Our Story M

What is your story? What imprint will you leave? any of us seem to have gone into the preservation mode and need a jump start to get our story going again. I know for a bit of 2021, I was in survival mode — for me, our Chamber businesses and the life I was used to. Now I am so ready for 2022 and have created a personal mission to help me write my story going forward. My personal mission grew out of renewed appreciation for friends and family. It grew out of watching my sister battle — and beat — pancreatic cancer only to find out she has breast cancer, enjoying time with my Nora Amato aging (but still young-at-heart) mom, watching our son spread his wings in his first year away at college, and reconnecting with my husband through it all while enjoying our dog who is 11 and being present with friends. These experiences heightened the value I place on people and the time we have together, and they informed my personal mission: To be present for my family, friends and relationships, and to give of my time and talents to my fullest extent. It’s a powerful experience writing down a game plan for life. We all know the saying: If you want something to happen, write it down. I would encourage each of you to do the same. (If you need inspiration, check out reflections from our board of directors on page 12.) I hope you will pause and reflect on the past few years and then move on. Leave the past where it belongs — behind us and learn from it. Creating a personal mission statement isn’t the same as drafting a bucket list or a to-do list. It’s articulating your purpose: what you want to be known for. When someone thinks of “x,” they think of you. Go ahead and think big. Your personal mission should be aspirational. None of us are superheroes, so achieving perfection is never the goal. What counts is striving, each day, to get closer to it. I can’t predict the future, but I’m confident in saying that every step you take in that direction will lead to a more fulfilling life — a happier you. chesterfieldmochamber.com

Trying new things is one of my goals in 2022: meditation, pickleball, the Golf Academy Plus (I don’t play golf – may start – baby steps), the Stretch businesses (Who can resist a good stretch?), remodeling our office space (a fresh new look for our Chamber), new and meaningful connections with our businesses, and new friendships. Maybe participating more, or for the first time, in Chamber activities can be on your list of “trying new things” in the new year? We are turning a new page in 2022. How will you write your story?

Year-End Reflections from Our Board of Directors Board Chair Tony White’s 7 Tips for Starting Each Day 1. Try to do something every day that makes you happy. 2. Just for today, I will try not to worry and live in the moment. The only action I can react to is right now — tomorrow is not promised. 3. When you approach a situation or something that Tony White really makes you angry, take a deep breath, exhale that negative energy, and try to look at the situation from a third-party perspective. 4. Do your work honestly. 5. Just for today, focus on being a kind person to people you meet. 6. Give thanks for all your blessings. 7. Remember that “givers gain.” Become a volunteer on one of the many Chamber committees — and watch your business grow. Happy New Year! There is so much to be excited about as we start this new year — despite our lives not being quite back to being normal as the Covid-19 monster and its variants occupy how we go about living. I’m happy to be healthy (vaccinated x2 plus having my booster shot). My five children and granddaughter are growing — thriving in college, work and life with healthy relationships. Like many of you, Covid’s effects and the actions taken by a few county officials had a big negative impact on my business and the restaurants I serve. However, I’m so pleased that Chesterfield and metro St. Louis are back enjoying the tomatoes and produce my company provides to our region’s excellent restaurants. I’m also excited to be able to check the box of helping Nora, our Chamber CEO and President, in a leadership role as the Chamber’s new chairman of the board this year.

Chesterfield Food Scene Hometown Chef Brings Farm-to-Table Fare to Chesterfield with Westchester By Mary Shapiro

W

estchester restaurant is being opened in Chesterfield just before New Year’s by the ultimate hometown boy.

Executive Chef Matthew Glickert — born and raised in Chesterfield, a 2007 graduate of Parkway Central High School who still lives here — is opening the restaurant at 127 Chesterfield Towne Center. “We are very close to completing the restaurant furnishings — we’re just waiting on bar stools, tables and chairs,” he said. Glickert got his start in the business at the age of 15, working alongside Bill Cardwell at Cardwell’s for 14 years. His resume also includes BC’s Kitchen and Sugarfire Smoke House, where he spent six years as executive chef. Ready to be executive chef at his own place, he teamed up with Bryan Herr, former owner of Naked Vine whiskey, wine and music venue, which closed in the spring during the pandemic, as well as some other partners who wish to remain anonymous. The name of the restaurant came from his partners in the venture. “One of the partners was born and grew up in Westchester County, New York — the name made sense, with us being in west Chesterfield,” Glickert said. “Westchester will be American cuisine, heavily farm-to-table influenced, with a focus on seasonality and local purveyors.” Glickert said he always wanted to open a restaurant where he grew up. “I couldn’t pass this opportunity up, to open my first restaurant,” he said. “Everything was going well in my previous employment, so I took a leap of faith. Professionally, the pandemic put chefs and restaurants in a tough spot — getting product in the door now is hard, because the chain of supply has shifted.” But Glickert is confident nonetheless, enough to plan to employ 15 to 20 people. A sample menu is on the website. “We want to focus on a from-scratch kitchen and handmade items, using as much locally sourced items as we can,” he said. 14

Out & About | January-March 2022

As far as the look of the restaurant, there will be a lot of leather, dark wood, gold, and navy blue colors, he said. “This will be a neighborhood joint, but with an elevation of service and sophistication of cuisine,” Glickert said. Westchester will be able to seat upwards of 66 and will be limited to dine-in only. Glickert said customers will recognize some of his dishes from other locations. “This will not be a completely new concept,” he said. “My flair will still be there.” He hopes also to showcase a lot of cheese and charcuterie. Westchester is consulting with Ted Kilgore, co-owner of Planter’s House, for beverages. “He’s going to help us build the bar program,” Glickert said, adding that six to seven signature cocktails will be among those on the list, with Herr curating a wine and beverage program. The opening of Westchester will be phase one of its development. Phase two will call for live music, to be opened by the owners in a space next door, he said. “I have no timetable on that yet — it depends on many scenarios,” said Glickert. He calls himself, Herr and other partners “hometown heroes, all from Chesterfield — this effort is a thing of love.” Plans are for the restaurant to be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays.

Community Is the Big — and Active — 55-plu When the city of Chesterfield completed its comprehensive parks, recreation and arts master plan in October 2019, demographic analysis showed a median age of 49 among city residents, well above the U.S. median age of 38.2. Currently, 43 percent of Chesterfield residents are 55 or older. Over the next 15 years, this demographic is expected to grow to nearly 50 percent of the city’s population. The good news? There are plenty of activities geared to this group.

City’s population by age segments. Source: City of Chesterfield Parks, Recreation & Arts Master Plan (October 2019)

“We have a really strong line-up of activities for older adults,” said Thomas McCarthy, Chesterfield’s Director of Parks, Recreation and the Arts. “We offer senior panel discussions, senior educational series, we do a ton of pickleball clinics and classes, Bingo lunches at the mall — and we’re expanding our senior programs across the board,” he said. “During the summer we have a huge water walking program at our pool in our lazy river — probably about 100 people who participate. We also do trips.” 16

Out & About | January-March 2022

Many of the activities are free or inexpensive. And McCarthy says the demand for senior programming “seems to be getting bigger and bigger.” The city also works to provide programming for residents of local retirement communities and assisted living facilities. “For people living in retirement homes, getting out and socializing is probably one of the biggest needs. Loneliness is a major issue, especially if their spouses have passed away or they’ve never been married. We provide some enjoyment and opportunity for friendship in a safe space,” McCarthy said. One especially popular activity is pickleball. “Pickleball is huge,” said Kari Johnson, Chesterfield’s Superintendent of Recreation. “We are looking to add six pickleball courts sometime in 2022. That’s exciting. We’ll be offering leagues and clinics and some fun opportunities for our seniors to get engaged.” Pickleball is very popular at the JCCSt. Louis, which recently expanded its open play hours at the J’s gyms. Open volleyball, open table tennis and open badminton are also available. “The J offers programs and services for all ages, both members and the public. Our senior members (65+) enjoy discounted memberships, a wide variety of group exercise classes (in person, virtual and aquatics), lap swimming, and swim lessons,” said Lisa Marucci, director of marketing and communications at the J. “We have stretch classes just for seniors, we have an exercise class about fall prevention, and a Forever Fit class.” “Our cultural arts are also a big draw,” she added. Highlights include the New Jewish Theatre, which will put on five productions in 2022, the St. Louis Jewish Film Festival, which will be virtual in March, and the St. Louis Jewish Book Festival taking @chesterfieldmochamber

place in November. Members get discounted access to all. Marucci is also looking forward to the J’s forty-second year hosting the Senior Olympics, which will take place Memorial Day Weekend in St. Louis. “Our Senior Olympians are very serious about their medals,” said Marucci. “They come back every year because they want to see their friends. We’ve got 90-years-olds participating.” Those interested in getting involved with the Senior Olympics but not quite up to racing for a medal, can sign up as a volunteer — at this event or in many other capacities. “We have tons of volunteer opportunities,” said Marucci. “People work in our community garden. They can be ushers at our theater programs or help out in the office.” “Everyone is invited to participate at the J, regardless of faith,” said Marucci. “It’s a gathering place that serves our entire community.” The J serves all ages, said Marucci, but “the first people who came back to the J after the

pandemic were older members.” “I think they were looking for community,” she said. Greg Davenport, executive director at the Chesterfield Family YMCA, has also seen older adults return to in-person programming faster and in greater numbers than other age groups. “What we’ve seen with adults of all ages — but especially those who are empty nesters — is that this is their social group. This is their second family,” said Davenport. “They missed that camaraderie when it was gone for a while.” Davenport said the in-person programs that have come back the strongest are group exercise classes, pickleball and aquatics. “They’re thriving because these activities bring people together.” Davenport acknowledges that some of the return to fitness centers is driven by people tired of working out in their basements. “But I think the other element of that is ‘I’m missing people I like. I missed my friends, and I’m missing that group that was my stress relief, my sanity, even during preCovid times, and now I need that more than ever.’” Davenport gave the example of community health programs the Y offers for those battling chronic diseases. “One of those is Exercise for Parkinson’s, and that’s a group that if you ever need some inspiration go watch,” said Davenport. “Because they are going through some tough challenges but are some of the most positive and kind people you’ll ever meet.” When the Y decided to January-March 2022 | Out & About

St. Luke’s provides a number of virtual offerings to support the health and wellbeing of the community. “While the pandemic has limited our inperson events, we offer a wide array of classes live online – Bone Builder’s Yoga, Medicare Diabetes Prevention, a lifestyle change program for participants 60 and older to help lower their risk of type 2 diabetes, and a free multi-session Wellness Head 2 Toe program that takes a more holistic approach to living well,” said Dawn Dubois, director of community outreach for St. Luke’s. “We also have several online health and wellness videos people can review at their leisure. And for those who want to enhance their physical fitness levels, reduce pain, improve balance, strengthen muscles and restore range of motion, we offer in-person fitness training.” Whether it’s playing pickleball, attending educational or cultural programming, or volunteering at a community event, Chesterfield’s Kari Johnson believes the greatest reward for older adults getting out and staying active is friendship. “They come to our events, and they are able to make new friends — even lifelong friends,” she said. @chesterfieldmochamber

March 16 - Is Your Business Eligible for Employee Retention Tax Credits (ERTC)? - Mark Klipsch Any business with under 500 fulltime employees can potentially qualify, including non-profits and start-ups. Your business may be eligible for a cash refund of up to $26,000 per employee! The Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) is an IRS tax credit designed to help small businesses. The credit refunds payroll costs already spent. There

is no need to pay back the ERTC and it is, in a sense, similar to the stimulus check that taxpayers received. The ERTC was not widely used until March 2021, when updated IRS regulations made this type of COVID-19 Relief more accessible. In short: thousands of businesses who once picked between the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and ERC can now potentially take advantage of both. Learn more by visiting www. EmployeeTaxCreditRecovery.com and join us for the March General Membership Meeting. Congress has allocated only so much funding for ERC refunds.

ocated at Mason Woods Village, at 13492 Clayton Road in Town & Country, CPAs for Hire LLC is an entrepreneurial-minded accounting, tax and advisory firm that offers services for individuals, families and on-the-go business owners wanting to focus on business operations while relieving the stress of keeping up with accounting, payroll or income taxes. The company provides a wide array of virtual and onsite services for small businesses ranging in size from sole proprietorships to more established businesses that need a part-time chief financial officer (through CFOs for Hire). Fry said he was a business owner himself, operating an indoor soccer facility and soccer retail store in Texas for five-and-a-half years. “Even though I was a CPA (certified public accountant) and accountant, I still had trouble finding the time to keep everything up to date, as I was trying to grow that business — it’s easy to get behind,” Fry said. He said the idea for CPAs for Hire “seemed a good opportunity to serve a lot of small businesses that seem to be underserved by affordable CPA professionals with an accounting focus.” January-March 2022 | Out & About

“We make sure accounting is in order and up to date for our clients, and we ensure they understand the results,” he said. “While most accounting firms focus on taxes, we provide a lot of services on a more affordable basis for companies that have, at most, a bookkeeper — and some have these services done by the owner or spouse or friend of the family. We take on functions they may not fully understand.” Fry’s staff serves mostly clients in Chesterfield and West County, though some of his several hundred clients are in other states. “We recently rolled out a new subscriptionbased accounting and tax services program, where people can go to our website and purchase accounting and tax services they need online,” said Fry, who lives in Chesterfield and calls the city a good place to locate a business. “All accounting firms offer accounting and tax help, but we truly are an accounting provider — we reduce the stress level.” He said many business owners try to do accounting themselves to save money but wind up, too often, getting in over their heads. “They get really concerned if an IRS notice comes in the mail,” he said. “We can make business owners more productive,” said Fry. “We try to get owners to focus more on revenues than expenses. Because owners’ resources can be limited when they’re starting out, we tend to see a lot of them hyper-focused on saving money when they should be more focused on generating revenues.” His subscription-based model “redefines CPA services.”

“Most people think of CPAs in terms of taxes. We focus on taxes as well but add to the process — getting accounting up to date so owners can understand the health of their businesses,” Fry, a CPA for nearly 25 years, said. The company also has other levels of services, up to a fiduciary wealth planning business. Monthly packages include QuickBooks Online, monthly accounting, full-service payroll, advisory time, annual income tax filings (personal and business), annual 1099 form filings, and fiduciary/ wealth planning with taxes in mind (through CWOs for Hire). For business start-ups, the company helps with best-fit entity selection, business registration, establishing accounting software and setting up meaningful categories to best reflect how owners want to view their financial results. “We understand our clients’ needs and can adjust our services as they change,” Fry said “Our CPA professionals are all entrepreneurial-minded, so they are able to not only serve as accountants but as trusted business advisors beyond accounting. We believe every small business should have access to affordable CPA professionals who can guide the owners down the right path of compliance and sustained profitability.”

Back to Work: The Local Labor Shortage and Outlook

An interview with Charles Gascon, Senior Economist, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

In recent months, most everyone has been affected by the shortage of workers at local businesses. Maybe you drove up to your favorite local lunch haunt to find it closed for the day or you experienced longer than usual waits for service. To get a handle on what’s impacting our labor market, we sat down with Charles Gascon, senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Can you explain some of the factors at work in the local labor market right now? One of the key pieces in understanding the labor market dynamic market right now is that there are still people who are impacted by the pandemic and sitting on the sidelines and not necessarily looking for work. But part of the reason we’re seeing all these reports of worker shortages is because consumer demand is so high and it’s so strong. In terms of overall output — goods and services produced — the Charles Gascon economy is producing more stuff now than it was pre-pandemic. We’re producing more stuff, consuming more services and doing it with a lot fewer workers. Nationally, we’re about 4 million workers short of where we were before the pandemic. In this economy where you have overall more economic activity and you’re doing it with fewer workers, it clearly creates a lot of congestion on the supply chain side of things and the shortages that we’re hearing about from businesses all over our federal reserve district. How much of a role does our aging population play? The key debate that’s taking place right now in the economics profession is understanding where early retirements have played a role in reducing the labor supply. Some of my colleagues have found that probably about 2.4 million people retired early, and the question becomes if they’re going to come back into the labor force and take a job or if they’re permanently out. Growth in the stock price value in retirement accounts definitely helped a lot of people feel comfortable taking that early retirement so there’s a chance that they might not come back in. One scenario that I see playing out right now is that we’re in an environment where the labor force chesterfieldmochamber.com

is growing slower than it was in the past — and that’s a continuation of a trend that started around 2000. The pandemic just accelerated that trend with retirements so that’s going to put pressure on job growth in the longer term. What specific challenges do we face in our local market? These demographic challenges are really exacerbated in the broader Midwest and in the St. Louis region. I think that’s going to be a bigger challenge regionally than it is nationally in that we don’t have the inward migration of younger people. The aging of our population is going to present some pretty significant challenges for the St. Louis region going forward. How is wage growth impacting labor market dynamics? We do an annual survey asking businesses about their hiring plans. Normally, about a third of firms say that they’re raising wages by more than in the past few years — and it jumped up to about two thirds of businesses in our most recent survey which is pretty notable. Stronger wage growth is a key piece here in trying to lure workers back in. There were a lot of layoffs during the pandemic, and it has been hard for restaurants and hotels to hire back to the staffing levels that they need to meet the demand that they’re seeing — so they’re pushing wages up pretty significantly. Leisure and hospitality wage growth is up about 10% from a year ago — which is very strong — and some of those hospitality jobs are starting to bump up against jobs that we typically think of as being high wage like manufacturing. So it’s starting to create spillovers and competition for workers in those sectors as well.

January-March 2022 | Out & About

What that means is manufacturers who would normally pay workers for entry level positions $16 or $17 an hour are having a hard time because you can go get a job in a coffee shop or at a hotel or restaurant at an hourly rate that’s comparable. And those jobs are less risky in terms of workplace injuries, don’t require much training and the hours are potentially more flexible — so that’s causing challenges in the manufacturing and transportation sectors. Beyond higher wages, what else are local businesses doing to attract workers? We are seeing more firms hiring workers at lower skill levels and training them up for the positions. It seems that that approach is most successful for larger firms, but it’s really hard for a small firm that maybe has only five or 10 employees to hire pipeline workers. Similarly, those firms where labor is not their highest cost have been more successful in raising wages. It doesn’t impact the bottom line in the same way as, say, a childcare center where labor costs are probably 60-80% of their costs. That being said, we are seeing a lot of businesses who are passing on their higher costs to their customers

as a way to account for these higher wages. Because the labor shortage is so widespread and well known now and being covered in national and local media, businesses seem to be willing to raise their wages and justify their price increases based on those higher wages — and their customers are willing to accept those new price increases for now. What can we do as a business community to attract more workers into the local labor market? One of things that seems to be important is workforce development programs and trying to build them up collectively. We do know workers change from one job to the next so the incentive for an individual firm to train a new worker and then see them go is tough. Working together with chamber organizations and state and local government entities providing workforce development programs can be really helpful in trying to broaden the pool of workers and get a better match of those skills. Any winners in this environment? There’s pretty robust academic research that looked at new business formation and startups created during recessions and hard economic times. They tend to be more lean and more robust — and they grow a lot faster. Businesses that are able to survive or thrive in this environment are going to be well positioned going forward because they have found ways to improve efficiencies and get the most out of the businesses they’ve created. That’s really the key takeaway.

Chesterfield Under Water By Ann Chrissos, Chesterfield Historic and Landmark Preservation Committee

M

ost of the early settlers in the Chesterfield area owned land along the Missouri River. These were the pioneers who populated the Village of St. Andrew, founded in 1798 by James MacKay. In December 1811 and February 1812, earthquakes along the New Madrid Fault caused the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers to flood. The residents of St. Andrew had to flee to higher ground. When the waters receded, life in St. Andrew resumed. However, the flood of June 8-10, 1844, was far more devastating. The Village of St. Andrew was completely destroyed, and its existence was relegated to the annals of history. New settlements soon developed in the area known today as Chesterfield Valley. These included Gumbo, Bonhomme, Centaur and the Town of Chesterfield. The Flood of 1927 greatly affected the residents of these new settlements. Their homes and cultivated fields were inundated with water from the Missouri River and Bonhomme Creek. Severe flooding also occurred in 1935, 1943, 1951 and 1973. It was a common practice for locals to use row boats to communicate with neighbors, to evaluate the damage to their property, or to escape the flooded area. The greatest economic loss resulted from the Great Flood of July 29, 1993. * Chesterfield Valley was under eight-to-10 feet of water, which took several weeks to recede and many more weeks to clean up. Today, the 500-year Monarch Levee offers protection from future flooding to the valley’s residents and businesses. However, Mother Nature can generally find a way to thwart any manmade efforts to impede her wrath. Complacency can be dangerous.

Benefits of Stretching

B

y participating in a regular stretching program, you will be able to increase flexibility, which will help everyday activities feel easier. It will also help slow down the reduced mobility that comes with aging, which means that we can feel younger if we are older. It can also decrease joint pain, by increasing the range of motion in the joints. If your joints are mobile, then it will give you what we call like to call freedom of movement. Taijhan Nelson Stretching regularly if you have joint pain or aches will help a great deal as well. Stretching helps get blood flowing to the muscles and joints, which helps relieve joint pain, and it also helps carry oxygen and nutrients to them as well. Increases in blood flow will also shorten your recovery time and help reduce muscle soreness. Assisted stretching post-exercise has the ability to improve day to day performance as well as improve your energy levels when exercising which makes movements during exercise smooth and fluid.

Wayfair Tax Supports Tax Fairness

The Chesterfield Regional Chamber of Commerce has been asked to weigh in on the issue of the City of Chesterfield applying sales taxes to online purchases from out-of-state vendors.

F

irst, a little history. For decades, the United States Supreme Court required that taxation of sales required a physical nexus, or connection, between the seller and the state imposing the sales tax. Not surprisingly, large national online sellers found a way to sidestep this tax: By using multiple subsidiaries, they could avoid establishing the nexus, even if the fulfillment center was in the state where the sale occurred. Using this strategy, companies like Amazon, eBay and Wayfair avoided David Weiss charging their customers sales tax — creating an unfair advantage over their brickand-mortar local competitors. But brick-and-mortar businesses remained relevant, even to many online shoppers. Consumers would regularly check out electronic goods and other products at a local store, and then buy the products online and save the sales tax. In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court again waded into the imposition of a local sales tax on online sales, even if no physical nexus existed between seller and consumer within the same state. This time, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of leveling the playing field. During the last legislative session this past year, the Missouri General Assembly authorized counties and municipalities to collect an online use tax to protect Missouri’s brick-and-mortar businesses. Now, the City of Chesterfield is submitting the question of whether to do so to its electorate. The Chesterfield City Council voted to put the use tax proposal on the April 5, 2022, ballot. If approved, the tax will go into effect in January 2023. So where does the Chamber stand on this issue? This begs another question: If services to the City’s residents are denied because of a lack of

funding, should every resident have to pay more through other means of taxation to make up the shortfall and get the services we expect? We say no — that’s not fair.

“A level playing field is fair, but there is no level playing field when one of the players has to play at an economic disadvantage.”

We support the imposition of sales tax for online sales. A level playing field is fair, but there is no level playing field when one of the players has to play at an economic disadvantage. We’ve seen too many of our business owner neighbors fight against these behemoths, only to slowly lose their businesses. Some of you may oppose the tax proposal because you don’t want to pay online sales tax. Understandable. But I urge you to consider the big picture. What would Chesterfield look like without the small, mom-and-pop stores that make up our community? Are we willing to pay sales tax on our online purchases to give them at least a fair shot at competing with the big guys? At the Chamber, we say yes. It’s only right to have big online companies collect sales taxes on sales made in Chesterfield — not only to level the competitive playing field but to more equitably support the amenities we want as a community. Now is the time to end the online seller’s exemption from collecting sales taxes. It’s only fair.

David Weiss is an attorney and Chesterfield Regional Chamber Board of Director.
