The Mosque Controversy


Sellers & Buyers Advantage

Fees vary for homes over $300K.

636-532-0228 or 636-391-2900 The proposed mosque near where the World Trade Center was attacked and destroyed, along with thousands of American lives, would be a 15-story middle finger to America. It takes a high IQ to evade the obvious, so it is not surprising that the intelligentsia are out in force, decrying those who criticize this calculated insult. What may surprise some people is that the American taxpayer is currently financing a trip to the Middle East by the imam who is pushing this project, so that he can raise the money to build it. The State Department is subsidizing his travel. The big talking point is that this is an issue about “religious freedom” and that Muslims have a “right” to build a mosque where they choose. But those who oppose this project are not claiming that there is no legal right to build a mosque near the site of the World Trade Center. If anybody did, it would be a matter for the courts to decide – and they would undoubtedly say that it is not illegal to build a mosque near the site of the World Trade Center attack. The intelligentsia and others who are wrapping themselves in the Constitution are fighting a phony war against a straw man. Why create a false issue, except to evade the real issue? Our betters are telling us that we need to be more “tolerant” and more “sensitive” to the feelings of Muslims. But if we are supposed to be sensitive to Muslims, why are Muslims not supposed to be sensitive to the feelings of millions of Americans, for whom 9/11 was the biggest national trauma since Pearl Harbor? It would not be illegal for Japanese Americans to build a massive Shinto shrine next to Pearl Harbor. But, in all these years, they have never sought to do it. When Catholic authorities in Poland were planning to build an institution for nuns, years ago, and someone pointed out that it would be near the site of a concentration camp that carried out genocide, the Pope intervened to stop it. He didn’t say that the Catholic Church had a legal right to build there, as it undoubtedly did. Instead, he respected the painful feelings of other people. And he certainly did not denounce those who called attention to the concentration camp. There is no question that Muslims have

a right to build a mosque where they chose to. The real question is why they chose that particular location, in a country that covers more than 3 million square miles. If we all did everything that we have a legal right to do, we could not even survive as individuals, much less as a society. So the question is whether those who are planning a Ground Zero mosque want to be part of American society or just to see how much they can get away with in American society. Can anyone in his right mind believe that this was intended to show solidarity with Americans, rather than solidarity with those who attacked America? Does anyone imagine that the Middle East nations, including Iran, from whom financial contributions will be solicited, want to promote reconciliation between Americans and Muslims? That the President of the United States has joined the chorus of those calling the Ground Zero mosque a religious freedom issue tells us a lot about the moral dry rot that is undermining this country from within. In this, as in other things, Barack Obama is not so much the cause of our decline but the culmination of it. He had many predecessors and many contemporaries who represent the same mindset and the same malaise. There are people for whom moral preening has become a way of life. They are out in force denouncing critics of the Ground Zero mosque. There are others for whom a citizen of the world affectation puts them one-up on those of us who are grateful to be Americans, and to enjoy a freedom that is all too rare in other countries around the world, even at this late date in human history. They think the United States is somehow on trial, and needs to prove itself to others by bending over backwards. But bending over backwards does not win friends. It loses respect, including self-respect.

well cared for dogs the people against the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act would have you believe are the norm. We see dogs coming to us with overgrown nails, severely matted coats, missing eyes or legs, hernias (and) rotten mouths, just to name a few conditions. Some of the unwanted puppy mill dogs are taken to auctions to be sold. Last spring, we had 10 dogs that were bought for 1 cent each. The auctioneer announced the vet was waiting in the back to euthanize the dogs if someone didn’t buy them. They became part of our rescue for 10 cents. Karen Strange says there are already strict standards enforced by the USDA and Mo. Department of Agriculture, even to the   point where breeders are written up because of “cobwebs.” But then, Kelly Smith says the Mo. Department of Agriculture’s budget has been slashed so they can’t do timely inspections. I can tell you the dogs I have worked with would love to have cobwebs as their only problem.    An audit by the U.S. government detailed the failure of  the USDA to regulate breeders. You can read the full report at usda,gov/oig/webdocs/33002-4-SF.pdf. If you read the (Puppy Mill) Cruelty Prevention Act, you see that it only applies to dogs. And it does set breeding limits and set standards for humane treatment. Watch the Fox2 report that aired this summer  about the puppy mill near St. Louis, which has 1,000 dogs. Breeders keep pumping out all these puppies. Our shelters are full. Some shelters euthanize to make more room. Other shelters are no kill, so no more dogs can be taken in until one is adopted.

To the Editor: Hey Carl, caught your letter in the Sept. 1 issue of West Newsmagazine, and although I could write a lengthy and quite detailed positive response, I am quite confident we would still end in disagreement. Instead, I suggest you read the editorial, “Rose Colored Glasses,” as printed on the following page (of the Sept. 1 issue).  The editors of this magazine have so cleverly pointed out the positive side of our current downturn – and they are so right. I walked into Home Depot yesterday and was greeted at the door by more than one smiling salesperson ready to walk me thorough every aisle if I so needed. Somewhere in my detailed response to your question, Carl, I would suggest that instead of spending so much time with hatred and thoughts of failure for our leaders that we all look within as to how we may help return this country to a time when we knew our neighbors; routinely helped our fellow man; treated our superiors and those in our employ with respect; met with our family daily at that lost family dinner table; and focused on quality in our jobs, in our work and in our play. My thanks to the editors of this magazine for such a perfect editorial reminding us to concentrate on the good things in life – even during these tough times we face as a nation – regardless of which administration was driving the bus. Ron Unterreiner Chesterfield

percent of the respondents favored desegregation. Therefore, if that decision had been based on the opinion of the white members of the Armed Forces, the Armed Forces would have remained segregated. Would that have been in the best interest of the country and all the citizens of the country? Although one may have great sympathy for those who lost relatives and friends on 9/11, their grief and concern does not give them the right to deny other citizens their Constitutional rights. The fact of the matter is all Muslims are not terrorists and all Muslims are not responsible for the actions of the terrorists on 9/11. It would be unreasonable to hold all Christians responsible for the invasion of Iraq and the deaths of tens of thousands of human beings because President Bush professed to be a Christian. We should be aware that the issue of the cultural center proposed to be built in lower Manhattan is an effort by political forces in this country to divert the people’s attention from the critical issues we are facing. There has been a mosque four blocks from the site of the World Trade Center for more than 40 years. Religious services have been conducted at the proposed site for the cultural center for some time. What advantage is there to the U.S. to antagonize more than a billion world citizens? As long as citizens are focused on this diversion, they will pay little attention to opposition being waged against the current Administration and the damage said opposition is causing the country. We simply cannot allow ourselves to be manipulated by this crass cynicism. We must continue to demand that our elected officials, regardless of party affiliation, act in the best interest of the country and all of its citizens. James O. Gordon St. Albans

Teacher compensation

To the Editor: In a letter to the editor placed in the Sept. 1 issue from Rick and Ann Standal of Ballwin, several statistical facts were quoted, which don’t tell the true story of today’s dedicated educators. As a husband of a primary teacher, I have watched my wife work 10-plus hours per day, six days per week to keep up with all the requirements of the federal, state, district, and parental expectations for her students; providing students with a quality education; and preparing each student to be successful in the next school year. My wife and many in the education field attend summer workshops and college classes to keep up with the educational methods taught in the schools today. A large majority of teachers have earned their master’s degree. To provide a quality educational experience for the elementary student, many teachers supplement materials for their classrooms with upwards of $1,000$2,000 per school year out of pocket. Given the hours worked, additional educational requirements (and) out of pocket expenses, the compensation for my wife and many educators is less than $20 per hour. These highly qualified professionals are responsible for the education of our future. This is way below market value in the private sector, given all the skill sets required by today’s classroom teachers. Unfortunately, the letter sent by Rick and Ann is a common misperception of those not in the education field. For many years, I had the same perception until my wife became an educator. Teaching is a profession that helps our children become productive citizens in our community. Teachers have an awesome responsibility to each student, parent, and stakeholder. I applaud my wife and other educators that have the passion to work with young people and their parents each year. I’m sorry that the Standals don’t see the value of our educators today.

News Br iefs BALLWIN Trouble on Steamboat Numerous thefts from vehicles and property damages occurred on Aug. 21 in the 100 and 200 blocks of Steamboat Lane in Ballwin. According to Ballwin Police, victims of the crimes stated that they went to their vehicles in the morning to discover their windows were smashed and items were missing from inside the vehicles. The items stolen included cash, iPods, GPS units and other valuables. The value of the stolen items and damages to the vehicles exceeded $5,000.

CHESTERFIELD Teens arrested



Chesterfield Police have issued warrants against two suspects arrested in connection with the theft of two vehicles from the

17900 block of Greyeagle Court. The thefts occurred early on the morning of Aug. 25. Arrested were Zachary Cox, of Chesterfield, and Zachary Forgy, of Wildwood. Both suspects were aged 18 at the time of the arrests. Each was charged with one count of Burglary 1st Degree and two counts of Theft of a Motor Vehicle. The subjects were being held at the St. Louis County Jail on a $25,000 bond.

Boone Bridge to close again The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) will close westbound Route 40 at the Missouri River (Daniel Boone Bridge) for more repair work on the weekend of Sept. 17-20. The closure will impact all drivers heading from Chesterfield to St. Charles County those weekends, as well as fans heading to the Sept. 18 Missouri home football game against San Diego State. Crews will close westbound Route 40, and all access to St. Charles County from Route 40, at 8 p.m. on Fri., Sept. 17 and will reopen the route by 5 a.m. on Mon., Sept. 20. During the closure, crews will continue to reset bearings, replace expansion joints and repair splice plates on the bridge.

For motorists returning to St. Louis, eastbound Route 40 over the Missouri River will remain open. “We understand how important the traditions are for home games at Mizzou,” said Karen Yeomans, West St. Louis County area engineer. “There are a lot of activities in St. Charles County which draw people from St. Louis, including the wineries, bike trails and many other events. People will still be able to do these activities, but knowing about this work will help people determine which routes they need to use to get to them. To help, we’ll minimize construction work on the I-270 and I-70 detour route. We will provide detour information on our overhead message boards.” Travelers can get up-to-the-minute traffic information on interstates or major state routes by dialing 5-1-1 from most cell phones; those who cannot access 5-1-1 from their telephones should call (877) 478-5511.

Going to bat for Circle Of Concern The Ballwin Athletic Association is stepping up to the plate and hosting a community-wide food drive to restock Circle Of Concern’s food pantry. Local businesses, community groups and individuals are asked to bring non-perishable food to the Ballwin Ballpark between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Fri., Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sat., Sept. 18 or from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sun., Sept. 19. Ballwin Ballpark is located one block south of Manchester Road, off Ballpark Drive, behind Ballwin Olde Town Shopping Center. The number of people fed by Circle Of Concern is tracking 25 percent ahead of last year’s record pace, and many families seeking food are asking for assistance for the first time. “We are meeting many victims of this recession,” Circle Director Glenn Koenen said. “People are still losing jobs or running out of savings. Each day, we meet three, four or more families coming to our pantry for the first time.” Koenen said donations are ahead of 2009, but the demand is not being met, and the pantry is completely out of some items. Products for which Circle has particular need include peanut butter, canned pasta with meat, cereal, canned fruit, spaghetti sauce, and muffin or cake mixes. Circle Of Concern provides every family with a one-week supply of items for nutritious meals. Last year, the Valley Park-based charity shared 1.2 million pounds of food and household items.

ST. LOUIS COUNTY Less crime Crime continues its downward trend in areas patrolled by St. Louis County Police. Index crime statistics comparing the first seven months of 2010 to 2009 in unincorporated St. Louis County, and the municipalities served by St. Louis County Police officers, show an overall reduction of 1.5 percent. Last year was the second lowest reported crime in nearly 30 years. According to St. Louis County Chief of Police Timothy E. Fitch, there are many reasons for the decline in crime. “We have implemented several special enforcement programs that were targeted at high crime areas,” Fitch said. “We have seen significant decreases in areas such as rape, robbery, larceny and motor vehicle theft. The proactive programs and partnerships that the County Police have initiated in our community are reflected through these statistics.”

Ellisville considers development of Clarkson-Manchester intersection By TED DIXON JR. The city of Ellisville is looking at ways to revitalize the area around Manchester and Clarkson Roads by spurring possible mixed used (retail and office) development for that corridor. The effort ties in with the St. Louis Great Streets Initiative, a plan launched in 2006 by the East-West Gateway Council of Governments to expand the way communities think of their streets. In 2008, Ballwin, Ellisville, Manchester, Wildwood and Winchester, along with the West County Chamber of Commerce, nominated the 5-mile stretch of Manchester Road from Hwy. 141 to Hwy. 109 as a Great Streets demonstration project with the goals of making the corridor more visually appealing, economically vibrant and accessible for all modes of transportation. Ellisville’s planning efforts revealed that poor access to businesses greatly contributed to the declining economic performance of Manchester Road, according to a request for proposal (RFP) recently issued by the city. The proliferation of curb cuts is

confusing, and an access management strategy should be implemented as part of any redevelopment, city officials determined. Ellisville city leaders envision a new town center such as the Fountain Plaza development at Clayton and Clarkson Roads that would encompass all four quadrants at the intersection. The intent is to encourage incremental redevelopment of the area with a distinctive feel that would remain viable even as tenants come and go, according to the RFP. The desired result would foster a real sense of community for Ellisville. Ellisville City Manager Kevin Bookout said the city recently hired a planning firm to help with the process. He said the city has contacted several developers in attempts to lure them to the area. The city is soliciting proposals from those who are interested in constructing retail development at the southwest portion of the Clarkson-Manchester intersection. Ellisville Mayor Matt Pirrello said he has heard tidbits of information surrounding the proposals.

“We’re waiting to see how many developers come back with interest,” Pirrello said. Although no specific proposal for development has been made, Bookout said the city has until the end of this month to accept offers. City officials want proposals to conform to both the Ellisville Comprehensive Plan and Economic Development Strategic Implementation Plan. The city’s overall goal is to encourage a development that integrates with the overall vision of a town center at the intersection. According to the RFP, Ellisville will consider the use of taxing incentives. If tax incentives are requested, the district must include all properties within the area. The area is comprised of 37 parcels located principally along the southern right-of-way of Manchester Road. It encompasses 27.6 acres, excluding the Manchester Road and Kiefer Creek Road right-of-way. The area currently contains nine commercial structures, including the West County Nissan automobile dealership.

The area also includes four small businesses and the 25-building, 100-unit Clarkchester apartment complex. Some buildings are in a state of deterioration. City officials have great concern with the now vacant and deteriorating auto dealerships, and the possibility that the remaining dealership will relocate. The West County Nissan dealership will be moving to a new location on Manchester Road, at the site of the former Plunkett’s Home Furnishings store in Ballwin. “That whole corner will be completely vacant,” Pirrello said. Pirrello said the city knew that West County Nissan’s stay in Ellisville would be 18-24 months when the business moved in. In the meantime, the city is looking for proposals that offer “creativity and quality design and landscaping.” The development plan should emphasize a well-constructed and vehicular environment that includes provisions for quality public spaces such as broad walkways and public amenities. The deadline for submitting proposals to the city is 5 p.m. on Sept. 24.

Good races make good neighbors Ballwin subdivision to hold 36th annual soap box derby By SHEILA FRAYNE RHOADES For residents of a Ballwin neighborhood, one of the most anticipated days of the year is right around the corner. On Sept. 18, the Whispering Oakwood 500 Soap Box Derby will make its 36th running. The event has quite a history. Thirty-six years ago, a group of fathers residing in Ballwin’s Whispering Oakwood Subdivision decided it would be fun to build a couple of soap box derby cars for their kids and then race them down the hill on Camargo Drive. All but a handful of those residents have moved on, but their idea not only stuck – it grew to become the “WO 500” – a huge neighborhood block party and proud tradition. “‘WO 500’ is a wonderful, longstanding tradition in our neighborhood,” said Whispering Oakwood resident Lisa Size. “We have families living here now (whose) parents attended this as children, and they are bringing their own children to it now.” Resident Susan Anderson agreed. “(My husband) and I feel so strongly about the value of this neighborhood tradition and the place it will hold in our kids’ memories of growing up that it is the one day we allow them to skip their other activities,” Anderson said. “We hope that some day we can share it with our grandkids.” Some of the original derby cars have been rebuilt numerous times and passed down from one child to another. Currently, 11 racecars reside permanently in the subdivision.

This year, more than a dozen kids aged 9-12 will take part in the race. “The kids take it seriously, racing really big cars down a ¼-mile, sloping street,” said Michael Rose, who has lived in the subdivision for two years and is helping organize the event. There will be plenty action for neighbors not racing in the derby, too. The event has expanded to include running races, bicycle/Big Wheel races, Frisbee throws, a parade with floats, an art contest, moon bouncer, music, and even a drive-in movie. The “WO 500” King and Queen are chosen (names are picked out of a hat) and ride in the parade in a convertible. Awards are given to every participant in every event. The event is financed and organized by a neighborhood committee of parents. Some of the originators have passed the torch to their sons and sons-in-law to keep the tradition alive. There are fathers who are helping organize this year’s race who were not yet born when the first one took place. Rose said that those who attend the event should have

some connection to the neighborhood. “I want to get the word out to people who used to live here and/or participate in the event that the event still is going strong, and to please come join us,” Rose said, adding that even those who moved from the neighborhood 35 years ago are encouraged to attend. To learn what others are saying about the “WO 500” and view photos from years past, visit the “I grew up in Whispering Oakwood” page on Facebook.

‘Amazing’ motorsports event coming to Chesterfield Race aims to recover missing children By LISA WATSON On Thurs., Sept. 30, the Fireball Run Adventurally will roll into Chesterfield. The event is a combination of motorsports and “The Amazing Race,” organizers said. During the Fireball Run, teams will travel 3,500 miles in nine days – starting in Henderson, Nev., and finishing in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “Out of all the years that we’ve done the event, this one is probably going to go down in our own personal history as the most memorable and epic event that we’ve ever had,” said organizer Natalie Zimmerman. “The cities that are on board have really gone above and beyond to welcome the teams and show them the best part of their community.” One purpose of the event is to support the Polly Klaas Foundation with its Race to Recover America’s Missing Children. The Polly Klaas foundation was named after the founder’s daughter, who was taken from her room by an intruder and murdered. Her body was found in December 1993, and now the Foundation works to help find missing children. Each team will distribute flyers that picture a missing child from the team’s hometown. Each vehicle will also bear a decal that pictures the missing child, Zimmerman said. Since the Fireball Run began, the event has assisted in the recovery of 33 children, she said. The Fireball Run will arrive in Chesterfield on Sept. 30, and a public reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at St. Louis Motorsports, 1 Arnage Blvd. There will be a band and food, and specialty cars will be out for public viewing, said

Chesterfield Assistant City Administrator for Community Services and Economic Development Libbey Malberg-Tucker. Residents will have the opportunity also to meet the Fireball Run team members and get autographs, Zimmerman said. As for the race participants, they will get the opportunity to see some of Chesterfield’s sights, including the Butterfly House at Faust Park, Kemp Auto Museum and “The Awakening” sculpture, MalbergTucker said. As part of the competition, the participants will have to complete challenges at various Chesterfield locations, which might be as simple as taking a photo or might be more challenging, Zimmerman said. “Some can be interactive, depending what it is,” Zimmerman said. “We have had them navigate to a comedy club and jump up on stage and tell a joke. The number of points they received depended on a judge’s reaction to the joke.” The following morning, Oct. 1, there will be a public send-off from 8:30-9:30 a.m., when Chesterfield Mayor John Nations will wave the flag to start the teams on their trip to the next stop. That event will also be held at St. Louis Motorsports. The teams will drive a variety of rare vehicles, including the Time Car from “Back to the Future,” Lamborghinis and Challengers, Zimmerman said. Notable participants include Lamborghini test driver Valentino Balboni, Klaas Foundation President Marc Klaas, and USAC Racing President Kevin Miller. This is the second time the race is coming through Chesterfield, Zimmerman said. The first was in 2008.

Wildwood seeks public input on new park By SARAH WILSON In developing a new public park for the community, the city of Wildwood is seeking volunteers to help determine what the park should include. “These parks are generally larger in size and have a greater diversity of facilities,” city of Wildwood Director of Planning and Parks Joe Vujnich said. “The city has yet to determine what facilities they will be.

Creve Coeur

Funding offered for domestic violence shelters By TED DIXON JR. Anyone who has paid a fine for a moving traffic violation or pleaded guilty on any criminal ordinance violation in Creve Coeur might be pleased to know that some funds for the fines they paid are used to help local shelters for battered persons. Missouri domestic violence shelters throughout September can apply for some of those funds. For the past several years, the city has participated in the Creve Coeur Domestic Violence Domestic Shelter Municipal Court Cost Fund. Authorized under Missouri state law in 1995, the city’s municipal court collects $2 on each moving traffic and criminal violation. Since its inception, more than $185,000 has been distributed by the city to area organizations such as the Salvation Army, the Kathy J. Weinman Shelter, Lydia’s House, Alternatives for Living in Violent Environments (ALIVE), the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, the Women’s Safe House, and the Sonlight Family Center. This year, Creve Coeur City Admistrator Mark Perkins said, the city distributed $18,067 to those organizations. Through Thurs., Sept. 30, area organizations can apply for funding for the upcoming year. Perkins said after review of the application, the city provides money for the shelters. The shelters are not located in Creve Coeur. The ones that do receive assistance are very appreciative of the funding. The application for funding from the Domestic Violence Municipal Court Cost Fund can be found on the city’s Web site,

going to develop a concept plan so we can see what works in the park based on the citizens’ desires.” Vujnich said the city began seeking volunteers to assist with planning in August and will continue looking for volunteers until the Sept. 27 city council meeting. “We’d like to have as many people as possible by then so we can get started,” Vujnich said. “This will be the founding board for testing what the community will see in terms of product. The role for vol-

unteers is to review results of the survey and to be advocates to the community once plans are done as we move forward with its development.” Volunteers will meet roughly three to four times in the next eight months, beginning in October. Interested candidates are encouraged to call Wildwood City Hall at 458-0440 or visit the city’s Web site at to sign up or get information on upcoming meetings. “City officials recognize with every-

one’s busy schedule, we don’t want to take advantage, but we would like to have as much expertise as we can,” Vujnich said. “There is no development yet on the property, but the upcoming public engagement process is really important.” The new park will be located on a 66-acre parcel of land near the intersection of Hwys. 100 and 109. Wildwood councilmembers at the July 26 city council meeting voted to allocate $100,000 to Oates Associates to develop a design for the project.

Judging the judges Missouri judicial performance evaluations made public By BRIAN MCDOWELL Voters often neglect to learn in much detail about all of the candidates in any given election, and that is especially true regarding judges running for retention. Unlike candidates for other state offices, few potential judges run commercials or grant interviews to explain to voters why they are running or where they stand on the issues. For nearly 75 years, Missouri has used a system known as the NonPartisan Court Plan for its appellate and trial-level judges in major metro areas. The Non-Partisan Court Plan is used for selecting judges of the Supreme Court, Missouri Court of Appeals and trial judges in several areas of the state, including in St. Louis County. Before becoming a state judge, a non-partisan judge is screened by a commission of lawyers, judges and non-lawyers. The commission selects three candidates for each judicial opening and forwards their names to the governor, who chooses one candidate to fill the position. After one year on the bench and again at the end of each term, nonpartisan judges must run in retention elections. Instead of facing other candidates, they run based on their record on the bench. The ballot in a retention election reads, “Shall Judge X be retained?” To retain office, a merit-selected judge in Missouri must receive the approval of at least 50 percent of those casting ballots in his/her retention election. To help Missouri voters determine whether or not any given judge should be retained, the Missouri Judicial Performance Evaluation Committees performed and on Sept. 1 released online an in-depth evaluation of each non-partisan judge who will be standing for retention in the November election. The purpose of the evaluations is to provide Missouri voters with extensive, unbiased information about each judge’s performance. Committees evaluating the judges consisted of lawyers and non-lawyers. Along with their recommendations, the committees released: • A narrative evaluation summary that provides extensive information about each judge’s performance. • Juror evaluations of trial-level judges who presided over jury trials. • A survey of lawyers’ ratings for each judge.

• Written opinions submitted for review. Judge performance evaluations are available on the Missouri Bar’s Web site (mobar. org), on the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis Web site, ( and at, a Missouri Bar Web site that explains the state’s court system. Free copies of the committees’ recommendations also can be ordered by calling The Missouri Bar at (800) 829-4128. Libraries and courthouses will have a limited supply of the recommendations.   “The Missouri Bar urges Missourians to read the evaluations before voting this fall,” Missouri Bar President H.A. (Skip) Walther said in a press release. “There is no better source of unbiased information on whether each judge is rendering fair, efficient and impartial justice.” The Missouri Bar since 1948 has been evaluating judges appointed under the Non-Partisan Court Plan and providing that information. The Missouri Bar currently funds the evaluation process, which was created by a Supreme Court of Missouri rule in 2008.  The Missouri system of evaluation was developed after the Judicial Performance Evaluation Committee studied model rules and best practices from the American Bar Association and more than 20 judicial performance evaluation systems.

Putting it Blunt-ly A conversation with Mo. Congressman Roy Blunt By BRIAN MCDOWELL Campaigning to replace the retiring Kit Bond in the U.S. Senate, Congressman Roy Blunt (R-MO) has been to every county in Missouri and is appearing at 650 campaign events. His strategy is the same as it always has been: to listen to voters as much as he talks. Blunt’s busy campaign schedule included a recent lunch at Pujols 5 restaurant at Westport Plaza, where he claimed people are more engaged in the issues than at any time he has ever before seen. “This is a critical time,” Blunt, 60, said. “The question in this race is Mo.

Bonnie Walbran-Newell (right) gave her mother, Jeanne Breaux, a 100-watt light bulb for her 100th birthday.

Still shining after all these years West County resident Jeanne Breaux turned 100 on Aug. 31 and was surprised by the number of people who turned out to celebrate. “I never knew I was this popular,” the New Orleans native said. “It’s really unbelievable.” Breaux, a resident of St. John’s Mercy Skilled Nursing Center in Creve Coeur, moved to St. Louis several years ago, shortly after Hurricane Katrina. Her house was flooded with 9 feet of water and she could not return home, said her daughter Bonnie Walbran-Newell, who lives in the St. Louis area. “She’s doing wonderfully here,” Walbran-Newell said. Breaux is still alert and able to get around with the help of a walker. The hospital staff collected more than 100 cards for Breaux’s birthday, and a party at the nursing home included a classical pianist, cake and champagne. The night before, Walbran-Newell took her mother out to a birthday dinner and to see the Gateway Arch. “She is the queen,” Walbran-Newell said of her mother. Breaux said her favorite invention of the past 100 years is the indoor toilet, because as a child, she fell into an outdoor toilet. Her grandfather picked her up and threw her into the Gulf of Mexico to clean her off, she said. When asked if she had any advice, Breaux said, “Be happy.”

Jack Scharr, president of Fine Art Ltd. (left) and Jesse Barnes in front of Barnes’ “The Spirit of Christmas” painting commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Christmas tree.

Painting commemorates 500th anniversary of the Christmas tree By SHEILA FRAYNE RHOADES The Chesterfield-based National Christmas Tree Association (NCTA), along with Fine Art Ltd. in Chesterfield, coaxed American artist Jesse Barnes, 73, out of retirement to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Christmas tree. On Sept. 4, Barnes visited Fine Art Ltd. to sign and number limited edition prints of his commemorative painting, “The Spirit of Christmas.” “I felt this was a very special occasion, and I loved painting it,” said Barnes, who in 1983 launched his career with his “Night Before Christmas” painting. Barnes, who is known as “The Light Painter,” is famous for his distinctive use of lighting effects and attention to detail. “The Spirit of Christmas” depicts a winter night scene with a lighted outdoor tree in front of a cozy, country home. “We’re so glad that Jesse has returned to this holiday theme,” said Jack Scharr, president of Fine Art Ltd, the official licensee

of the NCTA. “We are proud to help celebrate the story of the most iconic symbol of Christmas – the decorated tree.” A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Barnes’ prints will benefit the Christmas Spirit Foundation, which is based in Chesterfield and is the charitable branch of the NCTA. Pam Helmsing, executive director of the Christmas Spirit Foundation, explained the origin of the Christmas tree. “Most everyone thinks this tradition belongs to Martin Luther, but it really began earlier in Riga, capitol of the Baltic country Latvia,” Helmsing said. “In 1510, men in the Order of the Blackheads (Merchants Guild) decorated a fir tree with paper roses in Riga’s outdoor marketplace. The tree represented the Christ Child, and the roses were a symbol of the Virgin Mary. This is the first written record of a decorated tree.” Prints of Barnes’ “The Spirit of Christmas” are available at Fine Art Ltd., 18350 Chesterfield Airport Road.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Teaching American History grants program awarded Parkway, Rockwood, Valley Park, and Union school districts a $735,017 history grant. The goal of the grant is for fifth-grade, eighth-grade, and high school American history teachers to develop a deeper knowledge of the Charters of Freedom (Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights) and how they influenced and were influenced by American presidents throughout pivotal periods in American history. The school districts are partnering with the Center for the Constitution, Bill of Rights Institute, Franklin D. Roosevelt Library and Museum, Organization of American Historians, and historians from Washington University, Saint Louis University and Webster University in offering four-year professional development opportunities. The expected outcome for the project is for teachers with American history content knowledge and instructional strategies to transfer the knowledge to their students. Approximately 45 elementary teachers, 35 high school teachers and 30 middle school teachers will participate in grant-related professional development this year.

Parkway superintendent search firm selected By DIANE PLATTNER Parkway School District officials have selected a firm to lead the search for the district’s next superintendent. The Parkway Board of Education recently announced their selection of School Exec Connect, Inc. to conduct the search for a superintendent to replace Bob Malito, who retired last June. Don Senti currently is serving as interim superintendent of Parkway. District officials said the Chicago-based School Exec Connect firm will receive $13,900 plus expenses for the duration of the new superintendent search. The school board sent request for proposals to eight independent search firms in St. Louis and nationwide. After an extensive review process, district officials selected three of the firms as finalists, Parkway School Board President Bruce Major said. “We received several excellent proposals from search firms, but School Exec Connect’s modest cost combined with their superior track record and personalized approach was clearly the best fit and value for Parkway,” Major said. “They combine an exceptionally strong nationwide network with an ability to provide the level of focus and attention our superintendent

search deserves.” District officials said additional factors that distinguished School Exec Connect from other firms included the its record of success with similar school districts and a clear understanding of Parkway’s mission and unique needs. Parkway officials said they like the value School Exec Connect places on community input in the search process. “School Exec Connect is one of the Midwest’s leading superintendent search firms,” Major noted. “The board is very

enthusiastic about their ability to help us find the best candidate for Parkway.” The school board and consultants are establishing the process, scope and timeline of the search. They plan to seek input from parents, staff and other community members as they develop a leadership profile outlining the characteristics, skills and attributes that the Parkway community desires in its next superintendent. Once approved by the school board, the leadership profile will be used to identify and evaluate potential candidates.

High school girls’ golf Lafayette came in second in the Summit Invitational at Crescent Farms with a team score of 354. Ursuline won with 348. Other team scores were St. Joseph’s Academy 355, Nerinx Hall 368, Visitation St. Joseph’s 382, Summit 383, Academy senior Howell 385, Cor Jesu Gina Della Camera. 387, Eureka 393, Marquette 419, Parkway West 422, Holt 460, Farmington 462, and Francis Howell Central 494. St. Joseph’s senior Gina Della Camera was the medalist with a 77. Her teammate, Rachel Thompson, tied for third with an 82. Marquette’s Anne Govern shot an 84. Lafayette’s Kelly Lamarche shot an 85, as did Parkway West’s Emily Goldenstein. Lafayette’s Ashton Goldammer and Claire Norfleet each shot an 87. Lafayette Coach Gaylen Laster said going into the tournament, he did not really know what to expect.

“I knew the returning girls worked hard in the off-season to improve their game,” Laster said. “Kelly Lamarche, Ashton Goldammer, Maddie Vanhouse and Claire Norfleet are returning players who were instrumental in our run to the Missouri 2A state tournament last season. “We will be working to improve our focus on each shot. Hopefully, we will improve as the season goes along. It is especially important since a new format begins this season with sectional play determining who will qualify for the state tournament this year.” Della Camera said she wanted to post a good score to help St. Joe’s finish as high as possible, and overall, it was a good tournament for the Angels. “I really want to help our younger players this year so that we are at our best at the end of the year and also to help them for next year,” Della Camera said. “It was good to have some newer players get some tournament experience, and our coaches and older players will work to help everyone get better throughout the year.” She has plans to be playing at state again. “When I was a freshman, I told my coach that I wanted to work to get into the last

group at state,” Della Camera said. “I did that last year, so my goal for this year is to help the team on and off the course so that we can be at our best at state. We are a team, and that’s how I’d like to measure our success this year. … I know we’ll be more prepared for each tournament as the season goes forward.”

High school boys’ cross country The Parkway West boys’ cross country team won the Parkway Quad to get the season off to a fast start. “One of our team goals is to win the Parkway Quad each year, so this was a good win,” Coach Cliff Shepherd said. “It is only a big win in the sense that it is our first meet of the year, and it gives us an opportunity to see how much progress we have made since last year.” Parkway West won with 29 points. Parkway Central was second with 39, while Parkway South was third with 58 and Parkway North fourth with 106. The Longhorns’ Nick Ingle, who finished 29th at state last year, took first place in the race held at Parkway Central in 18 minutes, just beating Parkway Central junior Eric Sivill, who was second also at 18 minutes. Parkway Central senior Andrew O’Campo was third in 18:03 with senior Stephen Andrew of Parkway South fourth in 18:08. Other Parkway West finishes were Steven Shearman, fifth in 18:06; Chris Carter, sixth in 18:28; Andrew Reilly, eighth in

18:35; Kevin Koboldt, ninth in 18:44; Nick Bonner, 12th in 19:16; and Alex Poppen, 18th in 19:48. Parkway West lost two from last year’s varsity squad in Jake Lamke and Kevin Schrik. “It always hurts to lose the team’s No. 1 and No. 5 runners,” said Shepherd, who added he has his largest team in several years with 45 members. They have put in the work to prepare for the season. “We have a lot of kids (seven) that have put in over 500 miles from June 1 to Labor Day weekend,” Shepherd said. “That has not happened in a long time. They seemed to be excited about wanting to have a good season.” In addition to the varsity, the Longhorns’ JV and the freshman squads also won. The JV took eight of the first 10 places, and the freshmen edged Parkway South in a very close race. This marked the fourth straight year that Parkway West has won all three of the boys’ divisions. Westminster finished third in the 11-team small schools division of the First Capitol Invitational held at McNair Park in St. Charles but claimed the overall winner in senior Daniel Everett, who finished in 16:26.67. His brother, David, finished fifth. Festus won with 66 points, followed by Ladue with 75 and Westminster with 77. Westminster’s Danny Keith came in 10th.




Hole in one Sophomore Shelby Kehr entered the golf season for the Westminster Christian Academy Wildcats on high note. During a practice round, she recorded the program’s first hole in one. Kehr stepped up to the tee box on the 163-yard eighth hole on the Colt course at Crescent Farms and took her swing. Her ball took flight into the overcast sky and landed near the front of the green where it proceeded to bounce onto the green. It then rolled about 20 feet, hit the flag stick and fell into the hole. Half the Wildcat team witnessed the flight and roll. Kehr said she just “wanted it to go straight,” but it went in the hole for something magical – a hole in one. “I threw my club down and started jumping around,” Kehr said. “My coach said he had goose bumps.” The ball is a keepsake, now on a shelf in Kehr’s room. Coach Steve Bradley was happy to see it. “I’ve been coaching golf since 1997 and have seen several holes in one by other schools. That’s why Shelby’s was so nice,” Bradley said. “I watched it, and it was one to remember.” Bradley said Kehr is “a tremendous athlete, and she has one of the nicest swings on our team.” Kehr led the JV team last year and is playing varsity this year in the fifth or sixth slot.

In the 16-team large school division, Lafayette came in seventh with 184 points. The Lancers’ Kurtis Harshman finished fourth overall, and teammate Derek Legenzoff was 16th.

High school girls’ cross country Parkway West won the Parkway Quad by slipping past the Parkway Central Colts 31-34. Parkway South finished third with 67 points. Parkway North did not have a team score. The Longhorns’ Laura Michel, a senior who was 49th in the state meet last year, won with a time of 21:46. Her Parkway West teammates – twin sisters Molly Parato and Maggie Parato – finished fourth and fifth with times of 22:42 and 23:42, respectively. Parkway Central’s Taylor Burke came in second with a time of 22:34, and Claire Roberts was third in 22:49. “It is always good to win the first meet of the year,” Parkway West Coach Charlie Cutelli said. “It is a smaller meet, which I think takes a lot of pressure off the athletes to perform. If the traveling trophy is correct, the Parkway West girls have won the Quad for the past five years, which is exciting.” Cutelli said the Parkway Central course

is a difficult one to run. “It was also very muggy out and had rained the night before and the morning of, so parts of the course were muddy,” Cutelli said. “I told the girls not to worry as much about times and to focus on packing as many of our West girls in the top 10.” That’s because it is Cutelli’s belief that the cross country season is a marathon, not a sprint. “We will really focus on building up as the season progresses,” Cutelli said. “To the girls, I stress that I want them all healthy in October. I look at conference as a big meet for the majority of the team, and districts is huge for varsity. They understand that taking a day off if they are hurt now or missing a meet like the Quad so that they don’t injure themselves is better than not being able to race at the end of the year.” Winning the opening meet gives Cutelli a good feeling about what lies ahead. “I am excited about the season ahead of us,” Cutelli said. “A core group of our seniors put in the mileage over the summer, and we are hoping it pays off. Laura Michel is definitely our front-runner, and I feel like she has a very solid pack of runners behind her, which will hopefully propel us out of districts this year. We also have a lot of younger runners that are looking strong in practice and could definitely push some of our older runners to be their best.”

you Won’t Believe you get this much... For So little green!

Prep football: Week 4 By WARREN MAYES Horace Greeley once advised people to head west, and Parkway North will do just that by taking a trip to Wentzville to face the Timberland Wolves. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. Thursday. With the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur coming on Friday at sunset, Parkway North moved the game to Thursday evening. Parkway Central and Parkway West did the same and will be playing also on Thursday. It will be the first time the two schools have met. Parkway North Coach Bob Bunton said with the districts changing every two years, you have openings on the schedule to fill. This year, the Vikings arranged to play the Wolves. “It kind of happens by luck,” Bunton said. “We try and match open dates, and I think it’s a great match for both of us. Coach (Craig) Collins has a great program out there.” Collins has eight returning starters back from last year’s 9-2 team. Timberland opened the season with two victories. Sophomore quarterback Ryan Bainbridge directs Timberland’s offense. Senior fullback Halleen Rayford is the workhorse.

Senior Nik Jehle and junior Clayton Raspberry are the halfbacks. “He’s got some big kids.The running back (Rayford) is a horse,” Bunton said. “We saw him on tape last year when we thought we might match up with them in the quarterfinals.” By playing on Thursday, Parkway North will practice Sunday to get ready. Usually, just the coaching staff comes in on a Sunday, but the early game changes that. “It won’t make much difference to us,” Bunton said. “We just have to get ready. We have to continue to not turn the ball over. That hurt us in our loss to SLUH. We’ve just got to keep getting better.” The long bus ride will not bother the Vikings. “They’ve got a great facility there,” Bunton said. “We’ve scouted them before. Our former basketball coach at North (Winston Rodgers) is their principal there. He’s a good guy and a good friend. The older you get, the more you enjoy playing people you respect and get along with. “I think this a great match-up. I know it’s a nice change up for us. We’ve played other GAC (Gateway Athletic Conference) teams before. Timberland is a fresh face.

By WARREN MAYES Do not expect Parkway North defensive tackle Jacob Stone to break out into song when he tackles the opposing quarterback – but he could. Stone, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound senior is a captain for the Vikings and an all-conference player. He is a 4.0 student who had the lead in the Parkway North school musical “Sweeney Todd” last winter. “He’s an ideal student athlete,” Parkway North Coach Bob Bunton said. “He’s well respected by the faculty, staff and student body. He’s everything you’d want in a student. He’s a great ambassador for Parkway North.” After his freshman year, Stone chose not to play football. He got into theater his sophomore year. “I participated in the spring play that year,” Stone said. “I got a little role in ‘Crimes of the Heart,’ which was a straight play.” The school holds musicals every other year. Last year, it was time for a musical. “They gave us the songs we needed to learn to sing, and I decided to audition and signed up,” Stone said. “I made callbacks and learned another song. I wasn’t expected to get the lead role, and when I did, I was ecstatic. It was awesome. “I love to do it – perform in front of people. Singing and acting, it was a great experience.” The musical was a hit. “Everybody loved it,” Stone said. “We had a sold-out night every night for four nights. I had people come up after saying

they loved it so much they came back to see it. My dad (Chris) just went to one show and he asked me for more tickets to come again.” Where did he get his singing voice? “My dad has got a pretty booming voice, but he’s never gotten into the whole acting thing,” Stone said. “He’s got a deep, resonant voice. My grandpa was a singer. My mom (Stacey) doesn’t know where I got it from. “I love to sing. I’m in jazz groups here at school, the all men’s a cappella group. I qualified for all-state singing last year. I got a superior I at all-district.” Asked which is better – being on stage or the football field – Stone said, “It’s a different feeling for both. Nothing beats Friday nights, that’s for sure. Both have a different kind of anxiety about them. During the musical, you don’t want to mess up and forget lyrics or words. On the football field, you want to do your job correctly every play. You want to make the big plays. You don’t want to get injured. It’s a totally different mindset.” There was no football in his sophomore year. “There were multiple reasons I didn’t play,” Stone said. “It was a little bit of a hard time for me. I didn’t feel burned out, but I was so busy and my mind was on a lot of different things. I didn’t want to play if my heart wasn’t in it. When you’re heart’s not in it, you don’t have the motivation to

NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM PARKWAY NORTH, from page 32 do it. “I’m the kind of person who does not do things halfway. I want to do it to the best of my ability. That year, I didn’t feel like I would have been able to do that.” But busy as he was with his other activities, Stone discovered that he missed football. “That sophomore year was rough,” he said. “I would want to go see a game and I couldn’t go see a game. I missed it so much. I went to one Friday night game that year.” That started the fire back in him. “I just knew I had to get back into it,” Stone said. “It’s one of my biggest passions in life. Last year, my heart was definitely in it. I started off with the JV and worked hard to earn my varsity spot and keep it.” Bunton agreed. “He’s a very conscientious kid,” Bunton said. “He’s very mature beyond his years, to be honest. He’s hard on himself. He’s an enjoyable kid.” Stone’s main job with the Vikings is to stop the run. He is quick enough to get after the quarterback and drop him if he has the chance. “I think Jacob’s biggest characteristic is his passion,” Bunton said. “He’s a very emotional kid on the field. He’s not that way in the hallways or in school. He’s one of the nicest kids in school. On the field, he’s very emotional. He’s a real leader for us. He leads by example.” Stone agreed with that assessment. “I’m pretty quiet during school,” he said. “I don’t really say much, and that causes a lot of people call me a gentle giant. They see me as a nice, outgoing guy. On the football field, you have to turn it up a notch. That’s what I love about being on the field – being aggressive and getting after it.”


00% APY*

Semi-Annual 12 month Callable CD

The Vikings lost their first game this season to Saint Louis University High. “He calls me the Sunday after that first loss on Friday night,” Bunton said. “He was asking me how to be a better captain for the team. I’ve had a couple of kids do in that in my 29 years of coaching. It’s rare. That makes you smile when it happens. I just told him that No. 1, be yourself. You don’t need to try and be a captain. It doesn’t have a definition. The kids voted you for the position, and that’s your respect faction. Always be positive. No kid wants to be told or coached by another kid. And Jacob knows that.” Stone said he looks forward to opponents running the ball his way. He likes to chase down the quarterback like a lion does a gazelle. “I love getting sacks and bull rushing through the offensive line and hitting the quarterback,” Stone said. “I got to rely on the other guys and trust the guys next to me. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be able to do anything. I love to cause disruption.” Stone started last year’s season at 215 pounds. He worked hard in the off-season and gained weight. “I wanted to be more successful on the line,” Stone said. “I needed a bigger body.” Stone said he wants to play college football, and schools are showing interest. He went to a camp at Illinois State and Eastern Illinois and is interested also in Murray State and Eastern Kentucky. He will not be majoring in music or theater. “I’ve found I enjoy broadcast journalism,” Stone said. “I like speaking in front of people. I’ve found a new interest in broadcasting. That’s something I’ll look into.”

I’m excited to see what themes and what kind of creativity will be used this year.” The winner of the competition will be awarded a $500 prize. “I can’t tell which teams are competing because that’s part of the mystery, and the tasks are part of the surprise,” Frank Schmer, event coordinator for the Bash, said. “Whoever makes it back to the Dean Team Subaru booth the quickest is our first Dean Team Subaru champion.”

To watch teams of three devour 61 smoked chicken wings in as little time as possible is enough reason to make an appearance at 9 p.m. on Sat., Sept. 25 on the main stage at this year’s BBQ Bash. Highway 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen is holding a contest to see what team can finish all 61 chicken wings the fastest. It might not be so bad, except half of the wings will include the restaurant’s brand new hot sauce, the “Louisiana Lucifer.” “They have just the right amount of heat, not too hot but sweet at the same time,” Bill Kunz, owner of Highway 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen, said. “It’s a secret ancient recipe that is brand new. You don’t think it’s hot, and then bang – ‘Lucifer’ hits you.” The other half of the wings will be the restaurant’s famous, smoked wings. This year will be the first for Highway 61’s chicken wing-eating contest, and the restaurant is excited to watch the turnout. First place winners will get four tickets to a Blues or Rams game and a $100 gift certificate to Highway 61 Roadhouse, “so they can have chicken wings before they go to the game,” Kunz said.

Steve “The Bambino” and “Big Carla” with Highway 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen’s smoked wings.

Highway 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen is still looking for teams to take part in the contest. Overall, they are expecting 10 teams to participate. Guests can enter the contest by calling the restaurant at (314) 968-0061. “I’m expecting a lot of new customers for our great smoked chicken wings and a lot of full bellies,” Kunz said. “It should be good.”

Depending on the number of contestants, entries will be limited to 20 entries per age category if necessary. • Winners will be determined by the number of tickets (one ticket equals one vote) collected in containers located with each contestant’s displayed coloring page. • Tickets can be purchased for $1 in advance at the Electro Savings Credit Union in Wildwood or at the Electro Savings Credit Union booth on Sat., Sept. 25. • Voting will close at 6 p.m. on Sat., Sept. 25.

#1 State Certified Backflow Tester


By SARAH WILSON Nonstop founders Michael Zpevak, rhythm/lead guitarist, and Scott Rismiller, trombonist, dreamed of forming a 10-piece classic rock band that could literally perform any classic rock song ever recorded. Their dream came true. The band’s name describes the group perfectly – Nonstop has the ability to play all night long without any break between songs. Their record, so far, is performing 13 full songs in a row, but that number has the potential to grow.

“There’s not a classic rock song we can’t do, partly because of the talent, but also because of our configuration,” Zpevak said. “That’s why we use horns – real horns, not synthetic horns – both male and female lead singers, and two lead guitarists instead of one.” At the BBQ Bash, Nonstop will perform a 15-song tribute to commemorate the city of Wildwood’s 15th anniversary. The concert will consist of music the band calls “show music.” Nonstop performs live from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sun., Sept. 26.



BBQ Bash to name ‘Iron Chef’ Based on the Food Network’s hit television cooking game show, “Iron Chef,” an American adaptation of the Japanese sensation, the BBQ Bash will be throwing its own Iron Chef competition on Sat., Sept. 25. The event is sponsored by PNC Bank. Contestants already have been selected at random. At the start of the game, a mystery basket containing secret ingredients will be delivered to each contestant. Teams will have two hours to “battle” against once another to create the perfect dish, which will later be served to six VIP judges. Judges will base their criteria on the plate’s presentation, tenderness of the meat, how unique the barbecue sauce is,

its level of tanginess, and its overall taste. Alton Brown, host of the real “Iron Chef,” will not be in attendance, but among the judges are local media personalities Frank Cusumano and McGraw Milhaven. In the past couple of years, Cusumano has become an avid restaurant critic. His family’s restaurant, Kemoll’s, has enhanced his knowledge of food and increased his standards for quality. “After sports, religion and my family, food is the most important thing in my life, “ Cusumano said. “I’m not going to pass up the chance to taste the best barbecue in the world.”

You be the judge For the People’s Choice Competition, there are no trained judges, and guests get the opportunity to determine the best of the Bash. Twenty randomly selected teams will have two pork butts delivered to their booth at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Teams will have until 9 a.m. on Sunday to get creative and prepare the best possible dish. The Missouri Pork Association is donating the meat.

Guests are encouraged to come with a full appetite and to try each recipe. Tickets will be available to purchase for each booth, and guests will be allowed to visit the different booths to sample each team’s prepared dish and then vote for their favorite. Boxes representing each of the teams will be located by the stage for guests to cast their vote for favorite dish.

‘Make Your Mark’ mural project postponed By SHEILA FRAYNE RHOADES Due to construction timing on the floodwall, the Chesterfield Arts’ “Make Your Mark” community mural painting project originally scheduled to take place on Oct. 9 has been postponed. The project now life is slated to occur Shelter makes insurance sometime in the spring of 2011, most a walk in the park likely in late April/early May or in early June, Chesterfield Arts Executive Director Stacey Morse said. “Weather is always a factor with any outdoor project, so we will determine an event rain date as well,” Morse said. The city of Chesterfield recently approved funding for a 600-foot long mural on the new floodwall near the intersection of Edison Blvd. and Baxter Road in Chesterfield. A team of 58 West County students entering grades 8-12 since July has been planning and designing the

mural, which the public will be invited to paint. While the delay of the painting project is a disappointment, Morse said that the student team realizes that the new timeframe has opened up some positive opportunities in terms of marketing, fund development and community engagement. “We will be using the next five weeks to finalize the mural design, and continue with our planning for marketing, event planning and fundraising from now through spring,” Morse said. Revised plans call for continuation of the project in two phases. This fall, students will complete the mural design and do some additional planning for the spring painting project. Next spring, students will prep the wall, work on the design layout, and the “Make Your Mark” event will take place, Morse said.

Equine assisted therapy volunteers needed By Diane Plattner Riding a horse may seem like all fun and games, but it also provides vital therapy to participants of a successful area program that is in need of more volunteers. Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) is a non-profit organization that provides horse-riding therapy to participants with mental and physical disabilities. Physical benefits, organizers said, include improved respiration, circulation, balance, body metabolism, muscle strength and agility, and psychosocial benefits are improved self-esteem, self-image and interpersonal skills. While on a horse, participants are able to leave the bonds of their disabilities, thereby setting them free, organizers and volunteers say. “The determination and courage these children and adults have to make it through everyday life absolutely humbles me,” Cheryl Barnett said. “Then to see those beautiful smiles of joy over riding a horse makes my day. You cannot have a bad day when you have volunteered with Equine Therapy. It makes you count your blessings and really focus on how precious life is.” The program was founded by Program Director Ginni Hartke, who about 10 years ago saw a therapeutic riding program on Animal Planet that explained the benefits of riding a horse. As a registered nurse and longtime horse enthusiast, Hartke wanted to share with children struggling with disabilities the joy of riding a horse. She began the work of starting a program, which was incorporated in October 2003. Now in its seventh year, the EAT program has about 275 students and has expanded from its two locations in Robertsville and Town & Country to a third in Wildwood. While the program lists about 300 trained volunteers, about 80 volunteers actually carry the weekly load, EAT

President Gary Hartke said. He said they need a maximum of three volunteers per rider – one to lead the horse and two sidewalkers to lend support to the rider. “You may think you need to know something about horses but you don’t,” Gary Hartke said. “We have designed our training to give you some hands-on knowledge about horses. But some of our volunteers just want to help the children, and others only want to lead and work with the horse.” Individuals aged 14 and older can be trained to help the riders in the program. The training includes volunteer expectations as well as tacking and grooming a horse. “This is a great way for our younger people to get their community service hours for school,” he said. “We have had several young men and women from area high schools lend their support to keep things running.” EAT volunteers said they love helping with the program for various reasons. “It’s hot, tiring, and sometimes muddy, but at the end of my shift, I feel energized by the children’s smiles,” Bob Manges, a retired elementary school principal, said. “The reward of watching children learn and grow both physically and mentally is extraordinary.” Volunteer Vicki Vogt finds satisfaction also. “I was looking for a volunteer program with kids,” Vogt said. “I was so excited to find one with kids and horses – it makes me feel complete. One cannot help but form an attachment to riders. I look forward to each week to see their progress, not only in riding but with their disabilities. It makes us feel that we have made a difference in a world that needs some attention.” For more information, visit

ROY BLUNT, from page 20

was involved in passing key legislation on taxes and energy policy. He is a big proponent of the border fence south of San Diego. “There should be one (fence) along the whole border,” Blunt said, “but this one in California was incomplete because these environmentalists were concerned about this rare desert shrub. Of course, this plant was getting beat to death with all of the people stepping on it to illegally get into the country. I don’t support amnesty or a path to citizenship for people that broke the law. They need to get back in line behind all the people in their countries of origin who are doing the right thing to come to America legally.” He supports the Arizona immigration law but said it is unfortunate that the state has to take that step. “Requiring immigrants to carry papers is a federal law,” Blunt said, “and the federal government should enforce their own laws.” Blunt’s decision in 2008 to back Bush’s TARP plan has drawn criticism from the Carnahan campaign, which has taken to calling him “Bailout Roy Blunt.” “The bailout I voted for was a short term investment in the economy that has been




NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM paid back,” Blunt said. “When she criticizes me, she counts on people not understanding this. In Santa Fe, N.M., she was asked how she would have voted on the same bailout I voted for, and she said that it was a necessary step. Of course, when she’s actually in this state, she gives a whole different answer. I’ve always said the same thing about this. The government invested in financial institutions to ensure that they could give credit and loans to businesses, and that money has been paid back. Two bad things happened around the bailout. One was that the media widely reported that we were simply handing these banks money, which wasn’t true. We were investing. The second was that Obama compared it to the kind of deficit spending that he has engaged in, but it wasn’t. What I voted for created stability in a rough economy, and it made the taxpayers money.” His opponent has pointed also to campaign donations Blunt received from oil companies as a sign he is not in touch with Americans. “I think people donate to my campaign based on the kind of principles I have and the way that they think I’m going to vote,” Blunt said. “I influence their choice to donate to me, not the other way around. … To say that oil companies are funding my campaign is a misrepresentation. The money might come from employees of a








particular company, but it’s not the company itself.” Blunt cited a speech Obama gave in Kansas City, urging support for Carnahan because she would support his economic agenda. “He raised $500,000 from Missouri Democrats for her campaign with what he said, so I think it’s fair for us to point out that he said it,” Blunt explained. “That is why we’ll put that in commercials. She is for his agenda and I am not.” Blunt said the President’s agenda has been dangerous. “He has minimized threats from our real enemies,” Blunt said. “Like the Christmas bomber, who had to be tackled by regular civilians on an airplane. (U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security) Janet Napolitano claimed that as an example of the system working. The system let that guy on the plane. It had nothing to do with what happened. Then this Times Square bomber – they came out and immediately said that he worked alone. Well, it came out later that he had corresponded with and received training from Al-Qaeda. This administration has hurt us with our allies and also hurt us financially with a stimulus package and a health care bill, neither of which we can afford.” Despite his objections to Obama, Blunt has struggled to win the support of the Tea






Party movement, some of whom voted for his opponent Chuck Purgason in the recent Republican primaries. “The Tea Party has some strong benefits,” Blunt said. “They have put the focus of the media on government spending. I have led the fight in Congress to cut mandatory government spending programs by $40 million, so I know how embarrassed people are that the government spends the money that it does without thinking. But, you know, whenever I have voted to reduce government spending in one area or another, no one has called my office and thanked me. That’s not something we get letters about.” Blunt feels privileged to be in the position to replace one of his biggest mentors over the years. “I am pleased to have (Bond’s) help. I have enjoyed working with him on making this a better state,” Blunt said. Blunt said he hopes he and Carnahan will engage in at least one debate before the election. He refused to predict specific gains Republicans might make this year in Congress, only saying, “I think the Republicans will make gains sufficient enough to stop this country’s dramatic move to the left. On election day, we all have the opportunity to get this country back to where it needs to be, and, in that, Missouri has some of the loudest votes in the country.”

West Newsmagazine celebrates 15 years of service to our community

Entering our 15th year, one thing is certain...

We’ve got issues

“We’ve got issues” is a quip that occasionally is heard around the offices of West Newsmagazine. As the paper embarks on its 15th year of publication, a look back at the 400-plus stories that were run on our covers revealed that over the years, the West County community has had its fair share of issues, too. Here is a look at some of our most memorable – and in some cases most controversial – cover stories. Nov. 6, 1996 “The Maturation of a City” Wildwood city officials had proposed a Town Center concept designed to organize and regulate a small-town, local community development in the heart of Wildwood. More than a few residents were outraged, particularly those who owned residential properties in the area designated for development. In their zeal to preserve their neighborhoods’ green space and pastoral character, opponents of the plan took their fight to City Hall. Jan. 22, 1997 “TAG You’re It” The story that (arguably) inspired the most controversy in the paper’s history documented the effects of Rockwood School District’s TAG (Talented and Gifted) program on students not labeled talented or gifted. “Twenty-four hours after it was published, I was in the office of the Rockwood superintendent, getting an earful,” Publisher Doug Huber said. “Lots of people were really upset about it, but it was a good story.” April 2, 1997 “Is Recycling a Bad Bargain?” Curbside recycling had caught on in the Midwest, and some West County municipalities had begun providing and charging for it whether residents wanted it or not. Advocates of curbside recycling called it an investment in the future; opponents claimed it cost municipalities too much money, and due to transportation and energy costs, was more damaging than beneficial to the environment. Jan. 14, 1998 “Producing More Guilt” In late 1997, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) issued a recommendation that women should breast-feed their babies for a full year or longer, a practice which many working women found extremely burdensome, if not impossible. The National Organization for Women (NOW) urged businesses to allow women to pump breast milk at regular intervals during the workday. A prominent West County pediatrician stated the AAP was “out of touch with reality on modern motherhood” and that the recommendation was “just another way for American mothers to feel inadequate.” Oct. 20, 1999 “Protecting Our Future” In the wake of high-profile incidents of school violence across the country, including the Columbine shootings in Littleton, Colo., parents for the first time in history feared for their children’s safety at school. West Newsmagazine, to inform the community about local efforts to prevent a similar tragedy in West County, presented a special issue on the prevention of violence in schools. March 22, 2000 “An Exhausting New Program?” The Gateway Clean Air Program was about to get underway, changing the way automobile emissions tests were conducted in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

SEPTEMBER 15, 2010Amant West Restore Ad (7-09) greener WEST NEWSMAGAZINE


Reflections from the publisher By BRIAN MCDOWELL West Newsmagazine’s publisher tries to make it a standard rule not to talk on record to the press. He gets annoyed when a photograph of him is slipped into an issue of the publication he started in 1996. He is more comfortable doing his work in anonymity. Not surprisingly, he tried to brush off the initial request for an interview for this issue by saying, “I deserve very little credit for this whole thing. It should go to the people that put their heart and soul into this throughout the years. We have a great staff. There are four people in the office- Vicky Czapla, Joe and Erica Ritter, and of course, my wife, Sharon- that have been here since day one. It’s people like that who deserve credit.” Nonetheless, as West Newsmagazine begins its 15th year of publication, there is no one better qualified than Doug Huber to discuss how the paper and the area it covers has changed over the years. Huber likes to say that he grew up on the “mean streets of Chesterfield.” He has lived in the area since the early 1960s and remembers when it was farmland. During his childhood, Olive was a two-lane road, and the closest gas station to Chesterfield was at the intersection of Olive and Ballas. Huber graduated from Parkway Central High School in 1970. He attended Saint Louis University, then spent 25 years in radio, running a local station and owning and operating the Broadcast Center. “I really started West out of a need for something else to do,” Huber said. “We used to have this community paper delivered to our home called The West Countian. I would look at this paper and read most of it. I thought they had a good idea, and I realized I could put together a group of professionals and probably compete with them.” Huber said the road to success was decidedly bumpy. “My original goal was to survive the first year,” he said. “Two issues into it, I just hoped we’d make it to the next issue. It took a few years to start breaking even. But I kept it going, because I knew that we could become the paper of record in West County, and we have.” Huber remembers his mother

Sessions Starting! coming into his office when the paper first was getting started and saying, “I always knew that you would end up running a paper. You’ve had an opinion on everything your entire life.” Huber thinks one of the keys to West’s success is the success of the community it serves. “Now that people have moved even further west, the center of the St. Louis area really moved west,” Huber said. “It is a terrific marketplace for something like this because there are a lot of hard-working and successful homeowners – the kinds of people that are the best America has to offer. West County is a success story all around.” Huber said the paper attracts the best local advertisers because just like West has had to compete with the PostDispatch and the Suburban Journals, local businesses have had to compete with places like Wal-Mart and Home Depot. “We have that common bond,” Huber said. Huber is just now realizing the impact of his paper on West County. “People know who we are now, and we are a voice in the community,” he said. “We have provided a tremendous amount of information that has helped people in their lives, and this community has provided us with a tremendous amount of support.” The 15th anniversary has Huber thinking about the future of the publication. “Doing this, I’ve seen good times and bad times, but I do think there are better times ahead,” he said. “That doesn’t mean we don’t have challenges, but people will always be interested in news about their communities and schools, and West will still be around to do that.” Despite running a successful venture for 15 years, Huber realizes his paper is only as good as its next issue.

NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM emissions testing stations were part of a law requiring St. Louis to implement a plan to meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) federal clean air standards. Some believed the new procedure would prevent Missouri from losing federal transportation funds; others argued that it was “exhausting and unnecessary.” Aug. 23, 2000 “Keeping Up Appearances” Even before the recent economic recession, there were “house poor” families in West County. Volunteers and social workers provided West Newsmagazine readers a glimpse of what was going on behind closed doors at homes in some of the area’s wealthiest neighborhoods. Many readers were surprised at the number of West County families that seemed wealthy but struggled to pay their creditors and feed themselves and their children. Sept. 5, 2001 “Rough Road Ahead” Construction plans for Hwy. 141 north of Ladue Road made for a hot topic. On Aug. 25, 2001, more than 500 people attended a public forum in Chesterfield to offer their input on improvements to the area. The topic ignited emotions of nearby residents who cited concerns over property values, air quality and safety. Oct. 3, 2001 “The Calm After the Storm” The events of Sept. 11, 2001 united the nation, and when the call for help went out, the people of West County showed their true colors. Area residents, business owners, schools, churches and charitable organizations responded to the nation’s tragedy with an outpouring of spirit and patriotism. Across West County, flags flew, banners of support and encouragement were hung, black ribbon adorned fire departments, and jars placed on the counters of local businesses brimmed with donations.

city’s deer relocation program, leaving two legal options: trap and euthanize the animals, or do nothing. Emotions ran high on both sides of the issue, and most of those concerned felt that a resolution would not be reached at any time in the foreseeable future. July 23, 2003 “Resurrecting the Valley” Ten years after the Great Flood of 1993 took a brutal toll on nine Midwestern states, many communities along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers remained vacated, but the city of Chesterfield bucked the trend. A 500-year levee and tax increment financing (TIF) authority were pivotal to developing the Chesterfield Valley into a booming center of retail and industrial activity. Before the flood, 4,400 people had fulltime jobs in Chesterfield Valley; by March 2002, the number had risen to 8,000. Sept. 7, 2005 “Wildwood Progress – 10 Years Later” A decade after the first Wildwood City Council meeting, the city continued to face growing pains resulting from one faction of residents favoring more green space and another favoring faster progress. Significant progress had been made in fulfilling the city’s Master Plan; Town Center was under development, 10 miles of multipleuse trails had been constructed, and the population had more than doubled. A contentious issue, however, was what to do about Hwy. 109; some wanted it to remain the same, and others favored expanding the roadway and connecting I-44 to Hwy. 40. April 11, 2007 “Breaking the Bank” Homeowners were hopping mad when their property reassessment notices arrived in the mailbox. According to the St. Louis County Assessor’s office, the median value of homes in St. Louis County had increased an average of 22 percent in a two-year period. The Rockwood School District had St. Louis County’s third highest median residential value of $274,000 – a 23 percent increase – while Parkway ranked fourth at $247,600 – a 21 percent increase.

May 7, 2008 “Best Mother’s Day Ever” The story was a feel-good follow-up to “Waiting for a Miracle,” the April 4, 2001 West Newsmagazine cover story about Eureka siblings Alex and Matt Pearl, who suffer from a rare blood disorder that can be fatal. The children’s mother, Diane Pearl, on Mother’s Day 2008 was able to Jan. 9, 2002 meet for the first time the two bone marrow “Population Boom” The Town & Country deer population donors – one from Stockholm, Sweden, fight was back in the news. The Missouri and the other from North Carolina – who Department of Conservation had halted the saved her children’s lives.

My, how time flies A ‘then and now’ look at the last 15 years By SARAH WILSON The country has come a long way since West Newsmagazine’s origin 15 years ago. Before the advent of Facebook, reality television and “Supersize” menus (which already have come and gone), 1996 was a major political year with many technological advances. Here is a look back to a time when we knew how to live without cell phones: U.S. President: William Jefferson Clinton U.S. Vice President: Albert Gore, Jr. Academy Award Best Picture: “The English Patient” Grammy Award Song of the Year: “Kiss from a Rose,” by Seal World Series: New York Yankees def. Atlanta Braves (4-2) Super Bowl XXX: Dallas Cowboys def. Pittsburgh Steelers (27-17) Popular TV shows: “E.R.,” “Seinfeld,” “Friends” and “Suddenly Susan”

Prices and populations are not the only things that have inflated over the years; American portion sizes have increased as well. A cheeseburger used to average 330 calories; today it averages 590 calories. A bagel used to average 140 calories, and today it averages 350 calories. The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute has attributed many of the nation’s obesity problems to this pattern. ••• It did not matter whether someone was 2 or 62, the infamous Tickle Me Elmo in 1996 was a must-have toy. Elmo giggled and talked when his tummy was pressed, and parents actually fought to obtain one after stores quickly sold out of them. Another popular children’s fad was the Tamagotchi, a handheld, digital pet requiring care, much like a real pet. ••• Chin-length, straight hair with layered curls shaping the face describes “The Rachel” haircut, inspired by Jennifer Aniston’s character on the then-hit television show, “Friends.” The hairstyle sparked in popularity in 1996 as women around the country tried to replicate the look.

National debt: 1996: $5.4 trillion • 2010: $13.4 trillion U.S. postage stamp: 1996: 32 cents • 2010: 44 cents Loaf of bread: 1996: $1.15 • 2010: $2.16 Average cost of new car: 1996: $16,300 • 2010: $21,081 Minimum wage: 1996: $5.15 • 2010: $7.25 Gallon of gas: 1996: $1.22 • 2010: $2.76 U.S. population: 1996: 265 million • 2010: 310 million ••• Mid-‘90s fashion was marked by grunge and goth trends. Cut-off jeans, halter tops and belly-button piercings were at the center of women’s fashion, and baggy pants took over men’s wardrobes. ••• Things have changed around West County as well since 1996. Boone’s Crossing in Chesterfield Valley was a flooded field. Everybody had a 314 area code; 636 was not put into service until 2000. Hwy. 141 was still called Woods Mill Rd. and I-64 was just little, old Hwy. 40. The Butterfly House did not open until 1998. ••• Memorable events that occurred in 1996: • Bob Dole swept the Republican primaries. • Bill Clinton was re-elected for his second term as U.S. president. • Madeline Albright was elected the first female U.S. secretary of state. • Trans World Airlines (TWA) Flight 800 exploded and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on July 17, killing everyone onboard. • American jazz and song vocalist Ella Fitzgerald died on June 15. • American rapper Tupac Shakur was shot and killed on Sept. 13.

Seems like Washington has a bureau for everything. The most important one right now is the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) which announced that the growth of the gross domestic product (GDP) in the second quarter went down from 2.4% to 1.6% percent. What that means in laymen’s terms is that there is now a greater possibility of the economy suffering a doubledip recession, although most economists continue to believe that this won’t happen. Hardest hit is new home construction. Traditionally, housing has been the engine that pulls the economy back on track. Locally, the phones continue to ring at Gershman Mortgage where borrowers can still get an adjustable rate loan at 3.25%. The national average rate for a 30-year fixed loan was still a friendly 4.35% last week. These record low rates and falling home prices have made housing more affordable than 20 or 30 years, but this good news has had little effect on sales. Then has housing hit the wall? Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan called it “a typical pause that occurs in an economic recovery” and the National Association of Home Builders actually expects household wealth to trend up gradually over the balance of 2010 into 2011. Helping is the fact that consumer debt like credit cards has been going down since the end of 2008 and is at levels last seen at the end of 2000. But employment stability and job growth are the keys to a housing recovery. In addition to alleviating workers’ fears about losing their next paycheck, an improving employment picture will help boost the confidence of households that are considering buying a home. The bottom line, though - and you’ve heard it before - right now really is the ideal time to buy a new home. Here’s what else is happening: Thomas & Suit Homes, whose Wyndgate Forest keeps drawing rave reviews from buyers, is now expanding to Sommers Landing and the Enclave at Sommers Pointe, both on Highway N just south of Highway 40. Prices start in the $270’s. According to CFO and Partner Brenda Suit, “We want as many buyers as possible to enjoy the experience of becoming Thomas & Suit homeowners. With the Sommers openings, Thomas & Suit is introducing six new floor plans ranging from 1,800 to more than 3,300 square feet. Or, if you prefer, Thomas & Suit will build any home from its extensive design portfolio currently being built at

Wyndgate Forest. One of the new models called the Alberta is under construction at the Enclave at Sommers Pointe. The 2,225-square-foot great room design features a private master suite away from other two bedrooms, hearth room and even an “Electronic Drop Zone” an area directly off the garage with spots for charging laptops and cell phones. Thomas & Suit has homesites available at Wyndgate Forest in O’Fallon, Sommers Landing and the Enclave at Sommers Pointe in Lake St. Louis, and Boulder Ridge in Wentzville. The sales office for all three communities is located at Wyndgate Forest. Visit www., or call 636-561-2120. To reach the central sales office at Wyndgate Forest take Highway 40 to south on Highway N 1.5 miles. McKelvey Homes’ success during the worst recession in our country’s history made it the subject of a feature article this month in Nation’s Building News, the online weekly newspaper of the National Association of Home Builders. McKelvey is the only local builder able to increase its home sales in 2009, an achievement that President Jim Brennan attributes to conservative business practices, an established reputation for quality and the ability to adapt quickly to changing demand. “McKelvey is now on track to double its home sales this year and make significant headway in digging out of the worst housing downturn in generations,” the article stated. Because of this, McKelvey has been able to build and offer a large selection of “Designer Market Homes” for buyers who can take advantage of today’s low interest rates. McKelvey is celebrating a “grand opening weekend” with new displays at four communities. Check out the ad in this edition of Prime New Homes. Still celebrating its 40th birthday, Greater Missouri Builders is offering savings up to $75,000 on inventory homes and a whopping $99,000 on a former display, reports Sales Manager Kim Whalen. At Fountain Plaza in Ellisville, GMB has a 2,000-square-foot ranch with two bedrooms, two baths, a gourmet kitchen and hearth room with see-through fireplace for $420,000, a savings of $74,478. Call 314581-5944 for information about it and other inventory homes. GMB also is celebrating the grand opening of Grover Crossing is opening this Sunday, Sept. 19.  The community is near Wildwood and its Town Center at Manchester and Brown roads.

68 I  Wildwood Pub & Grill reflects owner’s passions SEPTEMBER 15, 2010 WEST NEWSMAGAZINE

By SUZANNE CORBETT Jeff Allee loves golf, good food and drink. When he brought those passions together, the result was the Wildwood Pub & Grill and The Links. Formerly named Brickhouse Pub, Wildwood Pub & Grill, located off Hwy. 109 on New College Avenue behind St. Louis Community College’s Wildwood campus, houses a full-service, family friendly pub atmosphere and the area’s only indoor golf range, The Links. The Links features PGA simulators programmed with 55 championship courses and a driving range. It is not to be confused with a Wii but is the real McCoy, as simulators are played with full size golf balls and clubs. The machine even provides course sound effects. Players simply select the course program, address the ball and swing to play the entire course or just practice their swing. “Playing on these simulators is a lot of fun,” said Allee, who plans to demonstrate the simulators during this year’s St. Louis Home Fires BBQ Bash. “It’s a great way to introduce people to the golf simulators, which has allowed us to offer something different from other establishments.” The Links at the Wildwood Pub & Grill is housed near

the bar area and features comfortable seating and plenty of tabletops for enjoying the full menu and bar. “It’s a great space for a group of guys or gals to come and enjoy adult libations, conversation and a round of golf,” Allee said. In the dining room, sports action is broadcast on flat-screen TVs, and inviting seating encourages family dining. “We’re a popular stop for families after high school (football) games,” said Allee, who actively supports the area’s high schools with fundraising efforts through the national Renaissance program that encourages students to strive for excellence. Excellence also is Allee’s personal goal when it comes to creating a winning menu and bar that offers a diversity of The Links and bar area at Wildwood Pub & Grill. flavors and choices.
