Tribune withdraws from Sinclair merger

Deal would have created a national right-leaning television powerhouse BY BRIAN FUNG AND TONY ROMM Washington Post

Tribune Media said Thursday that it would terminate its proposed merger with Sinclair Broadcast Group, while announcing a $1 billion lawsuit against the conservative television giant on grounds that it engaged in “misconduct” and precluded the U.S. government from approving the deal. The breakdown of the merger — which would have created a national right-leaning television powerhouse — reflects a reversal of fortunes for Sinclair, which announced the $3.9 billion tie-up last year as a “transformational” event and the biggest acquisition in its history. The merger began to stumble last month after Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai highlighted “serious concerns” about the deal, which originally would have reached roughly 70 percent of U.S. households. The FCC raised questions about Sinclair’s plan to sell some key stations to adhere to federal media ownership laws, and it voted to send the matter to an administrative law judge, which is often interpreted as a signal that a transaction may be blocked. In the lawsuit, Tribune accused Sinclair of engaging in “belligerent and unnecessarily protracted negotiations”

ing threats and competition from Russia and China, the White House on Thursday announced ambitious plans to create the U.S. Space Force as a sixth, separate military warfighting service by 2020. The proposal taps into the American public’s long fascination with space but with a military focus, and it faces daunting hurdles. It requires congressional approval and has been met with skepticism from military leaders and experts who question the wisdom of launching an expensive, bureaucratic new service branch. Vice President Mike Pence announced the new force during a Pentagon speech, fleshing out an idea that President Donald Trump has flagged in recent months as he vowed to ensure American dominance in space. Pence described space as a domain that was once peaceful and uncontested but has now become crowded and adversarial. “Now the time has come to write the next great chapter in the history of our armed forces, to prepare for the next See SPACE • Page A7

In secret tape, Nunes says Congress must protect Trump

SENATE SNARK WARS

ST. CHARLES • There appears to be some daylight between Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley and President Donald Trump on at least one topic: the media. After a small rally in St. Charles on Wednesday, Hawley, the GOP’s newly minted nominee to take on U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., in November, said he did not consider the media the enemy of the American public. “The media say a lot of things that people disagree with, but I don’t think they’re the enemy of the people, no,” Hawley told a Post-Dispatch reporter. “But, I understand, certainly, what folks say. They get frustrated with the media.” Trump has long maintained an icy relationship with the press, and has gone so far as to call the “FAKE NEWS media” the “enemy of the American People” in a February 2017 tweet. At the time, he singled out The New York Times, NBC, ABC and CNN as the “FAKE NEWS media.” The tension between the president and the press has surfaced in various ways since Trump took office. CNN’s Jim Acosta walked out of a White House press briefing this month after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to say the media were not the enemy of the people.

Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, appears to have moved from criticizing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election to strategizing about how to blunt its impact should it imperil President Donald Trump. The most promising instrument in this effort, he suggested in unfiltered remarks last month, is retaining a GOP-controlled Congress. Even if he had been speaking publicly, the eight-term Republican might not have chosen his words differently. He is an adamantly pro-Trump lawmaker who in February released a memorandum accusing the intelligence community of conspiring against the president. In May, he sought documents from the Justice Department — as part of his investigation into the law enforcement officials leading the Russia inquiry — that senior intelligence officials maintained could expose a top source and endanger lives. But it was in private, at a closed-door fundraiser for a Republican colleague,

Bell’s stunning victory gives hope to those seeking justice TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Rev. Spencer Lamar Booker sat a few rows back at Apostles Church in the Lewis Place neighborhood in north St. Louis. It was the day after, and the day before. On Tuesday, Ferguson Councilman Wesley Bell “shocked the world” with his upset victory over St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch in the Democratic primary. On Thursday, it was four years since Michael Brown lay dead in the street for more than four hours after being shot by Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson. The two events — Bell’s victory over the man who chose not to prosecute Wilson — are threads in the same civil rights story that started in the streets outside the Canfield Green apartments. So, too, was the event on Wednesday that drew Booker to the church. He was there to support the family of Louis “Lynn” Payton, 48, who died Aug. 2 after collapsing at the City Workhouse. The Workhouse is a medium-security institution targeted by activists and legal scholars as a disgrace to the criminal justice system for 30 years. Payton’s family members say they don’t know how or why he died. At a news conference set up by the Close the Workhouse movement, they decried the city’s alleged insensitivity in dealing with Payton’s death in custody. “I just want justice for my brother,” said Janice Washington. “We still don’t know what really happened.” Booker, who is the pastor at St. Paul AME Church just a few minutes west on

Page Boulevard in the West End neighborhood, knows the pain Washington is feeling. Eight years ago, his brother, Marvin Louis Booker, died while in custody in jail in Denver. Marvin was a homeless street preacher, who, like Payton, was arrested on drug charges. While in detention, he was stopped by a deputy on the way to pick up his shoes, which he had taken off. There was a scuffle. Marvin ended up on the ground, held there in a choke hold with the weight of five officers on his malnourished body. He was hit with a Taser after he had been handcuffed. He died. “All he wanted was his shoes,” Booker says of his brother. The Denver prosecutor at the time didn’t file any charges. The Taser in question never made its way to evidence. A documentary — “Marvin Booker Was Murdered” — detailed the efforts of the Booker family to achieve justice. They won a $6 million civil settlement. Last year, a new prosecutor opened a grand jury investigation into the case. Prosecutors make a difference. It’s one reason why Inez Bordeaux, one of the organizers of the Close the Workhouse movement, is so excited about Bell’s victory on Tuesday. “I feel like things are falling into place,” says Bordeaux, a nurse who spent a month in the workhouse a few years back, and just got her nursing license returned to her after her own battles with the criminal justice system and its propensity for punishing poor people. Bell’s campaign of getting rid of cash bail in the county fits right in with the attempts to close the workhouse, which houses mostly men and women being held before trial, some on serious charges, many not. It is a symbol of how

the criminal justice system works to help keep people in poverty, jailing the poor as those with money go free. Four years ago, thousands of young people from all over the county descended upon the St. Louis region and marched and chanted and protested and stood eye-to-eye with armored police vehicles to bring attention to that issue. The Ferguson Commission was formed to study it, and in the end, a group of diverse community leaders issued 47 priority calls to action to improve racial equity and the state of the criminal justice system in the region. We’re failing, members of the renamed Forward Through Ferguson organization told St. Louis on Wednesday morning, just a couple of hours before the Payton family pleaded for justice for their dead brother, cousin, uncle and son. There has been serious action on only five of the commission’s calls to action, with progress being made on some transportation, housing and financial empowerment issues. Short of some municipal court reforms, there has been little progress in the area of criminal justice. Bell’s stunning victory — fueled by activists who got their start in Ferguson, including Kayla Reed of Call to Action — could bend the arc of history closer to justice. “I feel hopeful about St. Louis,” Bordeaux says. It might take another three years. Maybe five years. “But we’re going to get somewhere.” Booker got an email from the Denver prosecutor on Monday. There will be no charges in the death of his brother. Like the Payton family, he still wants answers. Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

ST. LOUIS • Police on Thursday identified the inmate who died last week at the City Workhouse, and the man’s mother says she still is in the dark about what happened to him. Louis L. Payton, 48, collapsed at the jail and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead Aug. 2, police say. The workhouse, more formally known as the Payton city’s Medium Security Institution, is at 7600 Hall Street. Police were called to a hospital shortly before 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 2 for the in-custody death. Payton was jailed while awaiting trial on gun and drug charges, according to court records. Police have not released how Payton died, saying that the case is under investigation. Dale Glass, director of corrections for St. Louis, could not be reached for comment. Payton’s mother said the jail staffer

who called her has offered no answers. “They haven’t told me nothing,” an exasperated Velma Payton told the PostDispatch on Thursday. She said a supervisor at the workhouse called to break the news of her son’s death about seven hours after he died. “I said, ‘Deceased? What happened?’ He said he didn’t know,” she said. Velma Payton said the supervisor told her that her son was found sitting in a chair unresponsive, and that he died at a hospital. She said she last spoke with her son a few days before his death when he called to ask if she’d put money into his jail account. Velma Payton said her son had no health issues that she knew of. The same supervisor called her again on Thursday morning, a week after her son’s death, to tell her the jail had some books and pictures that belonged to her son if she wanted to pick them up. She again asked how her son died, and the man said he didn’t know. Missouri Department of Corrections records show that Payton had been in a halfway house north of downtown after his release from prison after serving

part of a 12-year sentence for weapons crimes and resisting arrest. In January, Payton was charged with 11 new weapons crimes and five felony drug crimes. Court records show his trial was scheduled for October. A local group called Close the Workhouse is citing Payton’s death as the latest reason St. Louis should shut down the facility. They claim Payton asked for medical attention but was denied. City officials have not confirmed or responded to that claim. This is the second St. Louis city jail inmate to die in custody this summer. On June 17, an inmate at the St. Louis Justice Center downtown died at a hospital after collapsing at the jail. Leon V. Smith, 58, died of cardiac arrest, police said. Smith lived in the 3300 block of Wren Avenue in St. Louis. He was in custody on a charge of second-degree robbery. In May, an inmate at the City Workhouse was found dead in his cell, hanging from a bed sheet. Authorities say the death of Andre Jones, 30, was an apparent suicide. He was at the jail after being arrested for assault and abuse or neglect of a child in November.

MICHAEL BROWN REMEMBERED

Two men found guilty in killing caught on tape at O’Fallon Park gas station Frank Clabon (left), pleaded guilty to an assault charge in the death of Robert Piffins. Hubert Harris (center), and Jihad Spann were found guilty of murder.

BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • Jurors on

Thursday rejected the self-defense claims of two men in a 2016 beating and deadly shooting of another man that was caught on video at a BP gas station near O’Fallon Park. The jury found Hubert Harris, 28, and Jihad Spann, 32, guilty of firstdegree murder and armed criminal action in the May 20, 2016, fatal shooting of Robert Piffins, 53, after a fight allegedly over a drug debt. The attack was about 3:20 a.m. at the BP station at 4126 West Florissant Avenue. A third man, Frank Clabon, took part in the attack; he previously pleaded guilty in the case. Undisputed is that Harris shot Piffins once in the heart, killing him, after he and Spann dragged Piffins to a dumpster behind the gas station. Much of the fight and the shooting were recorded on gas station surveillance videos. Spann handed Harris a revolver during the attack, which is why prosecutors charged him as an accomplice. According to court documents, a confidential informer told police Harris was a crack dealer who had feuded with Piffins over drug money. An autopsy revealed that Piffins had cocaine in his blood and urine. In closing arguments Thursday, Assistant Circ u i t At to r n ey C h r i s Klaverkamp approached the defense table and pointed his finger inches from the defendants’ faces. “They dragged Mr. Piffins to a urine-soaked dumpster and discarded his life like a piece of trash, and calmly walked away,” said Klaverkamp, who then took jurors through various frames of the surveillance videos. Defense lawyers John Washington and Stephen Ranz told jurors Harris and Spann were defending themselves against a knife attack from Piffins. “They weren’t thinking — they were reacting,” said Ranz, who represented Harris. After the shooting, Clabon drove Harris from the scene, police have said. Clabon pleaded guilty in March to first-degree assault and armed criminal action. Prosecutors dropped a first-degree murder charge against him in exchange for his testimony against Harris and Spann. Sentencing for Clabon is set for Aug. 24. On Oct. 5, Circuit Judge Steven Ohmer will sentence the men to life without parole, the mandatory sentence for first-degree murder when prosecutors don’t seek the death penalty.

ST. LOUIS > SLU reports record $98.7 million in donations • St. Louis University announced a record-breaking fundraising haul during its bicentennial year, reporting $98.7 million raised in the fiscal year that ended June 30. “Our bicentennial has focused our supporters on the many ways in which we are living our mission,” SLU President Fred Pestello said. “Our vision inspired an unparalleled outpouring of support. This unprecedented generosity from our alumni, our trustees and countless other stakeholders demonstrates their confidence in our future.” SLU said its last annual fundraising record was set in 2005-2006, when it raised $65 million. The 2017-18 fundraising total included a $15 million gift from businessman Richard Chaifetz and his wife, Jill, which spurred the university to rename its business school in honor of the man whose name already is atop the arena where SLU’s Billikens play basketball. But it wasn’t only megadonors. SLU said a record 14,805 donors made gifts to the university during the past fiscal year. Eleven gifts topped $1 million. Most gifts supported academic programs, patient care, and student scholarships and financial aid. SLU said its Go Further initiative, where it matches scholarship gifts dollar to dollar, has raised more than $39.5 million in matching funds since its launch five years ago. ST. LOUIS COUNTY > Parkway schools to put bond issue on ballot • The school board on Wednesday

night unanimously backed putting a $110 million general obligation bond issue before voters Nov. 6. The bond issue, to be called Proposition S, would not call for an increase in the district’s tax rate, said Patty Bedborough, the district’s chief financial officer. The residential rate is $3.99 per $100 of assessed valuation. A 57 percent vote in favor would be needed for approval, she said. The district’s voters most recently approved a $94 million bond issue — with a 15-cent per $100 of assessed valuation tax increase — in 2014. Proposition S — which Bedborough says stands for safety and security as well as students — would fund a variety of projects, including: • The second phase of renovations at Parkway North High School, at 12860 Fee Fee Road. • The renovation of the Instructional Services Center, at 12657 Fee Fee, to serve as the McKelvey Primary Center, initially to serve kindergarten and first grade students. • An expansion at Parkway South Middle School, at 760 Woods Mill Road, to allow for a new Instructional Services Center, offices for district counselors, social workers and registrars, as well as meeting rooms. It would also allow for more classroom space, if needed, to offset overcrowding in other areas such as early childhood education. • Replacing existing heating/ ventilation/air conditioning units, roofs, plumbing and electrical systems at schools. • Technology and security upgrades. “Renovations, maintenance and repairs are needed at our schools, which have an average age of about 50 years,” Bedborough said.

Two election recounts St. Louisan charged in fatal Wisconsin could be on tap in circular saw attack St. Charles County FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS

Man pleads guilty in pet food scandal BY ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ELLSWORTH, WIS. • A roofer accused of killing a coJEFFERSON CITY • Two recounts could be in store for a St.

Charles County-based Missouri House district where both the Republican and Democratic primary winners won their races by razor-thin margins. Republican Ron Hicks beat his opponent, Bryan Cooper, by just four votes on Tuesday out of 4,558 ballots cast. Democrat John F. Foster beat his opponent, Gary Wester, by just 15 votes out of 3,141 ballots cast. Because both Cooper and Wester lost by less than one-half of 1 percentage point, both are entitled to ask for a recount when the ballots are certified this month. The vote totals could also shift if there are provisional or military ballots to be tallied. Both the Wester and the Cooper campaigns told the PostDispatch they are considering asking for a recount. The 102nd House District takes in all or parts of O’Fallon, Dardenne Prairie, Weldon Spring and New Melle. The campaigns even floated the possibility of asking for a new election after the Monticello Clubhouse polling location in O’Fallon was closed for about 90 minutes on Tuesday morning. “This isn’t sour grapes,” said Jan Wester, wife of Gary Wester. “We want fair elections.” Cooper and Jan Wester also said it was possible the campaigns would ask for a new election just at the Monticello Clubhouse precinct. Cooper lives nearby, and said many of his friends and his neighbors were prevented from voting on Tuesday morning. “People were cheated out of their right to vote,” Cooper said. “I was there at 5:50. From 6 o’clock until 7:30, the polls were closed and no one could come in. There was a crowd of people standing out there.” Rich Chrismer, the chief of the St. Charles County Election Authority, said the polling place was not opened on time because the clubhouse’s management changed the building’s locks over the weekend without telling election officials. Maura Browning, spokeswoman for Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft, said county officials told state officials Tuesday morning that the building had been struck by lightning over the weekend, somehow preventing access. Chrismer said that turned out to be an unfounded rumor. He cast doubt on whether a judge would order a new election. “Nobody was not allowed to vote,” he said. “The issue was we were not allowed to get into the building.” Paul DeGregorio, former director of the St. Louis County Election Board, said he spoke with Cooper and thought Cooper could have standing to ask for a special election. “The fact that this polling station did not open till 7:30 is really uncalled for,” he said. “There’s no excuse for that.” Chrismer said that for a new election to be ordered there would have to be irregularities attributed to the actions of the election authority. “If we rent a building and the building is not accessible to us because they changed the locks, the election authority didn’t cause that,” he said. He added that voters were told they could cast ballots at the St. Charles County elections headquarters, or to come back later. DeGregorio, also former chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, countered: “That’s putting a burden on the voter to do that. You’re asking people to drive to his place to do that ... A judge could rule that that’s an undue burden.”

worker with a circular saw in western Wisconsin said he was being teased and thought he was being drugged, according to a criminal complaint. Miguel Navarro, 24, of St. Louis, was charged Thursday in Pierce County court with first-degree intentional homicide and mayhem, both felonies, in the death of Israel Valles-Flores, 37, also of St. Louis. According to the complaint, Navarro was seen attacking Valles-Flores with a circular Navarro saw while on a home’s roof near River Falls. The victim ended up on the garage roof, where he died of his injuries. A witness said Navarro continued cutting Valles-Flores after the victim fell backward on to the garage roof, according to the complaint. A witness said Valles-Flores handed the saw to Navarro, who immediately cut into the victim’s neck. A bloody circular saw was found on the ground. Maria Valles, a sister of Valles-Flores, said her brother had known Navarro for several years and Navarro had lived with Valles-Flores’ family in their St. Louis home. “I just feel sad,” Valle said. “(Miguel’s) reaction comes from where? It comes from evil.” During a recorded jail call, Navarro said the other workers, including Valles-Flores, were teasing him because he wasn’t feeling well after having sex. There was no apparent argument before the attack. Navarro was mad about being teased and “he was getting really mad inside,” the complaint said. He also thought he was being drugged, perhaps to work more, and was not getting paid, according to the complaint. Valles said she’s baffled by this explanation because Navarro and Valles-Flores would tease and joke with each other on a regular basis. She described Navarro as quiet and shy, but friendly. Valles-Flores was working with the roofing crew in Wisconsin to save money to move his family back to Mexico, she said. “(Valles-Flores) was the best brother,” Valles said. “He was the best husband. He provided for his family and worked so hard to get everything together. He didn’t care how far he had to go to provide for them.” After the attack, a witness heard Navarro calling for him as he ran away and was afraid Navarro was going to hurt him, the complaint said. An autopsy found Valles-Flores had 10 sharp force injuries, including to his face, neck and back. The jugular vein and carotid artery in his neck were both cut. Valles said the entire situation seems almost unbelievable to her. She said her family hasn’t been allowed to see her brother’s body. Even if they can’t see his face, she said, they could identify him by his tattoos, “to make sure that’s him.” Online court records show Navarro appeared in court by video conference from jail with his attorney Thursday. Cash bail was set at $500,000, and a hearing is scheduled Monday for Navarro, who remains in jail. Valles-Flores’ wife and sister aren’t sure what they’ll do without him. “No hay palabras,” said his wife, Viviana Serrano. Translated, it means: There are no words.

LAW & ORDER ST. LOUIS > Shooting victim dies • A St. Louis man shot in the 2800 block of Vandeventer Avenue on Wednesday night died at a hospital. Police identified the victim as Tor’el White, 33, of the 2600 block of Lasalle Lane. Officers called to a reported shooting found White at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday near Vandeventer and St. Louis avenues. He was taken to a hospital, where he died. Police on Thursday said they had no suspects. Homicide detectives are investigating. Authorities asked anyone with information to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward. ST. LOUIS > Driver gets 5 years in fatal crash • A St. Louis man was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison for a high-speed crash that killed a Lindenwood University student in 2016. Marcus Jackson, 25, of the 900 block of Maryville Avenue, pleaded guilty in June to involuntary manslaughter, three counts of

second-degree assault and leaving the scene of the crash. He was sentenced by Circuit Judge Christopher McGraugh. Charges said Jackson was speeding at more than 125 mph on eastbound Interstate 70 when he rear-ended a Nissan Cube carrying four people shortly after 1 a.m. on Nov. 6, 2016. Two of them Jackson were ejected, including Marianne Olyslager-Maldonado, 23. She died of her injuries. Police said the three survivors suffered serious injuries. A student publication at Lindenwood University identified the four in the Cube as international students at the St. Charles university. Jackson was initially charged only with leaving the scene of a crash, but a grand jury indicted him last year on the additional charges. According to Lindenwood’s student newspaper, Olyslager-Moldonado was a junior business major from Honduras. Jackson’s lawyer Celeste Dotson said Jackson regrets what happened and told the court how sorry he is.

ALTON > Suspect arrested in attack on cabdriver • Police arrested a man they say stabbed a cabdriver inside his taxi more than 12 times and left him for dead on Wednesday night. A patrol officer on Thursday nabbed Arthur E. Smallwood, 54, who had been the focus of a search earlier Smallwood in the day. Smallwood has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery by the Madison County state’s attorney’s office. Bail has been set at $1 million. The attack happened about 10:15 p.m. on Atwood Street, according to Alton Public Information Officer Emily Hejna. Smallwood allegedly stabbed the victim, a driver for Alton’s Best Cabs, more than 12 times in the back, shoulder and neck. The driver was taken to a St. Louis hospital, where he is being treated. His condition was not released. ST. LOUIS > Second jury deadlocks in murder case • For the second time in less than a year, a St. Louis jury could not reach a

ST. LOUIS • A former employee of a

Texas-based company on Thursday admitted helping orchestrate a scheme where lower-quality pet food ingredients containing poultry feathers, heads, bones, feet or entrails were passed off to pet food manufacturers, distributors and brokers as higher-quality, more expensive ingredients. Henry R. Rychlik pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in St. Louis to two misdemeanor charges of adulteration or misbranding of food, and admitted a role in sending multiple adulterated shipments from 2012 to May 2014, his plea agreement says. Rychlik admitted altering paperwork to cover up the substitution. The plea specifically mentions two shipments in 2014 that totaled 98,000 pounds. His plea says he did not personally profit from the scheme, although others made millions of dollars. Rychlik could face no more than a year in jail for the misdemeanor charges, and could also face a $2,000 fine. Rychlik lawyer Chris Slusher said the 66-year-old has never been in trouble before and “regrets his role.” The pet food probe has already resulted in other guilty pleas. A Ballwin company, Diversified Ingredients, pleaded guilty in July to two misdemeanor adulteration counts and agreed to pay more than $1.5 million in restitution. Diversified Ingredients co-owner Collin McAtee pleaded guilty May 17 to two counts of the same offense and admitted helping ship adulterated food from Texas to pet food companies and others. He could face up to a year in prison, but his lawyer will ask for probation. Gregory S. McKinney, a former Texas state employee who once investigated mislabeled food, pleaded guilty in May to a felony adulteration charge and admitted supplying falsely labeled ingredients for pet food products. Wilbur-Ellis Feed LLC, a California company, pleaded guilty April 25 to one misdemeanor adulteration charge and is likely to be placed on probation and ordered to pay out nearly $5.5 million. A lawyer said the company made “mistakes handling documents” but was unaware of adulterated product. Another Texas man, William Douglas Haning, has pleaded not guilty and vowed, through his lawyer, to fight the charges. Haning was co-owner of American ByProducts of Rosser, Texas, which employed Rychlik. The company was sold to WilburEllis, a California company, in 2011.

verdict in the murder trial of a man charged with killing another near the Old Courthouse two years ago. The jury that failed to reach a verdict Wednesday in the second trial included former St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay. Witnesses claimed to have seen Darrion Dardon, 25, Dardon hang out a car window and open fire on a driver near the Old Courthouse on April 3, 2016. Isaiah Harris, 19, died from a gunshot to the head. Witnesses who were in a car behind Harris when he was shot followed the gunman’s car and gave police a license plate and description. In the first trial last November, Dardon’s defense lawyer told jurors that neither DNA nor fingerprints found in the car the gunfire came form pointed to Dardon. One of the state’s witnesses testified to having lent the car to Dardon before the killing. Police ruled out that witness as a suspect in Harris’ death.

Senate snark wars: Planes, trailers and RVs Campaigns take to Twitter to launch attacks and counterattacks

thing is the ‘damn plane.’ You can take either to the debate,” Hawley tweeted. All of this unfolded against the background noise of ad blitzes by outside groups, noise that is rising in volume and won’t stop between now and Election Day on Nov. 6. One ad currently on the air in Missouri, from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, attacks the wealth of McCaskill and her husband and alleges that a lot of the wealth that they have accumulated has come from government housing subsidies Shepard has received since McCaskill became a senator. There is no linkage between any of McCaskill’s official acts and Shepard’s business, but this particular attack is about more than that: It questions whether McCaskill, who lives in an expensive condo in D.C. and has been in the Senate two terms, is as connected to the grassroots as she says she is. The not-so-subtle claim: Anyone who is rich enough to take a plane home for dinner is not a down-home Missourian. President Donald Trump, no stranger to private planes himself, even weighed in on the RV-plane thing on Hawley’s behalf this summer. McCaskill’s flatbed-trailer lesson and “Yale law school” digs are really about whether Hawley is a true Missourian or a carpetbagger who left the state and came home only to seek public office. McCaskill has said that she, too, could have gone elsewhere to law school but chose Mizzou because she wanted to maintain her political viability in the state. So this is much deeper than the ways you get around, or calling a trailer a trailer. It’s about who is the truest Missourian in an age when authenticity is a muchsought attribute. And it all played out on that platform of depth and context: Twitter.

BY CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WASHINGTON • Planes, trailers and RVs.

In an escalation of the snark war between Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill and Republican Attorney General Josh Hawley, the two U.S. Senate candidates from Missouri tweeted post-primary insults back and forth in fights over McCaskill’s wealth, Hawley’s Yale law degree and their respective knowledge of basic and not-so-basic modes of transportation. First Hawley challenged McCaskill to debates around the state on a flatbed truck. The problem was that Hawley tweeted a picture of himself standing on a trailer — a distinction with a world of difference in the long-and-short haul universe. One’s a truck, the other is pulled by a truck — or a pickup, if you want to get really fine about it. Of that there is no debate. McCaskill, who says she does all her own tweets, sometimes to her aides’ chagrin, pounced. “Note to Yale law grad: the thing you are standing on is a trailer,” McCaskill tweeted. “The picture below it is a flatbed truck. See you at our first debate!” McCaskill even added one of those clenched-teeth-smile emojis designed to depict she was part laughing at Hawley, part shaking her head. Hawley was not about to be out-transported. And he had a wide-open runway from which to launch his countersnark. Hawley harkened back to McCaskill’s problems with airplanes. She got into hot water before the 2012 election for not paying taxes on a plane she and her husband. Joseph Shepard owned. More re-

cently, McCaskill was forced to acknowledge that she’d used a private plane at times during an RV tour.

So Hawley tweeted pictures of a plane and an RV. “The first thing is an RV. The second

correct. But, he said, “the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people!” Since taking office last January, Hawley has held several news conferences. He has answered off-topic questions without fussing, and addresses reporters by their first names. His media handlers are responsive, most days. This past legislative session, he backed a measure to strengthen Missouri’s Sunshine Law. The legislation, which did not pass, would have granted the attorney general’s office subpoena power in open records cases, something the office does not possess. Hawley held a joint news conference with Jean Maneke, attorney for the Missouri Press Association, to tout the legislation. She said in an interview that she is satisfied with the way Hawley has worked with the media during his tenure. “Our attorney general’s office is one that many members of the media deal with on a fairly regular basis,” Maneke said. “Of course, it’s the main point of contact for Sunshine Law issues. Attorney General Hawley has from the beginning taken the position that he wanted to be strong on the Sunshine Law activities that go through his office.” She pointed to the attorney general’s filing of a lawsuit in January against St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger’s administration, which alleges Stenger’s office routinely violates the open records law. “He has seemed responsive to complaints that are filed on the attorney general’s website, and has actually filed some litigation to enforce the Sunshine Law,”

Maneke said. McCaskill barbed Hawley this winter for what she called a halfhearted investigation into then-Gov. Eric Greitens’ use of the text-message destroying smartphone application Confide. Open-records advocates worry Greitens and his administration broke the law by using the app. Hawley’s office discovered no wrongdoing, but did not attempt to interview Greitens himself. During Greitens’ time in office, Hawley also launched investigations into whether Greitens’ staff violated a state law barring public employees from working on political projects. He launched another investigation into Greitens’ cozy ties with his former charity, The Mission Continues. Hawley said those investigations were ongoing. “We want to make sure that we get the facts, and that we are very thorough,” Hawley said on Wednesday. “And we are going to continue to do that. But they (the investigations) are open.” Despite the apparent disagreement with Trump over the media, Hawley has attempted to tie himself to the president in other ways. Hawley said Wednesday he had spoken to Trump following his Tuesday night primary win, and hopes the president campaigns with him this fall. He challenged McCaskill to support Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s pending nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court. “I think we need judges whose philosophy is: You believe and enforce the Constitution the people wrote,” Hawley said, “not the way that the liberal judges, or the liberal media or the liberal bureaucracy want it to be.” Jack Suntrup • 573-556-6184 @JackSuntrup on Twitter jsuntrup@post-dispatch.com

St. Louis A BIG BOY NOW CopWatch founder sues over arrest at crime scene BY ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A St. Louis activist who founded the local chapter of CopWatch, a group that monitors police, filed a civil rights lawsuit against officers in federal court Thursday, saying they violated his rights by unlawfully arresting him and searching and seizing his camcorder. David Whitt, of St. Louis, was filming police on Aug. 8, 2016, on Wells Avenue when an officer told him to back up until he was about 50 feet from a police vehicle where an arrestee was in custody, the suit says. Whitt was then arrested, held for roughly 10 hours in jail and released, it says. Whitt’s Panasonic camcorder was held for five months, and an officer applied for a warrant to search the camera, even though the officers didn’t have probable cause for the initial arrest, the suit says. When the camera was returned, it was damaged, the suit says, including in an apparent attempt to erase the SD card. Whitt was charged in municipal court with interfering with an officer. He rejected a plea deal that would have resolved the city of any liability, the suit says. The charge was later dropped. Whitt now fears being arrested and prosecuted again for exercising his First Amendment rights, the suit says. The suit names the city, officers Ryan J. Linhorst and Matthew A. Shaw, Sgt. Matthew T. Karnowski, Detective Bobby D. Baine and three unnamed officers. City Counselor Julian Bush declined to comment Thursday on the suit. Whitt founded the local CopWatch chapter in 2014, after Michael Brown was killed by a Ferguson police officer, the suit says.

Tribune says it will sue Sinclair for ‘breach of contract’ SINCLAIR • FROM A1

with the FCC as well as the Justice Department, which reviewed the merger over its potential effects on competition. By failing to divest television stations as regulators recommended, Tribune said Sinclair had “breached” the companies’ merger agreement, which required them to make their best efforts to secure federal approval. “In light of the FCC’s unanimous decision, referring the issue of Sinclair’s conduct for a hearing before an administrative law judge, our merger cannot be completed within an acceptable time frame, if ever,” said Peter Kern, Tribune’s chief executive officer, in a statement Thursday. “This uncertainty and delay would be detrimental to our company and our shareholders. Accordingly, we have exercised our right to terminate the Merger Agreement, and, by way of our lawsuit, intend to hold Sinclair accountable.” In response, Sinclair chief executive Chris Ripley said in a statement Thursday that the company is “extremely disappointed that after 15 months of trying to close the Tribune transaction, we are instead announcing its termination.” He said that Sinclair “did not mislead the FCC with respect to the transaction or act in any way other than with complete candor and transparency.” But Ripley stressed that Tribune’s lawsuit is “entirely without merit, and we intend to defend against it vigorously.” The $3.9 billion deal would have greatly expanded Sinclair’s footprint to 233 stations in 108 markets nationwide. As originally proposed, it would have created the biggest U.S. television company, adding Tribune’s 42 stations to Sinclair’s roster. And it would have been a victory for rightleaning media in a turbulent political environment in which Republican critics have alleged systemic negative bias on college campuses and social media platforms. Sinclair sought to erect a potential competitor to the likes of Fox News. The deal would have had a significant impact on the St. Louis television market. Sinclair, which already owns KDNL (Channel 30), the ABC affiliate, would have gained control of KTVI (Channel 2), a Fox affiliate. In addition, Tribune separately planned to sell KPLR (Channel 11), a CW affiliate, to Meredith,

Wildfire closes in on California homes An intentionally set wildfire grew perilously close to homes in Southern California on Thursday as evacuation orders expanded to more than 20,000 residents, though some homeowners stayed behind to fend off the flames themselves.

battlefield where America’s best and bravest will be called to deter and defeat a new generation of threats to our people, to our nation,” said Pence. Trump marked Pence’s announcement with a tweet: “Space Force all the way!” Pence portrayed the change as a response to foes’ potential aggression rather than any offensive U.S. military effort. Citing Russia and China, he said that for years U.S. adversaries have “pursued weapons to jam, blind and disable our navigation and communication satellites via electronic attacks from the ground.” “As their actions make clear, our adversaries have transformed space into a warfighting domain already, and the United States will not shrink from this challenge,” he said. In June, the president directed the Pentagon to create a “separate but equal” space force, a complicated and expensive move that could take years to gain Congress’ approval and become operational. On Thursday, Pence said the administration will work with Congress on the plan and will outline a budget next year. The last time the U.S. created a new uniformed military service was in 1947, when the Air Force was launched after World War II. It joined the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has endorsed steps to reorganize the military’s space warfighting forces and create a new command but has previously opposed launching an expensive new service. A new branch of the military would require layers of bureaucracy, military and civilian leaders, uniforms, equipment and an expansive support structure. Asked about the cost, Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told reporters the Penta-

which already owns KMOV (Channel 4), the CBS affiliate. The KPLR sale was blocked by the Justice Department in May, however. In an email to the Post-Dispatch, Gary Weitman, senior vice president of corporate relations for Tribune Media, said it was too early to say if Tribune Media would continue to seek a buyer for KPLR. “Obviously, today’s news regarding the termination of our merger with Sinclair is pretty fresh,” he said. “As our CEO said on our conference call, our businesses are strong and our TV stations are performing very well. We like our makeup. We’re not going to speculate about what comes next other than continuing to do what’s best for our viewers, partners, customers, shareholders and the communities we serve.” The merger attracted the attention of President Donald Trump, who last month on Twitter criticized federal regulators for getting in the way of what he said would have become a “great and much needed Conservative voice for and of the People. “Liberal Fake News NBC and Comcast gets approved, much bigger, but not Sinclair,” he added. “Disgraceful!” Previously, the FCC said its main concern was Sinclair’s offer to spin off stations in Chicago, Dallas and Houston. The agency declined to comment Thursday. Analysts said Sinclair needed to divest some stations to comply with a national cap, enforced by the FCC, on any single broadcast company’s national audience reach. But Pai, the FCC chairman, said in a statement at the time that the “evidence we’ve received” suggested that Sinclair could still be able to control some of “those stations in practice, even if not in name, in violation of the law.” In a later filing, the agency asked an administrative law judge to review whether Sinclair had engaged in “misrepresentation and/or lack of candor” as part of its earlier divestment proposal. At the time, Sinclair strongly defended its merger to the FCC, stressing it would “create numerous public interest benefits and help move the broadcast industry forward at a time when it is facing unprecedented challenges.” Brian Feldt of the Post-Dispatch contributed to this report.

provide communications, navigation, intelligence and other services vital to the military and the national economy. U.S. intelligence agencies reported this year that Russia and China were pursuing “nondestructive and destructive” antisatellite weapons for use during a future war. And there are growing worries about cyberattacks that could target satellite technology, potentially leaving troops in combat without electronic communications or navigation abilities. The Pentagon proposal delivered Thursday to Congress lays out plans to consolidate U.S. warfighting space forces and make organizational changes to boost the acquisition and development of technologies. It says the department will establish a Space Command to develop warfighting operations, a Space Development Agency to

more quickly identify and develop new technologies, a Space Operations Force of leaders and fighters and a new support structure. In the second phase the Pentagon would combine all the components into the new sixth branch of service. In the meantime, the Space Command would be led by a four-star general, and Pence said a new high-level civilian post — assistant defense secretary for space — would also be created. Much of the military’s current space power is wielded by the Air Force Space Command, which has its headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo. The command has about 38,000 personnel and operates 185 military satellite systems, including the Global Positioning System and communications and weather satellites. It also oversees Air Force cyberwarfare.

that Nunes took the new step of tying the investigation to the midterm elections this fall. In comments captured in an audio recording aired Wednesday by “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Nunes laid out in stark terms the rationale for preserving the GOP majority in Congress. “If Sessions won’t unrecuse and Mueller won’t clear the president, we’re the only ones, which is really the danger,” Nunes said at an event for Republican Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, referring to Jeff Sessions, the attorney general, and Robert Mueller, the special counsel. Sessions said last year that he would keep his distance from inquiries related to the 2016 election owing to his role in Trump’s campaign — a move that has frustrated the president, leading him to blame his own attorney general for the “Russian Witch Hunt Hoax.” “I mean, we have to keep all these seats,” Nunes added. “We have to keep the majority. If we do not keep the majority, all of this goes away.” He seemed to suggest that congressional Republicans formed the last line of defense against potential fallout from the probe into Russian election meddling. He called this a “classic Catch-22 situation,” appearing to confuse a “tough spot” — also his words — with a situation in which contradictory conditions make escape impossible. Maddow said on her show that the tape was made by a progressive organization called Fuse Washington that paid for entrance into the fundraiser, held on July 30 in Spokane, Wash. A spokesman for Nunes didn’t return a request for comment sent late Wednesday by The Washington Post. The remarks drew immediate rebuke from Democrats. Rep. Ted Lieu, also of California, called on Nunes to resign, saying his comments ran counter to the oath of office he had taken upon entering Congress. Others observed that the lawmaker’s actions over the past year made his comments unsurprising. “After all,” tweeted University of Texas Law School professor Steve Vladeck, “this has been the only explanation — for quite some time — for his ridiculous behavior on everything from the unmasking scandal” to the “Rosenstein impeachment.” Nunes announced last year

that he would step aside from his own committee’s investigation into Russian interference after the House Ethics Committee said it was examining allegations that he “may have made unauthorized disclosures of classified information.” He has denied wrongdoing. Lieu tweeted: “Under our Constitution, the duty of Congress is not to clear the President. The duty of Congress is to be a check and balance on the Executive Branch, and to pursue the facts wherever they may lead. “Devin Nunes should resign for perverting the oath he took.” Nunes made several other noteworthy statements to the audience of GOP donors, also concerning the Russia investigation and its supervision. He blamed the Senate’s schedule — and the interest in swiftly confirming Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court — for the failure of the House to take up impeachment proceedings against Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general. Rosenstein, who appointed and now supervises Mueller, defended the special counsel investigation when he was brought before the House Judiciary Committee this summer. Just days before Nunes’ closed-door remarks in Washington state, a group of conservative lawmakers introduced a resolution calling for Rosenstein’s impeachment, though they stopped short of forcing a vote on the matter. Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., responded by saying he opposed the effort and reaffirmed his belief that Justice Department officials were acting appropriately. But Nunes said that resistance to Rosenstein’s impeachment was mostly about scheduling. “I’ve said publicly Rosenstein deserves to be impeached,” Nunes said. “I don’t think you’re gonna get any argument from most of our colleagues. The question is the timing of it right before the election.” The danger, he said, was holding up the judicial nomination, as “the Senate would have to drop everything they’re doing and start to, and start with impeachment on Rosenstein, and then take the risk of not getting Kavanaugh confirmed.” “It’s a matter of timing,” Nunes said. The series of recordings made public by Maddow do not include every question to which Nunes was responding.

Voting error slices Kobach’s lead • A voting error has cut in half the lead Kris Kobach held over incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer in the Republican primary for Kansas governor. Kobach, an anti-illegal immigration hard-liner who campaigned as a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, originally had a 191vote advantage over Colyer as of Wednesday. The latest adjustment means Kobach’s lead is reduced to 91 votes. On Thursday, the state elections office said there had been an error in transmitting votes from Thomas County in northwestern Kansas, according to Colyer campaign spokesman Kendall Marr. Ballots are still being counted in the state. Tennessee execution is first since 2009 • Tennessee carried out the execution Thursday of a man condemned for the 1985 rape and murder of a 7-year-old girl, marking the first time the state has applied the death penalty since 2009. Inmate Billy Ray Irick, 59, received a three-drug injection at a maximum-security prison in Nashville and was pronounced dead at 7:48 p.m. local time, authorities said in an emailed statement. He was convicted in 1986 in the death of Paula Dyer, a Knoxville girl he was babysitting. The U.S. Supreme Court denied Irick’s request for a stay, with Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissenting and calling the method of execution “torturous pain.” Police chief ‘shaken’ over son’s arrest in beating • A San Francisco Bay Area police chief said his family is “shaken to the core” after his son was arrested in the beating of a 71-year-old Sikh man. Tyrone McAllister, 18, and a boy, 16, could face charges including attempted robbery, elder abuse and assault following Monday’s attack in the city of Manteca. McAllister is the son of Union City Police Chief Darryl McAllister. Man says grandson’s remains found at compound • A severely disabled Georgia boy who authorities say was kidnapped by his father and marked for an exorcism was found buried at the ramshackle compound in the New Mexico desert that has been the focus of investigators for the past week, the toddler’s grandfather said Thursday. New Mexico authorities, however, said they had yet to identify the remains, discovered Monday. The boy, Abdul-ghani Wahhaj, would have turned 4 Monday. Authorities said he was snatched from his mother in December in Jonesboro, Ga., near Atlanta. The boy’s father, Siraj ibn Wahhaj, and four other adults were arrested on suspicion of child abuse in the raid at the compound. In court papers, prosecutors also said Wahhaj had been training children there to carry out school shootings. Relatives of Florida victims urge board’s ouster • The parents and spouses of the 17 students and staff who died in the Florida high school massacre are calling for the removal of the school board in the upcoming election, saying they have failed to adequately improve campus security. At a news conference Thursday, Tony Montalto, president of the groups the families formed, said the Broward County School District has “stood by” in the six months since the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He says the district’s 234 campuses are not prepared to reopen next week. The district did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment, but Superintendent Robert Runcie has said all schools will have armed police officers or guards. From news services

First fan arrives with the sun at Bellerive BY PETER BAUGH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Tim Pope scouted out his spot Tuesday at Bellerive Country Club, and he woke up at 3 a.m. Thursday to claim it. The 64-year-old from Festus had never been to a major golf championship. He wanted his view of the 100th PGA Championship to be perfect. Pope arrived at the course at 5 a.m. Thursday. He wandered through fairways to the green of the 11th hole, where he plopped down a fold-out lawn chair. The first group of golfers did not tee off until 6:50 a.m., but Pope wanted to ensure he had a set location for the whole day.

PETER BAUGH • pbaugh@post-dispatch.com

Tim Pope woke up at 3 a.m. to claim a prime spot Thursday at Bellerive for the PGA Championship. He is from Festus.

“It’s probably the last one here in St. Louis and possibly the last one I’ll make it to,” he said.

Sporting a PGA shirt and jacket, Pope was one of the first fans to arrive at Bellerive, if not the first.

He’s working the tournament as a volunteer — he had shifts earlier this week and will work Saturday and Sunday — but on Thursday he was at Bellerive solely as a fan. As an employee at Joyce Meyer Ministries in Fenton, Pope wakes up at 3 a.m. daily, so rising early wasn’t a problem. He drove an hour from his Festus home to a shuttle stop and used his volunteer pass to hop on an early bus. “I figured I’d get up and miss the traffic,” he said. Pope said he planned to check his email while waiting for golfers to start. He also has a Bible app on his phone that he said he might read. At his spot, Pope had a

close-up view of the green at 11, a par-4. Depending on the tee-box location, hard-hitting golfers might be able to hit the ball to the green on their initial drive, meaning Pope could watch putts for eagle. He also had a view of the tee boxes for holes three and 12. Thursday marked Pope’s 64th birthday, and he was looking forward to watching Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson play in St. Louis. He did not predict who will win the tournament. That’s not important to him. “It doesn’t make any difference,” he said. “It’s just exciting to be here and be a part of the experience.” Pope has played golf

since high school and is a member of Ste. Genevieve Country Club. He was at the American Express Championship at Bellerive in 2001 and remembers when PGA Tour officials canceled the tournament after 9/11. He also attended the third round of the 2008 BMW Championship at Bellerive. The sun hadn’t fully come up as Pope made his way through the course Thursday. Fog rose on the water, and mowers hummed in the distance. When Pope arrived at his planned location, he was alone. He placed his chair on the grass and waited for play to begin.

WASHINGTON • The indictment of Rep. Chris Collins on insider trading charges is drawing new attention to the freedom members of Congress have to serve on corporate boards or to buy and sell stock in industries they’re responsible for overseeing. Collins, a Republican from western New York, has denied any wrongdoing stemming from his involvement with Innate Immunotherapeutics Limited, a biotechnology company based in Sydney, Australia. He was Innate’s largest shareholder,

the boards of charities or other philanthropic organizations, according to Craig Holman of the nonpartisan advocacy group Public Citizen. Holman, who lobbies in Washington for stricter government ethics and lobbying rules, noted that lawmakers are often privy to sensitive information before it becomes public. That makes the opportunity for insider trading “very prevalent,” he said. “My own office was stunned” by Collins’ position, Holman said. “’Really, they can sit on a board of directors?’” G ove r n m e n t e t h i c s lawyer Kathleen Clark said another downside of permitting members of Congress to be on corporate boards is that they may feel a sense of loyalty to the business, spurring them to share information with the company they

obtained through government service. Clark, a law professor at Washington University in St. Louis, also challenged the notion that service in noncommercial organizations is inherently altruistic and doesn’t come with potential conflicts of interest. Even nonprofits can have an interest in seeing particular legislation passed, she said. “In almost every situation, the ethics standards members of Congress impose on themselves are more lax than what they require of high-level executive branch officials,” Clark said. Stan Brand, senior counsel at the Washington law firm Akin Gump and former general counsel to the House, said the strength of the laws against insider trading should allay fears about corporate board service

by lawmakers. It’s irrelevant whether members serve on boards, he said. It’s what they do with sensitive information that counts. Brand said the potential distraction of being on a corporate board should be a bigger concern. “Being a member of Congress is supposed to be a full-time job,” he said. It’s difficult to know how many lawmakers have board positions. Each member of Congress files a financial disclosure report each year, but there’s no central database where that information is available. Collins was arrested Wednesday and charged with conspiracy, securities fraud, wire fraud and making false statements to the FBI. Parallel charges were filed against two other people, including Collins’ son. Prosecutors say Rep. Collins got an email from Innate’s CEO while attending a picnic last year at the White House that said a trial of a drug the company developed to treat multiple sclerosis was a clinical failure. They said Collins told his son, who then dumped his stock in the company before the trial results were announced publicly. Several other people also benefited from the inside information. A law known as the STOCK Act and signed into law by President Barack Obama in April 2012 prevents members of Congress “from trading stocks based on nonpublic information they gleaned on Capitol Hill,” according to a White House fact sheet issued at the time. The law also required that members of Congress report certain “investment transactions” within 45 days of making the trade. But, according to a report Holman issued last year, the law’s primary goal was to reduce insider trading by members of Congress, “not reduce stock trading per se.” Public Citizen compiled a database of stock trading activity by U.S. senators three years before the law’s passage and three years after. It found that “many individual senators continue to be very active in the stock market and often trade stocks in businesses that they oversee in their official capacity.” For example, the report said Sen. Bob Corker, RTenn., traded hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stock in energy infrastructure businesses while he was a member of the Senate Banking Committee. And Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., traded in natural resources and precious metal stock while on a subcommittee that oversees these industries. Tom Price, who was President Donald Trump’s first secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, also came under scrutiny for his purchases of Innate stock while he was a Republican member of Congress from Georgia.

Study leads to fewer opioid prescriptions When doctors learned patients had fatally OD’d, it had a chilling effect BY CARLA K. JOHNSON associated Press

In a novel experiment, doctors got a letter from the medical examiner’s office telling them of their patient’s fatal overdose. The response: They started prescribing fewer opioids. Other doctors, whose patients also overdosed, didn’t get letters. Their opioid prescribing didn’t change. More than 400 “Dear Doctor” letters, sent last year in San Diego County, were part of a study that, researchers say, put a human face on the U.S. opioid crisis for many doctors. “It’s a powerful thing to learn,” said University of Southern California public policy researcher Jason Doctor, lead author of the paper published Thursday in the journal Science. Researchers used a state database to find 861 doctors, dentists and others who had prescribed opioids and other risky medications to 170 people who died of an overdose involving prescription medicines. Most states have similar databases to track prescribing of dangerous drugs, where doctors can check patients’ previous prescriptions. Most of the deaths involved opioid painkillers, many taken in combination with anti-anxiety drugs. On average, each person who died had filled prescriptions for dangerous drugs from five to six prescribers in the year before they died. Half the prescribers received letters that began: “This is a courtesy communication to inform you that your patient (name, date of birth) died on (date). Prescription drug overdose was either the

Doctors prescribed fewer opioids after learning of a patient’s overdose death. More than 400 “Dear Doctor” letters were part of a study that put a human face on the U.S. opioid crisis for many physicians.

primary cause of death or contributed to the death.” The letters offered guidance for safer prescribing. The tone was supportive: “Learning of your patient’s death can be difficult. We hope that you will take this as an opportunity” to prevent future deaths. Then the researchers watched what happened over three months. Letter recipients reduced their average daily opioid prescribing — measured in a standard way, morphine milligram equivalents — by nearly 10 percent compared with prescribers who didn’t get letters. Opioid prescribing in the no-letter group didn’t change. Recipients put fewer new patients on opioids than those who didn’t get letters.

They wrote fewer prescriptions for highdose opioids. The strategy is original, helpful and could be duplicated elsewhere, said pain medicine expert Dr. David Clark of Stanford University, who wasn’t involved in the study. He was surprised the letter’s effect wasn’t larger. “It may have been easy for physicians to feel it was somebody else prescribing who got the patient in trouble,” Clark said, adding that changing even one patient’s care takes time, requiring “very difficult conversations.” Opioid prescribing has been declining in the U.S. for several years in response to pressure from health systems, insurers and regulators.

Yet deaths keep rising. Nearly 48,000 Americans died of opioid overdoses last year, according to preliminary numbers released last month, a 12 percent increase from a year before. Now illegal fentanyl, another opioid, is the top killer, surpassing pain pills and heroin. Lead author Doctor said reducing the number of prescribed opioids will, over time, close off a gateway to illicit drugs by shrinking the pool of dependent people. The study didn’t analyze whether the deaths were caused by inappropriate prescribing or whether the prescribing changes resulted in patients doing better or worse. That’s a flaw in an otherwise careful study, said addiction researcher Dr. Stefan Kertesz of University of Alabama at Birmingham, who has raised red flags about policies that cause doctors to take patients off opioids too fast and without a plan for treating addiction. Patients can fall into despair or contemplate suicide if they are involuntarily tapered off opioids without support, he said. “What actually happens to patients should be our concern, rather than just making a number go down,” Kertesz said. Study co-author Dr. Roneet Lev, chief of emergency medicine at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego, discovered her own name in the data. Lev prescribed 15 opioid pain pills to an ER patient with a broken eye socket, without knowing the patient got 300 painkillers from another doctor a day earlier. Lev didn’t get a “Dear Doctor” letter because the patient’s death fell outside the timeline of the study, July 2015 to June 2016. Still, she felt the impact and believes she could have done better. Said Lev: “It was an opportunity to look at all the records on that patient and say, ‘Wow, I’m really worried about you.’”

U.S. tries to deport woman, daughter while appeal hearing being held

M 1 • FrIDAy • 08.10.2018

The newest U.S. citizens: Melania Trump’s parents BY MICHAEL R. SISAK Associated Press

NEW YORK • First lady Melania WASHINGTON POST

WASHINGTON • A federal judge in Washington halted a deportation in progress Thursday and threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt after learning that the administration of President Donald Trump started to remove a woman and her daughter while a court hearing appealing their deportations was underway. “This is pretty outrageous,” U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan said after being told about the removal. “That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her? “I’m not happy about this at all,” the judge continued. “This is not acceptable.” The woman, known in court papers as Carmen, is a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed this week by the American Civil Liberties Union. It challenges a recent policy change by the Department of Justice that aims to expedite the removal of asylum seekers who fail to prove their cases and excludes domestic and gang violence as justifications for granting asylum in the United States. Attorneys for the civil rights organization and the Department of Justice had agreed to delay removal proceedings for Carmen and her child until 11:59 p.m. Thursday so they could argue the matter in court. But lead ACLU attorney Jennifer Chang Newell, who was participating in the court hearing via phone from her office in California, received an email during the hearing that said the mother and daughter were being deported. During a brief recess, she told her colleagues the pair had been taken from a family detention center in Dilley, Texas, and were headed to the airport in San Antonio for an 8:15 a.m. flight. After granting the ACLU’s request to delay deportations for Carmen and the other plaintiffs until the lawsuit is decided, Sullivan ordered the government to “turn the plane around.” Justice Department at-

torney Erez Reuveni said he had not been told the deportation was happening that morning and could not confirm the whereabouts of Carmen and her daughter. The ACLU said later that government attorneys informed them after the hearing that the pair was on a flight to El Salvador. The Justice Department said they would be flown back to Texas and returned to the detention center after landing, the ACLU said. “It must have been absolutely terrifying for them to think they would be returning to a country where they raised very credible claims of persecution and death,” said Eunice Lee, who is cocounsel in the case and is co-legal director at the University of CaliforniaHastings Center for Gender and Refugee Studies. The Justice Department declined a request for comment. To qualify for asylum, migrants must show that they have a fear of persecution in their native country based on their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a “particular social group,” a category that in the past has included victims of domestic violence and other abuse. Carmen fled El Salvador with her daughter in June, according to court records, fearing they would be killed by gang members who had demanded she pay them money each month or suffer consequences. Several co-workers at the factory where Carmen worked had been murdered, and her husband is also abusive, the records state. Under the fast-track removal system created in 1996, asylum seekers are interviewed to determine whether they have a “credible fear” of returning home. Those who pass get a full hearing in immigration court. In June, Sessions vacated a 2016 Board of Immigration Appeals court case that granted asylum to an abused woman from El Salvador. In that decision, Sessions said gang and domestic violence in most cases would no longer be grounds for receiving asylum.

Trump’s parents were sworn in as U.S. citizens on Thursday, completing a legal path to citizenship that their son-in-law has suggested eliminating. Viktor and Amalija Knavs, both in their 70s, took the citizenship oath at a private ceremony in New York City. The Slovenian immigrants, a former car dealer and textile factory worker, had been living in the U.S. as permanent residents. The Knavses slipped in and out of a side entrance at a Manhattan federal building flanked by Department of Homeland Security police. Some workers inside didn’t know what was going on. The couple said little, other than Viktor telling a reporter “thank you” when asked how they felt about becoming Americans. The Knavses’ lawyer said they had “travailed a wonderful journey.” Lawyer Michael Wildes said the Knavses applied for citizenship on their own and didn’t get any special treatment. He confirmed that Melania Trump sponsored their green cards. Her husband, President Donald Trump, has proposed ending most family-based immigration, which he refers to as “chain migration.” “This golden experiment, these doors that are in America, remain hinged open to beautiful people as they have today,” Wildes said after the ceremony. Amid a bitter debate over immigration — particularly the Trump administration’s separation of children from families crossing the border illegally — Wildes said the Knavses’ attaining citizenship was “an example of it going right.” Melania Trump, who has been vacationing with her husband in Bedminster, N.J., did not accompany her parents. Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, declined to comment. She said the first lady’s parents “are not part of the administration and de-

serve privacy.” Along with targeting illegal immigration, the president has proposed sharply curbing legal immigration. The Republican president proposed replacing most family-based immigration with a skills-based system after an attempted bombing by a Bangladeshi immigrant in New York in December. He also called for eliminating a visa lottery program for people from countries underrepresented in the U.S. The plan, which Trump reiterated last week at a Wilkes-Barre, Pa., rally, would limit immigrants such as his wife to sponsoring only their spouses and underage children to join them in the U.S. — not their parents, adult children or siblings. Experts estimate those measures, so far resisted by Congress, would cut legal immigration into the U.S. nearly in half. Wildes wouldn’t say how long the Knavses have lived in the U.S. Under the law, permanent residents must live in the country for at least

five years before applying for citizenship. The Knavses’ citizenship ceremony was kept hush-hush around the Jacob K. Javits Federal Building. Security guards and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services workers in offices adorned with President Trump’s portrait said they were unaware of anyone being sworn in there on Thursday. New citizens are normally minted on Fridays, they said, and often the ceremonies are held at the federal courthouse across the street. Viktor Knavs is 74, two years older than his son-in-law. Amalija Knavs is 73. Trump hasn’t commented or tweeted about his in-laws’ newfound citizenship. Around the same time the Knavses were completing the ceremony, the president was tweeting his rage about the ongoing Russia probe (“an illegally brought Rigged Witch Hunt”) and his excitement about plans for a sixth branch of the military (“Space Force all the way!”).

Army suspends discharges of immigrant recruits, for now

ST. LOUiS POST-DiSPaTCH • A13

History shared but unreconciled in Tuskegee’s Confederate statue

ASSOCIATED PRESS

A Pakistani recruit, 22, who was recently discharged from the U.S. Army, holds an American flag as he poses July 3 for a picture. The Army has stopped discharging immigrant recruits who enlisted seeking a path to citizenship — at least temporarily.

BY MARTHA MENDOZA AND GARANCE BURKE associated Press

The Army has stopped discharging immigrant recruits who enlisted seeking a path to citizenship — at least temporarily. A memo shared with The Associated Press on Wednesday and dated July 20 spells out orders to high-ranking Army officials to stop processing discharges of men and women who enlisted in the special immigrant program, effective immediately. It was not clear how many recruits were impacted by the action, and the Pentagon did not immediately respond to requests for comment about the memo. “Effective immediately, you will suspend processing of all involuntary separation actions,” read the memo signed by Acting Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs Marshall Williams. The disclosure comes one month after the AP reported that dozens of immigrant enlistees’ contracts were canceled or they were being discharged. Some said they were given no reason for their discharge. Others said the Army informed them they’d been labeled as security risks because they have relatives abroad or because the Defense Department had not completed background checks on them. Early last month, the Pentagon said there had been no specific policy change and that background checks were ongoing. And in mid-July the Army reversed

one discharge, for Brazilian reservist Lucas Calixto, 28, who had sued. Nonetheless, discharges of other immigrant enlistees continued. Attorneys sought to bring a class action lawsuit last week to offer protections to a broader group of reservists and recruits in the program, demanding that prior discharges be revoked and that further separations be halted. A judge’s order references the July 20 memo and asks the Army to clarify how it impacts the discharge status of Calixto and other plaintiffs. As part of the memo, Williams also instructed Army officials to recommend whether the military should issue further guidance related to the program. Margaret Stock, an Alaska-based immigration attorney and a retired Army Reserve lieutenant colonel who helped create the immigrant recruitment program, said Wednesday the memo proves there was a policy. “It’s an admission by the Army that they’ve improperly discharged hundreds of soldiers,” she said. “The next step should be go back and rescind the people who were improperly discharged.” Discharged recruits and reservists reached Wednesday said their discharges were still in place as far as they knew. One Pakistani man caught by surprise by his discharge said he was filing for asylum. He asked that his name be withheld because he fears he might be forced to return to Pakistan, where he could face danger as a former U.S. Army enlistee.

BY JAY REEVES associated Press

TUSKEGEE, ALA. • In 1906, when aging,

white Confederate veterans of the Civil War and black ex-slaves still lived on the old plantations of the Deep South, two very different celebrations were afoot in this city known even then as a beacon of black empowerment. Tuskegee Institute, founded to educate Southern blacks whose families had lived in bondage for generations, was saluting its 25th anniversary. Meanwhile, area whites were preparing to dedicate a monument to rebel soldiers in a downtown park set aside exclusively for white people. Flash forward to today, and that same Confederate monument still stands in the same park, both owned by a Confederate heritage group. They sit in the heart of a poor, mostly black town of 9,800 people. The story of how such a monument could remain in place a century later offers lessons in just how hard it can be to confront a shared history that still divides a nation. In 1860, before the Civil War, Census records show 1,020 white people owned 18,176 black people in Macon County, where Tuskegee sits. Education became nearly as big a need as food and shelter once the fighting stopped. Established by the Alabama Legislature, the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute was founded in 1881, according to the school’s official history. By the time of Tuskegee’s 25th anniversary, founder Booker T. Washington was widely acclaimed for advocating practical education, character building and hard work to lift blacks from poverty. Coverage of the anniversary festivities in The Tuskegee News, a white-owned newspaper, emphasized that blacks needed to get along with the whites who had near total control in the old Confederate states. Meanwhile, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, composed of female descendants of Confederate veterans, was erecting monuments glorifying the “lost cause” of the South across the region. The women of the Tuskegee chapter planned one for their town, holding events to raise money. Two months after the Tuskegee Institute anniversary, leaders of the white-

controlled county government gave the United Daughters the 2-acre downtown square to serve as a “park for white people” around a memorial to Macon County’s Confederate veterans, city records show. The monument finally was dedicated on Oct. 6, 1909. The Montgomery Advertiser called the ceremony “one of the largest masses of white people ever before witnessed in Tuskegee.” The nation’s first black combat pilots, the Tuskegee Airmen, trained in town in the 1940s, but not until the 1960s did the civil rights movement start changing political dynamics. Frustrated after an all-white jury in another county acquitted a white man accused of murder in the shooting death of a civil rights worker, Samuel L. Younge Jr., blacks took out their anger on the Confederate monument in 1966. On a night when rocks flew through windows around the town square, demonstrators identified in news accounts as Tuskegee students went after the Confederate monument, attaching a chain or rope to it. “We didn’t have a vehicle to topple it that night and that’s why it’s still there,” said Simuel Schutz Jr., 72, a demonstrator who is now a contractor in Trenton, N.J.. But protesters did have spray paint. They painted a yellow stripe down the back of the stone soldier with the words “black power” scrawled on the base in black paint. The United Daughters of the Confederacy still owns the square where the monument stands, and they don’t plan to remove it. “It is a wonderful addition to the downtown area and has been there for over 100 years, and the United Daughters see no reason for it to change,” said a letter to the city by an attorney for the group, Richard L. Wyatt. The few members still in town cleaned the statue after vandals tagged it with spray paint about three years ago, Wyatt said in an interview. Mayor Lawrence F. Haygood Jr. has said he understands why some people want the statue gone. But it’s unclear whether anything can be done, since Alabama legislators passed a law last year banning the removal or alteration of sites including Confederate monuments such as the one in Tuskegee.

Pulling the plug on Sinclair Death of Tribune Media sale is a big win for local TV news consumers.

D

ing dong, the wicked deal is dead. Tribune Media Co. has pulled out of its $3.9 billion merger with Sinclair Broadcast Group and instead plans to sue the media company for breach of contract. The breakup is a win for television news consumers who rely on free and independent reporting — especially here in St. Louis because of the huge impact this deal would have had on local viewership. Sinclair is America’s largest owner of local television stations, with more than 190 stations in 89 U.S. markets, including

KDNL (Channel 30) in St. Louis. The proposed acquisition would have extended Sinclair’s reach to 72 percent of U.S. households, potentially adding the two local Tribune-owned stations — KTVI (Channel 2) and KPLR (Channel 11) to the deal. Sinclair had agreed to divest stations in St. Louis and other markets to avoid one company from heavily controlling the airwaves, but the proposed divestiture was too problematic for federal regulators. A Tribune statement accuses Sinclair of balking at the sale of stations in required markets and proposing shady divestment structures and sales that might not have entailed giving up full control. For viewers,

it could have meant more of the same propaganda-style news delivery that had earned Sinclair national derision. The Federal Communications Commission had blocked the merger and asked an administrative law judge to determine whether Sinclair misled the FCC or acted with a lack of candor. Lack of candor is Sinclair’s middle name. It carefully scripted a commentary for all of its news presenters to read supporting the “fake news” assertions made by President Donald Trump against mainstream news media outlets. Local Sinclair stations have received orders to air “mustrun” commentary segments echoing conservative and Trump administration talking points. Media critic Jay Rosen tweeted that Tribune is essentially accusing Sinclair of being a “greedy, manipulative, lying, cheating company so brazen in its tactics that it couldn’t get this deal through the most accommodating FCC in history with a President hungry for it to happen.” It should not have come as a surprise to Tribune that a media company willing to manipulate the news would try to pull similar maneuvers in its financial dealings. Tribune has said it will seek compensation for all losses from the failed merger, an amount it estimates at more than $1 billion. The deal would have created a conservative television rival to Fox News, which may now see an opening to increase its local television holdings. In an age of rampant misinformation, including manipulation by Russia designed specifically to divide Americans and undermine our democracy, viewers must be able to trust the credibility of their local newscasts. This merger would have strayed far outside the bounds of public interest. St. Louis viewers and Tribuneowned stations have dodged an Orwellian overlord.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS It’s hard to understand ill will of local volunteer at PGA event Regarding John Ebert’s letter, “PGA event makes profits on the backs of civic-minded volunteers” (Aug. 4): I was dumbfounded to read that John Ebert felt used after volunteering his time at a golf tournament. I think that the key word is: volunteer. I wonder who forced him to commit to such a dastardly deed. Several of my friends are also volunteering at this great St. Louis event and were excited to have been accepted. I volunteer at the Fisher House in Jefferson Barracks and Sts. Peter and Paul Shelter. I consider it an honor and privilege to be able to use my time and talents doing what I enjoy. I’m sure that the PGA volunteers have the same feelings. The only time that I feel used is when the Democrats try to pass laws that are meant to drain my wallet to the extent that someday I might be living in a homeless shelter, depending on volunteers.

Looking at the front-page photo on the Aug. 8 Post-Dispatch, it’s those guys who benefit, not the little guys at the bottom. They will forever be little people never getting to their true potential.

Why aren’t we as a people trying to get folks as upwardly mobile as possible? Why this incessant need to count on other people for existence and sustenance? I guess I just can’t do it on my own; I must need someone else to take my earned money so I can assure myself of job security. It seems if that’s true, we are going backward or regressing away from the ideals that the founders left. The world is ruled by the aggressive use of force, so becoming weak is good?

Child separation issues go well beyond the borders Custody rights in U.S. come down to where you live and how much you can afford to pay an attorney, and that must change. BY CHRISTIAN PAASCH

News of children being forcibly separated from their parents at our borders has been understandably filling the news cycle for a while now. The latest figures show that 2,551 migrant children have been taken, with 1,012 of them reunited Paasch with parents, but nearly 1,000 children have been deemed “not eligible” for reunification. If you are among the throngs of reasonable humans who cringe at such a derisive and impactful categorization, you are not alone. Simply and kindly put, “not eligible for reunification”

is a crazy term assigned to children who want to and should be reunited with their parents. As traumatic and terrible as the situation at our borders has become, the fact remains that it is merely one part of a much bigger societal problem in America. Even bigger than Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., recently painted on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when he said it is “not in the best interest of children to (separate them from their mother or father).” A growing uproar in this discussion highlights the inconvenient and uncomfortable truth that the policy of forced separation has existed and been applied to American children for decades in our family courts. Obviously in certain circumstances, whether at the border or in families across the country, there may be instances

where children should be separated from parents for their own safety, but those are in the minority of cases and are not what we are talking about here. Instead, we are talking about a 1950s American policy that has existed for decades with our own children, so it wasn’t too much of a stretch to apply this same line of thinking to immigrant children. To be clear, neither of these instances of separation is OK. The point, though, is that this kind of forced separation is more systemic than just at our borders with one group of children and families. It is a terribly outdated policy that puts children at risk — and hurts women and men equally by forcing them into roles that we might only see in the TV show “Mad Men.” The truth is that forced separation of children from one of their parents happens every day in our country, in more than 80 percent of cases, yet relatively few Americans know about it. Many people assume that family courts

operate by the same standards and provide the same rights to litigants as criminal court does. In reality, the exact opposite is true. Right to an attorney, right to a speedy trial, rules of evidence, right to a trial by jury, etc., do not exist or apply within family court. Instead, it is a world of subjective interpretations of the law that vary greatly among ZIP codes — even within the same state, as highlighted in a study about North Dakota custody. In short, children’s futures are subject to where they live and what kind of attorneys their parents can afford. That is 100 percent antithetical to everything America has ever stood and stands for. It is clearly not best for children, and therefore not best for society. If these revelations shock you, congratulations. You are human, and you are also right. The next important step is to do something about it. Groups including Let Grow, Moms Demand Action, Moms Rising, LW4SP and National Parents Organization

must combine efforts and resources to address the broader societal issue of needlessly separating kids from their parents. Yes, children and families at our borders are suffering and we should help them, but countless more children and families within our own borders have been systematically separated for decades — most of the time for no good reason other than “it’s just how we’ve always done it.” We must enact responsible policies, like shared parenting laws recently enacted in Virginia and Kentucky, to help whittle the challenge down to those children and families who actually need to be protected. This will allow us to focus even more resources on them than are allocated now, and in the process actually help those children who desperately need it. Christian Paasch is Chair of National Parents Organization in Virginia. He recently helped lead efforts to pass a new shared parenting law in the Commonwealth.

Only the

‘finest’ people The people Trump hires, admires and associates with tell us a lot about his character. None of it good. KEVIN McDERMOTT St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Two items in the news this week are more related than they sound: Paul Manafort went on trial for allegedly failing to pay taxes on millions of dollars he made lobbying for a Russiaaffiliated Ukrainian political party; and conspiracy-monger Alex Jones was partly banished from Facebook and other online platforms for violating hate-speech policies. The common thread? President Donald Trump — the man who surrounds himself with only the “finest” people. Jones is known for “false flag” campaigns claiming that mass shootings were “staged” to promote gun control. The 20 dead children of Sandy Hook, he’s claimed, were actors. When some grieving parents sued him over this torment, he countersued for legal expenses. You don’t have to have lost a child to understand that this is truly a cockroach of a man. “Your reputation is amazing!” Trump told Jones while appearing on his online show in 2015 — well after Jones’ Sandy Hook outrage and many other offenses. Trump added: “I will not let you down.” True to his word for once, shortly after the inauguration, Trump’s White House approved press credentials for Jones’ InfoWars “news” site — which subsequently promoted the allegation that NASA is running a child-slave colony on Mars. (NASA, you will be relieved to learn, has denied it.) Then there’s Manafort, who was Trump’s campaign chairman. Trump, savvy businessman that he is, apparently didn’t pause when this man with deep Russian connections offered to chair his campaign for no salary. Manafort was part of the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting, where (Trump himself brazenly admitted last week) participants were hoping to get dirt on his

campaign opponent from a Russian government operative. Manafort’s trial this week aired an almost comedic laundry list of bad behavior. While lavishly spending millions of his Russian-tainted dollars — some on weird and slightly evil-sounding stuff like an “ostrich leather coat” — Manafort was allegedly hiding it from the IRS with aid of assistant Rick Gates, who would later be the Trump campaign’s secondin-charge. Gates testified this week that, as he was helping Manafort evade taxes, he also was embezzling from him, in part to fund a transatlantic extramarital affair. Yes, these were the two top people in the campaign who gave us our

current president. The finest people. Remember Steve Bannon, the former top Trump adviser? He virtually invented the Alt-Right, a movement centered on “white nationalism,” which is a stone’s throw from white supremacy. Bannon is reportedly spending his time lately meeting with foreign figures like hard-right Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and French Nazi sympathizer Marine Le Pen in hopes of organizing … something. Cue the ominous music. Remember Corey Lewandowski? He’s the former Trump campaign manager who responded to the subject of a girl with Down syndrome who had been separated from her mother at the border with,“Womp,

Womp” — as in, the you lose sound in a game show. This paragon of class and compassion is reportedly still a shadow adviser to Trump. Remember former Trump security adviser Sebastian Gorka, who had alleged ties to a Hungarian organization with historic Nazi roots? Gorka was recently banned from appearing on some Fox News shows for being too sycophantic toward the president — no small feat. Remember Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime “fixer”? Turns out he was secretly recording his conversations with Trump and is now using those recordings against him. Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has declared Cohen a “scumbag.” So what does that make the client who employed him for all those years? Doesn’t who we hire, admire and associate with say something fundamental about our own character? Republicans used to think so. Barack Obama took no end of grief for his relatively casual associations with a minister who criticized America and a neighbor who happened to be a washed up left-wing radical. Compare that to Trump, who hangs out with right-wing radicals just this side of Nazism, and whose entire presidential campaign was premised on the declaration that America isn’t currently great. Trump has watched three campaign or White House associates plead guilty of lying to investigators; had two cabinet members and multiple other top officials resign for ethics offenses; endorsed a credibly accused pedophile for the U.S. Senate; has used his pardon power to aid avowed bigots and bullies; and has praised murderous foreign dictators while backhanding democratically elected leaders of our allies. Trump calls journalists “really bad people.” Knowing what he defines as the “finest” people, we’ll take it.

“Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him.” So says Carolyn Bryant Donham in historian Timothy B. Tyson’s 2017 book,“The Blood of Emmett Till.” You keep hoping for more, hoping to hear her wrestle with her crime, explain how she could have done what she did — and how she lives with herself now. But in the end, the admission is all she gives, the only glimpse you get into how she views her role in one of history’s signature atrocities, the brutal lynching of a 14-year-old Chicago boy who supposedly got fresh with her one fateful day in her family store in the nothing town of Money, Miss., and the acquittal of his killers, Donham’s husband and his half-brother.“Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him,” she says now, as if that hasn’t been glaringly obvious for 63 years, ever since Till’s bloated, mutilated corpse was fished from the Tallahatchie River. Still, her words are historic. This is apparently Donham’s first public statement on the notorious case since right after it happened. In the book, she also recants the most explosive part of her 1955 accusation — that Till cursed at her and grabbed her, his brown hands transgressing her white purity. Last month, apparently because of this revelation, the Justice Department opened a new investigation. Me, I don’t care one way or the other if Donham goes to jail. But I’d love to see her be required for the record to finally grapple with what she did. Who knows? It might inspire America to do the same. That there is a need for this is evidenced by the fact that someone keeps shooting up a sign on the riverbank marking the spot where Till’s body was found. As noted in this space at the time, a student filmmaker found it pocked with dozens of bullet holes back in 2016. The marker was replaced in June. This week comes news that someone has already put new holes in it. Understand: You’ve got to go through some trouble to shoot up this sign. According to The Washington Post, it lies in an isolated spot two miles down a gravel road. Obviously, someone has a grudge against it. Emmett Till Apparently, the truth it tells is still red and raw even now, 23,000 days after the fact. Granted, that truth is awful. Meaning that America regularly condoned — and, yes, condones — the extralegal killing of black children. Many of us are unwilling to face truths like that, as in a study by the Public Religion Research Institute, quantifying that most Republicans do not believe significant racial discrimination exists. Which is sad. This will be a better nation the day we stop lying to ourselves about who we were and what we are, the day we own up to the blood shed, bones splintered, sins committed and calumnies told to make America “great,” the day we finally find the guts to admit what happened to Emmett, and to Trayvon and Tamir — and why. I don’t expect “justice” if Donham ends up in court. She has lived into her 80s. Emmett Till is a teenager forever. So there can be no justice. But truth would be nice. Problem is, for some people, it would be frightening, too. Why else, after 23,000 days, does anyone feel compelled to go two miles down a hard road to shoot up a sign that speaks only historical fact? In the process, they turn a reminder of what America was into a monument to what America too often is, a nation unable or unwilling to own up to itself. The octogenarian who lied Emmett Till to death is an icon of that failure.“Nothing that boy did,” she says,“could ever justify what happened to him.” You keep hoping for more. But even that took her a lifetime to say. Leonard Pitts Jr. lpitts@miamiherald.com Copyright The Miami Herald Distributed by Tribune Content Agency

Court orders ban on pesticide, says EPA violated law ASSOCIATED PRESS

• A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that the administration of President Donald Trump endangered public health by keeping a widely used pesticide on the market despite extensive scientific evidence that even tiny levels of exposure can harm babies’ brains. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to remove chlorpyrifos from sale in the United States within 60 days. A coalition of farmworkers and environmental groups sued last year after thenEPA chief Scott Pruitt reversed an Obamaera effort to ban chlorpyrifos, which is widely sprayed on citrus fruit, apples and

other crops. The attorneys general for several states joined the case against EPA, including California, New York and Massachusetts. In a split decision, the court said Thursday that Pruitt, a Republican forced to resign earlier this summer amid ethics scandals, violated federal law by ignoring the conclusions of agency scientists that chlorpyrifos is harmful. “The panel held that there was no justification for the EPA’s decision in its 2017 order to maintain a tolerance for chlorpyrifos in the face of scientific evidence that its residue on food causes neurodevelopmental damage to children,” Judge Jed S. Rakoff wrote in the court’s opinion. Michael Abboud, spokesman for acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler,

said the agency was reviewing the decision, but it had been unable to “fully evaluate the pesticide using the best available, transparent science.” EPA could potentially appeal to the Supreme Court since one member of the three-judge panel dissented from the majority ruling. Environmental groups and public health advocates celebrated the court’s action as a major success. “The court has made it clear that children’s health must come before powerful polluters,” said Erik Olson, senior director of health and food at the Natural Resources Defense Council. The attorneys general of California and New York also claimed victory. “This is one more example of how then-

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt skirted the law and endangered the health of our children — in this case, all because he refused to curb pesticide levels found in food,” Attorney General Xavier Becerra of California said in a statement. Chlorpyrifos was created by Dow Chemical Co. in the 1960s. It remains among the most widely used agricultural pesticides in the United States, with the chemical giant selling about 5 million pounds domestically each year through its subsidiary Dow AgroSciences. Dow did not respond to an email seeking comment. In past statements, the company has contended the chemical helps American farmers feed the world “with full respect for human health and the environment.”

Argentine Senate rejects legalizing elective abortion

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA • Argentina’s Senate on Thurs-

day rejected a bill to legalize elective abortion, a defeat for a grassroots movement that came closer than ever to achieving the decriminalization of the procedure in the homeland of Pope Francis. Lawmakers debated for more than 15 hours before voting 38-31 against the measure that would have allowed abortion in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. The decision could echo across Latin America, where anti-abortion forces remain strong even if the Roman Catholic Church has lost influence due to secularization and an avalanche of sex abuse scandals. For long hours, thousands of supporters wearing green handkerchiefs that represent the effort to legalize abortion and opponents wearing light blue braved the heavy rain and cold temperatures in Argentina’s winter to watch the debate on large screens set up outside Congress.

The demonstrations were largely peaceful, but after the vote, small groups of protesters clashed with police, throwing firebombs and setting up flaming barricades. Police officers responded with tear gas. Pushed by a wave of demonstrations by women’s groups, the lower house had already passed the measure and conservative President Mauricio Macri had said that he would sign it, even though he opposes abortion. After the decision, Macri said that the debate would continue. The government is also expected to include a measure in the penal code that would decriminalize abortion, although it would not legalize the practice. “We’ve shown that we have matured as a society and that we can debate with the depth and seriousness that all Argentines expected ... and democracy won,” Macri said after the vote. In Argentina, abortion is only allowed in cases of rape and risks to a woman’s health. Thousands of women, most of them poor, are hospitalized each year for complications linked to unsafe abortions.

Pro-choice activists stand with their arms up before police outside argentina’s Congress, where clashes broke out after activists learned lawmakers rejected a bill that would have legalized elective abortion in the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. Backers of the measure said legalizing abortion would save the life of many women. The Health Ministry estimated in 2016 that the country sees as many as half a million clandestine abortions each year, with dozens of women dying as a result. The Catholic Church and other groups opposed it, saying it violated Argentine law guaranteeing life from the moment of conception. In recent years, Argentina has been at the forefront of social movements in the region. In 2010, it became the first country in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage. More recently, the Ni Una Menos, or Not One Less, movement that was created in Argentina to fight violence against women has grown into a global phenomenon. The abortion issue pitted the Catholic Church against feminist groups, physicians against physicians. While abortionrights activists waited for the decision under umbrellas, opponents gathered Wednesday night at a “Mass for Life” at the Metropolitan Cathedral, the church of Pope Francis during his tenure as the archbishop of

Buenos Aires. “It’s not about religious beliefs but about a humanitarian reason,” Cardinal Mario Poli, the archbishop of Buenos Aires, told churchgoers. “Caring for life is the first human right and the duty of the state.” Pope Francis this year denounced abortion as the “white glove” equivalent of the Naziera eugenics program and urged families “to accept the children that God gives them.” Activists estimate that 3,030 women in Argentina have died of illegal abortions since 1983. “Let’s recognize that we’re facing a public health tragedy,” said Magdalena Odarda, a senator for Rio Negro province. “We’re not deciding abortion yes or no. We’re deciding abortion in a hospital, or illegal abortion, with a clothes hanger, or anything else that puts a woman in a humiliating, degrading situation — a real torture,” she said. Many women in Argentina use misoprostol to end first-trimester pregnancies. The drug is only sold under prescription, but for the poorest women the cost of the drug is out of reach.

Statehood decision surprises Israel Israel’s Foreign Ministry says it is “surprised” by Colombia’s decision to recognize Palestinian statehood. Colombia’s foreign minister said Wednesday that the outgoing government of President Juan Manuel Santos made the decision last week, shortly before leaving office. The new government of President Ivan Duque, who was sworn in Tuesday, said it would study his predecessor’s decision but acknowledged it was legal. Israel’s Foreign Ministry said Thursday it was waiting for an explanation from the new administration.

The National Assembly on Thursday marked Juan Requesens’ seat with a sign saying he’s missing or kidnapped. Officials arrested Requesens on Tuesday. He and fellow lawmaker Julio Borges are charged with the attempted assassination of Maduro using drones loaded with explosives. Rafaela Requesens says her brother was arrested for being a critic of Maduro’s repressive regime — not a criminal.

Similar waves of floating seaweed have coated beaches throughout the Caribbean. Costa Rica court makes gay marriage legal • Costa Rica’s supreme court has given the country’s legislature 18 months to change the law to allow gay marriage.

NATO exercises halted over missile firing • Estonia’s defense minister has ordered a halt to NATO air exercises in Estonia pending an investigation after a missile was accidentally fired over the Baltic country’s airspace by a Spanish fighter jet on a military exercise this week.

SANAA, YEMEN • An airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition fighting Shiite rebels hit a bus driving in a busy market in northern Yemen on Thursday, killing at least 50 people including children and wounding 77, Yemen’s rebel-run Al Masirah TV said citing rebel Health Ministry figures. The Saudi-led coalition, meanwhile, said it targeted the rebels, known as Houthis, who had fired a missile at the kingdom’s south on Wednesday, killing one person who was a Yemeni resident in the area. Al Masirah TV aired dramatic images of wounded children, their clothes and schoolbags covered with blood as they lay on hospital stretchers. The International Committee of the Red Cross said on Twitter that its team at an ICRC-supported hospital in Saada received the bodies of 29 children, all under 15 years old. It also received 48 wounded people, including 30 children, it said. The attack took place in the Dahyan market in Saada province, a Houthi stronghold. The province lies along the border with Saudi Arabia. The bus was ferrying local civilians, including many children, according to Yemeni tribal leaders who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals. There was no breakdown in the casualties and it was not immediately clear how many of the victims were on the bus itself and how many were pedestrians in the immediate area around it. It was also unclear if there were other airstrikes in the area. Col. Turki al-Malki, a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition, said the attack in Saada targeted the rebels who had fired a missile at the kingdom’s south, killing one person and wounding 11 others. The coalition said Wednesday’s projectile, fired toward the southwestern Saudi city of Jizan, was intercepted and destroyed but its fragments caused the casualties.

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO •

Puerto Rico is estimating in a report to Congress that Hurricane Maria killed more than 1,400 people, though an island official said Thursday that the confirmed toll remains frozen at 64 pending a scientific review due out soon. The government, relying on updated statistics it first reported in June, said in a report to Congress detailing a $139 billion reconstruction plan that there were 1,427 more deaths from September to December 2017 than the average for the same time period over the previous four years. The territory’s government said that the additional deaths resulted from the effects of a storm that led to “cascading failures” in infrastructure across the island of 3.3 million people. The administration of Gov. Ricardo Rossello stopped updating its official death toll months ago and ordered an investigation

amid reports that the number was substantially undercounted. Public Safety Department Secretary Hector Pesquera said the new total will reflect the findings of the investigation, which is expected to be completed in the coming weeks. The figure of more than 1,400, Pesquera said, “is simple math” based on the number of excess deaths. “This is not the official number of deaths attributable to Hurricane Maria,” he said. Hurricane Maria, which struck just two weeks after Hurricane Irma passed near enough to cause damage to the island, knocked out power and water across Puerto Rico and caused widespread flooding that left many sick and elderly people unable to get medical treatment. “The hurricanes’ devastating effects on people’s health and safety cannot be overstated,” the government said in the report seeking assistance from Congress to help rebuild an island that was already struggling from a deep economic crisis at the time of the storm.

In the weeks after the storm, Puerto Rican officials said the storm directly caused 64 deaths, many in landslides or flooding. But they have also said that more people likely died due to indirect effects of the powerful storm. “We always anticipated that this number would increase as more official studies were conducted,” Pesquera said. The government commissioned an independent epidemiological study by George Washington University and the Milken Institute of Public Health that is due in coming weeks. The use of the higher death toll in the report to Congress was first reported Thursday by The New York Times. Most of the deaths occurred not in the initial storm on Sept. 20, but in the ensuing days and weeks when the islandwide electricity outage and roads blocked by downed power lines and other debris made it difficult to move around and emergency services were stretched beyond their capabilities.

Greek leader promises disaster agency overhaul • The prime minister of Greece pledged Thursday to overhaul the national disaster response agency as authorities publicly named the people killed by the country’s deadliest forest fire in decades — victims whose ages ranged from 6 months to 95 years. The fire “deeply wounded all of us,” Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said. “But we have a duty to take a deep and careful look at everything that happened, to learn and to correct possible lapses.” Poles want choice on climate policies • Polish trade union leaders and government officials at a climate conference called Thursday for nations to protect industrial jobs and be given the freedom to choose their own approaches to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The two-day meeting that opened in Katowice aimed to work out the positions of Poland’s trade unions and industry before an international climate summit in December taking place in the industrial city. At the Dec. 3-14 summit, more than 190 countries taking part in the 2015 Paris Agreement are to work out a rulebook for implementing the landmark climate accord. From news services

Judge in Manafort trial concedes mistake WASHINGTON POST

A L E X A N D R I A , VA . •

The judge overseeing Paul Manafort’s trial, who has berated prosecutors daily for perceived missteps and slights, told the jury Thursday to ignore one of his outbursts, saying he was “probably wrong.” U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III, a 78-year-old jurist with a reputation for being tough on lawyers in his courtroom, showed none of the temper he’s flashed throughout the trial, now in its second week in Alexandria, Va., and instead instructed the jury to disregard his remarks made the day before. The judge had excoriated prosecutors for allowing an expert government witness to sit in the courtroom before he testified. Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, is accused of bank fraud and tax evasion. It’s the first trial to emerge from special counsel Robert Mueller III’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether

any of Trump’s associates conspired with those efforts, though Manafort’s case is not about those issues. During Wednesday’s dust-up, Assistant U.S. attorney Uzo Asonye pointed out that the judge had previously told prosecutors the witness could sit in the courtroom, and the judge shot back: “I don’t care what the transcript said. Maybe I made a mistake. Don’t do it again.” Overnight, prosecutors filed a motion with the court asking the judge to tell the jury to ignore that criticism. “While mistakes are a natural part of the trial process, the mistake here prejudiced the government by conveying to the jury that the government had acted improperly and had violated court rules or procedures,” the prosecutors wrote. On Thursday morning, the judge told the jury, “I may well have been wrong,” adding that he had not read the court transcript. “I was probably wrong,” Ellis said.

prison time. Prosecutors say that from 2010 to 2014, Manafort hid $15.5 million in overseas accounts, which he did not report to the IRS. He made that money doing political consulting in Ukraine, but when the work dried up in 2015, authorities say, he lied to secure bank loans to maintain his luxurious lifestyle. Melinda James, a mortgage loan assistant at Citizens Bank, told jurors how Manafort obtained a $3.4 million cash-out refinance in 2016 on a property he owned in Lower Manhattan. In applying for the loan, Manafort claimed the property was a second home, but prosecutors introduced as evidence a 2015 tax return indicating the property generated about $100,000 in rental income.

vati, said Gates was to blame for any errors in the loan application. Nanavati also suggested that, even though the property was listed for rent on Airbnb for more than a year, it could still be used as a primary residence. Another witness, Citizens Bank Vice President Peggy Miceli, said Manafort would not have gotten the $3.4 million loan if the bank had known it was a rental property. “The loan was way over the maximum” for an investment property rather than a home, she said. The terms of Manafort’s loan also allowed him to withdraw cash from the bank, and Miceli testified that was not allowed for loans against investment properties. Prosecutors expect to finish questioning their witnesses Friday. It’s unclear how many witnesses Manafort’s defense team will present to the jury.

Ellis had repeatedly chided prosecutors, both in front of the jury and out of their hearing, during the trial. He has had far fewer outbursts directed at defense lawyers, but prosecutors have been doing the bulk of the questioning so far. “Judge Ellis seems to want the lawyers to try the case the way he would try the case,” said Gillers. “There are judges like that, but that’s not good for trials. What Judge Ellis is doing is impeding the autonomy that the law grants to the advocates.” After several days of testimony from the prosecution’s star witness, Manafort’s former righthand man Rick Gates, the jury heard Thursday from bank employees and executives who testified about the alleged false claims Manafort made to obtain millions of dollars in loans.

“This robe doesn’t make me any more than a human,” he said, concluding, “Any criticism of counsel should be put aside — it doesn’t have anything to do with this case.” Ellis’ eruptions have been noticed inside and outside the courtroom. Stephen Gillers, a professor of legal ethics and evidence at New York University, said the judge was right to make a corrective statement to the jurors. “The jury is very sensitive to what it perceives, correctly or not, to be the judge’s view of the case,” Gillers said. “A jury of lay people is going to be encouraged to reach a belief which could well be incorrect — that the judge knows who should win, and through his behavior he’s telegraphing that belief. And that’s why it’s critical that any judicial admonition, even mild ones, occur outside the jury’s presence.”

gency responders, and at least one local city and one local EMS and fire district are giving it a try. SirenGPS was founded by Paul Rauner, who says he saw a need for the app when he was doing consulting work for hospitals and companies that had issues with

communications during emergencies. Since the company’s founding in 2012, communities in Texas, Iowa, Missouri and Georgia have started using its tools. One of those communities is Rock Hill, where residents are being encouraged to use the app. If someone dials 911 from the app in Rock Hill, information they have supplied in the app will appear on a dispatcher’s computer screen before the dispatch center’s phone even rings. The app also has a feature that allows users to type messages to dispatchers, for situations when speaking is difficult or dangerous. “What we have heard from our dispatchers is that in an emergency it can be difficult to get an accurate address See SIREN • Page B5

It wasn’t so long ago that Leanne Caret, head of Boeing’s defense division, was warning of a grim future for one of the planemaker’s marquee fighter jets. As finance chief of the business that has sizable operations in St. Louis County, Caret helped draft a disclosure tucked into the company’s 2014 annual report saying production of the F/A-18 Super Hornet was at risk of shutting down by 2018 due to stalled sales. But doomsday never came for the plane — and Caret is now presiding over a resurgence for the Super Hornet

Aging fleets of buses and other dieselpowered vehicles across Missouri may now have some help swapping in newer replacements with lower emissions. That’s because the bulk of the state’s $41.1 million from the Volkswagen emissions scandal will be put toward replacing vehicles, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources announced this week. After months of deliberation and weighing public input, the agency released a plan Monday to guide use of the funds. In estimates rounded to the nearest million dollars, the DNR said efforts to replace school buses will get the biggest chunk of the money —a $12 million slice that could grow to up to $18 million — although pools of funding will be spread out across eight programs in total, covering a wide range of other vehicle replacement initiatives. Those initiatives will enable application-based upgrades through matching and cost-sharing disbursements of the money within a 10-year period. Besides school buses, other eligible vehicles include government and nongovernment trucks; transit and shuttle buses; locomotives, ferries and towboats; and airport and cargo equipment. Only about $6 million of the total is not expected to help replace vehicles, with that amount designated for electric vehicle charging stations. Missouri’s share of Volkswagen’s $14 billion overall settlement was based on the 7,500 vehicles in the state that the company equipped with “defeat de-

MARYLAND HEIGHTS • Say you own an online gift shop and want to start selling bath bombs, a trendy aromatherapy product that fizzes when submerged in a tub of water. You could write a whimsical description of their effervescent properties, put up photos of the colorful, palm-sized spheres and rely on the momentum of their popularity to drive sales. Or you could build a 2,000-pound bath bomb and unleash it into your backyard swimming pool.

Travis Liebig’s grandmother used to introduce him as “my grandson, the banker” until the financial crisis, when he became simply “my grandson, Travis.” When Liebig asked about the change, she said, “Oh, no, I can’t tell them that.” After the mortgage meltdown and big-bank bailouts, bankers had become villains in the public eye. His grandma died a few months ago, but Liebig thinks she’d once again be proud of his profession. On Thursday, he led a group that closed on the purchase of St. Louis Bank, based in Town and Country, where Liebig will be president and chief executive. St. Louis Bank, which opened in 2005, was part of a crop of local banks founded in the early 2000s. They grew rapidly until the recession, after which some of them failed and others were bogged down by problem loans and could no longer grow. Three survivors from that era have been sold in recent months, including Superior Bank in Hazelwood and Business Bank in Clayton. Superior, now called Paramount Bank, was bought by a mortgage company, and Business Bank is being bought by Stifel Financial, a large brokerage firm. Liebig’s plan for St. Louis Bank is different. He plans to remain an independent community bank specializing in small-business lending.

Boeing’s fighters enjoy comeback BOEING • FROM B1

and another Boeing fighter, the F-15 Strike Eagle. “One of the greatest joys I’ve had in this role is watching those statements being removed from the disclosures,” Caret said in an interview at the Farnborough air show last month in the U.K. “It is one of the highlights of my career.” With those planes enjoying unlikely comebacks, Caret is focusing on a tougher goal: restoring growth. The defense business has shrunk as government budgets sagged and Boeing lost out to Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman on nextgeneration U.S. aircraft programs. Boeing’s long-delayed tanker is poised to bring fresh momentum. Caret is also angling to win Pentagon contests for a trainer jet and a refueling drone. That’s giving her the chance to bolster the $21 billion defense division, overshadowed as Boeing’s commercial-jet sales boomed this decade. She took the reins of Boeing’s Defense, Space & Security division two years ago, promoted by Chief Executive Officer Dennis Muilenburg — himself a former head of the unit. Caret, 51, sunny and self-effacing in person, is every bit as driven as her Diet Mountain Dew-drinking boss, said Loren Thompson, a defense analyst at the Lexington Institute who knows both executives. “She is unfailingly courteous and engaging, but never misses an opportunity to undercut her competitors,” Thompson said in an interview. Caret has her share of hurdles to overcome. The company is scheduled to deliver the first plane from its biggest new military franchise, the KC-46 tanker, in October. But that’s after the aerial gas station has generated cost overruns totaling $3.4 billion, including a charge that marred Boeing’s earnings report last month. On another front, the Chicago-based aerospace giant is falling behind Elon

MEDICAL RESEARCH ROUNDUP

Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp. in the race to be the first company to ferry U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station. Part of Boeing’s delay arose from a propellant leak in June during a launch-abort engine test in New Mexico. Still, Caret is reaping new orders and services revenue from Boeing fighter jets many had dismissed. Lockheed was supposed to render Boeing’s decades-old warplanes obsolete with its F-35 Lighting II, also known as the Joint Strike Fighter. But these days Boeing is finding success pitching its aircraft as cheaper, lower mainte- Caret nance and highly capable companions to the stealthy F-35, the Pentagon’s costliest weapons system. In one closely watched contest, Israel is weighing ordering about two dozen F-15 fighters against taking more of the F-35. If the deal goes Boeing’s way, Israel would become the first Joint Strike Fighter customer to place an add-on order for the 45-year-old F-15. Such an outcome isn’t outlandish. Regional rivals Qatar and Saudi Arabia are loading up on more advanced versions of the Strike Eagle. Any Israeli air offensive is likely to be a joint attack using both aircraft, said Sason Hadad, who retired last year as a brigadier general. The F-35 would be needed for its stealth capacity, while the F-15 would bring maneuverability and ability to carry a much heavier payload, he said. Israel has bought about 50 F-35s and in May became the first country to use it in combat — in Syria. Hadad, a researcher at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, said Israel now needs to build up its fleet of F-15s. “The dilemma is real and the decisions are being made now,” he said. Caret declined to discuss negotiations with Israel and other customers, saying only, “I suspect that we haven’t seen the end of our F-15 orders.” Boeing is also discussing an upgrade known as the F-15X with the U.S. Air Force, said a person familiar with the matter. While the Pentagon last ordered the

twin-engine fighter in the 2001-2002 time frame, the Air Force would benefit from technology investments already made by international customers such as Saudi Arabia, including glass cockpit displays, enhanced radar and fly-by-wire controls. The proposed variant would also have an eye-popping payload of 22 air-to-air missiles, according to an account of the talks published by TheDrive.com. That compares with 12 for the Saudi version and eight for the F-15E currently flown by the U.S. “The F-15’s capabilities might keep it on the market a lot longer than anyone expected,” said Richard Aboulafia, an analyst with Teal Group. “In terms of range, speed and payload, really it’s in a class by itself.” The Super Hornet, designed to land on aircraft carrier decks, is also enjoying a renaissance. A favorite of President Donald Trump, the jet is seeing renewed sales to help bolster the Navy’s air wing that was stretched thin by budget cuts and delays to the F-35C, said George Ferguson, an analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence. Congress has approved a defense budget that would add 24 Super Hornets in fiscal 2019, and 110 jets through 2023. The Barack Obama administration had proposed ending purchases of the plane this year. There are potential overseas sales as well: Finland is looking at the EA-18G Growler, a variant that jams electronic communications. Meanwhile, Germany, India and Switzerland are studying the F/A-18, said a Boeing executive who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly. Another potential customer is Canada. Despite a public falling out and a canceled order after a Boeing-initiated trade spat last year, the two sides have continued to hold robust talks. Boeing met with Canadian officials several times this summer, including at the Farnborough trade expo, the executive said. Then there are two important new franchises expected to be awarded by the Pentagon over the next few months: a $16 billion contract for T-X trainer jets to hone the flying skills of military pilots, and the $7 billion MQ-25 program to provide carrier-based refueling drones. Both pit Boeing against Lockheed.

BUSINESS DIGEST JCPenney expands baby product lineup • JCPenney will stock more baby products at its stores near some shuttered Babies R Us stores, whose bankrupt parent company Toys R Us closed all stores earlier this year. JCPenney, which has nine locations in the St. Louis area, said it was expanding its selection of cribs, strollers and car seats from brands such as Fisher Price and Dr. Brown’s at 500 stores, starting Aug. 30. Locally, JCPenney stores at South County Center, West County Center and St. Clair Square are adding baby shops this month. “We’ve strategically chosen these 500 JCPenney locations because the majority of the stores are near a specialty baby retailer that has recently closed its doors,” the company said Thursday. Babies R Us was the go-to destination for parents looking for cribs, pacifiers and diaper bags before it shut its stores in June due to the bankruptcy of its parent company. JCPenney could help Mattel Inc.’s Fisher Price, which has seen sales tumble since the collapse of Toys R Us and Babies R Us. Rite Aid and Albertsons terminate $24 billion merger • Drugstore chain Rite Aid and U.S. grocer Albertsons Companies agreed to terminate their merger agreement, a little more than a week after a shareholder advisory firm opposed the deal. Last month, Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. had said that Rite Aid investors should vote down its $24 billion merger with Albertsons, saying the agreement was not going to give the drug store chain’s shareholders a “fair ownership interest” in the combined company. The ISS report was seen as a blow to Albertsons and its majority owner, private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LP, who were hoping that the deal would help them win new business amid pressure from retailers including Amazon.com and Walmart.

Jack in the Box’s new ad generates controversy • Jack in the Box is drawing criticism for its new TV commercial, which features not-so-subtle references to male genitalia. The ad for the burger chain’s new Teriyaki Bowls riffs off the word “bowls” and how similar it sounds to a slang term for testicles. The ad’s wink-wink attitude during a time when many people are coming forward to talk about sexual harassment in the workplace is upsetting to some. Adweek, a trade publication that covers the advertising industry, called it “one of the most tonedeaf ads of the #MeToo era.” The star of the commercial, the cartoon-headed mascot named Jack, tells viewers, “While other burger places serve the same old stuff, I’m the only one with the bowls to serve something different.” He later informs a male office mate, “You’ve got some pretty nice bowls there. And so does Dan.” A female co-worker adds, “Those are some nice bowls,” and another woman chimes in, “Everyone’s gonna want to get their hands on Jack’s bowls.” Online mattress seller Casper plans 200 stores • Online mattress seller Casper plans to open 200 stores in the U.S. over the next three years as part of an effort to solidify its position in the retail market. The four-year-old company has been testing locations by opening 20 stores with short-term leases over the last few years. It opened its first permanent store in Manhattan this year. Its expansion comes as Houston-based Mattress Firm is reportedly considering filing for bankruptcy. Casper CEO Philip Krim says the company’s stores have been very successful, since shoppers like to touch and try out mattresses. The company is among a slew of online retailers including Untuckit and Warby Parker that are stepping up the pace at which they expand their store locations. From staff and wire reports

S&P 500, Dow down, NASDAQ up; Apple ripens while Tesla crashes BY CAROLINE VALETKEVITCH reuters

The S&P 500 and Dow ended down slightly on Thursday as gains in Apple and Amazon were offset by losses in energy and financial shares. Tesla Inc.’s shares also fell to a two-day low and wiped out all of the gains fueled by Chief Executive Elon Musk’s recent tweet announcing a plan to take the company private. The stock ended down 4.8 percent. The S&P 500 was in slightly positive territory most of the day, putting it once again close to the record high it hit Jan. 26. The Nasdaq also neared its alltime high. The technology sector has been at the center of a sharp recovery in U.S. stocks since a market rout in February. Shares of Apple rose 0.8 percent, while those of Amazon

were up 0.6 percent. “It’s hard pressed for this market to really leap ahead. It’s been a slow, steady climb, led by an increasingly smaller number of companies,” said Rick Meckler, partner at Cherry Lane Investments, a family investment office in New Vernon, N.J. “ S o m e h ow, te c h n o l o g y seems a little more insulated” from concerns facing some companies, including trade war tensions, Meckler added. Leading sector declines was the S&P energy index, which fell 0.9 percent. Occidental Petroleum fell 4.2 percent after it maintained a tepid production forecast for the year. The S&P financial index was down 0.6 percent. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 74.52 points, or 0.29 percent, to 25,509.23, the S&P 500 lost 4.12 points, or 0.14 percent, to 2,853.58 and

the Nasdaq Composite added 3.46 points, or 0.04 percent, to 7,891.78. The biggest drag on the S&P 500 was Booking Holdings, which fell 5 percent after it forecast third-quarter profit below expectations. Rite Aid fell 11.5 percent after the drug store chain and U.S. grocer Albertsons Cos. agreed to terminate their merger agreement. Chip stocks fell after Morgan Stanley downgraded the U.S. semiconductor industry. The S&P 500 posted 26 new 52-week highs and three new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 97 new highs and 68 new lows. About 5.9 billion shares changed hands on U.S. exchanges. That compares to the 6.3 billion daily average for the past 20 trading days, according to Thomson Reuters data.

Schnucks to open new Maplewood store Aug. 22 This Shop ’n Save store in Maplewood, at 7355 Manchester Road, will reopen as a Schnucks.

BY BRIAN FELDT St. Louis Post-dispatch

Schnucks plans to open its new grocery store in Maplewood on Aug. 22. The store, at 7355 Manchester Road, is a former Shop ’n Save that closed in June. Less than a month after that closure, Schnucks announced its plans to open in the 57,575-square-foot building. The grocer will operate regular store hours between 6 a.m. and midnight and employ approximately 100 workers. Schnucks is conducting walk-in interviews for prospective employees at a nearby storefront at 7345 Manchester Road. The Maplewood City Council on Tuesday plans to hold a public hearing to consider Schnucks’ liquor license request.

Matt Eisenbath, a store manager for Schnucks at its Creve Coeur location, and Taylor Clark, who managed the old Shop ’n Save store in Maplewood, will co-manage the new location. Maryland Heights-based Schnucks operates 100 grocery stores in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa. A new Schnucks is under construction in Warrenton that is slated to open in late fall. United Natural Foods is buy-

ing Supervalu Inc., the parent company of Kirkwood-based Shop ’n Save, for $2.9 billion and plans to divest its retail operations. Supervalu had already been shopping the Shop ’n Save business for sale. United Natural Foods said it plans to continue to look for potential buyers of the Shop ’n Save chain.

Billy Goat Chip Co. denied in request to dismiss lawsuit BY BRIAN FELDT St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A U.S. district judge has denied a motion that would have dismissed a trademark infringement lawsuit brought against St. Louis chip maker Billy Goat Chip Co. by the popular Billy Goat Tavern in Chicago. The owners of the Billy Goat Tavern accused Billy Goat Chip Co. of infringing on its trademarks in an initial lawsuit filed in December 2017 and sought to stop the Billy Goat Chip Co. from using the “Billy Goat” phrase or logo. The chip company countersued, arguing the chip maker was actually the first to use the “Billy Goat” mark in connection with packaged retail food and beverage products, and sought to dismiss the tavern’s lawsuit. In the request to dismiss the suit, the Billy Goat Chip Co. owners said the tavern knew about the chips for years before they decided to file their lawsuit. The tavern, in its argument, said not until recently did customers become confused by the branding, which prompted the suit. U.S. District Judge Robert Dow Jr., in a ruling filed Aug. 7, said there were too many unknown and disputed facts that preclude judgment on the pleadings. A status hearing on the case is set for Aug. 22. The St. Louis chip company was formally created in 2009, although the actual chip traces its roots to the early 2000s, when Chef Brian Roth started making them at the Billy Goat Restaurant & Bar in St. Louis. Roth later sold the restaurant to focus exclusively on the chips. Michael Parks and Justin Mulligan of Thompson Coburn are representing Billy Goat IP in the case. The Billy Goat Chip Co. is represented by Vladimir Arezina and Sara Barnowski of Lathrop Gage. The Billy Goat Tavern was founded in the 1930s and was known for a curse its original owner placed on the Chicago Cubs. It was popularized by the “Saturday Night Live” “Cheeburger” skit that was based on the restaurant. It has several locations in the Chicago area.

Lake of the Ozarks’ Party Cove gets its own wine in time for reality show BY BRIAN FELDT St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Filming of a new reality television show that will take place against the backdrop of the infamous Party Cove at the Lake of the Ozarks is underway. One Linn Creek, Mo., winemaker hopes to give customers a taste of the show before it hits the airwaves. Seven Springs Winery, a winery and entertainment venue just south of the giant lake, has received approval from Missouri regulators for a new Party Cove Wine. “I’ve had the idea for the wine for a few years now, but now that they’re filming the series down here, I thought it’d be a good time to launch it and get it going,” said Seven Springs Winery owner Mike Bleile. The wine, at 8 percent alcohol by volume, will be the winery’s red and white sangria, both blends that will include a dash of lemon-lime soda. Bleile said it should be ready for sale by the end of the month. Bleile, who has been operating the winery for just more than a decade, said he hopes the branded wine will be a boost for sales. He said Seven Springs produced 23,000 cases of wine last year and hopes to grow that figure by 10 percent behind strong sales of Party Cove Wine. The “Party Cove” reality show, from the same production company that created “Jersey Shore,” was announced earlier this year. The casting company, Doron Ofir Casting, said it expects to film the series all around the Lake of the Ozarks, including at some businesses, this summer, according to Lake News Online. Bleile said one of those locations will be at Seven Springs. Details of when and which network or streaming service might broadcast the series haven’t been set.

(Left to right against the wall) Members of the Pecoraro family — Stetson, 2, Hudson, 7, and Easton, 9 — assemble for a photo with cast and crew members of Vat 19 on one of the company’s sets for making videos in its Maryland Heights office.

Videos a popular marketing tool VAT 19 • FROM B1

In the case of the homemade oversized Black Abyss Bath Bomb, Vat 19 owner Jamie Salvatori did have his doubts. “Before it came out of the mold, I thought, ‘We’ve spent all this time and money. What have I done?’” What Salvatori and his team did, in fact, was spark 11.4 million views online and 13,000 comments in the first six weeks of the video, which culminates with splash fights and cannonballs into the now-frothy, inky-black swimming pool. Every Vat 19 product — magnetic putty, bubble-wrap unitards, peanut brittle that purports not to hurt your teeth, and all manner of gummy candy — gets the video treatment, though most are done at Vat 19 headquarters, inside the St. Louis area’s largest soundstage. Salvatori, 38, of Ladue, had been working after college in video production, making commercials and training films for local companies. But he was struggling to turn a profit. “I remember distinctly around Christmas 2006 thinking, ‘If I can’t make any money as a for-hire production company, I can make commercials for things I like,’” Salvatori said. “It wasn’t super commonplace to find videos on e-commerce sites. I got lucky being in the right place at the right time.” YouTube was just a couple of years old when Vat 19 started its channel in February 2007. At the time, Salvatori had four employees and was focused on selling tech products and gadgets that would benefit from a how-to film. As customers found the shop online,

Community bank aims for middle NICKLAUS • FROM B1

His business plan is inspired by entrepreneurially focused banks in St. Louis’ past, such as Magna, Mark Twain and Southwest. All were gobbled up by larger competitors. Others, such as Enterprise Bank & Trust, still combine local ownership with a smallbusiness focus, but Liebig believes the community-bank space is underserved here. “Privately held, midsized companies value a partnership with a bank that values them,” he said. “There’s also an opportunity to be a cheerleader for St. Louis, and nobody is filling that role from a banking perspective.” Liebig, 38, a native of Quincy, Ill., considers the late Mike Ross a role model. Ross founded a bank in south

the team added products and shifted their YouTube presence from informational to entertaining. Salvatori credits a giant gummy bear on a stick with Vat 19’s entry into the market of absurd confections, which inspired an all-candy Thanksgiving video featuring a 20-pound gummy turkey, gravy-flavored bubbles and pumpkin pie soda. The company added to its inventory each week, and it now carries more than 800 items in its 12,000-square-foot warehouse. About half of its 25 employees are involved in writing scripts, building sets and shooting videos. Three or four videos are uploaded each week to 5.3 million subscribers. The channel’s 1,300 videos have racked up more than 4.3 billion views.

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS According to Pew Research Center, nine out of 10 retail brands use at least two social media platforms to reach their customers; YouTube outranks even Facebook in popularity among consumers. The video-sharing website has more than double the users of thirdplace finisher, Instagram. According to Pew, 73 percent of U.S. adults watch YouTube, and that number is expected to increase. Many retailers say the site helps them build relationships with their customers and increase brand loyalty. “The accessibility of YouTube as a platform really helps a small company,” said Jason Hinklin-Lauderdale, the ecommerce manager at Especialneeds. com, an online retailer of adaptive, therapeutic and medical equipment based in Maryland Heights. The company has about 450 subscribers, but its instructional videos on replacing bath seats or using fiberoptic sensory lighting draw thousands of views. “We try to make sure we can build a community around trustworthy information,” Hinklin-Lauderdale said.

Among his aspirations is to open a handful of branches around the metro area, including one in the Cortex district. The investor group includes several current and former business owners.

M 1 • FrIDAy • 08.10.2018 in 1990, has been selling its tools and outdoor goods online since 2000; those sales now comprise about 80 percent of its business. A couple of years ago, “we noticed one of our competitors leveraged YouTube pretty heavily, and we made a goal to use that forum,” said owner Justin Payton. When GPKnives gets a new arrival at its shop, it makes a video. “Knives don’t translate well to a photo,” Payton said. “YouTube has become a vital part of our operation, and the comments on the video allow us to be more responsive to customers.” Vat 19 has carried its relationship with customers a step further by inviting its most loyal followers on free tours of its headquarters. On a recent Friday afternoon, about three dozen Vat 19 fans — mostly elementary students and younger teens accompanied by their parents — crowded the small lobby of a nondescript building in a suburban business park. They were eager to see the inner workings of a company that peddles anthropomorphized avocado stuffies, alarm clocks that shake the bed and Toe of Satan Lollipops made from “hellfire” chili extract. Jon Stamm, one of Vat 19’s producers and star of such videos as “Hot Sauce Roulette” and “Make Me Laugh Challenge #3,” led the group. They wound their way through a hallway papered with kids’ drawings of their favorite products and answered trivia questions for a chance to spin a prize wheel. The tours started about four years ago “by customer demand,” said Salvatori, the owner. “People would find out we were local and call up and ask to visit.” Lizzy Fleming, of St. Peters, brought her 11-year-old Makynna’s Girl Scout troop for a field trip. “That’s all she’s been doing is rewatching the videos,” Fleming said of her daughter’s preparation for the tour. Makynna had already earned a Vat 19 sticker for identifying a large blue trash can as a prop from the “World’s Largest Slushie” video. “YouTube is the most popular channel in our house,” said Makynna’s dad, Jaison Fleming. “At first, I decided (the Vat 19 videos) were stupid, and then they kind of grew on me.” Stamm invited the group to sink their fists into another prop: a wheelbarrow full of glow-in-the-dark putty. Then it was on to the soundstage, complete with a kitchen, cubicle and living room set, where he explained how videos are made. The group had time to peruse the 12,000-square-foot warehouse before the highlight of the tour: an opportunity to watch a new Vat 19 video before it officially dropped. If the “World’s Largest Gummy Pizza” — weighing in at 225 pounds — whetted their appetite, they could order a 3-foot slice for themselves. Or choose from four dozen other Vat 19 gummy confections. A few of them are even normal size. Colleen Schrappen • 314-340-8072 @cschrappen on Twitter cschrappen@post-dispatch.com

million, is the metro area’s 32nd-largest bank, according to a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. ranking as of mid2017. Liebig knows he can’t compete against the giants in consumer banking, a business that is all about technology and scale, but he thinks he can win small-business accounts by providing personalized service. The majority of banks in St. Louis, he says, are either too big to provide that personal touch or too small to meet all of a business customer’s needs. He aims to stake out the middle ground, raising the bank’s profile so businesses across the area will know about St. Louis Bank. At the same time, Liebig wants to run the kind of institution his grandmother would view as a pillar of the community. “She saw banking as a noble profession, and we still do,” he says.

ON THE JOB

Q&A with Johanna Foege, scientist and beer brewer She makes sure all the ales come out right at Perennial BY CHRISTIE L.C. ELLIS St. Louis Post-dispatch

Johanna Foege is total quality manager at Perennial Artisan Ales in south St. Louis’ Patch neighborhood. What do you do every day? As total quality manager here, I manage every aspect of quality at the brewery starting from monitoring beer as it’s in the process of fermentation. I check the gravity, make sure the yeast is consuming all the sugar at the appropriate rate, monitoring the pH, tasting the beer through the fermentation process, checking for offflavors and then also doing plating of the beer, making sure we don’t have any unwanted contaminants, all the way through to when we stop the fermentation process. We turn the temperature down and all the yeast drops out, and at that point we’ll move the beer over and (create the carbonation). So then I’m making sure that we’re at the right carb levels and keeping track of what beer batch number is in what package, packaged on what date, and then I’m keeping inventory of that, going back and testing those products. As we’re packaging a

beer, we’ll have employees go taste the beer, fill out a form — takes 5-10 minutes —and give me feedback on if they think it’s great or if there’s something that could be better. So we just have a lot of data on that and we can really look back and reflect on, was there something different about this beer that was awesome or this beer that was slightly less good? And obviously, that would help catch any larger red flags before the beer would be packaged and released. How did you get started in this position? I was working at Washington University in a ... developmental biology program, really working with genetics research. I literally created this job. Every bit of it. It was the opportunity of a lifetime. I came in here expecting to interview and learn how to cellar and brew, and (brewmaster Phil Wymore) is like, “Oh, I was thinking we could use a scientist that might want to work on a quality control program.” This was the same time that my now-fiancé was getting a job in Detroit, and it was like, I guess I’m not moving to Detroit. I can’t. This is not the kind of opportunity you can pass up.

for somebody,” City Manager Jennifer Yackley said. “What it also does is, if residents choose, they can add additional information in there, (such as) if they have an illness or they’re diabetic, or their child has an illness. If they put that information, that dispatcher will also have that information, and they can be providing that to EMS as they are arriving on scene.” SirenGPS also can be used by schools and campuses to share information with first responders more rapidly in major emergencies, Rauner said. “The technology that first responders use to communicate is based on local emergency response, and for typical day-to-day emergencies it works really well,” Rauner said. “Unfortunately, some emergencies are regional. The same tools that work for managing local resources don’t translate easily when the job changes from dispatching an ambulance on a 911 call to coordinating all of

the emergency medical resources across a region in a disaster. Technology has advanced so dramatically in every other aspect of our lives that it may be hard to believe that the first responder communication tools available in a disaster look a lot like they did 40 years ago.” For East Central Dispatch Center operations manager Kurt Ploch, who has worked as an emergency dispatcher for nearly 30 years, locating a caller in need of assistance can be the most stressful part of the job. The dispatch center takes 911 calls for eight different municipalities, including Rock Hill. Most 911 calls come in from cellphones these days, but hills or tall buildings can throw off efforts to triangulate the caller’s location. That further complicates efforts to get help to callers who are often panicked or disoriented. “As a dispatcher … my biggest fear is not knowing where I’m at,” Ploch said. “I’m forever looking at exits and mile markers, because I know the

What drew you to the beer industry? I got interested in craft beer maybe eight years ago, and really just kind of started exploring different beers, and figuring different things out. I started homebrewing about five years ago and really enjoyed it as a scientist. I really enjoyed learning what the yeast was doing behind the scenes. The yeast is making the beer, so I really liked digging into the scientific aspect of it, as well. What can you do about breaches of quality in the brewing process? It can happen all throughout the process. Every single step. If the brewer noticed while they were brewing the beer, they would definitely let me know. Everybody would taste it and see how it compared. Usually, at that point we already have the tank space reserved for it, so we’ll let it ferment and see what it turns into. Maybe schedule a backup batch. We are absolutely not afraid to dump batches of beer. That’s I think what sets a good brewery apart from a normal one. It’s not how much beer you dump, because you shouldn’t be messing up, but it’s not a perfect world, right? Even

frustration of needing to get someone help and not knowing where they are.” The West County EMS and Fire Protection District has used SirenGPS for its capability to send announcements to residents, but just recently began using the app for its GPS abilities during emergency calls. In addition, residents can receive notifications for such things as severe weather, water main breaks and car accidents that interrupt traffic. “It’s another tool to use and it’s kind of a nobrainer,” West County Fire Chief Jeff Sadtler said. “Hopefully people understand it and they start using it as time passes.” As long as people have the app downloaded onto their phone, they don’t necessarily have to live in a specific community to get notifications of emergencies. If a SirenGPS user is within the geofenced limits of the West County service area, for example, they could get a warning about flooding on a roadway. We s t Co u n ty pays $1,500 annually for SirenGPS’ announcement services, but West County

if everything on the brew side went perfect, sometimes yeast just doesn’t do what it needs to do for whatever reason. What’s the Pink Boots Society, of which you helped to form a local chapter? Pink Boots Society is an international society for women in the brewing industry. Really any woman whose profession touches the beer industry can be a part of it. We could have bloggers, beer writers, tasting room staff, brewers, quality control, really any woman that has a percentage, maybe 50 percentage of her income can be part of it. So it’s not just like a homebrewers’ society or anything. It is for women professionals in the beer industry, and the goal of the society overall is to empower women and get them networking skills, get them more knowledge. So one of the biggest requirements about when you’re hosting a Pink Boots meeting, which I think we have six a year, a large aspect of that meeting has to be an educational portion. Our first meeting was in April. I started it with Troy Bedik of Civil Life, she’s a brewer at Civil Life. She’s the one who convinced me to join Pink Boots Society. She had been a member

LAURIE SKRIVAN • lskrivan@post-dispatch.com

for a few years, and she had gotten a scholarship — they do scholarships every month for women, for professional development. So she had convinced me to join last year, and just a whole year later, we’re like, “Why don’t we finally have a chapter?” We have around 30 members now. How has being a woman affected your personal experience in science and in the beer industry? I grew up in a family with two brothers and my dad. My mom died when I was 9, so I think I’ve pretty much always been more comfortable around men anyway. So it was a fairly natural transition for me. And really just this past

year, I’ve started telling myself that I need to really embrace the fact that I’m a woman both in science and in the beer industry, and just really let that come out. I don’t feel like I just have to pretend to be one of the guys. Just like really embrace the fact that I’m a woman, and I think it’s been a lot more accepting than I think I was expecting it to be. I’d always just been kind of afraid. What character trait has made you most successful? I think we’ll call it perseverance. It’s beer, but it’s science. There’s a lot of failures, but you’ve just got to learn from them and figure out how to get around them.

and Rock Hill pay nothing for the enhancements to individual 911 calls, including all of the information that appears on a dispatcher’s computer screen. While SirenGPS is a big step forward for local 911 operations, local dispatchers are also waiting for Next Generation 911 to be installed at all 21 dispatch centers throughout St. Louis County. That initiative aims to move calls from “legacy analog circuit topography to an IP-based circuit topography which provides for more and faster emergency data exchange … (and) a focus on interaction with wireless devices,” according to Mike Clouse, director of the Emergency Communications Division with the county. The system is being installed but the county doesn’t have a timeline for completion. Both West County and Rock Hill said they’d consider continuing to use SirenGPS even after Next Generation 911 is installed, because of its other features. “Location is everything,” Ploch said. “Having the location right away is almost miraculous, and having a bit about their medical background — if someone is allergic to latex or something we might give them, we don’t want to make them sicker … this can bring a call that is typically five minutes down to seconds. In this business, seconds save lives.”

vice” software to cheat during emissions testing. Individual states had discretion about how to use their cut of the money, though it broadly needed to address “mobile sources” of air pollutants tied to respiratory health problems, such as nitrogen oxide. “Through the public process, we asked ... ‘What makes sense for us? Where do we want to prioritize?’” said Darcy Bybee, the director of the DNR’s Air Pollution Control Program, adding that more than 400 comments were received on the agency’s draft plans. The DNR states that its top goal, overall, was to efficiently cut down on nitrogen oxide emissions, and that “most award categories will have competitive scoring of applications based on how cost effectively the project reduces (nitrogen oxide) emissions.” The agency’s spending guidelines state that “the amounts planned for each category may change based on the number and types of projects applicants submit.” “Maximum funding that could be available to the award category for school buses is $18 million, the maximum for government trucks is $12 million, and the maximum for transit and shuttle buses is $10 million,” the DNR’s summary added. Although there was less popular support for projects targeting locomotive, marine, airport and cargo vehicle categories, data used by the DNR show they can have some of the largest nitrogen oxide emissions footprints, meaning that the “smaller funding allocations for these award categories could still result in comparatively large emission reductions.” Although the selected vehicle replacement programs will generally be based on matching and cost sharing, Bybee said that the program’s first year would include a round of funding opportunities for economically disadvantaged school districts, where 100 percent of costs for new school buses would be covered. School bus replacement applications, she said, are decided through a lottery system, as long as certain minimum requirements — such as the age of vehicles in question — are met. While other vehicle categories have funding limitations for different regions of the state, applications for school bus replacement are not restricted geographically. “We’re trying to get at a lot of different goals,” Bybee said. “There’s a really wide swath of folks that we’re hoping will take advantage of participating in the program.”

ADVANCING ST. LOUIS | KITTY RATCLIFFE OF EXPLORE ST. LOUIS PRODUCED BY THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT

President of Explore St. Louis seeks to restore civic pride By Jennifer Mason Marketing Content Contributor

T

he St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission (DBA Explore St. Louis) is the official marketing organization responsible for selling St. Louis City and St. Louis County as a convention and meeting site as well as a leisure travel destination. “Explore St. Louis is a political subdivision of the state,” said Kitty Ratcliffe, president of Explore St. Louis. “Our organization works to attract citywide conventions, hotel meetings, sporting events, group tours and individual leisure travelers to St. Louis. We have more than 700 local and regional business partners with Explore St. Louis.” St. Louis is a great destination for conventions, and the new revenue that is infused into the community when the city hosts a convention supports many functions, including employment and small businesses. “When we have large numbers of visitors coming to town, that infusion has a compression effect on the entire region,” Ratcliffe said. “It is not just a downtown-focused event; it is an event that puts cash into the entire regional economy.”

A few years later, I was hired as a convention sales manager at the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission. I loved living in St. Louis early in my career. I was so glad to get the call to come back years later as President of Explore St. Louis. WHAT IS THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF EXPLORE ST. LOUIS? We officially handle all of the destination sales and marketing for St. Louis City and County, more specifically, economic development through tourism. While our primary focus is the city and county, we know that visitors don’t know or care about city/county lines or even state lines. Therefore, we sell the region as a whole in order to be able to attract and provide the best experiences to the maximum number of visitors. That is our primary focus, but our reach has various subsets; one of which is the operation of the America’s Center Convention Complex, consisting of the Cervantes Convention Center and The Dome at America’s Center. While we don’t own those buildings, we run them as economic development tools to recruit large event business to St. Louis.

we had the opportunity to speak with more than 50 journalists about our food scene. Additionally, the redevelopment of the arch grounds has given us a way to talk about a reimagined and revitalized St. Louis as a place to visit. We were always the Gateway to the West and now we can be known as a ‘gateway to innovation’ with many new and exciting attractions available to explore. Whether people come here for a weekend visit, to take a job, or for college, we have a good story to tell. We’ve had some great opportunities to do that within the last year.

DO YOU HAVE AN UPDATE ON THE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CONVENTION FACILITIES? We’ve been actively engaged with both the city and the county on a plan to issue new bonds from existing hotel taxes put in place in the early 1990s. I am hopeful that both the city and the county are going to move forward in the near future. We are currently working on phase one of the plan from city and county hotel tax revenues. If that moves forward, then we can prepare to talk to officials in Jefferson City about phase two, which is making the Dome a better convention facility. The original Convention Center, which is the heart of the building and the primary infrastructure, is 41 years old. We need to make significant changes to the convention center and The Dome, including the connectivity between the two. They are two buildings that sit side by side with very narrow connection points, which, if improved, could increase the volume of large convention events.

“We were always the Gateway to the West and now we can be known as a ‘gateway to innovation’ with many new and exciting attractions available to explore.”

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IMPROVED IN OUR CITY? We are much too modest of a community. Our persona is humble — we know it’s a great place to live, but we don’t boast about it. We need to change that. I have family in Texas who are openly proud

about where they live. We need that same energy and pride here. We have a tendency to dwell on the negative instead of focusing on the positives of living in St. Louis. As a result, we founded an organization called the St. Louis Civic Pride Foundation several years ago. The organization is responsible for planning a number of projects designed to bolster civic pride in the area. One of our goals for the upcoming year is to boost the activities of the Civic Pride Foundation. To do this, we created a St. Louis Champions group comprised of individuals who are vested in being ambassadors for St. Louis. Anyone can sign up and there is no charge.

Gary Woodland, a three-time PGA Tour winner and former University of Kansas standout, stepped into what he called “enemy territory” on Thursday at Bellerive Country Club and left with the lead at the 100th PGA Championship. With close to 100 family and friends on hand from his hometown of Topeka, Kan., Woodland caught some razzing from Mizzou fans during his afternoon round in the sweltering heat but savored the last laugh while shooting 6-under 64. Woodland, who’s never finished in the top 10 at a major, holds a onestroke lead over Rickie Fowler and leads Brandon Stone and Zach Johnson by two strokes. “There’s a lot of bad blood there between Kansas and Missouri,” Woodland said. “I heard a lot of stuff that actually made me laugh and chuckle, but it’s all in fun.

Tiger Woods studies a shot at the 15th hole as he rallied to reach even par after a bad start.

A scent of hamburger dominated the smoke wafting from a nearby food tent toward Bellerive’s No. 10 tee as golf’s biggest enigma was introduced at the 100th PGA Championship. Eleven shots later, Tiger Woods looked cooked. His first drive found the long, deep rough that is going to be critical to avoid this weekend. His second shot resembled a wounded bird, fluttering a few feet off the ground and landing just 65 yards away, with 162 more to go. Woods eventually made it to the “chewed up” greens that frustrated him all day, and then he left a putt short. Bogey. Things were about to get worse.

DeJong’s bat on the path to success BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Cardinals shortstop Paul DeJong, the runner-up in the National League Rookie of the Year balloting last year, batted just .206 from the day he suffered a fracture in his left hand on May 17 when he was hit by a pitch until the Cardinals’ most recent series in Miami.

Illinois’ defensive lineman Bobby Roundtree (97) sacks Western Kentucky’s Mike White early last season. BY JOEY WAGNER Decatur (Ill.) Herald & review

CHAMPAIGN, ILL. • The days of Bobby Roundtree being a baby on the Illinois defensive line are over. He’s not the same kid who had never played a football game in the snow until last year, or the kid who caught grief from teammates for playing in the snow on campus. He has grown up. Roundtree’s production and physically imposing stature make it easy to forget that the 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end is just a sophomore. He burst onto the scene in the first two games last year, tallying three of his four sacks against Ball State and Western Kentucky, but his next sack didn’t come until Week 12 against Northwestern. The first game set the bar for Roundtree. He got a taste of what a sack in Division I felt like. “That was my first college game straight out of high school and seeing what I can do with all these grown men,” Roundtree said. “It felt great. After that, I wanted to do more every game, bring something to the team that’s going to give us a better chance of winning.” He finished the year on the BTN.com All-Freshman team with 50 tackles, four for a loss, four sacks and three pass breakups. But there was still something in Roundtree that didn’t feel complete. “Seeing what I could do and thinking about what I could have done better or what could have helped me be a better person, I felt good about it, but I also have this weird feeling because I feel like I could have done way better,” Roundtree said. Roundtree’s goal is simple:

Double all of his stats from last year and win more games. In order for him to accomplish that, the Illini need to stop the run. Not a day goes by without new defensive line coach Austin Clark reminding his group the Illini ranked last in the Big Ten in run defense last year, allowing 218.5 rushing yards per game. Roundtree and the rest of the defensive line don’t need to be reminded, they know exactly where the Illini ranked last year and have made it a priority this season. “That’s embarrassing to me, coming in last and everything,” Roundtree said. “We’re all trying to put in the work and trying to turn this whole program around.” Stopping the run isn’t only the next step in Roundtree’s development, it’s a key for the entire defense. Defensive coordinator Hardy Nickerson knows his unit needs to force opposing offenses into those uncomfortable third-and-long situations. “It’s important for us to play well on first and second down,” Nickerson said. “(Roundtree) has been really dialed in on that and worked really hard along with the rest of the guys and we’re getting better there.” When D-line coach Clark came to Champaign after a twoyear stint with the University of Southern California and one year as a recruiting assistant at the University of California, he fired up film of the defensive front. In Roundtree, he saw flashes of domination, using his length and strength to bully offensive linemen. Now Roundtree has to channel those flashes into consistency in defending against the run and pass games. “Be a dominant player every single play,” Clark said. “Don’t

just be a third down, finesse guy. That can’t be our M.O. here. We’ve got to be guys who want to put our hands on people every single day, strike blockers, get off and make plays.” The history between Clark and Roundtree dates back to when Roundtree was in high school at Largo High School in Largo, Fla. Clark, who was a recruiting coordinator at Cal, was on the recruiting trail for Roundtree and saw glimpses of his potential. “You saw those same flashes you saw on his high school tape, just being able to use his leverage — he’s so long,” Clark said. “We want to use that in the run game and the pass game.” Those flashes are becoming more consistent as Roundtree’s ceiling gets higher. “He’s doing a heck of a job, starting to use his hands,” Clark said. “We’ve really challenged him with that. For us, he’s going to be a heck of a player.” The line boasts depth, giving the Illini the ability to cycle in players at will with trust. “We’re going to attack every play 150 percent,” Roundtree said. “We’re trying to help the back guys — the linebackers, corners and safeties. We’re out here hunting and trying to make it easier for those guys and get three-andouts.” NOTES • Freshman QB Matthew Robinson completed several big passes Thursday, including a long touchdown to Carmoni Green. ... Freshman defensive back Dylan Wyatt was helped off the field with an apparent knee injury. ... Quarterback AJ Bush and receiver Trenard Davis hooked up on a deep pass. ... Delano Ware, Jartavius Martin, Ron Hardge III and Dele Harding each came up with interceptions on Thursday.

COLLEGE NOTEBOOK Snyder, 78, gets five-year deal from Kansas State So much for Kansas State coach Bill Snyder retiring anytime soon. Just days after saying he felt energized heading into this season, the school announced Thursday it had signed Snyder to a new fiveyear contract that includes a pay bump to $3.45 million this season and could keep the 78-year-old coach with the Wildcats through the 2022 season. Snyder already had a contract that essentially rolled over each year. But the new deal increases his salary immediately while adding an additional $300,000 each of the next two seasons. It includes a clause that allows for a salary renegotiation after the 2020 season. “We felt that it was important to recognize his commitment to our football program, and we look forward to his continued leadership,” Kansas State athletic director Gene Taylor said. Snyder resurrected the Wildcat program when he arrived in 1988, taking a program that had been dubbed “Futility U” to national prominence. He stepped away in 2005, citing a desire to spend more time with his family, only to return in 2009 when the program had again fallen on hard times. Early last year, Snyder revealed that he had been diagnosed with throat cancer and was undergoing treatment. Still, he rarely missed a day in the office and was deemed to be cancer-free when the Wildcats reported for fall camp.

There were times Snyder seemed to be sapped of energy last season, but he wound up leading a young team to an 8-5 season that included a Cactus Bowl win. Now, he returns a team that includes both quarterbacks that started games, the entire offensive line and an abundance of talent on both sides of the ball. Snyder believes the Wildcats have a chance to compete for the Big 12 title. Wake Forest basketball assistant punched tourist who died • A rising star in college basketball’s coaching ranks threw a punch that led to the death of a New York City tourist who mistook him for an Uber driver, police said on Thursday. Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones attacked digital marketing guru Sandor Szabo around 1:15 a.m. Sunday in Queens, causing him to fall and hit his head on the sidewalk, police said. Szabo, visiting from Boca Raton, Fla., knocked on the window of Jones’ SUV while looking for his ride after his stepsister’s wedding, police said. The coach got out, clocked Szabo and sped off, police said. A person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press that Szabo may have been drunkenly banging on car windows before Jones confronted him. Szabo never regained consciousness and was taken off life support on Tuesday. Jones, 35, of Kernersville, N.C., turned himself in to police on Thursday. He is awaiting arraignment on a misdemeanor assault charge.

In a statement, Wake Forest said it would comment further once it gathers more information. CFP rankings to begin Oct. 30 • The first College Football Playoff rankings of the season will be released Oct. 30 and the four-team field will be set Dec. 2, the Sunday after conference championship games are played. The selection committee’s top 25 will be revealed on ESPN each Tuesday night for five weeks, starting the day before Halloween. The College Football Playoff also announced Thursday the committee’s recusals for this season. Members must recuse from discussions about schools that compensate them or schools where immediate family members work or play. The five athletic directors on the committee must recuse from discussions about their school. LSU suspends LB after learning of arrest • LSU sophomore linebacker Tylor Taylor has been suspended, apparently after the school learned he’d been arrested about two months ago in connection with a firearms theft from a pawn shop in Georgia. An official LSU statement says only that the suspension stems from a violation of team rules. However, police records in Cumming, Ga., indicate authorities suspect Taylor drove four suspected burglars to and from the pawn shop where the theft occurred on Jan. 8. Associated Press

NFL NOTEBOOK

Good starts for Mayfield, Barkley ASSOCIATED PRESS

Baker Mayfield and Saquon Barkley lived up to early expectations as the top two picks in the NFL draft in their first action of exhibition play as the Cleveland Browns beat the New York Giants 20-10 on Thursday night in East Rutherford, N.J. Replacing starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor late in the first quarter, Mayfield hit 11 of 20 passes for 212 yards, two touchdowns, and converted two fourth-down plays with his feet. Taylor, expected to be coach Hue Jackson’s starter as Mayfield learns this season, hit all five of his passes in two series, including a 36-yard touchdown pass to Njoku, a New Jersey native. Barkley, the former Penn State running back and No. 2 pick, electrified the fans at MetLife Stadium, taking a handoff from Eli Manning on the opening play from scrimmage and turning no apparent hole into a 39-yard run down the sideline in front of the Giants’ bench. It set up a 42yard field goal by Aldrick Rosas. Barkley finished with 43 yards on five carries. Ravens blast Rams • Joe Flacco threw a touchdown pass on his only series of the game, rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson ran for a score and the host Baltimore Ravens rolled to a 33-7 preseason victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Baltimore (2-0) led 17-0 after the first period and cruised to the finish against the Rams (0-1), who rested offensive stars Jared Goff and Todd Gurley. After sitting out the Hall of Fame Game last week, Flacco went 5 for 7 for 71 yards during a 10-play drive. The 11-year veteran overcame a second-and-25 with a 30-yard pass to newcomer Michael Crabtree and finished with a 6-yard TD throw to Patrick Ricard. Jackson entered the next time Baltimore got the ball and coolly directed a 73-yard march in which he completed a 36-yard pass to Chris Moore and broke two tackles running for a 9-yard touchdown. Jackson went 7 for 18 for 119 yards, ran for 21 yards and was sacked twice before giving way to Robert Griffin III early in the third quarter. Flacco has been named Baltimore’s starter in the regular season. Griffin is seeking a comeback after being inactive in 2017, and Jackson is trying to adjust to the pro game after winning a Heisman Trophy at Louisville and being drafted in the first round last April. The Ravens and Rams held joint practices Monday and Tuesday, and Los Angeles coach Sean McVay indicated the work

against outside opposition would enable him to rest a few of his starters in the preseason opener. Brady sits after raise, Patriots win • Colt McCoy outplayed Brian Hoyer in a scrimmage of backup quarterbacks, while Tom Brady and Alex Smith stayed on the sidelines counting their money. On the day that the Patriots reportedly sweetened Brady’s contract with $5 million in incentives, the reigning NFL MVP sat out the team’s exhibition season opener. So did his Washington counterpart, Smith, who was traded to the nation’s capital in the offseason and received a four-year, $94 million extension. In their place, McCoy completed 13 of

Many patients report a noticeable improvement of their ability to achieve an erection within a few weeks.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Without Medication During treatment, high frequency acoustical waves are applied to different areas of the penis. This stimulates the creation of new blood vessels in the cavernous bodies and improves blood flow in the penis (and the ability to achieve an erection).

18 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns as Washington opened 17-0 lead in the first half. Hoyer struggled against the Washington starters, but drove host New England to a pair of second-half touchdowns, including Ralph Webb’s 8-yard run for a score followed by the catch on a 2-point conversion that gave New England its first lead en route to a 26-17 victory in the exhibition season opener on Thursday night. Bortles sharp in opener • Blake Bortles completed 6 of 9 passes for 53 yards and scored on a short bootleg in host Jacksonville’s 24-20 loss to New Orleans in the exhibition opener for both teams Thursday night. Bortles was poised in the pocket and nearly perfect in one series of work, a significant improvement from the way his preseason started a year ago. Bortles had a five-interception performance during a training camp practice in 2017 and continued to struggle during joint practices with New England. He was benched two weeks into the preseason and had to earn the starting job. Saints star Drew Brees got the night off, allowing backup Tom Savage to play the first half. Savage completed 10 of 14 passes for 70 yards. Brees only played in one preseason game in 2017. Three Dolphins players protest during anthem • Kenny Stills and two other Miami Dolphins protested during the national anthem before Thursday’s exhibition game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Receivers Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled behind teammates lined up standing along the sideline. Defensive end Robert Quinn stood and raised his right fist, as he did during the anthem last season with the Los Angeles Rams. There were no apparent demonstrations by the Buccaneers. Stills kneeled during the anthem in the 2016-17 seasons and has been vocal discussing social injustice issues that inspired the protest movement by NFL players. The league and the players’ union have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when “The Star-Spangled Banner” is played, or remain in the locker room. The Dolphins issued a statement before training camp saying all options regarding the team’s policy remain open. In Thursday’s game, Ryan Tannehill completed passes on the first four plays in his return from two serious injuries to his left knee, sparking a 40-yard drive that ended with a missed field goal in his only

series, and Miami lost to Tampa Bay 2624. Three Seahawks go to tunnel for anthem • Three Seattle players ran into the tunnel leading to the team’s locker room prior to the national anthem on Thursday night. Defensive linemen Branden Jackson and Quinton Jefferson, and offensive lineman Duane Brown left the field following team introductions and before the start of the anthem. They returned to the sideline immediately after it concluded. All three were among a group of Seattle players that sat during the anthem last season. There were no other actions by either Seattle or Indianapolis players during the performance of anthem. Gruden set for return • “Chucky” will be back on the sideline at the Coliseum. Jon Gruden makes his return for the Oakland Raiders when they host the Detroit Lions in their exhibition opener on Friday night. Gruden last coached a home contest in Oakland on Jan. 12, 2001, when the Raiders beat the Jets 38-24 in a playoff game. Oakland lost the “Tuck Rule” game in New England the following week and Gruden was traded to Tampa Bay after the season, where he won the 2002 NFL title. Now he’s back for a second stint in Oakland after spending the past nine seasons as a TV analyst for ESPN. “I’m looking forward to it bigtime,” he said. “I’ve got some things obviously I’ve got to work out. So I’ve got to work myself through calling plays again and managing some tough situations. I’m anxious to see if I can do it.” The game also marks the debut for new Lions coach Matt Patricia, hired this offseason after a highly successful stint as defensive coordinator for New England. Vikings lose guard Easton • The Minnesota Vikings lost a key member of their offensive line when left guard Nick Easton was placed on injured reserve because of a bulging disc in his neck. Minnesota signed Easton to a one-year, $2.9 million contract in free agency. He’ll be an unrestricted free agent after the season. The Vikings are also missing center Pat Elflein (ankle/shoulder) and right guard Mike Remmers (ankle). Raiders sign safety Mauger • Oakland signed free-agent safety Quincy Mauger. The Raiders waived long snapper Drew Scott on Thursday to make room on the roster. Mauger spent last season on injured reserve with a knee injury in Atlanta after signing with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent.

Unlike conventional ED treatment, such as PDE5 inhibitors, EDWT does not involve the use of any pharmaceuticals. Morover, the Wave Treatment causes no side-effects or systemic load on other organs and healthy tissues.

This breakthrough, therapeutic treatment brings long lasting improvement for erectile function and sexual health to millions of men –without pain or medication.

Mahomes, Chiefs fall • Patrick Mahomes finished 5 of 7 for 33 yards on two drives in the host Kansas City Chiefs’ 17-10 loss to the Houston Texans in the preseason opener for both teams. Houston’s Deshaun Watson, who’s coming back from a torn ACL, was used sparingly. He threw only one pass — a 4-yard completion to wide receiver Bruce Ellington — during a five-play drive to midfield that featured four handoffs to running back Lamar Miller.

Renfroe homers again, slam beats Brewers

This Date In Baseball

Hunter Renfroe hit a go-ahead grand slam in the ninth inning, his fourth straight game with a home run, and the San Diego Padres rallied for an 8-4 victory at Milwaukee on Thursday. The Padres trailed 4-2 entering the ninth, but rallied against Brewers relievers Corey Knebel and Joakim Soria. Knebel walked the bases loaded and allowed a run-scoring infield single to Travis Jankowski before Soria entered to try to escape the jam. Soria retired Eric Hosmer before Renfroe hammered a 1-2 pitch deep into the left-field bleachers for his grand slam. Renfroe became the first Padres player to hit home runs and have multiple RBI games in four consecutive games. Franmil Reyes added a solo homer to right off Jacob Barnes to cap the Padres’ stunning six-run rally. The Padres, who went 5-20 in July, won four of seven games against the Chicago Cubs and Brewers on their Midwest road trip.

Compiled by PAUL MONTELLA Aug. 10 1901: Frank Isbell of the Chicago White Sox set an AL record by stranding 11 teammates on the basepaths. 1944: Charles “Red” Barrett of the Boston Braves threw only 58 pitches to beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 in a nine-inning game. 1957: Mickey Mantle became the first player to clear the center-field hedge at Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium when his 460-foot homer hit the base of the scoreboard. The Yankees beat the Orioles, 6-3. 1971: Harmon Killebrew of the Minnesota Twins hit his 500th home run in the first inning off Baltimore’s Mike Cuellar to become the 10th player to hit 500 or more in a career. Killebrew also hit No. 501 off Cuellar but the Orioles won 4-3. 1981: Major league baseball resumed play after a two-month strike. In the St. Louis Cards-Phillies game at Philadelphia, attended by 60,561 fans, Pete Rose broke Stan Musial’s NL hit record when he singled for his 3,631st hit. It came off Mark Littell in the eighth inning. 1995: Ball Night at Dodger Stadium turned into the first forfeit in the majors in 16 years. Los Angeles forfeited a game to the St. Louis Cardinals after fans threw souvenir baseballs onto the field three times. The game was called with one out in the bottom of the ninth. 2003: Atlanta Braves shortstop Rafael Furcal turned the 12th unassisted triple play in major league history against the St. Louis Cardinals. With runners on first and second in the fifth inning, Furcal made a leaping grab of pitcher Woody Williams’ liner. The runners were going, and Furcal stepped on second base to double up Mike Matheny before tagging out Orlando Palmeiro. 2004: Barry Bonds became the first player in major league history to hit 30 home runs in 13 consecutive seasons, hitting a solo shot off John Grabow in the seventh inning of San Francisco’s 8-7 loss to Pittsburgh. Bonds has hit 30 homers in 14 seasons, one shy of Hank Aaron’s record. 2006: Boston’s Curt Schilling tied the AL record by allowing 10 extra-base hits in a 5-4 loss to Kansas City. Schilling gave up nine doubles and a home run, matching the mark set by Washington’s Dale Gear in 1901 and equaled by Cleveland’s Luis Tiant in 1969. 2009: Troy Tulowitzki had five hits, hit for the cycle and had a career-high seven RBIs to help Colorado beat the Chicago Cubs 11-5. Tulowitzki was the sixth player in the majors to hit for the cycle this season. 2011: Joey Votto hit the last of Cincinnati’s three solo homers, spoiling Kevin Millwood’s return to the majors with a 3-2 win over Colorado. Votto’s leadoff homer in the sixth snapped a 2-all tie. Edgar Renteria and Jay Bruce also homered off the 36-year-old Millwood. Today’s birthday: Archie Bradley 26; Wilson Ramos 31; Matt den Dekker 31.

Nats 6, Braves 3 • Gio Gonzalez pitched seven strong innings and earned his first victory since May 28 to help host Washington defeat Atlanta to secure a four-game split.

AMERICAN LEAGUE Blue Jays 8, Red Sox 5 • Mookie Betts homered in the ninth inning to complete his first career cycle during host Toronto’s win over Boston. Betts is the 21st Red Sox player to hit for the cycle and the first in the major leagues this season. He singled and scored in the first inning, tripled in the second and doubled in the fourth against starter Ryan Borucki. After walking in the sixth, Betts hit a one-out drive off Ken Giles in the ninth for his 27th homer of the season. Yankees 7, Rangers 3 • Giancarlo Stanton hit the hardest homer ever measured by the Statcast system, Neil Walker hit two more home runs and host New York beat Texas. Stanton’s 28th homer was measured at 121.7 mph, the fastest long ball since Statcast began in 2015. Indians 5, Twins 4 • Michael Brantley’s ninth-inning single gave host Cleveland a win over Minnesota, its second straight walk-off victory against the Twins. Rays 5, Orioles 4 • Jake Bauers drove in two of his three runs with a go-ahead two-run single in the seventh inning and host Tampa Bay beat Baltimore. Associated Press

NOTEBOOK Nationals’ Harper scratched with sore knee The Washington Nationals scratched outfielder Bryce Harper from Thursday’s lineup with right knee soreness. Atlanta reliever Dan Winkler hit Harper just below the right knee in the seventh inning of the Braves’ 8-3 victory on Wednesday. Washington manager Dave Martinez said X-rays on Harper were negative. “We thought he was going to be OK,” Martinez said. “He was out there trying to get loose this morning, and just couldn’t get loose. It was pretty swollen. So rather than him trying to play through it, we thought the best option would be having him come off the bench if we need him. “He’s going to stay in and get treatment.” Harper, the 2015 National League MVP and a six-time AllStar, is hitting .234 with 28 home runs and 71 RBIs. He leads the NL in walks (88) and ranks third in the league in homers. A’s trade for Rodney • Oakland acquired closer Fernando Rodney from the Minnesota Twins. The A’s sent minor league righthander Dakota Chalmers to Minnesota on Thursday to complete the deal that adds more depth to Oakland’s stellar bullpen. The 41-year-old Rodney is 3-2 with 25 saves and a 3.09 ERA in 46 relief appearances for Minnesota this season. The righthanded Rodney has 325 career saves, 17th most in baseball history. Braves’ Sanchez exits with injury • Atlanta starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez left his start Thursday against the Washington after getting hit by the ball in the left calf. The righthander was hit by Washington outfielder Michael Taylor’s grounder with two outs in the second inning. Sanchez made the throw to first for the out but didn’t return in the bottom of the third inning. Pomeranz goes to Red Sox bullpen • The Boston Red Sox moved struggling left-hander Drew Pomeranz to the bullpen. Pomeranz, 1-5 with a 6.31 ERA, is winless in eight starts since a May 2 victory over Kansas City. Pomeranz had completed more than five innings just twice in 11 starts. Indians’ Martin goes on DL • Cleveland outfielder Leonys Martin was placed on the 10-day DL with an illness. Manager Terry Francona said before Wednesday’s game that Martin was dealing with an intestinal issue. Associated Press

Renfroe homers again, slam beats Brewers

Padres 8, Brewers 4

Blue Jays 8, Red Sox 5

Yankees 7, Rangers 3

Hunter Renfroe hit a go-ahead grand slam in the ninth inning, his fourth straight game with a home run, and the San Diego Padres rallied for an 8-4 victory at Milwaukee on Thursday. The Padres trailed 4-2 entering the ninth, but rallied against Brewers relievers Corey Knebel and Joakim Soria. Renfroe became the first Padres player to hit home runs and have multiple RBI games in four consecutive games. Franmil Reyes added a solo homer to right off Jacob Barnes to cap the Padres’ stunning six-run rally.

AMERICAN LEAGUE Blue Jays 8, Red Sox 5 • Mookie Betts homered in the ninth inning to complete his first career cycle during host Toronto’s win over Boston. Betts is the 21st Red Sox player to hit for the cycle and the first in the major leagues this season. He singled in the first inning, tripled in the second and doubled in the fourth. After walking in the sixth, Betts hit a one-out drive in the ninth for his 27th homer of the season. Yankees 7, Rangers 3 • Giancarlo Stanton hit the hardest homer ever measured by the Statcast system, Neil Walker hit two more home runs and host New York beat Texas.

NOTEBOOK Nationals’ Harper scratched with sore knee The Washington Nationals scratched outfielder Bryce Harper from Thursday’s lineup with right knee soreness. Atlanta reliever Dan Winkler hit Harper just below the right knee in the seventh inning of the Braves’ 8-3 victory on Wednesday. Washington manager Dave Martinez said X-rays on Harper were negative. “We thought he was going to be OK,” Martinez said. “He was out there trying to get loose this morning, and just couldn’t get loose. It was pretty swollen. So rather than him trying to play through it, we thought the best option would be having him come off the bench if we need him. “He’s going to stay in and get treatment.” Harper, the 2015 National League MVP and a six-time AllStar, is hitting .234 with 28 home runs and 71 RBIs. He leads the NL in walks (88) and ranks third in the league in homers. Dodgers’ Jansen has irregular heartbeat • Los Angeles closer Kenley Jansen went to the hospital with an irregular heartbeat before Thursday’s game at Colorado and was going back to Los Angeles for more tests. Jansen has dealt with an irregular heartbeat in the past. Manager Dave Roberts said the righthander will visit his cardiologist in Los Angeles. A’s trade for Rodney • Oakland acquired closer Fernando Rodney from the Minnesota Twins. The A’s sent minor league righthander Dakota Chalmers to Minnesota on Thursday to complete the deal that adds more depth to Oakland’s stellar bullpen. The 41-year-old Rodney is 3-2 with 25 saves and a 3.09 ERA in 46 relief appearances for Minnesota this season. The righthanded Rodney has 325 career saves, 17th most in baseball history. Braves’ Sanchez exits with injury • Atlanta starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez left his start Thursday against the Washington after getting hit by the ball in the left calf. The righthander was hit by Washington outfielder Michael Taylor’s grounder with two outs in the second inning. Sanchez made the throw to first for the out but didn’t return in the bottom of the third inning. Indians’ Martin goes on DL • Cleveland outfielder Leonys Martin was placed on the 10-day DL with an intestinal issue. Associated Press

This Date In Baseball Compiled by PAUL MONTELLA Aug. 10 1901: Frank Isbell of the Chicago White Sox set an AL record by stranding 11 teammates on the basepaths. 1944: Charles “Red” Barrett of the Boston Braves threw only 58 pitches to beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 in a nine-inning game. 1957: Mickey Mantle became the first player to clear the center-field hedge at Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium when his 460-foot homer hit the base of the scoreboard. The Yankees beat the Orioles, 6-3. 1971: Harmon Killebrew of the Minnesota Twins hit his 500th home run in the first inning off Baltimore’s Mike Cuellar to become the 10th player to hit 500 or more in a career. Killebrew also hit No. 501 off Cuellar but the Orioles won 4-3. 1981: Major league baseball resumed play after a two-month strike. In the St. Louis Cards-Phillies game at Philadelphia, attended by 60,561 fans, Pete Rose broke Stan Musial’s NL hit record when he singled for his 3,631st hit. It came off Mark Littell in the eighth inning. 1995: Ball Night at Dodger Stadium turned into the first forfeit in the majors in 16 years. Los Angeles forfeited a game to the St. Louis Cardinals after fans threw souvenir baseballs onto the field three times. The game was called with one out in the bottom of the ninth. 2003: Atlanta Braves shortstop Rafael Furcal turned the 12th unassisted triple play in major league history against the St. Louis Cardinals. With runners on first and second in the fifth inning, Furcal made a leaping grab of pitcher Woody Williams’ liner. The runners were going, and Furcal stepped on second base to double up Mike Matheny before tagging out Orlando Palmeiro. 2004: Barry Bonds became the first player in major league history to hit 30 home runs in 13 consecutive seasons, hitting a solo shot off John Grabow in the seventh inning of San Francisco’s 8-7 loss to Pittsburgh. Bonds has hit 30 homers in 14 seasons, one shy of Hank Aaron’s record. 2006: Boston’s Curt Schilling tied the AL record by allowing 10 extra-base hits in a 5-4 loss to Kansas City. Schilling gave up nine doubles and a home run, matching the mark set by Washington’s Dale Gear in 1901 and equaled by Cleveland’s Luis Tiant in 1969. 2009: Troy Tulowitzki had five hits, hit for the cycle and had a career-high seven RBIs to help Colorado beat the Chicago Cubs 11-5. Tulowitzki was the sixth player in the majors to hit for the cycle this season. 2011: Joey Votto hit the last of Cincinnati’s three solo homers, spoiling Kevin Millwood’s return to the majors with a 3-2 win over Colorado. Votto’s leadoff homer in the sixth snapped a 2-all tie. Edgar Renteria and Jay Bruce also homered off the 36-year-old Millwood. Today’s birthday: Archie Bradley 26; Wilson Ramos 31; Matt den Dekker 31.

NOTEBOOK

Bullpen is home for Hudson, for now SERIES PREVIEW: CARDINALS AT ROYALS Scouting report • The Royals helped the Cardinals Wednesday by knocking off the Cubs, but they have won just three of their past 10 games. They have a 35-79 record, which is the second-worst record in the American League. The Cardinals lost two of three to the Royals in May, but their cross-state rival has since traded away established pros Mike Moustakas, Jon Jay and Kelvin Herrera. Whit Merrifield leads the Royals with a .300 batting average and .367 on-base percentage. Salvador Perez is still the team’s primary catcher, but he has struggled offensively. He has an on-base percentage of just .269. Danny Duffy leads the Royals staff with a 4.70 ERA and seven wins. The team ranks last in baseball in both runs scored and team ERA.

NICKNAMES RELEASED

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Dakota Hudson has been a starter much of his career, but he’s thrown 8 2/3 scoreless innings coming out of the bullpen for the Cardinals.

He hasn’t done it much as a pro, but he’s done it well BY RICK HUMMEL St. Louis Post-dispatch

Dakota Hudson, a 13-game winner as a starter at Memphis this year, had been in the bullpen before he joined the Cardinals, where he has ripped off 82/3 scoreless innings in relief, allowing just two hits and a walk. He had three saves at Class A Palm Beach at the end of his first pro season in 2016 and he had relieved at Mississippi State. In fact, Hudson, who accomplished his first back-to-back pro appearances Tuesday and Wednesday, said he once worked three days in a row as a sophomore in college during a weekend series. “But I had a week of recovery, so it’s different,” Hudson said. “That was a long year (as a reliever), but I did it once.” Needing just 54 pitches to work his last 52/3 innings with the Cardinals, the 23-year-old Hudson would seem more than able to work on consecutive days although he hadn’t relieved in nearly two years. Of course, he also could be in the rotation here since he was the upper minor leagues’ top starter this year, but the Cardinals have slapped him into the bullpen and that is where he is likely to stay the rest of the season. “Because he has been so good at doing it,” said pitching coach Mike Maddux. “The players will tell you what their roles are. Right now, he’s done a very nice job for us getting to the end of the game.” Possessor of a hard sinker, like fellow reliever Jordan Hicks, Hudson was pitching in Hicks-like situations the past two games in Miami. He protected a one-run lead in the eighth on Tuesday and inherited a two-run lead in the seventh on Wednesday. “I’m trying to get used to getting up and getting going a little quicker than start-

ing,” he said. “I wait till they tell me to throw and I’m ready to go.” Next year, he may be a starter but Hudson, who already has two wins in relief, said, “Whatever role, whatever job. The point is just to have a job. “I just enjoy what I’m doing — trying to figure it out the best I can.” As a reliever, Hudson said he dials back his pitch assortment, choosing to stick with his strengths. For instance, he hasn’t yet felt the need to throw too many changeups, preferring to “keep it in the back of my pocket. I guess I’m waiting to use it more situationally rather than just unveil everything. This is the highest level of hitters so I’m not going to be messing around. “My changeup is my fourth pitch. I’m not saying I wouldn’t throw it, but it would have to be something I’d have to read from a hitter or where Yadi (Molina) is really calling it.” Manager Mike Shildt called Hudson’s first 10 days or so in the majors “consistently impressive.”

GOMBER GETS SOME TIPS The number of starting pitchers who rely heavily on the overhanded curveball has dwindled in recent years, although the Cardinals have had their share from Chris Carpenter to Adam Wainwright to Lance Lynn to Michael Wacha, who has picked it up. Now from the left side comes rookie Austin Gomber, who will make his third big-league start Friday night in Kansas City. Gomber got to spend some time with Wainwright a few days ago in Miami and they didn’t just talk curveballs. Wainwright, for instance, actually had approached Gomber a while back about adding a slider but cautioned him in Miami that he not take away from his curveball and that he might need two different grips for the two pitches. “I love ‘Mad Dog’ (Maddux),” said Gomber. “But there’s something to be said

hearing stuff from somebody we would consider a peer but, at the same time, somebody I was watching pitch in the World Series when I was 12, 13 years old. “When you hear stuff from him, it just resonates different than when you hear something from a pitching coach.” Gomber set the bar high in his first start, working 61/3 hitless innings in a no-decision at Cincinnati. On Saturday in Pittsburgh, he allowed three runs in the fourth inning and left after four, having given up four runs for the game. “First one good. Second one wasn’t as good,” said the 24-year-old. “I think I fell a little too much in love with the new pitch, the slider. It was so good in Cincinnati that first time out, so I just tried to do the same thing. Maybe I didn’t establish the rest of my pitches. I ended up giving up some big hits with (the slider) I can’t try to make it my best pitch in Week One.

“But, I felt even more comfortable in Pittsburgh than I did in Cincinnati even though the results weren’t as good.” Gomber, who threw 71 pitches in four innings, said it had been reinforced to him by Maddux that “strike one is a choice.” The southpaw said he also had learned that if he has a conviction about a pitch, he can shake off Molina. “I don’t shake him off much but he told me at one point, ‘You throw what you want to throw,’” said Gomber. “He’ll always have our back but when you first come up, you’re a little hesitant to shake him off. He told me in Pittsburgh, ‘If you don’t want to throw it, it’s probably not going to work out.’” Rick Hummel @cmshhummel on Twitter rhummel@post-dispatch.com

DeJong may be back on track at the plate after broken hand CARDINALS • FROM C1

the middle of the season is a challenge. For some reason, I drifted away. “Coming off the DL, I was struggling every day and I was saying, ‘What’s going on? What’s going on?’ “Everything felt good. I just wasn’t getting any results. I think it was because I was fighting myself. I was doing something I wasn’t accustomed to. It was a challenge physically and biomechanically to get a good hit. Changing my hand position is going to help a lot. “To start my hands a little lower, my shoulders are in a more relaxed position and my hands are free to hit the ball wherever it’s pitched as opposed to trying to fight myself with one path. If I’m looser with my hands, I trust my eyes and my ability to square the ball up.” Besides his work with hitting coach Mark Budaska, DeJong said teammate Harrison Bader had helped identify the “hands” problem. “He’s shorter to the baseball,” Budaska said. “He was getting there anyway and we actually changed two things, including the angle of his front foot.” DeJong put into practice the new look before Tuesday’s game in which he hit a game-tying homer, a double and a hard fly

to right field. “I knew I was going to have a good game,” he said. After he homered off Miami rookie Pablo Lopez, the 25-year-old DeJong said, “I knew I was going to get a pitch to hit. I know I can hit a pitch down the middle. Those are the moments I think I can provide a lot of — and consistently.” In April, DeJong had seven homers and six doubles. In May, he had one homer and two doubles before he got hurt. From July 6, he had only one homer and four doubles until the Miami series. “Slugging in the .400s is not me,” said DeJong, who had a .532 slugging mark last year. “This year has been wild for me. Tuesday, hopefully, I turned over a new leaf to get to the consistency I had last year. I don’t think it was an accident. I’m not surprised. I think it was because of the adjustment that I made. I don’t know why I got away from what I did last year. “I’m better than what I’m showing this year. It was like it was snowballing. The mental stuff made me do something physically, like me wanting to make up for lost time.” DeJong had 25 homers and 26 doubles in 108 games with the Cardinals in 2017 besides having another 13 homers and nine doubles in 48 games at Memphis. He bat-

ted .285 in St. Louis and .299 in Memphis. “I felt I had a lot of contributions last year,” said DeJong, who hit third much of the season. But he went three for 29 hitting third from July 28 through Aug. 5 this year and was dropped down in the order. Marcell Ozuna was walked intentionally ahead of DeJong in the eighth inning on Wednesday and DeJong responded with a two-run double. “They may have had some old information,” DeJong said. “I was able to make them pay.” That gave DeJong 14 doubles to go with his 10 homers and in 159 fewer at-bats, he already has four more walks (25) than he had last year. “My plate discipline has been better,” DeJong said. DeJong has improved defensively at short and is making more plays both, notably, to his left but also to his backhand. “You have to be able to separate hitting, defense and base running,” he said. “You’re only doing one of them at a time and you can’t let the bat stuff creep into the other areas of the game. Being able to watch Yadi (catcher Yadier Molina) and see which pitches are coming, I’m getting better at reading swings and anticipating where the ball is going to go.” As the Cardinals prepare to wrap up their nine-game, three-city trip in Kan-

sas City this weekend, they have won four consecutive series and are five games better than par for the first time since late June. “We have the pieces, the talent and the energy to pull something off,” DeJong said. “Especially out of the bullpen, we’ve got some guys who are bringing some high velocity and a fearless type of attitude where we can beat some teams and not think too much of it. “We have some guys who can make hitters uncomfortable.” The Cardinals have 47 games remaining, 38 against teams they are either battling with for a wild-card spot or a possible division title. “The sweeps will come,” said DeJong. “But just keep winning series. If we keep winning series, that will put us in a good spot. “I don’t think this team has given up. I think we have a new spark of life. Let’s see what kind of noise we can make. “I’m looking to selfishly do well but for me to play well helps our team.” Budaska has no doubt. “He’s going to go off,” said Budaska.

OOSTY WITHDRAWS LATE

THE WAIT TO SPEND

THE REDEMPTION TOUR

Louis Oosthuizen withdrew about 10 minutes before he was scheduled to tee off Thursday afternoon, citing a back injury. He was replaced by Kelly Kraft, who had been warming up on the range just in case. Oosthuizen is one of seven players to have finished as runner-up in all four majors, including last year’s PGA Championship.

How popular is the PGA merchandise pavilion constructed east of the driving range at Bellerive? At peak hours Thursday afternoon, the line to get into the store was more than 200 people deep, and patrons gained entrance only as others walked out on the other end. That the tent is air conditioned might have played a role.

The 11-player, fifth-place logjam at 3-under includes Ian Poulter and Pat Perez, 42-year-olds enjoying second lives on tour. Perez was in the world top 100 from 200709 before sinking into the 200s two years ago, and now stands at No. 38. Poulter was in the top 20 from 2009 to 2013, ballooned to 184 at the end of 2016, and is currently at 31.

Block gets the honors at Bellerive St. Louisan first off the tee, shoots 75

NOTEBOOK came at the 2015 U.S. Open, where he tied for 12th.

JOHNSON PLEASED WITH 3 UNDER Dustin Johnson, the world’s top-ranked golfer, reached 5 under par after 13 holes, but he bogeyed 14 and 17 to fall into a tie for fifth place at 3 under. “I’m right there,” Johnson said. “Still got a lot of golf to go. I’ll try to come out tomorrow morning and get after it.” Johnson said he missed a few putts and did not drive as well as he would have liked, but he was pleased with his round. Johnson started around noon and played in the heat of the day. He will tee off in the morning Friday. When asked if he has a preference as to start time, Johnson said he does not — during the first two rounds. “Hopefully it’s in the afternoon on the weekend,” he said with a smile.

By scheduling Michael Block in the opening group Thursday at Bellerive, the PGA gave the 42-year-old club professional a memorable moment in his home city. Block, who went to high school at Parkway Central and went on to play golf at the University of Missouri St. Louis, hit the opening shot of the tournament: a 292yard drive in the right of the fairway. “The first shot felt amazing,” he said. “I mean, I feel like such a little peon in the PGA of America world or just the golf world in reality. For them to give me the honor of hitting the first shot in a major championship in my hometown is unbelievable.” Block finished Thursday at 5-over-par 75 — well off the lead — but seemed in good spirits after the round. He said he remembers visiting Bellerive for the 1992 PGA Championship as a 15-year-old, getting autographs from major winners Payne Stewart and Nick Price. Now Block is on the other side of the spectator fence, and he is playing alongside the best golfers in the world. The head professional at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo, Calif., Block grew up a mile from Bellerive and played the course a few times as a kid. During his return Thursday, he saw multiple high school friends in the stands cheering him on. “He’s a heck of a nice guy,” said Ryan Fox, a golfer from New Zealand who was in Block’s group.“I’m sure he would have liked

to score a little better, but he hit some good shots out there and (had) some great hometown support for him. … It was a cool experience playing with a hometown boy.” Block is not a member of the PGA Tour. He qualified as a club professional, placing in the top 20 at the PGA Professional Championship in June. He found out he was in the opening group while practicing at Bellerive this week. “It hasn’t even sunk in yet, what just occurred,” he said. “(I’m) still in the clouds for the moment. This is something I’ll cherish the rest of my life.”

SCHNIEDERJANS IN CONTENTION Ollie Schniederjans arguably owns one of the best names in the PGA Championship field. He also had one of the best rounds Thursday, shooting a 3-under-par 67 that put him just three strokes behind leader Gary Woodland. “We’ve got 54 holes left, so (it’s) good to get off to a good start and be in the mix early, but you’ve got to play four good rounds in a major to have a chance at the end,” he said. Schniederjans turned 25 this summer and is playing at his first PGA Championship. His best previous finish at a major

FLEETWOOD HANGING AROUND Tommy Fleetwood made plenty of fans at Bellerive this week, signing autographs throughout practice rounds. He’s also been playing quality golf. He sits at 11th in the world rankings and has finished in the top 15 in each of his past five tournaments. The 27-year-old from Scotland finished Thursday at 1 under par. “Anytime you’re in a major and you beat the par of the golf course, you have to keep of perspective and say, ‘I’ve done some pretty good golf there,’” he said.

Fans come out in force to see Woods make his St. Louis debut PGA • FROM C1

biggest crowds came out early for the field’s most super of super groups cleverly assigned by the PGA of America for the opening rounds of its milestone championship. The triumvirate of Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy didn’t disappoint the sweat-drenched galleries that followed their every move through five hours around Bellerive. Making his first appearance at the PGA in three years, Woods turned back the clock — not necessarily in Thursday’s first round but during Tuesday’s championship dinner. In the gathering of past winners of golf’s fourth major, defending champion Thomas was asked to pick some fellow players to talk to the room about their PGA experiences. Woods, his frequent playing partner in Jupiter, Fla., drew the assignment. The 14-time major champion chose the 2000 PGA Championship as his subject, noting that on his way to the Wanamaker Trophy at Valhalla, Woods played a round with the legendary Jack Nicklaus, one generation’s king and his rightful successor. “That was (Nicklaus’) last PGA, and he was telling me the story that he played with Gene Sarazen in his last PGA,” Woods said Thursday after salvaging a disastrous start on Bellerive’s back nine. “It’s interesting what this game of golf can do, how we can basically last for so many different generations.” The story doesn’t end there. In the clubhouse that year in Louisville, Ky., watching Woods drain an epic birdie putt on the final hole of regulation was 7-yearold Thomas, the son of a PGA club pro, and now one of the game’s elite young talents. Their worlds collided again Thursday as fans flocked to watch Woods play his first competitive round of golf in St. Louis. “It was pretty wild out there for a Thursday,” Thomas said. Thomas, trying to become the first back-to-back PGA champion since Woods, came into the clubhouse 1-under par on a course still recovering from the week’s extreme weather while Woods and McIlroy gladly took their even scores. “I was able to grind out a score today,” Woods said. For all the concerns that Bellerive’s soft and sticky greens

would yield an abundance of low scores and offer few challenges for the world’s best players, the course held its own through the first day of action. Among the 152 players in the field, only one shot a bogey-free round, Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo, whose 1-under 69 put him in a 15-way tie for 33rd. The day’s 47 rounds of under-par scores came well short of the PGA’s first-round record of 60 set in 2006 at Medinah Country Club. “The (greens) are bumpy, for sure,” Woods said. “They’re quicker than they were on the practice rounds. … But they’re still on the slower side than what we normally play week in and week out. The shorter putts are a little more interesting because they’re a little chewed up.” “Greens are soft, but it’s going to be like that for the rest of the week, I feel like,” said Dustin Johnson, the world’s No. 1-ranked player after a 3-under 67.

In a six-birdie round, Fowler hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation, and on one he didn’t he rolled in a 32-foot putt from the fringe on the par-4 seventh. His 65 was his lowest round in nine PGA Championships and tied for his second-lowest round of the year. Widely considered the best American player who hasn’t won a major, Fowler could shed that label with three more strong days on the course. “I’m definitely happy but Thursday you can’t go win the golf tournament,” he said. Playing four groups behind Fowler, the first few holes for the Woods-McIlroy-Thomas super group were a microcosm of the last few years: Woods had to fight back from his self-inflicted mistakes while his younger peers coolly breezed through the conditions. After sending his opening tee shot on No. 10 into the rough, Woods settled for bogey when he left his first putt short. Things got worse on the par-4

11th hole when Woods’ second shot dropped into a pond guarding the front side of the green. After the one-shot penalty he needed two putts to escape with a double bogey. Woods recovered with a birdie on 12 but sent another tee shot into the rough on 15. As the crowd groaned, Woods grimaced, feigned snapping his driver in half then found his ball beyond the ropes and in the gallery under a stretch of trees. With a horde of fans at his back, Woods blasted out of the rough, curling the ball 144 yards beyond the trees but back into the rough. This time, he escaped with a 70yard beauty onto the green and salvaged par with a short putt. Woods could later laugh about the adventurous hole. “That wasn’t very good, was it?” he said. “I pulled a tee shot, and the wispy stuff right behind the ball grabbed my shaft and turned it down. … The canopy was pretty high. So I tried to play

a shot and pulled it off and made a putt.” Woods got another roar from the gallery on No. 18 when he stuck his approach shot just four feet from the hole, then finished with a much-needed birdie. He played mistake-free on his back nine, hitting eight greens in regulation with a birdie on the par-4 No. 8. With the sun blazing on the course during the afternoon round, Woodland opened with a bogey then unleashed the best putting performance of his career, making five birdies during a seven-hole stretch on the back nine. He made putts of 22, 23 and 44 feet. There’s plenty of golf to play, but for one of the sport’s most ferocious drivers, a remarkable day on the much-discussed greens was enough to carry him to the lead.

KERN LEADS CLUB PROS

THE RYDER CUP WATCH

NO. 8 HELPS SCORES

There are 20 club professionals in the field and Ben Kern leads them at 1 over and is tied for 62nd place overall. In the past six years combined, only two club pros have made the cut: Brian Gaffney did it in 2015, and former touring pro Omar Uresti (75, T-134) is trying to become the first club pro to make the cut in consecutive years since Tom Wargo in 1992-93.

At No. 8 and holding the final automatic berth in the U.S. Ryder Cup standings going into the last tournament to gain points, Webb Simpson solidified his standing with an opening 68. No. 9 Bryson DeChambeau shot 71, No. 10 Phil Mickelson 73, No. 11 Xander Schauffele 70, No. 12 Matt Kuchar 71, and No. 13 Tony Finau stumbled to a 74.

Of the 2,808 hole scores posted by the 156 players Thursday, not one was an eagle. No aces, no hole-outs on par-4s, no 3s on a par 5. But the 610-yard par-5 No. 8 hole gave up more than its share of scoring as the easiest on the course. At one point in the morning, all nine players in groups 3, 4 and 5 made birdie there.

Day’s round recalls a lost friend His 67 comes a day after pal Lyle dies BY STU DURANDO St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Jason Day lived across the street from Jarrod Lyle in Orlando, Fla., during the early days of their professional golf careers. Both are from Australia. On the eve of the 100th PGA Championship, Day received a text message informing him of Lyle’s death from cancer in their home country after he announced recently that he was stopping treatment. Day and other golfers wore yellow ribbons to honor Lyle on the first day of play Thursday. Day shot an opening round 3-under 67 for a share of fourth place and then remembered his longtime friend. “He battled half his life,” Day said. “And the crazy thing is he was always upbeat and positive. No matter what you did, you could be playing terrible, and if you’re playing golf with him, you always walked off the golf course happy.

“For him to first get diagnosed with it when he was 17 years old and then battle three times, it just goes to show how much of a fighter he was inside to be able to keep pushing on even though it is painful to go through the stuff that he went through.” Day’s family has been impacted by cancer. When he was 12, his father died of stomach cancer. Just last year, his mother, was diagnosed and underwent surgery for lung cancer. Hearing of a friend’s death hit close to home for the world’s 10th-ranked player. Day, 30, responded with a solid round that saw him hit 12 fairways and 17 greens with his only major misstep coming on No. 6, where he recorded his lone bogey of the morning. Other golfers, including Rickie Fowler, also honored their friend. Fowler, who is in second place, had planned to wear a dark blue shirt but switched to yellow. “I was lucky enough to be able to talk to him last Friday, so one thing that did help is hearing kind of from him how he felt,” Fowler said. “He sounded like he was in a good spot. It’s been fun thinking about him while we’re out there playing because

he would probably be the one to kind of kick you in the butt if you started feeling sad or bad.” Day is looking for a better performance than he had at the other three majors this year, which saw him finish 20th at the Masters, 17th at the British Open and fail to make the cut at the U.S. Open. Day has a good history at the PGA Championship with a win in 2015, a second in 2016 and three other top-10 finishes since 2010. Through his practice round and Thursday’s start, he found the Bellerive Country Club course to his liking. “It’s straight up in front of you,” Day said. “There’s nothing really tricky about this golf course. It just can be brutally long. ... If you can ball strike your way around this golf course, you’ll walk off thinking it’s pretty simple. If you struggle a little bit off the tee, then it obviously makes it harder.” Day arrived in St. Louis feeling under the weather and looking to get some rest. He blamed his wife for sharing a cold that kept him from attending the champions dinner on Tuesday night. He had planned to do all of his pre-

tournament work on Tuesday, but the rain altered his plans. So he chipped and putted Tuesday and played 18 holes Wednesday, a day he had wanted to rest. He didn’t seem to suffer ill effects. Day started at the tenth hole and his back nine was fairly non-eventful. He had a birdie on 15 to make the turn at 1-under. He picked up another on the first hole but then picked up a bogey on No. 6 and was toying with the possibility of an even-par round. Then came birdies on Nos. 7 and 8 and he found himself in an eight-way tie. “It was nice,” he said. “I definitely gave myself a fair share of birdie opportunities out there but didn’t quite capitalize on the front side. Overall, I’m very happy with how things progressed out there.” Day has two wins this year. They came at the Farmers Insurance Open and the Wells Fargo Championship. However, he has struggled to crack the top 10 in the past five events and is looking for a return to the form that has helped him post 12 PGA victories.

Tiger Woods hits out of a sand trap on the way to a par on the 17th hole during the first round of the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club on Thursday.

Woods shows flashes of ‘Tiger’ in an uneven opening round FREDERICKSON • FROM C1

wound up bouncing it off a stone wall and into the water. Penalty. Another missed putt. Double bogey. Woods had been playing better as of late. His performance in the British Open was encouraging. But two holes in Thursday, he was in big trouble. The 42-yearold four-time PGA champion was sweating so much he changed shirts. He pulled his hat from his head, revealing a bald spot that looked bigger in person. As he entered his third tee box, and the cameras flashed so fast it sounded like shuffling cards, a Southwest Airlines flight buzzed high overhead. It felt like a commercial. Did Woods want to get away? The crowd that gathered in building heat to watch him — watch him win, watch him fail, watch him just to be able to say they got the chance — started to murmur from outside the ropes. The old prizefighter St. Louis had flocked to see was going down in the first round. “There are so many wonderful players,” a fan bemoaned to the group following Woods, “who cares about Tiger?” Judging by the crowd, we still do.

His personal life has warts and his body and game have been eroded by injury and age, but there will never be another like Tiger. There is no need to apologize for wanting to see an all-time great who forever changed his genre, even if he’s beyond his prime. I don’t regret seeing an aged Chuck Berry fumble through riffs in the Duck Room, because it was better than never hearing him play. I won’t apologize for wanting to follow Woods when given the chance. The football Hall of Famer who sweated it out alongside us Thursday agreed. Yes, that was Aeneas Williams in his cap from Canton trailing Woods closely from inside the ropes. The former Rams defensive back has pulled for Tiger since Williams was a student at Southern University in Louisiana. “One of my good friends, Marcus Williams, he was one of the first AfricanAmericans on a golf scholarship,” Aeneas explained as we walked. “We didn’t know anybody playing golf. He wound up running camps for Tiger. To see Tiger come along and play, to bring diversity to the PGA, is great. The whole country is about second chances. To see him back out, and hitting, hopefully he will win another tournament.”

Tiger Woods’ father, Earl, taught him golf. Aeneas Williams taught his son, Lazarus, football. They came together Thursday, and it was hard to tell who was more excited, the Hall of Famer or the 17-year-old SLUH football player. That’s the power of Woods. Woods has changed swings, caddies, sponsors, putters. And he himself has changed. His sore muscles and sketchy back bark for ice baths. What once seemed to come easy now looks like work, and it has for a while. While his media interviews have mellowed and matured, some who have documented his swings since his teens believe he will never catch this comeback he’s chasing. But on Thursday, he turned no chance into some chance. “Just hung in there,” Woods said after he turned his start of bogey and double bogey into an even-par round of 70. Woods’ play after his first two holes Thursday resembled the band of athletic taped wrapped, fittingly, around his middle finger. It was ragged. But it got the job done. And it sent a message. He’s not dead yet. Woods stopped the bleeding with a birdie on his third hole. Three pars followed. A backslide bogey on No. 16 was

countered with a birdie on No. 18, when Woods turned his 7-iron into a magic wand. Two more birdies — and zero bogeys — followed after Woods reached the front nine, where his curses and stomps were replaced by calm waves to his supporters. The hole that defined his day came before the turn. On Bellerive’s 15th, Woods pulled a tee shot into the crowd, prompting a volunteer manning the ropes to blurt out, “worst shot I’ve seen all day.” Woods’ attempt to rip his next shot out of the woods left him ... right back in the woods. But this time he was just 69 yards away from the pin. Once again surrounded by a herd of onlookers armed with recording cell phones, Woods somehow deposited his ball less than six feet from the hole, then sank the putt. It was likely the highest degree of difficulty possible for a par. “That wasn’t very good, was it?” Woods said with a laugh. It looked decent after his day ended. Tiger’s alive, and no one who watched his performance Thursday wished they hadn’t. Ben Frederickson @Ben_Fred on Twitter bfrederickson@post-dispatch.com

COMMENTARY

NCAA adopts college hoops reforms Changes overdue, but still no player compensation

14-ranked recruit in ESPN’s Top 100 in 2017. However, Bowen’s recruitment was a centerpiece of the FBI’s early findings because his father allegedly was going to receive $100,000 to ensure he attended an Adidas-sponsored school like Louisville. Bowen wound up never playing a game for Louisville and was ruled ineligible. Since then he has been cleared of all wrongdoings by the FBI and transferred to the University of South Carolina. But, he never played for the Gamecocks because he was still without an answer from the NCAA about his eligibility, which led to him putting his name into the 2018 NBA draft, where he went undrafted. Somehow, Bowen wound up being the poster child of the FBI’s investigation, along with Pitino, and the face of everything that’s wrong with college basketball. All the while, it was the adults in the room that did the dirt, leaving a kid to be the one to suffer the consequences. Bowen’s situation, like countless others, involved money. Which is why as “great” as the NCAA’s announcement is, I can’t find the energy to celebrate it. I’m not the type of person that applauds people for fixing a problem that never should have happened in the first place. So, until the NCAA figures out a way to compensate student-athletes, I’ll withhold any praise.

BY CARRON J. PHILLIPS New york Daily News

NEW YORK • On Wednesday afternoon, the NCAA’s Board of Governors and Division I Board of Directors dropped the mic on college basketball and the sports world. After coming off a season that included an FBI investigation into the ugliness of the sport, the firing of a Hall of Fame coach Rick Pitino and investigations and subpoenas into multiple programs, an announcement was made that will see groundbreaking changes implemented into the sport. People are happy, and the NCAA is taking a bow. But don’t get it twisted, because while this is awesome, the elephant in the room hasn’t been addressed. These kids still ain’t getting paid. While the announcement addresses an array of topics, here are the major things you should take away from it: Basketball student-athletes can make up to 15 official visits which are paid for by colleges the summer before they begin their junior year of high school. However, they can only make one official visit to a single school per year. Elite high school basketball players can be represented by an agent beginning July 1 before their senior year in high school. College basketball players can be represented by an agent after any basketball season if they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. Agents can now also pay for meals, lodging, and transportation for players and their families if the expenses are related to the agent selection process. College basketball players that participate in the NBA combine and aren’t drafted can now return to school as long as they notify their athletics director of their intent by 5 p.m. the Monday after the draft. Division I schools will be required to pay for tuition, fees, and books for basketball players who leave school and return later to the same school to earn their degree if they were on scholarship for at least two years and fewer than 10 years have passed since they left school. Coaches and athletics staff must report income of more than $600 from any source outside their school. Examples include endorsement or consultation contracts with apparel companies, manufacturers, television or radio programs. All of these things are great and will help clean up the sport in a major way. It’s even fair to say that this should have always been the model since the 90s when players started to leave college early. But, for as good as all this feels right now in the moment, it still doesn’t put any money into the pockets of the people who have made the NCAA a billion-dollar nonprofit organization. The schools make money. Coaches get paid. Fans can bet on games. And shoe companies make fortunes. But yet, the players are still without the proper compensation for their services and aren’t being allowed to be paid for the use of their likeness or make money off of

The NCAA acted quickly to make basketball changes in the wake of last season’s corruption scandal.

their names. Back in May, former Wisconsin star Nigel Hayes shared with the New York Daily News his two-step program that could fix the majority of the NCAA’s problems. “I would do away with the term impermissible benefits, and with that term no longer in use, these athletes are now allowed to accept money from any party that would like to give them some. If a booster wants to give them $5,000 because they had a great game, they’re allowed to do that. If a local restaurant wants to give them dinner, they’d be allowed to do that. And by the same token, if they don’t there’s no harm, no foul.” “And through the use of that, colleges aren’t looked at to try to finance this because you can no longer say, ‘where’s the money going to come from?’ ” Hayes explained. “If no one wants to give any player money, then they don’t have to. If someone does, then they can and now the NCAA doesn’t have to get involved. It wouldn’t hurt small schools because the boosters and restaurants there could do what they want, or choose not to.” Under Hayes’ plan, a student-athlete would also be allowed to make money by using his/her own image or likeness, which is something that should be a priority for the NCAA. Ironically, the announcement was made a day after former McDonald’s All-American and Louisville commit Brian Bowen signed with the Sydney Kings in Australia. Coming out of high school, Bowen was the No.

Here Come the Mummies

El Monstero unwraps a scary musical pairing Here Come the Mummies join the Pink Floyd tribute band for a show BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON | POST-DISPATCH POP MUSIC CRITIC

H

alloween is a couple of months away, but “Monsters and Mummies” will scare up some sounds this weekend at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre. The show presents a unique, first-time pairing: St. Louis Pink Floyd tribute band El Monstero and mysterious funk/soul band Here Come the Mummies, who perform in mummy wrappings and whose real identities are also kept under wraps. El Monstero bassist Kevin Gagnepain came up with the concept as part of his quest to showcase El Monstero in different ways. Last summer, the band performed with the St. Louis Philharmonic Orchestra. “We always wanted to bring in national and regional acts to do stuff with, and they came kjohnson@post-dispatch.com

to mind,” Gagnepain says.“We’re the monsters, they’re the mummies — it’s a great marketing concept. We could have fun with the artwork and with the overall feel of the show.” Mummy Cass (guitar, lead vocals) of Here Come the Mummies says once his band’s agent presented the concept, the band, of Nashville, Tenn., immediately liked it. “We’re looking forward to it,” Mummy Cass says. “St. Louis has always seemed to be a pretty good town for us. We might have had another show booked somewhere else and moved it to do this show. The other place was OK about it.” Some members of Here Come the Mummies are Pink Floyd fans, and some had heard of El Monstero. “I thought we had a pretty good stage show, and then I looked at their show, and I’m like, ‘wow,’” Mummy Cass says. “Their stage show is ridiculous. We’ll have to spend more money on our shows after seeing what they do. “You go to YouTube and type in ‘El Monstero,’ and it’s hard to tell the difference. Some of the El Monstero shows look better than the Pink Floyd shows.” Gagenepain says he and his bandmates had been curious about Here Come the Mummies for years. “After looking up the band on YouTube, we thought they were amazing and hilarious and so fun — and they’re top-notch musicians,” he says. “What a great opportunity to have these guys here with us. It’ll be a scarier side of El Monstero.”

@kevincjohnson

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 08.10.18-08.16.18

The bands view the show as more of a double bill than as one band headlining and the other supporting. They’ll perform separate sets, with Here Come the Mummies going first. The bands will perform together for some songs. “We’re going to give it everything we can,” Mummy Cass says. “I’m a dog — I’m gonna do whatever they want me to do.” Here Come the Mummies are in the process of recording a live album of new songs, with the recordings taking place at various concerts. A couple of the songs could be recorded at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre show. The band is looking to release it in the fall. El Monstero’s set will focus on bigger Pink Floyd hits, though the band expects to throw in a few obscure songs for the truest Pink Floyd fans. “We try to find nuggets in the catalog that people maybe never heard before,” Gagnepain says. El Monstero and Here Come the Mummies appear to have separate fan bases, but they’re not worried about what that could mean for attendance. “People I personally spoke with were in the beginning asking, ‘What’s the deal with the Mummies thing? What’s going on?’ Just check it out. Our fans are gonna love what they do based on their musicianship and fun factor,” Gagnepain says. “The Mummies will convert a few Pink Floyd fans to another life — another afterlife.” WHAT “Monsters and Mummies” with El Monstero, Here Come the Mummies • WHEN 7 p.m. Saturday • WHERE Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, 14141 Riverport Drive, Maryland Heights • HOW MUCH $20-$85 • MORE INFO 1-800-745-3000; livenation.com

Q&A ▼

Devon Allman finds healing through performing After a year off following the deaths of his parents, singer-guitarist Devon Allman is back with the Devon Allman Project. The group’s new tour includes a show Friday at the Old Rock House. Opening is Duane Betts, with whom Allman is forming the Allman Betts Band. Q • How were you able to come back after such a difficult time? A • After 12 years of touring in almost 30 countries and doing 200 to 300 shows a year, taking the year off when my parents died was bittersweet. At the same time, as an artist, we carry around a significant amount of pain. That’s where we draw the art from. Q • How did the tour with Betts come together? A • We’d been talking about it for a long time. It was time for him to front his own band and put out a record. My father (Gregg Allman) was gone, and his father (Dickey Betts, both of the Allman Brothers Band) was retired at the time, so I said, “Why not come on the road with us? We can play our dads’ songs and tip the hat.” Q • Would you and Betts ever do an Allman Brothers tribute album or concert? A • You never say never. But right now we’re excited about writing for the new band. BY KEVIN C.

TAX RELIEF Maddie Poppe performs on “American Idol.”

‘Idol’ singers stay true to themselves on tour BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON POST-DISPATCH POP MUSIC CRITIC

here was never a moment during the most recent season of “American Idol” when Maddie Poppe thought she could actually win the competition. She fell a bit under the radar compared to some other contestants including Gabby Barrett, Ada Vox and Caleb Lee Hutchinson. But Poppe’s consistency paid off. She won Season 16 of the show, which returned in March for

a run on ABC with new judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. “It’s a really big honor,” Poppe says. “I grew up watching the show. I’ve always been a fan. I have memories of watching the bad auditions, watching people like Jordin Sparks and Taylor Hicks being crowned, and watching Kellie Pickler. But I never thought anything like this could happen.” Poppe says Hicks, from Season 5, is her favorite “American Idol” winner. She says this past season’s contestants became close and were rooting for one another to win. So close, in fact, it was revealed on the season finale that Poppe and Hutchinson had quietly become a couple. Hutchinson finished in second place. @kevincjohnson

She says the two of them are doing great and enjoying the post“Idol” experience, which includes “American Idol Live! 2018,” coming Friday night to the Fox Theatre. Performing on the tour along with Poppe and Hutchinson are finalists Barrett, Cade Foehner, Catie Turner, Jurnee and Michael J. Woodard. They’ll perform songs that were popular on the show along with new songs, duets and group numbers. She and Hutchinson are expected to perform a duet together. “We’re pretty much staying true to who we were on the show,” Poppe says. “It’s a cool show because everyone brings their own thing. Though some people may come for their favorites, we all offer something different.” “American Idol” Season 8 winner Kris Allen is a special guest on the tour.

50 years on, Tower of Power is still funky as ever BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ SPECIAL TO THE POST-DISPATCH

ower of Power is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and no one — certainly not founder and saxophonist Emilio Castillo — could have predicted that kind of longevity for the much-acclaimed soul act, originally based in the Bay Area. “I had no vision about the band at all,” Castillo says by phone from Scottsdale, Ariz., not far from his current home of Phoenix. “I was a young kid. I tried to pattern myself after this local soul band, the Spiders. They got a gig in Sacramento, and I thought, ‘Man, if I could just get to Sacramento, I will have far exceeded my wildest dreams.’” Suffice it to say he made it there — and then some. Tower of Power’s horndrenched soul sound set

it apart in the Bay Area scene of the 1960s, which was largely dominated by psychedelic rock. Castillo credits music impresario Bill Graham with opening fans’ ears to a wide variety of music. “Graham started the Fillmore Auditorium and brought in acts like John Lee Hooker, Sam & Dave, Miles Davis, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Eddie Palmieri and Otis Redding to play with bands like Quicksilver Messenger Service, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and the Grateful Dead,” he says. “All these hippies who were expanding their minds at the time, they were going, like, ‘Wow, this is cool.’” When bands like Sly & the Family Stone and Santana hit the scene, adding horns and funky rhythms, the time was right for Tower of Power. After ToP scored hits such as “You’re Still a Young Man,” “So Very Hard to Go” and “What Is Hip?” other bands took notice and hired the band’s horn section to play studio sessions and tour as well. But it hasn’t always been a smooth ride. The band bottomed out in the late ’70s with an album

of disco music whose direction was dictated by the record label; Castillo suffered personal travails as well but has been sober for years. There has also been a parade of personnel through the band. Besides mainstays Stephen “Doc” Kupka (baritone sax), Dave Garibaldi (drums) and Francis “Rocco” Prestia (bass), there’ve been somewhere between 60 and 70 members over the years. A more recent departure was vocalist Ray Greene, who was poached by Santana. Castillo countered by finding a new singer, Marcus Scott. Tower of Power also has some new music to offer. The album “Soul Side of Town” was six years in the making, in large part because the band has been so busy touring. Also, this time it was shooting for the moon. “With our 50th anniversary coming up, our manager told me, ‘You have to make the best album of your career,” Castillo says. “So we decided to do it the Michael Jackson method and record way more songs than we needed and then pick the best 12.” When the record label heard the new material — 28 songs — they wanted to put out all of it. Eventually, it was decided to release “Soul Side of Town” first and follow it up with another album next year.

Nels Cline performs with Wilco in 2017.

Wilco guitarist Nels Cline plays jazz on the side BY CALVIN WILSON ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

els Cline is best known these days as lead guitarist in the alternative rock band Wilco. But Cline has long had a hand in jazz, and on Friday evening his quartet will take the stage at Delmar Hall. In the Nels Cline 4, he plays alongside fellow guitarist Julian Lage, with whom he has formed a musical chemistry. “Two guitars are always better than one,” Cline said, adding that the quartet “is really an outgrowth of the duo that

N

Julian and I started about six years ago. I’ve done a lot of collaborations with guitarists over the years, but the collaboration with Julian is really quite remarkable and unique. “We used to theorize as to what we might do if we had a rhythm section and who we might play with,” he said. “Initially, (the quartet) was going to be co-led by Julian and me, but it ended up being simpler to just make it my thing.” The band is touring in support of “Currents, Constellations,” an album that also finds Cline in the company of bassist Scott Colley and drummer Tom Rainey. On the road, Jorge Roeder is on bass. “Currents, Constellations” is an engaging album consisting mostly of Cline originals. “As Close as That” is a ballad of hypnotic beauty. The appropriately titled

“Furtive” has a subtly ominous vibe. “Swing Ghost ’59” is a quirkily rhythmic tribute to jazz’s heyday. “Temporarily,” composed by jazz maverick Carla Bley, is ironically the closest the band comes to exploring conventional post-bop territory. And “Amenette” has more than a hint of the intriguingly eccentric tunes of Ornette Coleman. Cline cites John McLaughlin, a guitarist who played in trumpeter Miles Davis’ groundbreaking electric bands, as a significant influence on his approach to his music. “I really liked ‘Extrapolation,’ his first (album), and his playing on (Davis’ albums) ‘Bitches Brew’ and ‘In a Silent Way,’” he said. Jazz can be a hard sell to the uninitiated. But name recognition as Wilco’s guitarist helps to bring out a crowd for his combo, Cline said. “I’m not sure that all the Wilco fans are necessarily down with my music,” he said. “But I think twice as many people come to my gigs, no matter what I’m doing, as before I joined Wilco 14 years ago. That’s a huge thing.” With the members of the Nels Cline 4 in high demand for other gigs, there’s a certain amount of doubt about the band’s future, Cline said. “Whether or not this band can continue remains to be seen,” he said. “But I treasure every moment.” WHAT Nels Cline 4 • WHEN 8 p.m. Friday • WHERE Delmar Hall, 6133 Delmar Boulevard • HOW MUCH $20-$25 • MORE INFO 1-800-745-3000; ticketmaster.com

Surprise! Drake uses a track by St. Louis producer ‘Scorpion’ includes a track produced more than a decade ago by Joe ‘Capo’ Kent

PHOTO: TONY CURTIS

BY KEVIN C. JOHNSON | POST-DISPATCH POP MUSIC CRITIC

St. Louis music producer Joe “Capo” Kent got a surprise when he found out a track he produced more than a decade ago is on Drake’s blockbuster album “Scorpion.” “After Dark,” featuring Static Major and Ty Dolla $ign, had been floating around since 2006 before it landed on “Scorpion,” Kent says. Kent had downloaded Drake’s 25-track album the weekend it was released in June, not knowing he was on it. Before Kent could finish listening, he got a call from a friend. “He said, ‘Hey, Capo, they got your track on the Drake album. I said, ‘Yeah, right.’ Then I listened, and I said ‘Oh, my God.’” Faced with this, many would be quick to sue. But Kent looked at the bigger picture. “This could be my bridge back into major things,” he says. “Why not build on this relationship? It’s not about the money. It’s about the love of what I do, planting seeds and watching them grow.” Kent called an industry rep, who worked to have Kent’s name added to the “After Dark” production credits, joining Static Major, 40 and Shaun Harris.

Cards’ roost becomes an obstacle course Spartan race will take competitors all over Busch Stadium BY COLLEEN SCHRAPPEN | ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

John Wilmas of Hazelwood, who has twice made it to the qualifying round for the popular NBC strength and endurance competition, will test his ninja-like skills against other elite athletes in the first wave of the 3-mile obstacle course. Boston-based Spartan’s inaugural race in St. Louis is expected to draw about 3,000 adult competitors, each of whom will tackle more than 15 obstacles, from monkey bars to under-wire crawls. Scaled-down half-mile and 1-mile courses are open to youngsters ages 4 to 13. “When I heard about the Busch Stadium race, I knew I definitely had to do it,” says Wilmas, 37. “It’s an iconic place.” Wilmas has competed in obstacle races, such as the Warrior Dash and the Tough Mudder, in the past, but his main focus is stair running. He has

powered through the 44 floors of the Met building downtown — where he regularly trains on his lunch break — and the 103 flights of Chicago’s Willis Tower, among other skyscrapers. But the Spartan race gives him the chance to flex more of his competitive muscles. “With the obstacles, your heart rate jumps up and comes down,” Wilmas says, which is a different challenge than the quick, constant drumbeat he feels when he’s in a stairwell. To train for Saturday’s spin through the concourses, terraces and locker rooms at Busch, Wilmas has added wind sprints and plyometric exercises to his usual climbs, plus 300 breathstealing burpees every Monday. But not everyone needs to be so steely focused, he says. For those competing in the “open” waves, which run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wilmas recommends concentrating on each obstacle one a

The Spartan obstacle race brings its 3-mile course to Busch Stadium on Saturday.

time rather than thinking of the race as a whole. “Stop, focus and go,” he says. “Watch the person in front of you do it. Ask people, ‘Have you done this? What’s the best way?’ And have fun.” Spartan race director Craig Drummond adds that there will be about 40 staffers on hand to make sure no one gets knotted up in a cargo net or stranded on the gymnastics rings. “You get to help people out. You get to challenge yourself more,” he says. The race will touch every section of the Cardinals’ home, from the nosebleeds to the warning track. Spartan launched the stadium series at Fenway Park in 2012 to give urban folks a chance to do the kind of obstacle races that usually are staged in the farther reaches of the suburbs, Drummond says. “People like the atmosphere of being around stadiums and seeing where their teams play. They get to be in a part they normally can’t be.” And if while in the bowels of the stadium, they have to jump a weighted rope, hoist a sandbag through the clubhouse or scale a 6-foot wall, so be it. In recent years, obstacle races such as Spartan have surpassed marathons and half-marathons in U.S. participation, a surge Drummond attributes to the novelty of a unique setting coupled with unexpected hurdles that keep you on your toes. Sometimes literally. “You’re not just running on a set course,” he says. “You get to experience the whole atmosphere. You can make a day out of it.” Wilmas, who will also be doing the half-mile course alongside his 6-yearold son, Kaiden, attributes the popularity to nostalgia. “The obstacles make adults feel like a kid again. You get to rope climb, like you did in grade school. “It brings the kid out in people, and they get hooked.”

ST. LOUIS BEER LOOP With some of St. Louis’ biggest beer names on this route, it’s the main vein for those new and old to the local beer community. Start at the Schlafly Tap Room, the oldest craft brewer on the block and the one that essentially paved the way for the likes of nearly everyone else on this list. You’ll want to allocate

enough time to take the brewery tour at Anheuser-Busch. And bonus: The beers here (the first two, at least) are free. Gear up for 2nd Shift, one of the fastest-growing beermakers in town. And on most days, provide your own beer insight by providing tasting room feedback at the U.R.B., the research brewery across the street from Urban Chestnut Brewing Co.’s massive beer hall on Manchester Avenue.

Even if you were to drive continuously to every brewery listed on the St. Louis Brewer’s Guild’s website — more than 80 beermakers in all with some being well outside the St. Louis-area boundaries — the fastest route to visit them would take you on a dizzying 1,450-mile road trip that would consume all 24 hours of a day and then some. Ain’t nobody have the time — or drinking capacity — to pull that off. I needed to draft something a bit more effective. So I lopped off some of the outlying breweries (sorry, Tin Mill Brewing in Hermann and Excel Brewing Co. in Breese) and tried to keep each route to a manageable load — assuming you’d want to take in more than a single beer at some of these stops, it’d be hard to visit a dozen breweries in a single trip. It should also be noted that we at Hip Hops do not condone drinking and driving in any form and that, while these imaginary routes would make for great shuttle service lines, we do not recommend doing it on your own unless you have a designated driver. With that caution out the way, here’s my unofficial St. Louis Brewery-Hop map.

INNER-CITY LOOP For all the downtown breweries we know and love that couldn’t fit on the main drag. This route includes some of the newest breweries to hit the market, such as Center Ice Brewing, Brick River Cider and Twisted Roots Brewing Co. One of the stops on the loop hasn’t even opened yet — Rockwell Brewing Co., a brewery made out of shipping containers that will open in September.

Adam Driver (left) and John David Washington in “BlacKkKlansman”

‘BlacKkKlansman’ is daring and essential A true story provides the framework for Spike Lee’s blistering new film ★★★½ BY LINDSEY BAHR | ASSOCIATED PRESS

n 1979, a man named Ron Stallworth, who was the first African-American police officer and detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department, also became a card-carrying member of the Ku Klux Klan and the leader of the local chapter. He would send a white co-worker to play him for in-person meetings as part of the wild undercover operation, but Stallworth was the one on the phone, insisting his hatred for nonwhite races with everyone from the local chapter members to the KKK’s

“grand wizard” David Duke himself. It’s Stallworth’s story that provides the framework for Spike Lee’s blistering new film, “BlacKkKlansman,” but it’s hardly the full picture. Deceptively epic in scope, in “BlacKkKlansman” Lee has made an immensely entertaining film about everything — love, friendship, ambition, civil rights, the power of words and images to uplift and destroy and the various shades and ideologies of racism and revolution that will leave you craving another viewing. John David Washington (Denzel Washington’s son) plays Ron Stall-

worth, a composed and deliberate man who isn’t afraid to ask for what he wants, whether it’s a job or a quick promotion out of the dreaded records room and into undercover work. Many around him are quick to throw labels and make assumptions about what he can and can’t do. His co-worker calls him a toad, because of his race. His black student union girlfriend, Patrice, asks if he’s a pig (i.e. a cop). At work, he seems extreme — a rookie suggesting a dangerous undercover operation to infiltrate the KKK. In life, he seems compliant. As Patrice (a brilliant Laura Harrier) tells him, meaningful change is impossible when working within the structures of a racist system. But Ron has a plan to infiltrate The Organization, and a few around him, like the police chief (Robert John Burke) and two detectives, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) and Jimmy Creek (Michael Buscemi), are at least willing to

go along with it for a while. Flip draws the card to be in-person Ron, which turns out to be a headache of its own when one of The Organization’s members, Felix (Jasper Paakkonen), starts to suspect that he might actually be Jewish. These scenes are riveting to watch, infused with a perfectly executed tension as Flip carefully navigates his way through meetings and interactions with the group, including the docile chapter leader Walter (Ryan Eggold), the maniacally sinister Felix and the perpetually drunk and dumb Ivanhoe (Paul Walter Hauser). They are, on the whole, dopes used for comedic effect, but there is something else going on below the surface. You’re always keenly aware that these shadowy, back bar racists could with the right leader become the mainstream. The acting is expert throughout with standout performances by Washington and Driver, especially, who gets a powerful arc. The supporting cast is also notably strong, including Harrier and Topher Grace as David Duke, who is attempting to take The Organization into the mainstream with a gentlemanly demeanor, polished suits and a politician’s smile. Mind you, “BlacKkKlansman” is not a subtle film and is often repetitive where it least needs it. Stallworth’s “white voice” and racist musings over the phone are perfectly used a few times, until the effect eventually begins to dull. But it is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years, from composer Terence Blanchard. Every frame is packed with meaning and metaphor from the opening, the famous crane shot from Victor Fleming’s “Gone With the Wind,” onward to the sins of the present day. It’s a Spike Lee joint that is not to be missed.

It’s Statham vs. shark in ‘The Meg,’ and this one has plenty of bite ★★★ BY KATIE WALSH TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

t’s as true in 2018 as it was in 1975: There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than with a movie about a really big shark. From “Jaws” to “The Shallows,” moviegoers have been gobbling up flicks about dangerous fish for decades, and it’s time to meet our newest finned foe: “The Meg.” It’s the nickname for the megalodon, a prehistoric shark bigger than a tour bus, but all you need to know about John Turteltaub’s summer action flick is that it’s Jason Statham fighting a shark. You’re gonna need a bigger popcorn. Based on the novel “Meg” by Steve Alten, the Chinese co-production has been smart with its cheeky marketing — “PLEASED TO EAT YOU” and “OPENING WIDE” splashed across posters of swimmers on floaties — and the film delivers on that silly promise while also exceeding expectations.

It’s far bigger than simple one-setting B-movies like “The Shallows” or “47 Meters Down,” boasting a large international cast and several showdowns with the Meg, each wilder than the last. Our hero Jonas (Statham) first encountered the Meg during a deep-sea rescue mission and had to abandon two of his team members to save the rest. Blamed for their deaths and called crazy for his claims that “something was down there,” he’s now washed up and drunk on a beach in Thailand. But as the only person who has pulled off rescues that deep, he’s recruited for a mission at a research facility in the waters off Shanghai. The only reason he shows up is his ex-wife, Lori (Jessica McNamee), is piloting the research sub that’s been stranded by a mysterious sea creature in a deep-sea trench. Aboard the research facility are a motley crew of scientists and hangerson, including father-

daughter team Dr. Minway Zhang (Winston Chao) and Suyin (Li Bingbing); manchild billionaire Jack Morris (Rainn Wilson); various techies (Ruby Rose, Page Kennedy, Masi Oka and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson); Jonas’ nemesis, Dr. Heller (Robert Taylor); and, of course, a precocious child, Suyin’s daughter, Meiying (Shuya Sophia Cai). Each character comes face to face with the Meg after the rescue mission punches a hole in the ocean layer that keeps deep-sea creatures away from regular ocean creatures, and the previously believed extinct megalodon comes chomping through. With so many characters, an established star persona in Statham and a familiar formula, “The Meg” follows and plays with genre convention in a pleasing way. If there’s anything missing, it’s character backstory, but as it turns out, that’s pretty much unnecessary here. We know why Jonas shows up, and then why he sticks around. After that, it’s just jousting matches with the Meg. WHAT “The Meg” • RUN TIME 1:53 • RATING PG-13 • CONTENT Action/peril, bloody images and some language

Profoundly unscary ‘Slender Man’ misses the horror mark ★½ BY KATIE WALSH TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

hat darkness lies in the imaginations of young girls? The mystery has been a source of inspiration for horror classics from “The Bad Seed” to “The Exorcist,” and it could have been a fascinating theme to explore in “Slender Man,” written by David Birke and directed by Sylvain White. Unfortunately, this profoundly not-scary horror film completely misses the mark about what makes its subject matter interesting. If you’ve heard of the internet phenomenon that is Slender Man, it’s likely from a 2014 attempted murder in Waukesha, Wis., where two 12-yearold girls stabbed a friend 19 times and left her for dead. They told police they were acting as proxies for Slender Man, a character they discovered online. The true-crime story was covered in the excellent documentary

W

“Beware the Slenderman,” but the horror adaptation takes a different tack, taking the character literally, as a malevolent force that can be summoned with a ritual. A group of small-town, lightly goth teenage girls stumble upon Slender Man during a sleepover — Hallie (Julia Goldani Telles) jokingly tells her mother “we’re going to drink vodka and meet guys on the internet,” in the film’s only winking line of dialogue, and that they do. Soon, the girls are beset with heinous visions of Slender Man, a tall, faceless man in a black suit. What does he want? Them. What’s he going to do once he gets them? We’re not exactly sure. That’s the problem with a Slender Man horror movie — there are no rules because there is no mythology. The character was created in a 2009 Photoshop contest by Eric Knudsen, aka Victor Surge, and crowdsourced stories and viral videos hunting for Slender Man have made up

the lore. In “Slender Man,” we don’t know anything about him, or what to fear, and the film doesn’t fill that in. All we know is he likes lurking in the woods and strangling young girls — and yet he also has the ability to use FaceTime. Birke’s script is straightforward, a simple supernatural chase story. It doesn’t plumb the depths of what might make Slender Man scary, so “Slender Man” isn’t scary at all. What’s truly terrifying (and what “Beware the Slenderman” illustrates) is the vulnerability of young minds exposed to all manner of folklore and fake news online. “Slender Man” brushes up against that theme with the increasingly hysterical Wren (Joey King) but falls back on the ghost story. “Slender Man” has a moody aesthetic, but White puts Slender front and center. Is Slender Man real, or the figment of an internet-obsessed morbid imagination? The film tries to have it both ways and ends up with nothing.

Furry friends help lift ‘Dog Days’ out of the doldrums ★★ BY KATIE WALSH TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

‘D

og Days,” an omnibus comedy about the unique ability of dogs to connect us to others and ourselves, is the kind of mildly amusing, pandering film that shows up in movie theaters at random times throughout the year when nothing else notable is playing and people are willing to watch just about anything. Yet it still achieves some moments of genuine sweetness. It’s a film about dogs, after all, our collective best friend. Director Ken Marino works from a script by Elissa Matsueda and Erica Oyama that’s essentially mashed-together bits of stories that wouldn’t sustain a whole film on their own. There’s the uptight morning news anchor, Elizabeth (Nina Dobrev), who warms to her new co-host, Jimmy (Tone Bell), when their pups

22

bond. There’s the winsome barista, Tara (Vanessa Hudgens), caught in a love triangle with a hunky vet, Dr. Mike (Michael Cassidy), and an altruistic but nerdy dog rescue center owner, Garrett (Jon Bass). A stoner musician, Dax (Adam Pally), learns about responsibility when his sister (Jessica St. Clair) needs him to watch her pooch while she mothers her newborn twins. In perhaps the most heartwarming subplot, Tyler (Finn Wolfhard) befriends a lonely older man (Ron Cephas Jones) who has lost his beloved pug, Mabel. The wayward pup ends up with the Chapman family (Eva Longoria and Rob Corddry), who are learning to live and love together with the new addition of adopted daughter Amelia (Elizabeth Phoenix Caro), and Mabel proves the necessary glue. All these are wisps of tales, so they’re loosely stitched together — Tara

and Dax live in the same apartment building; Dr. Mike is seemingly the only vet in town, and when the rescue center has a fundraiser for its new facility, all the dog lovers collide. But there’s no real twisty plotting magic at play. These are just the kinds of small-world, city-living connections that occur organically. The script for “Dog Days” gets off to a rocky start, with some painfully outdated genderbased jokes. In fact, it opens on the repeated misgendering of dog therapist Danielle (Tig Notaro), which is played like a slapstick routine and simply doesn’t land. The film rights itself when it starts getting seriously weird, and Marino’s alt-comedy roots start to shine through. David Wain appears as a laconic clown, while John Gemberling, underused as a vet tech, gets his moment, belting out an unwarranted but heartfelt “Amazing Grace.” Veteran comedians like Pally, St. Clair and even Bass get some great ad-libs and one-liners, which add texture to the otherwise bland and placid surface. “Dog Days” is in some ways a very strange movie, in the way it straddles the worlds of weirdo comedy and family-friendly fare. But ultimately, it’s the pooches who steal the show. When these furry friends are able to liven up the doldrums of “Dog Days,” it finally proves the film worthwhile.

Photographs from Lauren Greenfield’s book “Fast Forward” appear in “Generation Wealth.”

‘Generation Wealth’ takes a deep look at shallowness of greed ★★★ BY MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN WASHINGTON POST

P

hotographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield has made a career out of documenting the culture of conspicuous consumption and the commodification of all things — including the human body. In her 2006 feature documentary debut, “Thin,” about women with eating disorders, and the 2012 “The Queen of Versailles,” about a wealthy couple’s attempt to build a house in Florida modeled after the French royal palace, Greenfield has turned her camera on an America obsessed with the superficial. It’s an obsession that has fascinated her for 25 years, ever since Greenfield found the first expression of her artistic voice in photographs of teenagers in Los Angeles, a project that would go on to become the acclaimed and disturbing

1997 book “Fast Forward: Growing Up in the Shadow of Hollywood.” Greenfield’s latest documentary, “Generation Wealth,” is both a continuation of that obsession and a reflection upon it. In a sense, the film is a kind of double portrait, one in which the Los Angelesbred artist and armchair anthropologist sees herself reflected in the mirror of her work, along with her self-regarding subjects. Of the world of privilege and perverse values that she has come to examine so closely — in books, exhibitions and films that dissect unfettered capitalism and the craving for more — she describes herself as both “critic and participant.” What’s missing, however, from this self-examination is perspective. Although “Generation Wealth” features Greenfield’s first-person

narration, as well as interviews with her psychologist mother, Patricia Marks Greenfield, and home-movie-style footage of Greenfield with her sons and husband, the insights into Greenfield’s own psyche feel more scant and superficial than those she gleans from others. Meaty interviews with journalist Chris Hedges, for instance, lend the film needed context and a sense of intellectual detachment. Needless to say, Donald Trump appears in the film, if only in passing, about a half-hour in, when the businessman-turnedpresident’s role as an avatar of the American Dream — a self-made mogul, or so he would have us believe — is held up as an explanation of his political ascendancy. We voted for him, in other words, because we want to be him, or at least to believe the version of him we saw on “The Apprentice.” Interviews with the subjects, now 40-ish, of “Fast Forward,” paired with shots from the book of their former, less introspective adolescent selves, also add useful substance and poignant wisdom. Greenfield, for the most part, wisely leaves the preaching to others. If “Generation Wealth” has a message that empty acquisitiveness is bad, it delivers it, like the rest of her work, by showing, not telling.

THE MOVIE EVERYBODY WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS SUMMER GAYLE KING

SPIKE LEE’S GREATEST FILM

Jason Kingsley and Emily Perl Kingsley in “Far From the Tree”

Documentary about family will make you cry — for right reasons ★★★ BY ANN HORNADAY WASHINGTON POST

he documentary “Far From the Tree” takes its title from Andrew Solomon’s best-selling 2012 book in which, with characteristic grace and insight, he interrogated the rejection he felt from his parents when he told them he was gay. Also characteristically, Solomon turned the book into something deeper than a solipsistic wallow, broadening his inquiry to include several other families whose expectations — about children and unconditional love — were upended by real-life experience. Rather than reproduce Solomon’s book (which, at 800 pages, would have made for an epic slog), filmmaker Rachel Dretzin wisely decided to cast her film primarily with people outside its pages. Readers who enjoyed “Far From the Tree” will instantly recognize Jason, a man

with Down syndrome who became a TV superstar in his teens but has settled into a less dazzling but high-performing and contented adulthood with his two similarly abled roommates. And they’ll recognize the elegant, eloquent Solomon, who is a producer of the film and appears on camera with sensitive observations about his own life, conventional notions of happiness and one of the most affecting feel-good scenes of the summer. But fans of the book will be just as glad to meet Jack, an autistic teenager whose parents are at the end of their rope when they encounter an unexpected breakthrough; Leah and Joe, a photogenic couple who are thriving with dwarfism and who are contemplating becoming parents; and the Reeses, a family whose son has committed a horrific crime. In less sensitive hands, suggesting any kind of equivalence between

★ Skip it ★ ★ So-so ★ ★ ★ Good ★ ★ ★ ★ Excellent stltoday.com/go

cognitive or physical difference and an irrational, reprehensible act could be perceived as fatally problematic. But Dretzin’s aim is to present viewers with multiple versions of one story, which is how parents and children learn to accept one another when things don’t turn out as planned. In the Reeses’ case, the answer is the rueful recognition that love can coexist with a shameful, agonizing truth. In the case of the other characters, “Far From the Tree” offers bracing examples of people letting go of their preconceptions and projections to celebrate one another for who they are, regardless of labels or limitations. Of course, getting there can be excruciating. Clocking in at just over 1½ hours, the film could have benefited from more detailed material about how the Reeses came to terms with the moral injury of their son’s behavior. But “Far From the Tree” still offers inspiring glimpses of the breakthroughs that can happen when people hang in long enough to come to terms with life’s most sobering realities. And it provides welcome ways to reframe notions of normality that are too often conflated with “average.” Fair warning: By the end of “Far From the Tree,” tears will be shed — and for all the best reasons.

Fashion designer Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen doc is the best of year’s many fashion movies ★★★½ BY MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN WASHINGTON POST

here are two Alexander McQueens in “McQueen,” the fascinating documentary portrait of the acclaimed fashion designer, who committed suicide in 2010 at the age of 40. One is the eternally boyish McQueen we see on-screen, in both archival footage of media interviews and behindthe-scenes glimpses of his creative process. That McQueen — “Lee,” as this product of London’s East End was called by those who knew him, using his first name and not the somewhat grander middle one he adopted for his clothing brand — resembles a pudgy child prodigy: brilliant, prone to button-pushing but pleasantly down-to-earth,

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

T

especially when talking about his meteoric rise to the heights of haute couture. That softness and sweetness remains, even when, late in the film, he appears much thinner and more brooding, the result of drugs and a gathering darkness. But a second McQueen, one given to outbursts toward his co-workers and occasional personal vendettas when he felt betrayed, is only spoken of in interviews with his friends, muses, mentors and creative colleagues and never emerges on camera. If there was a devil hiding inside McQueen — and it is not hard to imagine that there was, given his controversial designs, which infamously evoked violence and rape in early shows — it remains hidden from our view. Oblique discussion of the sexual abuse McQueen suffered

★ Skip it ★ ★ So-so ★ ★ ★ Good ★ ★ ★ ★ Excellent stltoday.com/go

as a child at the hands of his brother-in-law shed some light on his demons. What does come under the spotlight are the clothes. Just as the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 2011 exhibition “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” focused on the oxymoronic nature of McQueen’s art — simultaneously punky and polished, nose-thumbing and deeply thoughtful — the film by Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui lavishes attention where it belongs: on the wearable, at times almost sculptural objects created by McQueen in his short 18-year career, first for his own namesake line and later for the house of Givenchy. The fashion shows we see are risque, angsty, intense and provocative, even questioning the nature of beauty. Robotic arms shoot spray-paint on the white dress of a twirling model in one. In another, set on a stage that turned the catwalk into a padded asylum, the show culminates in a finale featuring a heavyset, naked model inspired by photographer Joel-Peter Witkin’s “Sanitarium.” McQueen, you see, wasn’t interested in pretty things. Or, rather, as “McQueen” makes clear, he wasn’t only interested in pretty things. As McQueen himself puts it, directing our attention to where it matters, “If you want to know me, just look at my work.”

Mundane meets marvelous in AMC’s ‘Lodge 49’ Almost everyone is hungry for connection in satirical small-town comedy BY ROBERT LLOYD | LOS ANGELES TIMES

f I wind up sounding a little daffy on the subject of “Lodge 49,” a 10-part series that began Monday on AMC, it is in part that it feels like I have been sent a gift, tailor-made to my sensibilities. An hourlong comedy, rich with dramatic complication and depth of feeling, it is not without crises and conflicts, but it is also not weighed down with murders or monsters. No one here has a

I 26

superpower — few have any power at all, for that matter, and even then it’s mostly the illusion of power. They have opposing interests at times, but there are no real villains, no antiheroes. The series was created by Jim Gavin, an acclaimed writer of short stories mostly set in Southern California, but “Lodge 49” feels more like a big comic novel. Although it has a very different story to tell, parts of it put me in mind of Mike White’s “Enlightenment” and David Milch and Kem Nunn’s “John from Cincinnati” in setting and tone and of a less-mannered “Fargo,” minus the moral compromises and brutality. Wyatt Russell, looking like a young cross between his actor-dad Kurt and Jeff Bridges in “The Big Lebowski,” plays Sean “Dud” Dudley, an aging young man whose life has been derailed by the one-two punch of a debilitating snakebite during a surf trip to Nicaragua and the death of his father, presumed drowned off the coast of Long Beach, not long after Dud’s return. Whether this disappearance was intentional is an unresolved sore point between Dud and his sister, Liz (Sonya Cassidy). Dud, for whom their father could do no wrong, believes it accidental. Liz, saddled with debt from a loan

knows a good deal about everybody else’s business does not mean they understand one another well, a show about community in which most everyone is hungry for connection even as they are holding someone else at arm’s length. Declarations of deep feeling are often left to hang in the air. There are eccentric characters here — and there are a lot of characters — but with rare exceptions they are not played eccentrically. (Even “Evil Dead” star Bruce Campbell, when he arrives late in the story, gives a relatively measured performance.) Their lives are shaped by myths and legends, from the history of the Lynx to the never-glimpsed developer called only Captain, and “Lodge 49” has the quality of being mystical without mystical things actually happening. (Or do they?) “Signs and symbols, Ernie,” says lodge member Blaise St. John (David Pasquesi), the house philosopher, when Ernie tells him about the crows. Characters are repeatedly seen dreaming, or waking up from dreams — more than a few times hung over in unfamiliar surroundings. There are hallucinations — or are there? — as fleeting as a blinking woman in a still photograph and as hard to ignore as a floor full of stars. The show never winks at the viewer; it never pushes a point with a tricky camera angle or cute underscoring. There is a kind of calm to much of it, whether we are in the permanent dusk of the lodge’s tavern, or the doughnut shop were Dud hangs out, or in the mostly empty offices of a dying aerospace corporation. Action does erupt every so often, but for the most part “Lodge 49” is a medium-paced story, driven by conversation. It isn’t slow — it’s remarkably busy, in fact — but it’s in no rush to give up its secrets, either. Seemingly random comments and mysterious glimpsed events may not be explained until an episode or two or more later, if ever — there are doors left open at the end of its 10-episode season, possibly to be walked through in a second. But the first feels close enough to complete, and I will likely watch again. WHAT “Lodge 49” • WHEN 9 p.m. Mondays • WHERE AMC • MORE INFO amc.com/shows/lodge-49

she co-signed for him and paying it off with grim responsibility, takes the former view. While Liz labors with apathetic efficiency in a Hooters-like “breastaurant,” Dud is squatting in his old apartment and staking out the house he grew up in, lost to foreclosure. Blithely incapable of living more than half a day ahead, he gets by on money borrowed from his sister or taken out in usurious loans from a pawn shop in the strip mall where his father’s pool-maintenance business used to be; he also sweeps the beach for lost change. One day he turns up a ring in the sand, bearing an emblem he learns is that of the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx, a kind of junior-grade Masons, with a parallel historical interest in alchemy. By fate or happenstance — in fiction, of course, where coincidence is a tool, they amount to the same thing — Dud runs out of gas in front of the local Lynx lodge, Lodge 49. Here he encounters Ernie Fontaine (Brent Jennings), a 59-year-old industrial plumbing salesman and lodge “knight” we have met earlier, shooing crows away from his house with a BB gun. Dud, dreamy and a little dim, insists that they were meant to meet — Russell plays him with the childlike qualities of a silent film comedian — and that he and Ernie are “in cahoots.” (Among other things, Dud tells his sister, “We both have a background in residential hydronics.”) Ernie insists they are not, and that sometimes a social club is just a social club, though he is emotionally invested becoming its next Sovereign Protector. This is a satirical small-town comedy, in which the fact that everybody

cheese Ben Poremba is serving at his new restaurant, the Benevolent King. You will want to eat jben anyway. This is what the tub of cream cheese in your fridge imagines when it looks in the mirror: a cool, thick spread, neither tacky or pasty, with the breezy sweetness of cream and a gentle tang of buttermilk and yogurt. Poremba decorates the jben ($12) with dill, dried mint and fennel pollen and serves it with crudites for dipping. The cheese is great with the snappy crudites — and even better

slathered on batbout, warm, airy Moroccan pita. The Benevolent King, which opened in April in downtown Maplewood, marks a return to the kitchen for Poremba, who with Elaia, Olio, Parigi and Nixta has established himself as one of St. Louis’ premier chef-restaurateurs. In 2016, however, after Poremba and his wife welcomed their second child, he decided to become more restaurateur, less chef. This didn’t diminish his restaurants. He handed the reins of Elaia and Olio to the tremendously talented Ben Grupe; the Italian Parigi showcases veteran chef Ramon Cafe, the Mexican Nixta rising young talent Alex Henry. Still, Poremba’s voice as a chef is singular, informed by his native Israel, his mother’s native Morocco, the Jewish diaspora, by classical continental cuisine and progressive modern dining. It remains the inspiration for Olio’s menu, and it hums in the background

of his other restaurants, but I missed it speaking directly. The Benevolent King’s space, formerly the restaurant and cocktail bar Water Street, offered the ideal circumstances for Poremba’s return. The dining room seats only 30, and the open kitchen at the rear of the narrow storefront is even smaller. “I don’t have the time or stamina or energy to run a brigade kitchen like Elaia,” Poremba told me in a phone interview when he announced the Benevolent King. The Benevolent King is certainly more casual — not to mention less expensive — than Elaia. Casual too is how Poremba has described the Benevolent King’s approach to Moroccan cuisine. The food is nontraditional Moroccan or Moroccan-inspired or, more broadly, what Poremba likes to eat at home. The menu is divided among snacks, salatim (a selection of small salads and spreads, like mezze) and main courses. Specific dishes change frequently based on what is in season and on Poremba’s whims. (Poremba knows me from numerous visits to his restaurants over the years. At the Benevolent King, he sent some small dishes I hadn’t ordered to my table. This accomplishes nothing but make me uncomfortable. Each dish was on the regular menu, so I added the cost of each to the tips I left.) The Benevolent King’s menu rewards, maybe even demands, grazing. Begin with the jben, of course, and a plate of olives ($6) goosed with citrus juice and habanero chile. You will want something crunchy. Split-pea falafel ($9), with harissa-spiked yogurt for dipping, boast an interior as tender as any falafel in town. Briouat, thin, cigarshaped phyllo shells filled with sardine ($8) or chicken ($10), crackle rather than crunch. Preserved lemon and harissa punch up the sardine’s intense fishiness, while honey, cinnamon and turmeric bathe the chicken in sun. The salatim (three for $20; five for $30; seven for $40) are a cross section of Poremba’s influences. Pungent

Salatim, a selection of small salads and spreads, at the Benevolent King

maqbouba, charred tomatoes with chile, mint and garlic in red-wine vinegar, hails from North Africa. The smoky, garlicky eggplant dip smoothed out with crème fraiche is Romanian, while the modestly briny fish-roe dip ikra arrives from the Balkans via Israel, where it is popular and was one of Poremba’s childhood favorites. Rather than conventional hummus, Poremba serves masabaha, a warm, rough-hewn version made when I ate it with lentils. Compared to the snacks and salatim as well as to Poremba’s cooking elsewhere, the main courses I ordered at the Benevolent King were restrained. The selection usually includes the breaded shrimp mogador ($18), the best fried shrimp you will find this far from the Gulf Coast, sweet as if just plucked from the sea and spiked with chile heat. When I ordered the dish, Poremba served the shrimp over a crisp, peppery salad of arugula, jalapeño, radish, lime and capers. The tagine of lamb meatballs in smoked-tomato sauce with the traditional Moroccan spice blend ras al hanout ($18) looks like a dish of meatballs in sauce. It unfolds in layers of flavors, though, with the meat’s natural grassiness and a note of ginger yielding to the smoky sauce, which in turn gives way to a lingering chile heat. I was less enamored of tuna ($24) grilled medium-rare, a fine piece of fish bluntly seasoned and paired with

(With purchase of an adult dinner entree and a beverage. Drink not included)

a shaved-fennel salad and a muted fava-bean puree. Poremba’s mother, Rachel, occasionally joins him in the Benevolent King’s kitchen, and a selection of her cookies ($10) is a staple of the dessert menu. Take these home to nibble on as a snack. At the restaurant, feast on pasteria ($8), a couscous-ricotta tart that is to cheesecake what jben is to cream cheese. Tony Saputo, who made his mixology bones at Eclipse, Layla and Atomic Cowboy, has put together a cocktail list that finds balanced, cohesive flavors and textures in daunting will-that-work? ingredient lists. The Commander of the Faith ($16) is typical of Saputo’s approach, a mezcal drink precisely blended with amaro, vermouth and Curacao so the mezcal’s smokiness doesn’t cloud the other flavors. The masterstroke ingredient is aquafaba, the liquid you drain from chickpeas, which gives the drink a silken, foamy texture. My favorite drink here is the Prince of the Believers ($14), a swanky riff on the gin-and-tonic with crème de violette and the apertifs Bonal and Capertif. It’s refreshing enough to cool down the inevitable return of summer’s fury, complex enough to sip well into autumn.

2018 Range Rover Td6

DRIVING WITH DAN By DAN WIESE Contributing Automotive Writer

Diesel helps palatial off-roader sip fuel The 2018 Range Rover is to off-roading what a Class-A motorcoach is to camping. Sure, in the RV you are, indeed, at a campsite and, sure, you can even exit the coach for a campfire, but this is no tent. "Camping" in such a coach -- microwave oven, flat-screen TV, air conditioning, room-expanding power slide-outs -- is to roughing it like a smartphone is to two tin cans and a string. In the tent's defense, you can buy a decent one for less than a hundred bucks. With the motorcoach, you'll pass six figures without even trying. Ditto the Range Rover. Offered in standard- and long-wheelbase versions, this pride of the United Kingdom will tackle a gnarly off-pavement trail with aplomb. It'll even wade a trail's designated stream crossing up to a depth of nearly 3 feet. But -height-adjustable air suspension, multi-mode Terrain Response transfer case, zero-to-60 dashes, depending on engine, as low as 5.1 seconds -- this is no bushwhacking roughneck. However, in the bushwhacking roughneck's defense, you can get a Jeep that'll climb a rope for less than 30 grand if you're OK with two doors, a rag top and a stick shift. With the Range Rover's sybaritic luxury layered atop trail talent, you can get into six figures without even trying. Our sample did just that, bottom-lined as it was at $108,040. For 2018, Range Rover is available with five motivational choices: a 3.0-liter, 340hp supercharged V-6; a 380-hp version of that same six pack; a 5.0-liter, 518-hp supercharged V-8; a 557-hp version of same; and a 3.0-liter, 254-hp V-6 turbo diesel grinding out a stump-pulling 443 lb.-ft. of torque through its standard eight-speed automatic. One more choice -- a plug-in hybrid powertrain -- is arriving for 2019.

2018 Range Rover Td6 diesel

Undeniably off-road capable, the 2018 Range Rover spices its in-the-rough talent with in-themoney luxury.

We drove a standard-wheelbase 2018 Range Rover HSE Td6 -- Td6 being RangeRover-speak for turbo diesel, six-cylinder. On the road, this guy is bank-vault solid and quiet as a library. The diesel in our ute returned 23 mpg around town -- in a two-anda-half ton vehicle! -- while providing enough pep to greet 60 mph in 7.5 seconds. For 2018, the already palatial Range Rover adds some styling tweaks, techno perks and cabin updates. Wedded to its trademark sleek-box perso04

RIDES MAGAZINE

na, styling changes are subtle -- new grille, LED headlights, reshaped hood, upgraded LED taillights. Inside, a bevy of knobs and buttons get jettisoned in favor of a new twin-stack display-screen setup in the center stack. The upper screen is primarily for navigation and audio while the lower display likes to show climate info and driver settings. That said, information can easily be mixed and matched on each screen at the driver's whim. Despite the sumptuous cabin -- real wood, creamy leather, supportive sport buckets -Range Rover never forgets it's an SUV. With its pampering perks, it also provides towing talent north of 7,700 pounds, lots of toting space, loads of cargo flexibility via a 40/20/40

This guy has a lot to offer, and parent brand Land Rover knows it. Range Rover prices start at $88,345 for a base V-6 and top out at nearly 180 grand for an SV Autobiography Dynamic with a supercharged V-8. To afford one, I'd have to sell the house and live in an RV . . . uh, a tent.


In cold weather, car literally freezes out driver DEAR CAR TALK: I have a 2004 Hyundai Accent two-door. This is a winter question that I’d like to get fixed now, before it starts happening again. When the temperature drops below freezing for more than a week, I cannot open my doors from the outside. I have to crawl through my trunk and open the doors from the inside, or leave a window open so I can reach in and use the inside door handle. I cannot afford to get it fixed right now, but I am tired of crawling through my trunk. What is wrong, and is it an expensive fix? Thank you. - Kathy

that stuff can freeze, too. The solution for that is to remove the inside door panel and expose the inner workings of the door. Once the inside of the door is exposed, you can have someone operate the handle, and you’ll see what’s moving easily and what’s not. Then clean up everything you can, spray it with WD-40 (I would not use lithium grease on that stuff) and hope that keeps it from freezing. The hardest part of that job is getting the inside door panel back on. It attaches

with a bunch of clips, and you never end up with the same number you started with. And if you do leave the door panel off -which you can -- you have to be careful not to get grease or WD-40 all over the left side of your clothes when you’re driving. But if it’s a choice between elbowing in through the trunk and driving with a poorly attached inner-door panel for a while, I think I know which one I’d choose. Good luck, Kathy. You want to buy a used car, but how

DEAR KATHY: That must be quite a show you’re putting on for the neighbors every morning, Kathy. We’ll look for you on YouTube. There are lots of problems that can crop up inside old car doors. One possibility is that the latch mechanism itself is freezing. That’s the easiest thing for you to fix yourself, Kathy. You just open the door, and at the edge of the door (the edge that faces toward the back of the car when the door is closed), you’ll see the latch mechanism. Start by spraying that with some WD-40 to clean it up and remove any dirt and moisture that you can. And then spray it with some lightweight lithium grease to lubricate it and repel moisture. You can get both of those things at any auto-parts store or department. If that doesn’t fix it, then the problem is inside the door. There are a bunch of rods and levers that connect the outside door handle to that latch mechanism. On old cars, they can get sloppy, rusty, bent or broken, so that the motion of your hand on the door handle is no longer getting transmitted to the latch. And if there’s water in there, all 05

She was South in today’s deal. East’s aggressive pre-empt jockeyed North-South into a dangerous heart contract on a 4-3 fit. A contract of five clubs, instead, would have only needed declarer to lead a club to the king on the first round of trumps. Auken won the opening spade lead with her ace and immediately led the jack of clubs. Had West risen with his ace, he would

NEW YORK TIMES CROSSWORD have been able to give his partner two club ruffs to defeat the contract. This was far from clear and ducking the ace seems like the normal play. Auken played dummy’s king and continued with another club to her 10. West took his ace and gave his partner a club ruff as South unblocked her nine. She ruffed the spade return with dummy’s queen and led a low heart to her jack, which West had to duck. She ruffed her last spade with dummy’s king of hearts and now made the key play. She cashed dummy’s king of diamonds before leading a diamond to her ace and then leading the 10 of hearts. West won with his ace, but he had to put Auken back in her hand, with either a trump or a spade ruff, to draw the last trump. Had Auken not extracted both of West’s diamonds, he would have been able to put dummy on play with a diamond and assured a trick for his eight of hearts.

HOROSCOPE • JACQUELINE BIGAR Note: Bigar’s Stars is based on the degree of your sun at birth. The sign name is simply a label astrologers put on a set of degrees for convenience. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult.

★★ You could feel depressed. Although tomorrow’s eclipse is unlikely to affect your life, you still feel its draining influence. Do your best not to allow the vibes mar fun moments. A loved one wants to share feelings. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.

If Aug. 10 is your birthday • This year you won’t be complaining of boredom. You even could be found praying for some downtime. Your active life allows you to meet several people from different walks of life. A Leo encourages you to jump past a self-imposed barrier.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You’ll be observing your friends and wondering what is ailing them. Many of them could be very moody or touchy. Know that they are feeling the vibes of the solar eclipse. Tonight: Make the most of the night.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ You could feel as though others are out of control. Could this comment possibly apply to you? Once conversations take a more even tone, you could get some important feedback. Tonight: Let off steam. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★ You might have difficulty letting go of pressure, as so much could be occurring within your personal life. Relax — you cannot change the situation, but soon you will see an opening. Maintain a sense of humor. Tonight: Head home early. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Your sixth sense always informs you when you have pushed too hard. Others could be acting out in strange ways. Know that a solar eclipse occurs tomorrow. Many people could be reacting to its energy. Tonight: Swap war stories. CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★ You feel the ebb and flow of the tides, but you also respond to the gravitational pull of the planets. Be aware of what is going on around you. Many people feel out of kilter. Indulge a friend, and do what he or she wants. Tonight: Dinner for two. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★★ You seem to be functioning on a high level. The unexpected becomes more frequent when you are out among the crowds. People express their feelings and insecurities in what they hope is a meaningful way. Just do your thing. Tonight: Greet the weekend in grand style. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ You probably did not expect to be in the limelight. A boss appreciates you. Make strong choices. A loved one could act strangely. Soon, his or her strange ways will become normal! Tonight: Dance the night away!

DEAR ABBY

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

One-way friendship ends, but guilt remains Dear Wounded • One way to stop feeling guilty and get on with your life would be to acknowledge in your head and your heart that the relationship with Camille was not a healthy one for you. In fact, from the way you have described it, it was more like a bad habit. Bad habits can be difficult to break, but many people have been able to accomplish it by replacing a bad habit with a good one. Instead of feeling guilty for not rubbing Camille’s feet, consider getting a pedicure for yourself. Dear Abby • My siblings and I, all born in the ’50s in a small town, have fond memories of our childhood. After our mother died in 1989, our father married “Sylvia,” a new arrival in town. They lived together in our childhood home until his death in 2016. We “kids” wanted to honor our parents and our fond childhood memories. We endowed a plaque for the town park dedicated to their memory and noting they had raised a family in that community. Sylvia is now furious

that she was not included. Sylvia came on the scene after we were raised. She’s not our parent and played no part in the memories we wanted to honor. Although Sylvia was a good wife to our dad, she did her best to erase all traces of our mother from Dad’s memory and from his home. Were we wrong? She has rebuffed our attempts to explain. — Confused in Pennsylvania Dear Confused • You weren’t wrong, but it would have been better had you discussed your plans for the plaque with Sylvia before donating it. That way, you would have been able to explain to her the reason why she wouldn’t be on it. She may still be grieving the loss of your father, so try to understand. And by the way, it is not out of line for a second wife to make her husband’s home “her own.” Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Differences: 1. Arm is longer. 2. Tie is missing. 3. Glass is missing. 4. Button is missing. 5. Nametag is lower. 6. Nose is smaller.

Dear Abby • My “friend” from childhood, “Camille,” has never had my back. I have done the heavy lifting in our friendship our whole lives. While I was on vacation two years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer. I immediately and drove to the hospital at 1 a.m. to be by her side. I’ve always been by Camille’s side for everything, even though she hasn’t been there for me. I went to every chemo and doctor appointment, and was there every day to rub her feet to make her feel better. I threw her a party for 100 people to “kick cancer’s butt,” took her on a vacation — it goes on and on. I ended the one-sided friendship last year. My problem is, I feel guilty. I feel I left her with cancer. But I also feel that because someone is sick doesn’t give them the right to be abusive. Camille hasn’t tried to contact me, either. She has told others she will never speak to me again. I’m hurt and don’t know how to move on. Help! — Wounded on the East Coast

MISS MANNERS

TV FRIDAY

No LOL about it: Focus on phones is a problem

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

Dear Miss Manners • In this digital age, I increasingly find myself brought up short at store entrances and exits, at escalators and in the middle of sidewalks by people who must respond to a text immediately. My response has been to say, “Excuse me,” with the hope that the persons blocking my path will step to the side. But what is the polite follow-up when they do not move? (At times, I have bumped into them, but this does not seem an optimal strategy.) Gentle Reader • Perhaps Miss Manners has enjoyed too much slapstick, but causing a human pile-up seems to her an amusing strategy for making your point — if only you could keep from harming anyone in the process. In lieu of that, a gentle touch to move the traffic-blockers should startle them into never wanting to cause the problem again.

Dear Miss Manners • I am a tall gentleman, and many times when I go to sit in a theater, the patrons behind me will become upset and say vile things, fearing that I will block their view. I slouch as far as can, but sometimes that does not ease their perceived inconvenience. I try to ignore the conversation, though it is barely a foot away and fully audible, and can be upsetting. I am sensitive to the needs of others and do my best to appease them without acknowledging insults, but many times the barrage continues. Gentle Reader • Face the situation with your tall head on. Miss Manners recommends you say something like, “I am so sorry that I am a bit vertically wellendowed. I am doing my best to stay out of your way.”

Dear Miss Manners • I was given a gift while out with friends for an occasion that was not the one being celebrated (specifically, a gift for my new baby while out for a friend’s birthday). I thanked the giver and tucked it under the table to be opened later. When I called my friend to thank her, she mentioned she wished she could have seen my face when I opened it. Was I right not to open it on the spot? Gentle Reader • As your friend delivered this present at her convenience, it is only fitting that you opened it at yours. You were tactful to wait.

DR. KEITH ROACH

ZITS • By Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman

Gallstones are the biggest reason for gallbladder removal Dear Dr. Roach • My husband’s doctor is telling him to have his gallbladder removed because sometimes he has pain in his right side. They did all kind of tests, but he has pain when he drives long hours or when he eats salads, not fried or fatty foods. Can you tell me more about the surgery? — A.M.

FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

SPEED BUMP • By Dave Coverly

Answer • Almost every time a gallbladder needs to be removed, it is because of gallstones. Gallstones are common. Most of the time, people have no symptoms. It isn’t always clear whether symptoms people have are due to the gallstones that are found on imaging studies, such as CT or ultrasound, but there are some clues to help decide whether a gallbladder needs to be removed. The classic symptoms are pain in the right upper abdomen, especially after eating a fatty meal, such as fried food (some people eat salads with lots of fatty dressing). Sometimes gallbladder pain is not foodassociated. Symptoms at nighttime are not uncommon. Nausea, bloating, lower chest pain, belching and burning pain are all well-described with gallbladder disease, and the proof comes when surgery relieves the symptoms. Sometimes, the imaging test can give clues. Unfortunately, doctors aren’t always right. Occasionally a person’s gallbladder is removed, and it doesn’t help the symptoms. Then, a new search needs to be done to discover the true cause. Most people do very well after gallbladder surgery. The liver itself takes over the job of storing bile, in the ducts of the liver, and bile is released into the intestines appropriately after eating. However, it takes time for the system to get adjusted to not having a gallbladder, and only 60 percent of people are completely back to normal after three months.

Dear Dr. Roach • I’m 85 years old. I have numbness in my hands — sometimes the right, sometimes the left; sometimes both hands. It lasts only a while. My doctor feels that it’s a pinched nerve in my neck. Any advice? — J.B.

DRABBLE • By Kevin Fagan

MARK TRAIL • By James Allen

Answer • A pinched nerve in the neck becomes more prevalent as people age. The nerve can be compressed by bony structures in people with osteoarthritis in the neck (this is spinal stenosis), or by disk material in someone with a herniated disk. Having symptoms on both sides is less common than having symptoms consistently on one side only. A careful physical exam can give clues that this is the case, but an MRI or other imaging study is the best way to be sure of the diagnosis.
