road, and keep pretending that “Medicare as we know it” would continue on indefinitely, if it were not for people who just want to be mean to the elderly. In both Europe and America, there are many people who get angry at those who tell them the truth that the money is just not there to sustain huge welfare state programs indefinitely. But that anger might be better directed at those who lied to them by promising them benefits that were inherently unsustainable. Neither Social Security nor Medicare has ever had enough assets to cover its liabilities. Very simply, there has never been enough money put aside to do what the government promised to do. These systems operate on what their advocates like to call a “pay as you go” basis. That is, the younger generation pays in money that is used to cover the cost of benefits for the older generation. This is the kind of financial pyramid scheme that got Charles Ponzi put in prison in the 1920s and got Bernie Madoff put in prison in our times. A private annuity cannot play these financial games without its executives risking the fate of Ponzi and Madoff. That is why proposed Social Security and Medicare reforms would allow young people to put their money somewhere where the money they pay in would be put aside specifically for them, not used as at present to pay older people’s pensions, with anything left over being used for whatever else politicians feel like spending the money on. It is today’s young people who are going to be left holding the bag when they reach retirement age and discover that all the money they paid in is long gone. It is today’s young people who are going to be dumped over a cliff when they reach retirement age, if nothing is done to reform entitlements. Yet the young seem not to be nearly as alarmed as the elderly, who have no real reason to fear. Try reconciling that with the belief that human beings are rational.

Entitlement reforms For those of us who like to believe that human beings are rational, trying to explain what happens in politics can be a real challenge. For example, that segment of the population that has the least to fear from a reform of Medicare or Social Security is the most fearful – namely, those already receiving Medicare or Social Security benefits. It is understandable that people heavily dependent on these programs would fear losing their benefits, especially after a lifetime of paying into these programs. But nobody in his right mind has even proposed taking away the benefits of those who are already receiving them. Yet opponents of reforming these programs have managed repeatedly to scare the daylights out of seniors with wild claims and television ads such as one showing someone – who looks somewhat like Paul Ryan – pushing an elderly lady in a wheelchair toward a cliff and then dumping her over. There are people who take seriously such statements as those by President Barack Obama that Republicans want to “end Medicare as we know it.” Let’s stop and think, if only for the novelty of it. If you make any change in anything, you are ending it “as we know it.” Does that mean that everything in the status quo should be considered to be set in concrete forever? If there were not a single Republican, or none who got elected to any office, arithmetic would still end “Medicare as we know it,” for the simple reason that the money in the till is not enough to keep paying for it. The same is true of Social Security. The same has been true of welfare state programs in European countries that are currently struggling with both financial crises and riots in the streets from people who feel betrayed by their governments. They have in fact been betrayed by their politicians, who have promised them things that there was not enough money to pay for. That is the basic problem in the United States as well. We are not yet Greece, but we are not exempt from the same rules of arithmetic that eventually caught up with Greece. We just have a little more time. The only question is whether we will use that time to make politically difficult changes or whether we will just kick the can down the

l ette r s t o t h e e d i t o r Random thoughts

To the Editor: I am one reader that thoroughly enjoys Thomas Sowell’s editorials, unlike Mr. Betley whose letter (Aug. 15 edition of MRN) sought to disparage Mr. Sowell’s logic. Unfortunately his letter does not dispute the logic. There is a book published called “Who Ate MY Cheese.” I suggest Mr. Betley read it. One point in his letter was that “perhaps we just need the right government intervention.” Any serious, objective student of history knows there is no such thing. The Federal Government was originally charged with providing necessities, not good outcomes. Some of these necessities were a military for the protection of the citizens and a postal system. The military has become an economic engine in the form of various military contractors and contracts. Increased military spending stimulates the economy, but, alas, results in the proverbial $50 hammer. The increase and decrease in troop strength has become a political pawn in the military spending game. Unfortunately, the citizens of this nation have been bamboozled by concepts of progressivism for most of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. The propagandists soon realized that citizens can be manipulated by appealing to good feeling and not logic. Tell a lie often enough and it becomes true. Look at Nazi Germany in the last century. The intelligentia of our country looked at Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy as the ideals until the beginning of WWII. Suddenly axis powers were evil incarnate, but the majority of our leaders still espoused the theory. They just thought they were smarter and more controlled. The Federal budget and necessarily taxes have been on a steady increase. All on the premise of “a chicken in every pot” promise. The promises are never delivered, because people always want more “free” stuff and the politicians promise to deliver if given more power and money. And we fools keep allowing this to happen. St. Peters residents recently agreed to a tax increase to help stormwater issues and take care of parks. I have to ask, “How many parks does St. Peters need?” I have been around long enough to remember when this city had and annual automobile sticker program and our politicians were going to eliminate the bother of renewing every year with a tax on automobile sales. I could have paid for the city stickers for everyone in my subdivision with the sales tax on autos that I have purchased since the city did us this favor. I only hope that someday the citizens wake

up to the fact that the political subdivisions from local to federal will never have enough money to satisfy them or the citizens who benefit from policies without contributing. Look at Europe, who for years has been held up as an ideal for the USA by the very smart people. It is people like Mr. Sowell who point to the fallacy of the road we are on with logic and a sense of history and not the failed promises of equality of outcome rather than opportunity.

Veterans job?

To the Editor: When it involves Vietnam veterans, some (not all) of our legislators turn a deaf ear. Those who do understand our health problems do try to help. They are the minority. I speak for Navy Blue Water Sailors, as well as some Air Force and Fleet Marines. These veterans of the forsaken Vietnam War did not have boots on the ground. For the most part, these veterans are not eligible for Veterans Affairs (VA) Health Care or Compensation for Agent Orange presumptive exposure. Who is doing the job of some legislators? John Bury, US Navy, retired, John Rossie, US Navy veteran, Susie Belanger, wife of a US Navy veteran, Heather Bowser, daughter of an US Army veteran, and Kelly Derricks, daughter of a US Air Force veteran. We are advocates for the passage of the Agent Orange bills. We are just a few of many who are involved, yet, we advocates take on the job that some legislators fail to do. Is it fair for us to seek meetings with members of Congress and Senate and plead the needs for Vietnam veterans? Is it fair to continue to ask the American people to write to their legislators to do their job and pass House Bill HR-3612 and Senate Bill S.1629? We ask for these bills to restore VA health care and compensation disability. We Vietnam veterans who are sick with diseases caused by Agent Orange dioxin poisoning are doomed, unless those bills are passed. Is this our death sentence for serving our country? Is this the legacy we are to leave our children and grand children? We advocates understand veterans issues are not the only items our legislators must deal with. Is it fair to say, we who served deserve to receive fair and equitable priority? I ask the American people once again to support us. Write the Congress and Senate. Urge them to pass the aforementioned bills. John Bury U.S. Navy-retired

An address for the future Should Mitt Romney win the presidential election, we have the perfect speech for his inaugural address. He might consider: That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost; jobs shed; businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly; our schools fail too many; and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet. These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Less measurable but no less profound is a sapping of confidence across our land – a nagging fear that America’s decline is inevitable, and that the next generation must lower its sights. Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America – they will be met. On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics. We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness. In reaffirming the greatness of our nation, we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of shortcuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted – for those who prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things – some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in

their labor, who have carried us up the long, rugged path toward prosperity and freedom. For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of a new life. For us, they toiled in sweatshops and settled the West; endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth. For us, they fought and died, in places like Concord and Gettysburg; Normandy and Khe Sahn. Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked until their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction. This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions – that time has surely passed. Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America. For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act – not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth. We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do. Yes, this would be a good speech for Mitt Romney. It pretty much summarizes where we are today as a country. The only problem is this was taken directly from Barack Obama’s inaugural address in 2009. We can’t help but wonder what went wrong.

News Br iefs Cottleville CFPD Nine-year-old Hunter Robertson was recognized at the Cottleville Fire Protection District meeting on Aug. 28 for his life saving efforts on July 5. Hunter ran for help and called 911 when his grandmother Jane Hanke was pinned between a wall and her minivan. Hanke had just loaded her four grandchildren — including Hunter — into her minivan. After the children climbed in and Hanke put the minivan in reverse, one of the younger children asked for help with a seat belt. Hanke thought she put the vehicle in park when she got out of the car to help the child. When she shut the door, the minivan rolled backward, pinning her between the vehicle and the wall. Hunter jumped into action trying to put the van in park, unable to do so he quickly ran to a neighbor’s house to get help and call 911. “Hunter is an example of how important it is for us to teach our kids to stay calm under pressure, and to do the right thing,” said Assistant Fire Chief Scott Frietag. “As Hunter said during his award presentation, he learned to act from his parents, firefighters who came to his school, and his Uncle Rusty who is a captain with our district. This situation underscores the importance of ongoing safety education for kids.” Hanke sustained moderate injuries and remained hospitalized for nearly nine days. Without Hunter’s quick actions, emergency officials said her injuries could have been significantly worse.

Weldon Spring No parking without pass The Weldon Spring Board of Aldermen officially made it illegal for non-handicapped drivers to park in a handicapped

parking spot at its Aug. 23 meeting. A resident called in a complaint about a person parking illegally in a handicapped parking spot, but when police arrived no ticket was issued. “He couldn’t give him a ticket because there wasn’t an ordinance in Weldon Spring,” said Mayor Don Licklider. The board rectified the problem, and now a person found illegally parking in a handicap spot will face a fine between $200 and $500.

St. Charles County Beware of scam The St. Charles County Recorder’s office is warning residents to beware of a company offering an official copy of a home owner’s deed — for a much higher cost. Recently, property owners in St. Charles County received a letter from Secured Document Services of Washington, D.C., offering an official, certified copy of their deed for $85 or more. Companies such as this simply obtain the certified copies from the Recorder’s Office for a nominal fee and then mail it to the homeowner while charging them an outrageous fee, said Barbara Hall, recorder of deeds. This private company’s offer costs significantly more than obtaining certified copies of deeds directly from the St. Charles County Recorder’s Office. Fees are $2 for the first page, $1 for each additional page, plus $1 for the certification. Since most property deeds are only one or two pages the cost for directly obtaining certified copies from the Recorder will usually cost less than $5.

NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM Division of Public Health’s Immunization Clinic offers three programs for children and adults. The Vaccines for Children (VFC) program, the Children’s Immunization Program (CHIP) and the Adult Immunization Program (AIP) provide free or affordably priced vaccinations for residents. “Through these programs for children and adults, the Division of Public Health seeks to make immunizations readily available within our community,” said Division of Public Health Director Hope Woodson. “Since preventing diseases before they occur is much less expensive than treatment, an up-to-date shot record helps lower health care costs for all of us.” Through a partnership with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, the Immunization Clinic provides free shots to those participating in the Vaccines for Children program. Those eligible to participate in the Vaccines for Children program are children who: have no health insurance; are covered by Medicaid; are Native American or Alaskan Native; or have health insurance that does not cover immunizations. The CHIP and AIP plans offer near-cost immunizations to those ineligible for the Vaccines for Children program.

Scouting for girls The Girl Scouts are looking for new members in St. Charles County. The Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri will host recruitment nights throughout St. Charles County starting in September as an opportunity for girls to experience Girl Scout activities. As a Girl Scout, girls will be able to participate in traditional activities like the Girl Scout cookie program and camping in addition to programs that build self-esteem and teach girls to live a healthy lifestyle. STEM programs introduce girls to a variety of sci-

ence, technology, engineering and mathematics activities that are designed to be fun in order to pique interest in those fields. Recruitment nights take place through October throughout 18 districts that span from the St. Louis metropolitan area to Hannibal/Kirksville and Ste. Genevieve. For more information about where a recruitment night is taking place, visit www. and click ‘Join.’ Recruitment nights are divided by districts.

St. Charles Best place to live The city of St. Charles is one of the top 100 “Best Places To Live” according to Money Magazine. The nationally known journal ranked the city 71st on its overall list. “We are so proud to be recognized once again for being a great community for residents and businesses,” said Mayor Sally Faith. “This clearly demonstrates our plan for growth, affordability and investment is working.” In citing the community for its numerous assets, Money Magazine states, “History buffs may know St. Charles as the start and end point of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Wine aficionados know it as home to several award-winning wineries, like Little Hills Winery and Sugar Creek Winery & Vineyards. But to most locals it’s simply a nice place to raise kids, with great schools, very little crime, and reasonably priced homes. Extra bonus: St. Charles County residents pay some of the lowest taxes in the country, according to the Tax Foundation.” “The magazine’s noted accolades say it all,” said Faith. “St. Charles is a great place to visit, work, raise a family, get an education and pay less taxes…who could want more than that?” Additionally, Money Magazine identi-

Thieves attempt multiple car thefts Two St. Louis teens have been charged in connection to an attempted car theft in St. Charles on Aug. 19. Police said multiple subjects were reported tampering with vehicles on the lot of Pundmann Ford located at 2727 West Clay at about 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 19. Upon arrival of police the subjects scattered and fled the area. Two of the subjects who fled crossed I-70 and were later captured by other responding officers. The two subjects taken into custody were Anthony L. Smith, 18, of the 9700 block of Edgewood in St. Louis and Dante R. Keller, 18, of the 4300 block of Blair in St. Louis. Smith was charged with accessory to burglary in the second degree and Keller was charged with second degree burglary. Both are currently being held in the St. Charles County Jail with a $50,000 cash-only bond. The other subjects made good their escape and are the subject of ongoing investigations. Investigation at the scene revealed that the suspects had burglarized the used car office making off with the keys to multiple vehicles. The suspects then lined several of the vehicles up near a gate in preparation for a getaway. Police said their efforts were stymied when the truck they used in an attempt to knock down several metal and concrete security posts set in the ground failed to knock the posts over. It is believed the suspects then attempted to use a full size van to ram a gate but were interrupted by the arrival of police. Anyone with additional information in reference to this incident or similar incidents is requested to contact the St. Charles Police Department at 949-3300 or can do so anonymously at 949-3333.

Wentzville Former teacher’s aid charged Victoria Reinke, of the 600 block of Aster Lane in O’Fallon, was a teacher’s aide at Timberland High School when the district received a complaint in late March alleging Reinke’s involvement with a 16-yearold student. The involvement allegedly occurred over a five-month period. “As soon as the Wentzville School District learned about the allegations of misconduct, Mrs. Reinke was immediately placed on unpaid leave and the district reported the matter to local law enforcement and the Children’s Division of the Missouri Department of Social Services for further investigation,” said Matt Deichmann, community relations with the Wentzville School District, in an email. Following a four-month investigation,

Reinke was charged with two counts of statutory rape in the second degree, and one count of sexual contact with a student. According to police, none of the reported acts occurred during school hours or on school property and no additional victims were involved. The WSD Board of Education has accepted her resignation in lieu of termination. “The district will continue to deal with this personnel matter in accordance with district policy and state law to ensure the protection of our students, which is always of the highest priority in all of our schools,” Deichmann said. A cash only bond was set at $20,000 with no 10 percent authorized.

Restaurant destroyed in fire A four-alarm fire destroyed a Chinese restaurant in Wentzville on Aug. 27. The Kwan Yin restaurant located at 1603 West Pearce Boulevard was a total loss after firefighters were able to extinguish the fire after several heated hours. “At this point, the cause of the fire is still under investigation,” said Wentzville Fire Chief Randy Bornhop. Bornhop said the restaurant’s burglar alarm was tripped when the fire caused a window to break. Wentzville police were first to the scene at 6:35 a.m. when it was discovered to be a fire instead of a burglary. Several fire departments joined the Wentzville Fire District and were able to get the fire under control at about 10 a.m. Fire crews remained on the scene until after 3 p.m. to ensure the fire was out.

O’Fallon One of the ‘best’ cities For the fourth consecutive time, the city of O’Fallon has been named one of the country’s “Best Places to Live,” according to Money Magazine’s list of America’s 100 best cities. O’Fallon ranked 39th on the 2012 list of cities with a population of 50,000-300,000. “We are truly humbled to again be on this prestigious list,” said Mayor Bill Hennessy. “O’Fallon is a wonderful community in which to live, work and play.” In addition to Money’s previous rankings in 2006, 2008 and 2010, O’Fallon was named to’s listings of America’s Best Cities in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, and O’Fallon currently is ranked as the “Second-Safest City in America” by CQ Press.

Elhmann, along with other officials, “By having the same contractor (Fred emphasized the team effort it took to comWeber) on the projects, we were able to plete the second phase of Route 364 with better coordinate the schedule and pick up many different levels of government work-

ing together on the road project. “The engineering and the construction is the easy part,” said Ed Hassinger, MoDOT St. Louis District Engineer. The public support and the funding is the difficult part. The groups that have worked together have been phenomenal, he said. The $101 million project - of that $75 million for construction - was funded with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds, federal and state transportation funds and St. Charles County Transportation Sales Tax funds. In addition, the city of St. Peters contributed more than $2 million and relinquished right-of-way to MoDOT for a large portion of the outer roads. “This shows what you can achieve when all of those levels of government are on the same page,” Ehlmann said. “This is a proud day for our community… I’m proud to say the city of St. Peters played a role in this progress,” said St. Peters Mayor Len Pagano at the ribbon cutting ceremony. The progress may start with a few temporary speed bumps. Wilson Horn said drivers can expect to see extra congestion during rush hour at the Mid Rivers Mall Drive interchange and at the signal at Westwood as these will be the first signal-

ized intersections drivers will come to. “Our traffic engineers will be monitoring these signals and all the signalized intersections along the outer roads between Harvester and Mid Rivers to make adjustments over the next couple of months,” said Wilson Horn. The final phase of the Route 364 Page Extension will extend from Mid Rivers Mall Drive running parallel to Hwy. N to the Hwy. N and I-64 interchange. This section will be done using the Design-Build procurement method with one contractor team hired to develop the design and construct the road. This $100 million project includes federal and state transportation funds, St. Charles County road tax funds and local federal transportation funds for many of the county municipalities. The Phase 3 Route 364 project will be awarded to a contractor in spring 2013 and will be complete by the end of 2014. “This project is a great example of cooperation with the local partners to work together with funding options to build a great project for the public. With the decreasing amounts of transportation funds, this collaboration with our local partners is critically important. Now the citizens of St. Charles County can enjoy six more miles of improved roadway,” said Hassinger.

County smoking ban questions to be decided on November ballot By Michael R. Smith St. Charles County Chairperson Nancy Matheny switched her stance on the question of letting voters decide whether the county will be smoke free. Her tie-breaker vote made a 4-2 decision to put the measure on the Nov. 6 ballot. County Executive Steve Ehlmann said he would sign the bill, ensuring voters will decide the issue. Voters will consider two proposals on the smoking issue. “Yes” on both propositions will enact a smoking ban, and then allow certain exceptions to it. Both proposals, if approved, would become amendments to the County Charter. The first question for voters is whether smoking should or should not be allowed in public places and work spaces throughout the county. If it passes the ban would cover all incorporated and unincorporated county areas beginning July 1, 2013. If approved the proposal also allows local municipalities to “ban smoking in additional spaces or venues.” The second question applies only if voters enact a ban, because it spells out

specific exceptions. If both questions pass, smoking could continue at Ameristar Casino as well as other places where employees and patrons are over 21 years old. Private clubs, fraternal groups, and 20 percent of hotel rooms would also be exempt. Bill sponsor Joe Cronin (District 1) said second-hand smoke is a public health concern. He also noted that a smoking ban “is an important, controversial issue.” That’s why “it needs to go to the voters.” He said that while he was trying to address the health concern he also wanted to create a bill that would work for business people and select groups. “I tried to make something that would be fair to everybody,” Cronin said. Cronin said Ameristar Casino has competition across the Missouri River from casinos which are exempt from St. Louis County’s no-smoking law. Also, because of the age requirement in his proposal St. Charles County bars could decide whether they wanted to be smoke-free or not. Matheny said she had voted against an

earlier version of the bill but voted for this one because council members had worked “many hours together to make a level playing field” if the measure passes. Some opponents disagree about creating a level playing field for small businesses while others say the ban would be an encroachment on individual liberty. Carol Gold, owner of the South 94 Bistro in St. Charles, said during the public comments that the ban “will have an affect on my business.” She said she knew of nine businesses that closed in O’Fallon as a result of that city’s adoption of a non-smoking law. “If this is such a large concern for public safety,” she said, then advocates “should take it to the state legislature for a statewide ban.” Larry Williams, Commander of Amvets Post 106 in St. Peters, said, “This isn’t about smoking. It’s about personal choice.” He added that if public health was the concern then the bill should apply to every establishment, including Ameristar. Council members Joe Brazil (District 2) and Jerry Daugherty (District 6) voted

against the bill. Brazil stated that he doesn’t smoke but said of the bill, “It’s not right. We’re going to pick on the smokers? Who’s next?” Another attempt to put a smoking ban on the November ballot failed on Aug. 8. Ameristar Casino had funded a petition drive to put a similar measure before voters in order to exempt itself from such a ban. The drive failed because it didn’t get enough valid signatures to place a measure before voters. Rich Chrismer, head of the county election board, said that United for Missouri — a group collecting signatures for the petition — needed 18,535 signatures, turned in about 22,000, but that more than 8,000 were declared invalid because they were not from registered voters, addresses were incorrect, duplicate signatures were discovered, and other problems. After the subtractions there were “insufficient signatures to get on the November ballot,” Chrismer said. Subsequently, he received a message from the group’s director, Carl Bearden, making a request to withdraw the petition.

O’Fallon to enact law on ‘meth abatement,’ force toxic clean up By Mary Ann O’Toole Holley O’Fallon city officials have begun the process to pass a measure that would allow the city to demand toxic cleanup of homes where methamphetamine is found or produced. Council members are expected to approve the bill into ordinance this month. City Administrator Keith Riesberg said the bill was spurred after O’Fallon Police found several “meth labs” in area residences in recent months. The city also established protocols for the cleanup of methamphetamine contamination and sets standards for identifying dangerous levels of toxic chemicals and residue associated with the presence and manufacture of methamphetamine. Under the proposed law, a home, apartment or condominium used to manufacture or store methamphetamine and/or chemicals to make methamphetamine would be tested and professionally decontaminated by a qualified contractor. The owner would then be required to provide proof of the cleanup to the city  before the residence could be reoccupied. At a meeting held in early August, a member of the St. Charles County Regional Drug Task Force said chemicals used in meth production can linger in a home long

after production has stopped. “The chemicals used in manufacturing methamphetamine are all chemicals found in our homes, but when you mix these chemicals together in ways not intended, you can create toxic gasses,” said the Task Force Member. “For example, mixing bleach and ammonia creates a very toxic gas, and the same happens with meth labs.” The Task Force Member, part of a collaborative group of several law enforcement agencies, conducts surveillance and investigations into drug cases. He was not identified because he is involved in undercover investigations. “If you can picture dry ice and water, everything in the manufacture of meth is heavier than air. If you can watch meth being produced, the similar effect is happening,” the Task Force Member said. He said 85 to 90 percent of the meth labs in this area use the “shake-and-bake” method. Chemicals are put into one bottle, reacting very violently with each other as the gases flow to the floor. “The chemical reaction that remains is likely to stay a very long time,” he said. “The chemicals hit the ductwork system and pump the toxins through the house.

It’s variable, but the more meth cooked will remain on carpet and toys and other household items.” The property owner where methamphetamine was found will be allowed 20 days to contact the city to begin the cleanup process or face having utilities shut off at the residence. O’Fallon Police Chief Roy Joachimstaller said in some cases, ability to respond to the city will likely be affected by whether the owner of the house was taken into custody. It would be almost impossible for someone held in jail to contact anyone, he said. “I don’t have any personal reason to feel sorry for someone doing meth, but if they’re confined and can’t get out, they may not be able to contact a certified cleanup professional,” Joachimstaller said. Councilman Jim Pepper suggested a 10-day response time, adding that if someone is doing business like this, “tough.” “I have no feelings at all for people who engage in this,” Pepper said. “Throw the key away.” Councilman John Haman said the reason the ordinance is being developed is not for protection of the violator, but for the others who may be living in the home. Riesberg said the notice will be directed

sometimes to the person who is not directly affected by the methamphetamine, such as a property owner. City Attorney Kevin O’Keefe said there has to be evidence that the structure is contaminated before any action will be taken. “The woman who was allegedly walking around with that shake-and-bake meth in her purse at Walmart would not necessarily mean the building was contaminated,” O’Keefe said. “We don’t require decontamination until there is verification of contamination,” Joachimstaller said. “Building inspectors are not called unless there is suspicion of contamination in a structure. In the types of cases where police are at a location with meth in a vehicle not inside a house, building inspectors would not be called. There has to be reason to believe there is contamination inside the building.” The council also expressed concern for the costs of cleanup borne on the owner of the building rather than the violator. O’Keefe said on almost any lease, the renter would be liable and there are grounds for a claim by the landlord against the tenant. “Causing damage other than wear and tear makes a tenant liable,” O’Keefe said.

2714 Breckenridge Industrial Court

By Michael R. Smith While smoking bans are being contemplated in St. Charles County, currently nothing is covering a situation one Cottleville-area couple says is negatively affecting their lives. Joseph and Ruth Ann “Rusty” Bohn have lived for 30 years in an unincorporated county area in the 300-block of Summer Ridge Court. Their property backs to the Tinder Box, a new smoking shop within Cottleville’s city limits and near Hwy. N and Guttermuth Road. The Tinder Box operated for 14 years in a nearby shopping center along Mid Rivers Mall Drive. In January it moved to a standalone spot owner Joe Aiello built that includes an outside patio where smokers can enjoy tobacco products from the store, drink a beer, or play bocce ball on one of the three courts. The Bohns claim that at times drifting tobacco smoke from the Tinder Box is so heavy that it prevents them from enjoying their screened-in backyard deck, even with four fans trying to disperse the smoke. Their house, 50-yards from the shop, is up a hill from the shop with leafy trees and brush between the properties. The Bohns said they aren’t trying to be

problem neighbors but just want relief. “We wouldn’t deny Joe (Aiello) his livelihood. But, we’re denied our fresh air,” said Ruth Ann Bohn. So far, they’ve discussed the problem with Aiello, Cottleville officials, St. Charles County, and federal agencies. To date, they say no one has been able to help them because there are no regulations for this type of issue. Cottleville Mayor Don Yarber said he met with the Bohns even though they are not his constituents. “I gave them my cell number and asked them to call me when they experienced heavy smoke,” Yarber said. “That was three months ago. I have not heard from them.” The Bohns remember the conversation differently: “He (Yarber) said, ‘I’ll go right over (to the Tinder Box) and call you back.’ It’s been months and we haven’t heard from him,” said Ruth Ann Bohn. A resident to his immediate east, Aiello said, complains about trespassing when his employees trim a fence line that separates the properties. Aiello said the fence is well on his side of the boundary line. Aiello said, his neighbors “don’t like it because there’s a business here and they got used to having vacant ground.”




County Election Authority head vows fight on ballot issues By Michael R. Smith Discussion at the St. Charles County Council meeting on Monday, Aug. 27, largely focused on sending two proposals to voters in November — a countywide smoking ban and changing the Sheriff’s Department to a police department. But, the council also sent other measures to voters which would amend the County Charter if approved. One county official says he will go to court to block some of the ballot proposals because language in them violates the Missouri constitution. Election Authority Director Rich Chrismer said there are multiple questions on three ballot proposals, which he said is a violation of the constitution requirement of “one issue, one title. The constitution is very specific.” Passage of the proposals presented by the county executive staff would: • Give the county executive’s office more authority over county departments; • Allow a mid-term County Council vacancy to be appointed by the county executive to avoid the expense of a special election; • Restrict county employees from accepting gifts from vendors they work with; • Require certain communications to be publicly announced by county or municipal governments; • Standardize charter language for proposed bills; • Dictate when a proposed budget is presented by the county executive; • And decide that a council vote to override a county executive’s veto is made within 30 days of the veto. County Executive Steve Ehlmann replied that the questions could be separated but said that it would increase the number of decisions for voters on an already lengthy ballot. “You can divide the question if you like,” Ehlmann told the council. “But, how many times do you want the voter to vote?” One controversial issue if approved would give the county executive office more authority over government departments The ballot language currently asks whether the county executive be given “oversight of the working conditions of all employees of the county, including the authority to investigate and take action to prevent the harassment of, gross mismanagement of, or discrimination against, employees.” St. Charles County Collector Michelle McBride said “the ballot language question is so innocent. But, it’s dangerous. It whittles away a department head’s authority.” She said that there are already ways to address the issues mentioned in the pro-

posal through human resource offices, a county personnel plan, and a merit board. “We already have three levels of protection” to deal with issues, she said. Another measure voters will be asked to decide is whether a council member can be removed after 12 absences — or six months — of unexcused council meeting absences. By phone, council member Paul Wynn (District 4) said the measure is unnecessary. He said the situation which led to the proposal was resolved when voters in his

district chose his rival in the July primary, David Hammond, as the Republican candidate for the district seat. Wynn is a civilian contractor in Afghanistan to U.S. military operations and has regularly missed council meetings as a result. In his campaign Hammond made a point that the district needs an at-home council representative. Council Chairperson Nancy Matheny (District 3) emphatically told Wynn that, “This is not about you,” and said his loss

could be attributed to his inability to campaign locally. County Executive Steve Ehlmann explained the measure was necessary to prevent a majority political party on the council from seizing all seats by not excusing minority members who may have to miss meetings because of an extended illness or other personal issues. Matheny noted that the bill’s sponsor was the only Democrat on the current council: District 6 Councilman Jerry Daugherty.

2941 Highway K | O’Fallon, MO 63368

O’Fallon’s Main Street moving into the new millennium By Mary Ann O’Toole Holley The old stoplight at I-70 and Hwy. K and Main Street in O’Fallon has been flashing for as long as most can remember, even though there was a time when the now busy intersection was the entrance to a one-horse town. Now that the once rural O’Fallon has become a thriving metropolis, the Missouri Department of Transportation and O’Fallon city officials are getting excited about construction of a “divergent diamond interchange” to send the city’s flow of traffic streaming like a child’s electric racetrack at Christmas. Resembling a figure-eight, the proposed divergent diamond interchange is expected to begin construction by 2015 or 2016, but not before MoDOT looks at the project from every angle with every option. An I-70/Hwy. K transportation corridor study was recently completed in the city analyzing as much data as possible to determine the best possible interchange update. Jeff Shupfer of Project Management said over the past couple of years the city has done studies on road projects which come with a very high price tag. Shupfer said funds are received through various agencies, and they want to make sure the benefit of a new interchange is worthwhile. Shupfer said four major studies have been undertaken, funded by the County Road Board. The I-70/ Hwy. K $10.6 million project has been reviewed, and a study was completed in 2010 because the old interchange provided poor vehicle capacity. The study cost was $100,000 of which O’Fallon paid just $10,000. “One of four options will be used to see funding. Its total price is $10.6 million,” Shupfer

said. “We initially studied over 20 items, and as part of our funding opportunities, we’ve broken it down into three projects: Ramps, Veteran’s Memorial Drive and Hwy K. The Diamond interchange will be similar to that built recently at Hwy. 270 and Dorsett Road.” Shupfer said it will remain a divergent diamond interchange, and west Terra is being proposed as an overpass bridge. Traffic would flow through to Main and Hwy. K and bicycle lanes, sidewalks and pedestrian entrances would be included. “The city has received $3.6 million from MoDOT and another $840,000; $860,000 from enhancement funds for bicycle paths, totaling $5.3 million funded from external sources,” Shupfer said. “We have also applied for $1 million from the County Road Board. That means 50 percent has been funded by external sources and by next year we hope for more funding which will cut the city’s expense even further.” Plans are to study the process further, and work is expected to be done in 2015 or 2016. Councilman Bob Howell was concerned about how much the city will get in the final decision. Shupfer said the city has full control, but MoDOT will be doing the interchange, with minor adjustments. Until precise design gets implemented, MoDOT will continue to review and make changes. “I hope MoDOT will listen to what we want to see,” said Mayor Bill Hennessy said. “I hope they listen to our suggestions and take them into account. I would say you have a good relationship with MoDOT and hopefully they will listen to our suggestions and take them into account.”

A Proud Member of the Heartland Dental Care Family


By Michael R. Smith Despite a record number of cases of West Nile Virus throughout the United States, as well as reports of cases in Missouri and Illinois, there have been none reported in St. Charles County and so public health officials here are following their normal schedule of mosquito spraying. Doug Bolnick, public information officer for the county’s Division of Public Health, says health officials here are monitoring the disease and would know if it turned up. The information “would come through the state or through hospitals,” he said. “I haven’t heard of any cases in St. Charles County.” West Nile Virus cases have been reported in Missouri and Illinois but St. Louis County hasn’t seen any cases either. However, as a preventative measure officials

there stepped up mosquito spraying to twice a day from once a day on Aug. 27. Bolnick said that St. Charles County is continuing its normal daily spraying schedule throughout the area and “spraying as needed with insecticide and Barbicide.” He said the public health department will also spray areas when citizens complain of increased mosquito activity. “We haven’t had many comments from the public.” A recent CBS News report said that 1,118 cases of West Nile Virus have been reported this year in 38 states, leading to 41 deaths — the highest number of cases in the U.S. since the first known case in 1999. Virus activity has been reported in 47 states this year. It’s thought that drought conditions throughout much of the country are contributing to the virus outbreak.

O’Fallon approves taller, bigger business signs By Mary Ann O’Toole Holley Larger signs are likely to appear now that the city of O’Fallon has given the OK for business signage up to 20 feet high with 225 square foot of display space. Shannon Gerard, assistant director of Planning and Development said the Planning and Zoning Commission reviewed and recommended approval of the change. She said city staff investigated shopping plazas with and without larger directory signs and found a direct correlation between the size of directory signage and the vacancy rates. “Using CO-STAR we’ve found that signs exceeding 12 feet in height have a vacancy rate of 6 percent, and those with signs under 12 feet in height have a vacancy rate of 29 to 30 percent,” Gerard said. “Please be aware, that may not be the only reason why a shopping center is not successful: rent could be high or traffic in the area low.” Gerard said the sign code revision includes eight revisions and 11 sections. Changes will generally affect large shopping centers. She said the new ordinance will not count the address as one of the eight allowable items shown on the sign. The size of the sign will be based upon the square footage of the business. Multi-tenant buildings are allowed one sign per store entrance. The change allows signage similar to single tenant buildings. An end cap sign will only be allowed for one business, as long as the sign doesn’t face a residence. Councilman Jim Pepper said some businesses are almost unknown because signs are so low. Gerard said the prior code restricted signs to no taller than 12 feet in height with a 150 square foot maximum sign area unless in an interchange district. The new rules allow properties of 10 acres or more to be 20 feet

high with a 225 square foot sign area. “The vote was 6-5 at Planning and Zoning and some of those five voted to deny language because they wanted to allow higher signs,” Gerard said. “At least three commissioners wanted signs to be higher.” Councilman John Haman said there is a plaza near Mid Rivers Mall Drive where the Schnucks sign is the tallest sign, which is 20-foot high. He said others are 12-foot high and all those businesses are successful. “People need to keep their eyes on the road at eye level. It’s a safety issue,” Haman said. “I understand people want advertising, but as these places redevelop and have to bring their signs closer to ground level, it will be more aesthetically pleasing. No one would be drowned out. I think what we have now is perfect.” Pepper said he respectfully disagreed. “The big thing I keep hearing about is not every one of these developers is going to go out and invest in a great big sign,” Pepper said. “What I am seeing is the other way around. We don’t want these people to think they’re driving on Manchester Road, but let the businesses be on an equal footing. Some signs promote safety. When I can see a sign down the road, I know where I’m going. These shopping centers and strip malls likely won’t put up 20 foot signs.” City Engineer David Woods said if the city allowed both, businesses would have a choice between the two. “We think the new ordinance gives more flexibility,” Woods said. “Usually it’s more beneficial to have one common sign rather than the other signs. Other businesses, such as free standing buildings, can advertise independently.” The change does not affect businesses of less than 10 acres in size. Councilmen Haman, Rick Snowden and Bob Howell, voted against the change.

St. Peters’ TIF use affirmed by court By Jeanie Seibert A years-long legal showdown was finally brought to close Aug. 28 when the Mo. Court of Appeals handed down its decision regarding Great Rivers Habitat Alliance (GRHA) vs. the city of St. Peters. The last of a long line of political and legal challenges gaveled to an end when Mo. Court of Appeals Western Dist. Presiding Judge Joseph M. Ellis with Alok Ahuja and Mark D. Pfeiffer, judges, ruled the city had broken no laws when it employed tax increment financing (TIF) in developing a 1,645-acre tract initially titled Lakeside 370. Sales tax income from the Lakeside 370

TIF district funded infrastructure construction which led to the development of 370 Lakeside Park and the Lakeside 370 Business Park. “This was tremendous news for our city and we are very pleased with the court’s decision,” said St. Peters Mayor Len Pagano. “We will continue to move forward and work to make this project an economic engine for our entire region. We may still face additional legal action but we will continue to keep our eyes on the target and will work for what is best for our region and the people who live, work and play in St. Peters and the St. Charles County area.”

Coach of the year Tony Perkins, varsity baseball coach at Francis Howell High School (FHHS), has been named as the 2012 Region 5 Diamond/ABCA High School Coach of the Year by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA). Perkins is one of eight coaches from across the United States who was selected for this honor. Perkins was raised in Rock Island, Ill., where he received various baseball honors at Rock Island Public High school. After high school, Perkins spent a year at Dickinson State College in North Dakota, where he played both football and baseball. After the year in North Dakota, Perkins transferred to Northeast Missouri State University where he was a member of the baseball team for three years and spent one year as a graduate assistant coach. He graduated from Northeast with a degree in physical education and earned his master’s in educational administration from the Univer-

NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM sity of Missouri at St. Louis in 1996. After graduation, Perkins took his first job at Brashear High School in Brashear, Mo. At Brashear, the baseball teams went 44-24 in three years under his guidance. Following his Brashear experience, Perkins accepted a job in the Francis Howell School District where he coached the freshmen team for two years at Francis Howell North (FHN) High School. From FHN, he accepted the varsity assistant job at Francis Howell High School (FHHS). While an assistant, under coach Terry Kasper, the Vikings earned three conference championships and two trips to the final four, where they finished second in 1991 and third in 1993. During the 1994-95 school year, Perkins was named the head coach of the Francis Howell Vikings. During his current 17 year reign, Perkins’ teams have garnered 12 conference titles, nine district titles, eight sectional championships, five quarterfinals championships, a fourth place finish in 1999, a second place finish in state in 1997, a second place finish in 2008 and a State Championship in 2003 and 2011. Perkins overall head coaching record is 387-186. He has sent approximately 97 players to the college ranks. He has coached six All Americans, 21 first-team all starters and 17 first-team all-metro players. In 1997, Perkins was voted the St. Louis Metropolitan Coach of the Year by a panel of his peers. He was also selected the coach of the year in 1997 by the St. Louis Major League Scouting Bureau. During the 1999, 2008, 2010, and 2011 seasons Perkins was voted Coach of the Year in the Gateway Athletic Conference by his fellow conference coaches and was selected by the BCA as the Midwest Region Coach of the year in 2011, which covers seven states. Perkins is currently the District 5 representative for the National Baseball Coaches Association, which encompasses five different states. He is also on the baseball advisory board for the Missouri State High School Activities Association.

Football players return to Joplin The Francis Howell Central (FHC) High School football team, along with head football coach Todd Berck and members of his coaching staff, took their annual team trip in late July. This year, the team and coaches decided to return to the Joplin area to assist the Joplin Football program and Joplin High School with the clean up and rebuilding process after a devastating tornado damaged the city. Joplin High School was destroyed, along with a majority of the town when a tornado touched down a year ago. The football program went to Joplin in July 2011 as part of their summer trip. And after a group vote, the team members decided to return to Joplin to assist with relief efforts again. The

coaches and team members were housed in a local church and worked for two days in various capacities. In addition, First Student donated a bus for the trip and provided a driver at no charge to the program or the school.

Wentzville Teacher named finalist Laura Parn, a teacher at Peine Ridge Elementary in the Wentzville School District, has been selected as a finalist for the 2012 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). The award is the highest recognition that a K-12 mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. “I am excited and deeply humbled to be selected,” said Parn, one of only six educators in Missouri to be chosen as a state finalist. “This is truly a shared accomplishment, and I am extremely proud of my students who worked so very hard throughout the course of the entire year and am also grateful for the support of my colleagues.” The awards are given to mathematics and science teachers from each of the 50 states and four U.S. jurisdictions. It recognizes those teachers who develop and implement a high-quality instructional program that enhances student learning. “It is important to me to help my students develop a deep understanding of mathematics, a willingness to persevere when solving difficult problems, and the confidence to reason together and discuss their ideas,” said Parn, who teaches fifth grade. The White House will announce the winners next June. Those selected for this Presidential honor will receive a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation to be used at their discretion. The PAEMST award was established by Congress in 1983, and the program authorizes the President of the United States to bestow up to 108 awards each year.

School nationally recognized Discovery Ridge Elementary in the Wentzville School District has received national recognition for a program aimed at introducing and reinforcing the school’s core values. The Character Education Partnership (CEP) has recognized Discovery Ridge for their Space Mission program, naming it a 2012 Promising Practice. The Space Mission is the school’s way


NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM of teaching students core values (respect, responsibility, and caring) and expected behaviors in all areas of the school. Throughout the year, Discovery Ridge holds at least two Space Missions. The first takes place in August to initially teach the expectations. The second Space Mission takes place in January following winter break. Discovery Ridge staff members can decide if additional Space Mission reviews are needed throughout the year. The missions involve visual reminders in all areas of the school and “Team in Training” and “Mission Accomplished” designations for each classroom. Each class begins the year as a “Team in Training.” During a mission, students practice and then discuss their progress in a class meeting format to self-assess if they are applying core values and expectations “everywhere all of the time,” thereby achieving the goal of “Mission Complete.” “Implementation of our Space Mission has created a caring and positive school climate where students are internalizing our core values and expectations,” said Discovery Ridge Principal Laura Bates. “Our goal for students is to practice the expectations and understand how to apply them to daily life and why they are necessary in our greater community.” Bates said that discipline referrals in the school are down since the implementation of the Space Mission program. “This has yielded a positive school climate in which students are achieving at high levels academically,” said Bates. This year’s winning practices include unique anti-bullying programs, service learning activities, and community outreach. “These innovative practices showcase so many creative and unique ways of dealing with challenges educators face each day” said Lisa Greeves, manager of the Promising Practices program. “CEP is proud to recognize these educators and to give them an international platform upon which to share their hard work that is having an impact across the nation and abroad.” CEP awarded 297 Promising Practices to schools, districts, and organizations from across the United States, as well as from Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, and Mexico. CEP will honor the 2012 recipients at the 19th National Forum on Character Education, to be held in Washington, DC, Nov. 1 through Nov. 3.

By Warren Mayes It will take more than a sore hamstring to keep Missouri’s T.J. Moe down. The Fort Zumwalt West graduate hurt his hamstring in June during a workout. It caused him to miss practice time last month, but barring a setback, he expected to be good to go for the Tigers’ season opener last weekend against Southeastern Louisiana. (The game was played after MRN press time.) “If we had a game two weeks ago, I’d have been playing,” Moe said after a practice in August. The 6-foot, 200-pound shifty senior receiver was a third-team selection in the Southeastern Conference coaches’ preseason poll and he is one of the team captains for the 2012 season. Moe was chosen along with senior linebacker Will Ebner, senior offensive lineman Elvis Fisher and senior linebacker Zaviar Gooden. “I like being at the top of the totem pole,” Moe said. “You’re captain, you’re a senior leader - guys listen to you. You can really lead them in a direction. And if you know what you’re doing, it’s a good place to be.” Others have noticed Moe knows what he’s doing. In addition to being named a team captain, Moe has been named to the watch list of 49 players for the Paul Hornung Award. That award honors the most

versatile player in college football. After two solid seasons, Moe is expecting a big senior campaign. Moe has led the Tigers in receptions and receiving yards in each of the last two years. In 2010, his 92 catches for 1,045 yards landed him on the All-Big 12 Conference second team. His 2011 production of 54 catches for 649 yards earned him All-Big 12 honorable mention. Coaches are quick to point out that all of Moe’s contributions are not on the stat sheet. “There isn’t a guy that works harder in practice,” said Mizzou Head Coach Gary Pinkel. “He goes 100 miles per hour every single play he’s in there. Always.” Dave Yost, the offensive coordinator for the Tigers, said, “The amount of time he puts in the weight room, the way he works on the practice field, the way he studies to get himself ready to play. It’s at the utmost, highest level you could ask from a guy.” Not bad for a guy recruited to play defense out of high school. However, that idea was pushed aside. Missouri initially planned to try Moe at safety but Moe likes being on the offensive side of the ball. “I never played a game without getting the football,” Moe said. “Ever. For me, it’s more exciting to score a touchdown than to See T.J. MOE, page 26

This year Prairie Day will be Saturday September 15th, beginning at noon. Prairie Day is a little different each year, but one thing remains the same: Families and friends can gather together for food, fun and entertainment and spend little or no money. As in years past, there will be fun activities and shows in the Family Fun Tent for the kids. Adults and kids alike will enjoy walking through the booths and seeing all the goodies for sale, gathering information, and playing games. Dardenne Prairie’s CERT will be there and the MO Chip Child Identification Program will be set up in City Hall. The live entertainment and food are sure to please everyone!

It has been a long hot summer and I think we are all ready for everything fall has to offer. Colorful leaves, sleeping with the windows open, football season and PRAIRIE DAY!

T.J. MOE, from page 22 prevent one.” But the idea was there for Moe to play defense. “We thought he’d be the quarterback of the defense,” Yost said. “But then we saw the ball in his hands. It was too magical.” Indeed. He’s shown an uncanny ability to elude defenses. Who can forget his 2010 highlight? Moe caught a pass from Parkway West graduate Blaine Gabbert (now in the NFL with Jacksonville) and turned it into a 68-yard scamper down the sideline for the clinching score against San Diego State with precious seconds left in the game. The last-ditch effort saved the game for Missouri. “There aren’t a whole lot of feelings better than scoring a touchdown,” Moe said. The more he’s played, the more he has emerged as a leader. “I think anytime you start producing, then people respect what you say and respect what you do,” Moe said. “You become a leader by default.” He was a leader at Fort Zumwalt West under coach Paul Day. Moe was ranked by as the No. 32 athlete in the nation, and is listed as the No. 5 overall prospect (any position) in the state of Missouri as a senior.

NEWSMAGAZINENETWORK.COM He was named the Missouri ESPN Rise Gatorade Football Player of the Year as a senior in 2008, when he amassed 2,557 passing yards (31 touchdowns) and added a whopping 2,029 rushing yards (30 touchdowns). “T.J. was the state player of the year,” Day said. “He was a great leader. We knew he would be successful at Mizzou.” Day noted he and his staff and others at Fort Zumwalt West are following his career “closely” at Mizzou, he is excited about his last year with the Tigers. “I expect T.J. to have another dominant season at Mizzou,” Day said. “When people work as hard as T.J. and do the right things, success typically follows. T.J. is an exceptional person and will continue to have success because of that.” Moe, an impact player when the ball is in his hands, is looking to close out an outstanding Tiger career in style. He is No. 1 on the depth chart at the H-Receiver position, where he has starred for the previous two seasons, and where his versatility gives the Tiger offense plenty of options in how to use him. He is also likely to factor into the return game as well, where he has been a solid performer. ““He makes plays for us in a multitude of ways,” Yost said. “I mean, he’s returning punts, returning

kicks. We hand the ball to him, we throw the ball to him, we motion him in the backfield.” Quarterback James Franklin is happy to have him as a target. “Well he’s Mr. Mizzou,” Franklin said. “He may be the second, third progression, maybe the first, but I can always look to him.”

This is it: Kenny Loggins coming to Chesterfield Amphitheater Sept. 7 be in a great mood – and, in markets like Chesterfield, they’re happy that you’ve come to the town,” he said, adding that settings like the amphitheater have an ambience all their own. “We start with what we call a ‘wine-andcheese’ mood and then build up into a party atmosphere,” Loggins said. Loggins recently formed a trio called Blue Sky Riders (, which will release its first album in January. But the 64-year-old pop legend said concert-goers on Sept. 7 can look forward to a solid hour-and-a-half of fan favorites, including pop anthem, “Danny’s Song.” Eric Eisen and Jim Quicksilver, managing partners of One Productions – the company bringing Loggins to Chesterfield – saw an opportunity to to showcase the amphitheater. “Here’s a venue that’s been around a year … and no one’s doing anything there but free concerts,” said Quicksilver, 51, of Chesterfield. “We just thought it was a great opportunity to bring something into the Chesterfield area, or West County, that has probably never been done before,” said Eisen, 34, of Ballwin. The city thinks it’s a great idea, too.

By CAROL ENRIGHT Kenny Loggins, a pop icon of the ‘70s and ‘80s, is coming to the Chesterfield Amphitheater on Friday, Sept. 7. The singer-songwriter first gained fame as one half of the duo, Loggins & Messina, best known for “House at Pooh Corner.” Loggins went on to rack up hits as a solo artist with singles such as “This Is It,” “Don’t Fight It” (with Steve Perry) and “Heart to Heart.” Loggins climbed the pop charts also with a number of 1980s movie theme songs, including “I’m Alright” (“Caddyshack”), “Footloose” (“Footloose”) and “Danger Zone” (“Top Gun”). Kenny Loggins is the first big-name, ticketed concert at the Chesterfield Amphitheater, which since opening in May 2011 has hosted a number of free concerts. Loggins said he was looking forward to his first visit to Chesterfield. “It will be fun,” Loggins said. “We’ve been focusing for the last year on hitting what’s called secondary markets – like instead of L.A., we play Santa Barbara – to give the primary markets a rest.” Loggins said playing in smaller towns in an outdoor setting is “probably my favorite kind of venue.” “It usually means an audience is going to

“We’re really excited about it,” said Tom McCarthy, Chesterfield’s director of parks and recreation. McCarthy said although the city is in talks with One Productions to schedule a series of concerts — including Willie Nelson in May 2013 — “we’re not putting all our eggs in one basket.” “We’re going to continue with our free concerts, and we are working with a few other groups, too, that are entertaining the idea of doing the same thing,” McCarthy said. McCarthy called the amphitheater “one of the best kept secrets” in the area. Eisen added that the 3,500-seat venue provides a very intimate setting. “There’s just not a bad seat in the place,” he said. Quicksilver, who grew up listening to Kenny Loggins, was giddy about the pop Kenny Loggins star coming to his hometown and thinks that Chesterfield’s demographics – “fami- for VIP seating. Mid Rivers Newsmagazine lies in their 40s and 50s who grew up in is sponsoring the concert. the ‘70s” – are perfect for a Kenny Loggins concert. “Nothing’s better than hearing that music that you heard when you were 14, 15 or 20 years old,” Quicksilver said.

OH, WHAT A RUSH! Close to home adrenalin rushes and bucket list adventures By DOUG KAUFMAN Climbing Mt. Everest, rafting the Amazon and scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef are all grand dreams, but there are plenty of adventures that are closer and more affordable while still packed with adrenalin rushes. “I’ve heard the term ‘bucket list’ so many times,” said Mark Cook, owner of Fly Free Skydiving in Festus. “Most people come out and say it’s (on) their bucket list.” Sharing the clouds with birds while skydiving, scuba diving the crystalline water at Bonne Terre Mine and soaring through the treetops with Eco Zipline Tours or Caveman Zipline at Meramec Caverns all make the list of adventure vacations that are an easy drive from home.

Mining for adventure Bonne Terre Mine – such a popular destination for divers that Jacques Cousteau and his crew visited and filmed there in 1983 – hosts 15,000 dives a year. The mine holds a billion gallons of clear water and has 17 miles of navigable shoreline. National Geographic named it one of America’s top 10 greatest adventures, and The History Channel has done two features on the mine. “The mine is all about history,” said Doug Goergens, who co-owns West End Diving in St. Louis and Bonne Terre Mine in Bonne Terre with his wife, Catherine. “When they abandoned the mine, they left everything intact. So when you dive the mine, you dive the history of the mine.” Bonne Terre Mine was the largest lead mine in the world, Goergens said, and operated from 1860 until it shut down a century later. When the mine ceased operation, everything was left behind and the pumps were shut off. So when water started seeping in, it flooded and preserved lunch rooms, a movie theater, a locomotive, geology labs, buildings, old light bulbs, iron ore carts, drills, staircases, slurry pipes, scaffolding, elevator shafts, even a water fountain. “It grabs you,” Goergens said. “When you go into the mine, man, you’ve escaped into another world.” There are over 50 different dive tours in the mine, plus half a million stadium lights above the water to illuminate the mine. Guides lead divers on the tours, following a numbered sequence of trails so the divers see something new with each dive. Average water temperature is 60 degrees F, average depth reached is 40 to 60 feet, visibility is always at least 100 feet and dives typically last 35 to 45 minutes.

When Seper decided to partner with experienced that first sky dive,” he said. zipline architect Robert Nickell in 2010 to create a course locally, extended ziplines were a must. “When I had the opportunity to build mine, I built the largest one in mid-Missouri,” he said. “We have big, expansive lines. We have one line that’s a quarter-mile long, up over 200 feet high.” Seper also wanted an ecologically friendly approach, keeping the environment intact. “I tried to do something where we were integrated into the forest,” Seper said. Eco Zipline has three courses: the Easy Rider is 1,000 feet long, has four lines and peaks at 25 feet high; the Super Six has six lines covering 1,800 feet with a top height of 50 feet; and the High Flyer is 10 lines spanning a mile-plus and topping out at 225 feet above the ground. “It’s been amazing how well-received it’s been in the St. Louis area, and actually all around the Midwest,” Seper said. “People Beginners are required to jump tandem with an experienced skydiver on their first jump with are saying it’s the best thing they’ve ever Fly Free Skydiving.

Most divers will do a dive package, usually three to six dives. For the less adventurous, walking or boat tours are offered every hour. The one-hour guided walking tour covers the first two levels of the mine along the “Old Mule Trail” where miners worked with picks and shovels in the 1800s. The boat and walking tour takes visitors onto the lake where they can look down and get glimpses of elevators, submerged ore carts and more. Whether diving or taking the boat or walking tour, Goergens recommends making reservations well in advance of your visit. “This is a giant excavation under the earth – it’s huge,” Goergens said. “It’s like going

Personalized Care to Fit You or Your Loved Ones Needs

When purchasing long-term care insurance, consumers should compare policies and look for carefully for variations in coverage.

Shopping smart for long-term care insurance By SHANNON F. IGNEY Long-term care insurance (LTC) is an increasingly popular tool that can help America’s aging population enjoy financial and personal independence longer. “The general thinking among consumers is that LTC is nursing home insurance,” said Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI), a national organization that promotes the need for long-term care but does not sell coverage. “The fact is, LTC is so much more than that; it is (also) nursing home avoidance insurance.” In addition to covering care at nursing homes and health care facilities, LTC insurance covers a variety of in-home assistance services typically not covered under traditional health insurance and Medicare plans. LTC policies provide a la carte benefits, enabling consumers to choose the services that will best enable them to stay in their homes longer. Statistics show that a person older than 65 will at some point most likely need LTC services for an average of three years – 2.2 years for men, and 3.7 years for women – and 69 percent of those people will utilize the coverage for in-home care services. Asked what consumers should know about purchasing LTC insurance, Slome stressed the importance of applying for coverage sooner rather than later. “In general, people are healthier today than they will be tomorrow,” Slome said. “All coverage providers subject customers to a rigorous health qualification process and require documentation proving ability to pay premiums before issuing a plan. Failure on

either part will end in denial of application.” Consumers also should compare insurance plans and look for variations. As an example, Plan A might define “in-home” care as “medical,” which could include medical assistance services such as an in-home nurse, therapist, physical aide, etc. Plan B might define “in-home” care more broadly, and include “senior companionship” services such as socialization, transportation and laundry. As a second example, Plan A might include a clause stating that “80 percent of home services claims will be covered,” while Plan B might have a clause stating that “100 percent of home services claims are covered for one year.” Another difference: As an alternative to standard LTC insurance, some companies offer a “linked benefit” product that provides a death benefit to heirs in the event long-term care insurance is not used. The AALTCI suggests asking the following questions of a potential insurer: • Is LTC insurance your main product? It is often best for the consumer to seek a LTC specialist, as each company has a unique coverage plan, and a specialist can help navigate the process. • What are the policy costs? According to the 2012 Long Term Care Insurance Price Index Survey published by the AALTCI, rates for virtually identical coverage can vary by more than 90 percent from one insurance company to another. Rates vary also from state to state, so someone who owns property in multiple states should mention that to the agent, provided the agent is licensed in both states.

Inaugural St. Charles Restaurant Week set for Sept.10-16 By SUE HORNOF The first-ever St. Charles Restaurant Week will be held from Monday, Sept. 10 through Sunday, Sept. 16 and will feature 13 of the area’s finest dining destinations showcasing some of their best dishes. Participating restaurants will offer a special, fixed-price dinner menu and will offer their regular menus also, giving patrons the opportunity to revisit classics or try something new. Bobby Conn and Rob Muckler, managing partners of R & B Productions, are the organizers of St. Charles Restaurant Week. Earlier this year and in 2011, the pair brought a similar event to West St. Louis County. They previously had worked with the organizer of Clayton Restaurant Week and decided to expand the concept westward, which proved to be a huge success in West County. Now, they are hoping to achieve similar results in St. Charles and make the event an annual occurrence. The St. Charles Restaurant Week concept is simple: Guests who dine at participating restaurants during the event receive a three-course meal priced at $25 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Typically, diners are given a special menu featuring a few options for each of three courses – appetizer, salad and dessert – and restaurants feature some of their best fare. No tickets, cards or coupons are required, but guests are encouraged to call ahead for reservations, as many restaurants are expected to be filled to capacity during peak hours. After their meals, diners will have the option of adding a small donation to their bill to benefit Oasis Food Pantry, a volunteer-run organization that has no paid employees and feeds more than 8,000 families per year and through its thrift shop provides affordable clothing and household items to those in need.

“Oasis Food Pantry is our charity of choice,” Conn said. “A $5 optional donation at the end of your meal goes directly to the organization.” Sponsors of St. Charles Restaurant Week include Feast magazine, Mid Rivers Newsmagazine, Paper Leaf Printing & Design, and TimeOff magazine. At MRN presstime, participating restaurants include: • Bristol Seafood Grill, 2314 Technology Drive, O’Fallon (625-6350) • Charlie Gitto’s From The Hill, 777 Casino Center Drive, Maryland Heights (314-770-8100) • Concetta’s Italian Restaurant, 600 S. 5th Street, St. Charles (946-2468) • Llywelyn’s Pub, 100 N.
