A return to Keynes? The nomination of Janet Yellen to become head of the Federal Reserve System has set off a flurry of media stories. Since she will be the first woman to occupy that position, we can only hope that this will not mean that any criticism of what she does will be attributed to sex bias or to a “war on women.” The Federal Reserve has become such a major player in the American economy that it needs far more scrutiny and criticism than it has received, regardless of who heads it. Yellen, a former professor of economics at Berkeley, has openly proclaimed her views on economic policy, and those views deserve very careful scrutiny. She asks, “Will capitalist economies operate at full employment in the absence of routine intervention?” And she answers, “Certainly not.” Yellen represents the Keynesian economics that once dominated economic theory and policy like a national religion – until it encountered two things: Milton Friedman and the stagflation of the 1970s. At the height of the Keynesian influence, it was widely believed that government policy-makers could choose a judicious tradeoff between the inflation rate and the rate of unemployment. This trade-off was called the Phillips Curve, in honor of an economist at the London School of Economics. Prof. Milton Friedman of the University of Chicago attacked the Phillips Curve, both theoretically and empirically. When Friedman received the Nobel Prize in economics – the first of many to go to Chicago economists, who were the primary critics of Keynesian economics – it seemed as if the idea of a trade-off between the inflation rate and the unemployment rate might be laid to rest. The ultimate discrediting of this Phillips Curve theory was the rising inflation and unemployment, at the same time in the 1970s, in what came to be called “stagflation” – a combination of rising inflation and a stagnant economy with high unemployment. Nevertheless, the Keynesian economists have staged a political comeback during the Obama administration. Yellen’s nomination to head the Federal Reserve is the crowning example of that comeback. Yellen asks, “Do policy-makers have the knowledge and ability to improve macroeconomic outcomes rather than making

matters worse?” And she answers, “Yes.” The former economics professor is certainly asking the right questions – and giving the wrong answers. Her first question, whether free market economies can achieve full employment without government intervention, is a purely factual question that can be answered from history. For the first 150 years of the United States, there was no policy of federal intervention when the economy turned down. No depression during all that time was as catastrophic as the Great Depression of the 1930s, when both the Federal Reserve System and Presidents Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt intervened in the economy on a massive and unprecedented scale. Despite the myth that it was the stock market crash of 1929 that caused the double-digit unemployment of the 1930s, unemployment never reached double digits in any of the 12 months that followed the 1929 stock market crash. Unemployment peaked at 9 percent in December 1929 and was back down to 6.3 percent by June 1930, when the first major federal intervention took place under Herbert Hoover. The unemployment decline then reversed, rising to hit double digits six months later. As Hoover and then FDR continued to intervene, double-digit unemployment persisted throughout the remainder of the 1930s. Conversely, when President Warren G. Harding faced an annual unemployment rate of 11.7 percent in 1921, he did absolutely nothing, except for cutting government spending. Keynesian economists would say that this was exactly the wrong thing to do. History, however, says that unemployment the following year went down to 6.7 percent – and, in the year after that, 2.4 percent. Under Calvin Coolidge, the ultimate in non-interventionist government, the annual unemployment rate got down to 1.8 percent. How does the track record of Keynesian intervention compare to that?

From In addition to the letters printed here, “Who shut down the government” received many comments online, including the following: “Here’s the problem: The House took this stance knowing full well that neither the Senate nor the president would agree to it. It’s just as much the Senate’s right to refuse to approve a bill that doesn’t fund all of the government or the president’s right to refuse to sign such a bill as it is the House’s right to refuse to fund the entire government. Given that fact, the House’s actions are irresponsible, reckless, and dangerous to our country. If they want to change the law, if they want to defund the ACA (Affordable Care Act), then they need to win elections, not play chicken with our future.” – Matt “Nice try at spinning there! Yes, all spending must be authorized by Congress except in very narrow emergency situations. But his characterization of what occurred is wrong. The ACA was self-funded, meaning the law intentionally bypassed the annual budget/ appropriation process; instead needed funds are authorized by the law itself. So Congress made a specific decision in passing that law to fund it in that fashion. This article implies that it was an unfunded bill waiting for an appropriation, as is typically the case. Not so, which is why the bill they passed on Sept. 30 actually reversed the funding that was already in place ‘defunding’ Obamacare.” – Eric Riback “I consider myself an independent and have voted Democrat more than Republican, but even I know what Obama is doing is wrong. It is not a dictatorship and the way our system works is that politicians have to work together to compromise and reach solutions. Instead, Obama sits on his throne with his nose in the air sniffing his righteousness. Did he not get the memo there are two other branches to the government? And they have offered to negotiate but Obama remains obtuse. By the way, every single person I have talked is now paying twice to four times as much for their health care than they were before it became “affordable.” – L.P.




The government goes lean In software development, there is a relatively new movement to support something called “lean development.” The concept is pretty simple and pretty cool, and it makes a ton of sense for consumer-driven software products. At its core, lean development stresses that it is best to get a product out to the marketplace as quickly as possible in order to get feedback from customers on what is broken, what they like, what they hate, and so forth. Developers call this the “minimum viable product,” and for the most part, it is an elegant way to make sure that they are building the product customers want as quickly and cheaply as possible. Apparently, a month ago, the federal government – namely the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) – unveiled its version of a minimum viable product in the form of the Affordable Care Act’s mandated health insurance exchanges. The launch of the exchanges was, to put it mildly, a mess. There were crashes, delays, error messages, and even complete lockouts. In response – and with a nod to the coolest product developer out there – HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that she hoped that the country would grant HHS “the same slack they give Apple.” After all, she noted, Apple does have “a few more resources” than her department. Ahem. Well, Sec. Sebelius, the real problem, or at least one of the problems, is that you are no Steve Jobs. Now, this might be a good place to point out some of the differences between a new app for your phone that lets you mix and match different colored candy and a federal law, punishable by fines levied from the Internal Revenue Service, and mandated for use by the president of the United States himself. Actually, that might be all that needs pointing out. One thing is a federal law. The other thing is a video game that you play on your phone. Most people will be intelligent enough to understand the differences all on their own. Those two things might require different operational protocols, it would seem. Let it not be forgotten, however, that Sec. Sebelius also seems envious of Apple’s product development resources. Alright, well, Apple is a very successful company with significant cash reserves. Agreed. They are rich, but they are not federal government kind of rich. According to reports, Apple spent about $150 million developing the first iPhone, which was a revolutionary product that first put an entire computer into a phone. It was pretty popular as well. Also according to reports, HHS has spent somewhere in the neighborhood of a half billion dollars

– more than triple what Apple paid for the iPhone – to build a website! The most insidious part of all this, however, is not really the botched development project. This is not about website crashes, inefficient and over-budget government projects, or laughingly bad operational execution. No, we have come to expect this on nearly every federal project, so the “how” of this is almost irrelevant. The insidiousness becomes evident if we stop and ask ourselves, “Why?” Why is this website for health insurance exchanges failing so miserably? One needn’t be a web designer to understand that a simple site where people can view and purchase products really should not be a major undertaking in this day and age. Unless, of course, politicians choose to make it a major undertaking for very, very political reasons. You see, if the goal of this exchange was to allow a potential customer to enter the site and browse real health insurance prices available in their exchange, the site would be simple and would be working today. This is how a company would do it. This is how Apple would do it. They would let you see the full price of a product, make a decision to buy, and then allow you to enter your payment information and see if you qualify for any discounts. That is not how the Obamacare website works. It actually works in exactly the opposite way. The first thing a potential customer is required to do upon visiting this site is to enter their payment information, if you will. This is very sensitive information including a Social Security number, full name and date of birth. The system then is required to verify that information and ascertain any subsidies that the user would receive, if the user qualifies at all. Only after that point, assuming the site hasn’t crashed, can the user see the price of the insurance plans available, postsubsidy. In other words, the site is specifically designed to thwart transparency. It is designed to hide the true, underlying cost of the products that are being purchased. It is designed to withhold information from the American people. Read that last line again. A low-cost, private health care marketplace available to all Americans is a good thing. A system that enables every American who is reasonably able to cover the cost of his or her own health and wellbeing is a good thing. Hopefully, Apple can build that product for us one day, because President Obama and the federal government certainly have not.

Bridge improvements coming to Schoettler Road

Action has been taken to begin the renovation process of the Schoettler Road bridge currently spanning the Creve Coeur Creek in Chesterfield. However, actual construction is still a ways off. At a City Council meeting on Oct. 7, councilmembers passed a bill authorizing City Manager Mike Herring to execute an

agreement with the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission for the purposes of replacing the Schoettler bridge. According to Herring, the size of the bridge is not sufficient to accommodate the traffic flow on Schoettler Road. “It’s an old style design bridge, very narrow (and) barely allows two cars to pass simultaneously,” Herring said. The planning and design for the bridge renovations are currently scheduled for 2015, with construction following by 2017. How the construction will affect traffic on Schoettler Road has not yet been determined by the city. “That’s a pretty major thoroughfare,” Herring said. “We’d have to think long and hard about how best to go about dealing with the issue of traffic flows, whether to keep it open partially during the time of the construction or closed entirely.”

The Board approved final site plan on a 4-2 vote with Alderman Kathleen Gmelich (Ward 1) and Alderman Sean Concagh (Ward 3) voting against it. The conditional use permit for the grocery store was approved by a 5-1 vote, with only Concagh voting no.

ELLISVILLE Burglary investigated The Ellisville Police Department is investigating a burglary that took place between Sept. 30 and Oct. 4 at a residence on the 1300 block of Mallet Hill Drive. Among the items stolen were cameras, lenses, jewelry, various electronics and money, valued at $6,919. Ellisville Police Sgt. Nancy Walker said the department does not currently have any suspects for the crime, but that the case is still under investigation. Walker said that due to the perpetrators’ point of entry, there were no witnesses to the burglary. “They were able to get onto the deck, and then once they got onto the deck, which was enclosed, they were able to break the window with nobody seeing,” Walker said. No one was home during the time of the burglary, and Walker said there are no related incidents to this crime.

Ellisville City Council pauses in passing sign code legislation By DAN FOX The Ellisville City Council has started to change the city’s municipal code in order to make Ellisville a friendlier place to current and potential businesses, but not without hesitation by some councilmembers on certain issues. The roots of this project sprouted in September, with the Planning and Zoning Commission’s public hearing discussing the possibility of loosening the restrictions on temporary signs placed outside by businesses. In following meetings, the P&Z Commission talked also about allowing doggy daycare facilities in the M-1 light industrial district, as well as changing several types of businesses currently only conditionally permitted in the C-3 commercial zoning district to be permitted. Some of those proposed changes included fast food restaurants without drivethru’s and facilities with outdoor dining. After holding its own public hearings on the matter, the legislation pertaining to these changes came before the Council at a meeting on Oct. 16. Councilmembers discussed and voted with the majority in favor of allowing doggy daycare facilities; however, action on the legislation stopped there.

After both the proposed changes to the sign code and the CUP restrictions were passed on their first reading, Mayor Adam Paul objected to the Council moving on to the second reading of each piece of legislation, preventing their approval for anther two weeks. Paul said this was in order to make sure that the changes to the code would do more good than harm. “I want to go through this with a finetooth comb to ensure the residents and the business owners that we don’t open a can of worms,” Paul said. He said he feels the proposed changes that were presented to the Council were a step in the right direction for Ellisville and he just wants the terms and conditions of those changes to be further refined. Councilmember Mick Cahill (District 2) voiced concern on the changes to the sign code, saying that the changes required further scrutiny to avoid an overflow of temporary signs lining the streets in Ellisville. “I’m worried that it is going to be abused,” Cahill said. “I think we just have to tighten it up a little bit and make it somewhat controlled.” P&Z Commission member Dan Duffy said the suggested changes would only allow businesses to have a single sign on

Currently in Ellisville, businesses are required to pay for a permit to use signs like the one shown here.

display for advertising a special event. “The Council’s concerns surround enforcement more than permitted use,” Duffy said. “I think over the next two weeks as they review the legislation, they’ll see that.”

According to Duffy, the P&Z Commission will continue to look at changes that can be made to Ellisville’s municipal code, including what types of businesses are conditionally permitted in the other zoning districts around Ellisville.

Homes yes, businesses no, for Wildwood’s Jones properties By MARY SHAPIRO Wildwood’s City Council is set to vote on legislation Oct. 28 that would allow for more homes and less commercial development on part of the so-called Jones properties, specifically on 66 acres at the northwest corner of Hwy. 100 and Taylor Road. The Council, by a 13 to 2 vote on Oct. 14, approved drafting legislation that would amend the city’s comprehensive zoning map – specifically, its land use designations – to increase the area of neighborhood edge district uses, which allow for single-family, detached homes, while decreasing the amount of neighborhood general district uses, which allow multi-family development of no more than five-story buildings and commercial use only on the first floor of any multistory buildings. Only Councilmembers Ed Marshall (Ward 2) and Randy Ladd (Ward 2) were opposed. Jim Kranz (Ward 7) was absent. In the existing version of the regulating plan, the neighborhood edge district uses are on only the north and eastern perimeters of the property, immediately

bordering existing homes in subdivisions such as Evergreen. The modifications proposed would let those uses take up more land on those parts of the property near existing homes, while the multi-family/commercial development would remain along major roads, said Joe Vujnich, the city’s director of planning and parks. The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission has voted in favor of the changes. There is no current proposal for development of the site before the city. Most of the property is vacant, though three homes sit on part of the land. While owners of the property are opposed to the changes, many neighboring residents support them, insisting they would allow for a more residential buffer area between their homes and any future higher-density development. Janet Hoven, a member of the Jones family who lives on Old Hwy. 100, said she objected to the plan and asked for standalone commercial use to be allowed especially on the southeast corner of the property, adding, “the city has a tremendous asset in that corner of the Jones property, and Wildwood shouldn’t under-

use that asset – because the impact of what you do will endure beyond today.” However, the city is opposed to any standalone commercial land use on the property, with Vujnich saying that would complicate the development of existing commercial sites on the south side of Hwy. 100 by offering more competition. Allowing decentralization of the downtown commercial area could create a bad precedent and lead to the city’s core downtown area eventually becoming fragmented, he said. Resident Paul Pohlers, who lives on Sandalwood Creek Court, agreed. “I don’t want to see commercial use north of Hwy. 100,” he said. “This community can only support so many businesses, and there are already empty storefronts in Wildwood and Ellisville.” He also praised plans for the Pond-Grover Loop Road extension from Hwy. 100 to the north to go through the site. The city will allow some flexibility to future developers of the property to determine exactly where the extension should best go through. Councilmember Debra Smith McCutchen

(Ward 5) favored the plan, adding it was “wholly supported by Ward 5 residents in this area.” But Marshall objected to a proposal that he said was “customized by the neighbors.” “This takes away some possible value of the land, because single-family use will now be much more than a buffer area on the site,” he said. Ladd agreed that “people who own land have property rights, and we’ve taken those rights from the Jones people.” “Residents nearby should have known what development was possible next to them when they bought their property,” he said. In 1994, before the city was incorporated, a developer had proposed building more than 500 single-family and multifamily homes on the Jones property and an adjoining site. However, the site development plan submittal took place after the incorporation in 1995, and it was never finalized. Since the incorporation, only one development proposal has been submitted, for up to 40 single-family homes on about 12.5 acres of the land, but a site development plan was never completed, and the project fell through.

I-270 variable speed signs coming down Motorists traveling along I-270/I-255 may have noticed additional advance warnings as the Missouri Department of Transportation works to improve traffic flow and safety on the area’s most congested road. On Oct. 16, digital message boards along I-270/I-255 began displaying speed ahead information in addition to travel times to two destinations. MoDOT also began removing the variable advisory speed limit signs located along the highway. The speed limit signs originally were installed in 2008 and were modified in 2011. Their purpose was to give motorists advance warning of slowdowns and potential hazards, a task now assigned to the existing digital message boards. Removal of the variable speed limit signs will take approximately two weeks and began in South St. Louis County on westbound I-255, moving west and north on I-270 until all signs have been removed. According to MoDOT, the equipment will be recycled for use on other projects or roadways. “Starting today, the digital message signs

will display text informing motorists of the speed ahead,” MoDOT Assistant District Engineer Tom Blair said in an Oct. 16 press statement. “This information in addition to our normal travel time information will inform motorists of traffic ahead moving slower than the posted 60 mph and serve as a warning to be alert and prepare to slow down. “We will continuously advise drivers of how fast or slow their vehicle should be moving in order to safely get to their destination, in the shortest amount of time. The speed ahead message is similar to having advisory speed limit signs posted on curves and ramps. It is the suggested speed to safely travel that stretch of road.” MoDOT suggested that the advisory speed information is designed to pace the traffic leading up to recurring rush hour congestion or from congestion caused by closed lanes due to a crash or work zone. “MoDOT’s Gateway Guide traffic system of 300 cameras and 400 speed sensors knows when and where traffic problems happen,” Blair said.

The tax rate for the St. Louis Community College district will remain unchanged per $100 assessed valuation in accordance with the statutory provisions regarding tax rate settings. The STLCC Board of Trustees on Sept. 26 voted to keep the tax rate for 2013 at 22 cents. The tax rate is based on the assessed valuation of property in the community college district, which includes St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and portions of Franklin and Jefferson counties. The 2013 tax rate complies with the revenue growth limitations of the Hancock Amendment and state legislation, which mandates that the college cannot raise the tax rate higher than 22 cents without voter approval. The college

is allowed only to increase its property tax revenues by the lowest of actual growth, the rate of inflation, or 5 percent. Again this year, however, the college is at the maximum rate allowed by the legislation that limits the maximum authorized levy. Assessed real and personal property valuations for 2013 received from the St. Louis County Department of Revenue, the St. Louis City Office of the Assessor, and the county clerks of both Franklin and Jefferson counties indicate that the total assessed values decreased from $26.91 billion last year to $26.04 billion for 2013. For a taxpayer with no change in appraised/assessed property value, the individual’s tax bill will not increase in 2013.




Chesterfield moves to improve several park areas By DAN FOX The Chesterfield City Council has given approval for the preliminary steps in renovating several park areas. At a meeting on Oct. 7, the Council approved a resolution that would allow city staff to submit an application to the Municipal Parks Grant Commission in order to to seek funding for improving the Rivers Edge Park. The park, which incorporates a nearby lake, is located north of the levee in Chesterfield Valley, next to Taubman Prestige Outlets. The city would apply for a total of $275,000 in grant funds. The potential improvements would include adding two miles of stone trails, a gazebo and a fishing dock. In addition, City Administrator Mike Herring said that the Department of Conservation would stock the lake with fish at no cost to the city. If Chesterfield receives the grant, Herring said that


Liquor laws changing By DAN FOX The liquor license laws in the city of Chesterfield have undergone changes in order to match those issued by the State of Missouri. The laws altered several aspects of the requirements a business would need to meet to obtain a liquor license. Some of the changes include no longer making businesses wanting to sell liquor have 50 percent of their income come from food, changing the hours during which liquor may be sold on Sunday to 9 a.m. to midnight and restricting businesses with a “by the package” license from selling individual cans of beer. Councilmember Mike Casey (District 3) said this change in city code was to keep all businesses operating under the same set of rules. “It was more or less housekeeping to bring the liquor ordinance into compliance with what the state said,” Casey said. According to Police Chief Ray Johnson, keeping the Chesterfield liquor license laws in line with the state laws will make sure the city was not putting its businesses at a disadvantage with competitors in other municipalities. “We wanted to make sure that we weren’t in any way imposing greater restrictions on our local businesses than would be necessary,” Johnson said. Casey said that the adjustment for businesses to make to the new laws will be seamless, and that the changes wouldn’t have any negative impacts on local businesses. In terms of enforcing the city code, the changes to the law won’t present any new challenges to the police department, according to Johnson.

construction could start as early spring 2014. The Council also approved a recommendation to seek professional services for repairing significant erosion damage caused to the Riparian Trail, which is located off of August Hill Drive near the Chesterfield Mall. The city will bring in an engineering firm to study the damage to the trail and develop a comprehensive plan to fix the erosion and prevent further damage in the future. Herring said that ideally, the contract would be awarded over the coming winter months, with construction The Riparian Trail (shown above) is among the Chesterfield parks that will receive renovations if the city is successful in securing a $275,000 Municipal Parks Grant. commencing in spring of 2014.

By JIM ERICKSON Staying in the pink of physical condition soon will require members of The Pointe and the North Pointe pool complex in Ballwin to come up with more green. That result appeared all but certain after the Ballwin Board of Aldermen discussed a recommendation from the city’s parks and recreation department to boost individual and family membership rates at the two facilities. Although there was debate on specific costs for some membership categories, the Board asked legal counsel to prepare legislation authorizing the proposed increases and will make a final decision at an upcoming meeting. In a memo about the fee increases, Linda Bruer, director of parks and recreation, noted it has been at least nine years since membership rates last were changed. Even with the proposed increases, “The Pointe will remain the most economical recreational/fitness center in the West County area,” Bruer wrote. The new rates generally average about 9 percent above existing levels. At The Pointe, yearly memberships for Ballwin residents would increase as follows under the new legislation: • Youth up to $180 from $165 • Adult up to $330 from $305 • Single plus one up to $430 from $396 • Senior up to $180 from $165 • Senior couple up to $240 from $220 • Family up to $480 from $440

At the North Pointe swimming complex, yearly memberships for Ballwin residents would increase as follows under the new legislation: • Youth up to $85 from $75 • Adult up to $110 from $100 • Single plus one up to $180 from $166 • Senior up to $85 from $75 • Senior couple up to $135 from $125 • Family up to $210 from $195 The North Pointe’s early bird membership rates would continue, providing an average saving of about 10 percent. Membership rates for non-residents, which are higher, also will rise under the recommended schedule, with the increase being about 9 percent. What non-residents should be asked to pay for memberships was the focus of most of the Board’s discussion and may be the target for possible changes in the recommendation. Bruer said non-resident memberships are an important revenue source for both of Ballwin’s popular facilities but that resident memberships remain considerably greater in number. The Pointe and North Pointe offer a combined membership known as Pointe + and those rates also will increase an average of about 9 percent under the proposed schedule. Both The Point and Point + memberships will continue to offer the option of having a credit card debited monthly to pay for the total cost. That service requires a yearly activation fee and a small service charge for each payment.

Ballwin budget to see few changes in 2014 By JIM ERICKSON Ballwin’s city government leaders are not looking for any dramatic changes to the 2014 budget, either in revenue sources or in projected expenditures. That conclusion came from a budget work session Oct. 14. City Administrator Robert Kuntz said he expects revenues to increase slightly in 2014. The biggest sources of income are sales tax receipts, public utility fees, and income from various community programs. Those three account for 38, 21 and 15 percent, respectively, of Ballwin’s revenues. Difficult to predict is the impact of weather factors on both income and expenditures. For example, last year’s mild winter meant lower outlays for snow removal and road salt applications. Similarly, 2012’s early spring and warmer-thanusual summer temperatures boosted golf course receipts and income from the North

Pointe swimming pool complex. This year, a wetter spring and summer and more moderate temperatures meant a decline in those income sources, and no one knows what conditions the coming winter will bring. Ballwin officials are looking at a variety of capital expenditure possibilities during the 2014-18 period, and preliminary estimates put the cost of these projects at some $12 million. While Ballwin can use some of its financial reserves to help pay those costs, Alderman Frank Fleming (Ward 3) noted it was clear to him that the city will reach a point when there isn’t enough money to pay for everything. No one disputed that, but Kuntz noted many aspects of the capital projects remain tentative. The Board still has the authority to decide when or if those projects should be pursued and how they should be paid for, he said. Ballwin’s financial reserves are projected at $7.1 million at the end of the year.




Monarch Board acts to protect directors from liability By JIM ERICKSON The Monarch Fire Protection District Board has acquired directors and officers liability insurance to protect individual directors more fully if they are sued due to actions they take in connection with their official duties. The Board thought it had adequate coverage, but that view changed when three command officers sued Monarch and two of its directors as individuals after the Board voted to fire them in the wake of a discrimination lawsuit decision that went against Monarch. The officers had been named in that legal action and directors Kim Evans and Steve Swyers voted to terminate them when a Missouri Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s decision supporting the plaintiffs’ claims. The officers’ lawsuit was dismissed earlier this year, but their attorney has asked the judge to reconsider that action and also has appealed the ruling. What Monarch directors realized as that lawsuit progressed was that the then-existing coverage was more limited when it came to coverage of directors named as individuals in a lawsuit, as opposed to the district as a whole. Insurance for individual directors and

“Every time we meet and take action on any issue, we theoretically are putting ourselves at risk of being sued.” -ROBIN HARRIS

Fire safety at Monarch FPD

Monarch Fire Protection District is taking steps to make sure it is following its own advice and requirements about having an operable sprinkler system. At its Oct. 14 meeting, the Monarch Board approved a bid from Fire Tech LLC, to install a new sprinkler system in the attic of its administration building on Olive Street Road. The new installation will replace much older equipment that has malfunctioned recently and caused water damage in the structure. The estimated cost of rehabbing the existing system to avoid future incidents was so high that Monarch staff recommended a complete replacement with up-to-date and more trouble-free equipment. With a bid of $115,352, Fire Tech was the low bidder on the project. Work is expected to begin soon.

officers to protect their personal assets in the event of a lawsuit is common in the business world. Many, if not most boards of public agencies also have such coverage. The standard advice, echoed by local lawyers, is that no one should serve on a board of directors unless they are covered by insurance that protects them if any lawsuit is filed and they are named individually. Monarch has been pursuing the issue for a couple of months and had put a priority on correcting what directors had concluded was inadequate coverage. Robin Harris, now the Board president,

was not named in the officers’ lawsuit because he was out of town when Evans and Swyers voted to fire them. However, Harris, Swyers and new director Jane Cunningham all approved adding the D&O coverage. “Every time we meet and take action on any issue we theoretically are putting ourselves at risk of being sued,” Harris said. “This simply was something that needed to be corrected as soon as possible.” A check paying for the coverage had been prepared, and on Oct. 14, after receiving Board approval, was given to representatives

of the Smith McGehee insurance firm so the policy could go into effect immediately. The policy does not apply to the officers’ lawsuit, which was filed almost two years ago. Although Monarch had contacted a number of other insurance firms, only Smith McGehee submitted a “timely and actual policy proposal,” Harris said to explain why the Board had not sought bids on the new coverage. The insurance provides coverage up to $5 million with a $100,000 deductible and a yearly premium of $146,000.

Walmart confirms its decision to pull out of Ellisville

By DAN FOX Walmart once again has confirmed that it no longer wishes to proceed with development in the city of Ellisville. The city had requested a definitive answer from Walmart on whether or not the retailer wanted to proceed with the Ellisville project, and on Oct. 14, it received it in the form of an open letter to the city. According to Mayor Adam Paul, the answer mirrored Walmart’s original response from early September, when the company stated it no longer wanted to move forward with the project. Paul said that he thought Walmart’s decision to stick to their original statement was honorable.


“I thank Walmart for sticking by their guns in deciding to withdraw from the Ellisville project,” Paul said. On Sept. 24, the Council held a public hearing, in which representatives from Walmart’s developer for the project, the Sansone Group, had argued for their claim to the conditional use permit that Ellisville had issued them. Following that meeting, Sansone representatives said Walmart was recommitted to the Ellisville development. However, there were no Walmart representatives present at that meeting, and the statement made by Sansone was never confirmed by the company. Paul said, given Walmart’s position, he believes the Walmart project is finally over.

“They never once confirmed that they were truly on board again with the city, hence the reason why the city requested a yes or no definitive answer,” Paul said. “Quite frankly, I think it is safe at this point to say that the Sansone/Walmart project is dead.” In a statement to West Newsmagazine, Anne Hatfield, Walmart’s director of communications, said, “We continue to believe a new Walmart would contribute toward the economic health of Ellisville but unfortunately we were not able to come to terms for this project.” Ellisville resident Elizabeth Schmidt said she is happy to finally have a definitive answer. “I’m glad that Walmart finally made a definitive statement. I just wonder what took them so long,” she said. Schmidt lives in the Clarkchester Apartments complex, which stands on the proposed location for the Walmart. The uncertainty of the apartments’ future has changed the community, according to Schmidt. “It’s been quite a roller coaster ride,” Schmidt said. “We’ve lost a lot of long-term tenants, some had been there more than a decade, so the character of the place has changed.” Barbara Ellebrecht, whose family owns property in the Clarkchester complex, said that the uncertainty of the Walmart project’s

direction made running her business difficult. “It is extremely difficult to make business decisions concerning the homes of tenants when you do not know whether an apartment building will still be yours a day, a week, a month or years from now,” Ellebrecht said. Councilmember Gary Voss (District 1) said he’s satisfied with the outcome; however, he said that the situation’s resolution had not left a clear victor. “I don’t want to say we won,” Voss said. “I think everybody lost in this deal.” Paul, who has fought the Walmart project since his election into office, said he feels the development has been a dark cloud hanging over the city. With Walmart’s confirmation of their intent to leave the Ellisville project, Paul said that cloud is dissipating. “Our people our amazing, they stick by each other’s sides. Our residents are dedicated, motivated and interested in what’s happening in the community,” Paul said. He added that the Council is “really starting to mesh.” “I think the Council is really starting to find its stride and work together,” he said. “I’m looking forward to really getting a chance to move this city forward in a positive way.”

Wildwood to look at speed control for Prospector Ridge Drive By MARY SHAPIRO As a way to deal with speeding on Prospector Ridge Drive and Still Creek Pass, Wildwood’s City Council is expected to vote Oct. 28 on legislation that would allow for three-way stop signs among other measures. Ryan Thomas, director of public works and city engineer, told the Council on Oct. 14 that the homeowners association of the Villages at Winding Trails subdivision had come to the city’s Board of Public Safety with speeding concerns, especially about Prospector Ridge, which is used as a cut-through route between heavily traveled Clayton Road and Thunderhead Canyon Drive. While the speed limit on Prospector Ridge is 25 miles per hour, two recent, week-long speed surveys conducted by the Wildwood Precinct of St. Louis County Police at two different locations on the road showed that 743 cars were going through at between 31 and 35 mph, 80 at 36 to 40 mph, and 11 at 41 to 45 mph. One resident had been in a serious car crash on the road, Thomas said, adding there are steep grades and curves on part of the street and a history of crashes. The City Council, on Oct. 28, also will vote on establishing a Keep Kids Alive Zone on Prospector Ridge. That street includes the neighborhood pool and tennis

courts and is an active area for children, Thomas said. Keep Kids Alive Zones carry higher fines for speeding and other moving traffic violations, up to a maximum of $1,000. Signs indicating that level of potential fine are often a speeding deterrent in themselves, Thomas said. Radar enforcement would also be done after signs are installed, he noted. If the new stop signs and Keep Kids Alive Zone are approved, the city would do more speed surveys to see if they prove effective. If not, the city could later consider the possibility of installing speed cushions – several small speed bumps, installed with spaces between them across the width of a road – on Prospector Ridge, as the city has done on Green Pines Drive and Forest Leaf Parkway, Thomas said. He added that the city could also consider installing a center traffic calming island or curb bump-outs on Prospector Ridge. While Councilmember Debra Smith McCutchen (Ward 5) said she wondered if simply increasing monitoring of speeds by police could prove more effective than the stop signs and Keep Kids Alive Zone, Thomas said police are limited in the amount of time they can stake out the road. “Let’s try this first step and see where it goes,” said Councilmember Katie Dodwell (Ward 4).

Ellisville Assistant Principal Emily Dittmer (left) and Principal Allison Loy are covered in “pie” thrown at them by Jennifer Strub’s fifthgrade class.

A pie for the principal Students at Ellisville Elementary got a once in a lifetime opportunity – throwing pies in their principals’ faces. Students surpassed their fall fundraising goal of $20,000 and, as an incentive, got to “pie” their principals during an outdoor celebration. Funds were raised to support the PTO. The donations were made online through the “Ready, Set, Give” site or brought to school. It’s an approach used at Ellisville in lieu of selling fundraising items. There were weekly incentives for students including extra recess for the class with the top donations and music during

Joseph “Joe” Layton Field Sales & Service Rep Senior Sales/Medicare Programs Your Local Anthem Employee - Call Me

lunch. The incentives kept the kids motivated and interested throughout the month. Fifth-grade teacher Jennifer Strub’s class raised the most money and were designated official pie throwers. Assistant Principal Emily Dittmer said a pie in the face was worth it. The money raised during the “Ready, Set, Give” campaign helps support events like Movie Night, Donuts with Dad and carnivals. Additionally, the PTO helps provide some major technology to teachers and students in the classroom. “For me, I was kind of hoping a kindergarten class would win. Those fifth-graders can really throw!” Dittmer joked. “Despite the public humiliation, it was great to hear kids laughing and cheering as the pies were flying. It was a reminder of what a fun and happy school we have at Ellisville.”

‘Act of bravery’ recognized Aurora Hill, an adjunct instructor in English at St. Louis Community College – Meramec, has been recognized by the St. Louis Community College Board of Trustees for her efforts in pulling an assailant away from a student during an incident at the Meramec campus in April. Hill responded to the screams of a student who was being attacked in a campus restroom. She pulled the assailant away and into the hallway, holding him until the campus police arrived on the scene. “The Board of Trustees expresses sincere and heartfelt appreciation to Aurora Hill for her quick actions, bravery and unselfish efforts on behalf of the student,” said Craig Larson, Ph.D., chair of the STLCC Board of Trustees, reading from a resolution of appreciation presented to Hill at the Sept. 26 Board meeting. The trustees also established a scholarship in Hill’s name to help students who are transitioning to higher education. Hill, a graduate of STLCC, is the founder of a nonprofit website, The Homeroom, designed to assist and encourage high school students who are interested in a planned transfer program between their local community college and a national university.

National recognition for newspapers Both the Marquette Messenger and Lafayette Image are finalists for National Pacemaker awards. Students involved with the school papers will be going to Boston in November to receive their award and attend the national JEA/NSPA fall convention. Lafayette Image publication advisor Nancy Smith said, “I’m very proud that the hard work of the Image staff has been recognized by the National Scholastic Press Association. The students do an amazing job with the student newspaper and online publication and being selected as a Finalist in the Pacemaker competition is really an honor. It will be really fun to attend the award ceremony in Boston, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed that we bring home the big award.” Marquette Messenger publication advisor Emily Jorgensen said, “I’m extremely proud of my staff. They accomplish everything professional publication staffs accomplish, but unlike a professional reporter, they are in classes all day as well as sports and other organizations. I always tell them they can do anything a professional journalist can do and they have proven that is true. They are truly amazing. Many of my students start out on staff as second semester freshmen and stick with it until graduation, so I’m lucky because I

can watch them learn and grow as journalists.” The NSPA Newspaper Pacemaker contest has awarded general excellence in scholastic newspapers for 86 years. The 2013 Newspaper Pacemaker contest was made possible by the generous donation of time and expertise by the staff of The Miami Herald, who judged this year’s entries. The contest yielded more than 300 entries and categories included: Newspaper Broadsheet eight or fewer pages, Newspaper Broadsheet 9-16 pages, Newspaper Broadsheet 17-plus pages, Newspaper Tabloid, Newsmagazines and Jr. High/Middle School Newspapers.

Safety Day at Bellerive Elementary goes over with a bang – and a sizzle By MARY SHAPIRO Some unfortunate hot dogs were among the most memorable, and shortest-lived, featured performers at the Parkway School District’s first-ever Progressive Agriculture Safety Day, held Oct. 3 at Bellerive Elementary School. The event was held for fourth-graders from Bellerive and those visiting from Craig Elementary School. Willie Mannings and Rich Naes, both with Ameren Missouri, showed youngsters clustered around them what happens to a hot dog placed next to a live electrical wire on a simulator. “They burned the hot dog with the power line – I liked watching that, because it just caught on fire, turning red and blue,” said Duncan Bertier, 9, from Bellerive. “I really learned to keep your distance from any downed power line.” Mannings told youngsters that anyone seeing a downed electrical wire should call 911 right away. “We want to get the kids’ attention and shock them into the reality of the dangers of touching a downed line – but not shock them literally,” Mannings said. Jami DeBosch, principal at Bellerive, said that about 120 students took part in Safety Day, which featured demonstration stations inside and outside the school on first aid and safety precautions in regard to fire, electricity, firearms, chemicals, bicycles, water, sun and roads. At the bicycle safety station, for instance, students were fitted with their own bike helmet, and a presenter compared the difference between dropping a melon without a helmet to dropping a melon with a helmet on. “The purpose of Safety Day is to teach students to make healthy, safe choices in dealing with everyday dangers, providing one-stop shopping for the children,” DeBosch said.

“The event was targeted to fourth-graders because it most aligned to their curriculum.” Melissa Biehl, librarian at Bellerive, called the event “an awesome, great idea, to tailor this event to the needs of Parkway students.” Students heard from motivational speaker John O’Leary, who had been severely burned playing with gasoline when he was a fourth-grader. The event was sponsored by Bunge North America, among others, which donated the bike helmets and raised $15,000 to put the event on. Some of the parents at Bellerive and Craig work for Bunge, which has offices in the Westport area, said Katie DeClue, Bellerive assistant principal. Katie Bauer, communications manager/ international relations with Bunge, said her company was happy to support the event, “because a commitment to safety is reflective of our goal of eliminating safety incidents for our own employees.” Children attending demonstrations came away with other free items like water bottles, binoculars, safety supplies like bandaids, and more. Anjola Ola, 9, a Bellerive student, said she enjoyed the chemistry demonstration. “They tested you to see if you knew the difference between something you can safely put in your mouth and something that could make you sick, like Windex or taking too much aspirin,” she said. Ola also enjoyed the Ameren demonstration. “They said the reason birds can sit on electrical lines and not get hurt is because they’re not attached to the ground, but we could get shocked if we touched a wire because we’d be standing on the ground and electricity flows through the ground,” she said. “My favorite exhibit was about bicycles, because I got a helmet and other stuff in addition to all the information about safety,” said 9-year-old Craig student Kushal Patel.

Marquette won the Suburban West Conference golf tournament held at Aberdeen Golf Club, which plays to a par 72, in Eureka. Marquette won with total of 333. Lafayette came in second with a score of 342. Parkway South was fourth with a score of 365, and Eureka took fifth with a score of 377. The tourney medalist was Marquette sophomore Allison Tichenor, who tied Lindbergh’s Courtney Schaper. Tichenor won in a playoff. Marquette’s Mindy Hennrich, 78; Ashley Daniels, 83; Morgan Holmes, 85; and Catie Lambert, 89, also medaled in the top 15 as did Lafayette’s Sarah Madej, 84; and Gabby McDaris, 89; Parkway South’s Allie Dannegger, 87; and Lauren Goeke, 90; and Eureka’s Kelly Jackson, 89; and Allison Rieske, 91. Marquette coach Michelle Spencer said she thought if her girls played well and to their ability they would have a good shot at winning the tournament. “The girls played great. It’s our goal to lower our team score each tournament we play in and we did that with a score of 333. Our previous low was 338,” Spencer said. “It was our third time playing Aberdeen this year so the girls learned from previous

rounds and put together a good score.” It was the first time for Tichenor to win the conference crown. She was 12th last year. It took two holes to produce the winner with Schaper. “Her first tee shot went into the water but she rebounded well with a good approach shot and then nailed a 20-foot bogey putt,” Spencer said. “Courtney also bogeyed to force a second playoff hole where Allison made par and Courtney bogeyed. It was an exciting finish; both girls had excellent rounds.” Spencer was proud of her other girls as well. “We are a deep team and this was truly a team effort,” Spencer said.

Suburban South Conference Parkway West captured the Suburban South Conference tournament title that was played at Crescent Farms Golf Club in Eureka. The course has a par of 72. The Longhorns shot a team score of 342. Parkway Central came in fifth with a score of 406. Parkway North was sixth with 420 points. Parkway West’s Emily Goldenstein was the medalist with a 73. Other medalists who finished in the top 15 were Elizabeth Leath, of Parkway Central, 78; Rebecca Su, of Parkway West, 85; Mia Walton, of Parkway West, 88; and Gretchen Gregory, of Parkway North, 91. Coach Nancy Sachtleben was happy for the Longhorns to finally win the tournament. “This is our first conference win in several years, if not decades,” Sachtle-

ben said. “We were tied for first last year (with Rockwood Summit) but took second because of the fifth player’s score being the tiebreaker. The girls did play well at Crescent. We thought if we played fairly well, that we would be able to win, but we knew it would be close.” Goldenstein, a senior who has committed to play at Memphis, captured the medalist honor for the second consecutive year. “Emily Goldenstein did excellent,” Sachtleben said. “She was over on her first nine and was able to make up a few strokes on the next nine she played and get it back to only one over par. She started the year off with a 68, 3 under par, at the Rockwood Summit Tournament at The Falls. “She has been named for the second year in a row as the Suburban Conference Player of the Year.” No. 2 golfer Rebecca Su shot an 85. “She felt she could have done a little better, but an 85 is excellent since this is a course we don’t play very often,” Sachtleben said. “Freshman Mia Walton did very well with an 88. It was her first time this year to be in the 80s so we were very happy. Senior Polly Barclay also came in with a 96 to help the team score.”

SPORTS BRIEFS, from page 27 A two-sport athlete at EIU, Berra plays baseball in the spring. ••• Brandon Shepherd, another Parkway Central graduate, is playing well at Oklahoma State. A sophomore wide receiver, Shepherd was averaging 14.4 yards a catch at presstime, which is second best on the team. He had heavy recruiting interest with some of his reported scholarship offers coming from Illinois, Iowa, Kansas State and Missouri before he chose Oklahoma State. As a senior at Parkway Central, Shepherd had 47 catches for 818 yards with 21 receiving touchdowns, five rushing touchdowns and two scores in the return game. He also had 56 tackles on defense with three interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Former Rams player Grant Williams with the Wildcats

Former Rams player Grant Williams joins coaching staff at Westminster By WARREN MAYES Westminster Christian Academy athletes have been coached by Steve Stipanovich, Todd Worrell, Andy Benes and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny. The fact that these pros devote themselves to WCA students never ceases to amaze Todd Zell, Westminster’s athletic director. “I think it says a lot about them as people. There is a good chance they had a coach who had a positive influence on their lives and they want to give back,” Zell said. “We are truly blessed to have them all give of their time and knowledge.” Now, a Super Bowl champion is helping the WCA football team. Former St. Louis Ram offensive lineman Grant Williams is an assistant coach at Westminster. Williams and his family live in Chesterfield. “I have been leading a Bible study for the Westminster coaches for five years at which they consistently offered me the opportunity to come and volunteer,” Williams said. “Football, of course, means a lot to me, but I’m out here because there is an opportunity to build and mold responsible men, men who respond appropriately to life. I’m convinced this is what the world needs most and football is a great conduit for that.” Head coach Cory Snyder is happy to have Williams around. “Grant does a good job of focusing on the kids and Westminster without getting caught up in all of his accomplishments,” Snyder said. “He really is a humble guy. Every once in a while we pull stories out of him, but we always have to poke and prod.” Williams was a left tackle for the New England Patriots when they defeated the Rams to win Super Bowl XXVI in New Orleans. The Louisiana Tech graduate came to St. Louis the following season in a trade with St. Louis. He played through the 2004 season before retiring.

“After 10 years in the NFL, it was time to finish up my undergrad from Louisiana Tech so I could start my master’s work at Covenant Theological Seminary,” said Williams, who earned his master of arts in counseling in 2012. At Westminster, Williams has input in the offensive line, defensive line, offseason training and helping with game-planning. “I’ve preferred to focus mostly on the offensive line,” Williams said. “It’s what I know best and I believe it is where a little coaching goes a long way.” Teaching linemen is a task with many facets. There is technique to learn. Then there are the assignments that come with blocking. It’s a job that requires focus. Three senior leaders who have led by example this season are left tackle Matt Kimberling, center Nick Zintel and right guard Wes Park. “If we polled the staff I think they would agree Matt probably has the highest level of physical effort on the field,” Williams said. “Nick is our unnoticed workhorse in the middle who regularly grades out the best among the o-lineman. Wes has served the team and made us better by moving in from tackle last year to guard this season. He has served himself well by buying into the newer techniques. We feel he can make any block we ask of him.” While Williams had a solid NFL career and played in the Super Bowl, he catches the Wildcats off guard when they ask him about what he remembers most. “We all like stories, and there is a time for that, but I think they are surprised that I rank high school playoffs, and a few college games right up there with the Super Bowl experience,” Williams said. “Football truly is about the journey and doing this together.” Westminster is entering its last week of the regular season. The Wildcats will play Saturday (Oct. 26) at home against Duchesne. Kickoff is at 2 p.m.

Diver Matt McCool makes a name for himself at Lafayette

Matt McCool

(Photo courtesy of Lafayette Lancers)

By WARREN MAYES Lafayette’s first-year diving coach Julia Pierce wants her divers to be “Tonka Tough” and sophomore Matt McCool certainly fits the bill. “My saying is ‘Tonka Tough,’ – dig deeper and deeper yet and give it your very best,” Pierce said. “And these boys do with a smile and sometimes a smack. Ouch.” The 5-foot-9, 150-pound McCool is a newcomer at Lafayette. He became a Lancer when his family moved here in August. He comes from a Philadelphia suburb and has been diving about three years. “Up until July of this year, I was a competitive gymnast,” McCool said. “I joined a community summer league three summers ago. I joined a JO (Junior Olympic) diving program in January of this year. It seemed like a natural progression from gymnastics.” Pierce said being a gymnast has helped his diving. “Matt came to us with great skills and was a former level 10 gymnast,” Pierce said. “He certainly has a lot of space to grow and expand as he has only been diving three short years and has gymnastics habits.” Diving is a sport that is mentally, physically, emotionally and psychologically tough. When you are on the diving board, you have to block everything out and focus. Although it is just one event in a swim meet, Lafayette head coach Todd Gabel appreciates what it brings to the sport. “Diving is important because it ... counts for

16 points and if you do not have divers and the other team has three then you start the meet down by 13 points,” Gabel said. “At conference, if all other teams have four divers, you are down even more to all the teams. “Diving is overlooked because it is only one event and swimming has the rest.” Pierce agreed. “Even though swimming and diving share the same water, we are two different sports but are important for each other because diving is just one small part of a larger aspect of an entire swim meet,” Pierce said. “Our goal as divers is to do well individually but to earn as many points possible for our swimming boys’ or girls’ program.” Certainly, McCool is doing his best to elevate it. He qualified for the state meet in his first event this year. He also won first place in his first four meets against Parkway Central, St. Louis University High, Ladue and Chaminade. McCool is modest about his accomplishments. “I’ve been doing pretty well so far,” he said. “I was excited to make state in the first meet. Our dive team placed first at the Marquette relays. I tied my personal best at 249 for six dives.” Pierce is impressed with McCool’s performances. “He has natural athletic ability, beautiful form and the ability to ride the board well,” Pierce said. “He has been very consistent hitting around 245 to 247 points on most six-dive meets.” McCool said he likes Pierce and Gabel as his coaches. “Julia is such a high-energy coach. She’s really enthusiastic,” McCool said. “Todd, even though he coaches the swim team, is really supportive as well.” Each diver has certain dives to perform at each meet. He also has to select some dives, too. “I think I do my voluntary dives better than my required ones,” McCool said. “I’m not sure why.” Pierce said that is not unusual at all. “We are still working on dives. Like life, we are all a work in progress,” Pierce said. “I want him to be happy with his diving.” McCool has some goals left for the season. The Suburban West Conference meet is Nov. 7-8. “I really want to break my personal best score and maybe add an inward 2 1/2 or 3 1/2 dive,” McCool said. The state meet will be held Nov. 15-16. McCool is looking forward to competing. “It’s really exciting to be competing with Missouri’s best divers,” said McCool, who said he would like to dive in college. “I would love to place top five.”

Healt h Capsu les Chinese delegation visits Chesterfield Delegates from China recently paid a visit to Strotheide Chiropractic, the Chesterfield office of Drs. Jason Strotheide and Dan O’Leary. Tasked with evaluating a handful of chiropractic offices in the U.S., the delegates were looking for a chiropractic office to serve as a model for chiropractic clinics in China. “Because of our extensive Dr. Jason Strotheide (center) hosts delegates from China at Strotheide Chiropractic on Oct. 7. use of cutting edge technology and the exceptional results we get – even where surgery and other chiropractic offices have failed – our office is in top contention to be the ‘gold standard’ for all future chiropractic offices in China,” Strotheide said. “It is amazing that despite chiropractic being the second most widely used form of health care in the U.S., it is essentially unheard of in China,” O’Leary added. Strotheide Chiropractic is located at 173 Long Road, Suite 100.

Flu shots OK for egg-allergic kids An allergy to eggs should not prevent a child from getting a flu shot, according to a flu safety update published in the October issue of the Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. The Centers for Disease Control recommends observing egg-allergic children for 30 minutes following a flu shot; having the shot

under the care of a primary care provider if the reaction to eating eggs is only hives; or having the shot under the care of an allergist if the reaction to eating eggs is more serious. But according to a spokesperson for the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), those precautions are not necessary. “In a large number of research studies pub-

lished over the last several years, thousands of egg-allergic children – including those with a severe, life-threatening reaction to eating eggs – have received injectable influenza vaccine (IIV) as a single dose without a reaction,” said John Kelso, M.D., fellow of the ACAAI. “The benefits of the flu vaccination far outweigh any risk. As with any vaccine, all personnel and facilities administering flu shots should have procedures in place for the rare instance of anaphylaxis – a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction. If you have questions or concerns, contact your allergist.”

significance of the study’s findings. “Our results clearly support an association between physical activity and postmenopausal breast cancer, with more vigorous activity having a stronger effect,” Patel said. “Our findings are particularly relevant, as people struggle with conflicting information about how much activity they need to stay healthy. Without any other recreational physical activities, walking on (an) average of at least one hour per day was associated with a modestly lower risk of breast cancer. More strenuous and longer activities lowered the risk even more.”

Walking to reduce breast cancer risk

Antibiotics still over-prescribed

We’ve all heard of organized walks to end breast cancer. Now, a study from the American Cancer Society shows that simply walking for an hour a day can reduce a postmenopausal woman’s breast cancer risk. In a 17-year study involving more than 70,000 postmenopausal women, American Cancer Society researchers compared women’s exercise levels and breast cancer status. “Among those who reported walking as their only activity, those who walked at least seven hours per week had a 14 percent lower risk of breast cancer compared to those who walked three or fewer hours per week,” the American Cancer Society reported in a news release. “Consistent with most prior studies, the most active women had (a) 25 percent lower risk of breast cancer than the least active.” Lead researcher Alpa Patel stressed the

Despite widespread efforts to reduce unnecessary use of antibiotics, the medications continue to be significantly over-prescribed as treatments for adults with acute bronchitis and sore throats, according to research at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. “We know that antibiotic prescribing, particularly to patients who are not likely to benefit from it, increase the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, a growing concern both here in the U.S. and around the world,” said Jeffrey A. Linder, M.D., senior author of the study. “Our research shows that while only 10 percent of adults with sore throat have strep – the only common cause of sore throat requiring antibiotics – the national antibiotic prescribing rate for adults with sore throat has remained at 60 percent. For acute bronchitis, the right antibiotic prescribing rate should be near zero percent, and the national antibiotic prescribing rate was 73 percent.”

Rockwood’s Trek and Travel program takes learning to the great outdoors geology, ecology, weather and plant and animal adaptations in one of the most biologically diverse and geologically unique areas of the country. “To get their feet wet and hands dirty,” said Kevin Zimmer, Trek and Travel program manager. “I like science-y stuff and going into the outdoors and meeting new people,” Crothers said. “You walk out the door and wildlife is everywhere. I also like the experience of being away from my parents – that’s fun. And each of the trips was really different, even though I’ve gone twice to the same place.” Crothers praised working with geothermal thermometers and other equipment while doing scientific experiments such as researching geysers and how they erupt. “My favorite part, at the end of each day, was writing in a journal about and reflecting on what we did,” she said. While in fifth grade at Pond Elementary School, Crothers also went on one of the five Smoky Mountains Adventure trips held from March through May each year; so did Rockwood Valley sixth-graders Alex Meuret and Matthew Jones, both 12.

Rockwood, for many years, has had a tradition of providing students with opportunities to connect learning from their classrooms to the outside world, said Mike Seppi, the district’s director of community education. But, as of the 2011-2012 school year, all district science adventure trips have come under the administration umbrella of the Rockwood Community Education department through the Babler Outdoor Education Center as part of a self-funded Trek and Travel program. Various trips, for kids in fourth through eighth grades, are designed to maximize learning through lessons experienced in the outdoors and aligned to district science curricula. “Our tag for Trek and Travel is, “taking learning to the trail,” to connect learning in the classroom to the outdoor environment and bring the curriculum to life,” Seppi said.

and develop leadership skills. “I had so much fun that my sister Rachel, who’s a fifth-grader at Chesterfield, is going on the same trip this coming spring,” Meuret said. “I love to go out into nature and love looking at and studying animals.” Meuret enjoyed hikes, including some the kids did by themselves. “At the waterfalls, we took turns putting our heads underneath the falls,” he said. “It was awesome. And I liked, after the hikes, sitting in rocking chairs and just talking about what we did.” Jones, who said he loves “camping, hiking and everything outdoors,” also said he was pleased the Smoky Mountains trip focused on ecology and how animals react to the environment. “We did water ecology studies, going into a stream and taking nets to sample the micro invertebrates there,” Jones said. Seppi said students from three or four Rockwood elementary schools go on Smoky Mountains trips together, and students from all six Rockwood middle schools take part in the Teton Trek, “so social interaction with new people is as important as learning.” Nicole said she’s stayed in touch with many of the students she met.


Faith Woytus, 10 and a fifth-grader at Ellisville Elementary School, was among students who went on one of the Ozark Rocks trips that started last year. On those trips, fourth-grade students, each with a parent/guardian, travel – in either November or April – over two days to explore the features of the Ozark Mountain region. Places visited include Elephant Rocks State Park and Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park. Like the Teton Trek, the trip is open to all fourth-grade students, including Rockwood kids and those who attend private or parochial schools within the district. The next trip is set for Nov. 9-10. Woytus went in April of this year with her dad, Marty. “The thing I enjoyed the most was being able to sleep in a tent, which was cold but really fun,” said Woytus, who hopes to go on the Smoky Mountains trip. “We both went on hikes and learned about different rocks and how they’re formed and about different kinds of plants in the Ozarks. It was great to be out in nature and not stuck in a classroom. And I thought it was cool to hang out with kids from other Rockwood schools.” All the trips are by charter bus and all are meant to cover a wide variety of school disciplines, Zimmer said. “While the main focus is science, kids also get involved in learning about geography, history, social science, English, jour-

naling and even art,” he said. “We call the trips a sophisticated camping experience, an outdoor adventure for those who like to sleep inside and shower.” The number of kids going on each has varied over the years. Since community education began handling it, more than 500 fifth-graders have headed to the Smoky Mountains. “Other trips are designed to be smaller,” Seppi said. For example, the Ozark Rocks trip is limited to 50 people. This coming summer, there will be fewer than 48 kids on the Teton Trek. Teachers come along on the trips as chaperones. Fees vary, too, but are all-inclusive of food and transportation. The Ozark Rocks trip costs $299 per parent-child couple. The fee per child is $495 for the Smoky Mountains Adventure. For the Teton Trek, there are two price levels – $1,250 per child for the sixth-grade level, or $1,515 for the seventh- and eighth-grade levels. “There is fee assistance for lower income families who qualify,” Seppi said. “And, for the Smoky Mountains Adventure and Teton Trek, we can break the fee into installment payments to help make it more affordable for parents.” Registration for the Smoky Mountains Adventure, Teton Trek and Ozark Rocks trips is now open. For more information, call 7332016, or visit Seppi said he’s talking with science coordinators to identify trips that could expand the program to high school students, starting as early as 2015. And the district is looking at different regions of the country where students could go, Zimmer said. “We’d love to have kids have these new experiences every year they’re in school, so we’re trying to find affordable, impactful adventures,” Seppi said. “Even though we collect their electronic devices on the trips so kids can disconnect, they’re able to reconnect with the natural world and be invigorated.”

Parkway District honors recycling award winners By MARY SHAPIRO Some Parkway School District students and staff were recognized Oct. 9 by the Board of Education for an idea that turned tasty waste into a recycling reward. Julia Goldman, a Parkway Central High School senior; and Abby Lammers, a Parkway North High School junior, joined Russ Barton, a Parkway North High science teacher; Erik Lueders, the district’s sustainability and purchasing manager, and Marlene Pfeiffer, Parkway’s director of food services, to be honored for receiving, on Sept. 17, a Missouri Recycling Association Outstanding Small Organics Diversion Program award in Jefferson City. In addition to the award, Parkway received a proclamation from the Missouri Senate signed by Sen. Tom Dempsey. Mark Stockwell, the district’s chief financial officer, told the board that Parkway has been a leader in recycling since 1991 when three elementary school students made a presentation to the Board of Education that the district should recycle its styrofoam lunch trays. Since then, the recycling program has grown steadily, he said. “Now, through single-stream recycling (with trash hauler Republic Services), Parkway recovers between 750 and 800 tons of waste every year,” he said. Last year, the North area schools piloted a compostable lunch tray and combined food composting program funded by the St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District.

That pilot was held in all north area schools including Bellerive, Craig, McKelvey and Ross elementary schools, Northeast Middle School and North High School. The pilot was actively promoted by students and very well received, Stockwell said. “Last spring, students again made their case for Parkway to continue efforts to go green,” he said. Lammers, Goldman and recent North High graduate Jacqueline Sotraidis (now a freshman at the University of Minnesota) told Parkway Superintendent Keith Marty and his leadership team about the need for Parkway to expand the program districtwide. “This year, Parkway is implementing a compostable lunch trays and the composting program to all schools,” Stockwell said. The trays and food are collected three times a week. “Again, this program will divert an additional 720 tons of material every year from landfills, nearly doubling Parkway’s program impact in one year.” He praised the team effort aided by students, teachers, principals, custodians and the sustainability and food services staffs. “I love the success of the program, seeing bins filled with recyclable trays that aren’t going into landfills,” said Goldman, 17. Lammers, 16, said she was pleased the program has done so well. “I’m shocked at how well students are responding, and teachers are even incorporating the program into their curriculum,” she said.

Does it Feel Like a Toothache in Your Leg or Thigh?

Do You Have Hip Pain? Are You As Stiff As a Board When You Try to Get Up From a Chair? Have You Run Out of Hope? How 5 lies About Low Back Pain May Keep You Hurting, Frustrated & Exhausted...Forever! New Scientific Breakthroughs Often Make Short Work of Low Back Pain...Just What Big Medical Centers and High Priced Clinics Are PRAYING You Never Figure Out On Your Own!

I’d be stupid to make such a claim if I couldn’t back it up. I hate empty promises, andI also hate the lies most folks have been told about their backs. That’s why it’s important I expose these MYTHS about back pain:

MYTH #1: Sciatica (pain down your leg) is always caused by a herniated disc! No way...even though most doctors will sell you a $3,000 MRI at the first sign of leg pain. But they don’t tell you about a 5-inch muscle in the hip that can squeeze the sciatic nerve. And it feels EXACTLY like you’ve got the worst slipped disc on earth. It’s a major discovery and... The good news is that it can be easy and inexpensive to correct! How? Just keep reading! But first, here’s a picture to show you where the pain comes from:

MYTH #2: Stiffness from Arthritis means you’re getting old...and it must be the reason for all your pain and stiffness! Not true, because thousands of folks with arthritis in their backs have absolutely NO PAIN! Then why do YOU feel like your back will snap if you bend forward or twist too fast? Because the truth is: Your stiffness may be caused by a hidden, even more dangerous problem than arthritis, and it can lead to a hip replacement! You see, most folks believe that something mysterious (like maybe an “arthritis fairy”?) waved a

wand over them, and they’re cursed... doomed to suffer forever. But did you know that many arthritis problems are CAUSED by a combination of unseen imbalances in the spine and surrounding muscles? It’s the most common cause of hip replacements but not that hard to correct if we catch it in time. It’s like the tires on your car... If the alignment is off just a teeny-weeny bit, at first you don’t notice, but over a few thousand miles you start to see signs of wear...that is, if you’re lucky enough to catch it before a flat on the freeway ruins your day. In your spine, you’re lucky if you catch untreated imbalances before they ruin your spine! How to fix them? Just look at Myth #3.

MYTH #3: Your Back is “OUT”! Sure, that’s exactly how it feels. But guess what, we found that’s usually not the case. It sounds good, but we now know better. You see, there are 7 different reasons for that painful, locked-up and stuck feeling that causes so much misery: • • • • • • •

low-grade spasm pelvis torque and tension imbalance of hips fallen or dropped arches stiff vertebra joint adhesions in leg muscle pinched nerve

It’s NOT just your spine, and it’s NOT just your muscles. As a matter of fact, if one of the major muscles that stabilize the spine is partly spasmed, a “2nd stringer” will have to carry the load. But this is a serious problem... It’s like having your plumber doing all the dangerous electrical work! Sure, he may get it done, and it may work at first, but how long until there’s a fire? Or your back locks up? Which leads me to our next myth:

MYTH #4: “It’s Only a Muscle!” Boy, it’s scary how many people think muscle

problems are no big deal. Unfortunately, tight, bound-up, and spasmed or tight muscles can wear out joints faster than you can say, “Charley Horse”!

schedule. I had this pain for years and before I came to Strotheide I thought it was just a part of getting older, but discovered it doesn’t have to be.” —Dan O’Leary

That’s why it’s important to examine the spine AT THE SAME TIME as the muscles that control it. It’s also why we’ve had such outrageous success with even the worst backs at Strotheide Chiropractic™. Because we deal with BOTH the spine and muscles at the same time. We have spine doctors (chiropractors) and muscle professionals (therapists) and together they deliver an outstanding way to help “bad backs”. This ties in to Myth #5 and the diagram:


MYTH #5: “Muscle Relaxants” will help your muscles heal! Goodgrief, NO!

Vice-like...constantly locked down tight!


Shooting...vicious but short lived

Aching from 1-5 years

Chronic pain for over 5 years

Your muscles tighten up for a reason, and muscle relaxants are like turning back the clock on a timebomb... you know it’s still going to blow up! Sure, you may feel better now, but you’ll pay later...and pay “in spades”!

Local organization highlights a problem that puts St. Louis in the national top 20 By SHANNON IGNEY On a daily basis, people are concealed, bought, relocated and sold throughout the United States. The majority are young women sold for sex acts; some – both men and women – are sold for labor. The existence and problem of human trafficking is an issue many feel exists only in poor countries, big cities and corrupt governments. Unfortunately, the harsh reality of statistics tells a different story. According to government data, the state of Missouri, and St. Louis and St. Charles counties, are at the top of the list when it comes to incidents of human trafficking, with St. Louis ranking in the top 20. The Ballwin-Chesterfield Chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has made it a top priority to bring the topic to life and communicate its devastating effects on local communities. At its October meeting, the AAUW hosted a panel of local law enforcement and advocates leading the fight against human trafficking in the metro St. Louis region. Cindy Malott, supervisor of the YWCA St. Louis Regional Sexual Assault Center; Sgt. Adam Kavanaugh, supervisor of special investigations for the St. Louis County Police Department; and Lt. Christopher Mateja, St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department and Missouri Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force leader, took part in the presentation. “We can all pretend there is no crime in our county,” said Erlaine Eltomi, vice president of programs for the AAUW, “but the crime of human trafficking is serious, and it is happening here.” “We know that international human trafficking takes place,” Malott said, “but it is important to note that it happens here. We are at the intersection of violence and domestic sex trafficking.” She implored the women of the AAUW to “look beneath the surface” when it comes to human trafficking in the area. As a national organization, the AAUW is dedicated to the protection and empowerment of women. As an organization, it has taken an active role in the fight against human trafficking nationwide. Locally, the Ballwin-Chesterfield chapter (, led by Eltomi and Karen Francis, has chosen during the 2013-2014 session to highlight unnerving trends threatening women’s safety. According to Eltomi, the Ballwin-Chesterfield chapter first learned of the issue of human trafficking and its impact in St. Louis while attending a regional conference in Oklahoma City, Okla., in June 2012. As a result, the chapter has taken the lead in presenting programs on human traf-

ficking for its branch members and invited members of the organization’s other five branches as well as community members. “Informing the community continues to be our main focus since people are not aware of the issue,” Francis said. Members of the branch attend monthly outreach meetings of the Rescue and Restore Coalition, recently distributed informational materials at the International Festival, were actively involved in the decision surrounding the informational billboard regarding Human Trafficking on I-70 and Salisbury, and currently are pursuing a collaboration to expand the coalition into St. Charles County. AAUW is highlighted as the major organizer for “Human Trafficking – A Challenge to Action,” the inaugural program of Life Long Learning @ UMSL on Nov. 8.


Human trafficking in the simplest of terms is slavery. It occurs in two forms, sexual and labor. The legal definition, coined in 2000 by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) states “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision or obtaining of a person for purpose of a commercial sex act in which the sex is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age (sex trafficking),” or “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery (labor trafficking).” The most important elements of the definition are force, fraud and coercion. Force can be implemented via physical restraint or harm including physical confinement, beatings, rape and worse. Fraud ranges from anything as simple as a promise of a job, often along the lines of a modeling career, to the promise of love and commitment. Coercion is multifaceted. It is highly manipulative and often includes threats of violence, against the victim as well as loved ones. In addition, it includes elements of brainwashing and isolation that take place over a period of time. However, if a victim is younger than 18 years of age, those elements do not have to be present to be classified human trafficking. Transportation across state lines or country borders need not take place in order for human trafficking to occur. The simple act of selling a person against his or her will for an act, sexual or otherwise, denotes See HUMAN TRAFFICKING, page 50

HUMAN TRAFFICKING, from page 48 human trafficking. Some examples of human trafficking victimization include: • Involuntary servitude in marriage. Traffickers force their spouses to perform services and labor, such as domestic work, working at family businesses, or sex work. It is often accompanied by heavy emotional and physical abuse. • Forced prostitution and sex work. Individuals, most often girls ages 14-17, are recruited by traffickers feigning love interest in them. The cases may involve fraudulent courtship, sexual assault, and then a distinct pattern of domestic violence to control or convince the victims to engage in sex work. • Forced labor. Individuals are trafficked by family members and friends (besides intimate partners) into forced labor such as restaurant work, sales work and janitorial work.


According to the Department of Justice, St. Louis has been recognized as an “intense trafficking jurisdiction.” In addition, Kansas City and St. Louis are tied with Los Angeles and New York, not as a result of the number of victims, but because the Western District (Kansas City) was one of the first areas in the country to prosecute human trafficking cases and has been extremely aggressive in prosecuting those who advertise sex services online. The western side of the state isn’t alone. This year, the Eastern District of Missouri is increasing its efforts against the fight against human trafficking. The St. Louis County Police Department, St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department and the St. Louis RESTeam (Rescue Service Team) are working together to serve victims and enhance the prosecution of human trafficking crimes in the Eastern District of Missouri, after earning a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Justice. The grant, named the Enhanced Collaborative Model to Combat Human Trafficking, was established in 2010 and awarded to six applicant groups across the United States this year. “Trafficking is nothing new,” Kavanaugh said, “however, the identification and prosecution is. This grant has helped us train our personnel to teach them what to look for and to change perceptions, both in law enforcement and the public because the current perception is that women make the choice, which just isn’t the case more often than not.” Although trafficking often includes prostitution, it is important to understand that the victims, mostly girls ages 14-17, are forced and coerced into the situation and are therefore not prostitutes; by definition, they have been prostituted. The girls rarely take part in the exchange of money and rarely profit from the sale. “Over the last four years, my job is no

longer about catching the girls and putting them in jail,” Kavanaugh said. “Today, my job is about protecting the girls and arresting the traffickers that put them in the situation in the first place.” According to the Polaris Project, a leading organization in the global fight against human trafficking and modern-day slavery, there is no one consistent face of a trafficker. Traffickers identified may include pimps, small families or businesses, looseknit decentralized criminal networks and international organized criminal syndicates. “In my view, the Internet has facilitated these crimes,” Mateja said. “Sites like Craigslist, Backpage and other social networking sites are where they look for vulnerable victims. These traffickers work differently than the pimps in the movies. They start online romantic relationships with victims and take total control of their lives from there.” In addition to leads his team gets locally, Mateja said the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children sends his office hundreds of leads each year. Human trafficking is an enterprise that exists on the principles of supply and demand, and demand is high in both St. Louis County and St. Charles County. “Yesterday’s drug dealers are today’s Johns,” Kavanaugh said. “The punishment and fines for getting caught are much less severe than for dealing drugs. Not to mention, it is a lucrative business for them.”


Prior to the enactment of the TVPA in 2000, there were no laws on the books to prosecute traffickers or aid trafficking victims. However, since its inception, many jurisdictions have started to prosecute human trafficking crimes. Since 2008, there have been 36 trafficking convictions in Missouri, and many more cases are on the books. But it’s not enough for law enforcement to be working on solutions. As the involvement of the AAUW indicates, West County residents can also play a role. “Talk to young people about what healthy relationships look like,” Malott said. “Also encourage healthy self-esteem. Traffickers focus on recruiting vulnerable women and girls. Many domestic sex trafficking victims I have worked with have been sexually molested in earlier youth and many do not have strong support systems although, that is not always the case.” According to Polaris Project, hundreds of thousands U.S. citizen minors are estimated to be at risk of commercial sexual exploitation. Finally, be observant. If you think you have come into contact with a victim of human trafficking, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at (888) 3737888. The NHTRC can help you identify and coordinate with local organizations that protect and serve trafficking victims.

By SUZANNE CORBETT Pumpkins, the poster veggie for fall, seem to be everywhere this time of year. They prompt cravings for pumpkin pie and have become the star ingredient in many stews, soups and other savory autumn dishes. The popularity of pumpkin is not surprising when one considers its unique flavor and subtle, natural sweetness that lends itself so well to sweet and savory dishes alike. That is especially true when using fresh pumpkin, which provides unparalleled taste to recipes calling for its flesh to be grated, mashed, or even cut into chunks for slow roasting around a pork loin or turkey. Those wanting to try cooking fresh pumpkin must act before the local supply vanishes, so it would be wise to stock up. Pumpkins store well for a few months when placed in a cool, dry dark place, such as a basement or garage. For longer storing, they can be precooked, pureed and frozen. Preparing fresh pumpkin pulp/puree is easy. Cut pumpkins in half, and scrape out the seeds and stringy fibers. Place cut side down in a shallow baking dish. Add about 1/2-inch water to the baking pan. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes, or until pumpkin is fork tender. Remove from oven, and cool. Scrape pulp from the peeling and mash or puree using a hand blender or food processor. The puree is ready for freezing or for use in any recipe. Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A and is a good source of vitamins C, E and K along with the carotenoid beta-carotene. It is a good source of fiber and minerals, including magnesium, potassium and iron. Even its seeds have value, as they seem to have an anti-inflammatory effect and may even help protect against prostate cancer and osteoporosis. So when cleaning pumpkins, consider saving the seeds for toasting and tossing in a salad or eating as a healthy snack. The following recipes are simple to prepare – perfect for a busy holiday season. Savory Pumpkin Soufflé 1 15-ounce can pure pumpkin puree 3 eggs 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup Swiss cheese Kosher salt and pepper to taste 1 bulb garlic, roasted and mashed 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves 1/2 cup panko crumbs Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, combine the pumpkin, eggs, cream and Swiss cheese. Pulse until just blended. Season with salt and pepper; add roasted garlic, and pulse a few more seconds to blend. Pour into a lightly buttered au gratin or shallow baking dish. Combine Parmesan, thyme and panko crumbs, and sprinkle over top of pumpkin. Bake for 25-30 min-

utes, until pumpkin slightly puffs and topping is browned. (Makes 8 servings) Cream of Pumpkin Soup 2 tablespoons butter or extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 cup finely chopped white onions 1 cup finely chopped leeks 1 cup finely chopped celery 2 cups pumpkin puree 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic 6 cups chicken stock 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage 1 cup cream or half and half Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste Tabasco sauce to taste In a large kettle, heat butter over a mediumhigh heat, and add the onions. When onions are translucent, stir in leeks and celery. Saute the vegetables until soft and celery is tender. Add pumpkin and garlic; cook for a few minutes to blend flavors. Add the stock and sage. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add the cream and heat through. Adjust to taste with salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce. (Makes 8 servings) Pasta with Creamy Pumpkin Sauce 1 cup pine nuts or chopped walnuts 1 pound bow tie pasta 1/4 cup butter 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots 2 cloves garlic, pressed 1 tablespoon fresh minced sage leaves 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree Salt and pepper to taste 1 cup mascarpone cheese 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese Chopped chives for garnish Place pine nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat, and toss until they turn light brown. Remove from skillet, cool, and set aside. In a large stockpot, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving a cup of the pasta water. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium high heat; sauté shallots, garlic and sage until shallots are softened. Place mixture in a food processor with the pumpkin, and pulse few seconds to smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Pour pumpkin mixture into empty pasta pot. Heat over low to medium heat until hot. Add cheeses. Rinse pasta in hot water, drain, and stir into sauce. If sauce is too thick, thin with some reserved pasta water. Place on a platter, and sprinkle with pine nuts and chives. (Makes 6-8 servings)

‘Dinette dining’ is the specialty at Letty Lou’s Cafe By SUZANNE CORBETT Ask Letty Lou’s Café owner Lisa Bax to describe her Wildwood eatery, and she’ll tell you what it is not. Letty Lou’s is not a diner, nor is it a chic European café. Letty Lou’s is different. It is retro dining best described as “dinette dining,” complete with a counter, low- and hightop seating and a solid menu of American classics. “That’s what we are – a dinette serving uncomplicated, simple food for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” said Bax, who opened Letty Lou’s more than two years ago at the intersection of Strecker and Clayton roads. The Letty Lou’s menu is based on family and classic recipes that Bax has given her own special twist. Many of Bax’s creations often are featured as menu specials, which tend to become customer favorites. “We run different specials every day. Some of those specials, people would ask for again and again, so instead of running them as specials over and over, we put them on our menu,” said Bax explaining the recent expansion of the menu, which now includes 21 new items plus breakfast all day, every day. Breakfast has become a big addition, thanks to such specialties as create-your-own omelets and burritos, and fun plates, such as Hole in the Head (egg in a frame of

toast) and the Dieter’s Dream Bowl filled with scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon and cheese smothered in sausage gravy – all the things dieters dream of having while on a diet. “Pancakes are very popular, and during the season, we have pumpkin pancakes,” Bax noted. “We make our pancake batter from scratch and add pumpkin and a big handful of our homemade candied pecans. It’s so good – people love them.” While the Letty Lou’s menu sports a wellrounded selection of appetizers, salads, burgers and wraps, the custom-made sandwiches are a menu standout. One fan favorite is the Philly Steak Sandwich, which is piled with thinly sliced roast beef, layered with sautéed onions Breakfast all day long, lunch, dinner, curbside carryout and catering are and green bell peppers and topped with cream offered at Letty Lou’s Café, open seven days a week. cheese – a nice twist to the usual processed yellow cheese used in Philadelphia. cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on white toast).
