Famed newscaster Bob Costas will be honored with the Glennon Award for his 30-plus years of support. Learn more starting on page 10.

EDITOR WHEN I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SELECT THE CLOTHES FOR the 2018 LN Lil’ One winner, I eagerly went to Ladue’s own City Sprouts. While there, I fell in love with a little gray dress with beautiful detailing along the neckline. The City Sprouts employee quickly shared that it was a Lali Kids dress – praising the company’s creations and how, in fact, they are designed in St. Charles. This dress not only was used in the Lil’ One fashion shoot but also inspired us to learn more about the face behind these beautiful creations. Starting on p. 46, LN staff writer and digital editor Robyn Dexter shares the stunning story of Kinnari McDevitt, founder of Lali Kids. Born in India, McDevitt and her family immigrated to Chicago when she was 14 years old and felt called to create textiles inspired by her homeland that also have soul. We hope you enjoy reading McDevitt’s story and also find these cute creations as precious as we do! Also within this week’s edition, make sure to check out LN staff writer and copy editor Bryan A. Hollerbach’s story on the St. Louis International Film Festival, which kicked off just yesterday. This 11-day event not only will draw in big names like John Goodman but also will showcase a robust array of cinematic offerings. We hope you enjoy learning more about this event starting on p. 68. All the best,

erendipity and baseball. That’s what brought famed broadcaster Bob Costas to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. Thirty years ago, while in town covering a St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs game for NBC, Costas ran into Allen Allred, a longtime supporter of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon and a member of its foundation’s Board of Governors. At the time, Costas was planning to move back to St. Louis with his family and Allred took the opportunity to invite him to check out the hospital. “Bob came down and, being the generous guy that he is, asked what he could do to help,” recalls Allred. As it turns out, quite a lot. With Allred’s encouragement, Costas not only joined the hospital foundation board, but also lent his name, starry connections and engaging presence to a new fundraiser: the Bob Costas Benefit. Held annually, this black-tie extravaganza gathered the crème de la crème of comedy, music and sports. The event attracted comic talents like Billy Crystal, Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld. Joining these entertainers were celebrated musical performers, including Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, Diana Ross and Paul Simon, as well as legendary sports figures like Joe DiMaggio, Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle and Ozzie Smith. After 27 years and more than $17 million dollars raised for the hospital, Costas hosted his final namesake benefit in 2015. One of the most tangible results of his decades-long fundraising efforts is the hospital’s Costas Center, which was renovated in 2014 and provides
itter. event co-chairs Jerry and peggy r
both th in-patient and outpatient treatments for a wide variety of pediatric cancers and blood disorders. Unlike the typical hospital hosp floor – all sterile walls and harsh halogen lighting – the Costas Center is a bright, playful and, most importantly, inviting environment for children and their families. The center boasts an underwater theme, complete with a pirate ship, a 28-foot interactive yellow submarine and painted sea creatures swimming along the walls. Although it feels more like a playground, the center offers cutting-edge care and is a member of the Children’s Oncology Group, a clinical trials group supported by the National Cancer Institute and the largest global organization devoted to pediatric and adolescent cancer research. Costas will be honored with the prestigious Glennon Award at the third annual Glennon Glow on Saturday, Nov. 17, at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis. “The Glennon Award is the highest recognition given by our hospital,” explains Sandy Koller, vice president of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation, the nonprofit arm of the hospital that raises funds for education, facilities and programming. “This year marks 30 years of his support, so it was especially important for us to bestow it to him now.” Inspired by the Costas Center’s deep-sea décor, this year’s Glennon Glow will be an exciting evening “under the sea.” Co-chaired by Jerry and Peggy Ritter and emceed by KSDK newscaster Anne Allred, the black-tie affair will feature a special performance by comedian George Wallace. “When you walk in, the room will be transformed into something you’ve never seen before,” teases Koller. “It will be a wonderful environment.” Unlike many fundraisers of its kind, Glennon Glow does not host an auction. Instead,
the focus of the evening is on celebration and thanks. “It’s just be a fun night to celebrate [Cardinal Glennon] children and to support the hospital,” shares Koller. All proceeds from the event’s ticket sales benefit the Costas Center. Because of this event and Costas’ continued support, the hospital was able to raise $7 million to overhaul the 4 North in-patient oncology wing, which is part of the Costas Center. Completed earlier this year, the renovated floor is now cheerfully beach-themed and is outfitted with a bone marrow transplant center, larger patient rooms, private bathrooms and showers, new nursing stations and an updated playroom. As Koller details, “it’s such a healing environment for kids who are often in the hospital from two weeks to several months.” No child in need of care is ever turned away at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. “We treat kids no matter their parents’ ability to pay,” explains Koller. “That’s why this hospital is so important to our region. And none of it would be possible without our generous donor support.” SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation, 3800 Park Ave., St. Louis, 314-577-5605, 1-800-269-0552, glennon.org

LIGHT THE NIGHT WALK
Photos and story by Diane Anderson
he Leukemia & Lymphoma Societyâ€™s Gateway Chapter recently held its annual Light the Night Walk in St. Louisâ€™ Forest Park. Thousands of lanterns lit in shades of white, gold and red were carried by survivors, supporters and those who have lost loved ones to blood cancers. As individuals or as teams, most walkers collectively raised more than $1.3 million for the chapter. Walkers gathered for the 1-mile route through the park, blanketing Cricket Field in red, yellow and golden light. The celebration continued after the walk with music from the Fabulous Motown Revue and a fireworks finale. Ron Kruszewski served as the corporate walk chair.

St. Louis Learning Disabilities Association
UNLOCK THE MAGIC OF LEARNING Photos and story by Bryan Schraier
beautiful evening at Grant’s Farm greeted the 21st annual Unlock the Magic of Learning event benefiting the St. Louis Learning Disabilities Association. This family-friendly event featured activities for everyone, among them silent and live auctions, live entertainment by the Smash Band, Anheuser-Busch beverages, and beer-and-chocolate pairings from Bissinger’s Handcrafted Chocolatier. Activities for children included a clown who did balloon sculptures, stilt walkers who juggled, an inflatable bounce house and slide, face painting, fortunetelling, magic and a Wii station, along with such creature comforts as a Clydesdale, an iguana, a snake, a chinchilla and a parrot (Eddie by name). This event, the association’s most popular and best attended of the year, welcomed more than 400 adults and children, all supporting the association’s many programs that help children reach their full potential.
I’ve been involved with the LDA for about 14 years now. I first got involved because we started to think that our daughter might have some learning disabilities, and somebody recommended that we have her assessed. So we chose what is widely believed to be the best assessment organization in St. Louis – we took her to the LDA. Barb Talent did her assessment, and we did find that she had two fairly substantial learning disabilities. Because these were identified early, we were able to get her the proper supports, and she was a wonderful student as a result of getting these supports. And because I was so touched by the work that the organization does, I then joined the board to help further the mission.

Wine N By Jill Worobec | Photos supplied by Mosby Building Arts
umerous reasons exist for adding a wine cellar to your home: wine’s a passion of yours, you entertain quite a bit or, simply, you have an unused space that lacks a purpose. Whatever the motivation, such a cellar can bring added value to your home and endless enjoyment to your family. Wine cellars don’t need to be large – in fact, smaller is usually better. Ideally, a cellar will have minimal open space, with floor-to-ceiling wine storage and a narrow walkway in the middle. The internal temperature should remain consistent, with an excess of empty space surprisingly difficult to regulate. Fluid also makes a great insulator, so have an idea of how many bottles you want to store and plan your design accordingly. Humidity control and vibration cancellation (as well as light) number among other factors to incorporate into your design. The cellar’s humidity should stay

near 70 percent, and excessive vibration will disturb wine sediment, so insulating the room well remains important. A good design also allows you to store bottles in a way that doesn’t require reorganization to get to the wine you so desire. These featured Kirkwood homeowners wanted to create an entertaining destination in their basement. They wanted a place to store and showcase their collection of fine wines, as well as an area to socialize with friends. Above all, they hoped for a space that was inviting and had character. As a result, after the homeowners sought expert input, work on concepting a beautiful, high-end wine cellar commenced quickly. Remodeling crews built out the space and installed climate-controlled technology to ensure an ideal temperature. The finished cellar houses full-depth wine racks with a capacity of 512 bottles. Light-emitting diode accent lights provide a soft glow, and a stone archway and etched glass doors finish the space. Outside the cellar, design professionals created a wet
bar area perfect for entertaining. Solid cherry cabinetry from Ashland, Alabama’s Wellborn Cabinet was accented with detailed crown molding and a granite countertop and backsplash. Now the homeowners have an area to open their wine and share it with family and friends. The lesson learned here? If you find yourself with an abundance of wine and nowhere to store it, the metro area has professionals in the areas of design and remodeling to help you transition from cheerlessness to “Cheers!”

New or refurbished, fireplaces make for cozy times in late fall.
Up By Drew Gieseke
ooler temperatures punctuate this season, and nothing eases the transition from autumn to winter more smoothly than the steady crackle of a fireplace that adds rustic comfort and warmth to your living space during early evenings and slow-starting mornings. With busy fall schedules and the steady approach of the holidays, it might seem a daunting task to reach this picturesque reality, but metro area heating and fireplace experts know exactly what you want, even if you aren’t quite sure where to start. “You have to ask all the right questions to customers, and then you kind of steer them where they need to be based on their application and style, as well as if it is a remodel or new-build,” says Kylie Ellison, who works in business development for C. Bennett Premium Building Supplies. “We have six different fireplace brands, and the majority of them have about 60 different offerings, so there’s a lot of variety to choose from.” C. Bennett specializes in fireplaces, appliances, shower doors, mirrors and custom melamine shelving. The company’s salespeople work with individuals and builders directly to ensure that they find the perfect solution. That said, in plenty of cases, buyers already envision the ideal setup of what they want based on HGTV and Pinterest. “With HGTV now, everyone kind of knows what they want, but that doesn’t necessarily work with every application,” Ellison says. Enlisting the help of experts makes it easier to decide on practical details, such as selecting direct vent inserts over wood-burning setups for more efficient heating. Regardless, style is absolutely essential. “In higher-end homes, we’ve been noticing that traditional masonry looks are popular here in the Midwest, while the contemporary style is slowly growing,” she says, adding that this produces a more rustic/ traditional appearance thanks to either wood or stone materials,

compared to some other models of fireplaces featuring a greater abundance of metal. “There’s also modern linear fireplaces, which are more horizontal than classic styles. Some are 60 inches long and only 14 to 15 inches tall with many other sizes being available.” The differences, while seemingly minor, can be quite astounding. “We have fireplaces that fit any style, whether it is one you think you’d see in Colorado or something out in LA,” Ellison says. “Everything from traditional to very contemporary.” Modern style seems to trend in a more contemporary direction with a transitional appeal, though, according to Rick Forshaw Jr., general manager at Forshaw of St. Louis. “Contemporary fireplaces fit in bedrooms, basements and more casual spaces, where a traditional hearth and fireplace could be too much for the room,” he says. The company, which has been in business since 1871, has extensive experience in installing both indoor and outdoor fireplaces. “There’s usually more room for outdoor fireplaces to be stylistically different from the rest of the house,” Forshaw says. “Even with very traditional homes, contemporary styling on outdoor fireplaces is easy to tie into existing architectural details. Indoor fireplaces require more care that they fit with the décor of the home and that they complement other upgrades the homeowner has done.” At Fenton-based Victorian Sales, which is owned by husband-and-wife team Austin and Misty Townsend, the two more popular trends include veneer-stone refacing and direct-vent gas inserts. “With veneer stone, you can cover your dated brick front with any one of the available combination of colors and styles, and immediately give your fireplace and room a whole new look,” Austin Townsend says. Other trendy fashions the company notes include everything from dark-red brick fronts to newer tones, like white, sand gray and stone. With that in mind, the company works with customers every step of the way, from customers building new homes to others refacing fireplaces that are 20 or 30 years old. It also offers services from installing fireplaces in new construction and updating existing fireplaces to inspecting services and making repairs. “At Victorian Sales, we try to stock all the items you see in our showroom so that if you find something you need or want, you can take it home with you that very day,” Austin Townsend says, noting the company also sells, services and installs barbecue grills and accessories. Typical installs can range anywhere from a single day – usually for converting a wood-burning setup to a gas setup – to two to three days if the customer wants more extensive work done, like resurfacing or renovating an existing fireplace. Thankfully, it’s not too late to install or renovate. But it is best to start now. “The best advice for people wanting to get their fireplace or gas logs installed or services before the holidays is to call and schedule your service early, such as in July or August,” Austin Townsend counsels.

ecause eyelashes lend a woman’s face major drama, many of us wonder how to maximize them without getting lash extensions or strip lashes. Although lash extensions and strip lashes have their uses, they can cost a fair amount, and their upkeep may entail too much time and effort for some women. In that light, ladies, consider these five simple tips to work with your natural lashes to spotlight your look: Consider a lash growth serum. Very popular among women seeking to grow their natural lashes, this option involves applying one of the many lash growth serums on the market to your lash line before bedtime, which will actually grow your lashes. Never skip the eyelash curler. Curling your lashes before applying mascara opens your eyes and makes your lashes appear longer. If you’re not already incorporating this step in your makeup routine, add it now.
Use an eyelash primer. Eyelash primers have grown in popularity over the past few years, probably because they make a huge impact on lash volume. Essentially a white mascara, such a primer involves applying before mascara. Doing so primes your lashes for the mascara, and once applied, the combination makes your lashes look longer and fuller. Apply a volumizing mascara. Despite the many different kinds of mascaras on the market, if your
goal involves having full, luscious lashes, then seek a mascara specifically made to create volume. Always opt for under-eye mascara. Never skip under-eye mascara! Whatever the length of your bottom lashes, short or long, your look will remain sadly incomplete without mascara on them. So there you have it, ladies. Next time you feel your eyelashes need extra oomph, test one or all of the preceding tips to ensure maximizing your lash look.

Lali Kids founder Kinnari McDevitt creates high-quality whimsical wears for kids inspired by her homeland heritage.
innari McDevitt grew up at a crossroads of cultures. She was born in India and lived there until she was 14 years old before her family immigrated to Chicago. She and her family adapted to life in the States, and McDevitt came to St. Louis to earn a master’s degree in engineering before going to work for a major corporation. During her time as an engineer, she longed for a creative outlet and began creating clothing for her two nieces. The girls wanted to wear dresses, but didn’t want to wear the traditional Indian garb McDevitt was often inspired by. “I felt like there was a middle ground there that all kids could enjoy,” she says. “That’s where it all started.” After she and her husband, Greg, got married in 2011, the pair took a trip to India the following year. McDevitt had always been inspired by the vibrant colors and textiles of her homeland and was interested in seeing the Indian culture from his American perspective. “In America, people have tons of clothes and go buy new things every season,” she says. “It’s a very different way of consuming. In India, people have a lot of respect for types of fabric. They’re more aware of what they’re wearing – who made it, where they bought it. We have no idea where our clothes come from here.” Inspired by what she’d seen on her trip and the desire to create “clothing that had soul in it,” McDevitt started Lali Kids in 2013. Lali means “little darling” in Hindi, and McDevitt has made it her mission to create fair-trade children’s clothes out of the company’s home base of St. Charles. She spent months developing the brand’s first collection: a small set of 15 pieces of little girls’ clothing that launched in 2015. Since then, McDevitt’s been developing new collections for each season – most recently, the fall 2018 line. She bases each collection around a memory or feeling, gathering images over time that capture that state in her mind. From there, she develops a color palette for the season. The current line, for example, is based around the Nordic concept of hygge – the feeling of coziness and comfort that comes with the colder weather.
“Hygge is the underlying theme of the entire collection,” McDevitt says. “We had a print designer design a print that looks like a watercolor painting of a magical forest. If you look closely at it, it give you the sense of a walk in the woods.” Another piece from the collection is a double-layered dress that has two different fabrics layered together. “It’s so unique in that there’s a playfulness to it,” McDevitt says. “There’s one pattern on one side, but if you roll up the sleeves, it’s another pattern. It’s very festive and fun for the season.” New to the Lali Kids line is the boys’ collection, which recently launched. McDevitt notes the popularity of the collection’s arrow pants, which are garment-dyed. During the process, the garment is made first and then dyed, instead of vice versa, like most pieces. “There’s some color variation there, and they’re a soft knit cotton,” she says. “They’re fun and interesting in the way they look. They check all the boxes I try to accomplish in my pieces.” Nearly all Lali Kids pieces are made in India – aside from a set of fur vests that McDevitt made herself here in St. Louis and alpaca wool pieces from Peru. She says she chose to have her line manufactured in India because that’s where all the fabrics she wanted to use were, and she wanted to make a difference in the lives of the makers. “I’ve seen the struggle of what women in India often go through,” she says. “They often lack education and don’t have autonomy to leave their [low-income] lives. It’s important for me to find people who would benefit from what I’m doing.” McDevitt found a small factory in India that employs mainly women who are provided fair wages and have flexible hours to make her pieces. She designs the patterns for her fabrics herself and provides measurements to the weavers and printers in India, who turn around samples for her to review and photograph. Once adjustments are made, the pieces are manufactured and put out into 60 boutiques both nationally and internationally. The line was picked up by notable national retailers like Anthropologie and Maisonette and can also be found in Ladue at City Sprouts. McDevitt says City Sprouts owner Molly Curlee has been a Lali Kids supporter “since the day we launched” and was so excited to carry the line and give feedback. Aside from City Sprouts, Lali Kids can be found at pop-up shops throughout the season, including a holiday one at the Saint Louis Galleria’s Anthropologie in early December. These developments have led McDevitt’s once-small concept to take off more than she had anticipated. Luckily for McDevitt, each season and collection brings new opportunities to be creative. “Creating is a reward in itself,” she says. “I love seeing children enjoying the clothes and getting comments on Instagram about ‘This is my daughter’s favorite dress!’ It’s fun to know the intentions are coming through in what we’re doing.” One of the best parts of being the Lali Kids founder, though, is McDevitt’s chance to spend time with her 2½-year-old son, Aiden. “We were able to keep him in our studio and work around his nap time,” she says. “It’s really rewarding because I’ve gotten to spend those two years with him. Even now, he only goes to school part time. I feel like I didn’t miss anything, and that’s the biggest reward for me on a personal level.” Lali Kids, lalikids.com

FOR FALL By Frank Cusumano
HERE’S MY “FIVE BY FIVE” FOR THE MONTH:
I believe the Cardinals should go after the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Paul Goldschmidt. Tony La Russa told me Goldschmidt reminded him of Albert Pujols. Anytime anybody uses Pujols’ name in describing a player is a really good thing! Goldschmidt is a 31-year-old, six-time All-Star and a three-time Gold Glover. No one in baseball has ever said a negative thing about his character. Next year, he’ll be on the final year of his $14.5 million contract. Now, you’d have to give the Diamondbacks plenty in return for Goldschmidt. But the Cardinals have plenty to give. He’s the franchise player that we haven’t had since, ironically, Albert left. You’d replace Pujols, in a sense, with a reasonable facsimile of Pujols. That has a nice feel to it, doesn’t it?

Of course, if the Cardinals wanted to pay Manny Machado or Bryce Harper $350 million, I wouldn’t be opposed to that, either. I don’t think the city is big enough for Machado, but I do think Harper would consider our town. He likes to go home after games and watch Netflix. You can do that in St. Louis. Plus, the town would fall in love with him. He would love the adoration. He’s seen how the Cardinals treat their players. He wants to win. And if you sign him, that means the Cubs don’t get him. If the Cubs get Harper in the offseason, and the Cardinals don’t counter with a superstar, it’s game, set, match.
I would encourage all sports fans to get to a Billikens game this season. It’s the single most athletic team they’ve had in my 25 years of covering them. Travis Ford has recruited arguably the best player in town for the last two years. That doesn’t happen at SLU. Ford and his great staff have tried to seal the borders. I think they have a chance to get to the NCAA Tourney. Wait till you see you Jordan Goodwin feeding the ball to Carte’Are Gordon. Wait till you see Hasahn French on the block.

What a difference in the way two professional sports leagues have treated our city. The NFL was brutal and dishonest, and they will likely, along with the Rams, pay a huge price for what they did. The MLS is waiting and hoping we have our act together. They want our city, and our city wants the MLS. Thanks to the efforts of the Taylor family and Jim Kavanaugh, we’ll make the MLS an offer they can’t refuse: the required money in a downtown state-of-the-art soccer-specific stadium in a town with an incredible soccer history. How do you beat that? You don’t. The board of aldermen can’t complain because there’s no tax and nothing to be voted on. This is a win-win!

Taming Temper Tantrums
By Dr. Joseph Kahn
child yells, the softer you should speak. If this happens in a public place, be ready to remove your child from that location to a quieter spot. It may help to give your child a few minutes to vent and let things get better while you ignore the behavior. Try creating a diversion. Engage your child in a more positive behavior, while avoiding reinforcing the unwanted behavior. Remember that positive reinforcement of desired behaviors goes a long way to avoiding unwanted ones. Offer an incentive to behave. If you know you are going to be in a situation in which your child may be bored or more likely to melt down, be proactive. Parents often tell me that they don’t want to bribe their child into acting properly. Think of a reward for good behavior as an incentive (like getting a paycheck for showing up to work every day) rather than a bribe. We all like to be given incentives and rewarded. For more information or to find a pediatrician near you, visit mercy.net/laduenews.
hildren between the ages of 1 and 5 have poorly developed coping skills and are prone to have tantrums. In younger children, tantrums result from not getting their way. In older preschoolers, tantrums are more of a power struggle between the parent and child wishing to assert his or her autonomy and desires. It’s an age-old question – how can parents prevent tantrums? Find opportunities to recognize and reward good behaviors. Be aware of your own response to stress, and try to avoid overreacting, yourself. Your child needs to know that it’s OK to be frustrated but not OK to scream, yell and kick every time things don’t go his or her way. Recognize triggers for tantrums. If your child throws a fit when hungry, begin to recognize signs of hunger. Be sure he or she also gets plenty of sleep. Even if you do your best to avoid tantrums, they will still happen. So then what? Unless your child is in danger of harming himself or herself or others, leave him or her alone, wait a few minutes and then check on things. Attention reinforces the undesired behavior, so don’t give in. The louder a

Port Excels at Norwood Hills By Warren Mayes
LOCAL GOLFERS IN WOMEN’S MID-AM DO WELL Washington’s Kayla Eckelkamp played well in the Women’s Mid-Am at Norwood Hills. Eckelkamp advanced out of stroke to play in Round 64. She reached match play by winning in a playoff to tie with a 159 on rounds of 80 and 79. In the playoff, she earned the No. 60 spot. Eckelkamp won her match against No. 5 Paige McCullough of Stillwater, Minnesota, 3 and 1. She then faced Caroline Ellington of Raleigh, North Carolina, in her Round 32 match, winning the match in 19 holes. In Round 16, Eckelkamp lost to Michelle

Butler of Columbia 4 and 3. St. Louisan Kallie Harrison failed to make the cut for match play. Harrison, a member of Norwood Hills, was playing in her first USGA event, finishing with a 164 on rounds of 81 and 83. Wentzville’s Kelli Kirchoff also failed to make the cut, shooting 166 on rounds of 81 and 85. Butler birdied the par-5 18th hole to edge Olivia Herrick of Roseville, Minnesota, in her first-round match. In her round of 32 match, Butler defeated Mexico’s Ana Alicia Malagon 2 and 1. Butler lost 3 and 1 to Lauren Greenlief of Ashburn, Virginia.
JOHNSON WINS U.S. WOMEN’S MID-AM Shannon Johnson, the 2018 medalist and a runner-up in 2016, birdied the par-5 18th hole at Norwood Hills to defeat defending champion Kelsey Chugg 1 up. It was a riveting, back-and-forth U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur final that featured 10 birdies between the two competitors. Johnson of Norton, Massachusetts, took a 2-up lead on Chugg of Salt Lake City, Utah, on two occasions in the match, but both times, Chugg rallied to win the next three holes, edging ahead of Johnson for the final time when she made a two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th. Johnson answered Chugg with her own 25-foot birdie putt on the par-4 16th, and after both players parred No. 17, Johnson reached the green in two on the 474-yard, par-5 18th. Chugg laid up to 60 yards on No. 18 and hit a wedge to within 10 feet for the birdie. Her putt slid past the left edge of the hole, and Johnson tapped in from 1½ feet to capture the championship that eluded her both in 2016 – when she lost, 2 and 1, to Julia Potter-Bobb – and in 2016 – when she lost in the semifinals. Chugg’s bid to become the fourth player to capture back-to-back titles – only the second to do so in her first two attempts
(Meghan Stasi, 2006-07) – fell just short. Johnson hit a 220-yard 7-wood onto the 18th green to leave herself 20 feet for an eagle, but it turned out that a birdie was enough to make her the 32nd U.S. Women’s Mid-Am champion.
HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS GOLFERS STAY ACTIVE St. Joseph’s Academy headed into the Class 2 state golf tournament undefeated and in search of a third consecutive state championship, eventually landing that laurel at Swope Park Golf Course in Kansas City on Oct. 18. The Angels won the District 2 meet at Quail Creek Golf Course with a team score of 308. In the Sectional 1 tournament at Crescent Farms, St. Joseph’s recorded a four-player team score of 301 to win. St. Joseph’s senior Lauren Gallagher tied for the medalist in the sectional, recording a 1-over 73. Tied with Gallagher was Lindbergh sophomore Sofia Gamayo. St. Joseph’s freshman Mia Rallo tied with Momo Kikuchi of Pattonville for medalist honors with a 2-over 74 in the district. Lafayette sophomore Brooke Biermann earned medalist honors by winning the District 3 tournament and the Sectional 2 tournament. Biermann fired an even-par 72 to win the district played at The Landings at Spirit Golf Club by six shots. In the sectional meet at Tanglewood Golf Course in Fulton, Biermann shot a 3-over 75 to win by two strokes. Lafayette shot a 361 in the district to advance to the sectional as a team, but the Lancers came in fifth in the sectional to end their season. In Class 1, MICDS finished second in the District 1 tournament at Sunset Hills Golf Course; the Rams came second at 354, two strokes behind John Burroughs. MICDS junior Parker Perry shot a season-best 3-overpar 75 to be the district medalist.

t. Louis’ Ellen Port advanced out of Round 64 in the 32nd U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship at Norwood Hills Country Club. Port, a seven-time USGA champion, was the No. 32 match play seed and has won the U.S. Women’s Mid-Am four times. In the first round of match play, Port eked out a 1-up victory over Truc Ly of Vietnam. “I was very fortunate to win,” Port says. “I was down or even most of the match. I had a couple of unforced errors from the middle of the fairway, which was disappointing, so I had to fight off thinking ‘should have, would have, could have.’ I had Ryan Roy, the head pro here for 13 years, on the bag, and he knows the greens better than anyone.” Port’s 1-up victory was her first match win in the U.S. Women’s Mid-Am since 2012, and the record 59th of her career. Port moved three victories ahead of Carol Semple Thompson, who holds only 56. Tournament play came to an end for Port in Round 32, where she lost 2 and 1 to eventual champion Shannon Johnson. It was Port’s 21st time competing in the Women’s Mid-Am.

Paycheck By Connie Mitchell
PrePariNg for your 2018 tax returN wiLL require ChaNges froM Previous years due to the New tax Laws.
f you don’t want an unpleasant surprise next April 15, you may want to give your paycheck a checkup now. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act signed into law by President Donald Trump on Dec. 22, 2017, decreased the highest income tax rates, but for many people, other aspects of the law could negatively affect their tax situation. “While tax rates have decreased, this impacted withholding for those earning a salary or pension,” says Margaret Klokkenga, a senior advisor with Clayton Financial Group. Some people noticed less tax withholding this year. However, Klokkenga says, “There may be many other factors in an individual’s tax situation, so the decreased withholding may show up in the individual owing more tax when they file their tax return in 2019.” Those “other factors” are complicated. Thomas Bassett, CPA, JD, AEP, vice president and East Region tax manager for Commerce Trust Co., notes that the new law introduces many changes, and knowing how it will affect individual or household tax returns requires in-depth planning and modeling. “You’ll need to replicate your 2017 tax info in software that has the 2018 rules,” he says. “And, more than ever before, you’ll need a tax professional to help you interpret the results.” One thing individuals earning a paycheck can do on their own, however, is visit irs.gov and do a “Paycheck Checkup.” The link takes users to the IRS Withholding Calculator. Using data from a current pay stub, the calculator helps estimate the appropriate withholding. A similar calculator for Missouri state withholding is at dor.mo.gov under “Popular Services.” “If you find that your withholding is coming up short, contact your human resources department and request a W-4 and MO W-4 to update your withholding,” Klokkenga says. “You can also make a one-time fourth-quarter federal and/or Missouri estimate, due Jan. 15, 2019, in lieu of revising your withholding.” Yet withholding is only one concern. High-income earners are likely to have itemized their tax deductions in the past, something they may no longer be able to do under the new law. Another important change is that home equity loan interest may no longer be deductible. It depends on the amount and how the proceeds are used. “Miscellaneous itemized deductions have been eliminated, which affects taxpayers with investment advisor fees and employee business expenses,” Klokkenga says. “Personal exemptions were also eliminated, but the standard deduction increased to incorporate the removal of the personal exemption. All of these changes may make the standard deduction more appealing.” “As always, you’ll need to estimate both your regular income tax and your selfemployment tax,” Bassett says. “The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act didn’t really change selfemployment taxes, so you’ll still need to set aside that 15.3 percent of your income to pay that tax and make estimated payments. For income taxes, there’s a new code section – Section 199A – that gives many business owners an extra 20 percent deduction in calculating taxable income.” However, Bassett calls the calculations relating to that new deduction “breathtakingly complex.” And since the IRS has yet to release any draft forms for the Section 199A calculation, it remains to be seen exactly how those who qualify will be claiming this deduction on their return. “But most tax professionals have access to some software tools to help you plan for how to qualify for this deduction and what it might do to your taxes for 2018,” Bassett says. Some additional tax strategies may help offset potential negative effects of the new law. “If you’re in a tax year where your income is substantially higher, consider clumping your charitable contributions and lumping your deductions together to maximize your itemized deductions,” Klokkenga says by way of example. “You can donate low-basis stock to a donor-advised fund and receive the deduction in that tax year, but you can wait to make any grants to charities until subsequent years if you wish.” She also notes that people who invest in state-specific 529 college savings plans for their children may now distribute up to $10,000 per child per year to pay for K-12 private education in addition to higher education that was previously allowed. “Open up a MOST [Missouri’s 529 savings plan] account if you haven’t already and contribute up to the maximum deduction received on the Missouri tax return, which is $8,000 if filing single or head of household and $16,000 if married filing jointly,” she suggests. “You can contribute the money and immediately distribute the money to pay for college expenses or up to $10,000 for K-12 private-education expenses.” Tax advisors and accountants tend to become busy with year-end work in December, Klokkenga adds, so November is a good time to check in with your advisor and check up on your tax situation.

he Frisco Barroom, which debuted in Webster Groves in July, offers rustic American cuisine in a classic tavern-style setting and comes from the husband-andwife duo of John and Kelley Barr of Civil Alchemy, a modern-day general store on the same block. “These buildings once operated by the train station immediately behind the building on the Frisco line, and my wife and I are bringing them back to their former glory,” John Barr says. “We wanted to offer a down-to-earth, all-inclusive corner barroom that fit the history of the space.” The space, which formerly housed The Natural Way natural-food store, features around 250 seats across two stories of dining areas and patios. William E. Elliott of St. Louis’ Kenrick Design/Construction Services served as the architect, putting the Barrs’ idea of a classic Americana-style barroom on paper. Restored aspects of the structure include an original tin ceiling and pine floors. New facets include a bank of French doors.
NOVEMBER 2, 2018 | LadueNews.com
Second-story seating includes a lounge and rooftop deck. To carry out their vision for the restaurant, the Barrs assembled a team that includes general manager and consultant Greg Hard, executive chef Tim Montgomery, sous-chef Mike Roos, prep specialist John Hopfinger and bar manager Derek Fleig. The kitchen crew brings experience in various meat markets to the forefront of the scratch-made menu. “It’s honest and familiar rustic American and Midwestern fare,” Barr says. “The menu includes simple things we like to eat around St. Louis and Michigan, where we spend a lot of our time – my wife’s from there. We’re baking our own breads, curing and roasting our own meats and trying to bring simple, familiar fromscratch food to people.” Highlights include a smoked whitefish dip with, predictably, smoked whitefish, cream cheese and herbs, served with flatbread sea-salt crackers. Additional snacks and small plates include marinated grilled chicken wings served with Buffalo sauce or

Peruvian green pepper sauce; crispy tempura-battered cauliflower served with Buffalo sauce or buttermilk dressing; Cornish and vegetarian pasties; and a recipe from Kelley Barr’s family: potato pierogies with caramelized onion, browned in butter and served with sour cream. A recipe from John Barr’s family also made it into the fold: a simple house salad with chopped romaine and green leaf lettuce, tossed with lemon-herb vinaigrette and red onion. Boards are another popular pick, including such options as the Fisherman’s Board, with smoked whitefish dip, lox, smoked trout, herbed cream cheese, capers, pickled vegetables, lemon preserves, dried cranberries, assorted nuts, flatbread crackers and crusty bread. A quarter-pound beef “smash” burger is also available, as well as other sandwiches including a house-made salsiccia with stone-ground mustard and hot giardiniera on an Italian roll from St. Louis’ Marconi Bakery. According to Barr, all other breads are made in-house.

Since the establishment’s opening, its menu has expanded to include a quintet of entrées, each served with two sides: a grilled sirloin steak, a grilled halfchicken, grilled stuffed portobello caps, garlic grilled shrimp and rainbow trout. The bar perforce features a wine list and craft beers including local options and microbrews from Michigan and Colorado. Cocktails include concoctions such as the Cablecar with The Kraken Black Spiced Rum, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao, lemon juice and simple syrup, served with a cinnamon-sugar rim. So whether you’re interested in trying one of the establishment’s marvelous dishes or drinks, be sure to do so before catching Admissions from The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis. “We wanted to design a menu and drinks that open this place up to being used by everyone,” Barr says. “In doing so, we’re trying to have good-quality food you can come in and enjoy on any budget. We’re trying to share the experience of this great old building that we love, and we want to share it with everybody.”

Story: Sherri Rosen-Mason takes her job as admissions officer at a New Hampshire prep school quite seriously. She believes strongly in diversity and in raising the percentage of nonwhite students at Hillcrest, the school, which had a paltry 6 percent or so of its student body represented by people of color before she arrived years earlier. Now that figure is 18 percent, and she’s working hard to have one-fifth of the students be people of color by the end of the 2015-16 school year. Her husband, Bill, is headmaster at the same tony school and a passionate supporter of inclusion. Like them, Sherri’s best friend, Ginnie, is white, but the mother of a mixed-race child who has been best friends with Sherri and Bill’s son, Charlie Luther. When Ginnie’s son, Perry, learns that he has been accepted to New Haven, Connecticut’s prestigious Yale University, his family is thrilled with the news, as are Sherri and Bill. Sherri is anxious to learn if Charlie also will be attending Yale, but he’s been missing for most of the day. Charlie returns home late in the evening in a surly mood. Asked whether he’s received an acceptance letter from Yale, Charlie sarcastically informs his parents that he’s on the “waiting list.” He isn’t happy about that – or about Perry gaining admission to the Ivy League university, despite the fact that Charlie has superior SAT scores and has taken more Advanced Placement classes. Reacting with anger, disappointment and resentment, Charlie launches into a tirade about how the movement to accept more students of color, not only at Hillcrest but also elsewhere, has resulted in him being left out of Yale, at least in the short term. Sherri sympathetically addresses Charlie’s feelings while noting the altruistic motives of her own work. Bill is less tolerant as he rails against his own “spoiled” son and the latter’s white privilege. As Charlie’s feelings become known on campus, a strain is placed on the friendship between Sherri and Ginnie. The Mason family is in store for additional angst when Charlie announces what he plans to do once he graduates from Hillcrest. It isn’t what his parents wanted to hear, and they aren’t about to quietly accept their son’s decision if it runs contrary to their own desires. Highlights: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis opens the final season of its Studio Theatre under the leadership of artistic director Steven Woolf with a searing, sensational presentation of Joshua Harmon’s 2018 Drama Desk Award winner for Outstanding Play. Admissions is both contemporary and controversial – the type of provocative material. Other Info: While Admissions speaks to diversity, there isn’t a person of color among its quintet of characters. There are plenty of raw nerves exposed, however, in the often contentious dialogue. Admissions moves in fits and starts with that
By Mark Bretz
occasionally odd cadence. Woolf, however, directs the production with finesse. Thom Niemann delivers Charlie’s screed with jawdropping precision as the teen rages against the fates and his own position in the 21st century with a titanic outburst. He’s equally adept at subtly conveying Charlie’s quiet, albeit unenthusiastic, endorsement of his mother’s professional accomplishments in a scene where Bill insensitively pops the bubbly in Charlie’s presence. R. Ward Duffy is tasked with making the self-centered Bill at least somewhat sympathetic. He’s a fine actor and plays the role with precision, but the character as written is unlikable for his pretentious demeanor. Henny Russell finely delineates Sherri’s many facets, from patiently explaining the realities of diversity to old-school development director Roberta to her genuine happiness for Ginnie and Perry to her concern and dreams for Charlie. As the mentally plodding Roberta, Barbara Kingsley steals the scenes in which the dutiful yet defiant subordinate slyly debates the quantity of diversity that Sherri would like in the school manual. It’s a humorous and engaging performance that provides much-needed levity for the heavy subject matter. Kate Udall delivers a well-etched portrayal as Ginnie, who picks up on the subtle responses by Charlie to her own son’s good news and Sherri’s avoidance of rebuking Charlie for those responses in her presence. Her final scene with Russell is painfully poignant to observe. What’s interesting about Admissions is that each of the characters makes both good points and bad ones, a gray area where many Americans reside. Admissions is thought-provoking and well packaged in The Rep’s rendition, and couldn’t be more timely.

West End Players Guild presents the world premiere of THE GREAT SEDUCTION at the theater in the Union Avenue Christian Church.

Steve Callahan directs a cast that includes Jason Meyers as the Duke, Heather Sartin as the Countess, Gracie Sartin as Gabrielle, Alex Fyles as Raoul and Rachel Bailey as the Countess’ long-suffering maid, Mariette. 8 p.m. Thursday (second week only), Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets cost $25 for the general public and $20 for seniors and students. westendplayers.org.
The St. Louis County Library Foundation presents C. MORGAN BABST for a discussion and signing of her novel, The Floating World, at library headquarters in Ladue. In this dazzling debut about family, home and grief, Babst takes readers into the heart of Hurricane Katrina and the life of a great city. As the storm is fast approaching the Louisiana coast, Cora Boisdoré refuses to leave New Orleans. Her parents, Joe Boisdoré, an artist descended from freed slaves who became the city’s preeminent furniture makers, and his white “uptown” wife, Dr. Tess Eshleman, are forced to evacuate without her, setting off a chain of events that leaves their marriage in shambles and Cora catatonic – the victim or perpetrator of some violence mysterious even to herself. Books will be available for purchase at the event from Left Bank Books. 7 p.m. Free. slcl.org.
ll innocently, through no fault of its own, St. Louisan Alex Paradowski’s Happy Man may inspire a degree of disquiet. At base, of course, that 36-inch-square portrait created earlier this year oughtn’t prompt such a response, given its origin in a precedent photograph by Paradowski. “A couple years ago, my church was providing family photos at a Mother’s Day brunch,” he notes. “I was the photographer. Derrick, the man in the photo, has a terrific smile, so I cropped him out of the family photo and used him as the subject for a process I call ‘paper mosaics.’” And therein lies the rub – or, as the case may be, lurks the aesthetic hubbub. The mosaic, as a technique and tool of the visual artist, reportedly dates “merely” from the third millennium B.C., making it something of a whippersnapper beside geezers like painting and sculpture. Nonetheless, today’s HD-crazed zeitgeist – wherein technological pixelation has pixilated far too many folks – has all but obliterated the recollection of how much the art and craft of an old-school mosaic puts the pain in painstaking. Paradowski’s own painstaking process on Happy Man and similar works involves five step. “I cast the paper cubes by first shredding all the wastepaper from my laser printer, as well as other wastepaper, soak it in water, and take it back to a pulp consistency in a blender,” he says of the first step. “After squeezing the excess water out of the pulp, I mold individual cubes in a plastic grid from an old fluorescent ceiling fixture. After drying the cubes overnight with a fan, I release the cubes from the grid. Each of these cubes will eventually be painted one by one based on the subject I’m working on. “For white cubes, I apply the same process to clean paper, and once dried, they don’t require painting. As in the case of Happy Man, I usually produce these mosaics from photographic reference. I love combining the old art forms of papermaking and mosaic with today’s digital photography technology.” Then begins the second step. “Once I have a sufficient quantity of paper cubes – Happy Man was made with 2,025 cubes – I can concentrate on the subject,” Paradowski says. “My subjects have ranged from figure studies to portraits and classic toys like teddy bears and beach balls to botanicals and geometrics. I work in Photoshop to achieve the desired image, which is a matter of balancing detail, color and artistic license. I create a ‘map’ in Photoshop which guides how I paint the individual cubes.” By comparison, Paradowski’s third step seems almost too easy: “I mix paint to match the pixels I’ve settled on in Photoshop, which can be 30 to 50 colors, and begin painting the cubes accordingly.” That illusion of easiness vanishes with the fourth step. “Once I have most of the cubes painted, I begin hot gluing them one by one into a grid that will eventually become the finished piece,” Paradowski relates. “The intrinsic beauty of each cube, with its own rough texture, combines with all the other cubes to create a surface texture that I find very appealing. I believe my mosaics have two realities – an abstract panel of color and texture when viewed up close and a more photographic reality when viewed from a distance.”
Paradowski’s process concludes with a fifth step, he says: “After touching up any cubes that have been scratched or damaged during the gluing process, I attach the assembled art to a final substrate and frame it behind acrylic to keep it safe and clean.” The artist’s name, incidentally, may ring the proverbial bell with certain area residents. After earning a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Springfield’s Missouri State University and conducting graduate studies at New York’s famed Syracuse University, in 1977, he “started Alex Paradowski Graphic Design, a graphic design firm which later became Paradowski Creative, a full-service creative agency with a diverse range of clients. “In the 35 years that I operated the company, it grew from a sole proprietorship to a formidable agency employing 50 people and garnering hundreds of awards for a variety of work. The company was sold in 2012, allowing me to pursue other interests, including my personal art.” Otherwise, Paradowski provides intriguing insights into the history of his mosaic process. “I was doing something similar with fabric but it required getting much farther away to see the image, and I was limited to the available colors of fabric,” he says. “I was looking for a way to solve both issues.

“I’ve always been a bit of a hoarder, having saved pieces of a broken fluorescent grid for years just knowing I would ‘need’ them someday. … I came across the grid again while searching for an answer to my fabric problems. After doing a couple tests of casting paper cubes and experimenting with paint, the process began to take shape. The challenges of keeping the assembly square and achieving a balance of rough edge versus finished edge all presented themselves along the way. “The process of making thousands of cubes and sometimes painting hundreds of the same color while needing only three of another color is admittedly tedious, but the personal satisfaction when all the pieces come together is the reward. As I’ve become more and more comfortable with the process, I’ve been less intimidated by the scope of the numbers. Pieces with 3,000 and 4,000 cubes are no longer uncommon, and I’m getting ready to begin two that will require over 5,000 cubes.”

now Showin The metro area’s preeminent annual cinematic event should have local film fans again quaffing colas and jonesing for Jujubes.
he finest cinema drops viewers into the deepest darkness to lift them toward the light, as the 27th annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival does with offerings running a gleeful gamut from An American Tragedy to Zombillenium. That 11-day event, colloquially known as SLIFF, is even now unreeling, having opened Thursday, Nov. 1, with both its customarily robust slate of cinematic offerings (some ticketed, many free) and an impressive array of special guests. In discussing the festival – whose full schedule appears with other details on the website of Cinema St. Louis, the nonprofit behind SLIFF – executive director Cliff Froehlich, the cinéaste’s cinéaste, sounds as effervescent and effusive as ever. “We have our usual range of different subjects and genres,” Froehlich says of the event, which involves 28 topical categories running the gamut from American Indie Spotlight through Middle Eastern Focus to Women in Film Spotlight. Within those categories, the festival comprises 126 narrative features, 78 documentary features and 23 shorts programs, as well as 17 special events. “People always think of film festivals as being some sort of elitist experience, where only those in the know, the true cinephiles, are going to be able to appreciate it,” Froehlich continues regarding the 2018 SLIFF’s “big tent” approach. “But in fact, we have films that range well across all genres. There are comedies. There are Westerns – modern Westerns and even one classic. There are all sorts of different kinds of movies that are on offer during the festival and, if anything, an even more diverse selection than we have typically.” Given its breadth, citing the titles of a dozen offerings chosen at

random will have to suffice to hint at the delights awaiting local film fans at this year’s festival: Bathtubs Over Broadway, Boy Erased, The City That Sold America, The Drunkard’s Lament, A Girl Named C, An Illustrated History of St. Louis Drive-In Movie Theaters, Mapplethorpe, My Big Gay Italian Wedding, Rodents of Unusual Size, Stay Human, This Changes Everything and This One’s for the Ladies. Attendees of prior festivals will find themselves in familiar environs – by and large. “All the same venues from last year are back,” Froehlich notes, indicating the Missouri History Museum, Plaza Frontenac Cinema, the St. Louis Public Library, the Stage at KDHX, the Tivoli, Washington University, Webster University and the .ZACK. The festival has added a few venues, including the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Delmar Hall, The Gathering and Schlafly Bottleworks. “We have a couple of really huge guests this year,” Froehlich continues, before striking a “good news/bad news” note. The good news? Former Affton native and St. Louis Walk of Famer John Goodman – star of The Big Lebowski, the 1998 Joel and Ethan Coen production that the festival will be reprising – arguably ranks as the hugest of those guests. And the bad news? The festival’s Goodman component sold out faster than even the fastest-talking fan could say, “The Dude abides.” “It’s one of his greatest roles, in my estimation,” Froehlich says of Goodman’s portrayal of Vietnam vet/bowler Walter Sobchak in The Big Lebowski, “but also it’s celebrating its 20th anniversary. … John will be here for a conversation. [KTRS radio personality] John Carney will conduct the conversation with him. We’ll show clip reels of [Goodman’s] great highlights, and we’ll present him with a lifetime achievement award.”
A second name on the special guest list should brighten the face of any true local cinéaste. “I should mention that we’re also honoring Joe Edwards,” Froehlich says, “specifically in our case because of his work in restoring the Tivoli, which would have otherwise been lost entirely – and of course, doing such a beautiful job.” Like Goodman, Edwards, the owner and operator of University City’s famed Blueberry Hill and manifold other forward-looking local businesses, also will receive a lifetime achievement award. Beyond Goodman and Edwards, other film-related guests, to whom SLIFF will present different awards, include Jim Finn, Jane Gillooly, Karyn Kusama, Melanie Mayron and Jason Reitman. As something of an emphasized aspect this year, Froehlich touts “lots of live music” accompanying or embellishing certain of the screenings, especially the restoration of the 1916 Douglas Fairbanks silent The Half-Breed, which will itself accompany I, Douglas Fairbanks, a French documentary in English. The festival likewise will offer a number of music-related films, among them One Toke Over the Line and Still Smokin’, devoted to late’60s/early-’70s folk-rockers Brewer & Shipley – singer-songwriters Mike Brewer and Tom Shipley, who now both live in Missouri and who arguably achieved their highest profile with the 1970 radio hit “One Toke Over the Line.” Past a certain point, of course, the 2018 SLIFF defies coherent (let alone easy) description – so just keep repeating this handy ticketwindow mantra: “One, please!” Cinema St. Louis, 3547 Olive St., No. 260, St. Louis, 314-289-4150, cinemastlouis.org
