Right-to-work fuels GOP state Senate primary

Incumbents face easy races, still raise big money

BY MARK SCHLINKMANN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

BY CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. CHARLES COUNTY • The controversial “right to work” issue has helped fuel a high-spending Republican primary campaign for eastern St. Charles County’s vacant state Senate seat. Labor-backed state Rep. Anne Zerr of St. Charles and businessman Bill Eigel of Weldon Spring, a favorite of rightto-work supporters, each are on pace to spend more than a half-million dollars on their races. A wildcard is a third candidate: Michael Carter of O’Fallon, an attorney in private practice and Wentzville’s part-time municipal judge. He says his law firm has put $100,000 into the race so far, with more on the way. Meanwhile, two Democratic candidates, Richard Orr and Greg Upchurch, are spending little on their primary contest in the GOP-leaning district. Both live near St. Peters.

City is banking on Biddle Street TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Ask Eddie Roth how the city of St. Louis is going to succeed in taking over from controversial televangelist Larry Rice in providing overnight shelter to the homeless in downtown St. Louis, and Roth ofers a pithy bit of circular logic. “The way to do better than Larry Rice,” said Roth, the city’s director of human services, “is to do better than Larry Rice.” Roth’s point is that if the city’s new Biddle House fulfills its promise as a one-stop shelter that quickly connects the homeless to services and housing, then the longstanding loitering and crime problems connected to Rice’s shelter downtown near Washington Avenue will simply go away. It’s a hopeful thought from my former editorial page colleague, who as a writer and a person leans toward optimism every chance he gets. Unfortunately, a series of summer stumbles has the city’s dream of being better than Larry Rice seem at times out of reach. There was Police Chief Sam Dotson’s announced crackdown on panhandlers after a series of high-profile crimes, most of which had nothing to do with the homeless. Dotson brought a PR nightmare upon himself when he tweeted about the city’s

new crime app’s leading to a panhandling arrest. Turns out it was a trespassing case, but the damage was done. Then Alderman Jack Coatar filed a poorly worded bill that, if passed, would criminalize the very act of feeding the homeless, or in certain circumstances, even handing them a bottle of water on a public sidewalk. Rice, as he is wont to do, held a news conference denouncing the proposal. The bill awaits debate. The city’s changing plans and pressure from downtown neighbors led to the early closure of The Bridge, the nonprofit that had been providing downtown meals and daytime shelter to the homeless. It closed a month before Biddle House was scheduled to open to replace it. Then last week happened. After months of rushing to get the city’s new full-time day and overnight shelter opened on North Tucker Boulevard, Lewis Reed, the president of the Board of Aldermen, decided at the 11th hour to stand in the way. At the meeting of the three-member Board of Estimate and Apportionment, Reed suddenly voiced his opposition to awarding the final contracts to two area nonprofits to run the Biddle House, scheduled to open Aug. 1. Reed had already supported the Biddle House project in at least three diferent votes going back to January. But that was before Mayor Francis Slay announced he wouldn’t seek a fifth term and Reed made it clear he wanted the job. It was before Reed received $5,000

in campaign donations in June from the Stone, Leyton & Gershman law firm. That’s the firm where attorney Daryl Piggee works. Piggee is representing the Carr Square Tenants Association, which represents a neighborhood of mostly African-Americans just west of Biddle House, some of whom are opposed to the homeless shelter locating there. So when the final vote to approve the Biddle House shelter came to pass, Reed gave a speech about how he’d be a better mayor than Slay, and then he voted no. Comptroller Darlene Green, who had also supported the Biddle House in previous votes, decided to abstain, leaving Slay’s yes vote meaningless. Slay got in a verbal tit-for-tat with Reed, and blamed the delay on everybody’s favorite punching bag these days, NorthSide Regeneration developer Paul McKee. This is no way to do “better than Larry Rice.” The entire episode reminded me of the title of a ’70s comedy album by Steve Martin: “Let’s Get Small.” In a city that has big dreams, its elected leaders are often small. It is an internecine problem prevalent in St. Louis politics and it gets in the way of progress over and over again. Reed said he was just speaking up for constituents who convinced him their voices hadn’t been heard. He said that he regretted his previous votes in favor of Biddle House and that the campaign donation had nothing to do with his deci-

sion-making. “Why the hell would a $5,000 donation from Steve Stone make a diference to me?” Reed told me. Whatever Reed’s motivations, on Friday, cooler heads prevailed — or at least one of them did — and the E&A board approved the Biddle House contracts, lest it find itself in default of the loans from the Missouri Housing Development Commission it had already voted to accept. Green voted with Slay; Reed was the lone no vote. On Monday, I toured the Biddle House, which a week from now is supposed to have its 96 beds for men open, and a full lunch room and other services ready to get the homeless connected to housing quickly. The beds and chairs have been delivered. The outdoor fencing to provide privacy (to the homeless, or neighbors, or both) is up. The facility is taking shape. It looks at first glance like it will be the clean, modern facility Roth is promising. Providing services to the homeless is a diicult task in the best of circumstances. On Aug. 2, Biddle House will (probably) open a new chapter in how St. Louis treats its homeless population, with the city more invested than it’s ever been. Let’s hope Larry Rice doesn’t have the last laugh. Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

Five candidates present a variety of issues at forum in St. Louis BY KORAN ADDO St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Five candidates running to

represent Missouri’s 1st Congressional District in Washington next year shared a stage at Christ Church Cathedral on Tuesday, each trying to make their case to the nearly 90 people in attendance. The candidates — three Democrats and two Republicans — discussed topics ranging from education to toxic waste and the aftermath of Ferguson. The forum, hosted by the League of Women Voters, comes a week before the candidates face of in next week’s primaries. On the topic of Michael Brown’s killing by then-Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson, incumbent Rep. William Lacy Clay talked about his push for body cameras and a bill he has sought that would require any police shooting resulting in death to be handed over to a special prosecutor. “If Darren Wilson had a body camera, maybe there would’ve been a different outcome from the grand jury,” he said. State Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal frequently spoke about her signature issue: health crises caused by toxic waste in area landfills. “People are dying because of radio-

active waste,” she said. “Why hasn’t anything been done about it?” On education, Republican Steven G. Bailey, an adjunct professor, repeatedly came back to the need for a school choice voucher system. Allowing parents to take their children out of failing schools is the right thing to do, he said. He also called for a program that would allow middle schoolers who become disinterested in their studies the option to transfer into work training programs. Democrat Bill Haas spoke about misplaced priorities — namely his belief that city leaders have focused too much on developing downtown at the expense of St. Louis’ other neighborhoods. “If you build strong neighborhoods, a strong downtown will follow,” he said. Paul Berry III, a Republican, spoke often about free market principles, small government and the need to cut back on regulations that he said stifle small businesses. Berry also took aim at the region’s public transportation system. Rather then relying on taxpayers to pay for improvements, local officials would be better served reconfiguring the current system and providing busing to major job centers, even if metro systems operate at a loss.

Housing project comments sought by council member

Ferguson council lets violations slide as conduct rules take efect

Residents fear traffic woes BY STEVE GIEGERICH st. Louis Post-dispatch

CLAYTON • The St. Louis County Council

member representing South County said Tuesday that he would pursue a hearing to allow critics the opportunity to air concerns about the proposed development of a 232-unit apartment complex along a road that residents say is already too congested. “Let’s not rush anything — let them have their say and we can go from there,” Councilman Kevin O’Leary said after the Tuesday meeting at which opponents launched the first volley in what could be a protracted fight to block the 17acre project. The county planning commission recommended earlier this month council approval of the development. The approval came despite nearly 200 South County O’Leary residents showing up at a June public hearing to register their objections to the proposal. “This proposed complex will change the fundamental nature of the neighborhood,” nearby resident Ernest Trakas told the council. Trakas is a Republican candidate for the seat the retiring O’Leary will vacate after the November election. Another resident, Bill Hogan, said opponents had garnered 1,600 signatures on petitions balking at the planned JHB Properties’ development. “I have yet to meet one person who supports this project,” said resident David Gregory, a Republican seeking a South County seat in the Missouri House. JHB Properties is seeking to begin construction on a vacant site at Tesson Ferry and Bauer Roads in the Concord section of unincorporated South County. Residents contend the addition of the 232 apartments spread over 10 buildings will exacerbate congestion in an area that is already overrun with traic. “Bauer Road is the driveway to our homes,” Trakas told council members. “Our entrance and exit to the rest of the world is along Bauer Road.” O’Leary said he planned to seek advice from council leadership on how to proceed with the hearing process. The council, of next week to accommodate the primary election, will next convene on Aug. 9.

BY STEPHEN DEERE st. Louis Post-dispatch

FERGUSON • Gerry Jasper brought

her red clown nose with her but didn’t wear it. Instead, Jasper, who turned 65 on Tuesday, put a birthday hat on her head, smiled as everyone in the Ferguson City Council chambers sang “Happy Birthday” to her and then read a poem. “In 14 days it will be August 9, two years since the death of Michael Brown … the world is watching our town,” it began. The timer beeped after one minute – the limit established by a new ordinance regulating conduct at public

meetings. The ordinance also prohibits large signs, approaching the dais without permission, obscene language and props. City leaders said the new law was necessary after nearly two years of raucous meetings. Tuesday evening’s City Council meeting was the new law’s first test. Violations abounded. People clapped. One activist knitted. Another took a phone call. The police oicers did nothing. In fact, when Jasper, who often mocks city leaders by wearing a clown nose, exceeded the time limit, police Lt. Col. Al Eickoff yelled: “Keep going!” And she did – for another 5 minutes

and 45 seconds. Then Councilwoman Elle Jones left her seat to hand Jasper a birthday card, signed by the council and city staf. The council also agreed to amend the ordinance to allow for clapping and cellphone use as long attendees didn’t talk on their phones in council chambers. They also discussed taking out a provision that banned knitting needles. “If you’re here for the first time, you might not have an appreciation for what happened,” said Councilman Wesley Bell. “I think it’s an example of the baby steps that we’re making.” Stephen Deere • 314-340-8116 @stephencdeere on Twitter sdeere@post-dispatch.com

Kroenke gets rivals for development of key site BY JACOB BARKER st. Louis Post-dispatch

MARYLAND HEIGHTS • This west St. Louis County suburb hasn’t had trouble attracting developers to 1,800 acres of open floodplain near two of the region’s major roadways. The challenge for a city that has long sought to develop the land behind the Howard Bend Levee District near Highway 141 and Highway 364 may instead be getting competing developers to coordinate on the massive undertaking. The city has received six development proposals that cover at least part of the site, and Maryland Heights released some details earlier this month. However, much of the attention has focused on a proposal from Alan Bornstein, whose investment partner on the project is Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke. Bornstein pitched the Howard Bend plan to city economic development oicials in January, but since then more proposals have been submitted. At one of the first public hearings Tuesday on the city’s plans to develop the area, Maryland Heights oicials indicated that some developers might not wait for a larger proposal that takes a comprehensive approach to the area’s development. The city, however, can refuse their rezoning requests if they don’t fit with its long-term plan. “We don’t want to move forward with individual development proposals on specific sites if they interfere with the big picture,” Maryland Heights planner Mike Zeek said in an interview after the meeting. At least two developers are moving forward with requests for zoning to accommodate their proposals. Panattoni Development, which owns 135 acres in the area, is seeking a zoning amendment to allow oice, light industrial and distribution facilities in a business park. And Clayton-based Altus Properties has already requested rezoning to accomodate 400 to 450 market-rate apartments on 32 acres it owns. Meanwhile, Zeek called Bornstein and Kroenke’s Howard Bend Development proposal the “most comprehensive.” It calls for mixed-use residential and commercial space on 570 acres along with an almost 1,400-acre recreation area managed by a nonprofit. Though the more comprehensive proposal is an advantage, Zeek said, it’s a disadvantage that Bornstein and Kroenke don’t own all the acreage yet. Bornstein’s group has had “limited” contact with the property owners, he said, but the “best-case scenario” is for the developers to work together. The location of so much contiguous acreage close to the heart of the metro area makes it some of the most valuable in the region, and the city is trying to make sure that what is built is high quality and meshes, said City Administrator Jim Krischke. The introductory workshop for members of the City Council and city commissions didn’t reveal much more than the broad ideas already submitted to Maryland Heights, and it wasn’t a public hearing that gave residents an opportunity to speak. About 50 people attended the meeting, some from Maryland Heights Residents for Responsible Growth, a grassroots group formed to oppose using taxpayer-funded incentives to develop the floodplain. David Stokes, executive director of the Great Rivers Habitat Alliance, said “Preserving this as floodplain is valuable for the city and the region Stokes’ organization advocates for floodplain preservation to help prevent flooding downstream.

Housing project comments sought by council member

Ferguson council lets violations slide as conduct rules take efect

Residents fear traffic woes BY STEVE GIEGERICH st. Louis Post-dispatch

CLAYTON • The St. Louis County Council

member representing South County said Tuesday that he would pursue a hearing to allow critics the opportunity to air concerns about the proposed development of a 232-unit apartment complex along a road that residents say is already too congested. “Let’s not rush anything — let them have their say and we can go from there,” Councilman Kevin O’Leary said after the Tuesday meeting at which opponents launched the first volley in what could be a protracted fight to block the 17acre project. The county planning commission recommended earlier this month council approval of the development. The approval came despite nearly 200 South County O’Leary residents showing up at a June public hearing to register their objections to the proposal. “This proposed complex will change the fundamental nature of the neighborhood,” nearby resident Ernest Trakas told the council. Trakas is a Republican candidate for the seat the retiring O’Leary will vacate after the November election. Another resident, Bill Hogan, said opponents had garnered 1,600 signatures on petitions balking at the planned JHB Properties’ development. “I have yet to meet one person who supports this project,” said resident David Gregory, a Republican seeking a South County seat in the Missouri House. JHB Properties is seeking to begin construction on a vacant site at Tesson Ferry and Bauer Roads in the Concord section of unincorporated South County. Residents contend the addition of the 232 apartments spread over 10 buildings will exacerbate congestion in an area that is already overrun with traic. “Bauer Road is the driveway to our homes,” Trakas told council members. “Our entrance and exit to the rest of the world is along Bauer Road.” O’Leary said he planned to seek advice from council leadership on how to proceed with the hearing process. The council, of next week to accommodate the primary election, will next convene on Aug. 9.

FERGUSON • Gerry Jasper brought

her red clown nose with her but didn’t wear it. Instead, Jasper, who turned 65 on Tuesday, put a birthday hat on her head, smiled as everyone in the Ferguson City Council chambers sang “Happy Birthday” to her and then read a poem. “In 14 days it will be August 9, two years since the death of Michael Brown … the world is watching our town,” it began. The timer beeped after two minutes – the limit established by a new ordinance regulating conduct at public

meetings. The ordinance also prohibits large signs, approaching the dais without permission, obscene language and props. City leaders said the new law was necessary after nearly two years of raucous meetings. Tuesday evening’s City Council meeting was the new law’s first test. Violations abounded. People clapped. One activist knitted. Another took a phone call. The police oicers did nothing. In fact, when Jasper, who often mocks city leaders by wearing a clown nose, exceeded the time limit, police Lt. Col. Al Eickoff yelled: “Keep going!” And she did – for another 5 minutes

and 45 seconds. Then Councilwoman Ella Jones left her seat to hand Jasper a birthday card, signed by the council and city staf. The council also agreed to amend the ordinance to allow for clapping and cellphone use as long attendees didn’t talk on their phones in council chambers. They also discussed taking out a provision that banned knitting needles. “If you’re here for the first time, you might not have an appreciation for what happened,” said Councilman Wesley Bell. “I think it’s an example of the baby steps that we’re making.” Stephen Deere • 314-340-8116 @stephencdeere on Twitter sdeere@post-dispatch.com

Kroenke gets rivals for development of key site BY JACOB BARKER st. Louis Post-dispatch

MARYLAND HEIGHTS • This west St. Louis County suburb hasn’t had trouble attracting developers to 1,800 acres of open floodplain near two of the region’s major roadways. The challenge for a city that has long sought to develop the land behind the Howard Bend Levee District near Highway 141 and Highway 364 may instead be getting competing developers to coordinate on the massive undertaking. The city has received six development proposals that cover at least part of the site, and Maryland Heights released some details earlier this month. However, much of the attention has focused on a proposal from Alan Bornstein, whose investment partner on the project is Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke. Bornstein pitched the Howard Bend plan to city economic development oicials in January, but since then more proposals have been submitted. At one of the first public hearings Tuesday on the city’s plans to develop the area, Maryland Heights oicials indicated that some developers might not wait for a larger proposal that takes a comprehensive approach to the area’s development. The city, however, can refuse their rezoning requests if they don’t fit with its long-term plan. “We don’t want to move forward with individual development proposals on specific sites if they interfere with the big picture,” Maryland Heights planner Mike Zeek said in an interview after the meeting. At least two developers are moving forward with requests for zoning to accommodate their proposals. Panattoni Development, which owns 135 acres in the area, is seeking a zoning amendment to allow oice, light industrial and distribution facilities in a business park. And Clayton-based Altus Properties has already requested rezoning to accomodate 400 to 450 market-rate apartments on 32 acres it owns. Meanwhile, Zeek called Bornstein and Kroenke’s Howard Bend Development proposal the “most comprehensive.” It calls for mixed-use residential and commercial space on 570 acres along with an almost 1,400-acre recreation area managed by a nonprofit. Though the more comprehensive proposal is an advantage, Zeek said, it’s a disadvantage that Bornstein and Kroenke don’t own all the acreage yet. Bornstein’s group has had “limited” contact with the property owners, he said, but the “best-case scenario” is for the developers to work together. The location of so much contiguous acreage close to the heart of the metro area makes it some of the most valuable in the region, and the city is trying to make sure that what is built is high quality and meshes, said City Administrator Jim Krischke. The introductory workshop for members of the City Council and city commissions didn’t reveal much more than the broad ideas already submitted to Maryland Heights, and it wasn’t a public hearing that gave residents an opportunity to speak. About 50 people attended the meeting, some from Maryland Heights Residents for Responsible Growth, a grassroots group formed to oppose using taxpayer-funded incentives to develop the floodplain. David Stokes, executive director of the Great Rivers Habitat Alliance, said “Preserving this as floodplain is valuable for the city and the region Stokes’ organization advocates for floodplain preservation to help prevent flooding downstream.

Police build rapport with free ice cream Operation Polar Cops sweetens relationships with St. Louis children, families BY ASHLEY LISENBY St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The eager hands of children reached up to the outside of the window of an ice cream truck, anticipating the cool touch of a plastic cup filled with smooth vanilla-chocolate swirl ice cream. The man who handed it over was a uniformed police oicer. The St. Louis Police Department began its agency-operated ice cream truck initiative called Operation Polar Cops at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis on Tuesday. Ice cream truck organizers say they want to build a positive rapport with children and families across the city. “Law enforcement realizes the need to bridge gaps in our community. It is more important than ever to engage citizens and build trust,” Police Chief Sam Dotson said in a news release. “Operation Polar Cops is a unique tool to reach our youngest citizens.” Dotson said the department wanted the ice cream truck to introduce oicers

DIGEST CHESTERFIELD > Renovated library set to open • The seventh branch in the St. Louis County Library’s renovation project re-opens at 9 a.m. Wednesday in Chesterield. The Samuel C. Sachs branch, which underwent a $3 million rehab over the past seven and a half months, features a colorful area for children, a larger meeting room, quiet study rooms, a vending area and new bathrooms. Large seats accommodate children and their parent or guardian, and a large computer lab features new machines. The library, 16400 Burkhardt Place, is just west of Chesterield Mall. In its $120 million multiyear project, the library system plans to update or replace every library except Eureka Hills, which is in a rented building. Voters approved a tax rate increase in 2012 to pay for the work on the 20-building system. (From staf reports) JEFFERSON CITY > Court throws out law limiting jobless beneits • A state law that capped unemployment beneits for laid-of workers at 13 weeks has been found unconstitutional by the Missouri Supreme Court. In a 4-3 decision, the high court found that the Republican-led Legislature incorrectly approved the change, which slashed the maximum number of weeks of jobless beneits to one of the lowest levels in the nation. The controversial measure moved through the Republican-led House and Senate in the spring but was vetoed by Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat, who said the reduction would be “unfair” to people who were out of work.

idea was inspired by an ice cream truck initiative started by the Boston Police Department.

The House overrode the governor’s veto in the spring, but the Senate didn’t act on the override until the September veto session. The court court said the Senate missed its constitutional window to act. Allowing the veto override to stand “would encourage the Legislature to engage in gamesmanship, delay, and dilatory conduct that would harm the people of Missouri by failing to enact legislation in a timely manner,” noted the 13-page majority opinion written by Justice George Draper. (Kurt Erickson) ST. LOUIS > Opponent’s donor sues Brunner • A California venture capitalist is suing John Brunner, one of four candidates for governor in next Tuesday’s Missouri Republican primary, alleging Brunner defamed him during a recent political debate by calling him “the owner of a teenage sex slave.” Investor Michael Goguen has donated $1 million to one of Brunner’s opponents, Eric Greitens. Goguen subsequently made national news when a female acquaintance iled a lawsuit against him alleging years of sexual abuse. Goguen has denied the allegation, and has iled a counter-suit against her alleging extortion. Greitens’ three GOP campaign opponents, including Brunner, have turned the issue into a political hammer, repeatedly calling on Greitens to return Goguen’s money. Brunner took it a step during a debate in St. Charles on July 13, saying: “(I) refuse to be lectured by a guy who took $1 million from the owner of a teenage sex slave.” The woman’s suit against Goguen doesn’t claim she was a teenager during her interactions with him, and she hasn’t

The suit, iled Tuesday in St. Charles Circuit Court, also alleges that Brunner’s comments left the false impression with the public that Goguen has been criminally charged. The woman made her allegations in a civil suit. Brunner didn’t use Goguen’s name when he made his “sex slave” comment — though Goguen is the only donor who has given Greitens $1 million, and the sex-abuse suit against him had been widely reported. Brunner’s campaign called Goguen’s suit “a desperate attempt by Eric Greitens’ California political benefactor and friend” to divert attention from the fact that Greitens is a former Democrat.

Length of prison term Drug Companies Nervous as Doctors and Patients for ex-oicer questioned ADVERTISEMENT

Demand the AloeCure® Big Pharma execs stand to lose billions as doctors and their patients abandon drugs like Nexium® and Prilosec®. Drug free remedy could put Big Pharma out of the digestion business. By David Waxman Seattle Washington: Drug company execs are nervous. That’s because the greatest health advance in decades has hit the streets. And analysts expect it to put a huge crimp in “Big Pharma” profits. So what’s all the fuss about? It’s about a new ingredient that’s changing the lives of millions who use it. Some doctors call it “the greatest discovery since penicillin”! And their patients call it “a miracle!” The name of the product is the AloeCure. And since it’s completely drug-free; the product is available to anyone who wants it, no prescription necessary.

TOP DOC WARNS: DIGESTION DRUGS CAN CRIPPLE YOU! Company spokesperson, Dr. Liza Leal; a leading integrative health specialist out of Texas recommends taking AloeCure before she prescribes any digestion drug. Especially after the FDA’s stern warning about longterm use of drugs like Prilosec®, Nexium®, and Prevacid®. In a nutshell, the FDA statement warned people should avoid taking digestion drugs for longer than 14-days; you risk spine and hip damage. Most people take them for decades.” Dr. Leal should know. Many patients come to her with bone and joint complaints and she does everything she can to help them. One way for digestion sufferers to help avoid possible risk of tragic joint and bone problems caused by overuse of digestion drugs; is to take the AloeCure.

Analysts expect the AloeCure to put a huge crimp in “Big Pharma” profits. The secret to the AloeCure’s “health adjusting” formula is aloe vera. But not the same aloe vera that mom used to apply to your cuts, scrapes and bruises. This revolutionary strain of aloe is grown in special Asian soil; under very strict conditions. And despite its surprisingly pleasant taste, the AloeCure is so powerful it begins to benefit your health the instant you take it. It soothes intestinal discomfort and avoids the possibility of bone and health damage caused by overuse of digestion drugs. Much like aloe works externally on cuts, bruises, burns and abrasions. Studies show aloe has dozens of health applications…

HELPS CALM DOWN PAINFUL INFLAMMATION According to a leading aloe research scientist, the amazing plant compounds in Aloe have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect. Inflammation is your body’s first reaction to damage. So whether it’s damage that is physical, bacterial, chemical or auto-immune; the natural plant compounds in aloe helps soothe inflammation— rapidly reducing redness, heat and swelling .

RAPID ACID AND HEARTBURN FIX At first, Aloe proved to have an astonishing effect on users who suffer with digestion problems like occasional acid reflux, heartburn, cramping, gas and constipation. But new studies prove it does a whole lot more.

SIDE-STEP HEART CONCERNS So you've been taking proton pump inhibitors for years and you feel just fine. A 2015 medical study showed long-term use of digestion meds may be a leading cause of heart damage. Getting off those meds and taking the AloeCure daily, helps you support a healthy heart.

UNLEASH YOUR MEMORY Think about it. If you kept dumping fat and grease down your

Drug companies are understandably upset since AloeCure delivers quicker and better health benefits.

drain; how long do you think it would take to clog it up? The answer is, not very long at all. And that’s exactly what happens to your brain every time you eat processed, fried or fatty foods. Studies show that your brain needs the healthy bacteria from your gut in order function at its best. Both low and high dosages of digestion drugs are proven to destroy that healthy bacteria and get in the way of brain function. So you’re left with a sluggish, slow-to-react brain without a lot of room to store information. AloeCure’s special formulation actually makes your gut healthier; so healthy bacteria flows freely to your brain so you think better, faster and with a larger capacity for memory.

DOCTOR’S EVERYWHERE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THE ALOECURE: "My first experience recommending AloeCure was of a 46 year patient who developed a stomach ulcer due to stress. I suggested that he take AloeCure and the worst was over within 3 days. To my colleagues, if you’re not using AloeCure, you really need to. To all patients there is powerful help available, find a practitioner who knows of AloeCure. Dr. Rick Marschall, Port Angeles, WA*

SLEEP LIKE A BABY A night without sleep really damages your body. And continued lost sleep can lead to all sorts of health problems. But what you may not realize is the reason why you’re not sleeping. Some call it “Ghost Reflux”. A low-intensity form of acid reflux discomfort that quietly keeps you awake in the background. Taking AloeCure will help you sleep more soundly and comfortably through the night.

CELEBRITY HAIR, SKIN & NAILS One of the Best-Kept Secrets in Hollywood. Pills like Nexium and Prevacid greatly reduce your body’s ability to absorb calcium. Aloe neutralizes the pH levels in your blood so your body can absorb massive amounts of calcium. The result? Thicker, healthier looking hair… more youthful looking skin… And nails so strong they may never break again.

Doctors call it “The greatest health discovery in decades!” SAVE YOUR KIDNEY National and local news outlets are reporting Kidney Failure linked to PPI’s. Your Kidney extracts waste from blood, balance body fluids, form urine, and aid in other important functions of the body. Without it your body would be overrun by deadly toxins. Aloe helps your kidney function properly. Studies suggest, if you started taking aloe today; you’d see a big difference in the way you feel.

Truth about brutality could add years to his sentence BY ROBERT PATRICK st. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • While it is clear that former city police detective Thomas A. Carroll is going to prison for beating a handcufed man who had Carroll’s daughter’s credit card, a courtroom battle began Tuesday on how long the term will be. Carroll had pleaded guilty of depriving Michael Waller of his civil rights. Carroll He admits throwing Waller into a wall and punching him, but denies ramming a pistol into the man’s mouth or causing serious injuries. The sentencing hearing in federal court here will continue Wednesday, starting with testimony Waller from a city prosecutor, Ambry Schuessler. She was granted immunity last week after indicating that she would refuse to testify, to avoid incriminating herself, court documents show. Carroll was enraged because someone broke into his daughter’s car and stole her purse days before her wedding. Waller was caught using her credit card but denied breaking into the car. Exactly what Carroll did to Waller could make the diference of years in prison, under federal guidelines. Waller claims Carroll chipped his teeth and bloodied his lip with a gun, badly bruised his ribs and may have caused a concussion. Carroll’s attorney, Neil Bruntrager, has suggested his client should face 15 to 21 months, not the 70 to 87 months sought by prosecutors. In the hearing before U.S. District Judge

Henry Autrey, Bruntrager attacked inconsistencies in Waller’s statements and brought up a criminal record that includes assault, domestic violence and stealing convictions. Carroll’s good friend, former St. Louis prosecutor Bliss Barber Worrell, testified in a broken voice, sometimes choking back tears, that he told her about the attack multiple times and had described putting his gun in Waller’s mouth. She said Schuessler heard Carroll’s explanation over the phone. Worrell has pleaded guilty of misprision (concealment) of a felony, admitting she helped a novice prosecutor file a bogus charge against Waller, and failed to tell supervisors and a judge the truth. Her sentencing is pending. Former prosecutor Katherine Dierdorf resigned after the incident, along with Worrell. Dierdorf has not been charged. Her lawyer, Jef Jensen, has said she had not been aware of the charges filed against Waller and assisted in the investigation. In documents, prosecutors accuse Carroll of a pattern of “questionable behavior.” They say he allowed Worrell to chase a suspect, with a Taser, in one incident, and to seize drugs in another. They also say that in phone calls from jail, Carroll blamed supervisors for failing to keep him away from Waller, and prosecutors for failing to charge Waller in “some past, unknown crime, thereby ensuring his incarceration so (Waller) would not have been out of custody for the defendant to assault.” They also say that Carroll has threatened to assault Assistant U.S. Attorney Fara Gold, although they acknowledged that that could be “hyperbolic.” Worrell said Carroll had a reputation for exaggeration.

LAW & ORDER JEFFERSON COUNTY > Pedestrian is killed on I-55 • A pedestrian, Kerensa L. Scanlon, 31, of Pevely, was fatally struck by a tractortrailer on Interstate 55 here about 11:30 p.m. Monday, the Missouri Highway Patrol said.

He pleaded guilty in April of sex traicking of a minor and of interstate commerce to promote illegal activities. A federal grand jury indicted him in January. He admitted working as a pimp for the girl beginning in summer 2014. He also recruited ive adult women, advertised for prostitution over the internet and arranged travel and accommodations for a cut of the prostitutes’ fees. CLAYTON > Higher bail sought in shooting of oicer • Prosecutors planned to argue Wednesday in St. Louis County Circuit Court that the $500,000 bail should be increased for Antonio Taylor, 31, accused of a shooting that paralyzed a Ballwin police oicer on July 8. Taylor is charged with irst-degree assault of a law enforcement oicer, armed criminal action and unlawful Antonio possession of a weapon.

St. Louis ordered to pay $1.5 million Judges rules city is responsible for damages done by its public servants BY NASSIM BENCHAABANE The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A federal judge ordered the city of St. Louis to pay nearly $1.5 million in damages Tuesday to a man from St. Louis for a false arrest made by a city police oicer in 2002. The ruling could end a four-year legal battle in which Michael J. Banks and his attorney Bob Herman sought damages from the city and the Board of Police Commissioners over the false arrest. Banks alleged that he was punched and robbed of $1,100 by then-city Oicer Reginald A. Williams during a traffic stop. He was later acquitted of the only charge that arose from the stop, illegal use of a weapon. Williams himself was later accused in federal court of robbing drug dealers and falsifying arrests, with Banks among those who testified against him. He was convicted of obstruction of justice and making false statements, and sentenced to 6½ years in prison.

self-incrimination in refusing to respond to questions. That prompted Assistant Circuit Attorney Cynthia Copeland to demand his testimony under immunity. The immunity does not protect Bianchi from charges of perjury if he is found to lie or give misleading statements under oath. It remained unclear whether things he says under immunity from state prosecution might still be used against him in a federal court. Bianchi’s attorney, Jim Towey, said Tuesday his client plans to cooperate with the order, but that his story won’t difer from the original statements he made to the FBI and U.S. attorney’s oice — that Smith pointed a gun at him and his partner before being killed. Towey said Bianchi “fully cooperated” with federal investigators during the original investigation. The lawyer said he had advised Bianchi not to testify before a grand jury earlier this month because Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce said her office had “new evidence” in the

Michael Banks (left) and his estranged wife, Antonia Banks, in their attorney’s oice in 2012, discuss the $1.5 million judgment against St. Louis.

Banks alleged that the arrest left his life in tatters and sued Williams for unconstitutional search and seizure, false arrest, theft of the $1,100 and loss of consortium. In 2009, he, his wife and his lawyers won a judgment for nearly $1.5 million. Williams had resigned from the department before the judgment was granted and was presumably in no position to pay the damages. Herman filed a separate suit ask-

ing for a court order to force the Police Board and city to pay. District Court Judge Richard Webber ruled Tuesday that the judgment against Williams was also a judgment against the board and city. Webber said a prior U.S. Supreme Court decision established that a public entity is liable for a judgment against one of its public servants in his or her oicial capacity.

case, but not revealed what. He said he had then told Bianchi, “If they want you, they can give you immunity.” Bianchi has not been accused of any crime in the incident. He did not fire at Smith but has said he yelled “Gun!” to Stockley in an encounter they had with Smith before the chase. Stockley quit the department in 2013 and moved to Houston; Bianchi remains on the force. Stockley, now 35, was charged May 16 with first-degree murder in the killing of Smith on Dec. 20, 2011. He is at liberty on $100,000 bail. The incident started, police said, when the oicers saw Smith, 24, in a suspected drug deal on the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant. Smith maneuvered away in his car, leading a pursuit. After a crash, Stockley confronted Smith, who was shot to death while sitting in the driver’s seat of his car. Stockley has said he fired in self-defense. Court documents say Stockley’s DNA was on a gun recovered from Smith’s car and that Stockley was heard saying to Bianchi, presumably on audio from the dashboard cam-

era during the chase, that he was going to kill Smith. Towey, who represents Bianchi and Offciers Michael Anderson, Colin Rumpsa, William Clinton and Denise Johnson, is seeking to quash a June 24 grand jury subpoena for any written or recorded statements they made to criminal or internal affairs investigators related to Smith’s killing. The motion argues that all statements to internal afairs investigators are closed under Garrity v. New Jersey, a U.S. Supreme Court case. That decision held that while oicers could lose their jobs for refusing to answer questions for an internal investigation, their answers were still protected against use in a criminal prosecution by their Fifth Amendment rights. A hearing on the motion is set for 4 p.m. Aug. 3 in front of Judge Michael K. Mullen. Christine Byers of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

The Jeferson County prosecuting attorney won’t be pressing charges against Dianne Critchlow, the former superintendent of the Fox School District who a state audit found misused hundreds of thousands of district dollars for personal use. Forrest K. Wegge, the county’s prosecuting attorney, issued a statement earlier this month that said his office would turn the matter over to federal investigators because “it has become clear that Missouri criminal statutes are insufficient to accomplish the level of accountability the taxpayers of Fox C-6 deserve.” In May, Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway released a report that revealed Critchlow racked up about $100,000 in questionable expenses on three school district credit cards for things such as iTunes gift cards, shampoo, watches, wedding gifts and a garlic press over two years ending in 2014. She manipulated her own salary without board approval, the audit states, by drawing up contract adjustments and signing them with the board’s electronic signature to net about $20,000 over two years beyond what the Fox School Board had agreed to pay her. And Critchlow “double dipped,” the report continues, by requesting and receiving reimbursement for some of the personal purchases made on the district credit cards — essentially paying herself with district money for the goods she was getting for free. Critchlow’s attorney, Brandy Barth, criticized

the audit as “a onesided and biased account filled with inacc u ra c i e s, Critchlow half information and misleading statements.” Galloway’s oice turned over the findings to Wegge’s office. A six-week criminal investigation by the Jeferson County Sherif’s Oice, in collaboration with the FBI, followed. “After discussions with the United States Attorney’s Office, this matter is being referred to their office for potential federal prosecution,” Wegge’s statement says. “As the criminal investigation continues, this office will also continue to work closely with law enforcement and stay in communication with the United States Attorney’s Oice to ensure that any individuals better suited for State prosecution are brought to justice in Jefferson County.” Wegge said he would not comment further because of the continuing investigation. Renee Rueter, who leads the Jeferson County Council, requested weeks ago that Wegge release the findings of his review. Parents and district staff are still angry, hurt and frustrated by Critchlow’s actions, she said. She added that she’s hopeful Critchlow will be held accountable. “This was a huge betrayal of trust,” Reuter said. “It’s going to take a while to rebuild it. My hope is that we get something more useful out of the U.S. Attorney’s Oice.” Elisa Crouch • 314-340-8119 @elisacrouch on Twitter ecrouch@post-dispatch.com

Islamic State followers kill priest in France, are shot dead

“Just when I thought I was going to need back surgery, I found out about Renuva. After working in nursing for 40 years, I tried pain injections for a year and it did an OK job masking the pain. Renuva found the cause of my pain. This is the best thing that has happened to me to relieve pain without surgery.” -Debra D.

S A I N T- E T I E N N E - D U ROUVRAY, FRANCE •

The Islamic State crossed a new threshold Tuesday in its war against the West, as two of its followers targeted a church in Normandy, slitting the throat of an elderly priest celebrating Mass and using hostages as human shields before being shot by police. It was the extremist group’s first attack against a church in the West and fulfills long-standing threats against “crusaders” in what the militants paint as a centuries-old battle for power. One of the attackers, who grew up in the town, had tried twice to leave for Syria; the second was not identified. “To attack a church, to kill a priest, is to profane the republic,” French President Francois Hollande told the nation after speaking with Pope Francis, who condemned the killing in the strongest terms. T h e Rev. Ja c q u e s Hamel, 85, was celebrating Mass for three nuns and two parishioners on a quiet summer morning in Saint-Etienne-duRouvray when the attackers burst in and forced the priest to his knees before slicing his throat, according to authorities and a nun who escaped. She described seeing the attackers film themselves and give a sermon in Arabic around the altar before she fled. Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said the other hostages were used as human shields to block police from entering. One elderly parishioner was wounded. The two attackers were killed by police as they rushed from the building shouting “Allahu Akbar,” Molins said. One had three knives and a fake explosives belt; the other carried a kitchen timer wrapped in aluminum foil and had fake explosives in his backpack. One of the assailants was identified as Adel Kermiche, 19, who tried to travel to Syria twice last year using family members’ identity documents but was arrested out-

side France and handed preliminary terrorism charges. Kermiche had an electronic surveillance bracelet after a judge overruled prosecutors and agreed to free him, Molins said. A statement published by the Islamic State-ailiated Amaq news agency said Tuesday’s attack had been carried out by “two soldiers of the Islamic State” who acted in response to calls to target nations in the U.S.-led coalition fighting the extremist group in Iraq and Syria.

TURNING POINT Haras Rafiq, managing director of the Quilliam Foundation, described the attack as a turning point. “What these two people today have done is ... shifted the tactical attack to the attack on Rome ... an attack on Christianity,”

One person, a minor, was arrested in the investigation. Molins said he was believed to be the 16-year-old younger brother of someone wanted by authorities for trying to go to Syria or Iraq in 2015. Hollande, visiting the scene of Tuesday’s slaying, denounced what he called “a vile terrorist attack” and one more sign that France is at war with Islamic State, which has claimed multiple attacks on France over the past year and a half and two in Germany over the past week. The pope condemned the attack in the strongest terms. The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said in a statement that Pope Francis expressed his “pain and horror for this absurd violence, with the strongest condemnation for every form of hatred and prayer for those afected.” The town’s mayor, Hubert Wulfranc, in tears, denounced the “ barbarism” and, breaking down, pleaded, “Let us together be the last to cry.” The violence, currently pivoting between France and Germany, appears unlikely to slow soon because Islamic State reaps benefits even when attackers have no connection to extremists fighting and losing territory in Iraq and Syria. The attack renewed fear of social and religious tension in France. Support is rising for the antiimmigrant far right, and the country’s millions of moderate Muslims fear a backlash. France’s security services are stretched after eight months under a state of emergency imposed after attacks in November in Paris. They’ve been under new strain since an attack in the southern city of Nice on Bastille Day — July 14 — that killed 84 people.

The slain priest had been at the church for the past decade and “was always ready to help,” Rouen diocese oicial Philippe Maheut said. “His desire was to spread a message for which he consecrated his life,” Mahut said. “And he certainly didn’t think that consecrating his life would mean for him to die while celebrating Mass, which is a message of love.” A nun who escaped said the priest was forced to the ground before his

he said. He warned that it could “radicalize people from both sides of the communities. Muslim and non-Muslim.” As Europe becomes painfully inured to a summer of repeated bloodshed, the extremists are looking for greater ways to shock, Rafiq said. “This is going into a house of God. This is attacking and killing a priest.” “We’ve been talking about the danger of the global jihadist insurgency. This is what it looks like,” he said. The increasing speed with which IS has claimed responsibility and the growing number of attacks this summer have left Europe alarmed and fearful. Targeting a church in the rural Normandy heartland resonated with France’s leadership and Christians across Europe. Though France is oicially secular and church attendance is low, the country has deep Catholic roots. Islamic State extremists have urged followers to attack French churches.

Sanders supporters hit streets to protest Bernie Sanders loyalists protested inside and outside the Democratic National Convention site and clashed with police on Tuesday after Hillary Clinton won the party’s presidential nomination. Despite Sanders’ calls for them to support Clinton, thousands of activists have taken to the streets during the convention this week to voice support for the liberal Vermont U.S. senator and his progressive agenda. Moments after Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party, a group of Sanders delegates and supporters exited the Philadelphia convention site to hold a sit-in inside a media tent. Some had their mouths taped shut. In the streets outside, Sanders supporters who had spent the day protesting began facing of with police. Protesters began scaling 8-foot walls blocking of the secure zone around the arena parking lot, and several were detained.

Supporters of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders march Monday during a protest in downtown Philadelphia on the first day of the Democratic National Convention. The protesters were angered by documents leaked from the Democratic National Committee.

BY RAPHAEL SATTER Associated Press

PARIS • Experts who have fol-

lowed the leak of Democratic National Committee documents say they believe the party’s claim that Moscow had a hand in the hacking, lending weight to the extraordinary allegation that the Kremlin is trying to tamper with the U.S. presidential contest. “You’re left with all the signs pointing to Moscow,” said Matt Tait, a U.K.-based cybersecurity consultant who has put in roughly 20 hours combing through the leaked DNC documents. Tait and others invoke several categories of evidence. The first was provided by threat intelligence firm CrowdStrike, an Irvine, Calif., company hired by the Democrats to clean out the party’s network. It delivered a report last month identifying Russia’s intelligence services as being behind two separate electronic break-ins at the DNC. The second category of evidence was provided by electronic fingerprints on some of the documents suggesting the files had been run through Russian language-configured machines. Most convincing for Tait was evidence that the internet infra-

structure tied the DNC hackers to a separate campaign that targeted Germany’s parliament last year. In May, Germany’s domestic intelligence chief took the unusual step of publicly blaming that attack on Moscow, saying the Kremlin wasn’t just spying — it was gearing up for sabotage. “More than anything else I think (that) really puts to rest the ‘Who is this?’” Tait said Tuesday. “It’s one thing to say that they were typing stuff in Russian or they were coming from a Russian IP (internet protocol) address or their systems were configured in Russian. It’s another thing to say this was being run by the same servers being publicly attributed by German intelligence as being Russian.” Hillary Clinton’s campaign, citing CrowdStrike, blamed Russia for hacking the party’s computers and suggested the goal was to benefit Donald Trump’s campaign. On Twitter, Trump dismissed that idea. A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin called the allegation “paranoid” on Tuesday. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who began publishing thousands of the emails last week, said Monday that there was “no proof” Russia was behind the hacking.

On Tuesday, leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee pressed the FBI and Justice Department for details on the investigation, including how and when federal investigators learned of the breach and what action is being taken. Assigning blame in the world of cyberespionage is extraordinarily diicult. Some clues uncovered by Tait are easy to forge, and attackers use misdirection to lead investigators astray. Others in the field are wary of companies such as CrowdStrike, which may face pressure from clients or investors to spin gripping stories about government hackers with code names such as “Fancy Bear” or “APT28.” “I don’t like circumstantial evidence when it comes to blaming a foreign government,” said Jefrey Carr, chief executive of Taia Global, a threat intelligence company. Carr rejected the idea of tying the DNC attackers to previous breaches based on tools or their methods, saying it was “like finding a gun that was used in the commission of a crime. Anybody could be pulling the trigger.” So far the only public claim of responsibility for the breach has come from a previously unknown actor calling himself Guccifer 2.0. The self-described

Romanian hacker has uploaded several batches of DNC material to a website in the past month. Guccifer 2.0 has not responded to repeated messages from The Associated Press, but doubts about his story are growing. On Tuesday, ThreatConnect, an intelligence firm based in Arlington, Va., said it found evidence that the hacker was communicating with journalists via a virtual private network based out of Russia. Motherboard journalist Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai said the hacker stumbled through an interview over Twitter when quizzed in Romanian last month. Thomas Rid, a cybersecurity expert with King’s College London, first identified the common infrastructure linking the DNC and German parliamentary hackings. He said that there was a “very high level of confidence” both attacks were the work of the same group and that German oicials had tied the group to Moscow. “Traditionally Germany’s intelligence has a very good coverage of Russia,” Rid said. “When they come out and explicitly name a Russian military intelligence service — and they do that at significant political cost — then we just have to take that very seriously.”

Fury from Sanders backers threatens chaos AMANDA KELLEY

PHILADELPHIA • It’s been

logistical chaos trying to get around town during the first two days of the convention. The streets of this old city are narrow anyway, and with the massive crowds and continuing protests by Bernie Sanders supporters, convention buses and cabs have had trouble moving around the Wells Fargo convention center. It took us two hours Monday to traverse the six miles from our hotel. Of course, there has been plenty of political chaos as well, though there’s a feeling there

that that situation is getting better now. The overriding issue on the convention floor during the day Monday was the Sanders supporters’ fury at the DNC and Hillary Clinton. If you’ve been watching the news coverage, you know that Sanders himself got booed by his own supporters at one point on Monday while calling for unity. On the convention floor, the Sanders supporters were altering the pro-unity signs that were being handed out, to make them pro-Bernie signs. Some of them put tape over their mouths for the television cameras, to illustrate their allegation that the party is trying to silence them. There are quite a few people who are still really hurting. “Our credibility as a move-

ment will be damaged by booing, turning of backs, walking out or other similar displays,” Sanders wrote in an email to his supporters on the floor, appealing for unity. “That’s what the corporate media wants. That’s what Donald Trump wants. But that’s not what will expand the progressive movement in this country.” Those of us (like me) who are Clinton delegates are trying to keep lines of communications open. Of course, Clinton was in exactly Sanders’ situation eight years ago. This is how democracy works. The speeches Monday night helped, especially Michelle Obama’s speech praising Clinton. It felt like a turning point to a lot of people. We got a surprise at our daily

Missouri delegation breakfast meeting Tuesday morning: Sanders himself stopped in to talk to us. He spoke for a few minutes about unity and some of the other points from his speech the night before. He was well received all around. Everyone wanted pictures with him. At this writing, we’re bracing for Tuesday night’s floor vote on the nomination. Most agree it’s a good thing that Sanders’ supporters will be able to cast their votes for him, instead of having Clinton nominated by acclamation, but the potential for more conflict is certainly there. We’ll see. Missouri delegate Amanda Kelley of St. Charles is sharing her thoughts from the floor of the Democratic National Convention this week. She is a St. Charles County Democratic committeewoman.

Clinton steps into history

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLINTON • FROM A1

Trump, who won the Republican nomination a week ago. Trump, who campaigned Tuesday in North Carolina, mocked the former president’s speech in advance, calling him “overrated.” Referring to Trump, though not by name, Bill Clinton said that there were real and afordable solutions to problems facing the nation but that “we won’t get to them if America makes the wrong choice.” The former president traced his relationship with his wife back more than 40 years, recalling in great detail the first time he spotted her on campus and the impact she had on pushing him into politics. “Hillary opened my eyes to a whole new world of public service by private citizens,” he said, addressing a convention hall packed to the rafters with delegates listening raptly. He closed the second night of the Democratic convention, a jubilant celebration of Hillary Clinton’s formal nomination for

president. In an important move for party unity, her primary rival Bernie Sanders helped make it official when the roll call got to his home state of Vermont, prompting delegates to erupt in cheers. It was a striking parallel to the role Hillary Clinton played eight years ago when she stepped to the microphone on the convention floor in Denver in support of her former rival, Barack Obama. This time, Hillary Clinton shattered the glass ceiling she couldn’t crack in 2008. She leads a party still grappling with divisions. Moments after she claimed the nomination, a group of Sanders supporters left the convention and headed to a media tent to protest what they said was their being shut out of the party. At the same time, protesters who had spent the day marching in the hot sun began facing of with police. Trump cheered the disruptions from the campaign trail. In North Carolina, he told a convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars that “our politicians

have totally failed you.” Indeed, Hillary Clinton’s long political résumé — secretary of state, senator, first lady — has sometimes seemed an odd fit for an electorate frustrated with Washington and eager to rally around unconventional candidates such as Trump and Sanders. Many voters have questions about her character and trustworthiness, suggesting her years in power give her the impression she can play by diferent rules. Bill Clinton spoke after three hours of testimonials from lawmakers, advocates, celebrities and other citizens who argued otherwise. Each took the stage to vouch for Hillary Clinton’s commitment to working on health care, children’s issues and gun control. “Hillary Clinton has the passion and understanding to support grieving mothers,” said Sybrina Fulton, whose son Trayvon Martin was killed in 2012. “She has the courage to lead the fight for commonsense gun legislation.” The significant time devoted

to the character testimonials underscored the campaign’s concern about how voters view her. Public polls consistently show that a majority of Americans don’t believe she is honest and trustworthy. That perception was reinforced after the FBI director’s scathing assessment of her controversial email use as secretary of state, even though the Justice Department did not pursue charges. Former President Clinton complicated the email controversy last month when he met privately with Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the midst of the FBI investigation. Republicans cast the meeting as a sign that the Clintons play by diferent rules, while Democrats bemoaned that at the very least, it left that impression. The former president has campaigned frequently for his wife during the White House race, but mostly in smaller cities and towns, part of an effort by the campaign to keep him in a more behind-the-scenes role. His convention address was his

highest-profile appearance of the campaign. Hillary Clinton’s achievement saturated the roll call with emotion and symbols of women’s long struggle to break through political barriers. Jerry Emmett, a 102-year-old woman born before women had the right to vote, cast the ballots for Arizona. Martha McKenna, a Clinton delegate from Maryland, said the night felt like a celebration for Sanders’ campaign as well as the nominee’s. She added, “The idea that I’m going to be here when the first woman president is nominated is overwhelming.” The Democratic convention drew the party’s biggest stars to Philadelphia for the weeklong event. On Monday night, first lady Michelle Obama made an impassioned case for Hillary Clinton as the only candidate worthy of being a role model for the nation’s children. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will speak Wednesday, along with Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, Clinton’s running mate.

Lezley McSpadden, the mother of slain Ferguson teen Michael Brown, appeared at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday as part of the group “Mothers of the Movement” — women who have lost their children in encounters with police or to gun violence. McSpadden didn’t speak, but other women in the group did, including Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teen shot to death in a 2012 encounter with neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman. “Hillary Clinton has the compassion and understanding to comfort a grieving mother; she has the courage to lead the fight for commonsense gun legislation,” Fulton said. “And she has a plan to repair the divide that so often exists between law enforcement and the communities they serve. “This isn’t about being politically correct. It’s about protecting our children.” The mothers fanned out across the stage, and at one point McSpadden appeared to wipe a tear from her eye. Their inclusion, without a presence of relatives of fallen police oicers,upset local and national police groups. Brown was killed by a police officer in Ferguson in 2014. A St. Louis County grand jury declined to indict Oicer Darren Wilson in the shooting, and an investigation by the federal Justice Department concluded that Wilson fatally shot Brown while reasonably fearing for his own life. The women spoke after former Attor-

ney General Eric Holder, whose Justice Department cleared Wilson of civil rights violations. The Justice Department later forced a consent decree McSpadden on the city of Ferguson aimed at improving the city’s police department and courts. “There should be no tension between protecting those who valiantly risk their lives to serve and ensuring that everyone is treated fairly by police,” said Holder, the brother of a retired police oicer. After a panel discussion in St. Louis last Wednesday, McSpadden said the group would stop talking about gun violence when it stopped happening. Police organizations criticized convention organizers for shunning families of police oicers killed in the line of duty. “We were hoping that Hillary Clinton could be as good for law enforcement as Bill Clinton, but we’ve now seen that’s not the case,” said Jef Roorda, business manager for the St. Louis Police Oicers’ Association and St. Louis County Police Association. “This is such a big wedge issue and the Democratic Party is on the wrong side of that issue.” Missouri Fraternal Order of Police president and Lee’s Summit police Sgt. Rick Inglima said the announcement that McSpadden would appear made police “very concerned” and they “hope this is not going to perpetuate a message of hate that we’ve seen so often by some of the current movements. “We certainly wish there was a place on the DNC stage for the families of the police oicers who died doing what they loved, protecting their communities,” he said.

Michelle Obama proves she can win voters, but she’ll do it only for others ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHILADELPHIA • Sorry, Democrats.

#ElectMichelle will never be more than a wishful hashtag. The same thing that made Michelle Obama such a powerful voice for Hillary Clinton at the Democratic convention makes it unlikely she’ll spend a huge amount of time on the campaign trail or, heaven forbid, run for president: She’s just not a political animal. That’s sorry news to delegates who were moved to tears by the first lady’s speech at the convention Monday night, where she delivered a compelling argument for Clinton’s election from the perspective of Sasha and Malia’s mother, and also managed to skewer Donald Trump without uttering his name. Democrats were still enthusing over Obama’s speech the next day — and hoping the first lady’s message would help win over those who have yet to commit to Clinton. “Imagine yourself being a Bernie-orbust person listening to that,” said Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., a prominent Bernie Sanders supporter during the primaries. “You’ve gotta kind of say, ‘Well, I guess Michelle has an important point to make here.’ This is how we get to unity.” Before the first lady’s speech, New York’s Daily News tweeted out its planned front page, focused on Clinton-Sanders discord. Three hours later, the paper tweeted: “Stop the Presses! New front … THE LADY IS HER CHAMP. @Flotus speech brings down the house.” Creative twittering commenced, involving the hashtags #ElectMichelle, #FLOTUSforPOTUS and #Obama2020.

Martha McKenna, a former political director for Senate Democrats, said it looked as if Obama was having fun on the stage, “so I’m hopeful that that’s a sign that means that she’s going to keep doing it.” Yes, and no. Although Obama is expected to campaign for Clinton, the White House has not set expectations high for a rigorous pace. The first lady said early on in her husband’s tenure, “Politics is important … but it’s not who I am and it’s never been a goal of mine.” She has strict rules about how much time she spends on the road, sets her schedule well in advance and sticks to it. Aside from her convention appearance, Obama has barely engaged in the 2016 campaign and has resisted positioning herself as a distinct political figure. She was notably silent when Clinton clinched the nomination, letting the historic moment pass without comment. When her husband endorsed Clinton, the first lady’s oice said the president’s words stood for her, too. The two women share bonds forged in the elite membership of the first ladies’ club, and Obama made a number of appearances with Clinton during her time as secretary of state. Tina Tchen, Obama’s chief of staff, said the two had a “very warm relationship.” But there is little evidence of a close friendship. A Gallup survey this month found Obama favorably regarded by 58 percent of Americans, with especially high favorability numbers among younger voters, nonwhites and women. As for talk of political aspirations for the first lady herself, her husband has a big bucket of cold water at the ready. The president told a town hall earlier this year: “There are three things that are certain in life: death, taxes and Michelle is not running for president.”

Clinton steps into history

CLINTON • FROM A1

added, “She’s been worth every single year she’s put into making people’s lives better.” For a man more accustomed to delivering policy-packed speeches, Bill Clinton’s heartfelt address underscored the historic night for Democrats and for the nation. If she wins in November, the Clintons would also be the first married couple to each serve as president. She will take on Donald Trump, who won the Republican nomination a week ago. Trump, who campaigned Tuesday in North Carolina, mocked the former president’s speech in advance, calling him “over-rated.” At Trump’s convention last week, Hillary Clinton was the target of blistering criticism of her character and judgment, a sharp contrast to the warm and passionate woman described by her husband. Seeking to explain the vastly diferent perceptions of his wife, Bill Clinton said simply, “One is real, the other is made up.”

The former president took voters back to a time before an affair with an intern led to his impeachment — and to intense public scrutiny of the first couple’s marriage. Though her aides believe his past transgressions are old news to voters, they have flared up anew at times during the campaign, with Trump often leading the charge. Bill Clinton headlined the second night of the Democratic convention, a jubilant celebration of her formal nomination for president. In an important move for party unity, her primary rival Bernie Sanders helped make it official when the roll call got to his home state of Vermont, prompting delegates to erupt in cheers. It was a striking parallel to the role Hillary Clinton played eight years ago when she stepped to the microphone in Denver in support of her former rival, Barack Obama. This time, she shattered the glass ceiling she couldn’t crack in 2008. She leads a party grappling with divisions. Moments after

Hillary Clinton claimed the nomination, a group of Sanders supporters left the convention and headed to a media tent to protest what they said was their being shut out of the party. At the same time, protesters who had spent the day marching in the hot sun began facing of with police. Trump cheered the disruptions from the campaign trail. In North Carolina, he told a convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars that “our politicians have totally failed you.” Indeed, Hillary Clinton’s long political resume — secretary of state, senator, first lady — has sometimes seemed an odd fit for an electorate deeply frustrated with Washington and eager to rally around unconventional candidates such as Trump and Sanders. Many voters have questions about her character and trustworthiness. Bill Clinton spoke after three hours of testimonials from lawmakers, advocates, celebrities and other citizens who argued otherwise. Each took the stage to vouch for her commitment

to working on health care, children’s issues and gun control. “Hillary Clinton has the passion and understanding to support grieving mothers,” said Sybrina Fulton, whose son Trayvon Martin was killed in 2012. “She has the courage to lead the fight for commonsense gun legislation.” The significant time devoted to the testimonials underscored the campaign’s concern about how voters view Hillary Clinton. Public polls consistently show that a majority of Americans don’t believe she is honest and trustworthy. That perception was reinforced after the FBI director’s scathing assessment of her controversial email use as secretary of state, even though the Justice Department did not pursue charges. Former President Clinton complicated the email controversy last month when he met privately with Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the midst of the FBI investigation. Republicans cast the meeting as a sign that the Clintons play by difer-

ent rules, while Democrats bemoaned that at the very least, it left that impression. The former president has campaigned frequently for his wife during the White House race, but mostly in smaller cities and towns, part of an effort by the campaign to keep him in a more behind-the-scenes role. His convention address was his highest profile appearance of the campaign. Hillary Clinton’s landmark achievement saturated the roll call with emotion and symbols of women’s long struggle to break through political barriers. Jerry Emmett, a 102-year-old woman born before women had the right to vote, cast the ballots for Arizona. The Democratic convention drew the party’s biggest stars to Philadelphia. On Monday night, first lady Michelle Obama made an impassioned case for Clinton. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will speak Wednesday, along with Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, Clinton’s running mate.

McSpadden appears, but he irst lady for president? doesn’t speak at convention ‘It’s not who I am,’ she says Police groups unhappy that families of fallen oicers weren’t invited BY CHUCK RAASCH AND CHRISTINE BYERS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Loop Trolley testing is set here will also be ‘public outreach and education’ sessions By LeaH THORSen St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Testing is slated to begin early this fall on the Loop Trolley, which is expected to open to passengers in the spring. Trolley leaders hope to start checking the trolley cars and system in September, the group said in a news release Tuesday. Before that happens, there will be a “period of public outreach and education” for those who travel along the trolley route to understand how it works. In the Loop, the trolley will share Delmar Boulevard with cars, similar to a bus, pulling out of traic at designated stops. It will run on a single track in the center median east of the Pageant on Delmar and will head south onto DeBaliviere Avenue, continuing on a single track on the east side within a new greenway. It will stop and reverse direction at the Missouri History Museum. Two green vintage trolley cars from Seattle were shipped into St. Louis in June for the trolley, and three more are slated to arrive from Seattle and Portland,

AB InBev ups SABMiller ofer amid Brexit aSSOCIaTed PReSS

LOndOn • Anheuser-Busch InBev raised its cash offer for SABMiller to 45 pounds per share to blunt a revolt by investors who had seen the relative value of their payout plummet as the pound declined after Britain’s vote to leave the European Union. A-B InBev sweetened its bid on Tuesday by one pound a share to appease smaller investors who complained that they were now receiving less for their shares than SABMiller’s two biggest shareholders, who were ofered a cash-and-share deal. The new ofer values the transaction at 79 billion pounds, or

Centene braces for $300 million loss

about $103.6 billion. The ofer had dropped to about $100 billion after the Brexit vote. SABMiller’s board in November accepted, in principle, a merger that seeks strength in size, combining the world’s two largest brewers into a company that would control nearly a third of the global market. But A-B InBev shares, which are denominated in euros, have risen 3.2 percent since then and the pound plunged against the European currency after the referendum on Britain’s exit from the EU. That reduced the value of the cash offer compared with the cash-and-stock option tailored for U.S. tobacco company Altria and BevCo, an

investment vehicle of the Santo Domingo family, which together own about 40 percent of SABMiller and wanted to remain shareholders of the new company. Aberdeen Asset Management, whose stake in SABMiller is in excess of 1 percent, on Tuesday made plain its unhappiness with both the new cash offer and the overall situation. The offer undervalues SABMiller and favors the company’s two biggest shareholders, the firm said. “The revised deal remains unacceptable,” it said in a statement.

Centene Corp. has earmarked $300 million to cover potential losses from business the company picked up in its $6 billion acquisition of Health Net Inc. last year, company oicials said Tuesday. During the company’s secondquarter conference call Tuesday morning, executives disclosed that they had discovered $300 million in “premium deficiency reserves,” or an estimate of a potential loss, mainly due to the increased use of substance abuse treatment centers in California and unfavorable results in the company’s individual commercial business in Arizona. Shares of the Clayton-based managed care company fell on the news, and the company experienced its largest intra-day loss in four years, according to Reuters. Shares closed at $68.87, down 8.5 percent. The company now says it’s looking to reduce its “exposure” in Arizona’s individual market because problems there account for a large portion of the potential $300 million loss. The Arizona Republic has reported Health Net will drop plans next year that currently cover 14,000 members. Centene said it had already taken steps to improve performance in both Arizona and California. Centene is contesting some of the claims submitted by these substance abuse treatment centers in California, alleging that “there’s been significant fraud and abuse,” Michael Neidorff, president and CEO of Centene said. His organization and the state of California are investigating those claims, Neidorf said. The issue is in litigation, which precluded Neidorf from disclosing much else other than the fact that they’ve made changes to coverage and benefits that the company expects will help stem losses. Company oicials stressed that

the issues would not continue into 2017, as much of the problems predate March 24. A coalition of at least 118 California treatment centers said Health Net began a blanket audit of treatment centers across the state as opposed to investigating “bad actors.” In a letter dated May 16 to the California Department of Managed Healthcare, the providers say the audit places them in “financial jeopardy.” The majority say payments are suspended while the audit is underway. The Addiction Treatment Advocacy Coalition, which represents numerous California treatment facilities, alleges in the letter that Centene’s Health Net subsidiary is in violation of the state law as they deny coverage. Centene reported a betterthan-expected quarterly profit as the health insurer benefited from lower medical costs and an increase in Medicare and commercial customers from its acquisition of rival Health Net. Centene said commercial membership rose more than eight times and Medicare and dual plan membership jumped nearly 11 times in the second quarter from a year earlier. Also Tuesday, Neidorff said Centene did not plan to acquire any Medicare Advantage plans from insurers looking to shed business to seek clearance for acquisitions. The company also raised its full-year earnings forecast range to $2.65-$3.00 per share from $2.45-$2.80. Net earnings from continuing operations attributable to shareholders rose about 93 percent to $170 million, or 98 cents per share, in the quarter ended June 30, from a year earlier. Adjusted, the company earned $1.29 per share, beating the average analyst estimate of $1.09, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. The company’s revenue nearly doubled to $10.90 billion. Analysts on average had expected $10.79 billion.

Nidec said to be leading bidder for Emerson unit • Japan’s Nidec Corp. is the leading bidder for Ferguson-based Emerson’s motors and drives unit in a sale that may fetch about $1 billion, Reuters reported Tuesday, citing sources. A winner for the auction may be announced this week. Emerson declined to comment. New-home sales rose in June • The Commerce Department said Tuesday that new-home sales rose 3.5 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted rate of 592,000, the best level since February 2008. June’s median sales price rose 6.1 percent from a year ago to $306,700. Just 4.9 months’ supply of new homes is listed for sale, well below this historic average of six months. Panera beats expectations • Panera Bread Co. reported on Tuesday second-quarter sales at established restaurants that just topped Wall Street’s target, bucking the trend of softening U.S. demand during the period and sending shares up almost 4 percent in extended trading. Sales at company-owned outlets open more than a year were up 4.2 percent in the second quarter, edging out the 4.1 percent increase analysts had expected, according to Consensus Metrix. The Sunset Hills-based chain operates locally as St. Louis Bread Co. LMI COO resigns • LMI Aerospace chief operating oicer Joe DeMartino has resigned from the St. Charles-based manufacturer of aircraft parts.

Downtown YMCA to move east to MX entertainment district BY SINTIA RADU st. Louis Post-dispatch

After 90 years on the western side of downtown St. Louis, the YMCA at 1528 Locust Street will move 10 blocks east to the MX entertainment district. Plans call for the Y to relocate in January to the ground-floor of the MX building at Sixth and Locust streets. The currently vacant, 15,050-square-foot space will get fitness equipment, steam rooms, private showers and a hot yoga studio, plus an area for outdoor classes and gatherings. Tim Helm, president and chief executive of the Gateway Re-

gion YMCA, said Tuesday the Y is leaving 1528 Locust because of deferred maintenance problems and other issues in space the organization has occupied since 1926. The downtown Y, which has about 1,400 members. The facility has the first three floors of a 10-story building, which is vacant and has separate ownership. “The building we’re currently in is too large of a space for our membership size,” Helm said. “This moves us into a smaller space that is more appropriately sized for the number of members we have.” Racquetball courts and a

swimming pool are among the features at the current facility that won’t be available at the new MX Y. YMCA operations at 1528 Locust will continue until the move. Parking at the new Y will be available on the street and in two nearby garages, Helm said. Gateway Region Y has 24 branches. The Y had two downtown facilties until the Marquette Y, at 314 North Broadway, closed in 2012. Tim Bryant of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this story.

Amid U.S. inquiries, Fiat Chrysler is revising method for computing sales BY TOM KRISHER associated Press

DETROIT • Fiat Chrysler has revised more than five years of U.S. sales figures and says a muchtouted streak of 75 months of gains should have ended in 2013. The company, in a lengthy statement issued Tuesday, said it would change the way it reports monthly sales retroactively to the start of 2011. The move comes as the Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission investigate whether the company inflated sales by pressing dealers to buy more vehicles. Neither Justice nor the SEC would comment Tuesday. Higher monthly sales could influence the company’s stock price, although Fiat Chrysler said in the statement that its quarterly revenue figures would not change. A chart issued by the company shows that it overstated sales for 30 months since January 2011, while understating the numbers

for 36 months. Using the new reporting method, the company’s string of 75 monthly year-overyear increases actually ended in September 2013 at 40 months. The net effect of the revisions is that the company actually understated its sales by nearly 19,000 vehicles during the past 5½ years, Fiat Chrysler said. The company blamed the discrepancy on two sales-counting practices that it says will be stopped: • Previously the company had a “reserve” stock of cars that had been shipped to big fleet buyers such as rental car companies but not recorded as sales. Managers had the ability to move those sales from one month to the next to make sure the company reported positive sales numbers. “Fleet sales will now be recorded as sales upon shipment by FCA US of the vehicle to the customer,” the company statement said. • Dealers sign paperwork to sell a vehicle and then report it as a

sale to Fiat Chrysler. But the sale might fall through because the customer backs out or can’t get financing. Previously FCA still counted these as sales, but made sure it didn’t count the same vehicle when it was sold later. Now the company will subtract sales “unwinds” when it finds out the deal has fallen through. When the vehicle is sold again, it will be counted as a sale. There are no clear reporting standards for monthly sales, and criteria for a sale vary by automaker. But industry insiders say the numbers are often manipulated by both dealers and the companies. The federal investigation into Fiat Chrysler’s sales began after a Chicago-area dealership group sued the company in January alleging that competing dealers got incentives to report false sales. FCA has said the lawsuit is without merit and has pledged to defend itself.

A12 • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

Union rights lead election issues Unions, which have historically favored Democrats, have provided about $188,000 of Zerr’s fundraising totals since the start of last year. Eigel’s biggest single money source has been David Humphreys, a Joplin roofing products executive and major right-towork supporter, who gave $150,000. The Missouri Club for Growth PAC, a pro-rightto-work group largely funded by St. Louis investor Rex Sinquefield, kicked in $75,000. Another big contribution, $100,000, came from Herzog Contracting Corp. of St. Joseph, a longtime donor to conservative causes. Zerr, 61, a House member the past eight years, says opposition to rightto-work, along with her anti-abortion and pro-gun rights record, best fits the district. “We’re pro-life, progun, pro-union, by and large,” she said, referring to herself and voters. Zerr also emphasizes her experience in the Legislature and previous work as an aide to then-County Executive Joe Ortwerth; executive director of a St. Charles County booster group, Partners for Progress; and other public policy posts. In addition to labor money, she’s gotten donations from various business groups. Eigel, 38, who owns a skylight company, is campaigning as a political outsider. He said even though the GOP already has big majorities in the Legislature, some Republican lawmakers such as Zerr don’t always back what he considers bedrock party principles. “When you have been in politics so long you start losing the perspective of what everyday folks are going through,” Eigel said of Zerr. Eigel shares Zerr’s support for abortion restrictions and gun rights. Meanwhile, Carter, 44, alleges that Zerr and Eigel are each beholden to their respective political donors. “They’re on what I’m calling campaign welfare,” he said. That’s not the case with him, he asserts, because he’s paying for his campaign himself. Right-to-work legislation would prohibit employment contracts from requiring union membership or dues. Supporters say passage would boost the Missouri economy by attracting new business, while opponents say it would drive down wages and hurt the middle class. Carter, a former Democrat, says he supports a modified version of rightto-work allowing employees to decide periodically for themselves how much to give to the union at their company. The Republican-controlled Legislature passed right-to-work last year but it was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon. Zerr and a handful of other prolabor Republicans joined with Democrats to defeat a veto override efort in the House. The Senate seat had been held by Republican Tom Dempsey of St. Charles, a term-limited opponent of right-to-work who resigned last year. One big unknown in Tuesday’s race is how suc-

STATE SENATE CANDIDATES, 23RD DISTRICT REPUBLICANS

BILL EIGEL: Age: 38 Home: Weldon Spring Owns skylight company ANNE ZERR: Age: 61 Home: St. Charles State representative MICHAEL CARTER: Age: 44 Home: O’Fallon Attorney, Wentzville municipal judge DEMOCRATS

RICHARD ORR: Age: 65 Home: St. Charles County Buyer for sporting goods store GREG UPCHURCH: Age: 47 Home: St. Charles County Owns banquet hall

cessful unions will be in convincing some members who typically vote Democratic to cross party lines to help Zerr in the GOP primary. The role of lobbyists in Jeferson City also has been an issue. Eigel cites state records showing meals, travel and other gratuities worth $6,313 accepted by Zerr were the most among House members last year. He says he’d push to enact a ban on lobbyist gifts and promises he wouldn’t accept any even if they remain legal. So does Carter. Zerr says she’s never been influenced by lobbyist gifts but would support a bill to prohibit them. “To reduce even the perception of impropriety,” she also says she won’t accept any if elected to the Senate. Meanwhile, a Zerr TV ad alleges that Eigel is the “hand-picked candidate of the lobbyist cartel.” Among other things, the ad notes that Eigel’s campaign treasurer, former state Rep. Carl Bearden, is a lobbyist. Zerr and Eigel ads have each bashed the other candidate as a “liberal,” apparently the epithet of choice in GOP circles in the conservative county. A Zerr commercial also complains that Eigel is “bankrolled by supporters of both Common Core and a sales tax” — a reference to Eigel’s donations from the Sinquefield-funded Missouri Club for Growth. The sales tax mention is a nod to Sinquefield’s support for eliminating the state income tax and replacing it with a higher sales tax on a broader base. Club for Growth officials insist that the group never supported Common Core, a title given to student learning and testing standards developed by the National Governors Association. Asked about the reference, Zerr cited Sinquefield’s backing for a separate 2014 proposal to weaken teacher tenure and tie teacher evaluations to student performance. Critics said that would have led to additional standardized testing. For his part, Eigel says he opposes Common Core and any sales tax increase. Another flashpoint is transportation. Eigel blasts Zerr for voting in 2014 to put a sales tax hike for state road funding on the ballot; the measure failed at the polls. She says voters made the decision. As for the future, Eigel opposes tax increases and toll roads to deal with the state Transportation Department’s financial woes. Instead he says more funding for state highways could be freed up by turning over more than 15,000

miles of county roads to local governments. Zerr says a blend of different approaches should be considered, such as a “user fee on gasoline” and creating optional toll lanes on some highways. She said she’d support either only if Missourians got to vote on them. Carter opposes a gas tax hike and toll roads. To deter abuse of painkiller drugs, Zerr supports ending Missouri’s status as the only state that hasn’t established a statewide prescription monitoring program. Eigel and Carter oppose the measure, expressing concerns about sharing personal data with national databases. The two Democrats in the race are both first-time candidates. Orr, 65, a buyer for a sporting goods store, and Upchurch, 47, who owns a banquet hall, both oppose right-to-work and support Medicaid expansion. Orr added that he’s running partly because of his concern about what he said were GOP attacks in Jeferson City on environmental regulations and state parks and conservation programs. Finance reports show Orr has raised less than $3,000. No report for Upchurch was available on the state website but he said his fundraising has been minimal. That’s in contrast to Eigel’s fundraising total of more than $590,000, Zerr’s more than $550,000 and Carter’s $100,000. Meanwhile, other committees have run commercials or sent mailings aimed at helping or hurting Zerr. Walker Moskop of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

Favored incumbents still raise $1 million each INCUMBENTS • FROM A1

It’s both symptomatic of, and instrumental in, the culture of incumbency that has made a vast majority of congressional elections in the United States virtual walkovers this year. All eight members of the U.S. House for Missouri are heavily favored for reelection this year, yet five of the eight have raised more than $1 million with three lucrative months to go. Several have campaign accounts much larger than that, money that could be significant if one of the six Republicans in the delegation emerges as a challenger to Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., in 2018. McCaskill spent $21.6 million to get re-elected in 2012. Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, who faces in Democratic state Sen. Bill Otto potentially the toughest general election challenger in November, has raised more than $1.75 million during this election cycle and had more than $2.4 million in her campaign accounts as of July 13, according to the Federal Election Commission. Otto has raised $273,000 and showed just over $83,000 in the bank as of midJuly. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-St. Elizabeth, has raised over $1.5 million and had $1.9 million in the bank. His closest money contender, Constitutional Party candidate Doanita Simmons, had raised $1,662 and had $897 left as of July 13. Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis, has outraised his Democratic primary opponent, state Sen. Maria ChappelleNadal, by more than 7-1, and has more than $400,000 in the bank, compared with about $27,000 for ChappelleNadal. The lopsidedness spans the state. Rep. Sam Graves, R-Tarkio, who flirted with running for the Senate in 2012, has raised nearly $1.2 million and had $878,000 in the bank on July 13. Democrat challenger Travis Gonzalez has raised $221 and spent nothing. Rep. Jason Smith, R-Cape Girardeau, has raised almost $1.3 million. Two Republican primary opponents, Hal Brown and Todd Mahn, have taken in less than

$50,000 between them. Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Harrisonville, in mid-July had an almost 100-1 cash advantage over top Democratic challenger Gordon Christensen and outraised him $716,000 to roughly $130,000 And in Kansas City, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, a Democrat, has raised $736,000 to the $1,350 recorded by Republican challenger Michael Burris. Why continuously raise money and press even greater financial advantages? A Long spokesman described it as part of the job, and said the fact that he is the only member of the Missouri delegation to serve on the Energy and Commerce committee makes him, in some respects, a statewide figure on key issues for Missouri. “People just appreciate the member of Congress that he is,” said Royce Reding, a campaign spokesman for Long. “Just the work that he is doing on the committee that he represents – just a lot of people who want to support him and look forward to supporting him,” Reding said. Mary Byrne, co-founder of the Missouri Coalition Against Common Core, is one of seven Republicans challenging Long next week. She has raised less than $25,000 and had $1,528 in her campaign accounts on July 13. She says that while Long has flooded the southwestern Missouri district with campaign ads, billboards and roadside signs, she and volunteers have gone door-to-door, and believes that can win her the nomination Tuesday. The anti-Washington sentiment is palpable, she said, and she portrayed Long’s Las Vegas fundraiser as symptomatic of why that is so. “He is supposed to represent them in Washington,” Byrne said. “What the consensus is that he is representing Washington to us.” She added: “He is capitulating to the high rollers who congregate in Vegas.” Chuck Raasch • 202-298-6880 @craasch on Twitter craasch@post-dispatch.com

TOKYO • The killing of 19 people at a home for the mentally disabled raised questions about whether Japan’s reputation as one of the safest countries in the world is creating a false sense of security. The deadliest mass killing in Japan in the post-World War II era unfolded early Tuesday in Sagamihara, a city 30 miles west of central Tokyo, when authorities say a former employee broke into the facility and stabbed more than 40 people before calmly turning himself in to police. The suspect, identified as Satoshi Uematsu, 26, had worked at the facility from 2014 until February, when he was let go. He wrote to Parliament outlining the plan and saying all disabled should be put to death. While not immune to violent crime, Japan has a relatively low homicide rate of well under one per 100,000 people. Mass killings usually are seen half a world away on the nightly news, although seven Japanese were among the dead in a recent hostage-taking in Bangladesh that targeted non-Muslims. Because such massacres are rare, Japan has become overconfident about its safety, a Japanese criminologist said. For crime prevention, the country relies on its social system, in which a group mentality sacrifices individual freedom for collective safety, said Nobuo Komiya, a criminology professor at Rissho University in Tokyo. As a result, it has neglected risk management, he said. “Japan has put an emphasis on not creating criminals, but it is reaching a breaking point,” Komiya said. “Like in foreign countries, I think institutions

DIGEST U.N. extends mission in Central African Republic The U.N. Security Council is calling on the Central African Republic’s president to urgently promote reconciliation between Muslims and Christians and reunify the country that has been plagued by sectarian violence. In a resolution adopted by the council on Tuesday, the U.N. extended its peacekeeping mission in the troubled country until Nov. 15, 2017. The council reauthorized the force at its current strength of nearly 11,000 peacekeepers with an immediate priority to protect civilians. The council expressed support for President Faustin Archange Touadera, who was inaugurated on March 30. Rebels overthrew CAR’s president in 2013 and sectarian violence followed.

need to develop a plan in operational management and prepare for a worst-case scenario, given that criminals are inevitably born.” Mass killings have happened in Japan from time to time. In 2001, a man with a history of mental illness killed eight children in a knife attack at an elementary school in Osaka. The attack prompted increased security measures for schools. In 2008, a man rammed a rented truck into a crowd of shoppers at a busy Tokyo intersection, then jumped out and began stabbing people, killing seven. Japan has strict gun laws that might lessen violent crime, but they can’t stamp it out. TV news regularly reports on murders — a jilted lover, an adult son angry at his parents — and the most common weapon is a kitchen knife. A Justice Ministry study in 2013 found that knives were used in slightly more than half the murder cases in a given year, with kitchen knives accounting for more than a third of all cases. National Police Agency statistics show there have been no more than 10 shooting deaths annually in Japan in recent years, a number that dropped to just one case in 2015. The comfort level is high enough in Japan that it is com-

mon practice for first-grade students to go to and from school on their own, after parents accompany them for the first month or so, even in a major city such as Tokyo. Children are kidnapped from time to time. Another factor contributing to Japan’s sense of safety, Komiya said, is the fact that the island country has never been invaded. Tuesday’s attack prompted at least two major newspapers to publish “extra” editions that were handed out at train stations as details emerged. All 19 dead were among the approximately 150 residents or shortterm residents at the Tsukui Yamayuri-en home for the mentally disabled. Of the nine workers who were at the facility, two were injured but none died. The attack shocked neighbors in the hilly, semi-rural community in Sagamihara. “I will be more careful about locking the door and windows, at least on the first floor,” said Reiko Kishi, 80, a neighbor who worked at the home for more than 30 years. It’s a lesson that perhaps more of Japan should heed. Takeshi Koyanagi, a professor at the International Victimology Institute at Tokiwa University in Mito, warned of potential copycat attacks.

2 die in explosion in Azerbaijan • Azerbaijan’s Interior Ministry says two people have died in an explosion at a defense plant. There was no indication of the cause of the Tuesday afternoon blast at the plant in Shirvan, 60 miles southwest of Azerbaijan’s capital Baku. A statement from the Defense Industry Ministry, which manages the plant, said two plant workers died, but there were no further details. Earlier, a spokeswoman for the national health ministry, Lia Bairamova, said 20 people with various injuries had been taken to a hospital. Al-Shabab targets U.N. oice in Somalia • Two suicide bombers detonated explosives-laden cars Tuesday outside the oice of the U.N.’s mine-clearing agency and a Somali army checkpoint in Mogadishu, killing 13 people, including seven guards, Somali police oicials said. The blasts occurred near the Mogadishu airport, Somali police chief Gen. Mohamed Sheikh Hassan said. Somalia’s Islamic extremist rebels, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility, according to the group’s Andalus radio station. The deputy spokesman for the U.N. secretary-general, Farhan Haq, told reporters that if the guards had not stopped the car from entering the U.N. premises, there “would have been considerably more damage and loss of life.”

Religious procession marred by threats, violence • Authorities in Ukraine’s capital say pilgrims in a major religious procession connected with a Moscow-loyal church will be taken to their goal by bus, a compromise reached after participants in the procession were barred from entering Kiev on foot. The foot procession was halted in the city’s outskirts on Tuesday after Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said grenades had been planted along the route. Ukrainian nationalists had blocked the procession on Monday, pelting them with eggs and calling them “agents of Moscow.” The Orthodox Christian faithful in Ukraine are divided between one church that comes under the Moscow Patriarchate and a splinter church under a Ukrainian leader. The religious procession is by adherents of the Moscow church. The marches are in honor of the holiday marking the adoption of Christianity by what is now Russia and Ukraine in the 10th century. Anthrax hits nomadic herders • Russian authorities are evacuating nomadic reindeer herders and quarantining part of a Siberian region after an outbreak of anthrax killed more than 1,000 of their animals. The appearance of the bacterial disease in the Yamalo-Nenets region is the irst fatal anthrax outbreak in Russia in 75 years. The governor’s oice for the region, which is 1,200 miles northeast of Moscow, said 13 people have been hospitalized for the disease and 63 people have been potentially afected. Gunmen surrender in police station standof • A spokesman for Armenia’s police says two gunmen who have been holding a police station in the capital for more than a week have surrendered after an exchange of gunire. Police spokesman Ashot Arahonyan says that the gunire began before dawn on Wednesday. He said one police oicer and two gunmen were wounded. Two other gunmen surrendered, he said. A group of gunmen seized the post in Yerevan on July 17, demanding freedom for an opposition igure. One policeman was killed in that seizure and the gunmen held oicers hostage for several days. The last four hostages were released Saturday. From news services

CONSPIRACY THEORY Our view • Whose interests are served by outing clerical abuse victims?

yOUR VIEWs • LETTERs FROM OUR REadERs Trump co-opts the left’s usual hyperbole ASSOCIATED PRESS

Pope Francis said “God weeps” at the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests.

“God weeps,” Pope Francis said during his visit to Philadelphia last September. The topic was the church’s sad response to the sexual abuse of children by priests.“I commit to the careful oversight to ensure that youth are protected.” Some careful oversight should be directed to the U.S. District Court in St. Louis. There a priest charged in 2014 with the sexual abuse of a minor has gone on a fishing expedition. To try to prove that Father Xiu Hui “Joseph” Jiang is a victim of an elaborate conspiracy, his lawyers are seeking emails that could identify victims in unrelated cases. The lawsuit was filed against the city and two city police officers who investigated the claims of a boy who said Jiang had abused him on two occasions in 2011 and 2012. Jiang was charged in April 2014 with two counts of statutory sodomy, but 14 months later, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce dismissed the charges without explanation. She said her “office remains hopeful that charges will be refiled in the future.” Jiang filed his lawsuit shortly after the charges were dismissed. Also named in the lawsuit were the boy’s parents; the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests; and two of SNAP’s local officers, David Clohessy and Barbara Doris. Because the city is a defendant, the suit was filed in federal court. That’s where things get tricky. A state court ruled in a different case

that SNAP may qualify as a rape crisis center and is entitled under state law to keep certain communications with its clients private. But federal evidence rules are different. U.S. District Judge Carol E. Jackson ordered SNAP to disclose records about the boy’s claims against Jiang as well as emails between SNAP and attorney Ken Chackes, who frequently represents clerical abuse victims. Jiang’s attorneys want to know how much money Chackes has donated to SNAP over the years, suggesting that SNAP is steering clients to him. Oddly, Jiang didn’t sue Chackes. If he’s getting rich suing the church, you’d think he’d be part of the alleged conspiracy. The problem, SNAP says, is that those emails include the names of victims not associated with the Jiang case. Three of them filed a motion Friday asking Jackson to keep their identities secret. Jiang, who came to St. Louis with his mentor, Archbishop Robert Carlson, in 2009, had well-publicized issues with a teenage girl in Lincoln County 2012. That case was dropped, too. In the current suit, he is being represented by religious liberty activist D. John Sauer, not archdiocesan lawyers. But Carlson remains Jiang’s boss. He can put his friend first, or he can consider whether the pope’s pledge to ensure the protection of children would be served by outing victims and harassing their advocates.

Regarding Dana Milbank’s column “Morning in America it wasn’t” (July 24): I opened to the commentary page of the Post-Dispatch on Sunday and the following caught my eye: “Violence in our streets ... Chaos in our communities ... We don’t have much time ... Disasters unfolding ... In ruins ... Poverty and violence at home, war and destruction abroad.” I couldn’t help but think, another leftist diatribe about fill-in-the-blank crisis, i.e. global warming, drilling an oil well in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, completing the Keystone pipeline or reforming entitlements. Then I noticed Milbank was quoting Donald Trump’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. If the left was sore about the plagiarism in Melania Trump’s speech, they must really be angry at Donald Trump’s level of plagiarism in co-opting their usual hyperbolic phrases.

Republicans continue trying to blame Clinton The spectacle of Republican delegates screaming like a lynch mob for Hillary Clinton to be executed or jailed says a great deal about the crowd at the convention but nothing at all about Clinton. Republicans in Congress carried out a witch hunt for months in a desperate attempt to pin the blame for Benghazi on Clinton. A House Select Committee and congressional committees investigated the tragedy, grilling Clinton relentlessly. Three bipartisan reports failed to find her culpable. This partisan crusade to try to gain political points from the tragedy cost taxpayers millions. The same is true of her emails. The FBI investigated for months and was unable to find any chargeable ofense. Do Republican operatives have information that the FBI hasn’t seen, and if so, why haven’t they shared it? Yet facts do not prevent Republicans from continuing to accuse her, obviously on the advertising principle that people will believe anything that is repeated constantly. It is despicable that they exploited a grief-stricken family member to manipulate the crowd into a frenzy. Donald Trump has no standing to call other people liars. Jane Klopfenstein • Edwardsville

By backing Clinton, Democrats show they have no principles I find it interesting that several highprofile Republicans have refused to endorse Donald Trump based on their principles. On the Democratic side, they have nominated a candidate who has lied to the public and has used her office to enrich herself. Yet, I have heard of no high-profile Democrats refusing to endorse. I guess they have no principles. Alan Kuhn • Florissant

Little diference between what Ivanka Trump, Cruz said In Ivanka Trump’s introduction of her father at the final evening of the convention, she stated: “Like many of my fellow millennials, I do not consider myself categorically Republican or Democrat. More than party affiliation, I vote based on what I believe is right for my family and my country. Sometimes it’s a tough choice. That is not the case this time.” Sounds to me like she is saying the same thing Sen. Ted Cruz did: Vote your conscience. So then why the flap over Cruz? Pat Donnelli • Wentzville

Electoral College can prevent us from choosing a charlatan When we cast our ballots in November, we are not voting directly for president. We are actually voting for electors who will then select the next leader. These electors are not necessarily required to vote based on the outcome of the popular vote. The Founding Fathers did this out of fear that we might someday choose a charlatan. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist Papers, “The immediate election should be made by men most capable of analyzing the qualifications adapted to the station and acting under circumstances favorable to deliberation.” Hamilton went on to write, “the process of election afords a moral certainty that the oice of president will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.” Anyone come to mind? The Founding Fathers were afraid that the American people might elect a candidate who was unfit for the presidency. As I follow the 2016 election, I understand their concern and appreciate the extra layer of protection. John Wade • Wildwood

Hazelwood district needs more concerned parents The editorial board should have talked to a few people before writing about the Hazelwood School District (“Under new micromanagement,” July 21). We had students in the district for years. The district has a history of nondisclosure to the parents, and a history of ignoring the teachers, who have a much better idea of what is happening in the district than any of the administrators. The editorial mentioned the problems with getting a stable administration. I hope you are aware who hires the administrators. What the district needs is more concerned parents like the parents shown in the picture. Far too many parents don’t take the time to know what the board does and who the board members are. And even fewer talk to the members about the needs of the district. There is very little accountability. Nancy Vigland • Hazelwood Read more letters online at STLtoday.com/letters

Missouri should follow Texas’ example on taxes State’s economy • Income tax rates are so high that they impede Missouri’s prosperity. BY ARTHUR B. LAFFER AND REX SINQUEFIELD

No one who loves Missouri should ever revel in the fact that the Show-Me State’s growth is “lousy,” its tax rates are high and state and local tax revenues aren’t growing enough to “cover inflation” (editorial “Bad news is good news if tax cuts get reversed,” July 6). Even allowing for the rhetorical excesses of political debate, surely Gov. Jay Nixon went too far when he described a phased-in 10 percent cut in all income tax rates for millions of individuals as an “all-out attack on public education.” No one who voted to override Gov. Nixon’s veto is an “enemy of education.” In fact, the

position that income tax rates are so high in Missouri they impede the state’s prosperity and its ability to generate tax revenues is quite reasonable. And yes, that the high income tax rates even hold back Missouri’s ability to provide high-quality K-12 education. Missouri has been on a downward slide for a long time. Since 1977, Missouri’s output has grown by less than 600 percent (No. 40 out of 50 states) while the average U.S. state grew 770 percent. Not yet in the abysmal ranks of states like Michigan, West Virginia, Ohio, Iowa, Illinois or Pennsylvania, Missouri can and should do a lot better. Texas, for example, grew over 1,150 percent in this same period (fifth fastest). The truth is that Missouri is

not an especially high tax state as measured by overall tax burden, although state and local taxes as a share of output have been rising relative to other states. Missouri’s problem is how it collects taxes. High income tax rates are the problem. A classic symptom of Missouri’s dysfunctional tax structure is the fact that Missouri’s labor force productivity is way below the U.S. average and is continuing to decline. Texas, for example, has no income tax. Texas is also at the very bottom of the state and local taxes ranking as a share of output. Texas is also a high and rising productivity state. And yet, given the fact that Texas is about the lowest tax state in the nation with no income tax, Texas still has more

full-time-equivalent education employees per 1,000 population than does Missouri (32.4 versus 28.3) and its students do as well as Missouri’s students, according to the U.S. Department of Education’s NAEP scores for reading and math in fourth and eighth grade. And even though Texas has more education employees per 1,000 population than Missouri, it pays its education employees a lot more than does Missouri ($46,000 per year versus $42,000 per year). Go figure! And lastly, since 1977 all tax revenues in the state of Texas have grown the fourth fastest in the nation (1,100 percent) while Missouri’s total tax revenues are the 37th fastest growing in the nation (600 percent). Both Texas and

Missouri have sound budgets and AAA credit ratings. Putting all of this together, just maybe Missouri should try to be a little more like Texas and a little less like Missouri. Since 1997, according to IRS tax returns, more taxable income has moved into Texas every single year and out of Missouri. People are voting with their feet. You won’t find Texans complaining about prosperity, tax revenue growth, education funding or the fact that there’s no personal income tax. Missouri can do better by its taxpayers, and Texas can show it the way. Arthur B. Lafer is founder and chairman of Lafer Associates.

Republicans have ceded the ground on faith Politics • Trump ignores the themes that often inform public rhetoric. MICHAEL GERSON Washington Post

Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., march Monday during a protest in downtown Philadelphia on the first day of the Democratic National Convention.

CLINTON LEAVES PARTY’S LIBERAL WING HIGH AND DRY Politics • Democratic Party gives short shrift to progressive wing and appeals to the center. DANA MILBANK Washington Post

PHILADELPHIA • As protests go,

this one was a doobie. Democrats gathering here to nominate Hillary Clinton for the presidency had some company: hundreds of Bernie Sanders supporters marching through town, escorted by a 50-foot dirigible in the form of a reefer. “Berned by the DNC” was the, er, joint declaration printed on the balloon’s side. The Bernie backers have reason to be fuming. Their man lost a hard-fought race. But on Monday, they let the fire engulf them — and not even Sanders himself could escape the blaze. “We have got to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine,” Sanders told his delegates Monday afternoon. Incredibly, they began to boo and jeer. The movement leader, no longer controlling his followers, raised his hand for quiet. “Brothers and sisters!” he urged. “This is the real world that we live in. Trump is a bully and a demagogue.” The shouts and jeers continued, followed by a chant of “We want Bernie!” It was just the opening to the Democratic convention that Donald Trump would have wanted. And the Bernie Bros — and a few sisters — weren’t done. They took their hooliganism to the convention floor at the Wells Fargo Center. They booed Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire when she mentioned Clinton. They did the same to AFL-CIO chief Richard Trumka and Adriano Espaillat, who hopes to be the first former

undocumented immigrant to win a seat in Congress. They booed Ben Jealous, former NAACP head and a Sanders supporter, when he said it was time to elect Clinton. They booed Rep. Marcia Fudge of Ohio when she reminded them that “we are all Democrats,” just as they had booed House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi earlier in the day. They even booed when the Rev. Cynthia Hale, giving the opening benediction, mentioned Clinton’s name. For a time, they booed most every mention of Clinton’s name. They chanted “Bernie! Bernie!” and even reprised the Republicans’ cheer: “Lock her up!” Outside, they blocked the main road to the convention site and blocked buses carrying delegates — relenting only when thunderstorms and flooding washed them out. That the Sanders supporters were frustrated is understandable. Clinton and the Democratic Party have given the progressive wing of the party short shrift in favor of an appeal to the political center. Sanders and his supporters were tucked into Monday night’s programming, where they shared billing with first lady Michelle Obama and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. The staging sent a clear message: The Sanders people would have their say — and then the convention, and the campaign, would move on. Of more consequence, Clinton, after securing Sanders’ endorsement, chose as her running mate Virginian Tim Kaine, who has a centrist reputation and has been a free-trader. Then there was the leak of Democratic National Committee emails, which proved what Sanders had long alleged: The party was working to help Clinton defeat him. Committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was ousted

after the email revelations, but Clinton promptly named her an “honorary chair” of her campaign. From a strategic perspective, this is probably a mistake. Clinton’s playing down of the progressives in Philadelphia comes from a belief that she can do better among the non-college-educated whites who have been the core of Trump’s support. But her deficit among noncollege-educated white voters, about 30 points, isn’t much worse than President Obama and John Kerry did. Rather than making overtures to the shrinking ranks of blue-collar white voters (just over 30 percent of the electorate, down from half in the 1980s) who aren’t likely to be persuaded, Clinton could have used her vice presidential selection and her convention to boost enthusiasm among progressives. But no slight by Clinton or the DNC justifies the display Sanders supporters put on Monday. After the initial outbursts on the floor, Sanders, who would close the night with a generous attempt at unity, pleaded during the afternoon with his supporters by text and email to desist. “Our credibility as a movement will be damaged,” he cautioned, and, “I ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest on the floor.” The Sanders hooligans backed off — a bit. But when comedian Sarah Silverman, a Sanders backer, came out to urge support for Clinton, there were more boos and chants of “Bernie! Bernie!” “You’re being ridiculous,” Silverman told them. Only the soothing tones of Paul Simon seemed to calm the hall. The singer’s selection for the DNC: “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” Dana Milbank dana.milbank@washpost.com Copyright The Washington Post

With Thomas Hobbes now firmly in charge of Republican messaging — the world is a dark, Darwinian bloodbath, unless we turn over power to a strong ruler who will protect us — Hillary Clinton has a number of rhetorical and ideological gaps she could fill in Philadelphia. She might, for example, use some self-effacing humor, in contrast to Donald Trump’s thin-skinned egotism. She could tell some stories of immigrant contribution and success, rather than stories about immigrants murdering children. She might try a little aspiration, a little magnanimity, a little confidence in the American spirit — all on extended vacation in Trump’s GOP. And she could talk about the way religious values should inform our public life — a task that the Republican Party has largely abandoned. It is, perhaps, to Trump’s credit that in Cleveland he did not pretend to beliefs he does not possess. But his convention speech was almost entirely secular. Faithbased supporters were only mentioned as another interest group at the long trough of his promises. Larger religious themes that often inform American public rhetoric — human dignity, social justice, the possibility of redemption — were absent. This is one reason many of us found the GOP convention so disorienting and disturbing. Trump has cut the party off from its religious, ethical and moral moorings. He appeals almost exclusively to anger at perceived wrongs and to feelings of economic distress. This may be Trump’s best political strategy. For him to win in November, he must turn out millions of secular, blue-collar, economic populists — the type of voters Ross Perot once motivated — who have never participated in politics before. Trump’s appeal to anger against immigration, trade, multiculturalism and political correctness is well suited to his target audience. Will this result in an anti-establishment wave election that overwhelms the votes of minorities and the college educated? That is the defining political question of 2016. But Trump’s approach does leave Democrats with an opening on religion. Clinton’s choice of Tim Kaine as her running mate is effective counterprogramming. Republican senators I talked with describe Kaine as “very bright,” “genuinely nice,” and “unfailingly courteous and positive.” But he is also known as “faith-oriented” and a “deeply spiritual guy.” Kaine is not only fluent in Spanish; he speaks the language of Catholic social thought,in the dialect of Pope Francis. There is reason to think that Catholics — who often have a positive view

And it is not just Latino Catholics who have found Trump’s message off-putting. “The Republican Party has left me by embracing Donald Trump,” says George Weigel, a leading Catholic conservative, “a man utterly unfit by experience, intellect, or character to be president of the United States.” Weigel will not end up supporting Clinton, but other Catholics might, especially if she can find some comfortable religious language, emerging from her United Methodist tradition. “This does matter to her,” says a longtime associate. “But it is a root canal for her to talk about it.” Clinton has a number of pressing problems that her Philadelphia convention speech must address. Her reputation for honesty and trustworthiness is in tatters. Her appeal to younger voters is often lame and feeble. She is poor at communicating her passions, her core. But at least some of these challenges would be addressed if she and her speechwriters find a way to talk about the Christian (and broadly religious) ideal of the common good. This principle is found at the intersection of Protestant mainline teaching on social justice, of Catholic social thought and of the African-American civil rights tradition. “We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality,” said Martin Luther King Jr. “Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. ... This is the way God’s universe is made.” It is hard for me to read those words without being moved and saddened, since the GOP nominee for president has so intentionally abandoned the ideals behind them. It is one of the great tragedies of 2016 — and perhaps an opportunity for Clinton — that Republicans have ceded the ground of faith without a fight.

Beyoncé and Adele are the top nominees for the MTV Video Music Awards, where their music videos will compete against Kanye West’s “Famous” for video of the year. “Famous,” Beyonce’s “Formation” and Adele’s “Hello” will battle Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” and Drake’s “Hotline Bling” for the top prize when the VMAs air live Aug. 28 from New York’s Madison Square Garden. The nominations were announced Tuesday. West’s “Famous” features what appears to be naked images of the rapper and other celebrities, including Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump and Bill Cosby. The song is at the center of his current war with Swift: Kardashian recently leaked audio of Swift’s giving West her blessing after he told her of the lyric “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.” But Swift later said she was upset because West did not play her the entire track or tell her the full lyric. Beyonce is the VMA leader with 11 nominations; she released her Emmynominated “Lemonade” visual album this year. Adele has eight nominations. They will compete for best female video along with Rihanna, Sia and Ariana Grande. David Bowie, who died from cancer this year, is nominated for best direction, cinematography, art direction and editing for “Lazarus.” Others who earned multiple nominations include Coldplay, Desiigner, Fergie and Alessia Cara. Fan voting began online Tuesday. Here comes the Duggar bride • Another Duggar is getting married. Jinger Duggar announced her engagement to former professional soccer player Jeremy Vuolo in a video posted Tuesday promoting her new TLC reality show,

“Counting On.” The former “19 Kids and Counting” star calls Vuolo “the man of my dreams.” She said in a video posted last month that the two met in May 2015 and had been on a mission trip together. Vuolo was a goalie at Hardwick College and Syracuse University before going on to play with the New York Red Bulls and the San Antonio Scorpions in the U.S. and overseas in Finland. Jinger, 22, is the sixth-born of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s 19 children. “19 Kids and Counting” ended its 10-season run last year. “Counting On” premieres next month.

From trash to treasured day for ailing 6-year-old Child with disorder gets to be ‘hero’ garbage man BY DARCY COSTELLO associated Press

SACRAMENTO, CALIF. • Ethan Dean has always dreamed of being a garbage man. He never tires of playing with toy garbage trucks and loves to watch the real ones drive past his house. On Tuesday, Ethan, 6, who has cystic fibrosis. got his wish. He rode shotgun in a booster seat through Sacramento, Calif., as an honest-to-goodness garbage truck driver with a set of wheels labeled “Ethan’s Garbage Truck.” He donned a green cape that read “Hero Ethan” and a big smile as the truck stopped to pick up trash and recyclables. It wasn’t a chore for Ethan, who said his favorite part of the day put on by the Make-AWish Foundation was “cleaning up garbage.” Hundreds of people gathered to cheer him on. After being surprised at his school, Ethan and the garbage truck made five stops. Sam Thurman, the Waste Management employee who drove Ethan, said that when he agreed to take part, he had no idea how big the day was going to be. And as for Ethan? “He can’t wipe that grin of his face,” Thurman said. “He looks like it’s Christmas morning and he’s unwrapping his first present.” Ethan was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as an infant and began treatment at 8 weeks old. The genetic disorder is characterized by a buildup of thick mucus and frequent lung infections, and the median life expectancy is about 40 years old. When Make-A-Wish Foundation agreed to grant his wish in February, there was little doubt what he wanted it to be. “We pretty much knew it was going to be about garbage trucks,” said Ethan’s dad, Ken

garbage-truck related, said Jennifer Stolo, CEO of the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Ethan’s uncle, Tim Dean, said it means a lot to the family to have people who don’t even know him come out to celebrate. At least 500 people gathered at the Capitol for a press conference and VIP lunch at the end of Ethan’s day. Erika Sizemore doesn’t know Ethan and said she learned about his special day on social media. It hit home for her, she said, because she has two boys, Kane and Benny, who also love garbage trucks. “As soon as he got out of the truck I cried,” she said, tearing up. “It could happen to any of our kids. He is an amazing little kid and I just think that any of us could be in the same boats as his parents are.”

Dean, laughing. He’s been watching them come down the street since he first learned how to crawl, Dean said. Ethan also has a garbage truck bedspread and pillow, garbage truck toys and has had a garbage truck birthday party. Ethan’s big day comes three years after Make-A-Wish transformed San Francisco into Gotham for a 5-year-old boy who had battled leukemia for years and dreamed of being Batkid. Miles Scott traveled from one crime scene to another, saving a crime victim and thwarting the plans of The Riddler and The Penguin, as crowds of people cheered him on. Ethan’s dream is being a less fantastic, more everyday superhero. When he visited Make-A-Wish and was asked about some of his dreams, almost all of his answers were

DIGEST Home explosion in Omaha kills property inspector A woman who was killed when a house exploded in Omaha, Neb., was a property inspector sent to check the home after a tenant was evicted, authorities said Tuesday. Clara Bender, 30, was fatally injured in the blast just after noon Monday in Omaha’s Benson neighborhood. The explosion leveled the home, badly damaged four adjacent homes, and injured a woman who lived next door and a boy, 14. Bender died after being taken to Nebraska Medical Center, authorities said. It’s unclear whether the evicted tenant has been questioned or if the explosion was being investigated. Omaha police declined to answer those questions Tuesday. Bender, who worked for Certiied Property Management, was at the home to check on its condition after allowing a tenant who was evicted this month to enter the property to collect personal items, the company president said. Legal bills pile up over North Carolina transgender law • More than $176,000 is being billed to North Carolina taxpayers by attorneys hired by Republican politicians to defend the transgender restroom law. A review of submitted legal bills provided to The Associated Press through a public records request found law irms in Washington and Charlotte representing GOP state legislative leaders have charged more than $129,000. Gov. Pat McCrory’s lawyers have billed nearly $47,000. The law irms working on the case haven’t all submitted invoices, and the case may take years to resolve. The NBA last week pulled its 2017 All-Star game from Charlotte because of the law, which denies anti-discrimination protections to lesbian, gay and transgender people. A federal judge plans to hear arguments Monday from groups that want to block the law. Missing camper, 8, found dead • An 8-year-old boy who went missing from a summer day camp at a Boston beach has been found dead in the water. Kyzr Willis was reported missing about 3 p.m. Tuesday from the cityrun camp at Carson Beach in the city’s South Boston neighborhood. He was found dead about 7 p.m.

Police say the child wandered of from the L Street Bathhouse. The reason he left remains unclear. The bathhouse will stay closed while police investigate. The U.S. Coast Guard, state police, Boston police and Quincy police all assisted in the search. Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh released a statement Tuesday night saying that he will be working closely with the Boston Centers for Youth and Families and Boston police to determine what happened. Protesters arrested in Minnesota • Police arrested dozens of people Tuesday while trying to reopen the street in front of the governor’s mansion in St. Paul, Minn., where protesters have been demonstrating over the fatal shooting of a black man by a suburban police oicer three weeks ago. St. Paul police said 46 people were arrested Tuesday for public nuisance and unlawful assembly near the Summit Avenue residence. Police tried several times to reopen the street, Linders said. Demonstrators have been camping outside the governor’s residence since July 7, a day after Philando Castile was shot and killed by a St. Anthony police oicer during a traic stop. Castile’s girlfriend livestreamed the aftermath of his shooting on Facebook. Treasure hunter conirmed dead • A treasure hunter who disappeared this year while searching for an author’s cache of gold and jewels in the New Mexico wilderness was conirmed dead by authorities Tuesday after his remains were discovered west of Santa Fe. Santa Fe Police spokesman Greg Gurule said medical investigators conirmed the remains found along the Rio Grande north of Cochiti Lake were those of Randy Bilyeu, 54, a grandfather from Colorado. Bilyeu disappeared in early January while searching for antiquities dealer and writer Forrest Fenn’s $2 million trove in northern New Mexico. Fenn dropped clues about the treasure in a cryptic poem in his 2011 memoir, “The Thrill of the Chase.” The self-published work spurred tens of thousands to search for Fenn’s loot. From news services

A SPLIT DECISION BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-Dispatch

NEW YORK • The reward and risk of the Cardinals’ powerladen approach to offense this season were both apparent Tuesday as they split a doubleheader at Citi Field against the New York Mets. Jedd Gyorko homered in both games, launching the Cardinals to a season total this summer that is already ahead of last year’s team with 62 games to go, and yet the swing that was enough to win Game 1 couldn’t do enough to take Game 2. Gyorko’s tworun blast provided the diference in the 3-2 first-game victory against the Mets, and Gyorko’s solo homer was not enough to solve Bartolo Colon in the 3-1 loss at night. The split kept the wild-card standings status quo, with the Mets leading the Cardinals by a half game, and both teams lagging behind the leaders, Los Angeles and Miami. A sweep of the doubleheader would have put the Cardinals into a tie with the Marlins for the second wild card. Colon (9-5) lulled the Cardinals with his hypnotic control of the strike zone. He struck out eight batters and held the Cardinals to three hits through his seven innings. For the second time in seven days, the Cardinals had a

A SPLIT DECISION BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-Dispatch

NEW YORK • The reward, the possibilities, and even the risk of the Cardinals’ unexpectedly power-packed offense were all apparent Tuesday as the Cardinals split a doubleheader against the host New York Mets at Citi Field. For the second time in a week, Jedd Gyorko homered in both games of a doubleheader, but instead of hoisting the Cardinals to a sweep, his homers proved just enough in the first game and not nearly enough in the second. Gyorko’s two-run blast was the difference as the Cardinals’ won the afternoon game, 3-2, but his solo homer in the night game was the only dent against Bartolo Colon in a 3-1 loss. Colon struck out eight Cardinals, and while they were always a swing away from tightening the game, they didn’t generate any ofense other than Gyorko’s homer in seven innings against the veteran. “We talk about guys who have something diferent — his sinker is diferent,” manager Mike Matheny said. “He’s found a way to do something the rest of the league isn’t doing.” Colon’s win in the second game assured that the wild-card race would remain unchanged for the two teams immediately

DIGEST Beal signs a new contract with Washington The Washington Wizards have re-signed shooting guard Bradley Beal (Chaminade). The team did not announce the terms of the deal Tuesday, but the AP reported this month that Beal agreed to a five-year contract for $128 million. Beal, 23, was a restricted free agent. The No. 3 overall draft pick in 2012, he averaged a career-high 17.4 points in his fourth season, pairing with John Wall to form one of the NBA’s most dynamic young backcourts. The biggest question mark about Beal is health. He has never played more than 70 games in a season and has been bothered by stress fractures in his right leg. Last season, he made only 35 starts and 55 appearances as the Wizards went 41-41 and missed the playofs. (AP) Stoudemire retires • Amare Stoudemire retired from the NBA after signing his final contract with the New York Knicks. Stoudemire’s greatest team success came in Phoenix as Steve Nash’s pick-and-roll partner, but he chose to leave the NBA as a member of the Knicks, the team that had a lengthy playof drought that ended after he signed there in 2010. Stoudemire was a six-time All-Star but battled knee injuries after his sensational first season in New York, when he became the first Knicks player to be voted an All-Star starter since Patrick Ewing. (AP) Trail Blazers keep Harkless • The Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to a four-year deal with restricted free agent Maurice Harkless. The $40 million deal was first reported by Yahoo Sports. Harkless confirmed it on Twitter. The Blazers acquired Harkless in a trade with the Orlando Magic, and he averaged 6.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 78 games overall last season. He filled a key role late in the regular season when Meyers Leonard injured his shoulder, and averaged 12 points and 6.5 rebounds over the final 11 games. (AP) Other NBA news • Shooting guard Dion Waiters has signed a $5.93 million, two-year contract with the Miami Heat, and he’ll compete for a starting job as Dwyane Wade’s replacement. ... The Detroit Pistons oicially announced their one-year deal with guard Ray McCallum. McCallum averaged 3.3 points per game last season in 41 appearances for San Antonio and Memphis. (AP) Red Wings sign DeKeyser • Detroit avoided arbitration and signed defenseman Danny DeKeyser to a $30 million, six-year contract. DeKeyser will count $5 million against the salary cap throughout the length of the deal. Agent Don Meehan confirmed the terms of the contract Tuesday, including modified no-trade protection beginning in the 2017-18 season.(AP) MU’s Baker is job candidate in Texas • University of Missouri interim athletics director Wren Baker is a strong candidate for the AD position at the University of North Texas, the Denton RecordChronicle is reporting. Baker, 37, has been Mizzou’s interim AD since July 13, when former AD Mack Rhoades left for the same position at Baylor. Baker also is considered a candidate to fill the full-time role at Mizzou, a position that interim chancellor Hank Foley has not given a timeline for filling. Baker previously served AD stints at smaller schools Rogers State (Okla.) and Northwest Missouri State. The Chronicle-Record is reporting that the position is expected to be announced Friday. Central Arkansas AD Brad Teague also appears to be a finalist for the UNT job. (Staf report) Bouchard wins in Rogers Cup • Eugenie Bouchard thrilled her hometown crowd with a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (3) victory over Lucie Safarova in the opening round of the women’s Rogers Cup in Montreal. The tournament lost one of its stars when the third seed, French Open champion Garbine Muguruza, withdrew with an illness. Top seed Serena Williams withdrew on Sunday. In men’s play, Gael Monfils defeated Joao Sousa 6-3, 6-3 and Tomas Berdych beat Borna Coric 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. (AP)

Oakland Raiders defensive end Aldon Smith during an NFL game against the Cincinnati Bengals in September.

BEN FREDERICKSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Remember when Aldon Smith made you think of something other than an unmitigated disaster? Three-star prospect turned Mizzou football superstar. Top-10 draft pick. NFL defensive rookie of the year. Pro Bowler. All-Pro. That’s not the Aldon Smith we think of now. Mention of his name on Monday caused the same sinking feeling that’s occurred for the past four years: What now? The latest incident is perhaps the most harmless and the most damning. Harmless, because forcing the NFL to investigate if that really is Smith on an internet video smoking what appears to be marijuana isn’t nearly as dark as some of the other disturbing mistakes — like the drunken driving charges, the time he got stabbed and charged for possession of an assault weapon, or that bizarre bomb threat at the Los Angeles International Airport.

Damning, because it seems Smith’s inability to address his demons could finally cost him his final shot at playing in the NFL. The 26-year-old linebacker, now with the Raiders, is in the midst of serving the yearlong suspension he earned by violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He can’t even apply for reinstatement until September. And now there’s this video. The production, unfortunately titled “Fire-up session,” was streamed through a Periscope account Smith has used before. And he is referenced in the video. “They don’t know it’s me,” the man tells a woman when she encourages him to stop recording. “It’s not like I put Aldon Smith.” You can’t make this stuff up. Smith, of course, has denied he is the man in the video. That doesn’t make it disappear. Smith is past the point of trying to talk his way past team oicials who are blinded by his talent. What worked when he persuaded the 49ers to let him practice mere hours after a DUI arrest in 2013 might not work this time. He’s in Roger Goodell’s court now. Smith is a Stage 3 violator. Goodell alone decides if Smith’s

application for reinstatement in September is approved. Atop the list of qualifications: Don’t get caught using banned substances. Smith can make his case. He can provide evidence that it wasn’t him in the video, or point to the lack of proof that it was. But Goodell’s court has no judge, no jury. He rules as he sees fit. He answers to no one about it. “Once you are in Stage 3, you are really totally out of control,” ESPN’s Ed Werder said Monday. “It’s time to stop the car, pull over, let’s get out and everybody assess who we are and what we stand for. And he’s already beyond that point.” Smith has blown through every red light. He’s been to what everyone else assumed was rock bottom, then drilled deeper. He’s made those who defended him look like fools. He’s made those who tried to help him realize you can’t help a person who won’t help himself. What now? Aldon Smith awaits yet another chance. What next? His downward spiral suggests nothing good. Ben Frederickson @Ben_Fred on Twitter bfrederickson@post-dispatch.com

NFL NOTEBOOK

Redskins’ Galette out for season again Loss of former Saints player is big blow for Washington’s defense FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS

Washington Redskins linebacker Junior Galette tore his right Achilles tendon and will miss the season. Galette tweeted about the injury Monday, just before players were set to report to training camp in Richmond, Va. He missed the 2015 season with a torn left Achilles tendon. The loss of Galette is a major blow to the Redskins’ defense, which added All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman in free agency. Galette’s return was supposed to boost Washington’s pass rush. The 28-year-old last played for the New Orleans Saints in 2014, when he had 10 sacks and 45 tackles. The Redskins re-signed him to a $4 million, one-year deal during the ofseason. Galette has 31½ sacks and 128 tackles in 64 NFL games, all with the Saints. Browns’ Gordon injured • Josh Gordon’s return to football has been sidetracked again. The oft-suspended Browns wide receiver, who was reinstated on a conditional basis by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday, has a quadriceps injury that will keep him out of training camp for at least two weeks. It’s a new setback for Gordon, who hasn’t played since 2014 and was suspended all of last season for multiple drug violations. Gordon reported to camp Tuesday — two days before Cleveland’s veterans were required to arrive — and after he took a physical it was determined he needs time to recover from the injury, sustained while working out on his own. The Browns placed Gordon on the active/non-football injury list. Four Cardinals on PUP list • Safety-cornerback Tyrann Mathieu and cornerback Justin Bethel are among four players placed on the physically unable to perform list by the Arizona Cardinals in advance of the opening of training camp.

The All-Pro Mathieu is returning from surgery to repair a torn ACL and Bethel, in competition for a starting cornerback job, is coming back from surgery to repair a fractured left foot. Also placed on the PUP list by Arizona were defensive lineman Frostee Rucker (foot) and linebacker Zack Wagenmann (foot). Ravens have deal with Jake Long • Veteran offensive tackle Jake Long, the first overall pick in the 2008 draft, whose career has been slowed by a series of injuries, has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Ravens. The deal is contingent on Long, who played for the Rams from 201314, taking a physical, which will happen Wednesday. If all goes well with the physical and Long passes the team’s conditioning test, the 31-yearold four-time Pro Bowl selection could join his new teammates on the field for Thursday’s workout. Carroll has new contract • The Seattle Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll have agreed on a contract extension, keeping the oldest head coach in the NFL locked up through the 2019 season. The move with the 64-year-old Carroll came just two days after the team locked up general manager John Schneider to a contract extension. Both Carroll’s and Schneider’s current deals were set to expire after the 2016 season. Carroll is 60-36 in the regular season since becoming Seattle’s head coach in 2010. He’s taken the Seahawks to the playofs in five of six seasons, including two Super Bowl appearances and the only title in franchise history. Hester cut by Falcons • Star return specialist Devin Hester was released by the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday following an injuryshortened 2015 season. The 33-year-old Hester is a three-time All-Pro who set an NFL record with 20 career returns for touchdowns. He began his ca-

reer with the Chicago Bears before signing a three-year, $9 million deal with Atlanta before the 2014 season. A turf toe injury knocked out most of his season in 2015. He had 269 total return yards during the last five games of the year. He had surgery in January, preventing him from full participation in ofseason workouts. Cofman to Colts • Chase Cofman, a consensus All-American and the winner of the John Mackey Award as college football’s top tight end in 2008 at Missouri, has signed with the Indianapolis Colts. It’s the sixth NFL stop for Coffman, 29, who has played in 37 games with 18 catches since being drafted in the third round in 2009 by Cincinnati. Boldin joining Lions • Anquan Boldin is joining the Detroit Lions, according to messages on the free-agent receiver’s Twitter account. Boldin caught 69 passes for 789 yards and four touchdowns last season for the 49ers. The Lions have had to add to their receiving group this ofseason, with Calvin Johnson now retired. Madden, Levy are HOF presenters • Pro Football Hall of Fame coaches John Madden and Marv Levy are among the presenters chosen to welcome the eight-member Class of 2016 at the induction ceremonies Aug. 6 in Canton, Ohio. Madden will speak on behalf of the late quarterback Ken Stabler, who played for Madden with the Oakland Raiders in the 1970s. The quarterback died in 2015 at the age of 69. Levy will be the presenter for offensive lineman Dick Stanfel, who died last year at 87. The others inductees, and their presenters, are Orlando Pace (son, Justin Pace), Edward J. DeBartolo Jr. (daughter, Lisa DeBartolo), Tony Dungy (Donnie Shell), Brett Favre (wife, Deanna Favre), Kevin Green (Dom Capers) and Marvin Harrison (Jim Irsay).

Sales email from Rams angers fans BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Stan Kroenke didn’t want to be in St. Louis. But he still wants your money. At least that’s what many former season ticket-holders here thought when they received an email from the Los Angeles Rams ofering new hats and jerseys for sale. “Limited Time. Free Shipping over $40,” read the email. “Rams sideline headwear worn by the players and coaches during the 2016 season.” There was also a link to buy from the “Rams jersey collection.” The hats included the Rams logo, but the words “Los Angeles” were not visible. The Post-Dispatch heard from dozens of fans of the team in St. Louis — including some who were not season ticket-holders — and suice it to say they weren’t pleased

to find the email in their inbox. “When I got this email, I thought at first someone was playing a sick joke on me,” said Joseph Nassif of Creve Coeur. “When I realized it was from the Rams, I was shocked.” Nassif said he was part of a group of 18 friends who bought season tickets when the team moved to St. Louis in 1995. “I was the last one to keep his tickets all the way to the very end,” he said. “I practice law in a building owned by Stan, which makes me sick to my stomach.” Todd Thrasher of Glendale, called it another slap in the face from the Rams’ organization. “Sending an email wanting me to buy more gear right around the time I’d normally be getting my season tickets in the mail,” Thrasher said. “No surprise considering the way they’ve treated the fans and this city. I’m one of those longtime season ticket-holders who was lied to right to

my face by (Kevin) Demof. It was easy for me to just hit ‘unsubscribe.’ I just hope the Rams’ organization didn’t hide some malware in that ‘unsubscribe’ link!” A Rams spokesperson said the email was inadvertently sent to fans in the St. Louis area from an old database. Mistake or not, it was tough to take for area football fans still reeling from the team’s departure. “Please tell Kevin Demof where he can place his hat,” said one fan. “Twenty-plus years of buying season tickets, $9 beers and stale pretzels, you’d think Stan could give me a free cap,” said Mike Wild of Crestwood. Daniel Meyer of Wildwood, a charter season ticket-holder in 1995, said he will not be buying a hat, and said he’s thinking about adopting the Tennessee Titans as his new team to follow. “Relatively close, great city to visit, and an exciting young QB to follow in (Marcus)

Mariotta,” Meyer said. Jay Wessler of Arenzville, Ill., said he was surprised to receive the hats email because an earlier request to buy season tickets for the team in Los Angeles was denied. “I didn’t receive a note, phone call, or email saying they were leaving or thanks for my 21 years of loyal service ... but a kiss-my-(butt) denial,” Wessler said. “I have tried to respond and get my deposit returned but I am not having any luck. But I am confident I will.” And from Vince Doder of south St. Louis County; “Personally, I just trashed it. I was not particularly mad. I was surprised. ... Not having a football team will be something we as a region will miss — maybe not this year but in future years.” Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

Plenty of intriguing stories to follow in the NFL NFL • FROM B1

BRADY

1. MARK SANCHEZ, REALLY?

SANCHEZ

He did help the Jets reach the AFC title game his first two seasons in the league. He has 72 career regular-season starts, and is only 29. But when the signature play of your career is called the “The Butt Fumble,” well, it may be tough for Mark Sanchez to lead the Broncos back to the Super Bowl. Rookie Paxton Lynch has a rocket arm and loads of potential but probably won’t be ready right away. In the short term, Denver must lean heavily on a defense that returns four Pro Bowlers and nine starters.

BENJAMIN

2. CAN THE PATS SURVIVE FOUR GAMES WITHOUT BRADY?

3. WILL CAROLINA FALL VICTIM TO THE SUPER BOWL HANGOVER?

When Tom Brady decided to drop his legal fight in “Deflate-gate,” that meant Jimmy Garoppolo would start the first four games at quarterback. A secondround pick from Eastern Illinois in 2014, Jimmy G has had two years to watch and learn. He’s thrown only 31 regularseason passes. It figures to be a tough opener in prime time Sept. 11 at Arizona, but there’s no reason the Patriots can’t win their next three against Miami, Houston, and Bufalo — all in the friendly confines of Gillette Stadium.

If anyone has an antidote, it’s “Riverboat” Ron Rivera. The Panthers’ coach spent part of the spring practice period warning against complacency in 2016. QB Cam Newton, who accounted for 45 TDs throwing and running a year ago, will have a healthy Kelvin Benjamin and an emerging Devin Funchess at wide receiver. But after the team allowed Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman to walk by surprisingly removing his franchise tag, the starting cornerbacks are Bene’ Benwikere and James Bradberry. Not exactly household names.

ELLIOTT GOFF

PALMER

4. WHO STARTS FIRST, JARED GOFF OR CARSON WENTZ?

5. IS ARIZONA’S WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY CLOSING?

6. WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM EZEKIEL ELLIOTT?

They went 1-2 in the draft — Goff to the Rams and Wentz to the Eagles, with both teams trading a boatload of picks to move up. Predictably, the word out of Los Angeles and Philadelphia is that neither will start until ready. But as much as Jeff Fisher likes Case Keenum, there’s no reason not to go Goff on opening day, relying on Todd Gurley and defense to take the pressure of. In Philly, former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford played well over the second half of 2015; the Eagles can be more patient.

Yep, and the Cardinals know it. Carson Palmer is coming of a career year in passing yards (4,671), TD passes (35) and rating (104.6). It was enough to reach the NFC title game, but Arizona wants a Super Bowl in the worst way. Palmer turns 37 in December and there’s no replacement on the horizon. Star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald turns 33 next month. And Bruce Arians, who turns 64 in October, isn’t going to coach forever. The Big Red, once again, figure to be among the favorites in the NFC.

Yards. Lots of yards. That’s unless something happens with respect to the recent allegations of abuse by an exgirlfriend, which Elliott and his family have strongly denied. Quarterback Tony Romo is healthy, and so is wide receiver Dez Bryant. Running behind what is widely regarded as one of the league’s top ofensive lines, Elliott — the running back from John Burroughs — could be in line for a monster rookie year. The kind that could make Tony Dorsett, Emmitt Smith and even DeMarco Murray proud.

SPANOS

GRIFFIN

CARR

FITZPATRICK

7. WHO’S THE TOUGHEST FOE ON SAN DIEGO’S SCHEDULE?

8. CAN RGIII REDISCOVER HIS MAGIC IN CLEVELAND?

9. THE NFL’S MOST IMPROVED TEAMS WILL BE ... ?

10. WILL RYAN FITZPATRICK EVER SIGN A CONTRACT?

The voters. Despite legal eforts to lower the threshold to a simple majority, it looks as if it will take a two-thirds majority to approve a hotel tax hike initiative on the November ballot to help finance a $1.8 billion downtown stadium. Good luck on that. Without the tax dollars, Chargers owner Dean Spanos may be forced to be Stan Kroenke’s tenant in Inglewood, Calif., something he doesn’t want to do. What to do, Dean? You could check in on St. Louis, which currently is without an NFL team.

New Browns coach Hue Jackson has a reputation as a quarterback whisperer. Cleveland lost one its best pass-catchers, Travis Benjamin, to free agency but drafted four wide receivers and could have Josh Gordon back on the field after four games. Even so, we’ll have to see it to believe it with Robert Griffin III, whose career has plummeted after he earned offensive rookie of the year laurels in 2012. Inactive for every game last season in Washington, Griin must show he can be an effective pocket passer.

Oakland and Jacksonville. The Raiders haven’t had a winning season or a playof appearance since 2002, yes, longer droughts than even the Rams. But just in time for Las Vegas, Mark Davis’ franchise appears to be on the verge. QB Derek Carr and LB/DE Khalil Mack are cornerstone players, WR Amari Cooper looks like an emerging star, and the Raiders were major players in free agency. Similarly, Shad Khan’s Jaguars were big spenders in free agency and added DB Jalen Ramsey and LB Myles Jack in the draft.

When he was a Rams rookie in 2005, teammates took advantage of his Harvard education to ask him all kinds of questions. They thought he could answer anything. One of Fitzpatrick’s favorites: What would hurt worse, getting kicked by a donkey or getting hit by an elephant’s trunk? After a career year for the New York Jets last season, surely Fitzpatrick is smart enough to know it’s time to sign a contract, get as much guaranteed money as possible and get into camp. Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are waiting.

This Date In Baseball July 27 1918: Brooklyn rookie Henry Heitman completed one of the shortest careers in major league history. Heitman appeared on the mound against the St. Louis Cardinals, gave up four consecutive hits and then left the game, never to play a major league game again. 1930: Ken Ash of Cincinnati got his last major league victory by throwing one pitch. Ash came into relieve in the fifth inning and got Chicago’s Charlie Grimm to hit into a triple play. Ash was removed for a pinch hitter and the Reds beat the Cubs 6-5. 1946: Rudy York of Boston hit two grand slams and drove in 10 runs as the Red Sox beat the St. Louis Browns 13-6. 1950: Del Ennis of the Philadelphia Phillies drove in seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings of a 13-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Ennis doubled with the bases loaded in the seventh and hit a grand slam in the eighth. 1959: New York lawyer William Shea announced the formation of the Continental League. New York, Houston, Toronto, Denver and Minneapolis-St. Paul were the five cities named and Branch Rickey was named league president.

NOTEBOOK

Cards put Rosenthal on the disabled list BY DERRICK GOOLD st. Louis Post-dispatch

NEW YORK • During a conversation this

past weekend about what the Cardinals could try next to help relocated closer Trevor Rosenthal recapture his consistency, the reliever himself made a suggestion he and the team had previously dismissed. He asked for a medical review. A series of tests Monday revealed that the righthander has inflammation around his rotator cuff and some discomfort closer to his elbow. The Cardinals placed Rosenthal on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, but before the team can plot a timetable for his recovery the righthander will seek a second opinion. That is expected to be scheduled for next week. Until that point, the Cardinals are in a holding pattern on what and when to expect anything from the All-Star. “We are hopeful that he can avoid surgery,” general manager John Mozeliak said. “He went through the full review, and he’s going to get another look. At this point, we’re looking at rehab options he’ll have and rest. It does explain a little bit of his command issues.” The Cardinals recalled lefty Dean

Kiekhefer to take Rosenthal’s spot on the roster, and Mozeliak has continued to search the trade market for a relief addition. In the days leading up to Monday’s nonwaiver trade deadline, the Cardinals have intended to add a pitcher for depth and to help settle the late-inning situation for the team. It’s similar to 2012, when the team traded for Edward Mujica and inserted him into the seventh inning to bring order to the relief equation. Mozeliak said, if anything, the uncertainty with Rosenthal in the coming two weeks “emboldens” the team’s efort to add a pitcher. But the GM said he didn’t see anything imminent. The Cubs’ trade for Yankees’ closer Aroldis Chapman upset the market Monday by increasing the price teams can expect for a rental like Chapman, one of the most dominant closers in the game. One benefit to the Cardinals is it could inspire more teams to market their relievers instead of holding on to them. In a seller’s market, the Cardinals would have more choices — though the price would still be high. The Cardinals have been looking at a tier of available relievers that includes Arizona’s Daniel Hudson or Tyler Clippard and the options that the Brewers hold, lefty Will

Smith and Jim Jefress. Both of the Brewers’ relievers come with control beyond 2017. The Cardinals do not want to be viewed as desperate to answer the Cubs’ acquisition of Chapman and thus lose leverage in negotiations. Mozeliak does not comment on specific targets. The Cardinals’ search for added relief became obvious when Rosenthal’s struggles intensified in the past five weeks. Since mid-June, Rosenthal has blown two saves, gone 0-3 and posted a 8.49 ERA with 35 baserunners in 112/3 innings. His command has failed him, and as a result the Cardinals replaced him as closer with Seung Hwan Oh. The Cardinals attempted a variety of ways to reboot their All-Star closer. He appeared in low-leverage spots, he went several days without pitching at all, and pitched multiple innings. This past weekend, on Sunday, he walked the bases loaded. That prompted the discussion on what to try next. Through all those attempts, the Cardinals have maintained that Rosenthal was healthy, and manager Mike Matheny often pointed to the righthander’s steady velocity. Rosentha’s request to have his arm examined “was news to us at the time,” Ma-

theny said. “I can’t jump in his body and tell you how he feels. We’re just going to have to rely on what they tell us. Many times (we) ask and try to get some feedback. Not only did it not concern us, but also how much he wanted to pitch and try to get in there as much as he could.”

LYONS EYED FOR START The Cardinals will have to accommodate for Tuesday’s doubleheader by inserting a starter Saturday, just as they did this past weekend. The team’s preference would be to use lefty Tyler Lyons for that game, and two scoreless innings in Tuesday’s first game would line him up for the assignment. Alex Reyes was removed from his Class AAA start Tuesday night after three innings and 57 pitches so that he would be ready if needed for Saturday’s start. The Cardinals’ intended to start Lyons on Sunday before he had to throw earlier in the weekend to cover innings. That set in motion a series of moves that thrust Mike Mayers into Sunday’s start. If Lyons is needed in the next few days, the Cardinals want to have Reyes ready for his debut. Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

doubleheader, and for the second time in seven days Gyorko hit at least one home run in both games of the twin set. Gyorko has hit seven home runs in his past nine games, and he’s slugged greater than .800 since Matt Carpenter went on the disabled list and opened playing time for the infielder. Manager Mike Matheny referred to Gyorko as “an interesting player.” He’s been part of the Cardinals’ power infusion from a year ago. The Cardinals’ series of rolling blackouts left them as one of the least powerful teams in the majors a year ago, and they hit only 137 homers. Total. Gyorko’s first homer Tuesday was the Cardinals’ 137th of this season, and it came in Game No. 99. His homer in the night game was the Cardinals’ 138th, and it came in Game No. 100. With nearly 40 percent of the season remaining the Cardinals have already hit more homers. Colon and a parade of relievers that ended with closer Juerys Familia kept the Cardinals from mustering any more offense, and they weren’t as good at manufacturing runs as they were slugging for them. They also helped the Mets in the second game with an error of their own. Gyorko’s homer gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead in the second inning against Colon. The Mets answered with two doubles of Jaime Garcia in the second, and in the fourth a failed catch in right field by Randal Grichuk allowed Wilmer Flores to advance to third base. That meant he could score on a double play to break the 1-1 tie. In the fifth inning, the Mets added a run after Garcia (7-7) hit a batter and he came around to score eventually on a sacrifice fly. Familia faced the tying run at the plate before securing his 36th save. Gyorko’s home runs underscored the

diference in pitching styles the Cardinals faced within the span of a few hours Tuesday in Queens. The home run that provided the winning run in the afternoon game came on a 98 mph fastball from Noah Syndergaard, and the solo shot in the night game came on Colon’s 84 mph fastball. Syndergaard throws a changeup that is firmer and faster than Colon’s fastball, while the veteran, with his girth of experience, relies on movement and placement of pitches rather than the laser beams of Syndergaard. Coming into Tuesday’s doubleheader, the two All-Star pitchers sat at opposite ends of the velocity spectrum with Syndergaard averaging 98.1 mph on his fastball and this season and Colon confusing and confounding hitters with an 87.8 mph fastball. “Pretty good contrast,” Matheny said. “We’ve always liked doing that as a staf. If you have guys who are polar opposites, try to stack them on top of each other instead of having two very similar pitchers. These guys are radically different.” So were their results. While Syndergaard (9-5) struck out three batters in the first inning – including leadof hitter Greg Garcia, looking at a 99 mph pill – and would have eight strikeouts in the game, the Cardinals laced hits off him. Two infield singles and an error by Syndergaard allowed the Cardinals to take a 1-0 lead in the second inning. In the third inning, Syndergaard walked cleanup hitter Matt Adams to bring Gyorko up. The Cardinals’ third baseman (in the first game), drilled a pitch of the ribbon board above left field to put the Cardinals ahead 3-0. The shutout didn’t survive the fourth inning as Mets catcher Rene Rivera hit a 3-1 pitch into the seats for a two-run homer that cleaved the Cardinals’ lead to 3-2.

Carlos Martinez, the Cardinals’ first 10-game winner, bobbed and weaved through trouble throughout his five innings in the afternoon game. The righthander had eight quality starts in his previous nine games but wouldn’t get there Tuesday because of increasingly diicult innings. Some of it was his own making. He nicked a batter on the cleat with a breaking ball to put him on base ahead of Rivera’s homer. In the third inning he had to pitch out of a basesloaded mess by getting Kelly Johnson flailing at an 89 mph changeup. Three times he eased out of an inning with at least two runners on base and did allow a run. The brevity of Martinez’s outing left 12 outs for the bullpen to get, all of them with a one-run lead to hold. The reorganized bullpen had two additions Tuesday — Dean Kiekhefer and, for the night game, Sam Tuivailala — and one more subtraction, Trevor Rosenthal. The former closer’s move to the DL gave the Cardinals a roster move with a pitcher for the third consecutive day. It also meant another day of groping through middle relief to hold a lead. Lefty Tyler Lyons, the team’s preferred candidate to start Saturday’s game, pitched two scoreless innings of relief. He retired six of the seven batters he faced. Kevin Siegrist handled the eighth, his usual assignment these days, and Seung Hwan Oh completed a scoreless ninth for his fifth save since moving into the closer’s role. He received help from center fielder Tommy Pham. With the leadof hitter on base, Pham tracked down a deep fly ball to center field and then threw a rope to second base to get the runner trying to advance. The double play squelched the Mets’ rally and assured the first-game win. Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

One benefit to the Cardinals is it could inspire more teams to market their relievers instead of holding on to them. In a seller’s market, the Cardinals would have more choices — though the price would still be high. The Cardinals have been looking at a tier of available relievers that includes Arizona’s Daniel Hudson or Tyler Clippard and the options that the Brewers hold, lefty Will

Smith and Jim Jefress. Both of the Brewers’ relievers come with control beyond 2017. The Cardinals do not want to be viewed as desperate to answer the Cubs’ acquisition of Chapman and thus lose leverage in negotiations. Mozeliak does not comment on specific targets. The Cardinals’ search for added relief became obvious when Rosenthal’s struggles intensified in the past five weeks. Since mid-June, Rosenthal has blown two saves, gone 0-3 and posted a 8.49 ERA with 35 baserunners in 112/3 innings. His command has failed him, and as a result the Cardinals replaced him as closer with Seung Hwan Oh. The Cardinals attempted a variety of ways to reboot their All-Star closer. He appeared in low-leverage spots, he went several days without pitching at all, and pitched multiple innings. This past weekend, on Sunday, he walked the bases loaded. That prompted the discussion on what to try next. Through all those attempts, the Cardinals have maintained that Rosenthal was healthy, and manager Mike Matheny often pointed to the righthander’s steady velocity. Rosentha’s request to have his arm examined “was news to us at the time,” Ma-

theny said. “I can’t jump in his body and tell you how he feels. We’re just going to have to rely on what they tell us. Many times (we) ask and try to get some feedback. Not only did it not concern us, but also how much he wanted to pitch and try to get in there as much as he could.”

LYONS EYED FOR START The Cardinals will have to accommodate for Tuesday’s doubleheader by inserting a starter Saturday, just as they did this past weekend. The team’s preference would be to use lefty Tyler Lyons for that game, and two scoreless innings in Tuesday’s first game would line him up for the assignment. Alex Reyes was removed from his Class AAA start Tuesday night after three innings and 57 pitches so that he would be ready if needed for Saturday’s start. The Cardinals’ intended to start Lyons on Sunday before he had to throw earlier in the weekend to cover innings. That set in motion a series of moves that thrust Mike Mayers into Sunday’s start. If Lyons is needed in the next few days, the Cardinals want to have Reyes ready for his debut. Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

behind the leaders, the Dodgers and Marlins. The Cardinals had a chance to vault into a tie with the Marlins with a doubleheader sweep, but instead remain a half-game behind the Mets for the next-closest to the second wild card. A postponed game Monday forced the Cardinals into their second doubleheader in seven days and meant that they will play seven games in six days against the two teams immediately ahead of them in the wild-card standings, these Mets and then Miami. While the Cardinals opted to stick with their rotation and throw a rightleft combo against the Mets on Tuesday — Carlos Martinez first, Jaime Garcia next — the Mets had the benefit of starting two All-Stars. Each from a diferent side of the speed spectrum. Gyorko’s two home runs Tuesday gave the Cardinals 138 in 100 games this season, one more than they had all of last season. The league leader in home runs has topped last year’s meek total with almost 40 percent of its games remaining. Gyorko’s homers also illustrated the difference in style the Cardinals faced, downshifting from Noah Syndergaard’s 100 mph flow in the first game to Colon, his girth of experience, and a mid-80s fastball in the second game. Gyorko’s two-run jolt against Syndergaard came on a 98 mph fastball. His solo homer to give the Cardinals a brief 1-0 lead in the second game came on an 84 mph fastball. On average, the difference between Syndergaard’s average fastball (98.1 mph) and Colon’s “super sinker,” as Gyorko called it, is 11 mph. “Pretty good contrast,” Matheny said. “We’ve always liked doing that as a staf. If you can have guys who are polar opposites, try to stack them on top of

each other instead of having two very similar pitchers. These guys are radically diferent.” The Cardinals’ starters, Martinez and Garcia, each went five innings. Garcia (7-7) was lifted for a pinch-hitter in an attempt to spur the ofense against Colon. Martinez, the Cardinals’ first 10game winner, was lifted because of a rising pitch count and a string of threatening innings. Martinez (10-6) had to pitch out of a bases-loaded mess with a strikeout in the third inning, and in four of his five innings he pitched with at least two runners on base. Three times he was able to wiggle free without allowing a run. Gyorko’s two-run homer of Syndergaard (9-5) gave the Cardinals a 3-0 lead in the first game. Rene Rivera answered, after Martinez hit a batter, with a tworun homer that sliced the lead to a run. The bullpen held it there. Led by Tyler Lyons’ two scoreless innings and finished with Seung Hwan Oh’s fifth save, the Cardinals’ turnstile bullpen pitched four scoreless innings. Oh got help from Tommy Pham, who made a catch in center field, pivoted, and threw a strike to second base to catch Curtis Granderson trying to advance into scoring position. “Grandy is really aggressive on the bases,” Pham said. “I knew I had to get the ball in hard and quick.” These are adjectives that do not apply any more to Colon. Once a fireballer who had no need for nuance, Colon has aged into something of a roly-poly finesse lefty, though from the right side. Eleven years removed from his Cy Young Award, Colon (9-5) struck out a season-high, and for the eighth time did not walk a batter. That minimized any damage the Cardinals could have done, even with their home runs. Gyorko tagged the first pitch of the second inning for his 13th homer of the

season. Colon retired 18 of the 19 batters after Gyorko’s homer. The sinker “looks like it’s in the other batter’s box and before you know he’s catching it on the corner,” Gyorko said. “You don’t see that kind of pitch ever except for when you face him. It’s almost like a lefthanded slider.” The Mets nibbled away at Garcia and eventually got help from the Cardinals’ defense to take their first and only lead. Doubles in the third inning allowed the Mets to tie the score 1-1. Randal Grichuk misplayed a catch in the fourth inning that allowed Wilmer Flores to reach third base. He scored on a double play ball that would have ended the inning. Instead, the error meant Flores’ run broke the tie. In the fifth, a hit batter led to a sacrifice fly for the final run. A run prevention team a year ago with a finely honed defense, the Cardinals have been the opposite this year. They have eight batters with at least 10 homers, and Matheny suggested a handful of them have the potential to hit 20 homers. The playing time to do so is another matter. The power has given them a chance to score runs in bunches, unlike last year when they needed bunched hits to produce one run. Gyorko’s first homer gave them the gap they needed to win the first game, and even in the ninth inning of the second game they felt one swing away from tying the score when a runner got on base against closer Jeurys Familia. Power has that efect on a team. “Even up to the last pitch,” Gyorko said. “If you’ve got the tying run at the plate, there’s a good chance we can tie the game up. It’s a good luxury to have. You never feel like you’re out of the game.” Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

Blue Jays trade for OF Upton Padres get minor-league pitcher Rodriguez in transaction ASSOCIATED PRESS

PGA is last chance at major title for ‘Big hree’

The San Diego Padres traded left fielder Melvin Upton Jr. to the Toronto Blue Jays for minor-league righthander Hansel Rodriguez. The trade, which continues the Padres’ rebuilding, was announced Tuesday morning, hours before the Padres played at Toronto in the middle game of a three-game series. Upton has had a big season for the Padres, who are mired in fourth place in the NL West. He is hitting .256 with 16 home runs, 45 RBIs, 46 runs scored and 20 stolen bases. He’s hit three gameending home runs. The 19-year-old Rodriguez was 2-1 with a 3.06 ERA in six starts for the Rookie-Level Bluefield Blue Jays. Padres general manager A.J. Preller said the deal had been in the works for a few weeks. Upton has rejuvenated his career after struggling in the wake of signing a big contract with the Atlanta Braves. “He’s played well,” Preller said. “He’s really played both sides of the ball. He has a chance to be a 30-30 guy. He’s hit some big home runs in some big spots and has played tremendous defense for us in left field.” The Padres reportedly will pay all but $5 million of the $22.5 million remaining on Upton’s contract.

Melvin Upton Jr. sits in the dugout Tuesday night with his new team, the Blue Jays.

fore Tuesday night’s scheduled game. Zimmerman back with Nats • Washington reinstated first baseman Ryan Zimmerman from the disabled list after he missed 13 games because of a strained left rib cage. Zimmerman recently completed a rehab assignment at Class A Potomac, where he batted .417 with a homer and five RBIs. Zimmerman was batting only .221 with 12 homers and 38 RBIs for Washington when he got hurt. Also, the team reinstated lefthander Sammy Solis, who was sidelined 13 games because of an inflamed right knee. The 27-year-old has a 2.43 ERA in 25 games for Washington. To make roster space for Zimmerman and Solis, the NL East-leading Nationals optioned outfielder Michael A. Taylor and righthander Lucas Giolito to Triple-A Syracuse.

Rangers cut Lohse • Kyle Lohse has been designated for assignment by the Texas Rangers after only two starts. The Rangers made the move Tuesday when Nick Martinez was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock to start that night’s game against Oakland. Lohse had been the scheduled starter for the Rangers. Lohse lost both his starts and had a 12.54 ERA for Texas since being called up just before the All-Star break. He allowed 15 hits and 13 runs in 9 1/3 innings with three strikeouts and five walks. The 37-year-old righthander had gone 2-5 with a 5.06 ERA in 10 starts for Round Rock after signing a minor league deal with Texas. Lohse pitched for the Cardinals from 2008 to 20012. The Rangers also promoted top prospect Joey Gallo from Round Rock be-

Orioles reinstate Kim • Baltimore reinstated rookie outfielder Hyun Soo Kim from the 15-day disabled list and welcomed back pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez from paternity leave. Kim spent the minimum 15 days on the DL with a right hamstring strain. He returned to the lineup Tuesday night, batting second and playing left field against Colorado.

Kim is batting .329 with three homers and 11 RBIs. He signed with Baltimore in December after a successful nine-year run in the Korean Baseball Organization. Jimenez missed three days to join his wife for the delivery of the couple’s first child, a daughter. To clear room on the roster, the Orioles optioned outfielder Dariel Alvarez to Triple-A Norfolk and designated outfielder Julio Borbon for assignment. Gordon set to rejoin Marlins • Miami second baseman Dee Gordon will be eligible for reinstatement from his 80game suspension Thursday before the Marlins’ game against the Cardinals. Gordon, last year’s National League batting champ, was suspended for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy. He will be looking to help the Marlins (53-46) make a postseason push, although he will not be eligible to participate as part of his violation. “We’re going to blend him back in for sure,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “We feel like we’re capable of getting into the playofs, and if we get to the playofs he can’t play, so it’s kind of a balancing act of trying to get in and what do you do when you get there?”

Rangers starting pitcher Kyle Lohse, who was cut on Tuesday, works against the Angels in a game on July 19 in Anaheim, Calif.

example, but Delany won’t. “We have had discussions on that,” Delany said Tuesday during the second day of the Big Ten’s annual football media days. “Ever is quite a long time, but I would tell you that as we’ve looked at it, we’ve talked to our athletic directors, our faculty and presidents. “We’ve had outside legal counsel as well as experts on the Clery Act and Title IX. And we believe the facts and circumstances closest to the ground are the places those decisions ought to be made.” The Clery Act, which was passed in 1990, was named in honor of Jeanne Clery, the 19-year-old Lehigh University student who was raped and murdered in her dorm room in 1986 by a fellow student. “Under the Act, institutions must provide survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking with options such as changes to academic, transportation, or living, or working situations, and assistance in notifying local law enforcement, if the student or employee chooses to do so,” according to the Clery Center for Security on Campus. Former Baylor football coach Art Briles loved giving second chances. By second chances, of course, I mean he was willing to rehabilitate troubled youths who could play Division I football. In 2013, Briles accepted transfer Sam Ukwuachu even though he was booted from Boise State after an assault accusation by a former girlfriend. He wasn’t on the Waco campus six months before he raped a student. Ukwuachu’s for-

mer Boise State coach, Chris Petersen, said he “thoroughly apprised Coach Briles of the circumstances surrounding Sam’s disciplinary record and dismissal,” according to a statement he issued to ESPN. Briles claimed that Petersen never mentioned Ukwuachu’s history of violence against women. As we learned last month in the Pepper Hamilton Report that brought down Briles and Baylor President Ken Starr, Briles didn’t exactly protect the women victimized by his players. “Baylor failed to take appropriate action to respond to reports of sexual assault and dating violence reportedly committed by football players,” the Pepper Hamilton report concluded. “The choices made by football staf and athletics leadership, in some instances, posed a risk to campus safety and the integrity of the University. “In certain instances, including reports of a sexual assault by multiple football players, athletics and football personnel affirmatively chose not to report sexual violence and dating violence to an appropriate administrator outside of athletics.” The Baylor scandal is old news by now, but we shouldn’t forget about those crimes because it’s foolhardy to think Briles was the only coach looking the other way. If the Big 12 had instituted a rule banning transfers with misconduct issues, we wouldn’t have to wonder what Petersen told Briles about Ukwuachu’s violent history. Fans too often look the other way when the criminal is scoring touchdowns or making tackles for their dear

university. Delany should not. The Big Ten and every conference should ban transfers with misconduct issues. “I think just as you’ve seen these policies executed and in some cases they work, in some cases they fail to work,” Delany said Tuesday. “So we’ve got a lot of confidence in the commitment by our institutions totally committed to reducing and if not eliminating violence, sexual violence in every way. “And so we will continue to have those discussions, but we have made the decision that, based on the facts and circumstances being local, that’s the best place for these decisions to be worked out.” Rest assured that the Big Ten wants to keep up with the SEC and the Pac 12, just as Baylor wanted to keep up with the Big 12 heavyweights that had pounded the Bears for years. Speaking of Bears, the Cubs acquired a closer who served a 30-game suspension at the start of this season for violating baseball’s domestic violence policy. Last October, Chapman was accused of choking his girlfriend and firing a shotgun eight times. When the news of the assault came to light last winter, the Dodgers pulled out of trade talks with the Reds for Chapman. The Yankees eventually acquired him. On Tuesday, the Cubs acquired Chapman from the Yankees in hope of winning their first World Series in 108 years. The Cubs will to take their chance with Chapman because the right thing to do sadly takes a back seat to the quest for a championship.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. • Rory McIlroy took stock

of his game and the shots required at Baltusrol and reached a most logical conclusion Tuesday. He believes the PGA Championship will be his best chance this year to win a major. He overlooked the obvious. It now is his only chance this year to win a major. McIlroy is not alone. Except for the three players who have achieved the ultimate in golf this year by winning majors — Danny Willett at the Masters, Dustin Johnson at the U.S. Open and Henrik Stenson at the British Open — the PGA Championship is all they have left. The focus starts with McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day. They began the year as the modern version of the “Big Three” because they had captured five of the previous six majors and took turns at No. 1 in the world ranking. But they have come up empty in the majors — so far. Spieth is feeling it as much as anyone, mainly because he nearly won them all a year ago with a major performance that ranked among the best ever. So when a question was posed to him Tuesday that expecting 20 more years like that would probably be a tough benchmark, Spieth leaned toward the microphone and interrupted. “Probably?” he said. Even with two victories and a chance at the Masters that he threw away with one bad swing at the wrong time, he has been noticeable in the last two majors by his absence from the leaderboard. Spieth, who turns 23 on Wednesday, had contended in five straight majors. He finished 13 shots behind in the U.S. Open and 22 shots behind at the British Open. “I set my own expectations so high,” Spieth said. “So have I met them this year? Not yet.” He still can. So can Day, a three-time winner on the PGA Tour this year. Stenson’s victory at Royal Troon surely gave hope to players who have yet to win a major, from Sergio Garcia to Lee Westwood, from Rickie Fowler to Matt Kuchar. Baltusrol was soaked with nearly 2 inches of rain overnight, though the Lower Course was in remarkably good shape for a full day of practice on Tuesday in sweltering conditions that only add to the pressure of players trying to break through. McIlroy was especially optimistic given the length of Baltusrol, exceptionally long (7,462 yards) for a par 70 that doesn’t have a par 5 until the final two holes. He is among the top power players in the game, and his driving is aesthetically beautiful because of his balance. That wasn’t lost on McIlroy as he blasted a 345-yard drive of the first tee in the Long Drive Competition and made his way around the course. He looks ready to go, and he will find out Thursday what kind of traction he has. McIlroy was asked to describe his season in one word, and after some thought, settled on “neutral.” That’s another way of saying he has been spinning his wheels. “I feel there’s been times where I got a little bit of momentum, and then sort of got set back a little bit,” he said. “It’s been a little stop-start in a way. But it’s hard. I’m trying to stay as positive as I can. I feel like I am positive because my game is in good shape. But I guess just maybe running out of patience a little bit and trying to make it happen. “I don’t know if there’s one word to describe this year,” he said. “But I think you get a sense of how I’ve felt about the year and trying to get better and trying to get my name in the mix, and hopefully I can do that this week.” His record in the PGA Championship is in his favor. McIlroy has won the Wanamaker Trophy twice in the last four years, and he has three other finishes in the top 10. Even though he grew up in Northern Ireland, the American brand of golf suits him best. Baltusrol is big, and likely will be soft with the overnight rain, the steamy heat and the threat of thunderstorms. McIlroy won the Irish Open before a home crowd this year. That was a big deal. He still has the FedEx Cup playofs, which he has never won, and the Race to Dubai to complete the European Tour season. He struggled again when asked for a grade to his season, settling on better than a “B.” “I could change that into an A-plus on Sunday,” he said. “There’s a lot of golf left, last major of the year. I want to give it my all to get in the mix and try to win another one of these things before I have to wait another eight months.”

Blue Jays trade for OF Upton Padres get minor-league pitcher Rodriguez in transaction ASSOCIATED PRESS

PGA is last chance at major title for ‘Big hree’

The San Diego Padres traded left fielder Melvin Upton Jr. to the Toronto Blue Jays for minor-league righthander Hansel Rodriguez. The trade, which continues the Padres’ rebuilding, was announced Tuesday morning, hours before the Padres played at Toronto in the middle game of a three-game series. Upton has had a big season for the Padres, who are mired in fourth place in the NL West. He is hitting .256 with 16 home runs, 45 RBIs, 46 runs scored and 20 stolen bases. He’s hit three gameending home runs. The 19-year-old Rodriguez was 2-1 with a 3.06 ERA in six starts for the Rookie-Level Bluefield Blue Jays. Padres general manager A.J. Preller said the deal had been in the works for a few weeks. Upton has rejuvenated his career after struggling in the wake of signing a big contract with the Atlanta Braves. “He’s played well,” Preller said. “He’s really played both sides of the ball. He has a chance to be a 30-30 guy. He’s hit some big home runs in some big spots and has played tremendous defense for us in left field.” The Padres reportedly will pay all but $5 million of the $22.5 million remaining on Upton’s contract.

Melvin Upton Jr. sits in the dugout Tuesday night with his new team, the Blue Jays.

fore Tuesday night’s scheduled game. Zimmerman back with Nats • Washington reinstated first baseman Ryan Zimmerman from the disabled list after he missed 13 games because of a strained left rib cage. Zimmerman recently completed a rehab assignment at Class A Potomac, where he batted .417 with a homer and five RBIs. Zimmerman was batting only .221 with 12 homers and 38 RBIs for Washington when he got hurt. Also, the team reinstated lefthander Sammy Solis, who was sidelined 13 games because of an inflamed right knee. The 27-year-old has a 2.43 ERA in 25 games for Washington. To make roster space for Zimmerman and Solis, the NL East-leading Nationals optioned outfielder Michael A. Taylor and righthander Lucas Giolito to Triple-A Syracuse.

Rangers cut Lohse • Kyle Lohse has been designated for assignment by the Texas Rangers after only two starts. The Rangers made the move Tuesday when Nick Martinez was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock to start that night’s game against Oakland. Lohse had been the scheduled starter for the Rangers. Lohse lost both his starts and had a 12.54 ERA for Texas since being called up just before the All-Star break. He allowed 15 hits and 13 runs in 9 1/3 innings with three strikeouts and five walks. The 37-year-old righthander had gone 2-5 with a 5.06 ERA in 10 starts for Round Rock after signing a minor league deal with Texas. Lohse pitched for the Cardinals from 2008 to 20012. The Rangers also promoted top prospect Joey Gallo from Round Rock be-

Orioles reinstate Kim • Baltimore reinstated rookie outfielder Hyun Soo Kim from the 15-day disabled list and welcomed back pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez from paternity leave. Kim spent the minimum 15 days on the DL with a right hamstring strain. He returned to the lineup Tuesday night, batting second and playing left field against Colorado.

Kim is batting .329 with three homers and 11 RBIs. He signed with Baltimore in December after a successful nine-year run in the Korean Baseball Organization. Jimenez missed three days to join his wife for the delivery of the couple’s first child, a daughter. To clear room on the roster, the Orioles optioned outfielder Dariel Alvarez to Triple-A Norfolk and designated outfielder Julio Borbon for assignment. Gordon set to rejoin Marlins • Miami second baseman Dee Gordon will be eligible for reinstatement from his 80game suspension Thursday before the Marlins’ game against the Cardinals. Gordon, last year’s National League batting champ, was suspended for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy. He will be looking to help the Marlins (53-46) make a postseason push, although he will not be eligible to participate as part of his violation. “We’re going to blend him back in for sure,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “We feel like we’re capable of getting into the playofs, and if we get to the playofs he can’t play, so it’s kind of a balancing act of trying to get in and what do you do when you get there?”

example, but Delany won’t. “We have had discussions on that,” Delany said Tuesday during the second day of the Big Ten’s annual football media days. “Ever is quite a long time, but I would tell you that as we’ve looked at it, we’ve talked to our athletic directors, our faculty and presidents. “We’ve had outside legal counsel as well as experts on the Clery Act and Title IX. And we believe the facts and circumstances closest to the ground are the places those decisions ought to be made.” The Clery Act, which was passed in 1990, was named in honor of Jeanne Clery, the 19-year-old Lehigh University student who was raped and murdered in her dorm room in 1986 by a fellow student. “Under the Act, institutions must provide survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking with options such as changes to academic, transportation, or living, or working situations, and assistance in notifying local law enforcement, if the student or employee chooses to do so,” according to the Clery Center for Security on Campus. Former Baylor football coach Art Briles loved giving second chances. By second chances, of course, I mean he was willing to rehabilitate troubled youths who could play Division I football. In 2013, Briles accepted transfer Sam Ukwuachu even though he was booted from Boise State after an assault accusation by a former girlfriend. He wasn’t on the Waco campus six months before he raped a student. Ukwuachu’s for-

McIlroy, Day, Spieth look to right season

mer Boise State coach, Chris Petersen, said he “thoroughly apprised Coach Briles of the circumstances surrounding Sam’s disciplinary record and dismissal,” according to a statement he issued to ESPN. Briles claimed that Petersen never mentioned Ukwuachu’s history of violence against women. As we learned last month in the Pepper Hamilton Report that brought down Briles and Baylor President Ken Starr, Briles didn’t exactly protect the women victimized by his players. “Baylor failed to take appropriate action to respond to reports of sexual assault and dating violence reportedly committed by football players,” the Pepper Hamilton report concluded. “The choices made by football staf and athletics leadership, in some instances, posed a risk to campus safety and the integrity of the University. “In certain instances, including reports of a sexual assault by multiple football players, athletics and football personnel affirmatively chose not to report sexual violence and dating violence to an appropriate administrator outside of athletics.” The Baylor scandal is old news by now, but we shouldn’t forget about those crimes because it’s foolhardy to think Briles was the only coach looking the other way. If the Big 12 had instituted a rule banning transfers with misconduct issues, we wouldn’t have to wonder what Petersen told Briles about Ukwuachu’s violent history. Fans too often look the other way when the criminal is scoring touchdowns or making tackles for their dear

The Big Ten and every conference should ban transfers with misconduct issues. “I think just as you’ve seen these policies executed and in some cases they work, in some cases they fail to work,” Delany said Tuesday. “So we’ve got a lot of confidence in the commitment by our institutions totally committed to reducing and if not eliminating violence, sexual violence in every way. “And so we will continue to have those discussions, but we have made the decision that, based on the facts and circumstances being local, that’s the best place for these decisions to be worked out.” Rest assured that the Big Ten wants to keep up with the SEC and the Pac 12, just as Baylor wanted to keep up with the Big 12 heavyweights that had pounded the Bears for years.

Smith is working hard to change Illini’s image

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Illinois football coach Lovie Smith speaks to reporters Tuesday at Big Ten media days.

BY MARK TUPPER decatur Herald & Review

CHICAGO • In a hotel ballroom south

of the Magnificent Mile, college football optimism broke through tackles and raced into the open field this week. Thirteen of the Big Ten Conference’s 14 head coaches paraded in front of the media Monday and Tuesday and not one of them said, “Sorry, folks, we’re gonna be awful this season.” Since the 2015 season ended their returning players have all gotten bigger, stronger and faster. Graduated veterans are being replaced by superstars-in-themaking. Every school’s glass appears full, if not overflowing. Ohio State, which lost nine players to the National Football League, will field a frighteningly young team. But as positive-thinking Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer declared Tuesday, “This is as talented a group as I’ve ever had.” That’s how it is every year just before practice begins, when rosters are largely healthy, when aches of the past have healed and, in the case of new Illini coach Lovie Smith, when the won-loss record is still without a blemish. Smith and his boss, athletics director Josh Whitman, were both on hand for the Big Ten’s media shindig, and with practice set to begin next week, they agree the buzz since Smith was hired March 7 has barely settled down. Illini fans are still pouring bubbly at the Lovie Smith honeymoon. “I don’t know how much of a role I’ve played in the excitement,” Smith modestly said. “But I know when things haven’t gone exactly the way people would like, change is good. You get excited about change and seeing what can possibly be. “It’s been all good. Everything has been positive, which you would expect when you’ve never lost a game at a place. Normally that’s pretty positive, right?” Indeed. The second-guessing won’t begin until the first failure on third down. Or the first turnover. Or, heaven forbid, the first loss. Until then, Smith continues to create a wave of good feelings, the crest of which he and Whitman have been riding

all summer. Smith said he’s spent much of his summer trying to change perceptions about a football program that has struggled to generate much beyond negative headlines. “It’s been a lot of that,” he said. “I knew coming in we had to sell our brand, and Josh and I have covered quite a bit of ground speaking with our fans and our alumni, letting them know about the new day. There’s a rebirth of our program.” More than sell the Illini brand, Lovie Smith and Whitman have to reinvent it with a clear understanding that at some point, the honeymoon will end. “Eventually it will come down to what we do on the football field,” Smith said. “We realize we have to put a better product on the field.” But while there’s still a good vibe from Smith’s surprising arrival in March, why not try to persuade people to fill those many empty seats at Memorial Stadium? “The excitement has been apparent at every function we’ve been to, and we’ve been to a lot,” Smith said. “The message we’re hearing from fans is the same message our players have given us. ‘Coach, what do we need to do?’ “And for our fans the message is, ‘Come back.’ That’s also the message to our students. ‘Come back.’ There is nothing like student excitement in the stadium. We need their energy wearing orange and blue. “Don’t worry about what’s happened in the past. It’s about today.” Smith zoomed through his media obligations without a hitch Tuesday, drawing praise from his new Big Ten coaching counterparts. “I’ve heard great things about him as a person,” Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. “I believe the University of Illinois found themselves a great football coach.” And from Meyer: “Instant credibility. Name recognition. I met him yesterday. I know people who worked for him and with him. It’s great for Illinois. A lot of respect for him.” Not yet to August, Lovie Smith’s record at Illinois is still 0-0. So far, so good.

Winning would help raise funds ILLINOIS • FROM B1

But it was in March when Whitman dramatically changed the makeup and mood of the Illini athletic department by pulling the former Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach from his hat in a magic act that still seems like sleight of hand. Tuesday was a day for Whitman to validate how positively his hire is being received nationally, but it’s also just about time to switch gears and get on with additional makeovers that will have a lasting impact. Whitman said Tuesday he’s getting close to announcing facility upgrades and without naming the project, he’s talking about a remake of the Memorial Stadium’s south end zone, the horseshoe area that will finally finish of a renovation project that began after the completion of the 2006 season. That renovation gave us the new “press box” that houses luxury suites and premium seating, plus other amenities including a new video scoreboard and student seating section. But plans have been proceeding to move the horseshoe seating closer to the field and to build a multistory structure between Kirby Avenue, and the south football seats. The original design, undertaken by former AD Mike Thomas, would have included new coaching and recruiting offices, a team dining area, medical and training facilities and a new weight room. It was a massive project that would expand both up and down – digging beneath ground one or two stories while building skyward another three or four. Thomas said the project would cost in excess of $100 million. Whitman’s design has yet to reach the public. “I hope we’ll be in a position in the relatively near future to make some announcements about that and what our priorities will be and how we intend to approach some of the funding and fundraising campaigns to get some of these projects launched,” Whitman said.

To position for that, Whitman has revamped his administrative structure. Warren Hood, who oversaw the original Memorial Stadium renovation 10 years ago, has been named deputy athletic director. He’s a very solid choice as Whitman’s right-hand man. Howard Milton has been promoted to lead the I-Fund, the money-raising arm of the athletics department. Some vacancies are yet to be filled, but Whitman said Tuesday the major administrative moves are complete. Which brings everything back to Lovie Smith. Fundraising for a football facilities upgrade will be helped immensely if Smith can transfer some of the excitement he has generated directly to the performance of his football team. Nothing encourages giving like winning. While saying that wins alone will not be the barometer to gauge Smith’s football success in this first season, Whitman did say he expects victories to increase. When he was hired, Whitman wrote a letter to “Illini Nation” with the hash tag, #WeWillWin. Not only did it create clever T-shirts, it’s a motto he continues to spread through social media and when meeting with groups in public. “It’s really been exciting,” Whitman said Tuesday, standing within 20 feet of his head football coach. “I think that’s been the message for our fans and alumni around the state and around the country and, in fact, all over the world. It’s a new era for us. “To me the most important word in that three-word phrase is ‘will.’ It implies a level of expectation that we are done hoping. We’re done aspiring and we’re done wanting. We are in a phase now where we are going to start doing. “I think our fans have been very receptive to that. It’s been a very exciting few months for the program and I think it will continue to build.” All the good will Smith’s hiring has brought about is great. But now comes the heavy lifting. Winning football games is still the tough part.

Smith is working hard to change Illini’s image

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Illinois football coach Lovie Smith speaks to reporters Tuesday at Big Ten media days.

BY MARK TUPPER decatur Herald & Review

CHICAGO • In a hotel ballroom south

of the Magnificent Mile, college football optimism broke through tackles and raced into the open field this week. Thirteen of the Big Ten Conference’s 14 head coaches paraded in front of the media Monday and Tuesday and not one of them said, “Sorry, folks, we’re gonna be awful this season.” Since the 2015 season ended their returning players have all gotten bigger, stronger and faster. Graduated veterans are being replaced by superstars-in-themaking. Every school’s glass appears full, if not overflowing. Ohio State, which lost nine players to the National Football League, will field a frighteningly young team. But as positive-thinking Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer declared Tuesday, “This is as talented a group as I’ve ever had.” That’s how it is every year just before practice begins, when rosters are largely healthy, when aches of the past have healed and, in the case of new Illini coach Lovie Smith, when the won-loss record is still without a blemish. Smith and his boss, athletics director Josh Whitman, were both on hand for the Big Ten’s media shindig, and with practice set to begin next week, they agree the buzz since Smith was hired March 7 has barely settled down. Illini fans are still pouring bubbly at the Lovie Smith honeymoon. “I don’t know how much of a role I’ve played in the excitement,” Smith modestly said. “But I know when things haven’t gone exactly the way people would like, change is good. You get excited about change and seeing what can possibly be. “It’s been all good. Everything has been positive, which you would expect when you’ve never lost a game at a place. Normally that’s pretty positive, right?” Indeed. The second-guessing won’t begin until the first failure on third down. Or the first turnover. Or, heaven forbid, the first loss. Until then, Smith continues to create a wave of good feelings, the crest of which he and Whitman have been riding

all summer. Smith said he’s spent much of his summer trying to change perceptions about a football program that has struggled to generate much beyond negative headlines. “It’s been a lot of that,” he said. “I knew coming in we had to sell our brand, and Josh and I have covered quite a bit of ground speaking with our fans and our alumni, letting them know about the new day. There’s a rebirth of our program.” More than sell the Illini brand, Lovie Smith and Whitman have to reinvent it with a clear understanding that at some point, the honeymoon will end. “Eventually it will come down to what we do on the football field,” Smith said. “We realize we have to put a better product on the field.” But while there’s still a good vibe from Smith’s surprising arrival in March, why not try to persuade people to fill those many empty seats at Memorial Stadium? “The excitement has been apparent at every function we’ve been to, and we’ve been to a lot,” Smith said. “The message we’re hearing from fans is the same message our players have given us. ‘Coach, what do we need to do?’ “And for our fans the message is, ‘Come back.’ That’s also the message to our students. ‘Come back.’ There is nothing like student excitement in the stadium. We need their energy wearing orange and blue. “Don’t worry about what’s happened in the past. It’s about today.” Smith zoomed through his media obligations without a hitch Tuesday, drawing praise from his new Big Ten coaching counterparts. “I’ve heard great things about him as a person,” Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said. “I believe the University of Illinois found themselves a great football coach.” And from Meyer: “Instant credibility. Name recognition. I met him yesterday. I know people who worked for him and with him. It’s great for Illinois. A lot of respect for him.” Not yet to August, Lovie Smith’s record at Illinois is still 0-0. So far, so good.

Winning would help raise funds ILLINOIS • FROM B1

But it was in March when Whitman dramatically changed the makeup and mood of the Illini athletic department by pulling the former Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach from his hat in a magic act that still seems like sleight of hand. Tuesday was a day for Whitman to validate how positively his hire is being received nationally, but it’s also just about time to switch gears and get on with additional makeovers that will have a lasting impact. Whitman said Tuesday he’s getting close to announcing facility upgrades and without naming the project, he’s talking about a remake of the Memorial Stadium’s south end zone, the horseshoe area that will finally finish of a renovation project that began after the completion of the 2006 season. That renovation gave us the new “press box” that houses luxury suites and premium seating, plus other amenities including a new video scoreboard and student seating section. But plans have been proceeding to move the horseshoe seating closer to the field and to build a multistory structure between Kirby Avenue, and the south football seats. The original design, undertaken by former AD Mike Thomas, would have included new coaching and recruiting offices, a team dining area, medical and training facilities and a new weight room. It was a massive project that would expand both up and down – digging beneath ground one or two stories while building skyward another three or four. Thomas said the project would cost in excess of $100 million. Whitman’s design has yet to reach the public. “I hope we’ll be in a position in the relatively near future to make some announcements about that and what our priorities will be and how we intend to approach some of the funding and fundraising campaigns to get some of these projects launched,” Whitman said.

To position for that, Whitman has revamped his administrative structure. Warren Hood, who oversaw the original Memorial Stadium renovation 10 years ago, has been named deputy athletic director. He’s a very solid choice as Whitman’s right-hand man. Howard Milton has been promoted to lead the I-Fund, the money-raising arm of the athletics department. Some vacancies are yet to be filled, but Whitman said Tuesday the major administrative moves are complete. Which brings everything back to Lovie Smith. Fundraising for a football facilities upgrade will be helped immensely if Smith can transfer some of the excitement he has generated directly to the performance of his football team. Nothing encourages giving like winning. While saying that wins alone will not be the barometer to gauge Smith’s football success in this first season, Whitman did say he expects victories to increase. When he was hired, Whitman wrote a letter to “Illini Nation” with the hash tag, #WeWillWin. Not only did it create clever T-shirts, it’s a motto he continues to spread through social media and when meeting with groups in public. “It’s really been exciting,” Whitman said Tuesday, standing within 20 feet of his head football coach. “I think that’s been the message for our fans and alumni around the state and around the country and, in fact, all over the world. It’s a new era for us. “To me the most important word in that three-word phrase is ‘will.’ It implies a level of expectation that we are done hoping. We’re done aspiring and we’re done wanting. We are in a phase now where we are going to start doing. “I think our fans have been very receptive to that. It’s been a very exciting few months for the program and I think it will continue to build.” All the good will Smith’s hiring has brought about is great. But now comes the heavy lifting. Winning football games is still the tough part.

Ban total up to 85 for Russia Five from canoeing, two from pentathlon are cut on Tuesday

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Russian triple jumper Ekaterina Koneva, a former world championship silver medalist, is considering a lawsuit in civil court.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

MOSCOW • At least 85 athletes from the 387-strong Russian Olympic team announced last week have so far been barred from the Rio Games in connection with the country’s doping scandal. International federations in canoeing and modern pentathlon ruled out seven on Tuesday, including an Olympic gold medalist, following earlier rulings in swimming and rowing. Some appeals are likely. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian media that Putin had discussed the doping issue with his national security council. “The topic of the recent International Olympic Committee ruling relating to Russian athletes was raised ahead of Putin’s planned meeting tomorrow with the Russian Olympic team,” Peskov was quoted as saying. The vast majority of the Russian athletes who miss out are in track and field, where 67 athletes were ruled out when a ban on the Russian team was upheld at the Court of Arbitration for Sport last week.

More are falling foul of new rules imposed in the wake of the country’s doping scandal. While Russia avoided a blanket ban from the International Olympic Committee, it has lost several medal contenders to new IOC rules imposed Sunday banning Russia from entering athletes who previously doped. Alexander Dyachenko, an Olympic champion in 2012, was among five canoeists ruled out after being named in a recent report by World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren alleging a state-sponsored doping cover-up. McLaren’s report last week specifically detailed how Russian state oicials allegedly intervened to cover up hundreds of failed drug tests. Dyachenko won gold in the men’s double kayak 200 meters at the 2012 London Games. “The ICF will continue its strong zerotolerance stance and remove all athletes that contravene its rules in anyway,” said Simon Toulson, the International Canoe Federation’s general secretary. “If you step

out of line you won’t make the start line.” The four other banned canoeists are Alexei Korovashkov — a 2012 bronze medalist in the C2 1,000 meters event — Andrei Kraitor, Elena Anyushina and Nataliya Podolskaya. The ICF also said that Russia would not be allowed to enter boats in four events in which the excluded athletes would have raced. Therefore, Austria, Germany, Sweden and Iran are in line to receive their places. Meanwhile, the International Modern Pentathlon Union named the two Russians it had suspended as Maxim Kustov and Ilya Frolov, saying they both featured in the McLaren report. Kustov’s place in the men’s event passes to a Latvian athlete, while Frolov had only been entered for Rio as a reserve. Three Russian rowers have also been excluded. Ivan Podshivalov and Anastasia Karabelshchikova were excluded because they previously served doping bans, while Ivan Balandin from Russia’s men’s eight was implicated in the McLaren report, World Rowing said. Meanwhile, volleyball player Alexander Markin told local media he had been dropped due to a positive test earlier this year for the banned substance meldonium, even though he had not been banned. The international volleyball federation did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The head of the Russian Wrestling Federation told the R-Sport agency that twotime world champion Viktor Lebedev was ineligible because he was given a doping ban in 2006. On Monday, swimming’s world governing body FINA ruled out seven Russians including reigning world 100-meter breaststroke champion Yulia Efimova. Legal challenges are looming. Efimova’s agent has said he is preparing an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and the Russian Canoe Federation’s general secretary Irina Sirayeva said that the five banned could follow suit. “The intention to defend the athletes is there,” she told R-Sport. Triple jumper Ekaterina Koneva — a former world championship silver medalist — told local media she was considering a lawsuit in civil court. There was good news for Russia as its team of 18 shooters received approval to compete from the sport’s international federation. Also, Russia also looks set to field a full team of four players in Olympic badminton, the Russian Badminton Federation said Tuesday, citing assurances from the Badminton World Federation. Previously, archery and equestrian sport’s world governing bodies said they had no objection to the Russians entered in their sports. Lists of Russian athletes approved by international federations must still be approved by CAS arbiters who can reject athletes not tested outside Russia. The IOC refused to accept testing done by Russian agencies because of evidence that the process was corrupted.

NOTEBOOK Federer will miss Olympics and rest of tennis season Roger Federer says he will miss the Rio Olympics and the rest of the tennis season to protect his surgically repaired left knee. Federer writes Tuesday on his Facebook page that he will skip the Summer Games, where the tennis competition starts next week, and has been advised by doctors to remain sidelined for the remainder of 2016. Federer says he needs “more extensive rehabilitation” after arthroscopic knee surgery in February. That was the irst operation of Federer’s lengthy and accomplished career. The owner of a record 17 Grand Slams titles turns 35 on Aug. 8. He hasn’t played since losing to Milos Raonic in the Wimbledon semiinals early this month. Federer fell awkwardly during that match and said at the time he wasn’t sure how badly he might have been injured. U.S. women basketball continue tour • The U.S. women’s basketball team continues its pre-Olympic tour with a three-city exhibition series that wraps up Sunday at Madison Square Garden. The Americans will face France on Wednesday at the University of Delaware, play Canada on Friday in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and host Australia on Sunday in New York before heading to the Rio Olympics. “We really want to win the next three games, but at the same time, we need to ind out before we get on that plane to go to Rio, what we have,” U.S. coach Geno Auriemma said. “What can we count on? What’s going to be our strength? “What are the things that we’re going to build on that are going to sustain us down there? And that’s what these next three games are going to be all about.” The U.S. will play its irst game at the Olympics on Aug. 7 against Senegal. Other teams in the Americans group are Canada, China, Serbia and Spain. The Americans will be trying to win a sixth consecutive gold medal, the most by any women’s team sport. They’ve won 41 straight Olympic contests dating back to the bronze medal game in 1992. Athletes village problems • Blocked toilets. Leaky pipes. Exposed electrical wiring. Suice it to say the athletes’ village at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro had a rough opening over the weekend, with the contingent from Australia refusing to move in. On Monday, the head of the Rio 2016 organizing committee insisted the accommodations will be fully ready for incoming teams within 48 hours. “There are some adjustments that we are dealing with and that will be resolved in a short while,” Carlos Arthur Nuzman said. “Every Olympic Village, because of their magnitude, needs some adjustments until it becomes perfect,” he continued. “The important thing is that everything will be resolved before the Games, without disturbing the athletes.” The village was built to house more than 17,000 athletes in 31 buildings. Members of 66 national teams arrived there on Sunday and some were satisied with the accommodations. In Building 23, the Australians noticed electrical shorting and a strong smell of gas in some apartments. “The village is simply not safe or ready,” said Kitty Chiller, the team’s leader. Chiller said she would reassess the situation this week. With the Games set to begin on Aug. 5, American and British sports oicials expressed conidence the Brazilians can make needed ixes. “As is the case with every Games, we’re working with the local organizers to address minor issues and make sure the village is ready for Team USA athletes,” the U.S. Olympic Committee said in a statement on Rio 2016’s website. Two from India banned • Two Indian competitors have proclaimed their innocence after testing positive for banned steroids just days before they were to leave for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. Wrestler Narsingh Yadav, who was to represent India in the 74-kilogram category at the Olympics, said his food supplements were spiked, causing the positive test. On Tuesday, shotput medal hope Inderjeet Singh, who had won a bronze at the 2014 Asian Games, was told by India’s National Anti-Doping Agency that he had tested positive for a banned steroid.

2016 Hyundai Sonata 2016 HYUNDAI SONATA

After last year’s major overhaul, midsize sedan makes notable tweaks Having undergone a complete makeover in 2015, you might think the Hyundai Sonata would be happy to skate in 2016. Nope. This Alabama-built family sedan is tasting success — through the first half of 2016, Sonata finds itself among the top-10 best-selling cars in America — and it, clearly, wants more. As the old saying goes, it’s lonely at the top, but you eat better. So, in a move to Dan Wiese close the gap with Automotive Writer midsize sedans ahead of it in sales, including the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Chevy Malibu, Sonata for 2016 undergoes an additional, albeit minor, cosmetic tweak and, more importantly, adds safety enhancements, infotainment upgrades and performance acumen. Last year, Sonata, offered now in SE, Sport, Eco and Limited trims, jettisoned its goofy grinning grille, displayed from 2011 through 2014, in favor of a more conservative, less polarizing front end. That more mature image in 2016 gets tweaked on the Limited model, which adopts the more aggressive Sport’s front bumper. More importantly, Sonatas equipped with Forward Collision Warning add a proactive Automatic Emergency Braking function, while every Sonata adopts some new aluminum suspension components — steering knuckle

DRIVE FORMAT: Front-wheel drive BASE PRICE: SE: $22,585; Sport: $24,235; Eco: $24,560; Sport 2.0T: $29,760; Limited: $28,185; Limited 2.0T: $34,910 PRICE AS DRIVEN: $31,660; Sport 2.0T with $1,900 Premium Pkg. (Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, keyless entry/start, heated sport seats, dual-zone climate, more) ENGINES: 2.4 GDI: 2.4-liter I-4; 2.0T: 2.0-liter turbo I-4; Eco: 1.6-liter turbo I-4

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata adds such available perks as Automatic Emergency Braking and upgraded infotainment equipment.

HORSEPOWER: 2.4 GDI: 185 at 6000 rpm; 2.0T: 245 at 6000 rpm; Eco: 178 at 5500 rpm TORQUE: 2.4 GDI: 178 lb.-ft. at 4000 rpm; 2.0T: 260 lb.-ft. at 1350 rpm; Eco: 195 lb.-ft. at 1500 rpm REQUIRED FUEL: Regular, all engines TRANSMISSION: 2.4/2.0: Six-speed automatic; 1.6: seven-speed dual-clutch automatic EPA MPG: 2.4 GDI: 25 city/36 hwy/29 combined (25/38/30 in SE trim); 2.0T: 23/32/26 (21/31/25 in Limited trim); Eco: 28/38/32 WHERE BUILT: Montgomery, Ala.

and lower control arm in front, upper control arm and assist arms in back — to reduce unsprung weight for improved overall handling. We’ll take their word for it. Happily, in our weeklong drive of a 2016 Sonata 2.0T Sport we never encountered a panic situation that kicked in the auto braking function and our seat-of-the-pants analysis of handling athleticism didn’t register a big difference. The 2015 Sonata handled well and the 2016 does, too. Regarding tech toys, Sonata’s interior adds Hyundai’s 7-inch color touchscreen Display Audio system, Android Auto and rearview camera system. Finally, Sport models can be had with a new “Value Edition Package,”

a $950 option that adds, among other things, chrome door handles, a sunroof, proximity key with push-button start, hands-free “Smart Trunk” opening and cabin upgrades like sport seats with leather bolsters and cloth inserts, heated front seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Carried over is Sonata’s all-fourbangers engine lineup. Standard in SE, Sport and Limited is a 185-hp, 2.4-liter I-4 that mates to a six-speed automatic. Eco gets a 1.6-liter, 178-hp turbo I-4, a seven-speed automatic and an impressive EPA combined city/hwy rating of 32 mpg. We drove the Sport 2.0T, with its 245hp, 2.0-liter turbo four and six-speed

automatic, a drivetrain also available on Limited. We found our Sport a midsize family sedan that’s marvelously roomy and very pleasant to drive. Look out Camry and Accord. Sonata, obviously, isn’t going away. Dan Wiese is a freelance automotive writer. You can e-mail him at: drivingwithdan@gmail.com

What’s better than beer with food?

Beer IN food. RECIPES ON PAGE L4

BY DANIEL NEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

In Paradise, it is said, the rivers run golden with beer. Fields of bright green hops bow and sway with the gentle breezes. The inhabitants hoist their steins high, steins that are miraculously ever-filled with ale. Little trays of peanuts and pretzels waft by on clouds.

• Guinness Ice Cream With Chocolate-Covered Pretzels • Beer-Braised Turkey Tacos • Berghof Beer Bread • Old-Style Chunky Beef and Beer Stew

And the food? Much of the food is made with beer, too. But cooking with beer is not something

that the rest of us — those who live in the Paradise suburbs and beyond — do very often. The reason is simple: Beer is generally bitter. But there are plenty of ways to work with this bitterness, or work around it, to add a startling amount of depth to a meal, and nearly endless variations of flavor. By using See BEER • Page L4

Wreaths made with candy are even sweeter DANIEL NEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

As a child, Archie Wayne III would watch his mother and grandmother use colorful ribbons to painstakingly tie pieces of wrapped candy to metal rings. The results were brightly colored, festive, edible wreaths.

“I used to watch my mother sell it to make extra money. These things really helped out at a lot of Christmases,” the younger Wayne said. Now, the 27-year-old entrepreneur is taking this family tradition and modernizing it. “I know how to design websites, know how to make fliers, know how to write press releases. I designed the logo and came up with the name, and here I am,” Wayne said.

The name he came up with is SweetWreaths. com. For a price beginning at $29, he will make an irresistibly colorful wreath out of practically any candy (or candies) Wayne you choose. The candies have to be small — no bigger than a fun-size candy bar — and must be wrapped in paper or plastic that can be tied to a wreath. No individual M&Ms. But small bags of M&Ms? Sure.

Often, a Christmas wreath is made from pink-and-white peppermints tied with pink and white ribbons. Halloween wreaths are made with orange and black ribbons. But the wreaths can be made with any color ribbon and any kind of candy. Wayne has made SweeTart wreaths, Tootsie Roll wreaths, J.B. FORBES • P-D

Chardonnay from Down Under BY GAIL APPLESON • Special to the Post-Dispatch

When it comes to wine, sauvignon blanc is what put New Zealand on the map. These pungent white wines continue to win fans with their distinctive herbaceous, grassy and exotic flavors and razor sharp crispness. While sauvignon blanc dominates New Zealand’s white wine production, the country is also home to unique chardonnay. Although the selection of these chardonnay wines is limited in our market, some can be found. Below is an example of a New Zealand chardonnay compared with one from the country’s down under neighbor, Australia. Nobilo 2015 Chardonnay Marlborough, New Zealand Bought • Dierbergs Brentwood Pointe, 8450 Eager Road, in July for $11.49 Description • If you like New Zealand-style sauvignon blanc, give this unoaked chardonnay a try. The Nobilo family was one of the pioneers of New Zealand’s sauvignon blanc, and this chardonnay shares some of the same distinctive characteristics. Fresh, crisp and tart, it tastes of pineapple and other tropical fruit lavors combined with zesty citrus and herbaceous and grassy notes. It would go well with seafood, chicken and green vegetables.

Lismore Range 2015 Reserve Chardonnay South Eastern Australia Bought • Friar Tuck, 9053 Watson Road, in July for $11.99 Description • Named a “Best Buy” by Wine Enthusiast, this is an easy-drinking chardonnay that’s much diferent in style than the Nobilo. It’s a softer wine that’s fresh and fruity, tasting of stone fruit and melon. This wine is just lightly oaked, giving it a hint of vanilla and spice. It has good acidity and ends with a nice, clean inish. It’s a good match for ish, white meat and salads.

DiGiorno Artisan Style Melts We know DiGiorno knows how to do frozen pizza, but I was curious to see if DiGiorno could do frozen pizza in a microwave. Turns out, these Artisan Style Melts, which are almost more like bruschetta, come out perfectly from the microwave. In fact, the crust is just as crispy as when you bake them (another option). They come in four varieties: Spicy Sausage Pomodoro, Quattro Formaggi (my favorite), Pepperoni Speciale and Chicken Bruschetta. And the toppings are almost overlowing on some of the varieties.

Sharon Klein tops her wales with plenty of fruit, including blueberries, peaches and strawberries.

BY PAMELA SELBERT Special to the Post-Dispatch

SHARON’S SPECIAL WAFFLES Yield: 6 wales

Sharon Klein says she “comes from a long line of good cooks who gave her a love of cooking.” Like many Depression-era women, Klein’s mother was “resourceful,” she says, preparing meals from whatever was ripe in her vegetable garden. Dishes were generally simple, such as meatless vegetable soup with dumplings, or chicken and dumplings, but also frequently involved “cream sauces and animal fat.” That changed, she says with a smile, when her father was diagnosed with high cholesterol. Then the cooking “evolved into a healthier style.” As an adult, Klein “has given a lot of thought to food — and to preparing healthy meals.” Her husband appreciates the effort, she adds. The two met a couple of years after she’d graduated from college. Back from a three-month trip to Europe, she came to St. Louis “looking for a job,” and was working as a cocktail waitress in the old Gaslight Square when a mutual friend introduced Klein, a “small town Catholic,” to her attorney future husband, a St. Louisan, who is Jewish. She jokes that “for a long time” they seemed an unlikely match to many, but as of next spring they will have been married 50 years. Do you and your husband share cooking duties? No! He’s all about law, golf and stocks. But he loves my cooking, and we eat at home a lot — probably more than most people we know. What sort of cooking do you enjoy? I’ve become very nutrition conscious. We try to cut back on red meat and sweets. When I prepare meat it’s usually grilled. And I serve a lot of

vegetables and salads, and not many cream sauces now. Do you have any “go-to” dishes? Yes, several. I like to chop whatever vegetables I have on hand — carrots, broccoli, celery, onions, spinach, snow peas, maybe corn — and saute them

all together in a little light olive oil to serve over brown rice with a little soy sauce. Delicious! Or I make a pasta primavera using sun-dried tomatoes in oil and broccoli florets cooked al dente topped with a little grated fresh Parmesan.

You had an odd coincidence with one of your favorite recipes — could you explain? Yes, I found a recipe, probably 40 years ago, for “mock cheese souffle” in a cookbook of celebrity recipes called “Look Who’s Cooking.” It calls for grated cheddar, milk, eggs, salt, dry mustard and a little thyme poured over buttered, cubed bread, and when baked, it bubbles up into a mock souffle. It’s been a family favorite forever; my kids loved it even when they were little. Then after my daughter married her first husband, Jennings Randolph III, son of Jay Randolph Jr., the sportscaster, I happened to notice that the recipe we’d been enjoying for so long had been submitted by Sen. and Mrs. Jennings Randolph of West Virginia, Jay’s parents! You enjoy volunteering — what sort of work do you do? I take part in a program called Reading Is Fundamental. Volunteers are assigned to various elementary schools in St. Louis city, where they go into a classroom and read to the students. Each volunteer visits his or her particular school once a week for three weeks. After each session the students go to the school library, where they choose a free book to take home. I’m also involved with Reading Buddies, a one-on-one program, at Dewey School in the city. How did you come up with the idea for the recipe you’re presenting? My grandchildren from New York love waffles, so whenever they visit I make waffles. I have a Chef’s Choice International waffle iron that makes a plate-size waffle of five little connected heart shapes. Several years ago I loaded the counter with every condiment I could think of that sounded good on waffles, and Anna, especially, loved the waffle bar!

Health care system emphasizes that ‘good food is healing’ MERCY HOSPITAL ST. LOUIS

BY ALANNA KELLOGG special to the Post-dispatch

Q • The monster cookies at Mercy are out of this world — big as a salad plate, moist and delicious. — Francene Guilfoy, Kirkwood A • Yesterday’s assembly-line hospital food is a thing of the past, says Donald Grace, executive chef at St. Louis-based Mercy, the country’s seventhlargest Catholic health care system. “We understand that good food is healing,” he says. “If the food doesn’t taste good, patients won’t eat and won’t get well.” It can’t be forgotten, he says, that Mercy is a Catholic

and a passion for food through intern programs at local culinary schools L’Ecole Culinaire and Hickey College. Five years ago, patient, staff and visitors still skewed toward less-healthful food choices. Today, that’s switched: About 60 percent choose more healthful dishes. Incentives help; Mercy employees get a 20 percent discount on healthful dishes. Mercy baking supervisor Lloyd Allard says that Mercy’s Monster Cookies aren’t that sweet. “They have a wholesome taste, like a health bar or something. They’re good all-occasion cookies.” Mercy has four locations in St.

ministry. “Mercy values guide how to do the right thing the right way.” Three years back, Mercy switched to hotel-like madeto-order room service that offers patient choice without sacrificing kitchen efficiency. It takes special staff and training, he says, to deliver freshly cooked food with the precision of a production line. Grace often sources young talent with good organizational skills

Louis plus some 46 hospitals in Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma. Monster Cookies are available in the cafeteria and cafés at Mercy Hospital St. Louis near Interstate 64 (Highway 40) and Ballas Road, what many of us still call St. John’s Hospital.

Stews, braises cook of the bitterness BEER • FROM L1

a few simple tricks, you can negate the bitterness and coax the beer to blend harmoniously with the dish. You can even make beer ice cream. Perhaps the most common method of cooking with beer and exploring new horizons of taste is to simmer tough pieces of meat gently in it for a long time. Stews and braises slowly cook off the bitterness while retaining the essential flavor of the beer. At the same time, much like wine, it also enhances the more appealing aspects the meat. The best-known example of a beer stew is Carbonnades à la Flamande, which was brought to this country almost singlehandedly by Julia Child. It is a beef stew, heady with onions and the floral scent of Belgian beer. For many Americans it represented the first time they saw that beer, when treated in a specific way, can almost become sweet. It is such a standard dish, and so well known, that I chose not to make it. But I made something similar, Old-Style Chunky Beef and Beer Stew With Onions, Peppers and Tomatoes.

Granted, the name is not the best. But the dish itself is sublime, a subtle mixture of thoughtfully prepared ingredients that blend irresistibly into a vibrant whole. It has beef, obviously, cubes of chuck, that are simmered in a dark beer. The onions, peppers and tomatoes listed in the title add more sweetness than bite, with a single tablespoon of brown sugar to fully overcome the lingering bitterness. The other ingredients — thyme, bay leaves, cloves, garlic — only add their aromatic magic. Next, I used beer to make a braise. A braise is very much like a stew, except the meat is not entirely submerged in the liquid; the beer only goes partly up the side of the meat. In this case, the meat was turkey and the dish was Beer-Braised Turkey Tacos. The beer was Negra Modelo, a dark brew from Mexico. You begin with dark meat, both for flavor and its ability to stand up to braising. Turkey drumsticks or thighs (I used drumsticks) are browned and then cooked in a mixture of beer, water, onions, garlic, oregano and tomato. Three extra ingredients make all the difference: a hot jalapeño pepper, a mild and flavorful ancho pepper (it’s the dried version

of a poblano) and a stick of cinnamon. The peppers and cinnamon create a warmth, rather than a heat, that suffuses the meat and sauce and brings it all to life. Be sure to serve it on corn tortillas. The corn is a perfect foil for the still-assertive flavor of turkey that has been tempered by its extraordinary sauce. Next, I made a loaf of bread. Bread is an obvious example of cooking with beer because, when you think about it, beer is basically just liquid bread. I have made beer bread several different ways in the past, but my favorite is the way they used to make it at the famous Berghoff restaurant in Chicago. Depending on the type of beer or ale you use, you can make the beer flavor of the bread strong or mild, according to your taste. My taste is for it to be mild. I like a hint of beeriness to the bread, not an overwhelming dose, so I used a Pilsner in my version. Stronger ales lead to a loaf that tastes like chewy beer, not beer-kissed bread. Either way, it is phenomenal toasted or just with butter. It makes a great bread for meat sandwiches, too. But jam? You’re better off spreading that on a different loaf of bread.

I could not end my adventures in beerbased cooking without dessert. I made Guinness Ice Cream with Chocolate-Covered Pretzels. Some ice cream parlors I could name serve Guinness ice cream that does not actually have any Guinness in it. They simply make a caramel flavor and slap the Guinness name on it to cash in on the cachet. But true Guinness ice cream is made with actual Guinness stout. And it tastes like it; you get a definite sense of ice cream that has been made with Guinness. And for all the descriptions of Guinness being creamy, it still is a little bit bitter. It is a pleasant ice cream, but not much more than that — until you add the chocolate-covered pretzels. The salt, the crunch, the sweetness of the chocolate, these all take the Guinness ice cream into the stratosphere. It’s one of those rare, perfect combinations. But then, beer always did go well with pretzels. Daniel Neman • 314-340-8133 Food writer @dnemanfood on Twitter dneman@post-dispatch.com

BEER-BRAISED TURKEY TACOS Yield: 12 tacos 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided 2 (1-pound) bone-in turkey thighs or drumsticks, skin and fat removed Salt and pepper 4 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced 1 medium white onion, cut into 1-inch dice, plus minced white onion for serving 1 large oregano sprig 1 large jalapeño, stemmed, seeded and sliced crosswise ¼-inch thick

1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped 1 ancho chile, stemmed, seeded and coarsely chopped 1 cinnamon stick 12 ounces Mexican dark beer, such as Negra Modelo 1 cup water 12 corn tortillas 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted Cilantro sprigs

1. In a Dutch oven or large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season the turkey with salt and pepper and cook over moderately high heat until richly browned all over, about 8 minutes. Transfer the turkey to a plate. 2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pot, along with the garlic, diced onion, oregano and jalapeño and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Add the tomato, ancho and cinnamon stick and cook, stirring, until the tomato releases its juices. 3. Return the turkey to the pot, add the beer and water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat, turning once, until the turkey thighs are tender, about 1 hour. Transfer the turkey to a plate and let cool. Discard the oregano sprig and cinnamon stick and boil the sauce over high heat until reduced and thick, about 12 minutes. 4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Wrap the tortillas in foil and bake about 8 minutes, until softened and heated through. Meanwhile, remove the turkey meat from the bone and shred it. Transfer the sauce to a food processor and puree. Return the sauce to the pot and stir in the shredded turkey. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the turkey onto the tortillas. Top with minced onion, sesame seeds and cilantro sprigs, and serve.

OLD-STYLE CHUNKY BEEF AND BEER STEW WITH ONIONS, PEPPERS AND TOMATOES Yield: 6 to 8 servings 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, or more if needed 3 pounds boneless beef chuck, cut into 2-inch cubes Salt and pepper 2 large onions, peeled and diced small 3 red bell peppers (or a mix of red and green), cored, seeded and diced large 3 tablespoons minced garlic

1½ cups beef stock 16 ounces dark beer, or more if needed 2 cups whole canned tomatoes, drained and roughly chopped 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar 2 teaspoons dried thyme 1 bay leaf 2 whole cloves, crushed

1. In a Dutch oven or other large, heavy pot with a lid, heat the oil over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking. Dry the meat well with paper towels and sprinkle it generously with salt and pepper. Place meat in the pot in a single layer, in batches if necessary to avoid crowding, and brown well on all sides, about 10 minutes total. Transfer the pieces to a platter as they are done. 2. Pour of the fat or add oil to the pot as needed so you have a total of about 2 tablespoons in the pot. Add the onions and bell peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent, 7 to 9 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. 3. Return the meat to the pot along with any juices that have accumulated on the platter, then add the stock, beer, tomatoes, brown sugar, thyme, bay leaf and cloves, and stir well to combine. (If the ingredients are not completely covered, add enough extra beer to cover them.) Bring to a simmer over medium heat and skim any scum of the top of the liquid. Cover the pot, reduce the heat to low, and simmer gently until the meat is fork-tender, 1½ to 2 hours. When the stew is done, skim any scum from the top of the liquid.

GUINNESS ICE CREAM WITH CHOCOLATE-COVERED PRETZELS

Note: Lighter beers, such as Pilsners and lagers, will create a milder lavor. Heavier beers, such as red ales or dark beers, will make a heartier bread. 1. In the bowl of a standing mixer itted with the paddle attachment, place the all-purpose lour, whole-wheat lour, yeast, salt and brown sugar. Mix on low speed. Add the beer and oil, and mix on low to form a cohesive dough. Turn of the mixer, scrape down the paddle and replace with the dough hook. Knead the dough on low for 10 minutes, adding allpurpose lour as necessary by the tablespoon for desired consistency. The dough should leave the sides of the bowl and cling to the dough hook. (This can also all be done by hand — mix dry ingredients with a whisk, stir in the liquid ingredients with a sturdy spoon and knead by hand). 2. Turn out the dough onto a surface lightly dusted with all-purpose lour, and knead to shape into a ball. Lightly oil a large bowl. Put in the dough, turning once so the oiled side is on top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, 1¼ hours to 1½ hours. 3. Turn out dough on a surface lightly dusted with all-purpose lour, and knead to remove any air pockets. Shape into an oblong loaf and place in an oiled 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. Cover with a lint-free, clean kitchen towel that has been wetted and wrung almost dry. Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. 4. While the loaf is rising the second time, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 5. Bake 40 minutes, until the top is browned. Transfer from the pan to a wire rack. Do not slice until completely cool.

Pour the mixture into the saucepan and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly until it coats the back of a spoon, about 6 minutes; do not let it boil. Pour the custard into a medium bowl set in a large bowl illed with ice water. Let stand until the custard is cold, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes. 3. Pour the custard into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions (this may have to be done in 2 batches).

candy bar wreaths, bubble gum wreaths. For one wedding, he made a wreath with three types of candy, including only redcolored Jolly Ranchers. The person who gave the wreath as a gift wanted to match the colors of the wedding. He brought it to the wedding himself — a friend ordered it just the night before — and “it got really good reviews,” he said. During one flu season, he got an order for a wreath made with Ricola cough drops. And in the future he will be making

wreaths featuring organic candy from Yummy Earth. An 8-inch wreath will generally have about 100 pieces of candy on it, he said. About 125 to 150 pieces will fit on a 10-inch wreath. And a 12-inch wreath can approach 200 pieces of candy. With all this candy around, the temptation to indulge constantly must be fierce, right? “I don’t eat candy,” he said with a laugh. “I never was a candy guy. I was always a steak-and-potatoes kind of guy. I like a plate of food. That’s probably how I am able to manage so well.” He used to put the wreaths together with friends around, and they would just keep eating the candy. “They wouldn’t even realize it.

Smoking own ribs comes easy GAS GRILL SMOKED RIBS

Grill meat over indirect heat using wet wood chips

Yield: 6 to 8 servings 4 racks St. Louis ribs, about 3 pounds per Soaked wood chips, such as apple or hickory slab Favorite barbecue sauce, optional ½ cup apple-cider vinegar Beer or apple cider ¼ cup St. Louis Rib Rub (see below) or favorite spice rub Note: Make a rib rub of 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons smoked paprika, 2 tablespoons kosher salt, 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar, 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1 tablespoon freshly ground Worcestershire black pepper, 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon sweet paprika, 2 teaspoons dry mustard and ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper. (The rub can be stored in an airtight container for up to 6 months.) 1. Build a charcoal ire or preheat gas grill. Remove silver skin from back of ribs, if desired. Set up the grill for indirect heat and if using wood chips, place soaked chips directly on charcoal, or in smoking box of gas grill. 2. Blot the ribs dry with paper towels. Brush the ribs lightly with the apple-cider vinegar over both the front and back of ribs. Set aside for 5 minutes. Sprinkle ribs liberally on both sides with rib rub and let sit, covered lightly, for 15 minutes. 3. Place ribs (bone side down) in the center of the cooking grate or in a rib holder/rack, making sure they are not over a direct lame. Grill covered (at about 250 degrees, if your grill has a thermometer) for about 3—3½ hours or until meat is tender and the rack bends easily but doesn’t break. Note: If you smoke at 250 degrees, only a little of the bone will pull back from the ends of the rib bones. If you cook the ribs at 300 degrees, much more of the ends of the bones will be exposed as more of the fat will be rendered from the ribs. 4. Leave ribs untended for the irst 60 minutes — this means no peeking; very important when using wood chips. Check ribs after an hour and then every 30 minutes or so. If the ribs start to burn on the edges, stack them on top of one another in the center of the grill and lower your ire/heat slightly. 5. Twenty minutes before serving, un-stack ribs, if necessary, and brush with barbecue sauce. You can also brush with a mixture of barbecue sauce and beer or apple cider — this becomes a “mop” that is thinner than traditional barbecue sauce. 6. Remove ribs from grill and let rest 10 minutes before cutting into individual or 2 to 3 rib portions. Warm remaining sauce in a saucepan and serve on the side, if desired.

more easily fit on the grill. Spareribs are cut from the belly or side of the pig. They are longer and fattier than back ribs. Once you decide which rib to buy, there are a few things to remember. First, make sure that each slab weighs at least 3 pounds and that the ribs have a nice layer of meat covering the bone. Slabs of ribs that are factory-cut often have “bone shine,” or areas of the rack where the blade hit the bone and cut off all the meat, exposing the bone. Second, buy the highest quality, freshest product available. If you have a local butcher who cuts the meat, frequent his or her shop. If you don’t have a local butcher, go to a high-volume grocery store that rotates with fresh product every day. Be sure to look at the expiration date on the label and give your purchases the oldfashioned smell test. If it smells off, it is probably old. I prefer buying ribs that are cryovac-ed as they are generally the freshest choice. In this recipe, I am cooking these ribs at a more traditional smoking temperature of 250 degrees because every backyard griller wants to approximate the barbecue of the competition circuit at least once. But more often, I smoke the ribs at a higher temperature of 300 to 325 degrees. Both work well, but you get a crispier, more roasted flavor at the higher temperature as the fat renders out completely. It’s really a question of style and taste as both are good. I use soaked wood chips regardless of the temperature or the fuel. Because the wood is the final flavoring element, it is as important as the quality of the meat and the rub. If you are using a gas grill, you can make a smoker box out of heavy-duty aluminum foil and fill it with wet wood chips as the gas grill preheats with all burners on high. The chips will start to smoke and smolder and will continue even as you reduce the heat to a medium-low indirect heat. Make sure to place the chips in the upper-left hand corner of the grill under the cooking grates. If you place the chips on the cooking grates, they are so far from the heat element that they won’t smoke. Also, wet the chips so that they will smoke and not erupt into flames. On a charcoal grill, simply toss a handful of wet wood chips on both sides of the grayashed charcoal when you put the ribs on the grill. And, don’t forget, ribs can only be smoked using indirect heat. The final thing to know is that the best way to test for doneness is to make sure that the meat has receded from the end of the bones. You should be able to bend the rack without breaking it in pieces. The best ribs should be tender but have a little chew left.

Kale chips inspire baked barbecue zucchini chips

M 1 • WEDnESDAy • 07.27.2016

CRISPY BUTTERMILK SOAKED PORK CHOPS Yield: 4 to 6 servings

BY MELISSA D’ARABIAN Associated Press

It all started with the kale chip. I fell in love the texture of the thick, green leaf made thin and so delicately crisp by baking that it felt almost flaky, with just enough thickness to impart a satisfying little crunch before nearly dissolving into salty-grassy goodness on the tongue. And I wasn’t alone: health-conscious eaters crowned the kale chip its unofficial sweetheart and suddenly they were available not just in health-food stores, but in mini-marts, airports and gas stations. Which led me to ask: What else might we chip-up in a dehydrator or oven? And what other flavors might we add? My daughter’s all-time favorite potato chip is barbecue flavored, so that became my mission — a baked veggie chip that mimicked the barbecue potato chip flavor, with all natural ingredients. In mixing up various spice rubs, we were surprised by how much brown sugar we needed to emulate that characteristic flavor. And then we struck gold: what if we used a naturally sweet vegetable, which would allow us to reduce the added sugar down to nearly nothing? And thus, the baked barbecue zucchini chip was born. It was a huge hit with the BBQ-potato-chip-lovers in my house. And here’s the really good news: You don’t need any special equipment to make this happen.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

If you have a dehydrator, great — you probably already have a strong veggiechip game going. For the rest of us: your oven on low will work great for this recipe. And, you don’t even need a mandoline for slicing. I have one, but almost never use it ever since nipping off a bit of finger years ago on an episode of “Ten Dollar Dinners.” Use a knife and slice relatively thin, and that’s fine. In fact, the slices are better and sturdier when they aren’t too thin anyway. I do recommend using a baking rack, only because the chips will dry out faster and more evenly. But, even this is optional equipment — just use parchment paper on a tray, cook a little longer, and flip the chips halfway through cook time if you don’t have a rack. Kale chip, move over.

BAKED BARBECUE-FLAVORED ZUCCHINI CHIPS Yield: 4 servings 2 teaspoons smoked paprika 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon chipotle or ancho chili powder 2 large zucchini (or plain chili powder) 2 teaspoons olive oil 1 teaspoon brown sugar Note: Instead of a baking rack in step 3, you may instead line the baking trays with parchment paper, in which case lip the chips about 1 hour into cooking; chips will require about 30 extra minutes of bake time. 1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together the smoked paprika, chili powder, brown sugar and salt and set aside. 2. Slice the zucchini thinly, about 1/16th of an inch, but not paper thin. You can use a mandolin, but slicing by hand is just ine. Don’t worry if you can’t get the slices super thin. Place the zucchini slices in a large bowl and blot with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. 3. Drizzle with olive oil and toss the slices to coat. Sprinkle with the spice mixture and toss to coat. Line 2 or 3 large baking sheets with baking racks, and spray briely with nonstick spray. Spread out zucchini slices and bake until dry and slightly crispy, about 2 hours. Allow to cool on rack before removing. Best eaten the same day. Per serving: 54 calories; 3g fat; no cholesterol; 513mg sodium; 7g carbohydrate; 2g iber; 5g sugar; 2g protein.

1½ cups buttermilk 2 tablespoons chipotle hot sauce (optional) ¾ teaspoon kosher salt 2 garlic cloves, smashed well 1½ pounds thin (about 1/3rd-½-inch thick) boneless pork chops ¾ cup panko bread crumbs ¾ cup seasoned dry bread crumbs 5 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil 1/3 cup inely chopped parsley 4 to 6 lemon wedges 1. In a pie plate or resealable plastic bag, combine the buttermilk, hot sauce, salt and garlic, whisking the mixture in the bowl or shaking the mixture in the bag until the salt is dissolved. Add the chops, making sure they are submerged in the liquid, and marinate them, covered or sealed, in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours. 2. On a sheet of parchment combine panko and dry bread crumbs. Working with one chop at a time, lift it out of the marinade, letting the excess marinade drip of; coat the chop well with the bread crumbs. 3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1½ tablespoons of the oil over high heat until it is hot. Reduce the heat to medium and add half the chops. Cook for 1½ minutes, add another tablespoon of the oil and turn the chops over, cooking them on the second side for another 1½ minutes or until they are barely pink inside. Transfer the chops to a plate; cover with foil to keep them warm. Repeat the procedure with the remaining oil and chops. 4. Top each portion with some chopped parsley; serve with a wedge of lemon.

Flavor pork chops with a buttermilk marinade BY SARA MOLTON Associated Press

Summertime and the living is easy. Dinners can be casual, thrown together at the last minute. But when the kids start heading back to school, it’s time to switch gears; dinner usually needs to be planned and punctual. This recipe fits nicely into that back-to-school tempo. It requires five minutes in the morning whipping up a buttermilk marinade for the chops and 10 minutes to cook in the evening. The chops in question are crosscut slices of pork loin, also known as boneless pork chops. I recommend the really thin ones, no more than halfan-inch thick, which helps the marinade work its deep magic. This cut of meat is very lean. ASSOCIATED PRESS That’s good because Crispy buttermilk-soaked pork the chops are low in chops. saturated fat; that’s bad because the lack of fat translates into a lack of moisture and a lack of flavor. But not to worry — this recipe’s buttermilk marinade picks up the slack. I was inspired by our friends below the Mason-Dixon line, who like to soak their chicken in buttermilk before frying it. Then I added salt, which helps protein retain liquid while deeply flavoring it. Finally, I threw in smashed garlic cloves and some chipotle hot sauce. The hot sauce provides a tiny bit of the advertised heat along with some lip-smacking smokiness. (If your family is anti-spicy, leave it out.) The chops are coated in a mixture of panko bread crumbs, which provide crunch, and seasoned bread crumbs, which glue all the bread crumbs together. Top with some chopped parsley and serve with a wedge of lemon. It’s important to cook the chops until they’re just pink, otherwise, they’ll be tough.

Relying on a 3-3 split in spades with the queen onside was not appealing. It seemed much better to try to develop the club suit for spade discards. Acting on this plan, South crossed to his hand with a trump at trick two and led a low club to dummy’s king, ducked smoothly by East. Hoping that West held the ace of clubs, declarer cashed dummy’s ace of diamonds and crossed to his hand with the

queen of diamonds, drawing trumps in the process. He followed with a low club, hoping to see the ace from West. When West produced the eight, instead, South stopped to give it some thought. South reasoned that West would never duck his ace a second time — it would be too dangerous. South felt certain that East held the ace. Given that as a fact, South determined that running the nine was the proper play. That might force the ace from East, allowing two discards on dummy’s clubs, after a ruf if necessary. When East won with the jack and returned a heart, South ruffed the heart in dummy and led the queen of clubs for a ruffing finesse against the ace. East played low smoothly, but declarer was sure of the position. He discarded a spade, then rufed out the ace of clubs and returned to dummy with the ace of spades to discard his remaining low spade on the 10 of clubs. Nicely played! (07/27/16)

DEAR ABBY

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

Mom wants family to accept daughters

Dear Mommy • Did these aunts

and uncles have children, or are they childless? If you have cousins, consider reaching out to them first, because their views may be less conservative than their parents’. If your family’s Christian roots are as strong as you say they are, they should be both welcoming and forgiving, and embrace your children in their loving family circle. However, if they are not, then it would be better for your little girls if they were not exposed to them. I have advised in the past that sometimes people have to live their own lives and create their own families. If your relatives are rejecting, that is what you will have to do, not only for your daughters’ sake, but also for your own. Dear Abby • I have been getting together with a group of ladies for many years now. Husbands and boyfriends are welcome but rarely come. We enjoy meeting at each other’s houses and at restaurants every few months. We are having a problem with

one member, “Gail,” who is envious of “Rose,” a still-beautiful former model. Gail has been making remarks that Rose “must have had work done” on her face to be able to retain her looks for so long. (I think it is a combination of good genes, sunscreen and incredible bone structure.) What Rose has or hasn’t done is none of Gail’s business. Rose is aware of Gail’s jealousy, and it puts a damper on our good times and our caring attitudes toward one another. We wish Gail would drop out. Have you any ideas on how we can deal with this problem? — CLUB MEMBER IN THE SOUTHWEST Dear Club Member • I sure do. The person closest to Gail needs to tell her, privately, that the catty comments make everyone uncomfortable, and if she doesn’t stop, she will no longer be welcome. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Dear Abby • I am a single mother of two biracial daughters ages 2 and 4. They fill my life with joy and I am thankful to be their mother. My problem is, I haven’t been able to face my family members since the birth of my second child. My family has strong Christian roots, and I know they were disappointed when they heard about another unplanned pregnancy. This isn’t the first time I have disappointed them. I smoked a lot of marijuana as a teen and young adult. I straightened my life out during my late 20s. I miss my family very much, and I also feel my children are missing out by not knowing them. My parents passed away many years ago. My children’s father was beaten to death days before my youngest daughter was born. My aunts and uncles are all I have left, and it breaks my heart to think we have lost them, too. How should I handle this without getting my heart broken? — MISSISSIPPI MOMMY

TV WEDNESDAY

To regain spot in dad’s life, be present

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

Dear Carolyn • After many years of being single, my dad is getting married soon to a woman he loves very much. She has two daughters, younger than my brother and me, and my dad has gotten very close with them, which is overall good for him and for them. While this has been happening, I have seen him less, mostly because my mom was sick and I wanted to spend as much time as possible with her. She has now passed, and it’s become increasingly apparent that he’s slowly stepped out of the picture for me — he rarely calls or asks about how I’m doing (even after a lot of tragedy this past year), and every time we do talk it’s pretty much about the fiancee’s daughters. I am truly happy for him that he’s found someone and been accepted by her family, but I’ll be honest, it hurts that he’s committed to being their dad and

kind of stopped being mine. As we all congregate to celebrate his wedding, how can I reconcile these feelings and enjoy a moment that is important for him? I keep thinking that he won’t be around forever either, that someday I’ll regret letting my jealousy/ resentment/sadness cloud the time I do spend with him. Any advice? — Left-Behind Daughter Answer • I’m sorry about your mom, and about your difficult year. I hope you give yourself time to recover — even if that includes setting aside these dad worries until you feel ready to take them on. The problem might not be as drastic as it seems, though. My hunch is that it’s in your father’s emotional makeup to live in the present as a passive participant — meaning, whatever his current circumstances offer him, that’s where his attention rests.

You probably know people like this, if you think about it, like the friends who are always warm and welcoming when you see them but terrible about staying in touch. This trait can be hard to spot in people who serve as your emotional pillars, though; often we see them more for their role in our lives than for who they really are. And for our expectation that they want to stay close to us. Of course it hurts when they drift. If he is this way, then maybe he didn’t leave you behind so much as you left him behind to attend to your mother. That would also mean it’s a simple problem to correct, though: You just need to be steadily present again, the way you were before you mom needed your full attention. tellme@washpost.com

ZITS • By Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman

Long bike rides lead to cramps Dear Dr. Roach • For the past few months, I have been training for a 160-mile bike ride, scheduled for this July. After almost every long ride (longer than three hours) I sufer the most excruciatingly painful cramps in my vastus medialis quad muscle. I am a 59-year-old male, a life-long runner and have had quad, hamstring and calf cramps before, but I rate the pain from those cramps as 2-3 on a 1-10 pain scale. The innerthigh cramps I’ve been getting are 9-10! I’ve almost passed out a couple of times. They always hit a few to several hours after the hard ride, sometimes in one leg, sometimes in the other, and once in both. They always occur when I’ve been sitting for a while and start to get up, or am bending over to put on shoes. I’ve tried “home” remedies such as eating Tums, eating mustard and drinking pickle juice. The pickle juice seems to help the most. I suspect dehydration has a role in the cause, and I drink 16-20 ounces of liquids containing electrolytes every hour during the rides, but I still get the horrible cramps later in the day. They are so severe that I almost don’t want to ride anymore. Any thoughts on cause and prevention? — B.R.

Answer • There are many causes of cramps. Losing fluid and electrolytes are two important ones, but it sounds like you are working hard to prevent that (although many sports drinks have too much sugar and not enough sodium or potassium). Those who are just beginning to exercise and overdo it are at risk, but that doesn’t seem like you. My best guess in your case is inadequate stretching, which is a very common problem, especially among cyclists. Stretching well before your training rides may prevent the problem entirely, and stretching at onset of cramps can stop them quickly. A physical therapist or exercise trainer can help you learn the best stretches for your vastus medialis muscle, a muscle that extends the leg at the knee. Pickle juice, amazingly enough, has been found in studies to quickly relieve cramps in athletes with electronically stimulated cramps, and this effect is thought to be neurologically mediated, rather than an effect of the salt and other compounds in pickle juice. The booklet on sodium, potassium chloride and bicarbonate explains some of the functions of these body chemicals and how low or high readings are corrected.
