Features (FLIP)

As summer approaches, warm weather activities begin. Historic Saint Louis, a collective of historic sites that promotes understanding and appreciation of history and culture across the St. Louis region, is having its fifth annual “Landscapes of Summertime Past” home and garden tour.

“We are focusing on the gardens, but another aspect is bringing the outdoors inside, sometimes by art,” said Sally H. Cakouros,

communications assistant at Historic Saint Louis.

A subtitle for the event is “All Gardening is Landscape Painting.”

There are 20 sites on the six-hour tour for visitors to choose from. When planning the event, visitors should keep in mind the distance between sites as the tour spans areas from Collinsville, Illinois to St. Genevieve, Missouri.

Regarding the garden portion of the tour, visitors will be able to see plants that may

not be as common today, particularly in the herb gardens. Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions about the different varieties of greenery and foliage. There will also be activities such as live music at some sites. For instance, the Sappington House will feature artists who will be doing drawings outside and fiddlers. The Hawken House will feature dramatizations by actors portraying historical figures and have wine tastings.

The “Landscapes of Summertime Past” home and garden tour hosted by Historic Saint Louis takes place on June 10 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
By Wendy Todd

For those interested in the architecture of the homes and other sites, one could compare the red brick design of Mudd’s Grove in Kirkwood to the log structure of the Log House in Overland.

History lovers can enjoy learning about landmarks such as Susan Blow’s Des Peres School, which was the first publicly funded kindergarten school in the United States, founded in 1873. Another feature on the tour is the Gittemeier House, a farmhouse built in the 1860’s by Franz Gittemeier migrated to Florissant from Prussia in the 1850s.

There will even be opportunities to buy goods at the Hawken House Museum from 20 vendors.

Though the garden and home tour occurs once a year, Historic Saint Louis offers year-round opportunities to learn of the history in St. Louis. One can create their own tour by contacting the organization and scheduling tailored tour experience.

“The Saturday tours can be built around themes, like African American, the Civil War, Town and Country, Early American, French, Germanic and Victorian sites, depending on the visitors’ interests,” Cakouros said. “Many times, connections can be made between sites because the past residents knew each other during a certain time period, like Daniel Boone and John Sappington who migrated to Missouri from Kentucky. So, visiting both the Daniel Boone home in Defiance and Historic Sappington House in Crestwood brings their stories together.”

The “Landscapes of Summertime Past” home and garden tour takes place on June 10 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more information go to

Florissant celebrates Arbor Day and was named Tree City USA for 2022 by the Arbor Day Foundation

The traditional Florissant Arbor Day celebration took place on April 28 at Sunset Park.

At the celebration was the Director of Parks & Recreation Cheryl Thompson-Stimage, Park Superintendent Kevin Green, his Foreman Dave Klaus and members of the Gardeners Club of Florissant who have for many years done an outstanding job for the community.

A proclamation was read in observance to the Arbor Day celebration. The city of Florissant was named Tree City USA for 2022 by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of the city’s commitment to effective urban forest management.

The city of Florissant achieved Tree City Recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

Trees provide multiple benefits to a community when properly planted


and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.

The Tree City USA, Tree Line and Tree Campus USA programs are sponsored by the National Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the US Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. These programs provide direction, technical assistance, public attention and national recognition for community forestry programs.

Two trees were planted; a White Dogwood Tree in memory of Judy Plischke and a Magnolia Tree in honor of Mary Lindsey Nelson. The city has been a Tree City USA for 33 years.

The city of Florissant urges all citizens to support efforts to protect the trees and woodlands and to support the city’s urban forestry program.

The importance of community for older adults

As we age, maintaining an engaged and active lifestyle becomes more important than ever. Staying connected with others and participating in social activities is vital for mental, emotional, and physical well-being. For older adults, expanding their social community is an essential part of healthy aging.

Older adults who are active participants in their communities experience a variety of benefits; which may include reduced risk of depression, anxiety, heart disease, high blood pressure and improved cognitive function. Additionally, those who stay active in their community often have a better quality of life and report feeling more fulfilled and happier.

ArchWell Health understands that maintaining connections can become difficult later in life. For many, losing loved ones and close friends, lack of transportation, and scarce access to other needed resources can leave individuals feeling disconnected and alone. ArchWell Health assists in helping members combat these feelings of

isolation by empowering them with opportunities to connect with others and build new relationships at one of its four centers in the St. Louis area. Whether it’s volunteering at a local nonprofit organization, taking on a part-time job, or participating in our in-center activities, such as bingo, fitness classes, book clubs, and more, seniors who engage with their community can form new friendships and maintain a sense of purpose and belonging.

In addition to these activities, ArchWell Health’s primary care centers provide older adults access to licensed social workers. These professionals are available to empower seniors by helping them navigate their medical benefits, coordinating care and counseling, and ensuring they can maintain independence in the community. Seniors deserve to be seen, heard, and given extra time by doctors, nurses, and social workers because great care begins with better relationships.

Staying engaged in community can help prevent the loneliness some older adults

may feel. Talking with a neighbor, calling a friend, or attending an ArchWell Health in-center activity are just a few of the ways older adults can improve their happiness and physical health.

For more information on in-center activities in your neighborhood, and to learn how to become involved in the ArchWell Health community, visit or give us a call at 314-449-9727.

Lindsay Pike is a licensed social worker with eight years of experience advocating for older adults. Pike currently serves seniors at ArchWell Health St. Louis, a primary care group that delivers bestin-class care at accessible neighborhood centers where seniors can become part of a vibrant, wellness-focused community.

Flag Retirement Ceremony

On June 10, the VFW and the city of Florissant will host a Flag Retirement Ceremony that will be held in the front of Florissant City Hall starting at 9 a.m. The event is open to the community to attend.

The Daughters of American Revolution (DAR), Florissant American Legion, neighboring VFW posts and Knights of Columbus as well as Florissant Police and Fire Departments will assist in mentoring various area youth groups in the proper etiquette for our nation’s flag.

The purpose of a flag retirement ceremony is to encourage proper respect for the Flag of the United States and to provide for disposal of unserviceable flags in a dignified manner in accordance with U. S. Code.

If anyone has a flag that should be retired, there is a flag retirement box that was donated by the American Legion Post 444 that is inside Florissant City Hall in the vestibule area by the rear entrance as well as a box at the VFW post.

2023 air quality forecasting season kicks off with latest ‘State of the Air’ report

As daily air quality forecasting makes its return for the 2023 season May 1, the American Lung Association’s latest “State of the Air” report finds that, after decades of progress on cleaning up sources of air pollution, nearly 36% of Americans – 119.6 million people – still live in places with failing grades for unhealthy levels of ozone or particle pollution. While ozone air pollution remains a serious threat to public health, this is 17.6 million fewer people breathing unhealthy air compared to the years covered by the 2022 report (2018-2020), which reinforces the trend in this year’s “State of the Air” report is continuing in a more positive direction.

For the seventh consecutive year, the St. Louis region escaped being ranked among the top 25 most ozone-polluted cities in the U.S., coming in at number 35 on the list out of 227 metropolitan areas. The area ranked 27th on the list for most polluted cities by yearround particle pollution, which is back three spots from the previous year.

The most up-to-date report findings have added to the evidence that a changing climate is making it harder to protect human health, with the three years included in this year’s report (2019-2021) ranking among the seven hottest years on record globally. Therefore, high ozone days and spikes in particle pollution related to heat, drought and wildfires are putting millions of people at risk and adding challenges to the work that states and cities are doing across the nation to clean up air pollution. Here’s a look at the latest rankings for ozone pollution across the region for counties in the non-attainment area included in the American Lung Association’s report.

National Park Service turned off Gateway Arch exterior lights for bird migration season

The National Park Service has announced it will not illuminate the Gateway Arch at night throughout the month of May due to the spring bird migration season.

“It’s encouraging to see that St. Louis has once again escaped the list of the most ozone-polluted cities with more counties in the bi-state area receiving a better grade in this year’s annual “State of the Air” report compared to last year,” said Susannah Fuchs, Director of Clean Air for the American Lung Association in Missouri. “However, there is still much work to be done to protect our local communities and constituents from the growing risks to public health as we prepare to settle into summer when we’re at greater risk for elevated levels of ozone pollution.”

According to the 2023 “State of the Air” report, more than 30% of the nation’s population – including 23.6 million children, 15.4 million people age 65 or older, and millions in other groups at high risk of health harm – are exposed to high levels of ozone on enough days to earn the air they breathe a failing grade.

Albeit an alarming figure, the number of people living in counties with a failing grade for ozone actually declined by more than 19 million this year, with 39 counties in 23 states dropping off the “F” list entirely. Report data suggests that pandemic-related changes in activity patterns in 2020 and 2021, such as increased telework, made a sizeable difference in ozone levels. With transportation-related emissions having long been reported as one of the biggest contributors to air pollution, this reinforces the importance of people understanding the way they choose to travel significantly impacts air quality in the region.

Fuchs notes that actions like combining errands into a single trip, walking or biking for short trips instead of hopping in your car, not topping off your gas tank, avoiding vehicle idling or opting for electric vehicles can greatly affect the amount of ozone-forming emissions on any given day and help people across the region breathe easier. On the heels of last year’s successful “Don’t Pollute. Switch Up Your Commute.” campaign launched by the Clean Air Partnership and more than half a dozen partners, area residents can still visit to learn more about ways to modify their commuting behaviors and all the transportation options available on both sides of the Mississippi River – and links to associated schedules, pricing, programs, ride matching services, incentives and more.

Area residents are also encouraged to visit the Clean Air Partnership’s website at www.CleanAir-StLouis. com, where they can view a wealth of information on the health effects of poor air quality, tips for individuals to do their share for cleaner air and contact the Clean Air Partnership with interest in receiving their monthly newsletter. While on the site, individuals can also sign up to receive the daily forecast in their email inboxes via the Environmental Protection Agency’s EnviroFlash air quality alert system, which states if the forecast for the following day is a GREEN (good), YELLOW (moderate), ORANGE (unhealthy for sensitive groups) or RED (unhealthy) air quality day.

Additional air quality information and the daily forecast can be accessed by liking the Clean Air Partnership on Facebook, or by following the organization on Twitter @gatewaycleanair. To access the full American Lung Association 2023 “State of the Air” report, visit

“St. Louis sits right beneath the Mississippi Flyway, a major migration highway,” said Jeremy Sweat, Superintendent, of Gateway Arch National Park. “For over a decade Gateway Arch’s exterior lights have been turned off for two weeks each May and September to help minimize the possible disorienting effect the lights may have on birds that migrate at night. As migration patterns have changed, this year the park will extend the lights off for the entire month of May.”

Gateway Arch National Park is both a building and program partner with Lights Out Heartland, an organization that works with partners to provide migrating birds safe passage through the Mississippi Flyway during the high-intensity migration months of May and September.

According to the St. Louis Audubon Society, 60% of North American songbirds and 40% of waterfowl (over 325 species) are anticipated to migrate this spring and fall. The National Park Service began turning the Gateway Arch’s exterior lights off to protect migrating birds in 2002.

The Arch’s exterior lights will be turned back on beginning the evening of June 1, and the monument will be lit nightly thereafter.

The Florissant Walk-Through History Program unveils its 56th plaque

Family and friends gathered in front of 990 rue St. Francois on May 3 to unveil the 56th Walk Through History plaque in honor of the late Sheila Williams.

Williams was a charter member of Florissant’s Valley Historic Society and a pioneer in local history. She was one of the founding members of Historic Florissant, Inc.

She would tell the story how Historic Florissant, Inc. saved the Meyer House from demolition from the highway expansion in the early 70s. A business plan was formed and Sheila went to the bank and she personally signed a $500,000 loan. After signing the loan, she went home to tell her husband.

Williams was the first woman engineer in the Unit-

ed States for Southwestern Bell in the 1970s. She was an award-winning member of Florissant’s Business & Professional Women.

Williams was very active her communities, volunteered her time and donated to hundreds of charitable organizations. She also traveled throughout the world volunteering internationally.

After retirement, she settled in Texas. She will al-

Multitasking Still In This Together:

Anyone who has ever tried to cook a chicken fried steak dinner knows it’s not an easy thing to do…especially the way I do it.

I have a batter recipe for homemade onion rings that I’ve adapted to coat cube steaks that is messy but delicious, and I try to keep the cooking process from taking up too much of the kitchen counter, but it’s one of those three step deals that takes a plate, two bowls and a cookie-cooling sheet with a piece of waxed paper underneath to catch the drips just for that one part of the meal.

Then, there are homemade mashed potatoes to be cooked and mashed with butter, milk and my secret ingredient, just a little chunk of cream cheese, which need to be prepared at the last minute so they are nice and smooth and warm.

Sometimes, there are homemade yeast rolls, which are the pies de resistance. Best part is, the dough can be made ahead of time and just happily sit in the refrigerator.

Add in packaged gravy that is waiting to be whisked into boiling water, and there is a lot of last-minuting going on.

It was all going just fine until I turned around to see something on the evening news and the gravy whisk slipped from the edge of the pan and clattered to the floor. While I was cleaning it up, the timer on the oven dinged, the mixer fell into the potatoes, and I burned my hand on the edge of the skillet.

My knight in shining armor ran to the kitchen, took one look at me bent over the gravy whisk on the floor, laughing, mashed potatoes on my shirt and a wet dishrag wrapped around my burned hand and just shook his head.

“Why can’t you ever just do one thing at a time?” he ventured very quietly, which was an extremely wise way to venture under the circumstances, and grabbed the plates and silverware to make a quick exit from mashed potato throwing distance.

With that particular dinner, there isn’t really a “one thing at a time” to be managed, but I do have to grudgingly agree that he’s right about my not being able to do one thing at a time very easily.

I think it’s a side effect of having children that just never seems to leave once the kids do. I put clothes into the wash, but instead of just emptying the hamper, I start stripping the bed, yanking the towels from the shower and grabbing the kitchen dishcloths and towels while I’m at it. The dish detergent bottle is almost empty, so I refill that while I’m there, the paper towels need to be replaced, and I might as well grab some toi-

let paper to put in the front bathroom cabinet while I’m in the pantry getting the paper towels.

It all comes from the days of packing diaper bags with snacks and toys and extra clothes and diaper cream and just-in-case extras of bibs and stuffed animals and socks while holding a baby, helping a fouryear-old flush the toilet, answering a first grader’s math problem and finding shin guards for the oldest all at the same time.

And I excelled at that, if I do say so myself.

Except now, there’s that little issue with age and memory to be dealt with, when I start to do one thing and get side-tracked by three or four other “might as well do this while I’m at its,” and sometimes, just sometimes, forget the original task altogether. I’ve prioritized it right out of the picture.

And, oh, the confusions and the misplacements and the “what was I in this room for to begin withs?” that leave me laughing or reeling or praying that I didn’t just do what I’m pretty sure I did.

The latest was yesterday, when I couldn’t find my glasses in any of the regular places after I’d searched from bedroom to kitchen to bathroom to dining room table for them, walked past the wonderful new main floor laundry room we have now and heard the washing machine sloshing merrily. I remembered taking off my shorts and adding them to the load at the last minute and I’d removed the car key from the pocket, but my glasses had been in the other pocket because I’d just gotten home from the grocery store and…uh-oh. Surely, I hadn’t left my glasses in the pocket.

After removing piece after piece, sludging through the soapy contents of the washing machine to find my shorts, and checking one pocket and then the other, I found my glasses…still folded and tucked into the pocket where I’d left them.

And very clean, by the way.

Christian Hospital among nation’s top performing hospitals for treatment of heart attack patients

Christian Hospital has received the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR Chest Pain – MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2023. Christian Hospital is one of only 262 hospitals nationwide to receive the honor.

The award recognizes Christian Hospital’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients and signifies that Christian Hospital has reached an aggressive goal of treating these patients to standard levels of care as outlined by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association clinical guidelines and recommendations.

To receive the Chest Pain – MI Registry Platinum Performance Achievement Award, Christian Hospital has demonstrated sustained achievement in the Chest Pain – MI Registry for two consecutive years (2021 and 2022), and performed at the highest level for specific performance measures. Full participation in the registry engages hospitals in a robust quality improvement process using data to drive improvements in adherence to guideline recommendations and overall quality of care provided to heart attack patients.

“It is an honor to award Christian Hospital with the Platinum Performance Award for their valuable national leadership and dedication to meeting comprehensive

performance measures in patient care,” said Michael C. Kontos, MD, FACC, chair of the NCDR Chest Pain –MI Registry Steering Subcommittee, and cardiologist at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. “The receipt of this award indicates that Christian Hospital remains committed to providing top quality, guideline-driven care for heart attack patients. Their success ensures patients are receiving the highest quality cardiovascular care.”

“This accomplishment is a direct reflection of our skilled and dedicated heart care team,” said Rick Stevens. Christian Hospital president. “We’re proud of this award because it recognizes the high level of care and service we provide to our patients.”

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that over 800,000 Americans suffer a heart attack each year. A heart attack occurs when a blood clot in a coronary artery partially or completely blocks blood flow to the heart muscle. Treatment guidelines include administering aspirin upon arrival and discharge, timely restoration of blood flow to the blocked artery, smoking cessation counseling and cardiac rehabilitation, among others.

Chest Pain – MI Registry empowers health care provider teams to consistently treat heart attack patients according to the most current, science-based guidelines and establishes a national standard for understanding and improving the quality, safety and outcomes of care provided for patients with coronary artery disease, specifically high-risk heart attack patients.

St. Luke’s Hospital and St. Luke’s Des Peres Hospital each received an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group. This national distinction celebrates St. Luke’s achievements in prioritizing patient safety by protecting patients from preventable harm and errors. The new grades reflect performance primarily during the height of the pandemic.

“Delivering high quality, safe care is at the core of our mission,” said Samuel Flanders, MD, St. Luke’s chief quality and safety officer. “These “A” grades recognize the deep commitment our providers and team members have in caring safely for the communities we serve.”

“This new update of Hospital Safety Grades shows that, at the national level, we saw deterioration in patient safety with the pandemic,” said Leah Binder, president, and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “But these hospitals received an ‘A’ despite those challenges. I congratulate all the leaders, staff, volunteers, and clinicians who together made that possible.”

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization, assigns an “A,” “B,” “C,” “D” or “F” grade to general hospitals across the country based on over thirty national performance measures reflecting errors, accidents, injuries, and infections, as well as systems hospitals have in place to prevent harm. Hospital Safety Grade results are based on more than thirty national performance measures and are updated each fall and spring.

STLCC professor named recipient of 48th David L. Underwood Memorial Lecture Award

St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley named Rokhaya “Daba” N. Ndao, Ph.D., professor of mathematics, recipient of the 48th David L. Underwood Memorial Lecture Award.

She will present the commemorative lecture in fall 2023.

The late David L. Underwood was known for his love of education. He was deeply concerned with the welfare of students and staff alike. His dedication went beyond office hours – and he tirelessly gave of his time and talents to further the educational mission at Florissant Valley.

Recipients of the Underwood Memorial Lecture Award demonstrate that same dedication and commitment. Chosen by a committee of peers, the recipient exhibits excellence in instruction and a genuine, humanistic concern for students, faculty, staff, and all of education.

Sharon North, the 45th recipient of the Underwood Award, creatively shared clues about this year’s deserving colleague during a presentation held inside the David L. Underwood Library before revealing Ndao as the winner of the prestigious honor.

North described Ndao’s service to St. Louis Community College as honorable and impressive.

“She currently serves as chair of the math department and cares deeply about student success. Dr. Ndao

was selected to represent the district in a National Science Foundation grant to apply an evidence-based educational approach for student-centered learning and ‘flipped’ instruction in differential equations. In her flipped classroom, students used the extensive collection of videos Dr. Ndao created before class and classroom time to engage in assignments and discussions.

Dr. Ndao is also a contributing author of OpenStax’s ‘Corequisite to College Algebra’ textbook. This open and free educational resource provides support to students, regardless of their ability to pay. Her extraordinary commitment to providing students with a strong foundation in mathematics is a model of excellence,” North said.

Ndao has earned a reputation for being organized, having high standards and being professionally dressed.

Her students use words like amazing, caring and “the best mathematics professor ever” to describe her, and it is common for her to mentor students beyond their tenure at STLCC.

Being honored for something she loves doing is a lift for Ndao.

“At first, I felt overwhelmed, because I could only focus on the presentation I have to deliver in August. Then I realized the importance of the Underwood Award and I felt humbled, confident and proud at the same time.” Ndao said.

“I never thought that I would be a recipient of an award for doing what I am passionate about: teaching and helping my students in every way I can. This award represents a validation of having chosen this noble profession of teaching and an encouragement to continue to expand minds and change lives.”

Sports you see with Gary B...

Former Cardinals will be part of a home run derby event sponsored by the Hoots

The O’Fallon Hoots play their home games at CarShield Field in O’Fallon and play in the Prospect League.

The Hoots announced that former Cardinals infielder and World Series Champion Scott Spiezio, Mike Matheny, Andruw Jones and Bo Hart will participate at CarShield Field for the 3rd Annual MLB Alumni Home Run Derby presented by Complete Auto Body & Repair on Saturday, June 3. The alumni will be joined by members of the CarShield Collegiate League and on-air personalities from 101 ESPN and 105.7 The Point.

“Scott Spiezio is a great Cardinal alum and we are excited to have him in O’Fallon for this signature event,” Hoots General Manager David Schmoll said. “Scott had a tremendously successful Major League career and won at the highest levels, including here in St. Louis. We can’t wait to see him in June!”

Former Cardinal infielder Bo Hart famously broke Kirby Puckett’s rookie batting average record in his first ten big league games

“Bo Hart provided Cardinals fans with one of the most exciting starts to a Major League career,” Hoots General Manager David Schmoll said. “Bo is not only a great story in Cardinals history, but he is a great ambassador for the Cardinals today. I cannot wait to have him back at CarShield field with our other MLB alums!”

Gold Glove catcher Mike Matheny played five sea-

sons with the Cardinals before managing them to the World Series in 2013.

“Mike Matheny is a part of Cardinals history, leading the team to a World Series appearance as both a player and as a manager,” Hoots General Manager David Schmoll said. “We are excited to welcome him back to the St. Louis-area for this event.”

Hall of Fame candidate Andruw Jones headlines 2023 event

“This event has become a staple of our ballpark and we are excited to bring it back for the third year,” General Manager David Schmoll said. “To be able to bring someone with the pedigree of Andruw Jones, a potential Hall of Famer, to our fans in O’Fallon, makes for a phenomenal event and I cannot wait to see him in action.”

Andruw Jones enjoyed a 17-year MLB career, primarily with the Atlanta Braves before stops with the Dodgers, Rangers, White Sox and Yankees. The fivetime All-Star and eight-time Gold Glove outfielder began his Major League career at 19-years-old with the Braves in 1996 and earned Rookie of the Year Honors in his first full season in 1997. The Willemstad, Curacao-native led the majors in home runs (51) and RBI (128) in 2005 when he finished second in MVP voting. He played his final MLB game in 2012, finishing with a lifetime .254 average, .823 OPS and 434 home runs. Earlier this month, Jones finished sixth in Hall of Fame voting, receiving 58.1% of votes.

Season starts at CarShield Field in O’Fallon on Wednesday, May 31 at 6:35 p.m. against Cape Girardeau.

* This will be an incredible event

Born and raised in South St. Louis, Steve Bryan is now based in Anaheim, California, and has been allowed access to movie and television sets to see actors and directors at work. Though his writing has taken him far from St. Louis, Steve is, at heart, still the same wide-eyed kid who spent countless hours watching classic movies at neighborhood theaters.


Heat oven 375°F.

Prepare muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Cut each hot dog into six pieces.

In large bowl, whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder.

In medium bowl, whisk melted butter, milk, sour

In 1974, Martin Davidson and Stephen F. Verona directed “The Lords of Flatbush,” a coming-of-age drama set in the 1950’s. Sylvester Stallone played Stanley Rosiello, a teenager from Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood who, along with Wimpy Murgalo (Paul Mace), Butchey Weinstein (Henry Winkler) and Chico Tyrell (Perry King), were part of a gang that wore leather jackets, chased girls, got into fights and hung out at the malt shop.

Believing he had impregnated his girlfriend Frannie (Maria Smith), Stanley agreed to marry her even after he learned she wasn’t pregnant. By the end of the film, the boys from Flatbush left their leather jackets at home and wore dress suits to Frannie and Stanley’s wedding.

“The Lords of Flatbush” became part of a nostalgia wave that included the Broadway and movie versions of “Grease,” George Lucas’ “American Graffiti” and, of course, television’s “Happy Days.” On that iconic series, Henry Winkler played Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli, a motorcycle rider who became a great friend to Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard). The series ran 11 seasons before ending in 1984 and created such spin-offs as “Laverne & Shirley” and “Mork & Mindy.”

cream and eggs. Combine butter mixture with flour mixture.

Fill each muffin cavity halfway with batter. Place one hot dog piece in center of each cavity. Bake 14-16 minutes. Cool completely.

To make dipping sauce: In small bowl, stir sour cream, mustard and honey. Serve with corn dogs.

During his years on “Happy Days,” Henry Winkler also took movie roles that were intriguing and different. Directed by Jeremy Paul Kagan, 1977’s “Heroes” had Winkler playing Jack Dunne, a Vietnam veteran suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). After escaping from a VA hospital, he planned to become a worm farmer in California. Along the way, he met Carol Bell (Sally Field), a woman who joined him on his trek to California. Henry Winkler’s performance in “Heroes” earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Drama film. Winkler brought a lot to the table in 1982’s “Night Shift.” He played Charles “Chuck” Lumley, a former stockbroker who quit his Wall Street job to work at a New York City morgue. Bill “Blaze” Blazejowski (Michael Keaton), Chuck’s new co-worker, was a fasttalking guy with such great “ideas” as edible paper to eliminate garbage. For his work

in “Night Shift,” Henry Winkler was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor (Motion Picture Musical or Comedy) while Keaton won the Kansas City Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor.

1998’s “The Waterboy” focused on Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler), a 31-year-old man who became the water boy for the South-Central Louisiana University Mud Dogs. After being taunted by the team for being a water boy, Coach Klein (Winkler) encouraged Booby to fight back, which helped him become a force to be reckoned with on the football field. Unfortunately, Bobby’s mother Helen (Kathy Bates) didn’t want her son playing that “foosball.” Henry Winkler’s Coach Klein had some great moments trying to convince Helen to let Bobby join his team.

Currently Henry Winkler is part of the cast of HBO’s “Barry,” a series where Bill Hader plays the title role of Barry Berkman, a former U.S. Marine turned hitman. Winkler plays Gene Cousineau, an acting teacher who becomes a mentor to Barry. This popular HBO show is in its final season, so it will be interesting to see what Henry Winkler does next.

Moore on Life: Chicken out

Someone’s in the doghouse – my husband! I gave him one job…one teensy, little basic job – change the bathroom hand towels.

I ran into the house the other day and needed to step into the bathroom to do what people do when they need to go into the bathroom only what I needed to do was of an urgent nature. Okay, TMI, but it has to do with the story so get that visual out of your mind and let’s move on.

So instead of using the bathroom in our bedroom, I made a rush to the nearest one which happened to be the guest bathroom. That’s when the horror hit me.

I had just finished washing my hands and reached up to grab the towel when the shocking sight smacked me square in the eyeballs. What could cause such a reaction you ask? Well, I’m not going to ask for moral support from you men out there because I suspect you’re all in cahoots over this and will fall in lockstep with my husband who is a dedicated member of your Man Club. But the ladies will understand the jolt I felt.

Now, as I reached for the towel, I discovered that it was red checkered and covered with chickens… CHICKENS I say! Do you know what that means people? It was a kitchen towel…not a bathroom towel! A dingy, frayed kitchen towel used to dry pots and pans and mop up spilled gravy!

And this first world problem could only be made worse by the realization that the night before we had company over and of course, one half of that compa-

ny was none other than my neighbor, the annoying Mrs. Pilkinson.

And yes, she did excuse herself in the middle of playing dominoes to use my guest bathroom and no doubt she was confronted by that very same checkered chicken towel to wipe her paws. And further, you can bet your sweet dose of judgmental criticism that she took a catty little picture of it and sent it to everyone in the neighborhood announcing that I stocked my bathrooms with nasty gravy mop up towels like some uncouth baboon. Arrgh!

My husband just came in the door. Boy, is he going to get it!

“Hey, who's been using my best screwdriver to dig up weeds?!” he yelled.

Oopsie. I guess we’re even.

LIFESTYLE: Ensure your boat is ready for the water with this checklist

No matter how much experience you have on the water, prepping your boat – and your passengers –before leaving the dock can make for a more enjoyable experience.

To prepare for a safe and comfortable trip, review this pre-departure checklist to ensure your vessel is in good working order and wellstocked for the adventure:

• Documentation – Have all required documentation for planned activities, including boat registration, fishing permits and boater education cards readily accessible.

• Float plan – File a float plan with a responsible party who will remain on land. Provide contact info, explain where you’re going, when you intend to return and what to do in case he or she doesn’t hear from you.

• Weather forecast – Always check the forecast before you head out on the water. To regularly monitor any changes, keep a handheld radio onboard.

• Fuel – Before leaving, check that your fuel level is adequate for the trip and that other fluids, like oil and coolant, are at the proper levels.

• Batteries – Check to make sure the boat’s battery, as well as battery-operated items like flashlights and handheld radios, are fully charged and operational.

• Lights – Check to make sure you have properly functioning navigation and instrument lights and pack a flashlight, as well.

• Life jackets – Ensure you have at least one U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal floatation device per passenger with a minimum of two onboard. If your boat is longer than 16 feet, you’ll also need a throwable device.

• Anchor – Keep at least one anchor, attached to an anchor line, and at least two fenders for docking onboard.

• Bilge – Before launching your boat, ensure the bilge is dry, clear of waste and has a properly functioning pump.

• Fire extinguisher – Keep a U.S. Coast Guard-approved fire extinguisher securely mounted in an accessible place.

• Distress signals – Store flares and day signals in a dry, accessible location and ensure all passengers onboard know how to use them. Also have a noise-making device, such as an air horn, bell or whistle, capable of producing a 4-second blast audible for at least 1/2 mile readily available.

• Tools – Keep a basic toolbox onboard with commonly used tools and spare parts like wrenches, screwdrivers, batteries, fuel filters, hull plugs and light bulbs.

• First-aid kit – Keep a well-stocked first-aid kit –and extra sunscreen – in an accessible location in case of accidents.
