[ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR ] Every so often, I do an editor’s letter about grammar—not because I consider myself the final word on the subject, but because readers love it. How do I know? I always hear from them afterward (sometimes to point out the mistakes in my editor’s letter!) Grammar is a tricky business. Yes, there are things that are strictly verboten (although even ‘ain’t’ has made it into the dictionary). There are many gray areas, i.e. colloquialisms and slang once considered unfit for written communication but now acceptable ‘due to common usage’ (i.e. because we stubbornly refuse to give them up). I collect these little nuggets, mostly while listening to TV or radio news. Things like this reference to March Madness: Frank Deford has some comments on the place we’ll all be hanging out in the next few weeks: sports bars. Unless we’re all going to the same pub-grub spot, it should read, ‘places.’ (That’s what our old—I mean former—grammar teachers would have called ‘disagreement.’) The next one is among the most common, which means it should be totally acceptable soon (maybe it already is, and I didn’t get the memo.) These programs help U.S. vets, so many of which are homeless today. Vets, of course, are not a ‘which’; they need to be referred to as ‘whom’ (even ‘who’ is better, although still inaccurate). And in a Polident commercial: Dentures are very different to real teeth. Different takes the preposition ‘from,’ even though (thanks to common usage) we can accept ‘than’—but never ‘to.’ And, in conclusion, a couple of really ear-itating verbal missives many will recognize as malapropisms: We preeminently get referrals from the local VA and Police say they did not purposefully set fire to (Christopher) Dorner’s cabin. —Dorothy F. Weiner Editor in Chief

VOLUNTEERS FROM AMEREN MISSOURI
NURSES FOR] NEWBORNS
by tony di martino BETTY WAS SEVERAL MONTHS INTO A HIGH-RISK PREGNANCY when she lost her Medicaid coverage. She was turned away from a clinic because she didn’t have insurance. That same week, her gas and electricity were shut off because she couldn’t pay her bills. Then she called Nurses for Newborns. Within days, the agency arranged medical care for Betty and her sick toddler, and helped restore her Medicaid benefits. She delivered a full-term baby boy with no complications. Crystal, 17, was five months pregnant when she tried to commit suicide. She was being abused at home by her alcoholic mother. NFN found Crystal a safe place to live, and made sure she had access to medical care and childbirth classes. When Crystal delivered a healthy baby girl, a NFN nurse was by her side. Today, Crystal is employed and has a strong community support system. “NFN is a safety net for families who need a leg up during that critical time before and after they bring a new life into the world,” says CEO Melinda Ohlemiller. “Some of our tiny clients are born with medical problems; others are born to unprepared teen moms or moms who are physically or mentally challenged; still others are born into domestic violence or addiction, or to families whose income can’t cover the basics.” By providing free, in-home visits from experienced registered nurses and offering support programs and preventive care, NFN protects babies at the most vulnerable time in their lives. Established in 1991, NFN serves more than 3,000 infants a year in 25 Missouri counties, with about 1,500 cases open at any given time. Visits include child and maternal health assessments, home safety checks and parenting skills training. Clients also have access to a 24/7 help line and an emergency donation bank stocked with formula, diapers, cribs and other necessities. Demand for services, always high, has intensified since the economy faltered in 2008. “Many parents are still out of work,” Ohlemiller says. “We’re also seeing families who’ve been transferred here by the military and have no one to rely on. We couldn’t keep helping them without generous community support.” The nonprofit’s annual dinner auction, A Night for Newborns, takes place April 21 at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac. The event is co-chaired by Barbara Druhe, Fran Marks and Gloria Wind. Ameren Missouri serves as presenting sponsor. Carrollton Bank will receive the McGraw Milhaven Award. “We hope to raise at least $250,000,” Ohlemiller says. Infant mortality is higher in parts of St. Louis than in many Third World nations, Ohlemiller notes. “We have some of the worst statistics in the nation—babies are in jeopardy just an arm’s length from where we work and shop,” she says. “But our nurses stand up for those who aren’t lucky enough to be born into a safe environment. Every child deserves a healthy, secure start in life, and A Night for Newborns helps make that possible.”

TALK [TOWNS] by bill beggs jr.
Tongues are a-wag after the March 28 episode of Wife Swap, a reality (what else?) TV show on ABC that switches the moms of two incompatible families. One couple in the show is a former Missouri senator and his wife, a conservative radio host: John and Gina Loudon, who now live in San Diego. Gina finds herself the maternal force in a family that believes in finding love both in and out of the marital bond. Meanwhile, when John’s new ‘wife’ decides to create a zone in the household free of politics and religion, the onetime Republican legislator (who served areas including Ballwin and Chesterfield) puts his foot down. Watchable? Try mixing the Tea Party with a pot party. OK, marijuana isn’t portrayed as part of the ‘alternative’ family’s lifestyle. The scenario is more like rigid versus relaxed or, oil versus water. The network trumpets the fact that the episode is first in the show’s history in which one family refuses to participate in the wrap-up roundtable discussion. For more titillating details, visit abcmedianet.com. We are honored and delighted to serve as your source for scams and the knuckleheads who perpetually perpetrate them. Cops in Manchester and Chesterfield report that cashiers have been cheated out of significant amounts of cash at businesses in both municipalities. In Manchester, the register came up $150 short. Surveillance video shows the suspect behind the sleight of hand also is responsible for a similar incident in Chesterfield. (Note to would-be criminals: We’re not going to reveal anything about how to repeat this ruse yourself. Police are tight-lipped; we know nothing. But if you’re planning a life of crime, let us assure you it is no Rubik’s Cube. Oh, and almost all of the places creeps try to hit have
surveillance cameras. They take lots of pictures. Of criminals. Committing the crime.) Some would say it’s an unfortunate sign of the times, but we think it just makes good sense: Kirkwood schools will beef up their complement of school resource officers for the 2013-14 school year. The district presently has two officers covering nine locations; two more will be hired. While not specifically saying that the additional officers are a result of the tragedy in December at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, district officials and police point out that the district has taken other steps to improve school safety and security. Entrances are to be more secure at Tillman and Westchester elementary schools. Digital radios will expedite communication throughout a building. Kirkwood and Webster Groves are among area school districts that conducted practice drills for what to do if a gunman enters the building. Sometime in May, the breads that used to be hand-crafted in Olivette will start to rise in Maplewood. Business in the erstwhile location was good for Great Harvest Bakery from its 2003 opening until about two years ago, when traffic started to taper off, owners say. The bread maker’s new spot will be in the quite hip and ever-happening restaurant row along Manchester Road that includes Las Palmas. A co-tenant will be La Cosecha Coffee Roasters. Wow. What with one more purveyor of the beloved bean beverage popping up in the ’Wood, a visitor could stay awake for days. All that said, La Cosecha will be a month late for Maplewood’s fourth annual Coffee Crawl from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 6, where java junkies can sip offerings from seven different roasters (and two tea brewers) around town.
One of the county seat’s neighboring municipalities also is celebrating its centennial this year: Richmond Heights. The inner suburb began to grow in the late 19th century and thrived at the turn of the 20th century when the 1904 World’s Fair transformed the region. Events open to all are scheduled throughout the year, and descriptions are available in a well-produced, 16-page booklet that can be viewed online as a PDF. The piece provides a glimpse into an era when schools were segregated and people relied in part on streetcars for public transportation. Speakers at the celebration’s kickoff last December included a historian, an architect and Bill McClellan, local newspaper columnist and panelist on PBS’ Donnybrook. A $10 walking tour is slated for April 14; a World’s Fair retrospective for April 17. See richmondheights.org for more information. They don’t call The Lou ‘Mound City’ for nothing. What were those little
mounds dotting the front yard last week? Why, daffodils covered with eight or so inches of goopy snow. Somewhat larger, the mounds that looked like bright white ottomans were the azaleas. And those slumbering, misshapen polar bears in the driveway or along the street? Automobiles. By the time you read this, Palm Sunday’s blanket of wet snow will have melted, trickled into tributaries and flowed into the Mississippi. It’s probably mostly past Memphis by now. Meanwhile, old men sitting on front porches are lamenting: ‘Some stretch of weather we’re having.’ Indeed. Since we live in the middle of everything, we seem to get a touch of the weather everyone else has. Sometimes all on the same day. When it’s 72 in mid-February, count on a 45-degree plunge by the end of the day, accompanied by thunder snow. Sunset Hills had a tornado on New Year’s Eve a few years back. I attended an outdoor wedding reception where they had to put up a tent in a hurry, and the wind almost took it down faster. Patches of new snow are in the photos. It was the

second week of April. We have Canada to the north, the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and when air masses meet here it’s like a date you just know won’t end well. Hey, I’m no meteorologist, but I recently sat next to Angela Hutti, who performs those duties for Fox 2. So, here’s my long-range prediction: Before we know it, one of the old porch-sitters will complain about how hot it is. And the other will remind him, ‘It’s not the heat—it’s the humidity.’ Memories are long; patience is short.
First Congregational United Church of Christ in Webster Groves; the minister used a megaphone. Proponents here and elsewhere are very vocal, saying the issue goes beyond the term ‘marriage,’ extending to property ownership and health care. Nearly everyone has a gay friend, acquaintance or relative. Jean Podrasky, lesbian cousin of Chief Justice John Roberts, wants the high court to overturn California’s law banning same-sex marriage, one of two cases justices are considering, and attended the sessions.
Pundits say the national debate over same-sex marriage is reaching critical mass. Only a third of respondents surveyed 10 years ago favored it; surveys today show the percentage has risen to anywhere from 49 to 58 percent. Sen. Claire McCaskill has spoken in favor. Oral arguments in two cases before the U.S. Supreme Court began last month. On the eve of the SCOTUS hearings on the gay-rights issues, vigils were held throughout the area, both pro and con. One group of supporters gathered at
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. Admitted ice cream junkie Andrew Jung probably felt like screaming when he came to his senses in the St. Charles County Jail after allegedly breaking into a freezer at St. Peter’s Catholic Church last month and helping himself to the frozen confection. Gobs of it. Although probably also soaring on a sugar high, Jung appeared inebriated when police found him a few blocks from the scene. Probable cause? He had ice cream on his face and clothes.
He probably had plenty gunking up his chin beard, too, but the mugshot doesn’t show evidence of that. Maybe he just cleans up well. Jung, of course, could have spent less than 10 bucks at a convenience store for enough ice-cream treats to smear about his face, hands and all over his clothing. But he now faces charges of burglary, stealing and property damage. Perhaps Jung, 24, is on some sort of bizarre spiritual quest. Seems he’s presently on probation for another church break-in.

Back in the 16th century, when the word ‘hoodwinked’ originated, people wore hoods attached to their cloaks, and the word ‘wink’ meant to firmly close both eyes. So the phrase originally meant, quite literally, to be blindfolded when one’s hood fell or was deliberately drawn over one’s eyes. Thieves took advantage of the fashion and ‘hoodwinked’ their victims, or pulled hoods over their faces, before robbing them. But language is a living thing that constantly evolves and by the 17th century, the word had taken on the meaning we use today: blinding someone by trickery or deceit to take advantage of them.
[ Sometimes strangers see St. Louis with a new eye. In March, St. Patrick’s Day Parade Irish Guest of Honor, IRISH SEN. MARIE-LOUISE O’DONNELL described her first visit to St. Louis last May: “I couldn’t believe it when the plane landed because it was like landing in a Forest of Arden with the beauty and the abundance of your trees. It looked as though the buildings were just peeping out from the trees. Your wide streets and cleanliness are extraordinary. And it’s a wonderfully rhythmic name, ‘St. Louis, Mo.’ And the blasted, creamed color of your brick buildings—it is very beautiful.” ]
Theater last month to see War Horse. McCausland caught both the show and The Fabulous Fox for the first time while in St. Louis visiting his mother.

According to Bravin, after 9/11, then-Attorney General Ashcroft argued vociferously with Vice President Dick Cheney over terrorist trials jurisdiction. Cheney insisted military commissions try terrorists, while Ashcroft wanted the Justice Department to handle prosecutions. Braven notes tempers got short ‘and manners unpleasant.’ A deputy White House counsel complained Ashcroft ‘crossed the line, even for a cabinet officer, in his tone with the vice president.’ ]

JEFFREY BREWER, JDRF president and CEO, will meet with local supporters of the fight against Type 1 diabetes April 9 at The Ritz-Carlton. Brewer has a stake in that battle: his 16-year-old son, Sean, was diagnosed with the disease at age 7. “As someone who started as a volunteer with JDRF, I know firsthand the importance of families who share our mission to treat, cure and ultimately prevent T1D,” Brewer says. “Thanks to their efforts and JDRF-supported research, we’re learning more and making great progress.”

A GAGGLE OF KINDERGARTNERS SQUEAL IN DELIGHT as little plastic bees buzz and blink across the floor, navigating a path the kids themselves programmed. “They are able to program their Bee Bots to go three spaces one way, four spaces another way and then watch them travel that distance,” says Lower School principal Margaret Karl. “It excites them about learning and motivates them. It gives them that hands-on experience and reinforces what they have learned.” The Bee Bots are the foundation of Visitation’s Lower School robotics program, which is designed to enhance student knowledge and understanding of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields. By fifth and sixth grades, the girls are programing their own Lego Mindstorms Education NXT Robots to perform complex tasks. Curricula like this encourage valuable technical and creative skills. “It’s not just robotics; it’s all the aspects of STEM,” Karl says. “Everything from robots to building bridges with toothpicks and marshmallows helps foster that engineering thought process early.” Lower School science teacher Marianne Holthaus says the robotics program enhances traditional physics lessons about simple machines. “What’s really interesting is the the critical thinking that kicks in when they have to program, redesign and reprogram,” she says. “There’s a lot of math in measuring the distance and angles where the robots have to go. The girls work in pairs, and it’s a collaborative project.” Visitation also added six iPads to each Lower School classroom this year, from its coed Montessori early education program to sixth grade. “We were able to integrate iPads into so many different ways of learning, and we are excited about it,” Karl says. “For example, math classes could show how they were able to work through a math problem and share with the rest of KINDERGARTNERS GIADA STALEY, MARY HOWARD the class. Another app, Leafsnap, allows students to use the iPad to take pictures of different leaves and explore them further.” Lower School technology coordinator Nicole Cooper says as students today grow up in an increasingly wired world, the knowledge of how to use that technology is vital to their future. “People think apps are just games, but these are tools that help all students in all subjects,” she says. iPad use at Visitation is carefully structured so students aren’t glued to the screen. “They’re not sitting on iPads the whole class,” she says. “Teachers want to engage students, and the iPad apps are an extension of what they are already teaching.” Karl says students and their parents love the strides Visitation has taken to create more tech savvy, STEM-focused girls. “We want them to be confident in everything, from math to science to engineering,” Karl says. “The girls are excited about learning and look forward to coming to school. We’re a project-based school in general, so these programs complement our overall, hands-on curriculum.”

It was a special winter in the Metro Catholic Conference. Chaminade won the league championship, but two other league teams got to spend the last weekend of the season in Columbia at the Final Four. The Chaminade Red Devils won the ultra-competitive league with a 6-2 mark and followed that with a district championship. But the team lost a heartbreaker in the first round of the Class 5 playoffs, falling to Jackson 60-59. De Smet Jesuit tied with CBC for second place in the league with 5-3 records. The Spartans followed their district title with wins over Eureka and Jackson to make it to the Final Four. Two MCC teams matched up in the semifinals, with De Smet Jesuit edging Vianney 58-55. De Smet Jesuit then lost in the championship game to Rockhurst 73-59. The Spartans were led throughout the season by Butler-bound Nolan Berry. He averaged more than 20 points a game while shooting 57.6 percent from the field and almost 80 percent from the line. Jimmy Barton and Alec Bausch, who also are seniors, averaged double-figures for the Spartans. Vianney won only two of eight league games, but the Griffins were among the last four standing in Class ALEC BAUSCH, DE SMET JESUIT 5 after winning a district title and then knocking off Troy and defending state champion McCluer North. It was the first Final Four appearance in school history. “We graduated four starters and eight seniors off last year’s 27-2 team,” Vianney coach Kevin Walsh says. “We knew we had the pieces to be a good team. Our returners, Sean O’Brien and Brad Woodson, have really stepped up their game all year long, and our new players have grown, developed and continued to improve. In the playoffs, our defense was stout.” The Griffins kept their opponents to less than 40 points per game in the districts, sectional and quarterfinal rounds. Woodson averaged 17.4 points per game, while O’Brien added 15.7 for the Griffins, who lost the third place game to Columbia Hickman 65-53. Maplewood-Richmond Heights was the only other area team to win a district championship this year. The Blue Devils won in Class 3, defeating a good John Burroughs team 55-41 in the district championship. But MRH lost its next game to eventual state champion College Prep at Madison 66-49. Ladue, Webster Groves, Marquette and JBS all captured conference championships this season. Ladue shared the Suburban East Conference crown with Jennings and Normandy. The Rams were 21-6 overall. Webster Groves won 20 games and finished a game ahead of Parkway Central and Kirkwood, capturing the Suburban South Conference title. Marquette shared first place with Eureka in the Suburban West Conference, each at 7-1. Lafayette and Parkway South were close behind with 6-2 records. JBS had an outstanding season with a 23-3 overall record. The Bombers won 11 of 12 games in the Metro Conference, winning the VIANNEY league by three games.
Success in the winter led to a great spring break for St. Joseph’s Academy. “How do you spell a perfect spring break?” asks Angels coach Julie Matheny. “MIZ-ZOU.” The University of Missouri was the site of the girl’s Class 5 Final Four and where Matheny and her Angel squad spent the last weekend of the season. It looked to be a perfect ending for the Angels, who made it to the championship game and led 25-15 at halftime. But Columbia Rock Bridge outscored the Angels 20-7 in the fourth quarter to win 45-38. It was an opposite second half in the St. Joe 47-31 semifinal victory over Cor Jesu, as the Angels outscored the Chargers 15-0 in the third quarter after the game tied at halftime. “The key for us to be there has been the consistent play from our seniors complemented by their teammates’ commitment to defense,” Matheny says. Seniors Sydney Stipanovich and Erin Nelson had outstanding seasons for the Angels. Stipanovich averaged a double-double with 15.3 points and 11.8 rebounds a game, while Nelson led the team with a 16.4-point-per-game average, including 22 in the championship game against Rock Bridge. St. Joe’s had an outstanding regular season with a 22-5 record, although it did not result in a MWAA White Conference title. Nationally-ranked Incarnate Word Academy went through the conference, regular season and post-season undefeated. Fortunately for the Angels, they competed at state in the Class 4 tournament, dominating the field. Parkway South and Parkway Central also won Class 5 district championships. Parkway South, which was undefeated in the Suburban West Conference and 26-4 overall, then defeated Parkway Central 50-47 in the first round of the playoffs. Parkway South fell one game short of the Final Four as they lost to St. Joseph’s 72-43 in the quarterfinals. Parkway Central won 20 games overall and finished ST. JOSEPH’S second to Parkway North in the Suburban South Conference. North had an outstanding season, finishing unbeaten in the conference and 25-2 overall. MICDS also had a stellar regular season. The Rams finished 24-3 and won a thrilling district championship game in overtime against Westminster. MICDS had a tough draw after that though, as it had to play Incarnate Word in the first round, falling to the powerhouse Red Knights 61-36.

Yet another state wrestling title at Whitfield, a first-ever Mid-States Hockey Association championship by Saint Louis University High, and appearances in the Class 5 championship game in both boys and girls basketball highlighted another memorable season of sports for area athletes and teams.
APRIL 3, 2013
[ wrestling ] It was another Class 1 team title for Whitfield, the fourth in the last six years for the Warriors. Whitfield finished with 126 points, while Brookfield was second with 109.5 points. The Warriors got the expected results from their three defending champions as Chris Wilkes closed out his high school career with a title at 152 pounds. Wilkes, who will attend North Carolina State University in the fall, won a 7-2 decision in the championship match against Logan Mudd of Logan-Rogersville to finish 52-2 for the season. Junior Rodney Hahn made it three-for-three in state championships, winning at 152 pounds. Hahn, who finished the season at
TIM GANT, CBC
49-2, defeated Mason Mounce of Trenton by a 12-4 major decision in the title match. Senior William Hahn, who will attend Duke University, fell just short of repeating his state title. He finished third at 160 pounds. “We got super performances from the three returning champions,” Whitfield coach Charlie Sheretz says. “But this championship was won in wrestle-backs, and that says a lot about our four guys who competed at state. We had some gaping holes during the season, and we had no margin for error. The likelihood of everybody coming through was not high, but that is exactly what happened. We probably would not have won had the other guys not medaled.” Connor Broyles (106 pounds) and Derrick Swaney (132) pounds each finished fourth, while Kurtis Hahn (126) and Andrew McLaughlin (170) were both fifth. Swaney won a medal, despite not becoming eligible until just before districts. No other area team had a top 10 finish at state, although there were plenty of individual highlights. CBC’s Tim Gant finished 51-5 for the season, which climaxed with a Class 4 state championship at 220 pounds. He defeated Michah Foote of Kickapoo 5-1 in the finals. “Tim’s title is significant for a program trying to make a name for itself,” CBC coach Rocky Streb says. “We’ve shown we can develop elite competitors. Tim had no experience before high school, and in three years at CBC he became a state champion.” Gant’s teammate, Bay Roehr, finished third at 106 pounds. The highlight in Class 3 was the championship by Westminster’s Bennett Lewis, who won at 195 pounds. He defeated Rudy May of Summit by technical fall (16-1) in the title match. Webster Groves’ Marlon Hampton made it to the heavyweight championship but lost to Bailey Sutko of Staley, 7-3. The top performance in Class 2 came from Christian Bledsoe of JBS. He advanced to the championship match at 182 pounds, losing to Makenna Cook of Kirksville 11-2 in the title match.
[ hockey ] It was a magical season for Saint Louis University High. The Junior Bills captured their first Mid-States Hockey Association title as they defeated defending champion and rival CBC 2-1 in the finals of the Challenge Cup at Scottrade Center. Senior Steve Lordo scored the championship-winning goal in sudden-death overtime after CBC tied the game with less than three minutes remaining in regulation. Lordo, who will attend Robert Morris University on a lacrosse scholarship, knocked in a rebound off a shot from Chase Berger. He was named the game’s Most Valuable Player. “The victory was one of the greatest feelings I have experienced in the game of hockey,” says Junior Bill coach Kevin Fitzpatrick. “I had a special feeling about this group. It is most gratifying to see it for the kids. They worked so hard all year and overcame adversity after losing our starting goalie the last week of the season.” Brenden Haselhorst, who had played most of the games in the regular season, broke his hand during warm-ups. Freshman Joe Warnecke shone in the post-season. “We spent little time talking about the injury,” Fitzpatrick says. “I knew that Joe was a very capable goalie who could have started with a lot of other teams.” SLUH defeated Kirkwood and Lindbergh to reach the championship game. The Junior Bills had to come back after losing the first game with the Flyers in the semifinals, winning the second game and the mini game. “The key to this championship is that we had 25 going in one direction,” Fitzpatrick says. “There was never a question about our skill level, but the question this year...is could they come together. We had several heroes in the game, but the biggest factor was one direction.” Three area teams won divisional titles. CBC won in the Southwest Division 1, while MICDS won the Central Division 1 and Westminster Christian won the Central Division 2.
[ girls swimming ] Springfield Glendale took control of the state meet, winning with 190 points. But the race for second place was as tight as could be. Parkway West and Notre Dame de Sion finished tied for second with 151.5 points, while Parkway South was fourth with 151 points (the top four teams earned state trophies). Parkway West finished second, despite having the youngest team at state.
The Longhorns had just three seniors, and their 200-yard medley relay team, which won the state meet and set a school record, was comprised of three freshmen (Caroline Bias, Carolyn Kammeyer and Kristen Petersen) and a sophomore (Natalie Folkins). Kammeyer PARKWAY WEST earned the maximum four state medals, while diver Francesa Giganti finished second. “This is a great group of girls who have the ability to do amazing things during their four years,” Parkway West coach Allison Zeller says. “I am excited to see us improve so we can bring home another championship.” Parkway South coach Sara Gerth was proud of her team’s performance at state. “It was frustrating to get fourth by a half-point, but my girls gave it all they had,” Gerth says. “Finishing fourth was exciting and a great way to end a fantastic season. On top of swimming fast, we had a fun season and a team with great chemistry.” Samm Crocker was one of the Patriot standouts, finishing second in the 50-yard freestyle. Parkway North’s Heather Lundstrom had a memorable final day as a high school swimmer, winning two events and setting the only state record of the meet. The record of 4:55.33 came in the 500-yard freestyle. That broke the record of 4:55.63, set by Eleanor Prewitt-Thomas of Blue Springs in 2009. Lundstrom also won the 100-yard butterfly, missing out by just .04 seconds of breaking the state record, which she set last year. “Heather is the most talented athlete that I have had the pleasure of coaching,” Parkway North coach Bart Prosser says of Lundstrom, who will swim at the University of Tennessee. “She has records both at North and in the state that will be PARKWAY SOUTH tough to break. She is a part of or individually holds 10 of the 12 school records.” Lundstrom is a three-time state champion in the butterfly and also has won state in the 200 IM and 500 freestyle. “Heather is a very humble person,” Prosser says. “She is someone who appreciates her awards and accolades, but at times is embarrassed by her accomplishments. I truly believe that an athlete like that comes around once in a lifetime, and I feel very fortunate to coach the program while she was a part of it.” MICDS’s Kat Friese claimed the diving portion of the state tournament. “Her work ethic and talent make her a wonderful diver,” says MICDS coach Kristen Kaiser. “There are few sophomores as experienced as Kat, so her demeanor at state was calm, collected and confident. She is a fierce competitor, HEATHER LUNDSTROM, PARKWAY NORTH and her hard work, drive and confidence paid off.” APRIL 3, 2013| townandstyle.com

DAVE SCHMID HAS HEARD JUST ABOUT EVERY POP, BANG, SQUEAK and clank a car can make. The veteran mechanic left his job at a machine shop to work for his brother-in-law at Olive and Fee Fee Auto Care and never looked back. Today, he’s a pro at deciphering his clients’ automotive ailments to get them back on the road in no time.
Q: WHY DID YOU SWITCH CAREERS? A: Being a mechanic can be a very rewarding thing. If I had stayed at the machine shop, I would have been
stuck on nights and weekends forever. Then in 1980 I had the opportunity to work 40 or 50 hours a week and full-time days. It turned out to be a very good career for me, and I’m happy with it. I like to talk to people. You don’t have the same repetition every day. It’s a different challenge.
Q: HOW DO YOU STAY ON TOP OF AN EVER-CHANGING INDUSTRY? A: A mechanic nowadays has to know just about everything, from computers to hydraulics to electrical. It
keeps getting deeper and deeper. We have connections with different parts stores, and they send us to a lot of classes and schooling. It’s become a very complex field.
Q: OFTEN PEOPLE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WRONG WITH THEIR CARS. HOW DO YOU DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM? A: I could write a book on all the noises customers say they’ve heard. One of the hardest parts is trying to diagnose what they are trying to explain. I will often get you in the car with me and say, ‘Let’s listen to this together,’ and pinpoint where it’s coming from. Q: HOW DO YOU COMBAT THE STEREOTYPE OF THE OVERCHARGING MECHANIC? A: You get it all day long. I respect people who come in and get a second opinion. I do see mechanics who
rip people off, and it makes me sick. There’s money to be made on just what needs to be done. I take the customer into the car and show them the problem, not just call and say, ‘You need this.’ I like to work with people as much as I can. It makes me feel better that they saw what I saw, and I’m not trying to pull something over their eyes.
Q: WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OWNERS MAKE? A: Not doing their maintenance. Flushing the cooling system, transmission fluid, spark plugs ... Look at the
owner’s manual, find the maintenance schedule and do it. You have to keep up with cars.
now you can read town&style anywhere Go to townandstyle.com/archive and start reading! Every issue is online and available on your computer, smartphone or tablet.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR DREAM CAR? A: I really like Lexus. It’s just a sweet car, well-made and drives nice. WHO MAKES YOUR DAY?
WE ALL KNOW PEOPLE WHO, WITH A SMILE, A FRIENDLY HELLO OR A LITTLE EXTRA HELP, MAKE EVEN OUR WORST DAYS BETTER. IF YOU KNOW A DAYMAKER WE SHOULD FEATURE, EMAIL US AT TELLUS@TOWNANDSTYLE.COM.

Who doesn’t think spring when they see straw bags, T-strap sandals and nautical stripes? Some things are meant to endure forever, even in the fickle world of fashion. Maybe it’s because they remind us of Mom changing out her ‘winter bag’ or of that sailor dress we wore to Sunday school. There is something thrilling about seeing the harbingers of spring pop up all over—along with daffodils and tulips.

I D❤! JAYNE HERMANN & JAMES GRUBB] by rebecca koenig | photos by weber photography
8 | 11 | 2012
JAYNE HERMANN AND JAMES GRUBB CRUISED ON LAKE MICHIGAN from their wedding ceremony to their reception Aug. 11 in Charlevoix, Mich. Eight months earlier, while driving to Fort Worth, Texas, for a friend’s wedding shower, James took Jayne on a detour through the campus of their alma mater, Texas Christian University. At the illuminated Frog Fountain, he got down on one knee and proposed. “One of his friends was hiding in the bushes to take pictures!” Jayne says. She called her parents to share the happy news and was surprised minutes later when they opened the door to her friend’s house, where an engagement celebration had been planned for her and James. The couple chose to be married in Charlevoix United Methodist Church in the remote lake town where Jayne, a Ladue High School alum, spent many family summer vacations. Before the ceremony, Jayne and James took first-look photos. “It was a special moment, him seeing me in my dress,” she says. The whole wedding party rode on the Hermann family’s boat up the lake to the reception at the Belvedere Club, where the band RadioNow played modern hits. “All my friends love to dance,” Jayne says. “We probably danced until 12:45 in the morning.” Jayne and James, who live in Houston, enjoyed their honeymoon in Jumby Bay, Antigua. “It was definitely the best vacation I’ve ever been on,” Jayne says.

[ GOOD FOR THE GUT by mary konroy
What goes on in your gut is important in your overall health. In this edition, we explore some common digestive issues, from celiac disease to heartburn, and discuss the pros and cons of gluten. We also explain the difference between food allergies and food sensitivities.
[ celiac disease ] Unchecked, celiac disease has chronic health consequences. >> dr. dustin james,
heartburn cures // “The best way to treat heartburn may require a multi-pronged approach,” says DR. ROSA KINCAID OF KINCAID MEDICAL ASSOCIATES, WELLNESS AND ANTI-AGING CENTER. In addition to taking prescribed medication, such as Zantac or Nexium, here are a few tips to help douse the digestive fire.
»» »» »»
Eat heavier meals earlier in the day, when you tend to be more upright. When you are in a recumbent position, acid is apt bubble up from your stomach into your chest. Try not to overeat, especially at night. At night, the digestive system begins to slow down. Limit your intake of fried foods. They’re more difficult to digest. They require an increased amount of gastric acid and make the stomach work harder. Having something sit in your stomach longer with more acid creates heartburn.
Natural remedies can help minimize heartburn after it occurs, Kincaid notes. “Take some ginger,” she suggests. “Juice it with an apple. Or drink chamomile tea.” Pineapple juice also is good, she adds. “It contains an extract called bromelain, which calms down the stomach and helps digest foods.” If you have chronic heartburn, see a physician and find out what’s causing it. “Be proactive,” Kincaid says. “Otherwise, it could worsen.”
CHESTERFIELD VALLEY GASTROENTEROLOGY Celiac disease is a hypersentivity to gluten that results in the chronic failure to digest food. One of the biggest dietary sources of gluten is wheat. Consequently, celiac is often called a ‘wheat allergy,’ even though gluten is found in other grains. The immune system of people with celiac disease recognizes gluten as an invader. When they consume gluten, their body revs up to fight the protein with an immunological response. This response causes inflammation that injures the lining of the small intestine and can lead to malnutrition. There are many symptoms, including bloating and chronic diarrhea, although children with celiac often have constipation. And because the small intestine is inflamed, it is unable to digest food properly. Consequently, nutrients pass into the colon, where they’re processed by bacteria and ferment. This can cause foul-smelling gas. Celiac disease is a common in industrialized nations and affects 1 in every 133 adult Americans. If you have frequent gastrointestinal issues, especially a lot of gas and bloating, see a physician. A simple blood test can often diagnose the disease and a gluten-free diet can correct it. However, some people also need steroids.
>> dr. alexandra gutierrez,
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF MEDICINE, WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE In young children, celiac disease usually presents as growth problems (due to poorly absorbed nutrients), chronic diarrhea and bloating. It also can occur in adults with symptoms ranging from bloating to malnutrition. Celiac is most prevalent when people are in their 20s and 30s, and rarely diagnosed after the age 50. On average, it takes four years for a person to be diagnosed correctly. That’s because only one-third of patients have diarrhea at the time of diagnosis, and chronic diarrhea is the most common symptom. Less common side effects include nausea and vomiting, weight loss, and sometimes rashes and joint pain. If someone has a first-degree relative with celiac, either a parent or a sibling, the likelihood of them developing it is one in 20. If you have a second-degree relative with the disease, your likelihood is one in 40. You can’t outgrow celiac disease, but it can be completely asymptomatic with good dietary control.
[ what’s so bad about gluten? ] Gluten can make life miserable for those who are gluten-intolerant. >>
afua bromley, ACUPUNCTURE SAINT LOUIS AND WELLNESS CENTER Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. It’s not a necessity of life, but it’s a staple in our culture because it’s cheap and accessible. Food manufacturers use it to make their products thick and tasty. Wheat grown in the United States has been engineered to contain even more gluten. Gluten isn’t bad except for people who have celiac disease or are gluten-intolerant. People with celiac disease can’t tolerate gluten at all. It causes an inflammation in the lining of their small intestine that can destroy it over time. People who have a gluten sensitivity don’t have celiac and its trademark inflammation, but exhibit symptoms of the disease. Gastrointestinal symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating, gas and diarrhea. Gluten also has been associated with migraines and depression. In general, eat as few processed foods as possible. Pay attention to how you feel after eating certain foods. If you have chronic health issues, try a gluten-free diet for two or three weeks. See how you feel. I don’t recommend a gluten-free diet for everyone; it’s not inherently healthy. You still need fiber and vitamin B12.
>> dr. fred williams, GATEWAY GASTOENTEROLOGY
Because they can’t absorb nutrients efficiently, patients with celiac disease can lose weight and become malnourished. This can have a profound effect on multiple organs and lead to other disorders, including early-onset osteoporosis, infertility, migraines, fatigue and an overall lack-of-wellness, as well as some cancers. If you put patients with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet for a couple months, the inflammation resolves. They have to keep abstaining from gluten, however. Another concern with gluten is our over-consumption of grain. Even if you don’t have celiac disease, you should be eating a healthy plant-based diet, high in fruit, vegetables and lean meats. It’s estimated that the average American adult consumes 130 pounds of wheat flour and between 80 to 120 pounds of sugar each year. And we wonder why we’re fat!

[ food allergy vs. food sensitivity ] Do you like a food that doesn’t like you? If the reaction is swift and occurs every time, it may be a food allergy. >> dr. hamsa subramanian,
ALLERGIST, SIGNATURE ALLERGY & IMMUNOLOGY There’s a big difference between a food allergy and a food sensitivity. A food allergy involves an immune response to a protein in foods. It can produce a range of symptoms. The worst allergic reaction to food is known as anaphylaxis, which can cause breathing problems and result in death. You don’t find this reaction with a food sensitivity. Some children outgrow their food allergies. Others do not. A food sensitivity is a process that occurs when your body is unable to digest a particular food. Symptoms tend to occur gradually and are generally not as severe as with a food allergy. The best and most common food sensitivity is lactose intolerance. Symptoms of a food sensitivity vary and can include heartburn, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, bloating and cramps after eating the offending food. There’s an old Spanish proverb that says, ‘The belly rules the mind.’ If you put something in your belly and you develop symptoms, pay attention. If that reaction occurs every time, get evaluated.

Instead of saying ‘food sensitivity,’ let’s call it ‘food intolerance.’ A food allergy is an immune-mediated process that causes food intolerance. It is a type of intolerance. However, not all food intolerance is a food allergy. A food allergy has certain features. Reaction is swift, usually in minutes, and generally no later than two hours after ingestion. It affects numerous organs in the body. A food allergy can involve the skin (resulting in hives or eczema), the gastrointestinal system (causing diarrhea), and the cardiovascular system, (causing a precipitous drop in blood pressure). An allergic food reaction also can involve the lower-respiratory tract, prompting wheezing or coughing. Food allergies in children often start in their first or second year of life. The most common culprit is milk. But soy, egg, wheat and peanut allergies also are seen in children. Adult reactive foods include shellfish, peanuts and tree nuts. You can eat shrimp 50 times and not have an allergic reaction until the 51st time. Food allergies are acquired in adults, but they’re not age-related.
gluten-free foods // “The biggest misconception about gluten-free foods is that they don’t taste good,” says KELLY BECK, OWNER OF NEW DAY GLUTEN FREE, a bakery and cafe. “We just happen to make gluten-free foods that taste good.” Beck avoids grains, such as wheat, that contain gluten. Instead she blends different gluten-free flours to give her foods the texture and taste people expect. “There was a lot of trial and error when I was testing recipes,” she admits. For Beck, the quest to find the right blend was personal. She has celiac disease and can’t tolerate gluten. “Gluten allows food to bind, but causes inflammation in the small intestine of those of us who have celiac disease,” she explains. “And gluten is found most everywhere.” Thanks to greater awareness about food allergens, grocery shopping is easier these days than when Beck was diagnosed seven years ago. “There are a lot more gluten-free products now,” she says. “Grocery stores have come a long way— Dierberg’s has done an amazing job of labeling its gluten-free foods.” But dining out is still a challenge, Beck notes. “One way to find gluten-free foods locally and when traveling is a free app called Find Me Gluten Free,” she says. “It identifies restaurants that serve gluten-free fare.”

[HOW TO CHOOSE PROM COLOR! by lauren madras | photo by charles barnes
WHILE YOU’RE STILL YOUNG ENOUGH to get away with it, pair your fanciest frock with some extraordinary color. Just be sure to avoid matching your dress to your nails to your shadow to your purse—and follow Bobbi Brown’s expert advice: Play up eyes or lips, never both.
[ in sunshine shades... ] >>WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
Warm dresses of red, yellow and orange are perfect for nights of celebration. Their downfall: they can bring out their color-complements, blue, purple and green, in your skin, making you look paler than you really are. Counteract the effect by mimicing summer skin still to come by applying sunless tanner all over. On the big night, put together a simple, slightly smoky eye, glowing, highlighted cheekbones and a nude lip. WE RECOMMEND: LORAC TANTALIZER HIGHLIGHTER & MATTE BRONZER DUO, $32
[ in sea colors... ] >>WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
With a gown of blue, green or purple, the temptation presents itself to mimic the shade on your lids—but instead, focus on maximizing your mouth. A bright, warm color on your lips will really pop against the cool colors, and looks great in photos, making your teeth brighter and face appear longer. Pair bold lips with a neutral evening eye look. WE RECOMMEND: TARTE GLAMAZON IN FOXY, $26
[ in glam metallics... ] >>WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
Silver, gold, copper, bronze. These glammed-up neutrals are wonderful for their versatility. Take the opportunity to have fun with with your eye makeup. After applying a light primer base, use high-pigment shadows: green with brown eyes, purple with green eyes and just about anything with blue eyes. WE RECOMMEND: MAC COSMETICS EYE SHADOW IN AQUADISIAC, ELECTRIC EEL OR VIBRANT GRAPE, $15 EACH
[ basic black (or white)... ] >>WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
With black, you want to avoid ‘trying too hard,’ and with white, give ‘bridal’ a wide berth. You want to walk a fine line here, embracing your youth and beauty, having fun and bringing a little pop to your look. Bold, colored eyeliner is a perfect way to mix it up. Stay high-fashion by choosing dark, shimmery green, blue, purple or turquoise, and be sure to practice application before the night of the dance! WE RECOMMEND: SMASHBOX SHADOW LINER IN LAPIS, $22
[ in muted tones... ] >>WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
Hunter, beige, navy, mauve. If you’re wearing an understated color, chances are you have a classic, elegant style. Look to old Hollywood for your makeup cues. Deep berry lips and simple black eyeliner make for a perfect and fuss-free face. To kick it up a notch, add a bit of shimmer to highlight cheek and collar bones. WE RECOMMEND: MARK. GLOSS GORGEOUS STAY ON LIP STAIN IN BELLA OR VIBE, $11

THE] STEPS CONCEAL A BLEMISH
by lauren madras WHILE SOME BLEMISHES, blackheads and scars blend perfectly with your normal foundation, others seem to stand out more or appear unchanged. Improve your complexion and feel more confident with our easy-to-remember do’s and don’ts.
DO’S & DON’TS »» Don’t use any tools. Unless you’re an M.D. with a specialty in dermatology (and even if you are!), »» »» »» »»
don’t attack your own skin with tweezers, pore-poppers or other over-the-counter ‘miracle tools.’ If you’re worried about scars or infection, call a dermatologist or plastic surgeon you trust and ask for a same-day appointment. Do find a spot-treatment that works for you and keep it handy in your vanity or even your desk at work. The sooner you respond to your pimple, the more likely you will head it off. Don’t fuss. Even gentle touching will flare up the redness and swelling of your blemish, and fidgeting will draw attention to the spot. Do embrace moisture as your best route to quick healing and avoiding scars. Pay special attention to your nighttime routine during a breakout, and wear a cloth headband to keep hair out of your face. Don’t obsess: No one will be as aware of your blemish as you are.
FOR RAISED, RED PIMPLES 1> Wash your face with a gentle exfoliator, like super model-recommended St. Ives Apricot Scrub.
2> Follow with a simple moisturizer with SPF. Acne treatments make
your skin more sensitive to the sun. Dry skin is actually more prone to breakouts, since your glands can go into oil-producing overdrive.
No One Will Know. Everyone Will Notice.
3> Using a concealer brush, lightly dot the darker shade from the Laura Mercier Undercover
Face, Breast & Body Surgical Procedures
4> Before blending, use the lighter color to dot around the
BOTOX Cosmetic, Facial Fillers, Fat Injections
Pot at the center of the blemish.
surrounding area. Blend and use the concealer brush to tap the setting powder (included) over the area.
5> Continue with your normal routine.
Facial Lasers & Laser Hair Removal Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
FOR A PATCH OF SMALL RED, WHITE OR SKIN-COLORED BUMPS 1> Start with steps one and two above. 2> Using your finger, apply Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector. The skin-colored
makeup is thick and will act as a sort of spackle to smooth-out uneven skin. It’s designed for filling enlarged pores, but it works great for minimizing the protruding bumps as well.
3> Continue with your normal routine, but be sure to use a brush to apply foundation so you don’t lose the effect of the perfector.)

Flora Dora: To The Moon, a gala benefit for the community outreach programs of Circus Flora, gives new meaning to the phrase ‘dinner and a show.’ “There isn’t any other gala that has this kind of experience under the big top,” says Susan Mintz, director of development. Now in its 27th season, Circus Flora was founded in 1987, and it’s the second-oldest continually operating resident circus in the country, according to Mintz. Unlike more commercial productions, the intimate Circus Flora offers boutique shows that aim to sustain circus as a folk art. “We’re a classical, European-style one-ring circus,” Mintz says. “Our performances have a narrative; we really tell a story through our production, and we have an orchestra that actually commissions original music.” After a decade of fundraising galas, Mintz says, the circus is ready to kick it up a notch. “We’re really looking to invigorate, to do something that is representative of what the circus is now,” she says: “a much bigger, elegant affair, although still fun.” Co-chair Kathie Winter agrees. “The theme is really unique and really exciting,” she says. The June 1 gala will incorporate the rich, whimsical aesthetic of the turnof-the-century Georges Melies film A Trip to the Moon. The evening begins with a cocktail reception and dinner for premium-ticket holders, followed by a brief award presentation to honor Alan Wright, a retired Circus Flora board member and Edward Jones partner. “He has done so much for the organization that we wanted to recognize his contribution,” Mintz says. Then attendees will enjoy a special circus performance and live auction, with exclusive prizes such as highwire and trapeze lessons with circus professionals. A dance party under the big top caps off the event.
Among the outreach efforts the gala supports is the Share the Circus program, which distributes between 3,000 and 3,500 free tickets to under-served families through social service, health care and community organizations. Another is the Community Circus Camp Under The Big Top, in which Circus Flora partners with Craft Alliance to host two weeks of free art camp where kids split their time between working on art projects in the Craft Alliance Grand Center studio and interacting with animals and performers under the big top. A third program, Clowns on Call, sends clowns into Mercy Children’s Hospital and Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center to help care for 1,500 young patients a year and make the intimidating environment more friendly. “Clowns are seen as part of the health care team,” Mintz says. “They provide magical distractions: juggle, play musical instruments, do slapstick.” Recently, a partnership with the St. Louis Symphony has sent violinists to join the clown doctors in performing routines to soften what can be harsh settings for youngsters. Expanding the reach of the circus, Winter says, benefits the whole community. “It just brings joy to everybody.”

The party, which the Bruces donated as a Zoo Ado auction item, was the second Titanic-themed dinner they’ve hosted. The first event lasted five hours and featured all 12 courses outlined in the historical cookbook, Last Dinner On the Titanic: Menus and Recipes from the Great Liner. One course called for squab, and, unable to find it, Cicardi Bruce shot some pigeons himself. “The first time I did it, we served the last course in the hot tub, and I floated a little keg of ice (as the iceberg),” he says. This time, Bruce streamlined the meal into five courses, which he prepared himself. The menu included poached oyster bisque, Caesar salad, tilapia with caviar and bearnaise sauce, rack of lamb with pea terrine and fettuccine, chocolate eclairs, and croque-en-bouche, which doubled as the centerpiece. Wine pairings accompanied each course. The table settings included Gallia crystal, Louis XIV-pattern silverware and Austrian service plates from the Bruces’ collection. Bruce offered advice for hosting a formal dinner party. “When people dress elegantly, they generally feel elegant, and it makes a real difference in the tone of the evening,” he says. “It’s a good excuse for people to wear white tie and tails and ball gowns for the ladies. If you can invite guests who are interesting to one another, it works very well. Do not seat couples next to their spouse; that’s important. Plan dinner so you can prepare to some degree for some of the courses so you don’t have to be absent from the table very long.” As for ending the meal with an iceberg in the hot tub, this time the guests preferred to stay dry. “This group wasn’t quite as frolicsome,” Bruce says.

BUSINESS [IN]SIGHT by catherine klene HARMAN MOSELEY DREAMS BIG BY GOING SMALL. When the movie industry ‘went big’ with massive multiplexes, Moseley, a Clayton resident, entered the fray by preserving the intimacy of the boutique movie theater. Now, with eight to 20 screens the industry standard, the visonary owner of STL Cinemas still offers an intimate, personal theater experience. His first taste of the movie theater business came in the 1970s, helping his father sell film projectors. A few years later, Moseley picked up a job managing a local movie theater, learning day-to-day operations on the fly. “I knew absolutely nothing about anything,” he recalls. “I didn’t know how to book a film or run a business. But you learn by solving problems as they come up.” His love for the business kicked off a series of small theater purchases in the 1980s and ’90s. During a time of massive multiplex growth, Moseley was determined to offer comfortable experiences at unique, nostalgic venues. Unconventional decisions like adding espresso and wine to a traditional popcorn-and-soda menu at the now-shuttered Kirkwood Cinema raised a few eyebrows. “There was a big uproar because we were showing Harry Potter with wine,” he says, laughing. “People thought it would be like a sporting event, but they would only have a drink or two while watching a film. We were appealing to an adult audience.” The first of Moseley’s current theaters, The Chase Park Plaza Cinemas, opened when the greatest growth was happening west of the city, not in the historic CWE. But Moseley was eager to tap into that vibrant community with an artsy, upscale movie theater. “To a lot of people, that was a risky move, but I knew that the West End had all those great restaurants and the surrounding area had plenty of people,” he says. Following his success at The Chase, Moseley renovated and reopened the Galleria 6 Cinemas in late 2001 to feature more family-oriented films. In 2004, he opened a single-screen theater at the iconic Moolah Temple on Lindell Boulevard. In addition to a full bar, The Moolah Theater & Lounge offered a twist on traditional stadium seating—couches, a set up inspired by a private screening room Moseley and his wife used to frequent. “We were worried,” Moseley admits. “We were unsure if people would like them, so we went half couches and half seating. Turns out, people really like sitting on the couch with a bottle of wine.” Recent projects have included short-term consulting on MX Movies, a three-screen, dine-in theater downtown. Moseley is already contemplating his next move—adding two more screens to The Moolah by next year. But have no fear, love seat lovers: “Everything will still have couches.” While some worry about the effects of online content and video-ondemand services, Moseley sees new opportunities for shared viewing experiences. “We’re in the infant days of alternative content. Digital projectors allow for all kinds of stuff. The Met Opera, Cardinals baseball, political speeches, World Cup soccer...it’s endless,” he says. “There will always be people who like to go out, sit in a dark room and watch a picture on the big screen. It’s a marvelous form of escape.” 46 |

HARMAN MOSELEY, RACHEL SOKOLICH
jeremy deller by tony di martino
Award-winning British artist JEREMY DELLER’S interactive exhibition, Joy in People, is turning heads at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, where it will run through April 28. T&S recently spoke with the 47-year-old artist, who lives in London.
somewhere between mayberry and metropolis is maplewood
Q Joy in People is an overview of your career
so far, spanning about 20 years. Yet the exhibition is surprisingly cohesive, despite covering such a broad time span during an extremely formative period in your life. Looking back on your work so far, what themes have preoccupied you? A Long story short and in no particular order: bats, cycling, music, politics, pop culture, Stone Age art, anthropology—the link seems to be the power of community and the social value of inclusion.
Q When did you know you were an artist? A I’m still waiting. Q At what point in your life did you decide to
pursue art as a vocation, instead of studying accounting or whatever? A After university, I knew I was more or less useless at most things.
Q Were your parents supportive, or did they urge you to get a ‘real job?’ A They were terrified.
Q How did you stay motivated during the
struggling artist phase? PHOTO COURTESY OF CONTEMPORARY ART MUSEUM A I got by on state handouts until I first achieved a little recognition for my work in 1997. It was bleak, but I kept going. I really didn’t know what else to do.
Q Art is a big business in the United States. You’ve said that you’re not interested in the

money-making potential of your artwork. Has that attitude hampered your ability to get financing for your projects? A No, I’m OK. Making money is not my overriding concern. Ideas excite and motivate me.
Q You like to collaborate with people who aren’t artists. And your art is participatory, blurring the line between artist and viewer. Do you agree with critics who suggest that the artistic ego, usually such a strong motivation in creativity, doesn’t mean that much to you? A Not really. I just hide it better!
Q Your work is often politically and socially charged and meticulously researched, but much of
it is fun to look at and participate in—for example, ‘Valerie’s Snack Bar,’ a functioning replica of a cafe in Manchester, England, where St. Louisans who visit the exhibition can enjoy tea and cookies. Has the inherent humor and accessibility of your work ever kept critics from taking you seriously? A Occasionally. But humor is a way of seducing the audience into paying attention. People, including critics, tend to take art very seriously. They probably shouldn’t.
Q How is the role of the artist changing with changing times and technology? A We’ll see. We’re still waiting for the digital Warhol.

Q If you could no longer express yourself through art, what’s the one thing you’d most like to say to your fellow humans? A Help others. If you can’t help, can you spare some change?

Caesar Salad, Pasta Reagan, Veal Scaloppine with Cognac Cream, Linguini Fruitti con Mare, Lobster Ravioli
CARMELO AND FRANK GABRIELE are with a massive fountain and twinkle-lit trees that celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their Il Bel Lago restaurant in Creve Coeur. The brothers, who learned the business at their father’s storied spot, Giovanni’s on the Hill, have successfully brought those delicious Old World Italian flavors to West County. And they carry on the Hill tradition of authentic Italian cuisine offered in plentiful portions. Additionally, the Gabrieles have ushered in something else with a new venture, Cini, a casual counter-service place where they offer several varieties of arancini (Italian rice balls) and a limited menu of other items. Il Bel Lago gives diners an upscale atmosphere, and you get the sense there are many ‘regulars’ who either perch at the bar, with its TVs and panoramic windows, or dine in the low-lit main room. Tables are quite private and well-spaced, and booths are even more intimate. Hands-down, they have one of the most attractive patios in town,
provide privacy along with the charm. The food here is solidly good, based on imported Italian staples like tangy San Marzano tomatoes, cognac and parmigiana reggiano. A Caesar salad ($9) was the epitome of what it should be: crisp, bite-size romaine; salty, tangy dressing; pungent anchovies; and thickly shaved imported parmesan. House-made Lobster Ravioli ($10), the ravioli del giorno, was notable with tender pasta skin, chunks of shrimp and lobster inside (not that ground mush so often served) and a luscious heavy cream sauce with liqueur. The Pasta Reagan ($16), a dish served at that president’s inaugural dinner, was excellent. Bow-tie noodles combined with cream and lightly smoked, flaky salmon made for a very good combination. The menu offers several veal dishes, including a daily special. Ours was Veal Scaloppine with

PORCINI | Especially earthy, woody wild mushroom usually purchased dry, then soaked before use. Alternative names include cepes, boletes and steinpilze. SAN MARZANO TOMATOES |
This heriloom tomato favored by chefs resembles the plum tomato, but is thinner, pointier, has thicker flesh and fewer seeds, and has a more intense sweet flavor.
COGNAC | The finest brandy, double-distilled after fermentation and hailing from around the western French town of Cognac. The more stars on the label, the longer it’s been aged in oak.

FAVORITE STL RESTAURANT
>>This is where I go in the neighborhood for authentic Italian. St. Louis is known for this kind of food!
Cognac Cream, an incredibly rich dish with the sweet tinge of brandy and the woody intensity of porcini mushrooms. The veal itself was tender and well-flavored, which came through even its heavy sauce. On the plate was a nice side of crisp-steamed seasonal veggies: carrots, broccoli and zucchini. A plate of Linguini with Seafood ($19) was teeming with goodies, making it more like eating a fish dish with noodles, rather than pasta with a little fish mixed in. There were shell-on clams and mussels, along with chopped clams and omnipresent bits of fish, including salmon and white fish. The broth was olive oil and butter-based with a little bite from cayenne, and dotted with cherry tomatoes and shiitake mushrooms. For dessert, we ordered the Serendipity Spumoni ($6), two jumbo scoops of the tri-colored ice cream. Every bite was filled with yummy pistachio, maraschino cherry and chocolate flavors.
My favorite place to eat is at home, with my wife Lisa and our three kids.

INVEST IN ART More than 3,000 artists have completed the Regional Arts Commission’s ‘Artists Count’ survey, making it one of the largest research studies of its kind in the nation. It presents a clearer picture of who our regional artists are and how they live and work. According to the survey, only 29 percent of St. Louis artists can dedicate themselves totally to their art without taking on extra jobs, and 46 percent earn $25,000 or less a year. So, starting this year, RAC will begin awarding 10 artists a $20,000 fellowship each to use any way they please. Until now, the commission has funded arts organizations, not individuals. RAC executive director Jill McGuire describes the fellowships as “a financial investment in the careers of selected artists and in the cultural vibrancy of our region.” KEN LUM, CLAY MODEL FOR THE SPACE BETWEEN SCOTT AND PLESSY. LAUMEIER SCULPTURE PARK COLLECTION. COURTESY THE ARTIST, PHILADELPHIA
A WHOLE LOT OF ART Actually, it’s really more of an empty lot on Washington Boulevard in the heart of Grand Center. But The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts have launched a competition to fill it with something wonderful (and art-filled)—a temporary construction, landscape, media presentation or piece of public art. The idea is to demonstrate how art can transform an ordinary space into something that touches people in their daily lives. The winning individual or group will receive a $50,000 project budget and a $10,000 honorarium.
THINK SPRING Laumeier Sculpture Park has received major financial backing from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and The Trio Foundation of St. Louis for its upcoming exhibition, The River Between Us (April 13 to Aug. 25). This collaboration with arts organizations in St. Louis and New Orleans will bring to Laumeier commissioned sculptures and music and dance performances that celebrate the roles played by both Mississippi River cities in shaping America. AND THE FINALISTS ARE Teen Talent Showcase April 12 offers an evening of free entertainment as the Fox Theatre presents the finalists from among 155 original performances by area high school students. A project by Mary Strauss and the Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation, it gives talented teens the opportunity to win training scholarships and opportunities to perform at area venues. IT’S ABOUT COLOR The next big exhibition at the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts features the work of American painter, sculptor and writer Donald Judd. Including more than 50 objects, wall pieces and drawings, Donald Judd: The Multi-Colored Works is the first exhibition ever to explore Judd’s concern for the element of color. Opening May 14.

BRIDGE WITH BL♠ND
by kenneth bland THE FOLLOWING HAND illustrates
important bidding, play and defensive concepts. The hand:
NORTH ♠ 9742 ♥ 10 7 5 ♦ A 9 5 ♣ 10 7 6
WEST EAST 6 ♠ ♠853 ♥ A 9 8 ♥6 4 3 2 ♦ J 10 8 7 4 ♦K 6 2 ♣ 8 4 3 2 ♣K Q J SOUTH ♠ A K Q J 10 ♥ KQJ ♦ Q3 ♣ A95 The bidding: South West North East 2♣ pass 2♦(wtg) pass 2♠ pass 4♠ pass Pass pass The concepts: 1. This hand should be opened 2nt or 2 clubs then 2nt. Strong, balanced hands with a five-card major are easier to bid when opened with a no-trump denomination. Single-suit, strong two bids almost always have a six-card or better suit. As the cards lie, nine tricks at no trump for the declarer are assured. 2. Defense leads the ♦ Jack. Strive to lead the top of a sequence. (K Q J, Q J 10, J 10 9) Three cards in order constitute a sequence. Beware when leading top of a broken sequence (Q J 9, J 10 8). By leading from J 10 8, West gave declarer a chance to make four ♠.
3. Take your time as declarer when playing to the first trick. The play: West led the ♦ Jack low from dummy, King from East. As declarer, if you play low from your hand at the first trick you can’t make 10 tricks. Declarer must unblock the ♦ Queen, analyzing the opening lead. Win any return; draw trumps and finesse ♦ nine and discard a ♣ on the ♦ Ace for 10 tricks. As players, we need to go through a mental checklist (bid, play, defend) every hand!
tip of the day]
Q. Kenny, opening leads can be critical to
the outcome of a hand. Can you give me any advice to improve my opening leads?
A. All bridge players would like to be better opening leaders. Some quick tips: Listen to the opponents’ bidding. If your partner bids, lead his suit. Remember the old axiom: Partner, if I don’t lead your suit, I’m void or I have your Ace. Lead top of sequences. Three cards in succession are considered sequences (K Q J, Q J 10, J 10 9, 10 9 8). Be aware that leading from broken sequences (Q J 9, J 10 8, 10 9 7) can be risky.

Why Replace Missing Teeth? Research shows that when just one Missing TooTh isn’t replaced,
up to 20% of adjacent teeth will be lost in the next 4 to 8 years.
A single tooth dental implant makes sense considering: • the longer the tooth is missing, there’s a greater likelihood of bone shrinkage; • just one lost tooth shifts the burden of chewing to the remaining teeth, causing them to wear faster; • the space left by the missing tooth causes remaining teeth to shift, creating spaces, food impaction, bite collapse, chewing alteration, TMJ pain and susceptibility to gum disease.
Getting a dental implant is a big decision. find out what’s involved in replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant. All procedures are done in our office, with affordable payment options and the latest technology. call us today for a complimentary consultation with dr. Peter Pagano.

ON THE ROAD >> Jack Kerouac’s classic novel has served as the
bible of rebellious teens and 20-somethings for generations. The cross-country story of self-discovery has always been about the characters more than the plot, and plenty of big-name actors (from Viggo Mortensen and Amy Adams to Terrence Howard and Kirsten Dunst) appear in minor roles. But credit goes to Sam Riley and Garrett Hedlund, who play Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, respectively. Hedlund’s Dean is a wonderful cross between Hunter S. Thompson and James Dean, a man so wild about living that he burns everyone around him and finds himself alone. The film drags at times, but seeing it might inspire a few young, less-read hipsters to pick up the book for the first time. SHOULD YOU SEE IT? Yes, but buy the novel to truly understand Kerouac’s greatness. —C.K.

T&S HOME 13303 MANOR HILL ROAD ] by rebecca koenig listing price | $1,699,000 listing agent | julie lane of janet mcafee real estate INSPIRED BY THE ARCHITECTURE OF FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT, Jack and Linnea Howard built a custom house at 13303 Manor Hill Road in 2008 that fits in with its forested surroundings. The wooded neighborhood in Town & Country appealed to the Howards because of its acreage, convenient location and quiet but friendly atmosphere. “It’s a fabulous lot,” Linnea Howard says. “It’s bordered by a common area that would never be developed; the woods that surround our lot are never going to change.” Constructing a residence that showcased the forest was a top priority. “We really wanted it to blend into the environment,” she says. “That’s why it’s a ranch with the low-slung roof. We wanted it to look like it had always been here. I think we accomplished that.” The couple spends a lot of time in their outdoor living areas in order to enjoy the natural beauty. Shaped like a V, the house hugs its lot so the backyard is almost entirely shielded from the street. “When you’re in the backyard in the summertime, basically you see no neighbors at all,” she says. “That’s really wonderful for the pool.” The lanai has a television, two-sided, wood-burning fireplace and retractable screens, making it a three-season space. There’s also an outdoor kitchen with a refrigerator, grill and counters. The couple planned the interior as thoughtfully as the exterior, using stone to create an Aspen-like feel. “The space is amazing because the architect did a fantastic job giving us an open concept. It all flows beautifully,” Howard says. “We wanted it to be very conducive to entertaining. You can see the views from PHOTOS BY STEVEN B. SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY anywhere in the house. When you’re in the kitchen, you can interact with the people outside in the covered lanai, and that interacts beautifully with people on the multilevel pool area.” The walkout lower level has an exercise room, music room, bar and billiards area, bedroom and bathroom. In addition to the master bedroom suite, there are two private suites upstairs with their own bathrooms. Lighted niches throughout the home display artwork, like Jack’s collection of guitars. “The one piece we’re most excited about we had done by a visual artist from Oregon, Walter Gordinier, who does cast glass,” Howard says. The four-panel glass screen separates the foyer from the dining room. “That will stay for the lucky owners to enjoy,” she says. The Howards are moving to Kirkwood to downsize. “Circumstances in life don’t let you stay as long as you like,” Howard says. “This has been a wonderful home.”

by tony di martino CHRIS VATTEROTT WAS BORN TO BUILD AND SELL. The managing director of Enclave Bellerive, a luxury homes development at Mason and Ladue roads, also manages rental properties, lists and sells real estate, and serves as officer/director of CF Vatterott, the family business. He’s a son of the late Charles F. Vatterott, who began the family building empire in 1919. Chris and wife Nancy live in Olivette. They’re proud parents of Elle, who just returned from teaching underprivileged kids in the Dominican Republic, and Philip, a first-year resident at the Mayo Clinic. I knew I was destined to be a builder at 12 years old, when a neighborhood buddy and I hammered together a raft and christened it down the street at Wallace’s Pond. I built my first house with my cousin Ed Vatterott when we were 20 years old. It was a small A-frame on 3 acres in Warren County, nothing to shout about but the price—$10,000. Those were the days. After graduating from Colorado State University with a double major in finance and real estate, I joined the family business as a laborer. Once I felt I had a handle on it, I bought four lots, built homes and sold all four. My father was a driven man who created an empire while fighting for social justice. He sponsored a soup line during the Great Depression, and was one of the first builders to construct homes for everyone, regardless of race. He was instrumental in desegregating Catholic grade schools, and paid for a private bus to transport local civil rights leaders to march in Selma, Ala. Among his many innovative professional achievements, he designed and built the Mary Ridge subdivision in St. Ann, the first planned residential community in St. Louis. Enclave Bellerive suffered, like all developments, during the worst building recession in history. We’re still selling below our total cost, but prices are starting to rise. What really saved Enclave Bellerive is there’s no debt on the property. Buyers want to feel their investment is safe. Personality issues are an important red flag in the business world. A guy once tried to hire me to do some work on a house he wanted to sell, but he wanted a cheap, temporary fix. When I pointed out the benefits of doing it right, he told me he didn’t care. To his amazement, I told him to find a builder who also didn’t care, because I don’t do substandard work. I packed up my tools and walked away.

HOMEWORK] DEAR HOMEWORK, I recently purchased a home that has everything I need except curb appeal. The front is dominated by a two-car garage and you can barely see the front door. There is vinyl siding, but I am envisioning a cottage-style home with stone accents and a large welcoming front porch and door. I am willing to tackle construction to make the front door more prominent without dismantling the garage. ———WORK YOUR MAGIC
DEAR WORK YOUR MAGIC, When I first saw the photo of your home, I feared I did not possess the powers necessary to “pull a rabbit out of my hat.” It is fairly common these days to see a front elevation compromised by a double-garage door. It is rare, though, to see an elevation completely consumed by one! It will take an entire bag of tricks to reverse this situation. The most important thing is to use a more charming, carriage-type garage door, and paint the front door a more vivid color so it will be seen from the street. Additionally, I have amplified the moldings around the garage door, widened the front porch with an arched motif and beefed-up the columns. To really make it sing, I suggest having it feel like a European ‘arrival court’ with paver edging, patterned concrete, brick light piers and a property line evergreen hedge. Finishing details like window moldings, flower boxes and flower beds add details to delight the eye. It’s still an elevation dominated by a garage door, but by drawing the eye to other distractions, you won’t notice. I hope these ideas help you and anyone else with a similar problem. AFTER
