The Big Hoax There have been many frauds of historic proportions – for example, the financial pyramid scheme for which Charles Ponzi was sent to prison in the 1920s, and for which Franklin D. Roosevelt was praised in the 1930s, when he called it Social Security. In our own times, Bernie Madoff’s hoax has made headlines. But the biggest hoax of the past two generations is still going strong – namely, the hoax that statistical differences in outcomes for different groups are due to the way other people treat those groups. The latest example of this hoax is the joint crusade of the Department of Education and the Department of Justice against schools that discipline black males more often than other students. According to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, this disparity in punishment violates the “promise” of “equity.” Just who made this promise remains unclear, and why equity should mean equal outcomes despite differences in behavior is even more unclear. This crusade by Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is only the latest in a long line of fraudulent arguments based on statistics. If black males get punished more often than Asian American females, does that mean that it is somebody else’s fault? That it is impossible that black males are behaving differently from Asian American females? Nobody in his right mind believes that. But that is the unspoken premise, without which the punishment statistics prove nothing about “equity.” What is the purpose or effect of this whole exercise by the Department of Education and the Department of Justice? To help black students or to secure the black vote in an election year by seeming to be coming to the rescue of blacks from white oppression? Among the many serious problems of ghetto schools is the legal difficulty of getting rid of disruptive hoodlums, a mere handful of whom can be enough to destroy the education of a far larger number of other black students – and with it destroy their chances for a better life. Judges have already imposed too many legalistic procedures on schools that are more appropriate for a courtroom. “Due process” rules that are essential for courts can readily become “undue process” in a

school setting, when letting clowns and thugs run amok, while legalistic procedures to suspend or expel them drag on. It is a formula for educational and social disaster. Now Secretary Duncan and Attorney General Holder want to play the race card in an election year, at the expense of the education of black students. Make no mistake about it, the black students who go to school to get an education are the main victims of the classroom disrupters whom Duncan and Holder are trying to protect. What they are more fundamentally trying to protect are the black votes which are essential for Democrats. For that, blacks must be constantly depicted as under siege from whites, so that Democrats can be seen as their rescuers. Promoting paranoia translates into votes. It is a very cynical political game, despite all the lofty rhetoric used to disguise it. Whether the current generation of black students get a decent education is infinitely more important than whether the current generation of Democratic politicians hang on to their jobs. Too many of the intelligentsia – both black and white – jump on the statistical bandwagon, and see statistical differences as proof of maltreatment, not only in schools but in jobs, in mortgage lending and in many other things. Some act as if their role is to protect the image of blacks by blaming their problems on whites. But the truth is far more important than racial image. Wherever we want to go, we can only get there from where we are. Not where we think we are, or wish we are, or where we want others to think we are, but where we are in fact right now. But political spin and pious euphemisms don’t tell us where we are. After a while, such rhetorical exercises don’t even fool others. If we don’t have the truth, we don’t have anything to start with and build on. A big start toward the truth would be getting rid of the kinds of statistical hoaxes being promoted by Secretary of Education Duncan and Attorney General Holder. © 2012 Creators.com

MARCH 21, 2012 WEST NEWSMAGAZINE

NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM

letters to the editor Good citizens To the Editor: In a recent edition of West Newsmagazine there was a letter titled, “Grey-haired Brigade.” I have a few comments regarding several statements made. Before doing so, let me give my credentials. If you looked at my driver’s license you would note my birthdate reflects being in the senior category for numerous years. First of all, have no idea what a “grey-haired brigade” is. Furthermore, I would not want to be a part of something that appears to encourage narrow-mindedness. The writer indicates the “youngsters” voted the present administration into office. As such, any problems are directly caused by their age group. Is it honestly believed that not one elder statesman voted that way? I doubt it. Patriotism was quite the theme of the letter. Didn’t these “youngsters” do their patriotic thing by voting? Did you read through the remainder of the newspaper? Much of it was dedicated to the medical profession. Notice the apparent age of the individuals shown? These “youngsters” are the ones who will ultimately find a cure for cancer and other dreaded diseases. Their young counterparts in other fields are the future Warren Buffets, Bill Gates, George W. Buschs and yes, even the Barrack Obamas. Give them credit. To say the majority of “youngsters” do not know the words to the National Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance, or where to place their hand when saying them, is really an exaggeration. How many of our senior counterparts cannot recite them? At sporting events, notice how many people, old and young, are talking, drinking their beer, smoking their cigarettes, talking on their cellphones, not removing their hats, when they should be giving respect to our country? To condemn a complete group of people, regardless of age, because they voted a different way than you did is just as nonpatriotic as the other actions that were mentioned. One more last comment. Regarding names. I am curious as how you refer to the “youngsters” when they do something that irritates you? I will step down from my turn on the soap box with, does there have to be a “Greyhaired Brigade” or a “Young Brigade?” Can’t we all just be called, and strive to be, “Good Citizens?” David R. Tognoni Manchester

A modest proposal To the Editor: There has been a lot of national discussion recently regarding the high drop-out rates in our public schools. President Obama mentioned it in his State of The Union address (in January). Studies have shown that there is a direct correlation between drop-out rates and poverty, all of which is not only terribly expensive for taxpayers, but also condemns many young people to a life where there are very limited opportunities for personal or financial advancement. This is not a new problem. We, as a society, have thrown money at the problem, tried to engage more parents in taking an active role in the education of their children, hired more teachers to deal with those who underperform, etc. All to little or no avail. So here is a modest proposal I hope warrants consideration: It costs taxpayers about $10k per year to educate one child. So 12 years of education costs taxpayers about $120k per student. We, as a society, have made significant investments in all children so they can at least get a high school diploma. When someone decides to drop out of school after nine years of education, they have essentially “stolen” $90k of taxpayer funds. That is, we have wasted that amount on that student. So here is the deal going forward: If they drop out before getting their high school diploma, then they owe the taxpayers $10k per year for every year they are “short.” In the above example, the person who drops out after ninth grade owes society $30k as repayment for the $90k of taxpayer funds they wasted. The repayment is due no later than their 20th birthday. And if they fail to pay, they go to prison for one year for each $10k they are “short.” And what to do with those who do graduate by age 20? We give them a $10k voucher to continue their higher education at a trade school or any school of their choice. The voucher must be used within one year of graduation from high school. Following this path would dramatically increase graduation rates, and would help students with the financial cost of higher education. Surely this approach would be far less costly than the terrible situation we have today, where there are generations of families totally dependent on the government dole because they decided to drop out. B. Hall Chesterfield

Questioning global warming Further discussion of To the Editor: Wildwood Town Center Plan “A cold wind blows,” (West Newsmagazine, Feb. 1) points out that physicist Ivar Giaever recently resigned from the American Physical Society over the Society’s stance that there is incontrovertible evidence to support global warming. Giaever has not, according to Google Scholar, published any work on global warming. Nobel winner though he is, this calls into question whether he’s an expert on the subject. The editorial also stated that “our pesky planet has spent the last decade getting gradually cooler.” Such a broad claim needs to be supported. Where does it come from? Was it published in a scientific journal? A recent study, the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project, confirmed earlier studies that found the climate has been warming. What’s interesting about this study is that it was funded in part by the Charles Koch Charitable Foundation, widely seen as a source of money for initiatives that have fought efforts to curb greenhouse-gas emissions. Also, when the study began, project chair Richard Muller was skeptical that the earth was warming. Now he is convinced that it is. Similarly, the vast majority of climate scientists are convinced that global warming is caused by human activity. The Feb.1 editorial, like the Dec. 9, 2009 editorial, suggests that these scientists are corrupt – fudging their work so as to receive funding. Is there something about studying climate that attracts or creates corrupt people? If I were a scientist more interested in funding than the truth, I’d go where the money is – to some of the wealthiest companies in the world: ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron, and ConocoPhillips, all companies with very compelling reasons to assure us that using their products does not cause global warming. To be a scientist, one must use the scientific method. Scientists have used this method to make things we trust our lives to every day. We trust that bridges and buildings won’t collapse when we’re on or in them, that water coming out of the tap is safe to drink, that electric appliances won’t shock us, that elevators we get into won’t drop, that the brakes on our cars will work, that nuclear reactors won’t melt down, that planes and helicopters won’t fall from the sky. Life is full of examples of implicit trust in science. So why don’t we trust science when it comes to climate? Dirk Maas Town & Country

To the Editor: West Newsmagazine recently published letters by Raymond V. Manton, Jr. (February 22) and Ed Thibeault (March 7) criticizing Ed Marshall (Ward 2 candidate for Mayor) and four other Wildwood City Council (WCC) members: Holly Parks (Ward 2), Ron James (Ward 6), John McCullough (Ward 7) and Jim Kranz (Ward 7) regarding the Town Center Master Plan. Either Mr. Manton and Mr. Thibeault do not understand the legislative process at the WCC, or they are deliberately attempting to mislead Wildwood voters regarding this issue. The facts regarding recent votes on the Town Center issue are these: Ed Marshall and the other four Wildwood City Council members singled out on Feb. 22 are voting with the majority on the WCC on this issue. Two recent votes on a Town Center Plan endorsed by Ed Marshall each resulted in 11 to 5 votes in favor of the plan Mr. Marshall supports. The only reason the plan favored by Mr. Marshall has not been enacted is that it was twice vetoed by Mayor Tim Woerther. Both of these mayoral vetoes were reported by West Newsmagazine. The March 7 letter went even further. Mr. Thibeault implied that Ed Marshall, all by himself, was responsible for thwarting his vision for Town Center. There is only one person in Wildwood government who can stop legislation that has been voted on and approved by the majority of the WCC, and that person is the current mayor, Tim Woerther. It is he who is holding up the majority plan for Town Center. Mr. Manton and Mr. Thibeault have decided that if they can’t get their exact plan passed by the WCC, they will take their ball and go home. The mayor is facilitating this hard line stance. Ed Marshall, Holly Parks, Ron James, John McCullough and Jim Kranz are voting in what they believe is the best interests of their constituents. That’s what we elected them to do. I agree that Wildwood citizens have the power to assure that the city of Wildwood takes the right path on April 3. Ed Marshall is a consensus builder who listens to the views of all Wildwood residents, not just a select few. It would be far better for Wildwood if the “my way or the highway” governing style of the current mayor and his allies is replaced on April 3. Don Wenkel Wildwood Ward 2

Got the blues?

EDITORIAL

Temporary heroes Spring is here. The season replaces the things that were lost last year; new buds emerge, the bare spots get covered again, flowers blushingly usher forth. It’s a season of renewal. Spring is here. But it never lasts, and never will. The seasons are temporary; green will fade to brown, brown will fade away. Like the seasons our heroes, who once seemed so permanent, are becoming as temporary as the green of the grass. They are here today and gone tomorrow. For us in St. Louis, there will be an odd reminder of that when #5 does not appear anywhere on the field for the hometown Cardinals. The difference between Albert Pujols and the green of the grass is that Albert isn’t really gone; he is simply elsewhere. He is estranged from us, but not vanished – which may hurt the worst of all.

Yet, this is the era we live in. Every major sport now features a famously displaced mega-star. Peyton Manning is gone from Indianapolis. Lebron James took his talents from Cleveland to South Beach. The hometown hero, the old concept of loyalty between a star and a franchise, has ended. Our sports heroes are as temporary as the seasons now. This phenomenon, however, is not limited to sports. Our entire culture has transitioned to a far shorter attention span. We have less loyalty to our celebrities. Cary Grant would have been a movie star if he lived for 200 years. Frank Sinatra was a musical icon until the day he died. Will Johnny Depp stand the test of time? Will Lady Gaga? It’s doubtful. Even our technology is temporary. The third generation iPad is out just as the phrase “tablet” enters our lexicon. Massive rear projection televisions litter the basements of homes that now feature an LCD or LED television. What are we to make of this impermanence? Where has Joe DiMaggio gone, or better still, Stan Musial? The thought of Sam Bradford one day playing in a different uniform seems not just possible, but expected. What of those young St. Louis Blues players driving area hockey fans into frenzy? They will one day be Blackhawks or Canucks or Stars. It is nearly a foregone conclusion. So this spring, like the springs of the past 100 years, baseball players gather to remove the rust from their games and begin new seasons in so many new towns. Albert Pujols is in Anaheim, Prince Fielder, Detroit; Carlos Beltran is a St. Louis Cardinal along with formerAstro Lance Berkman and former-Rockie Matt Holliday and former-Brave Rafael Furcal. The game, and our heroes, seems less sacred now. They seem more like annuals, less like perennials as they used to seem. Imagine had Ozzie Smith done a backflip to begin the Los Angeles Dodgers season. Imagine had Bob Gibson brushed back a hitter wearing Yankees pinstripes. Is it better or worse now? It is probably simply different. Our heroes are still heroes, but we are aware that they are temporary heroes now. We will root just as hard for the Redbirds, and we will await the renewal of another spring.

News Br iefs BALLWIN New signs to advise motorists of double fines Any motorist not mindful of the doublefine postings on a number of residential streets in Ballwin soon will receive some help. No, they are not eliminating them. The double fines will continue to be applied for any traffic violations in those posted zones even though the Ballwin Board of Aldermen earlier had considered reducing the number of roads posted to five, less than a fourth of the original number. But after deciding at its March 12 meeting to maintain all the double-fine areas, the board also approved a $7,500 appropriation to pay for new, larger signs advising motorists they are in one of the higher-penalty zones. The new signs will meet state requirements for such postings. Ballwin aldermen were scheduled to consider an ordinance officially needed to reduce the number of double-fine zones at the early March meeting, a move recommended by the police department and endorsed on a 5-4 vote in February. However, Alderman Kathy Kerlagon asked to amend the proposal by including Richland Meadows, one of the streets on the list of those to be cut. Kerlagon noted her

request was based on citizen input from the affected area. After some discussion of the amendment, the streets remaining on the double-fine list and reasons for selecting areas originally designated for special enforcement, the board opted to make no changes in the higher-penalty zones. The double-fine zone policy was adopted in 2008.

Ballwin deer problem prompts cooperation The city of Ballwin plans to check with other nearby municipalities to see if a common effort can be developed to manage the deer population. Alderman Mark Harder made the suggestion at the March 12 meeting of the city’s Board of Aldermen. Board consensus was that Mayor Tim Pogue and city administration officials should contact other West County communities to determine how to deal with the problem that already has prompted different responses in other area cities. Although there was no decision on what approach to implement or how soon, comments noted a plan in Creve Coeur appeared to be simple and straightforward. In that community, a property owner or

Woody, who previously served as a substitute teacher and girls basketball coach for Parkway Central High School, admitted to transporting a 15-year-old girl across state lines to his parents’ home in Illinois with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. A statement released by the Parkway School District after Woody was charged last October read: “During the 2008-09 and 2009-10 school years, the individual served as the ninth grade girls basketball coach and as an assistant track coach at Central High. He did not have a teaching contract with Parkway, but occasionally served as

ELLISVILLE To hunt or not to hunt? The Ellisville City Council at its March 7 work session considered whether to allow bow and crossbow hunting on private property. Three City Council members including Dawn Anglin (District 1), Michelle Murray (District 3) and Troy Pieper (District 2), as well as Mayor Matt Pirrello said they would support hunting as long as it excluded firearms and required anyone who participated to own at least three acres of property. Councilmembers Linda Reel (District 2) and Clark Compton (District 1) said they would not support such a proposal and did not like the idea of being able to hunt on private property. If the regulations were to go into effect, Pirrello said this would only affect a limited amount of residents because most residents do not have three acres of property on which to hunt. The council compared the hunting regulations of other area municipalities. The cities of Chesterfield, Clarkson Valley, Manchester and St. Louis County all allow some form of hunting with a minimum of one acre of property. The city of Wildwood requires three acres. Ballwin is the only municipality that does not allow hunting at all. The City Council plans on discussing the matter further at an upcoming meeting.

WILDWOOD Rural Internet update The Rural Internet Access Committee in February met to discuss the progress of negotiations with Charter Communications on the extension of its current service into the underserved and unserved Internet areas of the city. The one remaining topic was how the city would recoup its cost from customers of the new service, which it had sought through Charter’s monthly billing system. The company said this type of billing system would not work and was an unacceptable method for the city to recover its money. Without Charter’s support, before the system could be installed, a major charge to the customers seeking the service would be assessed. If enough prepayments were not received, the city would then have to fund the system, which was not supported by committee members. The committee later discussed the possibility of financing options for $3 million that Charter would require to move forward with the project. The committee approved a motion to send to Charter that said the committee had strong reservations about any substantial prepayment amount to potential customers and that some other method should be considered for the city’s recoupment, preferably through a billing mechanism associated with Charter. If Charter does not come up with another recoupment option by March 31, the city would seek other bids for rural Internet proposals.

CANDIDATES FOR MAYOR In advance of the April 3 election, mayoral candidates were asked: 1) Why are you running for this office, and what are your top priorities if elected? 2) What are your qualifications for holding public office? 3) What do you feel is the biggest issue facing your municipality and how will you deal with it?

CREVE COEUR Barry Glantz 1) Creve Coeur is the “heart” of where I have always lived. My parents still reside in the house where I was raised, and my wife, Sheri (president of the Ladue School Board), and I, along with our three children, have made this city our home as well. My residential architectural firm is also located in Creve Coeur. This city continues to be the center of my life, and I am committed to maintaining and improving the high quality of life that makes Creve Coeur such a wonderful place to live, raise a family, work, play and retire. 2) My qualifications for mayor include: Creve Coeur City Council, 1992 - 2000; City Council president, 1996 -1997; Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission, 2002 - 2011; Creve Coeur resident and business owner; Board of Directors, Home Builders Association of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri; Board of Directors, National Association of Home Builders; Board of Governors, Westwood Country Club; and Board member of St. Louis County Building Commission. These leadership positions are indicative of my ability to work cooperatively and collaboratively with a wide variety of constituencies who have diverse interests throughout the community. 3) Creve Coeur is fortunate to have so many wonderful amenities – parks, recreational opportunities, reliable city services, our own police force, diverse businesses, and stellar medical and life science centers to name just a few. As mayor, I will protect and promote these valuable assets while encouraging fiscal responsibility of taxpayers’ dollars. In order to preserve our status as one of the most desirable communities in the region, I will be a positive ambassador for our city, advocating for and promoting a thoughtful balance between our residential neighborhoods and complementary business corridors. A mayor doesn’t legislate, he advocates! Laura Bryant 1) In 2001, I first ran for Creve Coeur

City Council with a promise that I’d pay close attention to all four wards. For doing precisely that, the Chamber of Commerce selected me as 2006 Legislator of the Year “for outstanding leadership, for dedicated service to the businesses and residents, and for commitment to the growth and vitality of the city of Creve Coeur.” As mayor, I will continue operating with the same dedication and sense of accountability. In addition, after learning so much, I intend to share all the “best practices” I helped identify and implement along the way. 2) In 1997, I was appointed to the Creve Coeur Planning and Zoning Commission. In 2001, I ran for City Council, knocking on voters’ doors with a simple message: “I don’t believe you should have to hire an attorney to live in Creve Coeur.” For the next 10 years – until being “term-limited” per the city charter – I strongly advocated for my constituents in all four wards. I also served on the National League of Cities’ Finance and Intergovernmental Relations policy committee ... was appointed to Donald Danforth Plant Science Center’s PR Council and Maryville University Legal Studies Advisory Committee ... and joined the Missouri Sunshine Coalition. 3) Creve Coeur is unique with diverse neighborhoods, delightful parks, first-class public and private schools, unparalleled medical facilities and a robust business community. So why, in a community as blessed as ours, do elected officials keep resorting to tactics like eminent domain abuse, financial bailouts (for Transportation Development Districts) and misleading tax increases that undermine the public trust and sense of fairness in our local democracy? I firmly believe that Creve Coeur citizens and business owners deserve to be informed and treated equitably, with the Golden Rule in mind: “Always treat others as you would want to be treated yourself.”

DES PERES Richard Lahr 1) I am running for reelection to facilitate the continuation of the positive forward momentum already in place in Des Peres. Des Peres today is considered by many in the region to be one of the best managed most efficient municipalities in the region, offering a comprehensive portfolio of municipal services. Our Parks and Recreation department is regularly recognized statewide for an innovative and extensive package of parks and wellness program offerings. The Lodge Des Peres is not only an asset for Des Peres residents but has

evolved into an asset for the region. As we look to the future, our challenge will be to ensure continued delivery of the services our residents deserve and expect. 2) It has been my good fortune to represent the residents of Des Peres as mayor for the past 12 years. Prior to being elected mayor I was an alderman representing the second ward. I hold multiple degrees in business management and finance and have been employed in the financial sector my entire career. I am also a graduate of The Truman School of Public Affairs, Academy of Leadership at The University of Missouri. I also have served as a director of the Missouri Municipal League and currently serve on the Executive Board of The Louis County Municipal League, recently serving as League president. My legislative experience both locally and in Jefferson City has been and will continue to be, I hope, an asset to the city. 3) Des Peres is located at the epicenter of St. Louis County. Because of this, balancing the priorities of our resident business community while maintaining the residential character of our neighborhoods and community as a whole is always a challenge and a priority of mine. Des Peres is fortunate to enter the future from a position of strength. Our conservative fiscal practices have earned the city a AAA bond rating from the Standard and Poor’s organization, One of the few municipalities statewide to garner such lofty status. My commitment as mayor will be to build on our past success, continue to exercise strong fiscal discipline and lead a government that is responsive to both its residents and resident businesses.

ELLISVILLE Dawn Anglin 1) I would like to be Ellisville’s next mayor to expand my role in public service and continue to strengthen the sense of community in Ellisville. Goals: increase public involvement with additional Town Hall meetings; ensure Ellisville is fiscally and environmentally responsible; and continue efforts to expand existing retail base with quality developments by working alongside local developers and staff. 2) I am a 14-year resident of Ellisville, married, and have two children. I have five years of proven service/experience as an Ellisville District 1 City Council member, and am actively involved in our community: Ellisville Community Farmers’ Market Board of Directors and volunteer, 2010 to present; Ellisville Dog Park Com-

mittee, 2011 to present; Ellisville Elementary PTO, 2005 to 2010; City of Ellisville 75th Anniversary Committee, 2006 to 2007. My years of community service illustrate my dedication to the city and my ability to effectively work with others. 3) There is a need to increase public involvement and awareness without fear mongering. We can accomplish this with additional Town Hall meetings. These meetings are informational and an excellent way to encourage feedback from residents. This feedback provides needed guidance to elected officials and gives face-time with constituents. Equally important is the need to increase our existing retail tax base. We must find ways to attract quality businesses making Ellisville a destination. Lastly, maintaining the level of service and completing capital improvements while staying within the constraints of the annual budget is a challenge from year to year. Michelle (Shelly) Murray 1) I’m running for mayor because I have a desire to continue serving Ellisville. Being a City Council member has provided me the necessary experience and training to know how to be effective in this leadership role. My top priorities are to continue making choices that keep the city’s budget balanced while preserving citizen services; using technology advancements to further operational efficiencies; promoting the city as a prime destination for business, especially attracting new entities for our existing, unoccupied retail and office space; and lastly, championing “our continued participation in the Great Streets Initiative, which is important for our long-term economic health. 2) I have five years of governing experience as a District 3 representative on the Ellisville City Council, including two (non-consecutive) years as Mayor Pro Tempore. Additionally, I have 15-plus years of private sector experience that includes marketing, business development, social media, fiscal oversight, project and account management and broadcasting in both small business and corporate settings. I am also a coordinator and volunteer for community service projects. 3) The biggest issue is the still struggling economy, coupled with the competition for business that exists among municipalities in St. Louis County. Successfully dealing with both conditions depends on our ability to promote Ellisville as the ideal destinaSee CANDIDATES, page 15

MARCH 21, 2012 WEST NEWSMAGAZINE

NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM CANDIDATES, from page 13 tion for economic investment. I plan to use my marketing, business development and social media skills to go on the offense in promoting Ellisville, crafting specific marketing plans to attract a variety of businesses, ideally those that don’t have a presence in the area, adding to the uniqueness of our city. Robert Srote 1) I am running for public office to become part of the solution to America’s broken political system. The success of Ellisville directly affects the success of our neighboring cities, ultimately influencing the strength of our state and nation. I am adamant about positively influencing Ellisville by providing common sense, ethical leadership while addressing citizens’ concerns with the candor they deserve. My top priority is to make Ellisville a better community by integrating my ideas with the concerns, opinions and ideas of its citizens. This election is not about me, it is about Ellisville and who can best represent our community’s future interests. 2) As an author, architect, and MBA graduate I am uniquely qualified for Ellisville’s mayoral position. My extensive research from 2008-2009 on America’s recession resulted in the published book, “Wildfire: The Legislation That Ignited the Great Recession,” (January 2011) outlining causes and remedies for America’s economic downturn. As a residential architect I keenly understand community planning, development and zoning; essential competencies to ensure a sustainable, economically prosperous community. In addition, I have the added benefit of a MBA degree, providing me with the practical skills to effectively negotiate with and attract new and unique businesses to our area. 3) The biggest issue facing, not only Ellisville, but most of America is the lack of a common sense, practical, honest and ethical approach to governance. As I have gone door-to-door campaigning over the last several months this issue appears to be the primary concern of our hard-working, family-oriented community. As mayor of Ellisville, I will provide common sense leadership, stripping away all unnecessary layers of bureaucracy resulting in a lean and efficient municipality capable of handling citizens’ concerns with the utmost proficiency. I intend to bring to the table an apparently not-so-obvious leadership approach beginning with common sense and ending with integrity. Adam Q. Paul 1) I want new leadership. I want to reinvent Ellisville. I think it is too easy to say

“I want to continue the Great Streets Initiative” or “bring new business to our area.” It sounds great in concept but we never actually see things materialize. Instead, look at your monthly bills: cell, gas, electric, internet, water, etc. Look at how much we pay to the city each month. Garbage isn’t free, is it? I want a return on our investment, for us to operate like a family-owned business, and to start our own initiatives to gentrify our city. Not five or 20 years down the road, now! I am tired of hearing excuses putting blame on the poor economy. Ellisville will miss 100 percent of the shots we don’t take and I feel that in our current state, we are not even holding a ball. 2) Out of the four, I truly believe I am the most qualified candidate. Why? I am not an expiring City Council member. I am not Mayor Pro Tempore. I refuse to run a “shaking hands, kissing babies” campaign and blame the economy for our mistakes. In our city’s current condition, these are excellent qualifications. Career politicians only listen to financial supporters and constituents; nothing changes. If elected, I would bring 11 years of pure business and administration experience. For the last seven years, I have been with the sixth largest IT Consulting firm in the nation managing 40-plus contractors and projects at Fortune 500 clients. I oversee large budgets, execute contracts/RFPs/RFQs, negotiations, and operations. I graduated from Illinois State University with two degrees in Telecommunications Management and Computer Science. 3) Our top priority should be to gentrify Ellisville. My wife said it best, “people like to live and shop where it’s pretty.” We have too much competition within our neighboring municipalities for businesses to choose from. We have become complacent over the years and we paying for it today. Fortunately, it isn’t too late. We can still accomplish this and do it without subsidizing 33 percent for a Walmart. It is imperative for long-term success that the City Council members listen to the overwhelming public outcry and the negative recommendation from the TIF commission and vote this down. We need to start focusing on making smart, effective and efficient business decisions.

MANCHESTER David L. Willson 1) Although I am officially retired, for the past four years, I have been very active and involved as mayor of the city of Manchester.

CANDIDATES, from page 15 structure repairs and storm water concerns. In addition, hiring a new City Administrator is one of my priorities. Of additional importance is filling unoccupied business locations. Although economic issues have affected the area and sales tax revenues are lower than anticipated, the city of Manchester is financially strong and a balanced budget is continually maintained. 2) A sales background, an outgoing personality, and an interest in and knowledge of the city of Manchester are beneficial in performing mayoral duties. I stop and visit with our local business owners. I represent the city of Manchester at the St. Louis County Municipal League meetings where I am a member of the Executive Board; the Missouri Municipal League where I am a member of the Resolutions Committee; the Lafayette Mayors’ Organization; and the Metro Mayors’ Organization. I attend meetings with State Legislators and St. Louis County officials, and also am involved with the West St. Louis County Chamber of Commerce. 3) Highly important future challenges facing Manchester include infrastructure improvements and repairs and storm water concerns. A plan for federal grant funding for some infrastructure repairs is in progress. In other instances, city staff, supplies and equipment will be utilized for certain repairs and replacements as needed. Storm water issues will involve studies, funding and attainment of necessary easements for the projects. As most cities have unoccupied business locations, Manchester city officials continue pursuing future business prospects. Continued excellent services to residents, including free trash, yard waste and recycling pickup, as well as limb chipping, street sweeping and snow plowing are also extremely important.

WILDWOOD Ed Marshall 1) I will work together with the elected and appointed officials to continue the planned sustainable growth of the city. The primary responsibility of the mayor is to preside over the Council Meetings and maintain respect and civility during public meetings; the issues are discussed, debated and voted on by the elected council members. I will represent all of the individuals that make Wildwood a great place to live, work and raise a family. 2) I have served as a City Council member (Ward Two) from 1997 -2004 serving as Chairman of Administration and Public Works, Council Representative to Planning and Zoning, City Hall Committee, and Planning Economic Development Committee during the period.

I was elected mayor of Wildwood (2004-2008); served as a St. Louis County Municipal League Executive Board (20072008); was elected Council member (Ward Two) 2009-2012 3) The city was planned using a revenue stream that had been established by St. Louis County 30 years ago which provided revenue to cities without regard to where the sales tax was generated; this has been an issue every year since Wildwood’s incorporation. State and county revenues have been greatly reduced due to the economy; unfortunately several proposals are being considered at the state level, but none of these appear to favor Wildwood. I will monitor expenses closely to ensure the best use of predicted lower sales tax revenue; a potential shortfall of $2,400,000 per year. I will not support a property tax as a solution to reduced revenues. Tim Woerther 1) I seek to maintain the fiscally conservative path for the city of Wildwood and the small government structure that serves its residents so well through efficient use of the resident tax dollar. Seek out and listen to the desires of its residents ensuring their involvement on major decisions which impact all residents. Continue to follow and implement the Master Plan for the city of Wildwood, which has seen Wildwood become a very desirable place to live, work and play in the St. Louis area. 2) As demonstrated in my first term, the ability and requirement to put Wildwood residents first in every aspect of city affairs, whether the consideration of new development, planning the city’s direction, or the way that meetings are conducted. This results with more information being provided to residents who have a direct stake in the city’s success. I will continue to seek ways to better execute the vision and mission of the city of Wildwood, benefiting residents. This results in planning and policies which have raised our property values while making Wildwood truly unique. 3) The adoption of the revised Town Center Plan and continuing the growth of Wildwood’s “downtown” district are a top priority. Adoption will continue to put Wildwood forward as a model to residents and communities that surround us. Adoption of the citizen committee recommended, Planning and Zoning Commission approved plan serves as a hallmark of Wildwood’s ongoing efforts to ensure active resident involvement in the direction and development of the community. Adoption will provide assurance to those that have made an investment in Wildwood and reinforce that Wildwood’s municipal government listens to their residents by taking their recommendations to heart.

Local baker David McArthur’s story resonates with Romney By CAROL ENRIGHT When his congressman voted in favor of a cap-and-trade energy bill in the summer of 2009, David McArthur, owner of McArthur’s Bakery, with stores in Lemay, Kirkwood and Chesterfield, was so angry he used the sign on his South County store to send a message: “Russ Carnahan Voted to Close Us and Other Small Businesses.” McArthur’s sign gained national attention and led to an invitation from Fox News to appear on the Mike Huckabee Show. Since that first appearance, McArthur has been a small business regular on Fox News. On March 3, Huckabee hosted a forum on jobs. He invited McArthur to join a panel questioning presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum. McArthur told Romney how his son David “Moose” McArthur suffered a traumatic brain injury while serving as a Marine in Afghanistan. “The government has repeatedly denied services to him because his wounds aren’t visible. He will never be able to return to the regular workforce,” McArthur said. He then asked the GOP frontrunner a question that struck an emotional chord with Romney and viewers nationwide. “Sir, will you look me in the eye and tell me he will be taken care of?”

Visibly moved, Romney responded, “To those who have put everything on the line, we owe them everything that they need.” McArthur must have made an impression, because Romney mentioned his exchange with the baker in his Super Tuesday speech from Boston on March 6. In an interview with West Newsmagazine, McArthur said his question to Romney went directly to the issue of jobs. “President Obama keeps talking about initiatives for businesses to hire veterans. Well, you’re not taking care of the veterans when they get home, so they’re in the right mindset, physical condition or education so they can get those jobs.” McArthur calls the Veteran’s Administration (VA) “a nightmare” and said that it takes an average of four months to process a claim. “If you’re in the VA and you’ve got a cyst, it’s four months before they give you approval to get it looked at. You pray to God it’s not cancerous,” he said. McArthur said that Moose, who is now 22, trimmed 100 pounds off his 287-pound football player frame to make it into the Marines after high school. “That was his devotion to the Corps,” said McArthur. But McArthur said the military has not

lived up to its promise to care for his son. “He signed a contract with the government that said we’re going to take care of you for the rest of your life. And if you get hurt or you get killed with us, we’re going to take care of your family. The government lies.” McArthur said his two passions are his family and his business. When it comes to the latter, he is looking for a candidate who will “get government out of the way.” “What’s killing small business today is the fact that rules and regulations on both us and our providers are so intrusive that our cost of doing business is beyond the capability of keeping the customer,” said McArthur. McArthur said that government regulations are driving up his overhead and his suppliers’ costs. “My food costs have gone up. My packaging costs have gone up. And when my food and packaging costs go up, who pays for that? You do.” Just days before McArthur appeared on Huckabee’s show, the VA told his son that his claim would be processed in four to six

months. Three days later, on March 6, the VA called back to tell him that his check was in the mail. “Which is fantastic ... but it shows the audacity of the system,” McArthur said. He acknowledged that he has received calls from doctors, locally and across the country, offering to treat Moose’s brain injury for free. He is happy for his son, but – as he told Romney – Moose is worried about other vets who are not getting the care they need. “(They are) his brothers. That’s his concern,” said McArthur.

Ellisville TIF Commission opposes financing for Walmart By SARAH WILSON The Ellisville Tax Increment Financing Commission on March 5 held a public hearing to discuss whether to recommend financial help in the form of a TIF to the City Council in order to develop a Walmart Super Center in Ellisville. The project, proposed by the Sansone Group, includes a 150-square-foot store on Manchester Road and would cost $49 million to complete. The redevelopment area currently is occupied by Clarkchester Apartments, Westgate Animal Hospital, Valvoline LC Auto Service and the former Moore Kia Mitsubishi dealership. The TIF proposal is part of a $15 million incentive package and said that the developer would finance the improvements by taking 50 percent of new sales tax revenue from the project for up to 23 years. Jim Sansone, a principal with Sansone Group, said, “Without the subsidy, there would be no project.” Residents, opposed and in favor of the project, crowded into the Park Administration Center to voice their opinions. Ellisville resident Elizabeth Schmidt said she is opposed to the TIF. “This is not a case of ‘not in my backyard’; this is a case of in my yard,” Schmidt said. “When I first heard that this might happen, I had to ask myself, ‘why?’ Why would Sansone Group, with annual revenues estimated at $20-50 million, need a TIF from the city of Ellisville? They can’t get financing any other way? … It’s because municipalities like Ellisville are gullible enough to give away free money at taxpayer expense.” However, resident Debbie Groves said she is in favor of the TIF. “Sometimes you have to spend a little money to get more, and I believe that might be the case here,” Groves said. “I moved to Ellisville because I liked it, but I’m frankly

worried about it because it’s so empty. … I’m not a huge Walmart fan. I’m not at all a fan of TIFs, but on the other hand, I think we need to do something in Ellisville to beef up our city.” David Stokes, a policy analyst for the Show-Me Institute, said the TIF process is “a bad joke.” “I urge this TIF commission and the city of Ellisville to be one of the first political voices to recognize that the constant quest for retail tax incentives is actively harming the economic base of our region,” Stokes said. “By passing this TIF, Ellisville might gain in the short term, but it will do so at the expense of the schools, the county and many other taxing districts. More importantly, it will just continue the downward spiral of incentive-based retail developments that shrink our region’s tax base while appearing to benefit the latest player.” But Charles Pavlack, commission chairman and a former Ellisville City Council member who voted in favor of the TIF, said TIFs have been used for other successful retail areas in St. Louis County. “For us to say we’ll take the moral high ground and make a brave stand to turn down TIF when others have used the same methods to take our businesses, doesn’t make sense,” Pavlack said. The commission voted 7 to 4 against recommending the TIF plan. Pavlack said the commission on March 21 plans to bring its recommendation to the council, which will make the final decision. Because the commission voted to oppose the recommendation of a TIF, a super majority, or five out of the six councilmembers, is required by the council to move forward with the plan.

Unoccupied Ballwin home causes perplexing problem By JIM ERICKSON The question about what to do with an unoccupied and deteriorating house in Ballwin continues to perplex city officials and residents near the dwelling. A recent move to demolish the structure on Breezeview Drive as a dangerous building under city ordinances was stymied by the discovery of so much personal property inside the house that pre-demolition tests for asbestos couldn’t be made until the “stuff” was hauled away. Before that

step could be completed, a person claiming to be the trustee of a trust that owned the property responded to the demolition notice. According to City Attorney Robert Jones, the demolition notice was mailed to the person listed on public records as responsible for the property and the city had no knowledge of a new trustee’s legal interest in the house Tom Aiken, Ballwin city planner, said that while the house has been unoccupied

“for at least 20 years,” property taxes have been paid, including liens assessed by the city for grass cutting. Leaving a dwelling unoccupied is not an ordinance violation. However, lack of regular maintenance has caused the property’s appearance to deteriorate. As a result, the situation has become one involving not only the property owner but also neighbors who are unhappy about the problem, and the city whose ability to address the issue is limited by laws protecting private property.

Jones said the city followed all legal requirements before moving to have the house demolished and has done nothing wrong. He noted there was “a veiled threat” that items of value had been removed from the property but that photographs taken by city employees of all the dwelling’s contents before anything was hauled away do not support that claim. Jones said he will talk with the trustee to determine if and how the situation can be resolved.

‘Gospel outreach’ in

Ballwin closes school

By SARAH WILSON A group on March 9 distributing religious materials about Christianity in front of the Islamic Al-Salam Day School in Ballwin prompted the school to close for the day. Pastor Mark Kiser, president of Reclaiming Missouri for Christ, described the group’s activity not as a protest but as a “gospel outreach.” “Notice there are no signs,” said Kiser, of Springfield, Mo. Members of Reclaiming Missouri for Christ had previously notified police of the gathering. The school later sent a letter home to parents informing them of the group’s plans and decided to cancel classes for the day. The group stood outside the school, which is next door to the Islamic Center of Greater St. Louis, or the Daar-ul-Islam mosque, for roughly an hour during a Friday prayer session. Representatives of the mosque said they were not concerned about any problems. Kiser said, “As believers in Jesus Christ, we believe that we are compelled to come and share our faith. “We do not believe that we serve the same God. We definitely don’t serve the same Jesus, so we’re out here simply handing out the gospels of John and DVDs of Muslims who have converted to Christianity.” Kiser said the group does not single out the Muslim faith. “We would do it in the Mormon church. We would do it in the Jehovah’s Witness church. We would do it at a gay pride event,” he said.

Improvements budgeted for two Chesterfield intersections Look What’s

In-Store For you at of Hog Hollow www.arthoghollow.com

14140 Olive Street Road Chesterfield,MO 63017 314-469-6125 M-Sat: 9:30-5:30, W: 9:30-8:30

By CAROL ENRIGHT The Chesterfield City Council at its March 5 meeting unanimously approved to allocate $440,000 toward landscaping two new intersections along Highway 141 at Olive Boulevard and Ladue Road. Previously, the city had considered adding a water fountain at the Olive intersection that would have cost an estimated $600,000 as well as an irrigation system that would have upped the bill by more than $350,000. Councilmembers rejected both features as being too expensive. Mike Geisel, Chesterfield’s director of Planning and Public Works, said the cost to landscape both intersections is “not cheap,” but he called it relatively inexpensive given the acreage involved. Geisel said the intersection at 141 and Olive is comparable to “three football fields.” “We’re not talking about a concentrated landscape area, but a very expansive amount of ground,” he explained. By way of comparison, Geisel said it cost the city between $500,000 and $600,00 to landscape the medians on Chesterfield Parkway West a couple of years ago. The Missouri Department of Transportation is required to provide landscaping at both intersections. However, Geisel said the MoDOT plantings would consist of basic evergreen and deciduous trees, but “no color or no ornamental trees.” “That’s what we’ll be adding,” he said. “We’ve added some color. We’ve added some white buds, some redbuds, some knockout roses – the same sorts of plants

Dogwood is one of the trees that will add color to two new Chesterfield intersections.

that we’ve added in all of our road landscapes. But it’s certainly modest as compared to what someone would do in their yard or if we were doing a park landscaping,” Geisel explained. He said landscaping the intersection at 141 and Ladue to reduce the impact to nearby neighborhoods “was a commitment that the city made in the original design of that interchange.” Geisel said construction and landscaping of both intersections is targeted for completion by the end of this year.

Splash playground to get a facelift

Chesterfield & Manchester are now Massage Envy Spas, offering Healthy Skin facials. See centers for details.

By CAROL ENRIGHT Upgrades are in store for the Chesterfield Family Aquatic Center’s splash playground for the 2012 swim season. The Chesterfield City Council in February unanimously voted to hire Capri Pool to complete the renovation for an amount not to exceed $170,000. A $90,000 grant from the Municipal Park Grant Commission will offset project costs. Chesterfield’s director of Planning and Public Works, Mike Geisel, said the renovation is needed to replace the plumbing under the playground deck due to normal wear and tear caused by the high-pressure plumbing that powers the water features. The playground was added to the original pool about eight years ago. “Every year, another leak pops up somewhere and you have to do a repair. After seven or eight years, it’s just time to completely tear it up, replace it and repurpose

some of that equipment,” said Geisel. Since the renovation requires pulling up the deck, the city will use the opportunity to connect the playground plumbing to the existing filtration system that supports the zero-entry pool. “That will save us some funds, and it will make that operate a lot more efficiently,” Geisel said. The renovated splash playground will retain some of its existing features, including the palm trees, fish, sea turtle and starfish. New amenities will include a clam, a fog jet, a circular fountain, a foam geyser, bubblers, new water sprays, additional benches and a 20-foot shade umbrella. The existing deck surface also will be replaced with a softer, cooler material to improve safety. The renovations to the splash playground are on track to be completed by the scheduled pool opening Memorial Day weekend.

St. Louis Daily Deals’ closure hurts local businesses and customers By KATE UPTERGROVE When St. Louis Daily Deals, an Internetbased business modeled after discount giant Groupon, shut down last month, it left consumers and service providers holding the bag – an empty one. Chuck Healy, CEO of Ballwin-based Handyman Matters-St. Louis was one of the service providers that St. Louis Daily Deals failed to pay. As a result he says he can no longer honor any St. Louis Daily Deals coupons without some additional buy-in by the customer. “The deals we offer are already deeply discounted,” Healy explained. And as a service provider, Healy earns only a portion of the total purchase price – typically 50 or 60 percent. So if a $100 service is offered at 50 percent off, the service provider makes just $30. In the case of a July 2011 deal, Healy made nothing at all. Healy is generous when it comes to forgiving Warson Woods residents Bill and Lorilee Cummings, owners of St. Louis Daily Deals. “They are good people who were running a small business that simply went under,” Healy said. He suggested that “it’s not as easy as it seems.” Likewise, he said people have been very understanding that Handyman Matters cannot provide their services for free. “We want people to love us, use us and call us back,” said Healy. “So we are definitely working with our customers to meet their needs.” He said he believes most companies are willing to work with customers who have

been affected by the collapse of St. Louis Daily Deals, and he offered some advice for customers looking to get a safe deal in the future. “Stick with deal providers that you trust (Healy has had great success with “The Big Deal” offered by Angie’s List), and if you see a deal for a business you frequently use that’s good too. “You know that the dry cleaner you visit weekly and who values you as a customer, for instance, is going to work with you if something unforeseen happens.” That unforeseen event could be as simple as the customer letting the deal expire. “If people call, I’ll work with them,” Healy said. The Better Business Bureau echoes Healy’s consumer advice and offers the following tips to businesses: Ask yourself: Does it make good business sense? Can you still make a profit from the discounted coupons or will any losses be offset by attracting new customers? Make sure you have a written, signed contract agreeing to all terms of the arrangement and make sure you have read it carefully. Know what the payment arrangements are going into the deal. Will you be paid as soon as the marketer is paid, or are you asked to wait for two weeks, 30 days, or longer for your money? Stipulate in the contract the maximum number of coupons you will honor, so that the deals, will not be oversold. Finally, check the company’s BBB Business Review by calling (314) 645-3300 or going to bbb.org.

Wildwood approves demolition on Strecker Forest site City Council gives unanimous approval in closed session By SARAH WILSON In a closed meeting on March 12, the Wildwood City Council unanimously approved a motion to demolish and remove two homes and a garage on the Strecker Forest development site. The motion said there would be limited authority for activity on the site under specific conditions and that it does not otherwise affect the status of the property. Residents have expressed concerns about dioxins and furans inside the structures

that could pose health risks to workers during demolition; however, the EPA had conducted a study and said the demolition of the three structures would not present significant health risks, and therefore, no special precautions or additional protective gear would be required to conduct the demolition. “In no way does this impact any of the other ongoing investigations still going on or the litigation that’s still pending,” Mayor Tim Woerther said. “The City Council sought an early and as-quick-as-possible … understanding of the possible issues with those homes because they’re not only eyesores but have been unattractive nuisances.”

‘As Seen by Teens’ winners More than 100 high school and middle school students in the Rockwood community submitted entries for the inaugural “As Seen by Teens” substance abuse prevention public service announcement and poster contest sponsored by the Rockwood Drug-Free Coalition.

saging, the Rockwood Drug-Free Coalition hopes to increase community awareness of substance abuse.

Jumping rope for the heart Students at Blevins Elementary jumped all over heart disease by participating in the second annual Gus Berry Jump Rope for Heart event, which celebrates the life of Gus Berry, a former Blevins Elementary student who lost his life in 2010 as a result of heart complications. In 2011, students jumped rope and raised $5,626 in Berry’s memory. This year, students set their goal a dollar higher. However, with the support of the school community, Blevins Elementary raised $7,304, surpassing its goal by more than $1,500. Holly Lennartz, physical education teacher, described the event as a huge success. “We’re proud of all our jumpers,” Lennartz said. Donations raised during the Jump Rope for Heart event help fund research to fight heart disease and stroke as well as support the American Heart Association’s public and professional education programs. Cosponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, Jump Rope for Heart is a program that promotes physical fitness and heart health by jumping rope. At Blevins Elementary, it is also a special way to remember a fellow student.

New Advancements in Pain Management That May Work For You Tuesday, May 8, 2012 • 7 – 8:30 p.m. West County Family YMCA Auditorium 16464 Burkhardt Place, Chesterfield, MO 63017

Manish Suthar, MD, Pain Management Specialist at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital Individuals suffering from chronic pain often reach a point where activities and hobbies become limited. Fortunately, there is a solution: Prolotherapy/ PRP treatments. Prolotherapy/PRP is a safe, natural, non-surgical treatment for conditions of varying severity and duration. These treatments are designed to strengthen soft tissue ligaments or tendons around joints, making the joints and treated areas stronger and more stable. They have the potential to help throughout the body for many different problems and in most cases, will work in conjunction with normal exercises and activities of daily living. After the lecture you will have an opportunity to learn from a YMCA health and wellness expert about beneficial exercises than can improve your overall health and well being. The event is free, but registration is required.

system for graduates

By MARCIA GUCKES Starting with the class of 2016, Parkway School District will give honors to hundreds more students than it does now. The Board of Education approved a change from the class ranking system to the Latin honors system at its meeting March 14, opening the door for more students to achieve well-deserved recognition. Currently, only 40 students district wide graduate with high honors and a class ranking of 1 to 10. According to a committee report presented to the board, if the new system were in place this school year, then more than 600 students would graduate with honors. Charlotte Ijei, director of pupil personnel and diversity, told the board that the committee had surveyed colleges from

the University of Missouri to Yale and found out that the change would have no impact on a student’s admission. Most of the colleges said they decide admissions and scholarships based on where a student falls in the class by percentage points rather than rank. Parkway’s newly adopted Latin system will honor students as follows: • Summa Cum Laude: students with grade point average of 4.0, gold honor cord on their graduation cap • Magna Cum Laude: students with grade point average of 3.75-3.99, silver honor cord on their graduation cap • Cum Laude: students with grade point average of 3.5-3.749, orange honor cord on their graduation cap

Panelists listen while debaters representing the republican presidential candidates participate in a mock debate. Panelists (left to right): Rep. Kurt Bahr of St. Charles County, Elise Kostial of Concerned Young Women for America, and Sarah Greek of Bott Radio Network. Debaters (left to right): Speaker-elect Tim Jones, Rep. Paul Curtman, Committeeman Chris Howard, and. former representative candidate Dan O’Sullivan.

Mock debate teaches politics Several conservative groups sponsored a mock debate at Westminster Christian Academy in Town & Country on March 3. The debaters were current and former state elected officials who tried to answer the questions as if they were one of the real presidential candidates. Former state representative candidate Dan O’Sullivan debated as Newt Gingrich. Missouri Speaker-elect Tim Jones portrayed Mitt Romney. State Committeeman Chris Howard played the role of

Rick Santorum. Rep. Paul Curtman acted as Ron Paul. A spokesperson for one of the sponsors, Annette Read, of I Heard the People Say, said the mock debate, which was attended by about 100 people, was an effort to get young people involved in the political process. Students from the University of Missouri–St. Louis, University of Missouri, Marquette High School, and Westminster Christian Academy served as ushers and helped design the questions.

Parkway Swim Club

“In my 17 years of coaching, I have never witnessed a better team experience at a Senior Sectional Meet,” Madden said. “We have a very special group of young people here at Parkway Swim Cub, and they bleed that red, white and blue with great pride. “In the last year, Parkway has come a long way, and this meet was indicative of that progress. “At the 2011 meet, the Parkway Swim Club finished ninth in the overall team competition. As a group, we set goals knowing that we would not be biggest club at the meet, but could we be the best team?” The Kansas City Blazers walked away with the team title pretty easily. However, the battle for second place was up for grabs. Despite having 15 less swimmers than Rockwood, Parkway and Rockwood went back and forth the whole weekend, Madden said. “Once again, as it always does, it came down to the relays. Rockwood was able to score all four relays and we were only able to score three of ours, which was the difference,” Madden said. In the team scoring, the Parkway Swim Club boys finished third and the girls were fifth. “It was the first time in team history, that Parkway Swim Club had both individual high point winners,” Madden said. “Heather Lundstrom won the girls high point and Nick Orf won the boys.” Orf set a new Ozark record for 15-16 age boys in the 100 fly with a time of 55.85 seconds. For a complete list of finishers, please see this story online at newsmagazinenetwork.com

The Parkway Swim Club took 28 athletes to the sectional meet. Coach Jack Madden was impressed by his squad.

Rockwood swin club Local swimmers did well recently at the Region 8 Senior Sectional meet held at new Jenks Aquatic Center in Jenks, Okla., a suburb of Tulsa. More than 40 teams from Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Southern Illinois and Iowa took part in the meet. The Rockwood Swim Club finished second while the Parkway Swim Club came in third and the Clayton Shaw Park team wound up fifth. Four swimmers came home with firstplace finishes. Rockwood’s Nick Davis finished first in the 800 free and Lauren Votava won the 100 free. The Parkway Swim Club’s Nick Orf finished first in the 200 butterfly and 400 IM. He set a record in the 100 fly event for boys in the 15-16 age category and finished second in the race. Heather Lundstrom won first in the 100 and 200 butterfly. In addition, the Rockwood women’s 400 free relay team won first place. For a complete list of finishers, please see this story online at newsmagazinenetwork.com

Principia’s Kara Johnson

Hitting the 1,000-point mark By WARREN MAYES Principia senior Kara Johnson and Parkway North’s Amber Anderson each topped the 1,000-point mark in recent weeks. Johnson’s big basket came in the recent district title game against Whitfield for the Panthers. “Her basket came early in the first quarter and helped give us a huge boost during our big first quarter against Whitfield,” Principia coach Shad Nichols said. “The crowd blew up and Whitfield had already taken two timeouts. It really was a momentum builder for us.” Nichols pointed out what a big accomplishment this was for her and the Principia program. “It’s a great accomplishment for her especially since she’s only a three-year varsity player,” Nichols said. “I don’t think that happens very often. It’s also big for this program to have two of three 1,000-point scorers in school history playing together on one team. That obviously makes us a lot better.” Earlier this year, Principia senior Liz Gilman topped the 1,000-point mark. Johnson finished her senior season averaging 15.1 points a game. She has been a two-year team captain and a great leader on and off the court, Nichols said. Parkway North’s Anderson also broke the 1,000-point barrier, but as a junior. The 5-foot-10 Anderson finished the season averaging 15.3 points a game. She is the Vikings’ point guard and also plays on the wing. “It’s a big accomplishment, but I think Amber doesn’t emphasize scoring or points per game, so she tends to play it down,” Vikings coach Will Young said. “It does,

however, represent many years of practice and working at the game.” Young marveled at how quickly Anderson reached the magic mark for high school athletes. “It’s very tough to get to 1,000 points midway through your junior year,” Young said. “She was the ninth player in school history to pass 1,000 points.” By the time the season ended for the Vikings, Anderson passed a few more former players and sat at fourth on Parkway North’s all-time scoring list. Parkway North’s all-time leading scorer is Julie Meier, who graduated in 1991 after scoring 1,883 points. Young pointed out it might be tough to overcome that figure in her senior season. “It probably isn’t realistic for her to top that number, but she could easily end up second on the list, which is impressive for playing in a program with such a strong history,” Young said. Anderson is a good overall athlete who knows the game, Young said. “She’s definitely a natural basketball player and a great athlete,” he added. “She’s played a lot of basketball through the years, and you can tell she has good instincts as a result of that. She’s an excellent passer with great court vision. “She’s coachable. Amber listens and always does her best to do what we ask.” Young knew when he first saw Anderson he was going to have a good player for his program. “She’s a good ambassador for Parkway North,” Young said. “She takes the attention she gets in stride. She’s a very normal kid who has a great sense of humor.”

CARDINALS SALUTE 2012

2 0 1 2 S t . L o u i s C a r d i n a ls

Season preview STARTING PITCHERS The biggest question mark for the 2012 Cardinals’ starting rotation will come from a former first-round pick who compiled just 25 wins against 34 losses spanning seven seasons, with the last season being 1996. No, the ‘Birds have not added Donovan Osborne back into the starting five. The biggest question for the rotation lies with the man who will be coaching it this year. For the first time since 1995, when Cardinals starters will not have the benefit of the impeccable strategies offered up by former pitching coach, Dave Duncan. Lilliquist, most famous for a bullpen snafu in the World Series where he apparently heard the name “Rzepczynski” instead of the name “Motte,” assumes the reigns for managing the pitching staff this season. He has been long-favored by the Cardinals’ front office, paving the way for a quick ascension from minor league coach to bullpen coach to pitching coach. As for the rotation itself, there are not many surprises going into the season. The biggest story line is certainly the return of Adam Wainwright. Besides being the most physically gifted pitcher among the top five, Waino is also the only member of the staff who can match the competitive edge and “ace” mentality of Chris Carpenter. Carp, who will carry the title of ace until he retires, is coming off a career high innings load. It would be foolish to think that won’t affect the veteran this year at some level, even if it only means that Lilliquist needs to consider having Carpenter skip a start or three early in the season.

Jaime Garcia, the little lefty that could, is a solid number three starter as long as his changeup continues to baffle hitters. The intrigue in this rotation, and where Lilliquist will either sink or swim in his first year, comes with Kyle Lohse and Jake Westbrook at the bottom of the rotation. The two righties are smart, serviceable veterans, but they leaned heavily on Duncan’s strategies due to both lacking a dominant pitch. That said, an improved Cardinals’ defense should prove beneficial here. Of these five, we are predicting that Westbrook has the most surprisingly good 2012 season. Predictions Chris Carpenter: 15 wins, 3.30 ERA Adam Wainwright: 15 wins, 3.00 ERA Jaime Garcia: 13 wins, 3.50 ERA Kyle Lohse: 12 wins, 4.10 ERA Jake Westbrook: 14 wins, 3.80 ERA BULLPEN First thing that needs to be mentioned here: Jason Motte is the closer for the 2012 Cardinals. Oh what a relief to be able to say those words. After all of Tony La Russa’s posturing last year that Motte was “just a reliever,” it is great to be able to stop playing head games and call it like it is. Beyond just being named the closer, Motte should blossom into a very effective closer in his first full year on the job. His slightly goofy personality is perfect for a role where a short memory is critical to enduring success. That trait plus a new slider he has spent the offseason improving should make Motte a very tough beat, whenever he pitches.

The rest of the Cardinals’ bullpen is loaded with talent, but individual roles seem a bit less defined. This may very well be the way new manager Mike Matheny wants it. Lance Lynn or Fernando Salas are most likely to work the eighth inning. Lynn has a huge arm and seemed to find command late in the year. Salas is an interesting pitcher and a lot of fun to watch. It is a small leap to see him become a really slippery pitcher, throwing about 18 different pitches to become really effective, offsetting the fact that he doesn’t have one truly dominant pitch the way that Motte and Lynn do. From the left side, Marc Rzecpzynski and J.C. Romero should be a serviceable duo. Rzecpzynski has a lot of ability and showed what he could achieve when he put it all together late in the season. Welltravelled veteran J.C. Romero should play the role of lefty specialist and should find success in that role. Mitchell Boggs, Kyle McClellan and Eduardo Sanchez are likely vying for the two remaining spots in the bullpen. Matheny has claimed he will carry only 12 pitchers, but that could change given recent injury issues in the Cardinals’ rotation. Predictions Jason Motte: 30 saves, 3.00 ERA Lance Lynn: 3.00 ERA Mitchell Boggs: 3.50 ERA Marc Rzepczynski: 2.50 ERA J.C. Romero: 3.50 ERA Kyle McClellan: 3.50 ERA Fernando Salas: 4.00 ERA Eduardo Sanchez: 4.50 ERA

STARTING INFIELD The only thing hometown hero David Freese needs to do now is start backflipping onto the field on opening day. Well, that and stay healthy. Freese is a good talent who had an amazing post-season, and expectations will be ridiculously high for the Redbird third basemen. It would be an awful lot of fun to see just how good the Lafayette grad could be if he played in 140 games this year. Rafael Furcal at shortstop is a significant defensive upgrade from 2011 starter Ryan Theriot. But, just like with Freese, one must be concerned with Furcal’s durability. Furcal is a streaky hitter but a consistent catalyst, one who gets on base and is still enough of a threat to steal to keep opposing defenses on their toes. Lance Berkman should welcome the move from right field to first base. Berkman showed greatly increased athleticism last year after he shed some weight in the offseason and should be an above average defensive first baseman. It certainly does not seem realistic to believe that Berkman could relive his outstanding 2011 season, but that is what was said last year as well. As is standard for the St. Louis Cardinals, second base is the biggest question mark entering the season. It seems that transplanted outfielder Skip Schumaker has been relegated to a utility role, and that this position comes down to a battle between Daniel Descalso and Tyler Greene. Greene has been a frustrating player for the Cardinals and fans, but this may be a breakout season for the not-so-young prospect. Greene is the most athletic player anywhere

in the Cardinals’ system, and the quiet confidence of Mike Matheny may finally let Greene get the most of that ability. La Russa was an amazing manager, but by all accounts he was brutal on young players, and clearly that got into Greene’s head. The Cardinals will be a much better team if Greene can solidify this position and play up to his potential. As for Yadier Molina – he of the new $75 million contract extension – what can we really say? Molina may be the best defensive player of his generation, period. It is impossible to adequately describe the value that a catcher of Molina’s ability has on a pitching staff, coaching staff and an opposition’s game plan. Offensively, Molina had a breakout season last year, but one that will be difficult to duplicate. His presence on defense is so profound that he plays about 20 games per year more than he probably should, and that makes it very difficult to be a consistent offensive player. Predictions Lance Berkman (1B): .280; 25 HRs; 90 RBIs Tyler Greene (2B): .270; 10 HRs; 50 RBIs David Freese (3B): .280; 20 HRs; 70 RBIs Rafael Furcal (SS):

CARDINALS SALUTE 2012 .250; 5 HRs; 40 RBIs Yadier Molina (C): .275; 10 HRs; 65 RBIs STARTING OUTFIELD The buzz for this group centers on new acquisition Carlos Beltran and fan favorite Allen Craig, but the success or failure of the 2012 Cardinals’ outfield will be determined by the performance of Matt Holliday. Holliday had a solid season in 2011, marred by some freak injuries, but needs to have an exceptional 2012 season to fulfill his promise and his contract. Holliday’s history with the Cardinals has been as an effective protector for the number one hitter, but now Holliday must become the go-to-guy in this lineup, the one who can single-handedly carry the offense when needed. Beltran is an amazing professional hitter, but is prone to going on prolonged streaks, for better or worse. He has a fairly long swing, especially from the left side of the plate, and that type of swing dictates that a player’s timing has to be on point to be effective. It is easy to see Beltran having a big season this year in the cumulative, but it will be up to others to carry the team for the weeks where Beltran’s bat just won’t align with the ball. Jon Jay had a very respectable year fol-

lowing the trade of Colby Rasmus. That said, Jay is likely to end up in a bit of a platoon once Allen Craig returns from injury. Craig has shown the ability to be a professional hitter and a serviceable defender, and it should be a monster year for Craig once he gets healthy. Jay will be the opening day starter, but Craig will hit his into this lineup every day and force the Cardinals to move Beltran to center field. Predictions Matt Holliday (LF): .310; 25 HRs; 100 RBIs Jon Jay (CF): .280; 5 HRs; 40 RBIs Carlos Beltran (RF): .280; 25 HRs; 80 RBIs THE BENCH Undoubtedly, the Cardinals enter 2012 with a much younger bench than they have had in recent memory. They will rely on significant contributions from Descalso, Tony Cruz and Matt Carpenter. Schumaker will serve as the veteran leader challenged with teaching these younger players how to be prepared to play every day, even though they only get called on every four days. The Cardinals are a strong club in 2012, but as we saw last year the strength of bench players is critical to teams over a 162-game schedule. Schumaker should be

NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM his normal singles-hitting machine. Descalso showed a surprisingly slick glove and will see plenty of action in the middle infield. Carpenter is necessary as a backup at the corner infield spots. Cruz is a versatile backup catcher with a decent glove and bat. Don’t be surprised to see Adron Chambers get called up as we predict that Matheny will place a greater premium on speed than La Russa did. Predictions Allen Craig (OF): .270; 15 HRs; 60 RBIs Skip Schumaker (OF): .300; 2 HRs; 35 RBIs Matt Carpenter: .250; 5 HRs; 25 RBIs Daniel Descalso: .280; 5 HRs; 35 RBIs Tony Cruz: .250; 5 HRs; 25 RBIs OVERALL PREDICTION This Cardinals team should be nearly as potent at the plate as the 2011 team was and feature better pitching. They are not going to run away with the division, but they are good enough to win 88 games, which should win them the National League Central. And come on, who knows what can happen in October?

Matheny inherits a World Series championship team By WARREN MAYES It’s still new for him. “It’s strange, no gear – I need a bat or something,” quipped Mike Matheny, the new Cardinals’ skipper, who has a twoyear contract with a club option for a third season. Not really. Matheny fields his new job with the adroitness he did in his old one. The 41-year-old Matheny may be a rookie skipper but he knows the drill. He’ll work and work to maintain the St. Louis Cardinals’ status as one of baseball’s elite teams. General manager John Mozeliak said he envisioned Matheny as managerial material when he rejoined the organization two years ago. Matheny was a special assistant in player development last year and previously had been a minor league instructor. He won’t be “La Russa lite” or even “La Russa II.” “I’m going to be consistent. I’ve got a job to do and for me to get focused on trying to be somebody else, it’s a waste of all our time,” Matheny said. “I know what I need to do and my job. What I need to do is help these guys get better every day. “You can talk about pressure, you can talk about whatever you want and it can become a distraction to these guys if it’s continually jammed down their throat. Stick to philosophy, come here ready to compete, that stuff takes care of itself. If you want to sit and dwell on all these other issues, all these different ideals that you can conjure up, you’re going to be worthless. So, I’m not going that way.” However, it’s not like he’s going to reinvent the game either. Matheny realizes he is inheriting a championship team. He’s got plenty of pieces to work with. “It’s all about working hard,” Matheny said. “There’s not some new philosophy as far as that goes. We’re sticking to the mission and the vision of this organization. “We’re going to be efficient. It’s about the work ethic and the efficiency. I’m beating up a couple terms, ‘excellence’ and ‘respect.’ We go about our business that way, there’s going to be good things at the end.” Matheny also has told players that Pujols’ departure in no way lessens expectations and it was OK to have a “chip on the shoulder” about it. “There (are) a lot of guys here with things to prove,” he said, “and jobs to earn.” Outfielder Lance Berkman said he

thought the new regimen had the same feel as last year under La Russa. That goes for the new leader’s unquestioned authority. “Mike is great; he’s got a great presence,” Berkman said. “He’s well-qualified to be a big league manager, there’s no doubt about it, and I think he’s going to do a great job. He already has the respect of every guy in here.” Matheny plans to lead by example. He plans on being heavily involved with every aspect of the game. Matheny describes his style as a mix of CEO and micro-manager. “I want to have my eyes on everything,” Matheny said. “I love to watch it all. It’s not like I’m going to turn over the positioning of the infield and say ‘you’ve got it’ and it’s done. And I’ll know how we’re going to be pitching because I’m going to be involved in the game plan, running game, outfield positioning, bunt defenses.” Matheny has kept in contract with La Russa and reached out to him during spring traing. “I texted him and just told him I was thinking about him,” Matheny said. “You look at the man whose life has been so full of this game. The game’s been so good to him and vice versa. It’s got to be a strange place in life for him. “I also thanked him for everything that he had done personally for me in the past and for this organization. He responded, short and sweet. He certainly was on the minds of some of us, those of us around here who have learned so much from him.”

Lilliquist toes the rubber with a solid staff By WARREN MAYES With Chris Carpenter and Adam Wainwright heading a pitching staff that also has talented Jaime Garcia and Kyle Lohse, naturally, Lilliquist knows what’s he got to work with. “You’ve got to be excited about it,” Lilliquist said. “You don’t win the Kentucky Derby with ponies.” “The recipe for his chocolate cake is pretty good,” Lilliquist said. “Maybe there’s some sprinkles here and there. We’re just going to get after it.” Regarded as a one of the game’s best pitching coaches, Duncan stepped away from the Cardinals to go on an indefinite leave of absence to help his wife, Jeanine, recover from cancer. “It’s almost bittersweet, in terms of what’s transpired,” Lilliquist said. “In the same sense, it’s exciting that all our guys are intact and ready to go. Dave has been a tremendous mentor for me. “In big league camps what he’s done has been proven, tested for all the years he’s done it. It’s going to be business as usual for the Cardinals.” General manager John Mozeliak and new manager Mike Matheny decided to promote Lilliquist from his role as bullpen coach to pitching coach. A good chemistry is developing between Matheny and Lilliquist. “Yeah, I think that’s going to develop through the spring,” Matheny said. “I think it’s more just learning the philosophy. “We’ve spent a lot of time talking this winter and preparing and getting schedules ready and just talking about each guy individually.” Lilliquist has been in touch with Duncan this spring, too. “Yeah, we talk here and there,” Lilliquist said. “Dunc’s always welcome here, we know that. Through his trying moments moving forward and all the stuff he has, it’s tough.” In his bullpen coaching job last year, Lilliquist saw first-hand what Duncan did and how he did it. He absorbed it like a sponge does water. “Anytime you get to have the experience, it’s preparation,” Lilliquist said. “Being around Dave was helpful. It’s exciting. I do feel prepared to move forward from just being around him and knowing how it works.” Lilliquist is in his 11th year with the Cardinals’ organization. He has specialized in

perfecting hurlers’ mechanics and rehabbing pitchers coming back from injuries. Last year, he was in his first season as the bullpen coach. Before that, Lilliquist served as the Jupiter (Fla.) Complex pitching coordinator for the three seasons working with rehabilitating pitchers. From 2004-07 he served as the pitching coach for Palm Beach (A). Palm Beach made the playoffs twice in that span and won the 2005 Florida State League Championship as the pitching staff registered the second best ERA (3.94) in the FSL. Lilliquist initiated his career with the Cardinals at rookie level Johnson City in 2002, then moved on to Peoria in 2003. Before joining the Cardinals, Lilliquist was a high school baseball coach at Vero Beach (Fla.) High School from 1998 to 2001. The former left handed starter-turnedreliever spent five-plus years in the Major Leagues, recording 25 victories against 34 losses. In 1992, while with Cleveland, Lilliquist made 71 appearances, going 5-3 with a 1.75 ERA. The next season with Cleveland, he earned 10 saves while recording a 2.25 ERA. He was drafted in 1987 by the Atlanta Braves in the first round (sixth pick overall) of the June free agent draft and spent time in the Major Leagues with Atlanta, San Diego, Cleveland, Boston and Cincinnati, ending his professional career in 1997. Lilliquist, 46, graduated from Sarasota (Fla.) High School and had an outstanding collegiate career at the University of Georgia where he compiled a 31-12 record with a 3.30 ERA in three years. In 1987 he led Georgia to the SEC title and a first-ever trip to the NCAA College World Series after being named College Pitcher of the Year by Baseball America.

By WARREN MAYES Former NL Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter was just 11-9 last year, but won 10 of his last 12 decisions after struggling with command the first two months or so. Then he was 4-0 in the postseason and beat the Rangers on short rest in Game 7 of the World Series. “The guy’s an animal,” Matheny said. “That’s the guy we want people following.” New pitching coach Derek Lilliquist will not overwork Carpenter this spring. He wants to have him ready for the long grind of the regular season. Carpenter, who turns 37 in April, will probably be eased into things coming off a heavy workload last season. During the offseason, the serious Carpenter proved he knows how to relax. He joined friends, including Philadelphia ace Roy Halladay, on a fishing trip in the Amazon. While there, they rescued a fisherman who had been bitten by an anaconda. The World Series Game 7 winner also got a chance to lace up his skates with the St. Louis Blues during the offseason. Carpenter impressed Blues players with his skills. Defenseman Alex Pietrangelo joked that the Blues could use Carpenter on the power play, and Carpenter told them after

he retires from baseball he might play in men’s leagues. Several Blues players took batting practice earlier this year at Busch Stadium and said they thought Carpenter looked better on skates than they did in the cage. Carpenter said his offseason went by quickly. So fast in fact, the Cardinals’ ace acknowledged he still hasn’t seen any tape from the World Series victory over Texas. Not even his big win in Game 7. “I haven’t watched a single thing,” Carpenter said. “I wish I could. I just haven’t had the time.” That’s how Carpenter rolls. He’s looking forward. After all, there’s a championship to defend. “Obviously (there’s) a lot of excitement around this ballclub after everything that went on there at the end of the season,” Carpenter said. The Cardinals will be dramatically reshaped team in 2012. Slugger Albert Pujols left for the Angels, manager Tony La Russa retired and Matheny has taken over in the dugout. “There’s a little bit of sadness there with Tony and then obviously with Albert leaving,” Carpenter said. “That brought some questions, but I’m excited about this team. “I’m excited about the opportunity that we’re going to have. We have a bunch of good players. Losing Albert is a big thing, but that is the game. It is what is. The things he brought to this team and the


community were enormous. He should not be beat up for it.” Pitching coach Dave Duncan also took an extended leave of absence to deal with his wife’s illness, and Derek Lilliquist, the former bullpen coach, moved up to take his place. To replace Pujols’ bat in the lineup, St. Louis acquired Carlos Beltran in free agency. “Guys are excited about this team and the changes,” Carpenter said. “We’re excited about Mike and Beltran. Lilly (Lilliquist) knows what’s going on. He’s been around Duncan for forever. He knows how to be successful. “Obviously, getting Waino back is huge,” he added. Star pitcher Adam Wainwright strained his elbow in 2010 and missed his final start. He had Tommy John surgery on his right arm last March. Carpenter, who signed a two-year, $21 million contract extension on Sept. 11, began throwing two weeks ago. He led the NL in innings last year with a career-high 273 1/3. “Everything feels good,” Carpenter said, who began throwing in early January to get ready for 2012. “I’ve always said, you can’t control what happens.” Carpenter has five quality pitches. He throws two- and four-seam fastballs in the 92-96 mph range consistently. He is known to have one of the better curveballs in baseball and has excellent command over his cutter and changeup. “Carpenter’s command allows him to throw any of his pitches at any time. He used them all in 2011’s final game. Working on three days’ rest, he went sixplus innings and earned a 6-2 win over the Rangers in Game 7 that gave St. Louis its second championship in six seasons. Though just an 11-game winner last year,

No Minimum Order the 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner was 10-2 in the second half. Carpenter stayed on a roll in the postseason, going 4-0 with wins in Games 1 and 7 against Texas. Carpenter remains one of the club’s leaders and he embraces that position. “My role never changes. We all work together and try to control things we can control,” Carpenter said. “We’ve got so many quality guys in that clubhouse that it doesn’t matter. You’ve got myself. You’ve got Waino stepping up. I think Yadier (Molina) will have a huge presence in that clubhouse this year. You’ve got Matt (Holliday), Lance (Berkman) and Beltran. We’ve got all kinds of guys.”

First class at first base By WARREN MAYES No longer is Albert Pujols patrolling first base. Instead, Lance Berkman has taken over that area of the field. It’s a position he has played before when he was with the Houston Astros – and he does not lack for confidence – not in manning the position or when he comes up to hit. First baseman are hitters and run producers. Berkman is comfortable assuming that role. He believes the Cardinals will be just as dangerous this season without Pujols in the lineup as they were with him batting third. “If I play up to my ability they’re not going to notice much of a drop-off,” Berkman said. “It’s just a matter of playing up to my ability.” In fact, Berkman joked that his initial reaction when he learned Pujols had signed with the Los Angeles Angels was unrelated to the loss of a three-time NL MVP from St. Louis. It was that he would be playing first base. After all, Berkman was the NL comeback player of the year as the right fielder in 2011 – his first regular outfield duty in several seasons. The 36-year-old Berkman was eager to make that move, believing that more straight-line running and fewer stops and starts would be easier on his legs, but he has no problem switching back. This year right field belongs to free agent acquisition Carlos Beltran. Berkman’s time with the Cardinals has been productive and lucrative as well. He had a revival last season while helping St. Louis win the

World Series title. He hit .301 with 31 home runs, 94 RBIs and a .412 on-base percentage – his best season since 2008. He was seventh in the MVP voting, two spots behind Pujols. Berkman played 145 games after hobbling through 122 games in 2010 following left knee surgery during spring training. “You don’t realize what it’s like to try to get through a season and compete at this level when you’re not right,” said manager Mike Matheny. “You’re fighting an uphill battle the whole time.” Berkman was supposedly on the decline, his best years behind him, his big chance to win a championship with the New York Yankees spoiled and spent. The Cardinals disagreed. Signed to an $8 million, one-year deal in the offseason, Berkman repaid the Cardinals for their faith during a scintillating postseason run that was capped by beating Texas 6-2 in Game 7 for St. Louis’ 11th World Series championship. “It’s hard to put it into words,” Berkman said. “It’s exhilarating. The fans make it more exciting. This is the greatest team I’ve ever played on.” Berkman batted .423 with a homer and five RBIs during the World Series, including a tying single in the 10th inning of Game 6 that kept St. Louis alive. David Freese ended up winning it with his

homer leading off the 11th, sending the wild, back-and-forth Series to one more game. In his typical, affable nature, Berkman brushed off the critical hit. “If you don’t come through right there, it’s only one at-bat and it’s over with. They might talk about it for a couple of days,” he reasoned. “If you come through, it’s the greatest.” “Plus, you’ve built an account of coming through,” Berkman added. “So, if I don’t come through in Game 7, I can be like, ‘Well, I came through in Game 6!’” The entire Cardinals’ came through in Game 7 and the result was a championship, but a big part of the championship run was Berkman. Beltran, who played with Berkman in 2004 in Houston, was not surprised to see Berkman regain his old form. “Here’s a guy who’s had years like that in his past,” Beltran said. “But when you’re not healthy there’s a lot of things you’re not going to be able to accomplish out there. “Last year he showed he was healthy and he’s the same player he was when he was in Houston.” The biggest issue this spring is not his health but Berkman’s increased role in the

MARCH 21, 2012 WEST NEWSMAGAZINE

CARDINALS SALUTE 2012 absence of Pujols. Not only is he returning to first base, he is a candidate to replace Pujols in the No. 3 spot in the order. Berkman, Beltran and Matt Holliday are Matheny’s options. Yet, Berkman is not worried about replacing a man who has averaged more than 40 home runs and 120 RBIs in his career. “I don’t know that our lineup will be quite as explosive as it was last year because it’s hard to replace 40 home runs,” Berkman said. “But we’re still going to score runs, I think we still have a very strong lineup up and down, and our pitching staff is going to be better. “I look for us to be extremely competitive. I don’t see any reason why we can’t compete for the title.” Berkman was so comfortable in St. Louis after spending his entire career in Houston — with the exception of two months with the Yankees — that he re-signed with the Cardinals last September, in the middle of their remarkable run to the title. After making $8 million in 2010, he received $12 million for this season. The importance of Berkman returning was magnified when Pujols left. “There are some smart people in our front office,” Matheny said.

“That just wasn’t a chance thing. That was very calculated. You just never know how things are going to go in the offseason. It was a great move.” Berkman had thought Pujols would play his entire career with the Cardinals. He pointed out that before 2010 he envisioned

himself being a career Astro. “I would have said ‘Hey, there’s absolutely no way he’s going to go anywhere.’ I thought I was always going to be in Houston and here I am a happy member of the St. Louis Cardinals,” Berkman said. “You can’t ever tell in this day and age.”

Eco-Art overall winners with STLCC-Wildwood staff (from left) Pam McIntyr, Tim Glanvill, Jenny Chan (Lafayette High School), Abbie Huskey and Mark Weber.

Eco-Art reflects the environmental consciousness of local students By BETSY ZATKULAK St. Louis Community College at Wildwood recently hosted the 2012 Fourth Annual Eco-Art Festival and reception, featuring two- and three-dimensional works of art created by local high school students. The focus of the invitational, juried art exhibition was to express an environmental awareness in either the material the students used in their creation or the theme of the artwork. Participating schools included Eureka High School, Lafayette High School, Marquette High School, Pacific High School and Barat Academy. Robin Hirsch, associate director and gallery director of Art St. Louis and who has worked on many community art events, including Chesterfield Arts and the Missouri Arts Council, served as juror for this year’s exhibition. First, second and third places were awarded to students from each high school. Overall first; second- and third-place winners were also selected. In addition to submitting a work of art that speaks to environmental consciousness, the students were also required to submit an artist’s statement, conveying how the artwork connected to the environmental theme of the exhibition. STLCC-Wildwood’s Visual and Performing Arts department chair, Mark Weber, was on hand to speak at the reception and hand out awards, alongside Campus President Pam McIntyre. Weber said he was inspired and proud of this year’s artists for their thoughtfulness, craftsmanship and creativity – especially in the artist’s statements. “It not only shows that they are thoughtful in the work they are making, but they’re

also thoughtful in that whole process of taking after our world and caring for our world; and sustainability and all of those wonderful things,” he said. Of the craftsmanship and creativity that went into each work, Weber said he was moved by the fact that each piece was very individual. “…You can have a great piece of music, but if you don’t know how to play the piano, it’s difficult, isn’t it?” Weber said. “So the craftsmanship of the work is excellent as well.” Abbie Huskey, a senior at Eureka High School, was awarded first place in the overall winners category for her work titled, “What’s Deer to Me.” Asked what the inspiration behind her piece was, Huskey said: “To reduce, reuse and recycle – to use things that are being left behind to decay and (be) forgotten about; and try to repurpose them into something unexpected.” Huskey, who never really considered what she did as art until she won, said winning the overall competition was “totally unexpected.” “I was going around looking at all the other great pieces of art and was just amazed by all the other talent … so it’s very flattering,” she said. Tim Glanvill, a junior at Lafayette High School, took third place in the overall category for his work titled, “Mother Nature.” “It’s supposed to be about Mother Nature and deforestation,” said Glanvill. “It’s about how people are cutting her down and taking her body away; her natural beauty.” Of his first exhibition and win, Glanvill said, “It’s pretty exciting – it feels really good.” To view pictures of winning entries visit newsmagazinenetwork.com.

A new study published in Pediatrics shows a strong correlation between snoring in childhood and behavioral problems later in life.

Poison Prevention Week The third full week of March is National Poison Prevention Week – a good time to poison-proof the home, talk to children about the dangers of poisons and remind family members what to do in the event of a poisoning emergency. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services offers these tips for responding to a possible poisoning: • If you or someone you know may have been poisoned, call the toll-free Poison Help Line immediately at (800) 222-1222, which connects you to the local poison control center. The Missouri Poison Center, a program of SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center, is professionally staffed 24/7 by nurses, pharmacists and physicians who are prepared to assist with poison exposures for all age groups. • If a person has inhaled poison, get him/ her to fresh air right away. • If someone has poison on the skin, remove any clothing the poison has touched, and rinse skin with running water for 15-20 minutes. • If someone has poison in the eyes, rinse eyes with running water for 15-20 minutes.

Snoring and behavioral problems Children who snore or have other sleeprelated breathing problems are more likely to have behavioral problems years later, according to a large study published in the April 2012 issue of Pediatrics. For the study, “Sleep-Disordered Breathing in a Population-Based Cohort: Behavioral Outcomes at 4 and 7 Years,” researchers asked parents in England about their children’s snoring, mouth breathing, observed apnea and behavior, starting at age 6 months and periodically until the children reached age 7. By the age of 4, kids with sleep-disordered breathing were 20-60 percent more likely to have behavioral difficulties; by age 7, they were 40-100 percent more likely to have behavioral problems. The worst symptoms were associated with the worst behavioral outcomes. The authors of the study concluded that sleep-disordered breathing early in life has strong effects later, perhaps because of increased vulnerability during a critical period of brain development when there is the greatest need for sleep. Findings of the study suggest that sleep-related breathing problems may warrant attention as early as the first year of life. Teen tobacco challenge In conjunction with the March 8 release of the 2012 Surgeon General’s Report, “Preventing Tobacco Use Among Youth and Young Adults,” the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is inviting youth youth and youth adults, to develop original videos that feature one or more of the following findings: • Cigarette smoking by youth and young adults immediately begins a sequence of health consequences, including addiction, reduced lung function, asthma and heart disease.

LIKE

US ON

• Advertising and promotional activities by tobacco companies have been shown to cause the onset and continuation of smoking among adolescents and young adults. • Use of tobacco products by youth and young adults shows signs of increasing after years of steady decline. After a panel of CDC staff screens the videos, the general public will vote for their favorites. Next, a panel of federal and national tobacco prevention and control partners will judge the top 10 submissions. There will be a $1,000 grand prize and three $500 runner-up prizes, for a total of $10,000 to be divided evenly between the middle/high school contest (English and Spanish categories) and the young adult/ college contest (English and Spanish categories). Contestants have until April 20 to submit their videos, and may enter as individuals or groups. For complete contest rules, visit challenge.gov.

Findings cited in the report include the following: • Caring for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias will cost the U.S. an estimated $200 billion in 2012, including $140 billion in costs to Medicare and Medicaid. • Medicare payments for an older person with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias are nearly three times higher, and Medicaid payments are 19 times higher, than for seniors without the conditions. • Unless something is done, the care costs of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias will soar from $200 billion this year to a projected $1.1 trillion in today’s dollars by 2050. That dramatic rise includes a 500 percent increase in combined Medicare and Medicaid spending. For a complete copy of the report, which includes data broken down by state, visit alz.org.

Vitamin D and stroke Results of a study presented at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference indicate that vitamin D helps prevent stroke. Looking at food questionnaire data gathered from 21,000 people ages 45 and older, researchers examined vitamin D and stroke risk. “We found an 11 percent reduction in stroke in those people who had the highest intake of vitamin D,” said Suzanne Judd, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The majority of people get some of their vitamin D from the sun, and according to Judd, exposing arms and legs to the sun 10 minutes a day in spring, fall and summer months should help. Fatty fish, such as salmon and tuna, also are a good source of vitamin D.

A taste for salt A new study indicates that a person’s preference for salty foods may stem from diet during babyhood. Leslie Stein, a researcher at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, examined taste preferences of babies introduced to starchy table foods, which often contain added salt. Stein said infants who were fed starchy foods tended to like saltier water, and their preference for salt lingered as they grew older. “Kids who had been introduced to starchy table foods by 6 months of age had a greater liking for the taste of salt when they were in preschool,” she said. Eating patterns that include consuming a lot of salt are associated with high blood pressure and heart disease in adults. The National Institutes of Health supported Stein’s study.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people who sleep less that seven hours on average during a 24-hour period are more likely to report unintentionally falling asleep during the day at least one day out of the preceding 30 days (46.2 percent compared with 33.2 percent) and nodding off or falling asleep at the wheel during the previous 30 days (7.3 percent compared with 3 percent). Frequent insufficient sleep also has been associated with self-reported anxiety, depressive symptoms, and frequent mental and physical distress. Aside from often feeling tired, how do you know if you are getting sufficient sleep? To test sleepiness levels in patients, doctors routinely use the Epworth Sleepiness Scale, which consists of a series of questions regarding the likelihood of someone falling asleep in various situations. To take the quiz, visit sleepfoundation.org. Sweet teens Researchers say teenagers who eat or drink a lot of fructose, which is a common sweetener in sodas and other processed foods, show signs of problems in their blood that could make things worse for them as adults. Dr. Vanessa Bundy, a Medical College of Georgia researcher, looked at data on 559 teens aged 14-18 and checked for things like high blood pressure and high blood sugar levels. Bundy found that the adolescents who consumed more fructose had higher circulating levels of factors that are known to contribute to cardiovascular disease in adults and to raise the risk of diabetes. The study was published in The Journal of Nutrition and was supported by the National Institutes of Health.

The buzz on bond issues By SARAH WILSON Recently a reader wrote wondering if voters really understood what municipal bonds are and how they work. Good question – especially with several bond issues on the upcoming April 3 ballot. Municipal bonds are issued by cities, agencies, special-purpose districts, school districts or airports to provide funds for major public maintenance projects and capital improvements. At the time of issuance, the bond issuer receives a cash payment in exchange for a promise to repay the bond holders (investors) over time. Repayment periods can be as short as a few months or as long as several decades. Bond issuers fund the repayment through a debt service levy (taxes), which is why voters must approve bond issues. Ultimately, it is the current and future residents of the municipality who repay the bonds. The Missouri Constitution requires a four-sevenths, or 57.14 percent, majority to pass a bond issue. A no-tax increase bond issue indicates that the bond issuer expects the existing debt service levy to be adequate to meet the repayment requirements of the bond issue, thus resulting in no tax increase. Two of the bond issues to be voted on during the April 3 election are:

The proposition also would include constructing, reconstructing, improving and furnishing facilities for Metro West, including renovating all stations, constructing and furnishing additional facilities, computer and technology and general improvements at all district facilities. If the proposition is approved, the adjusted debt service levy of Metro West is estimated to remain unchanged at 15 cents per $100 assessed value of real and personal property.

Rockwood School District’s Proposition R School systems receive two basic types of funding: the annual operating budget and bond issue funds. The Rockwood School District’s Prop R is a no-tax increase bond issue, which means each year, the district will pay off the debt from previous bond issues. Therefore, assessed value grows. Prop R would cost $43,200,000 to acquire, construct, renovate, repair, improve, furnish and equip school sites, buildings and related facilities in the district, including technology infrastructure and classroom technology, safety and health measures, and maintenance of current facilities by continuing to fund major capital repairs Metro West Fire Protection and improvements.

Q: What benefit, if any, do you think Transportation Development Districts have as a funding mechanism for city improvements? CREVE COEUR Barry Glantz: Conceptually, I’m not opposed to TDDs. We have two operating in the city right now. One is not functioning well at all. The other one is functioning better, and I guess the city learned a lot from the first one. Of course, my interests lie in Creve Coeur, but I think any city needs to be very careful before proceeding with any TDDs to make sure that financing mechanism is the appropriate way to pay for improvements for the community. For instance on the Olive/Graeser TDD, there was also the possibility that the city could just pay for it out of their capital improvement fund. I think in analyzing whether or not TDD is appropriate, you need to make sure you get input from all stakeholders in the community that would be involved and/or affected, and I think you need a very politically independent board or group of advisers advising the city in that regard. Then if the city does proceed with the TDD, the TDD board makeup should be completely independent of political influence. I think you want to make sure as a city that you have every possible tool available when making decisions like this. The flip side is saying that for the first TDD, the Olive/Craig Road area, we need to extricate ourselves or get out of it. But that is much easier said than done. Laura Bryant: “While I have always supported important beautification and safety projects along major Creve Coeur thoroughfares, I also have expressed grave and public concerns about the massively behind-schedule, over-budget and controversial Olive Bou-

levard TDD. For example, at least five letters were sent to a local gas station owner threatening eminent domain, even though the targeted business actually operated outside the district’s boundaries. The Olive Boulevard TDD Board also used taxpayer dollars to hire an eminent domain attorney, but then never actually followed through – apparently because condemnation was being used only to intimidate or because the heightened public scrutiny and media coverage made it difficult to proceed. The gas station eventually was purchased, without government pressure or intervention, for an undisclosed price and torn down. Today the lot stands empty. Meanwhile, I continue to strongly support an exit strategy for the Olive Boulevard TDD. It’s time to learn from the mistakes, shortfalls and delays. I believe that shutting down this misguided project and refocusing the city’s resources would help restore the community’s trust and confidence.” Q: What role, if any, do you think Tax Increment Financing should play in attracting new community development?

ELLISVILLE Michelle Murray: Regarding the proposed redevelopment, known technically as RPA-1, just west of the intersection of Manchester and Clarkson roads, my take is that economic development is a priority. First and foremost, I’m most concerned about attracting new business to Ellisville’s existing and unoccupied retail and office space. Case in point, the City Council just approved a new tenant for the long-vacant former DeBasio space at the corner of Clarkson and Clayton. This new corporate citizen – Savers – is a national retail business and new entrant into the St. Louis marketplace that will bring needed revenue to the city. Savers did not request any assistance for redeveloping that property and while it’s important to note that they plan to use the existing structure, they are investing heavily to bring the property up to code and improve its overall appearance. I support business investment in Ellisville, however, I have fundamental disagreement with the use of TIF in it’s current form. Certainly I understand the perspective of those advocate for the use of TIF, given its pervasive use in St. Louis County. However, this doesn’t make the use of TIF right nor in the best interest of Ellisville. I do not support the use of TIF, regardless of which developer and by proxy, retailer, is requesting it.

Robert Srote: Tax increment financing is an economic development tool that can and has benefited communities nationwide when used responsibly. However, TIF has evolved over the years to include not only property tax increments but also sales tax increments as incentives to help finance developments. The problem I have with TIF lies in sales tax increment financing not so much property tax increment financing. Offering a developer an incentive by allowing him to capture the incremental increase in property taxes for a specified period of time, in a qualified development area, as a result of their property and infrastructure development in an area that otherwise may not be redeveloped does not take money out of the pockets of the individual taxpayer to help fund the project. On the other hand, if sales tax incentives are going to be offered as a developer incentive then I believe the proposal should be voted on by the community. My reasoning is that taxes generated by sales – economic activity taxes – is disposable income that would be spent by the community regardless of whether or not the project was developed (it is money that would just be spent elsewhere and likely not within a TIF district); whereas, the property tax increment would not exist if it were not for the project development. So long as other communities are utilizing TIF as a method for attracting economic development, Ellisville, to stay competitive, must consider TIF as well.

district representatives who gave a negative recommendation. Make sure they vote no on March 21 and if they pass it or try to delay it until after the election, well, you decide. Bottom line, a TIF is a tax. It can be used as a slush fund and often goes unmonitored.

Q: Much debate has taken place around the Town Center Plan. What is your hope for its resolution? WILDWOOD Mayor Tim Woerther: In regard to the Town Center Plan, the residents of the city deserve the Town Center Plan they worked on, that they recommended and that has been approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission to be approved by the council. As for big box stores in the Town Center, the plan has been approved and would allow up to 80,000 square feet. That’s a pretty big box in the downtown district, and it’s being held captive by a few council people. However, the city is going to continue our very conservative fiscal practices. Those things will not change and are part of our DNA. Unlike other municipalities, we’ll always be very conservative fiscally, good times or bad.

Ed Marshall: The controversy about the Town Center Plan and the 10-year review process has definitely been a struggle since the review process began in 2008; the previous updates such as the City’s Master Plan and the Charter Review Commission all required by the Charter itself includes citizens to particiAdam Paul: If using a TIF is a such a great tool, why pate in the process of providing input and isn’t it up for public referendum?

By CAROL ENRIGHT The Chesterfield City Council has named Mary Brown the 2011 Citizen of the Year. Mayor Bruce Geiger presented the award to Brown at the March 5 City Council meeting. Among the family and friends in attendance at Chesterfield City Hall were former Chesterfield mayors John Nations and Nancy Greenwood, former city attorney Doug Beech, and members of Chesterfield Arts and the Chesterfield Kiwanis. Brown has a long history of service to the city that began with her efforts to incorporate the city in 1987. She served on the city’s first Planning Commission from 1988 to 1994, and as a member of the Chesterfield City Council representing Ward IV from 1997 until 2007. In addition, Brown has volunteered with the Chesterfield Kiwanis for 15 years, the Circle of Concern for more than 20 years and the League of Women Voters for 34 years. She is a board member of Chesterfield Arts and serves as a liaison to the city’s Architectural Review Board. Geiger honored Brown for her service to Chesterfield and her integral role in the city’s beautification, which earned her the title of “the tree lady.” “Mary is one of those people who just gets involved,” said Geiger. “She’s active. She’s the type of person you want to know if you have something to get done. You call Mary Brown.” Geiger said that when Brown asked him to run for City Council in 2001, “the only answer she would accept was ‘yes.’”

He subsequently served on the City Council with Brown for six years. “I found that Mary was always well informed. She knew what she was talking about. She could be very persistent and very persuasive,” he said. “It’s my absolute pleasure on behalf of the City Council and the city staff and the folks who are sitting out here to recognize Mary as the 2011 Chesterfield Citizen of the Year.” Nations called Brown “the woman who is primarily responsible for so much that is good in our community.” “It is because of what you gave to this city that people love the way that it looks,” he said. Greenwood also remembered Brown’s work to beautify the city. She said that as a member of the city Planning Commission “one of the first things she always asked was, ‘What about the trees?’” “To me, she really deserved this award because she epitomizes what we would want a Citizen of the Year to be – someone who has longevity, someone who has given freely of their time and their energy and, indeed, Mary has done that.” Accepting the award, Brown said, “it means so much to me.” “The city of Chesterfield has given me the opportunity to do the things that I have been involved in – and that’s what I am most grateful for,” said Brown. “I’m the one who should be giving the city the plaque that says, ‘Thank you,’ for the opportunity that it has given me.” The City Council unanimously selected Brown as the recipient of this year’s award.

Dispatch Merger: Coming to terms St. Louis Hot Tub Warehouse over who’s answering the call

By JIM ERICKSON It may not be the proverbial “line in the sand” but the North Central Fire Alarm group has told the Central County Emergency 911 Board of Directors what North Central’s consensus expectations are in connection with a strategic planning partnership aimed at studying a merger of the two groups. And the Central County Board’s response was, well, nothing – at least not for the time being – a situation that North County spokesman, Terry Loehrer, chief of the Pattonville Fire District, perplexed. “We were hoping to get some kind of NAME BRAND SPA concurrence or feedback on these issues,” WITH WATERFALLS, Loehrer said. “We have these strategic LED LIGHTS, STEREO AND planning meetings coming up and we think Milk * Dark * White LOTS MORE FOR ONLY it’s important to know where the boards are NEXT RUN: Michael Slawin 02/26/12 Solid Chocolate Bunnies $ on these points.” Custom Easter Baskets SIZE: Michael Turner, Central County’s execuFEAST Boxed Chocolate Cream 2X6.23 • We Service & Repair any brand Filled Easter Eggs tive director, said the issues had been dis•We buy used spas Jelly Beans PROOF TIME: 2/13/2012 4:18:05 PM cussed in earlier sessions and that all his • We sell spa covers board was expecting was confirmation of • We can move & relocate spas 1755 Clarkson Rd. • Chesterfield North Central’s views. 1/2 mile south of Chesterfield Mall 16329 Westwoods Business Park Dr. Clarkson Square Shopping Center, near Toys R Us From its operational base in Ellisville, (Off Old State Rd. • Just South of Manchester) Monday-Saturday 10-6 • Sunday 12-4 Central County handles 911 calls and the (636) 394-4600 dispatching of fire and emergency medical 636-537-3300 www.besthottubprices.com service (EMS) responders for seven fire Each store independently owned and operated. protection districts and municipalities in the West County area.

with power to veto the overall committee’s decisions. In addition, North Central called for an annual stakeholder meeting to review budgetary and operating issues and offered a proposed policy that both dispatch agency boards agree to provide fire and EMS dispatching services to all North Central agencies. The services would be paid for from property tax levies of 5 cents per $100 assessed valuation for departments opting for owner status in the merged entity. Departments preferring contract agency status would pay 4 cents per $100 assessed valuation. The primary difference between ownership and contract status is that the former would have voting rights on a larger merged board. However, North Central would be limited to two board seats, and voting rights would rotate if more than two departments opted for ownership status. The current Central County board has five members. A potential sticking point on the funding issue stems from differences in the way the North Central and Central County departments operate. Central County’s memberdepartments deal with both fire and EMS calls while nine of North Central’s 17 member operations contract with Christian Hospital to provide EMS response. Hospital ambulances are dispatched by North Central but Christian does not contribute to the dispatching service’s budget. As with Central County, most of North Central’s call volume involves medical emergencies. The merger is by no means a certainty. The Metro West Fire Protection District has voiced early opposition, pointing to the financial issues involved and arguing that such a large-scale expansion is fraught with complexities and the possibility of a drop in service quality. Central County’s own employees also have signed a letter to the Board opposing the move.

Central County acquires new member By JIM ERICKSON The Meramec Ambulance District will become a voting member of the Central County Emergency 911 Dispatching Center on July 1. Meramec, which provides emergency medical services to parts of Jefferson, Franklin and St. Louis Counties, has been a Central County contract agency for some 20 years, according to Christine Neal, the Meramec chief. A contract agency is a fire or EMS department whose 911 calls are handled

by Central County but is not a “participating entity” in the dispatching service. As a participating entity, Meramec will contribute revenues from a tax levy of 4 cents per $100 assessed valuation on property in the district. As a contract agency, Meramec paid 3 cents per $100 assessed valuation for 911 call answering and dispatching services. Neal said one of the ambulance district’s six board members will become Meramec’s representative on the Central County Board.

By CAROL ENRIGHT In a little more than a fortnight, the state of Missouri received notice that two out-of-state corporations would be closing their Chesterfield offices in April. The Worker Readjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) requires employers to provide 60 days advance notice of mass layoffs and plant closings. On Feb. 14, Coventry Health Care Inc., based in Bethesda, Md., filed a WARN notice with the Missouri Department of Economic Development that it would close its Chesterfield office and lay off 65 employees there by April 9. Coventry, previously known as Group Health Plan locally, is one of the area’s largest health-maintenance organizations.

In 2010, it acquired Mercy Health Plan in Chesterfield. On March 1, Aurora Bank of Wilmington, Del., notified the state that it would be closing its Chesterfield loan office April 30, resulting in 146 layoffs. The Correspondent Lending unit, currently located at 390 S. Woods Mill Road, is part of the bank’s residential mortgage servicing business. On its website, the bank states that it will continue to service its current mortgage customers, but that it is “no longer accepting new loan registrations or locks.” Aurora Bank is a subsidiary of Lehman Brothers Bancorp Inc., which just emerged from bankruptcy and is currently seeking to sell off a number of its assets including Aurora Bank.

Lake Expo rises out of the ashes A fire destroyed Lost Valley Lake’s sports arena on Aug. 16, 2009, but the resort developed a unique and exciting way to bring it back. Lost Valley Lake Resort is an association of 10,000 owners, including Wildwood residents, that live within a 90-mile radius of the resort. With coordination and cooperation among these owners, the developer, local contractors and management, the sports complex has been rebuilt. “Only metal and wood was lost that day, and it is a blessing that no one got hurt,” Carrie Tainter, resort manager, said. From the ashes of the fire, a new facility has emerged: Lake Expo. To celebrate, Lost Valley Lake will hold a grand re-opening open house on March 31 from 1-6 p.m. The event will include a tour of the complex and a chance to meet everyone that contributed to making this a successful venture.

Lost Valley Lake Resort has dealt with fire on two occasions – the Lodge was lost in 2004. The exterior of the new lodge had just been completed when the 2009 fire happened. To move forward, the developer and the Board of Directors decided to approach rebuilding with a new purpose. Rather than have all the amenities in one building as before, the team chose to build a separate aquatic center, which houses two indoor pools, a kiddies’ pool and a sauna. They transformed the BBQ Shack into a new restaurant, the Tuscan Grille, and added a ballroom to the back of the old sports arena. The new 44,000-square-foot Lake Expo houses a wide range of amenities including Pirates Cove mini golf and a Hollywood Fitness Center. To learn more call (800) 865-2100, visit lakeexpo.lostvalleylake.com, or plan to attend the March 31 open house.

ST. JUDE NOVENA

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us. St. Jude, Worker of Miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, Help of the Hopeless, pray for us. Say prayer nine times a day; by the 8th day prayer will be answered. Say it for nine days. Then publish. Your prayers will be answered. It has never been known to fail. Thank you, St. Jude. PMR

“May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be praised, adored, and glorified now and forever. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus I put my trust in you. Holy Mary, Mother of Jesus, pray for me. St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, pray for me. St. Jude of hopeless cases, pray for me and grant me this favor.” Thank you, St. Jude. JS. Say nine times daily for nine days and publish this prayer. JS Novena to the Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit, you who make me see everything and show me the way to reach my ideals. Give me the divine gift to forgive and forget them all who have done wrong to me. I, in short dialogue, want to thank you in everything and confirm once more that I never want to be separated from you no matter how great the material desires may be. I want to be with you and my beloved one in our perpetual glory. Thanks for favors. Pray this prayer for three consecutive days without asking for wish. After third day, wish will be granted no matter how difficult. Promise to publish this dialogue as soon as your favor has been granted. ND

In the short time that E404 has been involved with the Meadows, they have taken the community of 54 home sites and sold 39 villas. Prices range from about $290,000 to over $400,000.
