People Young cheetahs move to public display For The Edge On Friday, May 4, the eight 5-month-old cheetah cubs and their mother began having access to the public habitat in River ’s Edge at the Saint Louis Zoo during operating hours; however, there will be no set viewing schedule. Bingwa and her cubs are exploring their habitat at their own pace and can choose if they want to come out or stay behind the scenes. Because the Zoo is dedicated to caring for animals, providing them with the option of privacy is an important part of their quality care. On November 26, 2017, for the first time in Saint Louis Zoo history, a cheetah gave birth to eight cubs. The three males and five females were born at the Saint Louis Zoo River’s Edge Cheetah Survival Center. The mother and her cubs remained in their private maternity suite behind the scenes at River’s Edge for several months after the birth. In over 430 litters documented by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), this is the first time a female cheetah has produced and reared on her own a litter of eight cubs at a zoo. The average litter size is three to four cubs. Four-year-old Bingwa (pronounced BING-wah), which means “champion” in Swahili, continues to be an exemplary mother, according to the cheetah care team. “She has quickly become adept at caring for her very large

Saint Louis Zoo

The eight cheetah cubs born in November at the Saint Louis Zoo now have the opportunity to roam freely and meet zoo visitors. litter of cubs — grooming, nursing and caring for them attentively,” says Steve Bircher, curator of mammals/carnivores at the Saint Louis Zoo. At 5 months old, the cubs now weigh about 25-30 pounds each. They were given Swahili names by the animal care staff: • Moja (MOH-jah), female — means one • Mbili (BEE-lee), male — means two • Tatu (TAH-too), male — means three • Nne (NNN-eh),

female — means four • Tano (TAH-noh), male — means five • Sita (SEE-tah), female — means six • Saba (SAH-bah), female — means seven • Nane (NAH-neh), female — means eight Bingwa is on loan to the Saint Louis Zoo from Wildlife Safari in Winston, Ore., and nineyear-old father Jason is on loan from White Oak Conservation in Yulee, Fla. The birth of these eight cubs is a result of a

breeding recommendation from the AZA Cheetah Species Survival Plan (SSP), a program to manage a genetically healthy population of cheetahs in North American zoos. “We’ve brought together cheetahs from great distances to continue this important breeding program,” says Bircher. “These handsome cats add genetic diversity to the North American Cheetah SSP population.” Since 1974, the Zoo has

been a leader in cheetah reproductive research and breeding. Over 50 cubs have been born at the Zoo’s Cheetah Survival Center. Historically, cheetahs have ranged widely throughout Africa and Asia. Today, fewer than 8,000 cheetahs inhabit a broad section of Africa and less than 100 cheetahs remain in Iran. Over the past 50 years, cheetahs have become extinct in at least 13 countries. The main causes of cheetah

decline are human-cheetah conflict, interspecific competition and lack of genetic diversity. To help protect cheetahs in the wild, the Saint Louis Zoo WildCare Institute Center for Conservation of Carnivores in Africa is working with its partners in Tanzania and Namibia t o c o o rd i n a t e c h e e t a h conservation efforts, including education, research and other programs to mitigate human-cheetah conflicts. “Cheetahs are frequently persecuted for killing livestock. Our conservation partners are finding ways to improve the lives of local herders by providing education opportunities, food and medical supplies, so they can live peacefully with cheetahs and support their protection,” says Bircher. Photos and more information can be found at stlzoo.org/cheetahcubs, and on the Zoo’s social media sites facebook.com/ stlzoo, twitter.com/stlzoo, instagram.com/stlzoo, youtube.com/stlzootube and pinterest.com/stlzoo. About the Saint Louis Zoo Chosen as America’s top free attraction and best zoo in USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards, the Saint Louis Zoo is widely recognized for its i n n o v a t i v e a p p ro a c h e s to animal care and management, wildlife conservation, research and education.

People Civil rights exhibit on the move For The Edge The Missouri History Museum’s popular exhibit, #1 in Civil Rights: The African American Freedom Struggle in St. Louis, saw more than 260,000 visitors before closing on April 15, 2018. Due to the popularity and community impact of this exhibit, the Missouri History Museum has partnered with area institutions in order to share the powerful stories found in the exhibit with the St. Louis community for years to come. The bulk of the #1 in Civil Rights exhibit- labels of text, photographs and graphics – will travel to local institutions including the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, the Griot Museum of Black History & Culture, the University of Missouri –St. Louis and the Northwest Academy of Law and Social Justice. The Urban League will be the first to showcase the panels in an exhibit in their Vaughn Cultural Center on Grandel Square in the Grand Center Arts district. “As we move forward to the next 100 years, we must first preserve the history from the last 100 years as it exposes many fundamental lessons learned,” said Michael McMillan, president and CEO of the Urban League. The Urban League, which is celebrating its centennial in 2018, hopes to have the show open to the public in July and it will run through February of 2019. The panels will then go to the Griot Museum and the

Missouri History Museum

Panels as seen in the #1 in Civil Rights exhibit which had been featured at the Missouri History Museum. The exhbit now travel to other institutions where it will be displayed. University of Missouri –St. Louis, which have partnered to showcase panels from the exhibit at a number of different locations at the museum and on the USML campus. In addition to showcasing the panels, both organizations have a full slate of proposed programs to continue to tell the St. Louis civil rights story in new ways. “Our collaborative use of the exhibit will do more than simply extend the life of this powerful and popular exhibit,” said Lois Conley, the founder and executive director of the Griot. “We will give it new life by reconfiguring

its elements according to e x p a n d e d i n t e r p re t i v e frameworks and supplemental interpretive material that will be contributed by students, historians, and members of St. Louis’s African American community.” The Missouri History Museum’s partnership with the Northwest Academy of Law and Social Justice, a St. Louis public high school, will give local students the opportunity to create their own civil rights exhibit. Beginning next fall, Museum staff will teach students public history methods and approaches that will help them create

an exhibit using both elements from #1 in Civil Rights and their own artwork and panels. “We are at a time in the history of this country where the children are rising up and creating the kind of future they want to live in,” said Krista Germann, the school’s social studies department chair. “#1 in Civil Rights can be the inspiration and the blueprint for the action our children take to create the St. Louis they want to live in.” The Missouri History Museum is committed to telling the stories of everyone who has called the St. Louis region

home through exhibits, programming and partnerships such as these that allow the institution to share the history of this region beyond Museum walls. “So much of this history had been forgotten. We w a n t e d t o m a k e s u re these stories were never f o rg o t t e n a g a i n , ” s a i d Jody Sowell, director of exhibitions and research for the Missouri History Museum. “We are proud of the partnerships we have made with the Griot, UMSL, Northwest, and the Urban League, we are excited to see what they do with the panels, and we are committed to continuing

to tell these stories at the Missouri History Museum in new and exciting ways.” In addition to these partnerships, the Missouri History Museum is developing a traveling banner show based off the #1 in Civil Rights exhibit that will be available to libraries, community centers, and other public institutions. The show will be available for travel in October. Groups interested in hosting the show should e-mail exhibits@mohistory. org. About #1 in Civil Rights The fourth most-popular exhibit in the Missouri History Museum’s more t h a n 1 5 0 - y e a r h i s t o r y, #1 in Civil Rights: The African American Freedom Struggle in St. Louis was on display at the Museum from March 11, 2017 – April 15, 2018. The exhibit examined the local civil rights movement and the city’s leading role in advancing the cause of racial justice. #1 in Civil Rights uncovered a history that’s compelling and complex, but that all too often has been overlooked in the telling and retelling o f t h e l a rg e r n a t i o n a l narrative. That narrative includes four precedentsetting Supreme Court civil rights cases that originated in St. Louis— possibly the most to ever re a c h t h e H i g h C o u r t from one source. It also included events and battles that had a significant and lasting impact, as well as live performances from Missouri History Museum ACTivists.

The St. Clair County Transit District (SCCTD) announced the return of the popular Redbird Express bus service from St. Clair Square for the 2018 St. Louis Cardinals season. Bus service will be available for all St. Louis Cardinals home games. Parking in Downtown St. Louis for games can range from $15-40 or more. In addition, St. Clair County Transit takes the stress out of game day traffic, bridge construction, parking, gas expenses and more, by allowing game goers to sit back and enjoy the ride to and from the game. Details on the 2018 Red Bird Express are available at www.ssctd.org. Busses will depart from St. Clair Square, near the water tower, 2.5 hours before game time as busses fill, with the last bus leaving one hour before the game begins.

Fares are currently $5.00 per adult, and $2.00 for children ages 2 thru 12. Early departure from Busch Stadium is available once the bus fills up. “This program has always been popular with our Cardinals fans. It is so easy to get to Ball Park Village early enough to enjoy a beverage and a meal before the game, and the bus will be there, right where you left it, after the game,” said Chairman of St. Clair County Transit District Board Richard Meile. “We believe this program makes transit more accessible to the public. It allows riders to try our transit system they may not use every day, and see the potential for how transit can positively impact their everyday commute. Getting people to the places they want and need to go is always the goal, and SCCTD can take them there,” said Meile. Ken Sharkey is the new Managing Director of the St. Clair County Transit

Travel Harvard Milk Days in 77th year For The Edge This one-of-a-kind festival had its start during World War II when the McHenry County town of Harvard had seven dairies processing milk from hundreds of surrounding farms. Back then, Harvard billed itself the “Dairy Capital of the World,” and when local farmers revved up production to meet the increased demands of the war, the town built a music stage and held a street dance to thank them. Today’s Harvard Milk Days has grown from that humble beginning and ranks as the longest ongoing hometown festival in Illinois. This year, tens of thousands of fun seekers will make their way to this community just south of the Wisconsin state line June 1-3 for the 77th annual celebration. Preliminary events get underway weeks in advance with the crowning of the Milk Queen, the Prince and Princess Contest, Big Wheel and bed races and a golf outing, capped off by the Youth Parade on May 31. Featured events in Milky Way Park include tethered hotair balloon rides; milk drinking contest; demos on the care, feeding and milking of cattle; adult and junior cattle shows; and cow chip lotto. Additionally, there are carnival rides, food court, fun runs and walks, petting zoo, exotic animal exhibit, chain saw carving, live bands, talent show, antique tractor show, tractor and equipment exhibits, auction, Knockerball, and gala firework shows each evening. The two-hour Milk Days Parade on Saturday afternoon, June 2, struts down Ayer Street, which is whitewashed and dubbed “Milky Way.” Admission to the Milk Day grounds is free, but some events require a fee and/or registration.

“Avengers: Infinity War”

QuickGlance Movie Reviews

The scale of “Avengers: Infinity War,” of course, isn’t a departure for Marvel. It’s an apotheosis. But is it possible to supersize what is already colossal? “Infinity War,” which brings together more than 30 significant characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and enough spandex to clothe a small nation, is a little like launching an invasion after the war was already won. Despite assured dominance, Marvel has gone nuclear. “Infinity” is an interesting word for the Marvel machine, which sets much of its development pipeline a decade in advance. Never-ending is indeed how the superhero era of blockbusterdom sometimes feels, both to its fans and its critics. Even Steven Spielberg, who once said superheroes will eventually go the way of the western, recently signed on to produce a DC Comics film. But the title refers to the six “infinity stones” scattered around the universe, each conveying a power of sorcery, like the time-warping one held by Doctor Strange. They are dearly sought by Thanos, the indestructible Titan warlord, who rules over much of space but would like all of it. With all the McGuffins — er, stones — he can, with the snap of his fingers, wipe away half of the universe’s beings: a rapture to cull an overgrown herd, he envisions. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, language and some crude references.” RUNNING TIME: 149 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“Tully”

The title character of Jason Reitman’s “Tully” descends not from the clouds, carried by an umbrella in the wind, but glides cheerfully through the front door on a black night. She arrives just as Marlo (Charlize Theron), the mother of two plus an unplanned-for newborn, is reaching the limits of exhaustion. “Tully,” directed by Jason Reitman and penned by Diablo Cody, isn’t a song-singing fantasy like “Mary Poppins.” It lives in the unglamorous and sleepless postpartum haze of breast pumps and swaddles. But like “Poppins,” ‘’Tully” is a fantasy of parenthood — a homely fairy tale about a haggard mother who’s feeling her younger, former self slip away. It’s well into “Tully” before we meet Marlo’s savior: a 26-year-old night nurse (Mackenzie Davis), for whom Marlo’s wealthier brother Craig (Mark Duplass) has paid. He promises night nurses, who arrive in the evening and stealthily depart before sunrise, are “like ninjas” capable of reordering Marlo’s sleep-deprived life. Marlo is less sure. “You can’t just outsource your life,” she says. But her life is punishing. Her tantrumthrowing son Jonah (Asher Miles Fallica) is labeled “quirky” by his school, but they mean worse and they want him transferred out. Her husband Drew (Ron Livingston) is little help, oblivious to Marlo’s hardship. After work, he mostly zones out playing video games. RATED; R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “language and some sexuality/nudity.” RUNNING TIME: 94 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“Overboard”

Garry Marshall’s 1987 comedy “Overboard” might not have gotten the best reviews when it came out, but it was a viewing staple in my childhood home. Whether it was because of cable repeats, my parents’ taste, the irresistible charms of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, the (endearingly) absurd premise, or some combination of all of it, it’s one that we held in high regard and would often quote. “It’s a hell of a day at sea, sir” was a favorite as was “My life is like death, my children are the spawn of hell and you’re the devil.” It was a daunting prospect when a remake was announced, but I was cautiously optimistic. Anna Faris is a gifted comedian, and the gender-flipping seemed as viable an excuse as any to dust off the story of an amnesia-stricken billionaire who gets a karmic taste of working class life and, you know, learns some stuff along the way. Plus, they’d decided to diversify, casting Eugenio Derbez, a star in Latin America, as the wealthy jerk. Sadly, and perhaps inevitably, the 2018 “Overboard “ pales in comparison. Not only do its two stars have zero chemistry with each other, but the story goes out of its way to over-explain and over-justify the preposterous premise, adding needless complications (like a whole sideplot about his family’s business) and motivations to make everyone more likable and empathetic. The result is very much the opposite: A sterilized sitcom full of forgettable characters that makes poverty look like a Target ad and romance as fun as a drugstore greeting card. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “suggestive material, partial nudity and some language.” RUNNING TIME: 110 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.

Movies “Tully” goes down easy By ROBERT GRUBAUGH For The Edge C o m i n g i n f a r, f a r b e h i n d t h e massive second weekend box office of “Avengers: Infinity War” was the little-seen/little-heralded “Tully”, a story about new motherhood and the explosion of emotions that accompany it. I’m not qualified to write on this subject other than by having an association within my large family full of good moms. It’s appropriate that the week leading into the Mother ’s Day holiday features a female-friendly option for moviegoers that I could liken to “Mary Poppins” for adults. Fortunately, it goes down as easy as a sippee cup full of Chardonnay. It’s also a tremendous milestone in the resume of its principal production team, as you’ll see below when I give you a recent movie history lesson. Marlo (Charlize Theron, the consummate professional who gained

fifty pounds for this performance) is nine months pregnant with her third child and not coping very well with the “blessing” that’s taking its toll on her fragile life. She’s in a secure, mundane marriage with Drew (Ron Livingston) and she’s got two other kids that she loves dearly, but whose foibles are as exhausting for her as they for every parent out there. Sarah (Lia Frankland) is smart and popular, but she’s also loud and incredibly impatient, especially with her little brother, Jonah (Asher Miles Fallica), a “quirky” boy with some clearly outrageous, but mysteriously undiagnose-able, social a n x i e t y d i s o rd e r. H e s h u t s d o w n when loud noises or strange foods pop up. He’s struggling at school and is hyper-focused only in his inability to pay attention. Marlo sees a happy, well-adjusted little boy in him, but she can’t convince others to see past his behavioral problems. When little Mia comes along, Marlo’s house of cards takes a table leg bang in the form of her

late night feedings, incessant crying, and Diaper Genie marathon. Now, the stakes may not be anything for Marlo that any mom hasn’t experienced at one time or another, but her situation changes when her rich brother (Mark Duplass) hires here a ‘night nanny’, one who takes care of your baby while you’re sleeping, e n s u r i n g t h a t y o u ’ r e , y o u k n o w, actually sleeping. In this case, the nanny is the titular Tully (Mackenzie Davis), a Bohemian free spirit that launches into Marlo’s life and helps her find everyday cures for the sleeplessness, exhaustion, health, and happiness plagues that are eating her alive. She’s even a talented baker, housecleaner, and marriage counselor. Think of her as a twenty-something Mrs. Doubtfire with a pixie haircut and smoky eye. Tully and Marlo bond during her month with the family in a way that is deeply personal, uniquely funny, and charmingly frank. A vague, Poppins-ian ending works, though it

mildly unsatisfying to anyone not a fan of mermaids. Director Jason Reitman, a promising new voice more than a decade ago that has always delivered on a compelling finished product, first got my attention w i t h “ T h a n k Yo u f o r S m o k i n g ” , his breakthrough in ‘05. Two years later he first paired with screenwriter Diablo Cody on her inaugural script to make “Juno”, the story of a high school pregnancy, into an Academy Award winner. In 2009 he produced her “Jennifer ’s Body” (a cheeky horror film) and they brought Charlize Theron i n t o t h e m i x w i t h 2 0 11 ’ s “ Yo u n g Adult”. It took seven years, but the band is back together with Reitman, Cody, and Theron doing the bulk of the heavy lifting - though truthfully there’s not much - in “Tully”. “Tully” runs 96 minutes and is rated R for language and some sexuality/ nudity. I give this film one and a half stars out of four.

“RBG” entertains and inspires By JOCELYN NOVECK Associated Press That was the question — only partly in jest — that circulated back in early 2017 when President Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. The idea — for liberals, anyway — w a s t h a t R u t h B a d e r G i n s b u rg had better stay healthy, or the court’s precarious balance would be lost. We l l , a f t e r w a t c h i n g “ R B G , ” a n engrossing, entertaining and unabashedly adoring new documentary about the now-legendary justice — seemingly a fullfledged pop culture hero at this point — it starts to feel like maybe we’re the ones who need the kale. Those who closely follow Ginsburg, now 85, may already know that she works out with a personal trainer, but here we see her actually doing a plank, for what seems like a full minute. Yes, she does pushups too. (Her friends quip that they can’t even do half a

pushup — either half.) It’s no wonder that the term “superhero” is applied to Ginsburg early in the film, by no less than Gloria Steinem. But in a way, that term doesn’t do the justice’s story justice. Because s u p e rh e ro e s c o m e b y t h e i r s t a t u s magically. Ginsburg, we learn here, had to fight every inch of the way, with grit and tenacity and creativity and optimism and lots of all-nighters, over often stunningly difficult obstacles. The best parts of this film show us not how “cool” she is but how hard she worked, and how much she wanted what she got. Di re c t o r s Ju lie C o he n and Be ts y West gained impressive access to their subject, with everything from intimate family photos and video to interviews with her children and granddaughter. But we begin with her 1993 confirmation hearing, where she first presented herself to the nation, announcing: “I am a Brooklynite, born and bred, a first-

generation American on my father ’s side, barely second-generation on my mother’s.” We then go back to examine her roots. Education was a huge priority in Ginsburg’s family; it was where she had her early successes, and a value she obviously passed on to her own children. (“Do your homework,” her daughter says when asked what her mother used to tell her. “Don’t disappoint us.”) We learn that the young Ruth Bader was quiet, polite, determined. “She didn’t do small talk,” says a friend. Ruth Bader excelled at Cornell University, where she would meet the love of her life, Marty Ginsburg. The film provides ample proof that this was a truly unusual partnership, based on love and mutual respect as well as Marty’s willingness to give his wife’s career precedence over his. “He was the first boy I ever knew who cared that I had a brain,” Ginsburg says in the film.

Ginsburg went on to Harvard Law School, where she was one of nine women in a class of over 500. Even then, the dean asked the women “why they took a seat that could have gone to a man.” She made Law Review her second year, an accomplishment all the more incredible because she was simultaneously doing her own work, taking care of her baby in the afternoons, and doing her husband’s law school work for him at night because he was suffering from cancer. She finished her studies at Columbia, and found that despite her accomplishments, no law firm would hire her. Cohen and West do a deft job of reminding us just what the situation was like for women in the early ‘60s, when Ginsburg was starting out. And then they show us how slowly, job by job and case by case, Ginsburg went about her life’s work fighting gender discrimination — “like knitting a sweater,” a friend explains.

Tuning in ‘70s rockers coming to St. Charles

Back by popular demand, Rock Of The ’70s returns with an all-new line-up! It promises to be an evening of St. Louis classics as April Wine, The Babys, Savoy Brown, and the Pat Travers Band share the stage for one night only. Don’t miss what promises to be an amazing night of rock-nroll – Friday, October 5 at the Family Arena in St. Charles. April Wine is a Canadian rock band formed in 1969. According to the band, they chose the name ‘April Wine’ simply because members thought the two words sounded good together. The band went on to release more than twenty albums and record St. Louis favorites such as “I Like To Rock.” “Sign Of The Gypsy Queen,” “Roller,” and “Just Between You And Me.” April Wine has forged a live performance reputation which still sees them drawing devoted crowds across Canada and around the world more than forty years after taking their first steps into the hard rock spotlight. Born in 1976, The Babys took on the classic rock world head first with a full stage musical experience, giving rise to what quickly came to be known as their ‘signature sound’. Billboard chartclimbers like “Every Time I Think of You”, “Midnight Rendezvous” and “Isn’t It Time” helped to launch them into worldwide recognition while also helping to carve out their permanent place in music history. After a successful run from 1976-1981, THE BABYS disbanded, but are thrilled to be back after a three-decade absence! Co-founders Tony Brock (drums) and Wally Stocker (lead guitar) launched a nationwide talent search at the end of 2012 to find the right lead vocalist, additional guitarist, keyboardist and iconic Babettes to capture and complete the full richest of the classic sound of THE BABYS, which they found in lead vocalist/bassist John Bisaha, guitarist Joey Sykes, keyboardist Louis Middleton and The Babettes; Holly Bisaha and Elisa Chadbourne. Originally called the Savoy Brown Blues Band, this group can rightly take credit for cutting the farewell anthem of the 1960s British blues boom, in the form of a modern blues aptly titled “Train to Nowhere.” One of the earliest of British blues bands, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the 1967 UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back

to the USA invigorating the style forever. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970’s. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today. Since the critically acclaimed 1976 debut album featuring his own brand of highquality seventies guitar rock and roll, Pat Travers has gone on to deliver melodic eighties rock, a blues period throughout most of the nineties, noted performances with various power trio’s during the first few years of the new Millennium, and a full-blooded return to the trademark Pat Travers Band sound as he entered his fifth performing and recording decade. Tickets can be purchased at the Family Arena Ticket Office or online at www. metrotix.com. To charge by phone call MetroTix at 314534-1111.

Lean Beef and You We all know that beef tastes great, but did you know how good it is for you too? A 3-oz. serving of lean beef (about the size of a deck of cards) provides 10 essential nutrients, including about half your Daily Value for protein in around 150 calories! In order to be considered lean, a 3-oz. cooked serving of beef must contain less than 10 grams of total fat, 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat, and less than 95 mg of cholesterol. A telltale sign that a cut is lean is if the word “Round” or “Loin” is in the name—In fact, more than 60 percent of whole muscle beef cuts found in the display case are considered lean when cooked with visible fat trimmed. So, stop by the Goshen Butcher Shop and ask us about Lean Beef!
