CONTENTS EDITOR’S NOTE

SOCIETY

THANK YOU. THE PHRASE IS SO COMMON, WE don’t even give it a second thought . But expressing sincere gratitude takes special effort; and here at LN, we delight in the ways our readers tell us they like what

they see. No matter how it is expressed (an email or handwritten note— or even with cupcakes), know that the gesture is absolutely appreciated. But personally, there is no experience more humbling than to be on the receiving end of gratitude from a charitable organization. For instance, Siteman Cancer Center presented us with a plaque that read, Because of your support, together, we’re making an impact on cancer. And the St. Louis Holocaust Museum recently told us, We sold out our dinner. Thanks, in big part, to you. My impulse always is to say, We should be thanking YOU. We appreciate the fact that every week, you trust Ladue News to be your storyteller, as well as your advocate for St. Louis’ many worthy causes. So simply put, Thank YOU.

LADUE NEWS SHOW HOUSE PREVIEW Twenty of St. Louis’ top design firms are breathing new life into one of the area’s most unique architectural gems. The stunning results will be unveiled during the Ladue News 2012 William Bernoudy Designer Show House tour, running Oct. 5 to 21 to benefit four local charities.

GRAPE MASTERS When you pour a glass of Missouri-made wine, you may think about the aromas, flavors and complexities that emerge from the bottle, but do you consider the person behind that creation? Get to know more about the area winemakers producing some of your favorite wines.

LADUE LIPS The Champagne will flow, and plenty of ‘shoe treats’ will be on-hand as Saks Fifth Avenue prepares to christen its designer shoe collection, 10022-SHOE, and unveils its newly remodeled store. It will feature items from iconic designers like Fendi, Manolo Blahnik, Prada and Valentino. Exclusive sneak peeks begin later next month.

PUBLISHER’S LETTER

CONTR IBU TOR S FRANK CUSUMANO CUSUMANO IS A 14-TIME EMMY AWARD winner on KSDK-TV, and he also can be heard on 590 KFNS Radio. He says the best-kept secret in St. Louis is the Golfport Driving Range in Maryland Heights. “The best driving range in town. A day at Golfport is a day in heaven.”

MATT SORRELL A LIFELONG RESIDENT OF ST. LOUIS, Sorrell has been writing about the culinary scene for 12 years. “I think the best-kept secret in St. Louis is our cocktail scene,” he says. “There’s no excuse to drink anything mixed from a bag with are so many great bartenders in The Lou.”

CONNIE MITCHELL

IF YOU NOTICED SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS EDITION of Ladue News, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. We’ve redesigned the publication from cover to cover, starting with the familiar Ladue News logo. It’s just one of several important changes we’ve made throughout the paper with the hope of enhancing your reading experience every time you pick up a copy. Rest assured that we’ve retained the things you love most and expect to find in Ladue News—we’ve simply improved the packaging to give the paper a sleeker, more modern design that appeals to our sophisticated and discerning audience. For those readers interested in the details, the major changes include new typography, an updated, more vibrant color palette and more open, eyepleasing pages. In addition, we’ve created four distinctive departments—LN Society, Living, Diversions and Real Estate—that we think will give you more of a sense of ‘place’ as you page through the publication. And because we live in a digital world, we’ve also improved the LN online experience for those readers who prefer to get their Ladue News that way. Going forward, we will be enhancing our digital presence with more robust social media and video components designed to complement our website and recently introduced iPad app. When all is said and done, we hope you find the visual changes we made to Ladue News an enhancement to an already great media brand that’s now celebrating its 31st year of publication. We’re proud of where we’ve been, but we’re also really excited about where we’re going—and we’re thrilled that you’ll be coming along with us.

A NATIVE OF ST. CHARLES, MITCHELL HAS been writing for more than 15 years. She says the Missouri state parks system is the area’s best-kept secret. “Castlewood and Route 66 State Parks, for instance, offer great opportunities to get outdoors and take a healthy hike, ride a bike or go fishing. Being in nature is good for body and soul.” LIKE OUR PAGE AT FACEBOOK.COM/LADUENEWS PUBLISHER JUSTIN NANGLE EDITORIAL editor-in-chief TRISH MUYCO-TOBIN

DIANE’S SCOOP Terri Clinton, wife of the late Jerry Clinton of Grey Eagle Distributing, is keeping busy these days giving back to the community…Lodging Hospitality Management CEO Bob and Kathy O’Loughlin just came back from a restful 10-day visit in Switzerland…Cyndie and Dr. Herluf Lund are sad/happy empty-nesters as their twin son and daughter are off to opposite ends of the country for college (Boston and Colorado Springs)… Betty Goran, her mother, Sylvia Hirsch, and daughter, JJ Krane—three generations were in attendance!...Don Wiegand, world famous sculptor and artist, presented his lapel pin award, which he describes as “An interpretation of the sculptor sculpting the sculptor!” Don also gives away his own creation, The Spirit of Hope Award Medal, to men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and other distinguished Americans and organizations whose patriotism and service reflect that of Bob Hope. Asked why he gives his work away, he replied, “You can’t put a price on freedom—it’s not for sale!”

Foundation Fighting Blindness

DINING IN THE DARK

S

T. LOUIS DINING IN THE DARK, which was held at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac, offered a glimpse into the lives of the blind—all in an effort to raise $475,000 for sightsaving research. Dining in the Dark is a distinctive sensory-awareness experience in which guests dine in complete darkness. For about 30 minutes, attendees enjoyed their entrée using only their senses of smell, sound, taste and touch. Cardinals GM John Mozeliak chaired the event, and St. Louisans Jerry Kent and David Peacock were honored.

BREAKTHROUGH, my brain tumor is gone, and I’m still here.

John and Melissa Inkley, Jack Inkley

Tamara Ramage was never sick, until debilitating headaches brought her to Barnes-Jewish Hospital, where Washington University neurosurgeons discovered the cause – a brain tumor.Tamara was devastated. But she found hope in our iMRI suite. With intraoperative MRI technology – a breakthrough that lets neurosurgeons scan the brain during surgery – her tumor was removed the first time, without harming healthy tissue. Today, Tamara is looking forward to a bright future.

Stone Sea will be located in a new courtyard that joins the museum’s Main Building and the new East Building, set to open next June. The artist will be hard at work this fall installing the sculpture, a series of 24, 10-foot-high arches constructed of roughly cut Missouri limestone.

The Saint Louis Zoo is being lauded for its national and international conservation programs. The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) has honored the Zoo with the 2012 International Conservation Award. The top award, which recognizes exceptional efforts toward habitat preservation, species restoration and support of biodiversity in the wild, went to the Zoo and its partners for the Grevy’s Zebra Trust. Found only in northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia, there are fewer than 2,500 Grevy’s zebras left, and the population is threatened by loss of habitat and access to water, illegal killing disease and drought. A second recognition for the Zoo came in the form of the Edward H. Bean Award, one of the AZA’s most historic honors, for its ‘Propagation, Head-start and Conservation Program for the Ozark Hellbender.’

WENTY OF ST. LOUIS’ TOP design firms are breathing new life into one of the area’s most unique architectural gems. The stunning results will be unveiled during the Ladue News 2012 William Bernoudy Designer Show House tour, running Oct. 5 to 21 to benefit four local charities. The second annual LN Show House, a Mid-Century Modern home at 13428 Conway Road in Town & Country, was designed by internationally renowned architect William Bernoudy (1910-1988) and completed in 1961. The landmark estate is for sale through Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty. Elegant, one-of-a-kind furnishings, brilliant use of space and color and the artwork of acclaimed St. Louis native Ernest Trova are

just some of the highlights. Some of the city’s most creative and talented interior designers and landscapers have spent two months piecing together the perfect accents for the 6,400-square-foot, 20-room contemporary country retreat, which includes four bedrooms—a master suite, two children’s rooms and a guest suite; a kitchen; media lounge; two galleries; five full and three halfbaths; and living, dining, breakfast and family rooms, set on 18 lush acres. The kitchen design is conceptual—with three designers’ boards on display for attendees to vote on their favorite before the vision is implemented in the space, says LN Show House design chair Stacey Goltermann. “Because there are both traditional and modern architectural elements, designers can go with either design. It will be fun to see how

it evolves both ways.” Admission is $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Funds will benefit four local nonprofits: Angels’ Arms, Animal Protective Association of Missouri, SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center and Shakespeare Festival St. Louis. Tour hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. The house is closed Monday. A preview party will be held from 6-9 p.m. Oct. 4. The cost is $75; and $50 for ages 35 and younger. Sponsors of the LN Show House are: U.S. Bank, platinum sponsor; Dielmann Sotheby’s, presenting sponsor; and The Trova Project, partner. For advance tickets, visit laduenews. com or call 269-8836. For more information about 13428 Conway Road, call Ted Wight of Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty at 607-5555.

CHARITIES

 

 Proceeds from the Ladue News Show House will go to four St. Louis nonprofits: Angelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Arms, Animal Protective Association of Missouri, SSM Cardinal Glennon Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medical Center and Shakespeare Festival St. Louis. Dozens of volunteers from the nonprofits, as well as the National Charity Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s St. Louis Chapter, have donated their time to help prep the home and will serve as docents during the tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will really help bring to life the vision of the designer for each room,â&#x20AC;? says volunteer chair Lisa Malone. A number of local companies also have donated a day of volunteering to the project, including Dielmann Sothebyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s International Realty, Landmarks Association of St. Louis, Modern STL and Neiman Marcus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People love to volunteer because they love to be a part of their community and feel like they are part of something bigger,â&#x20AC;? Malone notes. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more about the LN Show Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charitable beneficiaries:

Because of ANGELSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ARMS, many local foster families have a roof over their heads and access to a multitude of life-changing resources. The organization, which began in 2003, provides nine homes throughout St. Louisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; from North and South counties to Ballwin and St. Charles. Foster parents and up to six foster childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;babies to college-ageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are supported in each home, allowing sibling groups to stay together. Additionally, the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staffers and its thousands of volunteers aid the families with daily expenses and extras. Proceeds from the LN Show House will help the organization with house payments, maintenance and family resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The need is so great,â&#x20AC;? says executive director and founder Bess Wilfong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need more properties that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just houses, but homes that allow children to be part of a family.â&#x20AC;? The privately funded organization is supported by community fundraisers, including its largest, Stepping Out for the Angels Dinner Auction, that annually draws 500 attendees and raises $200,000. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will be Nov. 17 at Kemp Auto Museum.

SSM CARDINAL GLENNON CHILDRENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S MEDICAL CENTER annually treats 200,000 children, regardless of their familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to pay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They come to us with illnessesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from the flu to life-threatening cancers and heart diseaseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that need the expertise and support of our world-class pediatric, faith-filled hospital,â&#x20AC;? says Dan Buck, executive director of Cardinal Glennon Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation. Buck adds that the medical center treats the child, as well as the whole family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for parents and siblings to see their child struggle, and we give them the hope and faith they need to get through it.â&#x20AC;? LN Show House proceeds will help the foundation fund the medical centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new $6.5 million radiology center, which is set for completion in January. The centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cutting-edge MRI and CT imaging will deliver significantly lower doses of radiation, minimizing harmful side effects for children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A key to great health care is great imaging because it leads to better results in the operating room,â&#x20AC;? Buck notes. The medical centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foundation is supported by more than 30 annual community events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of the events are put on by grateful familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;their level of gratitude pushes them to want to give back,â&#x20AC;? Buck says.

SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL ST. LOUIS (SFSL) is one of only a handful of live theater groups in the nation making art accessible to audiences by offering free shows. The organization has annually produced a William Shakespeare play in Forest Park for the past 12 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We provide high-quality professional theater experiences for free,â&#x20AC;? says executive director Rick Dildine. The performances are put together by 575 volunteers and draw 60,000 attendeesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;3,000 people per night during each productionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-week run. SFSL also provides year-round programming in 125 schools and in the streets of St. Louis. During the yearround education tour, the organization reaches 40,000 students with two 50-minute Shakespeare adaptations or scenes and a 50-minute workshop based on the time, history and language of the Bard. The group also has used Shakespeare plays to develop an anti-bullying workshop.

LN Show House proceeds will help the organization fund its 2013 production, Twelfth Night, one of Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedies. The nonprofit is supported through community contributions, including its largest fundraising event, The Tempest Ball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are truly an organization that is funded by the people and for the people,â&#x20AC;? Dildine says.

ANIMAL PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION OF MISSOURI (APAMO) is celebrating its 90th year of animal adoption and education. The Brentwood-based organization cares for 10,000 animals each year through its shelter and veterinary clinic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We pride ourselves on being customer-service-friendly to make good matches for the animals and their new owners,â&#x20AC;? says executive director Steve Kaufman. As one of the smallest shelters in the area, the exposure from this project will help make the community aware there are many pets that need good homes, Kaufman adds. In addition to adoption services, the organization offers animal welfare and safety classes for all ages at its shelter and throughout the community. Funds from the LN Show House will go directly to animal careâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;helping APAMO feed and care for the animals who are housed anywhere from a few days to even a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here, we want them to be well-taken care of,â&#x20AC;? Kaufman says.

EDERICO BAROCCI IS THE TYPE OF artist who often is mentioned in art history books, but never the center of attention. St. Louis will get its first real look at the Renaissance painter when the Saint Louis Art Museum opens its exhibition, Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master, which runs from Oct. 21 through Jan. 20. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This time in Italy is filled with incredible painters, and we focus on the big three: Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael, but there are many other fascinating personalities and artists, and Barocci falls into that category,â&#x20AC;? says exhibition curator Judith Mann. Barocci is

Federico Barocci, Italian, c.1533â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1612; Self-Portrait, c.1595â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1600; oil on paper mounted on canvas; 16 5/8 x 13 inches; Istituti museale della Soprintendenza Speciale per il Polo Museale Fiorentino; photo: Scala/ Ministero per i Beni e le AttivitĂ culturali/Art Resource, NY

best known for his exuberant use of color, and was considered one of the most accomplished colorists of his age, Mann notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old master painting is like cooking: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a question of how well you could prepare color and your process for preparing a painting. He had a painstaking process that ensured these absolutely beautiful

colors that have survived well over time.â&#x20AC;? The painter also was known for his many drawings, which are featured prominently in the exhibition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had the opportunity to bring the drawings together with the paintings for which they were made, so people can see and have an understanding of the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thought process. They helped him make decisions about poses, lighting, color, expression and gesture. That was our objectiveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to get inside his mind,â&#x20AC;? Mann says. More than 1,500 Barocci drawings survive, which is a rarity for this time period, she notes, adding the reason is probably the drawingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; high quality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Barocciâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is a sad one in many ways,â&#x20AC;? Mann says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was born in this little hill town not far from Venice, and he goes to Romeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which everybody wanted to do at the time. He went in the 1550s and again in the 1560s, and he came down with a terrible gastrointestinal disorder. Many peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m among themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;believe he was poisoned by his rivals.â&#x20AC;? At the time, Rome was filled with talented artists who would go to great lengths to make their mark.

Committed for the Long Haul

HE NUMBERS SHOW THAT WOMEN MAKE UP 45 percent of the workforce and control 95 percent of financial decisions in households across America. “Women are more prone to worry about their families, health care costs and the ability to meet their financial goals, so the value of a trusted adviser serves a significant need for women,” says complex director Carole Wentz, who notes that Merrill Lynch has 28 female financial advisors serving the local market. The significant role of women at Merrill Lynch is part of its commitment to offering a highly skilled and diverse group of professionals to clients, Wentz adds. More than 40 percent of the company’s local advisers have helped customers for 20-plus years. “And more than 50 percent of our advisers have multiple professional designations, which demonstrates the commitment they have to better serve our clients every day,” Wentz says. Merrill Lynch’s diverse employee base takes a holistic approach to client service, including customCarole Wentz ized financial strategizing—from wealth manageTo help clients navigate today’s ment, credit and lending, complex financial climate, Merrill estate planning, investLynch offers a diverse group of ments and life insurance skilled advisers to protect wealth, as to trust services.

For instance, they can scan a check on their iPhone or iPad to transfer funds.” While cutting-edge technology has made financial strategizing easy and efficient, Wentz notes that the Merrill Lynch branches are always still open for the cases where nothing beats a face-to-face meeting. “After all, this is their money and their financial future.”

Is an Annuity for You?

W

HEN KEN AND LORI Heise start discussing the possibility of purchasing an annuity with a client, sometimes they have to start by dispelling a few myths. “Maybe I didn’t like a Chevrolet 30 years ago, but now it’s a whole different car,” Lori Heise says. “For some people, by closing their minds, they might be putting themselves in jeopardy when there could be a better solution.” Ken Heise, who co-founded Heise Advisory Group with his wife, says that for many of their clients—most of whom are retired or about to retire—annuities are a good option for preserving their assets and generating income. “The No. 1 way to guarantee income for life is to use annuities,” he says, adding that many clients can be hesitant because of stories about “the old immediate annuities; they think you turn money over to an insurance company and never see it again. There are newer annuities that have come out in the last four to five years, and even the last 15 years. We refer to them as the new gold standard in income and cash-flow planning.” But every situation is different, and Tom Thornton, VP and regional sales manager for BMO Harris Financial Advisors, says when choosing an annuity or any type of financial investment, first consider your growth needs, risk tolerance, time horizon and potential liquidity needs. “A

Important Questions to Ask Your Lender Before Applying for a Mortgage 1. Does the lender have the ability to service the loan themselves for up to 40 years? 2. Will the servicing of the loan be sold? 3. Could the servicing of the loan be sold to an out of town lender with no local presence? 4. Is there any prepayment penalty on the first or 2nd mortgages? 5. What are the closing costs? 6. Is the mortgage a balloon note? 7. Is there an origination fee, brokerage fee or any points? 8. How long will the loan approval take? 9. Are you able to call your loan officer on weekends or outside of normal banking hours?

Timing &Tact M

ONEY CAN BE AN UNCOMFORTABLE, negative or even taboo topic for families. So when it comes to parents telling their children about an inheritance, local financial advisers say ‘the right time’ is different for every family. Depending on the child, the financial gift can signal a windfall or a burden. While telling a child who is too young can result in a lack of discipline and appreciation, sharing the news too late can leave an heir unduly concerned for the future. “Start talking to your children early about simple things—saving, spending and charitable giving,” says David Ott of Acropolis Investment Management. “Hopefully, you will raise them to have the right attitudes about money in general, so if and when you do let them know about an inheritance, they are more ready.” To instill childhood lessons about money, parents should watch for teachable moments during everyday life. “When a child asks for pricey

toy, don’t say yes right away. Explain you can pay half if he or she pays half,” says Maurice Quiroga of PNC. An allowance, as well as matching your child dollar-for-dollar in a college savings account, also can help them begin to understand finances, adds Donald Kukla of Moneta Group. In addition, advisers note it is crucial to discuss philanthropy. “Talk with them about why you work hard to give back money, such as church donations,” Quiroga says. According to a 2011 SmartMoney report, 52 percent of parents with assets of $3 million or more have not discussed finances or how they should be used with their children. For many families, a good time to discuss an inheritance is when a child has become a financially independent adult—living, working and paying bills on their own. “Be frank, open and honest, and make sure you share your family values, along with the facts about the actual money,” Ott notes. Key facts to discuss include the name of the executor of the estate, financial,

tax and legal adviser contacts and the location of important documents and safety deposit boxes, notes Brian Pultman of Wells Fargo Advisors. A wealth management firm can help ease the transition through a series of meetings at different stages in the child’s life. “It’s not just one conversation, but a long-term process of educating children,” says David Krauss of Commerce Trust Company. In addition to financial advisers, many local firms have psychologists available to help counsel families through the process. Advisers also can help families avoid financial missteps. For example, Krauss cautions parents against creating undue expectations in today’s uncertain economy. “Stock markets go up and down, and an inheritance may change.” Lastly, ensure family members stay up to speed along the way, Pultman says. “You need to make sure everyone involved knows your financial plans so there are no conflicts.”

T’S ALMOST HIGH NOON AND A showdown looms. You can almost see the dusty brown sky, the squinting eyes, the dirt-covered boots and long coats with anxious hands and twitching fingers dangling from the sleeves. Six-shooters ready to be pulled, one set of eyes blinks…then, in an instant, a quick draw, gun fire, and one man falls. The other spins his pistol on his triggerfinger and slides it back into its holster. OK, so maybe it’s not quite an Old West shootout, but as two rival outlet mall developers square off in the Chesterfield Valley, the stakes have rarely been higher. Both the Simon Property Group and Taubman Centers, Inc. are moving forward with plans to build upscale outlet malls just a couple of miles apart. Both have had groundbreaking ceremonies, and are ready to invest tens of millions of dollars. Both have said they’ll open next year, and each insists that when the dust clears, they’ll be the last man standing. Taubman’s Prestige Outlets is beginning to emerge just off Highway 40 at the Boone’s Crossing exit. The latest word is that the center will open in August 2013. A bit farther west near the Boone Bridge, ground also is moving at the Simon project, St. Louis Premium Outlets, with opening planned for fall 2013. So the boots are on the ground while a war of words rages on. Taubman made one of its top planners available for an interview with Ladue News. Director of Development Nico Schultz says his company’s plan is so far ahead of the rivals that he doesn’t think it will be much of a fight. “I don’t see it as a showdown, I see it as one person BY PAUL BROWN

is ready, the other person is not,” he says. “It would be a pretty quick resolution.” Rival Simon Property is playing its cards much closer to the vest. They referred all of our inquiries to a New Yorkbased PR firm which responded with carefully worded written statement that read, in part, We look forward to bringing a high fashion outlet shopping experience to St. Louis, much like we have done over the past 30 years in top markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Las Vegas, Orlando, Tokyo and Seoul. We are planning a September 2013 opening for St. Louis Premium Outlets. The statement went on to list its big guns, retailers that Simon says are committed to the project, names like Saks Fifth Avenue, Jones New York and Brooks Brothers, just to name a few. Some of those same retailers also are on Taubman’s list, indicating that stores are waiting to see which mall ultimately gets built. According to observers, there are a couple of scenarios that could develop. One is that both developers will complete their projects, and two malls will open and the free market will decide if either one or both survive. The city’s planning and development services director, Aimee Nassif, says at this point, they are waiting and watching like everybody else. “Just as we have 70 restaurants in Chesterfield Valley, or two gas stations on the same corner, it’s a free market—free enterprise.” She says another more likely scenario is that at the 11th hour, one of the two developers will realize they are too far behind and simply bug out. So the stage is set, the guns are ready and it’s almost high noon in the Valley. Don’t blink.

LEGAL CORNER: IDENTITY THEFT

Protect Yourself

S

OMEONE COULD 1) STEAL YOUR WALLET. 2) Snatch preapproved credit card applications from your mailbox. 3) Use a phony telemarketing scheme to gather personal data. 4) Or exploit information shared on the Internet. “Identity theft is becoming more of a complicated issue than it used to be, and the misuse of existing accounts and new accounts can have serious financial consequences,” says Erika Wentzel of Mahley Wentzel Law and Mediation Group. According to a study by Javelin Strategy & Research, more than 11.6 million Americans were victims of identity fraud in 2011. The losses from that fraud amount to approximately $37 billion. While in general, consumers are not responsible for fraudulent transactions, such as misuse of credit cards, “when an identity is stolen—for substantial periods of time—they have to go through credit collection calls, losses in credit rating, inability to obtain services or loans, Continued on page 75

IF YOU BECOME A VICTIM OF IDENTITY THEFT, WENTZEL DETAILS THE FIRST NECESSARY STEPS IN THE PROCESS TO ADDRESS THE SITUATION AND ITS POTENTIAL CREDIT AND FINANCIAL IMPACT: 1. Call each credit reporting agency—Equifax, Experian and Trans Union—and place an initial fraud alert on your account. 2. Review your free credit report to make sure there is nothing else going on. Just because you noticed one issue, doesn’t mean there aren’t 10 more. 3. Contact all creditors and financial institutions beyond just the ones involved in the fraudulent transactions

and let them know what is happening. Check if they have an identity theft form. 4. You also should report the situation to the Federal Trade Commission via online or telephone, then fill out the FTC’s identity theft affidavit 5. Get a police report to help verify the authenticity of the situation, and submit it to each creditor, along with the FTC affidavit and a letter disputing the debt.

Q: A:

Dear Dr. Ridenour, What questions should I ask my Cosmetic Surgeon?

According to an August 23rd blog in NEWBEAUTY.com, “Only 3.5 percent of doctors in the U.S. are truly qualified to perform aesthetic procedures.” That is really bad news when you consider the number of untrained or inadequately trained doctors who are performing plastic surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists call the cosmetic enhancement industry the "wild west" of medicine because the number of doctors performing surgical procedures without proper qualifications keeps climbing. A plastic surgeon from La Jolla, California told NEWBEAUTY that doctors are leaving managed care programs and other specialties and entering into cosmetic procedures with little to no training. In most states, including Missouri, it's legal for doctors without formal or appropriate training to perform cosmetic procedures. Patients think the industry is regulated, but there are no good regulations in place. For example, there’s nothing to stop your dentist, family practice doctor or gynecologist from advertising and performing Botox injections. The bottom line is that doctors can perform cosmetic procedures without rigorous training and board certification in that particular area of expertise. So, as a consumer, it’s up to you to be aware of what qualifies a doctor to perform cosmetic procedures on you or a loved one. If you’re undergoing plastic surgery, check your doctor’s credentials. Not only make sure the doctor is board-certified, but know what specialty board qualifies them to perform your procedure. Physicians certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery are specially trained to perform cosmetic surgery on the face and neck. Doctors certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery perform cosmetic procures on the body and the face. Oculoplastic surgeons are qualified to perform cosmetic and reconstructive procedures on the eyelids Surgery isn’t the only thing to worry about. Lasers procedures, injectable fillers and Botox injections in untrained hands can result in scars, injuries or infections.Ask these questions if you are about to have a cosmetic procedure: 1. What is your board certification? 2. How long have you been doing this? 3. How many times have you done this before? 4. If anesthesia is needed, who is the anesthesia provider? 5. Do you have privileges at an accredited hospital for the procedure you are going to perform? 6. What are the pros and cons of the procedure? 7. Who is doing the procedure?

KIDS

A CHILDHOOD OBESITY

Lead by Example

LMOST ONE IN THREE ADULT Missourians is obese, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As one of the fattest states in the nation, it’s no surprise that obesity is becoming an increasing problem for our children, too. “Children with obesity are at risk for the same diseases as adults, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol,” says Dr. Melissa Rickerson, a pediatrician with Mercy Clinic Pediatrics St. Charles and Mercy Children’s Hospital. These are almost always preventable conditions, and parents are the examples kids look to when learning about healthy choices. “Parents and educators are in a unique role to teach children about nutrition by role-modeling healthy eating habits themselves,” says Kathryn Helling, a registered dietitian with SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. “Children will develop their eating habits based on what they are exposed to in their home and school environments. If they see their parents and teachers eating well, they will be motivated to do the same.” Parents have the power to fill the pantry and refrigerator with healthy snacks and ingredients, making a healthy diet a ‘family project,’ points out Dr. Joel Koenig, chief of pediatrics at Missouri Baptist Medical Center. He notes that as children enter puberty, they often become more

self-conscious about weight. However, parents should not place so much emphasis on weight that an adolescent becomes obsessed to the point of developing an eating disorder. Koenig advises using choosemyplate.gov, an interactive website from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to access tips, recipes and games related to healthy eating. He also suggests keeping all food consumption to the kitchen in order to decrease mindless eating while watching television or playing video games. And speaking of TV and video games, parents can limit these sedentary activities. “Physical exercise is key in children maintaining appropriate weights,” Rickerson says. “Gym class is usually not enough, especially since most kids only have gym a couple times a week.” Packing a lunch also provides parents some degree of control. “A healthy school lunch includes a variety of nutrient-rich foods from different food groups, with sources of carbohydrate, protein and fat,” Helling says. “For example, healthy sources of carbohydrate may include fruit, low-fat or fat-free milk, or whole grains. Healthy sources of protein include nuts, beans, lean meats, and low fat or fat free dairy. Finally, sources of healthy fats include avocado, nuts, or natural peanut butter.” “Maintain a positive attitude about living a healthy lifestyle,” Helling adds. “Remember that your children will follow your lead, so set the example you want them to follow.”

LN Parenting ONE THING THAT PARENTS AND KIDS HAVE IN COMMON IS stress. While the sources and reactions may vary, everyone, at some point, experiences undue anxiety. In fact, if one never experiences any anxiety, that is actually a bigger problem than having anxiety. Stress also can be positive: Good stress motivates and energizes kids, and a little ‘fear’ can cause kids to work harder and study more. To understand how stress is impacting your child, it is important to recognize the different types of reactions that one may have. Acute stress is a short-lived response to a particular event such as a big test. It is a very common feeling and, in some cases, can be interpreted as bodily excitement such as the nerves associated with starring in the school play. Chronic stress, on the other hand, is ongoing anxiety. It is not exciting or motivating; rather, it wears on the body and can cause a mental meltdown. If a child is experiencing a high number of acute episodes or is in a chronic state, it is a problem that needs professional assistance. It can, however, be difficult to decipher between problematic behaviors and developmentally appropriate responses because children of different ages react differently to stressful situations. A preschooler may excessively cry, tremble with fright or run aimlessly. During the elementary years, an overly anxious child may demonstrate regressive behaviors, develop irrational fears, or have persistent physical illness such as head and stomach aches. An overly angst-ridden teen may become socially withdrawn, act out or appear frequently confused. Ignoring stress will most likely cause increased anxiety for your son or daughter. However, knowing when to approach your child and what to say might strain your parental nerves. Observe and learn when your kids might be most willing to talk. Is it before bedtime, after dinner or during car rides? Initiate a conversation but avoid flinging questions. Availability provides opportunity for your child to speak with you about any topic. When your child does finally decide it’s time to dialogue—listen. Stop what you are doing and provide your full attention. It can be difficult to avoid strong reactions, but parents should respond with empathy. Parents who minimize their offsprings’ feelings shut the door to future problem-solving sessions. Unfortunately, anxious adolescents turn into anxious adults. And while encouraging conversations is important, kids need to learn ongoing ways to reduce life’s tension. A physical activity or an engaging hobby will take individuals of any age away from the daily grind. Having fun is a powerful mood enhancer. Kids have a lot to worry about, despite the carefree lifestyles we adults think they may lead. A recent survey by the American Psychological Association noted that doing well in school and family finances topped the list of major worries. Whenever there is change, it is important for parents to understand that situational stress is an appropriate and reasonable reaction. If you feel, however, that your child’s anxiety is too intense, lasts longer than it should, or occurs more frequently than is typical, seek further assistance. Your school’s counselor or pediatrician is a great place to find guidance.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for

Lunch? O Healthy Choices at Local Schools

UT WITH THE FRIED FOODS, FATTY MEATS and sugary sweets and in with the whole grains, lean fish and fresh fruit. Local schools have overhauled their lunch menus in an effort to make healthy food accessibleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and enjoyableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for students. Area school chefs say the days of mass production and processed foods have been replaced with daily meal prep, and fresh, whole foods from salad, fruit and deli bars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are changing things because the earlier children learn how to eat well, the better chance we have that they will continue to do this throughout their lives,â&#x20AC;? notes Thomas Jefferson Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive chef Teddy Ivanov. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are concentrating on tasty, home-cooked foods, more vegetables and fruits, and exposure to new and different tastes.â&#x20AC;? At Whitfield School, executive chef Will Matthews oversees every item that comes out of the kitchenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ensuring food is batchcooked each day for freshness versus cooking items ahead of time. The lunch menu includes fresh whole and seasonal fruit and produce, gluten-free and Kosher meals, whole grain breads and low-fat yogurt. Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School also focuses on whole, non-processed foods, with an emphasis on reduced sodium and sugarless sides and desserts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do a lot of skinless chicken Executive chef Teddy Ivanov breast, steamed veggies, pita prepares lunch at Thomas pizza with a low-fat cheese Jefferson School. and baked fish,â&#x20AC;? says director of finance and operations Bob Carr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we only have dessertâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; non-fat yogurtâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;available twice a week.â&#x20AC;? For drinks, the school has substituted soda and fatty milk with 1 percent and skim milk, as well as low-calorie, fruit-flavored water. To ensure the students will eat the healthy meals, local chefs worked with groups of kids and their parents to find out what they enjoyed for lunchtime meals. At Thomas Jefferson School, Ivanov also has taste tests with his daughter, who is â&#x20AC;&#x153;very picky,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of all, I make things look appetizingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;presentation is so important.â&#x20AC;? And City Academyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive chef Patrice Mari always is open to studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; suggestions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to serve a healthier version of something they love anywayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;nachos, pasta or quesadillas. I also try and make the lunchroom experience fun.â&#x20AC;? Mari spices it up by periodically serving different ethnic dishes, from Vietnamese to Spanish and Thai, corresponding with the countries students are learning about in the classroom. With all of these healthy foods made appetizing and fun, local students are sure to eat their vegetables. BY BRITTANY NAY

T HAPPENED AT ALMOST EVERY Westminster Christian Academy baseball game in 2009: Scoutsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; sometimes as many as 25, all behind home plateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;pointing their radar guns at the pitcher. He stood 6 feet, 5 inches tall. He rarely changed expression. He never smiled. He was 17 going on 27. Jacob Turner was locked in. He knew Major League Baseball would be timing and watching almost every pitch he would throw his senior season. Pitchers like Turner donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come along very often. He threw five different pitches for strikes. His fastball was clocked between 90 and 95 miles per hour. He had everything working for him. Besides a steely demeanor and special right arm, he had some coaching that few high school players get to enjoy. Todd Worrell, Andy Benes and Mike Matheny were always around to assist head coach, Rich Gilst. Turner put the package all together and turned himself into one very polished pitching prospect. He signed to play baseball at North Carolina. However, when the Tigers selected him with the ninth pick in the draft and offered him about $6 million, Turner knew college had to be put on hold. He had a rapid rise through the minor leagues, consistently ranking as the No. 1 prospect in the organization. However, when the Tigers needed help this summer, they traded him to the Miami Marlins. Turner is now in the Marlinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; starting rotation; and on Sept. 14, he shut out the NL Central-leading Reds for a career-high seven innings, allowing only two hits. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beginning of something special. Jacob and I talked recently:

Baseball hero? Roger Clemens. He had fire on the mound. Favorite Cardinal player growing up? Albert Pujols. I have faced him twice in the big leagues. He homered off me, too. I got a few texts from my friends giving me a hard time. Biggest thrill in baseball? Major League debut as a Tiger.

How has the money impacted you? Obviously, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an outstanding opportunity to be able to do stuff and help other people less fortunate. It really is a blessing from the Lord. It also takes the pressure off of baseball. It allows me to just focus on trying to improve. How did the trade affect you? It surprised me. But the Tigers gave me opportunities. I am excited. I have a good chance to make my mark (in Miami). What do Kräftig Light beer, the St. Louis Suit Co. and an underground sprinkler system have in common?

What are your goals? Biggest goal is to get better every day. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set numbers goals. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set statistical goals. I just want to get better. If I can do that, the numbers will eventually come.

KEN STÜCKENSCHNEIDER STÜCKENSCHNEIDER DECORATION & DESIGN LN: What’s the best advice you ever received? KS: A professor at New York City’s Pratt Institute (where I earned my master’s) advised: If you are going to draw attention to something, you better make it beautiful. I took 1 it to heart and have never stopped. LN: Which iconic designer best represents your own aesthetic? KS: My work is a blend of Michael Smith’s classic style, Billy Baldwin’s relaxed, casual modernity, and incorporates details like those in the great work of Nancy Lancaster and John Fowler. I also adore the American glamour of Ralph Lauren and the modern traditionalism of my mentor, Robert A.M. Stern. 1 LN: Where do you feel most inspired? KS: I’m most relaxed and inspired at my family’s 100-year-old farm on the plains in central Missouri — the sunlight is incredible. LN: What’s your favorite architectural style? KS: Palladian — anything derived from the great renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. 2 That could be an Italian villa, a Georgian townhouse, a Caribbean plantation great house, or a mansion on the bluffs of the Mississippi. LN: What’s the most beautiful building in St. Louis? KS: Cass Gilbert’s Art Museum, of course. LN: If you could decorate any home, which would it be? KS: St. Louis is filled with beautiful, traditional, rambling English-style Georgian and Tudor houses that I adore updating so they are fresh and inviting for family life. LN: What should no home be without? KS: Fresh flowers, real fires, candlelight, dogs, children and great food. LN: Who’s the best designer in the world right now? KS: I madly follow the work of Stephen Gambrel, 3 a University of Virginia-trained architect with a delightful and irreverent eye for traditional and modern detail; as well as the exotic work of Muriel Brandolini, whose enchanting home I visited on the Upper East Side and which has had a lasting influence on the elegant and unusual architectural finishes I incorporate in my own work. LN: What’s a perfect night out in St. Louis? KS: Old-fashioned cocktails and exquisite appetizers at Taste with my wife, and then taking in an independent film at The Chase, 4 Hi-Pointe, Tivoli or Plaza Frontenac. LN: What’s your favorite movie? KS: The Merchant Ivory film, Howard’s End,4 about the enchantment of a small, English cottage and the spell it casts over all those who visit.


SHOW AND TELL 2

MAGGIE STIEVEN MKS DESIGNS LN: What’s the best advice you ever received? MS: My dad told me that there are about 13 simple words that will help you be successful in life and in busi1 ness: Please, thank you, yes sir, no sir, yes mama, no mama, I’m sorry. LN: What’s your most prized possession? MS: A small oil of a rather large man and woman dancing together. I have it in my hallway. Whenever I pass by it, I smile. LN: Which iconic designer best represents your own aesthetic? MS: Diane Von Furstenburg. 1 LN: Where or when do you feel most inspired? MS: It could be something as simple as going to the fresh floral market or just being out at our family farm in Hermann. But I feel most inspired when I’m around my mom. LN: Favorite architectural style? MS: I’m drawn to the Greek Revival homes. 2 There’s something about the large columns, the painted plaster exterior walls, and the large porches. I also love French chateau architecture. LN: If you could decorate any type of home, which would it be? MS: An old farmhouse. I love restoring old things. 3 LN: What should no home be without? MS: Bookshelves or a display cabinet where you can display your treasures and things you love. LN: What’s your favorite fabric? MS: I love Romo because of the bold graphic designs and rich textures.

THE WINE LIFE

Spain: A Visit to the

Land of GRAPES PAIN IS AN ANCIENT WINE-PRODUCING country and has been making wine for thousands of years. Today, it is bustling with bodegas (wineries) and offers a little of everything when it comes to wine. There are several types of unique grapes and wines being produced throughout the entire country, offering everything from a fruity white wine to a full-bodied, bold red, so there is a wine for every person, at every price range. Although only third in the world for wine production, Spain has the most acres of vineyards with more than 2.9 million acres. Every part of Spain is able to grow grapes, and that they do. Let’s visit the land of grapes. Starting in the very northwest is the damp and wet region of Rias-Baixas, which hangs north of

S

Portugal. It is home to albariño, a white wine that continues to gain popularity here in the U.S. This wine generally has an evocative crisp minerality, bright with prominent grapefruit and pineapple citrus notes. Moving across to the east and slightly south, we reach Rueda, known for its benchmark white grape, verdejo. It can be anything from slightly uneventful to bigger with layers of character, but also is used as a blend. It is crisp and often reminiscent of a sauvignon blanc. Ribera del Duero, slightly east, is almost entirely devoted to red wine, with tempranillo the most widely planted grape variety. Big, beefy and deeply colored with a firm tannin structure, the wines have complex aromas and can age

gracefully. Ribera del Duero also is home to one of Spain’s most famous bodegas, Vega Sicilia, which has been around about 150 years. Continuing east is the celebrated region of Rioja. Rioja is tempranillo’s true home and the grape is classified here according to the oak treatment and aging: Crianza, Crianza Reserva and Gran Reserva. The Duero river runs from here through Portugal and the Douro Valley and finally to the west coast, which is the heart of famed port wine production. Travel farther east and it’s cava country. Almost all cava is produced in Catalonia, especially in the premiere region of Penedés, although eight different provinces around the area south of the Pyrenees also produce quality cava, a sparkling wine made in the same method as Champagne. Ranging from simple to complex, cavas are very versatile and go very well with many foods, especially tapas. Just south in Catalonia is the appellation of Priorat, a rugged, wildly beautiful region with steep-sided mountains and an abundance of sunshine. Priorat made a big splash in the wine world with minerally reds that many consider among Spain’s finest wines. By blending traditional grapes with main grapes such as cabernet, syrah and merlot, it resulted in a ripe, rich flamboyant wine that was awarded high ratings from notable wine publications around the world. In the middle of Spain is where things start heating up. La Mancha has a warm climate and huge wine production. The quality here has a vast range and mostly inexpensive, but as in other regions, it has some quality winemakers. The most widely planted grape, airen, is grown in the central plains, and is used mostly for the production of brandy. Speaking of brandy, a visit to Spain would be remiss without mentioning sherry, a complex, esoteric fortified wine with the versatility to go from apéritif to table wine to after-dinner sipper. Almost all sherries are made from the palomino fino, a white grape indigenous to the area. Spain is experiencing a wine revolution that no other wine country has ever experienced in history, and has become very successful in exporting wines due to quality for the price. The other important part is its range in styles from traditional tempranillo to softer garnacha (grenache) or the flashy blends of Priorat. Now, more than ever, is the time to start exploring Spanish wine, learning what it is all about and reaping the rewards. Salud! TASTING TIP: Oxidized wine occurs when too much oxygen has been exposed to the wine. The result is a loss of color, flavor and aroma. A newly opened bottle of wine generally will only last two days. So if you try and drink the remainder of a bottle—depending on how full it is—after two days, it is probably oxidized. WINE RECOMMENDATION: Try an albarino or verdejo for white; they both pair well with seafood dishes especially shellfish. If you want a more traditional red, go with a crianza, tempranillo or for a more New World-style, try Priorat.

Grape Masters WHEN YOU POUR A GLASS OF MISSOURI-MADE WINE, YOU MAY THINK ABOUT THE AROMAS, flavors and complexities that emerge from the bottle, but do you consider the person behind that creation? Get to know more about the area winemakers producing some of your favorite wines. SHAUN TURNBULL, STONE HILL WINERY Shaun Turnbull has made wine in his native South Africa, Virginia and Napa Valley, but it was in Missouri where he found a home. “South Africa and Napa are very commercial wine areas, and I’m not a commercial guy—I like to follow my own trend. In Missouri, you can create your own identity.” In October, Turnbull will mark seven years at Stone Hill Winery, where he is teamed with senior winemaker David Johnson and oenologist Tavis Harris. Looking for a career that appealed to him, he received a degree in cellar technology at Elsenburg Agricultural College in Cape Town before coming to the U.S. “I found winemaking fit my personality well—it involves creativity,

technical skills and hands-on work—a little bit of everything.” At Stone Hill, Turnbull produces about 17 different wines that cover the spectrum from dry whites and reds to rosés, sparkling wines and ports. A majority are fruitier, aromatic wines, a style that stems from the challenging Midwest climate, Turnbull explains. The winemaker also aims to express the German heritage of Stone Hill, established in Hermann in 1847, and stay true to the individuality of Missouri wine. “People try to compare local wines to ones found on the West Coast, but it has its own character—we want to make it taste like Missouri wine, not like something you can find anywhere else.”

Paul LeRoy was slated to become a welder’s apprentice after high school. Luckily for oenophiles, he instead turned his after-school work at Hermannhof Vineyards into a full-time job. Over the next 30 years, LeRoy moved up the ranks from cellar hand to vineyard manager, learning along the way and taking over as winemaker in 1994. Today, he leads the way at the Dierberg family-owned winery, balancing consumers’ interests with vineyard viability. “We look at market trends and try to choose the grape varietals that fit that trend and work in the vineyard,” he says. LeRoy produces 13 wines at Hermannhof—11 whites or rosés and two reds—that are predominantly German in style with a few French influences. “Our soils have a lot of acids and minerals that lend to a good Germanic-style winemaking, and most of our wines are off-dry to semi-sweet,” he explains. While the vineyard stays mostly traditional in its style, it is willing to go outside the box on occasion. A few years ago, LeRoy took chambourcins—normally hot-pressed—and cold-pressed them to create a rosé that took a gold in the Missouri Wine Competition. Likewise, with valvin muscat growing in popularity, Hermannhof has invested some acreage to those grapes after testing the juice in the cellars. With a hands-on approach throughout the process, the winemaker looks forward to seeing the results of those efforts. “It’s really nice to walk through your courtyard on a busy Saturday and watch all the people enjoying the fruits of your labor—it’s very gratifying.”

TOM MURPHY, CHANDLER HILL VINEYARDS From planting to fermenting to bottling, Tom Murphy enjoys partaking in the winemaking process from beginning to end. He admittedly got into winemaking by being in the “right place and the right time,” and has spent the past 18 years absorbing knowledge at other local wineries, in the classroom at UC Davis and around the world in Australia and New Zealand. After helping to plant the vineyards at Chandler Hill in 2007, Murphy joined the new team. The five whites, five reds and rosé originate from the norton, vignoles and chambourcin grapes grown at the vineyard, and although the winemaking commenced just last year, Murphy looks to customer feedback to develop new options that play off the German influences at the Defiance winery. “When I’m behind the bar for tastings, I sometimes like to pour wine from the previous year alongside this year’s, and see what the customers like,” he explains. “As a small winery, it’s a good way to see what we want to change up next time.” It is all part of the education process that keeps Murphy engaged in his work. “You’re constantly learning. It’s not a cookie-cutter position, but involves so many different skills, which makes for a pretty interesting job.”

CATHY BOMMARITO-MANLEY, BOMMARITO ESTATE ALMOND TREE WINERY As head winemaker for her family’s winery, Cathy BommaritoManley understands the importance of tradition and innovation. “We grow all our grapes and everything is done by hand,” she says. “We still use the recipes my dad came up with years ago.” After growing grapes for neighboring wineries for several years, Bommarito became a commercial winery in 2000. BommaritoManley assisted her father, Nick, mainly in the vineyard before attending UC Davis and enrolling in Missouri State’s VESTA program. She was well-versed in the style of the winery when she took over as head winemaker in 2008. “We pride ourselves on creating more European-style wine that is fruit-forward with softer tannins.” Those wines hearken back to Nick’s initial vision of smoother, more palatable wines. However, in recent years, Bommarito-Manley has worked on developing a series of drier wines with more structured tannins and fewer fruit characteristics to meet customer interest. While the physical process and tough Missouri climate make winemaking a challenge, Bommarito-Manley sees it as a labor of


missouri wine country Ladue News Special Section love, especially when she interacts with customers in the tasting rooms and receives feedback. “You’re working with a product for two to three years, and it might be four before I can actually put wine in a bottle; so when it comes out, and people enjoy what you’ve made, that’s the best part.”

JAY HANSMANN, WEINGARTEN VINEYARD Once owner Randy Hamann detailed his plans for Weingarten Vineyard to Jay Hansmann, he was ready to get on board. Moving over to the new winery in 2009 from Crown Valley, Hansmann began as vineyard manager before transitioning to winemaker. “I was able to get in on the ground floor,” he says. “I thought it was something different and great challenge to take on.” At Weingarten, Hansmann focuses on German lifestyle wines, using norton as the main varietal, along with vignoles, chambourcin, frontenac and cayuga, among others. The 12 wines offered include two fruit wines, with a profile that gears toward fruity with lower acidity, the winemaker explains. With Hansmann admitting that the finished product is the most rewarding part of his job, he looks forward to creating new wines for Weingarten. Its norton rosé just won a gold at the Missouri Wine Competition, while the winemaker has been experimenting with a new grape for the past seven-plus years. “In Missouri, we have a hard time growing different grapes, but hopefully we can make a good drier wine from this one. We’re trying to come up with something unique that will grow well and set us apart.”

DIVERSIONS

PORSCHE POWER

F

OR MOST AUTOMOTIVE ENTHUSIasts, a sports car is the ultimate object of desire, and at the top of the list is the Porsche 911. For almost 50 years, the rear-engined 911 has been the benchmark against which all other sports cars are measured. Though it’s evolved greatly since 1964, elements of the first 911 still can be seen in the newest iteration, which is lower, longer, wider and has a longer wheelbase than its predecessor. Power is the heart of a 911, and the heart of this new 911 is a rear-mounted, 350-horsepower 3.4 liter boxer 6-cylinder; or a 400-horsepower, 3.8-liter in the ‘S’ version. With either engine, zero to 60 times are in the low to mid four-second range. Power is delivered to either the rear or all four wheels through the world’s first-ever 7-speed manual transmission, or a 7-speed PDK automatic. I’ve driven the PDK on the street and on the track, and it’s good for an automatic. I know Porsche says the automatic has quicker acceleration, but if you’re a true driver, the manual is definitely the way to go. In this automated world, there’s something to be said for controlling the machines that seem to want to control us. Speaking of control, driving the 911 is the ultimate in automotive control. I’ve been fortunate enough to drive the 911 on two different tracks, and you couldn’t ask for a better track car. It never lacks for power, the steering is tight and allows you to steer almost by telepathy. It handles like it’s on rails, and the brakes feel like they could stop time. Just incredible. Almost as incredible is how easy it is to drive around town. It’s kind of like Superman before he goes in the phone booth: very mild-mannered and well-behaved. But all the time, you know that if you remove the glasses and unfurl the cape, this thing can fly. It even gets decent mileage, at 20 city, 27 highway. An interesting new feature is Auto Start Stop, which stops the

engine while at a stop light. Though a great fuelsaving feature, start up was a bit rough, not quite smooth enough yet to go unnoticed. Fortunately, it can be defeated with the push of a button. The interior of the 911 retains its classic fivegauge dashboard, with the tachometer front and center, reflecting the car’s performance purpose. The left-handed ignition start is another classic touch. Heated and cooled seats are very well-bolstered to keep you in place during spirited driving, and a modern center console contains all the buttons required to control a modern vehicle. Rear seats are useable for pre-teens, but they do fold down to form a parcel shelf. Of course, since the engine is in back, the trunk is in front, and it’s large enough to hold a big duffel bag or suitcase. Plaza Porsche general sales manager Kevin Rodermund says, “The new 911 outhandles the previous one. They cleaned up the 4 inches longer and 2 inches wider with classic 911 styling and a cockpit-like interior.” The new 911 starts at $83,000 for the regular Carrera, and $97,400 for the Carrera S. If you want four-wheel-drive or a convertible, you can expect to add about $2,500 and $10,000, respectively, to the sticker. This fall, we get another completely re-designed Porsche sports car, the Boxster—all new for 2013. The new model slightly expands its dimensions and modernizes the look of this classic mid-engined rear-drive roadster, with a more sharply raked windshield, large front air intakes, and a large air intake behind the door to feed the engine.

In the base Boxster, power comes from a 2.7 liter flat 6 cylinder that pumps out 265 horsepower via a 6-speed manual or 7-speed PDK automatic. The Boxster S sports a 315 horsepower 3.4 liter flat 6 good for 0-60 sprints of less than 5 seconds. Again, though the PDK is good for an automatic, this car just begs for the manual shifter to maximize control, handling and most important, fun. Braking is typically Porsche-excellent. A sport setting changes the suspension from comfortable street-friendly to serious track-handling mode. Steering is extremely responsive and tight, and handling is about as good as it gets in a sports car whose price tag has fewer than six digits. The Boxster is simply a joy to drive, especially hard. Mileage for the Boxster S is 21 city, 30 highway—quite impressive for such a powerful sporty car. Heated and cooled well-bolstered seats are comfortable and help keep you in place when you’re having fun. A rising center console puts the shifter more at hand than in previous Boxsters, and the interior has all the modern amenities expected in a premium European car. Of course, one of the best attributes of the Boxster is its soft convertible top that can be dropped in about nine seconds at the touch of a button at speeds up to 30 miles per hour. The dash is composed of three large round gauges, with the largest center gauge of course being the tachometer. With the engine in the middle, storage is found both in the front and back of the car. According to Parktown Porsche’s Jay Barbeau, “The new Boxster is even more balanced than before. The wheelbase is longer and the cockpit is lower and more forward. Acceleration rivals the 911.” The new Boxster starts at about $50,000 for the regular Boxster, and the Boxster S starts around $61,500.

IT HANDLES LIKE IT’S ON RAILS, AND THE BRAKES FEEL LIKE THEY COULD STOP TIME.

unreliable, secondhand gossip from around the world...* MONICA LEWINSKY Apparently the former White House intern has been offered $12 million to write a tell-all book about her “inappropriate physical relationship” with President Bill Clinton. Lewinsky will reportedly describe in salacious detail multiple sexual encounters, including the events that led up to the notorious stained blue dress. Wait. Hold on a second. Did I go back in time? What year is it?

KE$HA According to some thinly veiled social media posts, it seems the pop star may have a collaboration in the works with Rihanna. Ke$ha has reportedly been posting photos of Rihanna’s signature ‘R’ logo on Instagram, leading fans to speculate on what the pair is working on. It’s not a song or anything — apparently, they’re just swapping torn fishnets and body glitter.

ROB-STEN Twi-hards can breath a sigh of relief: We’re told Robert Pattinson has forgiven Kristen Stewart for her infidelity and the Twilight lovers have reunited. According to insiders in both circles, all is forgiven and the two are closer than ever. They plan on staying closer than ever until the opening of the final Twilight installment, after which, contractually, they never have to see or speak to each other again.

LINDSAY LOHAN And in yet another vehicular transgression, the troubled actress was arrested in New York City last week for allegedly hitting a pedestrian with her car. Former Guns ‘n Roses lead guitarist Slash was quick to leap to Lindsay’s defense, tweeting that the whole thing was a paparazzi stunt that had been blown out of proportion. Well, with a character witness like that… * so don’t quote me.

click lines, documents could be faxed, and homework could be done on computers. Clearly, that all seems quite leisurely now. Cranky, 14, and Whiny, 13, are all about social media — and that’s fine. They ‘friended’ me and I monitor their activity, trolling their Facebook pages every now and then — everything is fine. Let me rephrase: I thought everything was fine. What I hadn’t considered was this sort of planned obsolescence of social media sites. As an adult, Facebook is fine. I can see Jimmy’s pictures from his fly-fishing trip or Katie’s daughter’s first day of school and that’s all I really need. Frankly, it’s more than I need. Teenagers, however, need something else: privacy. There’s the rub. How do you achieve privacy in the most public forum the world has ever known? The answer is simple: Like a criminal on the lam, you relocate. I started to notice that Cranky’s Facebook page had seemed to stagnate. Photos of friends and parties that once were updated hourly, stayed the same for weeks — even months. On a side note: Were she truly diabolical, she would have continued to maintain the decoy page with innocuous updates and I would have never been the wiser. Just as I was visiting her page for the umpteenth time, thinking, Huh, still the same photos of the pool party?, I got a text from a much hipper friend with older daughters: Cranky just tweeted the cutest picture from homecoming! What? Cranky tweets? Of course, she tweets. Not only does she tweet, she has hundreds of followers—hundreds more than I do, might I add—so this is new. I have to rise to the occasion. I request to follow her on twitter (my request is listed as ‘pending,’ by the way). But don’t you see? It’s already too late. The fugitive spotted a suspicious van lurking outside his hotel room, and like a shot, he is gone in the night. I get a phone call from my best friend:

Why won’t Cranky let me follow her on Instagram? What the...? Now it’s Instagram, next it’s Pinterest. I once I get a lead and pick up on the scent, the trail goes cold. I feel like Keanu Reeves chasing Patrick Swayze from beach to beach in Point Break. Should I bother? Maybe it’s better to be blissfully unaware. Could somebody create a social media site that only teenagers know about? Maybe someone already has. In a way, the thought is almost a relief.

THE STORY

ELCOME TO THE first Oscar-buzz film of the season. I have to say I approached this film with a certain sense of dread. I don’t tend to go running to the Cineplex for a two-hour and 20-minute period drama. Although, the two actors who could get me to do just that would be Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. Turns out, they were the reason to see the film. Unfortunately, they were about the only reason. Freddie Quell (Phoenix) is a lost cause. He’s a World War II vet struggling with alcoholism and mental illness. And I don’t mean alcoholic in a Ladue, gimlets-after-golf kind of way. I mean, the guy drinks paint thinner. Everything changes when he stumbles onto a yacht carrying a wedding party—the father of the bride is Lancaster Dodd (Hoffman). Dodd is a charismatic cult leader with a system ‘the Cause’ that can do everything from improve mood swings to cure cancer. Freddie falls under Dodd’s spell instantly. The two men are delusional in completely different ways, and oddly complete each other. It seems only Dodd’s quietly powerful wife, Peggy (Amy Adams), sees the doom on the horizon. This film is worth seeing for the acting alone. Joaquin Phoenix is flawless as the damaged stray and Hoffman equally good as the pompous self-proclaimed guru. Yet, while the acting is Oscar-caliber, the film itself drags and lists toward dry. As I was walking out of the theater, I heard a man quip to his wife, I’ve seen worse. I couldn’t have put it better myself.

Good times abound for married couples Gabe and Karen and their long-time friends, Tom and Beth. Eleven years earlier, Gabe and Karen had actually introduced the latter pair on a blind date at the former’s summer residence in Martha’s Vineyard, where the four have vacationed ever since. On this dinner party evening, however, Beth has arrived with her two children but without Tom, who is away on business.

Moneyball

Sarah Cannon and Chad Morris each offer rich and complex interpretations to their roles as the disintegrating couple. Most significant are their reactions in the second act, which is set 11 years prior to the first, as we see how the two interact, or maybe don’t, in their initial meeting, in contrast to the easy banter between Hickey’s Gabe and Hand’s Karen.

RATING: 7 out of 10

ONESTLY, I COULD watch Clint Eastwood do almost anything. Heck, I recently watched him talk to a chair, so I mean what I say. Clearly, he chooses his films carefully. And once again, he has chosen a script with meat on the bone. Gus (Eastwood) is the best scout in baseball. Correction: Gus was the best scout in baseball. With his eyesight failing, he no longer can effectively evaluate prospects. In an attempt to salvage his career and repair their damaged relationship, his estranged lawyer daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), joins him on a recruiting trip. Along the way, Mickey comes across a failed pitcher-turned-scout Johnny (Justin Timberlake) and the two immediately click. Honestly, nothing beats a good Dirty Harry movie, but there is something so powerful about Clint Eastwood’s later films and this one is no exception. Yes this is a baseball movie, and it’s a good baseball movie; but baseball simply is the backdrop for a touching, well-acted film.

HIGHLIGHTS Having seen this work in at least three different productions, it is apparent that playwright Donald Margulies taps into a wellspring of human emotions with a touchy and wide-reaching subject. In America, where every other marriage now ends in divorce, the quantity of failure is matched by the broad range of reasons behind those marital breakups. What crosses one’s mind, though, is wondering how some unions last while others fall apart. Under Gary Wayne Barker’s keenly incisive direction, the body language and looks of Margulies’ players are just as important as their speeches. We observe how Michelle Hand’s effortless charm and accepting love as Karen change to judgmental rebuke, first of Tom (Chad Morris), but then later of Beth, as well. It’s a fascinating and selfprotective mechanism that rings with the clarity of real life.

TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE

While the kids play, Beth tearfully informs her friends that Tom has fallen in love with another woman and is filing for divorce. In disbelief, Karen and Gabe listen to Beth’s interpretation of this dramatic turn of events. Later, Tom arrives to give his side of the story, which is very important for him to relate. In the aftermath of their friends’ breakup, Gabe and Karen hesitantly examine their own relationship, as well.

spicybits The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis has named MELISSA LEE as its new executive chef. Lee has been with the company since 2004. She replaces chef AZHAR MOHAMMAD, who is now at The Ritz-Carlton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It’s finally official: Gerard Craft’s latest, Pastaria, has opened for business in the Centenne Building in Clayton. We also mentioned a while back that Circle 7 Ranch Taphouse and Grill was getting ready to open in Ballwin. That eatery has opened its doors, as well, effective Sept. 24. Chef ELIZABETH SCHUSTER, late of The Scottish Arms, is pursuing a new project with partner JAKE ALCORN that combines her love of food and film. Tenacious Eats, as the venture is named, promises a ‘fullcontact dining experience.’ Schuster and company present a film with a culinary bent, then cook and serve dishes that tie in with what’s happening onscreen, either directly or indirectly. The shows take place at Meyers Grove in The Grove neighborhood. Find out more at tenaciouseats.com. The Partnership for Downtown St. Louis recently launched a two-year pilot project, Project Compost. The initiative includes a bevy of restaurants along Washington Avenue: Blondie’s Wine & Coffee Bar; Caruso’s Deli; Copia; The Dubliner; Flannery’s; Gelateria Tavolini; Lola; Lucas Park Grille; Mizu Sushi Bar; Nara Cafe & Hookah Lounge; Prime 1000; The Over/ Under Grille; Rosalita’s; Rue 13; Washington Avenue Post; TREx; and Park Avenue Coffee. Each restaurant deposits its compostable waste in bins in the area. The goal is to divert more than 3,000 tons of organic food waste from landfills. Lots of stuff of interest coming up for all the oenophiles out there. On Tuesday, Oct. 2, from 4 to 6:30 p.m., Balaban’s Wine and Tapas Bar will host a wine tasting featuring the wares of Elyse Winery. Elyse’s MICHELLE DUCKETT will be on hand to discuss the winery’s offerings. Cost is $10 per person. Giovanni’s on The Hill will host a five-course wine dinner featuring dishes paired with Beringer wines on Monday, Oct. 15, at 6:30 p.m. There will also be a representative from Beringer on hand to discuss the vino in detail.

Blueberry Hill

Still a Thrill IF EVER A PLACE HAS EARNED THE MONIKER of ‘local landmark,’ it’s Blueberry Hill. Long the cornerstone in the decades-long revitalization of the U. City Loop, the venerable restaurant and music venue just celebrated its 40th anniversary, and shows no signs of slowing any time soon. Earlier this year, Blueberry Hill revamped its menu somewhat, putting it out in color and adding some new items. Between the anniversary and the new bill of fare, it was high time to head down to the Loop again to revisit this old favorite. The interior of Blueberry Hill has undergone some expansions over the years, but it remains one of the most eclectic, fun and funky spaces around, with a ton of music and pop culture memorabilia lining the walls, along with photos of owner Joe Edwards posing with a veritable who’s who of actors, athletes and musicians and vintage music posters advertising venues and acts long gone. With the proliferation of craft beer lists in bars and restaurants in recent years, it’s easy to forget that Blueberry Hill has long boasted a fine selection of beers. The current list included 62 bottled brews and 18 beers on tap to choose from, including a couple of our favorites, Anchor Steam ($5) and Big Sky Moose Drool Brown Ale ($5). The new menu still had a plethora of sides and apps to choose from, and we went with an old stand-by, the Zucchini Sticks ($5). The strips of squash basically served as a delivery vehicle for the deep-fried goodness of the batter and in truth, didn’t impart much flavor, which didn’t prove to be a problem at all—that’s what the ranch dressing BY SIDNEY LEWIS

was for. We also indulged in a cup of the French Onion Soup ($4), which had more cheese than some we’ve had around town recently. Blueberry Hill’s burger has always been a fan favorite, and the updated menu featured a couple of new variations—an 8-ounce burger and three 2-ounce sliders—that included wagyu beef as the centerpiece. We opted for the full-sized burger, which came topped with a slice of Canadian bacon, American cheese and a fried egg (one of our favorite burger adds), along with a side of tater tots. We’ve been fans of the good ol’ classic burger for a long time, but the new kid on the bun gave the old-timer a run for its money. Breakfast for dinner is one of our favorite concepts, so we ordered up the All American Platter ($7), with three scrambled eggs, tater tots (we can’t get enough tots, ever), three strips of bacon that struck a delicate balance between crisp and fat and sourdough toast. We had the choice of sausage links or patties instead of the bacon; or for a buck more, buttermilk biscuits or a pancake. Nothing fancy here, just good, straight-ahead diner food. The menu also had a good selection of vegetarian options, plenty of sandwiches and a handful of Specialties, like Fish & Chips and Chili Mac. Whether you’re just dropping by for a pint, or looking to chow down after catching a show, Blueberry Hill remains the place to go in the Loop. Here’s to 40 more years! 6504 Delmar Blvd., 727-4444, blueberryhill.com

issues with background checks for employment and even problems with travel,” says Glenn Davis, attorney with HeplerBroom. With such a large number of Americans in danger of becoming victims of identity theft at some point, it is important to be aware of your legal options and the steps necessary to clear your name. There are specific felonies for engaging in identity theft or financial fraud, as well as consumer protection laws, particularly the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which requires credit reporting agencies to ensure data on reports is accurate and gives consumers rights to contest inaccurate information, Wentzel explains. Once those steps are taken, Wentzel stresses the importance of ensuring the problem has been resolved. You can request an extended fraud alert for your credit report or possibly freeze your account for a monetary fee if you are having repeated problems, such as serial identity theft, where your information is traded around the country. If you are able to identify the wrongdoer, federal and Missouri statutes allow

people, Mann says. It is believed the master Michelangelo gave Barocci access to his own drawings, which would have been a great advantage, and because of that he was poisoned, she adds. After his illness, Barocci was plagued by sleeplessness and other maladies, and as a result frequently couldn’t finish commissions. It is believed Barocci sometimes made drawings for collectors when his illness would not permit him to finish a commissioned painting. Barocci was an early user of pastels, which Mann says might have made them desirable to collectors. “He was very innovative as a draftsman. He used a lot of types of drawings that artists before him had not used.” Those featured in the exhibit range from pen-and-ink studies to

for restitution, Wentzel notes. Missouri demands the greater of $5,000 or three times the actual damage, while the federal Identity Theft and Restitution Act allows money back for any charges you had to pay off, as well as for time invested dealing with the issue. Throughout the process, an attorney can assist by handling the steps or merely providing consultation, depending on your needs. “Sometimes an attorney can get to higher levels at credit organizations to get things resolved,” Davis says. “They can be your advocate.” To avoid becoming a victim in the first place, both Wentzel and Davis encourage strict protection of your personal information. Shred personal documents, monitor your bank and checking accounts and be very careful in your handling of information in social media. “We live in a digital world and digital data is easily accessed and surreptitiously moved,” Wentzel says. “It can cost consumers a lot of time, headaches and potentially thousands of dollars to clear their name— there’s no easy, one-button answer to fix all the potential problems.”

head studies and ‘cartoons,’ which were full-scale drawings transferred onto the canvas to serve as a basis for a painting. While much of Barocci’s work is based on religious themes, Mann says the art is engaging whether or not the viewer is familiar with the religious stories. “It’s really how he painted and communicated. Barocci puts in lots of charming details that are engaging and appealing to the casual viewer.” Recalling the response to Barocci’s Annunciation when it visited St. Louis as part of the Angels from the Vatican exhibition in 1998, Mann says she is excited for the response to Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master. “There was always a group of people standing in front of it. We already know that people will respond to Barocci’s work very well.”
