[ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR ] When you work with words all day long, they can get on your nerves—rather the abuse of words can. Language sticklers themselves may not be perfect, but at least they strive to protect the English language from assaults that erode its integrity. Let’s face it, if we misuse a phrase long enough, it becomes acceptable through ‘common usage’ (like ending sentences with prepositions—which there is plenty of). And just like that, we’ve lost a little bit of our language heritage. Does it matter? I’m not sure, but at the very least, shouldn’t communication professionals (writers, editors and broadcasters) be just that: professional? Which is why I often record on-air snafus (that, and it helps diffuse the annoyance). Take the very common noun-verb disagreement issue. ABC morning news likes to announce, Here’s Linda and Neal at ESPN; that may sound fine, but it actually should be, Here are Linda and Neal. Same with this from the CBS evening news: Neither of these storms are severe. ‘Neither’ and ‘either’ require a singular verb, Neither is... More egregious is the malapropism, when a word is misused in place of a similar-sounding one. CNN aired the following regarding the missing Malaysian Air flight: We are in unchartered legal territory. They meant ‘uncharted.’ And it’s embarrassing how often a ‘beauty regime’ is mentioned, as if products are lined up on the bathroom counter, all dressed up in military garb. Of course, the word should be regimen. Then there’s the misunderstanding of quantity words, as in this one from CBS: You need less people to fill online orders. ‘Less’ refers to volume. With people, you need to use ‘fewer,’ as in, Fewer people care about word usage these days. —Dorothy F. Weiner Editor in Chief

BAD GIRLS HAVE ALL THE FUN—UNTIL THEY FALL IN LOVE. Violetta, a carefree courtesan, is living the high life in Paris when she falls for Alfredo, a nice guy who adores her. She renounces her wild ways and moves to the countryside with him. But her past catches up with her. Alfredo’s father shows up and asks her to end her shameful relationship with his son. Heartbroken, Violetta pretends she no longer cares for Alfredo and returns to the party life in Paris. When Alfredo learns she still loves him, he rushes to her side. They profess eternal love for each other—and then she dies of consumption. If you think this sounds like something out of an Italian opera, you’re right. It’s the plot of Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata, Union Avenue Opera’s season opener. The beloved tragedy has brought audiences to their feet since 1853 and inspired the movie Camille, starring Greta Garbo. It comes to Union Avenue Opera July 11 for a two-weekend run, sponsored by Raymond James & Associates. “La Traviata kicks off our 20th festival season with great style,” says conductor Scott Schoonover, founder and artistic director of UAO. Sung in the original Italian with an English translation projected on either side of the stage, the opera features a full orchestra and a 20-member chorus. The cast, a combination of local and international performers, includes Zulimar Lopez-Hernandez as Violetta and Riccardo Iannello as Alfredo. The production is directed by Tim Ocel. Schoonover founded UAO in 1994. “Our mission, then as now, was to provide professional opportunities for gifted, emerging artists and to offer vibrant opera experiences at affordable prices to a diverse audience,” he says. The 2014 season, which runs July through August, includes productions of Andre Previn’s A Streetcar Named Desire and Wagner’s Siegfried. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, UAO initiated Crescendo, an outreach and training program open to undergraduate students at eight area music programs: Webster University, University Missouri-St. Louis, Washington University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Southern Illinois College, McKendree University, Missouri Baptist University and St. Charles Community College. “It’s a free, hands-on, performance-based training program developed to further the education of young artists as they prepare to join the arts community,” Schoonover explains. The inaugural class received $3,000 in scholarships, and several graduates are featured in the La Traviata chorus, he adds. UAO artists performed at a recent open house when Raymond James moved to 9900 Clayton Road in Ladue. “It was the greatest housewarming party ever!” says Raymond James managing director Mike O’Meara. “Some of our employees are involved with UAO, so it has a special place in our hearts. We believe in giving back to the community, and supporting cultural endeavors is just one of many ways we say thanks. The arts are essential to the health and reputation of our region. By presenting world-class entertainment and giving young artists a stepping stone to success, UAO shares our commitment to keeping St. Louis strong.”

THE PULITZER ARTS FOUNDATION, formerly The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, will temporarily close in late August for construction of two new galleries. The galleries, on the building’s lower level, will increase programmable space by nearly 50 percent. The expansion is the first major alteration to the Tadeo Ando-designed structure since it opened in 2001. The Pulitzer, located in Grand Center, will reopen in May 2015.

“ cut to the quick ”

phraseology [ freyz • ŏ • lō • gy ]

When you cut or tear your fingernail to the quick, you know it immediately. It hurts! The quick is any area of raw, unprotected flesh that’s highly sensitive to pain. The word’s usage as a noun is Scandinavian in origin, from the 12th-century Old Norse kvikr, or living, and kvika, sensitive flesh. The phrase ‘cut to the quick,’ often found in battlefield accounts, meant someone had suffered a deep, physical wound. But by the early 1500s, the phrase and a couple of its cousins were being used to indicate a deep emotional response, with ‘touched to the quick’ meaning ‘deeply affected,’ and ‘stung to the quick’ meaning ‘emotionally wounded or distressed.’ The expression was in common usage in the U.S. from 1850 on.”

TALK [TOWNS] by bill beggs jr.

Last month Mercy Health broke ground on what will be the first dedicated ‘virtual care center’ in the country, according to health system officials. The facility, set to open next year near the intersection of Interstate 64 and Clarkson Road in Chesterfield, represents a bold step in telemedicine—monitoring patients around the clock via data flow, video and audio. Officials say critical, time-sensitive information will be available across Mercy and shared with other providers through partnerships, as well as with large employers. The four-story command center, an investment of more than $50 million, will accommodate 300 physicians, nurses and other healthcare workers dedicated to serving patients remotely; many are rural and/or elderly with conditions (e.g., diabetes) that a medical team can keep tabs on via electronics, without necessitating a visit to a hospital or doctor. The new complex will house the only single-hub eICU anywhere in the country. For patients and the provider, cost savings may be incalculable for the estimated 3 million televisits expected over the next five years. Impersonal? Try scheduling an appointment with an overbooked, harried doctor on any given day. Didn’t someone once say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?

In their never-ending quest to show us how to make practically nothing really look like something, Thrift Shop Divas visited a Webster Groves High School fashion design class last month. The online reality show, shot in St. Louis, has a very special twist: The clothes and accessories come from Goodwill. And the ‘models’ are people without much discretionary income who need a wardrobe to start a new phase in life. Selecting the clothing is one thing; the divas helped a man with autism shop for a snappy outfit he could wear for a presentation about his life challenges. One of the divas is an ‘upcycler’— she transforms alley finds into suitable furniture, for practically nothing besides elbow grease. In the episode assembled at WGHS, the divas worked with students to put together outfits for a single mother intent on a PHOTO : COOLFIRE STUDIOS

Knuckleheads still walk the earth, doing things that most self-respecting dinosaurs wouldn’t think of doing. OK, dinosaurs probably didn’t think, so let’s just say cavemen and get those low-brow characters all riled up instead. But head-scratching, what-werethey-thinking activity continues apace in Ballwin and Manchester, to wit: Two pairs of Blues tickets disappeared from the kitchen counter of a Ballwin home. Luckily the fans were able to get replacements, only to go to the game and find their seats occupied by people who’d bought the original tix on Craigslist. The alleged seller? A woman who’d been hired to clean the fans’ home. Although it appears the gloves stayed on and things worked out between the actual seat holders and the folks who bought their tickets, the house cleaner got the smack down: She was charged with stealing and held on $7,500 bond. Meanwhile in Manchester, a bank teller made off with $3,500 via some fancy accounting that really was just a new spin on the old shell game. But the teller, 19, only managed to hold on to the loot for a while. Next morning, co-workers discovered a resignation letter … and that his drawer was a couple Benjamins short. Now, isn’t this a job where the drawer has to count down to the penny at the close of business? Anyhow, he confessed. We surmise the resignation letter was moot.

career as a pharmacist. How’d the show link up with the school for this episode (to air Aug. 12)? It was a ‘who you know’ kind of thing: Susannah Newman (the feisty one) is a 2002 WGHS grad. Local shop Coolfire Studios is behind the show, which can be found on YouTube. If you haven’t seen an area billboard advertising the venture, you’re driving with your eyes closed. Monsanto is no stranger to protests. Gatherings ranging from a handful to hundreds of people have made their displeasure known to the agrochemical giant. On May 24, a large group protested against genetically modified foods, also alleging the company is largely responsible for declining honeybee populations, among other malfeasance. Protesters say the contingent outside the company’s global headquarters in Creve Coeur was just one of nearly 300 demonstrations against the company held nationwide that day. One poster read, “We are not science experiments.” The demonstration was peaceful and there were no arrests, cops say. But there have been in recent months, in the wake of a new ordinance that has made gatherings in the Olive Boulevard median illegal. City officials ruled that

the median is part of the roadway. Basically, keep your business out of the street. Meanwhile, a statement from the company: “(Monsanto is) committed to having an open dialogue about food and agriculture—we’re proud of the work we do, and we’re eager for people to know more about us. We’re also proud of our collaboration with farmers and partnering organizations that help make a more balanced meal accessible for everyone. Our goal is to help farmers do this using fewer resources and having a smaller impact on the environment.” The clock may be ticking on the historic U.S. Route 66 bridge across the Meramec River just north of Interstate 44 near Eureka. Not only is this Warren deck truss bridge one of only three remaining in Missouri, it’s also the only connection between the east and west sections of the Route 66 State Park, established in 1999. But it’s inaccessible to pedestrians and vehicles and may come down next year. MoDOT closed the bridge in 2009, cutting off a museum in the beautiful period road house and lodge on a bluff to the east from the interpretive center in Times Beach. Plenty of history here, from the Mother Road to the notorious dioxin scare that cleared that river town. Plus, it’s scenic. MoDOT used part of its demolition budget to remove the concrete deck, paving the way for investors or organizations to rehab the circa-1932 structure. What a cool route for cyclists and pedestrians it could well be again. Alas, the bridge has landed on Missouri Preservation‘s Most Endangered Historic Places list for 2014 … which, come to think of it, might not be a bad thing after all. Perhaps it could be the claxon call for a would-be rescuer. Sure sounds to us like a project for those superheroes in green capes at Great Rivers Greenway District. Come next year, the kids at Community School in Ladue will be able to fully appreciate what had been partially hidden behind construction fencing for a year: The $4 million Centennial Arts Center. Construction began in June 2013 and was completed in April, running throughout the school’s yearlong 100th anniversary celebration.  During construction, kids were treated to tours of the project, which was completed a few weeks before the close of this school year. The addition has an auditorium that seats 500; the performance space already has hosted two theatrical productions. Adjacent classrooms support the school’s Integrated Arts Education program. Drama, art, music, band, a multipurpose room and small break-out rooms provide ample space for faculty and students to learn and create. Did we say ‘ample’? It’s 19,300 square feet of ample.

By the time the humane society rescued him, the puppy’s head was so swollen that he looked like an extra in an episode of Scooby Doo. Some cruel person or persons had wrapped and tightened a bungee cord around his neck. But less than a week after he was picked up in North City by Humane Society of St. Louis personnel and subsequent emergency veterinary care, the little trouper’s head had pretty much returned to normal size.

Mark Furrer, new mayor of Sunset Hills, was a write-in candidate who upset incumbent Bill Nolan in April. Neither one could have been more surprised. Furrer ran, essentially, on one issue: To stop QuikTrip from building a new gas station and C-store on a popular commuter parking lot at Gravois and Interstate 270. Well, the will of the people has been done. Already. Following a meeting with Furrer scarcely a month after he took office, QT withdrew its proposal to build on the spot. What’s next for this wunderkind—a force-field to keep tornadoes from touching ground in his municipality?

Meanwhile, they dubbed him Wilson, for the volleyball so essential to Tom Hanks’ character in the movie Cast Away. A few leads came in about who may have done such a heinous thing to the little lab-looking fellow, but most callers were curious as to when he would be put up for adoption. The good news? Soon. The bad? That things like setting a dog on fire or swinging a cat against the wall (to cite only two other recent examples of animal cruelty) ever happen in the first place.

BOOKSHELF BOOK AND WINE CLUB]

by stephanie zeilenga

ABOUT THE CLUB From law school graduation and the beginnings of high-powered careers to plenty of promotions and adventures with motherhood, the Book and Wine Club has been there through it all. It was founded in 2002 by lawyers Christina Moore and Cicely Lubben. “We had just finished law school at Saint Louis University and finally had some free time to read books we actually wanted to read,” Lubben says. The club has since evolved into a diverse group of readers and over the years, many of the once-single women have become wives and mothers. “I always liked book club, but as I had children, it’s become more meaningful to me,” Lubben says. “When you have kids, you need to talk to other moms about kids and family. Now we talk about the book, but the second half of our meetings is usually spent talking about family and work-life balance.” ABOUT THE BOOK Set in Germany during World War II, Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel Meminger and her foster parents, Hans and Rosa Hubermann. With the help of Hans, Liesel becomes an avid reader and picks up a habit of stealing books, which she shares with friends and the young Jewish man hiding in their basement. With a whimsical flourish, the author explores the power of both simple kindnesses and the written word.

connecting our community.

[ opinions ]

>>“One of the things most discussed about this book is the author’s choice of narration from Death’s

point of view. In a lesser writer’s hands, it could have turned into a gimmick. Here, it added an interesting perspective of the events unfolding, as well as a poignant reflection on the nature of human existence.” —EMMA DOLLEY

>>“What I liked most about the book was its perspective. We have all read many disturbing and

incredible stories, both fictional and nonfictional, about World War II from the perspective of Jews, soldiers and politicians, but I had never read a book that told a slice of the story from the perspective of ordinary people who did not really support what was going on but were stuck living in Nazi Germany.” —AMBER KEMPF

Maximizing wealth in the long run is best accomplished with a combination of basic strategies. First, people need to save more— easier said than done. Second, people need an investment philosophy. Without a basic framework for how to invest, people tend to repeat destructive behaviors over and over.

PNC BANK

The one thing people should focus on is saving, and saving at a young age. Maximize your tax-deferred plans and save after-tax as well. Invest with confidence, but manage your risk as your lifestyle changes. Never borrow from your 401k or IRAs. Ensure your retirement plan focuses on your short- and long-term horizon.

Moneta Group’s Sustainable Business Planning Committee has the following advice: it’s not what you earn, it’s what you keep. Never spend above your means and start a disciplined savings plan at an early age—then stick to it. Also, know your appetite for risk and have a diversified asset allocation consistent with your profile. Remember that delaying gratification today offers greater financial security and opportunity tomorrow.

than there is supply. Especially with baby boomers progressing to retirement, a lot of people will be looking for services, and there are simply not as many advisers there to provide it.” Both principals point out how important, and forwardthinking, Moneta Group has been in its attention to this issue. At Moneta, the client never has to worry about placing their financial security in a stranger’s hands, Pietroburgo says. Affording young advisers a high level of access also is good for the firm, she adds. “These young advisers are a lot more comfortable with technology and pushing the envelope of how we communicate with clients; they want to see us get in front of what the next generation of clients is going to expect,” she notes. And there is another practical benefit. A principal doesn’t always have the time or opportunity for a face-to-face. For example, when an established client passes down money to a child or grandchild, a member of the team, rather than the principal, might be a better fit for establishing that new Moneta relationship. “We still have oversight, so the young client benefits from our expertise,” explains Pietroburgo, “but the communication resides with the up-and-coming advisers.” “In the past week alone, I sent team members to three different places in the country,” Blair adds. “I simply wouldn’t have had the time to do that myself. It’s working with smaller pieces of the next generation, but those are critical building blocks for the future success of Moneta.” PHOTO: BILL BARRETT

instructor or insurance agent, you know how disorienting it can be to feel like you have to start all over with a new one. That disruption is exactly what Moneta Group’s Sustainable Business Plan is designed to avoid, explains Moneta Group principal Jim Blair. “People with a lot of tenure who have helped build the business are establishing the next generation of advisers in relationships with clients so that we meet those client needs seamlessly for the next 20 to 30 years,” he says. “This new generation is working at my hip. They have sat in hundreds of client meetings over the years, and they’ve seen us answer every question, gaining an incredible amount of insight.” That notion of seamless transfer is especially important in the financial services sector, where people have entrusted their resources and investments to someone over the course of decades, in many cases, says Blair. Few other relationships are as firmly rooted in trust. Blair says the firm is focused on cultivating a business model that provides continuity of top-notch care by mentoring young advisers to ascend to principal status. This is not the case everywhere, points out principal Linda Pietroburgo. “Two-thirds of firms do not have adequate succession planning,” she says, citing a 2011 article from FA Insight. “This is a real issue in our industry, because many advisers are in their 50s and older, and there is more demand

[ASSET$ & ANSWERS Q “ “ by tony di martino

HOW CAN I PROTECT MYSELF FROM, AND/OR TAKE ADVANTAGE OF, RISING INTEREST RATES?

If your portfolio is mostly comprised of stocks and bonds, rising interest rates will likely have more impact on your bonds than your stocks. Broadly speaking, bonds have two kinds of risks. The first, called credit risk, is associated with the credit-worthiness of the issuer. The second, term risk, is related to the term or duration of the bond. When interest rates change, the value of the bond is impacted: when they rise, bond prices fall— and vice versa. The duration magnifies those changes, so that shorter-term bonds change less and longer-term bonds change more when interest rates shift. If you’re worried about rising interest rates, the primary way to reduce risk is to shorten the duration of the portfolio. But that could hurt your return if you guess wrong. For example, rates could fall further, like they have overseas, or stay the same for many years. The starting place for a bond portfolio, in my opinion, is simply owning the entire bond market through an index fund or an exchange-traded fund that tracks the Barclays Aggregate index, much the way that people do with stocks. There are many low-cost choices. Once this core position is established, it may make sense to adjust the credit risk or term a bit, to make sure the portfolio meets your financial goals and is within your risk tolerance.

Interest rate volatility can be stressful, especially when you’re shopping for or thinking of building a home. To protect our clients in a risingrate environment, we utilize a few strategies to make sure they receive the best financing package for their particular situation. For example, long-term rate locks can guarantee a client’s rate for as little as 30 days or as long as a year. This is especially useful when you’re building a home and the project is scheduled to be completed in eight or nine months. Also useful for relieving anxiety over market fluctuation is a ‘lock and shop’ feature, which allows you to lock in a low interest rate while you begin or continue to shop for a home. We also offer clients a zero-cost refinance. This ensures they will never miss the bottom of any market. The interest rate at which they close their loan today might be the lowest it will ever get, but if the market provides an opportunity for a better rate in six months or six years, we’ll restructure their loan at no cost.

[YES! SHE SAID

by stephanie zeilenga

AFTER LIVING IN NEW YORK CITY for awhile and not seeing much outside her law office, John Burroughs alum Allison Laycob decided to give her online dating profile, set up by a friend with Allison’s disapproval, a real try. And when Jeff Matty walked into her life in May 2012, she found her future husband— and the fun side of the city. “Through Jeff I met a whole new world of people and places to go,” Allison says. “Before, I was kind of isolated and not enjoying everything New York has to offer, but he knew all the cool venues and music spots.” Two years later, Jeff proposed during a long weekend when friends were visiting. Although Allison knew for awhile it was coming, this was the last weekend she would have expected it, she says. Explaining that their friends had other plans, Jeff suggested they cook at home that night, and asked Allison if she would mind skipping her kickboxing class. Because on any other normal night he would be happy to eat without her, she went anyway. “I thought it was no big deal,” she says. “I open the door, all sweaty, and he’s on one knee, candles PHOTO: JOEL MARION PHOTOGRAPHY are lit, dinner’s ready, there’s flowers.” She was shocked. This winter, the couple will become husband and wife at Congregation B’nai Amoona, with a celebration following at Westwood Country Club. “My family has belonged to Westwood ever since I can remember,” Allison says. “No place is more beautiful in St. Louis.” The black-tie affair will be warm and cozy, Allison says, and feature live music from Memphis Soul Revue. “It will be awesome,” she says. “I’m excited to have everyone I love in the same room, everyone I’ve loved all together to support me and Jeff.” Jeff and Allison live in New York City. Jeff is a complex litigation attorney at Nelson Levine de Luca & Hamilton and Allison is a vice president on the strategic alliances team at Markit.

Happy Anniversary, Bethesda! (June 8, 1889–June 8, 2014)

Before the discovery of penicillin, Bethesda was serving the St. Louis community by providing care to those unable to care for themselves. The Bethesda of 1889 barely resembles today’s Bethesda—one of the leading and most reputable senior living, care and services organizations in St. Louis! In fact, today’s Bethesda is not for profit, non-denominational, and serves the needs of thousands of older adults and their families.

They have helped us evolve into an awardwinning organization that very likely has provided a home, or a home-based service, for someone you know! You may not need our services now. But when you do, all we ask is that you consider Bethesda. We’ll be here to help, just as we have for 125 years.

WEEKENDS ON THE WATER

Eleven miles from the hoopla of Branson, a tranquil retreat beckons from the banks of Table Rock Lake. The rolling hills of Ridgedale, Mo., by rebecca koenig have attracted nature lovers for nearly a century, and modern travelers flock to Big Cedar Lodge to beauty of the Ozarks is on full display at Big Cedar has its own yacht, Lady Liberty, which sets sail for sunset take in its spectacular views. Lodge, where families can spend hours hiking, canoeing, tours of the lake. Spa services include massage, nail and

BIG CEDAR LODGE

Accommodations offer a mountain-lodge aesthetic paired with luxury amenities. Many rooms have fireplaces and jetted tubs, while private log cabins have full kitchens and outdoor grills perfect for cooking the steaks, burgers and chicken that come in Big Cedar Lodge Backyard Baskets. The hotel’s famous cookie lady even visits some rooms with deliveries of ginger snaps. But no level of domestic comfort can distract guests from the real attraction: the great outdoors. The natural

kayaking and fishing. The beach club offers lake access, where guests can learn to jet ski and bowfish, and swimmers hoping to avoid encounters with critters can soak in hot tubs, heated pools and the lazy river. Evening bonfires provide tasty s’mores and views of the stars. The Lodge offers plenty of other experiences, indoors and out, on its sprawling campus. Two-dozen steeds and ponies in the Cedar Mountain Stables entertain guests with carriage rides, trail rides and wagon tours. The hotel

facial treatments. And opening in June, the Top of the Rock Ozarks Heritage Preserve will turn the lodge into a golfer’s paradise, with a course and facilities designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer. Non-golfing visitors will be able to ride an electric cart to the four-story Lost Canyon Cave and waterfall and tour the Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum’s collections of fossils, Native American art and Civil War artifacts.

EAT

PLAY

SHOP

Big Cedar Lodge has several restaurants specializing in hearty Ozarks fare and offering special Sunday brunches. The entertainmentthemed restaurants in Branson serve up a fun night out, and for a fabulous hamburger and milkshake, don’t miss Billy Bob’s Dairyland (1901 W. 76 Country Blvd.).

The bright lights of Branson are minutes away. Catch a comedy show or concert at one of the town’s many theaters and enjoy novelties like the wax museum and maze of mirrors. Nearby, Silver Dollar City offers roller coasters, shows and family-friendly rides. For a more natural experience, check out Dogwood Canyon Nature Park (2038 Missouri 86), where visitors purchase passes to hike, bike, horseback ride and fish, or explore Table Rock State Park (5272 Missouri 165).

Branson Landing offers outdoor waterfront shopping at anchors Bass Pro Shop and Belk, plus mall favorites. Hunt for deals on brand names at Tanger Factory Outlet Center (300 Tanger Blvd.), and browse specialty markets at The Shoppes at Branson Meadows (4740 Gretna Road).

CAMDEN ON THE LAKE by stephanie zeilenga

Imagine spending a hot summer night soaking in a pool, a tropical cocktail in hand from the swim-up bar, listening to Nelly perform live. Seekers of adult fun need look no further than Camden on the Lake Resort, Spa & Yacht Club at Lake of the Ozarks. Besides the pool, spa and boating facilities, the resort features a fitness center, a covered sand volleyball court and two retail shops.

Located next to Toad Cove Entertainment Complex, Camden on the Lake is one of the newest resorts in the area. Wednesday through Saturday from May through September, it’s the place to party. Regional DJs spin tunes during the day, and regional and national acts perform weekend nights at the Toad’s outdoor stage. “We are an adult playground, and while the lake in general is great for family entertainment, we don’t necessarily fit that mold,” general manager Dexter Whitney says. When a break from the festivities is needed, visitors can grab a bite to eat at Frog Waterfront Sports Bar & Grill, a seasonal restaurant servicing both the outdoor pool and boaters who come in off the lake, and H. Toad’s Bar & Grill, open year-round. “We have a diverse menu, and we’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” Whitney says. “We have people coming in off the lake throughout the day, whenever they get hungry.” A trip to the lake wouldn’t make sense without getting out on the water; Camden on the Lake offers boat rentals, parasailing, fishing excursions and a water taxi service. Boaters staying elsewhere on the lake who wish to dine in the resort’s restaurants can take advantage of the Toad Cove Yacht Club, which has slips for visitors. For daytime TLC, the resort’s Spa 54 at the Copper Door offers lakeside massages, pedicures and a full suite of spa services, an especially popular activity for bachelorette

weekends. “A lot of bachelorette parties will visit the spa during the day and then party it up at night,” director of sales Nicole Kever says. This summer, Nelly performed Memorial Day weekend, and Bret Michaels appears on the Fourth of July. Other scheduled big-name acts include Cheap Trick July 5 and Foreigner on Labor Day weekend.

EAT For lakefront fine dining, there’s The Duck (67 Cherokee Road). Additional options for a nice night out: Baxter’s Lakeside Grille (2124 Bagnell Dam Blvd.) and The Blue Heron (Blue Heron Hill Lane). For more casual fare, Wobbly Boots Road House (4147 Osage Beach Parkway) specializes in barbecue-centric food; J.J. Twig’s Pizza & Pub (1815 Bagnell Dam Blvd.) serves scrumptious pies. For kitschy lake fun, travel by boat to Coconut’s Caribbean Beach Bar & Grill (15208 Red Hollow Road) or Shady Gators (132 Sweet William Road). Don’t miss the drive-through at Andy’s Frozen Custard (4820 Osage Beach Parkway).

PLAY Sample wines at Casa de Loco Winery (442 Riverbird Lane). Visit historic Willmore Lodge (No. 1 Willmore Lane) to learn about the lake’s history and the area’s natural resources. About 40 minutes from Porto Cima and Camden on the Lake is Ha Ha Tonka State Park (1491 State Road D). Ooh and aah over breathtaking lake views and explore the stone ruins of a castle built in the early 1900s by Kansas City businessman Robert McClure. Take a guided tour of Bridal Cave (526 Bridal Cave Road).

SHOP Osage Premium Outlets (4540 Osage Beach Parkway) is the lake’s shopping hot spot and boasts 110 outlet stores.

PORTO CIMA by stephanie zeilenga

The course, designed by 18-time major champion Jack Nicklaus, was cited by Golf Digest as one of the best private courses in the country. “We are the only private club at the lake, and Jack was on the property and actually designed every aspect of the course,” director of membership Beth Irsik says. When they’re not playing golf, members engage in friendly competition on one of two outdoor tennis courts, lounge in the Mediterranean-inspired clubhouse, break a sweat in the fitness facilities and cool down in the lakeside pool. “We have a courtesy dock where you can enjoy the pool and tiki bar,” Irsik says. Members also have access to the club’s restaurant and private marina. Live bands, on-property carnivals, wine tastings, beer pairings, bunco and other member events ensure an active social scene. “Our pool parties are especially awesome,” Irsik says. “We have live entertainment and food and drink specials. The kids enjoy the pool, the parents enjoy the band, and it’s all right on the water.” The Lake of the Ozarks has always been a popular summer weekend destination for St. Louisans, and Porto Cima’s membership reflects this with a mix of full-time residents and out-of-town snowbirds. “We have a very eclectic membership,” Irsik says. “Some come for the weekend, some live here permanently. It’s basically at your discretion how much you want to utilize the club and amenities.” Social butterflies who want to get away from the city without forsaking an active social life can rest easy at Porto Cima. “It’s a tight-knit community,” Irsik says. “There’s always a golf game available and people in the restaurant. It’s really an atmosphere that makes it easy to be with people and make new friends.”

PHOTO: PORTO CIMA

On an immaculate green course, golfers line up their tees, the blue water sparkling nearby. The chance to play 18 holes alongside stunning lakeside views has attracted more than 700 members to The Club at Porto Cima at Lake of the Ozarks, but it’s more than a paradise for putters. Inspired by the Italian coastal village of Portofina, Porto Cima offers a waterfront country club atmosphere with a wide variety of activities and amenities.

COVER STORY

PRUDENTIAL] SELECT

by rebecca koenig FEW COMPANY NAMES GARNER AS MUCH RESPECT as Berkshire

Hathaway. When Warren Buffett’s corporation endorses your brand, it’s more than a compliment: it’s a signal of faith from a business tycoon with an impressive track record. That’s why Maryann Vitale Alles, president and CEO of Prudential Select Properties, is excited to announce that the firm is joining Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, a new real estate brokerage network. “When the Berkshire Hathaway name appears on a yard sign, it’s a sign that buyers and sellers want to see,” Vitale says. Founded in 2002 by Vitale, Deb Colburn and Angie Ignatowski, Prudential Select Properties has more than 500 agents in the St. Louis area. When the name change occurs the weekend of June 14, to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties, associates will hold listing open houses, and all for-sale signs will change to reflect the ‘cabernet and cream’ colors of Berkshire Hathaway. On June 17, each of the 11 St. Louis offices will celebrate the new affiliation with a ribbon cutting and open house. Earl Lee, CEO for HSF Affiliates, will attend to mark the occasion. “This is not simply a name change for us, but really an opportunity to bring a new level of quality and innovation to our future at Prudential Select Properties,” Colburn says. “This name will open many doors for us.” Buyers and sellers working with the company can expect to benefit from innovative tools and fresh marketing techniques. The company’s new website—optimized for tablet viewing—will offer real estate resources through the Global Network Platform. Luxury Collection will provide maximum exposure to qualified prospective buyers through a sophisticated, integrated marketing program that highlights the unique

qualities of your property. And the network’s training and education department will offer agents a new training curriculum. This is the first time Warren Buffett has allowed use of his corporation’s name in this kind of real estate venture. “In the 32 years that I have been in real estate, I haven’t experienced a brand opportunity of this magnitude,” Vitale says. “It is a game-changer for residential real estate.” The new brokerage network has more than 30,000 agents and 750 offices in 37 states, and was named brand of the year in the Harris Poll EquiTrend study. Ignatowski believes this partnership is a perfect fit for Prudential Select Properties. “This is the most trusted name; it stands for integrity, stability and success,” she says. “I can’t think of a better name to partner with than Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.” She also believes it will serve the interests of St. Louisans, and Buffett himself seems to agree. As he says on the network’s website: “When people are making the decision of the magnitude of buying a house, it’s the biggest decision a great many families will ever make. They want to know who they’re working with and we think that the Berkshire Hathaway name will be reassuring to many of those people.”

story and photos by rebecca koenig

It’s tropical and mysterious, the most isolated chain of islands on Earth. Fifty-five years after earning statehood, Hawaii bewitches us still. Perhaps it’s the blend of Polynesian, Japanese and American cultures. Or the dramatic terrain of mountains and sea on eight islands born in volcanic fire. A winter escape to the western coasts of Oahu and Maui offers clues about Hawaii’s allure. The trip starts on the island of Oahu, The Gathering Place, where famous beaches and cultural sites draw international travelers. Most head south to Waikiki, the hotel hub. But out west in Ko Olina, in Oahu’s leeward microclimate, majestic resorts curl around lagoons protected from the showers that soak the island’s east coast November through March. Here, nature is gentle. Indifferent to our company, a pregnant Hawaiian monk seal sleeps in the sand. A snorkeling session rewards with visions of angelfish, butterfly fish and yellow tang darting among the rocks. Purple sea urchins flare and retract their spines. Turning around, I’m startled by a honu, a Hawaiian green sea turtle, who stares for a moment before swimming toward the

bottom and out of sight. A half-hour drive east takes us to Honolulu. Amid the island’s lush scenery, the city’s high-rises seem out of place — but this is America, after all. Atop a pedestal, the majestic King Kamehameha looks out at Iolani Palace, where the last two Hawaiian royals lived from 1882 to 1893. Medals from foreign countries hang in the throne room, testaments to the interest world powers traditionally have shown in this land of sugarcane and coffee—interest that often clashed with natives’ own. As a poignant audio tour explains, in 1893, American businessmen and sugar planters hoping to expand their political and economic power deposed Queen Lili‘uokalani and imprisoned her in her own palace. Five years later, the U.S. annexed the kingdom.

Japan’s influence is evident everywhere in adjacent Waikiki, from the designer brands sold in the Royal Hawaiian Center to the sushi restaurants on every corner. Its prevalence is startling in the context of the nearby World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. The museum, which commemorates the bombing at Pearl Harbor and chronicles the warfare America and Japan waged in the Pacific, offers a balanced analysis of both nations’ perspectives. To escape city congestion, we head to the North Shore and Waimea Bay, where driving directions sound like lyrics from a Beach Boys song. Thirty-foot waves pummel the coast in the winter, making it a surfing mecca. It’s worth spending half an hour watching surfers shred the ‘heavies,’ as they call the monster waves.

An island-hopper flight to Maui is barely long enough for a nap, and with the view it affords of Diamond Head, the iconic volcanic cone that towers over Waikiki, I can’t bear to close my eyes. Compared to well-developed Oahu, Maui feels wild, so we embrace adventure by forging slowly up the Kahekili Highway, a dizzying cliff road overlooking turquoise water. A roaring stream pours from the mountains into a rainforest glen in Iao Valley State Park, rewarding hikers with lovely views. At McGregor Point, a dolphin- and whale-watching vista, the sun reflects brilliantly off royal blue waves. A pleasant languor pervades Wailea. There, on Maui’s southwest side, resorts with opulent gardens and pools sprawl toward the beach. With fluttering tents arranged on

Native plants line the 1.5-mile coastal trail connecting the hotels, from which I spot humpback whales swimming off shore. Golfers and beach bums might be content savoring the dry heat on the coast, but it would be a mistake to forgo a trip to Haleakala, House of the Sun, the shield volcano that dominates the island. The road to Haleakala passes sugarcane fields and winds up switchbacks to an elevation of


STAY

[ the essentials ] OAHU:

The JW MARRIOTT IHILANI RESORT in Ko Olina shares a lagoon with AULANI, a Disney resort and spa. Kids will adore the latter, which has a water park and whimsical Hawaiian décor. The Marriott is subtler but no less grand, with especially luxurious bathrooms and a tiki torchlighting ceremony every evening as the sun sets.

MAUI:

PLAY

THE GRAND WAILEA WALDORF ASTORIA is simply stunning. Its palatial lobby has water features surrounding the BOTERO BAR, a social hot spot flanked by its namesake artist’s sculptures. The oceanfront water park has slides, pools and a unique water elevator ride. And the views, especially at sunset, are resplendent.

OAHU:

The whole state may feel like a playground, but take time to appreciate Oahu’s historical sites. Drive to the PALI LOOKOUT, site of the 1795 battle that led to the unification of the Hawaiian islands. Explore the IOLANI PALACE, which witnessed the final days of the Hawaiian monarchy. Spend a somber morning at PEARL HARBOR, taking the ferry to the WWII VALOR IN THE PACIFIC NATIONAL MONUMENT.

MAUI:

Water sports of all sorts should be on your agenda on Maui, as well as hiking, golfing and general beach lounging. During the winter, whale watching cruises take tourists close to the giant mammals, but with some luck you can spot them on your own. Bring a sweatshirt for the drive up HALEAKALA, and check the weather before you go; if it’s too cloudy at the top, you may miss the view.

EAT

OAHU:

THE MAKAHIKI restaurant at Aulani serves a delicious adult- and kid-friendly buffet of seafood and Hawaiian and Asian cuisine. BOGART’S CAFE in Waikiki has tasty breakfast options; try the Hawaiian waffle with haupia, a coconut milk custard. On the North Shore, get the kalua pork at KONO’S.

MAUI:

Don’t miss the feast at OLD LAHAINA LUAU, a buffet dinner theater whose pièce de résistance is kalua pork smoked underground while you sip island cocktails. American favorites with an island twist are served at MONKEYPOD KITCHEN, a trendy gastropub.

SHOP

OAHU:

Since 1963, HILO HATTIE has purveyed fun Hawaiian nostalgia. The flagship store outside Honolulu sells Hawaiian shirts (and dresses and skirts and sarongs) of every possible pattern, plus island foods. The outdoor ROYAL HAWAIIAN CENTER behind Waikiki Beach has trendy Japanese stores, European designer brands and typical mall favorites.

MAUI:

THE SHOPS AT WAILEA offers upscale shopping in a manicured outdoor plaza. You’ll find Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Tiffany & Co. there. The old whaling town of LAHAINA has several tasteful souvenir stores and a craft market under one of the largest and oldest banyan trees in the country. You can even buy and mail yourself a coconut.

10,023 feet. At the top, endangered silversword plants dot the ground like spiky anemones. I shiver in my shorts as smooth sheets of clouds roll away to unveil a barren Martian landscape. Volcano peaks on Hawaii, the Big Island, are visible across the sea. Dinner at the Old Lahaina Luau is a fitting way to bid aloha to Hawaii. With a mai tai in my hand and a lei around my neck, I wander the grounds, where musicians strum ukeleles, artisans sell koa wood crafts and young men prepare poi, a runny purple poultice made from taro. As the sun sets, we cluster around the imu, the underground oven, where two strapping servers dig away dirt to reveal the star of the evening: a pig, wrapped in leaves and curls of aromatic smoke. Half an hour later, we feast on succulent kalua pork. Salads with sweet Maui onions, salmon, raw tuna, fern

shoots and octopus share space at the buffet with steak, banana bread and fat slices of purple Hawaiian sweet potato. Dancers take the stage to tell Hawaii’s history through hula, each performance representing part of the archipelago’s past. Accompanied by the pahu, or drum, women and men wearing feathers and grasses portray ancient myths about Pele the Fire Goddess. Another dance commemorates the late 19th century, when King Kalakaua restored hula after missionaries banned it. A third performance draws on the idealized fun of Hollywood Hawaii, when Elvis films and tiki drinks thrilled mainlanders in the 1960s. The dancers end the evening with a traditional piece, underscoring their pride in their Polynesian roots. With sated bellies and sparked imaginations, we leave knowing some of Hawaii’s enchanting secrets.

THIS LATEST VENTURE from Michael del Pietro is not Italian like his other spots (Sugo, Babbo, Tavolo, etc.). It’s decidedly American cuisine, with an emphasis on ‘down-home cooking’ like pork chops, barbecue and fried chicken. The del Pietro formula, however, is evident in the large open dining room, well-controlled limited menu and overall reasonable prices. A starter of sprouts ($7) was unexpected, since Brussels sprouts typically are offered as a side dish. But these roasted and quartered veggies were dotted with red pepper flakes, caramelized onions and crisped pieces of house-cured bacon. The barely softened sprouts had a distinctly barbecued esthetic, a blend of sweet, spicy, smoky and crisp. A soup of the day ($5), shrimp bisque, was more Southern in feel, a smooth puree reminiscent of she-crab soup that tasted like seafood and evaporated milk. Don’t miss the Mussels ($10), a large bowlful of the

bivalves with a unique smoky flavor. Enhanced by leeks and tomatoes and served in a chardonnay broth, the mussels had been roasted with a sprinkling of smoked paprika, and that process imparted the most wonderful flavor. The Beef Brisket Chili ($6) was similarly delicious, with chunks of fall-apart meat in a sweet, red chili. You can’t go wrong with the BBQ Ribs ($14 or $26), if they’re as good as the ones served when we visited. These were every rib-lover’s ideal: well-trimmed and meaty, crusty on the outside, with a thin layer of sticky sauce and a thick layer of dry rub. They were tender, crisp, delicious and accompanied by baked beans and slaw. The sides themselves were a treat, too. The slaw, of the vinegar variety, had plenty of celery seed, a spice that gives coleslaw its distinctive flavor. The beans were well-softened and thickly sweet, tasting of molasses and possibly some kind of cola.

The pièce de résistance, however, is the Shrimp & Grits ($24), a plateful of grainy and slightly cheesy Anson Mills grits topped with several jumbo shrimp. It all sat in a scrumptious, buttery hot sauce reminiscent of what you’d find with hot wings. Also very good was the Half Chicken ($16), moist and tender and deliciously smoky, accompanied by sautéed greens with pieces of bacon and onion. An entrée of Red Fish ($24) had good presentation, with two nicely browned fillets atop a bowlful of sweet corn kernels and crisped bacon, artistically crowned with fried leeks. The elements were good, but could have used stronger flavors. Desserts are home-style: cobbler, bread pudding, root beer float and the berry cobbler with salted caramel ice-cream (Serendipity) that we ordered. It was more syrupy than fruity, with just the lightest graham cracker crumble on top.

chefs. I was expecting a lame restaurant story, a la Anthony Bourdain, about life in the seamy back room of restaurant kitchens. Instead, this is a touching ode to the kind of chef for whom cooking is a calling. Favreau plays Carl Casper, a chef who finds beauty in an orange and ecstasy in a Cubano sandwich. Once an innovative rising star, he has sold out to boss Dustin Hoffman, who is much more interested in filling his restaurant than allowing Carl to create the next big thing. The movie is delightful and invigorating as Carl, his faithful protégé Martin (John Leguizamo) and his 10-year-old son embark on a road trip in their new food truck, El Jefe. They rediscover the joys of creating something meaningful and sharing it with all who appreciate it. The relationship drama between Carl and his son was a little maudlin, but a small price to pay for all the joy this film exudes. SHOULD YOU SEE IT? A resounding Yes! —D.W.

[AGING GRACEFULLY by rick stoff

Caring for your mental and physical health will help you enjoy your retirement years. Read advice from local experts about keeping your spirits high and your feet and teeth in good shape.

living with loss “LOSS IS A PART OF EVERYDAY LIFE. AS WE GET OLDER, TIME AMPLIFIES THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR THAT TO HAPPEN,” SAYS RACHEL HASPER, M.A., LPC, OF RACHEL HASPER THERAPY IN WEBSTER GROVES. “When we reach middle to late adulthood the losses start to build,” agrees Priscilla Bass-Timmerberg, Ph.D., LPC, of Life Transitions Counseling in Webster Groves. “We lose parents, maybe a sibling, then maybe contemporaries. Those connections are important to us.” Loss will be experienced not only from death; we may personally face limitations in mobility or health, Hasper adds. Many of us eventually will be forced to move from our homes, maybe to distant cities, cutting ties to friends, hobbies and favorite places. And, notes Bass-Timmerberg, we also will be saddened by the health issues of friends and relatives. “You are going to know a wide range of people who are very healthy to very ill,” she says. “In your group somebody is going to have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.” How do we make the best of these years of loss? “The conversation has to be about how we learn to carry grief and how we mourn in a healthy way,” Hasper advises. “Death is almost a taboo topic. We need to feel safe enough to talk about it.” “Teenagers think death is a random thing, but we know as we age that death will touch us,” adds Bass-Timmerberg. “We can prepare by talking to our families. I am talking to my kids about how I want the end stage of my life to be.” Both counselors stress the power of relationships and activities as sources of energy during dark times. “Over time you really begin to cherish the relationships you have left,” says Bass-Timmerberg. “It will come down to the point where you are all adults who no longer have parents. The people who make the easiest transitions have close relationships as well as some religious or spiritual belief in which they find comfort.” “Take care of yourself,” Hasper emphasizes. “Stay active, exercise, keep yourself engaged with people who remain. Have a sense of purpose. Wake up in the morning and have a reason to be there. Being productive helps you have a good outlook on life and keeps your mind sharp. Finding ways to carry on traditions also is helpful and comforting.” People who are grieving should not hesitate to reach out to close friends and relatives. “Asking for help is a difficult thing,” Hasper says. “Many don’t want others to be bothered by their sadness. But reaching out is a gift to people on the outside—people who care about you want to help but might not know what to do.” Grief is a normal and necessary part of life, Hasper points out. “Sharing old stories with friends is a way to keep memories alive. We can become comfortable enough to enjoy those rememberings after we have gone through the sadness,” she says. Confronting death in a healthy way also can clear a path toward our own passing, adds Bass-Timmerberg. “In the last stage of life, you can focus on making sure you have done what you wanted to do and handled the things you can make peace with.”


comfort first:::::::::::::: You know that famous quote about death and taxes? Well, it should be revised to read, THREE things are inevitable in life: DEATH, TAXES AND SORE FEET.

A lifetime of pounding the pavement, along with the aging of tissues, leads to a number of irritating possibilities; the National Institute on Aging’s website lists no fewer than 10 significant foot problems that could become part of your life once you pass middle age. “As everybody gets older, the structure of the foot starts to break down,” says Dr. Richard Lehman, founder and medical director of the U.S. Center for Sports Medicine in Kirkwood. “Your arch starts to collapse, so your foot becomes a little flatter. That starts to overload the tendons and muscles that support the inside of your foot.” The foot becomes longer and wider, requiring evolving sizes of shoes. This degeneration also can cause arthritis—inflammation of the skeletal joints—and most significant, bunions, those swollen and tender joints at the base of the big toes.

An additional pain source can be hammertoes caused by shortening of tendons that control toe movements. This pulls toes backward, making joints larger and stiffer to the point where they can rub painfully against shoes. “As you lose your arch and get some bunions and a little arthritis, you can have pain, stiffness and swelling, usually on the ball of the foot,” Lehman says. His recommendations for dealing with foot pain do not include less exercise. “You want to remain as active as you can be,” he points out. He does, however, advise stretching exercises for the Achilles tendons and middle of the foot prior to exercise. The first line of treatment for old feet is supportive shoes and an orthotic arch support, Lehman says. “I put all my patients in an orthotic. You don’t need to spend a lot of money—just go to the pharmacy and get one made by Dr. Scholl’s.” The prototypical supportive shoe will have support for the

arch and heel, a deep toe box and a bit of sideways give, he notes. Shoes should have enough arch support to make you feel taller when you put them on, he adds. “That support also stabilizes your knees and back.”

Major brands of sports shoes differ in approaches to the toe box. “Some have really good toe boxes and others are kind of narrow. A wider shoe may not look as good but it will be more comfortable,” Lehman says. Whatever style you buy, he suggests, “the more laces the better. For loafers, they say one size fits all, which means one size doesn’t fit anybody.” If your feet are sore after a long day of activity, he suggests icing them for five to 20 minutes. People with severe foot pain after activity should ask their primary care physician about a prescription for a topical anti-inflammatory, he says. “If you know you are going to be walking or gardening for two or three hours, you want to use the anti-inflammatory an hour before you go out.” Topical anti-inflammatory medications are becoming the standard of care, he adds. “We’ve gotten away from the oral medications due to their side effects.” If you really care about your feet, they should be pampered even around the house. “You should never go barefoot in your home,” Lehman says. “It doesn’t seem like much, but after an hour on a tile floor you could easily feel pain in the heel or bottom of the foot.” In medical terminology, that means plantar fasciitis, the straining of the ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes.

AT A GLANCE Keeping anything running smoothly once it’s a ‘classic’ can be summed up in two words: PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE. That includes ourselves. If we started long ago, we’re more likely to be in good shape as we roll through our senior years. But it’s never too late to get that tune-up. Keep up with regular • dental maintenance, like

checkups, brushing and flossing. Repair anything that needs it immediately. Avoid tobacco, • sweets, caffeine and

alcohol. But if you indulge, and can’t brush, wash out your mouth with water immediately afterward. Drink plenty of water to • keep the mouth hydrated. Wear orthotics to • support the arches; even inexpensive ones are better than going without. Wear supportive shoes • with good arch and heel support, as well as roomy toe boxes.

Briefly ice your feet • if they are sore after activity. If you tend to suffer from foot pain, use a prescription topical anti-inflammatory before activity. Consider death and • grief to be normal parts of life, and turn to loved ones for support.

Talk to family members • and friends about end-of-life plans and feelings.

Keep active and • productive to make

your days enjoyable and meaningful.

HEALTH&BEAUTY

A HEALTHY SMILE IS IMPORTANT AT ANY AGE. Even if we’ve managed to get to retirement with a full set of pearly whites, oral health care is far from over. “Teeth are the subject matter of a grand masterpiece—your smile—that should radiate beauty throughout life,” says Dr. Peter J. Pagano of Artistic Dentistry in Creve Coeur. The teeth, gums and lips, he says, “have to be maintained to create facial beauty and a non-aged look on the face.” The challenges of oral care can increase with age, adds Dr. Stuart D. Waite, whose practice, Dr. Waite and Associates, is based at Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur. “Our mouths are always more susceptible to disease due to the bacteria that live there,” he points out. “Due to the aging process, medications and diet changes, sometimes our mouth can become dry, and as you suffer from dry mouth, you are more susceptible to a host of problems ranging from gum disease to tooth decay.” Consistent, daily oral hygiene is a must, Waite says. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that seniors brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, floss once a day and regularly visit the dentist for checkups and cleanings. More attention also should be paid to the consumption of alcoholic or caffeinated beverages and sweets, he says. “The liquids we sometimes prefer to drink because they taste better than water can desiccate, or dry, the oral membranes of the mouth. Then the bacteria have the advantage.” Instead of always having a sweet dessert, consider tempering that with some fresh fruit, Waite suggests. “The cup of coffee that gets us started in the morning or the glass of red wine at dinner don’t have to be avoided, we just have to know they have an impact. Having a glass of water after them to rinse the mouth is a minimum fix for rehydrating the tissues and cleaning the teeth.” The ADA includes tobacco products in its list of what to keep out of the mouth—these

CONSISTENT, DAILY ORAL

HYGIENE IS A MUST

can cause oral cancer, tooth discoloration, gum disease or tooth loss. “The ingredients in tobacco create a constriction of blood vessels, which prevents tissues from being fully oxygenated,” Pagano explains. “Toxins build up in these tissues because they aren’t carried off properly. That leads to generally unhealthy tissues that can become dried out, inflamed and discolored. The idea is to retard the effect of time on the body, but smoking accelerates the aging process.” Gum disease and tooth decay take the sparkle right out of your smile. “If the gums are pink, tight and healthy, that looks great,” Pagano says. “If the gums are red, puffy and receded, they can create black triangles between the teeth. Receded gums make the teeth look longer and we can see the exposed roots.” It’s unusual to reach retirement age without a bridge, implant or dentures in your mouth to replace destroyed or lost teeth. For replacing individual teeth, bridges can be less expensive but implants are likely to be more lasting, Pagano says. “Because a bridge is difficult to floss, there can be decay. A high percentage of bridges fail by the 10-year mark,” he says, “while implants are 98 percent successful and look the most like your natural teeth.” Decades of dental wear may create another sign of aging, Pagano adds. “The distance between the chin and nose shortens as we get older, due to tooth wear or the loss of teeth. As the chewing tables wear, the teeth become shorter. We can rebuild the biting surfaces of the teeth to counter that.” Oral health should never be overlooked—no matter your age. It takes lifelong discipline, but we’re rewarded with a mouthful of teeth that will serve us well—and a smile that can keep us looking younger and feeling happier.

THE STEPS OMBRE LIPS by marylyn simpson THE OMBRE LOOK—GRADATIONS OF COLOR—has dominated hair trends on and off the catwalk. Thanks to its latest incarnation, ombre has moved beyond hair. From Dior to Prabal Gurung, ombre lips will have you rediscovering your lip pencils and redefining the way you wear lipstick. Here are four simple steps to achieving a beautiful, pink-toned ombre lip.

STEP 1: PREP YOUR LIPS

Just like you clean and moisturize your face before applying makeup, make sure your lips are primed and prepped for lip color. Start by exfoliating with ingredients you can find at home. I prefer the baking soda route, which requires nothing more than water and baking soda mixed together in your palm. Apply with a straight, soft-bristle toothbrush and rub the paste on your lips in a circular motion. Rinse lips with a damp, warm hand towel and moisturize with clear lip balm.

STEP 2: LINING THE LIPS

Now that the lips are properly exfoliated and hydrated, apply the first layer of color. Use a darker-hued lip pencil to create definition more easily. Line your lips with MAC’s Hip ‘n’ Happy lip pencil, going inward toward the center of the lips. Don’t worry about getting a perfectly straight line all around; you’ll be blending this with your next lip color.

STEP 3: OMBRE ILLUSION

Using a lighter shade of lipstick, take Obsessive Compulsive’s Precision Lip Brush and apply the color to the center of your lips. I prefer MAC’s Snob lipstick, a gorgeous complementary color to the Hip ‘n’ Happy. Once you’ve applied Snob, it’s time to lightly blend both colors where they meet to create a more natural appearance. This achieves the ombre effect and creates an illusion of fullness and dimension.

STEP 4: TAKE-HOME TIPS

Remember to use contrasting shades from the same color family. This will showcase color without leaving lips looking like they belong in a color wheel. To achieve an ombre lip during the day, stick with a lip pencil just a shade darker than your natural lip tone and a lipstick that is close to your natural lip color. For a more dramatic, nighttime look, change up your look with bolder, brighter shades. Depending on the lighting, your lips will pop with an extra punch of color.

PROFESSIONAL HAIR

Whether you’re a recent graduate or well on your way up the corporate ladder, choosing the best hairstyle for the workplace requires a delicate balance between personal style and professionalism. Many women fresh out of college might feel pressure to shorten long locks, but today’s workplace environment isn’t always as stringent as it once was. Instead of feeling pressured to look more mature, remember that your hairstyle should always be a reflection of you as an individual, not just what you do. “As far as styles for young women in their 20s and 30s go, a lot of decision-making comes from hair type, face shape and how much time they have to work on their hair in the mornings,” says Priscilla Brinkman, a stylist and makeup artist at Christopher’s Hair Salon in Clayton. “I’m a 32-year-old hairdresser and a mother of a 5-year-old, so easy and trendy work for me,” she adds. “But I see a wide variety of looks, from short pixie to a classy bob to long layers. It depends on the person, their personality and what they can pull off.” Work with your hairstylist to create a look that you feel comfortable with but that is still professional, whether that means short, beachy waves or a long and straight style. Jordan Fox, hairstylist and makeup artist at Blown Away Blow Dry Bar, recommends that whatever style you choose, keep it clean and well-groomed. It should go without saying that some looks are counterproductive, when it comes to the office—or pretty much any workplace. For example, don’t over-tease or get too aggressive with hairspray, no matter your age or position. Maintaining a look that is equal parts clean and comfortable, as well as put-together, are the key elements for a successful style. If your current hairstyle is in need of a lift or you’re in the midst of a workplace shift, Fox recommends YouTube as a wonderful source for finding simple, at-home hair techniques you can use on a daily basis. From the sock bun trend to mastering the use of hot tools, a quick YouTube search is a great resourch for easy touch-ups if you can’t get to the salon as often as you’d like. Then there’s the flip side of that: Sometimes we need a better work-life balance, which is what has given rise to blow-dry bars like Blown Away. Some women need to that time once spent in front of the mirror by taking advantage of regular no-fuss salon visits. A 30-minute appointment will have you in and out the door with perfect hair. “Our 7 , 8 and 9 a.m. slots are always booked by working women,” says Fox. “We have a lot of women who come in before they have to give big presentations. And many regulars who don’t want to deal with their hair before work come into the salon early in the week, and they’re good to go for the rest of the work week.”

Wedding Cosmetic Tips A significant amount of planning goes into preparing for your wedding day. For many, the to-do list becomes quite overwhelming. An increasing number of wedding couples are turning to cosmetic surgery to get ready for the big day. There is even a special term for these surgical pre-wedding routines. It’s called a Bridal Makeover or Bridalplasty. There are a number of different procedures that brides and grooms can consider before the big day:

Injectables and FIllers – Botox to soften frown lines. Orbital and Perioral creases, as well as frown lines, are easily treated one month before the wedding day. Fillers can be used for contour irregularities or deeper crease lines such as the nasolabial area. It also can be used along the border of the lip to give pertness or a kiss-the-lips look. Fillers also can be used to accentuate the brows and cheeks and reduce or illuminate the dark circles beneath the eye or tear trough. It is good to do this a little in advance so that touch-ups may be performed and any slight bruising may disappear. FacIal PlastIc surgery – Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can make eyes look more open, alert and fresh. Nasal contorting procedures can soften the face and make one’s features more proportional. These procedures take more recovery time and should be performed several months prior to the expected date.

body contourIng and lIPosuctIon – Diet and exercising during these pressure-packed months before the big day cannot always give us the look we want. Body contouring is a great alternative. Common surgical procedures include liposuction, mini or full tummy tucks and liposuction for the arms, thighs and flanks are common requests.

breast enhancement – Another popular pre-wedding procedure among brides is breast augmentation. A breast-lift or implants may help with that difficult-to-fit wedding gown. This procedure should be performed at least one month to six weeks prior to the big day. These cosmetic options are available so that people can treat themselves to the makeover they want.

HOUSE & GARDEN] [ SPECIAL SECTION

by rebecca koenig | photos by suzy gorman

Former IndyCar driver Robby McGehee’s Forest Ridge home is on the National Register of Historic Places—but that hasn’t stopped his triplets from occasionally scrawling on the walls. McGehee shares why he loves his traditional Clayton estate—which he’s owned for two years—and how his family infuses youth into the 88-year-old property.


T&S | What attracted you to this house? RM| Its age and beauty. After looking at new houses, we realized you can’t really recreate a lot of what’s here: this house was built in 1926. T&S | What look did you and your interior designers hope to achieve? RM| Our goal was to take the traditional house and accent it with modern and contemporary [pieces] and a younger feel. We wanted to make it traditional, but not old, by putting in contemporary furnishings and decorations. T&S | The home sits on 2.7 acres. Were you looking for a large yard? RM| The real estate aspect was as important as the house to me. Considering the urban aspect of Clayton, having 3 acres on an estate kind of home is unique. We have three 5-year-old kids who can use it all. Real estate was pretty depressed when we got it, so getting that much land was a great investment, even though we’ll probably never leave. There’s a little fountain in back and a lot of perennials and hedges. We have a pond, and when we bought the house, I thought, This is going to be another expense to deal with. But we’ve fixed it up and put some fish in it. I can sit in my office and watch ducks come, and every once in a while, a great blue heron. This page, clockwise from top: Robby and Norma McGehee with their triplets (clockwise from top): Robby Jr., Cameron and Harry; living room; backyard pond; masonry; historic marker Opposite: Black and white bathroom; foyer; living room


T&S | What’s your favorite feature? RM| I love the stature of it: the fact that we have a big, square, full-masonry home. When a tornado comes, we just sit there and don’t worry. There’s 18 inches of concrete between each floor. To me that’s just very cool. It’s been here for almost 100 years and will probably still be standing in 200 years. Our favorite room is on the third floor. It was a ballroom at one point, and we’ve turned that into a kids’ room with video games and arcade machines. When we bought this house, there was a nasty mildewed rug on the third floor, with wood underneath that was probably installed in 1926. We called a floor person, they sanded it down and said it’s red maple, a tree you don’t see in flooring anymore. That room is a cool, homey place—basically our family room, since we don’t have the great room you have in new homes. T&S | What’s it like to raise your young triplets in the home? RM| It’s a challenge, but they’ve gotten past the point where they draw on things. You work so hard to make it nice, and they work so hard to do the opposite. T&S | Tell me about those racing helmets. RM| In my prior life, from 1999 to 2004, I raced Indy cars. That was back when I was young and fearless. They typically sit in my office, or what my family calls my ‘I love me room’: It has all my racing memorabilia

and trophies. I got kind of relegated to that room because my wife and the interior designers weren’t super-excited about that kind of stuff. T&S | Did it take a lot of work to get the house looking as nice as it does now? RM| In the last two months we’ve done a lot. We redid the entryway and the powder room. We recently decorated the rear entry foyer, which we call the club room, as well as the formal living room and formal dining room. It’s a work in progress and it probably always will be a work in progress.

We’ve got plans that probably won’t happen for five or 10 years. We’re both very excited about it, to think about what’s next. With something that old, there’s always going to be something we can improve. T&S | What are your favorite memories of living in the house so far? RM| Everything related to raising our children here. They’re growing up here, as have multiple generations before them. I just love driving up every day and seeing the kids’ toys in the driveway.

Many things start small. For Peacock Alley founder Mary Ella Gabler, who had quit her Wall Street gig and moved to Dallas with her husband, her small start was a handmade boudoir pillow. It caught the eye of a Neiman Marcus executive at a party in 1971. He placed a large order and luxury linen brand Peacock Alley was born. T&S caught up with Gabler when she visited Sallie Home recently to promote her memoir, Uncommon Thread. T&S: WHAT WAS THAT FIRST BOUDOIR PILLOW LIKE?

Mary Ella Gabler: It was a sweet little pillow with eyelet ruffles and patchwork in small prints and gingham—all things that were popular at the time. It was modeled off a pillow that my friend Gayle spotted in a New York boutique. At the time, we all had our own sewing machines, so we just made our own at home. We started Peacock Alley together. T&S: WHAT’S BEEN THE MOST SATISFYING PART ABOUT RUNNING PEACOCK ALLEY?

MEG: Product development is my passion. We’re not textile designers, but we’re good editors, and it’s all about finding a style that fits in with Peacock Alley’s look. We utilize our relationship with the stores and do a lot of homework on the needs of the consumer—it’s really a collaborative effort. T&S: DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO RUN A BUSINESS, OR WAS THAT SOMETHING THAT EVOLVED FROM THAT FIRST ORDER?

MEG: It evolved. I had lived in New York and worked on Wall Street, and that was an exciting world for me in the ’60s. But after having my children, it didn’t appeal to me anymore. I grew up in an entrepreneurial family and wanted to do something on my own.

T&S: WHAT SETS PEACOCK ALLEY APART FROM ITS COMPETITORS?

MEG: We established ourselves early on with a look that was mostly white and neutrals, and that’s our strong suit today—white sheets, neutral bedding, and pops of color with accents and pillows. T&S: TELL TO ME ABOUT YOUR BOOK. I UNDERSTAND YOU DIDN’T INITIALLY SET OUT TO WRITE A MEMOIR.

MEG: The original concept was a beautiful coffee table book, but the more I got involved in it, the more I thought I should tell my story and the journey of Peacock Alley over the last 40 years. I’m glad I did that, because I think it’s inspired women, especially those wanting to start their own businesses. T&S: YOU ONCE PREDICTED THAT THE BEDROOM WOULD BECOME A MULTIPURPOSE SPACE FOR WORKING, RELAXING AND SLEEPING. IS THAT STILL TRUE?

MEG: When I said that, many were dealing with smaller spaces, so to have a multifunctional bedroom seemed like an important trend, especially in the ’90s. But now we’re so wired in to everything that the bedroom needs to be more of a restful space. People today want cleaner, less complicated surroundings.

NEIGHBORHOOD GEMS FAUST PARK HUMS WITH ACTIVITY on warm spring Saturdays. Children tumble on the playground and spill out of the carousel. Families marvel at the monarchs in the Butterfly House. But in the corner of the park, an entire town sits largely unnoticed, quiet and faded like a memory. It’s the Historic Village, a motley assemblage of homes and outbuildings collected from across St. Louis County. By exploring the gardens of this composite neighborhood or surveying it from a front porch made of hand-hewn boards, visitors can envision what life was like before modern subdivisions replaced farms and forests. Faust Park was created in 1968, when Leicester B. and Mary Faust donated nearly 100 acres of land once owned by Missouri’s second governor, Frederick Bates. Bates built the Thornhill estate on the property between 1817 and 1819. His home and outbuildings, placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, were restored during the 1980s. The Historic Village complements the Thornhill estate. The project itself was founded in 1986, but its homes are much older. “We were offered the Mertz cabin that was sitting on the property of Maryville University,” says James Foley, the cultural site manager for Faust Park. “We decided to start a village to preserve historic buildings from St. Louis County.” To be eligible for inclusion in the village, donated buildings must date to before 1910 and represent different

architectural styles. They often come from property owners who are selling land to developers but who want to ensure historic structures are preserved. Some buildings are transported intact. Others are dismantled and rebuilt on site. Each building tells the story of a family that contributed to the development of the region. The Mertz cabin was built by a couple from Alsace-Lorraine who raised six kids on their farm. German immigrant Henry Hoch, a brickmaker, constructed his home in 1880, while the Conway cottage belonged to Dr. Frederick Bates, a physician farmer. The Queen Anne carriage house, now the park’s office, was owned by Miles A. Seed, who invented the photographic dry plates that made photography more accessible in the 1880s. Although their names are not well-known to most locals, these families’ small stories combined tell the narrative of 19th-century St. Louis. “It reminds all of us what St. Louis County used to be like, and it preserves vernacular architecture, which might entail everything from a simple log cabin like the Mertz home to a more affluent structure like the Conway house,” Foley says. Two additional buildings are under construction. The first is a Spanish Lake blacksmith shop, whose brick forge will be rebuilt this year by retired St. Louis bricklayers. The second, a mercantile store from downtown Fenton, is scheduled to be completed by next summer.

HOMEWORK] DEAR HOMEWORK,

I recently moved to Webster Groves and love the layout and backyard of our new home. However, the front of the house and large, sloped front yard make the house seem uninviting. I would love a critique! Sincerely, ———WISTFUL IN WEBSTER

DEAR WISTFUL IN WEBSTER,

AFTER

BEFORE

I don’t find your home to be unwelcoming, but if you do, I can only assume that you have a hypersensitive desire to be welcoming, which is a fine thing indeed. To upgrade the feeling of welcome, I suggest adding the kind of wraparound front porch so often seen in the homes of Webster Groves. I think in this case, the new porch substantially changes the overall feel of the façade, giving it more the ambience of a 1900s-era home than one built in the ’60s or ’70s. This new outdoor space would offer excellent views and privacy due to your steep front yard. With this new architectural feature, the residence now ‘presides’ over its site and presents the viewer with a number of charming details to entertain the eye. From your photo, it is impossible to tell if your two tall trees would be impacted. I have removed them and created a new Victorian-themed design that I think both complements the new look and contributes to your desired feeling of welcome. Anyone walking up to a home with an ample front porch brimming with furniture, a swing and plants would view this is as a place where they would look forward to spending time. This is an elaborate response to your original question, but would be the best and most effective way to say welcome. Thanks for asking. ———HOMEWORK HOMEWORK IS PENNED BY PAUL DOERNER, PRESIDENT, THE LAWRENCE GROUP. IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR HOME CRITIQUED, CONTACT US AT HOMEWORK@TOWNANDSTYLE.COM
