Erin Bode concert rescheduled for July 8 due to flood

By Cathy Lirette Correspondent

A Eureka High School graduate is returning to the area July 8 to perform at the Pacific Opera House. The concert was originally scheduled for May 13, but was canceled due damage sustained to the Opera House in the flood. The concert is in support of the Pacific River Walk Trail, and all the proceeds will be used to purchase land and easements and for expenses of building and promoting the trail. “We (the PRWT committee members) are always looking for ways to fund the River Walk Trail project, and thought about holding a concert,” said Steve Myers, vice president of the Magi Foundation, which took on the Pacific River Walk Trail project. “I started looking online in the St. Louis Metro section and came across Erin Bode’s name, music samples and references. It took me only listening to a few songs to realize just how truly talented she is.” Myers brought up Bode’s name at the next PRWT meeting and asked if anyone

Committee raising money to elevate and restore oldest black church in Pacific is our mission to save this piece of Pacific’s history and to once again give that congregation a home to worship in.” To find out more, become a

By Cathy Lirette Correspondent

Sixteen residents and business owners within the city of Pacific have come together to form the Historic First Baptist Church of Pacific Restoration Committee. Their purpose is to raise enough money to elevate the historic church and to rebuild the front porch and handicap ramp. “We need an estimated $70,000 to accomplish that,” explained Pacific resident Bob Masson, who started the committee along with business owner Norbert Gildehaus. “We hope to raise that amount as soon as possible so the church can begin restoring the 143year old building.” The idea for the elevation came in winter 2016 as Gildehaus and Masson’s wife discussed how the small church had just got its heat turned on after the December 2015 flood almost destroyed it. The pair talked about how great it would be if the community came together to elevate the church in case there was another flood. “My wife and I couldn’t believe another flood had hit downtown Pacific and affected so many,” Masson said. “After it was over, we contacted Rev. Jimmy Perkins (pastor of Historic First Baptist Church) and his family as they were neighbors of ours when we lived in Robertsville six years ago.” The Massons learned that Rev. Perkins had been ill and was in the hospital. They also found out that neither he nor the other reverends and deacon had been in the church since the flood and that the congregation had split up for the time being and was attending other churches of family members. “This information was very disturbing, so I asked the reverend if Norbert and I could get the key to the church and check it out,” Masson said. “Upon entering, we discovered that the ceiling was bulging from water damage and that everything was covered in mold. It was so bad we could

The reverends, deacons and congregation had already been talking and believed that they might not be able undertake the effort to restore the building again, especially because there was a possibility of it being flooded in the future. “Once we heard that, Bob and I contacted Deacon Lloyd Pruitt, who headed up the rebuild last time, and asked if the church would reconsider,” Gildehaus said. “We explained that we were planning to form a committee and raise money to elevate building. We also said that we would help with the restoration in any way we could.” Pruitt relayed the message to Rev. Perkins and his son-onlaw, Rev. Shavar Ingram, who talked it over and decided once again to restore the church “We were not thinking about rebuilding again,” said Rev. Ingram, who spoke in place the pastor. “However, if people have a mind to do this, we need to go on.” Since that time, Masson, Gildehaus and Pruitt opened an account at Bank Star, started a GoFundMe site and began a Facebook page. They also

found like-minded individuals and formed the Historic First Baptist Church of Pacific Restoration Committee, which met for the first time June 10. During the meeting, members talked about the account and how it will be completely transparent to anyone who needs to see where the funds are going. They also talked about ways of getting the word out so people could begin making donations. “People can write a check at any time and deposit it into the account at Bank Star,” said Masson. “Or they can make a cash donation via the GoFundMe site. If they need help, we are available to walk them through it.” In addition, the committee talked about providing labor to strip the inside of the building and about providing dumpsters (both of which have already happened). They also discussed looking into any city requirements and permits needed to do all the work. Masson also talked to FEMA about possible grant money (which staff is looking into) and several area fundraisers are already being discussed. “There are a number of prominent people on this committee who are helping to accomplish this feat and to get the word out,” Masson said. “It

New Southern Spring Farms Polo Club hosts social matches By Julie Brown Patton Correspondent

Galloping teams of 1,000-pound polo ponies and riders competed at an exciting, first-ever “Flat Out Fridays” social match at the newly opened Southern Spring Farms Polo Club in Eureka on June 9. A series of these Friday evening matches are underway through the month, with the last one to be held June 30. “Our goal was to bring polo to the community in a way that makes it accessible to everyone,” said Justin Baisch, owner of the Southern Spring Farms Polo Club and the Mid America Logistics Polo Team. “The grass has been meticulously tended, and has the perfect stance for our first full season.” The season opener was between teams Kräftig/Little Creek Ranch from Troy, Mo., and Mid America Logistics, with the 11-8 win going to Little Creek. The other matches include teams and players from various parts of the world. Baisch said his favorite part of polo is the horses. “Building a relationship with not one, but a string of horses is wonderful,” he said. “I’m constantly looking to

develop my string through improving the ones I have or finding new horses.” He said he’s been fortunate to locate horses that weren’t already “working for other players.” The June 9 social match was the second polo event ever attended by Joyce and Jerry Duncan, of Pacific. “We had fun at the first polo match we went to, and thought we’d check out this one,” said Joyce, who quickly added they got on their cell phones to find polo rules so they could better understand the sport. She said it was interesting to learn about which goal posts polo teams shoot at, because she first thought it was like soccer in that each team had a particular goal they had to use. Jerry said it’s surprising how fast polo horses run. Indeed, the average speed of a polo pony is 35-40 mph. The Duncans’ granddaughter is now taking horse-riding lessons, and Joyce helps care for a friend’s horses, so she said seeing horses in the polo capacity was a nice, new dimension for those who love being around these magnificent creatures.

Each polo player has a mallet, which has a bamboo cane and a hard wood head. One female, Jasmine Gallegos, played the opening match. She’s playing polo in college as well. Polo was first played in Persia more than 7,000 years ago, and reportedly was used to train cavalry soldiers for battle. Polo gradually was adopted by the English, and introduced in the United States in the late 1800s. Polo is played professionally in 16 countries, and formerly was an Olympic sport.

Virginia Jenkins looks at the patch and certificate she received from Edward Jones.

Pacific Girl Scout honored for top cookie sales

By Katelyn Mary Skaggs Correspondent

For six weeks Pacific resident Virginia Jenkins lived and breathed Girl Scout cookies. As a result, she ended up selling 1,003 boxes of cookies and was the top seller in the area. Virginia was recently recognized for her achievement in a ceremony sponsored by Edward Jones. Virginia, 10, is part of Troop 4263 and is not new to being a top seller. Last year she sold 706 boxes. One of her biggest motivators were the prizes she anticipated receiving. “Mostly, the prizes and trying to beat my goal last year,” she said. To meet her goal, Virginia walked and sold in four different subdivisions. “Most girls only depend on their parents, but my

dad only sold so many at work so I would go door to door instead,” Virginia said. Her dad, Derek Jenkins, sold about 200 boxes at his work and as a family, the Jenkins’ themselves only ordered about 20 boxes. When cookie time begins, the family makes sure everyone knows. “We even put out a sign in our yard that lets our neighbors know it’s cookie time and they even knock on our door,” said Stephanie Jenkins, Virginia’s mom. Being her third year selling Virginia has many repeat customers who will order more and more from her every year, according to Stephanie. “There’s a few older ladies that who sit in their living room with their door open and just have the screen door [closed] just

waiting for her to show up,” Derek said. Going door to door, Virginia was able to see a lot of repeat customers and meet new ones. “I know a lot of people now,” Virginia said. Virginia said it got hard to keep selling at times but she kept going. “I am just really proud of myself,” Virginia said. “You guys [her parents] kept telling me, ‘there was no way I would make it to a thousand,’ and look what I did.” Along with the ceremony from Edward Jones, Virginia received prizes that include a jewelry box, beach towel, portfolio folder, owl stuffed animal, owl pillow, washi tape, s’more charm, lots of patches, a cup, journal, Cardinals tickets, free resident camp, and she

will be one of the first girl scouts to sleep in a new lodge at Fiddlecreek Camp. Even though it was hard, Virginia advises other girls to keep going if they want to keep selling. “Be patient and not every door is going to say yes,” Virginia said. Derek was the cookie manager not only for his daughter’s troop but another one as well. The Jenkins’ ended up with 386 cases of cookies in their living room. It took three cars to pick up and bring all the cookies to the Jenkins’ house to be sorted. They moved all their living room furniture out to make space. To get the cookies boxes inside the family created an assembly line and passed all the boxes into the living room through the window. They ordered bags

from a retail company and printed off receipts to make sure everything was correct and stayed organized. Stephanie said it took about a day to sort all the orders and it took about three weeks to deliver them. The Jenkins’ waited until they sorted all the cookies to dive in and eat their own boxes. “Being financially responsible for all those cookies and I didn’t want to start eating cookies and miss count boxes and eat more than we thought we did and owe more,” Stephanie said. or next year, Virginia is looking to best this year’s record and sell 1,111 boxes. “She has no problems talking to people and I think that is the kind of confidence that has made her good at selling,” Stephanie said.

Eureka business says Concerts On Central ‘have lost momentum’ during 2018. He said one is being planned to be held in the park instead of on Central Street, with the infusion of several thousand bicyclists. Ward 3 Alderman Don Beckerle offered to help

By Julie Brown Patton Correspondent

Stating that crowds during Eureka’s Concerts On Central events are no larger than the size of regular Friday night groups, Renee Streberger, manager of The Wine House in Eureka, voiced at the city’s board of aldermen meeting June 20, she believed the concert events had “lost their momentum.” “We haven’t broken a sales record since 2013,” Streberger said, who suggested to board members during the meeting’s public comment period that the concerts needed to be better promoted or perhaps reinvented. “Some neighbors say they’d rather go to events in Washington, Ballwin or South City, because they’re better, fun and more interesting.” Concerts On Central have been hosted in Eureka at least since 2009. Food and beverages from local businesses are available during the live musical events, which include a different band each time. Parking on Central Avenue is closed after 4 p.m. on concert dates. Central Avenue then closes at 6 p.m. between Dreyer and West Frisco avenues. Concerts typically run from 7-10 p.m. Streberger questioned whether the purpose of closing the entire street was worth it for everyone involved. “Many people bring their own coolers on nights of concerts and stay in the streets, rather than going inside the businesses,” she said, indicating that perhaps it would be better for businesses “at the other end” of Central to be able to remain accessible to routine customers. She said it’s getting harder to motivate employees to want to work the concert nights because they have to split less-than-average tips. She also said she had been trying since last year to speak with various city representatives about the challenges of the concert events. As evidence of sparser attendance, Streberger presented photos and details of the June 16 concert at the board meeting. She pointed to images taken at 8:19 p.m.,

Correspondent After 12 years of coaching girls basketball at Pacific High School and 10 years of educating within the Meramec Valley School District, Joshua Spuhl has begun his new career at Webster Groves High School. Since late May, Spuhl has been coaching Webster Groves’ girls basketball team and will begin teaching high school physical education come midAugust. Spuhl said he wasn’t initially looking to leave PHS. A coaching peer just happened to tell him about the opening at Webster Groves and he figured he’d apply. One month later he received notice Webster Groves School District wanted to hire him. “Leaving Meramec Valley and especially the girls on my team was the hardest decision of my life,” he said. “But I did what I thought best for me and my family.” Spuhl has long roots in the district, as he started school here as a third-grader in 1993 when his parents moved to Pacific. Ten years later, he graduated from PHS and began attending

Central Methodist University. “I attended Central Methodist to get my teaching degree in Elementary Education,” Spuhl said. “During that time, I helped coached the women’s basketball team at PHS.” After graduating from college in 2007, Spuhl began working in the district as the computer teacher at Meramec Valley Middle School. He spent three years there and then taught third and fourth grade at Truman Elementary over the next three years. His last four years with the district were spent teaching Physical Education to kindergarteners through fifth graders at Truman and 9th graders at PHS. “I have come to know a lot of children over the last 10 years and seen them grow up to become fine young adults,” Spuhl said. “I have also had the pleasure of coaching a number of talented young women and watched them succeed in college and beyond.” During his 12 years of coaching, Spuhl spent eight seasons as head coach, two seasons as junior varsity coach and two seasons as freshman

coach. As head coach, he led the girls to 135 wins and 81 losses, helped them earn the first district title in PHS girls basketball history in 2012 and brought the girls to eight tournament championships. Spuhl also created a little league, which he is also planning to do at Webster Groves. “I have a lot of objectives to accomplish while head coach here,” Spuhl said. “The top ones are making the Women’s Basketball team a true powerhouse, year-round, and helping my girls succeed in college. Hopefully, I can fulfill everyone’s expectations and do the best leading the women to several victories during my time at Webster.” In addition to years of knowledge and expertise, Spuhl also brought assistant coach Marcus Black with him to Webster Groves. The pair has been coaching together since they were 18 in college. Due to the teams being in different classes and on different schedules, PHS and WGHS are not scheduled to play against each other any time in the near future.

Pacific Care Center dog brings comfort and joy to residents By Cathy Lirette

Correspondent Studies have shown that spending just a few minutes with a dog can make a person feel calm, stress free and even happy. That’s the main reason the Pacific Care Center “employs” Brinkley; a 7 ½ year old Golden Retriever who spends five days a week at the nursing facility. “Brinkley’s job is basically to go around to our residents and let them pet, kiss and even snuggle with him,” said Sheryl Woolf, assistant director of nursing and caretaker of Brinkley. “It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it.” As payment for a hard day’s work, Brinkley receives free food and board with Woolf, several treats throughout the day, and a lot of love from the residents at the center. Brinkley came to Pacific Care Center 6 ½ years ago after a year of training to be a support dog. He was purchased by center administrator Gretchen HoaglinRoberts, who also took training classes with the beloved pooch. Once at the facility, he was

Brinkley lies with one of the residents at the Pacific Care Center. turned over to Woolf, who has been his main caretaker since. “I cater to his every need, but it’s the residents who truly spoil Brinkley,” she said. “There is barely a moment when he is not being petted.” In addition to his main job, Brinkley also fetches items (such as pill bottles) that residents drop and he gets the residents to exercise. “Some of our capable occupants like to walk the halls with Brinkley,” Woolf said. “His presence encourages them to get up and move around, which is a great thing.” Brinkley is also there when residents are feeling ill. He will

either lay on the floor in their room or climb up in their bed and snuggle with them. “I believe that Brinkley can sense when someone is ill or maybe a bit depressed,” Woolf said. “He will go to them and spend a lot of time near them, just so that the residents feel a bit better.” Most of the 100 residents of the Pacific Care Center are full time or in assisted living. A few are in short-term rehab, but all thoroughly enjoy the time they have with Brinkley. “There isn’t anyone that he hasn’t liked,” Woolf said. “He is a non-discriminant lover and will be with us as long as he can.”

Pacific’s Relay for Life raises $18,000 By Cathy Lirette Correspondent

An estimated 200 men, women and children amassed on the front parking lot of Pacific High School June 16 for Pacific’s Relay for Life fundraising event. Starting at 6 p.m. survivors, caretakers, teams and visitors gathered on bleachers to listen to opening comments made by event organizers Stephanie and Julie Titter, Debby Haley and Meredith Menley. After Titter welcomed the crowd and explained the purpose behind the Relay, cancer survivor Stephanie Smiley shared her story. She explained that in April 2009 she had a sinus infection that led the doctor to notice she had an enlarged thyroid. After testing, it was discovered that Smiley had two types of thyroid cancer, which the doctors wanted to remove immediately. With a month, she had the surgery and her thyroid,

Participants were able to purchase drinks, treats and play fun games at the tents.

and therefore the cancer, was removed successfully without the need for radiation or chemotherapy. “What I felt during that time was gratitude,” she said during her speech. “Gratitude for the doctor who discovered my enlarged thyroid, the surgeons who removed it, researchers for looking for ways to end this disease, scientists for coming up with medicines to help me during my first year without my thyroid, and

my family and friends who stood by me during all of madness.” Smiley then thanked all the teams and caring companies who helped raise funds for this event. After some inspirational words by Haley, Smiley called all the survivors up for the first lap. Halfway around, the men and women were met by their caregivers who finished the lap with them. Upon completion of that lap, the survivors and

caregivers went into the high school cafeteria to enjoy a catered meal by Young’s Restaurant in Valley Park. Outside, the team members and visitors began walking around the outskirts of the front parking lot and continued to do so for the next six hours. As they did, they stopped off at the tents situated along to outside to purchase drinks, treats and play fun games. This year’s theme was Stepping Up Our Game, which meant several

tents were decorated as a game such as Candy Land, Uno, Life, Twister and Sorry. Another item which participants could purchase was luminary bags. Each person who purchased a bag was able to personalize it by writing a message in honor of a survivor or person who lost their battle to cancer. At 9 p.m., the bags were lined up around the parking lot and lit up to make a beautiful, soft glow. Several songs were played during this time in honor and remembrance of all those fighting against cancer. The six-hour event helped raise an estimated $18,000 for the American Cancer Society, with more coming in each week. This money will be used for cancer research, patient support, prevention, information and education, detection and treatment, fundraising expenses and management and general expenses. Those who missed the relay can still donate by visiting

Tim Jones new host on 97.1 FM By Katelyn Mary Skaggs Correspondent

Radio listeners will be hearing a new but familiar voice Sunday night from 7-9 p.m. on FM News Talk 97.1. Eureka local and former Missouri Speaker of the House Tim Jones is hosting his own show on 97.1 called The Tim Jones Show. “The show is generally going to be live,” Jones said. “That’s the goal.” Jones is not new to radio. He made his first appearance on 97.1 about four years ago and since then has filled in for other host’s shows. “The Tim Jones Show is now my own product and I am very excited about that,” Jones said. At first Jones was skeptical about the Sunday night spot, however, he learned the spot is well listened to due to Mark Cox having the spot for six years before. “He built an audience up,” Jones said. Jones said his show is like other shows hosted on 97.1. “It’s a center right-leaning conservative talk radio show,” Jones said. “We cover international and national politics just like all the other shows because that’s what people want to hear. They want to hear what’s going on in the world. What has President Trump done today?

What have the crazy people in Congress done today?” Jones is used to filling in as a host for four-hour shows, so hosting a two hour show is no problem. “Two hours goes very quickly,” he said. One thing Jones is bringing to his show is his experience as speaker of the house. “I know that world, I’ve served in that world,” he said. “I’ve actually written and passed legislation, so I think the unique thing I bring is I can talk to people about what goes on the inside, but I try not to do political speech.” Jones is no longer an elected government official but he still has an interest in what is going on in government. “I am not in government right now but I’m very much in politics,” he said. “I’m just playing a different part in politics.” People started asking Jones about hosting his own show four years ago when he first was filling in for other hosts. Then Jeff Allen, program director at 97.1, asked him to host his own show. Jones said there is a lot that happens during a radio show. “It’s not just someone talking into a microphone, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make the

magic,” he said. After being in elected government for 15 years, Jones is now director of political communications at First Rule, a media network. He is also chairman for Missouri’s Club for Growth and policy fellow at Lindenwood’s Hammond Institute, a free-market think tank. “So, I am very busy,” Jones said. “Keeps me running.” Jones show will be available on podcast and YouTube for anyone who wants to listen in.
