Police discipline is central issue in fray By CHrISTINE ByErS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • After several attempts at asking nicely, Mayor Francis Slay is about to force John Clark to resign from the Civil Service Commission — a move Clark believes is based on his outspoken criticism of police disciplinary matters. Clark isn’t going quietly. Slay sent a letter to Clark 10 days ago notifying him that he will be forced to resign from the commission following a remark he made during a meeting in May. Slay accuses Clark of saying, “I will not vote in favor of anything that supports the police department.” It is a sentiment that shows Clark cannot be trusted as an

THE PRE-CIVIL WAR ERA IN MISSOURI

By KOraN addO aNd aLEXaNdra STUCKEy St. Louis Post-Dispatch

This year was always going to be tough going financially for certain Missouri college students, specifically the ones who’d grown up in the state but had been born outside of the country. About a month before the school year started, the Legislature put in place a rule that said colleges and universities have to charge so-called DACA students the highest tuition rate available. For some students, this meant they would be paying more than double what they expected. DACA students are those who are brought to

GM to pay $900 million, avoid charges in deaths By TOM HayS aNd TOM KrISHEr Associated Press

By dOUG MOOrE St. Louis Post-Dispatch

LadUE • The call came into the Kod-

ner Gallery last month. The man identified himself as an art collector from Washington state and asked: “Are you interested in archival Missouri-related material?” Jonathan Kodner, the gallery director, said his interest was piqued.

Art by Missourians or work inspired by the state is central to the gallery’s business. But any serious conversation about making a purchase would require a bit more information. Turns out the prospective seller had something with which Kodner was unfamiliar. But he got excited after doing a little research. In 1939, Chicago artists Edward Millman and Mitchell Siporin entered

a nationwide competition to paint a series of murals for a new post oice on Market Street in downtown St. Louis. The murals were to represent the history of Missouri. They, like the other artists, were asked to submit a series of small panels that would represent the much larger pieces to be painted in the lobby See MUraLS • Page a8

From Columbine to Ferguson, a journey for this columnist TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

April 20 is the day that bookends much of my career as a journalist. It started with Columbine. That is the day in 1999 when two mad teens walked into a high school in Littleton, Colo., where I grew up, and massacred 12 students and one teacher before turning their guns on themselves. I was walking into a Rotary meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz., when I caught a glimpse of a tracker with the news on the bottom of a television. All I saw was “high school” and “Colorado” and “mass shooting.” At the time I had two kids in high school in Colorado. I high-tailed it back to the office. Called my ex-wife to see if the kids were OK. Turned on the TV to follow the news in my old hometown. Then I wrote. I was a publisher of a business magazine at the time, having graduated from the world of weekly and small daily newspapers, including the one based in an oice just a couple of miles from the madness at Columbine High School. I knew the principal. The sherif. Many of the teachers. The neighborhood. Most journalists have this hard-to-explain altered gene when it comes to tragedy. Sadly, it is often when we do our best work. Emotions are high, and the stories must be told. Adrenaline takes over. In my gut, I was mad about not being in Littleton that day. Not telling the story that would grip a nation was eating at me. So I wrote. I wrote of my hometown, of better times, of lost innocence. Despite having written a column of one sort or another for most of my career, I

didn’t write much as a publisher, save for those front-of-the-magazine publisher’s notes that told readers what a great magazine they were about to read that month. When this column published, the reaction caught me by surprise. That day, one of my graphic artists came into my office and sat down with tears in her eyes. “We didn’t know,” she said. “Didn’t know what?” “That you could do that.” The moment cut like a double-edged sword. Every writer wants to hear that they moved somebody, or their piece got cut out and placed on a refrigerator door with a banana-shaped magnet. But it was tough to realize that after a couple of years of looking at profit-and-loss statements, I was living a lie. It was time to return to my roots and exchange quarterly bonuses for life as a writer. I ended up in Columbia, Mo., where I was a city editor who wrote a weekly column. Eventually, I turned it into a full-time gig as a metro columnist. It was the best job I ever had. There I met my wife, started a new family, and we’ve called Missouri home ever since, moving to Springfield, back to Columbia, and for the past four years St. Louis. This week, I returned to the best job in journalism, that as metro columnist, having the honor of following in Bill McClellan’s footsteps. Why? April 20, and another national tragedy, again played a role. This year, that is the day the Pulitzer prizes came out. Along with my colleague Kevin Horrigan, I was named a finalist in editorial writing, the job I have had off and on now for seven years in two cities. Our work this year was centered on yet another tragedy, Ferguson. The connection — April 20, Colum-

Francis Howell board to try again in April for tax hike but doesn’t set an amount BY MARK SCHLINKMANN St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. CHARLES COUNTY • Six weeks af-

ter Francis Howell School District voters rejected a big property tax increase, the district’s board decided Thursday night to try again at the election next April. But the board held off deciding how much of an amount to seek the next time around. The board also voted against imposing any new budget cuts the rest of the current school year. The board was sharply divided on each issue, voting 4-3 both to hold another tax election and against further cuts. Among the cuts being considered was slashing school bus transportation. Board member Amy McEvoy, who proposed going before voters again, said the board and other district oicials need to reach out to people who voted no at the Aug. 4 election to come up with a plan many of them could support. “We need to do this for the community,” she said. “We need to put the past in the past.” McEvoy said she personally would favor a tax hike proposal of 45 cents per $100 assessed valuation. That would be

half of the 90-cent increase that was turned down last month by almost a twoto-one margin. Board president Mark Lafata was among those voting “no” on the idea of another tax election. He said while he was a strong supporter of the 90-cent hike, it’s just too soon after the overwhelming negative August vote to schedule another one. More research and contact with the community is needed, he said. “We’re not there yet,” he said. Board members opposing further immediate cuts indicated they believed the district is in good enough fiscal shape and has enough money in reserve to get through the current school year. The bus service reduction plan had called for limiting busing to students living more than 3.5 miles from their schools. That would have started in January at the start of the next semester. That would have cut of free transportation for about 7,600 of the district’s 17,000 or so students and save the district $2.5 million this school year and $5 million if continued for the 2016-2017 school year. The dollar impact would

have been higher than the district previously estimated. One parent, Heidi Fuentes, complained at the start of the meeting that trimming bus service would be “devastating.” She also urged the board to give affected parents the option of paying a fee to allow their children to keep using them. The board last January voted to eliminate about 80 jobs, about half of them teachers. Most were handled through attrition. The 90-cent tax hike rejected last month would have raised $20 million annually. For a home valued at $200,000, taxes would have gone up $342 a year. Critics of the tax hike had complained that the board should have sought voter approval before approving salary increases for teachers and other stafers. A contract passed by the board in late 2013 gave teachers a 6.5 percent salary boost in the 2014-15 school year and a 5 percent increase in the current school year.

bine, Ferguson, my journalism journey — led to some serious reflection. As the son of a coach, I’ve always approached the journalism business with a certain competitive spirit. I left a job as a publisher to write. To make a diference. To change the world. To compete at the highest level. Now it’s time for the next challenge. Bill McClellan is (current tense) a legend. So, to be clear, I’m not so much filling his shoes as starting a new conversation. That’s what metro columnists do. We talk to readers, connect to their stories, and share them with the world, in a way that is often more personal than what an editorial writer does. We’ll share bits of our soul with each other and hope the result is the sort of connection that can make a diference in our individual and collective lives. At church a couple of weeks ago, we sang a hymn that struck me as a fair description of what a metro columnist should do. Keep in mind, the words in the song are about God’s power, not man’s, but they speak to a certain “fight for the underdog” mentality that should guide what I write in this space. “You’re the defender of the weak,” we sang. “You comfort those in need. You lift us up on wings like eagles.” Together, we can tell stories that accomplish those goals, while mixing in some old-fashioned watchdog reporting and occasional political analysis.

HIV status caused job loss, federal suit says

LAW & ORDER

St. Louis light medic wants his job back BY ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-dispatch

ST. LOUIS • A flight paramedic from St. Louis claims in a federal lawsuit that he was improperly removed from his job in an air ambulance because he is HIV-positive. The suit, in U.S. District Court in St. Louis, says the decision by Air Evac Lifeteam to reassign Clinton Moore to a dispatch center was driven by “misconceptions, outdated beliefs, and irrational fears.” It insists that Moore poses no threat, and accuses Air Evac, of O’Fallon, Mo., of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Missouri Human Rights Act. Air Evac issued a statement Thursday saying it “strongly believes its actions were in full compliance with the law and in keeping with its commitment to patient safety and to treating its employees fairly.” It said the company asked Moore to “participate in a medical review process that the Centers for Disease Control recommends for health care professionals performing ‘invasive procedures,’ similar to procedures that would need to be performed by a flight paramedic.” Moore would have needed to contact medical boards in the states where he flew to ensure he was “in compliance with our government regulators.” “Mr. Moore chose not to seek medical clearance. Accordingly, Air Evac was not in a position to ensure the safety of its patients and crew members by keeping Mr. Moore on flight status,” the state-

ment says. Representatives of the boards in Missouri and Illinois did not respond to messages seeking comment. Andrea Weddle, executive director of the HIV Medicine Association, a trade association for physicians and clinicians who work in HIV medicine, said that the CDC regulations are outdated and should be withdrawn. With the advances in management and treatment of the virus, she said, infected health care workers should not be subjected to any special oversight or restrictions. Weddle also said she had never heard of a health care worker being required to seek the approval of a series of state medical boards. The company said it upgraded Moore’s position in the operations center so he would earn more and retain his medical insurance. Moore needed the coverage, so he began his dispatch job in January 2014, the suit says. One of Moore’s lawyers, Kyle Palazzolo, issued a statement that said, “Sadly, people living with HIV too often find themselves terminated from jobs solely because of their HIV-positive status.” He added, “Clint and many others like him still suffer the consequences of their employers’ fear and ignorance.” Palazzolo called the conduct “especially troubling” because a health care provider “should already be aware that Mr. Moore’s HIV-positive status did not present a risk.” Moore began work for Air Evac as a flight paramedic on Jan. 12, 2008, the suit says. In November

2013, he was diagnosed with HIV, and applied for a medical leave on Dec. 5, 2013, to “aggressively” treat the disease. That led to Air Evac’s finding out about his HIV status, and triggered the company’s decision to remove him from duty, the suit says. Palazzolo said Moore was open to using his name in the suit, saying, “He knows this is important to educate folks.” The American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons says a blood-borne virus can be transferred only if the health care worker has some condition that allows direct exposure of blood or bodily fluids to “a patient’s wound, traumatized tissue, mucous membranes, or similar portal of entry.” The association says that there have been only four reports worldwide of an HIV-infected health care worker passing the virus along. Missouri law sets up a voluntary evaluation process for health care workers who perform “invasive procures” and are infected with HIV or hepatitis B. The lawsuit says that Moore’s job involved “airway management,” starting IVs and administering medicine — not “exposure-prone, invasive procedures” that could put patients at risk. Air Evac says that it is the “largest independently owned and operated air medical service provider” in the country, with 115 bases and 1,900 employees in 15 states. A nurse and a paramedic go on each mission, the company says. Robert Patrick • 314-621-5154 @rxpatrick on Twitter RPatrick@post-dispatch.com

ST. LOUIS > Driver charged with manslaughter • A woman police say intentionally rammed her SUV into an Interstate 55 median divider during an argument with her boyfriend, killing a back-seat passenger, has been charged Young with involuntary manslaughter, misdemeanor assault and felony possession of marijuana. Eileen N. Young, 31, of the 3700 block of California Avenue, surrendered to police Wednesday and was held in lieu of $100,000 cash bail. Police said it happened about 3:15 p.m. Feb. 5 on northbound I-55 near Loughborough Avenue, as she drove with her boyfriend in the front and three other people in the back. During the argument, Young threatened to crash the SUV, then swerved into the divider. Larry Wilson, 60, of the 3400 block of Juniata Street, died when he was ejected as the vehicle lipped. The other occupants had lesser injuries. Court records show that Young has no previous criminal history in Missouri. PACIFIC > Man killed by train • Melvin Adams, 51, was struck and killed by a train about 10:59 p.m. Wednesday while walking or riding a bike at a crossing at North Olive Street near East St. Louis Street, police said. Adams lived in Paciic. Oicial said the warning lights were lashing and gates were down when it

Background checks deemed a deal breaker

Two proposals to be debated by the St. Louis Metropolitan Taxicab Commission highlight the divide that still remains about what rules ridehailing companies would need to follow in St. Louis and St. Louis County. A likely scenario is the commission approves changes to its vehiclefor-hire code to allow companies such as UberX to operate here, as long as drivers undergo fingerprint-based background checks as cabdrivers must do — a requirement that Uber says is a dealbreaker. One proposal mandates fingerprint-based checks to be conducted by the Missouri Highway Patrol for drivers who work for “transportation network companies” such as Uber. Uber says its background checks are thorough and calls the fingerprint mandate burdensome for its drivers, half of whom drive six or fewer hours a week. Uber says such a rule would prevent it from coming to the St. Louis area. Some taxi commissioners cite the state law, which mandates the fingerprint checks, that created and governs the commission as why they cannot waive that requirement, and say Uber’s safety checks don’t go far enough. The other proposal, which came from the St.

LINCOLN COUNTY > Suspect sought in shooting at vehicle • Investigators with the sherif’s oice are looking for a person they believe shot randomly at a vehicle driving near Moscow Mills on Tuesday night. A woman told police she was driving south on South Chantilly Road about 11:15 p.m. when she approached the bridge near Ethington Road. She said someone walked into the middle of the road and ired several rounds. Three of the rounds, which were identiied as .25-caliber, struck her vehicle. The woman sped away and got help at a gas station in Old Monroe. She was not hurt. The shooter is described as about 6 feet tall, wearing a black and red lanneltype shirt and possibly a face mask. The sherif’s oice believes the shooting was random and has sent extra patrols into the area. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the sherif’s oice at 636-5286100.

MISSOURI LAW ON FINGERPRINTING The St. Louis Metropolitan Taxicab Commission was established by state law and must follow that law’s provisions, which include that drivers must be ingerprinted. Other Missouri cities that have Uber, such as Columbia and Kansas City, don’t have to follow that law, and local authorities can set their own rules on ride-hailing services.

Louis Mayor Francis Slay, aligns with Uber’s wishes and allows drivers for ride-hailing companies to be exempt from the portion of the taxi code that mandates fingerprint checks. Commissioner Chris Sommers, an Uber supporter, predicted Thursday that commissioners will approve the version requiring fingerprints, thus keeping the company out of the St. Louis market. “I will not vote for it,” he said. “But I will probably be the only one.” The commission, at a meeting on July 29, was unable to reach a decision about ride-hailing services because the two sides ultimately were too far apart. Since then, several meetings have been held between Uber and local oicials. But it appears a similar stalemate could occur Friday, when the commission meets at 10 a.m. in the St. Louis County Council chambers in Clayton in what could be a rehash of what happened during the first try to get something passed.

Sagar Shah, general manager for Uber in St. Louis, said in a statement that Uber is disappointed the commission is pushing through an “antitechnology proposal” that is essentially the same as what was presented at the July meeting. “It’s clear this lastditch maneuver is designed to protect taxi interests from any competition, and it’s wrong,” the statement said. “This commission has let down the people of St. Louis who deserve the same transportation choices that are available in every other major American city.” Uber says St. Louis is the largest metropolitan area in the country not to allow UberX, an appbased ride-hailing service in which drivers use their own cars to ferry passengers. Several other commissioners have been clear about supporting fingerprint-based background checks in the past. State law requires that four members of the commission, which includes eight members and a chairman, be from the local taxi industry. Three members currently are, but a taxi driver is supposed to be on the commission as well. That spot has been vacant since August 2013. The decision of whom to appoint is up to County Executive Steve Stenger, who was elected in November. So it remains to be seen if any vote will resolve those issues to both sides’ satisfaction.

shooting death of Michael Brown in 2014 found racially biased practices on the part of law enforcement. In a June 24 iscal 2016 budget message, Ferguson’s Assistant City Manager Matthew Unrein said the city recognized it was in “perilous circumstances” and that continuation of the status quo would result in insolvency sometime in iscal 2017.

Franzen inspired at Webster Groves High Novelist Jonathan Franzen is among those featured on Webster Groves High School’s Wall of Fame. He moved to Webster Groves when he was 5.

Jonathan Franzen entered the auditorium of Webster Groves High School on Thursday and saw a place that hadn’t changed all that much since he graduated in 1977. The prominent author walked up on stage — the “big stage,” as he remembered it. The jazz band was playing music from his era — Stevie Wonder. “There’s a familiar smell, but the AC changes everything,” Franzen said to Steve Leftridge, an English teacher who invited him to be part of the school’s All Write festival. A few minutes later, a b o u t 9 0 0 s t u d e n ts filled the dusty blue seats throughout the first level and balcony to see one of their school’s most famous graduates, the man who turned down Oprah’s Book Club endorsement in 2001 because he feared it would turn away male readers. Some were prepared to ask Franzen, 56, about technical aspects of writing and self-editing. Others were curious how this high school and this community had shaped him. “I’m sitting in the dark backstage, reflecting on various things,” Franzen

said, holding a microphone, wearing a black button-down shirt, black jeans and glasses. “I was thinking about what a difference the teachers here made to me.” There was a math teacher, who was also a competitive bridge player. There was the physics teacher who had a bed of nails and a banana drying operation in the store room, “the only fruitarian I’ve ever known,” Franzen said. “It was he who really got

a bunch of us going into writing,” Franzen said. “And it came out of the physics department.” As Franzen describes it, Webster Groves High in the 1970s was a place with eclectic teachers and creative students, a school that didn’t resemble the conformist place depicted a decade before in the CBS documentary, “16 in Webster Groves.” His physics teacher, Bill Blecha, saw art in science. He asked Franzen and his classmates to paint murals

on the classroom walls and write a play evangelizing science. “And shockingly, people liked it,” Franzen said. Franzen held a copy of that play in his hand, perhaps the only one that remains with both his and the co-author’s signatures. A Connecticut publishing company paid $100 to publish the play. A part-time science teacher, Philip Wojack, had found the copy at home. It was Franzen’s first time back to speak since

his novel “The Corrections” was published in 2001. In 2003, he and friends gathered outside the high school in an attempt to re-enact a prank they’d attempted in 1976, when they spent a sleepless night on the roof of the high school and repeatedly — and, ultimately, unsuccessfully — tried to drop a steel-belted radial tire over the school’s 40-foot-tall flagpole using an elaborate pulley device. The second time they were successful, using five enormous helium-filled balloons to hoist the tire up and above the top of the pole. “There’s no particular moral of that story,” Franzen told the students. “Except, I’m sure you’re all very smart. But one day, you’ll be smarter.” Franzen, who is in town promoting his latest novel, “Purity,” was born near Chicago but moved to Webster Groves when

he was 5. After he left for Swarthmore College, he never returned to the St. Louis area to live. “How do you feel about Webster Groves now that you’ve been away from it for such a long time?” one girl asked. “There couldn’t be a better place to grow up, as far as I’m concerned,” he said. “I am who I am because of what happened, especially in my six years between sixth and 12th grade.” Becca Riley, a senior, said she bought and read “Purity” when she learned Franzen was coming. She listened from the front row. “He’s super sarcastic,” Riley said, “which is my personality. It’s funny to see how awkward he is. I see kids in my school like that now and think they could probably be famous when they’re older.” Elisa Crouch • 314-340-8119 @elisacrouch on Twitter ecrouch@post-dispatch.com

Mayor says commissioner Clark can’t be objective POLICE • FROM A1

objective and unbiased commissioner, the letter states. During the commission’s monthly meeting this week, Clark loudly voiced his belief that the police department is intentionally keeping disciplinary matters away from the commission by issuing suspensions of less than 15 days. Under a provision known as Rule 19, only longer suspensions go to the commission on appeal. Clark suggested that the provision is a way for police to keep their dirty laundry away from civilian scrutiny, and maintain a “good old boys” culture. He said Slay is after him because his remarks are being portrayed as antipolice, and the mayor cannot aford politically to polarize the police union. On Tuesday, Clark prompted a preliminary vote to drop the threshold of commission involve-

ment to a 10-day suspension. “Our objective was to make this transition to local control as smooth as possible, and cutting the threshold to 10 days may give them the impetus to start sending more appeals over here,” Clark said. Clark’s motion to change the rule passed, but it must be voted upon again at the commission’s October meeting. A public hearing on his removal is set for 9 a.m. Sept. 25 in room 714 of the Carnahan Courthouse downtown. Should the proposed change even make it to the commission’s agenda, the police union is prepared for a fight, said its business manager, Jef Roorda. “It would be a patently illegal breach of contract,” Roorda said. “And if you start tugging at this thread, everything unravels.” A contract with the Police Officers Association, adopted during negotia-

tions in transferring state control of the department to City Hall, says suspensions of less than 15 days can be appealed to a “summary hearing board” that includes a peer and two higher ranking officers. It has the final word. A suspension of 15 or more days can be appealed to the Civil Service Commission, whose decisions can be appealed to the circuit court. Roorda disputed the notion that the rule is intended to shroud police from civilian scrutiny. “Clark knows this is a hot-button issue, and that’s not at all what’s going on here,” Roorda said. “Our guys surrendered their appeal rights in favor of a summary board.” Clark has been in Slay’s crosshairs for months. Earlier this year, Slay called for Clark’s resignation, saying the appointee didn’t have enough time for the position because he spends two months a

Decision could lead to review of objections to contraceptive mandate HEALTH • FROM A1

organizations to offer contraceptive coverage to employees — even indirectly — would violate the groups’ religious freedoms. The decision was at odds with that of every other appeals court that has considered the issue. Those courts have said the government’s compromise was adequate. Such splits among the courts usually compel the Supreme Court to settle the issue. The case would be something of a sequel to the court’s ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, in which the justices ruled 5 to 4 that some private employers do not have to comply with the contraceptive mandate if doing so would violate the business owner’s religious beliefs. In that case, the government did not ofer an accommodation to the employers. The Afordable Care Act requires that women covered by group health plans be able to obtain contraceptives at no additional cost. Originally, only religious organizations such as churches were exempted. But after protests from religious nonprofit groups, the government devised a work-around for them. To be eligible, a religious organization must certify to its insurance company that it opposes coverage for

contraceptives, or it must send a letter to the government saying so and provide the name of its insurance company. The insurers and government take over from there to provide the services. But the religious groups say those options each serve as a “trigger” that allows the contraceptives to be provided and makes the groups complicit in what they consider sin. The nonprofits say this violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which says government must have a compelling reason to substantially burden religious beliefs and the requirement must be the least restrictive means for achieving the government’s goal. A string of appeals courts has said the government’s accommodation takes care of the problem. “All plaintiffs must do to opt out is express what they believe and seek what they want via a letter or two-page form,” U.S. Circuit Judge Cornelia Pillard said when such a case came before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. “Religious nonprofits that opt out are excused from playing any role in the provision of contraception services, and they remain free to condemn contraception in the clear-

est terms,” she wrote. But in cases involving Heartland Christian College and addiction services nonprofit CNS International Ministries, both in northeast Missouri, the unanimous panel of the 8th Circuit parted ways. “The question here is not whether CNS and HCC have correctly interpreted the law, but whether they have a sincere religious belief that their participation in the accommodation process makes them morally and spiritually complicit in providing abortifacient coverage,” wrote U.S. Circuit Judge Roger Wollman. “Their affirmative answer to that question is not for us to dispute.” Wollman said that there is no question that the fines imposed for failing to comply with the mandate would be a substantial burden on the groups and that the government did not meet its burden of proving there was no other way to meet its goal of providing women with contraceptive coverage. There have been dozens of lawsuits objecting to the mandate, and several are already at the Supreme Court waiting to see whether the justices will agree to hear them. The next term begins next month.

year in Thailand. Clark said then that causes him to miss only one meeting. Slay was unavailable for comment Thursday. During a commission meeting Tuesday, Clark noted that the commission has upheld the police department’s recommendations on three of the four discipline cases that have come before it. But the reversal in April of Police Chief Sam Dotson’s rec-

ommendation to terminate Officer Matthew Schanz following a domestic dispute thrust Clark into the headlines once more. Dotson and the city of St. Louis are now suing the commission over the reversal. Dotson said Clark’s belief that the police are trying to avoid public scrutiny is “completely false.” “We are on the cusp of welcoming a civilian over-

sight board, so it’s a completely false, uneducated, uninformed statement to say we’re trying to hide,” the chief said. The Civil Service Commission is an autonomous entity set up by the city charter to review personnel matters, with members appointed by the mayor. Only its votes are public.

ChappelleNadal will quit board in U. City State senator wants to focus on landill dangers BY JESSICA BOCK St. Louis Post-dispatch

Maria Chappelle-Nadal, the Missouri state senator who also serves as a director on the University City School Board, said Thursday that she will resign from her role in the district. Chappelle-Nadal made the announcement on St. Louis Public Radio while a guest on “St. Louis on the Air.” As of Sept. 30, she said she will no longer sit on the School Board and instead focus on the issue of radioactive waste in the West Lake Landfill. Although she has been studying the issue for four years, Chappelle-Nadal said after reading Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster’s most recent report she felt that it was time to focus her efforts there. Koster said on Sept. 3 that radioactive waste dumped in the West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton has contaminated trees and groundwater outside its perimeter. “As much as I love being on the School Board, I can’t do it anymore. It’s been my favorite volunteer opportunity I’ve ever had because I care about education so much,” Chappelle-Nadal told the PostDispatch later on Thursday afternoon. “But I have to refocus and put more time into this Bridgeton landfill issue and Coldwater Creek. I’m going to be doing a lot of researching ... finding out what sources need to be responsible for the conditions in the community I serve.” The landfill’s owner, Republic Services, has said there is no public health threat. This month, Chappelle-Nadal criticized St. Louis County for diverting health department funds that might otherwise be directed to addressing the “ongoing” West Lake Landfill and Coldwater Creek “environmental crisis” to the park system and other county programs. Chappelle-Nadal has been on the University City School Board since 2010. Her term was set to expire in April. During her time in dual roles, she had the peculiar position of sitting on a school board as the state Legislature has tried to create a fix for the controversial school transfer law during the last couple of sessions. A spokeswoman for the University City School District said officials had not formally received a letter of resignation as of Thursday afternoon.

East St. Louis police layofs on hold City-union talks continue, says Parks BY TIM O’NEIL St. Louis Post-dispatch

EAST ST. LOUIS • Six city employees have been laid off and talks continue to reduce the number of firefighters and police officers here, city manager Alvin Parks said Thursday. Parks said eight police oicers who were to be laid of Saturday will remain on the force during negotiations with the officers’ union “for a solution other than layofs.” Parks said he also is negotiating

ST. LOUIS > College savings program seeks donations • An initiative launched by St. Louis Treasurer Tishaura Jones this fall to start college savings accounts for thousands of kindergartners in traditional public and charter schools in St. Louis is seeking donations. In the back-to-school fundraising campaign by College Kids, every dollar donated through Saturday will be matched, up to $500. The matching funds are provided by the 1:1 Fund, a national nonproit group that supports children’s college savings accounts programs and incentives. College Kids also will receive a $500 bonus after 25 new donors give to the program. Donations are taxdeductible. Jones is using discretionary funds from parking meters and garage revenue to automatically seed each account with $50. The campaign will raise funds for program incentives. (Jessica Bock)

with the firefighters’ union to cut that force through attrition. T h re e we e k s ago, he announced plans to lay of 17 of Parks the city’s 50 firefighters and eight of its 53 police officers. The city faces a deep deficit in its $19.5 million general operating budget, mainly because of a continued drop in fees from the Casino Queen — its biggest single source of revenue. Layoffs became entangled in politics in August, after new Mayor Emeka Jackson-Hicks announced a process for cutting the

workforce to plug a $5.7 million deficit. A few days later, the City Council abruptly fired her pick for city manager and hired Parks, the former mayor, who had lost to Jackson-Hicks in the April mayoral election. Jackson-Hicks, as mayor, presides over the five-member council. She has been holding town hall meetings since the council voted 3-2 to return her former rival to City Hall. On Sept. 9, she held a press conference to complain that Parks was deciding budget matters without council input. The mayor was out of town Thursday and could not be reached. Parks said he chose to lay off

six administrative employees and continue talking with the police and fire unions to limit the danger to public safety. “Nobody wants to lay of police or fire. Those are base-line services,” Parks said. But he added that laying off the six civilian employees Sept. 10 “didn’t even come close” to closing the deficit. The budget for 2015, adopted when Parks still was mayor, assumed $7.2 million from the Casino Queen. He said Thursday the latest estimate was $6.3 million. Ten years ago, the city’s take of casino revenue was $14 million. Tim O’Neil • 314-340-8132 @timoneilpd on Twitter toneil@post-dispatch.com

Oicers stress dangers involved in search for Bowe Bergdahl

U.S. signs $1 billion settlement with tribes The administration of President Barack Obama has approved a nearly $1 billion settlement with hundreds of Native American tribes, apparently ending a quartercentury of litigation over the failure to reimburse the tribes for providing services that are the federal government’s responsibility. The federal government for years had contracted with the tribes to provide services such as schools and law enforcement, but then failed to fully reimburse them, saying that Congress had not appropriated enough money. But in a 5-4 decision in 2012, the Supreme Court ordered the government to pay up. If the agreement is approved by a federal judge in New Mexico, the money will be distributed among 645 tribes or tribal entities.

Hearing held to determine whether sergeant should face court-martial BY JUAN A. LOZANO Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO • The commanders of Sgt. Bowe Berg-

dahl’s platoon, company and battalion testified Thursday at a hearing to determine if he should face a court-martial for leaving his post in Afghanistan six years ago, and each stressed that the ensuing search put his fellow soldiers in danger. Attorneys for Bergdahl, who is charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, will get to present their own evidence and call witnesses on Friday. His lead attorney, Eugene Fidell, said after Thursday’s proceedings that he would call four witnesses, though he declined to say if Bergdahl would be one of them. “Tomorrow it’s our turn at bat,” Fidell said. On Thursday, it was military prosecutors who got to make their case against Bergdahl, and they focused on trying to substantiate the misbehavior charge, which carries a possible life sentence and which would require them to prove that Bergdahl’s actions put other soldiers in harm’s way. Capt. John Billings, who led Bergdahl’s platoon, described the 45-day search for the Idaho native as grueling, saying soldiers got little food or sleep and endured temperatures in the high 90s. “Physically, mentally, I was defeated,” Billings said, adding that he felt like he had “failed” his men. His company commander, Maj. Silvino Silvino, said some of the thousands of soldiers who took part in the search were angry about it because they felt Bergdahl had deserted. Finally, Bergdahl’s battalion commander, Col. Clinton Baker, said that although no soldiers died as part of the search, there was a spike in improvised explosive device attacks because soldiers were going to places they ordinarily wouldn’t have gone. He also said he had to put counterinsurgency eforts on hold due to the search and that it hurt partnerships with the Afghan government and Afghan forces. Bergdahl spent five years as a Taliban captive until he was exchanged last year for five Taliban commanders who

Utah lood victim is found • Rescuers traversed a 100foot drop into a rugged section of Zion National Park on Thursday to ind the last of seven hikers killed when fastmoving loods rushed through a narrow Utah canyon. He was not identiied. The body was found a few miles from the sandstone gorge where the group of California and Nevada residents got trapped during a violent rainstorm, in an area that had been unreachable previously amid fears of more looding, park spokesman David Eaker said. The rest of the victims, all in their 40s and 50s, were found earlier this week. California wildires kill 2 more • Two more bodies were found in the burned ruins of homes in California, bringing the death toll to ive from two of the most destructive wildires in the state in recent memory. Both ires continued burning Thursday, but cooler weather and rain helped ireighters gain ground on the blazes that have destroyed more than 800 homes. Oicial identiications have not yet been made, but the sherif’s oice said the two bodies found in Lake County were presumed to be those of Bruce Beven Burns and former San Jose Mercury News reporter Leonard Neft. Friend of alleged church shooter is arrested • A friend of the alleged Charleston, S.C., church shooter was arrested Thursday, more than a month after authorities told him he was under federal investigation for lying to them and failing to report a crime, an oicial close to the probe said. Joey Meek, 21, was arrested Thursday, the oicial told The Associated Press, speaking on the condition of anonymity. The oicial didn’t immediately say what charges Meek faces. Meek has said that Dylann Roof, who is accused of killing nine black church members during Bible study on June 17, stayed with him before the shootings. Meek told The Associated Press that Roof had drunkenly complained that “blacks were taking over the world” and “someone needed to do something about it for the white race.” Meek said he called authorities after recognizing Roof from surveillance footage from the church. But, according to a federal law enforcement oicial, authorities believe Meek was dishonest with them during their investigation.

were being held at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Bergdahl spent much of Thursday’s hearing taking notes and conferring with his attorneys. Wearing his blue and black dress uniform, he answered, “Yes sir, I do,” when asked whether he understood the charges Bergdahl by the oicer presiding over the hearing. Before disappearing, Bergdahl had expressed opposition to the war in general and misgivings about his own role in it. Military prosecutor Maj. Margaret Kurz said Thursday that Bergdahl had actually been planning for weeks to abandon the post and had emailed friends and family about his plans beforehand. “Under the cover of darkness, he snuck of the post,” Kurz told the courtroom. Legal experts said they expected Bergdahl’s lawyers to argue that he sufered enough during his years in captivity. After the hearing wrapped up for the day, Fidell repeated his call for the military to make public Bergdahl’s interview with military investigators after the prisoner exchange, saying it would help counteract the negative publicity Bergdahl has faced. He declined to discuss his strategy or to say whether Bergdahl’s mental health history would play a role. Under questioning by one of Bergdahl’s attorneys Thursday, both Billings and Silvino said Bergdahl had been a model soldier until he disappeared. Both also said they weren’t aware of Bergdahl’s mental health history, including his psychological discharge from the Coast Guard and that an Army psychiatric board had concluded that Bergdahl possessed “severe mental defect.” If Bergdahl is eventually convicted of the misbehavior charge, he could face up to life in a military prison. He could also be dishonorably discharged, reduced in rank and made to forfeit all pay. The Article 32 hearing will result in a report that will be forwarded to Gen. Robert Abrams, the commanding general of Army Forces Command. Abrams will decide whether the case should be referred to a court-martial or is resolved in another manner.

Full-size work still on display at post oice MURALS • FROM A1

of the post oice. Much was at stake. The winning entry would receive $29,000, the largest payout to date for federally funded mural projects, common at that time for post offices. In today’s dollars, that’s more than $497,000. By comparison, Missouri paid Thomas Hart Benton $16,000 four years earlier to paint the now-famous murals in the state Capitol in Jeferson City. Millman and Siporin were among 215 artists competing. After nearly a week of reviewing the entries, the four-man jury agreed that the nine oil tempera on panel by the two Chicago men would represent the best fit for downtown’s mammoth new post oice, built at a cost of $4.5 million and amid much fanfare. In September 1936, more than 2,700 postal employees paraded downtown for a cornerstone ceremony. “The designs for the murals for the post office are in splendid scale with the architectural treatment of the lobby and in harmony with its color,” said Walter L. Rathmann, a St. Louis architect who designed the building and was a jury member, in a Post-Dispatch article from Sept. 16, 1939. The art collector who called the Kodner gallery in early August had the five panels that Millman made, as well as a sketchbook he used for note taking and pencil drawings. Also included were photos Millman and Siporin used to help create the subjects in their murals. “I told him I was interested and if he would send them to me for examination and I could determine that they were authentic and in good condition, I would buy them,” Kodner said. “They were quite a jaw-dropper when we saw them. They are just really considered a needle in a haystack.” It was assumed, Kodner said, that after 80 years, the panels had been lost or destroyed. Or that they had been separated and ended up with various owners. The collector, who wants to remain anonymous, told Kodner that he acquired the panels from Millman’s widow and did not have an interest in holding on to them. “I don’t think there was that appreciation for them,” Kodner said. Kodner referred to them as priceless, but as an art dealer, he knows a value has to eventually be determined.

A man walks past the murals in the main post oice downtown on Thursday. In 1939, Chicago artists Edward Millman and Mitchell Siporin won a nationwide contest to paint a series of murals at the post oice, on Market Street in St. Louis.

Customers at the main post oice, 1720 Market Street, observe the mural work underway in April 1942.

“It’s tough to hang your hat on it, but if we had to hang our hat on it, $250,000 is in the ballpark,” he said. Kodner put the panels in frames and under protective glass. The panels measure 5½ inches tall and 15¼ inches wide. By comparison, the murals are 29 feet wide by 9 feet high. They

still adorn the post office lobby downtown, high above the customer service windows. The murals caught the attention of Life magazine, which featured the paintings in its Oct. 12, 1942, edition. “America knows Missouri for its mules, which are the stubbornest in the country, and for

Legislature overrides Nixon’s veto, cutting scholarships to DACA students AID • FROM A1

the U.S. as young children by undocumented parents. They have legal permission to stay in the country under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program, or DACA. College leaders across the state predicted the new rule would leave dozens and possibly hundreds of students in limbo — leading high school seniors not to pursue college and causing those already in school to drop out. But until this week, there was a glimmer of hope for the subset of undocumented students planning on attending community college. When legislators passed Senate Bill 224 barring them from receiving the state’s A+ Scholarship, Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed it. On Wednesday night, lawmakers voted to override Nixon’s veto, meaning undocumented students who’d met the requirements — maintained a 2.5 grade-point average, had a 95 percent high school attendance record and completed 50 hours of unpaid mentoring and tutoring — would no longer have their tuition and fees covered by the state. The vote was 24-8 in the Senate and 11437 in the House. The override was met Thursday with bitter disappointment in some corners of the state and a sense of satisfaction in others. “I’m glad we were able to get this over with and taken care of,” said Sen. Gary Romine, RFarmington. “The main thing was to preserve and protect Missouri resources for Missouri residents.” The A+ program had run into financial diiculty lately as the cost of college has increased along with the number of students who meet the scholarship’s requirements. Lawmakers were able to increase funding for the program by $2 million to $35 million recently, but it’s unclear if that will be enough to cover all participants. Romine, who said he was the first in his family to go to college, said he has nothing against undocumented immigrants. “I’ve got a lot of rural students from tough areas (in my district) that can’t afford college,” Romine said. “I know what that’s like. We’ve got to take care of our own.” While a number of college leaders have said the state should be doing more, not less, to create opportunities for students to go to college, several have declined to speak out publicly because they did not want to be seen as criticizing lawmakers.

Faith Sandler, executive director of the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis, described the Legislature’s decision as tragic. “This state really stands out in its approach,” she said. “I don’t know what it will take to convince lawmakers it’s in the best interest of the state to change their approach.” At least 20 other states extend some benefits, including in-state tuition, to undocumented students. Other states are considering extending financial relief to DACA students. Sandler, whose organization just received $200,000 in funding from national organizations as part of the “Invest in the Dream” initiative to support DACA students, said the Scholarship Foundation won’t be using any of that money at Missouri’s public colleges and universities. “Until they change their policies, we will work to fund educational opportunities in nearby states or at private institutions that welcome and support (DACA students),” she said. “We won’t use precious funding to subsidize bad policies.” The full efect of the ban of A+ Scholarships for DACA students won’t be felt immediately. Students who participated during the summer and are enrolled this fall are eligible for the awards for a final semester, provided their school submits a request for a reimbursement to the state by Oct. 16, when the new law takes efect. At St. Louis Community College, undocumented students may get even more relief. Chancellor Jef Pittman said Thursday that administrators have set aside $250,000 in private funds for undocumented students this year. He said he will continue to look for more funds to help students in subsequent years. Currently, there are roughly 50 undocumented students at the community college who will be eligible for the private funding provided they meet the same benchmarks required under the A+ program. “First of all, we will abide by the law,” Pittman said. “But we very much understand the hardships students who want to attend college are facing. We are an open access institution. We want to make education possible for people.” Koran Addo • 314-340-8305 @KoranAddo on Twitter kaddo@post-dispatch.com

its hound dogs, which may be the smartest in the country, and for its corncob pipes, which are practically the only ones made in the country,” the article began. “But America does not know Missouri for its history.” That, the article said, can be resolved by looking at the murals at the St. Louis post oice. The five fresco paintings on the south side of the lobby were created by Millman, the four on the north by Siporin. They include French explorers coming down the Mississippi River looking for gold and silver, instead finding lead that they began to mine at Ste. Genevieve around 1750. The history lesson features Pierre Laclede, the founder of St. Louis, and continues through the Civil War and Reconstruction. Millman and Siporin began painting the murals in the fall of 1941, finishing the next summer. Assisting was Millman’s wife, Norma, and plasterer Peter Heskes. During their time in St. Louis, the artists shared an apartment at 4515 Maryland Avenue, in the city’s Central West End. A barbecue held to celebrate completion of the murals in June

1942 was rained out. After the project, both men served in the military, and Millman returned briefly to St. Louis to teach art at Washington University. He died in 1964 at the age of 57. “Mr. Millman, a short, darkhaired man who looked younger than he was, avoided the Bohemian stereotype by buying his clothes in the youth department of Brooks Brothers,” reads his obituary from the New York Times. He studied fresco painting with Diego Rivera and painted a series of murals for the Chicago World’s Fair of 1933. He also did murals for the post offices in Moline and Decatur, Ill., and the Chicago City Hall, the newspaper wrote. Siporin died 12 years later, at the age of 66. The whereabouts of the four panels he painted, which included such notable figures as Mark Twain, Daniel Boone and publisher Joseph Pulitzer are unknown, Kodner said. But if they still exist, Kodner will be by the phone. Doug Moore • 314-340-8125 @dougwmoore on Twitter dmoore@post-dispatch.com

GM will pay $900 million to settle inquiry over faulty switches GM • FROM A1

engineering staffs concealed the problem for nearly a decade, no employees were charged Thursday, though U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said the investigation is continuing. Also Thursday, GM announced it will spend $575 million to settle the majority of the civil lawsuits filed over the scandal. Under the deal with prosecutors, an independent monitor will be appointed to oversee GM’s handling of safety problems. Two charges drawn up against GM — wire fraud and scheming to conceal information from government regulators — will be dropped after three years if the automaker cooperates fully. GM agreed to a statement of facts that describes in scathing terms its deceptive and dismissive approach to the defect. “They let the public down,” Bharara said. “They didn’t tell the truth in the best way that they should have — to the regulators, to the public — about this serious safety issue that risked life and limb.” The twin agreements bring to more than $5.3 billion the amount GM has spent on a problem authorities say could have been handled for less than a dollar per car. Those expenses include fines, compensation for victims and the recall of millions of vehicles. The settlement brought bitter criticism from safety advocates and family members. Consumer advocate Clarence Ditlow, head of the nonprofit Center for Auto Safety, said GM officials will “walk of scot-free while its customers are 6 feet under.” Laura Christian, the mother of a woman who died in her 2005 Cobalt, said, “If a person kills someone because he decided to drive drunk, he will go to jail,” yet GM employees whose decisions led to scores of deaths “are able to hide behind a corporation because our laws are insufficient. It must change.” Bharara said there is no law with specific criminal penalties for failing

to disclose auto safety problems. The Justice Department has been long been criticized for often going after companies instead of individuals in cases of wrongdoing in the business world. In this case, court papers showed that GM engineers knew of the problem in 2004 and 2005 when other employees, the media and customers complained. But the engineers left it alone, rejecting a cheap and simple fix, court papers said. Even after the dangers became plain in 2012, GM did not correct its earlier assurance that the switch posed no safety concern. Instead, Bharara wrote, it concealed the defect from regulators and the public “so that the company could buy time to package, present, explain and manage the issue.” The wire fraud count pertained to the company’s assurances to customers over the Internet in 2012-13 that its used cars were safe. Last year, GM recalled 2.6 million older small cars worldwide, including the Chevrolet Cobalt and Saturn Ion, to replace the faulty switches. When they slip out of “run,” the engines shut of and the power-assisted steering, power brakes and the air bags are disabled. Some cars ran off the road or collided with other vehicles. Last year, GM set up a fund to compensate victims. Lawyers administering it accepted 124 death claims and 275 injury claims. Families of those who died will get at least $1 million. GM has set aside $625 million to compensate people who settled with the fund. Texas attorney Bob Hilliard represents 1,385 plaintiffs with death or injury claims who decided not to seek compensation from the fund. On Thursday, GM said it has agreed to spend $575 million to settle those cases, as well as a shareholder lawsuit that said GM’s actions reduced the value of its stock. Even with the settlements, GM cannot close the books on the scandal. It still faces more than 400 death and injury cases that have yet to be settled.

Croatia puts its army on alert Dozens are injured in chaos as thousands of migrants descend on country BY DUSAN STOJANOVIC AND VANESSA GERA associated Press

BATINA, CROATIA • Croa-

tian leaders put the army on alert after chaos erupted Thursday on the border with Serbia, where thousands of asylum-seekers poured into the country, some trampling each other in a rush to get on the few available buses and trains. Dozens were injured in the mayhem. The masses descended on Croatia after Hungary erected a barbed-wire fence and took other tough measures to stop them from using it as a gateway into Western Europe. As Hungarian officials hailed their success in putting a halt to the influx and moved ahead with plans to build more border fences, leaders in Croatia pleaded that their country was at full capacity and unable to cope with waves of people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and Africa. Croatian Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic said he had a message for migrants: Don’t try to go to Western Europe through his country. “Don’t come here anymore. Stay in refugee centers in Serbia and Macedonia and Greece,” Ostojic told reporters. “This is not the road to Europe. Buses can’t take you there. It’s a lie.” Hungary sealed of its border with Serbia this week with

a razor-wire fence and began arresting people who tried to cross. Police used tear gas, batons and water cannons on those who tried to push open a border gate on Wednesday. Croatia represents a longer and more difficult route into Europe, but those fleeing violence in their homelands had little choice. By late Thursday, 9,200 people had entered the country in just 48 hours, police said, and other groups were trying to cross into neighboring Slovenia and Hungary. Slovenia, like Hungary, appeared unwilling to take in the inflow, with Slovenian police saying those arriving from Croatia would simply be sent back there, according to the

country’s state news agency. Croatian President Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic called on the military to be on higher alert and to act if needed to protect the border from the migrants. Ostojic, the interior minister, meanwhile, suggested Croatia might close its borders if faced with thousands more newcomers. After bus trips through Serbia, many migrants crossed fields on foot to enter Croatia, where dozens of police at first directed them to trains and buses heading to refugee centers. Soon matters got out of control. Hundreds of angry asylum seekers pushed through police lines in the eastern Croatian town of Tovarnik after wait-

ing for hours in the hot sun, demanding to be allowed to move on toward Western Europe. More than 2,000 people had been stuck at the train station for hours. When buses finally arrived, groups charged toward them, overwhelming Croatian police. As an EU member state, Croatia is required to register the asylum seekers. But almost all are trying to reach Germany or elsewhere in Western Europe and want to move through quickly without a paper trail. Some migrants opted for a detour, trying to cross from Croatia into Hungary along a stretch of open border that has no fence. That move did not prove very successful: Dozens were detained near the Hungarian village of Illocska, Hungarian state media reported. The European Union’s migration commissioner, Dimitris Avramopoulos, declared Thursday that walls and violence are no solution and urged Hungary to work with the 28-nation bloc to alleviate the crisis. “The majority of people arriving in Europe are Syrians,” Avramopoulos said at a news conference in Budapest. “They are people in genuine need of our protection. There is no wall you would not climb, no sea you wouldn’t cross if you are fleeing violence and terror. I believe we have a moral duty (to) ofer them protection.”

Chile’s experience prepared country for major quake, lessened the losses Strong temblor ofshore triggers tsunami warnings, but fortiied buildings held BY LUIS ANDRES HENAO AND EVA VERGARA associated Press

COQUIMBO, CHILE • Parts of this port city were a disaster zone Thursday after an magnitude-8.3 quake hit off the coast, killing at least 11 people and likely causing billions in damage. Overturned cars and splintered boats sat in mud next to furniture, toppled adobe homes and fishing nets tangled in trees. The most stunning thing about Wednesday night’s earthquake, however, may be the relatively low amount of havoc caused by such a powerful shake. While the quake forced more than 1 million to evacuate coastal areas and no doubt caused much anxiety, seismologists said Chile’s heavy investment in structural reinforcement of buildings and constant refinement of its tsunami alert system helped prevent what would have been a catastrophe in less prepared nations. “Chile has good codes and good compliance, which together have reduced the vulnerabilities of their building stock over the decades,” said Richard Olson, director of Florida International University’s Extreme Events Institute. “I would rather be there in one of their cities than in many other countries in an earthquake.” Living in one of the world’s most seismically active places, the Andean nation’s 17 million people have little choice but become experts in earthquakes. The strongest earthquake ever recorded happened in Chile: a magnitude-9.5 tremor in 1960 that killed

DIGEST Mexico captures man suspected in students’ deaths Federal authorities in Mexico captured a suspected high-ranking drug cartel member who has been implicated in last year’s disappearance of 43 college students in the southern state of Guerrero, oicials said Thursday. State prosecutor Miguel Angel Godinez Munoz announced the arrest of Gildardo Lopez Astudillo. National Security Commissioner Renato Sales called Lopez Astudillo, 36, the “intellectual author” of the students’ disappearance. He was arrested Wednesday in the city of Taxco and is suspected of involvement in drug distribution, extortion and organized crime. Corporate political inancing banned in Brazil • Brazil’s Supreme Court on Thursday banned corporate contributions to political campaigns and parties, a hot issue as investigators in the nation’s biggest corruption scandal say such inancing was used by businesses to win lucrative contracts with state-run oil company Petrobras. The court ruled 8-3 to block such campaign inancing — which in the most recent presidential elections represented well over 90 percent of the funding for leading candidates and eventual presidents. “The inluence of economic power culminates by turning the electoral process into a political game of marked cards, an odious pantomime that turns the voter into a puppet, crumbling in one blow citizenship and democracy,” said Justice Rosa Weber in voting to strike down the inancing. Despite the ruling, the top court’s action may not be the inal say on the matter. Brazil’s Congress last week passed a campaign inancing measure that would allow corporations to make donations, albeit in smaller amounts. 9 killed in Nicaraguan land conlicts • Land conlicts between settlers and Miskito Indians on Nicaragua’s Atlantic coast have left at least nine people dead this month and 20 wounded. Indians have armed themselves and are seeking to expel the settlers, who are drawn in part by the area’s rich tropical hardwood forests. The latest death was that of Yatama Indian community leader Mario Lemans. Hundreds of Indians gathered Thursday in the coast’s main city, Puerto Cabezas, in preparation for his funeral. Police say the Indians have burned some settlers’ homes. The Indians say police stationed in the area have shot at them. Student anarchists attack police in Greece • Greek police say scores of anarchists have attacked police with gasoline bombs outside a central Athens precinct, and one oicer was injured in ensuing scules. About 150 youths took part in the attack late Thursday, police said. They said about 20 gasoline bombs were thrown at police outside the precinct, and police responded with stun grenades and tear gas. Seven people were detained on suspicion of taking part in the attack. One car parked near the precinct was damaged.

more than 5,000 people. After another major earthquake in 1985, authorities began implementing strict construction codes similar to those used for highly seismic regions in the United States such as California, said Kishor Jaiswal, a civil engineer with the U.S. Geological Survey. Most buildings in urban areas of Chile are designed to withstand both the vertical forces of gravity and the horizontal jolts that an earthquake inflicts. Building methods in many other developing countries can withstand gravity and wind but have limited resistance against very strong earthquakes. Wednesday’s quake struck just offshore in the Pacific at 7:54 p.m. and was centered

about 141 miles north-northwest of Santiago. The quake was 7.4 miles below the surface. It lasted a nerve-shattering three minutes, swayed buildings in the capital, Santiago, and prompting authorities to issue a tsunami warning for the country’s entire Pacific coast. People sought safety in the streets of inland cities, while others along the shore took to their cars to race to higher ground. Several coastal towns were flooded from small tsunami waves. The fortified constructions were evident in Coquimbo, a port city that was one of the closest to the epicenter. While adobe houses and some small concrete structures collapsed, the vast majority of buildings

were intact. A small area of the city, which neighbors La Serena, was covered in mud left by inrushing waves. Boats and cars were overturned, and dead fish were mixed in with debris. “It looks like a war zone here,” said Marcelo Leyea, a mechanic carrying a dufel bag with tools he was able to salvage from his collapsed shop. “But we were more prepared than during the 2010 earthquake.” Even fortified infrastructure didn’t prevent a high death toll in 2010, when a magnitude-8.8 quake in south-central Chile killed more than 500 people, destroyed 220,000 homes and washed away docks, riverfronts and seaside resorts.

Romanian prime minister indicted • Romanian prosecutors on Thursday formally indicted Prime Minister Victor Ponta on corruption charges, including tax evasion and money-laundering, and said he will be tried by the country’s top court. Ponta won’t be arrested, Livia Sapalcan, the spokeswoman for the anticorruption prosecutors’ oice told The Associated Press. Ponta, 42, denies wrongdoing and has refused to resign, saying he wants to remain prime minister until the December 2016 parliamentary election. 133 blamed in Indonesian forest ires • Indonesian police said Thursday they have identiied seven companies and 133 individuals suspected of causing forest ires that are spreading choking smoke and polluted air across parts of western Indonesia and neighboring Malaysia and Singapore. National Police spokesman Col. Suharsono said 27 more companies and 85 individuals are still under investigation by police in six provinces in Sumatra and Kalimantan on the Indonesian part of Borneo.

Military in Burkina Faso conirms coup BY BRAHIMA OUEDRAOGO AND BABA AHMED associated Press

OUAGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO •

Burkina’s military seized the airwaves and installed a general loyal to the ex-president Thursday as the new head of state, carrying out a coup weeks before national elections. The developments capped a dramatic year in this West African country where President Blaise Compaore was ousted in a popular uprising last October after he tried to prolong his 27-year rule. That paved the way for the formation of a transitional government, but soldiers arrested the interim president and prime minister late Wednesday. The political unrest sparked violence in the streets, and the presidential guard opened fire with live ammunition to dis-

perse crowds protesting the coup, witnesses said late Wednesday. Associated Press journalists saw the bodies of at least six victims at a morgue in the capital, Ouagadougou, on Thursday. Members of the presidential guard wandered about the city in pickups and on motorcycles seeking to disperse any gatherings late Thursday. Burkina Faso’s land and air borders were closed and a 7 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew was imposed. The coup — the country’s sixth since it won independence from France in 1960 — unfolded overnight with stunning speed. A communique read on state TV and radio early Thursday by an army lieutenant colonel wearing a camouflage uniform criticized the electoral code, which blocked members of Compaore’s party from taking part in the Oct. 11 elections.

A child plays in the sprinklers of Seward Park in New York as temperatures soared in August. This past summer smashed global records for heat.

BY SETH BORENSTEIN Associated Press

WASHINGTON • Earth’s record-breaking

heat is sounding an awful lot like a broken record. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday that August, this past summer and the first eight months of 2015 all smashed global records for heat. That’s the fifth straight record hot season in a row and the fourth consecutive record hot month. Meteorologists say 2015 is a near certainty to eclipse 2014 as the hottest year on record. This year, six of the eight months have been record breaking, with only April and January failing to set new records. Since 2000, Earth has broken monthly heat records 30 times and seasonal heat records 11 times. The last time a monthly cold record was broken was in 1916. Records date to 1880. “For scientists, these are just a few more data points in an increasingly long list of broken records (that) is due to warming temperatures,” Texas Tech climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe said in an email. “As individuals, though, this is yet another reminder of the impact our unprecedented and inadvertent experiment — an experiment that began with the Industrial Revolution — is having on our planet today.” Scientists blame a combination of human-caused climate change and natural El Niño, a warming of the equatorial Pacific

Ocean that changes weather worldwide. Global warming is like the steady climbing of stairs, and then El Niño “is like standing on your tippy toes” while climbing those stairs, said Deke Arndt, global monitoring chief for NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information. August’s global temperature average was 61.7 degrees, breaking the previous record, set last year, by a sixth of a degree. The summer average temperature broke the previous record from last year by a fifth of a degree. Those are “relatively large jumps over the last record” in the world of climate monitoring, Arndt said. NOAA calculates that there is a 97 percent chance that 2015 will break 2014’s hottest year mark, but that was before August was factored in. August makes that even more likely, Arndt said. With the El Niño, NOAA forecasts an unusually warm fall for the eastern, western and northern parts of the nation, as well as Alaska, with New Mexico and half of Texas forecast to be cooler than normal. The southern two-thirds of the nation, and parts of Alaska, should be wetter than normal this fall, with New England and the Pacific Northwest forecast to be on the dry side, NOAA forecast. NOAA’s preliminary winter forecast predicts warmer than normal temperatures for north of the Mason-Dixon line, the West Coast and Alaska. It calls for cooler than normal temperatures from New Mexico to South Carolina. Wetter weather is forecast for the winter for nearly all the U.S. coastal regions.

WA S H I N G T O N • The

United States and Cuba should be able to transform their new diplomatic relationship into a deeper commercial partnership before the end of the year, with direct postal service to begin and an agreement on regularly scheduled commercial flights between the two countries, an American oicial said. Washington also plans to publish new regulations soon making it easier for U.S. citizens to visit the island and do business with its growing ranks of independent entrepreneurs. The official, who is familiar with the diplomacy, described significant progress in U.S.-Cuban discussions since the former Cold War foes reopened embassies in their respective countries in July. At a meeting in Havana last week, delegations from each side established a plan to settle a half-century of economic and legal disputes within the next 15 months. While difficult questions related to human rights and compensation claims won’t be resolved immediately, the official said first steps toward a broader normalization of ties would come quickly. First, the administration of President Barack Obama intends to move on its own in the coming days by releasing a new set of rules designed to loosen the U.S. economic embargo on Cuba, said the oicial, who demanded anonymity. The goal is to pick up where Obama left off in January, when he eased economic restrictions on Cuba in potentially the most dramatic manner

since relations between the countries broke down in 1959. The action sought to cut red tape for U.S. travel to Cuba, permit American companies to export telephones, computers and Internet technology, and allow U.S. firms to send supplies to private Cuban enterprises. The new U.S. rules should help cut through some bureaucratic hurdles, the oicial said. Only Congress can end the embargo, and much of the foreseen expansion of U.S.-Cuban economic ties rests on the cooperation of the island’s communist government. The U.S.-Cuban political track moved ahead Thursday as new ambassador Jose Ramon Cabanas Rodriguez presented his credentials to Obama at a White House ceremony. The pair briefly spoke, according to a Cuban embassy statement. Meanwhile, Verizon joined online home renter Airbnb as the second major U.S. company to begin operations in Cuba since the declaration of détente. American travelers can buy pay-as-you-go plans that cost $2.99 per minute for voice calls and $2.05 per megabyte of data. The costs are high, but similar to those offered by non-U.S. companies for voice calls in Cuba and cheaper than average for data roaming. Washington and Havana are slated to begin a “pilot program” allowing Cubans and Americans to send mail directly to one another, the official said. Direct mail service was halted in 1963, though letters and packages travel back and forth through countries like Canada and Mexico.

Also, the U.S. and Cuba should finalize an agreement on resuming direct, commercial airline routes, though the first flights wouldn’t come until next year. Right now, American and Cuban travelers must fly on charter flights. U.S. and Cuban oicials hope to tackle their biggest differences by December 2016, before Obama leaves oice, the oicial said. The U.S. says Cuba must make significant democratic reforms, allowing greater space for opposition political voices and civil society movements. The fate of U.S. and Cuban fugitives beyond the reach of law enforcement authorities at home remains an outstanding issue. And each side has billions of dollars in compensation claims against the other, perhaps the biggest hindrance to the resumption of any “normal” U.S.Cuban relationship.

Fiorina looks to capitalize on showing After strong debate, businesswoman says she demonstrated she’s ‘most qualiied’ ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON • Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina finds herself in a position to build on a strong debate performance for the second time in six weeks, enjoying glowing reviews for demonstrating a command of policy details while taking on front-runner Donald Trump. “I successfully introduced myself to those who did not know me and demonstrated once again that I am the most qualified candidate on that stage to win this job and to do this job,” Fiorina told NBC News Thursday, less than eight hours after the conclusion of the debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California. Fiorina offered forceful answers Wednesday night on U.S. relations with Russia and funding for women’s health and abortion provider Planned Parenthood, among other topics. Fiorina dared Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama to watch controversial undercover Planned Parenthood videos prepared by an anti-abortion group. “Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain,” she said. But as The Washington Post Fact Checker noted, no such video has surfaced showing the scene Fiorina described. One of her standout moments came when she dismissed Trump’s previous criticism of her appearance. “Donald Trump says many things, and we all have to live with what we’ve said,” she said Thursday. She added that “women are, still, caricatured and scrutinized and criticized differently” from men. “Women deal with that every day, and so I think women understood.” Trump, for his part, told NBC separately Thursday that “Carly did well,” though he said he didn’t think the lengthy session had a singular standout. Unlike Fiorina, Trump ofered little of substance in his answers.

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina speaks during the CNN Republican presidential debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum on Wednesday in Simi Valley, Calif.

the most of his time by targeting Trump and Fiorina for focusing on their business records. “No whining and moaning from this camp,” he told MSNBC on Thursday morning. “You don’t win in politics by whining and moaning and complaining.” Fiorina faces increasing focus on her own record, with new attention on her rocky tenure at Hewlett-Packard, where she was ultimately fired. Mostly repeating the answer she offered Wednesday, Fiorina told NBC that the experience was not a liability. Other candidates, including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, also spoke forcefully against abortion rights and Planned Parenthood funding. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, maintained a positive outlook throughout the night in keeping with his image as the GOP’s most likable candidate. Having surged in recent polls, he earned far more air time during the crowded debate than he did in the first event last month, but when given the opportunity, he offered few specifics on major issues such as immigration and national security. “Real leadership is what I would hopefully bring to America,” Carson said in a tentative closing statement.

THE MORNING AFTER with him,” Paul said in an interview on Fox News. “The debate is really going to reshuffle the pack.” Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who was more aggressive against Trump than during the first debate in August, said he was pleased with his performance. “I’m not a Trumpian; I can’t figure the guy out,” Bush told NBC in a taped interview broadcast Thursday morning. “I took him on … and I’ll keep doing it. … I’ll fight back.” While New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie got far less time in the debate than the front-runners, speaking for a little more than 11 minutes during the three-hour session, he attempted to make

“I consider climate change to be not one of our big problems,” Trump said Thursday, when asked about the debate’s concluding exchange on global warming. “There could be some man-made something,” he added. Trump faced a series of attacks from his onstage rivals, who were eager to try and bring his numbers down after watching the billionaire businessman rise in the polls. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who assailed Trump’s temperament during the debate, said voters are getting tired of Trump’s “silliness” and “sophomoric kind of jabs.” “I think America is about done

Propelled by her standout debate performance, Fiorina sought on Thursday to turn accolades for her crisp, confident showing into actual support from voters and donors. It’s a quest that will determine whether her breakthrough moment is a turning point in the Republican primary or simply a footnote. After a few hours of sleep, Fiorina blitzed through six morning-show interviews, an on-air victory lap of sorts. In early voting states, her small staf fielded calls from local oicials eager to pledge their support. “After last night, I’m with Carly Fiorina,” said Bryan Gould, a New Hampshire lawyer who was among those reaching out

to Fiorina’s team. Gould had also been considering Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas, or Carson, but he said Fiorina displayed the maturity he’s been looking for in a candidate. Fiorina’s Iowa chairman Christopher Rants spent the day trying to make sure the candidate’s upcoming events in the state had space for bigger crowds. “We wanted to hold 150 people, better make sure it holds 200 — maybe more,” he said.

FACT CHECKING The debate laid bare unsupported claims about vaccines and abortion practices as well as inconsistencies and misrepresentations about foreign policy: • Trump alleged a link between vaccines and autism that scientists have debunked, while several other candidates hedged. That prompted the American Academy of Pediatrics to release a statement Thursday emphasizing the safety and value of vaccines and asserting it is “dangerous to public health” to make such “false statements.” • Bush suggested that U.S. relations with other countries are worse everywhere under Obama. Relations have improved with Western Europe, a key allied bloc, since his brother George W. Bush was president, and Obama has forged closer ties with some countries in southeast Asia as well as with Cuba. • Walker complained that U.S. troops opposing Islamic State militants are constrained by “political restrictions” in Washington that he would lift. But decisions on the deployment of U.S. troops, including their numbers and what they do, are ultimately the responsibility of the president, who takes into account a range of factors not limited to the advice he receives from his military commanders. It is a bedrock principle of the U.S. system of government that the armed forces are under civilian control. The Washington Post contributed to this report.

PREGNANT WITH POSSIBILITIES Our view • he GOP’s unplanned budget dilemma. The Republican Party is in a quandary. Congressional conservatives are threatening to shut down the federal government rather than allow funding for Planned Parenthood to continue. The party’s mainstream leaders — though they also oppose abortion — don’t want to risk being blamed for that shutdown. Energize the right or alienate the majority? In advance of the 2016 presidential race, the divide is perilous for Republicans and the nation. It pits social conservatives against business conservatives. It’s many of the most far-right presidential contenders vs. the Wall Street Journal-backed GOP leaders. Conservative hostility toward Planned Parenthood and abortion soared this summer after secretly recorded videos showed Planned Parenthood officials appearing to discuss selling tissue from aborted fetuses for medical research. Officials at Missouri’s only Planned Parenthood office that performed abortions at the time, which is in St. Louis, say it doesn’t participate in fetal tissue research. The tapes energized efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and further restrain abortion access. Never mind that fetal tissue medical research is legal, has been going on for decades and is a potential boon to those suffering from chronic diseases. Those facts don’t count with those adamantly opposed to abortion. Instead, would-be conservative standard bearers at this week’s Republican presidential primary debate grandstanded, invoking alleged felonies, even though selectively edited tapes recorded by conservative activists show none being committed.

C-SPAN

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tried to shut down government in 2013 over Obamacare. Now he and his allies may try again, this time over federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

The GOP has until Sept. 30, when the federal budget year ends, to pass a continuing resolution continuing funding at current levels. An actual budget, of course, is out of the question. Republicans control both chambers of Congress, and leaders want to finesse outrage against Planned Parenthood into separate bills. One would narrow access to abortion without shutting down nonessential government offices; the other would fund government. That approach doesn’t satisfy conservatives. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, one of the presidential contenders on stage the other night, urges his allies to oppose any funding resolution that contains money

for Planned Parenthood, even if it risks another shutdown. They argue that Republicans must charge into battle as warriors wielding their moral convictions. Such cavalier behavior is nothing new for Mr. Cruz and other conservatives. In 2013, they did the same thing over Obamacare. In the real world — the one in which politics involves compromise, President Barack Obama still wields a veto pen and there are more than 40 Democratic supporters of abortion rights in the Senate. Mr. Cruz’s warriors wield only empty rhetoric. Worse for the GOP, a Quinnipiac poll at the end of August found 69 percent of the public opposed to a government shutdown

over Planned Parenthood, including 53 percent of Republicans. Shutdowns aggravate Americans, as they should. The nation has distressingly low expectations for politicians of both parties, but keeping the doors open for basic government services is one of them. The GOP can hope that its moral objections to abortion are enough to offset the wrath of thousands of workers sent home during a funding crisis, not to mention disruptions in everyday services to Americans. Based on past performance, though, that’s a bad bet. Planned Parenthood is a critical health care provider for many low- and moderate-income individuals. The majority of Planned Parenthood’s work helps prevent unwanted pregnancies and provides screening for sexually transmitted diseases. For that service, it receives nearly $530 million in federal, state and local funding, virtually none of which may be used for abortions. That latter service is just 3 percent of cases. Politically, however, Planned Parenthood is much more. It’s a lightning rod for conservatives, red meat for the base, the facts be damned. Clandestine videotapes, edited by abortion opponents, do not make a persuasive case against funding Planned Parenthood, much less for a shutdown. If Congress uses such questionable evidence as a rationale to disrupt much of government, Oct. 1 will be a raw reminder that compromise is nearing extinction. The GOP has precious few days left to marshal its members into a reasonable alliance for continued government funding.

YOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Stadium site an example of disregard for cultural value of land

Most Illinois delegates are on board to fight global hunger

The commentary “Plan for stadium site should honor American Indian values” (Sept. 10) brings to light historic, cultural and sacred significance of land under the planned NFL stadium site. The authors alert us to an important concern too often ignored in the rush for development. Their studies indicate historic and archaeological evidence of sacred Osage burial sites and a pre-Columbian mound civilization similar to Cahokia Mounds in Illinois. Such disregard for the historic and cultural value of land represents a significant pattern in the pursuit of development and resource extraction around the world, from deforestation in the Amazon rain forest to the desecration of a “protected” culturally significant Arizona mountain area simply to build a ski resort that must pipe in treated sewage water to create artificial snow. In the upper Great Lakes region from Michigan to Minnesota, mining projects have been proposed that will destroy sacred waterways and threaten fragile ecosystems, water quality, and food security for Native American and other communities. Recently, large numbers of indigenous and local residents in the afected areas have raised their voices but are rarely heard. With complete disregard for historic, cultural and sustainability factors, deregulation and court rulings are allowing such destructive plans to move forward. In 2014 a lecture on the rise and fall of the Cahokia Mounds civilization highlighted a stark irony. As we heard reasons for the decline such as over-exploitation of natural resources, monoculture agriculture and soil depletion, and social hierarchies with walls to keep “the others” out, it was impossible to ignore the many parallels between the demise of a highly developed pre-Columbian people and today’s worldwide crises of climate and spirit. History holds many critical lessons, but it seems we as a people pay them little attention. Betsy Slosar • Edwardsville

I was so happy to read the commentary “Missouri can help feed the world” (Sept. 15). I am proud of U.S. actions to help small farmers in poor countries improve their yields and feed their own people, contributing to the ongoing decline in global hunger. I want to add my thanks to Illinois congressional delegates who have co-sponsored the Global Food Security Act, including Reps. Rodney Davis, John Shimkus and Michael Bost. Thanks also to Sen. Dick Durbin. Now if only Sen. Mark Kirk would join in supporting this bill! Jane Klopfenstein • Edwardsville

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at a campaign event in July in New York.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush gestures as he speaks in April during a Dallas Council of World Afairs luncheon.

Shouldn’t allow another Bush vs. Clinton election

president should be barred from running. Current and former spouses along with their families would also be disqualified. A case could also be made for extending this rule to members of Congress and federal judges. How far away to draw the line of relation would certainly be up for debate, but I think we can all agree that a former president’s wife and another former president’s brother should both be barred from holding the highest office of this nation. Our lawmakers should fix this unfortunate oversight. The United States or any country for that matter would be better off without political dynasties. Thomas Hayes • O’Fallon, Mo.

Despite all of the so-called upsets with the current presidential race this summer, I am still convinced that we will end up with another Bush vs. Clinton election. This is unfortunate and should not even be possible because both of those candidates ought to be ineligible. When Congress passed the 22nd Amendment that mandated the two-term limit for presidents, it should have went a step further and also put an anti-nepotism clause into the law. I would propose that anyone closer than a second cousin or great-greatgrandchild to a current or former

I am shocked at the ruling of the St. Louis County Police Board forbidding the use of dogs for crowd control (Sept. 18). I feel this action is to make our police look fuzzy and warm, but it is another step toward denying the officers a way to do their jobs without using a weapon. When was the last time you read that a dog was released into a crowd and allowed to attack? The dogs are very efective at keeping crowds at bay without actually harming anyone. The article states the dogs were used to protect the shooting scene as a crowd gathered, but created unnecessary fear and anger. The dogs were put away, but brought back out after gunfire erupted, being careful not to use them for crowd control. So why was this not acceptable? I am beginning to feel the police officers have no means of protecting us these days. What next? Perhaps their badges incite anger and fear and should be removed. Patricia Viamontes • St. Charles

hat burger lipper’s job matters as much as yours Minimum wage debate • Every job, and every person who does it, deserves respect. BY LARA GRANICH

LaToya Caldwell loves her job. She’s eager to tell you just how much. She recently told a room full of Kansas City reporters how she enjoys making people smile in the middle of their busy days. LaToya’s work at Wendy’s, she told the reporters, is deeply satisfying. The job gives her purpose. LaToya, who is active with the Stand Up KC fast-food organizing efforts, was asked recently why she didn’t get a new job. “I don’t want to be a nurse,” she responded. This sentiment is not unique to LaToya. Yet some people seem surprised that — for the most part — the men and women who work in jobs that happen to have low pay really love their work. LaToya’s work has dignity. Her work has value. I was raised by folks who taught me to value all work. My

parents encouraged me to go to college, but to never think I’m too good to empty trash cans, serve food or stock shelves. For years, I’ve had the privilege of working alongside restaurant servers when the Legislature tried to roll back wages for tipped employees, with fast-food employees organizing for the last two years in their high-profile efforts to fight for “$15 and a union,” and with home-care providers who recently secured important workplace protections. And it has deeply reinforced that every job, and every person who does it, deserves my respect. The employees’ value is shockingly unnoticed by some of our Board of Aldermen. During the minimum wage bill debate, Alderman Steve Conway said many times in opposing strengthening pay for our community members that “We don’t

need more burger flippers ... we don’t need store clerks.” Conway argued that individuals should seek out training for higherpaying, high-tech jobs instead of working for an increase in the city’s minimum wage. Alderman Conway is my neighbor, and we’ve worked together on other issues, but I couldn’t disagree more with him. First, and on the most basic factual level, we do need more so-called “burger flippers.” In fact, the occupation with the most job openings projected in the next eight years in the St. Louis region is food service prep. What is the second-highest number of predicted employment openings? Those same “store clerks” Conway called out as unimportant and unnecessary. With election season underway, we’ve been inundated with tales of politicians’ characterbuilding jobs in their youth — including burger flipping — before they got into politics. They want to relate to ordinary

folks through their stories in order to win our vote and convince us they know the value of hard work. Yet time and again, once they are elected, they flipflop on the burger flippers, not wanting to believe people who are poorly paid are hard-working and care about their work. And mind you, the ancient myth of a kid working to just “build character” isn’t real anymore — if it ever was. The average age of a fast-food clerk is 32. In the time I’ve spent working alongside fast-food, retail and other employees in low-wage industries, I’ve seen that the young people in those jobs also deserved a fair return on their hard work. They were helping support their families’ expenses, or saving for skyrocketing tuition costs. Remember, society used to say women didn’t need decent wages because someone else was taking care of us. Now they’re saying the same about young workers. The Economic Policy Institute

just updated its “Family Budget Calculator” for the St. Louis region. To make a modest, but stable living, a worker must make a full-time wage of $22 for one adult and one child. Right now, none of the top five occupations needed in our regional economy come anywhere close to this wage. That’s because a handful of handsomely paid corporate CEOs decided to invest in themselves, their shareholders and politicians — not the people who make their companies run. But our community can choose to reward all work and put families first. Our economy runs on every kind of work — from cleaning bathrooms to writing computer code. Those who do the work that keeps our region thriving also need to be able to take care of their loved ones and lead a decent life. So let’s recognize and value the dignity of all work and make sure it sustains our families. Lara Granich is the director of Missouri Jobs With Justice.

Putin’s gambit, Obama’s puzzlement Foreign policy • Russian leader’s objectives in Syria are obvious, except to Kerry and the president. CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER Washington Post

Once again, President Obama and his foreign policy team are stumped. Why is Vladimir Putin pouring troops and weaponry into Syria? After all, as Secretary of State John Kerry has thrice told his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, it is only making things worse. But worse for whom? For the additional thousands of civilians who will die or flee as a result of the inevitably intensified fighting. True, and I’m sure Lavrov is as moved by their plight as by the 8,000 killed in Russia’s splendid little Ukrainian adventure. Kerry and Obama are serially surprised because they cannot fathom the hard men in the Kremlin. Yet Putin’s objectives in Syria are blindingly obvious: 1. To assert Russia’s influence in the Middle East and make it the dominant outside power. Putin’s highest ambition is to avenge and reverse Russia’s humiliating loss of superpower status a quartercentury ago. Understanding this does not come easily to an American president who for seven years has been assiduously curating America’s decline abroad. 2. To sustain Russia’s major and long-standing Arab ally. Ever since Anwar Sadat kicked the Soviets out of Egypt in 1972, Syria’s Assads have been Russia’s principal asset in the Middle East. 3. To expand the reach of Russia’s own military. It has a naval base at Tartus, its only such outside of Russia. It has an airfield near Latakia, now being expanded with

an infusion of battle tanks, armored personnel carriers, howitzers and housing for 1,500 — strongly suggesting ground forces to follow. 4. To push out the Americans. For Putin, geopolitics is a zero-sum game: Russia up, America down. He is demonstrating whom you can rely on in this very tough neighborhood. Obama has given short shrift to the Kurds, shafted America’s allies with the Iran deal and abandoned the Anbar Sunnis who helped us win the surge. Meanwhile, Putin risks putting Russian boots on the ground to rescue his Syrian allies. Obama says Bashar Assad has to go, draws a red line on chemical weapons — and does nothing. Russia acts on behalf of a desperate ally. Whom do you want in your corner? 5. To re-legitimize post-Crimea Russia by making it indispensable in Syria. It’s a neat two-cushion shot. At the U.N. next week, Putin will offer Russia as a core member of a new anti-Islamic State coalition. Obama’s Potemkin war — with its phantom local troops (our $500 million training program has yielded five fighters so far) and flaccid air campaign — is flailing badly. What Putin is proposing is that Russia, Iran and Hezbollah spearhead the anti-jihadist fight. Putin’s offer is clear: Stop fighting Assad, accept Russia as a major player, and acquiesce to a RussiaIran-Hezbollah regional hegemony — and we will lead the drive against the Islamic State from in front. And there is a bonus. The cleverest part of the Putin gambit is its unstated cure for Europe’s refugee crisis. Wracked by guilt and fear, the Europeans have no idea what to do. Putin offers a way out: No war, no refugees. Stop the Syrian civil war and not only do they stop flooding

into Europe, those already there go back home to Syria. Putin says, settle the war with my client in place — the Assad regime joined by a few “healthy” opposition forces — and I solve your refugee nightmare. You almost have to admire the cynicism. After all, what’s driving the refugees is the war and what’s driving the war is Iran and Russia. They provide the materiel, the funds and now, increasingly, the troops that fuel the fighting. The arsonist plays fireman. After all, most of the refugees are not fleeing the Islamic State. Its depravity is more ostentatious, but it is mostly visited upon minorities, Christian and Yazidi — and they have already been largely ethnically cleansed from Islamic State territory. The European detention camps are overflowing with Syrians fleeing Assad’s barbarism, especially his attacks on civilians, using artillery, chlorine gas and nail-filled barrel bombs. Putin to the rescue. As with the chemical weapons debacle, he steps in to save the day. If we acquiesce, Russia becomes an indispensable partner. It begins military and diplomatic coordination with us. (We’ve just agreed to negotiations over Russia’s Syrian buildup.) Its post-Ukraine isolation is lifted and, with Iran, it becomes the regional arbiter. In the end, the Putin strategy may not work, but it’s deadly serious and not at all obscure. The White House can stop scratching its collective head whenever another Condor transport unloads its tanks and marines at Latakia.

Sixteen candidates remain in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. Fifteen of them were invited to Wednesday night’s debates. And then there was Jim Gilmore. “I’m very disappointed,” the former Virginia governor told me when I reached him on Wednesday. He paused, as if reflecting on his word choice.“Uh, actually, I’m angry,” he revised. In fact, “I’m really upset about this.” Gilmore warmed quickly to this thesis. “It’s wrong and against the public interest,” he said of debate host CNN’s decision to disallow his participation, even in the pre-debate debate of minor candidates, based on his sub-1-percent standing in the polls.“CNN is not being faithful to the stewardship they’ve taken on.” Gilmore would like to take up his grievance directly with CNN’s Washington bureau chief, Sam Feist, but “the guy won’t even call me back, which I consider a personal insult,” he said. And so the former governor, Republican National Committee chairman and chairman of a national homeland-security commission did the only thing he could do: While the other candidates reached tens of millions of Americans on the airwaves, Gilmore went to his campaign office in Alexandria, Va., and tweeted out his own answers to his 1,500 followers using the hashtag #GOPDebate: “Trump doesn’t understand the Constitution.” “Dr. Carson waffles.” “If Santorum becomes president he will have to obey the law to.” (sic) “Fiorina ducked the question.” “Huckabee calls for disobedience of the law.” “Gov. Walker does not understand how wages go up.” But as his tweets vanished into the ether with scarcely a retweet, Gilmore showed his frustration; not an hour into the rollicking, interminable debate, as the candidates on the stage finally ganged up on front-runner Donald Trump, Gilmore tweeted that it was “all process and nothing to tweet about.” Live-tweeting the debate from which he was excluded was but one of many indignities Gilmore had endured of late. For one, he seems to be doing his own staff work. He has been known to send reporters emails from his Gmail address, providing his cellphone number and asking them to call. I used the number to call him Wednesday, and he was grateful for

the attention: “It’s like water in a desert to me.” I attempted to serve as an oasis for the parched candidate. Could he say how much money he has raised? “Nope, can’t do that,” he answered. (He has not yet had to file a report to the Federal Election Commission.) Would he run ads? “We’ll augment our strategy with ads if we raise enough money to run ads,” he replied. How about campaign staff? “OK, let me count,” he replied.“Dan. Dick. ... Alex. Um, let’s see here. Um, Jeff. ... I think seven at this point,” although “some are part time.” Gilmore is aggrieved by my Washington Post colleague David Fahrenthold, who wrote that Gilmore “has not held a single formal campaign event with actual voters present.” The governor finds this to be “a little cute” because he actually does go to campaign events — just not his own.“I don’t need to” have campaign events, he said, because there are plenty of committee meetings and candidate forums he can attend. In fact, he has visited New Hampshire nine times this year, he said. But with little to show for it. CNN said Gilmore was the only candidate who had been in either of last month’s Fox News debates who didn’t meet its requirement of averaging 1 percent support in any three polls released over a two-month period. But George Pataki and Lindsey Graham made the JV event even though they averaged 0.5 percent in recent polls, and CNN bent its requirements to allow businesswoman Carly Fiorina to join the main event Wednesday night. Yet none of this changes the governor’s strategy: to “finish as high as possible” in New Hampshire, then ride his momentum into South Carolina. How high? “I’m not going to make a prediction.” In theory, there should be room for a “commonsense conservative” such as Gilmore on the debate stage and in the race. He thinks Trump and others are too harsh on immigration, Graham is too hawkish and Jeb Bush is wrong on education. He believes John Kasich is wrong on entitlements and Ben Carson is wrong on veterans. “I am a grown-up in the room,” he told me. Maybe that’s his problem. But the governor isn’t bowed. “I ain’t gettin’ out — period,” Gilmore said. Not getting out — yet not being let in. Dana Milbank dana.milbank@washpost.com Copyright the Washington Post

Edwards, Harold Eugene

died Saturday, September 12, 2015, surrounded by family and loved ones. She was 81 years old. Born in Dayton, Ohio, on February 28, 1934 to Robert Chase Green and Ruth Elizabeth Green, Connie grew up in St. Louis, Missouri with her three brothers, James Foster Green, Robert Chase Green II (both deceased), and Thomas Robbins Green. Throughout her life, she stayed in close touch with the friends she made while growing up in St. Louis. Connie attended Wheaton College and the University of Edinburgh, settling in Boston as a young woman. She was a successful real estate broker who ran her own company for 15 years, living in an historic home in Beacon Hill. She was an active member of the Beacon Hill Civic Association, the Friends of the Public Garden, and worked with the city in planting the wonderful flowering pear trees that grace Beacon Hill. She spent many summers in Mattapoisett on Buzzards Bay, where she loved to sail. In the late 1980s, she reunited with her college sweetheart Peter Harvie, and they were married in Boston in 1988. Connie relocated to California in 1989, and she and her husband ultimately settled in Montecito where they remained together and in love until his death in 2008. In California, Connie's interest in arbory and horticulture continued. She was a strong supporter of the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens, and served for a time as a member of the Board of Trustees. She was a gifted gardener, a lover of music, art, and architecture, and in recent years made trips with friends to places such as Venice and the Veneto, Sicily, Rome, and Turkey. Connie was also a graceful skier, a fine tennis player, and an avid angler who shared her husband's love of fly-fishing on the beautiful rivers of the Montana wilderness. She will be remembered as a gentle woman of great wisdom and strength who loved to laugh and poke fun, and who was devoted to her husband of 20 years and their two dogs. She is survived by her brother, Thomas Green and his wife Mary, and two step-children, Christopher J. Harvie and his wife Claudia and their four sons, and Ashley Harvie and her two daughters. Her ashes will be laid next to those of her beloved husband in Troy, NY. Donations in Connie's memory may be made to either the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research or the Public Broadcasting Service.

Elizabeth "Betty" Scudder Howe, a resident of Palm Beach Florida, St. Louis, Missouri, and a summer resident of Harbor Springs, died peacefully Sunday, August 23, 2015, at the age of 89 from complications related to congestive heart failure in Petoskey, Michigan, while in a hospice care room overlooking Little Traverse Bay, surrounded by family members. Earlier on the day, she was able to communicate with all her children and grandchildren, who could not be present. She was even able to "FaceTime," always with a smile, with her newest pride and joy, her only great-grandchild, residing in Denver, Colorado, baby Susie. Born on July 20, 1926 in St. Louis, Missouri, she graduated from Mary Institute (MICDS) and after graduation volunteered for various service organizations, in support of our WWII military troops. Several years after the war, she met and married Jame H. Howe III. They had been married 65 year's at the time of his death in 2012. Besides at all times possessing a priceless sense of humor and being the best mother, grandmother, and recently great-grandmother, anyone could imagine, even with five (5) children, she was able to be an active volunteer with the Red Cross Canteen, Children's Hospital, and the Junior League. She was Past President of the Mary Institute Alumnae Association (also served on the Board), St. Louis Service Bureau, and Decorative Arts Society. She also served on the Women's Boards of Bethesda and the Missouri Historical Society. Over the years, she and her husband enjoyed traveling to visit their children and grandchildren and also traveled all over the world. When not at their Florida home, they would enjoy spending a portion of the spring and fall with family and friends in St. Louis and the summer in Harbor Springs. She was survived by her five children: Susan Howe Dubin (Ron) of Greenwich, Connecticut, Marie Howe Sprague (Dan) of Lexington, Kentucky, along with Nelson H. Howe II (Cathy), Rebecca "Becky" Howe Hailand (Arthur) and James H. Howe IV (Mary), all residing in St. Louis. Her real pride and joy, like her husband's, were her nine grandchildren who called her "Mimi": Elizabeth Kelly Freeman, Diana Kelly Holdtman, Justin Howe Kearns, Catherine "Filley" Howe, Elizabeth Bunn Hailand, Authur G. Hailand IV, Henry Howe Hailand, Melissa Brenton Howe, and James H. Howe V; and, of course, her approximate six-month old great-grandchild, Susie Scudder Freeman. Also surviving her is her sister-in-law, Eleanor N.L. Howe of Palm Beach. The family wishes to thank her long-time caregiver companion, who truly became her friend, Iva Moxey Rolle, for making her life a better one with all the care and attention she devoted to her over the last several years. Services: A private family service and committal will be held at the St. Peter's Episcopal Church Colubarium. Friends are invited to join the family at a reception on Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Log Cabin Club, 1140 Log Cabin Lane, Ladue. In lieu of flowers, memorials appreciated to MICDS, 101 N. Warson Road, St. Louis, Missouri 63124, or to a charity of one's choice. A SERVICE OF THE LUPTON CHAPEL

GOP leaders seek to avert shutdown But some hard-right lawmakers threaten to oust Boehner over Planned Parenthood BY ANDREW TAYLOR AND ALAN FRAM associated Press

• House Republican leaders scrambled on Thursday to head of a politically damaging government shutdown in two weeks over rebellious conservatives’ demand that any stopgap spending bill block federal funds for Planned Parenthood. Leadership sought an outlet for GOP lawmakers’ outrage after this summer’s release of videos secretly recorded by abortion foes, who contend they show that Planned Parenthood illegally profits from selling tissue from aborted fetuses to medical researchers. Unclear is whether a vote on Friday to defund Planned Parenthood and other

WASHINGTON

steps will be enough to placate conservatives, emboldened by widespread criticism of the organization at Wednesday’s GOP presidential debate. Temporary funding legislation is needed to give the chronically dysfunctional Congress more time to sort through huge differences over a full-year spending bill that could ease a budget freeze facing the Pentagon and domestic agencies. Top congressional Democrats exiting a meeting with President Barack Obama on Thursday said any temporary funding measure should have a short time span and that Democrats would demand increases for domestic agencies. “We want to make sure we have equal money for defense and nondefense,” said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-

Nev. In the final months of the year, another possible shutdown looms over Obama’s demand that the GOP-led Congress to increase the nation’s borrowing authority. What is clear is that the once-routine job of advancing a short-term spending bill to keep the government open past an Oct. 1 deadline remains a major headache for House GOP leaders, chiefly Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Some hard-right lawmakers and Tea Party adherents are threatening to try to topple Boehner, a fierce foe of abortion who has held the speakership since January 2011. “We’ve seen promises to fight tooth and nail on things in the past and it hasn’t really materialized,” said Tea Party-backed Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz. “I think there

will be a point where the thin ice breaks.” Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., accused Boehner of “subverting our republic,” and working for lobbyists rather than “what the constituents of our district want.” Boehner’s preference is to pass a temporary funding bill that’s free of the controversy. Democrats are sure to filibuster any bill defunding Planned Parenthood should it come to a vote in the Senate, and Obama has promised a veto. The organization, which provides birth control, abortions and various women’s health services, says it’s done nothing wrong. Planned Parenthood gets about $450 million in federal funds annually, the Congressional Budget Office says, virtually none of which can be used for abortions.

Democrats defeat latest GOP Pentagon ready to change efort on Iran nuclear deal tactics in Syria campaign BY ERICA WERNER associated Press

WASHINGTON • A last-ditch GOP at-

tempt to derail the Iran nuclear deal failed in the Senate on Thursday, and defeated Republicans said they would move on and leave the fight against the Iran accord to the next president. Senators voted 53-44 to block a measure preventing the administration of President Barack Obama from lifting sanctions against Iran unless the country recognizes Israel as a state and releases American hostages. A second vote, on a disapproval resolution against the deal, also fell short, on a 56-42 vote. In both cases, 60 votes were needed to advance to final passage but minority Democrats largely held together to prevent it. Two previous votes in recent days against the Iran deal produced similar outcomes. Democrats were even more united Thursday, as several who oppose the Iran deal nonetheless voted with their party on one of the measures, rejecting attempts by the GOP majority to use the issue to political advantage. “This cynical tactic is a waste of the

Senate’s time,” Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., complained on the Senate floor, contending that lawmakers should instead be working on legislation to fund the government and prevent a partial shutdown ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline. But Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the deal aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear program actually strengthens it and that Congress should say “no.” At the same time, McConnell told lawmakers the Senate would now move on from the Iran issue and prepare for a vote next week on legislation banning most late-term abortions, a measure scheduled just before a visit from Pope Francis. “The deal can, and likely will, be revisited by the next commander in chief,” McConnell said of the Iran agreement. “But its negative consequences promise to live on regardless — and far beyond one president’s last few months in oice.” The accord negotiated by the U.S., Iran and five world powers will provide Iran hundreds of billions of dollars in relief from international sanctions in exchange for a decade of constraints on the country’s nuclear program. Opponents fear it will empower Iran and threaten Israel.

WASHINGTON • The administration of

President Barack Obama is preparing a major overhaul of its failed efort to train thousands of moderate Syrian rebels to fight the Islamic State group, shifting from preparing rebels for frontline combat to a plan to embed them with established Kurdish and Arab forces in northeastern Syria, U.S. oicials said. Instead of fighting Islamic State in small units, the U.S.-trained rebels would be attached to larger existing Kurdish and Arab forces. They would be equipped with U.S. communications gear and trained to provide intelligence and to designate Islamic State targets for airstrikes in coordination with U.S. troops outside of Syria, the oicials said. The change amounts to an acknowledgement that the administration’s current approach is not working. It was described by officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because a final decision on how to proceed has not been made. The discussion of a new approach comes a day after the head of U.S. Cen-

tral Command, Gen. Lloyd Austin, told Congress that the $500 million efort to train 5,000 moderate Syrian rebels in a year had yielded “four or five” new fighters after 50 or so were captured, wounded or fled in their first encounter with extremist militants. The new approach is designed to intensify military pressure on Raqqa, the selfdeclared capital of the so-called caliphate Islamic State has established across much of Syria and Iraq. The city is sometimes targeted by American-led coalition airstrikes, and Syrian government forces have occasionally targeted it as well. In addition to changing the role of the U.S.-trained rebels, the Pentagon would scale back their numbers from the original target of 5,400 per year to a much smaller total, perhaps 500, the officials said. Their vetting, designed to weed out terrorist infiltrators, also would be streamlined, one oicial said Thursday. Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook told reporters Thursday that oicials are looking to make “adjustments,” adding, “We’re asking a host of questions about this program.” He said the plan is for it to continue “in some form or fashion.”

vanced legislation Thursday to make permanent a series of temporary tax breaks for restaurants, multinational corporations and other businesses. The bills would add $412 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade, drawing complaints from Democrats who said Republicans are willing to rack up debt to pay for tax cuts, but not to pay for important programs. “Anybody who talks about caring about debt and then votes for these bills is hypocritical to the nth degree,” said Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash. Republicans countered that the tax breaks, which expired in January, are longstanding provisions that are routinely renewed every year or two — with support from both Republicans and Democrats. Making them permanent would add certainty to the tax code while being honest about the long-term cost, said Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas. Congress routinely lets more than 50 temporary tax breaks for businesses and individuals expire, only to renew them at the end of the year so taxpayers can claim

them on their tax returns. The tax breaks most recently expired in January. The House Ways and Means Committee has been working to make selected tax breaks permanent. The White House and many congressional Democrats oppose the effort because it adds to the budget deficit. Republicans note that extending the tax breaks every year or two adds the same amount to the budget deficit. But under Congress’ budget rules, the full cost of temporary tax breaks doesn’t show up in oicial deficit projections. The committee passed five tax bills, all on party line votes: • Two would enable businesses to more quickly write off the cost of buying new equipment and renovating property. One bill targets restaurants and retailers; the other is broader. They would add $309 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade, according to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation. • Two would benefit U.S.-based multinational corporations. They would add $100 billion to the deficit over the next decade. • A bill providing a $250 deduction to teachers who spend their own money on classroom supplies would add $2.5 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade.

Bill Murray was inducted into the Caddie Hall of Fame on Wednesday night in Lake Forest, Ill., with his ive brothers. Before his induction, Murray, who is from the Chicago area, played a round of golf at nearby Conway Farms wearing argyle Cubs shorts. He signed autographs and took pictures with those in attendance. When asked about the induction, Murray told the Chicago Tribune: “I’ll believe it when I see it. The last time someone told me something like that, I was a caddie and I ended up being the victim of a practical joke. So we’ll see what happens.” The “Caddyshack” star and his brothers worked as caddies at the Indian Hill Club in Winnetka, Ill. New show on American history • Craig Ferguson is ready to debate American history on cable’s History Channel, the network announced Thursday. The Scottish-born comedian will star in “Join or Die,” a half-hour series where he debates historical topics with guests including celebrities and history experts, as well as viewers through social media. Topics might include: What was the biggest presidential campaign lop? And who was the greatest Founding Father? The phrase “Join or Die” is Benjamin Franklin’s rallying cry to the divided colonists. And it was tattooed on Ferguson’s forearm when he became an American citizen in 2008. No première date for the 16-episode season was announced.

State report inds Illinois Lottery lost money last year The Illinois Lottery lost money last year for the first time since 2009, reducing the amount of money it generates for state programming by $125 million, according to a new report from the Illinois Legislature. The loss comes after the state hired a private manager, Northstar Lottery Group, in 2010 to increase sales and profits. Money from the lottery goes to state programs, mostly education eforts. The bipartisan Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability’s report shows the amount of lottery money available for state programs fell by $125 million to $690 million during the fiscal year that ended June 30, The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported. The state’s capital projects fund felt the drop the most, receiving $8 million last year, or 94 percent less than the previous year. Because of the way lottery money is distributed, schools received a little more SPRINGFIELD, ILL.

money last year — $679 million up from $668 million the year before. Lottery officials attribute the drop to prize payout ratio changes that cost about $77 million, according to the report. Northstar Lottery Group officials didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment. The report painted a grim picture of the state’s relationship with Northstar. It said Northstar has consistently failed to meet profit targets, has gone to arbitration with the state numerous times, repeatedly paid penalties for not meeting targets and failed to expand the number of lottery retail outlets as promised. “The future of the lottery is expected to be turbulent in the coming months,” the report said. The report also comes at a time when the Illinois Lottery isn’t paying out winnings of more than $25,000 due to a state budget crisis. Winners have filed a lawsuit asking the state to stop selling lottery tickets until the winners are paid.

Texas Muslim group doesn’t fault school, police for boy’s detention BY JAMIE STENGLE AND DAVID WARREN associated Press

IRVING, TEXAS • One of the largest

Muslim groups in Texas said Thursday that it does not fault police and school officials who handcuffed and suspended a 14-year-old Muslim boy after he brought a homemade clock to class that they mistook for a possible bomb. Instead, Khalid Hamideh of the Islamic Association of North Texas blamed political leaders for espousing inflammatory anti-Muslim rhetoric and creating a “climate of fear.” “We’re not pointing a finger at the school district or the police department,” Hamideh said. “Under the current climate that exists in this country, you can’t really blame them because when they see something like that, they have to react.” The association operates the mosque attended by the family of Ahmed Mohamed, the suburban Dallas student who became a sensation on social media after word spread about his clock and the way he was treated.

Ahmed was pulled from class Monday after he showed the device to a teacher. He was questioned by the principal and police, then handcufed and taken to the police station. The Muslim community is concerned that Ahmed was interrogated without a lawyer or his parents present and was led out in handcufs, Hamideh said. Authorities declined to seek charges against the boy, saying there was no evidence he intended to cause alarm. They said he’s free to retrieve his clock at the police station. A police photo of the device shows a carrying case containing a circuit board and power supply wired to a digital display. School district spokeswoman Lesley Weaver did not return a call for comment Thursday but previously said school administrators followed district policy, which allows staf to take action if a student has a “look-alike” weapon or engages in behaviors that “substantially disrupt or materially interfere with school activities.”

BEER MERGER MAKES SENSE THE BUILDING OF A BEER EMPIRE

A-B InBev bid for SABMiller isn’t formal, but it feels like a done deal

3G Capital, a firm led by Jorge Paolo Lemann, merged two Brazilian brewers in 1999 to form Ambev. Three big mergers — Interbrew in 2004, Anheuser-Busch in 2008 and Grupo Modelo in 2013 — built what is now Anheuser-Busch InBev. If the company is successful in buying SABMiller, it will control 30 percent of the world’s beer market.

2008. It’s bigger, it’s global in scope and its cost structure is not nearly as flabby. Still, most observers seem to regard the latest beer merger — which so far isn’t even a formal proposal — as all but a done deal. What makes this combination so compelling, and why is it happening now? First, deals are what A-B InBev Chief Executive Carlos Brito and his investors, led by Jorge Paolo Lemann, do. They’ve digested their last big purchase, of Mexico’s Grupo Modelo in 2013, and are ready for what they see as the logical next step. Second, SABMiller is vulnerable. It has

DAVID NICKLAUS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Here we go again. The world’s largest beer company wants to be even bigger, and it has a rival brewer in its sights. SABMiller, the latest target for the acquisitive Brazilians who run AnheuserBusch InBev, is not much like the old Anheuser-Busch, which InBev gobbled up in

no controlling family shareholder who could block a deal. SABMiller was rebufed in a 2014 attempt to buy European rival Heineken, and its shares had fallen 19 percent in the past year. Third, all the big beer companies are under pressure. Their most lucrative markets, the U.S. and Europe, aren’t growing and their big brands are losing market share to craft brews. “There’s a lot of chaos in the market and the best way to efectively sell your product See NICKLAUS • Page B4

How much do you make? Employees often don’t ask or tell BY DIANE STAFFORD The Kansas City Star

Remember Lilly Ledbetter? Her pay discrimination case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and paved the way for legislation that makes it a bit easier for workers to seek fair or equal wages. Ledbetter worked for years in a tire plant, earning far less than

men doing the same job. But she didn’t know it. And when she finally learned about the pay disparity, the court said it was too late to complain. A lot of people thought the decision was hogwash. How can you complain about disparity if you don’t know it exists? The first bill President Barack Obama signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restora-

tion Act of 2009, which effectively extended the time in which workers can file pay discrimination claims. But that addressed just one part of tackling pay disparity. How can you complain if you don’t have the pay figures to compare? The president last year signed an executive order to provide some compensation clarity, at

least in the federal work arena. Just after Labor Day, the Labor Department announced final rules to implement the order, effective Jan. 11. Basically, employees of federal contractors and subcontractors cannot be fired or otherwise discriminated against because they discuss, ask about or disclose their own pay or that of others. The new rules won’t invoke

a sea change overnight. A 2014 survey by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research and Rockefeller found that 51 percent of women and 47 percent of men said discussion of compensation was discouraged, prohibited or could lead to punishment in their workplaces.

BUSINESS DIGEST Fire destroys Peak lodge in Ohio • Peak Resorts, owner of the Hidden Valley ski area in Wildwood, said Thursday ire has destroyed the main lodge of its Mad River Resort in Zanesville, Ohio. Wildwood-based Peak said it had no information on the cause of the ire. No one was hurt in the blaze Wednesday. Preliminary information indicates the ire damage will afect only Mad River’s food and beverage service for the upcoming ski season, the company said. Peak said that at the time of its initial public ofering last November, Mad River accounted for approximately 7 percent of the company’s revenue. Peak shares slipped 8 cents, or 1 percent, to close Thursday at $7.02. Arch creditor sues lenders • A creditor of Arch Coal Inc. has sued a group of lenders, alleging they are trying to use the struggling Creve Coeur-based miner’s credit agreement to block its out-ofcourt restructuring eforts and push it into bankruptcy. GSO Special Situations Master Fund LP, which holds some of Arch Coal’s unsecured notes, has sought a temporary restraining order against the lenders. Arch Coal’s restructuring plan includes a private debt exchange ofer to swap existing senior notes for longer term securities. The company had announced the exchange ofer in July and had extended, multiple times, the deadline for completion, which is now Sept. 23. GSO, a part of private equity irm Blackstone Group LP , said the defendants are using “improper and legally unsupportable eforts” to block the swap and if the restructuring

plan fails, it is nearly certain the company would ile for bankruptcy. The transaction is expected to help the company reduce its total debt by almost 20 percent and its annual interest expense by more than 20 percent, it said. Arch Coal oicials or GSO Capital Partners LP were not immediately available for comment. Glitches hit American • American, the world’s largest airline, experienced hundreds of delays Thursday as it stopped takeofs to Dallas-Fort Worth, Chicago O’Hare and Miami international airports for nearly two hours. The carrier ixed the technical problems, which it characterized as “connectivity issues,” that started at 11 a.m. Central time, a company spokesman said. International lights and service on subsidiary US Airways were not afected. Some 525 lights on American Airlines were delayed and ive canceled on Thursday, according to light-tracking website FlightAware.com. Rival United Airlines in June halted lights when it discovered a problem arising from its dispatch software. And in July a router error locked United out of its reservations records and therefore blocked check-in and boarding. Toyota recalls RAV4 SUVs over wipers • Toyota Motor Corp. unit Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. said it would recall about 423,500 RAV4 SUVs in the United States for an issue related to windshield wipers. The company said the recall includes about 421,000 units of 2009-2012 RAV4 crossover SUV and about 2,500

units of RAV4 EV, the all-electric version, from 2012-2014. Toyota said water dripping onto the windshield wiper links in these vehicles can cause corrosion and wear at its joint and separate the wiper link from the motor crank arm. This could reduce driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Owners of the involved vehicles will be notiied by irst class mail, the company said. Homebuilding slows in August • Builders broke ground on fewer houses and apartment complexes in August, a possible sign that the housing market may be leveling of after accelerating for much of the year. Housing starts last month fell 3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.13 million homes, the Commerce Department said Thursday. Cheaper oil helps deicit • Cheaper oil imports and greater U.S. exports lowered the deicit in the broadest measure of U.S. trade in the April-June quarter. The Commerce Department said Thursday that the current account deicit shrank to $109.7 billion, down from $118.3 billion in the irst quarter. The current account tracks not only trade in goods and services but also investment lows. Falling oil prices helped reduce the value of oil imports, lowering the trade deicit to $130 billion from $134.3 billion in the irst quarter. Exports of goods and services increased to $564.7 billion from $561.7 billion. From staf and wire reports

314-266-7072 Saab says trainer bid could bolster Boeing ties Plant here could be candidate to build aircraft BY TIM HEPHER reuters

LONDON • Sweden’s Saab is confident of selling training jets to the U.S. Air Force, but believes its bidding partnership with Boeing could lead to further cooperation with the U.S. aircraft maker whoever wins the $11 billion contest, its chief executive said. Boeing and Saab are among contenders for a deal to replace the aging T-38 trainer in a competition known as T-X. Experts have said that Boeing’s north St. Louis County complex would be a prime candidate to build the aircraft. Saab Chief Executive Hakan Buskhe said he was “very happy” with the two-year-old partnership with Boeing and that he was not worried about the cost of their new design, even though it was “significant.” “It is so tempting that you can’t stay out and ... I think we will win. That is my view,” Buskhe said of the competition, speaking to Reuters at a London defense exhibition. “If we don’t win, we have learned a lot of other things and we have shown it is possible to work together and have created a culture between Boeing and Saab (such) that we could do more things together.” Despite being rival fighter manufacturers, Boeing and Saab already cooperate in adapting an air weapon for ground forces.

In 2013, they agreed to develop a new plane to try to win the U.S. order for 350 trainers. The U.S. Air Force plans to launch that competition formally in 2017, and analysts say it could eventually buy up to 600 planes. The design of the Boeing-Saab proposal has been one of the industry’s closest secrets, but Boeing offered a glimpse at an Air Force Association event in Washington this week. A teaser graphic showed a long and slender nose section and partial cockpit, with no engine inlets or wings in sight. Experts said that indicated the aircraft may be larger and more ambitious than traditional trainers such as Britain’s popular Hawk, whose wings and engines sit close behind the pilot. Northrop Grumman Corp., builder of the current T-38, had originally teamed with Britain’s BAE Systems to offer the Hawk, but tightened the contest this year by announcing it had switched to an all-new model. Also ofering a clean-sheet design is Textron Inc. Lockheed Martin has partnered with Korean Aerospace Industries to ofer the South Korean T-50. Italy’s Finmeccanica, recently abandoned by U.S. partner General Dynamics in a bid to ofer a jet based on the Italian M-346 trainer, is looking for a new U.S. partner, executives said at the DSEI defense event in London.


B4 • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

BEST OF BUILDING BLOCKS Highlights from our real estate and development blog. STLtoday.com/ buildingblocks Peacock sees upside to delay • A delay in the presentation of St. Louis’ stadium proposal to the NFL won’t hurt its marketing eforts, according to Dave Peacock. The co-leader of the plan to build a new football stadium said the delay gives project leaders more time for site acquisition and designers more time to complete their work. “They can go home at 7 (p.m.) instead of 10 (p.m.), I guess,” Peacock told a questioner after a speech he delivered to a crowd of commercial real estate pros. St. Louis was planning to present its stadium proposal at next month’s NFL owners meetings. However, the league announced Tuesday that the NFL’s Los Angeles Committee, rather than all the team owners, would hear the presentation at a future date that has yet to be announced. Peacock, a former Anheuser-Busch president, is the public face of the efort to build a $1 billion football stadium on the St. Louis riverfront and keep the NFL in St. Louis. He appeared before a hotel ballroom full of real estate people to recap the stadium plan and take questions for about an hour. Some of Peacock’s other responses to questions from those attending the CBRE Real Estate Strategies Summit at the Frontenac Hilton: • The Green Bay Packers are the league’s only publicly owned team, a status likely to remain unique among NFL clubs. • St. Louis is about to embark on a construction binge, with billions of dollars spent on projects by the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District, the National GeospatialIntelligence Agency and, he hopes, a new NFL stadium. • The cast has changed but St. Louis remains a corporate headquarters town. Gone are Anheuser-Busch and some other old-timers but on the scene now are newer big companies such as Express Scripts. The region has a “robust” corporate base able to support an NFL team. • Growth of Major League Soccer means a team could play at the new riverfront stadium, but league expansion to St. Louis is unlikely before 2020 or 2021. • NFC championship games in St. Louis are preferable to a Super Bowl. “They’re a hell of a lot less expensive, and your team is in it.” (09.16) Trucking irm relocates downtown • Baron’s Express, a small trucking company, has expanded from its longtime home on the south side of downtown to another location a few blocks away. The company, founded in 1988, bought the 4,800-square-foot, 53-yearold building at 1120 South Second Street for $600,000. Nooter Corp. was the original builder of the structure, situated now on a 3.8-acre lot. Baron’s Express had been at 900 South 13th Street since 1991. Hilliker Corp. represented both sides in the recent real estate deal — seller MU Investment Property LLC and buyer Rutger Real Estate and Investment Co. (09.16) Cortex gets another tenant • Sitton Energy Solutions is moving its oice in Sunset Hills to the @4240 building at the Cortex technology district in the Central West End. The energy consultant based in O’Fallon, Ill., said the move is the result of growth in its business of analytical technologies for buildings. Sensors, meters, modems and other hardware will be analyzed, the company said. New software applications also will be explored. Sitton said the company has hired ive employees in recent months, nearly doubling its workforce. (09.17)

Cigna CEO defends deal with Anthem Insurer answers critics, calls takeover good for consumers BY CAROLINE HUMER reuters

NEW YORK • Health insurer Anthem’s planned $47 billion takeover of rival Cigna will not hurt consumers but increase choice and afordability, Cigna CEO David Cordani said, defending the merger against widespread criticism that it will harm competition. The Anthem-Cigna deal and a plan by Aetna Inc. to buy Humana have come in the wake of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and amid pressure on insurers to keep health care spending down for their biggest customers — employers and the U.S. government. “It’s going to increase choice, not decrease choice. It’s going to increase afordability, not de-

crease afordability,” Cordani told Reuters in an interview, saying results-oriented contracts with doctors and hospitals would help consumers be healthier and trim medical spending. Cordani said the biggest overlap in a combination of their $115 billion businesses is their large employer-based divisions and asset sales may be necessary to win regulatory approval, though he expects that would only be on a limited basis. “Divestitures through the DOJ process should be modest and manageable. And we’ve leaned on the conservative side of the business case that supports this,” he said, but added it was too early to say what might be ofered up. About 150 million Americans get their health insurance through their employers, many of which are large companies. In the past few weeks, both the American Medical Association and the American Hospital Association have issued written

criticisms of the deal. The AMA last week said the Cigna-Anthem merger would cause a dramatic drop in competition in Missouri, especially in the St. Louis market. Congress held a hearing on insurer competition last week and another hearing is scheduled in the Senate next week in which Anthem CEO Joseph Swedish and Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini are scheduled to appear. The company expects the Department of Justice review to take 12 to 18 months during which it will look at the extent of their overlap in market share for Medicaid for the poor, Medicare Advantage for seniors, individual insurance, small employers and large employers. Cordani said the detailed nature of the review would show few competitive issues. There was little geographical overlap in their Medicaid and Medicare businesses and he is also not anticipating issues with the individual business, where Cigna is a new

player, nor with small employerbased plans. He added that insurers would not see outsized benefits from cutting costs through their combinations because customers typically demand that spending savings be passed onto them. So far, Cordani said, employers have been optimistic that the combination will enable them to combine the results-oriented care management programs for diseases like diabetes that Cigna has used to cut healthcare spending in Medicare and commercial plans, and combine them with the Anthem’s strong Blue Cross Blue Shield networks. “Within that, there may be deemed by the DOJ some overlap that is not acceptable and we’ll deal with that,” he said. On branding, he said that in a state like Georgia, where Cigna and Anthem both operate, the companies can continue with their Cigna and Anthem branded plans and designs.

Fiat Chrysler contract sets new wage range If pact is ratiied, sources say, UAW members would get $3,000 bonuses BY BRENT SNAVELY Detroit Free Press

DETROIT • Both new and long-

time autoworkers at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles represented by the UAW union will receive wage increases under a new four-year contract if they vote to ratify it in the coming weeks. A new tentative agreement between the UAW and Fiat Chrysler would set a new wage range for entry-level workers of more than

$17 an hour to more than $25 per hour over a period of several years, according to two sources briefed on the contract who could not be named because the details have yet to be shared with union members. The current wage for entrylevel workers starts at $15.78 per hour and tops out at $19.28 over four years. That means entry level workers who earn the top wage now would eventually see their hourly wage increase by about 30 percent. The contract also would give workers hired before 2007 their first raise in 10 years, the people said. Those workers would receive raises in the first and third years of the four-year contract of somewhere between 75 and 84 cents per hour, or by nearly 3 percent.

Bloomberg News reported Wednesday night that those workers would increase their average hourly pay to about $30, up from about $28 per hour now. Bloomberg also said the new contract would pay UAW members $3,000 bonuses if they ratify it. A third key element of the proposed contract is a new approach to profit-sharing that would give entry-level workers larger profitsharing payments than workers hired before 2007 if the automaker’s profits pass a certain threshold. The way that threshold is calculated is unclear. A spokesman for the UAW declined to comment, and a spokeswoman for Fiat Chrysler also declined to comment. UAW President Dennis Wil-

liams, by delivering wage increases, will be able to tell union members that he is delivering a contract that fulfills the main goals the union had when discussions began in July. But Williams may still face an uphill battle to convince members to ratify the agreement in the coming weeks even with signing bonuses and raises that many outsiders will see as generous. For years, Fiat Chrysler workers have received less money in profit sharing and bonuses than workers at Ford and GM. The average UAW worker at Fiat Chrysler has received $9,000 in profit-sharing over the last four years, compared to $30,200 for their counterparts at Ford and $30,250 at GM.

sions to make sure that MillerCoors remains a viable competitor and that craft brewers can get their products into bars and stores. A-B InBev also may have to sell brands in China and other countries, including Peru and Ecuador. Negotiations will take time, but Pirko doesn’t think any one country can derail a deal that makes global sense. “The reason this deal is going to go through is that it is a classic win-win,” he says. “It is in the interests of both parties.” The only losers may be the world’s other large brewers. They’ll face a behemoth competitor with an unparalleled cost structure and marketing budget, while craft brands nibble away at their profits. It’s no fun to be in the middle feeling a squeeze from both ends.

is to have scale,” says Tom Pirko, managing director of California consulting firm Bevmark. “It’s a critical-mass game, and SABMiller is standing exposed.” The big question is whether the companies can agree on a price. April Scee, an analyst at Sterne Agee CRT, wrote a report predicting a price of between $100 billion and $120 billion for SABMiller, which would rank among the five biggest acquisitions in history. It also would be at least a 33 percent premium over the company’s value before A-B InBev’s overture became public. That’s a lot, especially since the news wasn’t a complete surprise.

Investors have been talking about this match of and on for at least four years. Brito, though, will pay plenty for something he covets. “SABMiller is worth a lot more to A-B InBev than as an independent company,” says Bill Finnie, a former Anheuser-Busch executive and adjunct professor at Washington University’s Olin Business School. “It will slash corporate overhead costs and use

its larger size to cut operating costs significantly. They are world class cost cutters.” Antitrust regulators may be the deal’s most significant obstacles. A-B InBev is almost certainly prepared to sell SABMiller’s interest in MillerCoors, its U.S. joint venture, but the Justice Department may want more than a sale. Pirko thinks the government may take a hard look at A-B InBev’s distribution network, seeking conces-

Addition ills vital gap in growth of health care here EXPANSION • FROM B1

need approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. One of the biggest barriers for any health care startup is the regulatory component, said Sean Morris, CEO of St. Louis-based Pulse Therapeutics, which uses an outof-town firm for regulatory compliance issues. “There are no boots on the ground,” Morris said of regulatory experts here. He was surprised to hear about Cardinal Health opening an oice in St. Louis because, typically, firms choose to open offices in Boston, Minnesota or other areas that are historically known for drug and medical device development. Pulse is developing technology to speed the delivery of blood clot-busting drugs. Its technology uses a magnet to draw and stir nanoparticles directly to the clot; that movement among the particles helps improve the fluid

movement in the arteries and in turn helps the drug reach the problem area, according to the company. The technology will soon begin clinical trials in the United States, and has already experienced success in Australia on a limited number of patients during a pilot study, Morris said. Morris said working on the regulatory piece of the business is a daily necessity for startups.

GROWING SECTOR Venture capital funding funneled to the health care sector in the St. Louis area has surged in recent years, according to Seattle-based PitchBook, a research firm for private equity and venture capital. In 2014, local health care startups drew $103 million, compared with only $9 million in 2012. “St. Louis is really attractive to us because we see a lot of emerging biopharmaceutical companies,” said Trey Putnam, vice

president and general manager of regulatory sciences for Cardinal Health’s specialty solutions unit. “We just felt that there was sufficient momentum (in St. Louis) that we had to have boots on the ground,” Putnam said. Cardinal Health wholesales medical supplies and pharmaceuticals, produces medical products, and provides support services for health care firms. Its revenue stood at $103 billion for the year ended June 30. When the St. Louis Regional Chamber found out Cardinal was interested in potentially opening a local oice, Kim Plank was tapped to lead a tour of St. Louis and persuade them to come here. The executives told Plank, director of health sciences and services for the chamber, that they were also looking at Boston and other sites on the coast. Plank and Ben Johnson of BioSTL, a nonprofit focused on growing the local biotech sector,

showed the executives their future office in the Cambridge Innovation Center, a co-working space for startups. Plank said they appeared to like the fact that larger institutions, including the local universities, seemed to work together and share resources. Companies such as Cardinal will help local startups stay in the region. It’s important to have more local resources, Walker said, because that’s one reason companies end up leaving — in search of more resources, including regulatory help. “A lot of times big investors come in and they’ll pull them to either coast or Minnesota,” Walker said. “If there is local support here, we have a better chance of keeping those businesses here.”

Fantasy sports irm is new NFL ad leader DraftKings has spent more than $80 million on airtime since Aug. 1 BY DREW HARWELL Washington Post

The biggest TV ad blitz during the National Football League’s season-opening week wasn’t selling Budweiser or a big Ford truck. It came from DraftKings, a billion-dollar fantasy sports upstart asking, “Are your dreams big enough to cash a giant check?” But as millions of Americans sign up for DraftKings, FanDuel and rival “daily fantasy sports” sites, lawmakers have increasingly raised a critical question dogging one of the Internet’s fastest-growing gaming empires: Is it legal? The sites offer high-speed, cash-prize contests in which bettors can craft an imaginary team of real-life players, which is then scored on how well the athletes performed on the field. DraftKings guaranteed $10 million in winnings during the NFL’s first week, including a $2 million top prize. Classified by law as a game of skill, not chance, the business has been deemed legal under a loophole of the federal onlinegambling ban. But a dozen states this year, including California, where one lawmaker has made demands for strict new licensing and regulations, have considered legislation that would afect the online games. Rep. Frank Pallone, a ranking Democrat in the legacy-gaming state of New Jersey, this week called for a congressional hearing into the surging business’s ties to gambling, possibly setting the stage for the industry’s first true legal challenge. “Anyone who watched a game this weekend was inundated by commercials for fantasy sports,” Pallone said in a statement. “Despite how mainstream these sites have become, though, the legal landscape governing these activities remains murky and should be reviewed.” The games were designed spe-

cifically to fit under the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gaming and Enforcement Act, which banned games such as online poker but carved out protections for the fantasy sports popular in workplace leagues. At that time, the lightning-speed daily version now clobbering the airwaves had yet to pocket its first bet. DraftKings’ chief executive Jason Robins defended the games, for which entry fees range from 25 cents to more than $5,000, as a legitimate, skill-based and legally protected way for fans to show their love for the game. For “anyone who has taken the time to understand the law as it relates to DraftKings’ offerings, and anyone who has seen the data … on the skillfulness of the game, it’s really, honestly not a debate,” Robins said. “It’s clearly legal. And we have a team of great lawyers who watch everything we do.” The sites are young and unprofitable but spending wildly in

hopes of dominating the potentially lucrative industry, which Eilers Research, a gaming trade analyst firm, said could attract more annual player spending than Las Vegas’ sports books by 2016. DraftKings, founded three years ago, has spent more than $80 million on national airtime since Aug. 1, according to data from industry tracker iSpot. tv, almost three times what the company made in total revenue last year. The sites, valued by private financing deals at more than $1 billion, have been backed by some of media and sports’ biggest conglomerates, who see the fast-paced, quasi-addictive game play as a way to hook new viewers and keep them watching and spending on sports. The New York-based FanDuel has signed sponsorship deals with the National Basketball Association and 16 NFL teams, and has been boosted by investors in-

cluding NBC Sports, Google and Comcast. DraftKings has pocketed hundreds of millions of dollars in investments and has inked deals with ESPN, Fox Sports and the national pro leagues of baseball, hockey and soccer, as well as a dozen NFL teams. Last weekend, the New England Patriots’ home stadium started pouring beer for ticket-holders at a new lounge, the DraftKings Fantasy Sports Zone. The modern clash between the games and lawmakers “seemed inevitable,” said Adam Krejcik, managing director of Eilers Research. “They’ve become these very visible, trending targets, and clearly they’re on a very close line between what’s considered gambling and what’s not.” Over the last week, DraftKings became America’s biggest TV advertiser, spending $20 million on more than 5,800 commercial airings, more even than Geico, Verizon and AT&T, according to

iSpot.tv data. FanDuel has spent $20 million since Aug. 1, about the amount that a top NFL quarterback earns for an entire season. The companies have added to their spending glut by guaranteeing huge rewards — a big gamble, considering they’ll have to pay out whether their games attract enough paying players or not. But DraftKings’ Robins, whose site awarded $300 million in prizes last year, said the big bets were just a cost of doing business in an industry with seemingly skyrocketing appeal. “The worst experience possible,” he said, “is you’re doing all this marketing and driving people to your website, and there’s nothing for them to play.” The industry’s ad offensive seems to have worked. Hundreds of thousands of new players joined DraftKings during the first days of the NFL season, 10 times as many as signed up at the same time last year, Robins said.

Fed cites global slowdown, instability

Testing facility is going to Brazil

FED • FROM B1

December. “Every (Fed) meeting is a live meeting,” Yellen said. “October, it remains a possibility.” In maintaining its policy, the Fed is keeping its benchmark short-term rate near zero, where it’s been since the depths of the 2008 financial crisis. A higher Fed rate would eventually send rates up on many consumer and business loans. The ultra-low loan rates the Fed engineered were intended to help the economy recover from the Great Recession. Since then, the economy has nearly fully recovered even as pressures from abroad appear to have grown. In a statement it issued after its meeting ended, the Fed said that while the U.S. job market is solid, global pressures may “restrain economic activity” and further slow inflation. Signs of a sharp slowdown in China, the world’s second-largest economy, and other emerging economies have intensified fear about the U.S. and global economy. And low oil prices and a high-priced dollar have kept inflation undesirably low. “We’re focused particularly on China and emerging markets,” Yellen said at her news conference. “We’ve long expected, as most analysts have, to see some slowing in Chinese growth over time as they rebalance their economy. The question is whether or not there might be a risk of a more abrupt slowdown than most analysts expect.” China’s economy has slowed for four straight years — from 10.6 percent in 2010 to 7.4 percent last year. The International Monetary Fund expects the Chinese economy to grow just 6.8 percent this year, slowest since 1990. The continuation of the Fed’s ultralow-rate policy likely means that rates on mortgages and car loans will remain low. That could help maintain steady economic growth and hiring in coming months. Mark Vitner, an economist at Wells Fargo, said he was a bit disappointed by the Fed’s delay because it suggested that the U.S. economy still wasn’t at full health. But by holding down loan rates, the delay could lift home sales and construction, he said. Other analysts worry, though, that ultra-low rates are encouraging more risktaking by investors and could inflate bubbles in the stock market or other assets. Stocks ended mostly lower after a volatile day as traders tried to decide on the path of interest rates. The Dow Jones industrial average ended down 65 points, or 0.4 percent. It had rallied shortly after the Fed’s statement came out, then drifted lower. But bond prices rose, sending yields lower, as traders reacted to the Fed’s prediction that inflation will remain subdued. Financial markets had been zigzagging with anxiety this summer as investors tried to divine whether the Fed would start phasing out the period of extraordinarily

The company will also invest $55 million in Celma, Brazil, to build a new engine testing facility, and will spend $23 million on expanding its engine testing capability in Winnipeg, Canada. The announcement comes after the company said on Tuesday it plans to shift up to 500 U.S. power turbine manufacturing jobs to Europe and China because it can no longer access Ex-Im Bank financing. The jobs will be moved from locations in Texas, New York, South Carolina and Maine. Lack of clarity over whether the Ex-Im Bank will resume lending has prompted GE and other companies to scramble to make alternative plans. GE has said it is bidding on $11 billion worth of international projects that require export credit agency financing and, since the Ex-Im Bank authorization expired, has started talks with several foreign export credit agencies. The turboprop engine center will mark a more significant investment in commuter and regional aircraft for GE, which has long been a major engine supplier to larger commercial planes. GE Aviation spokesman Rick Kennedy said GE would be at a competitive disadvantage with its rival in the turboprop business, Pratt & Whitney Canada, a division of United Technologies Corp., because Pratt can provide governmentbacked credit assistance from Canada to its customers. “We considered the U.S. and other global locations, but ultimately, with the uncertainty around Ex-Im, we had to rule out the United States,” Kennedy said. GE Aviation employs 25,000 workers in the United States, including 9,000 in southwest Ohio, where the division is headquartered. Lawmakers are searching for a strategy to revive the trade bank after letting its charter expire on June 30. On Wednesday, President Barack Obama said he expects the U.S. Congress to reauthorize the Ex-Im Bank during its upcoming budget negotiations.

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen speaks Thursday in Washington. She said interest rates could still go up this year.

low borrowing rates it launched at a time of crisis. At her news conference, Yellen stressed that even after the first increase from zero, interest rate policy will be “highly accommodative for quite some time.” She has stressed that any rate increases will likely be modest and gradual. The Fed’s action Thursday was approved on a 9-1 vote, with Jefrey Lacker casting the first dissenting vote this year. Lacker, president of the Fed’s Richmond regional bank, had pushed for the Fed to begin raising rates by moving the federal funds rate up by a quarter-point. Instead, the Fed retained language it has been using that it will be appropriate to raise interest rates when it sees “some further improvement in the labor market” and is “reasonably confident” that inflation will move back to the Fed’s optimal inflation target of 2 percent. The Fed’s preferred measure of inflation was most recently up just 1.2 percent, compared with 12 months earlier. And it has been below 2 percent, year over year, for more than three years. In an updated economic forecast, 13 of the 17 Fed policymakers said they see the first rate hike occurring this year. In June, 15 Fed oicials had predicted that the first rate hike would occur this year. The new forecast significantly lowered the expectation for inflation this year to show the Fed’s preferred inflation gauge rising just 0.4 percent, down from a 0.7 percent forecast in June. The change takes into account the further rise in the value of the dollar, which makes imports cheaper, and a recent drop in oil prices. The Fed’s forecast still foresees inflation accelerating to a 1.7 percent increase next year, still below its 2 percent target. The new forecast has unemployment dropping to 5 percent by the end of this year, down from 5.3 percent in June. The unemployment rate in August dropped to a seven-year low of 5.1 percent. AP Economics Writers Paul Wiseman and Christopher S. Rugaber contributed to this report.

But the opposition to the bank is fierce in the House of Representatives, where Republican leaders such as Senate Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, D-Calif., and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, oppose its reauthorization. Ryan has labeled the bank “crony capitalism.” Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group backed by the major Republican donors Charles and David Koch, has led a coalition against the bank since early 2014. A majority in the Senate favors the legislation, and a procedural vote in June pushed by Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., a leading proponent, favored the bank, 65-31. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was among those voting against it. And the issue has inculcated the presidential campaign, with candidates Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, both opposing the reauthorization of the bank’s charter. Kirk, along with Sen. Dick Durbin, DIll.; Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.; and Roy Blunt, R-Mo., all favor re-chartering the bank, as do all members of the St. Louis delegation in the House of Representatives. But in a floor speech this week, McCaskill complained that the Senate’s prolonged debate on the Iran nuclear deal, which does not have sufficient votes to procedurally defeat it despite a majority opposed to the deal in both Houses, has sucked up so much time it is delaying action on other issues like the re-authorization of the Ex-Im Bank. “I plead with my friends on the other side of the aisle, make time in your busy schedule in scoring political points on Iran, for the Export-Import bank,” McCaskill said. GE had drawn on Ex-Im Bank backing for a $1 billion deal to supply railway and energy equipment to Angola. GE Vice Chairman John Rice told Reuters in July the company was seeking financing from another country’s export credit agency to save that deal. Reuters and Chuck Raasch of the Post-Dispatch Washington Bureau contributed to this report.

Cablevision, headquartered in Bethpage, N.Y., is family controlled. ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK • European telecommunications and cable company Altice has agreed to buy New York cable operator Cablevision for $17.7 billion, including debt, as it pursues its aggressive expansion in the United States. Altice announced the deal Thursday, and Cablevision said the family controlled company considered that “the time is right for new ownership of Cablevision.” The move is part of Netherlands-based Altice’s plan to broaden its business in the U.S. It bought Suddenlink, a smaller cable company based in Town and Country, for $9.1 billion in May after trying to take over the much larger Time Warner Cable. Shares of Cablevision Systems Corp. jumped $4.32, or 15.1 percent, to $32.86 in late afternoon trading. Altice said the deal will be financed with $14.5 billion of debt at Cablevision plus cash from both companies. Altice said it hopes to complete the deal in the first half of next year, though it remains subject to regulatory approval. U.S. cable companies have been in a merger frenzy over the past few years as people increasingly drop their TV packages and watch video online from competitors such as Netflix, while cable companies’ costs for sports and other channels rise. Charter Communications, backed by cable pioneer John Malone, is trying to buy Time Warner Cable and Bright House for $67.1 billion. That comes after Comcast walked away from a combination with Time Warner Cable because of regulatory resistance. AT&T recently

closed on a $48.5 billion purchase of satellite TV company DirecTV. Altice SA is controlled by founder and French billionaire Patrick Drahi, who has a long track record of expanding businesses through aggressive acquisition campaigns. At a Goldman Sachs investor conference in New York on Thursday, Drahi said there is room to improve overhead costs at Cablevision and complained the salaries are high at the company. He added that he was committed to having a presence in the U.S. for the long term, and said European and U.S. companies could learn from each other. The goal is “to bring the U.S. (average revenue per user) to Europe and Europe’s cost structure to the U.S.,” he said. Drahi cut his teeth by setting up regional cable TV operators in France in the mid-1990s that he sold to big U.S. corporations. He then helped the same U.S. companies buy up smaller rivals in Europe before setting up Altice in 2002. Drahi expanded Altice from a small Internet and cable provider in France’s Alsace region to making an $18.5 billion acquisition last year of France’s No. 2 mobile phone operator, SFR. This year, Altice bought Portugal Telecom for $8.4 billion as well as Suddenlink in the U.S. It also has operations in Belgium, Switzerland, Israel and elsewhere. The corporate buying binge pushed Drahi up the ranks of the world’s wealthiest people, from number 215 last year to number 57. Altice’s CEO Dexter Goei has said that the company is aiming for half of its portfolio to be U.S. business.

MILWAUKEE • Along the way to a series sweep of Milwaukee and an enriching night for starter John Lackey, the Cardinals, like everyone else at Miller Park Thursday, gathered for a ballgame. But then they stood in silence, unsure of what they were watching. In the third inning of a game that would become a 6-3 Cardinals victory, rookie Tommy Pham drilled a pitch from Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson right back at the young pitcher. The line drive drilled Nelson in the head. See CARDINALS • Page C5

Hitchcock says Blues’ coaching needs to improve

As the gaggle gathers at home plate before Friday’s game, I foresee Mike Matheny strutting over slowly like he does, unforgivingly serious, like Judge Smails in “Caddyshack” … while Joe Maddon saunters over, unforgivingly delirious, like Al Czervik infiltrating Bushwood Country Club, when he told the judge’s wife: “You must’ve been something before Milwaukee starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson lays on the ground after being hit in the head by Tommy Pham’s liner.

Blues coach Ken Hitchcock looks at last season and sees the good and the bad. He sees a team that had the thirdmost points in the league, was tied for the most points in the Western Conference and came in first, with five points to spare, in what everyone agrees was the toughest division in the league. He also sees a team that went out in the first round of the playofs and almost cost him his job. He sees a need for the team to change, and he Hitchcock thinks that need starts with him and his coaching staff. The Blues take the ice on Friday for the start of training camp, their first time on the ice since they were eliminated from the playoffs by Minnesota in April. That was a decidedly early ending to what seemed just a few days before to be a promising season. When practice begins, Hitchcock

Just three days before the team’s big Week 2 matchup with Washington, Thursday came and went at Rams Park and the team did absolutely ... nothing. OK, that’s not entirely true. The coaching staff met and continued to work on the game plan. Players came in on their own to get a lift in or watch film. But there was no practice. That’s right, the team did not practice Thursday. In the traditionbound NFL, routine and Fisher regimen is the order of the day. For about as long as there has been a players’ association, Tuesday always has been the mandated players’ day of during the regular season.

MILWAUKEE • The moment the line drive of Cardinals rookie Tommy Pham’s bat connected with Jimmy Nelson’s skull, the game stopped as the Milwaukee Brewers starter dropped. “You just forget that you’re even playing at that point,” Matt Carpenter said. Carpenter had to be reminded by a coach to run to home with the Cardinals’ third run of what would become a 6-3 victory. Pham hesitated, and even as he made his way to second base, paused along the way to see if Nelson was going See CARDINALS • Page C5

M 1 • FRIDAY • 09.18.2015

All the talk about the Rams being big in Los Angeles this season is just that so far — talk. Despite the rumblings about the team returning next year to LA, from which it left for St. Louis in 1995, the Rams’ season opener Sunday was not shown there and their game this weekend is not scheduled to be on in that market, either. Both telecasts are Fox productions and that network’s LA affiliate, KTTV, carried the DetroitSan Diego contest last weekend. And it’s scheduled to show San Francisco-Pittsburgh and DallasPhiladelphia this Sunday, not the Rams’ game in Washington. KTTV general manager Bob Cook could not be reached for comment. But his counterpart at KTVI (Channel 2), the St. Louis Fox ailiate, called that development “interesting.” When KTTV did show a Rams exhibition game last month, the rating in St. Louis was about 10 times greater than in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, given the circumstances, the Rams had a fairly decent performance in the television ratings chase for their season opening victory Sunday. Nielsen says 17.7 percent of homes in the St. Louis market with a TV tuned in to the telecast, on KTVI (Channel 2). That’s better than the 16.0 figure they drew for their opener last year but ties for the fifth-worst rated opener in their 21 seasons in town. And given the scintillating nature of the game, a rollicking overtime affair in which the Rams upset two-time defending NFC champion Seattle, it was not a marquee ratings performance. However, it was a respectable number given that many fans have expressed apathy, or even disdain, because of owner Stan Kroenke’s expressed desire to move the team to the Los Angeles area and his long stand of silence. Plus the weather was spectacular, leading some potential viewers to opt instead for outdoor activities. If the Rams win again Sunday, Koch predicts a big audience for the following week — when they entertain Pittsburgh on a CBS telecast to be shown locally on KMOV (Channel 4). “Its an unusual situation, but winning takes care of a lot of things,” he said.

BEAVER MIGHT HAVE KO’D LOCAL RADIO STATION KXFN (1380 AM), which airs a lot of sports-talk programming, was of the air for several days recently and that provided plenty of fuel for conspiracy theorists. The station is leased by talkstl.com — a web-based programming provider — from Grand Slam Sports. And Grand Slam is best known in the last couple years for a wild saga that includes unpaid bills that led to its transmitters being turned off and employee unrest that culminated with a fight in the studio that led to a broadcaster being arrested and a company executive being hospitalized. Grand Slam finally ran its other station, KFNS (590 AM), off the air following its more than a twodecade run in the sports-talk business that was interrupted briefly near the end when it was switched to “guy talk” (and 1380 AM to women’s-oriented shows). So late last week when KXFN began sounding like KFNS has since November — only a blast of static — the immediate suspicion for

Milo Hamilton found a happy home in Houston after a Hall-of-Fame, albeit nomadic, baseball broadcasting career that began in St. Louis in 1953.

Milo Hamilton, who started with Browns, dies Milo Hamilton, who began his bigleague broadcasting career in St. Louis in the 1950s and went on to call Henry Aaron’s record-shattering 715th home run in a Hall of Fame career, died Thursday of an undisclosed cause. He was 88. He spent the last 28 seasons of his career broadcasting Houston Astros games before retiring after the 2012 season. “He was a dandy,” said longtime St. Louis and NBC sportscaster Jay Randolph, who would run into Hamilton when Randolph was calling Cardinals games on TV for much of the 1970s and ’80s. “He did his homework and enjoyed his celebrity very much. He loved to tell you about things he had done.” Leland Milo Hamilton, who went by his middle name, graduated from the University of Iowa in 1949 and got his first major-league job with the St. Louis Browns in 1953. That team, now the Orioles, moved to Baltimore the next year but Hamilton remained in St. Louis to join Harry Caray and Jack Buck on Cardinals radio broadcasts. He didn’t last long. Caray wanted a former Cardinal, Joe Garagiola, in the booth instead. And in the first major move by Robert Hyland, who went on to become the legendary boss of KMOX (1120 AM), he fired Hamilton after one year in favor of Garagiola. Hamilton landed in Chicago, where he called Cubs and White Sox games before becoming the lead Braves announcer in 1956, when the team moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta. He was there in 1974, when he had the call of Aaron’s milestone homer: “Here’s the pitch by (Al) Downing. Swinging. There’s a drive into leftcenter field. That ball is going to be ... out of here! It’s gone! It’s 715! There’s a new home run champion of all-time! And it’s Henry Aaron!” But Hamilton was fired after the 1975 season and, following a stint in Pittsburgh, went back to the Cubs — and lost another battle with Caray. Hamilton had been told he would replace Jack Brickhouse as the lead Cubs broadcaster on WGN-TV after Brickhouse retired following the 1981 season. Meanwhile, the Tribune Co. bought the team and hired Caray away from the White Sox. “It’s not a military secret (Caray) got me fired at (W)GN,” Hamilton once told the Tribune. “But obviously he was absolutely right because I haven’t done anything right since then. I’ve only made the Hall of Fame, and a few other items.” But he had a happy ending in Houston, where his nomadic career finally found a long-term home.

some was that another unpaid bill by Grand Slam had led to the power to the transmitter being turned of. But talkstl.com owner Scott Gertken said the outage was caused by a transformer falling to the ground and creating a problem involving Ameren Illinois, not Grand Slam. The transformer powers the transmitter, which sends out the signal, and they are located in a remote area on the Il-

linois side of the Mississippi River near the Chain of Rocks Bridge. “We were told (by Ameren) that they think a beaver may have chewed a tree down back in the flood plain, and that tree fell and ... pulled the transformer and the wire (holding up a pole) down,” Gertken said. “It was in such a heavy vegetated area that they had to bring their forestry group in to even get in there and cut a path” to get the repairs done, which took 2½ days. “That was a debacle,” said Gertken, whose station features J.C. Corcoran in morning drivetime and Kevin Slaten in afternoons. “We were really literally at the mercy of nature.” Programming continued to run on the company’s website, but Gertken knows the conspiracy theory talk regarding the overthe-air signal was out there. “That’s the fun part, that’s what keeps us alive,” he said, adding that his company’s relationship with Grand Slam is good. “I think they’re trying to do what they need to do on their end to clean things up,” he said. “I think they’re making progress.”

PUCK POWER The football season is just getting rolling, and now hockey is on the horizon — the close horizon. The Blues begin their exhibition schedule Tuesday in Columbus. Although there are no broadcasts locally set for that game, two of their practice contests (both against Chicago) are to air on radio — Sept. 26 on KYKY (98.1 FM) and Oct. 1 on KMOX (1120 AM). KMOX remains the team’s flagship radio station, with KYKY being used when the Cardinals are playing at the same time. All the Blues’ regular-season games are to be televised, primarily on Fox Sports Midwest, but FSM is not showing any of their exhibition schedule. NHL Network is to carry about 20 of the league’s warm-up games, beginning Friday with the New Jersey-Boston contest at 6 p.m. That Blues-Blackhawks game on Oct. 1 is on NHL Network’s schedule, but is to be blacked out in St. Louis. There are no personnel changes this season on the Blues’ local radio or TV play-by-play broadcasts.

DIGEST Blackhawks’ Kane says he’s done nothing wrong Speaking publicly for the first time since he became the subject of a sexual assault investigation, Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane said Thursday that he has done nothing wrong and expects to be exonerated. Kane is accused of assaulting a woman in her 20s in August at his ofseason home outside Bufalo, N.Y.. a source told The Associated Press. Kane has not been charged, but the investigation has shadowed the Stanley Cup champions for weeks as they prepare for a season that begins at home on Oct. 7. He appeared at the Blackhawks training camp at South Bend, Ind. “I cannot apologize enough for the distraction this has caused my family, teammates, this incredible organization and, of course, our fans,” said Kane, who was joined at a table by Blackhawks President

John McDonough, general manager Stan Bowman and coach Joel Quenneville. “While I have too much respect for the legal process to comment on an ongoing matter, I am confident once all the facts are brought to light I will be absolved of having done (anything) wrong.” Rascals seek to stay alive • The River City Rascals face elimination in Game 3 of the Frontier League championship series against Traverse City (Mich.) at 6:35 p.m. Friday at T.R.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK Redshirt freshman gets nod at QB for Florida Florida will start redshirt freshman quarterback Will Grier in its Southeastern Conference opener. The Gators (2-0) made the announcement Thursday, two days before they open league play at Kentucky (2-0). Grier and sophomore Treon Harris split snaps during the irst two games, with each getting a start. Grier has completed 26 of 35 passes for 317 yards and four scores. He also has an interception and a fumble. Harris has completed 19 of 27 for 269 yards and two touchdowns. Gators coach Jim McElwain said Wednesday he doesn’t have a timeline for picking a starter for the rest of the season and plans to go with the hot hand. McElwain says, “If a guy’s hitting it and distributing it and has a good stroke, then we’ll go with it.” No. 11 Clemson nips Louisville • Deshaun Watson threw two touchdown passes, Wayne Gallman ran for 139 yards and No. 11 Clemson held of Louisville 20-17 on Thursday night in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both schools. Despite ragged stretches including two interceptions by Watson, Clemson (3-0, 1-0) followed up routs of Woford and Appalachian State with a solid conference win. Watson was spot on when needed, inding Hunter Renfrow and Jordan Leggett wide open down the middle for TD passes of 32 and 25 yards, respectively. Purdue players arrested • Police say they have arrested Purdue freshmen cornerbacks Evyn Cooper and David Rose for trying to stealing bicycles. WLFI-TV and the Journal & Courier report Purdue police arrested Cooper for theft and Rose for attempted theft about 1 a.m. Wednesday on campus. The two players, both 18, were booked into Tippecanoe County Jail and released on bond. Narduzzi mum on QB • Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi is going to keep Iowa guessing about his starting quarterback. Narduzzi declined to name a starting QB for Saturday’s game against the Hawkeyes, saying he’ll wait until kickof before choosing between Chad Voytik and Nate Peterman. “It’s going to be a gametime decision,” Narduzzi said Thursday. “We might know before then, but you guys won’t know. Narduzzi had said earlier this week he planned to reveal his choice on Thursday and both players would see reps no matter who went out for the irst series. Associated Press

Coaching connections are always easy to ind BY MARK TUPPER Decatur (ill.) Herald & review

CHAMPAIGN, ILL. • The rarest soul in coaching is the person who hasn’t put his home up for sale in 20 years. Most coaches are in one place for only a few years, often less. Staf shakeups are common. Sometimes a better job comes along. Sometimes failure on the field means people get fired. Collateral damage is common. According to his resume, current Illini interim head coach Bill Cubit has moved 11 times to stay in the coaching game. Alabama’s Nick Saban has been in 13 diferent spots, Ohio State’s Urban Meyer nine, including Illinois State (coaching linebackers, quarterbacks and wide receivers in 1988 and 1989). The way coaches zig-zag across the country, it’s no wonder so many of their paths cross. That becomes apparent this week as Illinois prepares to play Saturday at North Carolina. North Carolina’s head coach is Larry Fedora and that should ring a bell for any Illini fan who has been paying attention since the mid-2000s. After Ron Turner was fired as head coach following the 2004 season, Illinois’ then-athletics director Ron Guenther replaced him with Ron Zook, who had just been fired at Florida. Zook’s first job was to assemble a coaching staf and the person he tabbed to be his offensive coordinator was Larry Fedora, who’d worked for him at Florida. Fedora visited Champaign, toured the underwhelming facilities (that was before the Memorial Stadium renovation) and told Zook he would take the job. But within a few days, Fedora had a change of heart. He backed out, leaving Zook without a coordinator. Shortly thereafter, Fedora accepted a job as ofensive coordinator at Oklahoma State and Zook turned instead to Mike Locksley, who would open a temporary recruiting pipeline to Washington, D.C., leading to the eventual recruitment of Illini stars Arrelious Benn and Vontae Davis, among others. During Fedora’s third season at Oklahoma State, coach Mike Gundy hired a young defensive coordinator whose name was Tim Beckman. Eventually, Fedora left to become coach at Southern Mississippi and he parlayed that job into the coaching opportunity at North Carolina. Zook, meanwhile, took Illinois to the Rose Bowl following the 2007 season, but when the momentum fizzled, he reshaped his Illini staf and on the defensive side he hired Vic Koenning as his new coordinator. Koenning was both popular and efective. And when Zook was fired after the 2011 season by new athletics director Mike Thomas, it was Koenning who served as interim head coach and led Illinois to a Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl victory over UCLA. The defensive players on that team campaigned for Koenning to get the job on a permanent basis, but Thomas chose another direction, perhaps because Koenning had gone 5-29 while head coach at Wyoming. Instead, Thomas hired Beckman. And Fedora, looking for someone to run his North Carolina defense, hired Koenning. It was assumed that when Illinois an-

Missouri Western and Pittsburg (Kan.) State — but Mizzou was willing to err on the side of size, speed and potential. The more they learned, the more they liked. “We didn’t know he was a remarkable competitor,” said Pinkel, whose 22nd-ranked Tigers (2-0) host Connecticut (2-0) at 11 a.m. Saturday on ESPN. “We didn’t know he was dying to be a great player.” Initially, Missouri put Harris with the linebackers as a freshman. Kentrell Brothers, then a sophomore linebacker, knew something was amiss with the 6-3, 215-pound rawboned rookie. “He was always frustrated,” Brothers said. “It was hard for him to understand the concepts.” One day during preseason camp, the linebackers came into their meeting room and Harris wasn’t there. He found a new home with Kuligowski’s linemen. Two years and 40 pounds later, the Tigers have their next star along a suddenly regenerated front four. Kuligowski’s nine-deep rotation includes four freshmen and just three returning lettermen. When junior tackle Harold Brantley suffered season-ending injuries in a June car accident, Harris appointed himself the new leader of the room, a young group that’s accounted for 12.5 tackles behind the line. Not that Harris is counting. “At the end of the season I’ll probably look back at what I did, but so far, I just take it game by game,” Harris said. “It’s like what I’m telling the rest of the Dline: These are good numbers, but we can all do this. We all have to do this.”

electricity!” The managers of the Cardinals and Cubs have diferent mannerisms, managerial styles, coaching backgrounds and, you know what, they’re two of the best in the bigs. The new Tony-Dusty is Smails-Czervik. They face each other this weekend for three at Wrigley, in what very well could be an NLDS preview — a oncepreposterous premonition now a little over a fortnight from foresight. Yet as I think of Matheny and Maddon, it’s Matheny who actually makes me think of Rodney Dangerfield, he who famously uttered: “I get no respect, no respect.” Both nationally and locally, many believe the Cardinals win in spite of having Matheny, as if he’s a passenger upon Secretariat or something. Like, in some MLB cities, if a manager takes a team to three consecutive NLCSs, he’s a god. In St. Louis, they wonder if he’s actually good. Yet, this weekend’s series pits two of the three candidates for the NL’s manager of the year award (even if he doesn’t win this hardware, the Mets’ Terry Collins will surely win the honor of Manager Who Looks Most Like Roger From “Mad Men.”). Chicago’s Maddon is so beloved, he’s got a cult following. He’s your fun uncle. He’s that cool professor from college. He’s your relaxed neighbor who seems to get younger as he gets older. And he un-Cub’d the Cubs. Matheny, though? He could/does have the most wins in baseball, and we still find reasons to point a finger at him. But this has to be the year Mike wins the hardwood. Don’t give me the Cubs narrative that they’re “a year ahead of schedule.” Matheny shouldn’t be penalized in the voting because, according to some in April (not The Post-Dispatch’s Derrick Goold, though), the Cubs weren’t supposed to make the playofs. Matheny steamrolled for most of this season, and did so without Adam Wainwright, Matt Holliday, Matt Adams, Jon Jay, Jordan Walden, Matt Belisle, Enos Slaughter, Willie McGee and Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten. A man named Chris Jafe wrote the book on analyzing baseball managers. Like, literally — he wrote “Evaluating Baseball’s Managers: A History and Analysis of Performance in the Major Leagues.” I called him to talk Matheny-Maddon, and he praised both managers, and said of the St. Louis skipper: “I can’t imagine the Cardinals winning more games than they have won this year, and that’s about as good a compliment you can make for the manager. There might not be a single top-10 MVP candidate on the Cardinals, no top-five Cy Young finishers, they have injuries, but they’d had by far, by far, by far the best record in either league.” We’re lucky to have the personality and persona that is Maddon in our lives. He invigorates Cards-Cubs — he’s the Fireball shot to go with your Budweiser or Old Style. He’s rejuvenated Wrigley more than any fancy stadium renovation could. He taught his players to never let the pressure exceed the pleasure. He delicately maneuvers his chess pieces around the diamond. It looks like its fun to be a Chicago Cub out there. From watching games and talking to people involved with baseball, Maddon is a better tactician than Matheny. Maddon builds a lineup better, handles a bullpen better (privately, one orthopedic surgeon told me he’s somewhat worried that Seth Maness’ right arm might literally fall of). “When people look at managers, we typically evaluate them based on in-game tactics,” Jafe said. “Which makes sense; it’s how we can gauge. But I’ve found over the years that managers are more managers of men than managers of the game. So while in-game strategies matters, the stuf behind closed doors is often more important. But the public has a tendency to evaluate them based on the part we see, even if it’s just the tip of the iceberg.” Matheny is wont to have one-on-one chats with Cardinals throughout the season. Some chats may simmer, but they’re efective. Again, fans get mad at Matheny for botched moves, which is fair, but I don’t sense that they praise him enough when he wins. “We only notice them when they make a mistake; they’re like umpires that way,” Jafe said of managers in general, as he shared a fascinating way to be skeptical of skippers. “When a manager makes a decision, one of four things happens. He makes a move and watching at home I agree with it, and if it goes right, it’s just conventional wisdom, and I don’t think much of it. If it goes wrong, it was bad luck. If he makes a move I disagree with and it goes right, he just got lucky. And if he makes a move I disagree with and it blows up on him? He’s an idiot.” So here we are, Cards-Cubs. Wrigley. September. Games that matter. Playofs impending. St. Louis is pretty fortunate to be in this situation. Many mid-30s Cardinals fans, who grew up between 1988-1995, know not to take this for granted. Clearly no Cubs fan will. The rivalry writes a new chapter with two managers vying for a trophy that won’t mean much unless they win a bigger trophy, too.

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora nearly joined Illinois coaching staf in 2005.

nounced it would be playing North Carolina, this week’s game would be a reunion with Koenning. However, the North Carolina defense collapsed so thoroughly last season that Fedora fired Koenning. He is now the defensive coordinator at Troy, which will be a 35-point underdog Saturday at Wisconsin. So Larry Fedora, who gave Champaign a snif but said no after the 2004 season, is the man you’ll see on the sideline coaching the Tar Heels on Saturday. Where are the rest of the coaches in this all-star, connect-the-dots cast? Ron Turner is the head coach at Florida International University, where his team scored an emotional victory over Central Florida in the season opener. Ron Zook was promoted this season to special teams coordinator with Green Bay and Packers fans cheered Sunday when they successfully recovered an on-side kick against the Bears. Mike Locksley is the ofensive coordinator at Maryland, bringing him back to the Big Ten. Beckman remains the one dot that cannot yet be reconnected. He was fired at Illinois on Aug. 28 and has stayed on the down-low since. He sharply denies that he compromised the health and well-being of Illini players, which Thomas gave as the reason for his dismissal. Ironically, there is no line that connects Fedora to Cubit, despite their mutual longevity in the business. Asked this week if he had any history with Cubit, Fedora said, “I don’t think I’ve ever met him.” In this business, that’s very rare indeed.

Harris has been force for Mizzou defense MU • FROM C1

Kuligowski said of Harris, a redshirt sophomore, who had two sacks Saturday at Arkansas State. “I really feel he’s a special kid in terms of attitude and effort. He’s a rare breed in today’s world.” Ask coaches and teammates about Harris’ sudden brilliance through two games —he’s tied for second nationally with six tackles for loss — and a common response surfaces. “The thing about his performance Saturday was it really surprised none of us,” Kuligowski said. “It really didn’t. I get mad when he doesn’t do that.” “It’s what I expected,” added defensive tackle Rickey Hatley. “I expect even more out of him.” So does Missouri coach Gary Pinkel. With Kuligowski’s track record for developing star players along the front four, Pinkel gets a common question from friends, fans, reporters or the next guy in line at the grocery store: Who’s next? “Because,” Pinkel said, “we’ve been fortunate to have guys at those (defensive line) positions.” For the last year or so, the answer hasn’t changed: Charles Harris. The Prophecy of Pinkel has spoken. As Pinkel spoke Monday during his weekly news conference, he pointed out that Harris was across the hall working out in the weight room — on the players’ day of. “He’s got a chance to be a great, great player,” Pinkel said. “Some players I wouldn’t say that about because I don’t know if they can emotionally deal with it. It doesn’t matter what I say. He’s got his ideas of what he wants to be.” In Saturday’s 27-20 win at Arkansas State, Harris eclipsed many of the former stars who played along MU’s front

four: His 4.5 tackles for loss were the most by a Mizzou defensive lineman since Stryker Sulak had five against Illinois in 2008. Of all the pass-rush specialists to come through the program since then — Kony Ealy, Michael Sam, Markus Golden, in addition to the firstrounders mentioned earlier — none inflicted that much backfield damage in one game. That barely registered with Harris, who started one game last year and didn’t play his first season of organized football until his junior year at Lincoln Prep in Kansas City. “I’m not all that familiar with football in terms of the numbers and stuf,” he said. “People are saying those are great numbers, and I’m like. ‘Oh, really? OK’” Privately, though, Harris knows the numbers. At least one of them. “I know he wants to go for that sack record,” said Hatley, a nod to Ray’s single-season record of 14.5, set last season. “It’s in his mind. But he doesn’t talk about. … He’s just a good humble dude, though.” That dude didn’t fall onto Missouri’s radar without the help of former assistant Steve Schottel, who coached under Warren Powers in the 1980s. Years later, while coaching high school football in Kansas City, Schottel tipped of the staff about a young Aldon Smith. As the staf finalized its 2013 recruiting class, Schottel told quarterbacks coach Andy Hill about another underdeveloped pass rusher from the area. Harris was more of a basketball player, but Hill and MU’s staf recognized his long frame and broad shoulders. An 11th-hour addition to the recruiting class, Harris was the quintessential project — his only other scholarship ofers came from Northern Iowa,

ROUNDUP

Cubs beat Pirates, race tightens up The Chicago Cubs made a serious move as they try to catch the Pirates for the top NL wild card, taking three of four games in Pittsburgh. Anthony Rizzo started a six-run ifth inning with his 30th homer, and the Cubs rallied for a 9-6 victory Thursday. Chicago moved within two games of the wild-card leaders. Should the teams end up tied at the end of the regular season, Chicago would have home-ield advantage, having won the season series with 10 wins in 16 games. Pittsburgh began the day four games behind the irst-place Cardinals in the NL Central. But the Cardinals won their night game at Milwaukee, stretching their lead to ive games. “The division title is still the goal,” Maddon said. “That’s what we’re after.” The Cubs turned a 4-3 deicit into a 9-4 lead with a ifth-inning outburst that included a two-run double by reliever Clayton Richard (4-2) and RBI singles by Addison Russell and Tommy La Stella. Marlins 6, Nats 4 • Justin Bour and Martin Prado homered for the second straight game and Miami put a dent in Washington’s fading playof hopes. The Nationals, opening an 11-game inal homestand, fell eight games behind the idle New York Mets in the NL East.

AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 8, Indians 4 • Omar Infante drove in a career-high seven runs and Kansas City overcame early sloppiness at Cleveland. Infante, a veteran inielder making his irst start in 11 days, hit a threerun homer in the second inning of Corey Kluber (8-14), added a two-run double in the ifth after the Indians pulled their ace and a two-run single in the seventh. The AL Central-leading Royals had three errors in the irst three innings and four overall, but won for the just the fourth time in 13 games. A’s 4, White Sox 2 • Billy Butler hit a three-run homer in the ninth of David Robertson, and Oakland rallied for the win at Chicago. The White Sox were leading 2-1 heading into the ninth, but Robertson (6-4) blew his seventh save in 36 chances when he allowed a double to Brett Lawrie, a single to Danny Valencia and Butler’s 13th homer. Orioles 4, Rays 3 • Adam Jones hit a go-ahead, tworun single with two outs in a four-run eighth inning, and Baltimore beat host Tampa Bay.

INTERLEAGUE Blue Jays 5, Braves 0 • Toronto scored four runs in the fourth inning and host Atlanta didn’t advance a runner to second base in the series inale at Turner Field. The Braves have lost ive consecutive series and 14 of 15 games. They have a 15-48 record since a 42-42 start. At 57-90, the Braves would need to go 6-9 or better in their remaining games to avoid their irst 100-loss season since inishing 54-106 in 1988.

Rangers’ Hamilton set to return • Josh Hamilton kept trying to play through the persistent pain in his left knee, hoping to put of surgery until the ofseason. Unable to hold of on the procedure, Hamilton is already feeling better and hoping to be able to pinchhit for the AL West-leading Texas Rangers by the end of the weekend. “We’re not at all worried about the knee now,” Hamilton said Thursday. “Realistically, hopefully pinch-hitting by Sunday. Then we’ll play it day to day.” Hamilton said he hoped to take batting practice on the ield with the Rangers on Friday, which would be a week after arthroscopic surgery to clean up the meniscus in his left knee. He started swinging a bat indoors again Wednesday, hitting balls of a tee and soft toss. He has also been running on a treadmill and doing other exercises. “Been out of the baseball routine for a while,” Hamilton said before the Rangers played their series inale against Houston. “The biggest thing now is to make sure the legs are in shape.” Royals starter Dufy demoted • The Kansas City Royals have sent struggling starter Danny Dufy to the bullpen. AL Central-leading Kansas City is going through its roughest patch this season with nine losses in 12 games. The lefthander hasn’t won since Aug. 25 and has gone six innings just once in his last six starts. Dufy lasted only 2 1/3 innings on Wednesday night, giving up four runs in a loss to the Indians. He’s 7-8 with a 4.35 ERA in 24 starts.

This Date In Baseball Sept. 18 1908 — Bob Rhoads of the Indians pitched a no-hitter against the Boston Red Sox for a 2-1 victory in Cleveland. 1930 — New York pitcher Red Ruffing hit two home runs as the Yankees edged the St. Louis Browns 7-6 in 10 innings. 1954 — The Cleveland Indians clinched the American League pennant with a 3-2 triumph over the Detroit Tigers. 1963 — The New York Mets lost their last game at the Polo Grounds to the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-1, in front of a crowd of only 1,752. 1968 — Ray Washburn threw a 2-0 no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants at Candlestick Park, one day after the Giants’ Gaylord Perry tossed a no-hitter against Washburn’s St. Louis Cardinals. 1984 — The Detroit Tigers clinched the American League East Division with a 3-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers, making the Tigers the fourth team in major league history to lead from start to finish. The other three teams were the 1923 New York Giants, 1927 New York Yankees and the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers. 1987 — Detroit’s Darrell Evans became the first 40-year-old player in major league history to hit 30 home runs in a season as the Tigers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6. 1996 — Roger Clemens equaled his own major league record, fanning 20 batters and pitching a four-hitter to lead Boston over the Detroit Tigers 4-0. 2003 — Atlanta clinched its 12th straight division title when second-place Florida was mathematically eliminated from the NL East race after a 5-4 loss to Philadelphia. The record title streak started in 1991, when the Braves won the NL West. They moved to the East Division in 1994 and trailed Montreal by six games when the strike stopped the season in August.

ROUNDUP

Cubs beat Pirates, race tightens up The Chicago Cubs made a serious move as they try to catch the Pirates for the top NL wild card, taking three of four games in Pittsburgh. Anthony Rizzo started a six-run ifth inning with his 30th homer, and the Cubs rallied for a 9-6 victory Thursday. Chicago moved within two games of the wild-card leaders. Should the teams end up tied at the end of the regular season, Chicago would have home-ield advantage, having won the season series with 10 wins in 16 games. Pittsburgh is ive games behind the irst-place Cardinals in the NL Central. The Cubs turned a 4-3 deicit into a 9-4 lead with a ifth-inning outburst that included a two-run double by reliever Clayton Richard (4-2) and RBI singles by Addison Russell and Tommy La Stella. Marlins 6, Nats 4 • Justin Bour and Martin Prado homered for the second straight game and Miami put a dent in Washington’s fading playof hopes. The Nationals, opening an 11-game inal homestand, fell eight games behind the idle New York Mets in the NL East.

Texas now leads the division by 2½ games. Royals 8, Indians 4 • Omar Infante drove in a career-high seven runs and Kansas City overcame early sloppiness at Cleveland. Infante hit a three-run homer in the second inning of Corey Kluber (8-14), added a two-run double in the ifth and a two-run single in the seventh. A’s 4, White Sox 2 • Billy Butler hit a three-run homer in the ninth of David Robertson, and Oakland rallied for the win at Chicago. The White Sox were leading 2-1 heading into the ninth, but Robertson (6-4) blew his seventh save in 36 chances when he allowed a double to Brett Lawrie, a single to Danny Valencia and Butler’s 13th homer. Angels 11, Twins 8 • Mike Trout hit a grand slam and a solo shot to set a career high for home runs in a season with 38 and visiting Los Angeles beat Minnesota. The reigning AL MVP’s grand slam in the second inning erased most of an early 5-0 deicit and he led of the fourth with his second homer of the game.

Rangers’ Hamilton set to return • Josh Hamilton kept trying to play through the persistent pain in his left knee, hoping to put of surgery until the ofseason. Unable to hold of on the procedure, Hamilton is already feeling better and hoping to be able to pinchhit for the AL West-leading Texas Rangers by the end of the weekend. “We’re not at all worried about the knee now,” Hamilton said Thursday. “Realistically, hopefully pinch-hitting by Sunday. Then we’ll play it day to day.” Hamilton said he hoped to take batting practice on the ield with the Rangers on Friday, which would be a week after arthroscopic surgery to clean up the meniscus in his left knee. He started swinging a bat indoors again Wednesday, hitting balls of a tee and soft toss. He has also been running on a treadmill and doing other exercises. “Been out of the baseball routine for a while,” Hamilton said before the Rangers played their series inale against Houston. “The biggest thing now is to make sure the legs are in shape.” Royals starter Dufy demoted • The Kansas City Royals have sent struggling starter Danny Dufy to the bullpen. AL Central-leading Kansas City is going through its roughest patch this season with nine losses in 12 games. The lefthander hasn’t won since Aug. 25 and has gone six innings just once in his last six starts. Dufy lasted only 2 1/3 innings on Wednesday night, giving up four runs in a loss to the Indians. He’s 7-8 with a 4.35 ERA in 24 starts. Sydney to host tourney • A qualifying tournament with teams from Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and South Africa will be held in February for the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Baseball Australia said Friday that the sixgame tournament will be held from Feb. 11-14 at Blacktown in western Sydney, with the winner qualifying for the 2017 Classic. A host city or country for the 2017 tournament has not been determined, but it is expected to include 16 teams. Australia inished last in its pool in 2013, forcing it to re-qualify for 2017.

Holliday appears as pinch hitter Outielder still isn’t able to run at full strength BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-dispatch

MILWAUKEE • Every step outfielder Matt Holliday takes toward full strength and a starting role this month with the Cardinals is tempered by his misstep in July. The Cardinals activated Holliday from the disabled list at the beginning of the series in Milwaukee, though he did not appear in the series until the seventh inning Thursday night. He was limited to pinch-hitting. In his first atbat since late July, Holliday struck out. Holliday tore his quadriceps July 29 for a second time this season while trying to play under control, at less than full speed, and he and the team do not feel he’s ready to run without restriction now. That has the left fielder being cautious. “I’m not interested in getting hurt again,” Holliday said. “I’m not coming back before they tell me I’m out of the danger zone of re-injuring it. … The frustration has been that way for two months. It’s one of those things I can’t have myself rush it and go out there and hurt myself again. I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to go out there when I’m going to have to baby-it or run at 80 percent or not chase after a fly ball or not be able to go first to third. I don’t want to play in those conditions. It’s hard to control that in a big situation.” Holliday said there are “hurdles to clear” before he can play without limits. Two of the three days the Cardinals spent in Milwaukee, Holliday ran sprints and ran the bases. He still experiences some tightening in the right leg after such exertion. The Cardinals put him on the active roster in September because they can without taking away a spot from somewhere else. But he wasn’t available to hit Tuesday, and on Wednesday manager Mike Matheny elected to use Matt Adams against Kyle Lohse instead. Holliday has been, at most, a presence for the other team to consider. Matheny said he’s eager to get Holliday his swings. “No question about that,” the manager said. “We’re right in the middle of a dogfight (Wednesday) night and had an opportunity to throw Matt Adams, which is really the only spot we could have (used) Holliday. We’re trying to look for a good situation.” He added that it would be natural for Holliday and the team to be conservative with him given what happened in July with the re-injury: “When you learn a lesson you try to make the ad-

justments. I think that’s what we’re watching right now. It creates some hesitance on his part, understandably. We’ve got to keep listening to what his body is saying.” There is also what the calendar is saying. The Cardinals reach Wrigley Field Friday with 16 games remaining in the regular season. Holliday has been able to hit in the cage and take batting practice for almost all of his time spent recovering from the two quadriceps strains. He has his timing in batting practice, but getting it game speed before the postseason is another of the “hurdles.” “It’s hard to say when you’ve been out for the good part of two months,” Holliday said of how long it will take to get that swing.

in the ninth for his second consecutive three-hit evening. The series sweep in Milwaukee came at the same time the Cubs took three of four games from the Pittsburgh Pirates. That allowed the Cardinals to reclaim a five-game lead in the National League Central just three days after it had shrunk to its smallest in months. The surging thirdplace Cubs host the Cardinals this weekend for three days at Wrigley Field, looking to chomp into the Cardinals’ lead in the division and leapfrog Pittsburgh in the chase for the National League wild card. The Cardinals have won four consecutive games. Their series sweep was their first since Arizona in late August but only their third since the All-Star break. Lackey (12-9) halted a microskid for him with seven shutout innings and he surpassed a personal and financial milestone. Due to an unusual clause in his contract with the Boston Red Sox – one that protected his former team against a season Lackey lost to elbow surgery – Lackey has played this season on the major-league minimum of close

stuf like at-bats, point to some of the things that even a moderately trained eye could see. As far as what we know is going on behind the scenes all the time – the game-calling, the leadership – are all so valuable that there are days when we just try to get him rest.” Molina is definitely on the rest rotation. Jhonny Peralta and Kolten Wong have also been pressed into extended stretches of starts, and they have recently gotten their breaks. With a day game against the Cubs on Friday, a breather for Molina made sense Wednesday, five strikeouts or not. He was hitless in the series and is threefor-20 (.150) on the trip. Molina is less than 45 innings away from a career high behind the plate and is on pace to crack 1,200.

MOLINA GETS A BREAK Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, who has been stingy with his strikeouts since his early days in the minors, had played 1,461 games in the majors before Wednesday night and in only three of them had he struck out as much as three times. Wednesday was the first time in his career that he struck out four times in a single game, though that wasn’t the motivation behind his day of Thursday, Matheny insisted. “Just baseball. One of those days,” the manager said. “When he goes out there he makes a difference. You can point to easy stuf. Point to some of the easy

to $507,000. The veteran agreed that he would honor the contract before the Cardinals made the trade for him last July, though he and the Cardinals were both upfront about a wish to rework the deal. In late March, the Cardinals did, attaching a series of bonuses that would be worth nearly quadruple what his base salary was. With seven innings Thursday night, Lackey reached 200 innings and triggered another $400,000 bonus. He has reached $2 million in bonuses. He’s done that by being more than the Cardinals expected. With the absence of ace Adam Wainwright, it has been Lackey who has played steward to the young pitchers. Lackey’s Texas drawl has delivered some of the same lessons and encouragement that usually come from Wainwright’s Georgia wit. When Lynn had a particularly ugly outing earlier this season, it was Lackey that he gravitated toward and it was Lackey who told him that it was best just to forget the start and not spend too much timing thinking about it. On the field, he has mimeographed quality start

after quality start. Lackey approaches every game the same – goes out and slings strikes. The righthander completed his 25th quality start in 30 games on Wednesday. Two double plays helped him face the minimum through two innings, and by the time he left with the six-run lead he had limited the Brewers to five hits. Lackey struck out eight, including the side in the fifth inning. He needed just 88 pitches to get 21 outs. Lackey’s quick work was topped only by the lineup’s swift lead. On Wednesday, Pham hit two home runs and tripled to become the first Cardinals rookie to do so in the same game since ... Stephen Piscotty did last month. Pham and Carpenter had three extra-base hits apiece in the Cardinals’ 5-4 victory, becoming the first Cardinals teammates to flash such power in 10 years. (Albert Pujols and Hector Luna did it in Aug. 2005.) Responding to that kind of production, manager Mike Matheny stayed with Pham as a starter and moved him up in the order to hit behind Carpenter, at No. 2. In the first inning Carpenter singled, Pham tripled. In the third inning, Carpenter doubled,

Pham doubled. Each of the first two times Pham came to the plate, Carpenter was on base, and Pham promptly drove him home for his fifth and sixth RBIs of the series against Milwaukee. Carpenter doubled to center field to lead of the third inning and took third when Shane Peterson had a hard time getting a handle on the ball. That’s where Carpenter was standing when Pham hit the liner that dropped Nelson. Carpenter hesitated as everyone else did. The Brewers’ trainer didn’t know whether to run out while a play was still going on. Carpenter wasn’t sure whether to score. He eventually did, trotting home for a 3-0 lead. The game resumed a few minutes later, and the Cardinals added two more runs in the inning off sudden reliever David Goforth. But most of the eyes and the thoughts followed Nelson off the field and remained on him as the Cardinals completed the sweep. The Cardinals held their 6-0 lead into the ninth when Jean Segura’s hit a threerun homer of Mitch Harris, the third pitcher the Cardinals used to get three outs in the ninth.

to move, get up, something. The Brewers’ trainer wasn’t sure if he could rush the field while a play was still going on, and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny took two steps from his dugout in the direction of the mound before reminding himself it wasn’t his player, wasn’t his place. On the way to a series sweep of Milwaukee and an enriching night for starter John Lackey, the Cardinals, like everyone else gathered Thursday at Miller Park, stood petrified in the third inning as they waited for a pitcher, face down on the mound, to get to his feet. Nelson did, leaving the field on his own, lucid enough to whip a towel in frustration as he reached the inside of the Brewers’ dugout. “He was fortunate,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “It’s scary, for everybody.” Nelson, the Brewers’ 26-yearold righthander, was taken to a nearby hospital, where a scan of his head revealed a contusion, according to Milwaukee oicials. The starter was kept overnight at the hospital for observations.

Holliday appears as pinch hitter Outielder still isn’t able to run at full strength BY DERRICK GOOLD St. Louis Post-dispatch

MILWAUKEE • Every step outfielder Matt Holliday takes toward full strength and a starting role this month with the Cardinals is tempered by his misstep in July. The Cardinals activated Holliday from the disabled list at the beginning of the series in Milwaukee, though he did not appear in the series until the seventh inning Thursday night. He was limited to pinch-hitting. In his first atbat since late July, Holliday struck out. Holliday tore his quadriceps July 29 for a second time this season while trying to play under control, at less than full speed, and he and the team do not feel he’s ready to run without restriction now. That has the left fielder being cautious. “I’m not interested in getting hurt again,” Holliday said. “I’m not coming back before they tell me I’m out of the danger zone of re-injuring it. … The frustration has been that way for two months. It’s one of those things I can’t have myself rush it and go out there and hurt myself again. I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to go out there when I’m going to have to baby-it or run at 80 percent or not chase after a fly ball or not be able to go first to third. I don’t want to play in those conditions. It’s hard to control that in a big situation.” Holliday said there are “hurdles to clear” before he can play without limits. Two of the three days the Cardinals spent in Milwaukee, Holliday ran sprints and ran the bases. He still experiences some tightening in the right leg after such exertion. The Cardinals put him on the active roster in September because they can without taking away a spot from somewhere else. But he wasn’t available to hit Tuesday, and on Wednesday manager Mike Matheny elected to use Matt Adams against Kyle Lohse instead. Holliday has been, at most, a presence for the other team to consider. Matheny said he’s eager to get Holliday his swings. “No question about that,” the manager said. “We’re right in the middle of a dogfight (Wednesday) night and had an opportunity to throw Matt Adams, which is really the only spot we could have (used) Holliday. We’re trying to look for a good situation.” He added that it would be natural for Holliday and the team to be conservative with him given what happened in July with the re-injury: “When you learn a lesson you try to make the ad-

justments. I think that’s what we’re watching right now. It creates some hesitance on his part, understandably. We’ve got to keep listening to what his body is saying.” There is also what the calendar is saying. The Cardinals reach Wrigley Field Friday with 16 games remaining in the regular season. Holliday has been able to hit in the cage and take batting practice for almost all of his time spent recovering from the two quadriceps strains. He has his timing in batting practice, but getting it game speed before the postseason is another of the “hurdles.” “It’s hard to say when you’ve been out for the good part of two months,” Holliday said of how long it will take to get that swing.

The game continued in a fog; many of the Cardinals players were unaware of the positive report about Nelson until after they had completed the win. The Brewers committed three errors in the game, fell behind 5-0 in the same inning Nelson left unfinished, and didn’t score until there were two outs in the ninth. Lackey (12-9) was the main reason for the latter. Pitching with a lead, the Cardinals’ unrepentant strike-thrower threw seven shutout innings and struck out eight for his 24th quality start in 30 games this summer. Pham had his second consecutive three-hit game, and Carpenter homered for the second time in as many days. The victory gave the Cardinals (92-54) their first fourgame winning streak of the month and it coincided with the Cubs taking three of four in Pittsburgh. Three days after the Cardinals’ lead in the National League Central was the slimmest it had been since April, they had inflated it back to five games by sweeping Milwaukee. The surging Cubs (85-61), now in position to leapfrog the Pi-

stuf like at-bats, point to some of the things that even a moderately trained eye could see. As far as what we know is going on behind the scenes all the time – the game-calling, the leadership – are all so valuable that there are days when we just try to get him rest.” Molina is definitely on the rest rotation. Jhonny Peralta and Kolten Wong have also been pressed into extended stretches of starts, and they have recently gotten their breaks. With a day game against the Cubs on Friday, a breather for Molina made sense Wednesday, five strikeouts or not. He was hitless in the series and is threefor-20 (.150) on the trip. Molina is less than 45 innings away from a career high behind the plate and is on pace to crack 1,200.

MOLINA GETS A BREAK Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, who has been stingy with his strikeouts since his early days in the minors, had played 1,461 games in the majors before Wednesday night and in only three of them had he struck out as much as three times. Wednesday was the first time in his career that he struck out four times in a single game, though that wasn’t the motivation behind his day of Thursday, Matheny insisted. “Just baseball. One of those days,” the manager said. “When he goes out there he makes a difference. You can point to easy stuf. Point to some of the easy

Cards’ ofense backs Lackey in 6-3 victory CARDINALS • FROM C1

rates (87-59), host the Cardinals for a September series at Wrigley Field between archrivals that has playoff implications. Less than a week ago, the Cardinals couldn’t assemble the scattered pieces of their game against Cincinnati. Milwaukee brought out their best. “I don’t think anybody was panicking,” Lackey said. The firebrand veteran has been one reason why they haven’t. Lackey remained with the Cardinals for the 2015 season due to a curious clause in his contract with Boston that triggered an option, at the major-league minimum of $507,500, when he missed a season to recovery from elbow surgery. Before the Cardinals dealt for Lackey in July 2014, they received a promise he would honor the contract. The Cardinals, in kind, said they would do something out of respect for the veteran. The risk for Lackey, 36, was sustaining an injury at any point in the season and having no golden net — no extension, no salary above the minimum. In late March, the Cardinals

WAINWRIGHT RUNNING Way out in the right field corner, hours before first pitch, Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright went through a series of light running drills meant to mimic covering first base.

added incentives to his contract that would more than quadruple his salary based on his innings pitched. He triggered another of the $400,000 bonuses Thursday when, with his seven innings, he reached 200. “It’s a nice gesture,” he said. “Nice they showed they wanted me around.” Lackey allowed five hits and struck out eight, including all three batters he faced in the fifth inning on sliders. In the sixth inning, with two runners on base, Lackey kept the shutout in place by striking out Khris Davis with a 94-mph fastball. The early lead gave Lackey latitude to challenge the Brewers. Fresh from his two-homer outing Wednesday night, Pham remained in the starting lineup Thursday. On Wednesday, he and Carpenter became the first Cardinals tandem with three extrabase hits apiece in the same game since 2005, and Matheny moved Pham up in the lineup behind Carpenter for the series finale. Carpenter singled in his first at-bat. Pham scored him with a triple. In the third inning, Carpenter opened with a double, and took third on an error in the outfield. Pham drove him home with the double that felled Nelson (1113). Pham finished the series with

consecutive three-hit games and eight RBIs — all in two games. “Coming of an ugly couple of games of ofense (in Cincinnati), we were due to have a good run,” Carpenter said. “He was the MVP. That’s part of it. Hits come in bunches. You know that. This was an example of that. This series was an example of that.” The exit velocity of the line drive off Pham’s bat was 108 mph before the collided with the back of Nelson’s head. The ball caromed far enough into foul territory down the third-base line that Pham easily got to second. There, he took of his helmet and put his head in his hands. Nelson slowly got a seated position, and then walked of the field. Pham struck out in his next two at-bats, but said that had to do with the pitches and the strike zone, not any hesitancy on his part. He singled in the ninth. There was one Cardinal who didn’t see Nelson fall. It was one of the Cardinals who lives with that possibility. “I didn’t see it, luckily. I don’t want to see it,” Lackey said. “Said a little prayer. I don’t want to even talk about it.” Derrick Goold @dgoold on Twitter dgoold@post-dispatch.com

NOTEBOOK Bills limit RB McCoy Bufalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy practiced on a limited basis after experiencing tightness in the left hamstring he injured in training camp. Coach Rex Ryan doesn’t expect the injury to prevent McCoy from playing Sunday, when the Bills (1-0) host the AFC East rival New England Patriots (1-0). Ryan backed of on McCoy’s practice time Thursday after the player complained his hamstring felt tight. McCoy missed Bufalo’s final three preseason games after straining the hamstring Aug. 18. McCoy acknowledged feeling rusty in Bufalo’s 27-14 season-opening win against Indianapolis last weekend. He had 17 carries for 41 yards and three catches for 46 yards. Starting safety Corey Graham is scheduled to have tests Friday to determine whether he’ll be cleared to play after sufering a concussion last weekend. Patriots acquire WR Martin • New England acquired wide receiver Keshawn Martin from the Houston Texans on Thursday for an undisclosed draft pick. Martin, 25, was in uniform but didn’t play in the Texans’ season-opening loss to Kansas City on Sunday. In 48 NFL games, all with the Texans after being drafted 121st overall out of Michigan State in 2012, he had 38 receptions for 416 yards and three touchdowns. New England also released defensive lineman Khyri Thornton, and signed rookie wide receiver Chris Harper to the practice squad. Jets’ Cromartie sits out • New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie sat out practice for the second straight day, and quarterback Geno Smith was upgraded to limited for the first time since having his jaw broken by a punch from a teammate. Cromartie, who sprained his left knee Sunday against Cleveland, has not been ruled out for New York’s game at Indianapolis on Monday night. Coach Todd Bowles says the cornerback is “day to day, week to week.” Smith’s participation in some team drills Thursday is a sign of progress, although he’s still expected to miss the first four games. Packers RT Bulaga injured • Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga left Thursday’s practice after injuring his left knee and his status for this weekend’s game against the Seattle Seahawks was unclear. Before a bounce-back season last year, Bulaga had sufered season-ending injuries in 2012 and 2013. The team said only that he was limited in practice. Jones not hampered by hamstring • Julio Jones says his sore right hamstring is no cause for alarm. The two-time Pro Bowl receiver missed practice Thursday for the second straight day, but promises to be in the starting lineup when the Atlanta Falcons (1-0) visit the New York Giants (0-1). Coach Dan Quinn added there’s “zero” chance Jones will miss the game. Vikings celebrate stadium milestone • The Minnesota Vikings are celebrating another milestone in the construction of their new $1.08 billion stadium in downtown Minneapolis. The team and stadium contractor Mortenson Construction held a “topping out” ceremony Thursday — when the highest or last steel beam is placed in a building under construction. Construction oicials say the stadium is on schedule to be completed for the start of the Vikings’ 2016 season. Associated Press

coach and 20th full season as a head coach, this is quite the new trick. Fisher has never done this with any of his teams. “All of the research is showing us that it might make more sense to take some time of and rest and recover closer to the game as opposed to Monday, Tuesday,” Fisher said. “I don’t know what everybody else is doing in the league. This is just an in-house study that we’ve done.” Fisher hasn’t quite fully committed to it yet for this season. But all signs are pointing in that direction. “We’re always trying to do things differently,” Fisher said. “I considered it last year, and it just didn’t really fit with the staf. So I gave them the heads up during the ofseason that this is probably the direction we’re going to go.” Conventional wisdom has always been that players needed a couple of days of to recover physically from a Sunday game. So that meant Monday was a day for meetings and film review by the players, with perhaps a “corrections” walk-through to go over mistakes made the previous day. That was followed by a Tuesday off, with Wednesday and Thursday being the heavy practice days of the week. The Friday practice was a little bit shorter, and then Saturday was basically a much briefer walk-through session. Under the new setup, Tuesday is a light practice, perhaps half-speed and with an introduction to that week’s game plan. “I don’t ask them to get to full speed two days after (a game), unless we’ve got a Thursday game,” Fisher said. “So we kind of recharged (Tuesday) and we installed.” Wednesday remains a normal practice day under the new setup, followed by Thursday off, with Friday a little heavier than in the past, and Saturday more “jog-through” than the traditional walk-through. The Rams operated under a version of the new schedule last week, and it’s hard to argue with the results given the team’s 34-31 overtime victory over Seattle. “Players are good with it,” Fisher said. “They loved the schedule last week. They felt fresh going into the game. Had a lot of energy at the end, so we hope it carries over.” Perhaps the biggest adjustment is for the coaches early in the week. Under the old setup on Monday and Tuesday, when the players weren’t really around much and there was no practice, coaches used that time to formulate that week’s game plan, working from early morning until late night. That has to be adjusted now to a degree under the Tuesday practice format. “We’re gonna stay with it this week and then we’ll go from there,” Fisher said. “I think it’s gonna work. I don’t want to put anybody in a diicult position from a workload standpoint. ... But I definitely know that I feel confident that a day of on Thursday is really going to help to bring the players back as we near kickof.” The early reviews from the players have been favorable. “I think it’s gonna be good for us,” linebacker Alec Oglteree said. “Guys get to get their legs back up under ’em after going hard on Wednesday.” “I love it,” defensive tackle Michael Brockers said. “Of on Thursdays, I think it makes more sense. Close to the game, you get to get of your legs. ... It kinda showed Sunday. We were really fresh going into overtime.” If it weren’t football season, Ogletree would’ve been out fishing somewhere on a Thursday of. “I’m a country boy,” he said. “Bass. Catfish.” But in-season, a day off means coming to Rams Park anyway for a couple of hours, maybe getting a lift or cardio work in, or watching film with teammates. But again, no practice. No organized team meetings with coaches. “We’re mature enough now that on Thursdays, even though it is our day of, I can text the guys, and Chris (Long) can text ’em, and we can all get together,” linebacker James Laurinaitis said. “People are realizing we can get in here together, watch film as players for an hour, hour and a half, and really get some things done.” Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has asked his players to be more accountable, to take more ownership of what’s going on on that side of the ball. The informal Thursday film sessions is one example of doing just that. “People are having a lot of input on the game plan,” Laurinaitis said. “They’re asking the right questions, and it allows you to get your legs back two days closer to the game. It makes a lot of sense. If it keeps bringing results like we had Sunday, I’m all for it.” Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

NOTEBOOK Bills limit RB McCoy Bufalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy practiced on a limited basis after experiencing tightness in the left hamstring he injured in training camp. Coach Rex Ryan doesn’t expect the injury to prevent McCoy from playing Sunday, when the Bills (1-0) host the AFC East rival New England Patriots (1-0). Ryan backed of on McCoy’s practice time Thursday after the player complained his hamstring felt tight. McCoy missed Bufalo’s final three preseason games after straining the hamstring Aug. 18. McCoy acknowledged feeling rusty in Bufalo’s 27-14 season-opening win against Indianapolis last weekend. He had 17 carries for 41 yards and three catches for 46 yards. Starting safety Corey Graham is scheduled to have tests Friday to determine whether he’ll be cleared to play after sufering a concussion last weekend. Patriots acquire WR Martin • New England acquired wide receiver Keshawn Martin from the Houston Texans on Thursday for an undisclosed draft pick. Martin, 25, was in uniform but didn’t play in the Texans’ season-opening loss to Kansas City on Sunday. In 48 NFL games, all with the Texans after being drafted 121st overall out of Michigan State in 2012, he had 38 receptions for 416 yards and three touchdowns. New England also released defensive lineman Khyri Thornton, and signed rookie wide receiver Chris Harper to the practice squad. Jets’ Cromartie sits out • New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie sat out practice for the second straight day, and quarterback Geno Smith was upgraded to limited for the first time since having his jaw broken by a punch from a teammate. Cromartie, who sprained his left knee Sunday against Cleveland, has not been ruled out for New York’s game at Indianapolis on Monday night. Coach Todd Bowles says the cornerback is “day to day, week to week.” Smith’s participation in some team drills Thursday is a sign of progress, although he’s still expected to miss the first four games. Packers RT Bulaga injured • Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga left Thursday’s practice after injuring his left knee and his status for this weekend’s game against the Seattle Seahawks was unclear. Before a bounce-back season last year, Bulaga had sufered season-ending injuries in 2012 and 2013. The team said only that he was limited in practice. Jones not hampered by hamstring • Julio Jones says his sore right hamstring is no cause for alarm. The two-time Pro Bowl receiver missed practice Thursday for the second straight day, but promises to be in the starting lineup when the Atlanta Falcons (1-0) visit the New York Giants (0-1). Coach Dan Quinn added there’s “zero” chance Jones will miss the game. Vikings celebrate stadium milestone • The Minnesota Vikings are celebrating another milestone in the construction of their new $1.08 billion stadium in downtown Minneapolis. The team and stadium contractor Mortenson Construction held a “topping out” ceremony Thursday — when the highest or last steel beam is placed in a building under construction. Construction oicials say the stadium is on schedule to be completed for the start of the Vikings’ 2016 season. Associated Press

Fisher moves Rams’ of day RAMS • FROM C1

coach and 20th full season as a head coach, this is quite the new trick. Fisher has never done this with any of his teams. “All of the research is showing us that it might make more sense to take some time of and rest and recover closer to the game as opposed to Monday, Tuesday,” Fisher said. “I don’t know what everybody else is doing in the league. This is just an in-house study that we’ve done.” Fisher hasn’t quite fully committed to it yet for this season. But all signs are pointing in that direction. “We’re always trying to do things differently,” Fisher said. “I considered it last year, and it just didn’t really fit with the staf. So I gave them the heads up during the ofseason that this is probably the direction we’re going to go.” Conventional wisdom has always been that players needed a couple of days of to recover physically from a Sunday game. So that meant Monday was a day for meetings and film review by the players, with perhaps a “corrections” walk-through to go over mistakes made the previous day. That was followed by a Tuesday off, with Wednesday and Thursday being the heavy practice days of the week. The Friday practice was a little bit shorter, and then Saturday was basically a much briefer walk-through session. Under the new setup, Tuesday is a light practice, perhaps half-speed and with an introduction to that week’s game plan. “I don’t ask them to get to full speed two days after (a game), unless we’ve got a Thursday game,” Fisher said. “So we kind of recharged (Tuesday) and we installed.” Wednesday remains a normal practice day under the new setup, followed by Thursday off, with Friday a little heavier than in the past, and Saturday more “jog-through” than the traditional walk-through. The Rams operated under a version of the new schedule last week, and it’s hard to argue with the results given the team’s 34-31 overtime victory over Seattle. “Players are good with it,” Fisher said. “They loved the schedule last week. They felt fresh going into the game. Had a lot of energy at the end, so we hope it carries over.” Perhaps the biggest adjustment is for the coaches early in the week. Under the old setup on Monday and Tuesday, when the players weren’t really around much and there was no practice, coaches used that time to formulate that week’s game plan, working from early morning until late night. That has to be adjusted now to a degree under the Tuesday practice format. “We’re gonna stay with it this week and then we’ll go from there,” Fisher said. “I think it’s gonna work. I don’t want to put anybody in a diicult position from a workload standpoint. ... But I definitely know that I feel confident that a day of on Thursday is really going to help to bring the players back as we near kickof.” The early reviews from the players have been favorable. “I think it’s gonna be good for us,” linebacker Alec Oglteree said. “Guys get to get their legs back up under ’em after going hard on Wednesday.” “I love it,” defensive tackle Michael Brockers said. “Of on Thursdays, I think it makes more sense. Close to the game, you get to get of your legs. ... It kinda showed Sunday. We were really fresh going into overtime.” If it weren’t football season, Ogletree would’ve been out fishing somewhere on a Thursday of. “I’m a country boy,” he said. “Bass. Catfish.” But in-season, a day off means coming to Rams Park anyway for a couple of hours, maybe getting a lift or cardio work in, or watching film with teammates. But again, no practice. No organized team meetings with coaches. “We’re mature enough now that on Thursdays, even though it is our day of, I can text the guys, and Chris (Long) can text ’em, and we can all get together,” linebacker James Laurinaitis said. “People are realizing we can get in here together, watch film as players for an hour, hour and a half, and really get some things done.” Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has asked his players to be more accountable, to take more ownership of what’s going on on that side of the ball. The informal Thursday film sessions is one example of doing just that. “People are having a lot of input on the game plan,” Laurinaitis said. “They’re asking the right questions, and it allows you to get your legs back two days closer to the game. It makes a lot of sense. If it keeps bringing results like we had Sunday, I’m all for it.” Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

Green Bay set for rematch with Seattle Packers surrendered a 16-0 lead in January with Super Bowl berth on the line WASHINGTON POST

Call it another victim of “Deflategate.” The Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks played a memorably great NFC championship game last season in Seattle. But it was set aside quickly in the consciousness of the footballwatching public when a lopsided and otherwise forgettable AFC title game later that day between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts spurred months and months of scrutiny, debate, investigation and, eventually, a courtroom clash over the topic of under-inflated footballs. The Packers and Seahawks get together again Sunday night, this time in Green Bay, for a Week 2 rematch. The Packers can be forgiven if that has not put them in a mood to reminisce. “That was 2014,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers told reporters during his weekly media availability. “That was a diferent deal. We played up there. It’s diferent teams. Our personnel looks a little diferent. There’s really not a lot of carryover.” The Packers squandered a 16-0 lead in the Jan. 18 title game. They failed to recover a key onside kick in regu-

lation. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw four interceptions but persevered to connect with wide receiver Jermaine Kearse for the winning touchdown in overtime and prevail, 28-22. It was a game overflowing with odd and dramatic plays and with players, such as Rodgers and Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman, showing their grit by staying on the field while hurt. “We’ve had the opportunity as a football team — I think individually everybody’s had that opportunity — to go through last season. ... We’re focused on winning our first home game and getting to 2-0,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said at a news conference this week. It is the Seahawks who are scrambling as they arrive in Green Bay early in a season in which they are bidding to make a third straight Super Bowl appearance. They fortified their offense in the offseason by trading for tight end Jimmy Graham. But their defense is without holdout safety Kam Chancellor and they’re coming off a season-opening defeat at St. Louis. The mother of running back Marshawn Lynch took to social media to call of-

fensive coordinator Darrell Bevell “the worst play-caller ever” and write that he should have been fired. “It’s unfortunate. We’re real disappointed we couldn’t get off to a winning start,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said in a conference call with Green Bay-area reporters. “But that’s the way it is. We’ve got to bounce and come on back ... and face an amazing opponent up there.” The Seahawks’ confidence does not appear to be shaken, however. “I always feel like we’re good,” Sherman said in a conference call. “We’re a good team. We’ve just got to go out there and execute, do what we need to do to execute our game plan.” The game could be an early-season indicator of the balance of power in the NFC. But whatever happens Sunday night, it is unlikely to rival the drama produced when these teams last met. “I think I’ve been a part of 30-someodd losses as a quarterback,” Rodgers said. “So every one of those sticks with you. It’s frustrating when you put so much into it and you come up short. But it’s a new season. ... That’s just the way the NFL goes.”

delay sent Jason Day into the Conway Farms locker room, where his fellow competitors and chums tried out their best material. Among their questions, according to Day: “Are you playing of the ladies’ tees?” “Are you playing a diferent golf course?” “Is every drive downwind for you?” It’s all flattering, of course. In an event that features the best of the best — the top 70 on the FedEx Cup points list — Day has elevated himself into a category of his own. He is 10 under par at the BMW Championship, and his first round is not complete. The horn blew at 4:22 p.m. Central time, and the day’s play was called for good 48 minutes later. It will resume at 7:30 a.m. Friday with an all-time clifhanger: After bombing his drive 346 yards on No. 9, Day has a 44yard pitch from the right rough. If he holes it, he’ll become the seventh man to shoot a 59 on the PGA Tour. The last was Jim Furyk, who did it two years ago in this event at Conway Farms. Furyk’s round was considered one-in-amillion because no one else shot better than 65 on the day. The best completed score Thursday was a 6-under 65 by Daniel Berger, a 22-year-old PGA Tour rookie. He finished his round by holing out from 67 yards on the ninth hole, but from the left rough. So Day joked that they are “totally diferent shots.” Matt Kuchar shot a 67 and was stunned by Day’s score. “It’s amazing what he has done,” Kuchar said. “It was blowing a constant 20 miles an hour all day.” Day played with Jordan Spieth, who got overshadowed despite making a hole-inone and playing the other 16 holes he finished in 3 under. Spieth’s magical moment came on the 186-yard second. He struck a 7-iron and called out: “Be enough. Go! Go!” Good call. The ball landed shy of the green and bounced up before rolling in. Spieth high-fived Day and told reporters by the green that it was the fourth ace in his life and his second in competition (Puerto Rico, 2013). The others came when he was 14 and in a practice round at the Presidents Cup. Spieth said he was thrilled but probably not as much as the two sponsor-aided beneficiaries: a Washington state resident who will be awarded a year’s worth of mortgage payments and the Evans Scholar who gets a four-year free ride. “I’d be happy to help four times a round if I could,” Spieth said. Day also made an eagle, holing out from a fairway bunker from 79 yards on No. 1. “It landed perfect,” Day said. “Once it bounced up and started spinning, I knew it was going to go in.” This is Day’s world. Like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods before him, he’s playing a game with which few are familiar. He entered the BMW having won three of his last five tournaments: the Canadian Open, the PGA Championship and The Barclays, in which he closed 63-62. His massive drives Thursday included a 361-yard high draw on No. 3 that he followed with a pitch to 5 feet for birdie. His final drive of 346 yards was 23 longer than anyone else in the field on No. 9. As they walked up the fairway, Spieth told him he needed to hole his pitch for 59. Day was confused, thinking Conway Farms was playing to a par of 72, not 71. “I’m trying not to attach myself to a number,” he said. “Then I start thinking about the outcome, instead of just trying to rip my driver as far as possible down the fairway.”

is up for grabs at Solheim ASSOCIATED PRESS

Going into the Solheim Cup, both teams seem to be fighting for the status of underdog. The Europeans and Americans have both been trying to dampen expectations before the tournament gets underway Friday. It’s the biggest prize in women’s team golf and the U.S. can point out that Europe is playing at home and going for three in a row, having captured backto-back titles for the first time in 2013. But Europe team captain Carin Koch insists the past will have no bearing at all on this weekend’s competition at the St. Leon-Rot Golf Club near Heidelberg in Germany, and she pointed to the strength of the American team based on the rankings. “They’re so much higher-ranked than we are,” Koch said. “This is Solheim Cup 2015 and we start from scratch.” Veteran Scottish player Catriona Matthew agreed. “World ranking-wise their average would certainly be a lot higher than ours. They’re going to go in here as favorites,” said the 46-year-old Matthew, who will be making her eighth Solheim Cup appearance. Ten of the American players are in the top 40, while Europe has three, but Angela Stanford believes the Europeans’ point is moot. “People say, ‘on paper.’ Well, paper doesn’t play,” the 35th-ranked Stanford said. “When you get out on the course it’s golf and it’s match play, and absolutely anything can happen. And you can’t put on paper somebody’s heart. It’s hard to say (whether) there’s a favorite or not.” Both teams feature a mixture of youth and experience. Alison Lee, who played her way onto the U.S. team as an LPGA rookie this season, is the only newcomer on either team. U.S. captain Juli Inkster picked Brittany Lang and Paula Creamer to join automatically qualified Lee, Stanford, Stacy Lewis, Lexi Thompson, Cristie Kerr, Michelle Wie, Brittany Lincicome, Morgan Pressel, Gerina Piller, and Lizette Salas. Koch brought Caroline Hedwall of Sweden, Karine Icher of France, Caroline Masson of Germany and Matthew back to the European team with her four picks. They all played in Colorado in 2013, when Hedwall became the first player to win five out of five matches. She retained the cup for Europe by winning the 14th point. The rest of the European team is made of Suzann Pettersen of Norway, Charley Hull and Melissa Reid of England, and Gwladys Nocera of France, who qualified from the Ladies European Tour points list, as well as Anna Nordqvist of Sweden, Azahara Munoz of Spain, Sandra Gal of Germany and Carlota Ciganda of Spain, who earned their spots through their world rankings.

Broncos pull of stunning comeback Denver scores two TDs in inal 36 seconds to rally past Chiefs ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANSAS CITY, MO. • Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have beaten the Kansas City Chiefs every way imaginable over the years, from playof shootouts to defensive tug-of-wars. Well, not quite every way. Not until Thursday night. Denver cornerback Bradley Roby returned Jamaal Charles’ second fumble 21 yards for a touchdown with 27 seconds left, completing a stunning comeback in the closing minute for a 31-24 victory — the Broncos’ seventh straight over their AFC West rivals. “I’m not quite sure I’d ever been in one quite like that,” Manning said.“That was a new one.” Manning threw for 256 yards and three scores, the last to Emmanuel Sanders with 36 seconds left as the Broncos (2-0) appeared to force overtime. But on the next play from scrimmage, Charles was stripped by Brandon Marshall and the ball bounced right into Roby’s hands. The dramatic about-face came after Knile Davis gave Kansas City

The Broncos’ Bradley Roby (29) runs for a touchdown after recovering a ball fumbled by the Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles (25) on Thursday night.

(1-1) the lead with 2:27 left on an 8-yard run, raising hope among a sellout crowd that the Chiefs might finally end some curses. Instead, Denver won its 13th straight division road game, breaking a tie with the San Francisco 49ers (1987-90) for most in NFL history. And for one night, Manning quieted his growing doubters

by improving to 14-1 in his career against the Chiefs. Charles finished with 125 yards rushing and a touchdown, but he will only remember his fumbles — one in the red zone early in the game, the other deep in his own territory late in the game. “I have to be careful with the ball,” Charles said.“It’s my fault.”

Alex Smith threw for 191 yards for Kansas City, but also had two passes picked of. “We thought we had it won,” Davis said.“Unfortunately, they made the touchdown and it was our time to overcome and win the game, and we couldn’t finish. It was an emotional rollercoaster.” Manning threw a pick-six of his own, but he responded when it mattered the most. The Broncos took over at their own 20 after Davis had given Kansas City the lead, and the seventime All-Pro marched them calmly down field. Manning found Demaryius Thomas for three long receptions to get deep into Chiefs territory, then hit Sanders with a strike over the middle on thirdand-10 from the Chiefs 19 for the touchdown that kept Denver alive. “That last drive was really good,” said Manning, who joined Brett Favre during the game as the only QBs in NFL history with at least 70,000 yards passing. “I’m really proud of our young ofensive line — no poise issues, no communication issues.”

Day builds big lead at BMW before delay Underdog role Aussie goes to 10-under as weather halts play BY TEDDY GREENSTEIN Chicago Tribune

LAKE FOREST, ILL. • Thursday’s storm

Jason Day (right) laughs with Rickie Fowler before the start of their irst round of the BMW Championship on Thursday at Conway Farms.

Erectile Dysfunction (E.D.) When the “Magic Pill” isn’t so magic Erectile dysfunction (E.D.) affects more than 30 million men in the U.S. It is especially common in men with prostate surgery, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity. However, it is now possible to treat almost all men with E.D! E.D. undermines a man’s sexual confidence—but successful treatment can restore it! Many E.D. treatments are covered by most insurance and prescription plans. Attend a FREE seminar to educate men and their partners about approved E.D. treatment options. Partners are encouraged to attend. Featuring: Arnold Bullock, M.D. A urologist specializing in the treatment of E.D.

delay sent Jason Day into the Conway Farms locker room, where his fellow competitors and chums tried out their best material. Among their questions, according to Day: “Are you playing of the ladies’ tees?” “Are you playing a diferent golf course?” “Is every drive downwind for you?” It’s all flattering, of course. In an event that features the best of the best — the top 70 on the FedEx Cup points list — Day has elevated himself into a category of his own. He is 10 under par at the BMW Championship, and his first round is not complete. The horn blew at 4:22 p.m. Central time, and the day’s play was called for good 48 minutes later. It will resume at 7:30 a.m. Friday with an all-time clifhanger: After bombing his drive 346 yards on No. 9, Day has a 44yard pitch from the right rough. If he holes it, he’ll become the seventh man to shoot a 59 on the PGA Tour. The last was Jim Furyk, who did it two years ago in this event at Conway Farms. Furyk’s round was considered one-in-amillion because no one else shot better than 65 on the day. The best completed score Thursday was a 6-under 65 by Daniel Berger, a 22-year-old PGA Tour rookie. He finished his round by holing out from 67 yards on the ninth hole, but from the left rough. So Day joked that they are “totally diferent shots.” Matt Kuchar shot a 67 and was stunned by Day’s score. “It’s amazing what he has done,” Kuchar said. “It was blowing a constant 20 miles an hour all day.” Day played with Jordan Spieth, who got overshadowed despite making a hole-inone and playing the other 16 holes he finished in 3 under. Spieth’s magical moment came on the 186-yard second. He struck a 7-iron and called out: “Be enough. Go! Go!” Good call. The ball landed shy of the green and bounced up before rolling in. Spieth high-fived Day and told reporters by the green that it was the fourth ace in his life and his second in competition (Puerto Rico, 2013). The others came when he was 14 and in a practice round at the Presidents Cup. Spieth said he was thrilled but probably not as much as the two sponsor-aided beneficiaries: a Washington state resident who will be awarded a year’s worth of mortgage payments and the Evans Scholar who gets a four-year free ride. “I’d be happy to help four times a round if I could,” Spieth said. Day also made an eagle, holing out from a fairway bunker from 79 yards on No. 1. “It landed perfect,” Day said. “Once it bounced up and started spinning, I knew it was going to go in.” This is Day’s world. Like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods before him, he’s playing a game with which few are familiar. He entered the BMW having won three of his last five tournaments: the Canadian Open, the PGA Championship and The Barclays, in which he closed 63-62. His massive drives Thursday included a 361-yard high draw on No. 3 that he followed with a pitch to 5 feet for birdie. His final drive of 346 yards was 23 longer than anyone else in the field on No. 9. As they walked up the fairway, Spieth told him he needed to hole his pitch for 59. Day was confused, thinking Conway Farms was playing to a par of 72, not 71. “I’m trying not to attach myself to a number,” he said. “Then I start thinking about the outcome, instead of just trying to rip my driver as far as possible down the fairway.”

is up for grabs at Solheim ASSOCIATED PRESS

Going into the Solheim Cup, both teams seem to be fighting for the status of underdog. The Europeans and Americans have both been trying to dampen expectations before the tournament gets underway Friday. It’s the biggest prize in women’s team golf and the U.S. can point out that Europe is playing at home and going for three in a row, having captured backto-back titles for the first time in 2013. But Europe team captain Carin Koch insists the past will have no bearing at all on this weekend’s competition at the St. Leon-Rot Golf Club near Heidelberg in Germany, and she pointed to the strength of the American team based on the rankings. “They’re so much higher-ranked than we are,” Koch said. “This is Solheim Cup 2015 and we start from scratch.” Veteran Scottish player Catriona Matthew agreed. “World ranking-wise their average would certainly be a lot higher than ours. They’re going to go in here as favorites,” said the 46-year-old Matthew, who will be making her eighth Solheim Cup appearance. Ten of the American players are in the top 40, while Europe has three, but Angela Stanford believes the Europeans’ point is moot. “People say, ‘on paper.’ Well, paper doesn’t play,” the 35th-ranked Stanford said. “When you get out on the course it’s golf and it’s match play, and absolutely anything can happen. And you can’t put on paper somebody’s heart. It’s hard to say (whether) there’s a favorite or not.” Both teams feature a mixture of youth and experience. Alison Lee, who played her way onto the U.S. team as an LPGA rookie this season, is the only newcomer on either team. U.S. captain Juli Inkster picked Brittany Lang and Paula Creamer to join automatically qualified Lee, Stanford, Stacy Lewis, Lexi Thompson, Cristie Kerr, Michelle Wie, Brittany Lincicome, Morgan Pressel, Gerina Piller, and Lizette Salas. Koch brought Caroline Hedwall of Sweden, Karine Icher of France, Caroline Masson of Germany and Matthew back to the European team with her four picks. They all played in Colorado in 2013, when Hedwall became the first player to win five out of five matches. She retained the cup for Europe by winning the 14th point. The rest of the European team is made of Suzann Pettersen of Norway, Charley Hull and Melissa Reid of England, and Gwladys Nocera of France, who qualified from the Ladies European Tour points list, as well as Anna Nordqvist of Sweden, Azahara Munoz of Spain, Sandra Gal of Germany and Carlota Ciganda of Spain, who earned their spots through their world rankings. Web.com Tour Finals • Brett Stegmaier shot a 9-under-par 63 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the Web. com Tour Finals’ Small Business Connection Championship. Zack Fisher was second after a 65. He was 48th on the Web.com Tour money list. Ryan Spears, Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo, Australia’s Rhein Gibson and China’s Hao Tong Li were tied for third at 66. Li was 49th on the Web.com Tour money list, Gibson 33rd, and Spears 38th. Cosaerts matches record • Nicolas Colsaerts matched the European Tour record of eight birdies in a row Thursday on his way to an opening-round 9-under 63 to take the clubhouse lead at the Italian Open.

Training camp ofers chance for coaches to improve as well BLUES • FROM C1

will have made some changes. He’ll be watching much of the early days of practice from the stands, rather than being on the ice. He and his three assistants have determined a theme for each of the first four days of practice, and one member of the staf will be responsible for that day’s work. But there’s another message: If this team is to get better, it’s not just the players who have to do it. The guys in the suits do, too. “The first element here is the coach,” Hitchcock said at his desk at the Ice Zone in Hazelwood. “When you don’t reach your goal, everybody has to get better. So this is our first chance to get better. This is for us as coaches. We’re first out of the box. … This gives us an opportunity to get better. “Before we ask and demand of the players, we need to look in the mirror ourselves. What element of our game are we respon-

sible for that needs to get better? That’s what we’ve done and we’ve put it in place in training camp.” Hitchcock will run Friday’s opening session, which will be dedicated to team speed — “Straight tempo,” he said, “to try to get the skating and execution as high as we can on the first day” — which he identified on the day the decision was made to keep him around as the team’s most pressing area of change. After that, until the first exhibition game, the assistants will take over: first Brad Shaw, then Ray Bennett, then Kirk Muller, each running one day of practice, focusing on a subject that was identified in June. (Hitchcock wouldn’t say what each specific topic was other than his.) Each session will close with a scrimmage, and practices will include more game-like situations. “I don’t think you can evaluate close to the ice,” he said. “By sitting in the stands it’s like look-

ing at the game through video. I’m going to get a better read on players, on chemistry, on things I need to get a read on moving forward. That’s No. 1 for me. If we were just running practices, this would be diferent. But because we’re scrimmaging, I need to be able to observe.” As camp starts, much of the roster looks set. The two goalies have been determined, though who’s No. 1 will have to be fleshed out in camp, and the team appears to have seven defensemen in place. The only mysteries would appear to be at forward, where 11 of the 14 spots are spoken for (assuming, as Hitchcock has said, that Jori Lehtera won’t miss much, if any, of the season). That leaves five players — Scott Gomez, Scottie Upshall, Robby Fabbri, Ty Rattie and Magnus Paajarvi – for three spots. The toughest call likely will be if Fabbri is ready to play in the NHL or will be returned to the juniors;

Hitchcock has said that Fabbri doesn’t have to show he can beat anyone else out. He just needs to show he can play in the league. At the same time, experienced players such as Gomez and Upshall will get long looks. “If they’re coming in to try out,” Hitchcock said, “we want to give them every chance to make the hockey club. So that’s what we’re going to do. They’re going to have to earn it along the way, but we’re going to give them every opportunity. “We’re going to treat them like they’re signed players. We’re going to treat them like they come in, they make the team, we find a way to make room for them. Just out of respect for what they’ve accomplished by being able to play in the league, we want to give them a fair shake every day, first by who we play them with, secondly by how many games we play them. If they continue to play well, then we continue to move them up the ladder.”

BLUENOTES Friday’s practice at St. Louis Outlet Mall is closed to the public, but the sessions on Saturday and Sunday will be open. Practice on each day will go from 10 a.m. to noon, with a scrimmage starting at 11:15, and then again from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., with a scrimmage starting at 1:45. The Blues play their first preseason game on Tuesday, with a split squad game against Columbus. • Everyone is expected to be on the ice except for Lehtera (ankle) and Patrik Berglund (shoulder). • The Blues invited defenseman Stu Bickel to camp for a tryout. He played nine games with the Wild and 43 with Iowa of the AHL last season. Bickel brings the number of players in camp to 61: 37 forwards, 18 defensemen and six goalies. Seven of the 61 are in camp on a tryout basis. Tom Timmermann • 314-340-8190 @tomtimm on Twitter ttimmermann@post-dispatch.com

Training camp ofers chance for coaches to improve as well BLUES • FROM C1

will have made some changes. He’ll be watching much of the early days of practice from the stands, rather than being on the ice. He and his three assistants have determined a theme for each of the first four days of practice, and one member of the staf will be responsible for that day’s work. But there’s another message: If this team is to get better, it’s not just the players who have to do it. The guys in the suits do, too. “The first element here is the coach,” Hitchcock said at his desk at the Ice Zone in Hazelwood. “When you don’t reach your goal, everybody has to get better. So this is our first chance to get better. This is for us as coaches. We’re first out of the box. … This gives us an opportunity to get better. “Before we ask and demand of the players, we need to look in the mirror ourselves. What element of our game are we respon-

sible for that needs to get better? That’s what we’ve done and we’ve put it in place in training camp.” Hitchcock will run Friday’s opening session, which will be dedicated to team speed — “Straight tempo,” he said, “to try to get the skating and execution as high as we can on the first day” — which he identified on the day the decision was made to keep him around as the team’s most pressing area of change. After that, until the first exhibition game, the assistants will take over: first Brad Shaw, then Ray Bennett, then Kirk Muller, each running one day of practice, focusing on a subject that was identified in June. (Hitchcock wouldn’t say what each specific topic was other than his.) Each session will close with a scrimmage, and practices will include more game-like situations. “I don’t think you can evaluate close to the ice,” he said. “By sitting in the stands it’s like look-

ing at the game through video. I’m going to get a better read on players, on chemistry, on things I need to get a read on moving forward. That’s No. 1 for me. If we were just running practices, this would be diferent. But because we’re scrimmaging, I need to be able to observe.” As camp starts, much of the roster looks set. The two goalies have been determined, though who’s No. 1 will have to be fleshed out in camp, and the team appears to have seven defensemen in place. The only mysteries would appear to be at forward, where 11 of the 14 spots are spoken for (assuming, as Hitchcock has said, that Jori Lehtera won’t miss much, if any, of the season). That leaves five players — Scott Gomez, Scottie Upshall, Robby Fabbri, Ty Rattie and Magnus Paajarvi – for three spots. The toughest call likely will be if Fabbri is ready to play in the NHL or will be returned to the juniors;

Hitchcock has said that Fabbri doesn’t have to show he can beat anyone else out. He just needs to show he can play in the league. At the same time, experienced players such as Gomez and Upshall will get long looks. “If they’re coming in to try out,” Hitchcock said, “we want to give them every chance to make the hockey club. So that’s what we’re going to do. They’re going to have to earn it along the way, but we’re going to give them every opportunity. “We’re going to treat them like they’re signed players. We’re going to treat them like they come in, they make the team, we find a way to make room for them. Just out of respect for what they’ve accomplished by being able to play in the league, we want to give them a fair shake every day, first by who we play them with, secondly by how many games we play them. If they continue to play well, then we continue to move them up the ladder.”

BLUENOTES Friday’s practice at St. Louis Outlet Mall is closed to the public, but the sessions on Saturday and Sunday will be open. Practice on each day will go from 10 a.m. to noon, with a scrimmage starting at 11:15, and then again from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., with a scrimmage starting at 1:45. The Blues play their first preseason game on Tuesday, with a split squad game against Columbus. • Everyone is expected to be on the ice except for Lehtera (ankle) and Patrik Berglund (shoulder). • The Blues invited defenseman Stu Bickel to camp for a tryout. He played nine games with the Wild and 43 with Iowa of the AHL last season. Bickel brings the number of players in camp to 61: 37 forwards, 18 defensemen and six goalies. Seven of the 61 are in camp on a tryout basis. Tom Timmermann • 314-340-8190 @tomtimm on Twitter ttimmermann@post-dispatch.com

Fickenwirth listens to Lutheran South, Afton games from back yard BY DAVID KVIDAHL STLhighschoolsports.com

AFFTON • Steve Fickenwirth has

the best seat. It’s just not in the house. It’s on his deck. Fickenwirth, 60, spends Friday nights in the fall sitting on the deck of his detached two-car garage with a Punch cigar between his meaty fingers, a cooler of Busch nearby and the sounds of football cascading through his back yard. If he wants to change it up, he can move to the front of his house and hear another game. Fickenwirth has options. “On Friday nights on the front porch you can hear Lutheran South. If you sit back here you can hear Affton,” Fickenwirth said. “You can hear more when the leaves start falling.” Nestled between Weber Road and Laclede Station Road in Afton, Fickenwirth’s neighborhood puts him in a prime position to listen to both local high schools. It’s one of his many joys. “I can hear everything,” he said. “You hear the drums, the bands and the announcements. I listen to them. I like them.” A mechanic for the city of Richmond Heights, Fickenwirth is a raconteur in the truest sense. Big and burly, the 6-foot-3 Fickenwirth has a full, white beard and long hair he pulls back in a pony tail. With a twinkle in his eye and a bawdy vocabulary, Fickenwirth spins yarns that sprain grins. There’s the time he had drinks with Joe Walsh and Dan Fogelberg in Boulder, Colo. Another classic is when he and his friends sat behind Carlos Santana at Night Moves in Florissant to watch the Fabulous Thunderbirds. He took a ride in Linda Evans’ Lamborghini without Linda Evans in it (she was supposed to pick it up from the dealer in the next few days). He watched Super Bowl XVII in Los Angeles with “105,000 of the drunkest people you’ve ever seen.” Fickenwirth paid $75 for his ticket and sat in the end zone. Fickenwirth always has his eyes open for the next opportunity. He

used to rent a golf cart and take it to Soulard for Mardis Gras weekend. He’d charge people a few bucks to run them to and from their cars or to the bars. “You could make a couple hundred dollars doing that,” he said. There was a time when Fickenwirth was “Santa Steve.” He’d stop cutting his beard in July. By December it’d be down to his chest. He’d hit the local toy store and ask the clerks what was flying off the shelves. In his red suit with his jingle bells, Fickenwirth was a dead ringer for Kris Kringle. Good with his hands, Fickenworth can turn old bicycle parts or a cigar box into a guitar. He turned a flat-bed trailer into a portable living space. It has a stove, microwave, mini refrigerator, cofee pot, air conditioning and a full-size bed. “Everything but plumbing,” Fickenwirth said. Fickenwirth puts his mechanical intuition to use for the city of Richmond Heights. Anything mechanical that the city needs repaired, chances are pretty good Fickenwirth is putting it back together. “I work on anything from a chainsaw to a fire truck,” Fickenwirth said. “I fix stuf they tear up. I do general repair, everything but rebuild motors and transmissions.” A 1974 Lindbergh graduate, Fickenwirth went back to school

at age 42. With the help of Richmond Heights, he attended Ranken Technical College. The oldest guy in his class, Fickenwirth graduated in four years with a 4.0 grade point average. He never came close to that while at Lindbergh. “In high school I was a hippie,” he said. “I hung out in the smoking lounge.” Fickenwirth has a son, Jake, who’s 35. He was married for 11 and a half years before he and his ex, Brenda, split amicably. Now it’s just Fickenwirth and his dog, Holly, a rescue from Metro East Humane Society. Holly is mostly Treeing Walker Coonhound but could be confused for 112 pounds of walking nap. “Most people say ‘That’s the biggest beagle I’ve ever seen,’ ” Fickenwirth said.“She’s a lazy hound dog.” Fickenwirth is anything but that. Always building, always puttering, he used to sit in his back yard and listen to the football games in a lawn chair in the grass. One night he thought it would nice to have a deck. So he built one out of cedar. Now, no matter the weather, Fickenwirth can rest in comfort. With his dog by his side and a cigar burning in the ash tray he can enjoy the sweet sounds of Friday night as they echo through the neighborhood.

Fickenwirth listens to Lutheran South, Afton games from back yard BY DAVID KVIDAHL STLhighschoolsports.com

AFFTON • Steve Fickenwirth has

the best seat. It’s just not in the house. It’s on his deck. Fickenwirth, 60, spends Friday nights in the fall sitting on the deck of his detached two-car garage with a Punch cigar between his meaty fingers, a cooler of Busch nearby and the sounds of football cascading through his back yard. If he wants to change it up, he can move to the front of his house and hear another game. Fickenwirth has options. “On Friday nights on the front porch you can hear Lutheran South. If you sit back here you can hear Affton,” Fickenwirth said. “You can hear more when the leaves start falling.” Nestled between Weber Road and Laclede Station Road in Afton, Fickenwirth’s neighborhood puts him in a prime position to listen to both local high schools. It’s one of his many joys. “I can hear everything,” he said. “You hear the drums, the bands and the announcements. I listen to them. I like them.” A mechanic for the city of Richmond Heights, Fickenwirth is a raconteur in the truest sense. Big and burly, the 6-foot-3 Fickenwirth has a full, white beard and long hair he pulls back in a pony tail. With a twinkle in his eye and a bawdy vocabulary, Fickenwirth spins yarns that sprain grins. There’s the time he had drinks with Joe Walsh and Dan Fogelberg in Boulder, Colo. Another classic is when he and his friends sat behind Carlos Santana at Night Moves in Florissant to watch the Fabulous Thunderbirds. He took a ride in Linda Evans’ Lamborghini without Linda Evans in it (she was supposed to pick it up from the dealer in the next few days). He watched Super Bowl XVII in Los Angeles with “105,000 of the drunkest people you’ve ever seen.” Fickenwirth paid $75 for his ticket and sat in the end zone. Fickenwirth always has his eyes open for the next opportunity. He

used to rent a golf cart and take it to Soulard for Mardis Gras weekend. He’d charge people a few bucks to run them to and from their cars or to the bars. “You could make a couple hundred dollars doing that,” he said. There was a time when Fickenwirth was “Santa Steve.” He’d stop cutting his beard in July. By December it’d be down to his chest. He’d hit the local toy store and ask the clerks what was flying off the shelves. In his red suit with his jingle bells, Fickenwirth was a dead ringer for Kris Kringle. Good with his hands, Fickenworth can turn old bicycle parts or a cigar box into a guitar. He turned a flat-bed trailer into a portable living space. It has a stove, microwave, mini refrigerator, cofee pot, air conditioning and a full-size bed. “Everything but plumbing,” Fickenwirth said. Fickenwirth puts his mechanical intuition to use for the city of Richmond Heights. Anything mechanical that the city needs repaired, chances are pretty good Fickenwirth is putting it back together. “I work on anything from a chainsaw to a fire truck,” Fickenwirth said. “I fix stuf they tear up. I do general repair, everything but rebuild motors and transmissions.” A 1974 Lindbergh graduate, Fickenwirth went back to school

at age 42. With the help of Richmond Heights, he attended Ranken Technical College. The oldest guy in his class, Fickenwirth graduated in four years with a 4.0 grade point average. He never came close to that while at Lindbergh. “In high school I was a hippie,” he said. “I hung out in the smoking lounge.” Fickenwirth has a son, Jake, who’s 35. He was married for 11 and a half years before he and his ex, Brenda, split amicably. Now it’s just Fickenwirth and his dog, Holly, a rescue from Metro East Humane Society. Holly is mostly Treeing Walker Coonhound but could be confused for 112 pounds of walking nap. “Most people say ‘That’s the biggest beagle I’ve ever seen,’ ” Fickenwirth said.“She’s a lazy hound dog.” Fickenwirth is anything but that. Always building, always puttering, he used to sit in his back yard and listen to the football games in a lawn chair in the grass. One night he thought it would nice to have a deck. So he built one out of cedar. Now, no matter the weather, Fickenwirth can rest in comfort. With his dog by his side and a cigar burning in the ash tray he can enjoy the sweet sounds of Friday night as they echo through the neighborhood.

Harvick ready to ‘pound’ Joe Gibbs Racing Defending Sprint Cup champion has experience to take on NASCAR’s top team ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO • It didn’t take Kevin Harvick long to start nee-

dling the drivers standing in his way of a second consecutive title. The reigning Sprint Cup champion has heard all the hype surrounding Joe Gibbs Racing, which closed out the regular season with eight wins in the final 11 races. Harvick, with 10 second-place finishes this year, isn’t at all concerned with the JGR group. As the 16 drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship gathered Thursday to discuss the upcoming playofs, Harvick dismissed any notion that he’s got some work to do to catch up to the Gibbs group. “I wouldn’t consider us behind the Gibbs cars,” Harvick said. “I think we are going to pound them into the ground. That’s what I think.” Harvick has never backed away from a challenge, and he’s always used his confidence to his advantage. He loves to poke at his rivals in an attempt to rattle them and get them of their game. His attempt Thursday didn’t rattle JGR driver Kyle Busch, who is tied with teammate Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson for the top seed in the Chase, which begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. “I thought (trash talk) was supposed to be (said on) the Media Day before Homestead, not the Media Day before the Chase starts,” Busch said. He also said Harvick doesn’t do his trash-talking directly. “He won’t do it to our faces; he’ll just do it through you guys,” Busch said. “I’d really hate to see him blow a motor here the first week. That would be really, really bad.” Harvick, though, isn’t backing down from the Gibbs drivers. He noticed how all four Gibbs drivers raced each other hard during last weekend’s race at Richmond when Denny

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Kevin Harvick has 10 second-place inishes this season and is among the favorites to win the championship.

Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards stormed to the front of the field. Should they keep that intensity up, even when racing each other, Harvick thinks JGR could be in trouble. “Hopefully, they can beat themselves,” he said. JGR has done a good job of unraveling come championship time, and the organization has not won a Cup title since Tony Stewart won his second in 2005. Hamlin made it to the final round last year, but lost to Harvick in the finale. He acknowledged the Gibbs group is strong right now, perhaps a tick better than Stewart-Haas Racing, but his experience over this 10-race format gives him the edge. “I don’t know that we’re better than them. I think for us, it’s all about having the experience,” Harvick said. “It’s really not all about the fastest car. It’s about having the experience to go out and handle the emotions of 10 weeks and I think as you go into these 10 weeks, you have to put it all together and there’s a lot more than racing to handle.”

RESTART WOES There’s not a driver in the Chase field who doesn’t have questions about the way NASCAR is currently handling restarts, and the topic has been debated for more than a month. It flared again after Saturday night’s race at Richmond when team owner Roger Penske was irked that NASCAR didn’t penalize race winner Matt Kenseth for a restart against Joey Logano that Penske believed was illegal. “I’m not comfortable one bit with how they’re oiciating it,” Kyle Busch said of NASCAR. “I think they need to step in. I think it’s gone too long. It’s really stupid the way some of these restarts are being handled by the drivers.” Jeff Gordon said he didn’t see Kenseth’s restart, but suggested Kenseth wouldn’t be shy to jump the start because NASCAR doesn’t seem to take any action against the drivers.

“He knows they’re not going to call it, and until they call it, guys are going to continue to push,” Gordon said. “It’s mainly because the restart box isn’t big enough. If you make the restart box bigger, they’re not going to have to worry about calling that because now you can (go) anywhere in that box and get that edge you deserve (as the leader).” Kenseth agreed that the onus is on NASCAR. “I think that they need to probably make some calls, and then we’ll get everybody more honest,” Kenseth said. “When the second-place guy jumps the first-place car and it’s obvious, I think they need to make that call and then it won’t happen anymore. I think you make that call one time, two times, three times — whatever it may be — and it will stop.”

LOOK WHO’S 40 Jimmie Johnson planned to start his first day as a 40-year-old with a run along Chicago’s waterfront. Instead, he got talked into an impromptu celebration Wednesday night that had him feeling very much his age on Thursday. Johnson was feted by the other 15 Chase drivers during the traditional gathering of championship contenders and NASCAR executives. He was feeling the afterefects Thursday, his actual birthday. “I feel 80 right now, not 40,” he joked. Johnson put the blame on Clint Bowyer and Matt Kenseth for kicking of the birthday celebration. “I thought I was going to bow out early and go to bed, and had plans to go for a nice run or something on the boardwalk this morning, and between Bowyer and Kenseth, they talked me into my first drink, and with all 16 there, the energy kept going and a lot of fun was had,” he said. Bowyer, for his part, had a fuzzy memory of the evening. He had to be reminded Thursday that it was Johnson’s birthday, even though he’d been the ringleader the previous evening.

Top home improvements that help sell your home (StatePoint) While certain home upgrades provide obvious aesthetic enhancements, it’s important to ensure the projects are worth the expense. The following three home improvements provide especially impressive returns on their respective investments, making them excellent choices to consider with an eye on selling your home. Bath and kitchen Bathroom and kitchen renovations are great bets, according to the National Association of Realtors. However, ripping out these rooms and building them completely anew is an extreme expense that might not give you an immediate investment return. Instead, check out refinishing services, whose work can provide more value than a full replacement. For example, Miracle Method takes ugly bathtubs, countertops, faucets and other fittings and refurbishes them to look newly installed. This service will increase the useful life of those fixtures by more than 15 years, at a fraction of the cost and time of a replacement. In fact, company president Chuck Pistor started out as a very satisfied customer of this franchise. When he realized how efficient and economical the concept was for homeowners, he bought the company. Wash your windows Newly washed windows can make a huge impression on potential homebuyers. “The difference in the light streaming in and the overall impression of the home after a professional window cleaning is amazing,” says Rik Nonelle, president of Window Genie, a well-known window cleaning and window tinting franchise. Reaching those upper level windows for a good exterior cleaning can be tricky and dangerous to DIY, however. For a more detailed and precise job, consider using a professional service; it’s an affordable way to give your home a facelift. New floors New floors, particularly the latest in engineered flooring, are high in demand among potential home

A bathtub fixture before and after refurbishment. buyers. It’s no wonder since engineered flooring is comprised of wood layers stacked cross-grain and bonded together under heat and pressure — a process that makes them stain resistant and more durable where pets’ claws and children’s toys are concerned. “Today’s engineered floors have the beauty and durability of wood and are available in every color and style you can walk upon,” says Tom Wood, president of the popular mobile franchise concept, Floor Coverings International. “Investing in new flooring can dramatically increase the resale value of your home.”

With its mobile capability, a local franchisee of Floor Coverings International can bring up to 3,000 samples right to your door, a great convenience when you are in the process of updating your home for sale. Neutral tones, such as pale gray or a dark walnut stain, will make the home-selling process easier. Affordable home improvement franchises and cleaning services that offer great value abound. For those planning to sell their homes in the near future, considering each project’s return on investment is important when choosing which home upgrades to make.

Savor iner things in life at Fischer’s Manors of Pevely Farms Crisp breezes, vivid autumn foliage, clear blue skies — it’s a perfect day for a drive in the country. And you don’t have to drive far to experience some of the most gorgeous scenery in the metro region! Only 10 minutes west of I-270 and 35 minutes from downtown St. Louis via I-44, the historic Pevely Farms Dairy property has long been recognized for its awe-inspiring natural beauty — and since 1998, for its championship, Arthur Hills-designed Golf Club at Pevely Farms. In 2001, Fischer & Frichtel was among the original builders selected to offer custom homes in the development’s residential section and promptly sold out. This year, the respected firm was privileged to acquire 20 additional homesites and has made a triumphant return to The Manors of Pevely Farms. Secluded and tranquil, the privately gated community extends along a densely wooded highland with breathtaking

Richly appointed, the kitchen of Fischer’s display model at Pevely Farms. views of the Meramec Valley. Home settings in The Manors all exceed one acre in size and most either front or back to the golf course. Proving the enclave’s appeal, 20 percent of the new homesites have already been purchased and three magnificent residences are now

zoned HVAC and an impressive list of deluxe interior amenities. Ranch plans also include a finished lower level with a spacious recreation area and additional bedroom/bath suite, equally suitable for a home office. Another distinguishing feature is Fischer’s willingness to customize. “Purchasers in this price range expect — and deserve! — the freedom to personalize their luxury homes,” Chettle maintains, “and we include unlimited design time with the professionals in our Home Center to help owners adapt their preferred plans and make their color selections.” Open for touring daily in The Manors of Pevely Farms is a stunning “Nantucket II” ranch. The community’s gated entrance is located one mile north of the Lewis Road/I-44 intersection and Chettle welcomes inquiries at 636-429-2500. Photos, video, and complete details are posted on the builder’s website, fandfhomes.com.

under construction. “Customers choose to build here at Pevely Farms for a variety of reasons,” explained community sales manager Julie Chettle. “The golf course is an obvious attraction, but even more people are drawn by the spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife and elegant, resortstyle atmosphere. It feels like you’re way out in the country, but actually just minutes from everywhere!” Chettle added the Fischer & Frichtel name is another major factor, noting, “People in this area are thoroughly familiar with Fischer’s 70-year reputation for superior quality and have full confidence when choosing us as their homebuilder.” Future residents of The Manors select from the firm’s new Vista Collection — a portfolio of dramatic ranch and 1.5-story designs, starting from $589,900. All include 3-car, side-entry garages, generous applications of masonry on front elevations (per plan), James Hardie siding,
