SOCIETY IN AN AVERAGE WEEK, I ATTEND ONE TO THREE EVENTS—GALAS, luncheons, performances, etc.—so it’s not unusual for me to run into the same people who carry on with a similar schedule as I do. And with every event, there are those who consistently stand out. Call it a combination of confidence, charisma and style, these are people who command your attention as soon they walk into the room. It is with this premise that we’ve assembled our first-ever gathering of LN’s Best-Dressed St. Louisans. What do a banker, fashion designer, restaurateur, TV host and graphic artist have in common? No, there’s no punch line, but they all did walk into a St. Louis bar recently to pose for our cameras. But their sense of style is only part of the package: As you’ll see, our best-dressed ambassadors also are committed to the St. Louis community, be it through their support of local enterprises or their advocacy of worthy nonprofit causes. Turn to p. 27 to see who made the list.

Whose sense of style do you admire? ANN LEMONS POLLACK STYLE OF WHAT? DÉCOR? I HAVE A friend who mixed English antiques and California ranch. Clothing? My pal Diane Weitman. Writing? The wondrous M.F.K. Fisher, who wrote about food and love and life—my literary godmother.

KATIE YEADON HOW CAN I NOT SAY JACKIE O? HER blend of classic taste with on-trend style made her the icon that she is. The staples in my closet (Jack Rogers, capri pants, a great shift dress, even my son Whit’s john johns) were all made famous by Jackie. She was the epitome of chic!




I THINK ACTOR/DIRECTOR/SCREENwriter Justin Theroux consistently blends masculinity, style and sophistication. I mean c’mon, it’s tough for a guy to be stylish. And also, how can you not like a guy who rides motorcycles and writes movies like Tropic Retweet Thunder? Twitter

DIANE’S SCOOP: Lou and Jackie Brock are looking forward to once again serving as honorary chairs for the Old Newsboys Day fundraising events as they get underway for 2014...Another Civil Rights leader, Frankie Muse Freeman, hinted that she likes the written word of Ladue News and wishes she could get home delivery. (We’ll try to fix that!)... Martin Mathews shared with me about what a pleasure it has been for him to give back to the St. Louis community for 56 years. We are so very blessed to have him around!...The Rev. Johnny Scott, the very hard-working and dedicated president of the East St. Louis branch of the NAACP, recently was assigned to help kids who needed to perform community service. He says it gives him the opportunity to preach to them and give them a new start!...Emily Pitts was recently named chairperson of the diversity division of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, and she is proud and excited about it!...Webster University’s Beth Stroble says she’s very excited about the university’s new campus in Ghana, where classes started last month.

The ENDANGERED WOLF CENTER is celebrating a small victory in its campaign to protect one of the most critically endangered mammals on the planet. Two pairs of Mexican wolves have been released in an ongoing effort to increase the wolves’ wild population. The historic release of two female wolves (one was born at the Center, the other is the daughter of a male wolf born at the Center) into the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area in Arizona was conducted in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Staffers of the Center traveled from St. Louis to Arizona to serve as ‘pen-sitters’ in preparation for the successful wild release.

Rogue, a genetically valuable Mexican wolf, was born last May and is the most recent birth at the Endangered Wolf Center.

Coach Fisher:

HE START OF THE FOOTBALL season is still months away, but Rams head coach Jeff Fisher doesn’t have much time to spare: Right now, it’s free-agency season, followed by college-draft season and then minicamp, etc. There always is something. It’s hard to find time to be a regular guy when you’re a coach in the NFL. Recently, his office staff carved out a half-hour for Ladue News. He meets me with staff photographer Sarah Crowder in the TV studio of the Rams’ Earth City headquarters. Dressed in an open collar and sport coat, the coach obliges with some poses for the camera. As football coaches go, he’s more comfortable in front of the camera than some I’ve met, but sitting for a photo shoot is never quite normal. Our photographer suggests, “How about a big smile this time?” But Fisher replies with a firm jaw, “This is it.” You might think that all NFL coaches spend every waking moment hyper-focused solely on the minutiae of the sport, but it’s a typecast Fisher tries not to live up to. “You have to make time—that’s an important thing,” he says. “When you leave here, you need to be able to go home. It doesn’t need to be a race to see who can get to the office the earliest or who stays the longest.” And when he does leave the field, I’m surprised to find out, he likes to unwind by cooking. Fisher also was an avid surfer; but even though he grew up in Southern California, he doesn’t look very much like a beach boy. Fisher does look like a football coach. He ruled the sidelines for 16 seasons in Nashville as the coach of the Tennessee Titans before coming to St. Louis in 2012. After spending all that time in Music City, he’s made some friends in the country music business: He’s been “good buddies” with the members of Rascal Flatts and singer Brad Paisley for a long time. He says that getting to know music stars has given him perspective on his own ‘notoriety’ in the sports world. “When other people meet some of these artists, they’ll say to me, I met so and so and he’s just like a normal person. The artist just happens to do something different for a living and that’s what I do: I do something different for a living.” Despite the example, normalcy isn’t something that most people equate with coaching pro football. Most of us ‘normal’ folks will never lead a Super Bowl team onto the field like Fisher did against the Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV, which, of course, St. Louis ended up winning. When I ask Fisher if he doesn’t have to pinch


“I LOOK FORWARD TO GOING TO WORK EVERY MORNING. WHEN I WAKE UP, I’M MOTIVATED TO— AND THIS SOUNDS KIND OF COACH-ISH—GET BETTER AND WIN EVERY DAY.” himself sometimes to make sure he isn’t dreaming, he quickly responds, “I don’t see it that way— don’t get me wrong, I love what I’m doing. I’m very fortunate,” he says. “I look forward to going to work every morning. When I wake up, I’m motivated to—and this sounds kind of coach-ish—get better and win every day.” The other thing that most people normally don’t have a chance to do is raise substantial amounts of money for charity like Fisher does. “It’s rewarding, it’s needed and it’s an opportunity to take advantage of the position I’m in: to be able to give back to people who are worthwhile and need it,” he says. Each June, Fisher hosts the Coach Fisher &

Friends Celebrity Softball Game, with proceeds benefiting The Backstoppers, Mercy Ministries, Wounded Warrior Project, the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, and The Jack and J.T. Snow Scientific Research Foundation, for which he recently served as honorary chair for the organization’s Adult Easter Egg Hunt. He’s also passionate about his work with Mercy Ministries, an organization that helps young women overcome drug abuse, eating disorders and sex exploitation. “I’ve seen the results first-hand,” he says. “As a matter of fact, my daughter was in a wedding of one of the Ministries’ graduates—it’s real life.” It seems Fisher has settled into St. Louis and is looking forward to his future here. It’s another part of his style that isn’t always the coaching norm: looking long-term instead of only at the next game. “When I made the decision to come here, I had the expectation that I was going to finish here and stay here,” he says. “This is not just a stop along the way—hopefully, this is a permanent thing for me.” The more we talk, the more Fisher comes across as a regular guy. He might like to talk more about normal stuff; but the start of the season is just months away—and there isn’t much time to spare.

YOUNG BASEBALL PLAYER with a broken thumb. A college soccer player with a spinal stress fracture. An 89-year-old swimmer with a strained leg muscle. The specialists at Washington University Orthopedic Injury Clinic, with Barnes-Jewish Hospital, in Chesterfield treat these types of sprains, strains, fractures and more for all ages. The walk-in clinic, which opened in September, offers convenient evening and weekend hours, so when an injury occurs at home, work or a sporting event, patients can walk in to receive timely treatment. “Patients always are seen by an orthopedic specialist when they come in,” notes Dr. Heidi Prather, a physical medicine and rehabilitation


specialist at the clinic. “No appointment is necessary, and our hours are after work and school, which a lot of people need.” A team of 50 physicians, including orthopedic and sports specialists, as well as nurse practitioners and physician assistants, are at the ready to help the individual non-athlete to an entire sports team. The physicians commonly see patients with broken bones, athletic and non-athletic overuse injuries, and back, neck, shoulder, knee, elbow and ankle pain. “We see local athletes to the weekend warrior, and we’ve even had an 89-year-old swimmer,” Prather says. “We treat any orthopedic or musculoskeletal problem a patient has. We have on-site X-rays, bracing, crutches—whatever they need.” And depending on a patient’s diagnosis, the staff can provide a referral to a specialist, such as

Introducing the newlyweds

Lauren Hope Marglous & H. Peter Rawson Steffen


hen it came time to plan their wedding day, Lauren Marglous and H. Peter Steffen wanted to celebrate what was most important: their love for each other. H.P. and Lauren met at a charity event in Chicago, where they both live. “Both our friends dragged us there,” H.P. remembers. Lauren had to leave the event early, but H.P. followed up with an email, and they began dating a few weeks later. In December 2012, H.P. told Lauren he was taking her for a surprise night out. He picked her up with roses and took her to Chicago’s Waldorf Astoria, their favorite hotel. H.P. had flowers, caviar and Champagne ready in their suite, where he dropped to one knee and proposed. “We went to the restaurant there and told anyone who would listen that we had just gotten engaged,” H.P. says. The couple wanted their wedding and reception to be classic, elegant and warm. “We come from close-knit families, and just wanted to showcase our love for each other and for our family and friends,” Lauren says. To honor her late father, the bride wrapped her bouquet with her dad’s handkerchief to hold as she walked down the aisle with her mom. During the part of the ceremony in which the couple drinks wine, they used the same sterling silver goblet from which the bride’s father drank on her parents’ wedding day. “There weren’t a lot of dry eyes,” H.P. says. “I had to hold back my tears of happiness, too.” H.P. designed the chuppah to have a rustic feel, and the couple had 300-pounds of birch logs flown in from Colorado to make it. They loved it so much they had the finished piece rebuilt in the grand ballroom above the main table so they would get to enjoy it during the reception, as well. Guests enjoyed a sit-down dinner featuring a main course of shrimp and beef tenderloin, music from 10-piece band FatPocket and fresh-baked cookies brought in later in the night as a snack. To relax after the wedding, the newlyweds stayed in the presidential suite at The Ritz-Carlton for two days. “The president of Bosnia was staying on the same floor,” H.P. says. “There were Secret Service guys everywhere, and they were joking, You were the ones that bumped the president of Bosnia from the presidential suite!” The couple then went on to honeymoon in Hawaii. “The wedding was our perfect day,” Lauren says. “We’d like to redo it! It’s fun now, looking at pictures and watching the videos, wishing the weekend had never ended. We are so happy.”

LN ’s Best-Dressed 2014

There is so much remarkable style in St. Louis, we thought it was about time to launch our very own best-dressed list. Having great style isn’t just about trends and a shopping obsession—it’s about creativity, individualism and confidence (OK, and a droolworthy closet doesn’t hurt!). These five super-fashionable men and women embody all of those qualities—and then some—to make up LN’s first-ever Best-Dressed List. STORY BY K ATIE YEADON PHOTOS BY WESLEY LAW/ BEAU VIDE PHOTOGR APHY {} APRIL 18, 2014


RETTA LERITZ Design director, Evntiv; Owner, Retta le Ritz, an illustration and design studio Describe your style philosophy. My style is best described as a mix of classic, quirky and confident. I focus on what best fits my shape and what makes me happy. Who is a style icon you admire most? My style icon is my mother: She knows and owns her look, which is unsurpassed. What are your go-to accessories? I don’t have a staple, but I try to accessorize with one statement piece every time I dress—whether it be a great pendant or a show-stopping pair of earrings. Where do you like to do your shopping locally? Byrd, Ivy Hill, and the latest from Wai Ming Where would we find you on a lazy weekend afternoon? My perfect weekend day would consist of a leisurely brunch with friends and an afternoon spent trolling through antique shops and estate sales. What are your hobbies? Anything that allows for me to be creative: cooking, entertaining, drawing or decorating. Most fashionable place in St. Louis? Bar Les Freres, as the crowd is always chic in the most understated and subtle way.


APRIL 18, 2014 {}

DAVID DIENER VP and Relationship Manager, The St. Louis Trust Company Describe your style philosophy. I would call my style, ‘updated preppy.’ My goal is to be classic in my dress, with a twist. I love bright colors. My wardrobe evolves over the years, but there is rarely a drastic change of direction from one year to the next. My philosophy dictates that I buy the highest-quality I can afford, because in the long run, quality turns out to be the best value. Who is a style icon you admire most? Cary Grant What are your go-to accessories? Watches, cuff links and pocket squares What are some fashion staples every man should have? A navy blazer; a well-tailored, two-button business suit with flat-front trousers; a pair of dark blue denim jeans; a wellpolished pair of dress shoes (tie); and a pair of casual shoes (loafer-style). Where do you shop locally? Far and away, Mister Guy is my first choice. Where would we find you on a lazy weekend afternoon? Mister Guy, lunch with friends, on a long walk, or curled up with my three dogs reading a good book. What’s the last good book you’ve read? The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg {} APRIL 18, 2014


ARLENE MAMINTABROWNE Owner, Robust Wine Bar & Catering; Principal, Robust Solutions Who is a style icon you admire most? Audrey Hepburn: She had grace, style, a generous heart and a passion for life. She was beautiful inside and out. What are your go-to accessories? Great jewelry. I love my Laura Kathleen cuff bracelet and the ‘edgy-ness’ of everything Hyper Haute by Erica Dunk. And shoes, glorious shoes: high heels and cowboy boots. Where do you shop? I love supporting local. Ivy Hill’s Hillary Dutcher has a great eye and the staff is outstanding, but I can’t forget Paisley Boutique in Webster Groves, and 10Denza in the CWE is fabulous. Where would we find you on a lazy weekend afternoon? Weekend afternoons are family time, especially Sundays. We love going to brunch and playing outdoors when the weather is nice. What cause are you most passionate about? There are so many great local not-for-profits that my husband, Stanley, and I are proud to support. Children, education and the arts are my focus. Right now, Marygrove has my heart. What’s the last good book you’ve read? I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak. It’s all about a person finding purpose in life. I think everyone can relate to that feeling at some point in their life.

GILBERTO PINELA Marketing Coordinator, Actor, On-Air TV Talent

Describe your style philosophy. I march to the beat of my own drum. I do not subscribe to labels, trends or follow who wears what. My style is first and foremost age-appropriate, and casual for the most part: jeans and T-shirts, and sometimes a sport jacket will do. When required, a classic dark suit and tie are a must. What do you consider fashion staples? For men, white T-shirts (V-neck and crew-neck) are a must. For women, a variety of shoes. Where would we find you on a lazy weekend afternoon? You’ll find me mainly at Tower Grove Park, walking my dog. Or, hanging with my Quincy, Ill., peeps—I like the long country drive on Highway 61. What cause are you most passionate about? PROMO is an organization working day in and day out to fight for the rights of people dealing with discrimination. PROMO advocates for equal rights to all. What are your hobbies? Honestly, I don’t do hobbies well. Get back at me when I am 80, I may have one. I think the word implies that I need to be building, painting or doing something like collecting coins. I am not ready for that yet! What inspires you? The quest to become a better human.

{} APRIL 18, 2014


ANJALI KAMRA Designer, Rungolee Describe your style philosophy. I love the idea of wearing unique pieces with a global, eclectic flair. Throwing on a beautifully embroidered top with a skinny jean during the day, and dressing it up for night with a Morroccan vintage embroidered clutch and high heels—that’s my idea of effortless, chic style! Who is a style icon you admire most? Jackie O, though I love the whole ‘Jackie-O-meets-Jaipur’ vibe: taking something eclectic and streamlining it with a simple timeless silhouette—that is what I love! What are your go-to accessories? Vintage Indian jewelry, one-of-a-kind clutches I designed from gorgeous fabrics found in the souks of Morrocco or the markets in India, and of course, my nude, patent-leather, rock-stud Valentino flats! What are some fashion staples that every stylish person should have? For the ladies, an embroidered, feminine blouse, a pair of black leather jeans for a little edge, and a pair of Valentino flats. For the men, a well-tailored shirt, a cashmere sleeveless vest, a tailored sharkskin velvet blazer—all layered up together and worn with a Paul Smith chocolate suede boot. What cause are you most passionate about? Both my husband and I are passionate about education and the arts, and we invest a lot of our time and energy into these two areas. 32

procedure. “We pinpoint (a patient’s) problem and we’re able to address it in one surgery,” he says. This surgical option creates a permanent result for patients, as opposed to the lifestyle change that a CPAP entails—which includes wearing the facial equipment every night and packing it with you every time you travel, Movahed notes. “The airway has a proper opening, and they will never have to worry about it again. For people who have a CPAP and are not complying with it, as well as those who are misdiagnosed or have had the wrong procedures done for them, this would help correct their problem.” In addition to resolving their sleep apnea, he adds, “The majority of patients, within 6 months after surgery, require lower doses of their blood pressure medication, or none at all. This should be augmented with good diet and exercise, as well.” When patients come in for a sleep apnea-related procedure, Movahed begins with a thorough and comprehensive evaluation of the airway. “With Continued on page 69

igh blood pressure. High cholesterol. Chronic fatigue. These symptoms and more can be signs of untreated sleep apnea. “Given that obesity has gone up substantially in this country, a lot of patients are suffering from undiagnosed sleep apnea. It’s not necessarily caused by a higher BMI; it could be an anatomical issue as well,” says Dr. Reza Movahed, a surgeon at Oral Facial Surgery Institute & Implant Center. “They’re dealing with all these symptoms—or if they are diagnosed, they have to go through the huge lifestyle change of having a CPAP, which is a device that keeps them breathing at night.” For these patients, a new surgical option— advancement and counterclockwise rotation of the occlusal plane—moves the jaw to create a larger airway, often with better medical and aesthetic results than traditional surgical methods, Mohaved says. He studied the technique during a fellowship with Dr. Larry Wolford at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, and is not aware of any other surgeons in the Midwest who perform this

Dr. GoulD is reGarDeD as one of the nations’ foremost balloon sinus Dilation experts.

james d. gould, m.d., f.a.c.s.

JAMES D. GOULD, M.D., F.A.C.S. St. LOUiS SinUS CEntEr & SynErGy Ent SpECiALiStS


board-certified otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist), Dr. James Gould is the founder, owner and medical director of Synergy ENT Specialists and St. Louis Sinus Center. With special expertise, advanced training, and more than 15 years of experience in allergy and rhinology, Dr. Gould is regarded as an international expert and pioneer of in-office balloon sinus dilation, also known as balloon sinuplasty.

Dr. Gould was a principal investigator of a recently published, groundbreaking study known as REMODEL. The study compared in-office balloon sinus dilation to sinus surgery performed in the operating room. The results demonstrated in-office balloon sinus dilation to be superior to sinus surgery, offering faster recovery time, less post-treatment medications and fewer follow-up procedures.

Sinusitis afflicts more than 35 million people in the United States each year. Sinusitis symptoms include facial pain/ pressure, congestion, nasal drainage, headache and lack of energy – all having a major impact on quality of life. Balloon sinus dilation is a simple, quick office procedure designed to re-open blocked sinuses, restore natural sinus ventilation, and reverse the sinusitis cycle.

Recently, Dr. Gould was a guest speaker and panelist at two international rhinology meetings. In February, he performed an in-office balloon sinus dilation procedure while streaming live, over the internet, for his colleagues across the country to observe his techniques. Also, to demonstrate how simple and easy this procedure is, Dr. Gould performed the procedure live on the set of Great Day St. Louis.

“The St. Louis Sinus Center was developed to give patients suffering from sinus and allergy problems access to the most advanced sinus care in the Midwest Region,” Dr. Gould says.

Dr. Gould is a fellow of the American Rhinologic Society, American College of Surgeons, American Academy of Otolaryngology and a member of American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy.

The St. Louis Sinus is recognized as a National Center of Excellence for in-office balloon sinus dilation. Regularly, surgeons travel across the country to observe and learn Dr. Gould’s techniques for in-office balloon sinus dilation. Dr. Gould shares his experience and best practices in the hopes that more patients can benefit from this proven technology.

Dr. Gould maintains a state-of-the-art practice with offices in St. Louis and Festus. Dr. Gould is regarded as one of the nations’ foremost balloon sinus dilation experts.

Built Around You


A Gathering Place


The crème de la crème of local kitchens will be on display during the upcoming Junior League of St. Louis A Gathering Place Kitchen Tour. Before the tour begins on Saturday, April 26, take a peek inside the featured homes; they’re sure to leave you saying, Ooh la la!


A Kitchen in Chesterfield


HIS CONTEMPORARY U-SHAPED KITCHEN FEATURES A stainless steel focal point: the island countertop. “The cabinetry was a combination of a slab door with a Takase Teak finish, and a painted slab door in Polar White,” says Joe Kunz, a designer with Beck/ Allen Cabinetry. For this project, Kunz also worked with interior designer Julie Abner. Continued on page 44 {} APRIL 18, 2014


HOME Continued from page 43 A Kitchen in Des Peres


A Kitchen in Creve Coeur


T WAS A VERY DATED KITCHEN, AND THE goal was to make it more open to the family room,” says Jenny Rausch, owner of Karr Bick Kitchen & Bath. Off-white cabinetry surrounds the kitchen, with some featuring antique mirror fronts. The perimeter cabinets are topped with a real quartzite countertop and accented by a patterned marble and glass backsplash.


April 18, 2014    {}


HIS KITCHEN STARTED AS “A PINK, PUSHbutton, all-electric GE design, which included the GE metal cabinets,” says homeowners Walt and Maryann Alles, who worked with designer Patricia Martineau of Patricia Marie Designs. Post-renovation, the kitchen features modern amenities such as a warming drawer, double oven and pot-filling faucet, among other things. “The kitchen and breakfast nook became one, and the original family room—which was a separate, walled room—unifies the casual dining area as the hearth room.”

A Kitchen in the Central West End


OLOR IS THE NAME OF THE GAME IN this kitchen, which features three countertop types (wood, granite and style stone) and two cabinetry colors (a soft, sage green and cream). “We didn’t want to depart too much from the vintage feel of the home, but they wanted a real up-to-date look,” says Dana King, owner of NEXT Project Studio and Amish Modern. Little details were taken into consideration in this project, including outlets, which are located underneath the cabinets so as not to obstruct the backsplash. King also explains that the lighting was meticulously placed, including an intentional avoidance from the tray ceiling. “We avoided putting any can lights in the tray ceiling so it’s clean and beautiful.”

A Kitchen in Creve Coeur (Left)


HIS HOUSE HAS A MORE TUDOR feel, so we wanted to make sure the kitchen followed suit,” says Jenny Rausch of Karr Bick Kitchen & Bath. “There was a bar and a bathroom in the middle of that kitchen, so it was divided in almost half,” she explains. “We took the whole center out and moved the bar to the wall; added a door to the outside; and gave him an island that he didn’t have before.” Both sinks match the countertops surrounding them—granite on the island and limestone on the perimeter. A travertine backsplash is nestled between the nutmeg-hued cabinetry.

HEN THE SELECTED backsplash is in the color ‘Wasabi,’ you’ve got to know it will be the standout aspect of the space. The glazed ceramic backsplash is striped with floating shelves for a clean look. Karr Bick Kitchen & Bath’s Jenny Rausch explains that the homeowner desired a really clean kitchen. “But her house is old; it’s a clean, white kitchen with nice contrast on the countertops and this great color on the backsplash tile.” Other features in the space include wood flooring and quartz countertops.

A Kitchen in Richmond Heights



E TOOK AN EXISTING space and enlarged it,” says president of Beck/Allen Cabinetry, Mike Beck, who brought the kitchen and the sunroom together. This Tuscanstyle kitchen includes amble prep space and a spacious farm house sink. Around the kitchen are knotty alder cabinets with applied molding on the flat-panel doors in a walnut hue with a black glaze. The homeowner, Mary Tramelli, was the lead designer on the project.

Darling Daisies from South Africa By Pat Raven, Ph.D. and Julie Hess

The common name African daisy has been applied to almost every plant in the aster family that has come to horticulture from South Africa. The name has been used for Gerbera, Osteospermum, Arctotis and Dimorphotheca interchangeably, so we should think of it more as descriptive of a large group of plants, not one single genus. With this broad linguistic sweep, we gain hundreds of lively and colorful groundcovers and tender shrubs wonderfully adapted to our Missouri summer gardens. Visit any nursery or garden center today, and you will meet many of these excellent South African selections.


The Original African Daisy – Gerbera My grandmother grew classic Gerbera daisies in her coastal Florida perennial bed. She would use them as cut flowers for the center of the dining room table. We have many more choices of Gerberas to grow today, thanks to a vigorous history of hybridization between Gerbera jamesonii and G.viridifolia. One of the most popular South African plants, Gerbera daisies are easy to grow as Continued on page 48

a houseplant or in a Missouri summer garden. For several years, mine have survived the mild string of winters with thick mulch and returned to bloom again. This year, I’ll have the opportunity to change colors when replanting as there is no chance they survived the temperatures this past winter. Look for flashy new hybrids with clear, vibrant colors and zippy two-tones, brights with dark centers surrounded by halos of white or yellow or spiky spider-form petals for a pompom look. Keep them all dead -headed for constant bloom, and use milkshake straws to straighten curvy stems in arrangements. The African Daisy Now — Arctotis Arctotis probably gets the most votes for the name African daisy. It offers wonderful, trailing, silvery foliage with Gerbera daisy-like flowers for spring and fall bloom. Not winter-hardy for us, but successful as an annual, the ‘Ravers’ series offers some fabulous, rich colors. The Namaqua Daisy — Gazania Namaqualand is famous for the spring and summer carpets of flowers with postcard-perfect views. I’ve had the great fortune of being there in the African spring (October) and seen Gazania in its native habitat. This is a great annual garden plant for us, with roots that knit the soil together and a ‘plays-well-with-others’ attitude. Perfect for that hot, dry strip along the driveway, Gazanias will grow in some pretty tough conditions. The Cape Daisy — Osteospermum The Cape daisy or sun daisy, Osteospermum, is a tender perennial we use in St. Louis as an annual. They can be grown from seed or bought as bedding starts. With about 35 species in South Africa, many horticultural hybrids and selections have been made. Current selections have been chosen for continuous bloom and will fill in our summer pots and borders with constant color. Just never let them dry out completely as it derails the flowering cycle. Julie likes O. barberiae ‘Purple Mountain’ and rates the bloom best in spring and fall. The Cape Marigold — Dimorphotheca Another African daisy, known as the Cape marigold, Dimorphotheca sinuata, is a fabulous veldt plant that performs well on dry, gritty soils. Happy on sandy or stony ground, they are perfect for our hot summer gardens. The large, bright flowers close at night and on cloudy days and come in cheerful yellows, oranges, apricots and soft whites. Low, spreading branches with elegant silvery leaves spill gracefully over retaining walls, rock garden slopes or from hanging baskets.

The Ice Daisy — Delosperma Last year, I searched for tough, deer-resistant, groundcovers and discovered the hardy ice plant Delosperma at Bowood Farms. Delosperma has tiny jelly-bean-like leaves with a silvery sheen. ‘Fire Spinner’, the cultivar I selected, has warm red petals that shade into hot orange at the tips and look like tiny fireworks on the darker foliage. Once established, this high African mountain selection, recently introduced by Denver Botanical Garden, is very drought-tolerant and hardy. Now in its second full season, this lovely low-growing emerald green mat soon will be covered again with tangerine stars. Still fairly new in our area, Julie Hess also has had good success with it at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The African Shrub Daisy — Felicia True, clear blue is a very difficult color to find for our summer gardens. Most blues tend to the purple side and do not marry well with many of the hot summer colors. ‘Cape Town Blue’ Felicia is an excellent clean fresh blue flowered tender shrub daisy that spans spring in to early summer bloom and fits well in color pots as a great filler. The cool cornflower blue, yellow-eyed flowers blend well with everything. Growing about a foot tall by mid-season, the fine foliage knits nicely with larger textured plants. Felicia ‘Cape Town Blue’ is an annual that bridges the seasons and, if deadheaded, and protected from the blazing summer sun, will sometimes re-bloom in the fall.

A Stroll in the Garden District owned them for generations. During Mardi Gras season, more of the flags marking residences of past and present Mardi Gras royalty are flown here than in any other neighborhood. Some are in the hands of newer owners. Author Anne Rice, a native, sold hers after her husband died. St. Louisan John Goodman owns a house here, and so does actor Nicolas Cage. Even before any celebrities arrived, though, movie companies loved filming in the Garden District. And their long-term rentals of some of these houses paid for necessary major renovations, as the warm, damp climate and tropical storms take their toll on buildings more than a century old. Tour buses are not allowed inside the

boundaries of the District, and the single bed and breakfast was grandfathered in when the zoning laws began. Plan on walking, or, if you must, a private car. But the wonderful St. Charles Avenue streetcar is the way to go. Alight at Washington Street and head toward the river, and you’re in the heart of things. Keep an eye on the trees along St. Charles around here; there are beads hanging in the trees, thrown from floats that pass on Mardi Gras. At Prytania Street, an old skating rink has been turned into a shopping precinct, with a good coffee shop and an excellent bookshop. On Continued on page 58

S THERE A BETTER AMERICAN CITY FOR walking than New Orleans? And is there a better place to escape buzzy French Quarter activity than the Garden District? In the early 19th century, a plantation was sold to make acreage for the affluent Americans and British that were flocking to the city. Those big houses on large lots (thus, the name Garden District) remain, but in the years after the Civil War, the lots were subdivided for only slightly smaller homes. Fewer gardens, yes; but more architecture, more stories, more history await. These homes remain well-loved and generally well cared for. Some are still in families who have


The St. Charles Streetcar

Continued from page 57 the opposite corner is Lafayette Cemetery #1, Lafayette being the separate city this originally was. The cemetery is safe to visit; if the gates are open, feel free. The aqua blue and white building across from the cemetery is Commander’s Palace. Commander’s, as it’s referred to, is a story in itself. At lunch, it’s a particularly good place to watch the locals in their native habitat. Make a reservation, wear nice-casual clothing, and have a long, leisurely meal during or before your walk. You may have luck without calling first, but best not to chance it. No matter what, have the bread pudding souffle, which will float into your mouth. From here, a stroll in any direction will work. Keep your eye open for details like large iron basins used as bases for fountains — they’re sugar-cooking kettles from the sugar-plantation days, or a modern reproduction. If a walking tour seems like a good idea, several companies offer them. Historic New Orleans Tours, which I tried, is serious about its work: The guide was a former professor at Tulane, a fourth-generation New Orleanean and a preservationist, who did a great job. If you continue toward the river—Magazine Street, parallel to St. Charles—is the boundary,

To Be Continued… IT SEEMS MOST OF WHAT COMES OUT OF Hollywood these days are sequels and prequels… and remakes and re-imaginings and reinterpretations. It’s green, actually: Reuse, reduce, recycle. If there’s an additional dollar to be made…like I said, green. So it may surprise you to know that at some point, industry executives dropped the ball. Either that or they exercised some discretion and halted work on an ill-conceived sequel. Perhaps someone learned a valuable lesson from Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo and Weekend at Bernie’s 2. Believe it or not, according to, these sequels were actually in the works until the plug— for whatever reason—was pulled. Forrest Gump 2: Gump and Co. Honestly, there was so much going on in the first movie, I can’t imagine what was left to film. You can only cover so many decades. E.T. II: Nocturnal Fears As a child, I’d often hoped for E.T.’s return. Sure, that freakishly adorable alien was ‘right here’ in our hearts, but I wanted to see that darn bike fly again. As time passed, it occurred to me that the perfect sequel would be a film where Elliott is an off-track adult with a family of his own and E.T. returns. The sequel they actually had planned involved evil aliens invading and abducting children. Go big or go home. Fortunately, they went home. The Breakfast Club 2 At least, there was no ridiculous subtitle following the colon. The film would have reconnected with the high-school outcasts: the nerd (Anthony Michael Hall), the princess (Molly Ringwald), the jock (Emilio Estevez), the rebel (Judd Nelson) and the poet (Ally Sheedy). The film fell through when star Judd Nelson had a very public falling out with writer/director John Hughes. Maybe Nelson knew he was the only one who wouldn’t have a career going forward. Gladiator 2 Always an interesting undertaking when the main character dies in the first film, rumor has it

Debbie Baldwin


this sequel involved Russell Crowe’s Maximus in the afterlife. Fortunately, everyone came to their senses. Napoleon Dynamite 2 I guess there is only so much pot people can smoke. Kill Bill Vol. 3 This may be the only regrettable decision on this list. Tarantino planned to follow Vernita Green’s (Vivica A. Fox) daughter as she grows up, with a life mission to avenge her mother’s death and kill The Bride (Uma Thurman). It’s not too late. Elf 2 It may not star Will Ferrell, but this will happen—trust me. Ferris Bueller 2: Another Day Off OK, maybe not another day off in high school or even college, but the idea of Ferris as a buttonedup lawyer who has lost his zest for life taking a day off, that’s appealing. Maybe Ferris’ hypochondriac buddy Cameron (Alan Ruck) changed the course of his life when he liberated his father’s Ferrari from its glass garage. Maybe sister Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) ran off with the bad boy (Charlie Sheen) in the police station. Think of the possibilities. One need only look at the American Pie franchise or Ocean’s Eleven to see the lengths to which Hollywood is willing to go to milk a concept. For now, everything seems fine on the sequel front. If Stallone tries to turn Grudge Match into another Rocky franchise, we may have a problem.




Ernest & Celestine ANIMATED ART RATING: 8 out of 10


HAVE TO ADMIT I’VE been curious about this film. As an Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature, I thought to myself that it must drive these animators nuts to create something so precious, only to be trampled by the Goliath that is Disney. Nothing against Frozen, it’s a delightful film, but this is art. Under the wintry city, the mice scurry and work, doing their best to avoid the ravenous grasp of the bears above. Celestine (Mackenzie Foy) is not your typical mouse. She’s artistic and sensitive. When she is almost gobbled up by the equally nonconforming bear Ernest (Forest Whitaker), the two become fast friends. Of course like all rule-bending friendships, they quickly fall prey to both disapproving species. Watching this film is like reading a beautifully illustrated children’s book. It’s charming and beautiful with a touching and simple message. This is the absolute perfect film for a grandparent-grandchild outing.

Draft Day




G R E AT S P O R T S movie needs to have three things: an unsung hero, a heart-stopping victory and an inspirational message. I am happy to report that this movie has those three components. And fortunately, great acting and compelling subplots are not a requirement for a great sports film. As GM of the Cleveland Browns, Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) has a lot on his plate. His secret co-worker girlfriend, Ali (Jennifer Garner), is unexpectedly pregnant. His work relations are strained after he was forced to fire his own father as head coach and hire the mouthy Coach Penn (Denis Leary); plus, it’s draft day. Sonny has less than 12 hours to come up with the team he wants, while, at the same time, appeasing the Browns’ spotlight-seeking owner, Anthony Molina (Frank Langella). Other than the handful of main characters, the acting is atrocious. The charming appeal of having actual sports personalities (and Sean Combs) play small roles and cameos is outweighed by the lead-worded drag the performances create. Keep an eye on actor Josh Pence, who plays hotshot quarterback Bo Callahan: I see a big career in his future. Despite the overall acting and the less-than-compelling subplot involving Sonny’s personal life, the film is terrific. It’s smart, engaging, uplifting. It’s great for all ages.




A dark, brooding Irish musician is at an unpleasant crossroads in his life. His girlfriend left Dublin six months ago for New York City, and he’s been carrying the torch for her ever since. One night at a local pub, the ‘Guy’ meets ‘Girl,’ a Czech immigrant who sells flowers by day and plays the piano for passion, something her father taught her before he killed himself. Girl is as cheerful and upbeat as Guy is morose and taciturn, and these opposites quickly are attracted to each other. Like Guy, though, Girl has a past and it’s not something she is willing to shake off easily. With her encouragement, Guy puts together a ragtag band and makes an audition CD for a Dublin record producer. Girl believes that Guy has a talent for writing heartfelt songs that speak not only to his former girlfriend but to a more universal audience. Will her faith be rewarded?

HIGHLIGHTS: You’re likely never to have seen anything quite like Once, the multiple Tony Award-winning show, which is based on a 2007 film and debuted on Broadway two years ago. From the moment you walk into the auditorium, you know that something unusual is transpiring. The set for Once is a Dublin bar, where the audience is encouraged to saunter onto the stage and mingle with the performers before the show even begins.

COMPANY: Touring Company VENUE: Fox Theatre, 527 N. Grand Blvd. DATES: Through April 20 TICKETS: $25-$66; 534-1111 or RATING: A 4.5 on a scale of 1-to-5. More reviews available at

Truth is, that pre-show concert is one of the highlights of the entire evening. Crisply directed by John Tiffany, Once features the sensational voice of Dani de Waal as Girl. Stuart Ward as Guy displays fine chemistry opposite de Waal’s Girl, conveying Guy’s loneliness and awkwardness. The large supporting cast is comprised of musicians who can play a mean fiddle, drum up a fierce beat and caress a cello. Whether you’re looking at Czech subtitles as Girl’s family speaks in English (with one poignant exception), watching a trio of musicians step in unison or observing a dozen characters standing in seeming isolation from each other, Once is consistently innovative and inventive. One might prefer more up-tempo numbers and a less syrupy script in parts, but there’s no disputing the unique soul of Once.

Ted Swindley’s Greatest Hit BY MARK BRETZ

Q. What gave you the idea to do this show? A. People would naturally think that I was a huge Patsy Cline fan, but I barely knew about her. When I wrote the show, I was running the Stages Theater in Houston, where I had been since 1978 and which is still operating today. In 1988, we had a downturn in the economy; and I needed a show to generate money. I had a singer there named Kayce Glasse who had been saying for two years, Do a Patsy Cline show! I would say, Who is Patsy Cline?, to which she would answer, You know, the Crazy song.

We had to put a show together very quickly and I asked Kayce if she knew Patsy’s music. “I know every note,” she told me. Q. How did you pick the theme? A. I asked Kayce to give me all of her albums and cassettes so that I could listen all weekend to come up with an idea for a show. I became a rabid fan over that weekend. I decided that I didn’t want to do a revue, and I didn’t want to do a bio musical. There was this question in my brain about whether she had ever played Houston. I did a little research and found out about the Esquire Ballroom (in Houston), and found an interview with Louise (Seger) in a biography. At the end of that interview, they printed the first letter that Louise received from Patsy in 1961. I felt that there was a woman who was a bona fide star in country music, and this letter was so personable and so human, with a wonderful anecdote about (Patsy getting back to her) ironing. It was a human-interest story right here in Houston. Q. So how did that information inspire you? A. I put together a one-act performance in about two weeks and it ran for five months. I didn’t think that it would go any further because it was a ‘local’ story. Three years later, I moved back to my home state of South Carolina and the board of directors in Greenville asked me to do a musical. That’s when I turned it into what it is today. It opened on the Fourth of July and sold out. The day after, the box office went crazy, and we had to hire three more people to handle the ticket volume. Then, I took it to the Soleto Festival in Charleston, where it was the hit of the festival.

Q. Why do you think this show so enduring and beloved? A. Patsy recorded great music. It’s amazing when you listen to how well her music still stands up today. The second reason, I think, is that it has universal appeal. Who has not had the fantasy of meeting the idol of your dreams and taking them home to sit across from you at your kitchen table? This show touches on the universality of fanship turning into a friendship. ALWAYS…PATSY CLINE WHEN: April 22 through June 15 WHERE: The Playhouse at Westport Plaza COST: $50-$60 INFO: 821-2407 or

HEN STAGES ST. LOUIS OPENED ITS 2013 season with Always…Patsy Cline, executive producer Jack Lane knew something special was happening. The tribute to the late country music artist had the largest advance sales in STAGES’ 27-year history, and sold out most of the performances in its monthlong run. “We could run this all summer,” Lane said then, indicating that STAGES was looking at other venues to showcase playwright Ted Swindley’s energetic, offbeat paean to Cline and her down-home relationship with a Houston fan named Louise Seger. STAGES found that locale. Now, Always…Patsy Cline is back to St. Louis for an encore production featuring Jacqueline Petroccia as Patsy Cline, in a role that brought her a Best Actress in a Musical nomination by the St. Louis Theater Circle, and St. Louis actress Zoe Vonder Haar as Louise Seger, for which she won the 2014 St. Louis Theater Circle Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical. LN recently spoke with playwright, producer and director Swindley about his smashingly successful show, one of the top 10 mostproduced shows in the last 20 years.


Dance, Antonio, Dance!



T THE TENDER AGE OF 16, Antonio Douthit-Boyd experienced the epic performance mastery that is Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. The physicality, emotion and human connection he felt from the professional dancers was unmatched. In that moment, the St. Louis native knew what he wanted to do with his life. He followed his dream and achieved the rare feat of being chosen for the world-famous dance company. Douthit-Boyd took a breather from his hectic Alvin Ailey tour schedule to talk with LN about his first dance steps in St. Louis, bringing the company’s new tour back to his hometown through Dance St. Louis, and carrying real-life experiences onto some of the most acclaimed international stages.

Where has your dance career taken you? I started dancing when I was 16 at COCA, then I attended the North Carolina School of the Arts for a year, and I went to Dance Theatre of Harlem, where I was a soloist for three years. Now, I’ve been with Alvin Ailey for 11 years. How did you come to be in the Alvin Ailey company? One of the dancers left to go on tour for Beyoncé, so Alvin Ailey had an emergency audition. Out of this sea of guys, I was the only one picked and got to join right away. So, my joining Alvin Ailey is all thanks to Beyoncé! Describe the experience of being on the international stage as part of Alvin Ailey. When I first started dancing, I thought it would be amazing to see all these fantastic places. And now I’m blessed to be able to travel from China to Denmark, and perform for the queen there. To be able to share what we experience in America with these other countries and hear the crowd’s response back to the company is just phenomenal. Describe your rehearsal and workout schedules. Our choreographer Robert Battle keeps us very, very busy. We’ve been on tour since the last week of January and we won’t touch down for a break until August. But we try to do swimming, karate, yoga, cardio and weight-training, so our bodies stay in tip-top shape—and it’s important to take advantage of sleeping whenever you have time.

How do you stay on top of your dance game? You always take classes and look everywhere around you, take the good and bad from every situation, and learn from the person dancing next to you or the even the person who might be struggling on something. You stay open to change, and figure out something different you can work on each year to stay relevant within the company and within your own struggles of being a better dancer. Describe the experience of performing live onstage as part of Alvin Ailey. When I’m onstage, even after performing with Alvin Ailey all these years, I have these weird butterflies. But once the curtain goes up, the lights go on, and the audience gets to enjoy the experience with us, it’s otherworldly. I can’t really put it into words. What do you hope audiences feel when you are performing in St. Louis? I hope they can take pride in watching their own St. Louis product onstage. We have all the training you need in St. Louis, and I hope they can see that the arts community we built here is actually doing a great service. Tell us about the highlights of this year’s show. For Lift, you just have to see it to get the nature of the beast. You have all these men on stage barechested, and there’s the musicality and physicality of it all. And Alicia Graf Mack and I will be partnering to dance Pas de Duke, which I love. I also will be doing I Wanna Be Ready—that’s going to be exciting. It’s going to be a fantastic performance.

How is Alvin Ailey at a different level than other dance companies? People should come just to experience great theater and great dance. The company is better than ever. Whether you’re seeing Alvin Ailey for the first time or 10th time, you will really enjoy what the company is doing these days.



What is your first memory of dancing? I was always the kid dancing everywhere whenever I heard music—from Michael Jackson to Whitney Houston. Everyone was always like, Oh Antonio, dance!

Oceano Bistro in Chesterfield is going through some more changes. It’s been announced that the restaurant has been purchased by an investor group and will be reopening on Friday, May 9, as Bishop’s Post. The moniker is a combo of the names of managing partner BEN BISHOP and Chesterfield pioneer Justus Post, who once owned the land the eatery sits on. Chef DAVE ROOK, who recently took over the Oceano kitchen, will remain in the post of executive chef. The new menu is described as being classic, traditional fare. The Clayton Oceano Bistro was not affected by the sale and will remain as-is. A couple of new openings to report: Three Flags Tavern is serving up fine food and drink at 4940 Southwest Ave.; and Athlete Eats is now doing business at 2837 Cherokee Street, featuring healthy fare for breakfast and lunch. Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria now is offering a new lunch special for daytime noshers. The menu features salads, pizzas and pastas (yes, the famous fried artichoke salad, meatball pizza and wild boar pappardelle all are available). Guests can select any two dishes from the three categories for $13.95. Outdoor dining is a big part of the Katie’s experience, and the restaurant’s popular patio soon will feature a new pergola and a vegetable garden, which will supply veggies for the restaurant’s daily specials. Congrats to the folks at Mike Shannon’s Grill in Edwardsville, Ill., which just celebrated its first anniversary in business. Kudos to local chefs CASSY VIRES of Home Wine Kitchen and BEN POREMBA of Elaia & Olio. Both were among 10 semifinalists for Food & Wine magazine’s annual People’s Best New Chef: Midwest award. The title finally was bestowed on Chef CARL THORNE-THOMSEN of Story in Kansas City.

801 Chophouse

A Classic at The Crescent


HE 801 RESTAURANT GROUP, based out of Iowa, recently opened its latest steakhouse concept location, 801 Chophouse, at The Crescent in Clayton in the former Araka space. Those who bemoan the opening of yet another out-of-town chain—or another Clayton steakhouse for that matter—should take pause, because 801 definitely is a cut or two above the rest. The interior of 801 bears little resemblance to its Araka days. Gone is the sleek, modern decor, replaced by sumptuous dark wood, green leather upholstery and a massive oval bar in the middle of the main dining room. Servers and bartenders all wear ties and matching green jackets, hearkening back to a time when these positions were more afforded the respect due professionals than is oftentimes the case nowadays. The overall effect is both elegant and inviting, as well as indicative of the fine-dining experience about to commence. The 801 menu is full of all of the expected steakhouse favorites, from prime cuts to all manner of fresh seafood, and options like pork and lamb chops. Several cuts are brought out table-side for inspection before ordering, always a nice touch. To start, we actually bypassed the ‘official’ starters (though the Roasted Marrow Bones were hard to resist) in favor of the Petite Shellfish Platter ($40) on the Fresh List, an absolutely glorious assortment of jumbo shrimp, oysters and king crab, artfully arranged on crushed ice. Sometimes it’s easy to forget just how delicious truly fresh seafood can be on the day it arrives. The crab especially was so tender and sweet, no additional condiments were needed. Of course, we ordered meat, specifically the 12-oz New York Strip Steak ($42) and the Filet Medallions ($38). In true steakhouse style, sides are ordered separately and served family-style. At 801, they’re also offered in half-sized portions for those wanting to try a few. We went with the smaller sizes of the Green Beans ($6)—crisp and fresh, accented with bits of bacon — and the Pan Roasted Mushrooms ($7), then splurged with the One Pound Baked Potato ($8), one of the only items that can’t be halved. Both the steak and the filets were cooked to absolute perfection, medium-rare and rare respectively. Often sauces can overwhelm the meat, but the filets came with a tarragon burgundy sauce that was dark and bold, with notes of char and chocolate that provided a rich accent to the filets. These big


flavors require a hearty wine for company, and both dishes paired most excellently with a glass of 2011 Napa Slingshot Cabernet Sauvignon ($13). When visiting 801, dessert is an imperative, so save a bit of room for The Gran Marnier Souffle ($13), the restaurant’s signature sweet. Kudos to the 801 pastry chef for this delight, served with a selection of vanilla anglaise, chocolate sauce and berry compote. A successful souffle is hard to master, and this one is a study in how it should be done. Sweet, warm and delicately puffed. The restaurant also has a three-course Sunday Prix Fixe option, served from 4 to 9 p.m., that offers a nice selection of salads, entrees and desserts for $33. If you have a taste for prime cuts—or just desire a top-flight fine dining experience—801 Chophouse should be on your list.

Bringing Nutrition to the Neighborhood


Derek Lauer and Melvin White

“THIS PARTNERSHIP WILL... BRING BETTER NUTRITION, ECONOMIC ACTIVITY, AND HIGH-TECH JOBS AND TRAINING TO AN IMPOVERISHED NEIGHBORHOOD.” then after the culinary school is operating, we will open the Market Café, which will give the local neighborhood a place to purchase vegetables, as well as sandwiches and other lighter fare that is being produced right there in the building!” Lauer says the current markets in the area are quick-shop types and the food products that they offer are not healthy choices. “There are only a couple of corner markets, and they are very far apart, hard to get to and have very little offerings that are of very low-quality,” he notes. And with this project, a farmers market also will open Aug. 23 in Legacy Park at the second annual Legacy Walk, commemorating the March on Washington. Future plans of Beloved Streets of America include taking the St. Louis model to 16 other

cities in the U.S., starting with the urban farming piece, Lauer says. “We are revitalizing old buildings, using local labor, partnering with the educational institutions, providing job-training and ultimately being able to provide food in neighborhoods that are nutritional deserts.” {} APRIL 18, 2014



F YOU HAPPEN TO BE DRIVING ALONG the 8-mile stretch of Martin Luther King Boulevard that begins in Wellston and ends in downtown St. Louis, it shouldn’t take too long to realize that there aren’t a lot of options for purchasing fresh, healthy foods in and around the neighborhood. But this urban food desert is on the verge of change—thanks to the efforts of the Beloved Streets of America and its vision of community stabilization, according to Derek Lauer, who is the architect coordinating the master-planning for the nonprofit. “Beloved Streets of America was started by a gentleman named Melvin White, and it was his vision to renovate every Martin Luther King Boulevard in cities throughout this nation,” Lauer explains. “He’s been working on this in St. Louis for about six years now, and I became involved a few years ago to first help design Legacy Park as a part of Legacy Corner.” Located at 5901 Martin Luther King Blvd., Lauer points out that Legacy Corner is an important building that will serve as the beginning point of this revitalization project. Not only will it house the office for Beloved Streets of America, but it also will have a space for urban agriculture, as well as a culinary school that will support a market/café. According to Lauer, the nonprofit’s vision includes taking old buildings and converting them with local labor into places for food production, not just for these neighborhoods, but for others in the larger St. Louis community. “The urban agriculture aspect has really taken off!” he notes. “We will be partnering with Washington University as a guaranteed purchaser of the vegetables and herbs that are hydroponically grown in what was previously an abandoned building for use in its campus restaurants, and with its food services in time for the upcoming fall semester. This partnership will help to reduce Washington University’s carbon footprint and bring better nutrition, economic activity, and high-tech jobs and training to an impoverished neighborhood.” Lauer describes the process of growing the food as using a nutrient film technique that covers the roots and delivers nutrients to the plants. The system will include solar power and wind power, and heat that is generated by the lighting will be reclaimed to help turn the wind turbines. And once the nutrient-filled water used for the vegetables is depleted, it will then be recycled to grow ornamental plants for use along the streetscape of Martin Luther King Boulevard as a part of the beautification aspect of the project. “Once we are producing vegetables, we also will establish the culinary school, which will educate young urban people—who are out of work, out of school and out of prison—and provide them with a job skill and a career, as well as a place to live, as there will be some apartment units in Legacy Corner, too,” Lauer says. “And

Medical Matters Q:

I’ve been getting Botox® injections to improve fine lines, but the effects are no longer as dramatic as I would like. I’ve heard of a mini-facelift. What exactly is this and is it safe to do after a few years of Botox therapy?

A mini-facelift is a lift that focuses on restoring the jawline and tightening the loose skin beneath the chin (submental area). For the appropriate patient, it is a good alternative to a full facelift.

Gregory Branham, MD

Washington University Facial Plastic Surgery Center West County and Center for Advanced Medicine

(314) 996-3880

Previous Botox injections do not affect the ability or safety of the patient to have a facelift. In fact, because Botox and other fillers are used primarily in the upper face, they are actually a useful adjunct to enhance rejuvenation of the upper and mid-face in conjunction with the mini-facelift. An ideal candidate for a mini-facelift is at or near ideal body weight and has minimal banding in the neck. Banding, an effect of platysma muscle sliding forward with age, appears as long vertical strands that start in the submental area and extend down the neck, usually on either side of the midline. The typical mini-facelift patient is often between the ages of 40 and 50. He or she is more focused

on catching problems at an earlier stage and maintaining a fresh appearance, rather than restoring youthfulness. Because the mini-facelift uses smaller incisions, it is not appropriate for patients who may need significant liposuction to achieve his or her desired effect, or patients who have a lot of lax skin in the submental area. The more skin that needs to be removed, the longer the incision must be to properly re-drape and smooth the skin for a natural result. For patients with considerable sagging in the midfacial area or a significant amount of jowl at the jawline, a full facelift is a preferred alternative and will yield a better result. Discuss your goals with a facial plastic surgeon Together, you can develop a safe and effective treatment plan tailored to help you look and feel your best. {} APRIL 18, 2014

Washington University Orthopedic Injury Clinic continued from page 20 college. “We treated her and she was able to return (to playing) and her team won the state championship,” Prather explains. A Washington University Physician for 15 years, Prather enjoys the opportunity to form long-term relationships with patients of the clinic. “I like evaluating the whole person—for instance, if it’s a knee problem, you also look at the hip and foot.” And English came to St. Louis to help start the injury clinic last year. She notes that the staff and hours make the clinic unique. “Patients are offered orthopedic specialist-level care in a timely manner, and the ability to follow up with another specialist.” The injury clinic staff sees about 200 patients a month. “And with a deep department of orthopedic specialists,” Prather says, “we have plenty of room to grow that number.”

ORAL FACIAL SURGERY INSTITUTE continued from page 36 virtual surgical planning, we have the ability to do the surgery ahead of time on the computer, and create a profile so we can give the patient improved facial harmony,” he says. “Everything is very cutting-edge about what we do.” The evaluation also is based on a CT scan, clinical evaluation, and evaluation for possible TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorders), which could impact the stability of the jaw, he says. “It’s like the foundation of a house: We check what kind of structure we’re dealing with. We have to make sure everything is stable and we’re building on a good foundation. That’s why we do a comprehensive evaluation of everything—we take the big picture into account to make sure there will be a good outcome.” Recovery for the procedure typically is about two to three weeks, and the outcome and recovery time are improved for younger patients, he adds.

But he notes all aspects of the business were retained, from its staff members to its product lines, services and showroom location. Parent company Fischer Lumber, headquartered in Alton, Ill., since 1941, has the same family business philosophy as the Marvin family, O’Brien says. “The business has always been family-owned, and Fischer has the same ideas about treating customers the right way.” So whether you’re looking for a fabulous front entrance to up your home’s curb appeal or new windows for better energy-efficiency, Fischer Window & Door Store strives to build for your ideal lifestyle.
