‘A HORRIFIC SCENE’ FORMER MARINE KILLS 12 IN CALIFORNIA BAR SHOOTING • Gunman apparently took his own life • Handgun used in attack purchased legally • Deadliest U.S. mass shooting since Parkland BY KRYSTA FAURIA AND JONATHAN J. COOPER Associated Press

THOUSAND OAKS, CALIF. •

ASSOCIATED PRESS

People comfort each other as they stand near the scene Thursday in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where a gunman opened fire late Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with people on “college night.”

Terrified patrons hurled barstools through windows to escape or threw their bodies protectively on top of friends as a Marine combat veteran killed 12 people at a country music bar in an attack that added Thousand Oaks to the tragic roster of American cities traumatized by mass shootings. Dressed all in black with his hood pulled up, the gunman apparently took his own life as scores of police converged on the Borderline Bar and Grill in Southern California. The motive for the rampage late Wednesday was under investigation. The killer, Ian David Long, 28, was a former machine gunner and

Afghanistan war veteran who was interviewed by police at his home in the spring after an episode of agitated behavior that authorities were told might be post-traumatic stress disorder. Opening fire with a handgun with an illegal, extra-capacity magazine, Long shot a security guard outside the bar and then went in and took aim at employees and customers, authorities said. He also used a smoke bomb, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity. The dead included a man who had survived last year’s massacre in Las Vegas, a veteran sheriff’s deputy who rushed in to confront the gunman, a 22-year-old man who planned to join the Army, a freshman at nearby Pepperdine See SHOOTING • Page A7

Duck boat captain is indicted on 17 federal counts

BLAZE OF AUTUMN

BY ROBERT PATRICK St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted Kenneth Scott McKee, the captain of the duck boat that sank in Table Rock Lake in July — killing 17 — with 17 counts of misconduct, negligence, or inattention to duty by a ship’s officer. The indictment accuses McKee, 51, of Verona, Mo., of a series of failures that “contributed to and caused the destruction of” the lives of those on board on July 19, during a severe storm with wind speeds more than double the maximums for safe operation of the boat. Killed in the accident were a family of nine from Indianapolis and others from Missouri, Illinois and Arkansas, including 69-yearold Bill Asher and his girlfriend,

Trump administration tightens asylum rules ahead of caravans BY NICK MIROFF Washington Post

WASHINGTON • President Donald Trump’s administration introduced new measures Thursday to deny asylum to migrants who enter the country illegally, invoking national security powers to curb long-standing humanitarian protections for foreigners arriving on American soil.

The restrictions will invoke authority used by Trump to implement his “travel ban” in early 2017, according to senior administration officials who outlined them, and apply indefinitely. The measures are expected to face swift legal challenges. Immigrant advocacy groups insist that U.S. laws clearly extend asylum protections to anyone See ASYLUM • Page A11

Woman faces difficult battle in drug case in Dent County

Sale of Hawking’s wheelchair, thesis net more than $1 million

Defendant, professor decry public shaming by private firm TONY MESSENGER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

SALEM, MO. • Janice Bote is a drug ad-

dict. Don’t take my word for it. It’s right there in black and white on her court record. Eleven times since she was arrested in August, she has been tested for drug use by private probation company MPPS. Eleven times, MPPS has posted those results for all to see on CaseNet, the state’s public system for tracking court cases. Twice the results showed up as positive. Both times, the company charged Bote an extra $25 to send the test to a lab in California. One of them was confirmed. Now she has a warrant out for her arrest for violating the conditions of her bond release. It is part of the cycle that intertwines the criminal justice system with poverty in Dent and other rural Missouri counties that operate similarly. It works like this: You get arrested. Maybe it’s a misdemeanor like shoplifting, or theft. Perhaps it’s a felony drug possession charge. The judge sets a high, cash-only bail, that most poor people are unable to pay. After some time in jail, the judge agrees to lower your bond, but only on conditions that will be overseen by a private probation company. That company has a builtin financial incentive to keep you in the system. If you fail a test, or miss one, you end up back in jail and the cycle continues. “They make you jump through hoops,” Bote says, “and then they keep moving the hoops higher.” Until Aug. 12, when the South Central Drug Task Force busted down her door, Bote, 48, knew nothing of that system. She didn’t have a record. She hadn’t been

in jail. She was, however, using meth. It started after she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2014. “When I got cancer, I turned to meth as a coping mechanism,” she says. “I became an addict. That doesn’t make me a bad person.” According to court documents, she was found with about 1.5 grams of meth in her pocket. Her boyfriend, Bill Martin, had 4 grams. According to the probable cause statement, both Martin and Bote told police that Bote intended to sell some of the meth. She says that’s not true. “I never sold any dope,” Bote says. Bote, who grew up in St. Charles, was charged with two felonies, and locked up in the Dent County jail. A couple of weeks later, her bond was reduced, but only if she agreed to drug testing by MPPS, which provides the test results to the court, where they get posted without a hearing to determine their authenticity. For Brendan Roediger, a St. Louis University law professor, this practice, which he finds “despicable,” has the potential to violate a defendant’s civil rights. “There is no time prior to trial where it

is appropriate for anyone to just file evidence with the court. The court is not a repository for good or bad information about the client,” Roediger says. He compares the uploading of drug-test results without a hearing to a defense attorney discovering evidence beneficial to a client, and just filing it with the court without a written motion or any proper legal foundation. For Roediger, the issue is personal. The law professor is a recovering drug addict. He knows first-hand how public consumption of one’s drug history can have consequences. “I’ve been in recovery for 19 years and I’ve seen shame kill a lot of addicts, but I’ve never seen it keep someone clean,” Roediger says. The public shaming of Bote could also affect her ability to get a fair trial, says former Missouri Supreme Court Judge Mike Wolff. “Before trial, the defendant has not been convicted of anything, but when pre-trial drug tests are posted online, the judge will ‘know’ that the defendant is a drug user,” Wolff says. “How can the judge fairly preside over a case where that defendant is accused of a drug offense?” For Bote, the immediate consequence is that when she turns herself in, or is picked up on the warrant, she knows she’s going to jail, and will probably be there until her case is adjudicated. She’s not confident the court is going to give her a fair shake. Her court-appointed attorney, Wes Weber, is a former state trooper and sheriff’s deputy who worked for a drug task force. She’s not convinced that he is willing to take on the system. So she waits. And she frets. “I feel like they’ve already decided I’m guilty,” Bote says, “And I haven’t even had my day in court.” Tony Messenger • 314-340-8518 @tonymess on Twitter tmessenger@post-dispatch.com

The most recent allegation of sexual abuse in the investigation was from 1997 JEFFERSON CITY • Thirty-three priests or religious brothers in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City have been “credibly accused” and/or removed from the ministry over sexual abuse of minors, the bishop of the central Missouri diocese said Thursday. Bishop W. Shawn McKnight released a complete list of the names that followed an internal investigation begun in February. The list includes 25 priests from the diocese, three priests from other areas who previously served in the Jefferson City diocese, and five members of a religious order. Fourteen of the 33 men named are dead. Many of them are elderly. The diocese said the most recent case of physical sexual abuse found in the investigation occurred in 1997. He said only one man on the list was criminally convicted. “Although the incidents are in the past, the pain caused is still a present reality for the survivors of abuse and their loved ones,” McKnight said in a statement. He apologized for the actions of the priests and brothers, “and the incomplete transparency we have lived under by not making all their names public.” McKnight said an additional 18 allega-

tions have been made since August, and internal investigations into some of those claims are ongoing. He encouraged any additional victims to come forward. McKnight said the diocese has spent $2.3 million on survivors of abuse since July 2003 and $2.1 million on the care of “credibly accused diocesan priests.” David Clohessy, St. Louis director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, called the list “irresponsibly and painfully short on details.” McKnight “should reveal where each of these men worked, when they were

She says his comments on an “Access Hollywood” tape meant, “I can hurt you and get away with it.” ‘Big Brother’ participant arrested after she ‘lost it’ • A woman who appeared on the reality show “Big Brother” is accused of ramming the car of another woman who was in a relationship with her ex-boyfriend.

The report says Abbott told an officer she “lost it” because Morse was cheating with her child’s father.

A wheelchair used by physicist Stephen Hawking has sold for 300,000 pounds ($393,000), while a copy of his doctoral thesis fetched 585,000 pounds ($767,000), auctioneer Christie’s said Thursday. The motorized chair was used by Hawking after he was paralyzed with motor neuron disease. Proceeds from the chair’s sale will go to two charities, the Stephen Hawking Foundation and the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Hawking’s 1965 Cambridge University thesis, “Properties of Expanding Universes,” sold for more than three times its pre-sale estimate in the online auction. Diagnosed at 22 and given just a few years to live, Hawking instead died in March at 76. He expanded thinking about black holes and the origins of the universe and attained celebrity status, guest-starring on “The Simpsons” and “The Big Bang Theory.”

accused, when those allegations were deemed credible, why the years of secrecy, and where the men are now,” Clohessy said in a statement. McKnight told reporters that he was not “trying to hide something” by declining to say where the men had served. He said many of them had served in a variety of places. He said it would be misleading to report only where allegations were made and also said some victims asked him not to reveal that kind of information. The internal investigation is unrelated to an investigation announced in August by Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, in which the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, the Diocese of Jefferson City, the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau and the Archdiocese of St. Louis all agreed to open their records. Hawley’s announcement came amid renewed concern about sexual abuse by priests that followed the release of a scathing report in Pennsylvania citing abuse of more than 1,000 children by hundreds of priests since the 1940s, along with cover-up by church leaders. Mary Compton, a spokeswoman for Hawley, said that investigation is “active and ongoing,” but offered no timetable for when it will be completed.

Former sergeant on trial for killing dog claims self-defense BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-dispatch

chester, a self-described dog lover who once owned a beagle, fatally shot a neighbor’s 40- to 50-pound blue heeler mix on Oct. 4, 2017. It happened about 8:30 p.m. in Armfield’s driveway in the 400 block of Spring Meadows Drive. He shot the dog, named Ruger, as he unloaded his truck from a nine-day camping trip that included fishing and target shooting.

The 40-year county police veteran who retired in 2013 had a bench trial this week in St. Louis County Circuit Court on one misdemeanor count of animal abuse. Prosecutors say the dog didn’t provoke Armfield, who killed Ruger anyway to get him off his property. Armfield testified that the “vicious, menacing” dog bared his teeth, growled and cornered him near the entrance to his garage, giving him no choice but to shoot. “I was approached from the shadows,” Armfield testified in court Tuesday. “The dog continued to growl, it continued to bare its teeth. It was watching my every move. “I was as fearful as anything in my (police) career,” Armfield said. Ruger’s owner Jackie Dukart, who lives down the block in the 400 block of Ranch Drive, testified that she had rescued Ruger about six years earlier and that he lived with her and her longtime boyfriend toward the end of the street’s cul-de-sac. She said she let Ruger out that evening after returning from the grocery. Her yard is not fenced, but she said Ruger was trained with a shock collar to stay

on her prope r ty. R u ger wasn’t wearing the shock collar that night. She told Armfield the court she found Ruger limping up her driveway that night with blood oozing from his side. “‘Oh, my God, I think Ruger’s been shot,’” Dukart recalled screaming as she ran into her home to alert her boyfriend. She and her boyfriend, Bob Holtz, wrapped Ruger in towels and drove him to

a veterinary hospital, where he died of a gunshot wound from a .40-caliber hollowpoint bullet. In court, prosecutors displayed a photo of Ruger’s bloodied body on the examination table. “I hugged him and told him that it was OK to go,” a sobbing Dukart said. “He died while I was holding him.” She said Ruger was not aggressive and didn’t run loose in the neighborhood. Manchester police previously told the Post-Dispatch that the dog had run loose in the neighborhood before, but there had been no reports of him biting anyone. Armfield, along with a couple of neighbors, testified the dog did wander the neighborhood without a leash. At least one neighbor said that while he didn’t feel threatened by Ruger, he once saw Ruger roaming and armed himself with a golf club in case he needed to defend himself. Another neighbor testified that Ruger was not a nuisance. Some of the trial focused on Armfield’s police career, during which he developed and trained his department in crisis intervention for dealing with mentally

ill people. Armfield said he never fired his gun on duty. A police report of the incident says Manchester officers smelled alcohol on Armfield’s breath and also found a blood trail that indicated the dog was shot toward the center of Armfield’s driveway, not by the garage door as he told police. Armfield told his nextdoor neighbors who heard gunfire and came over that he shot the dog, but then he denied it to police. He admitted on the stand this week that he initially lied to Manchester officers by blaming a report of a gunshot on a blown electrical transformer. “I sincerely apologize for the lies,” Armfield said. “I know that was not proper.” Armfield’s lies are why his self-defense claim can’t be trusted, Assistant Prosecutor Craig Smith told the court Wednesday. “He had to make up these things,” Smith said. “He’s lying. He shot this dog — he killed Ruger on purpose.” Associate Circuit Judge John Newsham took the case under advisement Wednesday, saying he would issue a ruling later. If convicted, Armfield could face up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.

DIGEST UNIVERSITY CITY AND ST. LOUIS > Ribbon-cutting set for Loop Trolley • A ribbon-cutting ceremony heralding the start of service on the Loop Trolley is scheduled for Thursday morning, University City Mayor Terry Crow says. But whether the long-delayed line will begin operating that day has yet to be announced. “Now it’s down to a matter of days, not weeks,” Joe Edwards, the project’s longtime advocate, said Thursday of the starting date. Testing is finished, he said, and final paperwork will soon be approved by state and federal regulators. Crow said he and St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson will take part in the ribbon-cutting near the two cities’ border along Delmar Boulevard. The 2.2-mile, $51 million line will run

between the western end of the loop in University City and the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park. In its initial months, Edwards said, the line will run only on Thursdays through Sundays. It will start each day at noon and continue to 8 p.m. Thursdays and Sundays and to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. That’s because renovation of one of the line’s three operating cars has yet to be completed. Once all three cars are available sometime next year, the line’s days of service will be expanded, Edwards said. BRIDGETON > Contract approved for Highway 370 trail • A contract for a pedestrian/bicycle trail along Highway 370 over the Missouri River was approved by the Bridgeton City Council on Wednesday night. Earlier, St. Charles and Great Rivers

Greenway joined the plan for the $3.4 million project, designed to provide safer passage for people on bicycles or on foot across the Discovery Bridge. The pathway is to be completed next year. The 10-foot-wide trail will be protected by barrier from vehicle traffic and run from near Highway 141 in Bridgeton to near Third Street in St. Charles. It will be on the west side of 370, but allow access in both directions. It will tie in to the Boschert Greenway, the completed 4.1-mile paved Great Rivers project which runs from historic St. Charles near the river to the New Town development. Bridgeton’s cost in the new pedestrian/bike trail, called a shared use path, will be $50,000. Great Rivers Greenway is paying about $500,000, and St. Charles and federal and state grants the remainder.

Captain of duck boat on which 17 died is accused of misconduct, negligence

GOP selects next leader of Missouri Senate

BOAT • FROM A1

Rose Hamann, 68, both of the Affton area. The ages of those killed ranged from 1 to 76. The indictment Thursday says McKee failed to “properly assess” a severe storm both as it was approaching and when it arrived, entered the lake despite the storm, and failed to turn for the nearest shore when the storm hit. It also claims that he “caused or allowed” the boat’s side curtains to be lowered. Those curtains protect passengers from rain and wind but have been blamed for hampering an escape if the boat sinks. The indictment says McKee failed to raise the curtains and tell passengers to don life vests during the storm and when the boat’s bilge alarm sounded twice. He also failed to prepare to abandon ship both times the bilge alarm sounded and when there was “an unacceptable loss of freeboard on the vessel,” the indictment says. Freeboard is the distance from the water to the top of the deck, and decreases as a boat takes on water. McKee’s lawyer, J.R. Hobbs, wrote in an email that McKee would surrender himself and plead not guilty. Hobbs declined to comment on the allegations against McKee. U.S. Attorney Tim Garrison said in a news conference that the charge is sometimes known as seaman’s manslaughter. He said both the wind speeds and wave heights exceeded those for which the boat was rated. Court documents say that maximum wind speed was 35 mph and maximum wave height was two feet. Garrison said that McKee’s failures “individually or cumulatively” contributed to the deaths. “Our entire community was shocked and saddened by the loss of 17 lives in this tragic event last summer,” Garrison said in a statement announcing the indictment. Garrison said he was unable to discuss the status of the investigation, other than it was ongoing, and warned reporters that he wouldn’t comment on the potential for charges against “any other person or entity.” “This indictment represents the beginning, not the end of our efforts in this matter. We’re strongly committed to bringing this investigation to a conclusion as quickly as we can without sacrificing or compromising the integrity of this investigation. We owe that to the victims and the surviving family members of this tragedy,” and to the public, he continued. He said that prosecutors were in “constant communication” with the families of the victims.

The duck boat on which 17 died is brought to the surface of the water on July 23 at Table Rock Lake in Branson, Mo., next to the Showboat Branson Belle.

In a statement on behalf of her siblings, Asher’s daughter Jennifer Asher wrote that her family was relieved to learn of the indictment. “While it is tough to be reminded of the tragic ordeal, my brother, sister and I believe the government is taking its responsibility seriously to protect the public from these dangerous boats. My family does not want anyone to experience this sort of tragedy ever again. We believe there is more than one person responsible for the reckless decision to put the boat on the water that day. We believe the ongoing investigation is moving in the right direction and appreciate the government’s effort in seeking justice for our dad.” The seaman’s manslaughter charge says it also can be used against a boat’s owners and executive officers of a corporation if the corporation owns the boat. But Gregory F. Linsin, a Washington lawyer with experience in marine casualty investigations, said in an email that “would require the government to prove that he was at the time of the casualty responsible for the operation of the vessel and that he knowingly and willfully caused the misconduct that resulted in the death. This is a high intent standard which would require the government to prove that the executive officer acted knowingly and intentionally, with a specific intent to violate the law.” Perhaps the statute’s best known recent use was after a fatal 2003 Staten Island Ferry crash that killed 11 and injured dozens. The pilot who fell asleep before the crash was sentenced in 2006 to 18 months in federal prison on 11 counts of seaman’s manslaughter. The ferry’s director of operations received 366 days in prison on one seaman’s

manslaughter count and one count of making false statements to the Coast Guard after admitting that he failed to enforce a rule that required two pilots in the wheelhouse when underway. The Stretch Duck 7 case was referred to federal prosecutors by the U.S. Coast Guard in August. Also in August, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley sued boat owner Branson Duck Vehicles and Ripley Entertainment, which owned the Ride the Ducks attraction. The suit claims the boat was lacking foam or airtight compartments that could have kept it afloat and a bilge pump of sufficient strength. The suit also claims employees were aware of a severe thunderstorm warning, with potential 60 mph winds, and told McKee to skip the land portion of the duck boat tour so ticket holders couldn’t get a refund. Hawley’s suit says wind speeds reached 73 mph during the storm. In a court filing, company lawyers rejected Hawley’s claims, calling them “littered with factual inaccuracies and innuendo.” The accident also sparked lawsuits in state and federal court. Among the claims in the suits are that the owners and operators ignored the inherent danger of an amphibious vehicle, disregarded the safety of passengers, failed to train employees on safety procedures and failed to warn its passengers of the danger. The companies named in the suits and their lawyers have declined to comment on past suits. The lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.

Uber bars drivers from broadcasting recordings, months after St. Louis driver was exposed UBER • FROM A1

broke in the Post-Dispatch this summer. In July, the paper reported that Jason Gargac, a driver with ride-hailing apps Uber and Lyft, streamed some 700 of his rides live online without his passengers’ consent. Gargac exposed addresses, names and personal conversations about his customers’ bosses, spouses and children, all while an online audience watched on the website Twitch and commented in real time. Some viewers focused their comments on female riders and their bodies, and sometimes Gargac joined in. After Gargac was exposed, an Uber spokesman told the Post-Dispatch that the company would examine its policies, which at the time did not specifically ban the practice. On Wednesday, a spokesman said the company has changed its official guidelines for drivers recording passengers. An earlier policy stated only that drivers could record rides for safety, but should follow local privacy laws. The new guideline adds: “Broadcasting a person’s image, audio or video recording is a violation of (Uber’s) terms and may result in loss of account access.” The company also added that drivers are not allowed to use customers’ personal data for any reason other than transportation, and that disrespectful or unsafe conduct can result in revocation of their access. The new policy went into effect at the end of September, a spokesman said. The policy does not prevent drivers from continuing to use cameras for security purposes.

“Driver partners are responsible for complying with the law when providing trips, including privacy laws,” an Uber spokesman wrote in an initial statement. “Recording passengers without their consent is illegal in some states, but not Missouri.” The company ignored follow-up questions over the course of that week. It wasn’t until the day after the story was published online that the company removed Gargac and condemned his actions as a violation of company policies. Uber did not ban livestreaming or recording of passengers without their consent at that time. Instead, the company cited a part of its policies that prohibits inappropriate or disrespectful behavior by drivers, including comments on appearance or sexual remarks. The reaction to the video of the hockey players in Arizona stands in contrast. Shortly after the video began to circulate, Rob Khazzam, general manager of Uber Canada, posted a message to Twitter saying that the recording was a clear violation of Uber’s policies. “Filming or recording passengers without their consent is totally unacceptable and if reported/detected we will investigate and take action to preserve our communities privacy and integrity,” Khazzam posted. “In this specific case, we made efforts to have the video taken down.” An Uber spokesman confirmed Wednesday that the driver in the Phoenix recording has been removed from Uber.

An Uber spokesman said the company did not send alerts to all drivers about the change to the policy, but posted the change to the driver guidelines online. This week, the controversy over the hockey players’ ride put Uber’s new rules to the test. The video, which appears to have been taken by a driver using a dashcam, was posted online on both YouTube and Twitter, according to media reports. The original video has been removed, but it was copied and widely reposted by social media users and some media outlets. The footage from Oct. 29 quickly gained attention in sports and Canadian media for the players’ comments, including center Matt Duchene griping about team meetings. “We don’t change anything, ever,” he said. “So why do we even have a meeting? I haven’t paid attention in three weeks.” The players released a statement after the video began to spread online, and apologized to their coach. “Our private conversation was recorded without our knowledge or consent,” the statement said. Uber’s public response to the recording stands in contrast to how the company initially handled Gargac’s livestreams around St. Louis. Customers who learned they were being recorded had complained to the company. Some got $5 credits, but Gargac continued to work for Uber. When the Post-Dispatch first contacted Uber with questions about Gargac’s actions, the company released a prepared response simply noting the recording appeared to be legal in Missouri.

The Humane Society was contacted by the Harrison County sheriff’s office and visited the property early this week, finding 11 horses dead and in various stages of decay, the group said. Live but malnourished animals were in paddocks and pastures barren of vegetation, sometimes alongside dead animals. One living horse was in such poor condition that it was euthanized.

The owner surrendered 16 horses in the worst condition to the Missouri Humane Society. She kept three others, agreeing to provide them adequate food and care. It was not immediately clear whether she would face criminal charges. The horses taken by the Humane Society of Missouri will likely require lengthy rehabilitation before being made available for adoption, the group said.

DIGEST ST. LOUIS > Malnourished horses rescued • The Humane Society of Missouri said it rescued 16 malnourished horses Thursday from a property in the northern part of the state, where 11 dead and decaying horses were also found. The rescued horses, ranging in age from foals to 12 years old, will be brought to the animal welfare group’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, about 50 miles west of St. Louis in Franklin County.

oned Tuesday’s failed effort to raise Missouri’s gasoline tax is poised become the top-ranking officer in the state Senate in January. Sen. Dave Schatz, R-Sullivan, emerged Thursday as the Republican choice to replace Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard, R-Joplin, who is term limited. Schatz, 54, a businessman, will be formally named to the post in January when the new Legislature is sworn in. Schatz was first elected to the House in 2010. He moved to the Senate in 2014 and was reelected in Tuesday’s balloting with 64 percent of the vote over Democrat John Kiehne. During the spring legislative session, Schatz sponsored the legislation that put the gasoline tax increase on the ballot. The proposal, which failed, would have phased in a 10-cent increase in the state’s 17-cent per gallon fuel tax to help finance road construction and bridge improvements. As the leader of the Senate, Schatz said he hopes to work with Gov. Mike Parson on his agenda of workforce development and infrastructure improvement. The failure of the gas tax, he said, presents a problem for the latter. “We’re going to have to address that,” Schatz said. He also said he anticipates no significant changes in the procedures used in the Senate, which encourage debate and negotiation. “We want to make sure we maintain the traditions of the Senate,” Schatz said. “We hope to have great working relationships with both sides of the aisle.” Others vying for the top post included Republican Sens. Bob Onder of Lake Saint Louis, Ed Emery of Lamar and Mike Cunningham of Rogersville. Schatz said it took three ballots to pick a winner. After Tuesday’s election, the partisan makeup of the Senate and the House remained unchanged, with Republicans holding a 24-10 advantage in the Senate and a 116-47 majority in the House. Sen. Caleb Rowden, R-Columbia, was named to the No. 2 post in the Senate. Rowden, who is in his first term as senator after serving in the House, will take over as Senate majority floor leader replacing Mike Kehoe, who left to become lieutenant governor. Kehoe also was term-limited. Republicans in the House earlier nominated their leadership team, which includes Speaker Elijah Haahr of Springfield and Majority Floor Leader Rob Vescovo of Arnold. Rep. John Wiemann of O’Fallon succeeds Haahr in the position of House speaker pro tem. Wiemann, an insurance broker, is in his third term in the House.

3rd man sentenced in murder of cabdriver BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS • The last of three defendants

charged in connection with the fatal shooting of a cabdriver during a robbery in the Central West End was sentenced Thursday to prison. Shakur Ellis, 20, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for seconddegree murder, first-degree robbery and armed criminal action by St. Louis Circuit Judge David Dowd. The judge accepted a plea Ellis deal in August between the state and defense in the Sept. 14, 2016, shooting death of cabdriver Timothy Grice. A co-defendant, Jerry Reese, shot and killed Grice, 38, in his cab between 2 and 3 a.m. in the 4900 block of Laclede Avenue near Forest Park, according to court documents. His body was discovered in the taxi seven or eight hours later when someone reported to police that the vehicle had been parked there for a long time. Prosecutors said Ellis cooperated with homicide detectives and agreed to testify against Reese, who was sentenced by Dowd on Wednesday to 25 years in prison. Reese, 21, pleaded guilty to five felonies, including second-degree murder and first-degree robbery. Reese admitted pulling up behind Grice’s taxi, approaching the car and shooting the taxi driver in the neck before taking an iPhone and other items. In May, the judge gave Savion Smith, 24, a 15-year prison term after a jury found him guilty of receiving stolen property in a related crime. Grice’s father, Jim Grice, spoke at the sentencing hearings Wednesday and Thursday. He praised police, prosecutors and a victim’s advocate for their work but criticized Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner for spending more than $115,000 on what he described as weak cases against former Gov. Eric Greitens instead of focusing on the gun violence problem in St. Louis. He also mentioned the unrelated shooting of his son’s friend, Corey Hall, who was killed at Ballpark Village in April. “I think there needs to be a stand when it comes to gun violence,” Jim Grice said. On Thursday in court, Grice brought up Public Safety Director Jimmie Edwards’ recent proposal to increase mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes. Gardner has expressed concerns about the proposal. She also has defended her decision to prosecute Greitens. Joel Currier • 314-621-5804 @joelcurrier on Twitter jcurrier@post-dispatch.com

Hunter up to a six-year @joelcurrier on Twitter term but placed her into jcurrier@post-dispatch.com Missouri’s 120-day sex offender assessment program, which gives the judge the authority to release her depending on an evaluation by the Department of Corrections. The move angered prosecutors. Hunter is a former teaching assistant at King’s Day Care, 848 Kingsland Avenue. She was accused in 2012 of trying to force a boy, then 4 and 5 years old, to have sex with her six years earlier. The boy reported to social workers in 2012 that he had been sexually assaulted by a teacher there. Hunter, in the summer of 2006, took a boy into a restroom of the day care and forced him to remove his clothes and touch her genitals, authorities said. She also attempted to have intercourse with him. Jurors in April were shown a video of a police interrogation of Hunter in which she repeatedly denied sexually assaulting the boy but ultimately confessed after three hours. The defense argued that police coerced Hunter’s confession. The jury found Hunter guilty of one count of child molestation but was deadlocked on two counts of statutory sodomy. The jury recommended Hunter serve six years in prison. On Thursday in court, a furious Assistant Prosecutor Melissa Price Smith told the judge she would immediately dismiss the two pending sodomy counts and refile them within 24 hours so that the case could be heard “by a judge that respects the jury as fact-finder.” Watkins responded in court by saying her sentence did follow the jury’s recommendation and includes an assessment from professionals. Smith also read a statement from the victim, now 16, who said he disagreed with the jury’s recommendation that Hunter serve six years, saying it should be longer than that. He said he has lived in various boys’ homes and mental institutions, suffers from “trust issues” and even attempted suicide stemming from the abuse. “I feel like she deserves more time because I have spent a lot of time in and out of placements dealing with the trauma that she has caused me,” he wrote. At Thursday’s hearing, Hunter maintained her innocence. Her lawyer read letters from supporters and two friends spoke on Hunter’s behalf, saying BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-dispatch

DIGEST ELLISVILLE > City to pay more for trash pickup • Ellisville will be paying about $50,000 more next year to fund trash, recyclables and yard waste collection for its homeowners. The City Council on Wednesday night gave final approval to a one-year contract with Allied Services, doing business as Republic Services of Bridgeton, for a $602,976 contract. The firm was one of three bidding for the contract, and it has served the city since 2005. The city will pay about $553,000 this year, City Manager Bill Schwer said. The $50,000 increase in price from 2018 is due to recycling cost increases, he said. Ellisville covers the entire cost for homeowners’ trash and recycling collection. “China is not accepting as much American recyclables as in the past,” Schwer said.

For some it was not a new experience. Survivors and their relatives said several people who were at the bar had been at the country music festival in Las Vegas last year where a gunman in a high-rise hotel killed 58 people. “I don’t want prayers.

He heard another volley of shots once he was safely outside. “All I wanted to do was get as many people out of there as possible,” he told KABC-TV. “I know where I’m going if I die, so I was not worried.” A video posted on Instagram after the shooting by one of the patrons shows an empty dance floor with the sound of windows shattering in the background. As a silhouetted figure comes through a doorway, the camera turns and gunshots ring out. “I looked him in his eyes while he killed my friends,” Dallas Knapp wrote on his post. “I hope he rots in hell for eternity.” The tragedy left a community that is annually listed as one of the safest cities in America reeling. Shootings of any kind are extremely rare in Thousand Oaks, a city of about 130,000 people about 40 miles from Los Angeles. Mourners gathered for a vigil on Thursday evening as smoke from a fast-moving, nearby wildfire billowed over them. Earlier, people stood in line for hours to give blood. All morning, people looking for missing friends and relatives arrived at a community center where authorities and counselors were informing the nextof-kin of those who died. Many people walked past TV cameras with blank stares or tears in their eyes. Jason Coffman received the news that his son Cody, 22, who was about to join the Army, was dead. Coffman broke down as he told reporters how his last

words to his son as he went out that night were not to drink and drive and that he loved him. “Oh, Cody, I love you, son,” Coffman sobbed. Another victim, Alaina Housley, 18, was a Pepperdine freshman and the niece of actress Tamera Mowry-Housley. “Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her,” the family said in a statement. It was the nation’s deadliest such attack since 17 students and teachers were killed at a Parkland, Fla., high school nine months ago. It also came less than two weeks after a gunman massacred 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. Democratic Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom, in his first public appearance since winning office on Tuesday, lamented the violence that has returned to California. “It’s a gun culture,” he said. “You can’t go to a bar or nightclub? You can’t go to church or synagogue? It’s insane is the only way to describe it. The normalization, that’s the only way I can describe it. It’s become normalized.” President Donald Trump praised police for their “great bravery” in the attack and ordered flags flown at half-staff. Authorities searched Long’s home in Newbury Park, about 5 miles from the Borderline bar, for clues to what set him off. “There’s no indication that he targeted the employees. We haven’t found any correlation,” the sheriff said. “Maybe there was a motive for this particular night, but we have no information leading to that

at all.” Long was in the Marines from 2008 to 2013, rose to the rank of corporal and served in Afghanistan in 2010-11 before he was honorably discharged, the military said. Court records show he married in 2009 and was divorced in 2013. Authorities said he had no criminal record, but in April officers were called to his home, where deputies found him angry and acting irrationally. The sheriff said officers were told he might have PTSD because of his military service. A mental health specialist met with him and didn’t feel he needed to be hospitalized. Tom Hanson, 70, who lives next door to Long and his mother, said he called police about six months ago when he heard “heavyduty banging” and shouting at the Longs’ home. “Somebody has missed something here,” his wife, Julie Hanson, said. “This woman has to know that this child needed help.” Long was armed with a Glock 21, a .45-caliber pistol designed to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber, according to the sheriff. But it had an extended magazine — one capable of holding more ammunition — that is illegal in California, Dean said. Sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Helus and a highway patrolman arrived at the club about 11:20 p.m. in response to 911 calls, heard gunfire and went inside, the sheriff said. He was shot immediately, Dean said. The highway patrolman pulled Helus out, then waited as a SWAT team arrived. Helus died at a hospital. By the time officers entered the bar again — 15 to 20 minutes later, according to the sheriff’s office — the gunfire had stopped. They found 12 people dead inside, including the gunman, who was discovered in an office, the sheriff said. “There’s no doubt that they saved lives by going in there and engaging with the suspect,” said Dean, who was set to retire Friday. He praised the slain officer — a close friend — as a hero: “He went in there to save people and paid the ultimate price.” One other person was wounded by gunfire, and as many as 15 others suffered minor injuries from jumping out windows or diving under tables, authorities said. Five off-duty police officers who were at the bar also helped people escape.

Europeans ponder: Will ‘America first’ last? As Trump attends Armistice Day events, global leaders question impact of U.S. elections BY DAVID NAKAMURA Washington Post

PARIS • President Donald

Trump is set to arrive in the French capital late Friday for a weekend gathering with world leaders who are eager for signs of whether his “America First” agenda has longterm staying power. Trump has spent nearly two years reordering U.S. relations abroad, unsettling allies on trade and defense and reaching out to the authoritarian leaders of North Korea and Russia. While the Republicans’ loss of control of the House in the midterm elections could scuttle the White House’s domestic legislative agenda, it is less of a blow for the president on foreign policy. European leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron, who is playing host at an Armistice Day ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe on Sunday marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, have been mostly muted in their reaction to the election outcome. Foreign affairs analysts said the Europeans, bruised by Trump’s sharp-elbowed posture, are under no illusions that his tone toward them will change, despite the ballot box rebuke, and they are bracing for the possibility that Trump could be emboldened to take more confrontational actions abroad if he is hemmed in at home. At the same time, foreign officials will be trying to assess whether the change in Trump’s political power signals a potential, if not immediate, shift back toward a more traditional U.S. leadership role internationally.

‘WAIT AND SEE’ “The whole world is asking the same question about America — is this permanent or is this temporary?” said Thomas Wright, a Europe analyst at the Brookings Institution. The election outcome, with a divided Congress, means that question was not answered in the midterms, he added, leaving a full referendum on Trumpism “postponed until 2020. He could be re-elected but we don’t know and will have to continue to wait and see.” That uncertainty could

cast an uneasy mood on the festivities here, which Macron has promoted to serve as a reminder of the costs of the Great War at a time of rising populism across the globe that has disrupted the liberal international order that has long defined security in Europe. In addition to the ceremony, Macron has invited world leaders to participate in a Paris Peace Forum aimed at forging cooperation on shared global challenges, including climate change. But Trump is not expected to take part in the forum, another signal of the conflicting world view between him and Macron. They’ll hold a bilateral meeting Saturday to discuss areas of tension, including Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Iran nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Tehran, as well as the security situation in Syria and, potentially, trade relations. On the eve of the gathering, Macron signaled concerns among some European leaders about waning U.S. commitment when he floated the prospect of a combined European army to protect nations from China, Russia and “even the United States.” “When I see President Trump announcing that he’s quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim? Europe and its security,” Macron told Europe 1 radio, referring to the pending U.S. withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces agreement with Russia. Trump announced his trip to France after scuttling plans for a U.S. military parade in Washing-

ton on Veterans Day over costs and instead agreed to return to Paris, where he had joined Macron for a military parade on Bastille Day in July 2017. Trump had reveled in that display, but the ceremony this weekend will not include tanks and missiles, instead featuring a solemn display of remembrance involving more than 100 world leaders.

TRUMP PROUD TO REPRESENT At a news conference this week, the president touted the Armistice ceremony as a “great event” and said he was proud to be “representing the incredible he-

roes of the world (and) the heroes of our country from World War I.” Yet his itinerary remains relatively sparse. He and first lady Melania Trump will tour a pair of memorial sites to pay homage to American troops who died in battle. But the president has no other bilateral meetings scheduled, though he could speak informally with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a luncheon, aides said, mostly aimed at setting up a formal meeting at the G-20 Summit in Buenos Aires later this month.

‘HOPE OVER FEAR’ Frans Timmermans, the European Commission’s first vice president, declared that the outcome was a rebuke of Trump by voters “who chose hope over fear, civility over rudeness, inclusion over racism, equality over discrimination. They stood up for their values. And so will we.” In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel, who

has tangled with Trump, announced she would step down as chancellor when her term expires in 2021, in the face of opposition from the kind of right-wing, anti-immigrant forces that propelled Trump’s political rise. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said the continent would do well to respond to Trump’s “America First” line with “Europe United,” and said he hoped the Democrats’ return to power in the House would lead to greater cooperation from the United States in international affairs. “We’ll see to what extent that has an impact,” Maas said.

An age-old debate? Man, 69, wants to be 49 again Self-styled positivity guru tells a court it is just a number, should be fluid like a name BY MIKE CORDER associated Press

U T R E C H T, N E T H E R LANDS • Self-styled posi-

Dutch positivity guru Emile Ratelband discusses his legal request to reduce his age by a couple of decades on Thursday in Utrecht, Netherlands. Ratelband says that age really is just a number. A ruling is expected within a few weeks.

tivity guru Emile Ratelband thinks age is just a number. And the Dutchman wants his changed. The 69-year-old TV personality has asked a

court in the Netherlands to approve his request for a new birthday that officially would make him 49. Ratelband says his legal appeal is consistent with other forms of personal transformation that are gaining acceptance and government recognition in the Netherlands and around the world.

“With this free(dom) of choice, choice of name, freeness of gender, I want to have my own age. I want to control myself,” he said Thursday. Ratelband says he wants to avoid age discrimination in society — especially on dating websites. “So when I ask for a mortgage, for example, they say it’s impossible,” he told The Associated Press. “If I go on Tinder, then I get women from 68, 69 when women are there.” How about just being economical with the truth about his age? “I don’t want to lie,” he said. “I want to be myself, so don’t force me to lie.” M a r jo l e i n va n d e n Brink, who specializes in human rights and gender issues at Utrecht University’s law school, said age discrimination is a problem but is different than the issues involved in reassigning gender. “It’s quite clear that elderly people have a much smaller chance of getting a job than younger people,” she said. “But that’s just one element, and it’s only something that happens to you once you reach the age of 40, 45, 50, depending a bit on your job. “Whereas gender is something that follows you from birth to grave, and it determines nearly everything — and not just in the labor market but everywhere,” she said. In rare cases, even race has also become more fluid. In Britain, theater director Anthony Ekundayo Lennon has attracted attention in part because, despite being the son of white Irish parents, he has been mistaken for a mixed-race man. He has also written and told journalists that he thinks of himself as black. He says he was racially abused as a teenager because of his appearance, and when he started an acting career, he found it easier to pursue nonwhite parts. He also took an African middle name. Now some black artists are complaining because Lennon was recently given a paid traineeship in a program designed to give more black people a chance for careers in the arts. His case resembles in some ways that of Rachel Dolezal, a white woman in the United States who identified herself as black after she was raised by religious parents who had adopted four black children. She was working for the NAACP when her ruse was uncovered in 2015. Ratelband, the Dutch TV personality, says the Dutch government could benefit if it were to accept his age demand. He said he’d be happy to forfeit his monthly pension of around 1,200 euros ($1,370) — a concession he estimates would save nearly 300,000 euros ($343,000) over the 20 years he wants shaved off his age. The court in the central city of Arnhem is expected to issue a ruling in about four weeks. Ratelband, who makes a living urging people and businesses to be positive, denies that the age request is a publicity stunt. He claims he is seeking a personal positive effect. “Now I’m an old man. I have to save my money to give to my kids so that they can live,” said the father of seven. “But if I have that age again, I have hope again. I’m new again. The whole future is there for me again.”

LETTER FROM WASHINGTON

A tale of two Trumps and Missouri’s vote CHUCK RAASCH St. Louis Post-Dispatch

WASHINGTON • Here’s a big question facing the country over the next two years of a divided Congress, and Missouri has competing examples of how Republicans will deal with it: Will President Donald Trump be the “Art of the Deal” president and push quieter congressional negotiations, or will he be the “Make America Great Again” president of his raucous, my-way-or-the-highway campaign rallies? The president gave broad hints about which direction his instincts take him in an angry, post-midterm election news conference with White House reporters on Wednesday. He mocked Republican members of Congress who lost and hadn’t fully supported him. He suggested without proof that Senate Republicans would retaliate if Democrats who will control the House will, as they telegraphed, go after his tax returns and dig more deeply into his family’s business. He got into an ugly confrontation with his favorite media foil, CNN’s Jim Acosta, that led to the White House pulling Acos-

ta’s press pass, an unprecedented move in a century of White House press accreditation. That’s the red-hatted MAGA president full bore — relentlessly partisan, even to members of his own party, and relentlessly pushing an agenda that doesn’t portend for compromise with a House controlled by Democrats, even though Trump said nice things about the work ethic of prospective House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Still, some Democrats remain hopeful that Trump’s deal-making instincts eventually take hold. “I think there are some areas that we will reach out to the administration,” said Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis, whose legislative power grew as a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee that in 2019 will be controlled by his party. “Can we work on infrastructure? We know that it creates jobs, it is something that this country sorely needs as far as modernizing. “And here is what I know about (Republican Senate Leader Mitch) McConnell and Trump,” Clay said.“They like victories, too, OK?” How two very different Republicans in Missouri won tough elections — Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Ballwin, and Sen.-elect Josh Hawley — provide insight into how Republicans will react to whichever version of Trump predominates in a party whose congressional power has been cut in half.

Trump, unlike any recent president, went after fellow Republicans who had campaigned at a distance from him, and lost. Mia Love, the only black Republican woman in the House, narrowly lost Tuesday in a Utah suburban district similar to Wagner’s. Trump in the news conference chortled: “Mia Love gave me no love and she lost. Too bad, sorry about that, Mia.” Wagner survived without Trump’s help against the robust challenge of Democrat Cort VanOstran in a St. Louis area district that was prototypical of the Democrats’ targets of suburban women this election. Wagner did so by parsing her relationship with the president, siding with him when Trump signed bills she sponsored on sex trafficking and financial regulation, but not inviting him in to campaign on one of Trump’s many trips to the state. Wagner had greater national fundraising prowess and more substantial legislative accomplishments to take to voters than Love did, and that may have been the difference between the two outcomes. Wagner has a complicated history with Trump. Long unsettled by the GOP’s inability to attract more female candidates, Wagner in the 2016 campaign rescinded her endorsement of Trump after the “Access Hollywood” tapes surfaced of Trump bragging about how his celebrity allowed

him to sexually assault women. But then Wagner switched just before the 2016 election and said she would vote for Trump and urged others to do so. She’s taken a “when we agree, I’m with him” approach in Congress, eliciting criticism that she’s playing it two ways. But the strategy also led to her survival in a tough election environment. Hawley, meanwhile, campaigned hard and heavy with the president, mirroring his language on everything from protecting borders to the impact of the Republican tax cut. Trump campaigned twice with Hawley in the last five days of the campaign, but far from Wagner’s St. Louis suburbs. Will Hawley declare independence from Trump from time to time on issues or style, while broadly supporting Trump’s lowertax, less-regulation, and America-first foreign policy? Or will he continue that joined-at-the hip relationship? Former U.S. Sen. John Danforth, a critic of Trump’s style who helped persuade Hawley to run, believes the former is the best course. “I think it is possible to be a thoughtful Republican and at the same time be something more than the sort of outrageous approach of the president,” Danforth said. “It is very possible to be that.” Chuck Raasch • 202-298-6880 @craasch on Twitter craasch@post-dispatch.com

Berkeley man gets life sentence for murdering girlfriend BY JOEL CURRIER St. Louis Post-Dispatch

CLAYTON • A Berkeley man found

guilty by a jury in September of murdering his girlfriend and then dumping her body in a deserted Ellis Kinloch field was sentenced Thursday to life in prison. St. Louis County Circuit Judge Brian May sentenced Ray Ellis, 29, in the October 2016 disappearance and killing of 25-year-old Monica Sykes. The life term is calculated at 30 years with eligibility for parole after serving 85 percent of the term. But the judge also ordered him to serve 11 years for armed criminal action

LAW & ORDER ST. CHARLES > Man found dead in his front yard • A man was found dead in the front yard of his home here Thursday morning. The man was identified by police as Roy Cedric Nash, 64. Authorities did not say how Nash died, but the St. Charles Police Department asked for help from the Major Case Squad in the homicide investigation. Authorities said Thursday evening that they did not believe the crime was random. Officers were called about 7 a.m. to a home in the 1800 block of Willow Oak Drive, off of Fifth Street south of Interstate 70. Nash lived alone there, police said. Authorities asked anyone with information to call the Major Case Squad at 636-949-3300 or contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-3718477. Tipsters to CrimeStoppers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward. PINE LAWN > Suspect charged in fatal shooting • A St. Ann man faces murder charges after police say he shot a teenager early Sunday while they sat in a car for a gun sale. Jaquise Hopson, 18, of Jennings, was fatally shot in the 3700 block of Jennings Station Road. Near his body in the back seat of a parked car, police found four firearms, including an AR-15 rifle. On Wednesday, St. Louis County prosecutors charged Terry L. Parker III, 24, with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon. Parker, who has served prison time for a gun conviction in St. Louis, lives in the 10700 block of St. Bernard Parker Lane in St. Ann. Bail was set at $500,000, cash only. Hopson, the victim, had lived in the 8600 block of Boyce Place in Jennings. Hopson’s first name also is spelled in court records as Jacquise. ST. LOUIS > Driver accused of hitting federal agent • A driver hit a federal law enforcement agent with a minivan on Tuesday in the Tower Grove South neighborhood, charges say. Antione Hill, 34, was being held in lieu of $75,000 cash-only bail on charges of first-degree assault of a special victim (a law enforcement officer) and armed criminal action. The alleged assault was in the 3900 block of Fairview Avenue, in the Tower Grove South neighborhood. Agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were serving a federal arrest warrant for a Hill man named Antoine Morris. The agents were dressed in tactical gear that identified them as federal agents, according to a probable cause statement by St. Louis police Officer Jon Amesquita. The agents couldn’t find Morris at his home. Then a minivan pulled up, and the agents saw Morris in the passenger seat. Hill was driving the minivan, police say. The minivan stopped, and an agent approached the vehicle and “announced his presence,” police say. The agent then grabbed the minivan’s passenger-side door handle to get Morris out of the minivan, but Hill hit the

and two counts of tampering with evidence, to run consecutively to the life term. “You left a bunch of people in your wake,” May told Ellis. “But I don’t think your violent acts are going to define their lives.” Sykes vanished Oct. 28, 2016, from her home in Berkeley. Ellis’ Cadillac DeVille was found burning a week later, with a glove nearby that police said contained DNA matching Ellis’ brother, Jermaine Benjamin. The following February, after months of organized searches by police, trained dogs, relatives and residents, volunteers found Sykes’ body parts scattered about by ani-

gas and swerved toward the agent, police say. The agent was hit and suffered an injury when his shoulder went through the window of the sliding door of the minivan, Amesquita said. Hill sped off. He was arrested more than a mile away, near Tower Grove Park. Court documents did not say whether Morris was arrested or what charges he faced. Police say Hill lives in the 4700 block of Roxie Street in Northwoods. Court records also list an address for him in the 6200 block of Lorraine Avenue in unincorporated area of St. Louis County.

mals in a desolate area of Kinloch. It took weeks to confirm Sykes’ identity. Pathologists determined she had been shot in the back of the head. Prosecutors said Ellis had sat in his car for hours the night before Sykes disappeared, waiting for her to come home from a date with a Berkeley police officer. Authorities said Ellis later confessed to a friend that he killed Sykes and that he and Benjamin torched the car to destroy evidence because it had Sykes’ blood on it. At trial, Ellis’ defense lawyer said the police investigation was flawed by relying too heavily on a dubious confession to an unreliable witness. Sykes’ father, Leonard Sykes, told the

judge, “He treated her like trash. He still gets to live. She doesn’t. There’s no more tomorrow for her. There’s nothing left for her.” Sykes’ mother, Regina Sykes, has said her daughter had worked at Ol’ Henry Restaurant in Berkeley, studied early childhood education at Harris-Stowe State University and had hoped to take over her grandmother’s home day care. She said after the hearing that she feels relief and that her family got what it asked for. Benjamin, now 23, received a four-year prison term in May after pleading guilty to evidence tampering for helping burn the Cadillac.

ST. LOUIS > Teen is wounded by gunfire • A 15-year-old boy was dropped off at a St. Louis hospital with a gunshot wound to the arm Wednesday, police said. The boy told police he wasn’t sure who shot him or where. But he arrived at the hospital shortly after officers were called to the 2900 block of Cherokee Street for a reported shooting about 6 p.m. Police weren’t able to locate a victim or suspect there, but believe that is likely where the teen was shot. The location is on the border of the Benton Park West and Gravois Park neighborhoods. It wasn’t clear who dropped the boy off at the hospital. His condition wasn’t available, but police said he was stable. Authorities asked anyone with information to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-8477. BERKELEY > Highway worker hit by driver • A highway worker was struck by a hit-and-run vehicle on Interstate 70 early Thursday in St. Louis County. A customer service agent with the Missouri Department of Transportation said the worker’s injuries were minor. The worker was a contractor, not a MoDOT employee, she said. The worker was installing guardrail on the highway when he was struck about 1:30 a.m. Thursday near North Hanley Road, according to KTVI (Channel 2). The Missouri Highway Patrol says the Berkeley Police Department is handling the investigation. No one from that department was immediately available for comment. ST. LOUIS > Man gets 15-month sentence for fraud • A man from Chesterfield who started stealing from a store 12 days after being released from a halfway house on other federal charges was sentenced Thursday to 15 months in prison for identity theft, prosecutors said. William Davidson, 63, got a job at a store while completing a sentence at a halfway house. He had just been placed on supervised release when he began pretending to process the return of merchandise for nonexistent customers in order to obtain store gift cards, according to prosecutors and court documents. Davidson used another employee’s ID number, as well as a fake number, prosecutors said, and intended to get about $6,500 in gift cards. He used the cards to buy things for friends and relatives. He pleaded guilty in August to one felony count of access device fraud. Davidson still faces potential punishment for violating his supervised release on two separate cases: one involving lying to a judge to hide $480,000 and one involving charges of conspiracy to defraud, bank fraud, tax evasion and money laundering.

Trump administration cites ‘crisis’ for asylum limits; lawsuits are likely

Judges uphold ‘Dreamer’ program, setting up a likely high court battle BY ROBERT BARNES Washington Post

ASSOCIATED PRESS

A group of Central American migrants, representing the thousands in a caravan trying to reach the U.S. border, take part Thursday in an hourslong march to the office of the United Nations’ humans rights body in Mexico City.

who reaches the United States and expresses a fear of persecution, no matter how they enter the country. Administration officials said the Supreme Court has upheld the president’s executive powers on such matters and that the restrictions rolled out Thursday represent a reasonable response as the nation’s immigration system is drowning in what they called frivolous asylum claims by migrants who cross illegally. “Those who enter the country between (official) ports of entry — i.e. illegally — are knowingly and voluntarily breaking the law,” one administration official said. “So it’s just important to remind everybody that while all immigration laws do afford people various forms of protection, the reality is that it’s a violation of federal law to enter our country in the manner that these illegal aliens are entering the country.” Trump is preparing to issue a proclamation asserting the emergency powers, and the rule changes will be published Friday in the Federal Register, according to the officials, who spoke with the media in a conference call on the condition of anonymity. They did not explain why they could not be identified. These asylum restrictions mark the administration’s latest attempt to prevent immigrants and foreigners from entering the United States. Thursday’s announcement comes as an estimated 7,000 to 10,000 Central Americans move through Mexico in caravan groups. Trump has demanded tools to stop them from entering the United States and ordered the deployment of thousands of U.S.

eigners who arrive on American soil stating a fear of return can request asylum as a shield against deportation. A U.S. asylum officer then conducts an interview to determine if the person has a “credible fear” of persecution, in which case the applicant is typically assigned a court date and released from custody. Soaring numbers of migrants have entered the United States taking this administrative path in recent years, often crossing illegally to turn themselves in to U.S. border agents. Since 2014, asylum claims at the border have increased fourfold, adding to a backlog of more than 750,000 pending cases in U.S. immigration courts. The Trump administration’s new measures would allow foreigners to request asylum if they enter the country legally at U.S. ports of entry, but not those who cross without authorization, administration officials said. Under the changes, migrants who cross illegally would be ineligible for asylum, but they could be spared from deportation by qualifying for a “withholding of removal.” That does not provide a path to a green card or citizenship. Nonetheless, it would give those who cross illegally a way to get into the immigration court backlog and released from custody, especially those who are traveling with children. Qualifying for withholding of removal is generally more difficult, because applicants have to meet a higher standard of proof. One senior official said the purpose of the rule change would be to funnel asylum-seekers to ports of entry where the government will have more resources to process claims.

troops to back up border agents. “Our nation is experiencing an unprecedented crisis on our Southern Border,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement. “Low standards for claiming a fear of persecution have allowed aliens with meritless claims to illegally enter our country, claim ‘credible fear,’ and then in many cases be released pending lengthy proceedings.” Privately, Homeland Security officials acknowledge the measures, at least on their own, are unlikely to achieve the kind of immediate deterrent effect the White House desires. Detention capacity at U.S. immigration jails is nearly maxed out, and court-imposed limits on the government’s ability to hold children in immigration jails mean caravan families who seek protection are still likely to be released into the United States pending a hearing. “Congress very specifically said you can apply for asylum if you arrive in the United States regardless of whether you’re at a port of entry,” said Omar Jadwat, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Immigrants’ Rights Project. “They clearly and explicitly meant to make asylum available to anyone who reaches the United States. “We do this because of our obligations under international law and who we are as a country, and what we understand our role to be in terms of protecting people fleeing persecution,” added Jadwat, who said ACLU attorneys have been anticipating the new measures. “If the president doesn’t like what the law says, the way to address it is to get Congress to pass a new one.” Under U.S. immigration laws, for-

A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that President Donald Trump cannot immediately end the program that shields from deportation young immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children. The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit makes it more likely that the Supreme Court will settle the question. The Trump administration already has asked the justices to move quickly to add it to the docket for this term. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, based on the never-passed DREAM Act, was begun in 2012 by President Barack Obama, and has protected nearly 700,000 people brought to this country as children. The Trump administration moved to end the program in 2017 after Texas and other states threatened to sue to force an end to it. Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions advised the Department of Homeland Security to end the program, saying it was likely unlawful, and that it could not be defended in court. But a number of courts around the country have ruled the administration’s reasoning was incorrect, and have kept the program in place. Like the other courts, the panel did not question the administration’s power, but faulted its approach. “To be clear: We do not hold that DACA could not be rescinded as an exercise of executive branch discretion,” wrote Judge Kim McLane Wardlaw. “We hold only that here, where the executive did not make a discretionary choice to end DACA — but rather acted based on an erroneous view of what the law required — the rescission was arbitrary and capricious under settled law.” The panel of judges, all nominated by Democratic presidents, flatly rejected the administration’s position that courts lacked the power to review the executive branch’s immigration actions. “The government may not simultaneously both assert that its actions are legally compelled, based on its interpretation of the law, and avoid review of that assertion by the judicial branch, whose ‘province and duty’ it is ‘to say what the law is,’” Wardlaw wrote, borrowing the language of the landmark Marbury v. Madison decision. Wardlaw wrote that the Obama administration was within its powers to enact DACA because it had to make a choice about how to direct limited resources in deporting illegal immigrants, and decided to spare those so-called “Dreamers” who came as children, had not committed crimes and were students or in the military. “The reality is (and always has been) that the executive agencies charged with immigration enforcement do not have the resources required to deport every single person present in this country without authorization,” she wrote. And while the opinion does not purport to decide the wisdom on the policy, Wardlaw was clearly sympathetic. “It is no hyperbole to say that Dulce Garcia embodies the American dream,” is how she begins the opinion, telling the story of a 4-year-old brought to this country by her parents who now has a thriving law practice in San Diego. “Recognizing the cruelty and wastefulness of deporting productive young people to countries with which they have no ties, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced a policy in 2012 that would provide some relief to individuals like Garcia, while allowing our communities to continue to benefit from their contributions,” Wardlaw wrote. The panel’s decision keeps in place an injunction from the lower court that allows DACA recipients to renew their applications. According to California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, more than 187,000 people “have regained or extended their DACA protections as a result of the court’s injunction, and hundreds of thousands of additional Dreamers are eligible to do so.” The case is University of California Board of Regents v. Department of Homeland Security.

Jim Crow, revived It’s time to talk about a legislative response to GOP voter suppression.

I

t wasn’t the first time we’ve seen this lately, but Tuesday’s display of voter suppression was arguably the worst: Efforts around the country to block specific segments of the population from voting have likely never in post-Jim Crow America been more blatant. In a nostalgic tribute to the 1940s and ’50s, it’s become horrifically clear that the Republican Party now views voter suppression as a legitimate political strategy. It isn’t and must never be. And it’s time for both parties to discuss a modern-day version of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to protect the rights of all eligible voters. The Voting Rights Act knocked down nefarious state and local barriers — poll taxes, literacy tests — that racist officials had used to prevent African-Americans

from voting. Today, Republican-devised election procedures also serve to keep down minority votes, though now it’s the means to a more partisan end. Today’s voter-suppression efforts also target the young, the poor, the urban and others who tend to vote Democratic. Those responsible for this strategy don’t dare admit their real motives, so they falsely insist their concern is “voter fraud,” which doesn’t exist in any significant way in modern American voting. No matter. Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, a Republican running for

governor, refused to recuse himself from overseeing that state’s election, then purged voter rolls and engaged in other outrageous schemes — in the name of election “security” — designed to hurt his Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams. Kemp declared himself the winner in Tuesday’s vote even though Abrams is weighing a legal fight to challenge Tuesday’s result. In Kansas — home of that ultimate voter-suppression guru, Secretary of State Kris Kobach — Hispanic-majority Dodge City saw its only voting place moved out of town. That prompted a lawsuit, to which a key state voting official replied with a revealing “LOL.” (Kobach, who spearheaded President Donald Trump’s bogus voter-fraud commission last year, deservedly lost his own gubernatorial bid Tuesday.) In North Dakota,critics say a law requiring a street address to vote A Georgia poll was designed to disworker hands enfranchise thousands out stickers of the state’s Native to voters on American residents, Tuesday. who often have only a post office box number. Republicans passed the requirement after the narrow 2012 election of Democratic North Dakota Sen. Heidi AP Heitkamp. She lost reelection Tuesday. Texans can vote with a firearm-owner ID but not a student ID. Could the goal be more obvious? In Missouri, confusion over the state’s new voter ID law contributed to hours-long polling place lines. Multiple voter ID problems were reported in St. Charles County. How many voters finally gave up? Enough is enough. Members of both parties should recognize that deliberately skewing the rules to one side’s advantage threatens democracy. A national law is overdue to address official voter suppression head on.

yOUR VIEWS • LETTERS FROM OUR READERS Judicial retention policy should be re-examined Of the 29 St. Louis city and county judges up for retention on the Nov. 6 ballot, only one failed to be retained: Judge Judy Draper. Of the votes cast for Judge Draper, 48.2 percent were in favor and 51.8 percent were opposed to her retention. While the margin was narrow, the votes in support fell short of the percentage needed to keep one of the leaders in our community where she rightfully belongs on the bench. The loss of Judge Draper’s continued service to the court highlights the fact that while the NonPartisan Court Plan is generally Draper good, the judicial retention component of the policy is seriously flawed. When someone such as Judge Draper can be removed from the bench, even when 65 percent of the judge’s peers who work with her day-byday found her fit to serve, something is not right. The Mound City Bar Association, a nearly 100-year-old bar association that serves the needs of the community’s African-American attorneys and legal professionals, did what it could to help educate voters by highlighting each of the African-American judges who were up for retention and also educating the public with radio spots purchased on one of the local African-American stations. Funds for the radio spots were raised by a coalition of organizations (the bar association, Local 420 and the Ecumenical Leadership Council) who understood the importance of retaining all judges on the ballot. Unfortunately, these efforts proved not to be enough. An immediate examination of the Missouri Non-Partisan Court Plan judicial retention policy is in order. To ignore the retention policy shortcomings puts the St. Louis community at risk of losing members of the judiciary who are qualified and should continue to serve. J. Danielle Carr • St. Louis County President, Mound City Bar Association

McCaskill didn’t deliver a real progressive message As long as Missouri Democrats like Claire McCaskill think that the key to electoral success is to brag that she is not another “crazy Democrat” and that she supported President Donald Trump’s positions on issues almost 50 percent of the time, they will continue to lose. Republicans are the party of Trump and could care less about McCaskill’s warmedover McCaskill embrace of their positions. McCaskill burned through more than $30 million to lose by 6 percentage points to Josh Hawley, whose only claim to fame as a candidate is that he has sued to remove coverage for pre-existing conditions from medical insurance policies. McCaskill lost every county in the state outside of the St. Louis, Kansas City and Columbia metropolitan areas.

Perhaps if she had spent the time and money on delivering a real progressive message to young people, minorities and suburban women, the bedrock of the party, instead of town halls in areas of the state where she had no real support, we might have seen a different outcome. Meanwhile Cort VanOstran, a young, dynamic, progressive candidate, lost a close election to a Republican incumbent because he was strapped for cash. If VanOstran had access to even some of McCaskill’s leftover campaign funds, he would have won a seat that was well within reach for the Democrats. James Malone • Brentwood

Candidates should take down their signs immediately While it is bad enough to see the signs all over the place before the election, now we have to view them forever. It would seem to me that the candidates responsible for placing the large signs on fences and empty lots might keep a list of where they placed the signs and go back to remove them after the election. Please everyone, remove those signs. The election is over. Julie Griffith • Spanish Lake

Honor our veterans by finding them meaningful jobs Vets are disadvantaged when competing for jobs in the civilian market. BY SUE BHATIA

On Veterans Day, we not only need to honor our veterans, we need to help them find jobs. And not just any job, but one that will lead to a fulfilling and rewarding career path. According to a recent survey conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, among the 370,000 unemployed veterans in 2017, the majority are in their prime working years, with 59 percent age 25 to 54 and 4 percent age 18 to 24. It can be difficult for veterans to transition back to work after leaving their military lives, but it shouldn’t be this way. I personally realized I had to help when one overcast afternoon years ago, I found myself staring into the eyes

of an individual whose presence still haunts me. I was driving home from the office after a long day when I came to a stop at a busy intersection. Standing on the corner was a man in tattered brown clothes with gaping holes and garbage bags around his feet. The man was trying to keep warm while also holding a cardboard sign out to the cars that read: War veteran. Need a job! It was clear he was one of the more than 500,000 homeless in our country, of whom 40,000 are veterans. It pained me to think that unemployment was potentially one of the reasons he was living on the street. Before the light turned green, I made eye contact with him and realized at that moment that the system

that should have helped him succeed in life had failed him, and, in turn, had also failed all of us. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs suggests that veterans are less likely to fall prey to homelessness if they have a rewarding and stable job. But why is it so hard for vets to find employment and stay employed? There is no easy answer to this question, and there are numerous factors such as inadequate health care due to post-traumatic stress disorder and a shortage of affordable housing. A major one is the living wage factor: Vets are disadvantaged when competing for jobs in the civilian market. Although 80 percent of the skills used in military posts are directly transferrable to civilian jobs, it is hard for the applicant to describe these skills and for the employer to understand what skills are applicable unless they are described in layman’s terms. What can

we do to help? First, companies need to step up. Considering hiring a vet. Most have leadership and teamwork abilities, attention to detail and ability to work under pressure. I can’t think of a job that wouldn’t look for those qualities. Also, developing a formal program is important. Encourage your employees to get involved in your efforts to hire veterans. This may include setting up a resource on your website to help veterans in their efforts to find work, or encouraging employees to meet with veteran candidates and help them find a match for a position internally. Perhaps you can provide assistance through one-toone training and/or offer résumé-writing workshops customized for veterans. Often, veterans have many attributes that are impressive to employers but are intangibles in the sense that they are there, but hard

to concisely convey on a résumé. Once a veteran is hired, assign a team member to act as a mentor, with continual follow-up to provide guidance, support and feedback. If your company is not in a position to start a formal program, look into partnering with an organization where you and your employees can volunteer your time assisting in their efforts. Offer your employees a paid day for volunteering. All of us can help by getting involved and sharing information and resources that support our veterans in their efforts to find work. A few suggestions are: • The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (vets.gov/ employment). • Feds Hire Vets (fedshirevets.gov). • Veteran Employment Service Office (vaforvets. va.gov). • Vet Central (vetcentral. usnlx.com).

• Veterans Enterprise — also features a career fair calendar (veteransenterprise.com). • U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s “Hiring our Heroes” also features a career calendar (uschamberfoundation.org/hiringour-heroes). Correcting the systemic failure that can allow veterans to slip through the cracks is an obligation we as a society have to them. We need to proactively set up programs that make it easier for veterans to transition back to the workforce and find jobs they stay in, and grow in. We need to collectively prevent veterans from succumbing to similar difficulties as the man I saw at that intersection years ago, whose unnecessary suffering still haunts me. Sue Bhatia is founder and chairwoman of St. Louis-based Rose International.

You can’t always get what you want For the first time in his misbegotten presidency, Donald Trump now faces accountability. LEONARD PITTS Miami Herald

You can’t always get what you want. So said the philosopher Mick Jagger. He said it in 1969, so obviously, he didn’t intend it as a comment on the 2018 midterms. But progressives might be forgiven for thinking otherwise. After all, they wanted Andrew Gillum to become Florida’s first AfricanAmerican governor. They didn’t get it. They wanted Stacey Abrams of Georgia to become the nation’s first female African-American governor. They didn’t get it, pending a possible runoff. They wanted the inspiring Beto O’Rourke to unseat the depressing Ted Cruz as senator from Texas. They didn’t get it. Most of all, progressives wanted a clear rebuke of the moral abomination that is Donald Trump. They didn’t get that, either. Instead, the midterms went a long way toward proving that Trump’s rise to power and the intolerance that fueled it were no aberration. Consider that before the election, Trump declared himself a “nationalist” and issued an anti-immigrant commercial so racist it was even pulled by Fox “News.” And that Rep. Steve King of Iowa criticized diversity during an interview with an Austrian political party with actual ties to actual Nazis. And that the GOP trotted out one voter suppression scheme after another, each more odious

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

than the last. Then, consider that Republican voters were OK with all of it. As a synagogue in Pittsburgh was mourning victims of an anti-Semitic massacre, as a town near Louisville was laying to rest victims of a racist shooting, GOP voters gave thumbsup to bare-knuckle bigotry and naked intolerance

straight out of the 1940s. Of all the things progressives wanted but did not get Tuesday, a clear rejection of that hatred may be the most troubling. But in mourning overmuch the things they did not get, progressives would risk failing to appreciate all the things they did. And that would be a mistake. They wanted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. They got it. They wanted to restore voting rights to more than a million former felons in Florida. They got it. They wanted to win gubernatorial races. They got it. They wanted to pass an initiative making it easier to vote in Michigan. They got it. They wanted to make the political landscape more colorful, more female, more Muslim, more LGBTQ. They got it. Most of all, they wanted to retake the House of Representatives. They got that, too. Which means that, for the first time in his misbegotten presidency — likely the first time in his misbegotten life — Donald Trump now faces accountability. No more lying and lawbreaking while a bunch of invertebrates calling themselves a Congress look the other way. “Process server” is about to be a growth industry in Washington. So any progressives dispirited by Jagger’s wisdom might do well to recall the rest of this lyric: “You can’t always get what you want,” he sang, “but if you try sometimes, you just might find you get what you need.” And while progressives didn’t get all they wanted, they got enough to help ensure so-called conservatives and their so-called president cannot just walk all over us on the way to doing whatever godawful thing they want to do. Yes, a better country AP would’ve reduced Trumpism to rubble. Unfortunately, here in this country, you and I must still deal with the forces of ignorance and intolerance Trump has unleashed. But here’s the thing: Now they have to deal with us, too. Leonard Pitts Jr. lpitts@miamiherald.com Copyright The Miami Herald Distributed by Tribune Content Agency

President Donald Trump arrives to speak at a rally at the Show Me Center Monday in Cape Girardeau.

Trump has ripped open old wounds that threaten the unity of our country The president’s final political appeal was both Trumpism and racism unadulterated. MICHAEL GERSON Washington Post

In the spirit of the political season, I want to claim credit for the most STUPENDOUS, INSIGHTFUL and POWERFUL political strategy since Pericles bound the DELIAN LEAGUE into an empire to resist THE PERSIANS. I urged voters to support reasonable Republican candidates in the Senate, and to vote for every Democrat in House races. And the country rose up in TOTAL VINDICATION of my IDEOLOGICALLY INCOHERENT but PERFECTLY PRACTICAL suggestion for strategic voting. Judged purely by its outcome, the 2018 midterm election was significantly north of acceptable. Any evening in which future former congressman David Brat and appears-tobe-ousted Dana Rohrabacher — who help constitute the right wing of GOP lunacy — feel dejected is emotionally satisfying. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives will be a check on an administration in desperate need of checking. At the same time, the Senate will continue its originalist shift in the federal courts — the support of which separates conservative Never Trumpers from those who have simply become liberals. With an economic growth rate above 3 percent, and an unemployment rate below 4 percent, and a relatively peaceful world — and following a Supreme Court nomination battle that rallied and united the GOP — the president and his party lost control of the House. The #MeToo movement rolled along, bringing the voices of younger women to Washington. Democrats carried independent

voters. The “blue wall” was partially reconstructed in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. It was, by any standard, a major defeat for the Republican Party. Or, as Donald Trump calls it, a major victory. But this acceptable midterm outcome disguised disturbing trends — like a patient who is entirely healthy except for a touch of leukemia. Trump’s final political appeal — literally warning that brown people were invading the country and promising they would be shot — was both Trumpism and racism unadulterated. His base of support — millions of people, skewing white and male — found this message compelling. When he called his former alleged mistress a “horseface,” or separated migrant children from their parents, or rounded up migrant children in a desert prison camp, his supporters responded “Hell yeah!” in sports bars and (God help us) evangelical churches across Trump country. They did this because Trump talks like them, and tells it like it is, and defies political correctness, and doesn’t take any crap from anyone — some of the most insipid justifications in the history of American populism. These explanations make Free Silver look like a compelling cause in comparison. No serious political prognosticator — and there are a few — thinks that this appeal to this group of shrinking voters can possibly win national elections 10 or 20 years from now. By making the GOP the party of misogyny, anger and bigotry, Trump is systematically alienating large and growing portions of the electorate. He is dividing old from young, and white from minority, and men from women, and rural from urban. And when Republicans are left with a political coalition concentrated among

aging, paunchy, male Caucasians (my demographic group), Trump will be long gone from politics. Like many narcissists, he will leave a trail of ruin behind him, and care not one whit. Trump has not found a new and creative way to win. He is rallying a coalition that was at its most potent in 1988 for one, last, bitter, alienating hurrah. He may undermine the viability of the Republican Party in the process. More than that, he has ripped open old wounds of race and gender that threaten the unity and justice of our country. Democrats have now been given a stage, a platform, to demonstrate a better way. But they have a fateful choice. On one hand, they could elect an off-putting, polarizing House speaker from the past, prove unable to distinguish between useful oversight and partisan harassment, and be riven by internal debate over impeachment after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Or ... OK, let’s face it; Democrats will do all these self-destructive things. It is the shared addiction of recent American politics to interpret partisan wins as opportunities to achieve absolute ideological victory, rather than build a broader coalition. The most important test will come in the 2020 presidential nomination process, which has already begun. Here is the hard, political reality for Democrats, unchanged by their recent House victory: Faced with a choice between a scary, quasi-socialist culture warrior of the left and a scary, right-wing, nativist buffoon, America’s current presidential electorate may well choose the latter. And this would grant a racist demagogue the BIGGEST VICTORY OF HIS LIFE. Michael Gerson michaelgerson@washpost.com Copyright The Washington Post

Are 3 Toy Hall of Fame inductees deserving? ‘Signs point to yes’ BY CAROLYN THOMPSON Associated Press

ROCHESTER, N.Y. • Magic 8

Ball, card game Uno and the arcade classic pinball machines make up the National Toy Hall of Fame’s class of 2018, recognized Thursday for their staying power and influence. The honorees were chosen from a field of 12 finalists that also included American Girl Dolls, chalk, Chutes and Ladders, the Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Masters of the Universe, the sled, tic-tac-toe, Tickle Me Elmo and Tudor Electric Football. The latest inductees will be on permanent display at the Hall of Fame, located inside The Strong

museum in Rochester, alongside 65 previous honorees that include playthings ranging from the stick and cardboard box to Barbie and Lionel Trains. The Magic 8 Ball was a finalist seven times before the judges finally decided “signs point to yes” for the honor. The liquid-filled orb that tells such fortunes by way of a floating 20-sided die was introduced in 1946 and ranks in surveys among the most popular toys of the 20th century, the Hall of Fame said. Look for one on the writer’s room desk in “Dick Van Dyke Show” reruns or demonstrated on TV’s “Friends.” “Millions of people have purchased a Magic 8 Ball in the last

seven decades and its wide appeal and quirky nature have helped it maintain popularity,” curator Michelle Parnett-Dwyer said. The card game Uno was invented by barber Merle Robbins nearly 50 years ago and proved to be simple enough for children and varied enough for adults. Mattel now owns it and has released numerous editions, including those dedicated to Elvis and “Star Trek.” Coin-operated pinball machines have been around for decades, but the game is in the midst of a revival. The International Flipper Pinball Association says there were 500 players in 50 competitions worldwide in 2006. In 2017, more than 55,000

OBITUARIES Becker, Michael Lee - St. Louis Bollinger, Gene Raymond - Overland Jones, Phillip M. Sr. - St. Louis Landgraf, Marvin - Overland, MO Levin, Wilma J. - St. Louis

players competed in 4,500 competitions. “Pinball has been enjoying a renewed interest as a new generation of digital natives discovers the fast-paced kinetic game play that’s easy to learn but tough to master,” chief curator Christopher Bensch said. Anyone can nominate a toy for the National Toy Hall of Fame. After a museum advisory committee culls the list to 12, a national panel of historians, educators and others with expertise in learning and creativity make the final selections. The judges consider a nominee’s longevity and popularity, ability to foster creativity or discovery through play and its influence on play or toy design.

Justice Ginsburg in hospital after fracturing 3 ribs in fall Jurist, 85, is forced to miss welcoming event for Kavanaugh BY MARK SHERMAN associated Press

WASHINGTON • Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, fractured three ribs in a fall in her office at the court and is in the hospital, the court said Thursday. The court’s oldest justice fell Wednesday evening, the court said. She called Supreme Court police to take her to George Washington University Hospital in Washington early Thursday after experiencing discomfort overnight, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said. She was admitted to the hospital for treatment and observation after tests showed she fractured three ribs. In her absence, the court went ahead Thursday with a courtroom ceremony welcoming new Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who joined the court last month. President Donald Trump and new acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker were on hand.

BY ERIC TUCKER, JONATHAN LEMIRE AND CHAD DAY associated Press

WASHINGTON • The White House is bracing for the probe of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign to fire up again. Trump’s advisers are privately expressing worries that the special counsel, who has been out of the news for the past month, has been stealthily compiling information and could soon issue new indictments or a damning final report. Trump altered the chain of command above special counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday, putting his work under supervision of a Republican loyalist who has been openly skeptical of the special counsel’s reach and has mused about ways to curtail his power. Trump and his aides are concerned about Mueller’s next move with the work that is complete, according to a White House official and a Republican with ties to the administration. They insisted on anonymity to comment on conversations they were not authorized to describe. Mueller has kept a low profile for the past month as midterm elections drew near. But activity during his quiet period, including weeks of grand jury testimony about Trump confidant Roger Stone and negotiations over an interview with the president, hinted at developments ahead as investigators move closer to addressing key questions: Did Trump illegally obstruct the investigation? And did his campaign have advance knowledge of illegally hacked Democratic emails? Trump has told confidants he remains annoyed by the 18-month-old Mueller probe, believing it is not just a “witch hunt” but an expensive and negative distraction. The latest indication of the fury came Wednesday when he forced out his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, whose recusal opened the door to Mueller’s appointment. To this point, Trump has heeded advice not to directly interfere, though a new chapter may have begun with the ap-

pointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Even if Whitaker, Sessions’ former chief of staff, does not curtail the investigation, Trump could direct him to take a more aggressive stance in declassifying documents that could undermine the probe, the White House aide and GOP official said. The investigation until now has been overseen by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller last year. “It’s very significant because Whitaker’s position on indictments or future indictments may be different than Rosenstein’s, and Rosenstein had given Mueller a broad mandate to pursue various crimes,” said Washington criminal defense lawyer Jeffrey Jacobovitz. The Mueller investigation has so far produced 32 criminal charges and four guilty pleas from Trump associates. A clear focus concerns Stone, a longtime political operative. The special counsel’s team has been investigating Stone’s connection to WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign and whether he had advance knowledge of the group’s plans to release hacked material damaging to Democrat Hillary Clinton. Stone has said he did not, but emails, Twitter messages and his own public statements show he portrayed himself as plugged into the WikiLeaks orbit. On Thursday, a federal appeals court in Washington heard a challenge to Mueller’s authority brought by Stone aide Andrew Miller, who defied a grand jury subpoena last summer and was held in contempt by a judge. Overseeing the probe is Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney from Iowa who was a familiar presence on CNN, where he questioned Mueller’s scope. Despite demands from Democrats and ethics watchdogs that he recuse because of past comments, Whitaker showed no signs he intended to do so. Republican Sen. Jeff Flake and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons said Thursday they will try to force a vote next week on legislation to protect Mueller.

after falls. The severity depends in part on whether the ribs are cracked or broken all the way through, and how many are broken. The extent of Ginsburg’s injury was not clear. A complete break requires making sure the two ends are in alignment, so that a sharp piece of bone doesn’t puncture nearby blood vessels or organs. Broken ribs typically heal on their own in six weeks to a month, and patients are advised to limit strenuous activity. But they can be very painful and controlling pain is key. A chief complication is pneumonia, when patients don’t breathe deeply enough or cough enough because of the rib pain. Appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1993, Ginsburg rebuffed suggestions from some liberals that she should step down in the first two years of President Barack Obama’s second term, when Democrats also controlled the Senate and would have been likely to confirm her successor. She already has hired clerks for the term that extends into 2020, indicating she has no plans to retire. Ginsburg leads the court’s liberal wing.

ATLANTA • Republican Brian Kemp resigned Thursday as Georgia’s secretary of state, removing himself from the ongoing count of the governor’s election he says he’s already won. Kemp made his announcement in the governor’s office of the Georgia Capitol, standing beside the man he plans to replace in January. Republican Gov. Nathan Deal called Kemp “the governor-elect” and both said they would begin transition work together. “We won a clear and convincing victory,” Kemp said of returns showing him with 50.3 percent of almost 4 million votes, about a 63,000-vote lead over Democrat Stacey Abrams. That’s a narrow sum considering the near-presidential election year turnout, though sufficient for the majority required for outright victory. Abrams maintained there are enough uncounted ballots to force a December runoff in one of the marquee matchups of the 2018 midterm elections. The Associated Press has not called the governor’s race. With legal wrangles opening on what votes to count and how, the dispute is prolonging a bitter contest awash in historical significance and political impact. Abrams hopes to become the first black woman elected governor of any American state. Kemp seeks to maintain Republican dominance in a Deep South state positioned to become a presidential battleground. The key question is how many uncounted ballots actually remain. Kemp says it’s less than 21,000 — almost certainly not enough to force a runoff. The elections chief from the secretary of state’s office said in a federal court hearing Thursday that the number is 21,190. “Even if she got 100 percent of those votes, we still win,” Kemp told reporters. Abrams’ campaign argues the total could be higher, and the secretary of state’s office has

been scant in sharing details as officials in Georgia’s 159 counties keep counting. “This is about the integrity of the election in the state of Georgia,” said Abrams’ campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo. “Brian Kemp can’t just walk away from that. ... Our governor (Deal) can’t just walk away from that.” John Chandler, one of several attorneys for Abrams, promised to “litigate until we have determined that every person’s vote has been counted.” A runoff, if needed, would be Dec. 4. County authorities must certify final returns by Tuesday. The state must certify a statewide result by Nov. 20. Deal appointed one of his Cabinet members to oversee the process in Kemp’s place. Abrams, other Democrats — including former President Jimmy Carter — and voting rights activists had for months called for Kemp to step down amid charges he was abusing his office to make it hard for some, particularly minorities, to vote. Kemp said his resignation “will give confidence to the certification process.” “That was all political,” Kemp said of previous criticisms. Abrams’ campaign said it believes she needs to pick up about 25,000 votes to force a runoff. Offering examples of potential ballots Democrats say Kemp isn’t contemplating, Groh-Wargo said four counties reported considerably fewer early votes in the governor’s race than the number of early ballots cast. Groh-Wargo said it seemed implausible that voters cared enough to cast ballots early but not in the governor’s race. She added officials in suburban Atlanta’s Cobb County added several hundred votes to that count Thursday from absentee ballots. That came after the secretary of state’s office said all absentee and early ballots had been counted. Abrams has not conceded. And while Kemp said he respected her efforts, he declared Thursday, “The votes simply are not there for her.”

DIGEST Thousands are forced to flee California fires Tens of thousands of people were ordered to leave as a fastmoving wildfire exploded in size Thursday, threatening several northern California communities and forcing residents to race to help neighbors who had to drive through flames to escape. At least two firefighters were injured. Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter said he was on a bulldozer that pushed cars out of the way Thursday to get to the Adventist Health Feather River Hospital in the town of Paradise. When he arrived there, patients were out in the front of the emergency room, where the roof had caught fire. Hospital spokeswoman Jill Kinney said all patients were evacuated. Funeral held for slain Boston gangster • A funeral Mass was held in Boston on Thursday for notorious gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, who was killed last week hours after he arrived at a troubled West Virginia prison. The archdiocese of Boston said a private service for immediate family was held at St. Monica Church in South Boston, where Bulger grew up and ran his ruthless gang. Bulger, 89, was found beaten to death shortly after he was transferred to USP Hazelton, a federal penitentiary that has come under fire for its dangerous conditions. Authorities have said two Massachusetts mobsters are under suspicion in the killing. Bulger, who ran a largely Irish mob in Boston in the 1970s and ’80s and ratted on members of the New England Mob to the FBI, was serving a life sentence for 11 slayings and other crimes. Protesters target home of Fox News host • Police say they are investigating a protest and vandalism at the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a possible hate crime. It’s the latest example of protesters targeting the personal lives of aides and allies of President Donald Trump in the Washington area. Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department said officers were summoned to Carlson’s home Wednesday evening and found about 20 protesters and a commonly used anarchy symbol spray-painted on the driveway. A brief video posted on social media by a group calling itself “Smash Racism DC” shows people standing outside a darkened home chanting “Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night.” The video was later removed. There were no arrests. Carlson has been a major supporter of Trump and his policies. FDA plans to restrict flavored e-cigarettes • The Food and Drug Administration, alarmed by a huge increase in vaping among minors, is expected to impose severe restrictions on the sale of most e-cigarette products throughout the United States — actions that will likely have a big effect on an industry that has grown exponentially in recent years. As soon as next week, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is expected to announce a ban on the sale of flavored e-cigarettes — the majority of vaping products sold — in convenience stores and gas stations across the country, according to agency officials. The FDA moves are being spurred by preliminary government data showing e-cigarette use rose 77 percent among high schoolers and nearly 50 percent among middle schoolers in 2018. That means 3.5 million children were vaping in early 2018, up 1 million from 2017. Omaha skyscraper evacuated; 25 hospitalized • The tallest building in Omaha, Neb., was evacuated and more than two dozen people were hospitalized after cleaning-solution fumes spread through the building. The Omaha World-Herald reports that the First National Tower was ordered evacuated Thursday after workers began complaining of a strong odor and breathing problems. Fire department officials say more than 60 people were assessed by emergency crews, and 25 were taken to a nearby hospital. Nebraska Medical Center says all of the patients are expected to recover and no one required aggressive treatment. Some patients were released later in the day. About 2,000 people work at the 46-story building. From news services

DIGEST Suspects arrested in heist of $3 million in rare Indian jewels Croatian police have arrested four suspects in the brazen theft in January of Indian jewels from the famed Al Thani Collection that were on display in a Venetian palace. Four men, all Croatians ranging in age from 43 to 60, were arrested Wednesday after a joint investigation with Italian police, Croatian police said Thursday in a statement. Police did not reveal whether the jewels had been recovered. The Croatian statement said one of the arrested suspects is believed to be linked to major heists in Europe and the notorious, multinational “Pink Panther” gang of thieves. The thieves made off with a brooch and a pair of earrings worth an estimated $3 million on display at Venice’s Doge’s Palace. Moscow honors British double agent • The mayor of Moscow has decreed that a square near the headquarters of Russia’s SVR foreign intelligence service be named after Kim Philby, the Briton who was the most successful Soviet double agent of the Cold War period. Mayor Sergei Sobyanin signed the order Tuesday. The move comes amid tension between Russia and Britain over this year’s nerve agent poisoning of Russian former double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the English city of Salisbury. Philby joined Britain’s MI6 foreign intelligence service in 1940, eventually heading its counterespionage division. He resigned in 1951 under suspicion he had tipped off two double agents, who fled to Moscow. Philby defected to the Soviet Union in 1963, where he died in 1988. Mexico could see marijuana legalized • The party of Mexico’s presidentelect submitted legislation Thursday that would legalize marijuana possession, public use, growing and sales. Sen. Olga Sanchez Cordero presented the measure, saying that everyone should have “the right to carry up to 30 grams (1 ounce) of cannabis.” Her bill would allow every Mexican to grow up to 20 marijuana plants on private property and produce up to 17 ounces a year. Public smoking of marijuana would be allowed, “except in tobacco smoke-free spaces.” Sales of edible marijuana products would be prohibited, as would advertising. Providing pot to minors would be illegal. The bill would have to be approved by both houses of Mexico’s congress. Poland switching from Russia to U.S. for natural gas • Poland’s main gas company signed a long-term contract Thursday to receive deliveries of liquefied natural gas from the United States as part of a larger effort to reduce its energy dependence on Russia.

Jewels from the Al Thani Collection are shown Jan. 3 at Venice’s Doge’s Palace in Italy. Croatian police have arrested four suspects in the theft of some of the jewels.

The state company PGNiG signed the 24-year deal with American supplier Cheniere during a ceremony in Warsaw attended by U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Polish President Andrzej Duda. The value of the deal with the Polish company was not disclosed, in line with traditional secrecy for such deals. However, the president of PGNiG’s management board said the price is nearly 30 percent lower than what Poland pays its current supplier in Russia. Flowers, prayers, dancing at Bolivian skull festival • Carrying human skulls adorned with flowers and coca leaves, hundreds of people danced to cheerful music and prayed for favors Thursday in an annual festival outside a cemetery chapel in Bolivia’s capital. Devotees brought skulls known as “natitas” to a cemetery in La Paz, asking for money, health and other favors. They held a short service in a ritual that is celebrated a week after the Day of the Dead. The festival is a mix of Andean ancestral worship and Roman Catholic beliefs. Experts say it was common in pre-Columbian times to keep skulls as trophies and display them to symbolize death and rebirth. The Catholic Church considers the festival to be pagan, but it doesn’t ban people from taking part. Bus collision kills 50 in Zimbabwe • A collision between two buses has killed 50 people in Zimbabwe, where road accidents are common due to poor roads and bad driving. Two long-distance buses going opposite directions collided near Rusape, about 105 miles east of the capital Harare on Wednesday evening, said police spokesman Paul Nyathi. The death toll could rise because 80 others were admitted to a hospital, some with serious injuries. One of the buses tried to pass two trucks on a stretch of the road where passing is prohibited, resulting in the collision, Ellen Gwaradzimba, the provincial minister for Manicaland province, told the state broadcaster. Both buses were speeding, police said.

reported Thursday that police were carrying out a courtordered investigation for evidence of alleged abuses by forces loyal to the former president of the Somali region, Abdi Mohammed, now in detention. The Fana report said that police were granted 14 days to unearth and do forensic examinations on the estimated 200 bodies that have been found. The bodies appear to be related to clashes carried out by a militia known as the Liyu that were loyal to the former Somali region leader.

Emerging market woes have given A-B InBev a hangover DAVID NICKLAUS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Reigning as undisputed king of beers hasn’t been as easy as Anheuser-Busch InBev expected. The global brewer’s shares

have fallen 42 percent since it bought its largest competitor, SABMiller, in October 2016. The company’s struggles were highlighted last month when it reported disappointing thirdquarter earnings and slashed its dividend by half. A-B InBev has delivered the cost savings it promised, and

A St. Louis police officer looks over a large hole in Sixth Street on June 29, 2017, that swallowed a Toyota Camry between Olive and Locust streets. A water main was damaged.

Two years ago this week, an eventful eight-month period began on a single block of downtown St. Louis — one highlighted by ruptured water mains spilling millions of gallons of water and a sinkhole swallowing a Toyota Camry when a sizable chunk of Sixth Street caved in. The cavernous void that engulfed the car — 20 feet deep and 8 to 10 feet across — raised questions about why there wasn’t soil and other material there to support the roadway, as one would expect.

Ford gets behind scooters, buying startup firm Spin San Francisco-area company may rent its bikes in St. Louis BY PAUL LIENERT Reuters

Ford Motor Co. said Thursday that it will join the mushrooming micro-mobility movement with the acquisition of two-year-old company Spin, an electric scooter rental firm based in San Francisco. The No. 2 U.S. automaker, one of the first to enter the sector, will invest about $200 million in Spin, according to a source familiar with the acquisition. The purchase price is dwarfed by investments in — and valuations awarded to — Lime and Bird, the U.S. market leaders in a sector that only started to accelerate about eight months ago. Lime and Bird offer scooters for rent in St. Louis. A spokes-

woman for Spin on Thursday said the company may expand scooter rentals to St. Louis. “We’re in preliminary conversations with the city, and it’s on our list of cities to expand to,” Spin spokeswoman Ariella Steinhorn said in an email to the Post-Dispatch. Lime, based in San Mateo, Calif., was founded in 2017 and has drawn more than $450 million in funding, at a valuation of more than $4 billion. Its investors include ride services giant Uber and Google’s parent Alphabet. Bird, based in Santa Monica, also was launched in 2017. It has attracted $400 million in investments and is valued at $2 billion. In an interview, Marcy Klevorn, president of Ford’s mobility unit, said the acquisition of Spin “fills a gap in our mobility portfolio,” while providing “accessible and affordable transportation” in cities See FORD • Page B4

BUSINESS DIGEST Fewer corporate holiday parties are on tap • Business is going strong, but fewer U.S. companies are celebrating with holiday parties this year. This may be the result of the #MeToo movement, which has highlighted sexual harassment and assault in the workplace, according to a survey released this week by consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. Only 65 percent of companies are holding a holiday celebration this year — the lowest percentage since 2009, the study shows. “The number could be due to several factors, including potential liability following the #MeToo movement,” said Andrew Challenger, vice president of the firm. “HR departments nationwide are responding to this particular issue.” Economic conditions aren’t part of the equation, according to Challenger. “Companies are sitting on tax savings and generally report a thriving economy,” he said. Another reason for the drop in holiday events, the study shows, is a rise in employees that work remotely, which can make the logistics of a gathering more difficult. Challenger, Gray & Christmas surveyed 150 human resources representatives across the U.S. in October. Deadline nears for nonprofit’s Women in the Workplace survey • The nonprofit Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis is concluding its annual 2018 Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard survey. Friday is the last day for organizations to register and apply at wfstl.org/women-in-theworkplace/. The nonprofit says the scorecard initiative, launched last year, seeks to recognize employers who demonstrate a strong commitment to women in the workplace. KAI Design & Build acquires Volk Construction • KAI Design & Build has acquired St. Louisbased Volk Construction Co. Financial terms of the sale announced Thursday were not

disclosed. Volk, which has 10 employees, was founded in 1967 by R. David Volk Sr., and his son David Volk Jr. was named president in 1995. “The combination of Volk’s heritage and commitment to St. Louis combined with KAI’s progressive approach to collaborative design and construction solutions aligns perfectly and will create a powerful platform to meet the evolving needs of our industry and national customer base,” David Volk Jr. said in a statement. Black Friday is already here as retailers kick off holiday sales • Don’t look now, but Black Friday has already begun. Walmart and Best Buy were among the big retailers to unveil holiday deals Thursday on products such as ultra-highdefinition smart televisions, laptops and gaming consoles. Amazon.com is also touting its Black Friday discounts early, while Target will roll out offers on home decor and bedding this weekend. The frenzy shows the rules are changing as retailers prepare to battle for what could be the strongest holiday period in years — fueled by robust consumer confidence and low unemployment. Retail sales increased 6.1 percent in the week ended Nov. 3, providing additional momentum for U.S. chains that are dangling free shipping and other enticements to grab bargain-seeking early shoppers. This year’s X factor is the demise of Toys R Us, which has put as much as $100 billion in sales up for grabs, according to Target. The bankruptcy of Sears Holding Corp. may create additional openings for big retailers. Holiday sales are predicted to increase 5.8 percent this year, surpassing $1 trillion for the first time, according to researcher eMarketer. Black Friday — the day after Thanksgiving — traditionally marks the start of the holiday shopping season. From staff and wire reports

After Fed statement, stocks close mixed; oil prices fall

Jeffrey Berger works at the New York Stock Exchange Thursday as the Fed leaves interest rates steady.

BY SINÉAD CAREW reuters

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed slightly lower on Thursday after a Federal Reserve statement, and energy stocks were the biggest drag on the S&P as U.S. crude oil prices fell. The central bank said after its two-day meeting that strong job gains and household spending were keeping the economy on track but business investment “moderated from its rapid pace earlier in the year,” creating a possible drag on future economic growth. Aside from the comment about business investments, the Fed statement was largely as expected and suggested to investors that the Fed’s next rate hike would be in December. But some investors had hoped for a change in tone after October’s market sell-off. “The Fed has recognized that there is one part of the economy that is slowing a little bit, but it is not deterring them from their

‘gradual increase’ language. Not yet anyway,” said Jamie Cox, managing partner at Harris Financial Group, Richmond, Va. “There is really nothing to point to what the market had hoped, that there would be a more dovish stance,” he continued. “So I think this is more of what we call a hawkish hold.” The Dow Jones industrial average rose 10.92 points, or 0.04 percent, to 26,191.22, the S&P 500 lost 7.06 points, or 0.25 percent, to 2,806.83 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 39.87 points, or 0.53 percent, to 7,530.89. The three indexes had all risen 2 percent in the previous day’s session due to a relief rally once the midterm congressional elections were over. Quincy Krosby, chief market strategist at Prudential Financial in Newark, N.J., said companies were holding off on spending because of uncertainty over a U.S.China trade war. “A slowdown in business spending can slow the under-

pinning of the stock market,” Krosby said. “Is the Fed datadependent or is it maintaining a rigid schedule for rate hikes in 2019? What would cause the Fed to pause? It’s clear from this statement today that they’re looking at anything that could potentially slow the economy.” The S&P bank index ended the day with a 0.4 percent gain as U.S. Treasury yields rose because bank profits benefit from rising rates. Energy stocks were the S&P’s biggest drag with a 2.2 percent drop as U.S. crude oil futures confirmed a bear market, falling more than 20 percent from their Oct. 3 high as investors focused on swelling global crude supply, which is increasing more quickly than many had expected. The Wall Street Journal reported that Saudi Arabia’s top government-funded think-tank is studying the possible effects on oil markets of a breakup of OPEC in a story citing unnamed people familiar with the matter.

Schnucks adds curbside grocery pickup at four stores in metro area

M 1 • FrIDAy • 11.09.2018

Mortgage rates hit 4.94 pct., highest level in nearly 8 years

FROM STAFF REPORTS

BY KATHY ORTON Washington Post

Schnuck Markets is now offering customers the ability to have their groceries brought out to their cars at four St. Louis area stores. The Maryland Heights grocery chain said Thursday it had added curbside pickup — which has been launched at other retailers locally, including Walmart — at Schnucks stores at 1950 Zumbehl Road in St. Charles; 1060 Woods Mill Road in Town and Country; 6600 Clayton Road in Richmond Heights; and 5055 Arsenal Street in St. Louis. In January 2019, the following Schnucks stores will have curbside pickup: 4333 Butler Hill Road in St. Louis County; 12756 Olive Boulevard in Creve Coeur; 10233 Manchester Road in Kirkwood; and 13987 New Halls Ferry Road in Florissant. The grocery chain is partnering with delivery company Instacart in the new service. With curbside pickup, customers order online and select a time to pick up their order at a Schnucks store while remaining in their vehicle on the store’s parking lot. “We know our customers lead busy lives, and curbside pickup allows them to easily shop online for groceries and pick them up at a time that’s convenient to them, whether that’s around their daily work commute, while transporting kids to or from school, or while running other errands,” Schnucks’ Vice President of Marketing Ted Schnuck said in a statement. “This is another way for Schnucks to continue to meet the changing needs of our customers and their families, by delivering to their home, office, and now, to their car.”

Strong employment numbers caused mortgage rates to take off with the 30-year fixed-rate average the highest it has been in nearly eight years. According to the latest data released Thursday by Freddie Mac, the 30-year fixed-rate average jumped to 4.94 percent with an average 0.5 point. (Points are fees paid to a lender equal to 1 percent of the loan amount.) It was 4.83 percent a week ago and 3.90 percent a year ago. The 30-year fixed was last this high in February 2011. The 15-year fixed-rate average climbed to 4.33 percent with an average 0.5 point. It was 4.23 percent a week ago and 3.24 percent a year ago. The fiveyear adjustable rate average rose to 4.14 percent with an average 0.3 point. It was 4.04 percent a week ago and 3.22 percent a year ago. “The all-important read on the American labor market showed stronger than expected employment and wage growth, which gives the Federal Reserve yet another data point suggesting that the U.S. economy can withstand higher interest rates,” said Aaron Terrazas, senior economist at Zillow. “The upward momentum for rates is likely to continue in the near term.” The Federal Reserve concluded its meeting Thursday and did not raise its benchmark rate. However, indications are that the Fed will hike short-term rates for the fourth time this year when it meets next month. The central bank doesn’t set mortgage rates, but its decisions influence them. Bankrate.com, which puts out a weekly mortgage rate trend index, found the experts it surveyed were almost evenly split on where

City is plaintiff in lawsuit AMEREN • FROM B1

While some speculative bystanders chalked it up at the time as a freak accident or fluke of geology, others thought the crater was triggered by erosion from the water main that broke just around the corner, months before. “I know where a lot of the dirt was,” Amos Harris, a developer for the neighboring Railway Exchange Building, told the Post-Dispatch when the sinkhole emerged in June 2017. “It was in our basement.” That assessment is echoed in a lawsuit filed by the building’s owners in St. Louis Circuit Court last week. The suit, which also includes the City of St. Louis as a plaintiff, places the blame on Ameren through one of the electric utility’s subcontractors, INTREN. It alleges that they “negligently caused the rupture” of a water main while working in the area in November 2016, setting in motion a destructive chain of events that have cost millions for the property owner and the city. In total, the suit says that $26 million in remediation and repair costs have been incurred so far at the Railway Exchange Building and the Seventh Street Garage across the street. Meanwhile, it states that the city has faced its own

rates are headed. Half said they will continue to rise in the coming week. The other half expect them to remain relatively stable. Greg McBride, chief financial analyst at Bankrate.com, predicts rates will rise. “No Fed rate hike this week but clear indications of another to come in December will push bond yields and mortgage rates a bit higher,” McBride said. Michael Becker, branch manager at Sierra Pacific Mortgage, says rates will hold steady. “With a lack of economic news or reports to move markets, I expect bond yields and mortgage rates to remain flat in the coming week,” Becker said. With rates rising, mortgage applications continued to diminish, according to the latest data from the Mortgage Bankers Association. The market composite index — a measure of total loan application volume — de-

costs and lost 15 million gallons of water in the two allegedly linked episodes — a quantity it says carries about $2.7 million in value. The lawsuit seeks financial relief deemed “just and proper under the circumstances.” Much of the eight-page lawsuit maps out the chronology — and the close proximity — of the events. It says that on Nov. 13, 2016, INTREN employees ruptured a water main while “digging a trench for a new conduit for electric service cables on Locust Street, between Sixth and Seventh Street.” An estimated 9 million gallons of water were released over the course of several hours. “This prolonged release of water, at high pressure, washed away a great deal of subsurface soil in the surrounding area. Much of the soil, liquefied into sludge by the escaping water, entered the basements of the buildings owned by (St. Louis Railway, LP),” the lawsuit says, adding that a section of Locust Street collapsed from erosion underneath. But the filing says that “unbeknownst” to St. Louis Railway, erosion from the rupture created “huge voids beneath the asphalt-topped concrete of the streets surrounding the (Railway Exchange Building). As a result of these voids, further ruptures of water mains in the vicinity of the November 2016 Rupture were inevitable.” That came to fruition, the lawsuit states, in June 2017, when a second water main break occurred “as a direct result” of the earlier rupture. The failure of that eight-inch main allegedly

clined 4 percent from a week earlier. The refinance index fell 3 percent from the previous week, while the purchase index dropped 1 percent. The refinance share of mortgage activity accounted for 39.1 percent of all applications. “The steady rise in mortgage rates ... continues to weigh on mortgage applications, as total volume fell last week to its lowest level since December 2014,” said Bob Broeksmit, MBA president and CEO. “Although purchase applications declined for the second straight week, mortgage lenders throughout the country say homebuyer demand is still strong. With home price growth moderating, inventory conditions improving and incomes rising, the foundation is there for activity to pick up before the end of the year.” The MBA also released its mortgage credit availability

released 6 million gallons of water and “caused additional flooding and other damage to the buildings owned” by St. Louis Railway. Perhaps most strikingly, the main break “manifested itself” through the sudden formation of the car-eating sinkhole, the suit says. Workers found that an approximately 50-foot-long stretch of the street had been hollowed out underground, and was not supported by soil. Harris told the Post-Dispatch last year that the first incident left 6 to 9 feet of water in the basement of the 1.2 million-square-foot Railway Exchange Building, and 2 to 3 feet of water got into the basement when the sinkhole opened. Developers are aiming to convert the vacant building — which previously housed a Macy’s department store on the lower floors until 2013 — into space for offices, retail and apartments. The lawsuit says that work has been “significantly delayed” by damage from the broken water mains. Ameren declined to comment on the matter. After the sinkhole’s appearance last year, an Ameren spokesman confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that a contractor dug a trench for a conduit the previous November, but denied that they ever hit a water line. INTREN also declined to comment. A court summons issued Nov. 2 requires that Ameren file a plea for the case within 30 days. Bryce Gray • 314-340-8307 @_BryceGray on Twitter bgray@post-dispatch.com

index (MCAI) this week that showed credit availability increased in October. The MCAI rose 2.5 percent to 186.7 last month. An increase indicates that lending standards are loosening, while a decrease signals they are tightening. “Credit availability increased in October, driven largely by an expansion in the supply of conventional credit, while government credit fell slightly over the month,” Joel Kan, an MBA economist, said in a statement. “Reversing a trend from last month, lenders made more conventional and low down-payment programs available to prospective borrowers. This increase in supply was likely in response to a growing number of first-time homebuyers in the market.... Jumbo credit availability also expanded last month, with the jumbo index increasing again to its highest level since the survey began.”

and on college campuses. Spin and its rivals follow a simple business model. They buy e-scooters — think of a child’s kick-start scooter equipped with an electric motor and a wireless internet connection — for $100-$300 each from manufacturers such as China’s Ninebot, then rent them for short distances and short periods of time via mobile phone apps, typically at a flat rate of $1 plus 15 cents a minute. After launching in the Bay Area, e-scooters are beginning to roll out in many cities across the United States, including St. Louis. Ford plans to expand Spin over the next 18 months, from 32 markets to more than 100 in North America, according to Sundeep Madra, head of the automaker’s Ford X startup incubator. Klevorn said e-scooters complement Ford’s product portfolio, including the full-size Fseries pickup that generates the lion’s share of Ford’s profit. “Our overall strategy is to provide customers with a choice, whether it’s buy or lease (a vehicle) or pay by use,” Klevorn said. Spin will be a wholly owned Ford subsidiary, operating out of San Francisco. Last week, General Motors Co. said it planned to introduce a pair of electric bicycles in 2019 but has not said whether it plans to enter the escooter business.

American beer is feeling the pinch of Trump’s tariffs

Brewer’s stock down 42 percent since merger

BY EMILY RAUHALA Washington Post

its profit margins remain the envy of the industry, but it has fallen short on volume growth. The merger was a bet on beer consumption in emerging markets, where the company now gets two-thirds of its revenue. A-B InBev paid a premium price because it liked the growth potential of SABMiller brands in Africa, South America and Asia. Many of those markets are dealing with problems beyond the company’s control. The economies of Argentina, Brazil and South Africa all are slumping, which has hurt sales of premiumpriced beers. Weaker emerging-market currencies, partly as a result of higher U.S. interest rates, have compounded the trouble. A-B InBev’s third-quarter earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation rose 7.5 percent higher in local currencies, but fell 6.5 percent when translated to dollars. In hindsight, SABMiller’s $100 billion price tag looks too high. A-B InBev was betting on high-growth emerging markets, but it failed to price in the volatility that goes with that growth. “They probably didn’t gauge as well as they might have how the combination of currencies and emergingmarket trends might play out,” says Eric Shepard, executive editor of trade publication Beer Marketer’s Insights. Chief Executive Carlos Brito describes the emerging-markets storm as a temporary setback. “We must weather such volatility to pursue the growth opportunities that are also inherent to the same markets,” he told analysts last month. The company also faces challenges in the U.S., which still represents a fifth of its beer sales and a quarter of profits. It has seen a steady erosion of market share, especially for top brands Bud Light and Budweiser, since buying Anheuser-Busch a decade ago. Some of the lost volume has gone to craft beer, although U.S. beer sales also have been declining overall. “It’s not for lack of investing behind Bud Light and Budweiser,” Shepard says. “They have never stopped investing marketing dollars behind the brands, but they have not been successful.” Tom Pirko, managing director of California consulting firm Bevmark, says the craft revolution turned beer into a chaotic business. Hundreds of small brands are capturing whatever growth exists in the segment, but none of them can achieve economies of scale. “It’s one thing to be able to dominate a market that stays relatively constant, but it’s another when you’re facing a world that is really changing in terms of consumer tastes,” Pirko says. Even A-B InBev’s legendary profit margins may eventually have to give way, Pirko predicts. “You can’t persist indefinitely with high margins and declining sales,” he says. In the past, A-B InBev has sustained its numbers by doing one big deal after another. With Anheuser-Busch in 2008, Grupo Modelo in 2013 and SABMiller in 2016, there were always more costs to be wrung out. People once speculated that the next big purchase might be outside of beer, perhaps involving a giant like CocaCola or Pepsico. By acknowledging that it needs to pay down debt, however, the giant brewer is admitting that there won’t be another megadeal anytime soon. First, A-B InBev must prove that it still knows how to sell beer in a rapidly changing world.

For American brewers, metal tariffs are a bit of a buzzkill. This summer, as the United States, Canada and Mexico tried to cut a new North American trade deal, President Donald Trump slapped tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum. More than a month after the countries reached a provisional agreement for the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, those tariffs are still in place. Canadian industry has been bruised, but so have a number of U.S. businesses, including beer. In a vivid example of how Trump’s trade tactics abroad can hurt business at home, the U.S. beer industry, which needs aluminum to make cans, is seeing costs rise. Brewers say the math is simple: A cold can of beer requires a can, which requires aluminum. As tariffs roil the market, sending prices up, the cost of producing each can increases. The Trump administration has played down the impact. In a television appearance in March, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross held cans of Budweiser, Campbell’s Soup and Coca-Cola before the camera and called the per-can cost increase “no big deal.” “If that goes up by 25 percent, that’s about six-tenths of one cent,” he said, holding the soup can. “Who in the world is going to be too bothered by six-tenths of a cent?” The Beer Institute, a U.S. trade group, says brewers are bothered. It projects that over a year, tariffs on foreign aluminum could increase the cost of beer production by $347 million. The industry has found common cause with Canadians and others, calling on the Trump administration to scrap the tariffs before the ceremonial signing of the U.S.Mexico-Canada trade deal, which may come as early as the end of the month. “We’d like to see these tariffs repealed,” said Jim McGreevy, president and CEO of the Beer Institute. “We were hoping that the renegotiation of NAFTA would have taken the steel and aluminum tariffs off the table, but all indications are that the tariffs will continue,” he said. “And that does not bode well for American beer.” The impact is already being felt, said Ryan Krill, co-founder and CEO of the Cape May Brewing Co., a small brewery in southern New Jersey. Krill, who started his business in 2011,

says rising aluminum prices will cost him about $30,000 this year — a big sum for a small team. “We could get a lot miles out of that,” he said. “It’s a bit of a bummer.” To understand why U.S. beer is having a bummer year, look to the aluminum market — and to Trump. After years of tough talk on trade, the president in March announced a 25 percent tariff on foreign steel and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum. The Trump administration argued that reliance on foreign metals is a threat to U.S. national security. The administration also wanted to put pressure on China, a leading producer of aluminum, to change its trade practices. Though many U.S. businesses support the idea of taking a tough line with Beijing, members of Trump’s Cabinet, economic advisers and industry groups warned that tariffs would create uncertainty and increase costs for U.S. companies that import goods. Initially, Canada, Mexico and the European Union were granted exemptions. But as the United States, Canada and Mexico negotiated this summer, Trump changed course, saying publicly that the move was meant to gain leverage over Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “The United States has been taken advantage of for many decades on trade,” Trump said in a statement on May 31. “Those days are over. Earlier today, this message was conveyed to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada: The United State(s) will agree to a fair deal, or there

will be no deal at all.” The problem is that the U.S. and Canadian aluminum markets are intricately linked, said Matt Meenan, senior director for public affairs at the Aluminum Association, a trade group. A piece of aluminum may cross the border five times during production. “Canada and the U.S. is almost like one market,” he said. So when Trump hit Canada, he also hit the United States. Tariffs on foreign aluminum benefit U.S. aluminum smelters, including Kentucky-based Century Aluminum, which is investing millions of dollars in a push to double its output. But the United States has few smelters, and American manufacturers that buy aluminum, including carmakers, soda canners and beer brewers, stand to lose. “This is putting a question mark on future investment,” Meenan said. “It comes down to uncertainty.” The lack of certainty is already hurting business, brewers say. In a May 14 Wall Street Journal op-ed, the chairman of Molson Coors Brewing Co., Pete Coors, said that Trump’s trade war already was disrupting the sector. “A cold can of beer on a hot summer day is as American as it gets,” Coors wrote. “But now that experience will cost you more.” The company’s U.S. business, MillerCoors, said that Trump’s trade war rhetoric and tactics have since worsened irregularities in the aluminum market, particularly in relation to the Midwest Premium, a fee that largely determines the cost of buying bulk aluminum across North America. Since early this year, when President Trump stepped up tariff talk, the Midwest Premium has jump 137 percent, leading to $40 million in additional costs for MillerCoors, CEO Gavin Hattersley said in an emailed statement. “MillerCoors does not support tariffs of any kind and believes that free and open markets are ultimately what’s best for the beer industry,” he said. Many smaller, craft brewers are sending a similar message. The Brewers Association, a trade group for independent and craft brewers, also opposes the tariffs, arguing that they “undermine the Trump administration’s projob, pro-growth agenda.” “The market uncertainty and financial penalties created by these tariffs negatively affect a growing manufacturing sector of the American economy: the craft brewing industry,” Brewers Association President and CEO Bob Pease said in a statement on June 5. “We urge this Administration to reconsider these tariffs, as they place an unnecessary burden on small, Main Street business owners who are creating thousands of jobs and pouring money back into their local economies.”

Fed leaves interest rates untouched But 4th rate hike this year likely set for December BY HOWARD SCHNEIDER AND JASON LANGE reuters

The Federal Reserve held interest rates steady on Thursday but remained on track to keep gradually tightening borrowing costs, as it pointed to a healthy economy that was marred only by a dip in the growth of business investment. Business investment can be a key to rising productivity and future growth, and the fact that it had “moderated from its rapid pace,” as the Fed said, was the only cautionary note in a policy statement that touted strong job gains and household spending, and a “strong rate” of overall economic activity. “The labor market has continued to strengthen and ... economic activity has been rising at a strong rate,” the U.S. central bank said, leaving intact its plans to continue raising rates at a gradual pace. The Fed has hiked rates three times this

year and is widely expected to do so again next month. The statement overall reflected little change in the Fed’s outlook for the economy since its last policy meeting in September. Inflation remained near its 2 percent target, unemployment fell, and risks to the economic outlook were still felt to be “roughly balanced.” Policymakers, however, took particular note of the moderation in business investment, an important component of GDP that can spin off jobs as companies build new facilities, and raise productivity as they upgrade equipment and processes. Boosting investment was one of the main objectives behind the Trump administration’s move to reduce the corporate tax rate as part of its restructuring of the tax code at the end of 2017. After adding four-tenths of a percentage point to economic growth in the first six months of the year, lagging investment in “nonresidential structures” trimmed a quarter of a percentage point in the annualized growth rate for the third quarter.

Financial markets, which had expected the Fed to hold its benchmark overnight lending rate steady in the current range of 2.00 percent to 2.25 percent this week, ticked lower after the statement was released. After a stock market rout in October and signs that both housing and business investment may be waning, some analysts expected the Fed to possibly signal doubt about its next rate increase. Yet December still seems firmly in play. “The only surprise here is that they weren’t more hawkish,” said Boris Schlossberg, managing director of foreign exchange strategy at BK Asset Management in New York. “There were a couple words that were more muted — that business investment had ‘moderated’ from its earlier pace. But apart from that they have not signaled any warning signs at all.” Stocks, which had rallied broadly on Wednesday after the results of the congressional elections, turned lower as the Fed’s statement offered no indication the central bank might slow the pace of its rate increases. The dollar also weakened against the

euro and yen and U.S. Treasury yields held near the day’s high. The 10-year Treasury note yield, a benchmark for both consumer and business borrowing costs, was 3.23 percent, around the highest since 2011.

FADING STIMULUS Data released in late October showed the U.S. economy grew at a 3.5 percent annual rate in the third quarter, well above the roughly 2 percent annual growth pace the Fed and many economists regard as the underlying trend. But Fed policymakers also have begun debating whether the economy has reached a plateau as the stimulus from the Trump administration’s $1.5 trillion tax cut package and increased federal spending begin to fade. The Fed’s policy statement did not explicitly take stock of the recent volatility in U.S. equity markets that led to the sell-off in October, or address the possibility of a slowdown in global growth next year. There were no updated economic forecasts released on Thursday, and the Fed’s policy decision was unanimous.

Win-now mentality Blues, Yeo need best lineup on ice at all costs right now BE BEN FREDERICKSON St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Now is no time for mixed messages. Mike Yeo says it’s all about winning, and it’s impossible to disagree with that, so the embattled Blues coach should make decisions that reflect that think-

ing, right? No, this is not about Yeo calling off a practice this week so players could forego ice time for some soccer. That news did not sit well with frustrated fans. So what? Teams need surprises. A case could be made that this fragile collection of players could use a complete restart. But that’s not happening, so surprising the See FREDERICKSON • Page C6

Don’t blame power play for team’s mediocre start BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

One of the worst things about the 2017-18 Blues is now one of the few things going well for the current squad. Behold, the Blues’ power play. More than a month into this NHL season, the Blues are among the league’s best with the man advantage. Entering Thursday’s games,

the Blues were tied for the league lead (with Washington) with 16 power-play goals. In terms of power-play percentage, the Blues have the third-best success rate at 30.8 percent, trailing only Washington (34.0 percent) and Winnipeg (33.3). For the Blues, that’s exactly twice the success rate of last season when they finished 30th at See BLUES • Page C6

Kim Anderson was still the Tigers’ coach when Mizzou agreed to a two-year deal with former conference foe Iowa State, a series that ends with Friday’s 6 p.m. tipoff at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa. It’s just the kind of early-season test Martin wants for his team. “I look forward to it,” Martin said Thursday before the Tigers flew to Iowa to rekindle an old Big Eight and Big 12 rivalry. “It’s great for our guys.

Time. “The cost of us chasing is just time and effort,” general manager Michael Girsch said, before adding with a grin: “That’s literally our job. It is what we’re here to do — to chase things down and to see what makes sense and start to see what ones we can get done. We do feel like there is some potential that’s worth exploring, and that’s where we go from here.”

Missouri’s Damarea Crockett (16) runs past Florida’s Jeawon Taylor in the Tigers’ 38-17 upset of the No. 13 Gators Saturday in Gainesville, Fla. Crockett finished with 121 yards on 14 carries. BY ANNE ROGERS Special to the Post-Dispatch

COLUMBIA, MO. • Bill Withers’ song “Lean on Me” blared through the Devine Pavilion, Missouri football’s indoor practice facility, as the team went through warmups Tuesday morning. Damarea Crockett bobbed his head and sang along as he stretched. “Sometimes in our lives, we all have pain, we all have sorrow,” the song played over whistles signaling a new stretch. “But if we are wise, we know that there’s always tomorrow.” Fitting, no? After a gut-wrenching 15-14 loss to Kentucky on Oct. 27, Tigers coach Barry Odom’s message for his team was clear: There’s al-

ways tomorrow. You probably know the rest. The Tigers (54, 1-4 SEC) knocked off then-No. 13 Florida last Saturday 38-17 and now have muchneeded momentum heading into their final three games of the regular season. “It’s good for the soul. We played ‘Lean on Me’ for the first time last Tuesday after the Kentucky loss, and we came out this weekend firing on all cylinders,” Crockett said. “So why not listen to it every week now?” After the Kentucky loss, Odom looked to the leaders of the team for help. Crockett was one of them. The junior running back asked what he could do to help the team. Odom gave him one word: Lead. “He had a voice in the locker room after the See MU • Page C4

DIGEST Former college, NFL running back Triplett dies Wally Triplett, the trailblazing running back who was one of the first African-Americans drafted by an NFL team, has died. He was 92. The Detroit Lions and Penn State announced Triplett’s death Thursday. Triplett was the third African-American selected in the 1949 draft, but he was the first of those draftees to play in a regularseason game. He played in 24 games for the Lions and Chicago Cardinals. Triplett was also the first African-American to start for Penn State, and in 1948, he and teammate Dennie Hoggard became the first African-Americans to play in the Cotton Bowl . “This is a tremendous loss for not only our football program, but the Penn State community as a whole,” Penn State coach James Franklin said in a statement. “Wally was a trailblazer as the first African-American to be drafted and play in the NFL, and his influence continues to live on. He had a profound effect on me and the team when he visited in 2015 and shared valuable lessons from his life story and ability to overcome.” Triplett was inducted into the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame this year, and his appearance in that game is part of Penn State lore. According to the school, the team was asked to consider the possibility of leaving Triplett and Hoggard at home for the game in then-segregated Dallas. Teammates responded by saying: “We are Penn State, there will be no meetings” — a reference to a previous Penn State team that voted to cancel a game at segregated Miami. The story remains an important part of Penn State history, especially given the school’s well-known “We Are” moniker. Triplett was drafted by the Lions in the 19th round in 1949. He played in 18 games for Detroit from 1949-50. On Oct. 29, 1950, against the Los Angeles Rams, he had 294 yards on four kickoff returns, an NFL record that lasted until 1994.

DAN CAESAR St. Louis Post-Dispatch

What a difference a year makes. Mizzou’s men’s basketball team began last season with lofty hopes, even talk of a deep run in the NCAA Tournament what with prized recruit Michael Porter Jr. on hand. But Porter was hurt early in the first game of the season and didn’t return until the postseason and was rusty as the Tigers lost both their games — one each in the SEC and NCAA tournaments. Overall, he totaled just 30 points in 53 minutes in his three games. But the pizzazz of his mere presence carried over to the team’s television schedule. The Tigers were given 18 prime-time appearances (games starting at 7 p.m. or later) after having just nine the previous year, when they finished at 8-24. Although Porter has moved on to the NBA, big things at Mizzou were expected this season from his younger brother, Jontay. But he suffered a knee injury in a preseason scrimmage and is done for the season. And so are the Tigers as a TV attraction. To wit: • They’re set for just 11 primetime appearances, none in their last five regular-season contests. • None of their first five games is on TV outlets carried in St. Louis. The game Friday (6 p.m. at Iowa State) is to be streamed on cyclones.com/watch, for a fee of about $7. The Tigers then have three contests in the Paradise Jam tourney, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, beginning Nov. 16. Those are to be streamed online at flohoops.com, which costs about $30 per month. • And perhaps the biggest indignity is that the “Braggin’ Rights” game, Mizzou’s annual battle with Illinois in St. Louis during the Christmas holiday season, has been relegated to Big Ten Network after years of having been a staple on ESPN or associated networks. This year’s matchup is set for 7 p.m. on Dec. 22, a Saturday. Last year, the hype led the Tigers to make two appearance on CBS and 14 on ESPN or ESPN2 after the previous year having none on CBS and ESPN and just two on ESPN2. They’ve regressed again, with zero games this season set for CBS. And as of now they have only one on ESPN or ESPN2 (Feb.19 vs.Kentucky),although those networks are taking a “wait-and-see” approach. There are four other MU games that possibly could end up on ESPN or ESPN2, but also could be shipped to lower-profile ESPNU. One might go to SEC Network. The bulk of the Tigers’ TV schedule this year has them on SEC Network, a joint venture between the Southeastern Conference and ESPN, which is available in fewer homes than ESPN and ESPN2. It’s where games generally end up when more high-profile networks pass on them. Last year the Tigers were on SEC Network seven times, and only once in their last 10 contests. This year they are set for 15 appearances, including their final four. That’s even more games there than they had in their disastrous season

Molina playing in Japan, games on MLB Network

Rams among most popular NFL teams on television

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, a fan favorite, is on a team of bigleague baseball players touring Japan to play a series of games against standout players from that nation. Molina shined in a tune-up game Thursday, scoring twice and going two for two with a double and an RBI while serving as designated hitter in the major leaguers’ 9-6 victory over the Yomiuri Giants. The rest of the excursion will consist of games between the big leaguers and a squad of Japanese All-Stars, and all will be shown on MLB Network both live (in the wee hours in St. Louis) as well as on tape at a time later that day that is more palatable for most viewers.

Which are the most popular NFL teams on television? This is no trick question, the answer is the list of old reliables — along with the 8-1 Los Angeles Rams crashing the party. Fox Sports executive vice president of research Michael Mulvihill tweeted this week that the Packers and Cowboys each have played in two of the four most-watched games this season, through Monday night. Among the top 10 viewed games, the Patriots, Packers and Cowboys have been in three of them and the Rams have played in two. The top 10 (rating for Thursday night’s game was not yet available):

THE SCHEDULE Friday • 3:30 am. (replay at 7 p.m.) Saturday • 3:30 a.m. (replay at 4 p.m.) Sunday • 4 a.m. (replay at 7 p.m.) Tuesday • 3:30 a.m. (replay at 7 p.m.) Wednesday • 4 a.m. (replay at 7 p.m.) Thursday • 3 a.m. (replay at 7 p.m.)

of two years ago, when they appeared on SEC Network 14 times, including their final nine games.

AREA OVERVIEW Among other major college basketball programs in the region, St. Louis University already has had a game on Fox Sports Midwest and has nine more on that outlet or FSM Plus, eight on CBS Sports Network and others on NBCSN, ESPN2, ESPNU and FS2. Illinois continues to have most of its games on a readily available TV outlet (ESPN, FS1, Big Ten Network, etc.) But Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, which has had eight games on Fox Sports Midwest the last two years, has no contests set to appear on television this season. It is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference, which struck a deal with ESPN to place contests on ESPN Plus, a subscription-based streaming service that costs about $5 a month. “It was an opportunity to streamline everything the OVC was doing,” said Joe Pott, who oversees the Cougars’ broadcasting operations and also is its basketball play-by-play voice on radio and did games on Fox Sports Midwest. “I know there was a financial commitment from ESPN to the Ohio Valley Conference. It’s unfortunate for us, we’ve enjoyed our relationship with Fox Sports Midwest greatly. But they are competitors of ESPN, so we understood that. And that’s the way we go.” The Missouri Valley Conference, of which Southern Illinois University Carbondale and Missouri State are members, also has a deal with ESPN Plus. But while some of those schools’ games will appear exclusively on that paystreaming operation, they also will have a significant number of contests on TV outlets including FS1, SEC Network, CBS Sports Network, ESPN2, ESPNU and the MVC Network (which is carried by Fox Sports Midwest).

FOOTBALL FOLLIES NFL television ratings are up a bit this year to reverse a trend of recent seasons, but there have been some duds on the recent national schedule and more are on the way, a trend of clunkers that began last week. That Thursday night contest, Oakland-San Francisco, matched last-place teams that each had won one game beforehand. The most recent “Monday Night Football” game pitted below-.500 teams — Tennessee and Dallas each were 3-4. While this week’s Thursday matchup was good (Carolina was 6-2 when it kicked off its game in Pittsburgh, which was 5-2-1), the upcoming Sunday night matchup is of teams that don’t have winning records — Dallas (now 3-5) is at Philadelphia (4-4). It gets worse. The next Monday night contest has the New York Giants (1-7) at San Francisco (2-7). There isn’t another blockbuster prime-time telecast looming until Nov. 19, when the Rams face Kansas City in Mexico City in a battle of teams that currently have just one loss.

Dosunmu powers Illinois to victory Freshman has 18-point opener

ILLINOIS 99, EVANSVILLE 60

BY JOEY WAGNER Decatur (Ill.) Herald & Review

C H A M PA I G N , I L L . • Ayo Dosunmu is home. He came to Champaign as a heralded five-star guard from Chicago Morgan Park and filled the stat sheet in his Illinois-debut on the way to a convincing 99-60 win over Evansville in Thursday’s season opener at the State Farm Center. A steal to set up a transition basket? Dosunmu was there. A crafty layup through the lane leading to a finger roll? Dosunmu had that, too. No-look passes in transition? Check. He finished with 18 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals for the Illini (1-0). He was one of five players to score in double figures for an Illinois (1-0) team that was fueled by defense, forcing 26 Evansville (0-1) turnovers. In his post-game press conference Dosunmu talked about growing up and watching players such as John Stockton, Magic Johnson and Stephen Curry — taking little bits of basketball from each of them. For months Dosunmu had been thinking about the opportunity to showcase those skills at the State Farm Center. “The emotions were incredible, playing for my home state and finally getting out there,” Dosunmu said. “Competing and having a jersey on for real, this game really counted, it was tremendous. I just wanted to come out and play hard.”

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS

Illinois’ Giorgi Bezhanishvili soars to the basket against Evansville in Thursday’s 99-60 victory. Bezhanishvili had 7 points and 10 rebounds.

Dosunmu gave head coach Brad Underwood more than enough to like in his Illini debut. Perhaps nothing stood out to Underwood as much as Dosunmu’s six rebounds. “We’ve spent a lot of time in the last few days talking about rebounding the basketball,” Underwood said. “He’s a guy who when we play these three guards (Dosunmu, Trent Frazier and Andres Feliz) together is going to have to give us some rebounding. It’s a little unusual for him, it’s something new, especially on the offensive end to go rebound the basketball. I think that shows how cerebral he is and how willing a participant he is in winning.” “In the open court, Ayo’s a ton. He’s got a variety of moves to go with his speed. He’s got size, he hits floaters, he hit threes tonight. As well as he played offensively, I thought he set the tone early defensively on (Evansville

NOTEBOOK Wieskamp leads Iowa past UMKC Freshman Joe Wieskamp scored 15 points and Iowa overcame a lackluster start to beat UMKC 77-63 on Thursday night in a regional game of the 2K Empire Classic in Iowa City, Iowa. The Hawkeyes (1-0) got 12 points from Jordan Bohannon, as well as 12 points, eight rebounds and five assists from Tyler Cook (Chaminade). Iowa had a 34-26 lead at halftime after shooting just 32 percent from the field and 29.4 percent from 3-point range against a UMKC squad that lost in opener, 76-45 to Loyola-Chicago. Bohannon scored 10 second-half points as the Hawkeyes shot 13 of 22 (59 percent) and made 15 of 22 free throws after halftime. The Kangaroos (0-2) were led by Brandon McKissic (SLUH) and Xavier Bishop, who had 14 points apiece. Oklahoma State’s Weathers returning after suspension • Oklahoma State guard Michael Weathers, who was charged with grand larceny in September and suspended from the team, has been allowed to return to practice. Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton made the announcement in a statement on social media. According to Payne County court records, Weathers pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of knowingly concealing stolen property and received a two-year deferred sentence. He made a public apology on social media on Thursday for what he called a “terrible decision” to steal a purse. Boynton said Weathers has shown “sincere remorse.” He said Weathers will “begin the process of regaining the trust of his teammates and coaches as it relates to returning to games.” UConn opens Hurley era with win • Dan Hurley had a successful coaching debut at UConn as his Huskies opened their season with an 80-70 win over Morehead State in Storrs, Conn. Josh Carlton scored 17 points and pulled down eight rebounds. Jalen Adams scored 16 points and Alterique Gilbert added 15 for the Huskies, who led by just four points at halftime. Lamontray Harris had 16 points and Malek Green 14 for Morehead State. The student section in Gampel Pavilion held up letters that spelled out “Hello Hurley” and cheered loudly as the new coach made his way to the bench before the game. The 45-year-old, who led Rhode Island to NCAA Tournament appearances in each of his last two seasons, remained on his feet the entire game, gesturing and yelling for the Huskies to push the ball or urging the crowd to stand up and cheer. Louisville escapes Nicholls State in Mack’s debut • Steven Enoch had 15 points including several key free throws down the stretch, Darius Perry added 14 points and homestanding Louisville held off Nicholls State 85-72 to win Chris Mack’s debut as Cardinals coach. The Cardinals (1-0) had to work to put away the stubborn Colonels (1-1), whose 3-point shooting got them within 68-66 with 4:16 remaining. V.J. King (12 points) made a free throw, Perry added a layup and Enoch made two more from the line to make it 73-66. Associated Press

guard) K.J. Wright. A pretty good first night.” Dosunmu slid perfectly into Underwood’s system. Underwood gave the heralded freshman a blank canvas and let him paint. As far as first collegiate games go, it was a work of art. “Coach Underwood never made me doubt my abilities,” Dosunmu said. “He told me to just play how I know how to play. As the game got going, I won’t lie, at the beginning of the game I was nervous playing for the first time in front of everybody, but it was fun.” Senior Aaron Jordan led all scorers with 19 points, including knocking down five of Illinois’ 12 3-pointers. Feliz had 16 points, Kipper Nichols had 13 points and Frazier had 10 points — all in the first half — and seven assists. It was Jordan’s last first game in an Illinois jersey, after four sometimes tumultuous years be-

fore finding his groove under Underwood. “Just being out there with those guys, it means everything to me,” Jordan said. “I love those guys. I love this team.” Jordan learned a lot about his team in the sense that the Illini can play fast, running up and down the court and scoring in bunches. When the Illini got a rebound, 40 of them in total, on Thursday, they were off and running. In fact, Jordan hasn’t seen a pace that matched what the Illini showed. Dosunmu learned something more. “I learned if I want an assist, drive and kick it to (Jordan),” Dosunmu said. The Illini went on three separate first-half runs where they scored in double figures while

Evansville was held scoreless. It started with a 10-0 run that took two minutes, 12 seconds, followed by a 13-0 run, where Aaron Jordan scored eight straight points before a 12-0 run all but ended the game before halftime. Illinois led 53-22 at halftime and extended the lead to up to 40 points in the second half. After battling foul trouble in last week’s exhibition win against Illinois Wesleyan, freshman big man Giorgi Bezhanishvili avoided foul trouble on Thursday. He picked up his first foul in the second half, which was immediately followed by a technical foul. But Bezhanishvili was an anchor on the glass, hauling in 10 rebounds to go along with his seven points a block and a thunderous alley oop from Kipper Nichols in the first half. “The last three practices coach has really pushed me hard,” Bezhanishvili said of his rebounding. “...It was in my mind going into the game. The first thing I have to do is rebound. I was aggressive on the glass and it just happened.” Dosunmu set the tone on Oct. 19, 2017, when he announced his commitment at a Jordan Brand store in Chicago, coming out from the back in a white Illinois polo. On Thursday, he was announced in the starting lineups fourth, just ahead of Frazier. It was home. “The one thing that Ayo has is extreme pride, and not just in himself and his family and his city and his state, but this university,” Underwood said. “That becomes very evident when you talk to him and he chose to come to this university because he wanted to play here.”

if you don’t challenge yourself? You owe it to yourself and you owe it to your fans to be able to play that level of competition on the road. There’s nothing better than playing quality opponents in a great atmosphere. It’s one of the best atmospheres in all of college basketball.” “To play on the road on a Friday night you can’t ask for anything more as a ball player. I know I’m excited about it.” Unfortunately for viewers at home, there are only two ways to watch the game. Cyclones.TV, Iowa State’s subscriber-only online streaming network, will broadcast the game. Also, Mediacom is making the game available to its cable subscribers in the state of Missouri on Channel 22. A different sense of excitement surrounded last year’s visit from Iowa State in the Tigers’ season opener, a game that marked Martin’s debut as coach and the first regular-season game for prized recruit Michael Porter Jr. That didn’t go as planned — Porter checked out in the game’s second minute with leg pain and didn’t play again until the SEC tournament — but Martin’s team won the game 74-59 in front of a sold-out Mizzou Arena. The Tigers figure to face another frenzied setting at Hilton, where the Cyclones drew nearly 14,000 for Tuesday’s opener against Alabama State. Friday’s game is the start of a huge weekend for the Cyclones, whose No. 23 football team hosts Baylor the next day. Steve Prohm’s Cyclones are shorthanded, with three key players out of the rotation, but for the Tigers to manage an early road victory, they’ll need better production from their most experienced players. Senior point guard Jordan Geist and senior forward Kevin Puryear connected on just three of 17 shots in Tuesday’s win over Central Arkansas, going 0 of 9 from 3-point range. With a rotation that features four newcomers, plus sophomore Mitchell Smith, who hasn’t played in nearly two years, the Tigers (1-0) need more steady contributions from their veterans. Puryear pulled down 10 rebounds and Geist had three assists, but without a proven scorer on the roster this season, the Tigers expect more from their two leaders. Martin wasn’t overly concerned. “If those guys get shots, we’re fine,” Martin said. “I’d like to think those shots will fall, the ones they shot. … I was happy Kevin had 10 rebounds. I said, ‘OK, now let’s add to those rebounds.’ I didn’t think Geist defended at the level he normally defends at. That was my issue with him. It wasn’t so much about offensive shot selection.” “Shooting-wise they probably had an off night,” said freshman guard Javon Pickett after scoring seven points in his college debut. “But being leaders and encouraging other guys, that’s what helped everybody else knock down shots, just from their energy.

they’ll knock down shots and bounce back.” In the 235th meeting of the two programs, but the first since Mizzou left the Big 12 for the SEC, the Tigers face an Iowa State team picked sixth in the Big 12 coaches preseason poll but without critical pieces of its usual lineup. Earlier this week, Cyclones coach Steve Prohm announced sophomore forward Cameron Lard, the team’s best inside threat, and senior forward Zoran Talley will be suspended until December. Junior forward Solomon Young, another key to the frontcourt, is out until January with a groin injury. That leaves a young guard-oriented rotation, led by preseason All-Big 12 pick Lindell Wiggington, senior guard Nick Weiler-Babb and four-star freshman guard Talen Horton-Tucker. “They’ve got guys who can make shots,” Martin said. “Babb is the key to what they do. As a senior guard who went from being a wing to a point guard, he really runs that team. He takes care of the ball. He can rebound. He can score when they need him to score and has a lot of dimensions to his game on both sides of the ball.” Last year’s game film doesn’t take into account two of Prohm’s newcomers: Michael Jacobson, a 6-9 junior transfer from Nebraska, was ISU’s top scorer in Tuesday’s opener with 17 points and seven rebounds; while Marial Shayok, a 6-6 senior transfer from Virginia, opened the season with 14 points, six boards and three assists Dave Matter @dave_matter on Twitter dmatter@post-dispatch.com

Steelers pour it on vs. Panthers Pittsburgh win is 5th in a row

lisberger responded with one of the finest performances of his career, completing 22 of 25 passes while spreading the ball to nine different players on his way to a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3. Roethlisberger’s first pass turned into a 75-yard touchdown pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster on Pittsburgh’s first offensive snap and his last came on a 6-yard toss to rookie Jaylen Samuels on the first play of the fourth quarter. In between he did a little bit of everything. Roethlisberger even showed off his legs, scrambling for 18 yards in the third quarter on a play that ended with Carolina safety Eric Reid getting ejected for targeting after Reid appeared to dive at Roethlisberger’s head as the quarterback attempted to slide. Reed, signed by Carolina in September six months after filing a grievance alleging collusion by the NFL to prevent teams from signing him because of his participation in racial injustice protests during the national anthem alongside former San Francisco 49ers teammate Colin Kaepernick, went out to shake Roethlisberger’s hand as a peace offering before making his way to the Carolina locker room.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t playing like a team missing Le’Veon Bell. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 328 yards and five touchdowns, James Conner ran for 65 yards and a score before leaving late with a possible concussion and the host Steelers pounded the Carolina Panthers 52-21 on Thursday night for their fifth straight victory. Antonio Brown added eight receptions for 96 yards — including a 53-yard touchdown in the second quarter — to cap an eventful day that began with the star wide receiver being cited for reckless driving after police clocked Brown’s Porsche driving over 100 mph down a busy highway in the northern city suburbs. While Bell — a three-time Pro Bowl running back who still hasn’t signed his one-year franchise tender — tweeted his thoughts as he watched on television, the Steelers (6-2-1) rolled on without him. Bell has until next Tuesday to sign a contract if he wants to play this season. His teammates have long since tired of talking about Bell’s status and at this point, the AFC North leaders appear to be doing just fine on their own. Carolina not so much. The Panthers (6-3) saw their three-game winning streak come to an abrupt halt in a city where they’ve never won. Carolina fell to 0-4 all-time in Pittsburgh and was never really in it after the Steelers scored 21 points in the game’s first 11 minutes. Cam Newton completed 23 of 29 for 193 yards and a pair of flips to Christian McCaffrey that the second-year running back turned into scores but Newton’s showdown with Roethlisberger never materialized. The Steelers sacked Newton five times and rarely let him get comfortable. Newton didn’t help matters when he threw off his back foot out of the Carolina end zone

while trying to avoid getting sacked in the first quarter. Pittsburgh linebacker Vince Williams raced under the floater and returned it 17 yards for a touchdown to give the Steelers a 14-7 lead they never came close to relinquishing. McCaffrey finished with 138 yards total offense (77 yards rushing, 61 yards receiving) and accounted for all three Pan-

ther scores but it wasn’t nearly enough. P i t ts b u rg h ’s 5 2 p o i n ts matched the most ever surrendered by the Panthers in franchise history. Carolina allowed the same total in a 52-9 loss to Oakland on Dec. 24, 2000. The Steelers held the 36-yearold Roethlisberger out of practice during the short week in an effort to keep him fresh.

COLLEGE NOTEBOOK Newman helps Wake Forest upset No. 22 NC State Jamie Newman threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Jack Freudenthal with 30 seconds left to give Wake Forest a 27-23 upset victory over No. 22 North Carolina State on Thursday night. Making his first career start, Newman was 22 of 33 for 297 yards with three touchdown passes in the second half to help the Demon Deacons (5-5, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) rally from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter. The 19.5-point underdogs earned their first road victory over a Top 25 team in a decade. Newman threw a 38-yard scoring pass to Alex Bachman before his 19-yard TD to Greg Dortch pulled Wake Forest to 23-20 with 6:07 left. N.C. State bled nearly 4 1/2 minutes off the clock before its drive stalled at the Wake Forest 20 with 1:39 left. Newman completed 5 of 8 passes on the possession that followed, taking a hit as he connected with a wide-open Freudenthal over the middle for the go-ahead score. The Wolfpack advanced to their own 49 before Finley’s final pass for the end zone was intercepted by receiver Scottie Washington — playing defensive back on the last play — to end it. Finley finished 35 of 52 for 374 yards with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Emeka Emezie and a 2-yard touchdown run for the Wolfpack (6-3, 3-3, No. 14 CFP). They have lost three of four. Notre Dame QB Wimbush gets start • No. 3 Notre Dame will start quarterback Brandon Wimbush against Florida State on Saturday for Ian Book, who is nursing an undisclosed injury, two people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. Book is not expected to play after taking a hard hit to the back and ribs last week against Northwestern, according to the people who spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because no official announcement was made. Book replaced Wimbush as the starter in the fourth game of the season for the Fighting Irish (9-0, No. 3 CFP). He is completing 74.5 percent of his passes, tops in the FBS, for 1,824 yards, with 15 touchdowns and four interceptions. With Book starting, the Fighting Irish have averaged 38 points per game. They averaged 23.3 in Wimbush’s three starts. Wimbush, a senior, was the starter last season for the Irish, but his inconsistent and inaccurate passing led to coach Brian Kelly making the switch to Book. Wimbush has completed 50.8 percent for his career, with 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He has been an effective runner, with 1,044 yards and 16 touchdowns. Notre Dame goes into its final home game of the season looking to stay undefeated and in position to reach the College Football

Former Marshall University standout dies • A former Marshall University standout running back who led the team to a conference championship has died. News outlets report 25-year-old Devon Johnson died Tuesday at Bluefield Regional Medical Center. Marshall head coach Doc Holliday learned about Johnson’s passing after Tuesday’s practice. Holliday says he was “shocked and saddened” to learn of Johnson’s death. The cause of death was not known Thursday. Wisconsin’s Sagapolu out for season • Wisconsin standout nose tackle Olive Sagapolu will miss the rest of the season with a right arm injury, while quarterback Alex Hornibrook remains questionable for the game at No. 21 Penn State on Saturday. Coach Paul Chryst says Sagapolu had surgery on Wednesday after getting hurt two weeks ago against Northwestern. The 6-foot-2 Sagapolu regularly drew double teams that helped free up playmaking inside linebackers T.J. Edwards and Ryan Connelly. The athletic senior finishes with 23 tackles, two sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery. Freshman Bryson Williams will take over full time as the starter. Hornibrook is in the concussion protocol for the second time in three weeks. Sophomore Jack Coan would make his second career start if Hornibrook can’t go. Associated Press

Mack, Robinson close to return • Two-time All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack and top receiver Allen Robinson look as if they’re just about ready to return after missing the Chicago Bears’ past two games because of injuries.

McCown to start for Jets • Josh McCown will start at quarterback for the New York Jets against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in place of injured rookie Sam Darnold. Coach Todd Bowles said Thursday he has ruled out Darnold to start because of a strained right foot, but hasn’t determined whether the rookie will be inactive for the game.

game and I thought it was a great message,” Odom said. “He and I spoke and I said, ‘We need more of that. Keep coming. Keep pushing and lead our team because you’ve earned the right, earned the opportunity to be vocal when we need it.’” Crockett’s message was to use the feeling the players had after the loss as fuel for a better performance the next week. He followed his own advice, rushing for 114 yards on 21 carries and a touchdown at Florida. “No matter where you are in the game, don’t ever give up,’’ Crockett said. “Honestly, Kentucky didn’t have any life. But they fought back and came back. As much as I hate to say it, (Kentucky) winning taught me a lot.” Crockett has always been vocal in the locker room and at practice, offensive lineman Paul Adams said, but he’s been a little louder and a bit more energetic this season, especially the past couple of weeks, telling his team, “We can’t let our foot off the gas pedal,” Adams said. Part of that leadership has to do with the trend of Missouri’s season – starting 0-4 in the SEC before beating Florida – and part has to do with the way Crockett is playing. After his record-breaking rookie year in which he set Missouri freshman records for rushing yards in a season (1,062), rushing yards in a single game (225) and rushing touchdowns in a season (10), Crockett’s season last fall was cut short when he suffered a shoulder injury against Georgia. This year, he feels as good as ever, mentally and physically. He said he’s back to playing the way he’s used to playing. Jeff Weaver, his high school coach in Arkansas, has talked to Crockett about his maturity and said how much Crockett has grown since his days at Christian Academy in Little Rock. “I think the things he’s been through, he’s realized now how hard it is to be successful and what it takes to stay there,” said Weaver, who now coaches at Russellville High. “He’s proud of the man he’s becoming, and I think a lot of those things that he’s been through are a big factor. “While he was very disappointed to be injured, it’s given him insight on what he’s got to do to be a successful man.” That shows in the running back rotation. Crockett swaps series with sophomore Larry Rountree, who filled Crockett’s role last year and has started the last seven games. Freshman Tyler Badie, slowed this week with a sprained foot, has been part of the rotation as well. Instead of brooding about not starting, Crockett

has made the most of his role. Through nine games, Rountree and Crockett have each carried the ball 122 times, with Rountree going for 666 yards and nine touchdowns and Crockett at 577 yards and six scores. Missouri and Georgia are the only SEC teams with two runners among the league’s top 12 rushers. Crockett and Rountree talked early in the season about how it doesn’t matter who starts, Crockett said, as long as both do what they can to help Missouri win games. “Seeing Larry go out there and do his thing — there’s enough food for everyone to eat,” Crockett said. “It’s not one of those things where I’m like, ‘OK, he’s starting, so if I teach him this then he’s going to play good and take over my role.’ No, it’s not like that at all. I want this guy to do good because that means we win. It’s all about the bigger picture.” Crockett is learning to lean on his teammates. And his teammates are leaning on him.

Steelers pour it on vs. Panthers Pittsburgh win is 5th in a row

of 29 for 193 yards and a pair of flips to Christian McCaffrey that the second-year running back turned into scores, but Newton’s showdown with Roethlisberger never materialized. The Steelers sacked Newton five times and rarely let him get comfortable. McCaffrey finished with 138 yards total offense (77 yards rushing, 61 yards receiving) and accounted for all three Panther touchdowns but it wasn’t nearly enough. “We had a lot of our noses bleeding early on,” Newton said. “We’ve got to stop it and keep things going in our favor. We just got outplayed today.” Newton didn’t help matters when he threw off his back foot out of the Carolina end zone while trying to avoid getting sacked in the first quarter. Pittsburgh linebacker Vince Williams raced under the floater and returned it 17 yards for a touchdown to give the Steelers a 14-7 lead they never relinquished. Roethlisberger’s rainbow to Brown put Pittsburgh up 31-14 at the half and when Roethlisberger found Vance McDonald in the back on the end zone on the Steelers’ first drive of the second half, the competitive portion of the evening was over. Pittsburgh’s 52 points matched the most ever surrendered by the Panthers in franchise history. Carolina allowed the same total in a 52-9 loss to Oakland on Dec. 24, 2000. “They did some good things against us,” Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said. “We made too many mistakes early on to give ourselves an opportunity to win a football game.”

Ben Roethlisberger’s first pass went for a touchdown. His last did the same. And in between the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and his red-hot team put together systematic 52-21 dismantling of Carolina on Thursday night that left little doubt about their depth and their talent regardless of whether Le’Veon Bell ever shows up for work or not. Ten different Steelers touched the ball on offense. Six of them scored. None of them were named Bell. While the threetime Pro Bowl running back tweeted his thoughts from home while waiting — and waiting — to sign his one-year franchise tender, Pittsburgh ripped off its fifth straight victory. “Really big performance against a really good team on a short week so there is a lot to be proud of,” Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said. “But we are probably not that good.” Maybe not, but Pittsburgh (62-1) looked every bit the part of legitimate contender in the AFC, perhaps for the first time this season. Roethlisberger completed 22 of 25 passes for 328 yards and five touchdowns while posting a perfect quarterback rating of 158.3. James Conner, who has filled in capably during Bell’s self-imposed sabbatical, ran for 65 yards and a score before being evaluated for a concussion late. Antonio Brown added eight receptions for 96 yards — including a 53-yard touchdown in the second quarter — to cap an eventful day that began with the star wide receiver being cited for reckless driving after police clocked his Porsche driving over 100 mph down a busy highway in the northern city suburbs. “This is what we expected,” Roethlisberger said. “We knew we were going to have to put up a lot of points. We did that. The defense, they were playing like their hair was on fire.” Bell has until Tuesday to sign

a contract if he wants to play this season. His teammates have long since tired of talking about Bell’s status and at this point. “I’m not going to comment on someone who’s not in the locker room right now,” Roethlisberger said. And why bother? For three hours on Thursday night Pittsburgh looked every bit as potent without Bell as it did with him. If he returns, they insist they’ll

welcome him with open arms. If he doesn’t, they are intent on keeping the train rolling. The Panthers (6-3) saw their three-game win streak come to an abrupt halt in a city where they’ve never won. Carolina fell to 0-4 all-time in Pittsburgh and was never really in it after the Steelers scored 21 points in the game’s first 11 minutes. Cam Newton completed 23

COLLEGE NOTEBOOK Newman helps Wake Forest upset No. 22 NC State Jamie Newman threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Jack Freudenthal with 30 seconds left to give Wake Forest a 27-23 upset victory over No. 22 North Carolina State on Thursday night. Making his first career start, Newman was 22 of 33 for 297 yards with three touchdown passes in the second half to help the Demon Deacons (5-5, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) rally from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter. The 19.5-point underdogs earned their first road victory over a Top 25 team in a decade. Newman threw a 38-yard scoring pass to Alex Bachman before his 19-yard TD to Greg Dortch pulled Wake Forest to 23-20 with 6:07 left. N.C. State bled nearly 4 1/2 minutes off the clock before its drive stalled at the Wake Forest 20 with 1:39 left. Newman completed 5 of 8 passes on the possession that followed, taking a hit as he connected with a wide-open Freudenthal over the middle for the go-ahead score. The Wolfpack advanced to their own 49 before Finley’s final pass for the end zone was intercepted by receiver Scottie Washington — playing defensive back on the last play — to end it. Finley finished 35 of 52 for 374 yards with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Emeka Emezie and a 2-yard touchdown run for the Wolfpack (6-3, 3-3, No. 14 CFP). They have lost three of four. Notre Dame QB Wimbush gets start • No. 3 Notre Dame will start quarterback Brandon Wimbush against Florida State on Saturday for Ian Book, who is nursing an undisclosed injury, two people familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. Book is not expected to play after taking a hard hit to the back and ribs last week against Northwestern, according to the people who spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because no official announcement was made. Book replaced Wimbush as the starter in the fourth game of the season for the Fighting Irish (9-0, No. 3 CFP). He is completing 74.5 percent of his passes, tops in the FBS, for 1,824 yards, with 15 touchdowns and four interceptions. With Book starting, the Fighting Irish have averaged 38 points per game. They averaged 23.3 in Wimbush’s three starts. Wimbush, a senior, was the starter last season for the Irish, but his inconsistent and inaccurate passing led to coach Brian Kelly making the switch to Book. Wimbush has completed 50.8 percent for his career, with 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He has been an effective runner, with 1,044 yards and 16 touchdowns.

News outlets report 25-year-old Devon Johnson died Tuesday at Bluefield Regional Medical Center. Marshall head coach Doc Holliday learned about Johnson’s passing after Tuesday’s practice. Holliday says he was “shocked and saddened” to learn of Johnson’s death. The cause of death was not known Thursday.

The 6-foot-2 Sagapolu regularly drew double teams that helped free up playmaking inside linebackers T.J. Edwards and Ryan Connelly. The athletic senior finishes with 23 tackles, two sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery. Freshman Bryson Williams will take over full time as the starter. Hornibrook is in the concussion protocol for the second time in three weeks. Sophomore Jack Coan would make his second career start if Hornibrook can’t go. Associated Press

Reid targets Roethlisberger • Carolina safety Eric Reid was ejected in the third quarter after being called for targeting when he dived at Roethlisberger’s head as the Pittsburgh quarterback was sliding at the end of an 18yard scramble. Several Steelers, most of them offensive linemen, took exception with the hit and a brief scrum ensued. Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey said Roethlisberger offered to pay any fines the linemen may accrue for sticking up for him.

Cardinals were both shopper and seller CARDINALS • FROM C1

The annual general manager meetings concluded Thursday morning and officials from all 30 teams and agents scattered to the golf courses, highways and airports, racing the media to the latter two. The Cardinals left the San Diego area having mapped multiple avenues they could take this winter to improve. The Cardinals, like most teams, spent the week operating on parallel tracks. They were both shopper and seller when talking with teams about trades. They are interested in learning what Arizona’s asking price is for first baseman and Silver Slugger-winner Paul Goldschmidt, just as they tried to assess what they could get in return from teams interested in outfielder Jose Martinez. They met with agents like Scott Boras, who has multiple players that the Cardinals wish to discuss, and they talked with agents who have no players the Cardinals covet, at this point. They heard prices, potential and posturing. So much posturing. So much prelude. “It’s pretty premature at this point to make any conclusions,” said John Mozeliak, the team’s president of baseball operations. “I think these meetings are always about sort of understanding really what the next four to six weeks are going to look like between getting a better feel for what the free-agent market looks like or how it’s shaping up, as well as getting a good idea about what the trade partners might look like.” The Cardinals leave the GM meetings with the same feel for their roster they had when they arrived. They could name a starter at every position. They could fill out a rotation, man a bullpen and even sort through a handful of internal options for lefthanded relief. They have $50 million remaining on a contract with a switchhitter, Dexter Fowler, who they have advertised as their starting right fielder. They told anyone asking this past week that they are content with Paul DeJong at shortstop, see him as a reliable fielder, and have more interest in adding a corner infielder that hits with thump. And preferably lefthanded. But not necessarily. What they intend to “chase,” Girsch and Mozeliak both said multiple times this week, are “upgrades.” They would prefer a lefthanded bat, but they’re not going to walk away from a righthanded bat that reshapes the middle of their lineup, like a Goldschmidt. They recognize the roster lacks a superstar and aren’t ignoring the availability of at least one — namely outfielder Bryce Harper — in this market. They see how a series of moves rather than a mammoth one could also achieve the same “upgrade” mandate, and they

can explore all these things at once. The Cardinals have varying interest in lefty relievers Zach Britton and Andrew Miller, though they have some caution with the veteran Miller and his recent missed time. And at the same time, the Cardinals have gathered intel on Harper’s desires, Mike Moustakas’ market and Josh Donaldson, too. They multitasked. Girsch referred to Martinez as “a heck of an asset to hold onto if we decide to hold onto him.” Martinez led the Cardinals with a .305 average this past season, and in the previous two seasons he’s hit .306 with a .478 slugging percentage and a stout .847 OPS. The Cardinals are weighing whether keeping Martinez as a parttime player and bat off the bench has more value to them than the return they could get. The Cardinals will also explore trading Jedd Gyorko this winter if other moves come to fruition and his role diminishes. The GM meetings aren’t the starters’ block for the great offseason race. This is more the pre-race stretch. The contenders are milling about, testing their flexibility, chatting a bit, maybe even sharing a shoulder for balance. Some are bowing out with strains. Between the phone calls, texts and emails of October and early November and the hot-house of December’s winter meetings in Las Vegas when deals are now largely done via text message and phone calls by cloistered teams, the GM meetings are a different creature. Executives mingle. They have meetings, they gather in the lobby, they cross paths in the hallways, and they chat to see how and if needs mesh. The GM meetings offer what teams have at this point in the offseason — time. Having spent it, the Cardinals and other executives returned Thursday to their corners to weigh the gathered info and options and decide what to spend next: Their assets, their talent, or straight cash. “We can be pretty patient,” Girsch said. “We have a team that we’re pretty comfortable with. We don’t want to go to spring training without upgrades, but we also don’t have to be in a hurry. That depends on the market. That depends on how the trade market goes. If you’re too patient, you end up with limited options. If you appropriately patient, you end up with the deal you want.”

OFFSEASON ATTACHMENTS The first wave of offseason suggestions and information provided Cardinals players this winter arrived, as scheduled, during that first week of November as PDF files. Visits come later. The Cardinals’ coaching staff and front office sent personalized data files to players earlier this month that gave them statistical and visual examples of what worked, what didn’t, and what could be

improved. The files did not include videos — yet, said one official — but did have analytics, charts and even heat maps for players to visualize areas of success and work. “And then we had followup conversations,” Girsch said. “The initial summaries of the conversations and the information has been extremely positive. Players really seem to like to see what they need to work on, what went well, what didn’t go well, and what are the areas of improvement that we see. It’s — what can be worked on?” The Cardinals also intend to dispatch members of the performance department, training staff and manager Mike Shildt’s coaching group to meet with players. Specialists, such as a nutritionist, will be available to players too, as some have been in the past. The files, the possible videos, the forthcoming visits are all strands of the “accountability” web that Mozeliak said the team intended to weave through this winter for players.

GENESIS, OF A RELIEVER On the verge of being added to the 40man roster so they don’t lose him in the Rule 5 draft, prospect Genesis Cabrera is also getting familiar with a role in winter ball that the Cardinals think the lefty could have in the coming season. Genesis, 22, has been pitching exclusively in relief for Licey in the Dominican Republic’s winter league, and between appearances he has been talking and working with coaches about the workout schedule and regimen of a reliever. The lefty, acquired at the trade deadline from Tampa Bay as part of the Tommy Pham deal, is the top power lefty pitcher the Cardinals have. He often gets compared to Carlos Martinez because of his size, his build and the fact he slings 97mph fastballs. But from the left. This past summer, Cabrera went 8-9 with a .417 ERA in 27 games (25 starts), and that included a 1-3 turn with a 4.74 ERA in five starts for Class AA Springfield. The Cardinals promoted him to Triple-A Memphis for the playoffs and used him in relief. He saw the expected spike in velocity and put himself in less trouble with his mercurial command. For Licey, Cabrera has thrown 5 2/3 innings over eight appearances and struck out five against two walks. He has a 3.18 ERA. The deadline for protecting eligible players on the 40-man roster is later this month. The Cardinals have a handful of decisions to make with infielder Max Schrock, pitcher Junior Fernandez, Cabrera, and a few others. Cabrera is expected to be added, officials say.

MLB NOTEBOOK Molina shines as MLB All-Stars beat Japan’s Giants J.T. Realmuto and Amed Rosario drove in two runs each to lead the MLB All-Stars over the Yomiuri Giants 9-6 on Thursday in a warm-up game ahead of their sixgame exhibition series against Japan’s national team. Juan Soto hit a double off the roof of Tokyo Dome in the third inning that scored Yadier Molina from second to give the MLB team a 4-0 lead. Molina scored twice and went two for two with a double and an RBI while serving as designated hitter. The series begins Friday with three games on consecutive nights in Tokyo followed by one game in Hiroshima on Tuesday and two games in Nagoya on Wednesday and Thursday. During the series, pitchers will not be allowed to throw more than 80 pitches per game. If a pitcher throws more than 50 pitches, he must have four days of rest before throwing in another game. Pirates keep Kang • Jung Ho Kang is staying with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Pittsburgh and the third baseman agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract that includes $2.5 million in performance bonuses based on plate appearances: $625,000 each for 200, 300, 400 and 500. The deal was announced a week after Pittsburgh declined a $5.5 million club option for Kang, triggering a $250,000 buyout. Kang was a star in his native South Korea when the Pirates signed him to an $11 million, four-year deal in January 2015. He finished third in NL Rookie of the Year balloting after hitting 15 homers and driving in 58 runs in 2015, when Pittsburgh won 98 games. It would be the high point of Kang’s time with the Pirates. The 31-year-old didn’t play in the U.S. between September 2016 and June 2018 because of visa issues connected to three DUI arrests in South Korea. He made it back to the majors with Pittsburgh in September and went 2 for 6 during the final weekend of the season. Smith dealt to Mariners • Mallex Smith was made a promise by Seattle general manager Jerry Dipoto when he was acquired for a second time by the Mariners after an initial tenure that lasted less than two hours. “Dipoto didn’t guarantee anything, but he said I at least have 78 minutes,” Smith joked. “We’ll see.” Smith is back with the Mariners as part of a five-player deal between Seattle and Tampa Bay that landed the Rays catcher Mike Zunino and outfielder Guillermo Heredia. Smith, 25, stole a career-best 40 bases this year and was caught 12 times. He hit .296, tied for the major league lead with 10 triples and had 40 RBIs. He is not eligible for free agency until after the 2022 season. He signed with San Diego in 2012, was traded to Atlanta in December 2014 and was dealt to the Mariners in January 2017, then sent to the Rays on the same day in a trade that shipped left-hander Drew Smyly to Seattle. Owners plan vote on new Manfred term • Baseball owners plan to vote on a new term for Commissioner Rob Manfred, a new television contract with Fox and an agreement for in-game cut-ins with the subscription video streaming service DAZN when they meet next week in Atlanta, a person familiar with the agenda told The Associated Press. Manfred was elected commissioner in August 2014 to succeed Bud Selig and started a five-year term the following Jan. 25. The person said Manfred’s new term likely will be for five years. Fox and Turner Broadcasting are in the midst of eight-year agreements through 2021 in which Fox has exclusive rights to the World Series and All-Star Game, splits the League Championship Series with Turner and shares the Division Series with Turner and the MLB Network. DAZN (pronounced Da-Zone), which launched this year, has been negotiating a $300 million, three-year deal with MLB, the person said. Former ESPN president John Skipper is the chairman of DAZN’s parent company.

U.S. women’s soccer beats Portugal for 500th overall victory ASSOCIATED PRESS

Jessica McDonald, making just her second appearance for the national team, scored in the 43rd minute and the U.S. women’s national team reached its 500th victory with a 1-0 win over Portugal in Lisbon. The U.S. national team is now 500-65-74 overall since its inception in 1985. With the victory, the Americans remain undefeated this year at 17 wins and two ties. The team has an unbeaten streak of 27 games (24 wins, three ties) dating to a 1-0 loss to Australia in the Tournament of Nations. The streak comes as the U.S. team prepares for the World Cup next year in France. The defending World Cup champions qualified for the tournament last month at the CONCACAF women’s championship. The United States is currently the top-ranked team in the world, while Portugal is ranked No. 33 and did not qualify for

France. McDonald, 30, who plays for the North Carolina Courage of the National Women’s Soccer League, started for the United States. Her rebound goal was her first for the national team. McDonald had a pair of goals for the Courage in a 3-0 victory over the Portland Thorns for the NWSL championship this season and she was named that game’s Most Valuable Player. Midfielder Danielle Colaprico, who plays for the NWSL’s Chicago Red Stars, made her first appearance for the national team as a sub in the second half. University of North Carolina sophomore defender Emily Fox started in her first appearance with the team. The U.S. team was without Christen Press and Tobin Heath because of personal commitments. The United States plays Scotland on Tuesday to wrap up a two-match European trip before taking the rest of the year off.

Maroon to be healthy scratch St. Louisan off to slow start with no goals in the first 13 games BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Post-Dispatch

In a season where the Blues have good roster depth and have experienced little in the way of major injuries, several capable players have found themselves as healthy scratches. Add St. Louisan Pat Maroon to the list. The Big Rig will remain parked Friday against San Jose. “He’s not gonna play,” coach Mike Yeo said following Thursday’s practice. “It’s been very frustrating for him, which is understandable. ... First off, we know how important it is for him to put that (Blues) jersey on. What that means to him and how he wants to contribute. “Secondly, he’s betting on himself this year obviously. We know how important that is.” Maroon, a forward from Oakville High, signed a one-year, $1.75 million free-agent contract in July to play for his hometown team. Through 13 games, he has seven assists but no goals, beginning the year on the top line with Ryan O’Reilly and Vladimir Tarasenko. He was dropped to the fourth line during Saturday’s 5-1 loss to Minnesota and stayed there in Tuesday’s 4-1 victory over Carolina, while still seeing duty on the first power-play unit. “We saw a lot of good things despite him not scoring,” Yeo said. “His forechecking. His puck presence in the offensive zone. His physicality, his power play. All these things. I think that some things can start to get in your head and obviously confidence plays a part in that, so I think maybe a little reset here can help him out.”

SOSHNIKOV IN Sitting Maroon means Nikita Soshnikov joins the lineup for the first time since coming off injured reserve Oct. 31. After three games as a healthy scratch, Sosh-

SHARKS TV/Radio • Fox Sports Midwest, KMOX (1120 AM) When/Where • 7 p.m. Friday, Enterprise Center About the Sharks • Loaded with star power and firepower, San Jose once again figures to be a leading contender in the Western Conference. Up front, Evander Kane has fit in nicely since being acquired at the trade deadline last season. Joe Thornton played in his 1,500th game Thursday against Dallas. Joe Pavelski is still popping in goals at age 34, and Logan Couture is coming off the third 30-goal season of his career. On defense, Brent Burns is averaging more than a point a game but Erik Karlsson, acquired in September from Ottawa, is off to a slow start.

nikov finally makes his season debut, playing on a line with Tyler Bozak and Alexander Steen against San Jose. “They’re both good players, I just have to make the most of it,” Soshnikov said. “They both can play 200 feet, they can play offense and defense, so we just have to work hard in order to get offense and defense.” Call it the Leafs Line, since all three once played for the Toronto Maple Leafs. “This will be a good chance for him,” Yeo said. “He’s playing with a guy in (Bozak) that he’s familiar with, two guys that are very responsible. I don’t expect perfection without the puck with Sosh. That’s not what I’m looking for. What I’m looking for is for his speed to be a difference-

THOMAS STAYING Robert Thomas is scheduled to play in his all-important 10th game against San Jose, as strong an indication as possible that the rookie center will spend this season with the Blues and won’t be sent back to junior hockey. “I think the fact that he’s in the lineup probably answers some questions for you guys,” Yeo told reporters. “Like I said, I’m just treating him as a player. My concern is not the nine-game mark or anything else. “My concern is his development and our team. We’ve seen a lot of progress in him from the start of the year.” Once Thomas plays his 10th game, his entry-level pro contract kicks in. If the Blues send Thomas back to juniors before the 10th game, it doesn’t. And because Thomas is only 19, he’s ineligible to play in the minors (the American Hockey League), meaning the Blues’ only options are to keep him on their roster or send him back to juniors. With Brayden Schenn expected to miss his second game with what’s believed to be an oblique muscle injury, Thomas is scheduled to center a line flanked by Robby Fabbri and David Perron. NO PARAYKO Defenseman Colton Parayko was not at practice Thursday. Jay Bouwmeester took his place on a pairing with Vince Dunn. “Personal matter today (for Parayko) and I expect him to be in the lineup tomorrow,” Yeo said. Jim Thomas @jthom1 on Twitter jthomas@post-dispatch.com

Blues’ power play among the best in the NHL 15.4 percent. “If we would’ve come into the season and said that our power play was at this point, we probably would’ve thought we’d be battling for first place right now,” coach Mike Yeo said. Alas, the Blues are last in the Central Division at 5-5-3 entering Friday’s game against visiting San Jose. But don’t blame the power play. “For whatever reason we’ve seemed to get that going, but we’ve lost a little bit in some other areas of our game,” Yeo said. “So that’s gonna be the part that we have to make sure we maintain, and continue to build other parts of our game.” It remains to be seen whether the power play success will have staying power. But 13 games into the season, the Blues are currently w-a-y ahead of last year’s pace. Last season, the Blues didn’t score their 16th power-play goal until Dec. 1 against the Kings. That was Game 26, or twice as many games as it has taken to score 16 this season. “I think it’s a lot about communication in the locker room,” Vladimir Tarasenko said. “We talk a lot. Everybody tries to make a play for the other guy, everybody tries to support the other guy. “When it doesn’t go well, we just play simple. Don’t give up a puck too easy. We understand the responsibility of scoring on the power play in this league, and that’s what we try to do.” Four of Tarasenko’s six goals have come on the power play, placing him among the league leaders. He also has two assists with the man advantage, and he’s doing it on a first power-play unit that features four new faces. Ryan O’Reilly, Tyler Bozak and Pat Maroon are new to the team entirely. And al-

don’t try to fix people. “Everyone’s going to make mistakes. I think from the start we’ve been counting on each other and everyone’s done their job pretty well. ... We don’t see guys going down to the goal line and switching in positions, up and down low, we’re pretty much stapled in where we are and we’re in the same spots. I think that helps too.” Even so, one of the interesting aspects of Tarasenko on the power play this year is that he does seem to be moving around. He’s on the point, the wings, and even crashes the net from time to time. “It all depends,” Tarasenko said. “If it’s a broken play, it’s nothing bad to be in front of the net. But usually, I’m playing on the sides — like opposite sides. Again, if something happens, and somebody’s on my spot, there’s no need to go push him out. We just play through the game and when we can switch, we switch back.” Robby Fabbri stepped in for Schenn on the second unit Tuesday against Carolina with Schenn sidelined by an upper-body injury. That probably will be the case again Friday against San Jose. There will be a new face on the first unit as well because Maroon will be a healthy scratch. Regardless of any struggles defensively or in 5-on-5 play, Maroon’s physical presence around the net has been a plus on the power play. The Blues did not work on the power play Thursday, so it’s unclear who takes Maroon’s spot against a San Jose team that is one of the league’s best on the penalty kill. The Sharks finished second in penalty kill rate last season at 84.8 percent; entering Thursday’s game in Dallas they were third on the PK at 86.5 percent.

though Vince Dunn got regular power play duty last year, most of it was on the second unit, not with Tarasenko. “They’re all smart players,” Tarasenko said. “You don’t need to explain twice to those guys what we’re doing. If somebody gets any ideas, we just do it on the ice. ... And just go out and enjoy our time on the power play. It’s really fun for us playing right now.” Earlier in the season, power play time was more evenly split between the first and second units. Lately, the first unit has gotten the lion’s share of time. Including Colton Parayko, who stepped in during the two games Dunn was a healthy scratch, the first unit has 10 goals and 18 assists. O’Reilly has two goals and six assists on the power play, Dunn two goals and two assists, and Maroon six assists. “When I’m looking at the success of that group, what they’re doing, it’s not really complicated,” Yeo said. “We’ve got routes, we’ve got plays, we’ve got different things that we’re gonna try. “Bottom line is you gotta be downhill. You gotta be going downhill and you gotta find a way to get pucks and numbers of people — outnumber ’em at the net. When you do that you have success.” The second unit, meanwhile, has chipped in with six goals and nine assists. It consists of Jaden Schwartz, Brayden Schenn, David Perron, Alexander Steen and Alex Pietrangelo. Perron leads that group with three power-play goals; Schenn has two goals and three assists. Lineup continuity has been a factor in power play productivity, according to Dunn. “I think from the start we’ve kept the units the same, I think that’s definitely helped,” Dunn said. “If you fail one night, you look back and you try to fix it and you

Yeo’s moves on the right path team with some rest might have been the right play. The scrutiny instead should be directed toward whom Yeo plays. It feels strange to write this in November, but Yeo should move forward in a win-now fashion and let the chips fall where they may. No more toggling between what is right for the team right now, and what might be best for it down the line. No more worrying about the feelings that might be blistered by bold decisions. No more reason to do anything other than play the players who give the Blues the best chance to win this game, and then the next one, and so on. If general manager Doug Armstrong doesn’t approve, make him block moves. Rookie center Robert Thomas clearly has a meaningful role on this team. If he sits because the Blues want to delay the kick-in of his pro contract, Armstrong should have to explain why he is holding back the best version of the Blues. If the players don’t like the approach, too bad. They have had more than a month to right the ship. This core let former coach Ken Hitchcock go down, and history says no life boat will be sent from the dressing room for Yeo. The players have the salary cap in their corner, and they have looked far too comfortable as the early winds of firing season send shivers up Yeo’s spine. If the fans don’t like it, who cares? Let’s be clear: Yeo would never say this. But he should know that a significant chunk of those who show up Friday night to see the Blues host the San Jose Sharks spent the past few days salivating over the notion of a Joel Quenneville reunion. The firing of the former Blues and now former Blackhawks coach seemed to move the needle in St. Louis more than Chicago. The threetime Stanley Cup winner hasn’t even confirmed he’s interested in coaching again this season — the Post-Dispatch has asked — and already the ink is dry on the connected dots. Blues fans are being cold and calculated. Their coach — the current one — should not hesitate to do the same. He’s on the right path. Finally, Yeo has moved away from playing struggling defenseman Jay Bouwmeester. The recent mention of Bouwmeester’s hip issue is one of two things, neither of which are good. It’s either a cover-up for a well-liked veteran, or an admittance of coaching malpractice. Yeo can’t afford to let folks think he was playing an injured player, and defending an injured player’s play, just because Bouwmeester could not get the job done. Yeo’s loyalty to Bouwmeester chilled some fans. Hopefully it resonated with his players. Yeo has decided to sit Patrick Maroon against the Sharks on Friday, another tough yet correct call. The local has struggled lately. A shakeup was needed. Asked Thursday how he is toggling between a win-now approach and the long-term view, Yeo offered a diplomatic response. “What we are trying to do is help all of our players,” he said. “Sometimes, pulling them out of the lineup doesn’t mean that we think we are going to be better because he’s not in the lineup. That’s not the case. Sometimes, it’s a reset for that player. Sometimes, it gives them a chance to think about things a little bit differently, to work on their game. Also, sometimes we have different players we have to get into the lineup as well.” Certain moves speak louder than others. A big one looms. A true win-now approach would mean starting goalie Chad Johnson over Jake Allen on Friday. And continuing to do so as long as Johnson starts coincide with wins. Johnson, the backup, stopped 38 of 39 shots in the Blues’ 4-1 win against Carolina on Tuesday. It was just the second time this season — and the first time since Oct. 20 — that the Blues have held an opponent to fewer than three goals. The Blues have only held an opponent to three or fewer goals five times, and Johnson’s only other start was in one of those games. Can the journeyman become the hot hand? Time to find out. But sitting Allen invites implications. He has the big contract and the long history of reliability issues. Moving away from him now would lend credence, at least somewhat, to the argument that Allen’s struggles this season might be more connected to the team’s slow start than the Blues first wanted to acknowledge. Yes, the defense has been alarming, and that’s not completely on Allen. But is it completely on the defense that Allen ranks 42nd among goalies in save percentage (.879) and 44th in goals against average (3.99)? Starting Johnson over Allen raises questions about the future. See the rub? “Every day, we come to the rink, it’s two things,” Yeo said Thursday. “One, we are trying to win that game. And two, we are trying to build our game toward the end of the year, where we want to be. You need a lot of people to get to that point.” Right now, it’s fair to wonder if Yeo will reach that point. Even more reason to prioritize number one.

William Carrier put Vegas ahead for good after Ottawa rallied from a threegoal deficit, and the Golden Knights beat the host Senators 5-3 on Thursday night. Jonathan Marchessault, Shea Theodore, Nick Holden and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare also scored for the Golden Knights. Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves. Matt Duchene, Ryan Dzingel and Thomas Chabot scored for the Senators, who fell behind 3-0 before tying the score. Before the game, the Senators activated rookie forward Brady Tkachuk. He had been out for nine games with a torn ligament in his left leg. Tkachuk, the No. 4 pick of the 2018 NHL draft and son of former Blues star Keith Tkachuk, had been a bright spot for the Senators before his injury. He was held without a point for the first time since his debut.

Paul George scored 20 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the visiting Houston Rockets 98-80 on Thursday night without point guard Russell Westbrook for their seventh straight victory. Westbrook missed his second consecutive game with a sprained left ankle. Steven Adams had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and Terrance Ferguson and Dennis Schroder each added 14 points for Oklahoma City. All five Thunder starters scored in double figures before the end of the third quarter. James Harden scored 19

points, but made just 7 of 19 shots for the Rockets. Houston’s Carmelo Anthony, who played for the Thunder last season, scored two points on 1-for-11 shooting.

NOTEBOOK Cavs rack up injuries • The Cavaliers are losing games and players at an alarming rate. Starting point guard George Hill could miss two weeks with a sprained right shoulder, the latest setback for the Cavs, who are expected to be without AllStar forward Kevin Love for at least another five weeks following foot surgery. Cleveland is also missing forward Sam Dekker, who sprained his ankle.

NHL STANDINGS

William Carrier put Vegas ahead for good after Ottawa rallied from a threegoal deficit, and the Golden Knights beat the host Senators 5-3 on Thursday night. Jonathan Marchessault, Shea Theodore, Nick Holden and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare also scored for the Golden Knights. Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves. Matt Duchene, Ryan Dzingel and Thomas Chabot scored for the Senators, who fell behind 3-0 before tying the score. Before the game, the Senators activated rookie forward Brady Tkachuk. He had been out for nine games with a torn ligament in his left leg. Tkachuk, the No. 4 pick of the 2018 NHL draft and son of former Blues star Keith Tkachuk, had been a bright spot for the Senators before his injury. He was held without a point for the first time since his debut.

Thunder roll past Rockets

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Thunder forward Paul George goes up for a dunk during the first half against the Houston Rockets on Thursday.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Paul George scored 20 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the visiting Houston Rockets 98-80 on Thursday night without point guard Russell Westbrook for their seventh straight victory. Westbrook missed his second consecutive game with a sprained left ankle. Steven Adams had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and Terrance Ferguson and Dennis Schroder each added 14 points for Oklahoma City. All five Thunder starters scored in double figures before the end of the third quarter. James Harden scored 19

points, but made just 7 of 19 shots for the Rockets. Houston’s Carmelo Anthony, who played for the Thunder last season, scored two points on 1-for-11 shooting.

NOTEBOOK Cavs rack up injuries • The Cavaliers are losing games and players at an alarming rate. Starting point guard George Hill could miss two weeks with a sprained right shoulder, the latest setback for the Cavs, who are expected to be without AllStar forward Kevin Love for at least another five weeks following foot surgery. Cleveland is also missing forward Sam Dekker, who sprained his ankle.

FOOTBALL • WEEK 12 PREVIEW

STRONGER THAN EVER Hastings returns from lacerated spleen to lead Fox’s run to first district final since 2009 BY DAVID KVIDAHL STLhighschoolsports.com

ARNOLD • Caden Hastings hits like he never lacerated an internal organ. A senior inside linebacker for the Fox football team, Hastings has no fear. His fingers have been stepped on and broken at football practice. He had pins put in his wrist after the swing of a bat broke his left arm while playing catcher. His right orbital bone was shattered when he and teammate Cole Elwood smashed heads during outfield drills at baseball practice. “He’s been unlucky his whole life,” Elwood said. “The worst stuff happens to him.” The worst nearly did happen to Hastings. It shook his teammates and his coach to their core. Every day he’s on the field and playing like nothing happened is a reminder of how fortunate the Warriors are to have Hastings with them. “If he goes home that night and goes to sleep we might lose him,” Fox coach Brent Tinker said.

Fox’s Caden Hastings carries the ball earlier this season against Summit. Hastings recovered from a lacerated spleen suffered as a junior to help lead Fox to its 10-1 season.

‘IT WAS A BAD YEAR’ The sideline erupted into shouts of “Punt!” Hastings stopped vomiting long enough to pull on his helmet and trot on the field. He’d come off after making what turned out to be a game-saving tackle on fourth down. He knew he’d taken a shot to the abdomen but figured he’d just had the wind knocked out of him. Then a junior, Hastings took his normal spot on the punt team to block the Oakville defenders in a game played Sept. 22, 2017. “I was so out of it,” Hastings said. “I was trying to block the guy with my head.” Hastings remained on the field, ready to assume his normal spot at inside linebacker. The Fox coaching staff took one look at him and called him back. He wasn’t right. “When you spend this much time with these kids you know how the kid walks, how they stand, you know exactly how they’re supposed to look. He looked off. His stance was different. His steps were different,” Tinker said. “You could tell that was a kid trying to be as tough as he could be and not show you he was hurt. But you could tell he was hurt.” Hastings returned to the sideline, where Fox’s trainer and team physician started evaluating him. He remained out for the final moments of the game and immediately afterward was taken to the trainer’s office for further examination. Upon reaching the trainer’s office he started vomiting again. “I just thought I had a bad concussion,” Hastings said. Every test the trainer, Mary Catherine Schmank or “MC” as she is known to the team, gave Hastings showed no signs of a concussion. There was some thought maybe he had bleeding on his brain. Unable to figure out what had Hastings in such a bad way, his mother, Jackie, drove him from Fox to St. John’s Mercy Medical Center. Hastings tried to convince

his mother he just needed to sleep it off. Jackie wasn’t having it. “She almost gave in, but it’s a good thing she didn’t,” Hastings said. Hastings arrived at the hospital expecting to go through more tests on his head. The longer he sat there, though, the more his stomach hurt. He was cramping in a bad way, so bad the hospital staff wanted to check it out. “Instead of CT scanning my head they CT scanned my stomach,” Hastings said. “Got the results back and they said I lacerated my spleen and was bleeding. I had to go immediately into surgery.” The surgery did not remove Hastings’ spleen but tied off the veins to stop the bleeding. Only a third of his spleen still functions. Hastings was admitted to the hospital late that Friday night. He wasn’t discharged until Thursday. He spent much of his time in the hospital resting and recovering. Hastings said he couldn’t watch television, wasn’t all that talkative with his visitors and, most telling, was unable to look at his cell phone. He was in such bad shape it took days for him to be in a place where he could reply to the monsoon of get-well messages that flooded his phone. “I asked my mom for my phone and I immediately put it down,” Hastings said. “It made me sick.” Hastings had no shortage of support. Tinker was at the hospital late that Friday night. His friends and teammates routinely visited. The current seniors on the Fox roster are a tight-knit bunch. Many have played with one another since middle school. Their bond has only grown closer since they became part of the program as freshmen. “Those boys love each other. This is a strong class,” Tinker said. “I know this is a group I’m going to remember. They have a mix of talent and personality.” After he was discharged, Hastings was supposed to take two weeks off of school.

GORDON RADFORD • Special to STLhighschoolsports.com

He made it a week before he asked if he could go back. “I went back to school a week before I was supposed to because it was driving me crazy,” Hastings said. “I had a lot of homework to catch up on. A lot of homework.” The immediate aftereffects of his injury and surgery was a weakened immune system. Hastings had to get injections to help his body battle germs. He said there were two ugly bouts with a viral infection that winter that had him in a bad way. “It would not go away,” Hastings said. He fought off the infection and was back at baseball practice in the spring. About two weeks into the season he and Elwood were in the outfield, shagging fly balls at practice in a drill that is specifically designed for the outfielders to call each other off and avoid running into one another. Elwood called off Hastings. Hastings called off Elwood. They collided and Hastings came out of it with a busted orbital bone and another emergency room visit. “I went to the same hospital,” Hastings said. “It was a bad year.” It was — but it has led to a great one.

BACK IN ACTION Cade Thomas marvels at Caden Hastings. Not all the time, but when Thomas takes a step back and looks at the past year, it’s hard to believe how far his longtime friend has come and how little he’s changed. “It was scary at first to think of him hitting that way again,” Thomas said. “He doesn’t care. He hits the crap out of people. Luckily nothing has bothered him this season.” Thomas visited Hastings nearly every day when he was in the hospital. Their parents are good friends and Jackie called Thomas’s mother early that Saturday morning to say Hastings had emergency surgery. “It was pretty scary,” Thomas said. “He took it like a champ. He’s a tough kid.” Stubborn, too.

Hastings’ parents were on the fence about letting him return to football. His father, Corey, was especially concerned about his son. Eventually he and Jackie gave Hastings the green light, but it was a tough call. After missing nearly half of his junior football season, Hastings would have pulled his spleen out with his bare hands if it meant one last season with his friends. “My mentality the whole time was it’s senior year, it’s the last time I’ll get to play football again,” Hastings said. “There was no doubt in my mind I wanted to play.” And he’s been remarkable. The 5-foot10 and 195-pound Hastings leads the Warriors with 77 tackles. He’s a fullback in Fox’s power rushing attack. He joins the offensive line in clearing the way for a trio of standout ball carriers. Senior quarterback Gavin McGinness has rushed for 1,139 yards and 18 touchdowns. Senior running back Bob Neibert has 1,098 rushing yards, 11 touchdowns and now holds the school record for most career rushing yards. Elwood has run for 915 yards and 10 scores in his first season at running back. “He’s a good football player, he really is,” Tinker said. “He’s probably the best blocking running back we have on the team. He’s the heart and the core of our defense right now.” Tinker said he initially had concerns about Hastings return. The experience made a profound impact on Tinker. But any worries disappeared when Hastings stepped on the field like nothing happened. “He’s a throwback. He’s a two-sport athlete and he wants to go play,” Tinker said. “We offered him extra (pads and padded shirts) because I think we were more nervous than he was. We didn’t know how he’d be, if he’d be tentative or not. But he came right back and started playing.” How many games Hastings and the Warriors have left is up to them. Fox (9-1) travels to Jackson (10-0) for the Class 5 District 1 championship game at 7 p.m. Friday. It’s the first district championship game for the Warriors since 2009, when the advanced to the Class 6 semifinals. “Going down to Jackson will be a good time. It’ll show us what we really are,” Hastings said. “We’ve been preparing for them for weeks. We’re ready for them. We’re not scared of them. I think it’ll be a good game.” Fox is walking into the lion’s den. Jackson’s home field is called “The Pit” for a reason. The fans are loud, boisterous and all in on their Indians. The Warriors will be tested mentally and physically for four quarters. No matter what adversity the Warriors face, they won’t have to look far to see someone who has overcome more. Someone who is just happy to be on the field, laying the lumber and playing with his teammates. “They’re not going to quit. They’re not going to back down from anybody,” Tinker said. “Once you’ve gone through what Caden’s gone through, what can scare you?”

Carr drives Lutheran North to first semifinal BY JIM FAASEN STLhighschoolsports.com

Lutheran North senior Greg Carr hails from a creative and artistic family and has a natural affinity for the stage. At 2 p.m. Friday, he’ll get the chance to display his skills in another form of performance art as the goalkeeper for the Crusaders boys soccer team in their first state semifinal appearance. The Crusaders (10-15) face Barstow (11-8) in a Class 1 semifinal at Soccer Park. “I like putting on shows for people and telling a story,” Carr said. “It’s kind of a family thing. My dad is a playwright, my mom is a stage manager and my sister is a dancer and I’m an actor. My family inspires me every day and I wouldn’t be where I am without them.

“It’s a huge bridge (from acting to athletics). When I put on the jersey and the gloves and I step on the field, I’m not just Greg Carr, I’m Greg Carr, the best goalkeeper in the world.” Carr has played that role superbly during Lutheran North’s postseason run. He has allowed just two goals in the last 230 minutes to help the Crusaders move into uncharted territory. “Overall, I think Greg is one of the top goalies around, very athletic,” Lutheran North coach Jamie Frisella said. “He brings a lot of spirit to the game. His athleticism is going to be hard-pressed to be matched.” Carr’s statistics show an 8-13 record with a 2.86 goals against average. Many of those games have been against solid competition, including fel-

low Class 1 semifinal qualifier Principia and Class 2 semifinalist John Burroughs along with Class 3 district champion Priory. Also, Carr said he and his teammates are far different players than from their first game Aug. 25. “We had doubts at first,”

Carr said. “We overcame those doubts and that’s why we’re here now. For me, this feels great. At the start of the season, believe it or not, I was a super shy guy. I didn’t like talking a lot. Now, I know I have to be very verbal and I feel good about that (transfor-

mation).” The Crusaders qualified for the semifinal appearance with a 2-1 victory at Cole Camp behind two goals by Wayea Halloweger. Carr said he’s amazed by how far things have come for him since his freshman season. “I feel very humbled because (as a freshman) I wasn’t a significant part of the varsity team,” Carr said. “Now, to be here and to be so close, it feels amazing.” Frisella said the perhaps the greatest thing about Carr after his athletic ability, is his humility. Carr’s also provided key leadership and has allowed just two goals in the team’s last three games. “He’s vocal and he adds an extra set of eyes from behind,” Frisella said. “The boys respond to him very well and he’s always fo-

cused on what he has to do. He protects the net. He’s come up big in several games this year. He’s made some huge saves.” Lutheran North’s opponent in Barstow (11-8) is a team in its first semifinal appearance since winning the Class 1 title in 2014. Frisella said the Crusaders have to look inward for their answers in hopes of a winning weekend. The winner advances to play either Principia or Fair Oaks in the Class 1 final at 4 p.m. Saturday. “Our goal is to keep our intensity as high as possible and get all 23 kids on the same page,” Frisella said. “We’ve been healthy and we’re going to work hard and really get after it. It’s a good thing we’ll be back home with the boys. The energy level, being this far in the history of the school, will be a huge plus for us.”

SLUH in position for run at team crown; Shelfaut pulls out a dramatic diving title

MISSOURI BOYS SOCCER

BY GREG UPTAIN STLhighschoolsports.com

ST. PETERS • Lindsey Ehret still

has flashbacks to the final race of last year’s Missouri Class 2 Boys Swimming and Diving Championships. “Oh my God, all the time,” the St. Louis University High coach said. The Junior Billikens went into that 400-yard freestyle relay tied with Rock Bridge. The Bruins won the event and SLUH took second to render the final team standings in that same order, with the Jr. Bills just six points behind. “And we’re all worried that that’s going to happen again,” Ehret said. “It’s well-stacked up right in a row, so they’re thinking it’s going to come down to Liberty, CBC and us.” SLUH positioned itself well after the first day of this year’s state meet with eight top-eight qualifications from Thursday afternoon’s preliminaries at St. Peters Rec-Plex. “We had some good swims,” Ehret said. “We’ve got some youngsters and some first-timers, so I think that played a role in some of our sprint events. But, overall I’m pretty happy.” Senior Joseph Feder had a pair of top-five showings in the 100 free and 200 free. Freshman Cooper Scharff also stepped up with matching thirdplace qualifications in the 200 individual medley and the 100 backstroke. “We lost a lot from last year, so having him step in and be a top-three kid as a freshman is really good,” Ehret said. “He’s got a good competitive edge and he’s a really talented swimmer.” SLUH qualified second in both the 200 and 400 free relays and fourth in the 200 medley relay. Ehret is happy with the way her relay teams performed and she knows their success is key to winning a state title. The individual events at the prelims were almost all led by either Kansas City or Columbia swimmers, so the chances for a SLUH swimmer to win an individual title Friday may not be high. But, Ehret is counting on her entire roster to compile as many points as it can to help the greater cause. “You have to have the depth,” she said. “Hopefully, we’ll win something. If we don’t win something,

hopefully we’re second in everything, as we were last year. We’re looking for as many second places as we can accumulate. We’re looking for some people to move up.” The one area swimmer to qualify first in an individual preliminary event was Holt senior Noah Scheuermann, who had the top time in the 200 free. “I was just trying to stick to my race plan and not overswim the first time through and kind of back-half it to build to the last 100 more,” said Scheuermann, an Arizona State recruit. “It paid off in the end. I’m excited to see what I can do (Friday).” Scheuermann also qualified second in the 100 butterfly. Neither event he raced in Thursday were the ones he won medals in at last year’s state meet, as he was third in the 500 free and sixth in the 200 IM as a junior. Lindbergh senior Tyler Lewis also had a strong showing by qualifying second in both the 200 IM and backstroke. “I brought (the 200 IM) home the way I wanted to, but I wish I would have gone out faster in the first 100,” said Lewis, a Missouri State recruit. “I was pretty happy with my splits (in the backstroke). I’ve got to work on my start, though, because that was my rough point. Everybody got ahead and I had to catch them.” The Class 2 championship heats, along with the consolation races, will be contested at 10 a.m. Friday at the

Rec-Plex.

HOWELL NORTH FRESHMAN SHELFAUT WINS DIVING TITLE Francis Howell North freshman Logan Shelfaut saved his best for last, nailing his final two dives to compile big scores and overtake defending champion Alex Burt of Blue Springs South to win the Class 2 one-meter diving competition Thursday night at the Rec-Plex. “It’s pretty cool, although I was pretty confident going in,” Shelfaut said. “I was happy with my last three dives. I really wanted to hit those.” Shelfaut compiled a total of 503.55 points to set a Class 2 record and get past Burt, who had 488.30 points, which was actually 23 points better than the Ole Miss recruit’s total when he won the state title as a junior. The end-of-round lead changed hands seven different times during the 11-dive meet, as Shelfaut held the lead after rounds 3, 5, 7, 10 and 11. His last two dives totaled 116.35 points, including a 57.60 on his final dive to put it out of reach for Burt, who had led after the ninth round. “My coach put my best dive last because I always usually hit that and I can always trust it to bring me up,” Shelfaut said. Shelfaut is the second state champion diver from Francis Howell North, joining Peter Lucido, who won it as a senior in 2016. Shelfaut also broke Lucido’s Gateway Athletic Conference record just 12 days ago.

Kuchar shares lead in Mexico He misses only two fairways during ‘a bit of a working vacation’ ASSOCIATED PRESS

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, MEXICO • Matt Kuchar decided at the last minute to play the Mayakoba Golf Classic and made it look like a smart move Thursday. Kuchar missed only two fairways at El Camaleon Golf Club, key to good scoring, and kept bogeys off his card for a 7-under 64 that gave him a share of the lead with Dominic Bozzelli and PGA Tour rookie Kramer Hickok. Kuchar has gone more than four years since his last PGA Tour victory. His 64 was his lowest opening round on tour since a 64 in the 2017 Phoenix Open. “It’s an amazing resort, Mayakoba. So to be able to bring the family to enjoy some vacation time, it’s a bit of a working vacation,” Kuchar said. “I had a good time at the office, as well.” Most players did, with more than half of the 132-man field in the 60s. Jordan Spieth was not among them. Playing his second straight week in the fall — and his last tournament before his wedding — Spieth traded birdies and bogeys and had to settle for an even-par 71, leaving him in need to a good round Friday just to stick around for the weekend. One of his former roommates had no such issues. Hickok also played college golf at Texas and lived with Spieth in Dallas until a few months ago, when all the roommates had to find other arrangements as Spieth prepares for his marriage to Annie Verret. Spieth had his first PGA Tour victory seven months after leaving college early. Hickok toiled on the Mackenzie Tour in Canada, then the Web.com Tour before finally making it to the big leagues. But he says he learns plenty by playing with Spieth at home. “I’m reaching out when I’m home and trying to pick his brain a little bit here and there, but really just watching him play,

Matt Kuchar missed only two fairways at El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, Thursday, shooting a 7-under 64 that gave him a share of the lead with Dominic Bozzelli and Kramer Hickok.

what he does at practice,” Hickok said. Among those in the large group at 65 was Abraham Ancer, whose tie for fourth last week in Las Vegas moved him to No. 98 in the world. That made Ancer the first Mexican golfer to crack the top 100 in the world ranking, and he carried that to his native soil and kept moving in the right direction. Also at 65 were Bud Cauley as he returns from a car accident at the Memorial in early June, and defending champion Patton Kizzire, who made back-to-back eagles on the par-5 fifth hole and by holing out on the par-4 sixth. Rickie Fowler was among those at 66. Kuchar has slipped to No. 40 in the world, failed to reach the third round of the FedEx Cup playoffs for the first time in a decade and did not play in the Ryder Cup for the first time in 10 years. He still keeps upbeat on and off the golf course, and decided while in Las Vegas (a tie for 57th) to play Mayakoba. His caddie already had other plans, so

Kuchar hired a local caddie from El Camaleon. His wife, Sybi, also got in on the act. Kuchar was playing with Zach Johnson, whose caddie (Damon Green) became ill from the heat with four holes to play. Kuchar’s wife was following along in the gallery and carried Johnson’s bag the rest of the way. “I knew she had caddied for me before and was friendly with Zach Johnson, and figured she would be good to handle it, and Zach would go easy on her,” Kuchar said. Kuchar and Johnson live at Sea Island on the Georgia coast. Spieth was 2 under through eight holes until he dropped three shots over the next eight holes. Going back to an old driver didn’t help as he hit only six fairways, making it tough to score for anyone out of the rough. “If you’re not driving it well, this course is extremely hard,” Kuchar said. “If you’re driving it well, you can make some birdies, which I was able to do today.”

GOLF ROUNDUP Goydos, Petrovic share lead at Champions’ finale Paul Goydos and Tim Petrovic shot 8-under 63 on Thursday to share the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Phoenix, leaving points leader Bernhard Langer seven strokes back in the PGA Tour Champions’ season finale. In 80-degree conditions at Phoenix Country Club, Langer parred the final nine holes for a 70. The 61-year-old German opened with a chip-in eagle on the par-5 first, but had two front-nine bogeys. Scott Parel, No. 2 in the standings after winning at Sherwood, made a double bogey on 18 for a 71. Langer and Parel would take the Cup with a victory, while Miguel Angel Jimenez, Jerry Kelly, Scott McCarron and David Toms would need a win and help from other players. Garcia dominates at Nedbank • Sergio Garcia flew into a four-shot lead at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa, after an 8-under 64 secured the biggest first-round advantage on the European Tour for a year. Garcia, twice a Sun City winner before Nedbank became part of the tour, made eight birdies in a brilliant start to move four strokes clear of Charl Schwartzel, Mike Lorenzo-Vera and Mikko Korhonen. Rory McIlroy, one of five players with a chance of being crowned European No. 1 at the end of the season, shot a level-par 72 after a double-bogey six on his secondto-last hole spoiled his round. Jutanugarn leads Blue Bay • Top-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn shot a 4-under 68 to take a four-stroke lead at the halfway point of the Blue Bay LPGA tournament in Hainan Island, China. Jutanugarn had birdies on the final two holes — and four of the closing seven — to take command over the field at 7-under 137. Jennifer Song, Moriya Jutanugarn, and Gaby Lopez shot 71s and were in a tie for second at 3-under. Associated Press

Kuchar shares lead in Mexico He misses only two fairways during ‘a bit of a working vacation’ ASSOCIATED PRESS

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, MEXICO • Matt Kuchar decided at the last minute to play the Mayakoba Golf Classic and made it look like a smart move Thursday. Kuchar missed only two fairways at El Camaleon Golf Club, key to good scoring, and kept bogeys off his card for a 7-under 64 that gave him a share of the lead with Dominic Bozzelli and PGA Tour rookie Kramer Hickok. Kuchar has gone more than four years since his last PGA Tour victory. His 64 was his lowest opening round on tour since a 64 in the 2017 Phoenix Open. “It’s an amazing resort, Mayakoba. So to be able to bring the family to enjoy some vacation time, it’s a bit of a working vacation,” Kuchar said. “I had a good time at the office, as well.” Most players did, with more than half of the 132-man field in the 60s. Jordan Spieth was not among them. Playing his second straight week in the fall — and his last tournament before his wedding — Spieth traded birdies and bogeys and had to settle for an even-par 71, leaving him in need to a good round Friday just to stick around for the weekend. One of his former roommates had no such issues. Hickok also played college golf at Texas and lived with Spieth in Dallas until a few months ago, when all the roommates had to find other arrangements as Spieth prepares for his marriage to Annie Verret. Spieth had his first PGA Tour victory seven months after leaving college early. Hickok toiled on the Mackenzie Tour in Canada, then the Web.com Tour before finally making it to the big leagues. But he says he learns plenty by playing with Spieth at home. “I’m reaching out when I’m home and trying to pick his brain a little bit here and there, but really just watching him play,

Matt Kuchar missed only two fairways at El Camaleon Golf Club in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, Thursday, shooting a 7-under 64 that gave him a share of the lead with Dominic Bozzelli and Kramer Hickok.

what he does at practice,” Hickok said. Among those in the large group at 65 was Abraham Ancer, whose tie for fourth last week in Las Vegas moved him to No. 98 in the world. That made Ancer the first Mexican golfer to crack the top 100 in the world ranking, and he carried that to his native soil and kept moving in the right direction. Also at 65 were Bud Cauley as he returns from a car accident at the Memorial in early June, and defending champion Patton Kizzire, who made back-to-back eagles on the par-5 fifth hole and by holing out on the par-4 sixth. Rickie Fowler was among those at 66. Kuchar has slipped to No. 40 in the world, failed to reach the third round of the FedEx Cup playoffs for the first time in a decade and did not play in the Ryder Cup for the first time in 10 years. He still keeps upbeat on and off the golf course, and decided while in Las Vegas (a tie for 57th) to play Mayakoba. His caddie already had other plans, so

Kuchar hired a local caddie from El Camaleon. His wife, Sybi, also got in on the act. Kuchar was playing with Zach Johnson, whose caddie (Damon Green) became ill from the heat with four holes to play. Kuchar’s wife was following along in the gallery and carried Johnson’s bag the rest of the way. “I knew she had caddied for me before and was friendly with Zach Johnson, and figured she would be good to handle it, and Zach would go easy on her,” Kuchar said. Kuchar and Johnson live at Sea Island on the Georgia coast. Spieth was 2 under through eight holes until he dropped three shots over the next eight holes. Going back to an old driver didn’t help as he hit only six fairways, making it tough to score for anyone out of the rough. “If you’re not driving it well, this course is extremely hard,” Kuchar said. “If you’re driving it well, you can make some birdies, which I was able to do today.”

GOLF ROUNDUP Goydos, Petrovic share lead at Champions’ finale Paul Goydos and Tim Petrovic shot 8-under 63 on Thursday to share the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Phoenix, leaving points leader Bernhard Langer seven strokes back in the PGA Tour Champions’ season finale. In 80-degree conditions at Phoenix Country Club, Langer parred the final nine holes for a 70. The 61-year-old German opened with a chip-in eagle on the par-5 first, but had two front-nine bogeys. Scott Parel, No. 2 in the standings after winning at Sherwood, made a double bogey on 18 for a 71. Langer and Parel would take the Cup with a victory, while Miguel Angel Jimenez, Jerry Kelly, Scott McCarron and David Toms would need a win and help from other players. Garcia dominates at Nedbank • Sergio Garcia flew into a four-shot lead at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa, after an 8-under 64 secured the biggest first-round advantage on the European Tour for a year. Garcia, twice a Sun City winner before Nedbank became part of the tour, made eight birdies in a brilliant start to move four strokes clear of Charl Schwartzel, Mike Lorenzo-Vera and Mikko Korhonen. Rory McIlroy, one of five players with a chance of being crowned European No. 1 at the end of the season, shot a level-par 72 after a double-bogey six on his secondto-last hole spoiled his round. Jutanugarn leads Blue Bay • Top-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn shot a 4-under 68 to take a four-stroke lead at the halfway point of the Blue Bay LPGA tournament in Hainan Island, China. Jutanugarn had birdies on the final two holes — and four of the closing seven — to take command over the field at 7-under 137. Jennifer Song, Moriya Jutanugarn, and Gaby Lopez shot 71s and were in a tie for second at 3-under. Associated Press

onsort Homes’ new The Villages at Brightleaf community is being developed in the Town Center section of St. Louis’ affluent Wildwood suburb. Brightleaf’s executive homes are being constructed in a community that has become a magnet for active family buyers – from its biking and running trails to its access to the boundless shopping and activities at Town Center. The community is also prized for being in a highly sought after school district. According to a recent study by CoreLogic, November home sales increased by seven percent, with home prices anticipated to soar in 2018 due to the low real estate inventory available to ready buyers. Director of Sales Erin Oliver conirmed that sales contracts are already robust for phases one and two of the Brightleaf homes, and she is anticipating this demand to continue throughout all phases of the development.

Plantation shutters are one of the few treatments that allow the bottom to close for privacy and the top open for light. Vinyl and composite shutters are maintenance free and eco-friendly. They come in 2 1/2”, 3 1/2”, and 4 1/2” louver sizes. They can also be made for specialty windows such as arches, angles,French doors, and sliders.

HONEYCOMB SHADES Honeycomb shades offer a soft, light look to your window and give you excellent insulation and privacy at the same time. There are many configurations to honeycomb shades: standard raised from the bottom or a top down/bottom up gives the choice of stacking the shade at the bottom or the top or anywhere in between. These are great for bathrooms and bedrooms where many would like privacy at the bottom and openness at the top. Cordless shades are a great option to keep the cords away from the children, and motorized are great for the hard to reach windows.

Garages could become extinct Sponsored Content by National Association of REALTORS® Graphic provided by Eric Audras – ONOKY and National Association of REALTORS®

T

he technology to power driverless vehicles is here, and greater tests of autonomous vehicles are already hitting the roadways. As autonomous vehicles are spread around and the popularity of car-share programs rise, housing analysts are calling on the death of the garage in residential homes. Babcock Ranch, located north of Fort Myers, Fla., is a sustainable, tech-enabled master-planned community development that is already showing off driverless cars in pilot programs. Students living in the community can catch a ride to their elementary school on an autonomous shuttle. Autonomous vehicles are “going to transform the way we think about the design of communities of the future,” said Syd Kitson, a developer with Babcock Ranch. “When you think about how we’re one day going to be able to eliminate parking garages, parking areas, and garages in homes, you need to think through how all of that works together.”

Two-car garages dominate homes today. In 2017, 65 percent of new, single-family homes completed had a two-car garage, and another 20 percent of homes had a garage large enough for three or more cars, according to data from the National Association of Home Builders. Only six percent of newly built homes had a one-car garage. By 2030, housing analysts predict the garage may become less of a fixture on residential properties.

Some builders are already testing that idea— for example, national builder KB Homes has partnered with Hanley Wood’s BUILDER Magazine on the KB Home ProjeKt®, which forecasts a post-garage future. The three-car garage — which was once a sign of homeowner wealth — could soon become a rarity. Instead, KB Homes predicts the need would be replaced by on-demand travel apps such as Uber, Lyft, and other ride-sharing options. KB Homes also predicts in its ProjeKt® that by subtracting garages from each property that it would allow for a 31 percent increase in home sites. Builders also say the removal of garages could add more open spaces to communities, and could even help bring down the costs of homes. A two-car garage can add $25,000 to $30,000 to the cost of a new home. This article provided through a partnership between The St. Louis Post-Dispatch and St. Louis REALTORS®.

t had been nearly a decade since Jill Sobule released a solo project (“California Years” in 2009). But the “I Kissed a Girl” singer (pre-Katy Perry) is back with a new album, “Nostalgia Kills,” featuring Wayne Kramer (of the MC5), John Doe (X), Petra Haden (That Dog), Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Jellyfish) and Richard Barone (the Bongos). “I’m so proud of this record,” Sobule says. “There was no thought about what I needed to do, about commercial success, what’s trendy. For better or worse, I’m not the best business person. But it’s a record that’s from my heart. And I can at least hope there’s people who can relate to my story and get something out of it.” Sobule’s tour comes to the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill this weekend, and she’s working on an original theater production about the seventh grade, a time in her life she’d rather forget.

kjohnson@post-dispatch.com

stltoday.com/go

@kevincjohnson

A • The album is really a collection of stories. I usually write political and topical songs, but it’s interesting these songs are about memories, about the past, and it’s also a warning that we need to keep moving on and growing and learning. It was produced by a friend of mine (Australian singer Ben Lee), and he picked more introspective storytelling. The songs are more introspective than usual. Q • What led to the introspective turn? A • I had a really hard couple of years. I lost both parents. I’m an orphan now. A relationship I had for 12 years ended. What saved me, kept me sane, helped me through this was this record, was the same thing it was when I was that seventh-grader. The music is what saved me. Q • What was it like working with Ben Lee? A • It was having someone to help me with the tone of the record, collecting the songs and recording it. Working with him was a very organic process, and I had a lot of friends come in. It was very homegrown. Q • What was the process like of narrowing down the songs from 100 to the 15 that made the album? A • I gave the songs to someone else (Lee). It could have been a completely different album. It could have been

A • It was a different era. When I did it, it was banned on a bunch of stations. It was the first on pop radio that had a gay kiss. I didn’t want it to be cute and funny; I wanted a queer song that was empowering. But I knew I had to crouch in a goofy little story. So I became the “Kissed a Girl” girl. It’s one of the best things I ever did. To this day I get emails thanking me for that song. But at the same time a lot of people didn’t get what I was trying to do. They thought it was a goofy novelty song. Then Katy came out. I said, “Hey, wait a minute — I’m the ‘Kissed a Girl’ girl.” Hers was huge, and more power to her for that song.

Bonamassa is seeking ‘Redemption’ for himself — and for Toto Guitarist’s latest album is his 21st to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s blues chart BY DANIEL DURCHHOLZ | SPECIAL TO THE POST-DISPATCH

hen Joe Bonamassa calls in for a scheduled interview, he’s in a bit of a lather. The charttopping blues-rock guitarist had just finished reading a Rolling Stone article calling Toto’s revivified pop hit “Africa” our “unofficial anthem” but also tagging it a “mega-cheese classic of ’80s sentiment” and “ridiculous.”

W

“They never give credit where credit is due,” Bonamassa says of Rolling Stone — and maybe of rock critics in general. “So they’ve always got to post something like, how ‘Africa’ is done by a bunch of rock dudes and how it’s a cheesy song. “But those rock dudes play on more hit records than most people have listened to, let alone played on,” he continues. “And they still sell out arenas and have millions of fans. So what’s the big (expletive) problem?” As it turns out, Bonamassa, too, knows a little bit about bypassing the music world’s self-proclaimed intelligentsia — and indeed the industry’s machinery itself — and going straight to his fans. He’s been dinged by critical brickbats for one reason or another for years, but his sales figures and concert receipts tell a different story. He performs Saturday at the Stifel Theatre. “Every time I read something bad about myself, I just go, ‘Well, somebody must like this (stuff)!’” he says. And they do. Bonamassa’s new album, “Redemption,” is his 21st release to reach No. 1 on Billboard magazine’s blues chart. “I think it’s one of the better records we’ve done in a while,” he says. “And when you’ve done so many records in 20 years like I have, you’re going to have ebbs and flows and go through peaks and valleys. I think we’ve hit

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 11.09.18-11.15.18

a bit of a peak in some of these songs. I think ‘Self-Inflicted Wound’ is one of my favorite songs that I’ve written in a long time.” That song and others, including “Pick Up the Pieces,” “Stronger Now in Broken Places” and the title track, form a loose theme that runs throughout the record. Bonamassa won’t get into specifics regarding what the songs are about or what inspired them. “I didn’t realize it when I was making the record that everything was kind of coming up from the bottom,” he says. “I needed a break. I needed a change. I needed to quit things. I needed to adjust priorities of life. So, you know, it was kind of all of the above.” On a considerably lighter note, Bonamassa claims to have been ignorant of the similarity of the album’s title with the latest edition of the hit video game “Red Dead Redemption.” “Everybody’s like, ‘Does this have something to do with the video game?’” he says. “I go, ‘What are you talking about?’ But I’ll gladly glom onto their success.” It’s been a busy year for Bonamassa in terms of new releases. Prior to “Redemption, there was “Black Coffee,” his fourth collaboration with blues belter Beth Hart, followed by “British Blues Explosion Live,” a tribute of sorts to his primary guitar heroes — Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

One of the reasons Bonamassa can turn out albums at such a furious pace is that he and his longtime manager own their record label, J&R Adventures. They’re basically a selfcontained unit, also handling his concert promotion and marketing efforts. What made him decide to strike out on his own on all fronts like that? “You get some anonymity and you get autonomy,” Bonamassa says. “Being a niche kind of artist, you’re not going to make a lot of friends in the traditional music biz. You know, the business giveth, and the business says, ‘Go (expletive) yourself.’” So there you go. After Bonamassa’s current tour, he may return to another of his collaborative efforts: Black Country Communion, his band with Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian, which sprang back to life last year after what looked like a permanent split. “We’re always talking about doing something,” Bonamassa says. “We’re going to try to shoot for something next year. If that works out, that would be great. I just saw Glenn, and we’re going to try to get back together, maybe do some road shows, and I think it’d be a lot of fun.” WHAT Joe Bonamassa • WHEN 8 p.m. Saturday • WHERE Stifel Theatre, 1400 Market Street • HOW MUCH $79-$179 • MORE INFO 1-800-745-3000; ticketmaster.com

Ryan Trey’s new album getsbig-league attention The rising St. Louis star has had a big year, and he’s not even signed to a label yet

PHOTO: HANDOUT

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

Rising St. Louis artist Ryan Trey is living the dream, and LeBron James and Bryson Tiller are part of it. In August, 19-yearold Trey released his debut album, titled “August,” featuring “Mutual Butterflies” and “Temptations.” He also was interviewed by Billboard, opened for SZA, and has been publicly praised by modern basketball great James and trap soul singer Tiller. Trey isn’t even signed to a label yet. “These are some of the things I’ve always thought about — meeting some of my favorite artists and getting compliments from the kjohnson@post-dispatch.com

stltoday.com/go

people I look up to, and putting out my own music,” he says. “Some of this was a surprise. Some of it I worked for.” Already, at this early point in his career, Trey is paying attention to lessons learned. “This has taught me a lot about patience, when it comes to wanting things to happen,” he says. “Everything has to be planned. It’s about exposure and getting my name out there. The music will take you as far as you want to go. You don’t have to do too much if the music is there.” Trey began laying down “August” in 2017 while balancing basketball and his studies at Christian Brothers College High School. (He graduated last year from O’Fallon Township High School, and before that also attended high school in Prince George’s County, Md., where he grew up.) “I would have practice, have my games, and any free time I had, I would record,” says Trey, who worked on the album with producer/engineer Cory Rose and his best friend, Alex Orr. “I would wake up at 1 a.m., go to the studio, come back home and sleep, then go to school. And I would find time on the weekends. And I never mentioned ‘August’ to anyone.” He pushed out the album himself, running around school making sure everyone knew about it. “Everybody knew I wanted to get into music but didn’t really see it until the project dropped,” he says. On the album, Trey writes about his experiences with family, women and personal

problems, which he hopes will resonate with fans. “I don’t feel I’ve been through anything everybody else hasn’t been through,” he says. “But anybody who’s going through relationships can take pieces from this.” One of the songs striking the biggest chords with fans is “Letter to You,” about a suicidal friend. “Sometimes, me trying to heal her made me go through a depression because I couldn’t. I had friends in the same situation who feel guilty or responsible.” His favorite song is “Mutual Butterflies,” which addresses the nervous feelings when getting to know a romantic interest. The project eventually made its way to Tiller’s camp, and a connection was made. “I first started listening to his music in junior year in high school, and I remember going to his concerts,” Trey says. “The thing I picked up from Bryson is about being more open — not being afraid to talk about certain things. He’s one of the first guys in recent years to talk about how he was the bad guy in the relationship — the one messing up. “The co-sign was really cool, for him to appreciate my music like that. Usually from what I see, co-signs come from years and years of work. I’ve almost been doing this for two years.” Trey is often compared to Tiller and lumped into the trap soul category. The similarities are unmistakable. “Everybody’s gonna compare you to somebody,” says Trey, who names Frank Ocean, J. Cole, Jay Z and Lauryn Hill as influences. “That’s human nature. I never take it to heart. It’s a compliment to me. The whole trap soul is something I’ve taken pieces of. I wouldn’t be here without it.” The biggest shout-out for him came from James, who on Instagram said Trey’s music is a “nice wave.” “They woke me out of my sleep and told me; I checked my Instagram and saw it,” Trey says. “That was the highlight of any co-sign. I’ve played basketball all my life, and that’s my Michael Jordan. When I saw it, I said, ‘Wow, this is crazy.’ I ran around the house jumping up and down.” Trey plans to tour next year, but no specifics are available yet. St. Louis got a glimpse of him last December at the Ready Room when he opened a SZA show that also included Smino. “That was a cool thing, my first show where I had actual songs,” he says. “I was nervous. It was my most nerve-wracking day. After I finished, I wanted to do it again. I realized there were things I could have done better.” He’s also looking forward to eventually signing with a label. “Labels are reaching out. I’m taking it day by day.”

Running, brats, comedy join forces to combat PTSD Climb for PTSD’s Hero Run kicks off Braktoberfest, a two-day festival featuring Marc Price of ‘Family Ties’ BY JON LEWIS | ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

Fairview Heights-based nonprofit Climb for PTSD, began as a simple charity fun run supporting veterans and first responders. This year it expands to a full-blown weekend of festivities, which will include more than 20 vendors and carnival rides at the bratwurst festival and will culminate with a show featuring longtime comedy writer Bernadette Luckett, Iraq War veteranturned-comedian Joe Kashnow and Marc Price of the beloved 1980s sitcom “Family Ties.” Price — best known for playing Skippy, friend to Michael J. Fox’s character, Alex P. Keaton — has spent much of his recent

career performing comedy for charity. He performed at a Climb for PTSD fundraiser in 2015 at the now-defunct Hey Guys Comedy Club in Fairview Heights. Price remained in contact with Climb for PTSD executive director Linas Grybinas and was eager to help out when plans began forming to expand the group’s charity run into a weekend-long event. “We had a really good time that night, it was a great show and when he said he wanted to add entertainment to this event, which he’s been doing for so many years, I offered to help out, and we looked at possible other acts,” Price says. That research led Price to “Comedy Warriors,” a documentary in which six wounded veterans participate in an intensive stand-up workshop with the likes of Lewis Black and Bob Saget. The event organizers decided to incorporate a screening of the film, and Price contacted Army veteran Joe Kashnow, one of the stars who went on to become a comic, to perform. “I got called by Marc Price, and he said,

‘We have this gig; do you want to be part of it?’ And I said, ‘You want to pay me to tell jokes to people onstage? I’m in,’” Kashnow says with a laugh. Beyond simply being another stand-up gig, however, Kashnow says he is excited that the show will also contribute to a cause. “This is a show where we’re going out and we’re actually doing something,” he says. “We’re raising money for a program, which is one of my more favorite types of ways to do comedy — when it’s more than just going out and being entertained.” The cause is also personal for Kashnow, who lost a leg in Iraq in 2003 and still deals with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. “PTSD is something I struggled with and from a certain point of view still struggle with,” he says. “Because in a way … PTSD is very similar to alcoholism and diabetes in that it’s something you just have and you have to stay on top of.” As for Price, the personal connection is through his father, Al Bernie, who was a fixture on the New York stand-up circuit. “My dad was over with Mickey Rooney during World War II and performed for the troops in some very dangerous places and was very brave and really did his part with that,” he says. “I’ve always wanted to do the same.” Most of all, Price says, he is excited to headline an event he hopes will both entertain and serve some good. “It’s all about the fun and the funny and the laughter and the love, and the money that comes from the tickets goes to the good cause,” he says. “So it’s a win-win.”

lthough the word “iconic” is overused, it certainly fits those red-and-white cans on display at the St. Louis Art Museum. Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup images electrified the art world in the 1960s and remain as recognizable as the product itself. When Americans see a tomato soup label on a wall, they think Warhol, not “add water.” The museum’s screenprint set of 10 joins more than 100 pieces of artwork for its new exhibit, “Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now.” Almost anyone from Depression baby to postwar boomer to jaded millennial will recognize something in this seven-gallery event showing how American artists used (and use) modern technology in their creations. Sure, historic methods like woodcuts and etching were still around — but sometimes the artist used a tattoo gun to cut the etching plate. Inspiration came from everyday products, such as soup cans, comics, news photos, typography, even computer code and video games. And everyday items are incorporated into some artwork, such as Nick Cave’s use of thrift store oxford shirts, which he sewed

together, coated in acrylic and ink, and mounted as part of a triptych. Major artists on display include Louise Bourgeois, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Glenn Ligon, Claes Oldenburg, Julie Mehretu and Robert Rauschenberg. “Some of these things haven’t been seen on view for quite some time,” says Gretchen L. Wagner, the museum’s Andrew W. Mellon fellow for prints, drawings and photographs. Because prints are light sensitive, they are more often in storage than on display. The museum tries to expose them to gallery lights for only about six months per 10 years. (Although the prints, drawings and photographs in storage can be viewed by appointment.)

Wagner is co-curator of the exhibit with Elizabeth Wyckoff, the museum’s curator of prints, drawings and photographs. Both emphasize the diversity of artworks and artists. “The museum collected really well early on, but we also want to make sure the museum continues to collect art of the moment,” Wyckoff says. “There are a number of things that are very recent work.” They had a lot of possibilities from the museum’s collection and borrowed some items from local collectors. “That was one of the hardest parts of putting the exhibit together,” Wagner says. “The museum collected a lot of series by

the pop and minimal artists in the late 1960s and ’70s. They collected that very early on.” Artists at the time were interested in making art in multiples and would collaborate, in effect, with printers using presses, lithographs, etchings and screenprint. In the case of Claes Oldenburg and Jasper Johns, Wagner says, they even worked with the plastics industry of Southern California to make more sculptural pieces. For museum-goers who respond to modern

art thinking “I could do that,” learning about a print’s process and background adds to understanding. Several prints that look like simple blocks of colored squares are actually taken from works by Duchamp, Monet, Kirchner and Mondrian, whose colors were reduced digitally to 12 pixels. The squares of color were then used for woodcuts. Part of Sherrie Levine’s “Meltdown” series, information is changed, even lost, in the

digital transformation. Another work features images of wigs printed on pieces of felt with pinned notes (likewise on felt). The artist, Lorna Simpson, is interested in aspects of identity, especially stereotyping of black women. The curators hope the exhibit leads to a greater understanding of printmaking and how diverse it is. Also, Wagner says, the show places the works

in the overall contemporary art picture. “These artists for the past 60 years have taken the work they’ve done with publishers very seriously and found routes for experimentation.” WHAT “Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now” • WHEN Sunday through Feb. 3; hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday • WHERE St. Louis Art Museum, 1 Fine Arts Drive, Forest Park • HOW MUCH $14 for adults; $12 for seniors and students; $6 for ages 6-12; free for members and on Fridays (timed tickets for Fridays go fast) • MORE INFO 314-534-1111 for tickets (members call 314-655-5335 for special code); slam.org

‘Grinch’ remake works best when it sticks to Seuss’ story Benedict Cumberbatch voices the green grouch in a computer-animated adaptation of the classic book ★★½ BY KATIE WALSH | TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

e all feel a little grinchy sometimes. When holiday cheer becomes particularly oppressive, when we feel lonely in a crowd, when we would rather rain on someone’s parade than admit defeat, Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) gave us a way to describe that feeling with his classic children’s book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” The universality of the emotion is why the tale endures — and why we’re now on our third film adaptation of the story. Benedict Cumberbatch steps into the title

role, but fortunately for him, there’s no prosthetics or makeup involved — this is all computer animation. The new animated version brings us closer to the 1966 TV movie starring Boris Karloff. The film, written by Michael LeSieur and Tommy Swerdlow, directed by Yarrow Cheney and Scott Mosier, is faithful to the book, particularly in the visual style. The animation, by Illumination Entertainment, is stunning, detailed down to the fleece on a jacket, the fur on the Grinch and the snow in the village of Whoville. The story about the Grinch stealing Christmas and his heart growing three sizes is padded out with a bit more backstory for

GO! MAGAZINE • ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH • 11.09.18-11.15.18

Miss Cindy Lou Who (Cameron Seely). Cindy Lou has a Christmas wish she badly needs to discuss with Santa. She’s hoping her frazzled single mom, Donna (Rashida Jones), catches a break, as she works all night as a nurse and spends all day taking care of Cindy and her twin baby brothers. Here’s a tip, Cindy: The real S-word that could solve these problems isn’t Santa — it’s socialism. So while “The Grinch” brushes up against the crushing horrors of late capitalism in terms of both the conspicuous consumption of Christmas gifting and the reality that is providing for a family and securing childcare, the film doesn’t get too deep. Who would expect it to? This is an adaptation of a children’s book that’s about finding the true spirit of Christmas in community and connection, about learning to let go of old hurts and old ways and reaching out to neighbors. It’s about love and kindness prevailing over everything else. It’s just odd this would be the backstory the writers chose for Cindy Lou’s mother. However, it is relatable for American audiences.

The Grinch’s issue is he’s felt rejected by the Whos since he was an orphan, and Christmas is his trigger. You know the old tale — he enlists his loyal dog, Max, to steal all the Christmas gifts, and the film gets into the logistics. There are necessary additions to the story, but anything that isn’t directly from Seuss’ book simply feels like fluff. Cumberbatch does elevate the material, but don’t expect to hear any of his dulcet English tones. He goes for a higher, more nasally American accent, but it’s a wonderful voice performance. Kenan Thompson is also a standout as Christmas-obsessed Bricklebaum. “The Grinch” is beautiful to look at, and it’s diverting enough. The new material written to fill out the story is entertaining, but it doesn’t resonate. You can’t top what Seuss wrote, especially the poignancy of the Grinch realizing Christmas can’t be stolen, because it isn’t a thing. It’s an idea, a spirit, a song. That’s always going to be a good reminder for us every holiday season. WHAT “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch” • RUN TIME 1:30 • RATING PG • CONTENT Brief rude humor

Chris Pine in “Outlaw King”

‘Outlaw King’ is kind of a bad ‘Braveheart’ spinoff Chris Pine stars as Robert the Bruce in a predictable, monotonous and badly written mess ★ BY MICHAEL O’SULLIVAN | WASHINGTON POST

S

et in early 14th-century Scotland, “Outlaw King” could be described as a spinoff of “Braveheart,” the stirring historical epic about Scottish rebel William Wallace that cleaned up at the 1996 Oscars, winning awards for best picture, best director (for Mel Gibson, who also starred) and best cinematography, among other prizes. It could be described that way because the character of Wallace, who is in hiding when “Outlaw King” begins, makes a brief appear-

stltoday.com/go

ance in the new film, which tells the story of Wallace’s contemporary, Robert the Bruce, played by Chris Pine beneath a salt-andpepper beard and an unflattering mullet. Technically, only a part of Wallace shows up here, after he has been captured by the English and drawn and quartered for his disloyalty to the crown. It’s one arm and part of his chest, a grisly warning of more violence to come in this bloody — and bloody awful — historical epic that reunites Pine with his “Hell and High Water” director David Mackenzie. This tedious slog through the highland muck should win no Oscars — only groans

and raspberries. Even the much-buzzedabout glimpse of a nude Pine, as his character emerges from a lake, doesn’t make this worth watching. Robert picks up the mantle of rebellion against the British monarch King Edward I (Stephen Dillane) and his cruel son (Billy Howle, in a ridiculous bowl haircut that makes Robert’s shag look good by comparison). Reacting to oppressive taxation, the forced conscription of young Scottish men and the imprisonment of his young bride (a fiery Florence Pugh of “Lady Macbeth”), Robert takes up arms against England as he slowly recruits other Scottish noblemen to the cause of guerrilla warfare. The film culminates in the 1307 Battle of Loudoun Hill, which was a turning point in the struggle for Scottish independence. In the context of “Outlaw King,” the overlong, overly violent and chaotic scene delivers another form of liberation: ours, from a movie that is a predictable, monotonous and badly written mess. When, for example, the English lay waste

to an outlaw stronghold, we hear an English soldier shout, in one of many lines of painfully on-the-nose dialogue, “This is what you get for supporting Robert the Bruce!” Noted. Later, when we watch an ambush, we hear, just as unnecessarily, “It’s a trap!” The screenplay, credited to Mackenzie, Bash Doran, James MacInnes, Mark Bomback and David Harrower, is ponderous and literal, like color commentary from a “Monday Night Football” personality who’s been transferred from the Sports desk to Medieval Warfare. It’s almost refreshing when the wife of a Scottish rebel greets her husband, upon his return from the resistance, with this anachronistic-sounding greeting: “Where the f— have you been?” If nothing else, the question is good for an unexpected laugh, which is more than can be said for the rest of this otherwise emotionfree saga.

Two redeeming moments among ‘Bohemian’ cliches The slow-moving hit melodrama about Freddie Mercury and Queen is packed with factual errors BY GREG KOT | CHICAGO TRIBUNE

here are a couple of entertaining scenes in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the new Queen biopic. Unfortunately, you have to wade through more than two hours of slow-moving, clichepacked melodrama to get to them.

T 20

Both extended scenes are focused on the band’s music, which included some massive hits and a few wild swings and misses spread over a two-decade career. There was very little in-between with Queen, but this movie plays it down the middle as much as possible. Nonetheless, “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a hit, at least after its first weekend at the box office. The British quartet’s ambitions were

always stadium-sized, and so are the movie’s numbers: $50 million in weekend ticket sales in U.S. and Canada, and another $72.5 million internationally, according to studio estimates. That attests to the band’s, and particularly Freddie Mercury’s, enduring appeal. The singer, who died of AIDS in 1991, has emerged posthumously as a gay icon whose music continues to sell, repurposed in countless movies and TV shows, his story told in numerous biographies and documentaries. His band has sold more than 150 million records worldwide. Yet, the movie resorts to convention in portraying the life of this most unconventional of rock stars. It skims the surface of how Farrokh Bulsara, the rebellious son of a family with Indian roots, reinvents himself

as Freddie Mercury. It sanitizes Mercury’s complicated love life, portraying him as victim manipulated by one of his gay lovers. And it turns two tumultuous decades of Queen’s roller-coaster career into a script assembled from banalities: “Let’s get experimental.” “We want more.” “Freddie, you’re gay.” “The blow is so divine.” “I don’t need anyone.” “What if I don’t have time?” “We are the champions.” Though the movie was done with the cooperation of two of Queen’s surviving band members — guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor — it’s riddled with factual errors and distortions. Mercury’s solo career in the ’80s is portrayed as causing a major rift in the band, yet May and Taylor also released solo work in the same decade. The firing of band manager John Reid is turned into an stltoday.com/go

ugly confrontation over loyalty, even though it actually was an amicable split after the manager’s contract expired. Key songs (including “Fat Bottomed Girls” and “We Will Rock You”) are shown being recorded or performed years out of sequence. And the climactic scene, the band’s appearance at Live Aid in 1985, is depicted as a last, triumphant stand for the recently reunited quartet with Mercury dying of AIDS. In reality, the concert was the culmination of a nearly yearlong tour, and the quartet would go on the road stltoday.com/go

again the next year after completing another album. Mercury actually didn’t tell his bandmates that he had AIDS until two years later. More troubling is the way the movie addresses Mercury’s affairs off-stage. The singer’s sex life is portrayed less as a personal choice than an illicit descent into a sinister underworld. He is lured there by a backstabbing lover, band manager Paul Prenter, a convenient villain for all of the problems endured by Mercury and, by extension, his band. It reduces his story to a moral account-

ing — the “deviant” punished for his sins but allowed one last chance at redemption. When the movie sticks to the music, it captures some of the band’s spirit. May’s innovations get a well-deserved hat tip — his skill at orchestrating guitars was there from the get-go, with the phasing effects that elevated the band’s first single, “Keep Yourself Alive” in 1973 (though this was just an appetizer for the virtual Dixieland band he conjured on “Good Company” a few years later, which is not addressed in the movie). The recording of the six-minute single that serves as the movie’s title becomes a centerpiece, as it sketches the story behind the creation of the multipart suite without a chorus that shouldn’t have become a hit but did anyway, twice. The band bursts out laughing as it attacks some of the countless harmonies and Taylor strains to grab impossible falsetto notes. What’s it all mean? This business about “Mama, I just killed a man,” the references to a character from Italian literature and a Mozart opera, the Muslim religious invocation? The movie doesn’t provide any clues. Its campy, Dadaist mystery endures. The song is Exhibit A in ’70s excess, and yet its appeal spans generations — thank you, Penelope Spheeris and “Wayne’s World.” The most clever in-joke in “Bohemian Rhapsody” is the casting of “Wayne’s World” star Mike Myers as the besieged record-company executive who, upon hearing the epic song for

the first time, protests that it will never make teenagers head-bang in their car. The handbanging, the raised fists, the communal swaying in sync with the movements of the charismatic “frontman” were rituals born at rock stadium concerts in the ’70s, and there was no better band at creating spectacle on such a mass scale as Queen. Little wonder that a simulation of the quartet’s relatively brief but spectacular performance at Live Aid delivers the movie’s closing exclamation point. Mercury (played with verve by Rami Malek) prances in his sleeveless T-shirt and mustache, revving up the crowd. The original performance, available on YouTube, turns surreal when cameras survey the massive crowd from the stage at Wembley Stadium in London, the audience’s density suggesting one of Sebastião Salgado’s photos of swarming Brazilian gold miners. It’s both awe-inspiring and disturbing, this hive of humanity moving in sync with a single performer. But the movie’s images are warmer, more benign. There are close-ups of tears and hugs in the generation-spanning audience, the fans reveling in the resilience of their Freddie: “We are the champions … and we’ll keep on fighting to the end.” It’s undeniably stirring. It’s also a Hollywood ending. The real Freddie Mercury, and the real Queen, weren’t so easily pinned down.

they’re awesome, and while you certainly could make a case for a complete reinvention, I find myself responding to my own nostalgic feelings of wanting to go back to those characterizations,” Meledandri told Variety. “The challenge for us has been to find something that really does feel like it’s not simply yet another film in a series of sequels.” Universal purchased the rights to DreamWorks — the studio that created “Shrek” — in 2016 for a reported $3.8 billion. Meledandri and Universal are both co-owners of the Illumination studio, which

also produced “The Secret Life of Pets” and this weekend’s “The Grinch” movie. Universal chief Steve Burke previously said in 2016 following the acquisition of DreamWorks that the company would explore the possibility of bringing back “Shrek.” The first “Shrek” movie premiered in 2001, and three sequels have followed in the years since. The lone “Puss in Boots” movie came out in 2011 and is based on the cat character that appears in multiple “Shrek” movies. A rep for Universal did not immediately provide any additional information. stltoday.com/go

A reboot of the popular animated franchise about a green ogre is now in the works through the studio behind the “Despicable Me” movies, Variety reported. Chris Meledandri — the head of Illumination Entertainment — told the outlet he was tapped by Universal Pictures to come up with new ideas for both “Shrek” and its spinoff flick, “Puss in Boots.” Meledandri expressed an eagerness to reunite cast members such as Mike Myers (who voices Shrek), Eddie Murphy (Donkey) and Antonio Banderas (Puss in Boots) for future installments. “When you look back on those vocal performances,

Here are reviews of selected films screening this week at the St. Louis International Film Festival, which continues at various venues through Sunday. Find more information at cinemastlouis.org/sliff.

‘BIG MUDDY’ The Missouri-filmed “Big Muddy” would like to be a road movie on the river, a story of estranged brothers who reconnect and rediscover their brotherly love on a trip down the Missouri. But it’s really just endless scenes of two guys in a canoe. Director Matt Shapira chooses a languid pace to tell the minimal story, with the result that much of the film is lifeless. The ending is surprisingly effective (surprising, because so little of note comes before it), and actress Kassandra Clementi has a nice turn as an empathetic woman they meet along the way, but too much of the movie is spent showing the brothers silently paddling on the river, interspersed with shots of the brothers gliding on the river without paddling. Paul Piercy, who wrote what must have been a very short script, stars as the ne’er-dowell brother, Duncan, who is so caught up in his own vice that he doesn’t even go to his own mother’s funeral. Brian Smith plays the more virtuous brother, Bo, who stltoday.com/go

inherits his mother’s estate. As happens more in stories like this than in real life, he is instructed to give his brother half of the money only if Duncan can prove he is worthy of the inheritance. So Bo asks Duncan to come with him on a river trip from Kansas City to St. Louis. For unexplained reasons, they only make it as far as Jefferson City. And here’s the problem: Before the brothers even meet, Shapira and his team of editors spend 2½ minutes showing nothing more than Duncan traveling by train from Chicago to Kansas City. And the pace, which was slow even before that, never picks up from there. The actual Big Muddy river is swift-moving. But the movie version is just stagnant.

‘PARALLEL CHORDS’ “Parallel Chords,” which was named best narrative feature at the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase, is a deeply felt, intensely personal film from Catherine Dudley-Rose. The audience, however, may find it less cathartic than she did in making it. Rachel Ann stars as Jacqueline, the musically gifted daughter of a concert pianist generally overplayed by Bjorn Johnson. He is an overbearing father and insists

that she focus her attention on becoming a violinist. But Jacqueline would rather act — or do anything to get out from under the thumb of her father. Perhaps that is enough for a short film, which is how “Parallel Chords” first began, but a full-length feature needs more things to happen. A date-rape scene adds little, because it is unrelated to the story’s themes and feels included at random. Kyle Krupinski’s camera work, while often too dark, is more fluid than much of the acting. That is not surprising in movies with a budget of this size, though Johnson has piled up an impressive array of roles. Ann makes an appealing protagonist, though she is sometimes too quiet and still to earn our interest. Dudley-Rose, who wrote and directed, obviously based the story on her own life. Her father, the late Raymond Dudley, was a concert pianist; the music we hear the father character playing is in fact his recordings, and the film is dedicated to him. Seeing that dedication is actually the emotional highlight for the audience. Now that she has this selfexploring movie out of the way, it will be intriguing to see what she comes up with next.

TV Q&A ▼

Q • Will “The Amazing Race” be back? A • A new season, the 31st, is due sometime in 2018-19, but I do not have an air date yet. The show’s casting site, theamazingracecasting. com, is accepting applications for the 32nd season, which will be shot in the summer of 2019. Q • Probably the funniest comedy series I ever saw in my life was BBC’s “Little Britain.” It starred two comedians who played a multitude of characters in their skits. What are the two actors doing now, and will more episodes ever air? A • Following a radio version, TV’s “Little Britain” aired for three seasons on the BBC, the last of which was in 2007. A successor, “Little Britain USA,” aired for six episodes on HBO in 2008. I do not know of any plans for more, but these days “The X-Files,” “Murphy

Brown,” “Will & Grace” and other shows keep me from saying never again. The stars and writers on the show were David Walliams and Matt Lucas. Lucas has been in the movies “Bridesmaids” and “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” among others, as well as TV shows such as “Portlandia,” “Galavant,” “Bull” and “Doctor Who.” Walliams has continued acting, in some movies as well as several British TV shows, but is better known as an author of children’s books, estimating sales of 26 million copies in 53-plus languages of titles such as “Ratburger,” “The World’s Worst Children” and “The Ice Monster.” Q • Why did Amanda Blake leave “Gunsmoke”? Were there health reasons? When she left, the show wasn’t the same. Also, they had Milburn Stone, who played Doc, go out of state to a school, but when he came back he

looked great. Was that health reasons, too?

leave — salary dispute, contract was up?

A • Blake, who played Kitty on the classic western, told the Chicago Tribune in 1985 that she left in 1974 because she had grown tired of traveling from her Phoenix home to Hollywood to make the show. “They gave it a shot for a year after me, and it didn’t work anymore,” she added. “That’s a nasty thing for me to say, but it’s true.” And, in fact, the series ran only one more season after Blake’s departure. She did play Kitty again in a 1987 reunion movie; she died in 1989.

A • Monica Raymund, who played Gabby Dawson on the NBC drama, was at the end of her contract when she decided not to stay with the show. In one published interview, she said, “I felt like I was hungry to explore a different role, a different story. I wanted to explore a different world. I had been in Chicago for five years and just personally where I was in my life, I was ready to create my home and kind of plant some roots in Los Angeles. … It’s wonderful to be employed for that long and to have job security. … But sometimes you have to take a risk to diversify your opportunities.”

Milburn Stone had a heart attack in 1971 and missed several episodes while recovering. When he returned to the series, he remained until it ended in 1975. He died in 1980.

sively violent zombie apocalypse epic, which all began from his perspective: He was a wounded sheriff’s deputy in Georgia who woke from a coma in a hospital that had been abandoned during a sudden zombie outbreak. Initially reunited with his wife, Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), his son, Carl (Chandler Riggs), and colleague Shane (Jon Bernthal), Rick became the de facto leader of a band of survivors who slowly journeyed outward from the Atlanta megalopolis (and its infinite supply of zombies). Many arduous seasons later, Rick’s group made its way to Northern Virginia in a seemingly hopeless search

for safety and security amid stressful group dynamics and deadly conflicts with packs of other humans. No character on this show is ever guaranteed a permanent stay, regardless of what happened to “The Walking Dead” comicbook characters they were all based on: Shane became a zombie and was killed; Lori died many seasons ago, leaving Rick with an infant daughter, Judith. Even Carl, who had grown from being the show’s preteen nuisance to one of its noblest citizens, took his own life last year after a zombie bit him. Countless other friends have come have gone — eaten, murdered, beaten to a pulp. Along the way, Rick changed. The violence and loss took its toll, and his heroism flagged in the face of all that self-preservation. Thanks to far too many violent encounters with the living, the leader of the pack discovered his own inner monster, as well as a potential to be a righteous tyrant. Rick got lost in the post-zombie world’s widening chasm of moral choice, and viewers stopped worrying so much about zombies. The show was

about humans treating each other terribly — with no end in sight. It was that aspect of the show — no end in sight — that effectively keeps fans of the show tuned in, while slowly alienating the rest of us, who grew too weary with the evercircling plot to go on. “The Walking Dead” is a show for the video game era — resetting and rearranging players without any hope of true conclusion. It offers no narrative payoff for your time investment, other than the standing offer to keep going, full gore ahead. Sunday’s episode saw Rick fending off the zombies once more — pulling himself off the rod of rebar on which he was accidentally impaled last week, then hallucinating his way through some flashback-type settings and encounters that have defined the show since it premiered in 2010. He visited with dead characters (Bernthal’s Shane; the late Scott Wilson’s Hershel; Sonequa Martin-Green’s Sasha), each urging Rick back to consciousness, where, in a final scene, he blew up a bridge that sent dozens of flaming zombies into a swift-moving river. Despite AMC and actor Lincoln’s insistence that this is the end of Rick, he was nevertheless found downstream, alive, by a character named Anne, who summoned a helicopter (!) that scooped Rick up, tended to his wounds and flew off into the far horizon. If that’s the very last we ever see of Rick Grimes, then I’ll eat someone’s arm. Rick or no Rick,“The Walking Dead” thrives on its own intensity, shedding producers and showrunners wherever necessary. The acting is still often quite convincing and emotionally sharp — a tone Lincoln helped define. The pace cannot be argued with, particularly the keen way with which the show constructs its cliffhanger scenes around cable’s incessant commercial breaks. There’s a good reason so many people watch the show (and why it still requires its own hourlong, cathartic winddown immediately after, called “The Talking Dead”). It still delivers on a simple formula. This was certainly true Sunday, when the touted attraction that we showed up for (Rick’s departure) had its thunder impressively stolen by a last-minute swerve that seemed to be an open invitation for lapsed fans to start believing again. In the episode’s final scene, the show’s timeline shifted forward six years, where a group of humans were rescued from a zombie attack by a pistolpackin’ young lass named ... Judith Grimes. It’s the easiest kind of emotional symmetry, providing the show one more opportunity to press that reset button and lure the hordes of “Walking Dead” zombies — I mean viewers — toward the scent of another reset.

SMALL BITES ▼

Good Buddy’s Tasty Soups & Sandwiches lives up to its name BY IAN FROEB POST-DISPATCH RESTAURANT CRITIC

s previously established in Small Bites, I’m a sucker for a messy sandwich. You can also bait me with a good or even just OK pun, so I was destined to order the Loin Ranger, a recent special at Good Buddy’s Tasty Soups & Sandwiches. The heart of the Loin Ranger is pork loin simmered in a vibrant stew of tart tomatillos and smoky, fruity green chiles. Good Buddy’s accents the pork with garnishes that snap (red

A

onion, a citrus-spritzed slaw), cool (avocado, queso fresco) and scorch (raw jalapeño). The Loin Ranger spills out of its toasted hoagie roll as soon as you unwrap the sandwich and breaks free entirely when you take the first bite. I’m in love. Even if you work or live downtown, you might not stumble upon Good Buddy’s. It occupies a small storefront on the quiet block of Pine Street immediately east of North Tucker Boulevard. Brothers Nathan and Luke Ragain and their friend Justin Gibson opened Good Buddy’s in June. The three have worked at numerous restaurants, and for several years they worked together at DB’s Sports Bar south of downtown. If the Loin Ranger doesn’t join Good Buddy’s regular menu, my go-to order will be the Chicago Beef ($9), jus-slicked roast beef with roasted bell peppers and a mild

giardiniera. For the kick the giardiniera doesn’t provide, ask for the cherry-pepper relish. The Chicken Club ($9) isn’t a sexy as the Chicago Beef or Loin Ranger — and as you can tell from the photograph, it isn’t as messy, either — but the bacon is crisp and the hunks of chicken actually taste like chicken rather than generic watery deli meat. The price of your sandwich doesn’t include a side, but the thick housemade chips with barbecue or salt-and-vinegar seasoning are worth the extra $2.50. Or you could pair your sandwich with the smoked chicken and rice soup ($4). Its dusky, spicy accents of poblano and green chile are similar to the Loin Ranger, though any mess you make with the soup is your own fault.

latest vehicle wearing that storied name, which debuted on a fondly remembered last-century Chevy bad boy, isn't the Blazer of your granddad's memories. Fans will recall that the original 1969-91 Chevy Blazer was a big, full-size truck and an off-road party pal. Essentially a truncated 1500 pickup with a covered back seat, this tough guy could tow your trailer, tote your stuff and tackle your favorite trail. And even the subsequent -- and smaller -- S10 "Baby Blazer," offered from '83 to '05, was a formidable ruffian in its own right, particularly in its factory-lifted twodoor ZR2 trim. Have no doubt, these oldster Blazers were

century. And that reality is this: save a few successful real-deal SUV outliers -- Jeep can't make Wranglers fast enough, Toyota enjoys success with its truck-tough 4Runner, Ford is about to enter the SUV fray with a 2020 Bronco aimed squarely at Wrangler -- the real money these days is in the soft-roader, unibody crossover segment. And, so, we get the 2019 Chevy Blazer, a crossover SUV aimed at the likes of the Nissan Murano and Ford Edge.

Of even more interest, perhaps, is connectivity, and here Blazer shines with an 8-inch

doll with its black-mesh-filled grille and streettruck attitude. But even lesser Blazers boast standard 18-inch wheels that can be optioned up to 20s while RS and Premier boast 20s standard with 21s on the options sheet.

with all-wheel drive available. Boasting a crossover - impressive 4,500-pound towing capacity in V-6 guise, that six-pack Blazer also offers a rear-view camera with "Hitch Guidance" to help more easily align things up when attaching a trailer. Meanwhile, the cargo bay, available with a handsfree power liftgate and versatile rail-and-fence cargo-management system, can haul more than 62 cubic-feet with the rear seats folded. Of course, more important than towing and toting as far as most crossover buyers are concerned these days is tech, and Blazer doesn't disappoint. All the expected active safety nannies are present on the available-features list, including the aforementioned trailer-hookup help, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross

Some people just love to bid. East won the opening lead with the queen of diamonds, cashed the ace of diamonds, and continued with the king, ruffed by declarer with the 10. The ace, queen, and nine of spades drew the outstanding trumps, and the queen of clubs lost to East’s ace. East exited with a club to dummy’s jack and South paused for a moment to consider the rest of the play. East could not have a bal-

anced hand with the queen of hearts. That would give him 15 points and he would have opened one no trump. South knew that it was pointless to cash the ace of hearts and lead low to his jack. That play couldn’t work. Instead, he led a low heart to his king, hoping to see a singleton queen or 10 from East. When East followed with the three, South’s only hope was that East started with the 10-3 doubleton. Declarer led the jack of hearts from his hand and ran it when West played low. This pinned East’s 10 and gave South his contract. Well done! Better defense by East would be to win the opening lead with his king of diamonds, cash the ace, and shift to a trump. South might still get the information that he needed, but he would have to work much harder to get it. (11/09/18)

DEAR ABBY

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

Daughter gives heartache in return authoritative and moody behavior is affecting our grandchildren. I love my daughter very much and always have. If you were in my shoes, Abby, what would you do for a more healthy and loving relationship for all involved? — STILL HER DAD IN FLORIDA Dear Dad • I would look back and examine all the things I did to foster her behavior. An example would be paying for her divorce. Then I would stop doing them and not resume until she agreed to consult a psychotherapist about her mood swings. Don’t do it for her or for yourself. Do it for the sake of your grandchildren. Dear Abby • Before I met my boyfriend of eight months, I planned a 10-day Japan vacation for next year with my best guy friend, “J.” We have been friends for eight years and have never had any romantic interest in each other. Both of us want to visit Japan because it’s on our bucket list. J and I were both single when we started making plans. Then I

met my boyfriend. My boyfriend knew from the beginning that this trip was going to happen next year. Because the date wasn’t “set in stone” or paid for until recently, my boyfriend thinks I should have called it off. He says I’m making the trip and my friend a higher priority than him. I feel canceling would be betraying my friend J. Am I being a bad girlfriend? — TRIPPED UP IN THE EAST Dear Tripped Up • A “bad” girlfriend? No. An independent one, yes. You say your boyfriend has known about this from the beginning. If he was more secure about himself and your relationship, he would know that J isn’t a threat. Not only should you take the trip, but also you should also use the time away to decide if you want a life partner as insecure as your boyfriend appears to be. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, Calif. 90069.

Differences: 1. Hair is shorter. 2. Line in sidewalk is moved. 3. Balloon is missing. 4. Bumper is missing. 5. Bush is missing. 6. Arm is not showing.

Dear Abby • Ever since high school, our adult daughter has had mood swings. My wife and I thought she’d grow out of it as she matured, but she hasn’t. At her request we sent her to a university far away, and we were proud that she earned her bachelor’s degree. We thought independent living would do the trick, but her personality and behavior toward us didn’t change. She’s an only child, and we spoiled her — bought her cars and paid for college. I asked her to try for scholarships to help us out, but she didn’t. She married and had two wonderful kids, but her mood swings persist. When I mentioned she see a counselor or therapist, she hit the ceiling and told me I was the one who needs therapy. Then she brought up my flaws and my past drinking problem. Granted, I have made mistakes, and I’m not perfect, but I’ve learned and grown. After 10 years she divorced her husband. She got custody of the kids and the house. Her divorce cost us a great deal of money. Her

MISS MANNERS

TV FRIDAY

Quick favor becomes prolonged fight

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

Dear Miss Manners • My husband asked me if I would hand him a specific item from his sizable work bag, which was across the room. I brought him the entire bag instead of removing the requested item. His response was to angrily snap at me that I might as well have not done him a favor at all and went on to imply that if I’m too lazy to do a favor in the manner requested, that I should say so and he would just do it himself. I was floored at the rudeness of it all and stubbornly stood my ground, saying that he should be more clear. He maintains it is common sense that I should have brought him the specific item requested, not the entire bag, and that it is not unreasonable to expect a favor to be done precisely as it was worded. He apologized for his overreaction, but he wants an apology

from me — for angrily telling him that the only proper response when someone does you a favor is “thank you” and that his argument is absurd. I just can’t bring myself to apologize for doing him a favor. I have a feeling this argument is going to stay around until I break down and apologize but fear it will set a precedent wherein asking for favors will become a dreaded question. Gentle Reader • At the risk of getting herself embroiled in this volatile dispute, Miss Manners will say this: Her own dear mother taught her never to look inside anyone else’s belongings and to just hand the whole bag over, as you did. She permits you to relay that to your husband. But for the sake of the marriage, you might preempt it by saying, “I am sorry that I got angry, dear, but ...”

Dear Miss Manners • I’ve quit drinking alcohol, and now drink tonic water in social situations. Is it rude to bring a bottle to a dinner party where I know a lot of different wines (but no other drinks) will be served? Or should I stick to water, as my friends don’t usually have tonics on hand?

Gentle Reader • Stick to water — for the moment, at least. Bringing your own beverage should really only be relegated to potlucks and fraternity parties. However, if you request the drink enough times when asked for your preference, Miss Manners has high hopes that eventually it will appear.

Treatment options for Candida glabrata infection FUNKY WINKERBEAN • By Tom Batiuk

Dear Dr. Roach • I am a 66-year-old female in good health. In May 2017, my Pap smear showed that I had an infection of Candida glabrata and an itchy fungal infection in my rear-end area. My family doctor prescribed nystatin and triamcinolone cream to treat the fungal infection, which seemed to help, and a six-day Diflucan treatment for the Candida. Once again, my recent Pap shows that I still have the Candida glabrata infection. My doctor referred me to an infection specialist. I will schedule that soon. There is a slight burning in my private parts. I have a few questions that I hope you can help me with: How concerned should I be about this infection? Can it spread to my bloodstream? Will it affect any dental procedures, such as implants? What medication will treat it? I am very concerned. — E.B.

Answer • Fungi are an entire kingdom of life. In medicine, we are mostly concerned about yeasts, such as Candida, and molds, such as Aspergillus. So I think you are talking just about one fungal infection, the yeast Candida glabrata, which is referred to more commonly as “a yeast infection.” C. glabrata is related to Candida albicans, the more common cause of yeast infection, which can affect the mouth and throat, but also can cause symptoms in a woman’s vulva and vagina, as well as the anus and rectum of both men and women. C. glabrata is more resistant to antifungal drugs, especially fluconazole (Diflucan), than C. albicans. So, if you had persistent symptoms, you might be treated with higher doses of fluconazole, a related drug like voriconazole or posaconazole, or with a cream preparation of a drug with better activity against C. glabrata, such as miconazole. The infectious disease specialist certainly will have expertise in dealing with this. It’s critical to remember, though, that just having Candida (of whatever species) on a Pap smear does not mean there is an infection needing to be treated. Most women do have some yeast as part of the normal microbes that live in and around the perineum (the general term for “private parts”). It’s the symptoms that justify treatment. In women without serious disease of the immune system (such as HIV, treatment with cancer chemotherapy, or some rare primary immune diseases), it is quite rare to develop invasive disease from Candida species, i.e., one that spreads to the bloodstream or would affect dental implants.
