You’ll be pulled into worlds of wizards fighting dark magic, pirates trying to seize control of ghost ships, a quest for revenge on a whale, a 1,100-mile hike for self-discovery and healing, the visit to a theme park populated by dinosaurs … the list goes on and on, but, unfortunately, we’re limited here.

FROYO Like the idea of supporting a St. Louis-headquartered company? Twelve flavors of self-serve frozen yogurt can be enjoyed at the local froYo, located at 17408 Chesterfield Airport Road. They encompass five categories of tart, sorbet, no sugar added, low fat and nonfat. Store manager Annabele Mendiloa says they also cater to private residences and businesses. In fact, on behalf of Mercy Hospital, they recently delivered desserts to various locations for Nurses Appreciation Week. The newest froYo flavor added is low-fat sweet coconut. One of their most popular sorbets is pomegranate-raspberry.

MENCHIE'S FROZEN YOGURT Menchie's Frozen Yogurt offers party packages for hosting events, including book club meetings, crafting parties, birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. MaryAnn Matchett, owner of the Mechie's franchise at 1122 Town and Country Crossing Drive, says gatherings include flexibility. "We had a party for someone turning 30 years old, and they brought their own beer and wine and had a blast," she explains. "We also have customized cakes with decorated or computer-supplied images printed on top." As a self-serve store, Menchie's provides 14 frozen yogurt flavors, 32 dry toppings, 12 chill-bar items and six sauces. Customers can mix, match and swirl to their tongue's content. Matchett says cookies and cream is always a popular flavor. For July, salted caramel pretzel

Smoothie King was founded in 1973 by someone who battled food allergies, and today, their drinks are still handcrafted by blendologists for specific purposes.

Starry Night Wish I May, Wish I Might, See a Ton of Stars Tonight ARTICLE JULIE BROWN PATTON

S

ummer nights sweep in clear skies that beckon stargazers of all ages. Finding a truly dark spot from which to view the cosmos is essential, and there are a couple of Chesterfield locations that fit the bill. Because it can take 40 to 60 minutes for human eyes to fully adapt to seeing in the dark, plan starry outings accordingly. Furthermore, any exposure to bright lights instantly ruins eyes' acclimatization to the dark, so stargazing is a great time to tuck away cell phones and turn off headlights. Streetlights, porch lights and inside lamps all contribute to lower sky visibility. If having light nearby is a must, viable options are red torches used by astronomers for night

vision, lanterns with red safety light features or red LEDs, and placing red cellophane or red fingernail polish over a regular flashlight beam. 20

Fly High in Chesterfield DEFY GRAVITY AT TRAPEZESTL, ST. LOUIS’ ONLY FLYING TRAPEZE CENTER ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY JULIE BROWN PATTON

rave enough to swing from a trapeze? It's possible to do so in Chesterfield from 25 feet in the air at TrapezeSTL. Circus Harmony, a nonprofit organization that uses circus arts to motivate social change, opened St. Louis’ only Flying Trapeze Center this May for its second season at the Chesterfield Athletic Club, 16625 Swingley Ridge Road. Anyone who is 6 years old or older and weighs less than 250 pounds can participate. The Trapeze Center first opened in 2014 in St. Louis Union Station; it moved to Chesterfield during 2016, next to the DoubleTree Hotel. "We host families, individuals, summer camps, birthday parties and team-building events," manager and lead coach Matt Viverito says. "You don't have to be a gymnast, cheerleader or athlete to fly. It's big fun for everyone! It's all about breaking out of the summer routine, and doing something different and exciting." As a Circus Harmony alumnus, Viverito performed with the St. Louis Arches, went to college and then joined the circus to tour with the Flying Pages, where he completed the legendary triple somersault. He returned to St. Louis to share the joy of "flying" with his hometown. In addition to the trapeze center, Circus Harmony teams run on-site circus-related classes for all ages at the City Museum in

St. Louis, as well as off-site classes in regional schools, clubs and community centers. Individual trapeze classes last two hours, with a maximum of 10 students. No prior experience is required. Classes first cover safety and techniques. Then students progress to low-hanging trapeze bars to practice skills and body positions before doing them in the air. Each participant can learn how to swing, flip, dismount and do a trick. At the end of classes, students can execute a trick while being assisted by a catcher. Viverito assures all coaching and instruction is tailored to each student. All one has to do is listen carefully to the "Up and Hup" instructions being provided throughout the experience. Call 314.504.4298 for details or book a "flight" online at TrapezeSTL.com. All students must sign a waiver/consent form before they can participate in a class. He says people's reactions to trapeze flying generally fall into three categories: energetic, fearless participants who want to learn harder skills; scared individuals who swing once and are exhilarated but stop at that because they happily can cross it off their bucket list; or those in the middle who started out a bit terrified but slowly get comfortable as the class progresses and who have several "aha" moments as they enjoy it more and more. Legendary St. Louis circus star and aerialist Elizabeth "Bunny" Herring even graced the same TrapezeSTL when she was 87 years old, making her the oldest person to date to fly this equipment. Herring, at 18 years old, ran away to join Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus to be a showgirl but ended up in the air instead. She made headlines in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 1948 when she left the American School of Ballet in New York to join the circus. For her 90th birthday last October, she rightfully celebrated by taking her final aerial flight at the City Museum. "What keeps us going as coaches is being able to coax students along and seeing them end up on cloud nine," Viverito says. "We truly enjoy seeing what people accomplish." Due to the unique combination of muscles used, he says people often are surprised by what a good workout the trapeze provides.

The trapeze equipment was made possible through grants and funding from the Regional Arts Commission, Daughters of Charity Foundation of St. Louis, YouthBridge Social Enterprise and Innovation Competition. There's a nice future tie-in to the regional community as well. Portions of the proceeds from TrapezeSTL go toward Circus Harmony's Wheels to Wings program, which funds transportation for needy and deserving circus students to take circus classes at the Circus Harmony Center, located on the third floor of City Museum in St. Louis. TrapezeSTL will be open through mid-October, depending on temperatures. The setup is outdoors, so it can be affected by weather. July 2017 | Chesterfield Lifestyle

Welcome Your New Publishers of Chesterfield Lifestyle

ecause Chesterfield provides such an abundance of neighborhood opportunities and events spanning so many interests, it's easy to see why its citizens care deeply about the area and enjoy it so much. The two new publishers of Chesterfield Lifestyle are equally passionate about this community. "There are so many great developments and people in Chesterfield, and we're having a wonderful time talking to everyone about what makes it so strong and progressive," co-publisher Kelley Lamm, who relishes inspiring and helping others, says. As radio hosts on "590 The Fan," both Lamm and co-publisher Gordon Montgomery understand the value of accurate, helpful information. They pledge to arm readers with as many notices of interesting happenings and local updates as they can. The publication's team also will highlight what's occurring in local neighborhoods, shopping areas, groups and businesses. And, of course, the publication will continue to include creative ads offering valuable services and products.  If you've heard Lamm and Montgomery on-air Saturday mornings co-hosting the “She SAID He SAID” radio show, you already know a bit about their personalities.

Chesterfield Lifestyle | July 2017

They, along with special guests, like to entertain, enlighten and educate, always with good advice and a sense of humor, as they "Talk, Love American Style." Lamm is a professional speaker, author, emcee, cause marketer and event specialist, too. Montgomery owns Q Media and also used to rock out as the lead singer of the American Greed band. Both are real estate agents, and both enjoy now devoting their experience in the communications industry to Chesterfield Lifestyle. By serving as celebrities to charity events, they've seen firsthand the benefits of joining  together to achieve goals. They cherish philanthropic projects and have supported nonprofits, including Make A Wish, Adoption Exchange, Responder Rescue, Back Stoppers, Five Acres, Stray Rescue, Wings of Hope, Boys and Girls Club and Marygrove School for Children. They look at this publication as a creative way to help give back to a community cause.  "We like hearing what everyone thinks is important for Chesterfield," Montgomery says, noting they already are getting feedback from advertisers, readers and community leaders. "We have a true appreciation of working

closely with advertising clients to maximize and extend their marketing efforts." Montgomery and Lamm say what attracts them to the magazine is its hyper-local appeal and ability to deliver superior quality, content and results. It offers a way to join businesses and the community to work together collectively. They look forward to building relationships with readers and sharing all of the optimism that envelopes Chesterfield as they begin this new publishing journey.

or those who have torn their meniscus, the telltale signs can present themselves in multiple forms: a popping sensation, swelling or stiffness,

pain when twisting, bending or rotating the knee, difficulty straightening the knee, a sensation of the knee "giving way" or feeling as if the knee is "locked" in place. Some might assume this injury predominately affects just athletes or those individuals who are involved in activities such as football, hockey, ten-

nis or basketball. While those people do make up many of the cases, anyone can be at risk for tearing their meniscus, especially older individuals. That's because, over the years, their cartilage has begun to wear out which leads to diminished resilience. And, as we get older, some individuals put on extra weight, which can add to the wear and tear on the knee. In some cases, performing ordinary activities such as kneeling, squatting or lifting heavy objects can cause the meniscus to tear.  The question then becomes: when should someone visit a specialist about possible symptoms of a meniscus tear? An immediate examination

pain. These include X-rays, which can rule out other problems that occur in the knee that share similar symptoms, and MRI, which produces detailed images of the hard and soft tissues within the knee. Initial treatment varies based on individual patient factors. Young patients, athletes and patients with acute traumatic tears are typically treated with surgery to repair the meniscus or remove the torn pieces, depending on the location and complexity of the tear. For patients who develop a degenerative meniscus tear—one associated with knee arthritis—treatment usually begins conservatively with rest, ice, compression, elevation, over-the-counter pain relievers and possibly a cortisone injection. In some cases, this is all the patient will need to recover from this type of injury. Physical therapy is also an option to rehabilitate and strengthen the muscles around the knee to help stabilize it. If these treatment options do not provide resolution, surgery may be appropriate. In any surgical case, it is preferred to preserve as much of the meniscus as possible to prevent any future degenerative issues in the knee joint. 34
