner’s manual, but a general rule of thumb is to have your brakes checked every 12 months or 15,000 miles.

2017 MAZDA CX-9

DRIVING WITH DAN

IT’S A MINIVAN’S ATHLETIC STUNT DOUBLE

By Dan Wiese - Automotive Writer

continued from the front

that open nearly 90 degrees. Those doors, along with a tilt-and-scoot middle row, make third-row access easier than expected, though it still helps to be flexible. In any event, two average-stature adults can actually occupy the third row. Folding the seats for cargo is a no-brainer, with the 50/50split third row dropping via pull handles on the seat backs and the 60/40-split middle row — fore/aft adjustable when accommodating passengers — folds with a lever. On the road, CX-9’s cabin is quiet and handling is gratifyingly sharp, although the sixspeed automatic transmission’s shifts are noticeable. While most large crossovers use six-cylinder power, CX-9 opts for a 250-hp turbo four

for a torquey demeanor and enhanced mpg. With all 310 lb.-ft. of grunt onboard at a low 2,000 rpm, this one feels lively around town, though it plays its acceleration hand early. Our AWD edition returned 22 mpg in mixed city/hwy driving. With looks, utility and frugality, CX-9 is a matinee idol

among three-row people haulers. Dan Wiese is a freelance automotive writer. He is a regular contributor to the PostDispatch and to AAA Midwest Traveler magazine’s online Web Bonus. You can e-mail him at drivingwithdan@gmail.com

smile-making personality. For people who know Mazda, that’s no surprise. This brand has built its reputation around sparkling handling and Japanese reliability, sort of like a BMW of the Far East but without the luxury price tag. To me, though, the surprising thing about the new CX-5 isn’t that it has the best handling in its class. It’s that it has the nicest cabin, too. I’ve never driven a reasonably priced crossover that was fitted with as much rich, supple, softtouch material as this one. The leather feels fantastic. All the touch points are padded and smooth. Everything is stitched together and neatly styled like a fine Italian handbag. To be fair, my tester was a loaded Grand Touring model that rang up at $32,765. The base model’s cabin comes across as Bulgarian, not Italian, but still a nice-try knockoff of the Lexus, Audi and Mercedes interiors that command big bucks. It’s a cabin that’s trying harder — and reaching farther — than the CX-5 has attempted before. That’s important if Mazda will ever be able to expand its core buyers beyond a niche that cares religiously about brake feel and body roll. (Both those are spectacular, by the way, so car geeks like me can rejoice.) From a styling standpoint, the CX-5 seems to follow the same formula as many refreshed CUV competitors: a bigger grille, more body creases and

It’s got a space-age feel to it, sure, but it’s also surprisingly useful for those times you’re driving along and can’t remember the current speed limit. The CX-5 can read the signs and let you know.

HEALTHY SMOOTHIES BY DANIEL NEMAN • St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Everybody likes smoothies. Right? • OK, I don’t. But as far as I can tell, everybody else does. • There is something about a smoothie that just makes it instantly appealing to everyone (but me). You take a bunch of healthful fruit or vegetables, throw them together in a blender, add kale for some incomprehensible reason and blend them together into a messy drink that is sort of like a V8, only not as good.

Dessert lover bakes up success, one blog at a time DANIEL NEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Christina Lane is living the food bloggers’ dream. The Kirkwood resident isn’t

just writing a blog — she is making it her full-time job. Lane, 32, is the brains behind Dessert for Two, a popular blog (500,000 page views per month) devoted to scaled-down recipes for baked goods and other foods. After growing up in Texas, Lane moved to California. But she still missed her mother’s

food — the bundt cakes, the layer cakes, the chocolate-chip cookies. She would call her mother to ask for her recipes, but when she made them she ended up with a full three-layer cake, or two dozen cookies. So she decided to create a blog that focused on small-batch recipes, especially desserts.

Brownies for two, made in a loaf pan. Mexican wedding cookies for two. Gingerbread flan for two. That sort of thing. It was 2010, the Mesozoic Era of food blogging. Lane had received a master’s degree in horticulture and agronomy from the University of CaliforniaDavis, the year before. She held

a corporate job in greenhouse management. But she was bored, she said in a recent interview. Agriculture jobs end at 3 p.m., and she was used to working more or less around the clock. “I’m a workaholic. I get my See NEMAN • Page L4

WINE FINDS

BEST BITES: TAKIS FUEGO HOT CHILI AND LIME TORTILLA CHIPS

Spain’s Wine of the Sea BY GAIL APPLESON • Special to the Post-Dispatch

Although Spain is well-known for its robust red wines, it’s also home to delicious whites. Among them are crisp, lively and refreshing wines made from albariño grapes. Albariño is the dominant varietal in Rías Baixas, a Denominación de Origen in northwestern Spain on the Atlantic coast of Galicia. Known as “The Wine of the Sea,” albariño goes particularly well with fish and seafood, which are very popular in Galician cuisine. Served chilled, these whites are perfect on a blistering summer day. Below are examples of two different styles.

BODEGAS AS LAXAS 2015 VAL DO SOSEGO ALBARIÑO, RÍAS BAIXAS

BODEGAS RAMÓN BILBAO 2015 ALBARIÑO, RÍAS BAIXAS

Bought • Total Wine and More, 90 Brentwood Promenade Court, in July for $14.99 Description • This elegant and refreshing white comes from Bodegas As Laxas, one of the first wineries in Rías Baixas. It’s located in the village of Arbo in the Miño River Valley, on the border with Portugal. This is a beautifully balanced white that’s fresh, minerally and zesty with flavors of lemon and peach. Very easy to drink, this lightto-medium-bodied white can be enjoyed on its own or with appetizers, seafood and other light fare.

Bought • Total Wine and More, 90 Brentwood Promenade Court, in July for $12.99 Description • This fullerstyle albariño comes from the Rioja-based producer Ramón Bilbao and was made by its well-respected Mar de Frades (Sea of the Friars) winery located in the Val do Salnés subregion, considered albariño’s historic home. Bigger in body than the As Laxas with a thick mouthfeel, this rich albariño tastes of apples and pears with some tropical flavors. It would go well with fish and white meats.

Made in Mexico, these rolled tortilla chips are notable in several ways: They are much hotter than other brands of spicy chips, they are heartier than other chips and they have a stronger flavor of corn. The other flavors are stronger, too — the flavor of chile peppers and the subtler taste of lime that nicely cuts through the heat. They are not for the faint of heart.

Martin Raitzsch was born in Altenburg, a town in thenEast Germany during World War II, and was little more than a toddler in 1948 when his family fled the Russians and moved to Stuttgart, where he grew up. Nonetheless, he says he never really felt like he had a home. But at age 22 he came by ship as an exchange student to New York University — and his first sight of the Statue of Liberty from the ship as it sailed into New York Harbor so affected him, he knew beyond a doubt that one day America would be his home, and he would become a U.S. citizen (the dream of citizenship came true last year). In the meantime, until he moved here for good in 2003, Raitzsch served in the German army, taught history in Berchtesgaden, Germany, and elsewhere, and coordinated student exchange programs between Germany and the U.S., coming here frequently for his work. Then in 2002, Raitzsch met his future wife, Shirley, online. Originally from University City, she had been teaching math and science at international schools for 13 years, first in London, then Tokyo and finally Amsterdam. They wrote back and forth for months, then she flew to Munich and they met in person (she notes with a smile that he brought a

rose for a gift to that meeting). They were married in 2003, and since then have lived in San Francisco, Miami and Bloomfield Hills near Detroit (for teaching assignments). The couple moved to St. Louis in 2010, and to their current Kirkwood townhouse earlier this year. It is, says Raitzsch, his “28th address.” It features a well-appointed kitchen and lovely dining area, where much of the décor is memorabilia from elsewhere in the world. What got you interested in cooking? I watched what my mother did — she was a doctor working for the U.S. Army but still found time to cook (my father was an engineer, also working for the Army). Roast turkey was for special occasions, and when I was about 20, they taught me how to prepare one. A year later, I tried it myself and made a complete meal. After that (laughing), no cooking for about 20 years. Then, in my 40s, I became interested again, and now it’s sort of a hobby. I enjoy preparing traditional German dishes, and like making the one I’m presenting for guests. I also cook on the days my wife works, usually chicken seasoned with herbs we grow — cilantro, basil, parsley, rosemary and others. We also dry our own herbs. Do you have other hobbies? I play golf, and I love water sports. In Germany I owned a sail boat with some friends

and we went sailing often. Here, I swim at the “Y” at least every other day, early in the morning — a minimum of half a mile, usually a mile and a quarter, 86 laps. Where did you get the dish you’re presenting? From my grandparents, who passed it on to my parents. About 15 years ago I wrote down all their recipes. This one is called “Rouladen,” which comes from the French word “roll.” It’s easy to make and delicious. I serve it with either mashed potatoes or macaroni, and side dishes of German-style red cabbage and applesauce.

1. Place steaks on wooden cutting board, then using a meat mallet, pound the meat to ¼ inch thick. 2. Slice into 8 equal strips. 3. Salt and pepper to taste each side of the strips, then add a generous pinch each of dried basil and rosemary on the pounded side of the fillets. 4. Spread 1 teaspoon (more if desired) mustard on same side. 5. Divide the uncooked bacon 8 ways, lay strips along the fillets, folding bacon if necessary. 6. Cut the pickle spears in half lengthwise, then crosswise, and lay one piece on each fillet. 7. Divide ¾ of the onion slices evenly among the fillets, reserving the rest for the gravy. 8. Roll up each fillet, toppings inside, and secure with toothpicks or German Roulade-Nadeln (Roulade-needles). 9. Melt butter in a large straight-sided skillet over high-medium heat and add reserved onion slices. 10. Place prepared meat rolls in the butter and cook until all sides are browned, using tongs to turn frequently. 11. Add 2 ½ cups water and the red wine, reduce heat to medium, cover pan and simmer 60 to 70 minutes until meat is very tender (check with a toothpick or fork). 12. If liquid boils down too much, add remaining ½ cup water and the bouillon cube. 13. To thicken gravy (if desired) stir 2 teaspoons cornstarch into ¼ cup water and add to skillet, stirring until thickened. 14. Prepare macaroni according to package directions. 15. Serve Rouladen and gravy over cooked macaroni.

This week at area farmers markets, look for peaches, tomatoes, peppers of all kinds, greens, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, blackberries, blueberries, onions, sweet corn, green beans, snap peas, lettuces, carrots, beets, cabbage, radishes and leeks. To help you use those tomatoes and green bell peppers, here is a recipe from last year’s Let’s Eat for Turkish Shish Kebabs. Information provided by the Lake Saint. Louis Farmers and Artists Market

• Find our guide to area farmers markets at stltoday.com/ farmersmarkets

TURKISH SHISH KEBAB Yield: 4 servings 1 cup plain whole-fat yogurt ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or 2 teaspoons Aleppo pepper flakes 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 1½ pounds boneless loin or shoulder of lamb, cut into 1½-inch cubes (include some fatty pieces) 8 plum tomatoes or small round tomatoes 1 green bell pepper cut into 12 pieces or 12 bull’s horn peppers 4 pita breads 2 tablespoons ground sumac, optional Note: This recipe needs 24 hours to marinate the meat. 1. Combine the yogurt, olive oil, garlic, pepper flakes, salt and black pepper in a nonreactive bowl. Add the lamb cubes and toss to coat thoroughly. Let the lamb marinate in the refrigerator, covered, for 24 hours, stirring once or twice. 2. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water at least 30 minutes. Remove the lamb from the marinade and discard the marinade. Thread the cubes of meat onto skewers, alternating lean and fatty pieces. Thread the tomatoes onto separate, flat skewers (or 2 skewers side by side), thread the peppers onto another skewer. 3. Set up a grill to high heat. Brush and oil the grill grate, then arrange all of the kebabs on the hot grate, and grill, turning with tongs, until the skins on the vegetables are blistered and browned and the lamb is browned and done to taste, 8 to 12 minutes for well done. 4. Use a pita to protect your hand while unskewering the lamb and vegetables onto serving plates, dividing the vegetables evenly. Serve at once, accompanied by the pitas; sprinkle the optional sumac on top.

Mix cheesy eggs and ripe avocado for a yummy breakfast taco

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BY ELIZABETH KARMEL associated Press

Long before I knew that the origin of breakfast tacos were a hotly debated topic, I was eating them and loving them. I had my first breakfast taco many years ago in Houston and have enjoyed many more in Austin, Texas. But, I am not about to give birthright credit to any particular city because I am fairly certain that Mexican immigrants all grew up with their mother’s version of “breakfast tacos.” The beauty of the tortilla is that it makes normal fork and knife foods like scrambled

eggs (and pork barbecue, steak, fish, etc.), portable. And, regardless of where you had your first breakfast taco, if you are like me, you crave them and must make them yourself at home. I am a “no beans and no rice” kind of girl and prefer my breakfast tacos like my favorite egg sandwich but rolled, or folded over in a flour tortilla. To me, the essential ingredients must be cheesy eggs, a dash of hot sauce and cool slices of ripe avocado. I love bacon and prefer to serve it on the side where it stays crisp — but feel free to add it into the eggs. Not many places add slices of avocado unless you ask for it, but for me, the

avocado is what makes it a Tex-Mex breakfast taco instead of just eggs in a tortilla. When I have tomatoes and white onions on hand, I add those to my cheesy eggs and I am one happy girl. I like breakfast tacos so much that I have been known to have them for lunch or dinner as well. The truth is that you can put any of your favorite cheese and egg add-ins in your breakfast taco. In Texas, the potato, egg and cheese combo reigns as does the classic eggs and bacon. If you are a fan of chorizo, chorizo and crispy potatoes make a perfect match especially with some blistered poblano peppers thrown in for good measure.

Make healthful smoothies, without the kale SMOOTHIES • FROM L1

At least smoothies are a great way to get in a serving or two of vegetables or fruit, with all of their important vitamins and fiber, while still consuming little fat. I’m talking here about healthful smoothies, smoothies that are more or less good for you. Yes, a lot of people put ice cream in their smoothies, or flavored yogurt, but at some point these no longer become smoothies; they are more like a milkshake. Even protein powder or peanut butter can add considerable extra calories. Consider, for instance, the very first recipe for smoothies that pops up when you do an Internet search for “smoothie recipes.” It’s a Food Network recipe for a banana smoothie, and it is made from two bananas, ½ cup each of vanilla yogurt and milk, two teaspoons of honey, a pinch of cinnamon and ice. Sounds good, doesn’t it? But even if you use lowfat yogurt it still works out to 410 calories. That’s almost two 3 Musketeers bars’ worth of calories. Perhaps the greatest appeal of smoothies is that they are easy to make; you don’t have to be a smoothie king, as it were, to make them. To make them even easier, there are just a couple of things to remember: • If you will be making them out of dense vegetables, such as raw beets or sweet potatoes, use a very powerful blender. If you don’t have a powerful blender, cook the vegetables first. • Some smoothies call for ice, but the ice can water down the drink. If you use frozen fruit or vegetables, that will give it a slushy texture while still creating nothing but juice. I made four relatively healthful types of smoothies, giving myself only one rule: no kale. Our taste testers enjoyed them, with one exception. One of the drinks is primarily made from carrots and tomatoes, and it has a lovely orangish-red color. A couple of our tasters assumed it was watermelon and dashed it down expecting something sweet and watermelony.

They were disappointed, because it tasted healthful. I could see why they would feel that way. When you get your mouth ready for some watermelon, a combination of tomatoes and carrots is just not going to satisfy you — even when it also contains orange juice, lemon juice and ginger. Knowing what I was getting when I tried it, I thought it tasted pretty good. For a smoothie. My next smoothie is one of those combinations you might not think would work, unless you are already part of smoothie culture. But smoothies made from mixed berries and beets are so popular you can actually buy bags of frozen mixed berries and beets — all in the same bag — just to make them. I didn’t use one of those bags. I bought my own beets, and I even went to the trouble of peeling it, though that isn’t strictly necessary. One woman I know puts the whole beet in, greens and all. I did, however, use frozen mixed berries (to make it cold and give it the right texture). Into this melange I also pureed orange juice, yogurt, honey and a little granola, along with ice. It was too thick, so I thinned it out with more ice, and eventually added a little water. More orange juice would have worked just as well. No smoothie king worth his kosher salt makes smoothies without having at least a few green ones in his repertoire. I made two. One was dark green, with lots of spinach to go with frozen mango, banana and lemon juice. The other was light green, colored by that unfailingly winning combination of honeydew and cucumber. All I had to add to that was some white grape juice and frozen green grapes. It was good. No, it was great — even to an anti-smoothie person such as me. If you absolutely must, you can add kale to any of these smoothies. See if I care. Daniel Neman • 314-340-8133 Food writer @dnemanfood on Twitter dneman@post-dispatch.com

PHOENICIA MEDITERRANEAN DELI CHAAYBIYET Yield: 16 individual pastries For ashta (cream illing) 2 cups whole milk, divided 5½ tablespoons cornstarch 1/3 cup granulated sugar ¼ teaspoon vanilla powder (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract) 3 teaspoons rose water 2 teaspoons (or more to taste) orange blossom water For syrup ½ cup water 1 cup granulated sugar 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon rose water 1 teaspoon orange blossom water For chaaybiyet 1 box frozen phyllo dough Ghee (see notes), allow about 1 teaspoon per pastry 2 tablespoons ashta, per pastry 1 teaspoon ground untoasted pistachios, per pastry, for serving 1 tablespoon syrup, per pastry, for serving Notes: Find bottles of perfume-scented rose water and orange blossom water at international food markets. • Ghee is butter with the water and milk solids removed. Look for jars of ghee at international or gourmet stores, or to easily make your own, search online for “how to make ghee.” 1. Make Ashta. In a liquid measuring cup with a spout, stir together ½ cup milk and cornstarch; set aside. In a medium saucepan, heat remaining 1 ½ cups milk and sugar over medium heat, stirring continuously to prevent scorching. When bubbles form around the pan’s edge (indicating milk is about to begin boiling), keep stirring while slowly pouring milk-cornstarch mixture into saucepan. Cook, stirring continuously until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. It should be the consistency of thick pudding. Stir in vanilla, rose water and orange blossom water. Let cool, then refrigerate until ready to make individual pastries. Can be made ahead. Makes 2 cups, enough for 16 pastries. 2. Make syrup. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add sugar and stir until sugar dissolves. Return to a boil, let boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice, rose water and orange blossom water. Let cool, then refrigerate until ready to bake the pastries. Makes about 1 cup, enough for 16 pastries. 3. Make chaaybiyet. Thaw phyllo according to package instructions, usually 8 hours in the refrigerator. Just before making pastries, heat oven to 400 degrees (preferably convection) and line a baking sheet with parchment. Melt ghee. 4. Separate a stack of 4 layers of phyllo and carefully move onto a work surface. While working with the irst stack, keep the remaining phyllo covered so it doesn’t dry out. 5. Cut stack into 5-by-5-inch squares (or something similar to avoid wasting phyllo). Place one square on a plate, keeping the 4 layers intact and square. Starting at one corner, pull back 3 layers of phyllo, exposing the bottom layer in a triangular shape. Using a pastry brush, brush exposed area with ghee. Drop the second layer back down and brush with ghee, then the third and brush again, inally return the top layer. Switch to the opposite corner and repeat. (Don’t worry, this goes quickly, once you get the knack.) 6. Drop 2 tablespoons ashta onto one side of a buttered 5-by-5 square. Fold the square over itself to join two corners and form a triangular pocket containing the Ashta. With your ingers, press the edges together to seal. Brush the top with ghee. Use a small spatula to move the pastry onto the baking sheet. 7. Repeat with remaining 5-by-5 squares, making as many as you like. 8. Bake until golden and crispy, turning once, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let cool, best served same day as baked. 9. To serve Phoenicia-style, place a pastry onto a white oval individual serving plate. Artfully dust with pistachio, then drizzle with syrup.

SPECIAL REQUEST

Phoenicia’s pastry triangles are perfumed with rose, orange water

SID HASTINGS

BY ALANNA KELLOGG Special to the Post-Dispatch

Q • While visiting family in

St. Louis, my wife loved the pastry triangles at Phoenicia in Ellisville. I’d love to surprise her with a sample. — Ted Day, Bryson, Texas A • Sam Baydoun is a scientist by education and profession. But at Phoenicia Mediterranean Deli, the no-frills quick-serve restaurant he opened earlier this year with his wife, Rana, Baydoun is also often the chief cook and floor washer — and always the proud ambassador of the food and culture of Lebanon, his home country. With scientific precision, Baydoun lists how Lebanese cuisine is more “Mediterranean” than “Middle Eastern.” It starts with spices (vs. salt) and olive oil (vs. vegetable oil) and the prominence of vegetables (vs. meat). More Lebanese flavors? Allspice, pomegranate molasses and most especially, a blend of lemon (a lot of lemon, says Baydoun), extra-virgin olive oil and garlic. Lebanese food invites family-style eating, which is reflected in Phoenicia’s simple tables and

pillow-backed benches. Baydoun says, “Here people will taste an authentic Lebanese-inspired menu. I want people to sit and see one another, informally, like in a kitchen.” Phoenicia’s menu ranges freely across the Mediterranean region, including halal meats. Since opening, Phoenicia has become known for kibbeh (meatballs made with onions and pine nuts) and chicken shawarma (breast meat marinated with spices for 24 hours then grilled to order). Baydoun is especially proud of Phoenicia’s Mediterranean cucumber and tomato salad, a perfect salad for lunch, he says. “It’s quick and easy and

people love it.” Chaaybiyet (pronounced SHY-bee-yet, with a breathy inflection on the first syllable) are a popular sweet during Ramadan but are not, in fact, Lebanese. The triangles of phyllo dough are filled with a milky pastry cream perfumed with both rose water and orange blossom water. The result is a compelling and perhaps addictive combination of buttery crispness, cool creaminess and flowery sweetness. Special Request is written by Town & Country resident Alanna Kellogg, author of the online recipe column KitchenParade.com and “veggie evangelist” at the food blog about vegetables, A Veggie Venture.

self-worth from working. It’s not a good thing. I do not recommend it,” she said. So her excess energy went into creating the blog. She writes it, develops the recipes, cooks the food and photographs the results all by herself, and in her spare time she appears on television shows such as the “Today” show and the homeshopping network QVC. Television is what happens when you write successful cookbooks, something else Lane does in her spare time. Her first two books, “Dessert for Two” and “Comfort & Joy: Cooking for Two” landed on the New York Times’ bestseller list. The third, “Sweet & Simple: Dessert for Two” was released in February. A fourth book is in the works. The cookbooks are one reason Lane could leave her Lane job and go into blogging full time. Another is the money she receives from sponsorships. Every year she works with about 15 or 20 companies, including Kerrygold butter and the National Refrigerated and Frozen Food Association. All of this success has come despite her not being a professionally trained cook. But her mother and grandmother were both “amazing cooks,” she said. And her great-aunt ran a famous hamburger joint in Dallas called Rose’s Bluebonnet Sandwich Shop. Mickey Mantle ate there whenever he was in town, and it fed the stars of “Bonnie and Clyde” when they were filming in Dallas. Don Henley, one of the founding members of the rock band the Eagles, was a regular. “He would come all the time,” said Lane, who worked there taking orders. “He really liked chili on his burgers. Once (my aunt) wanted to call him and tell him that he should come in because she had made chili. She was frustrated because the operator wouldn’t give her his phone number.” When Lane began the blog, she was

actually cooking for one, not two. “It was aspirational to cook for two,” she said. “I was just hoping to attract a husband.” Did it work? “I am married, so it worked,” she said. Her husband, Brian, “was really attracted to my drive, that I worked all day on my day job and that I came home and was building this little business of mine,” she said. The couple moved to Kirkwood 3½ years ago for Brian to take a job with the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership. Their 2-year-old daughter, Camille, is often mentioned in the blog. Despite Lane’s job writing a blog about baking and desserts, “I’m one of those mean moms that is kind of denying her sugar. I feel like her whole life she’s going to grow up with me pushing sugar, so I’m trying to delay that as long as possible.” Daniel Neman • 314-340-8133 Food writer @dnemanfood on Twitter dneman@post-dispatch.com

Chill drinks with watermelon cubes

One unlikely fruit makes this pudding the berry best

BY LEAH ESKIN Chicago Tribune (Tns)

Ice is genius. The cube is genius. The ice cube is genius times two to the third. No doubt a large number. And yet, the ice enthusiast maintains aspirations. Like transparency. Many a cocktail engineer employs distilled water, double-boiled water, double-boiled distilled water or an enormous machine that squeezes out the air bubbles, yielding perfectly clear ice. He carves the crystal into big, bold blocks that make drinks colder — and cooler.

On the flip side, many an ice aficionada fills her trays with berries, flowers and herbs — frozen fossils that dress up chill concoctions. Both approaches suffer from the same design flaw. Ice is crafted from water, and water tends toward watery. Which explains the current craze for redundancy: Coffee cubes for iced coffee, chai cubes for iced tea, cookies-and-milk cubes for no good reason at all. Watermelon is one step ahead: Just cut and freeze. The cubes tumble out pretty, tasty and incapable of diluting a drink. Genius, minus the fuss.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE (TNS)

LIMEADE Yield: 5 cups syrup, serves 10 4 big slabs watermelon 2 cups water 2 cups granulated sugar Finely grated zest of 4 limes

1. Cut watermelon into neat 1-inch cubes. (No need to remove seeds — they’re cute.) Set cubes on a rimmed baking sheet and freeze irm, at least 2 hours. Pile into a zip-close bag, and store in freezer. 2. Measure water and sugar into a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Stir until sugar has dissolved and syrup turns from cloudy to clear, 3 to 4 minutes. Pull pan of heat. Stir in zest. Pour into a heat-proof jar and allow to cool to room temperature, uncovered. Transfer to refrigerator to chill, covered. When cold, stir in juice. Keep tightly covered in the refrigerator. 3. For each drink, pile frozen watermelon cubes into a tall glass. Add 1 mint leaf. Pour in equal parts water (or sparkling water) and lime syrup.

When berry season comes around, I practically hear trumpets announcing the fruit’s arrival at the local market. I am reliably ready to pounce — eager to pile the plump beauties onto my yogurt bowls, work them into salads, blend them into smoothies and bake them into pies and muffins. When I first encountered this classic U.K. dessert — what Britons call a “pudding” — I was enthralled. It is stunning,

Yield: 6 servings 12 slices soft wholewheat bread, crusts removed (6 ounces total) 2 cups sliced strawberries, plus more for optional garnish 2 cups blueberries, plus more for optional garnish 2 cups raspberries ¼ cup water 3 tablespoons honey 2 very ripe medium bananas ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

component. Stirring the mashed banana into the juice that is rendered from heating the berries adds enough sweetness that only a little honey is needed to round it out, plus you get the added layer of banana flavor that pairs so well with strawberries and blueberries. I also used whole-grain bread instead of white, a change that gives the dessert a somewhat healthier sensibility without sacrificing an essential tender, melt-in-your mouth quality. This is a treat that is truly worthy of its very special star ingredient.

with a cascade of berries mingling with layers of bread soaked and pressed in the fruit’s brilliantly hued juices. The dish has the quality of an elegantly plated, berry-soaked sponge cake, but besides the fruit, it is made with little more than humble slices of bread. The usual recipe involves heaps of sugar though, so I decided to take a stab at a betterfor-you version and was thrilled with the result. The key twist is to take advantage of the inherent sweetness of ripe bananas, which are not a typical summer pudding

Note: You’ll need six 1-cup ramekins. 1. Cut a round from each piece of bread that will just it into your 1-cup ramekins. (Save the remaining scraps of bread for another use, such as bread crumbs.) 2. Combine the berries, water and honey in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most of the berries break down. While the berry mixture is still hot, mash the banana with a fork until smooth, then stir it into the berry mixture, along with the vanilla extract. 3. Place a heaping tablespoon of the berrybanana mixture in each ramekin. Add one round of bread to each, then divide the remaining berrybanana mixture among the ramekins and top each with another round of bread. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet (to catch any overlowing juices during baking). Loosely cover each one with plastic wrap, then place a 15-ounce weight, such as a can of beans, on top of each one to compress the pudding. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, and up to 1 day. 4.

South was Nevena Senior, who started out representing Bulgaria in international competitions three decades ago. She moved to England at about the turn of the century and has been a mainstay on the English women’s team ever since. Senior won the opening heart lead in dummy perforce, and crossed to her hand with the king of diamonds. She led

a low club to the eight, king, and ace. East led a trump, which Senior won in her hand with the queen and cashed the jack of diamonds to complete drawing trumps. She led her nine of clubs and stopped to think when West played the five. West had played high-low in clubs, usually showing an even number of cards in the suit. Had West started with four clubs to the jack, the winning play would be to run the nine of clubs. Four low clubs in the West hand and playing the queen would win. Perhaps, against a slam, West was false-carding in clubs and the clubs were splitting 3-3. The fall of the eight of clubs, combined with South’s nine, had made a sequence out of dummy’s ten-seven. Senior showed her card-reading skills by rising with dummy’s queen and leading the 10. She held her breath and discarded a spade when East played low. This was the winning play and Senior had her slam. Well done! (07/26/17)

DEAR ABBY

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

Irresponsible boyfriend earns nothing

Dear Can’t Let Go • You say you are tired of being treated that way? Congratulations on your burst of clarity. It has finally dawned on you that you have been enabling a lazy, ungrateful, irresponsible freeloader who has no respect for you or his child. This isn’t “love.” You should have realized you would be raising

two children when he didn’t care enough to show up for the birth of the baby. Do what you know you must: Kick him out and move on. Dear Abby • Last year was my son’s first year in kindergarten. A child who was allergic to peanuts and soy, among other things, was in his class. Therefore, as a working mom, quick-fix peanut butter sandwiches were out of the question. The school is very cautious. They actually had a separate table in the cafeteria for children with allergies. What started to bother me was the fact that because one child had allergies, treats for the other 20 kids were prohibited — birthday cakes, candies, cookies, anything with eggs, etc. This has continued into Boy Scouts. Again, all the children have to go without because of this one child. What is appropriate? Must all 20 kids accommodate one so he doesn’t feel left out, or does his mom start teaching her child that he has allergies and there are foods he can’t have? They aren’t

going to make a college dorm free of peanut butter. Shouldn’t he start to understand that now, or must everyone adapt to his strict diet to make him comfortable? I want to be able to make gingerbread houses during the holiday season and have eggnog with the kids. I understand I should be grateful my child doesn’t suffer from these allergies, but what are the boundaries? — JUST NEED TO KNOW IN CONNECTICUT Dear Just • This precaution is not meant to be an inconvenience for you. It is meant to save lives. If you wish to create gingerbread houses and make special treats for your children and their playmates, nothing is stopping you. But they should not be taken to school if there is any chance the classmate with allergies could somehow get ahold of one of them.

Dear Abby • My boyfriend cheated on me the whole time I was pregnant last year. He lived in Florida, and I lived in Missouri. He didn’t make it back for our son’s birth like he promised. Now that he’s back, he stays out all night. He won’t get a job to help support our family. He lies in bed all day, gets so drunk he can’t drive and doesn’t help out around the house, either. It’s obvious that I should let him go. I’m 11 years older than he is, and he obviously isn’t ready to grow up, even though he’s 30. I love him, but I’m tired of being treated this way. How can I get over this? — CAN’T LET GO IN KANSAS CITY

‘Ghosting’ a friend betrays immaturity

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

Dear Carolyn • I would like your perspective on a ghosting situation. I met “Rose” four years ago in college. We kept in touch even after she transferred to a diferent college and after I graduated and moved to D.C. Despite a sixyear age diference, we’ve always gotten along and talked almost every day. Then, one day two weeks ago, Rose stopped talking to me completely. She started by not answering my texts. I tried calling, emailing, Facebooking and even Instagram messaging with no response. I got worried and reached out to a mutual friend; he said she’s fine and has maintained contact with him. I’m completely baffled. We didn’t have a fight and I can’t think of a reason for Rose to cut me off like this. I miss her. We were supposed to go to a concert together later this summer and I’m starting to think that might

not happen. Do you have any advice? — Wondering in Washington Answer • Not really — which is exactly the point and power of ghosting. You have no recourse. You just text and dwell and fret and twist yourself into progressively sadder knots. Full disclosure: I see ghosting (and other silent treatments) as weak, cowardly and cruel, except when necessary to escape dangerous relationships safely. By caring, we empower people to hurt our feelings; ghosting abuses that power, and thus accounts for some of the bigger holes in my compassion and empathy reservoirs. So, Rose. Someone capable of such an epic failure of maturity was going to let you down at some point — either over this mystery conflict or another, more scrutable one; either by

ghosting or by noisier means; either in the near future or the distant one. People who can’t handle direct communication when they’re upset about something also can’t handle a close, longterm friendship. I’m sorry. The exception is if she comes around and admits, with apologies, that she was wrong to vanish without explanation and wrong to believe that even a valid grievance justified harming you so. If she does express such regrets — and I hope she does, with breath unheld — then be ready to hear her out calmly on whatever started it all.

Yogurt can help prevent UTIs Dear Dr. Roach • I have had many urinary infections. My daughter-in-law told me to eat some yogurt every day to see if that would help. I haven’t had a bladder infection since. I hope this will help other women with this condition. — L.E.P.

FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

Answer • I appreciate your writing. Yogurt with live healthy bacteria sometimes can reduce recurrent urine infections: The healthy bacteria reduce the unhealthy bacteria that can cause disease. Many studies have been performed; some have shown benefit, while others have not. Probiotics (live cultures of healthy bacteria) also have shown similar mixed results. However, the downside of eating yogurt is small; it certainly is worth a try. I often get asked for tips to reduce urinary infections, so I appreciate your writing and also hope someone is helped by your advice.

BIZARRO • By Dan Piraro

CORNERED • By Mike Baldwin NON SEQUITUR • By Wiley Miller

Dear Dr. Roach • I have foot swelling, which can get very bad. Sometimes I get fluid leaking from an area on my left leg. The fluid is clear or a little yellow. I take a medication called minoxidil for high blood pressure. — D.W. Answer • Minoxidil is a rarely used blood pressure medicine (but often is used topically for hair growth). It frequently causes the body to retain salt and water. In fact, I was taught never to use it unless someone had failed other medications, and then only in combination with a medication like furosemide (Lasix) to reduce the fluid retention. It sounds like you have so much fluid in your legs that the skin is starting to break down, and you are developing weeping of the fluid. The yellow color probably is from the proteins in the fluid; however, there is always a danger of infection when the skin is broken down. Treatment is to change medications, or at least to try adding a diuretic (diuretics are not effective for many people with leg swelling). In the short term, try raising your legs above your heart for 30 minutes, three times a day. Compression stockings can be helpful, but not when the skin is broken down. See your doctor soon. I don’t know for sure that it’s the minoxidil causing this. There are many causes for leg swelling, including serious conditions such as heart failure, liver disease and protein loss from the kidneys. However, minoxidil is so often the cause of this problem that I would start there.
