[ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR ] Today’s health section, Wellness First, is about prevention, something everyone is probably onboard with in theory. Practice is another story. I’m as culpable as the next person, maybe even more so. I’ve spent a lot of time over the years at places like Canyon Ranch and Miraval hearing about all the ways to avoid virtually every malady, especially those associated with aging. Take balance. The theory is that most falls are preventable, if only we’d spend a little time “building better balance.” Yes, balance can be taught, only it’s really boring to practice standing on one foot (and then the other) for long periods of time. Or repeatedly walking across a room touching toe to heel—daily. And sleeplessness can be improved on, too, by adhering to a long list of ‘don’ts,’ starting with not eating close to bedtime, not tuning into Showtime when you find yourself awake at 2 a.m., and not polishing off that bottle of wine after dinner (alcohol may make you sleepy, but it keeps you from staying asleep). Then there’s the whole list of foods you should and should not eat. This is something of a moving target; one month strawberries top the list of foods with the highest concentration of trace pesticides, the next it’s grapes. And don’t even get me started on fish (mercury levels), red meat (antibiotics), chicken (hormones), or rice and corn (GMOs). Sometimes I just call up the memory of my dear, departed father-in-law and say: You were right, Dad. One does indeed have to die of something, and you may as well have a smile on your face when you do. —Dorothy F. Weiner Editor in Chief

WE’RE SORRY | In our March 6 issue on p. 14, we misquoted Rita Mahn, Vice President-Branch Manager for Wells Fargo Advisors in Festus. The correct quote in regards to Rita’s interest in finance should have read, “to learn more about fixed income and mutual funds.” We also neglected to use the company’s full name, Wells Fargo Advisors, upon each reference. In the February 20 issue, we listed an incorrect date for St. Louis Children’s Hospital’s Cocktails and Clowns fundraiser, which is on March 15.

progressive education. “Our mission is to teach children who are deaf and hard of hearing to listen, speak, read and interact with others without using sign language,” says executive director Robin Feder. Students graduate as soon as they’re ready to be mainstreamed in neighborhood schools, alongside their hearing peers. “We prepare them to thrive—academically, socially and professionally—in the hearing, speaking world.” And they do. “CID alumni have gone on to more than 120 leading universities, including Harvard, Yale, NYU, Northwestern, Washington University and Pratt Institute of Design,” Feder says. “They have become architects, social workers, lawyers, pilots and engineers. Their families credit CID with providing a firm foundation for success.” The institute serves children from birth to age 12 with a broad range of individualized, assessment-based programs, including classes at its Central West End school, at-home instruction, and audiology and hearing services. The student-teacher ratio is 5-to-1 or better. CID also collaborates with institutions, educators and professionals worldwide to offer continuing education, graduate practicum experience and other resources to students and professionals in deaf education and related fields. William Singh, now 8, entered CID nearly four years ago, a week after receiving bilateral cochlear implants to make him more receptive to sound. “When Dave and I adopted him from India, he was profoundly deaf in both ears, probably due to meningitis,” says mother Ellen Singh, who is deaf in one CID STUDENT WILLIAM SINGH ear. “He’s a lively, energetic, smart little boy, and he wanted so much to be able to communicate with others!” Since enrolling at CID, his progress has been amazing, she reports. “Two years ago, all he could say at the school’s annual Christmas show were three words: ho, ho, ho. But last year, he narrated the entire show like a champ. He loves school, and eats up new concepts and vocabulary words in a flash.” CID never turns away an eligible child for financial reasons. “Only 25 percent of the school’s costs are covered by tuition and fees, and many of our students are on scholarship,” Feder says. “Generous private support makes us affordable for all.” CID’s major annual fundraiser, Ultimate Picnic, takes place April 27 at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis. This year’s theme is CID on Safari. Kerrin Kowach chairs the event, which is presented by Wells Fargo Advisors. Laurie Haffenreffer is live auction chair and Katie Clark chairs the silent auction. “Children like William Singh come to us every day, and often they have no words at all,” Feder says. “We work with their families to help them achieve their fullest potential. By the time they leave us, they have the tools they need to make their way in the world. It’s gratifying to help them grow, but we can’t do it without continued community support.”

lush cabochon gemstones of tourmaline, amethyst, citrine and peridot set in 18-karat yellow gold make a striking statement. from the elleard heffern signature collection.

TALK [TOWNS] by bill beggs jr.

Should parks be sacred ground? BJC Healthcare was lambasted a few years back for wanting to carve out a chunk of Forest Park across Kingshighway Boulevard. Of late, Wildwood residents were up in arms when a zipline operator wanted to set up in Greensfelder Park. (Its sights are now set on Creve Coeur Park.) Residents adjacent to Ohlendorf West Park in Ballwin were understandably irked when they found out five acres of the 44-acre site were being taken up by the county’s $16.2 million Emergency Communications Center (ECC), which includes a 250foot tower. Construction is slated for completion in May, but residents knew nothing about the project until workers started taking down trees. Meanwhile, Kirkwood has put on hold plans for a 190-foot tower in Kirkwood Park for the ECC, but not because of resident outcry. A water tower formerly at the site was removed because the soil settled. Eminent domain? Not exactly. The needs of ECC probably pre-empt city ordinances, authorities say. Cops carry tasers. When used properly, they can drop an aggressive criminal to the ground like a sack of potatoes. So, what’s a substitute teacher doing ‘testing’ one in an elementary-school classroom? Cops and administrators at Kehrs Mill Elementary in Chesterfield are tight-lipped, other than A) the taser user isn’t facing any charges, and B) he/she won’t be returning. The brouhaha led the principal to send a letter informing parents the sub was replaced. Once the publicity mill got into high gear, however, a second letter added that the fifth-graders were never in any danger and may not even have been aware of what was going on. For the following, at the very least, we scratch our heads: Apparently, a teacher across the hall is

OF THE

who informed the administration. Did she hear the sound, kind of like a bug zapper? What did the ‘test’ involve? I once witnessed someone get zapped on the leg (at the taser’s lowest setting); he acted as though someone had hit him with an axe. A real nurse and a fake cop? Sounds like a couple’s Halloween getup, but it’s the sad details in a false police report filed by a Fenton nurse. She alleged that a man she thought was a police officer pulled her from her car and punched and threw her to the ground on Polo Drive in Clayton. Not surprising, alcohol was involved—but, apparently, no one else was. When authorities persisted about her bizarre allegations, she confessed to lying. Now she has to wear a monitoring bracelet and perform 80 hours of community service. We hope she does that in an environment where she can witness the hopelessness of chronic alcoholism. Whether she has received substance-abuse treatment is unclear: In the 1990s, she was disciplined in Missouri and Illinois for alcohol- and drug-related issues. Her nursing license expires at the end of next month. Experience shows that, unless arrested, alcohol problems only get worse.

people feel like doing that the morning after a so-called ‘pub crawl.’ Which is why we especially like the moniker for Maplewood’s event the first Saturday of next month: the Coffee Crawl. From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 6, the fourth annual Maplewood Coffee Crawl will allow java junkies to sip offerings from seven different roasters: Art House Coffee, Goshen Coffee, Kaldi’s Coffee, Killi Caffe, Kuva Coffee Co., Riley’s Coffee and Stringbean Coffee. If coffee isn’t your cup of tea, you can sample the steepings of two tea retailers. By afternoon, UJ & The Down Home Blues Band will be playing for your well-wired enjoyment. The event is free, but registration is required: cityofmaplewood.com/coffee. I have a friend who refers to Saint Louis Galleria as ‘The Gonif Arena,’ gonif being the Yiddish word for thief. Well, there are real gonifs afoot, and they’re not just shoplifters (retailers call them ‘hitters’), who come in all ages and are common as grains of sand, apparently. Last month Richmond Heights police questioned, but so far have not charged, an employee of Buckle (casual apparel and accessories) after it was discovered that the store safe had been opened over the weekend and $14,000 was missing.

The dusting of snow on the palm trees was real. The palms, however, are not. But everything else at Chimichanga’s is bona fide. The authentic Mexican restaurant at 5425 S. Grand Blvd. in south St. Louis (at Eiler, a block south of Eichelberger) is another establishment chosen as a 2012 ‘Neighborhood Business of the Year’ by the city. Chimichanga’s got the nod in Ward 13 (last year, nearby Café Mochi was the Ward 15 winner). Chimichanga’s is a delight from the outside in. Even in daylight, you can see its bright yellow fence for blocks. At night, lights strung along the fencing announce there’s a party going on in here. And soon it may be warm enough to enjoy a meal outside on the patio, in the shade of fake fronds. But inside, it’s noisy, which is part of the charm. A mural adds to the celebration, and the margaritas are designated-driver size. Meal portions are more than generous, and there are dozens of options to choose from. I had to request a box for my leftovers and that’s after only two tacos and frijoles! OK, full disclosure: As a kid who grew up in the Northeast, I’d never even heard of a taco until my freshman year at Colorado State, when I thought it was pronounced ‘take-o.’ It wasn’t

Eateries come, eateries go. Sometimes it happens faster than a 13-year-old girl’s puppy loves, but that is not the case with Amici’s, which had managed a six-year run in downtown Kirkwood, despite nearby competitors and grumblings about high prices. Curiously, the restaurant at 210 N. Kirkwood Road had a ‘Closed for Renovations’ sign in the window last month. Pshaw to that. Ever roll out of bed and crawl to the coffee pot? Well, we’ve heard some

until a trip to the other side of town that I had the real thing, at a joint with a dusty parking lot and beat-up stucco outside. I never visited ‘chain’ Mexican again. If you’re looking for the real thing, you’ll find it at Chimichanga’s. State legislators hope to deter fraudsters who take advantage of federal welfare benefits— using them for lottery tickets, liquor, adult entertainment, at casinos and other luxuries for which the monies are not intended. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-U. City, and Will Kraus, R-Lee’s Summit, have reached across the aisle to co-sponsor legislation that would bring Missouri into compliance with a federal law passed last year. They held a press conference March 4 in Jeff City to address details of the bill, which if not passed in some form would disqualify Missouri from 5 percent of its federal allocation. This cannot prevent beneficiaries from misusing the funds, however. The dishonest who receive their benefits electronically can convert them to cash and use them for anything. Criminy! Man up, people;

these funds are intended for the needy and their dependent children. The arts are the sweet breath of life throughout Webster Groves. By summer, there should be a sculpture park here, in the two triangular plots of ground straddling Gore Avenue at Kirkham Avenue, just down the hill north of downtown. The seventh annual city-wide en plein air event, Paint Webster, is on the arts schedule again (May 11), as is the Art & Air festival (June 7-9). Music lovers who’ve flocked to the Old Webster Jazz & Blues fest each fall may have another genre this summer to savor: Soulfest. Webster University’s Community Music School for kids is world-renowned. Opera Theatre of St. Louis has a full summer schedule. The Rep stages professional productions of works, old and new. Gateway Foundation chose to install Allen Jones’ abstract, weathered steel ‘Back Flip’ at Big Bend Boulevard and Lockwood Avenue. Then, who knows what will be the ultimate use for Ozark Theatre— lovingly restored, but only to a point? You may stop to take a breath now.

Long on the map for its eclectic art offerings, the city recently was honored as Missouri’s 2013 ‘Creative Community.’ (Last year, Joplin was honored, in large part for its goal to weave art into rebuilding efforts following the deadly 2011 tornado.) Among the residents on hand at the state capitol recently, when Mayor Gerry Welch accepted the award on the city’s behalf, were arts mavens Don and Tracy Drissell, who have been active in the city’s arts initiatives since they moved B:11.375” here in the late 1990s from St. Louis. Don is an architect with Panera; T:10.875” Tracy, a graphic artist. The pair has been S:10.125”

energized by the city’s embrace of the arts, down to its landscape architecture. This means, for better or worse, that both have been tapped often as volunteers. When he ‘retired’ from the Architectural Review Board a few years ago, Don was wooed back by Welch to help form the city’s Arts Commission. Nary a pause for pro bono: After we sat down with the Drissells, Don was to head for a commission meeting to select one of three graphic options for banners celebrating the honor. Tracy had designed them. We put in our 2 cents’ worth; let’s hope the powers-that-be chose wisely.

The Dada Ball & Bash, a biennial gala to benefit Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, takes place April 6 at CAM, 3750 Washington Blvd. The gala ball and swinging after-party provide 20 percent of CAM’s annual revenue. This year’s event celebrates British art and culture, featuring a fashion show produced by Neiman Marcus and emceed by NM fashion director Ken Downing. The inspiration for the event, British artist Jeremy Deller’s interactive exhibition Joy in People, runs through April 28 at CAM.

If you liked them a couple of years ago in Hamlet, you’ll love them in Twelfth Night. Kimiye Corwin and Anderson Matthews return May 24 through June 16 to Shakespeare Festival St. Louis in Forest Park. Corwin was nominated for a Kevin Kline award for her turn as Ophelia; Matthews has numerous Broadway credits, including The Robber Bridegroom with Patti LuPone and Kevin Kline.

Aubrey Allicock, who rose from the chorus at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis to become a leading baritone, has won OTSL’s Mabel Dorn Reeder Foundation Prize. The $10,000 cash award is given annually to a young artist who shows extraordinary potential. A native of Tucson, Ariz., Allicock began his professional career as part of OTSL’s Gerdine Young Artist program, then performed at the Metropolitan Opera in Armida and Rigoletto. In St. Louis, he won rave reviews for his performances as Zaretsky in Eugene Onegin, Mamoud in The Death of Klinghoffer and the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.

The 20th annual Dining Out for Life takes place April 25 at more than 130 area eateries. That’s the day participating restaurants donate at least 25 percent of proceeds to Saint Louis Effort for AIDS, which provides education programs and support services for those affected by the disease. FOR A LIST OF PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS, SEE DININGOUTFORLIFE.COM.

To celebrate The SHELDON’S 100th anniversary, the venerable concert hall commissioned local photographers Ray Marklin, Odell Mitchell Jr., Kathleen Sanker and Jennifer Silverberg to shoot photos in and around the historic building. The striking result, The Sheldon: 100 Moments—A Celebration of the 100th Anniversary, is available at the venue’s gift shop and online. An exhibit of the photos is on view at The Sheldon Art Galleries through May 4.

Golf Digest has ranked both golf courses at Country Club of St. Albans among the Top 10 in Missouri.

The club was the only one in Missouri to have two courses chosen. The Tavern Creek course came in at No. 7, with Lewis & Clark ranked ninth. The courses were lauded for challenging both seasoned and casual golfers.

Raise a flagon of mead to Thomas Madden, director of Saint Louis University’s Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, who has been named a fellow of the Medieval Academy of America. The scholar, whose latest book is Venice: A New History, was lauded in the New York Times for his “breezy, cheerful” style and storytelling ability.

[BACKTALK A NEW KIND OF ADVICE COLUMN by raschelle burton & patty hannum MY HUSBAND DOESN’T LIKE TO GET TOGETHER WITH ONE OF MY FRIENDS. HE FINDS HER GUESTS BORING AND SHE TENDS TO INVITE TOO MANY PEOPLE FOR HER LITTLE CONDO. WHAT SHOULD I SAY TO HER? —CRAMPED IN KIRKWOOD

PATTY: Say nothing to your friend, but can I suggest you dump your husband? Wait a minute, I don’t think I can say that, since this is not a marital advice column. I must admit I am a talker, so no matter where I go, I find someone to talk to. And as for over-inviting, guilty as charged! I once hosted a couples’ bridal shower with close to 50 people, intending for it to be on the patio. Of course it rained, so we moved the stuff out of our garage and added a ‘room’ to our house. True, it was during the days of keggers, but I recently saw one of the guest couples and they still bring up what a great time they had! Tell your husband to buck up and come to the party. If there are too many people, all boring, he can slip out unnoticed. Or better yet, just go to the party without him. RASCHELLE: I disagree, Patty. I think we can give marital advice; people should just remember it’s free and you get what you pay for. The bottom line is we all have to spend time with boring people, forced to don our fake smiles and chitty chat. It is difficult to be fully present in those moments, and who doesn’t want to be fully present and at peace with the universe? There’s nothing less appealing than being squished into a tiny room with a bunch of dullards. That’s why I firmly believe when you can choose your company, you may as well make it good company -- handsome, interesting, funny company—otherwise you’re just in a staff meeting, right? I CANNOT PULL INTO MY DRIVEWAY WITHOUT MY NEIGHBOR POPPING HER HEAD OUT TO SAY SOMETHING. EVEN BEING OUT IN THE YARD IS UNPLEASANT SINCE SHE WALKS OVER AND JUST STARTS TALKING. WHAT CAN I DO? —LIVING NEXT TO GLADYS KRAVITZ

PATTY: Have you thought about moving? I have never had a nosy neighbor, but she sounds like she is just lonely. Can you spare five minutes to chat with her? And yes, I know it is not ‘necessary.’ I am pretty sure when you signed the closing documents there wasn’t a clause that stated you had to chat with your neighbors. Can you enter your house through your garage? Or when she comes into your yard, be prepared to begin spraying for bugs and suggest she wear a gas mask ‘just in case.’ Don’t let her stop you from doing what you want in your own home. A firm, “I have to go” or “I really need to finish this book” or “My phone is ringing” should do the trick. If all else fails, remember: good fences make good neighbors. RASCHELLE: Oh, for a second there I thought you said you were living next to Lenny Kravitz, and that would be an entirely different answer. You’re more likely to succeed in conjuring up a unicorn with an ancient incantation than in making her the kind of neighbor you want. So stop wasting time. You must ignore her completely. Don’t look at her, don’t wave, don’t smile, don’t answer her questions and, for the love of God, don’t answer the phone or the door. If you’re in your yard and she approaches, run into the house, flailing your arms so there’s no mistaking that you’re running from her.

symphony, told me a musician from East St. Louis changed his life. “I started playing trumpet when I was 9, but I heard Miles Davis play My Funny Valentine when I was 12 and it radically changed my perspective. All the trumpet players I had heard before, like Doc Severinsen or Maynard Ferguson, played with joyous bravado. But Miles had this haunting, beautiful, melancholy sound. I pretty much knew then that I wanted to be a professional trumpet player.” ]

[TIME OUT... WITH T.J. OSHIE

by jeff melnick

T. J. OSHIE WAS THE ST. LOUIS BLUES’ FIRST-ROUND DRAFT PICK in 2005 (24th overall) and by 2008, he was a member of the Blues. His exciting style of play thrilled fans, and that continues as the 26-year-old right-winger keeps dazzling on the ice. Q. WHAT DID YOU DO TO STAY BUSY DURING THE LOCKOUT? A. Well we skated between three and five times a week, but I also played a lot of golf. Q. SO WHAT KIND OF GOLFER ARE YOU, AND WHAT’S THE BEST ST. LOUIS COURSE? A. I shoot in the high 70s, low 80s. I’d say Bellerive is the toughest course here. Q. WHERE DO YOU LIVE IN THE OFF-SEASON? A. Brainerd, Minn., about two hours north of Minneapolis-St. Paul. I like my small Brainerd town;

I’m a big fan of laying low.

Q. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT? A. Paul Manno’s—I’ve never had a bad meal there. I really like Annie Gunn’s, too. I’m a big steakhouse guy. Q. A LOT OF YOUNG WOMEN WHO FOUND OUT I WAS INTERVIEWING YOU WANTED TO KNOW IF YOU HAD A GIRLFRIEND. A. I have a girlfriend, Lauren, who lives with me here in St. Louis. She’s from Minnesota. We’ve been dating for about two years, and things have been going good. Q. WHAT WOULD FANS BE MOST SURPRISED TO LEARN ABOUT YOU? A. Um…I’m a pretty weird guy. I’ve just got a wild imagination. I say some off-the-wall things sometimes. Q. WHAT ARE YOUR PRE-GAME RITUALS? A. My iPod is on the team stereo. I like to switch it up.

We always play soccer before every game, and I have

a secret handshake with each guy before we walk out.

Q. WHAT’S THE CRAZIEST NICKNAME YOU HAVE? A. Walt (Keith Tkachuk) called me ‘furnace face’ because my face always gets red.

Summer Music Programs Family Camp: Creatures at the Ocean! Individual Lessons, Student Camps: Band, Low Brass, Flute, String Orchestra, Composition and Chamber Music The Community Music School is conveniently located in Webster Groves, Chesterfield and University City

Q. WHAT DID IT MEAN TO YOU TO BE SO WELCOMED BY FANS IN ST. LOUIS? A. It really helped my transition; that was pretty special. Q. THE BLUES ARE STILL LOOKING FOR THEIR FIRST STANLEY CUP. WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION TO BEING PICKED TO WIN THE CUP? A. It’s a dream of all of ours. I can’t even fathom what it would really be like. Q. WHEN IT’S ALL SAID AND DONE, HOW WILL YOU WANT FANS TO REMEMBER YOU? A. As the most exciting player they’ve ever watched. I try to work the hardest, so for someone to say my

work ethic made it exciting for them would be pretty special to me.

PARENT TRAP SUPER BOWL

SEXUALIZATION

]

by dr. tim jordan THE SUPER BOWL and winter award shows provided yet another opportunity for me to worry about our children and the images they see every day. Sporting events like Rams football games or the Super Bowl are seen by kids of all ages. This is not late-night adult viewing; this is prime time and seen by families with young children. And what did they see? Commercials dripping with sexuality. There was a beer commercial focused on a woman, waist down, walking toward the camera in a sensual way. All you see is her long bare legs coming out of a tight miniskirt; talk about objectification. Another commercial shows a model and a ‘nerdy’ younger guy making out. It looked uncomfortable for both, wasn’t sensual or fun—just weird and awkward. Halftime brought us a scantily clad Beyonce strutting and grinding and blowing sultry kisses. Oh, she sang, too, but the content and tone was pure sensuality. Now, I’m not a prude or a grumpy old man, really. But I work with kids and teens every day, and I hear them express the pressures they feel from popular culture about how they are supposed to look and act. Those aforementioned images are a large part of the problem. The main message from many TV commercials kids see is: If you want to be happy, you need to be thin, sexy, out in an expensive club drinking alcohol with equally thin, sexy friends. You have to have a perfect physique, women and men alike, and wear skimpy clothes that show it all. And to pull off being this cool and popular and beautiful, you need the products we are selling. What the commercials are really selling is the lie that happiness is found in externals like being popular, famous and beautiful. They want you to buy the mantra that more is better and that happiness can be bought. And it’d affecting not only girls. If you want your sons to grow up respecting women and knowing how to create meaningful, intimate relationships, you need to turn off the boob tube or watch TV with them and talk about it. Talk about the images, about the objectification of women, and what’s really important. Make sure your daughters are image-savvy, that they understand about the airbrushing and photoshopping of pictures in magazines. They need to know that what they see there is not reality, but a made-up image. Ask questions about what they think about these commercials and images. What does it say about relationships and happiness? It’s a sad day when parents have to screen commercials and halftime shows. Make sure you have the last and most influential word on all of this.

[ bringing silver to the midwest ] GATEWAY FIELD HOCKEY EXCELS AT NATIONAL TOURNEY

Another St. Louis team is putting a traditionally East Coast sport on the map. The U16 Gateway Field Hockey Club recently returned from the National Disney Field Hockey Showcase with silver medals. Kate O’Connell, who coaches the girls with Melissa Lantz, says their achievement caught the attention of other teams. “It’s huge,” she says. “We beat teams from New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Canada, the hotbed of hockey. Those are the powerhouses, and we beat them handily. It’s a huge accomplishment for the growth of field hockey in St. Louis and the Midwest.” The winning team represents seven local high schools, but O’Connell explains that the U16 team is comprised of many other players. Unlike club soccer teams, which tend to keep the same teams together year after year, Gateway mixes up the girls based on performance and determination. “We made our final team selection about a week before,” she says. “But they are all training together. Sometimes it’s a matter of who can attend.” Despite coming from different schools, O’Connell says the U16 team has a strong sense of camaraderie. “Our coaches, staff and the girls all get along. They want to be there, to succeed and work toward the common goal,” she says.

talk to… [joseph tanner]

Chaminade junior Joseph Tanner lives for strikes. As pitcher, his job is to throw as many as he can past his opponent. As a bowler, it’s to rack up those perfect shots. His passion for the latter sport helped his team win the conference championship this year. THIS IS YOUR FIRST YEAR ON THE TEAM. HOW DID YOU GET INTO BOWLING?

This summer, I was on the baseball team, which traveled a lot, and in between out-of-town games, we’d go bowling. When school started again, I wasn’t playing baseball and looking for something to do. Bowling turned out to be a very good decision. The first time I went to practice was just for fun. I did well and coach said I should join. I was hooked. HOW ARE BOWLING AND BASEBALL SIMILAR?

Both sports require mental toughness. You can go into slumps, but if you have mental toughness, one strike changes everything. WHAT IS YOUR TEAM DYNAMIC LIKE?

In our conference, we are the team that has the most fun and the best chemistry. When we have strikes, there’s cheering and high-fives. We try to win our games as a team. Not A Registered Girl Scout? No Problem!

All girls are welcome to our summer camp. If you are not a registered Girl Scout, include an additional $12 membership fee with the summer program application.

MICDS SENIOR SHARES HER PASSION FOR SQUASH

When the average St. Louisan thinks squash, they think farmers market. But when Julia Olson thinks squash, she starts plotting rapid-fire strategy. The MICDS senior has led the charge in St. Louis to promote the game she loves, a kind of cross between racquetball, tennis and chess, she says. “It’s hard to explain to someone who’s never heard of it,” Olson admits. “It’s a perfect blend of mental and physical strategy. You’re in a box, and it’s just you and the other player. You have to strategize to out-think the other person.” She first picked up the game when she was 11, but there were not many opportunities to play against her peers. “My

family is originally from the East Coast, and my second cousins were squash players,” Olson says. “I’ve grown up playing with men at the racquet club downtown. I played only against male members and trained with my brother.” But the sport is gaining popularity. Recently, 20 or so local teenagers competed in the St. Louis Gold Squash tournament, hosted by U.S. Squash at MICDS. Nearly 200 teens from across the country participated, including Olson. It’s a nice change; usually she is the one traveling thousands of miles to East Coast tournaments. “At this moment, there is a very small group of people from the Midwest,” she says. “After matches, you talk to your opponent, and I love their expressions when I tell them I’m from St. Louis. They say, ‘Really? They have squash there?’” Olson will play squash for Stanford University in the fall, where she plans to study engineering. The college level offers greater competition, and Olson can’t wait. “A microcosm is within each point, and every shot requires that focus,” she says. “I just love the challenge of it, I love having to strategize, be focused, stay on my toes. The best is when you’re in the fifth game of a close match, and it’s down to a battle of who wants it more.”

So Ranken Jordan and Dave Sinclair Lincoln are teaming up to raise money for the hospital. “It’s part of Lincoln Motor Co.’s Driven to Give program,” explains Ranken Jordan CEO Lauri Tanner. “For each driver who stops by our Maryland Heights campus May 18 to test-drive a new Lincoln, Dave Sinclair Lincoln will make a $20 donation to Ranken Jordan.” Behind every partnership is a story, and the luxury car dealership’s relationship with Ranken Jordan is no exception. “Quite simply, the amazing staff at Ranken Jordan gave my niece her life back,” says James Sinclair, president of Dave Sinclair Lincoln. Two-and-a-half years ago, 15-year-old Cecilia Detwiler and her brother were in a car wreck that crushed her legs. “It was a nightmare—they were trapped inside the wreckage for hours,” Sinclair recalls. “We weren’t sure she would ever walk again, let alone live. She almost lost a leg.” But today, thanks to the care and support she received at Ranken Jordan, Cecilia is healthy, happy—and walking. “I was a Ranken Jordan supporter before the accident, but now I’m their biggest fan,” Sinclair says. “I believe in their mission. My family has seen it in action.” Since 1941, Ranken Jordan has helped thousands of severely ill and injured kids get out of their hospital beds and back into life. “We serve the sickest of the sick, the so-called hopeless cases: kids born with complex medical conditions or, like Cecilia, suffering from catastrophic injuries,” Tanner says. “Once the immediate crisis is over, they can’t stay in a conventional hospital, but they’re still too sick to go home—and their parents have no idea how to handle a complex, ongoing medical condition.” Ranken Jordan provides customized care through inpatient and outpatient programs, a comprehensive orthopedic and rehabilitation clinic, and ongoing support for patients ages 2 weeks to 21 years. “We also educate parents on how to continue the healing process at home,” Tanner says. “But we couldn’t do any of it without generous community support.” All the latest Lincolns will be available for a spin at Driven to Give. “Coachmen Car Club of St. Louis will also be there with a spectacular classic car show,” Tanner says. “Both Dave Sinclair Lincoln and Coachmen are longtime Ranken Jordan supporters. Thanks to them, we’ll have something for everyone May 18. We’re hoping for 300 test drives. So stop by, take a tour and drive a car for a great cause!”

DRIVEN TO GIVE TAKES PLACE MAY 18 AT RANKEN JORDAN-A PEDIATRIC SPECIALTY HOSPITAL, 11365 DORSETT ROAD IN MARYLAND HEIGHTS. RESERVATIONS ARE ADVISED; CALL 314.467.0089.

Q&Aw/ jennabushhager by catherine klene

You could say it runs in the family. Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of

President George W. Bush, grew up witness to her father and grandfather’s public service and her mother’s career as a librarian and teacher. That dual inspiration fostered a passion for education. Hager taught at inner-city schools in Baltimore and D.C. before she became a correspondent for NBC’s Today, where she frequently reports on education across the U.S. Recently, she was in town for Marian Inspires!, a benefit for Marian Middle School, which serves girls in St. Louis’ urban communities. In a T&S exclusive, Hager talks about her passion for education, some favorite memories of the White House, and her thoughts on a baseball rivalry that will never die.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< • >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

PHOTO BY CARLA FALASCO

Q/ How did you get involved with Marian School?

I heard about this school and the way they empower girls, in particular, to get a quality education and go to college. The mission is something really important to me.

lot of relatives from St. Louis, but I haven’t been here since I was in elementary school. We went to the Arch and took our pictures underneath. We did all the typical touristy things, but I remember loving it.

Q/ Has education always been a priority?

Q/ Your father used to own the Texas Rangers. Does

In high school, I volunteered with Austin Children’s Shelter, something my mom inspired me to do. She said, You love working with kids; you should spend your weekends doing that. I knew from that work that I wanted to be a teacher. As an intern, I helped start a charter school in D.C., and I saw the way innovative public or private schools can help when parents don’t have other choices. I’ve also been able to travel with my parents... and I saw how important girls’ education is not just in our country, but around the world.

Q/ Tell me about your family in St. Louis.

My grandfather’s brother is Bucky Bush, and he, his wife and their kids live here. He is the cutest, the best. I have a

baseball run in the family?

I went to the 2011 World Series (Rangers versus Cardinals) and rooted against the Cardinals! But some of our family and friends work with the Cards, so when the team came to play at Rangers Stadium, my parents had all the St. Louis people over for a friendly brunch before the game. We can be friendly... Of course, it’s easier for you guys—you won!

Q/ Though you never actually lived in the White House, you spent a lot of time there. What are some favorite memories?

We have fond memories of visiting every holiday. When my grandfather was there, we were in elementary school. It’s

a really beautiful place no matter what age you are, but as a kid, the way it smells and looks... It’s just truly magical. My parents included us in everything and encouraged us to travel with them. My sister and I were able to go to Africa when my dad was unveiling PEPFAR, and we got to meet these people being treated with AIDS and HIV medicine. We got to go to schools and clinics and hear people’s stories. We were at an impressionable age, 19 or 20. After that, I really do think it changed the course of our lives and how we wanted to work.

Q/Speaking of work, what is the best part of working as a correspondent for Today ?

It’s such an honor to be able to tell people’s stories in a way that accurately represents who they are and what they say.... Probably my favorites are about my grandparents. It’s nice to tell personal stories about people you love and show the world who they are.

YOU’VE BURIED YOUR FEET IN HEAVY BOOTS and clunky shoes all winter long. Now spring is barely a week away. Are your feet prepared? If not, the experts at Feet for Life Podiatry Center can get them sandal-ready in no time. “I wanted to make sure my patients had access to comprehensive follow-up care, with multiple services conveniently gathered at a single location,” says podiatrist Dr. Michael Horwitz. So in 1990, he started Feet for Life. The practice has branches in University City, Chesterfield and Washington, Mo.. The latest addition to the Chesterfield location is Feet for Life Motion Center. “It’s the only area shoe store that fully supports the minimal-shoe philosophy,” explains manager Jim Hixson. The store features the latest in minimal footwear: lightweight, flat-soled, flexible shoes with ample room for toes. “Minimal footwear allows the feet to move naturally, resulting in strong, balanced, responsive muscles, improved function, fewer injuries, and fewer problems with tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and other biomechanical issues,” Hixson says. The store offers computerized gait analysis to detect individual problems and ensure proper fit. Also at the Chesterfield location is CleanSpa, which Horwitz and his wife, Angela, launched last year. “It’s a luxurious spa where health and beauty are equally important,” Horwitz explains. At the spa, certified medical nail technicians, foot specialists and therapists deliver top-notch services in a safe, healthy environment. “It’s all too common to contract a nail infection from salons that fail to practice stringent sterilization,” Horwitz says. “Just because a salon sprinkles rose petals in the water and charges a fortune doesn’t mean the place is clean.” CleanSpa’s pedicure tubs, instruments and towels are sanitized after every use, using high-tech methods. “Every trace of fungus and bacteria-generating protein is destroyed throughout the entire facility,” Horwitz says. Manicure and pedicure areas are segregated, and manicure tables are equipped with high-powered ventilation systems: “When fungus-laden fingernail dust settles on wet pedicure areas, it can cause infection and athlete’s foot,” he explains. To protect diabetic and immunosupressed clients, medical areas are separated from cosmetic areas. One of the greatest advantages of a spa where beauty is more than skin deep is client access to expert medical care. “If a fungal infection contracted elsewhere is found during a visit to CleanSpa, onsite medical treatment is immediately available,” Horwitz says. “My colleagues and I at the Podiatry Center treat the full range of foot problems, the experts at CleanSpa pamper and protect you, and Feet in Motion features shoes that keep your feet healthy. I’ve gathered my dream team at a single location. Now, our clients can look as great as they feel.” FEET FOR LIFE PODIATRY CENTER IS LOCATED AT 17201 CHESTERFIELD AIRPORT ROAD.

A MUTATION IN GENE CELF6 COULD BE THE CAUSE of some behaviors associated with autism, scientists at Washington University School of Medicine published in a recent Journal of Neuroscience study. An error in the gene disrupts serotonin signaling, which regulates breathing, temperature, sleep, mood and learning. During experiments, mice with the mutation exhibited resistance to change and decreased communication, behaviors common to children with autism, 30 percent of whom have abnormal levels of serotonin. Joseph D. Dougherty, assistant professor of genetics, was the paper’s lead author.

Researchers at Saint Louis University, the University of Missouri and the University of Pittsburgh recently made a breakthrough in hepatitis B treatment. Hepatitis B is a leading cause of liver failure and cancer, and while the disease can be treated, it is very difficult to cure. By measuring and blocking a previously unstudied enzyme, SCIENTISTS PREVENTED THE VIRUS FROM REPLICATING in lab tests, a finding that could lead to drugs that suppress the virus enough to cure patients.

relief for thoracic outlet syndrome New studies of the nerve condition that afflicts Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter may lead to improvements in treatment. Thoracic outlet syndrome, which sidelined Carpenter last season, causes numbness or tingling in the shoulder, arm or hand, as well as pain, headaches and muscle weakness. Studies from Washington University School of Medicine, published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery, report that adolescents fare better after surgery than adults and that MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY MAY BE AS EFFECTIVE as traditional surgery that requires five days, on average, in the hospital. Dr. Robert W. Thompson, professor of surgery and director of the Washington University Thoracic Outlet Syndrome Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, was the senior author.

public health potential Telephone coaching is effective in linking the poor to health services, researchers at the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University found. Professor Matthew W. Kreuter, director of the school’s Health Communication Research Laboratory, found that when operators from the national 2-1-1 information call center REFERRED LOW-INCOME CALLERS TO CANCER CONTROL SERVICES, such as mammograms and smoking cessation programs, the callers were more likely to contact those services. Kreuter guest-edited a special issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine dedicated to research about the public health potential of the 2-1-1 call center.

When starting a new fitness program you will see the biggest change in the first 12 weeks. Consistency is important during this time. A customized program that includes nutrition, strength and cardiovascular training, supplementation and flexibility is best.

Exercise of any sort has been shown to improve daytime alertness and may improve quality and quantity of sleep. If you suffer from sleep apnea or other sleep disorders, see your physician as they can address major health problems.

[ PREVENTION AN OUNCE OF

by sara savat

Spring is a time for renewal and revitalization. If you put your health on the back burner this winter, think about making a few positive changes, such as adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet and getting more sleep. These steps may seem simple, but they’ll make a big impact on your overall health and wellness.

[ fitness trends ] healthy sleep, healthy you // If you’re struggling to recover from losing an hour of sleep last weekend to daylight saving time, you’re not alone. “Most people adjust to the new time within a day or two, but others are very sensitive to moving the clocks,” says DR. OSCAR SCHWARTZ, MEDICAL DIRECTOR OF THE SLEEP DISORDERS/ EEG CENTER AT BARNES-JEWISH WEST COUNTY HOSPITAL. “There have been reports of increased rates of depression and suicide associated with daylight saving time.” On average, adults need six to eight hours of sleep each night, Schwartz says. “As a society, we tend to sleep deprive ourselves, waiting until we’re exhausted to go to bed.” But the sleep you miss when you stay up late working can have serious effects on your health. “The most prevalent issue is an increased risk of strokes,” he says. “Short-sleepers also have more problems with weight gain.” People who suffer from sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep, are at an even greater risk for sleep-related health problems, Schwartz adds. “In addition to strokes, obstructive sleep apnea can cause heart arrhythmias (irregular heart rate), raise blood pressure, and lead to heart failure and water retention.” It’s important for people to listen to their internal biological clocks and understand what their individual sleep needs are. “Know the things that will help you sleep well—relaxation before bedtime, winding down, listening to music—and create an environment that is conducive to sleep,” Schwartz says. “Avoid exercising closer than three hours before bedtime. And address any concerns you may have, such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, excessive snoring or restless leg syndrome.”

In recent years, gyms have worked to shed their image as places exclusively for the young and fit. Many now offer a variety of programs and classes designed to meet the needs and interests of novices, hardcore athletes, senior citizens and everyone in between. >> christi gleason, CENTER OF CLAYTON

Two of the fastest growing programs at the Center of Clayton are TRX suspension training and yoga. TRX suspension training is a great format for people who are looking for a tough workout and are bored with lifting weights. It uses a piece of equipment, known as a suspension trainer, and your body weight to deliver a balanced, fullbody workout. The exercises develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability. At the Center of Clayton, TRX classes are small—no more than eight people per class— and involve a lot of one-on-one coaching. The equipment also is available in the gym for members to use on their own or with a personal trainer. Because the classes are intense, I don’t recommend them to beginners. However, it’s a great workout to try one-on-one with a trainer, where there’s less risk of injury. On the opposite end of the spectrum, more people are trying and loving yoga. There used to be a perception that yoga was only for flexible women, but that’s not the case. It’s a great way to learn about your body, and anyone can do it. We even offer a chair yoga class, which is perfect for seniors with limited mobility.

>> brooke mcgee, THE J

Group exercise classes are more popular than ever, and we offer more than 90 classes per week. People tend to get bored on machines and don’t stick to their routines. But classes are fun, offer built-in community and let you change up your fitness routine. It’s important to keep changing and adding things to your workout regimen to help keep your body fit. Later this spring, we plan to offer a new dance-format class, Bokwa fitness. Unlike other dance classes such as Zumba, there’s no step counting or choreography in Bokwa. Instead, participants draw letters and numbers with their feet on the floor. It’s easy to get the hang of this class, because there’s a lot of repetition. Bokwa is a great cardiovascular workout; your feet never stop moving. And the time goes by fast when you’re doing it, because we play

popular music that appeals to a global audience. Anyone, young or old, can do Bokwa. The instructors teach the basic moves and then present ways to step it up for a greater challenge.

>> eric emig, EVOLUTION FITNESS

My favorite fitness trend for 2013 is the mini trampoline workout. Many of my clients have had success with and really enjoy this workout. Trampolines offer a low-impact workout that’s easy on the knees. And because the moves are modifiable, people of all ages and fitness levels can do it. Trampolines work the entire body from head to toe, burning fat, improving endurance and strength, and enhancing coordination. If you’re looking for a break from countless hours on the treadmill, elliptical, bike or stair climber, circuit training on trampolines is a fun change of pace. It’s also an affordable workout—mini trampolines cost about $60. However, they’re not recommended for the elderly with balance issues or for pregnant women.


HEALTH&BEAUTY

[ diet makeover ] People who eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables have a decreased risk of developing many chronic diseases. Yet most Americans don’t get the recommended five to nine servings per day. This spring, give your diet a fresh makeover. >> jessie germanese r.d., l.d.,

GERMANESE NUTRITION CONSULTING The jury is still out on organic fruits and vegetables. There is little scientific evidence that suggests they are more nutritious, and the long-term risk of pesticide exposure is still uncertain (organic fruits and vegetables may still contain some pesticide residue). When it comes to choosing the best produce for your family, it may be more beneficial to look for locally grown fruits and vegetables, rather than the organic label. The nutritional value of fruits and vegetables can decrease over time. Nothing is fresher than local produce, which is often sold within 24 to 48 hours of harvesting, when nutrient content is at its peak. Buying local produce is also a great way to support the local economy and the environment. Regardless of how they are produced, the most important thing is to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables every day. They contain vitamins, minerals and fiber necessary for optimal health, and they are associated with a decreased risk of many chronic diseases.

Tired all day? Snore all night? You may have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. If left untreated, a sleep disorder such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) may lead to serious health and safety risks such as heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, auto accidents, work injuries, insomnia and obesity.

Spring is a time for cleansing and getting the body moving after the winter slumber. Foods in season during spring and early summer are light, cleansing and packed with vitamins, minerals and naturally occurring chemical compounds like antioxidants, beta carotene and folic acid. In the Midwest, these include asparagus, baby head lettuce, spring mixes, baby spinach, peas, mushrooms and strawberries. Kids learn eating habits from their parents, so you must be a good role model. Make fruits and vegetables the focus of meals and snacks. Plant a home garden, include your children in meal preparation, and give them choices, such as raw or steamed carrots with dinner. Come up with nontraditional ways to sneak vegetables into your favorite entrees and snacks. For example, it’s easy to hide kale in a fruit smoothie or pureed fruit in your pancake mix. And keep offering fruits and vegetables to your picky eaters. Just because they don’t like it today doesn’t mean they won’t like it tomorrow.

mental health // Depression is the most undertreated illness in the world, and it can directly affect your overall health, experts note. “Research shows a huge overlap between mental health and physical health,” says DR. MIGGIE GREENBERG, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF PSYCHIATRY AT SAINT LOUIS UNIVERSITY. “People who are depressed experience more pain than people who are not, and they have much worse prognoses for almost all illnesses. There’s almost no physical illness that isn’t compounded by mental illness. And, vice versa: when you’re in pain, you’re much more likely to be depressed.” Everyone feels sad from time to time. There are simple things you can do to improve your mood, such as getting regular exercise and finding ways to connect with other people, Greenberg notes. But depression typically lasts for longer periods of time. “It can be difficult to recognize depression in yourself, because it can sneak up so insidiously that you don’t see it coming until you’re drowning.” Common symptoms of depression include feeling grumpy and irritable and crying more than normal. “Depression can also affect your energy level, making it very difficult to get out of bed,” Greenberg says. “People often isolate themselves and find they don’t enjoy the activities they used to.” So, when should you see a mental health professional? “When depression interferes with you being you, it’s time to seek help.”

SOMERSETS SHAVING OILS

Five o’clock shadow plus dry skin that is like sandpaper— don’t inflict that on your wife or girlfriend. Stay soft even while cold weather strips your skin of essential moisture. It has soothing aloe vera and lavender extract cream to combat post-shaving soreness. And since using it over time will soften your whiskers, it will lead to a more pleasant shaving experience in the long term.

When you’ve graduated from bare-minimum moisturizing, but want a product formulated for your thicker skin and masculine sensibilities, anti-aging is the way to go. When the cream is applied, there’s an instant tightening sensation that will make your skin look and feel more youthful. It also includes zinc, which smoothes out pores and makes skin more even.

Some men are not interested in wearing cologne. For them, and even for some who do, a subtler scent like the fresh, herbal eucalyptus of this all-natural moisturizer is just right. Healing properties in agave, aloe vera and oat extracts soothe and promote the resolution of minor nicks and cuts, while plant-derived compounds are anti-aging, firming and plumping skin that is losing elasticity. $28, WHOLE FOODS AND VITAMIN SHOPPE

When oil is applied to the chin instead of shaving cream, the barrier formed between the blade and your skin is just molecules thick, getting the blade extra close while still providing protection from razor burn and painful nicks. The oils here are blended from lavender, tea tree and rosemary essential oils that calm and improve skin’s texture as well. Though the package is tiny, with just three drops needed per shave, the small bottle will last for up to 90 shaves. $7, SOMERSETSUSA.COM

2 | Allow hair to air dry, or dry with a diffuser. 3 | Using a curling iron, separate 2-inch sections of your hair, and wrap in a spiral down the length of the barrel. (Use a wand curler for best results, as clamp can crease hair)

HOMEGROWN] DR. ERIC GREEN by rebecca koenig PHOTO BY MAGGIE BARTLETT, NHGRI

WHETHER CHALKED UP TO NATURE OR NURTURE, National Research Institute, a position once held by James Watson, who helped discover Human Genome Research Institute director Dr. Eric Green’s early interest in science is easy to trace: For more than 50 years, his father, Dr. Maurice Green, has been a virology researcher at Saint Louis University. “I grew up in a science family,” Eric Green says. “Even as a young child I would hang out at my dad’s lab on the weekends.” A Washington University alum and veteran researcher on the Human Genome Project, the 13-year-long international effort to identify the base pairs of the more than 20,000 genes in human DNA, Green now leads the genomics departments at the National Institutes of Health. Born at Jewish Hospital, where he later studied medicine, Green graduated from Ladue High School. After completing his undergraduate education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he enrolled in Washington University’s M.D.-Ph.D. program in 1981, progressing from a medical student to a graduate student, resident, postdoctoral fellow and faculty member. “I lived in St. Louis for 31 of my first 35 years,” he says. Washington University was at the forefront of the Human Genome Project in the 1990s, and Green was swept up in the historic research. “I participated in the Human Genome Project from the front lines until the end of it,” he says. When offered the “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to move his lab to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., in 1994, Green jumped at the chance. Three years ago, he became the director of the National Human Genome

the structure of DNA in the 1950s. “I have some very big shoes to fill,” Green says. Of his work on the HGP, he says, “It was exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. You knew you were participating in something that would change the face of science. It was an audacious challenge, and an audaciously talented group of scientists coming from around the world. It was controversial. There was a vocal minority who thought it was not a good idea, not a good use of money.” But the project was completed, leaving Green and his collaborators to figure out how to apply their new understanding of the human genome. Under their guidance, genomic theory has become practice in hospitals and laboratories across the world, from cancer treatment at Washington University to infant genetic screenings at the NIH. “We’re doing studies to truly use genome sequences in medical care,” Green says. “For a patient, genomics is going to get relevant.” Already, he notes, doctors analyze the genomes of cancer patients to detect what is awry and determine which treatments will be most effective. When not in the lab, Green passionately follows his native city’s baseball team. “Spread across my couch is a Cardinals towel; I have a pseudo-shrine of Cardinals stuff. I am a die-hard fan and always will be,” he says. He is perhaps even prouder of the research going on at his alma mater. “Everybody knows about scientists at Washington University,” Green says. “Right there, in Cardinals baseball-land, is really so much on the map of the genomic world.”

THE FAVORITES |

Cauliflower Bisque, Black Mussels, Veal Osso Bucco

THE NEW CHEF TEAM of Kyle Lipetzky and Jason Paterno came to St Louis together from The Phoenician in Phoenix, a five-star resort hotel. They’ve completely revamped the menus at the Chase’s Eau Bistro. In general, I’d describe their style as bold; they go out on a limb to pair strong flavors, as in their fennel caponata served with scallops and even the brie crostini with cauliflower bisque. The risks are fighting flavors; the rewards, remarkable taste treats. Lipetzky’s North Dakota roots (and family farming history) are apparent in a dedication to local, sustainably raised provisions. That said, the two chefs must love working with fish, since the menus are dominated by seafood. And all dishes we sampled were liberally salted, so diners who need/want to limit salt intake should say so while ordering. A starter of Cauliflower Bisque ($9) was quite good, with roasted florets and bits of roasted garlic combined in the creamy soup. It was salted and

peppered to good effect, and the accompanying oilsoaked and crisped crostini was laden with melted brie cheese and caramelized onions. In this case, the bits of pungent garlic in the soup worked fine, and the fermented cheese, as well. Truly remarkable was the Black Mussels starter ($12), an innovative and delicious variation on the usual mussels steamed in wine. Heavily infused with roasted fennel bulb, saffron and slices of skin-on orange, the broth, dark and dense, delighted the taste buds with its sweet, savory and salty layers. Similarly intense was the Veal Osso Bucco ($29), browned chunks of tender meat sitting on dark jus, buttery whipped potatoes, pearl onions and royal trumpet mushrooms. Served with the bone and its prized marrow in the center of the plate, this dish was outstanding. Diver Sea Scallops ($29) offered gorgeous, 2-ounce bivalves finished with an appetizing brown

sear, top and bottom. The choice of diver scallops illustrates the chefs’ dedication to quality, as divers harvest these one at a time instead of using the lesssustainable method of dredging the sea floor with nets. The roasted butternut squash and Brussels sprouts were perfect accompaniments. Caponata, a traditional Sicilian relish, competed with those delicate scallops: capers, fine-dice red and green peppers, fennel bulb, cranberries and balsamic vinegar. Additionally, this dish was too salty. A handful of desserts were constructed with the same sense of adventure. Our Sweet Potato Upside Down Cake ($9) was an interesting take on the traditional pineapple variety; the cake was moist and flavorful, topped with cubes of sweet potato, cooked ginger and kumquat-persimmon chutney, a tart compote. Even better was the Chocolate & Lemon Tart ($9), a chocolate cake shell filled with lemon curd and accompanied by dollops of chocolate and caramel sauce.

LEISURE AS A 14-YEAR-OLD WORKING IN A RESTAURANT for the first time, Beth Williams had an inkling that she had found her calling. “I knew then from the smells of the kitchen, and the vibe of it, I was hooked,” she says. Her passion for the work led her to open a catering company, two cafes, and Wildwood fine dining restaurant Table Three. “I worked at many jobs and was fired from many jobs, because I always knew I had a better way of doing things,” she says. “I always knew I was going to own my own restaurant one day.” Williams started her catering business out of her mother’s kitchen when she was 22 years old, then opened Cuisine d’Art Cafe, a French bistro, in Eureka. She later opened a second location in Creve Coeur. In 2009, Williams opened her third establishment, aptly named Table Three, her first upscale restaurant. There, chef Jodie Ferguson prepares cuisine with what Williams calls “an eclectic mix of French and Asian influence.” “Her culinary background is Southern,” Williams says, “and she brings a touch of Southern, Asian and French to the table.” The restaurateur wants her dinner guests to enjoy more than just a good meal. “What I hope they take away from Table Three is a memorable experience and a culinary journey,” she says. “We want to make sure they’re getting the whole experience of the senses.” Diners in St. Louis have been more than receptive to her efforts, Williams says. “The customer base in St. Louis truly appreciates and is supportive of independent restaurant operators,” she says. “They are not chain-oriented customers. They are most apt to support a local business because of the quality of service and products.” As for what lies ahead for Williams, she leaves her future plans open. “You never know,” she says. “There always could be a Table Four.”

Giant Slayer, the fairytale remake that largely falls flat. Minimal character development and little chemistry make it hard to care much about the budding romance between Jack (Nicholas Hoult), a farm boy who accidentally acquires evil magic beans, and Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson), a princess who goes searching for adventure and ends up captured by giants at the top of the beanstalk. The movie’s mythological back story is vaguely interesting, but it’s not compelling enough to enthrall true fantasy buffs. The vivid battles are pretty entertaining, though, as is actor Ewan McGregor as the king’s nimble guardian. SHOULD YOU SEE IT? Cooped-up kids may enjoy it; adults, not so much. —R.K.

T&S HOME 1865 S. MASON ROAD ] by rebecca koenig listing price | $1,295,000 listing agent | mary beth benes of coldwell banker gundaker OVERLOOKING ACRES OF FOREST IN QUEENY PARK, the home Bill and Helene Savage built at 1865 S.

PHOTOS BY STEVEN B. SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY

Mason Road has served as their rural retreat. “It is as quiet and secluded as you can imagine a country vacation home or a ski chalet,” Bill Savage says. Since 1976, they and their horses have loved roaming the private 3-acre parcel. Combining cedar, glass and stone, the couple created their four-bedroom, three-bathroom dream house to fit naturally into a forested environment. “We designed our home and then started looking for a piece of property that would make it really spectacular,” Savage says. “This had a meadow up front perfect for horses and an old farm pond we rehabilitated. And it backed up against Queeny Park’s foot trails and 40 acres of secluded woods. We’ve got a lot of nature around us, and the 1/8-acre pond with circulating stream brings turkey, deer, ducks and herons.” A two-stall stable is a few hundred yards from the house. “We wanted to have horses close by to take impromptu rides in the park, which has terrific riding trails,” he says. The beauty of the woods permeates the home’s interior spaces. “We enjoy the inside of the house, but the main reason we enjoy it is when we’re inside, we feel like we’re outside,” Savage says. Most rooms open onto the 1,500-square-foot multilevel deck. Skylights and walls of windows provide clear views, and natural materials evoke the outdoors. The highlight of the great room, for example, is a two-and-a-half-story stone fireplace. “The fireplace was the centerpiece of the dream,” Savage says. “Fires are what make the charm of a winter special.” There is also a three-sided fireplace in the family room and another in the dining room. The large pool helped Helene, a native of Norway, cope with the hot St. Louis summers. “When you have a pool there, you just jump in and cool off a little bit and go back to what you were doing,” she says. “For me it was a life saver.” The setting has provided decades of peaceful living for the Savages and the three children they raised in the house. “This was a wonderful way to get away in the middle of the suburbs,” Bill Savage says. “You have everything around you, but it’s just as private as if you were in the middle of Missouri somewhere.”

DIANE, ALEXANDRA AND ROD PATERSHUK WITH CHARLIE

TOWN& NEIGHBORHOOD OLIVETTE | THE PATERSHUKS by catherine klene

ROD PATERSHUK WAS A CANADIAN TRANSPLANT looking to settle in St. Louis. He fell in love with an 80-year-old Olivette home—and the realtor who helped him find it. Twenty years later, Rod and Diane Patershuk still sing Olivette’s praises, and both are active in the Ladue School District, where daughter Alexandra is a senior. Diane’s two adult children live in the area with their kids, and she says she can’t think of a better place to watch her grandchildren grow up. Q. WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT OLIVETTE? A. Olivette is this little well-kept secret. I had no idea how great it was. At times, we thought about selling

and moving, but staying in the area. This house has a lot of charm; it’s on a dead-end street and right on top of Clayton. From when we moved in ’93 to now, it’s revitalized. There was originally this feeling that people didn’t want new construction, and now there are more than 300 new homes. Olivette is so close to everything—we can go to Soulard, The Loop, Clayton and Ladue. One of the greatest things is the diversity of people.

Q. YOU ARE CO-PRESIDENT OF THE LADUE HIGH SCHOOL PARENTS ASSOCIATION.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT? A. I think it’s almost like going to private school, but you’re in a public school. People think, It’s Ladue—you all live in million dollar homes, but it’s so diverse it’s unbelievable. I have made great relationships in the Ladue schools. One thing you have to have is parents who really care about education, since we have so many private schools in our own backyard to compete with. Our children at Ladue are getting into the same, if not better, universities than some of these kids. When you say you’re from Ladue, colleges recognize that and treat us like a college prep school.

Q. YOU’LL BE EMPTY-NESTERS SOON. ANY PLANS TO RELOCATE? A. No, and I’m so glad we didn’t buy bigger. I have a house I feel like I can close up when I travel. At the

same time, I’ll always be selling real estate, and I want to see my grandchildren and make sure they go through Ladue schools.

HOMEWORK] DEAR HOMEWORK,

We love our home in Chesterfield but think landscaping would improve the appearance and feel of the home. Our neighbors overhauled all their landscaping and the house looks wonderful! Any ideas to make our house look and feel clean, new and well-maintained? ———REVIVE MY TUDOR REVIVAL

DEAR REVIVE MY TUDOR REVIVAL, AFTER

BEFORE

I would like to bring an increased level of lushness to the landscape and architecture of your home. It has a rather barren feel that can be remedied easily. First, I would warm the color of the stucco so that it melds with the brick and dark wood half-timbering. Next, I would add a copper-roofed front porch. Support this with bold wood brackets and add smaller versions at the wall overhang of the second floor. I’d also add a large cupola to the garage wing. These will all cast some shadows, add some detail and add a sense of depth to the otherwise flat façade. The landscaping needs a major upgrade. Begin by planting some tall evergreens to hide the garage door and, at the opposite end, the house next door. A new serpentine planting bed surrounds the existing pine tree and gives warmth and charm to the bland front yard. These changes bring to the house the kind of welcoming charm for which the best Tudor homes are famous. ———HOMEWORK

HOMEWORK IS PENNED BY PAUL DOERNER, PRESIDENT, THE LAWRENCE GROUP. IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR HOME CRITIQUED, CONTACT US AT HOMEWORK@TOWNANDSTYLE.COM
