CONTENTS EDITOR’S NOTE

SOCIETY THERE IS A SONG BY ONE OF MY FAVORITE VOICES, ELLA FITZGERALD, called Yesterdays, which perfectly captures how many of us feel about nostalgia. Nostalgia is a complicated feeling—and, according to researchers at the University of Southampton in England, it also renders psychological benefits. Their 2012 study published in the journal, Emotion, reveals that those who engage in nostalgic reflection “report a stronger sense of belonging…describe their lives as more meaningful…and indicate higher levels of self-esteem and positive mood…” Like most, my yearning for the past goes all the way back to childhood: summers spent on the Muyco ancestral farm, my grandmother’s cooking, and the sound of my dad’s voice serenading me to sleep with Hawaiian songs. While these memories bring a smile to my face, sometimes, revisiting them comes at a price: an even deeper, more poignant longing for what once was— and never will be. But, just like the song says, Sad am I. Glad am I. For today, I’m dreaming of yesterdays.

FEATURES

20 TEST DRIVE: STUDENT CARS As the end of summer draws near, we face the inevitable: back to school. If your kids are tired of riding the school bus—or are headed to college—transportation may be one of the items on your back-to-school list.

THE WINE LIFE As fall harvest approaches, many people head out to experience classic Missouri Wine Country: rolling hills, vivid sunsets, winding rivers, fertile lands and warm people. We have wine country regions across Missouri, but some of the most well-known areas are Augusta, Ste. Genevieve and Hermann.

What are you most nostalgic about? Fred Miller “I get nostalgic about restaurants that are no longer in business: Parkmoor, Toddle House, Garavelli’s, The Tack Room at The Chase, Pratzel’s Bakery. I also remember our small neighborhood hardware store, Smith Hardware in U. City, and my favorite chewing gum, Chum Gum.”

Stanley Browne “One of my favorite memories is with my father in his wine cellars in England and Ireland, where I would help open and decant wines for guests. I learned to pour the wine over a candle to see when the sediment started, and then stop pouring at the precise moment, so as to not mix it with the wine.”

Katie Yeadon

Retired or retiring soon?

“Probably my idyllic childhood in Glendale...playing ‘kick the can’ barefoot until our parents called us in for the night, building a tree house in the neighbor’s backyard or riding our bikes to Brownies. I’m still great friends with most of those neighborhood kids, and couldn’t have asked for a better childhood experience.” Delicious

Medical Matters

been told that I have a “lazy eye.” What does this mean and can Q: I’ve anything be done about it? The term lazy eye is ambiguous and can refer to several different eye conditions. It may indicate misalignment of the eyes, known as strabismus; or abnormal visual development, known as amblyopia.

AUGUST 23, 2013 {LadueNews.com}

Patients with newly acquired strabismus tend to experience double vision, or diplopia. Those with

Eye muscle surgery is also an effective treatment. There are six extraocular muscles per eye that move the eye in different directions; strabismus surgery involves adjusting the location of attachment of these muscles to the eye. The procedure is performed as an outpatient and serious complications, such as vision loss, are rare since the surgery occurs entirely outside the eye. Because ocular misalignment carries a social stigma, strabismus surgery is covered by most insurance, regardless of the quality of vision in the eyes. In addition to visual function benefits, studies have shown that correction of strabismus improves self-image and public perception. Individuals who experience double vision and/or have strabismus should schedule an appointment to consult with a board certified ophthalmologist.

During early childhood, both eyes must be aligned and provide the brain with clear images in order to develop normal vision. When strabismus, congenital cataract, or a large difference in optical lens prescription strength between the eyes occurs in childhood, the brain may ignore the visual input from one or both eyes. This may lead to abnormal visual development called amblyopia. Depending on the cause, amblyopia may be partially or completely reversible when treatment by a pediatric ophthalmologist is initiated in early childhood. For adult patients with amblyopia, there is no effective treatment to regain vision, but routine eye care remains important. Low vision aids, such as magnifiers, may help to maximize a patient’s remaining vision.

long standing strabismus from childhood tend to subconsciously ignore the second image (called suppression), thereby avoiding diplopia. Optical prisms may be placed in glasses to trick the eyes into thinking they are aligned.

Flashback for Wishes was held at Flemings Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar in Frontenac, where the party flashed back to the decade that started it all for the local Make-A-Wish chapter. The event included ‘wish children’ of the chapters’ past and present, including Wish Kid Jon, who just received his wish to meet All-Star catcher Yadier Molina.

A ground-breaking exhibition on THOMAS JEFFERSON currently is on display at the MISSOURI HISTORY MUSEUM. Slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello: Paradox of Liberty, which attracted more than a million visitors while on display at the Smithsonian, explores one of the most difficult topics in American history and how it played out in Jefferson’s world at Monticello. The exhibit features more than 280 museum objects, works of art, documents and artifacts found through Thomas Jefferson by Rembrandt Peal, 1805 archeological excavations at Monticello, including Jefferson’s personal chess set and books. Slavery at Jefferson’s Monticello runs through March 2014, and is free and open to the public.

It was a successful summer for many St. Louis institutions, including THE MUNY, which ended its 95th season with increased sales and attendance over last year. The Muny reports that in addition to an uptick in new season ticket sales, attendance for 2013 was the highest in six years. They’re also setting records at the SAINT LOUIS ZOO, where membership hit an all-time high in July with almost 53,000 members—11 percent more than July 2012.


WORD AROUND TOWN

Speaking of the ZOO, a rare and important birth has taken place: A female okapi calf was born in mid-June, weighing 52.8 pounds. At only 1 month of age, the calf, Umeme (Swahili for ‘lightning’), has already doubled her weight. The okapi, or ‘forest giraffe,’ is one of the world’s rarest animals in captivity, with only 94 of these in 23 American zoos. In the wild, the okapi can be found in the dense rainforests of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where they are likely endangered due to both hunting and political crises in their native land. Umeme, along with her parents Manala and Jabari, can be found most days at the Zoo’s Red Rocks area.

LAUMEIER SCULPTURE PARK has publicly kicked off its capital campaign by announcing that it will begin construction on a $4-million building and public plaza, and renovate the property’s 1917 Estate House.

CHARITIES & NONPROFITS

WERE YOU THERE WHEN ... BY JULIA CHRISTENSEN

J.T. Snow, Stephanie Gebel, Jeff Fisher, Anne Harkin, Barclay Gebel

THE SNOW FOUNDATION, along with four other charities, was a recent beneficiary of St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher’s annual charitable event, the Coach Fisher and Friends Celebrity Softball Game. The game, now in its second year, helped raise proceeds for The Snow Foundation, which works to fund research and raise awareness of Wolfram syndrome, a type of diabetes.

The SALVATION ARMY held its second annual Garbage Bag Gala at The Moonrise Hotel, which featured outfits created by area designers out of trash bags, recyclables and other often-discarded items. After the 40-look fashion show, the party moved to the roof where guests enjoyed food, drinks and music. Throughout the unique event, $13,000 was raised to assist Salvation Army programs.

“Scoot up to the attic... you’re going to make me a new dress.” — Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind

T

imeless elegance meets Palm Beach attitude in the new Scarlett Collection designs, created using vintage bark fabric. The collection name is not merely a ladylike title, but a nod to fictional fashion icon Scarlett O’Hara and her famed green-curtain gown, as bark fabric is the highly-patterned cloth used to make the tropical drapery of yesteryear. “I used to do a lot of antiquing and digging through flea markets, and it was one of the things I would look for—and then I started to get this huge pile,” says Mary Strauss, whose drapery collection inspired the line. “I love the fabric—they’re tropical, exotic, happy, fun—and I always thought it would be really cute for clothes.” The collection showcases both vintage patterns and shapes in ways the modern woman can enjoy.

“We are reinterpreting some of the iconic looks of the ’40s and ’50s,” Strauss says. The original bark cloth is used on the Scarlett Collection runway items, while retail pieces are comprised of new bark cloth with print reproductions. Also behind the collection are St. Louis designers Marylyn Simpson and Heather Lampe. Strauss was introduced to the designers after working with Simpson’s grandm o t h e r— a l so n a m e d M a ryly n S i m pso n , t h e ow n e r o f R & M Designs—to design Strauss’ dress for last year’s Titanic Centennial Dinner at the Fox Theatre. “I thought, Here’s a young designer, she wants to do this, what a perfect fit, let’s talk about it! and that’s how it all started,” Strauss explains. The collection will be presented on Saturday, Sept. 28, as part of Saint Louis Fashion Week. By Julia Christensen

A Stylish Blast from the Past BY JULIA CHRISTENSEN PHOTOS BY SAR AH CROWDER SHOT ON LOCATION AT THE HISTORIC MAGIC CHEF MANSION

S

tored away in bins, at the back of racks or deep inside display cabinets are those hidden gems the most stylish of people always seem to find—that scarf no one else could pull off, those distinctive earrings, that lust-worthy bag. If it’s uniqueness you’re after, shopping at vintage, resale or consignment stores may be the missing piece of your shopping routine. “I enjoy seeing people who have used vintage styles in their own ways—that is, taking a period piece and making it their own look,” explains Jolie Mackney, owner of The Vintage Haberdashery. She says that while some shoppers truly dress the era, others introduce vintage into their personal style. The items in many resale, consignment and vintage shops may look like new, but the shopping experience is quite different. “Allow yourself enough time; because unlike going into a boutique where they have 10 of the exact same item, resale is many, many individual pieces,” says Diana Ford, the Women’s Closet Exchange director of marketing. “Give yourself more time than you would at a typical boutique or department store.” While quality and condition should be checked for all purchased items, new or used, extra attention should be given to vintage items before purchase. Mackey says the underarms, which can show signs of disintegration, always should be checked when buying older items. Stains or tears should be addressed with the store owner or clerk, who can explain what, if anything, has been done to repair or clean the item before it hit the shelves. Another thing to remember, according to 24

August 23, 2013    {LadueNews.com}

Mackey, is that a lot of clothing found in vintage stores was saved throughout the years because of its emotional importance—and many times, that means the items were worn by younger women. “You’re going to find a lot of clothes smaller—and fewer clothes larger,” Mackney explains. “Do not be discouraged if you go into a vintage shop and there’s not a big selection in your size. Come back; stock always revolves.” When it comes to price, Mackney recommends shoppers think about how much it would cost to buy the same type of item new. At retail stores specifically, Ford says you should expect to pay “anywhere from one-third to half of what it was new.” If you’re in the market to sell, Emily Elbert, owner of Byrd Designer Consignment Boutique, has a few tips. “Try to keep original receipts for big-ticket items,” she explains. “That helps a lot in determining a price for resale. Keep authenticity cards, dust bags—even shoe boxes and sunglass cases. This all aids in the marketing and reselling of the item.” Before bringing the items to the store, find out what the shop is accepting and how they are accepting it. “Typically, everything should be clean and without any stains or tears, because it needs to be something somebody would wear,” Ford explains. “The better your items look, the more money you will get for them.” She explains rarity, store inventory and demand control price. “And you must, must be finished with an item. We don’t ever want people to leave our store with supplier’s remorse.”

The selling process may be the only time buyers note the real difference between consignment and resale shops. “People interchange the terms all the time,” Elbert says of consignment and resale. “To the actual customer, there’s not a big difference; but to the store owner, it’s the very business model. The business does not own the inventory. The consigner still owns the item and is paid once it sells.” Elbert explains consignment policies vary, but often include a 90-day contracted selling period, as well as 40- to 50-percent profit to the seller should the item be purchased.“In my opinion, consignment is a very transparent way for you to sell your clothes, because the store owner will provide the consigner with a contract, so you know what each item will sell for,” Elbert says, noting that not all resale stores tell suppliers what the item’s list price will be, making it harder to tell if you’re getting the right amount. If you are offered less for an item than you wanted, Ford has this reminder: “Something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. The reason people shop resale is because they didn’t want to pay retail prices. What is it worth in your closet if you’re not wearing it?” Should an item not be accepted at all, Elbert says not to be offended; instead, visit another shop. “Try to think of it as purely transactional,” Elbert explains. “The shop owner knows what will sell in their store, so your items might not be a good fit for their customer base. It has nothing to do with what you’re bringing them.”

IT’S ALL RELATIVE

Homespun & Heartfelt

T

By Paul Brown

seven days a week to do it. Not long after, Mary met Lucianna Gladney-Ross, the heiress of the 7UP fortune and ‘the matriarch o f K i m m sw i c k ,’ who was trying to recruit yet another person to run the restaurant. “Mrs. Ross restored The Blue Owl in 1980, and it had already been through four different owners,” Mary explains. “ Eve r y ye a r, i t failed because there we re n ’t e n o u g h people coming to K immswick. But Mrs. Ross was sure that someday, Kimmswick was going to be a thriving town—just like it was when she was a child.” At that meeting, Mary promised Mrs. Ross that someday the heiress would have to stand in line to get in the doors of the restaurant. She says the elegant old woman responded by laughing out loud. In January 2012, Lucianna Gladney-Ross died. But before she passed away, she saw all her dreams realized: thousands of Blue Owl meals being served every week, and her beloved town very much alive. To keep her end of the promise, Mary and her family continue to work unimaginable hours to make it all happen. The restaurant has been featured on Oprah and the TODAY Show, as well as on Travel Channel and Japanese TV, just to name a few. And their wildly successful mail order business continues to grow. But as with many prosperous businesses, this one comes with heartache, that’s the ‘tears’ part.

“My project began when we started expanding; and I am determined it’s going to be successful, and I’m not going to give up until it is.”

Mary says she had to bake to survive after her first husband walked out on her 30 years ago. “He was my high-school sweetheart. We had been married 12 years, and had a 2-year-old and 5-year-old,” she says. “Out of the clear blue, he said, I’m going to leave.” The memories make her tear up even today. “I was so lost, I didn’t know how I was going to take care of my children and keep a roof over our heads, but God led me through this.” Mary married her husband Jerry in 2000, but says she did it only after rebuffing his early proposals. “He was raising his two sons, and I was raising my two daughters. I knew I could just not take on a blended family and a husband, as well as The Blue Owl,” she says. “I told him, You need to go out and find someone—any woman would give anything to have a husband like you. He said, I’ll wait for you. So he waited 15 years, and we have the most beautiful family: four children, five grandchildren and twins on the way.” You can hear the happiness and joy in her voice—the kind that comes from a lot of blood, sweat and tears, adds Mary. “Tears of heartache and tears of joy.”

he success behind The Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery in Kimmswick is a story of blood, sweat and tears. Walking inside the charming, homespun eatery in the historic Mississippi River town is like going to Grandma’s house for Sunday dinner, where you’ll find of the best home-cooked, country-style meals around. And you can’t leave without the famous Levee High Caramel Pecan Apple Pie (trademark-registered). But to totally appreciate what you’ve just experienced, it may help to understand the family behind the food, that’s the ‘blood’ part of this story—blood as in family. Owner Mary Hostetter started her road to incredible success some 30 years ago. She was joined full-time by her daughter, Kim Warner, in 1997. They are now grooming first-born grandson, Brett Martin, to someday possibly follow in their footsteps. When Brett was just a baby, Mary brought him into the restaurant to visit with her guests. Mary says his nickname then was ‘Precious.’ Brett is now 16. “He really believes that someday he’ll be in charge of The Blue Owl; and we believe that, too.” After earning her business degree, daughter Kim set out to build the Blue Owl name into a larger, and even more successful entity. Kim, who is now in her mid-30s, helped spearhead the neighboring Blue Owl Sweet Shoppe, along with two more Sweet Shoppes in Festus and House Springs. While her mother built the business working from her heart, Kim says she’s following Mary’s traditions but is using a lot more of her ‘head’ in the process. “My project began when we started expanding; and I am determined it’s going to be successful, and I’m not going to give up until it is.” Hard work is a common theme for this family, that’s Kim Warner where the ‘sweat’ comes in. Mary started baking Christmas cookies for craft shows and mail orders out of her Oakville home in 1983. That first Christmas, she shipped out 30,000 cookies, but had to work 21 hours a day,

TALKING POINTS

The Elevator Speech: One Floor at a Time

W

hen I’m addressing an audience about the subject of ‘elevator speeches,’ I’ll ask, By a show of hands, who—within the last year—has tweaked their elevator speech? Immediately, many hands go up. I’ll continue, In the last six months? Six weeks? Six days? As I’m speaking, you are…? If you’re like most people, your hand would be raised throughout my questioning. I struggled with mine for years. It was always a work in progress. We’ve all been there: We’re attending a networking event, social function or seminar, and the leader announces, Before we get started, let’s go around the room and introduce ourselves. Tell us who you are and what you do. Give us your elevator speech. At this point, I’m not making eye contact with the leader and hoping upon hope someone jumps up and exclaims, “I’ll go first!” Ultimately, someone starts delivering their elevator speech, and we feel like a huge weight has been lifted from our shoulders. Unfortunately, that instant of comfort usually is followed by thoughts of, Oh no! What if the person ahead of me delivers one of those ‘killer’ speeches, the kind everyone oohs and aahs over? That will be worse than being first! That frightful thought usually is followed by a quick glance to the person next to you, and guessing how well they will do when it’s their turn. Thus, the speeches begin; and they’re usually all over the place in quality and quantity. A Few Good Ones Occasionally, we hear some excellent ones that get straight to the point. The person delivering tells us: His/her name; their company’s name; the products/services they offer; and something that distinguishes them from others in the same field. Example: Hi, everyone! I’m Bob and I’m an estate planning attorney. This is all I do, and I’ve done it for more than 25 years. I’ve written a number of articles and pamphlets on the subject. You may have read some of them in local publications. Living wills, trusts, inheritance laws—I’m an expert in all of them. If you haven’t done estate planning, or want a review of the plan you have, let’s have a conversation! Bob seems to know what he’s doing: He’s established credibility—a good thing! After hearing his speech, we can make a decision if we want to know more or not. If we do, we’ll catch up with

him later.

be, that we’re better not hearing them.

The Really Quick, Short, Boring Ones These give the minimum amount of information, and nothing that grabs our attention. Example: I’m Johnny. I’m in accounting. If you need accounting work, call me. So what? You’ve told me nothing that distinguishes you, or gives me any reason to think you’re good at what you do. Why would I want to meet you later and know more?

The Cutesy Ones that Don’t Say Much These folks think they can ‘tease’ you into wanting to know more about them and their offering. Example: I’m Robin, the financial ‘plumber’ for all your financial troubles. Work with me and I’ll help you flush them out of your life! You’ve got to be kidding! What you told me is too vague. I don’t want to know more!

The Long, Long, Long Ones At the other end of Quick, Short and Boring is the individual who rambles on and on. If they offer 10 products, they’ll tell you about 15! They give several ‘case studies’ about how their product or service changed peoples’ lives. When they finally sit down, they’ve left little time for others to present within the time allotted for this exercise. You’ve experienced these, haven’t you? It’s an obnoxious elevator speech, and I can’t imagine wanting to spend more time with them! If you really were on an elevator, you’d be prying the door open or hitting the emergency button!

The Business Opportunity Ones These people are usually looking to build a down line for their multi-level marketing (MLM) business. MLM works for many people, but please, tell us very clearly what you do! Example: I’m Susie and I went from being $50,000 in debt to making $10,000 a week—and I’ll show you how to do it! One of my problems with this type is that I don’t have a clue what they are talking about. Again, if it’s a business opportunity, tell us in the elevator speech. For some in the audience, that might be a perfect fit.

The Please Sit Down! Elevator Speeches These either give far more information than needed, take more time to deliver than allowed, or are so far from what an elevator speech should

We’ll continue the elevator speech topic in next month’s column. ‘Till then, make next your presentation…NO SWEAT!

Have Your

Say

I

By Brittany Nay

magine experiencing an accident that leaves you unable to communicate last wishes for your health, your possessions or even your children. While there are a multitude of documents available to curtail the problems, many fail to consider completing them until later in life—when it may be too late. The reality is people of all ages need to have at least one of the following papers on hand: a last will, a living will or a living trust, according to local attorneys. But how do you know which is best for you? First, local experts say it is important to become educated on the differences among the forms to determine what will apply to you and your family. Online document service Legalzoom provides the following definitions: • A last will is used to distribute property to beneficiaries, detail last wishes and name guardians for children. Without this paperwork, the courts will make these important decisions for you. • A living trust also is used to transfer property to beneficiaries. However, this document typically is not subject to probate court. • A living will allows you to outline crucial health-care decisions in advance, such as whether to remain on life support. A durable power of attorney for health care also can be appointed to make important medical decisions for you in cases where you cannot. David Rubin of The Law Offices of David A. Rubin encourages individu- David Rubin als and families to seek the advice of an attorney when deciding what documents are best for them, as they denote life-changing choices, such as who will be listed in a person’s will and as guardian of their children. “A lawyer

can help them decide who the right players will be,” he says, adding that many attorneys will offer a free consultation to discuss these matters. R u b i n re c o m mends everyone— from young couples with or without children to the elderly— have a living will, a durable power of attorney for health c a r e , a d u ra b l e power of attorney for finances, and a last will. “A lot of times, people think these documents are for older people. But things can happen to anyone at any time,” Rubin cautions. He cites the 1983 case of Nancy Cruzan, a 25-year-old Missouri woman who suffered severe brain damage in a car accident. Because Cruzan did not have a living will, she remained in a vegetative state for seven years before the Missouri Department of Health ruled her parents could end her life by removing life support. To avoid this type of tragedy, Rubin explains that a living will and a durable power of attorney for health care will let medical professionals and the courts know your health-care decisions if you are unable to communicate them. And a durable power of attorney for finances can handle your money matters while you are incapacitated. Additionally, he says a last

will ensures your property is given to the desired beneficiaries and that guardians are named for any children. Martha Brown of Martha C. Brown & Associates says preparation of these documents will save money and time in court. “It’s a misnomer that if you write a will, you don’t go through probate court,” she notes. However, a last will and a durable power of attorney for health care and finances can help prevent conflicts in court, she says. Brown emphasizes that people need to consult an attorney to learn about their options and discuss their concerns. “To determine which documents are best, you need to consider your assets, family and more.”

Divorce Trends Over the Years

Paid Advertisement

St a n g e L a w F i r m , P C

No doubt, there are plenty of Missouri and Illinois residents who have heard rumors, like the divorce rate being on the rise and younger people being more likely to divorce. However, according to Forbes, these divorce rumors are greatly exaggerated. Recently, an interesting chart from eLocal.com was posted within a Forbes article. This chart pointed to six of the more interesting trends among divorcing couples in this day and age. In this article, we will focus on some of those trends. When it comes to divorce, many might think the rate is rising. However, it turns out that it is actually declining with 45 percent of marriages ending in divorce. Additionally, the rate has been steadily declining since 1981.

been an 89 percent increase in the number of 50 to 65 year olds on the dating website Match.com. According to the same eLocal.com chart, there are also five key factors that increase the chances of divorce. These factors are: not having a college education, earning within the lower income range, having a baby before marriage, getting married younger than age 25 and not having a religious affiliation. In some cases, just one of these factors is at play, while in others it is all five. In speaking of trends though, the same eLocal. com chart also shows that women are more likely than men to file for divorce. Statistically speaking, 66 percent of divorces are initiated by women.

However, what is truly interesting is that not only is the divorce rate declining, so is the marriage rate. In learning this, one would assume that fewer marriages would naturally mean fewer divorces.

In looking at the fact that more women than men file for divorce, this most likely has something to do with women wanting child custody. Some may believe that filing first gives them an advantage in the courtroom, which is not necessarily true.

Additionally, while some might like to think that it is the younger generations that are quicker to end a marriage, it turns out the divorce rate among older Americans -- those of the baby boomer age -- is actually increasing. This rising divorce rate among those between the ages of 50 to 65 may be why there has

Jeff Landers, a divorce financial strategist, said that over the years he too has noticed some trends, including that two-thirds of divorces are initiated by women. He said that among women who are financially independent and socially accepted, the rate is even higher.

More women being financially independent also ties into why the marriage rate -- and consequently divorce rate -- is on a downward trend. Back in the day, many women felt like they needed to get married for financial stability. However, now many women are educated and having their own careers and no longer needing a husband to provide for them. This in turn has led to many women choosing not to get married. In the end though, whether it is the wife that files for divorce, or the husband, both parties need legal representation.This can help with everything from property division to child custody agreements and helps to ensure a fair settlement for everyone. And while there are divorce trends and statistics, everyone’s situation is different and there is no onesize-fits-all approach to divorce. This is why it is important when going through divorce to have an attorney who can give attention to a spouse’s specific family law situation.

URINARY TRACT INFECTION

Don’t Ignore the Signs

U

R I N A RY t r a c t infections (UTIs) are largely considered a ‘female problem,’ but men also develop UTIs and the unpleasant symptoms that accompany them. “ U T I s a r e fa r l e s s common in males, and typically occur in infants and elderly men but do happen in men of all ages,” says Dr. Paul Angleton, a Mercy Clinic family physician. “They are caused by bacteria and happen more often if people are not well hydrated, if they have enlarged prostates, and are slightly more likely in men who have not been circumcised.” These risk factors may cause the urinary flow to be obstructed or reduced, allowing bacteria to remain and proliferate in the bladder or urethra instead of being flushed away t h ro u g h re g u l a r urination. Sudden onset of urinary urgency and increased frequency, burning during urination and blood in the urine are symptoms that should be assessed by a physician. D i a g n os i s of a UTI is g e n e ra l l y based on a physical exa m a n d urine tests, although additional te s ts a re sometimes required in people who DR. PAUL ANGLETON, MERCY CLINIC FAMILY PHYSICIAN have recurrent UTIs.

UTIS ARE FAR LESS COMMON IN MALES, AND TYPICALLY OCCUR IN INFANTS AND ELDERLY MEN BUT DO HAPPEN IN MEN OF ALL AGES.

AUGUST 23, 2013 {LadueNews.com}

BY CONNIE MITCHELL

Just as in women, men diagnosed with a UTI are treated with antibiotics to clear the infection. If bacteria in the male urinary tract infect the prostate, swelling and irritation can occur. This infection, known as ‘prostatitis,’ is generally treated with antibiotics, although it can recur, becoming a chronic concern that requires ongoing medical management. “Prostatitis and epididymitis (inflammation of the tube at the back of the testicle that stores and carries sperm) are the only complications specific to men, but other complications include infection spreading into the kidney or the bloodstream, which is why it is important not to delay treatment or ignore your symptoms,” Angleton says.

In addition to the simple in-office urine test, “urine is then sent for culture to identify the bacterial pathogen and checked for sensitivities to determine appropriate therapy and identify resistant organisms,” explains Dr. David Bryan, a urologist with St. Louis Urological Surgeons at St. Luke’s Hospital. “The treatment at this point is the same, regardless of sex. In men, a urinary tract infection may lead to retention of urine and require catheterization.” Drinking plenty of water and urinating when the urge arises can help prevent UTIs in both men and women. “Two keys for men are to keep well hydrated and to make sure they actually have an established relationship with a primary-care physician so they do not end up delaying treatment,” Angleton notes.

DRINKING PLENTY OF WATER AND URINATING WHEN THE URGE ARISES CAN HELP PREVENT UTI IN BOTH MEN AND WOMEN.

CARS FOR STUDENTS

Cool for School

A

BY ROBERT PASTER

S THE END OF SUMMER draws near, we face the inevitable: back to school. If your kids are tired of riding the school bus—or are headed to college— transportation may be one of the items on your back-to-school list. Most people want a student’s carthat is just the right size, and is safe, affordable and maybe even a little fun. Dodge’s new Dart ticks all those boxes. Based on a Fiat design, the Dart has been adapted to fit the American market and does so quite well. Dr. Steve Rosenberger of Woodland Dental Care recently purchased a Dart for his daughter, who’s starting college this fall. “My daughter thought the Dart was really cute, and the 39 mpg on the highway made me take a second look,” he says. “The Chrysler Uconnect touch screen controls really won us over. My daughter especially likes the turn-by-turn navigation that can be displayed in the driver’s console. I like the long list of safety features, such as blind-spot monitoring, rear backup camera, electronic stability control and active head restraints.” The Dart is stylish, probably thanks to its Italian heritage (Chrysler is now owned by Fiat). It’s also a nice size; small enough to park and maneuver easily, yet big enough on the inside to carry four adults in comfort. Available heated power leather front seats are most comfortable. A clever unique feature of the Dart is a front passenger seat with a seat bottom that folds up to reveal a small, hidden cargo area— perfect for a laptop, purse or other item you want Honda Civic

Dodge Dart

handy but sometimes out of sight. Dual automatic climate control, remote start, automatic headlamps, an 8.4-inch touch-screen display, an integrated garage-door opener and even a heated steering wheel are amenities you’d expect to find on a car costing thousands of dollars more. The gauges are actually digital, but speedometer and tach readouts look analogue, and the gauge screen can be configured to display the driver’s desired information. Radio controls on the back of the steering wheel allow you to change volume, radio station and other audio inputs without taking your hands off the wheel, a nice safety feature. Rearseat room is decent, and the 60/40 rear seat folds down to expand trunk capacity, which is pretty large for a ‘small’ car. The limited special edition I test-drove had a 1.4-liter turbo engine with a 6-speed dual dry clutch automatic transmission, good for 160 horsepower to the front wheels; and mpg of 27 city, 37 highway. A 6-speed manual transmission is a welcome option. Good brakes, adequate power and a sporty suspension make it a fun drive. According to Lawrence Wilhite, sales manager of Marty Cancila Dodge, “The Dart is economical, fun to drive and has good handling, and with 10 airbags—it’s safe.” Prices for the Dart start around $16,500 for the SE and rise to $21,500+ for the GT. Another great student vehicle is the Honda Civic. A longtime student car favorite, the Civic offers fun, economy, practicality and reliability in an attractive package at an appealing price. The Civic has been redesigned for 2013. The coupe, in particular, is a real knockout. Its sharply raked windshield and rear window give it a very sleek profile. A sport version called the Si adds a more powerful engine and sportier suspension.

Honda took some criticism over the previous version’s interior, but all the problems seem to have been addressed in the new Civic. Materials are not fancy, but nice, especially the cloth that envelops the mildly bolstered seats. Dash, door panel and other interior materials also are of good quality. Power windows and mirrors are standard. An interesting bi-level dash—with analog tach below and digital speedometer above—dominates the driver’s view. Audio and HVAC controls are simple and easy to use; but the radio display by the gauges doesn’t show what station it’s on unless you’re manually changing stations, even on scan. A standard back-up camera and radio controls on the steering wheel are really nice features in a ‘basic’ car. The only complaint is headroom in the back seat. Leg room is decent though, so kids should do fine; and the rear seat folds to expand the trunk, which is of generous size already. The standard engine in the Civic is a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder that pumps out 140 horsepower to the front wheels via a 5-speed automatic or manual transmission. Mileage is 28 city, 39 highway. McPherson struts up front and a multi-link rear suspension give the Civic a sporty ride, with good handling and brakes, though the powersteering is slightly over-boosted. Power is sufficient to be fun and safe, but not so much that a student could get in trouble with it. Michael Kingsbury of Honda of Frontenac says, “The Civic is a great student car. It’s safe, with standard features such as a back-up camera, and reliable and easy to maintain with great gas mileage.” Prices for the Civic coupe start at about $19,000; about $24,000 for a loaded model with leather. A high-mileage hybrid version also is available.

Kyle Weldon

Golf Grapevine BY WARREN MAYES

A rising star looks to be emerging in St. Louis in Kyle Weldon, while Catherine Dolan has regained her Missouri women’s state championship. Let’s take the driver out of the bag and rip through the news. Metropolitan Amateur Championship With his second consecutive victory in the 23rd annual Metropolitan Amateur Championship, Kyle Weldon is earning a reputation as one of the top young players in the area. Weldon, who will be a junior at Kansas State this fall, added his name again to the Jim Tom Blair 44

AUGUST 23, 2013 {LadueNews.com}

Trophy with his two-stroke win at Persimmon Woods Golf Club, a scenic and challenging course. Weldon, a Parkway South graduate, held off a late charge from Phil Caravia to take the title. Weldon began in the opening round with a stellar 5-under 65 to grab the lead out of the gates. He shot a 3-over 73 in the second round but still led by two shots over 2009 champion Skip Berkmeyer and Teddy Jones. In his final found, Weldon fired a 70.

“It is huge for my confidence,” Weldon says. “It is very special to know I am one of two people to win in back-to-back years.”

St. Louis District Golf Association Justin Wrozier of Old Hickory Country Club claimed the Association’s biggest title at the 94th annual Greisedieck men’s championship held at Whitmoor Country Club.


GOLF GRAPEVINE

Skip Berkmeyer

Catherine Dolan

Wrozier was the 16th seed in the match play part of the tourney. He defeated Brian Lovett of Bellerive Country Club, 2 up for the STLDGA’s main championship.

Missouri Stroke Play Skip Berkmeyer has added the Missouri Stroke Play championship, a title missing from his outstanding amateur career. Berkmeyer, of Wildwood, put together four rounds of under par golf to win the Missouri Golf Association’s 16th annual Stroke Play championship at Meadowbrook Golf Club. Adding to the title has been a goal of his. “It fulfills a lifelong goal to try to win to every state tourney once,” Berkmeyer says. “I made that goal back in 1995. This tournament wasn’t even around then. I’ve found a way to etch my name on this trophy now—it’s a treat. It’s nice to win it.” He adds, “You have to enjoy the wins because you lose a heck of a lot more than you win.”

Missouri Women’s Amateur The championship trophy for the Missouri Women’s Golf Association traded hands this year when Ballwin’s Catherine Dolan won it back. Dolan, who won the state championship in 2011, lost in a playoff last year to Ellen Port, an eight-time state champion. Dolan captured the title of the 75th MWGA Amateur Championship at Old Kinderhook Golf Resort in Camdenton by

Justin Wrozier

getting past Port this time. It came down to a photo finish with Dolan holding on to defeat Port by one stroke. Port received the Cassett Trophy as the runner-up. The Peg Ludlow Trophy for low junior player was presented to St. Louis native Brooke Cusumano for her three-day score of 232. Cusumano, who will attend SIUE-Carbondale this fall, finished in fifth place overall. Parkway South and Mizzouri alum Kelly Osborne of Ballwin took sixth place with her total of 236.

Metropolitan Open Drewt Stoltz capped off a successful stop in St. Louis by capturing the eighth Metropolitan Open and a $13,500 first-place prize check. Two-time champion Shawn Jasper of Marthasville finished in a tie for second with Chris Thompson, a Lawrence, Kan., pro, at 3-under par. The low final round was played by Country Club of St. Albans touring professional Jay Delsing, who fired a 3-under 67 to move up the leader board to a -1 total and top 5 finish in his first Metropolitan Open appearance. Low Amateur honors went to Alex Cusumano, who finished in a tie for 14th place overall at 6-over par.

Women’s Fore State It was not meant to be for Team Missouri in the

annual Fore State Women’s Championship at Twin Hills Country Club in Joplin. Catherine Dolan of Ballwin gave Missouri three total points for the week after her 5 & 3 victory over Micah Radler of Oklahoma. Mindy Coyle also won her second point, defeating Lauren Falley of Kansas 2 & 1. Kelly Osborne of Ballwin managed to bring in another half point by halving her match with Tanna Richard of Arkansas. Oklahoma racked up 6 points to finish tied with Missouri for second place. Kansas was the strongest team, scoring 7 1/2 points to earn a total of 12.5 points and the 2013 Fore State Championship title.

Tournaments The annual St. Louis chapter of the Association of United States Army St. Louis Gateway Chapter Golf Tournament will be held Sept. 9 at Bear Creek Golf Course in Wentzville. All proceeds from the four-person scramble tournament will benefit the AUSA Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships to military members and their families. The shotgun start begins at noon, with dinner to begin at 6 p.m. For more information, contact Eric Seiler III at 218-63304 or 968-2282, or visit gatewayausa.org. Well, that’s it for another busy month of local golf. Thanks for reading. After a brief stop at the 19th hole, we’ll see you again next month. {LadueNews.com} AUGUST 23, 2013

unreliable, secondhand gossip from around the world* KIM KARDASHIAN

The world waits with bated breath for celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to present their little golden goose, North, to the tabloids—er, fans. In an interview, Kim said she’s looking forward to making public appearances with the baby, but would like to see diet and exercise pay off first. Well, that’s just ridiculous. Kim is beautiful; little North, no doubt, is beautiful. I can’t imagine worrying about weight just weeks after getting home from the hospital. Plus, babies are supposed to be fat.

LINDSAY LOHAN The troubled actress is out of rehab and ready to get her career back on track. Last week, she took over hosting duties on Chelsea Lately, and she reportedly has scheduled guest appearances on some TV shows. It’s strange. When Lindsay is imploding, you can’t walk by a newsstand without seeing a picture of her in a bush or the back of a police car; but when she’s healthy and sober, there’s not a photographer in sight. Huh.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY The original show became an overnight cult sensation, so producers wisely and immediately came out with a spinoff, AHS: Asylum. Great move. If there’s anything scarier than a haunted house, it’s a haunted mental hospital. And producers didn’t stop there. Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett reportedly have signed on for the latest installment, AHS: Coven. The witchy series beat out the other spinoffs in development, AHS: Fraternity Basement and AHS: Clowns, but there’s always next season.

TAYLOR SWIFT The unlucky-at-love pop star reportedly is ready to forgive the most recent of the long list of men who have broken her heart, One Direction singer Harry Styles. After a brief but heated romance, sources close to Swift say the Red singer may finally be ready to bury the hatchet. It seems she has decided to dial down the drama. She’s taking the high road: civil, discreet, mature. Where are the lyrics in that? * So don’t quote me BY DEBBIE BALDWIN

Bomb Scare

T

HERE’S NO DOUBT THAT THIS HAS been one of the worst summers for Hollywood in recent memory. Correction: Hollywood actually did pretty well. We were the ones who had to suffer. And every time a big-budget movie faltered this summer, it didn’t simply disappoint, it went down in flames. You can almost hear Will Smith and Johnny Depp laughing over single malts at Teddy’s: “My my movie was bad, but yours? The plot... the CGI...that thing was Pluto-Nash bad. That was Ishtar bad.” “You’re just saying that. And don’t sell yourself short. The Lone Ranger is looking at Sahara losses...Cutthroat Island losses—that’s huge. Go big or go home. Now there are as many ways to get to the bottom line in Hollywood as there are ways to shoot a final scene. You can consider domestic box office, worldwide box office, DVDs, downloads, merchandising—with a good calculator and a positive outlook, any movie can be a winner. Nevertheless, there were numerous big-budget films this summer that euphemistically failed to meet expectations. In layman’s terms, they stunk. THE LONE RANGER There’s not a lot left to be said, except that it is on track to be the biggest box-office bomb in movie history. WHITE HOUSE DOWN In a calculated risk to show that stripperturned-actor Channing Tatum is more than just a pretty face, the studio did just that. They showed that he also has a great physique. Talent? Nope, not an ounce.

TANGENTIAL THINKER BULLET TO THE HEAD With the success of his over-the-hill action movie The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone was lulled into the delusion that he still had actionhero cache. He doesn’t. THE LAST STAND Substitute Schwarzenegger for Stallone and see above. AFTER EARTH Clearly, a bankable science-fiction movie needs incredible special effects. Oh yes, there’s that other thing too: a plot. Did John Carter teach us nothing? R.I.P.D. Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds star in this absurd comic-book adaptation about afterlife police officers. At least I think that’s what it’s about—I never once saw a trailer, a commercial or an ad. Hmmm.

Time Stands Still

Lee Daniels’ The Butler

BY MARK BRETZ

CIVIL SERVICE

THE STORY

RATING: 7 out of 10

W

ELL, OSCAR season is officially here, and Lee Daniels’ The Butler is an early contender. The film follows the life and career of a White House butler as he watches history unfold over the decades. Many words describe this film: sweeping, moving, heartwrenching and heart-warming. Unfortunately, slow and didactic also are on the list, but all in all, the film is a valiant effort. The butler is Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), an AfricanAmerican raised on a cotton farm, who joins the White House staff in an era of racism and segregation. Cecil quietly serves eight presidents with dignity while history unfolds before him. He observes the Civil Rights movement both from the residence of the commander-in-chief and from his own home, as his son experiences violence, racism and protest on the front lines. The acting in the film is exceptional, even the painfully over-exposed Oprah Winfrey is deft as the troubled Gloria Gaines; and Whitaker is, as always, stellar. The star-studded presidential cameos vary in success but are extremely entertaining. The problem with the film for me was that, while the Continued on page 53

REVERSAL OF FORTUNE RATING: 8 out of 10

TIME STANDS STILL PHOTO BY JOHN LAMB

W

OODY ALLEN IS A film legend. Yes, he has missed the mark on occasion. Yes, he is showing his age. There is no doubt, however, that he is at his best when he simply is telling a story. This film, an uncomplicated tale of a woman who has fallen on hard times, is a prime example. Blue Jasmine is Woody Allen at the top of his game. After living a charmed life as a Manhattan society wife, Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) finds herself alone and penniless when her swindling investor-husband Hal (Alec Baldwin) is sent to prison and subsequently kills himself. Like all narcissistic, entitled, delusional head cases, Jasmine turns to her family. She heads to San Francisco to stay with her sister, Ginger (Sally Hawkins), a struggling grocery clerk. Jasmine is determined to, once again, reinvent herself and find a suitable career (nothing menial) and/or another rich husband. Nevertheless, her limited options, tainted past and unacceptable living circumstances begin to wear on her mental stability. If Blanche DuBois leaps to mind, you’ve hit the nail on the head. This film is absolutely a modern retelling of A Streetcar Named Desire. Blanchett’s Oscar-worthy performance makes an interesting movie, exceptional.

Sarah, a photojournalist covering the Iraq War, is severely injured by a roadside bomb while on assignment. She is flown to Europe, where she is met by her partner, James. A reporter himself, James had left Iraq earlier after suffering a mental breakdown brought on by his own coverage of the war. James brings Sarah back to their Brooklyn apartment, where the disfigured and wounded photographer can convalesce. Soon after their arrival, they are visited by their friend, Richard, a photo editor for a major magazine, accompanied by his new and much younger girlfriend, Mandy. As Sarah recovers from her wounds (and as Richard announces that he and Mandy are starting a family), James sinks further into depression as his relationship with Sarah continues to evolve with increasing conflict between them.

HIGHLIGHTS It’s a testament to Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies’ craft that Time Stands Still is an absorbing work even though its two primary characters are not very likable people. One’s immediate concern for Sarah gradually evaporates through the course of the play as it becomes apparent that her self-centered view of life will not change. Similarly, James’ smug comment that “We were here before it was cool” in response to Mandy’s compliment on their apartment and neighborhood says quite a bit about his own shallow views. Mandy herself is quite the airhead, while Richard seems to be lost in the clouds much of the time.

COMPANY: Insight Theatre Company VENUE: Heagney Theatre, Nerinx Hall, 530 East Lockwood Ave. DATES: Aug. 22-25 TICKETS: $15-$30; 556-1293 or brownpaper tickets.com RATING: A 4.5 on a scale of 1-to-5.

WINE LIFE

Chaumette Vineyard & Winery

Exploring Missouri Wine Country

A

S FALL HARVEST APPROACHES, MANY people head out to experience classic Missouri Wine Country: rolling hills, vivid sunsets, winding rivers, fertile lands and warm people. We have wine country regions across Missouri, but some of the most well-known areas are Augusta, Ste. Genevieve and Hermann. A Few Missouri Wine Facts: • 1,600 acres of vines • 100-plus wineries ($42.4 million in revenue) • 14,000 jobs • Augusta was established as the first National American Viticultural Area (AVA or appellation) in 1980—yes, before Napa! “Isn’t It All Sweet Wine?” Many people dismiss our local wines because of this myth. Don’t get me wrong. There are definitely many sweet wines crafted in Missouri, but we’ve come a long way in the past 20 years. Good dry wines abound as better winemaking practices, growers and winemakers have yielded higherquality wines. Why are Missouri Grapes Different? Regular grapes (vitis vinifera) such as chardonnay, merlot and cabernet sauvignon don’t grow well in extreme temperatures like the heat and cold of Missouri. The solution was to graft and make hybrid vines or grape varietals more native to our climate (vitis labrusca). Chardonel is a cross of chardonnay and seyval grapevines to make it withstand our extreme temperatures. So, yes, like learning about any wine region, it takes a little reading and understanding—and tasting, of course! Main Grapes of Missouri

• White Varietals (dry to sweet): chardonel, seyval blanc, vidal blanc, traminette, vignoles • Red Varietals (dry to sweet): norton, chambourcin, catawba, concord A Closer Look at a White and Red Varietal • Chardonel: A cross of the famed chardonnay grape with seyval. This can produce wine that is lighter and fruity (with no oak fermenting/aging) to full-bodied, dry, oaked chardonel. • Norton: This American grape (aka Cynthiana) is full-bodied with red and dark fruits, some spicy notes and good tannins. This can remind you of zinfandel. This past weekend, my wife, Arlene, and I headed out to Ste. Genevieve to explore. First, we stopped at Crown Valley Winery, a newer, bigger property that overlooks the vineyard and rolling hills. We went to their tasting room and opted for a five-taste sampler. Wines are all across the board here, with the driest, chardonel, descending on to sweeter wines such as vignoles. We then set off for Charleville Vineyard & Microbrewery, just 2 miles away. Set high in the hillside, it makes for a great scenic view of the Ste. Genevieve wine country. We entered their tasting room and ordered the beer flight: five distinctively different beers from lighter to fuller-bodied (Pilsner, Half Wit Wheat, Tornado Alley Amber Ale, Hoptimistic IPA and Stout). We also tried their chardonel, which was fruit-forward and balanced. Next, we headed to Chaumette Vineyards & Winery, where we planned for an overnight stay. It is peaceful and tranquil, with beautiful villas and suites adorning the property. We headed to their tasting room and sampled a few wines; and

went out to their veranda, which looks out to a sun-kissed downward sloping hill and vineyard. French themes are apparent throughout, even on the veranda, where the chairs face out, typical of a Parisian café. After checking into our sanctuary for the evening, we were greeted by owner Hank Johnson in the tasting room for a special tasting of the Chaumette portfolio of wines. The evening continued at Grapevine Grill, where chef Adam Lambay is at the helm. Our Sunday supper featured a family-style menu using local farmers’ meats and produce. Freshness was tasted in every bite, and it all paired beautifully with our Chardonel Reserve. When you get a chance to eat food and drink wine from the same land, it’s always a perfect pairing. I couldn’t have been more proud of Missouri and our wine country. Head to any part of Missouri Wine Country to enjoy the views, people and wines at your own pace. When wine-tasting in Napa, one can feel herded from tasting room to tasting room; but in Missouri, they want you to stay, relax and enjoy the full experience! TASTING TIP: When tasting wines that have a lot of fruit, pay attention to how the wine finishes. You may get a lot of fruit up front. and then the wine finishes dry. WINE RECOMMENDATION: Expose yourself to Missouri wines and find your style or varietal— there is something for everyone. My favorites are chardonel and norton port. And at the end of the day, support local: It’s worth the investment and you don’t have to give up quality.

DINING OUT

spicybits The folks who own the local Potbelly Sandwich Shop franchise have announced they’ll be opening a second location at 12 S. Bemiston Ave. in Clayton in late October. The space previously housed the long-running The Fatted Calf, which closed earlier this year.

Attention cocktail aficionados, the Paris Of The Plains cocktail fest is happening this weekend in Kansas City, Mo. The event has expandedd to include a multitude of competitions, seminars and tasting opportunities. One of the highlight this year is the Midwest Melee, a team bartending competition that will feature some of St. Louis’ best, including KYLE MATHIS of Taste, JAYNE PELLIGRINO of Blood and Sand, MATT OBERMARK of The Agrarian, and JUSTIN CARDWELL of BC’s Kitchen. MATHIS and MANDI KOWALSKI of Sanctuaria Wild Tapas also will participate in the individual competition. The St. Louis culinary scene continues to get recognition on a national level. Bon Appetit magazine recently released its list of 50 Best New Restaurants in America, and the revamped Niche in Clayton and Elaia and Olio in Tower Grove made the cut at numbers 28 and 15, respectively. Congrats! The Dam, the new burger destination from MICHELE RACANELLI, has opened at 3173 Morgan Ford Road, next to the Amsterdam Tavern. The restaurant serves up locally sourced, antibiotic and hormone-free meats whenever possible. The site also will be the HQ for Racanelli’s event-planning and catering business, Michele C Catering & Events. Congrats to the teams from Winslow’s Home and Cielo at the Four Seasons Hotel for winning the Whole Foods Market Third Annual Grass-Fed Beef Burger Cookoff, held earlier this month. BY MATT SORRELL

Table

Have A Seat! BY SIDNEY LEWIS

TABLE IS RESTAURANT NO. 2 FROM THE husband-and-wife team of Cassy Vires and Josh Renbarger, proprietors of Home Wine Kitchen in Maplewood. While their new eatery differs from HWC in several ways, one thing remains the same: The food is fabulous. The space, which most recently housed The Stable restaurant (and started out, in fact, as a stable for the Lemp Brewery), is sprawling, with mile-high ceilings and plenty of elbow room. There’s also a spacious enclosed ‘patio’ for those who want that open-air experience, while still having a roof over their heads. The concept of Table is communal dining, so the dining room and patio feature several long tables instead of the usual single-party seating options. Dishes are organized roughly by the main ingredient: Under Hoof, you’ll find beef; while Beak lists the fowl options, and so on. There’s also a Feast section, featuring larger plates to be shared with your tablemates, like Suckling Pig ($26/ person); and Bites, which has a number of smaller snacks that can be mixed and matched at three for $12 (or six for $20). In keeping with the community dining theme, most of the portions are smaller and intended to be shared. Anyone who says they can’t find something they like on this menu definitely isn’t trying. With so much to choose from, we had a hard time figuring out where to start, finally deciding on the Potted Crab ($12) to get things going. This crock of rich crab came with a bit of cayenne butter and a dollop of pickled lemon to cut through the unctuous confit. The leftover bits that don’t always make it to the plate are sometimes the tastiest, and Table recognizes this fact with Offcuts, a small selection of plates centered around oft-ignored delights like pig ear and beef tongue. The Country Fried

Chicken Livers ($8) we opted for were coated in a crisp batter and served with a surprisingly mild tabasco aioli that had just enough kick to complement, but not overwhelm, the dish. These were our kind of chicken nuggets, to be sure. At Table, veggies are taken as seriously as the meat. Case in point, the Spicy Tomato Broth ($12), a gorgeous array of heirloom cherry tomatoes with some fried mozzarella and a bit of basil to set them off. Simple and beautiful to look at, and it tasted like summer on a plate. The standout dish among everything we sampled was the Cauliflower Mole ($10). On paper it seemed odd — flash-fried cauliflower served with a vanilla aioli and some crushed almonds. Not exactly a combo you see every day, so we had to try it. The subtle sweetness of the vanilla turned out to be an excellent complement to the cauliflower, which had just a bit of smokiness from the pan, and the almonds lent just the right amount of texture to the mix. Who knew? Our compliments to the chef on this one! For dessert, we had the Peanut Butter Semifreddo ($8). This creamy delight had just enough peanut butter flavor without going overboard, and the oatmeal and peanut cookie base could’ve been a dessert all by itself. On the beverage side, Table has plenty of beers and wines to choose from; and a cocktail list that has some interesting offerings like the Scotchtail ($10), which tastefully combines Scotch, sweet vermouth, pineapple, Angostura bitters and smoked jalepeño. Do yourself a culinary favor and head down to Cherokee Street as soon as you can and take a seat at the Table. 1821 Cherokee St., 449-1888 tablestl.com

Lots going on at O’Fallon Brewing Company. They will soon be adding a new beer to the Brewer’s Stash series, an Imperial India Pale Ale called 10-Day IPA. The big, bold, hoppy beer will be available from September through December at area grocery and liquor stores. Also, the brewery has introduced its popular O’Fallon Pumpkin beer in cans for the first time, just in time for tailgating season. Cheers!

EPWORTH CHILDREN & FAMILY SERVICES continued from page 18 cellars. And to cap off the evening, an auction will offer wines, winery trips and more. Last year’s record-breaking gala raised $357,000, and organizers hope to build on that success. More corporate sponsors than ever before are supporting this year’s event, notes Deborah LeMoine, who is co-chairing the gala with her husband, Bryan. Event proceeds will help grow preventive services, including counseling through Family Support Network, which merged with Epworth last year, LeMoine explains. Therapists, who currently serve about 220 area families, provide sessions for up to a year, as well as a year of follow-up services.

“The counseling occurs in their home environment where life happens for families,” LeMoine notes. With 30 families remaining on the wait list, she emphasizes that every dollar from the dinner counts. “We want the same thing for kids at Epworth as we want for our own kids, so they all can be excited about transitioning into adulthood.” In addition to its expanded preventive services, Epworth continues to offer programs to treat child abuse and neglect, from foster care case management and transitional and independent living to emergency shelter for youth facing a family crisis.

Epworth also remains active in legislation impacting area youth. This year, it spearheaded Senate Bill 205, which called for extending the foster care age limit from 18 to 21. In what was a special moment for Drollinger and a group of children from Epworth, they recently were on hand to witness the governor signing the bill, which officially goes into effect next week. Drollinger says it is “phenomenal” to see each child’s reaction to Epworth’s unwavering support. “A youth recently told me, You’re a nice guy, but you get paid to be nice. But the volunteers, they must really care about me.”

events that unfold in history are riveting, Cecil’s inscrutable service is less so. It’s a bit like making a documentary about a man who has a really good seat at the Super Bowl—the audience wants to watch the game, not the observer. It lacks the delicate balance between history and character study that Forrest Gump nailed so perfectly. Moreover, the film covers so much groundbreaking history, it is impossible to give every event the attention it deserves. Despite its flaws, the film is sure to be on the Oscar short list.

fragility of James’ psyche. Under director John Contini’s watchful eye, it’s painfully obvious to see that the decline in Sarah and James’ relationship is deeper than they had realized. The lesser roles of Richard and Mandy are effectively underscored by Jerry Vogel and Julia Crump. Vogel’s Richard is a soothing but practical man who does what he can for his friends. Crump looks the part of the girlish Mandy, but surprises with two powerful speeches, one in each act. There is considerable debate but no final resolution in Margulies’ thoughtful story, a fitting denouement in modern life.
