letter

from the

EDITOR THIS SPRING, YOU MAY HAVE BEEN TEMPTED TO ORDER PACKETS of seeds from all over the world to see what you can persuade to grow in your Midwestern garden. Although experimenting with foreign greenery and flowers can be enticing, it’s also important to foster plants that are native to this region. In this week’s LN, the St. Louis Audubon Society encourages area residents to look into its Bring Conservation Home program, which provides at-home advice for those who want to cultivate native plants in their landscaping. Learn how you can encourage butterflies to flock to your backyard in Connie Mitchell’s Abode feature, starting on p. 30. While we’re on the topic of locally grown, check out this week’s fashion feature in our Style section. This month, thanks to writer Katie Yeadon and staff photographer Sarah Conroy, we’re showcasing pieces from the Saint Louis Fashion Fund’s current fashion lab residents, with one of its graduates. From a timeless handbag from Korédé to a Paulie Gibson trench coat, these designers are making names for themselves and St. Louis as a fashion-forward city. Learn more starting on p. 44. All the best,

hen you survey your home, ideas for improvement race through your head. You are ready for an update, but where to begin? Dana King understands. Next Project Studio – a local design-build remodeling firm now know by the name of its owner and lead designer, Dana King – promises the highest standard of service for innovative design when it comes to your home projects. The recent name change reflects King’s commitment in providing a personal touch to every project and emphasizes her willingness to stand behind the company’s promises to execute, in a timely manner, a design that reflects each client. “We specialize in busy people who wonder how to get their projects off the ground,” King notes. “Clients value communication, so we use a mobile app to share project updates that keep them informed and linked to our whole team. Homeowners can vacation and stay up-to-date.” Dana King became the contractor King wanted to see in her own home: “I felt St. Louis needed to have a one-stop shop that keeps the designer involved from concept to completion. Too often, designers are marginalized in the build process to the detriment of the project.” Her diverse knowledge base stems from interior design, where she developed a sensitivity to site lines, or how a room looks when viewed from another space. Consider what you see as you sit in your living room and peer into the kitchen. Do you see dirty dishes and a bulky refrigerator? Or does the design discreetly obscure awkward spaces and life’s messes, instead celebrating the home’s distinctive style? “We are tapped into St. Louis talent,” King claims. “Starting with our team, our designers not only do great design but have a deep background in construction. Renna Barnes was a residential contractor, who had owned her own firm, and Meg Blaies is an architectural designer. Experience and

training make them sensitive to what is possible to produce, which our production team can then execute well. And our carpenters not only swing a hammer – they really care about the outcome of each project and have an eye for aesthetics.” The design-build team hand-picks architects and craftspeople that are a match for the clients’ objectives. As King details, “Our most valuable deliverable is our ability to pull the right team together to fit the needs of the project.” “We welcome challenges,” she adds. “Everyone feels they have awkward spaces. Some homeowners even contemplate moving because of such spaces. This gives us an opportunity to create a unique design that looks and feels intentional, so that people can fall in love with their home.” This ambition is why Dana King has been awarded Angie’s List Super Service award, in addition to local and national recognition on Houzz, and how the company has stayed in the top 5 percent of recommended service providers in remodeling for the past eight years on the online home services directory. As members of trade associations, including the local chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry and Home Builders Association of St. Louis & Eastern Missouri, Dana King has access to valuable resources and tools, which ensure the company adheres to best practices in the industry. “Our designers are trained in universal design, restorative design and SMART home technology, which inspires solutions that make living in your home better,” King explains. “What goes along with this holistic approach is our belief that form follows life.” The woman-owned company stays true to its core value of “finding a way,” details King, adding: “We are relentlessly positive about the potential of every home. Remodeling is an art and a science. We [make] designs that help people to live better and to love their homes. Everyone is deserving of that.” Call King and her company to discover what they can do to revitalize your dwelling and make it a place you will never want to leave.

Friends of the Missouri Governor’s Mansion

ROYAL TEA

A

Photos and story by Bryan Schraier

round 40 well-dressed ladies recently gathered at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis in Clayton to enjoy a royal tea benefiting Friends of the Missouri Governor’s Mansion. The timing of the tea seemed fitting; soon, the mansion, which welcomes nearly 60,000 visitors a year, will close for a much-needed renovation, to hopefully reopen in time for the winter holidays. The friends organization provides volunteer docents to lead tours of the three-story, 13-bedroom residence built in 1871.

I think the meaning for me [of the organization] is the fact that we can take the contents of the mansion, what we focus on, that preservation, and the amount of history that is contained in either a painting, a piece of furniture – it could be anywhere from the artwork to the chandeliers, to even the flooring of a rug – has so much history of who has been in those walls. … To see and … to find a little bit of time to just take back and find out you know those little stories that hopefully people can pass on for generations, and we hope to do that.

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW GALA Photos and story by Bryan Schraier

T

he 23rd annual Somewhere Over the Rainbow Gala benefiting Rainbow Village recently raised more than $300,000. Guests at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac browsed the many silent and live auction items before enjoying dinner and a program featuring the bestowal of the Pillar of the Community Award to The Productive Living Board for St. Louis County Citizens with Developmental Disabilities and the Rainbow Village Humanitarian Award to Nancy Parker Tice. The safe, affordable and well-maintained neighborhood homes that Rainbow Village provides individuals with developmental disabilities enhance both their lives and their neighborhoods.

We’re helping adults with developmental disabilities, and I have a brother with developmental disabilities, so the mission of the organization really resonates with me. I know what it’s like to have a sibling or a child living at home that would like to be in a safe and affordable environment, in a home of their own in a neighborhood, versus living at home with parents that at one point won’t be able to take care of them or in an institution or something even worse. So it’s really tangible. You can see what we do, and it’s great.

A

staple of the medical landscape in St. Louis, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation helps to launch pioneering programs for patients at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. The nonprofit organization recently played a pivotal role in introducing the first adolescents-only bariatric surgery program in Missouri. Serving ages 13 to 21, this trailblazing initiative utilizes a multidisciplinary team to address an issue that afflicts many youths into their adulthood: obesity. Tackling weight management from an early age can positively affect related health problems, such as diabetes and sometimes even depression. “Many patients have tried plenty to lose weight,” says Dr. Jose Greenspon, one of the two pediatric SLUCare surgeons in the bariatric program. “They had no success and don’t understand why. The operation almost resets their metabolism. In a week, some patients are off medications that they have been taking for years, and cholesterol [typically] goes down quickly.” Program participants undergo an extensive review to determine their best weightloss maneuver. Most often, SLUCare surgeons perform a sleeve gastrectomy to reduce the stomach to 15 percent of its original size. The surgery is considered less invasive and offers a faster recovery time than the familiar gastric bypass, although the latter procedure is recommended in rare cases. “Being a pediatric facility, we naturally take care of the patient and their family,” nurse practitioner Cierra Crowley stresses. “It’s not just patients who are going through this – it’s the whole family.” SSM Health Cardinal Glennon differs from other hospitals by offering a bariatric program that focuses only on the adolescent population to better serve this unique

age group. “Adolescents face a different social stigma,” Greenspon explains. “Many lag in emotional maturity. Before we consider a candidate for surgery, we make sure everything at home is optimal for them to succeed after [the procedure].” The program’s multidisciplinary team comprises the SLUCare surgeons alongside other medical professionals, including psychologists, dietitians and nurse practitioners. Together, they educate patients and their families on best diet practices and ways to incorporate fitness into their daily routines – all before going under the surgical knife. “We are helping families to change their lives for the better,” Crowley says. “Watching them grow and gain confidence as they take control of their lives is just amazing.” Without the impressive fundraising efforts after Before of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Before & after of program participant Foundation, this new advancement in pediatric Kiarra (Kiki) lloyd care might not exist. Contribute to the nonprofit organization, and you, too, can make a difference in the health of the St. Louis region.

LANDSCAPE

Outrageously ORANGE A

friend recently asked me for plant recommendations for her garden because her husband insists on having orange flowers. Although the vibrant floras make him happy, my friend has tired of French marigolds and wants to add new orange hues to her garden – and wow, does she have some beautiful choices! Orange tones and shades, of course, fall between red and yellow on the spectrum and may work well when combined with those primaries in a garden. Some of my old favorites – like daylilies, true lilies, butterfly weed, calendulas, cosmos, nasturtiums and gerbera daisies – fall in this color group. For some newer varieties of old friends, though, try gazania ‘Daybreak Orange,’ geranium ‘Orange Appeal,’ orange poppies ‘Prince of Orange,’ snapdragon ‘Orange Pixie’ and Thunbergia ‘Superstar Orange’ vine. Among new varieties for 2019, brighten a shady corner with a bold mass of the new Coleus ‘Sedona Sunset’ – an easy, solid, bronze-orange leaf annual. Also, this spring the Superbells series added a new variety of million bells, Calibrachoa, called ‘Tangerine Punch.’ More such introductions include Celosia ‘Fresh

Look Orange’; Heuchera ‘Peachberry Ice’; Kniphofia ‘Orange Blaze,’ ‘Backdraft’ and ‘Hot and Cold’; New Guinea Impatiens ‘Sweet Orange’; and Zinnia ‘Queeny Lime Orange.’ Other than deciding on a shade of orange, gardeners should consider where to plant new additions. For example, orange begonias are all great in shady pots and baskets. The vibrant (and shocking) Begonia boliviensis, which danced onto the horticultural scene about 10 years ago, now has some beautiful hybrids like ‘Encanto,’ ‘Bonfire’ and ‘Bossa Nova.’ Other popular orange begonias include ‘Glowing Embers,’ ‘Florencio Orange’ and ‘Chocolate Orange,’ with bronzy, dark foliage. More hanging basket plants include Fuchsia x ‘Coralle,’ with vivid orange-red, narrow, pendulous flowers, and Lantana Luscious ‘Citrus Blend,’ in vibrant shades of yellow, orange and red. All of these tender perennials may be carried over the winter in a bright, cool window. Gardeners seeking pollinator magnets need go no further than the perennial orange Agastaches, hummingbird hyssop, including ‘Mango Tango’ and ‘Kudos Mandarin.’ Such floral lovelies, of course, provide nectar for bees, moths, butterflies and hummingbirds. No shortage of edgy orange exists in Echinacea!

These coneflowers come in flamboyant cultivars like ‘Tiki Torch,’ ‘Flamethrower,’ the slightly kinky ‘Orange Passion,’ ‘Tangerine Dream,’ brilliant red-orange ‘Kismet,’ widepetaled ‘Flamenco Orange’ and, suffused with fuchsia, ‘Orange You Awesome.’ Blooming best in full sun, coneflowers also can tolerate a little shade; small birds love them for their tasty seeds. For my own garden this year, I picked up some new petchoas.. “What?” even informed readers may ask. Well, the PETunia and calibraCHOA were crossed for a colorful series of hybrids with the best qualities of both parents. From petunias, they received a strong root system with large flowers; from Calibrachoa, durability, heat tolerance and brilliant colors. They work well for baskets, for bedding and as pot plants. The lovely orange selection is called ‘Terra Cotta,’ a warm, yummy orange that would look at home in any garden.

omeowners often work hard to make their yards and gardens a sanctuary where they can enjoy the great outdoors. With the help of the St. Louis Audubon Society, it’s possible to enjoy that beautiful yard and garden while maintaining – and even enhancing – native plant and animal habitats. The organization’s Bring Conservation Home (BCH) program provides at-home advice for those who want to incorporate native plants into their landscape and restore natural habitats for birds, butterflies and animals while being good stewards of the land. “Native plants are pretty, very versatile and no more challenging than traditional gardening,” says St. Louis Audubon Society program director Mitch Leachman. “More importantly, native-plant gardening is inspirational because it creates spaces where nature thrives. Birds, bees, butterflies and a host of other wonders of creation visit those spaces, feed there, reproduce there and await discovery on a daily basis.” Since 2012, more than 1,000 homeowners and eight smallbusiness owners in the metro area have participated. More than 200 earned special certification and yard-sign recognition for their conservation efforts, and more than 500 acres of wildlife habitat may be under development. In addition to learning about and planting native plants, participants work to conserve water and protect water quality, reduce pesticide use and remove nonnative invasive plants. Audubon Society members and residents of 10 partner communities pay a $25 fee. Others pay $50, which includes an Audubon Society membership. Program funding also comes from grants, sponsorships, general revenue and a cooperative agreement with the Missouri Department of Conservation. The first step is to complete an online request form on the organization’s website, and the Audubon Society staff then schedules a two-hour consultation. Many of the 20-plus volunteer habitat advisors are Master Gardeners or Master Naturalists through the University of Missouri Extension, or members of Wild Ones, a regional garden club for native plant enthusiasts, Leachman says. Habitat advisors also undergo BCH program training. Advisors tour the property with the owner and discuss current conditions, as well as goals for improvement, he says, adding: “[The Missouri Prairie Foundation’s native-plant education program,] Grow Native!’s top 10 native plant lists are very helpful and cover a wide array of circumstances and landowner goals. Of course, the challenge is not in having a list of plants but in knowing which plants on that list will work in your particular situation. And that’s the primary value of our service – helping landowners figure out which plants are best for their spaces and their goals.” Sometimes nonnative invasive plant species are targeted for removal. Bush honeysuckle is the most common of these garden interlopers. English ivy, burning bush and Bradford pear trees are others commonly planted for their ornamental value but aren’t native to the Midwest. Leachman notes, however, that homeowners who are attached to these species are not forced to remove them. “We simply provide information about why a plant is on our nonnative invasive plant list,” he says. “We’re not pushy. We try to provide inspiration to improve landscapes to better support birds and other wildlife. We hope to be educational.” In addition to focusing on plants, advisors provide information about other conservation tactics, such as creating rain gardens. “Most landscapes have the potential for using native plants in channels or basins that direct or temporarily hold rainwater,” Leachman says. “This retains the water onsite while it’s taken up by the plants, evaporates and infiltrates into the soil through the channels created by the plant roots. This is much better for the community, while providing another opportunity for an inspirational landscape feature.” Nicholas Ayling of Ladue received BCH certification after seeking help in taming his acre of land, which es a p includes portion of Deer Creek. “When I bought the house in 2010, there were a lot of trees just covered d in iv ivy and honeysuckle,” he says. Now, roughly four years after his initial consultation, Ayling ling h has cleared the honeysuckle and removed some of the trees. In their place, he’s growing doggwood trees, spicebush and winterberry. Native wildflowers also bloom, attracting butterflies. “I’ve definitely seen more birds and wildlife,” he says. “And the journey of planting and then seeing things grow, and learning about the interactions between plants and birds and animals, has been so interesting. Getting your hands dirty – especially if you’re doing office work all day – is a great release. I feel much more observant and in touch with nature now.” That’s exactly the kind of epiphany Leachman wants participants to enjoy. “The longer we do this, the more we understand the value in helping people see alternative approaches tto their landscapes,” he says. “It’s better than Netflix, virtual reality or the water park – and all by b your own hands and the hands of your friends or family. It doesn’t get any better than that!” t!” os ot Ph

Kwofe

COLEMAN

s The Muny prepares to raise the curtain on its second century, there’s a new face emerging as one of the key players who will take it through its 101st season and beyond. His name is Kwofe Coleman. Over the past few summers, Coleman has stood next to Muny chief Denny Reagan in his customary spot near stage left, greeting patrons before each show. It was pretty obvious he was becoming Reagan’s right-hand man, but now it’s official: This will be Coleman’s first season as the theater’s new managing director. Just like Reagan, Coleman started at the bottom of the ranks and worked his way up. At 16, he got his first job as an usher and spent his summers handing out playbills and pushing wheelchairs. Even in the early days, Coleman showed potential. “He always understood the culture and the tradition and what The Muny meant to St. Louisans,” Reagan says. “He has all the tools.” In speaking with Coleman, it’s clear that he is someone special. His story began as that of a first-generation American, with parents who immigrated to the U.S. from the African nation of Ghana in the mid-1970s. In search of a new life in America, the couple settled here and started a family in the north St. Louis County suburb of Bellefontaine Neighbors. They had two girls and then a boy. Determined to provide their children with the best education possible, Coleman’s father worked side jobs to supplement his salary (he had received a degree in architecture in Ghana), while his mother worked as a seamstress. The girls went to Cor Jesu Academy; their brother, to St. Louis University High. “My feeling of gratitude for my parents is immeasurable,” Coleman says. “I realize what a difficult choice it was to leave Africa and come here and then send all three of their kids to private schools.” Coleman says his parents made a deal with them – if the kids succeeded in school, their parents would do everything they could to give the kids opportunities. Both sides lived up to the bargain. Coleman’s older sister enrolled at Harvard University when she was just 16, his other sister went to Duke University, and they both finished medical school and are doctors today. Coleman himself earned a degree in English from prestigious Emory University in Atlanta. It’s an understatement to call the Coleman children brilliant. Coleman intended to become a lawyer, but something happened on the way to law school: He found his calling back at The Muny. Reagan offered him an opportunity in theater management, and Coleman took it. “He was Mr. Reagan, he was the boss,” Coleman says. “When you’re a kid, you think the person at the top is supposed to be unapproachable, but he made every single person feel like they were an equal part of the institution. Those are the same things I’ve tried to embody as a leader here.” Although Reagan tells me he has no immediate plans to retire, he says he wouldn’t be surprised if someday Coleman is the person who succeeds him. Coleman, overwhelmed by even the thought of the possibility, is honored to be the son of African immigrants, now in a position to help mold the future of one of our area’s most beloved traditions. “The fact is not lost on me that I’m in a position of leadership as an AfricanAmerican man, and that’s somewhere between rare and never,” Coleman says. “I have a platform, so in that sense, I do feel a certain responsibility to move an entire community forward, regardless of race – and to say to others who look like me: ‘You can achieve anything you want. There is no limitation to your success!’”

The fact is not lost on me that I’m in a position of leadership as an African-American man, and that’s somewhere between rare and never. – KWOFE COLEMAN The Muny is in the middle of a $100 million fundraising campaign – half of which is being spent on a massive renovation project. Coleman takes me backstage for a quick peek at the construction. The site is filled with hard-hat workers, from almost every trade in town, while a giant crane is setting parts of the new stage in place. It seems impossible, but Coleman confidently says it will be ready in time for opening night, and he promises the changes over the next two seasons will be spectacular. In June, when Guys and Dolls opens and the new stage comes to life, Coleman will be standing in the wings, bearing witness, along with thousands of other area residents, to another generation of “Muny magic” and the start of the next 100 years.

Hyken’s HOMEWORK Party Hardiness

I want an advisor whose favorite question is

what’s next?

By Dr. Russell Hyken

I

t is a festive time of year for teens. Prom season is coming to an end, graduation celebrations are around the corner, and summer is almost here (at least “unofficially”). With seasonal excitement in the air, don’t be surprised if your son or daughter asks to host a party. As a parent, the thought of having a house party creates a tremendous amount of anxiety: I worry about underage drinking, gate-crashers and house-wreckers. As a professional, however, I understand that teen gatherings are an important part of adolescent social life and a developmentally appropriate way to improve communication skills and bond with friends. Having a party should be a family decision. If you are allowing your high schooler to invite a large number of his or her friends into your home, be prepared to embrace the process and, most important, to communicate expectations. Start by having a conversation. A well-planned party can ensure enjoyment (and safety) is had by all. Establish the guest list, and limit the number of partygoers to about 10 kids per adult. Always have more supervision than you need, and let your teen know that you will ask other parents to be present should the guest list grow beyond a manageable number. This discussion should also include party guidelines and behavioral expectations. Clearly defined boundaries set the tone for a problem-free evening; establish rules related to alcohol and tobacco, and also explain how you will handle difficult situations, such as calling parents if someone behaves badly. Identify offlimit areas and which restrooms are acceptable for kids to use. Next, let your teenager know that you are emailing the parents of each of his or her guests, to confirm their child’s invite and to further ensure the evening will be a happy event for all. When my son was invited to a party recently, I received a thoughtful note from the hosting mother, who outlined expectations in a respectful way, comforting myself and my wife that our son and his friends would be safe. In this email, the considerate parent asked kids to Uber safely, to show one another mutual respect, and to say hello on entering and goodbye on leaving. When I phoned to express my appreciation, the mother commented that kids are more likely to respect your home if they know who you are. She’s right! And the party was a success. Last, I encourage all families to host an alcohol-free event. Some adults believe that allowing liquor in their home is a way to keep our children out of harm’s way – impaired teens are never safe from potential trouble! And as the adult hosts, mom and dad are legally liable should anything go wrong (including what happens after the party). Planning a party with your child can actually be fun as you share ideas and create the menu. Be present at the big event, but don’t hover over your child’s guests. Keep lines of communication open, keep all partygoers safe and relax – the festivities will fly by, and be sure to enjoy this exhilarating season of change and excitement with your teen!

Be present at the big event, but don’t hover over your child’s guests.

You are constantly trying to see beyond the horizon. You want advisors whose vision reaches beyond the end of the spreadsheet. We believe leaders deserve more than the best tax, audit, and accounting advice. We believe it’s our job to look forward with you.

The Makers Program empowers black and Latino artisans to build their own businesses.

56   May 17, 2019 | LadueNews.com

he Makers Program is shaping local black and Latino creators into entrepreneurs. From the mind of Mahnal jewelry designer and founder Shayba Muhammad, The Makers Program arms metro area black and Latino creatives with the practical tools and professional guidance to sustain their own scalable, product-based businesses. Muhammad officially launched The Makers Program with the help of the Arts and Education (A&E) Council of St. Louis and the PNC Foundation, when they named her one of their 2018 stARTup Creative Competition winners who received $10,000 and workspace at A&E’s Centene Center for the Arts. For years, Muhammad had a dream to share her love of art while uplifting black and Latino artisans in a way that would benefit the local economy. “Winning the competition was the catalyst that brought that dream to reality,” she says. To kick off its first 12-week session earlier this year, The Makers Program accepted applications from black and Latino creators – women and men – and selected its inaugural spring 2019 cohort of five artists. Leading organizations and local industry professionals advised the artisans during three-hour workshops covering fundamental business topics including branding, marketing, legal, wholesale and pricing, display, manufacturing, finances, raising capital and networking. “The goal is to keep it small so the artists can get as much individual, personalized feedback as they possibly can and extract information as it makes sense for their individual business,” says Muhammad, who studied design at the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago and worked as a visual merchandiser focusing on jewelry before launching her own modern brass jewelry brand, Mahnal, in 2016. The spring 2019 cohort included Arica Davis of Ari-ganics homemade organic body scrubs and hand-poured eco-luxe candles, Amy Slaughter of Aims Moon Paperie luxury stationery, Brittanie Anderson of Maison Kitoko luxury accessories, Katherine Brown of Ikot Iban Ankara (African print) scarves and headbands, and Ummekulsoom Shekhani of Two Baby Bears & Co. patent-pending baby swaddles. “[Anderson] said [The Makers Program] was like getting an MBA in an accelerated program because of all the information she learned,” Muhammad says. “The consensus among the makers is that they really feel like they learned so much – because you don’t know what you don’t know for running a business, and The Makers Program is a stepby-step process of the rudimentary skills they need to build a sustainable business.” Davis, who was inspired by her own experience with eczema to create Ari-ganics and provide a collection of organic body scrubs for troublesome skin, had the

ingenuity to create a niche product but needed an expansion of industry information to grow in the future. She says The Makers Program expanded her knowledge of business tax, accounting, bookkeeping and brand identity, as well as taught her how to wholesale and price products for retail partnerships and register a limited liability company. “I’ve also learned how to cultivate organic business connections that are built to last,” she says. The program’s first session culminated April 7 at A&E’s Centene Center for the Arts with a Makers Mart, a pop-up shop where the artisans introduced their businesses and sold their products to the community. About 100 attendees supported the event, which also included a ceremony where each artist was presented with The Makers Program certificate of completion. “All of the makers made sales,” Muhammad says. “It showed it’s possible to have a creative business in St. Louis – the market is here, and people are interested.” The Makers Mart was the perfect platform for the incubator artists to show the community what they learned, Davis says. “I used the Makers Mart as a soft launch for my [new line of] eco-luxe candles, and they sold out!” she says. “It was the most incredible thing. I was also able to connect with my customers on a more intimate level and listen to their individual struggles with skin care.” Next for The Makers Program, its fall 2019 cohort will expand to a 16-week session for eight black and Latino creatives starting in August and ending with a Makers Mart pop-up shop. Applications are being accepted until July 14 through its website, themakersmart.com. Any black or Latino artist with a product-based business is welcome to apply, Muhammad says. “We also are looking for more professionals who are interested in offering their expertise in leading the workshops,” she adds. Muhammad says the program has taken on a life of its own: The first cohort of creatives celebrated many successes, from rebranding businesses to launching new ventures. “My goal was that this would impact the [artists] in a real way and give them skills they can apply and benefit from – it’s a transformative process,” she says. Entrepreneurship is experiencing a renaissance across the metro area – one that’s more inclusive than in the past, Muhammad says. “With social media, the growth of e-commerce and being able to connect online, we are seeing a resurfacing of entrepreneurship,” she says. “Our goal is for everyone to have the ability to access that through programs like The Makers Program.” The Makers Program, 3547 Olive St., Suite 214, St. Louis, 872-588-0562, themakersmart.com LadueNews.com | May 17, 2019   57 LadueNews.com | may 17, 2019

The remodeled interior sports a predominantly pink theme, from the paint on the walls to the napkins on the tables, and seats roughly 65 patrons. One side of the dining room centers on the lunchtime buffet, with a spread featuring 10 to 12 different items, including rotating options day by day. Popular items from the Spice-n-Grill menu available at the new eatery include murgh (chicken) tikka masala with boneless chicken breast cubes, creamy tomato sauce and spices; goat peshawri with goat cooked in tomatoes, onions and herbs; and one of the Khans’ foremost specialties, nihari – a stew of chicken, lamb shanks or beef shanks cooked with yogurt, spices and special gravy.

True to the restaurant’s name, each dish features its own set of spices with flavoring ingredients like red chilis, red chili powder and red chili flakes, as well as coriander, cumin, salt, pepper, turmeric and the Indian spice blend garam masala. The menu begins with appetizers, salads and condiments including kheema samosas, or white flour patties stuffed with spiced, minced lamb, and hot, spicy mixed pickles accompanied by mango chutney. Tandoorcooked dishes include a variety of kebabs – among them tender marinated lamb cubes broiled over charcoal – while the rice specialties seem endless, with delicious options such as vegetable biryani. Recent additions to the Khans’ repertoire of entrées include fish tikka masala with tilapia and a lamb karahi with fresh tomatoes and herbs. In addition to breads

such as paratha (layered whole wheat bread) and tandoor-cooked naan, Masala offers a new, unique option, sheermal, a layered soft bread made with special white flour; its hint of sweetness pairs well with many of the slow-cooked items from the menu. Guests should come hungry for the seemingly endless combinations of delicious entrées, appetizers and breads – and they shouldn’t forget to order a dessert or thick lassi drink before heading to see Death Tax from the Mustard Seed Theatre. About those desserts and drinks. The former include ras malai, or homemade cheesecake in sweet condensed milk flavored with rose water and pistachio, while the latter include mango lassi or salty lassi with cumin seeds and fennel seeds. “I’m very happy for this location,” Khan says. “This is a very nice environment with fantastic neighbors. I hope we are very successful here.”

‌Story:  Maxine is resting, not so comfortably, in a nursing home. She’s openly hostile to the staff, including Tina, the nurse who has the thankless task of monitoring Maxine’s vital signs and otherwise tending to her needs as an elderly, exasperating and cantankerous patient. Not only does Maxine test the tolerance of the staff, but also she’s wealthy. Maxine will relate having amassed a considerable fortune, but now fears her own daughter wants her dead and buried before New Year’s Day 2011, when a new federal “death tax” takes effect. That tax will take quite a chunk of the inheritance for Maxine’s daughter, a woman for whom she professes little fondness or use. Maxine even accuses Tina of conspiring with her daughter to kill her patient before the end of the year, thus saving the daughter much money. Tina vehemently denies this, but when Maxine makes a “counteroffer” to her, the nurse finds it too good to resist. After all, Tina, as a single mother trying to get her son back from her ex-husband in Haiti, lacks the resources to do much without outside financial assistance. Tina’s co-worker, Todd, seems all too willing to help her as much as possible, but Tina has brushed aside his financial aid, as well as his romantic overtures after an initial fling. Besides, Maxine’s offer seems ridiculously lucrative, and Tina won’t be swayed by Todd’s fear of reprisal for criminal activities. Tina’s not above manipulating Todd, though, to get what she wants. In that respect, she shares something in common with the invalid termagant she now has determined to keep alive. Can Tina nurse Maxine through the coming weeks until the new law takes effect? Does it even remotely interest Maxine to patch up her tumultuous relationship with her only child? Does Tina have any feelings for Todd – or does the nurse simply wish to use him to further her own means? This “death tax” makes for stormy situations. Highlights:  Mustard Seed Theatre, under the smart direction of Bess Moynihan, concludes its 201819 season with the compelling local premiere of this probing, one-act character study by Lucas Hnath. Other Info:  Hnath’s drama, which premiered at the Humana New Play Festival in Louisville, Kentucky, in 2012, abounds with dark comic moments divided among five scenes introduced by Tina from the side of the tidy set designed by Jamie Perkins. A white wall serves as backdrop to Maxine’s bed in some scenes, while others play out in Todd’s tiny office at stage right. That office features a forlorn little desk only big enough for Todd’s laptop and a tiny military figurine (provided by prop director Morgan Fisher) that amusingly accentuates Todd’s obsessivecompulsive behavior.

By Mark Bretz

Zoe Sullivan’s sound design begins and ends with a quiet composition by Bach on Maxine’s bedside table, with modern music in between. Jane Sullivan’s costumes fit the drab surroundings but are highlighted with Tina’s surprise Christmas gift for Todd, while Michael Sullivan’s mostly harsh lighting matches the gritty realities being played out onstage. Jeanitta Perkins captures the cadence of Tina’s native Haitian accent, as well as her dedication to her profession. She’s also adept at showing Tina’s unswerving commitment to bring her son to America for a better life. Finally, Perkins serves capably in the last scene as a rather empty-headed social worker. Reginald Pierre shows considerable range in two roles, first as the lonely, easygoing and romantically thwarted Todd, second as Maxine’s grandson. That grandson appears in the story’s final scene, one that comes with an abrupt departure from the plot to that point and offers a portrayal that personifies the consequences of Maxine’s venality. Kim Furlow relentlessly portrays Maxine, a nasty woman with few redeeming points even as she stares straight into the face of death. Maxine attracts little sympathy, as Furlow expertly shows why. Strong work as well comes from Kristen Strom as Maxine’s long-suffering daughter. Essentially, she appears onstage for just one starkly affecting scene, but in those moments, Strom carefully portrays a decent woman who has lived a hellish life at the whims of a malevolent mother. It’s no accident the daughter remains nameless in Hnath’s script. Death Tax ranks as a character study strong enough to overcome a startling turn by Hnath in the final scene, especially in Mustard Seed’s presentation, so smartly executed by Moynihan and her convincing cast.

Pick

By Bryan A. Hollerbach | Photos by Sarah Conroy

In a gorgeous overview of the sonic landscape here, a local music maven all but beseechs readers to (shall we say) “come together.”

B

oth figuratively and literally, Steve Pick has long loomed on the metro area’s music scene, standing 6 feet, 8 inches tall, which equates to a stack of 640 old-school LPs (long-playing record albums, for the benefit of digital natives), slightly more than 213 CD jewel boxes – or roughly 95 copies of St. Louis Sound: An Illustrated Timeline. That last constitutes the title of the signally blissful 182-page coffee-table book Pick, with Amanda E. Doyle, just released through St. Louis’ Reedy Press and impeccably designed by longtime local publishing pro Dave Brickey – himself a musician, aptly enough, who appears in a photo on Page 115. Crafting the tome, which retails for just $39.95, took 2½ years from inception to publication, Pick estimates, “but less than one year, with stops and starts, was spent on writing. Much time was spent looking for photos we could use. The delays also gave us time to add some entries, which made for a better book.” As an area music maven, Pick brings to the table – and turntable – credentials largely unmatched. Both vocationally and avocationally, music defines not merely what interests him but what infuses his existence.

64 17, 2019 | LadueNews.com 64   May may 17, 2019 | LadueNews.com

Nowadays, for instance, Pick serves music devotees’ wants and needs at Webster Groves’ storied Euclid Records, having previously worked in a similar capacity elsewhere. From 7 to 10 a.m. each Friday, for the past 18 years, he also has hosted the Americana/rock-centered program Sound Salvation on local radio oasis KDHX (88.1 FM). Otherwise, as an auditory auditor, Pick co-founded the legendary music fanzine Jet Lag almost four decades ago, and over time, he has written about sonic subjects, with considerable insight and often at some length, for the St. Louis PostDispatch and other publications. It thus should come as no surprise that St. Louis Sound will likely delight virtually anyone interested in music of all genres in the metro area. After a warm foreword by Blueberry Hill impresario Joe Edwards, the volume, in accord with its subtitle, operates as a glorious timeline, opening rather impishly with an entry involving the autochthonic Mississippian culture circa A.D. 1000 and closing with a 2017 entry on the Belleville-based bluegrass quintet Old Salt Union. Between those two entries, St. Louis Sound showcases in words and pictures alike a breathtaking parade of performers and venues, specific performances and


industry retailers, in a stupendous display of jukebox eros. Pick seeks not only to praise the auditory bounty of an area that has made its mark on the musical map in manifold ways but also to preach, in a politely secular way, about the glories it has gifted through the decades with genres ranging from ragtime to rap. By way of example, St. Louis Sound hails such continuing landmarks as the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, The Sheldon Concert Hall & Art Galleries and The Muny, in entries dated on the timeline, respectively, 1880, 1912 and 1917, down through the National Blues Museum (2016). St. Louis Sound also spotlights giants such as Scott Joplin (1904), Miles Davis (1944) and, of course, Chuck Berry (1955). Here, too, appears coverage of both the Beatles’ waterlogged performance at “old” Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis, a mere five days before the Fab Four stopped touring, (1966) and über-fan “Beatle Bob” Matonis (1981). Edwards’ own Fats Domino-ed University City landmark enjoys a star turn (1972), as does radio rock ’n’ roll powerhouse KSHE (94.7 FM). Along the way, St. Louis Sound covers everything from triumph – say, Fontella Bass, with her anthem for the ages, “Rescue Me” (1965) – to tragedy – the freakish 2013 death of the polymathic Bob Reuter (1978). Basically, the volume chimes like a particularly exquisite guitar progression from the Love Experts (1988) and drops as powerfully as a previously unreleased Country Grammar track from Nelly (2000). When asked to cite a “wish I’d been there” performance by a musical act prior to the time he

himself started actively and passionately contemplating and covering the local music scene, Pick pauses thoughtfully. “I think I’m gonna say Chuck Berry’s first gig with Johnnie Johnson, just to see what that was like – what with the future coming into existence and all,” he says. Pick responds with equal thoughtfulness when asked which local single performer or band he wishes he could have seen and heard in person: “I have many answers, but I’m gonna say Jimmy Blanton playing with the Duke Ellington Orchestra in 1940. That must have been an astounding thing to experience, the instant revolution of rhythm in jazz.” Given Pick’s integral insights into the metro area’s musical yesterday and today – to appropriate the title of one of the Beatles’ 1966 albums – it seems only natural to inquire about his prognostications for the area’s musical tomorrow. “Extrapolating from current trends, I’m gonna say the future is bright for local music being great,” he says. “There are currently more extremely talented musicians working in this area than there have been at any time in my memory, and more are appearing every day. “Whether that translates into financial success for musicians – well, that’s some crystal-ball gazing I can’t work, except to say that it’s the exception to find musicians making a decent living, and it always has been.” Be that as it may, in all likelihood, whoever those musicians may be and wherever they may play, an extremely tall gentleman, at some point, will be towering somewhere nearby, pensively nodding to the beat – and perhaps mentally scoring a second edition or a sequel to St. Louis Sound.

Have Researchers Found Ways to Identify Possible Cognitive Health Issues As You Age? One Health Exam Could Keep You Mentally Sharp, Reduce Anxiety, Reduce Hospitalization, Reduce Likelihood of Death, & Save You Loads of Money Did you know that there is a chronic health condition that you are likely to face? In fact, this condition, if left untreated, has been linked to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, falling, and death. The chronic health condition, if treated, can enhance your relationships with others, empower you to live how you want to live, and is proven to help you remain independent long-term – that means the treatment helps to keep you in your current home. • In 2017, research from The American Geriatrics Society found that “the total lifetime cost of care for a person with dementia was $321,780 (2015 dollars). Families incurred 70% of the total cost burden.” • In 2013, research from The American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry found that “the excess annual adjusted healthcare costs of depression, anxiety, and comorbid depression and anxiety reach $119.8 million per 1,000,000 population of elderly, respectively.” • In 2015, research from HealthDay found that “among nearly 1,700 U.S. adults aged 70 and up, those with hearing loss were 21 percent to 39 percent more likely to die over the next several years.” That’s right - the exam is a hearing exam. If you are like me, you have been putting it off for years. Make 2019 the year you get the test completed. There are so many health reasons to complete this hearing test that you should do it right now! Because you should know that there is a right way and a wrong way to conduct a hearing exam, the following is a quick explanation of the FREE hearing exam. A hearing exam should test all three parts of your ear: the outer, middle, and inner. To test the outer ear, your specialist will use a video otoscope to check for wax buildup. They will also display this on a T.V. monitor for you to see. To test the middle ear, your specialist will check your eardrum and the three smallest bones in your body for proper function and to ensure that you are not in need of an emergency medical referral. Lastly, your specialist will check twelve different areas of your cochlea in your inner ear to measure how much and at what frequencies you may be experiencing loss. The office then provides all of the results to your primary care physician since this test is that important and should be completed annually. Call right now and book your FREE* annual hearing exam – no copays or deductibles. Call before 6/31/2019 and participate in our inventory reduction sale (mention code: LADNP0501N). You could save thousands on your healthcare. Miracle-Ear St. Louis is locally owned and operated and is part of the Miracle-Ear franchise system – a leading, national hearing aid provider.
