[ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR ] Mere mortals have just finished hauling out the summer clothes, but in the rarefied fashion realm, fall 2014 is already old news. St. Louis fashionistas got a glimpse of those fall trends last month, during a Fashion Group International screening of the couture runway shows. To be expected, some of the styles (a coat of feathers?) might not find an audience in the Gateway City, but plenty of the 2014 coolweather collection will. You’ll recognize many old faves—like plaids, fuller pants and long skirts. Totally new, however, is a big emphasis on outerwear. I’m not sure how to interpret this, but I think it means we’re supposed to purchase multiple coats. While I personally have never had a ‘coat wardrobe,’ I do know people who collect coats like they do scarves. Whether or not you’re going to embrace this notion, prepare to be tempted. And I understand bigger is better. (I guess I should have kept those ankle-length coats from the ’80s just a little longer.) In the shoe department, short booties are the next big thing. And in purses, rumor has it, the clutch rules, even though it is possibly the most inconvenient handbag, right after the Judith Leiber minaudière (which doesn’t really count, since it’s strictly for evening). As for colors, Neiman Marcus has named gray the new black (even though the old black will never go out of style). And knitwear is big in all categories. I guess that means we can expect to see plenty of knitted, floor-length coats. In gray plaid? —Dorothy F. Weiner Editor in Chief

COVER STORY

JOHN BURROUGHS SCHOOL

by tony di martino A CHILD’S MIND IS NOT A TABLET TO BE WRITTEN UPON OR A CISTERN TO BE FILLED, BUT A LIVING, GROWING ENTITY TO BE GUIDED, DEVELOPED, TRAINED AND INSPIRED. These words, written PHOTO: JOHN BURROUGHS SCHOOL

by the parents who founded John Burroughs School in 1923, still form the foundation of the school’s philosophy. “Education is not handed down from on high, from teacher to students,” says head of school Andy Abbott. “Burroughs is an active learning environment. We encourage students to be curious, to think for themselves, to question, to solve problems, to get involved. We help them discover and develop their unique potential in a community that provides a great deal of personal attention and support.” The college preparatory school, for students grades seven through 12, balances academics, the arts, athletics and extracurricular activities. “We’re committed to the whole person, so each student participates to an extent in all of these areas,” Abbott says. Campus growth always has been driven by student needs, he adds. “Now, thanks to the Campaign for Burroughs, we have new or enlarged spaces where our students can perform, compete and congregate. It’s the largest building project we’ve ever undertaken.” The campaign, launched in 2011, raised $45 million to build and maintain new athletic and performing arts centers, a new student commons, and an expanded central quadrangle. Led by chairman Steve Maritz with support from committee members Terry Schnuck, Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and Todd Schnuck, (all alums), the effort also established endowments to support scholarships, special programs, faculty

salaries and professional development. “It’s an ongoing campaign that ensures the school stays strong and has no long-term debt,” Abbott says. The new, 60,000-square-foot athletic center seats 600 and provides a multi-sport gym floor, cardio and weight rooms, offices, and locker rooms. The 53,000-square-foot Haertter Performing Arts Center, which seats 730, centralizes all teaching, rehearsal and performance space for music, dance and theater programs. The student commons provides an informal gathering place, and the expanded quad brings green space to the heart of the campus. The school recently celebrated completion of the expansion, which transformed nearly 40 percent of the campus. Parents, alumni, faculty and staff turned out in full force. “The reaction was overwhelmingly positive,” Abbott says. “Each space looks and feels like Burroughs—welcoming, comfortable and completely unpretentious.” The Lawrence Group architects and PARIC Corp., the general THE NEW ATHLETIC CENTER SEATS 600. contractor, maintained the campus’ gracious Spanish style and signature arches throughout. All additions are LEED-certified and sustainable, and the outdoor areas feature native Missouri plantings. Abbott has been at Burroughs more than 13 years. “I’m proud of our renowned programs, of course, but it’s our people who make it special,” he says. “We have a unique environment: outstanding, committed students and faculty, and deeply engaged parents and alums, all of whom have reverence for education, humanity, social justice and diversity. When they join forces, remarkable things happen. The Campaign for Burroughs ensures our school will remain strong as we move forward.”

TALK [TOWNS] OF THE

by bill beggs jr.

While city leaders from Ballwin and Ellisville have officially dissed any plans for a full city-county merger, with maybe any number of municipalities grumbling off to the side, Mayor Francis Slay and County Executive Charlie Dooley got together recently to unveil a unified approach to economic development efforts for the St. Louis metro. The AP reports they did this at a Clayton hotel (which, interestingly, they didn’t identify… although the news agency did mention it was on the ‘city-county border’). Well, why not a city space, like Windows On Washington? But, we digress. Joined by dozens of others in their respective governments, the two leaders of our city and county governments ‘repeatedly’ referred to their concerted effort to lure a new Boeing assembly plant to our area as an example of what working together, rather than being at cross purposes, could do. Um, that effort was unsuccessful. But it’s early yet, of course. St. Louis Economic Development Partnership was formed scarcely 10 months ago, and it will continue to be interesting to watch from the sidelines as opponents and supporters line up for this epic push and pull. ESPN is traditionally a network for all things sports—for Camaro’s sake, you can even watch stuff like auto racing on there. Anyhow, it stands to reason that a championship contest as prestigious as the Scripps National Spelling Bee was aired on the network, too. Gokul Venkatachalam of Chesterfield, 13 and a (recent) seventh-grader at Parkway West Middle School, was in Washington, D.C., for the national contest. It was his third time—and he placed third. Actually, it could be argued that he placed second, because two kids shared first-place for the first time since 1962. And if Gokul makes it through all the local and regional hoops as an eighth-grader in 2015, his final year of eligibility, he will have another shot at the $30,000 cash prize. The word he missed? Kierkegaardian—are you as smart as a seventh grader? The lights have gone out on yet another red-light-camera ordinance, this one in Creve Coeur. The program was suspended last year, and the city council voted late last month to repeal the ordinance. Elsewhere, after a state appeals court ruled that laws in Arnold and Ellisville violated state law, Ellisville voted in March to cancel its contract for the cameras. We’d have surmised that business overall has soured for American Traffic Solutions (ATS) of Tempe, Ariz., but the company website chirped with pleasure over its first-quarter results this year. It did seem, however, that the success was attributable to cameras that catch motorists who ignore school buses and scofflaws who zip through toll

booths, not so much business from red lights. ATS did note, however, that the St. Louis suburbs of St. John and Florissant had renewed their red-light contracts. Bull’s-eye! Aiming for a bigger store, Sign of the Arrow has found a 50-percent bigger space, and right down the street. The move west from 9740 to 9814 Clayton Road in Ladue (where the former Alixandra once operated) will be complete sometime this summer for the beloved boutique, which deals in the likes of needlepoint supplies and unique gifts. Oh, myyy… Daddy’s golf-themed monogrammed belt has shrunk! Maybe the Arrow can attach that stretched-out stitchery to a bigger one. I don’t know about waistlines, but bigger will be better for the niche nonprofit vendor. Storage was a problem, but the new space has a basement, so it won’t have to pay to keep stuff offsite anymore. And the parking

LADUE

lot, now crowded, will seem enormous: 12 spaces for customers and volunteers. Why the arrow? It’s key to the logo for Pi Beta Phi; the St. Louis alumnae club opened the store in 1966 and has donated $3.5 million (!) to dozens of institutions and organizations ranging from Ranken Jordan Pediatric Specialty Hospital to Opera Theatre of St. Louis. As far as we know, the former manager of the CVS Pharmacy in Maplewood wasn’t helping himself to any of the controlled substances available in that department. But the feds charge that he had his hand in the till, and in a big way. This goofball admitted to embezzling $30,000 from the company by processing the return of items that customers had never bought in the first place. Crime may pay, but in this case only temporarily. He faces a possible 10-year jail-time and $250,000 fine when he is sentenced in September. Begs the question: How does a convicted felon manage to deal with that debt? After a wait of about 10 months, a county court has ruled that Webster University may use the buildings it acquired in

2010 from Eden Theological Seminary. Judge Mark Siegel ordered that the City of Webster Groves issue a conditional-use permit (CUP) to the university within 60 days. The city council in August had denied the CUP, whereupon the university sued the city. Webster U. had purchased three buildings for $5 million: Luhr Library, Wehrli Center and another known as the ‘White House.’ Webster’s stated plans are to raze the latter for green space and to use the others for the IT department, alumni association and faculty senate. Additional plans include designing suitable accommodations for the school’s world-class chess team. Some residents believe the arrangement is symbiotic—if Webster can afford to repurpose buildings that the seminary, with its declining enrollment, cannot keep up, everyone wins. Meanwhile, a number of others remain concerned that the university’s expansion north across Lockwood Avenue may continue, perhaps lowering property values and compromising the community’s unique character. Jilly’s Cupcakes always have had a lot in common with ice cream: You can’t eat them with your hands because they’re too gooey and luscious. Many with a hankering for the soft and sugary already have relished mouthwatering trips to the sweetery on Delmar Boulevard for this incomparable spin on the ‘cupcake’ (air quotes ours). For awhile, there was a second location in Des Peres, but it closed about the same time the goodies became available at select Schnucks markets. All along the way, folks clamored for—yes, they screamed—for ice cream, and owner Jill Segal thought she’d have her new ice cream bar (get it?) open by last winter. The wait was worth it, and Jilly’s Ice Cream Bar officially opened the first week of June. Just a hop, skip and jump from the cupcake store, the ice cream bar (8509 Delmar Blvd.) offers 15 more varieties than have been available for some time at the cupcake place or Schnucks. Some are classics like you’d find at Baskin-Robbins. Others are suitably weird. A flavor of the month gets a lot of its taste and some of its texture (eww) from Lucky Charms cereal. Sorry, Jilly; I’m more a Froot Loops connoisseur. How to get Mom and Dad’s attention when their kids are skipping school? Put them on the hook for it. Parents probably don’t like it if their truant kids are at risk of going through a juvenile court process. But in St. Charles, it’s more than a matter of principle … or just so much aggravation. Beginning next school year, parents could face a misdemeanor charge and/or a fine if their children are truant too often. The fine is $300, which could come with 15 days in jail. Want a response from the folks? Just start threatening the pocketbook.

You might have heard a collective sigh of relief from around Grandel Square a few weeks ago when the former Sun Theater reopened, renovated after four decades of neglect, vandalism and weather damage. Rehabbed for $11 million by The Lawrence Group (including $4 million in historic tax credits), the theater is being leased by Grand Center Arts Academy, whose 535 students attend classes in the adjacent Beaux Arts Building.

as a performance space for the German community with a production of Faust … but backlash at the outset of World War I led to the first of many changes, including the name—to The Liberty, from its original title, The German Theatre. Post-war, there was a time for vaudeville and burlesque. It later showed films for the black community. At one time it even housed an evangelical church. Before the renovation, a wall was about to collapse. Trees were growing from the roof. Most of the plaster ceiling had crumbled. Opportunists had removed marble panels. The redo has shrunk the seating space from 1,800 to 600 (with some space dedicated to classrooms). And much needs to be done to make the hall ‘production ready,’ observers say. In any event, it will be a delight to experience the continued transformation of this historic theater, which we hope could one day complement the Fox and Powell. ST.

Q: I’VE PERFORMED VERY WELL IN MY JOB AND HAVE GOTTEN ALONG GREAT WITH EVERYONE AT WORK. UNFORTUNATELY, MY POSITION IS SLATED FOR ELIMINATION DUE TO A BUSINESS REORGANIZATION. BEFORE I’M LET GO, I’M BEING ASKED TO WORK WITH A FELLOW EMPLOYEE WHOSE CURRENT DUTIES WILL BE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE THOSE I HAVE NOW. WHEN I GO TO INTERVIEW FOR A NEW JOB, I KNOW IT WILL BE IMPORTANT FOR ME TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE JOB I’M LEAVING BEHIND? IS THERE ANY REASON I SHOULD WANT TO MAKE A GOOD ‘LAST’ IMPRESSION?  ——Keeping a Stiff Upper Lip   A: If you’re on good terms with your present employer and colleagues, you’ve succeeded in generating a very valuable commodity going forward: a good reputation. It goes hand-in-hand with a good work record and, together, they can be your passport to finding  even better  employment opportunities in the future. Your reputation will usually follow or precede you when applying for a new job—as many prospective employers check professional references to determine if an applicant is a competent,  hard-working and honest person, rather than a slacker or troublemaker. Understand that your professional reputation can be as important as your skill set. With all this in mind, I believe it behooves you to do your level best to work with your replacement with as much care and courtesy as possible, until you either secure another job or are discharged from your present position. By working diligently until then, you can burnish your reputation as a dependable employee who perseveres to complete his/her assigned tasks in a manner that reflects a superior work ethic. Being a ‘class act’ should earn favorable, if not glowing, recommendations. Such kudos can be worth their weight in gold and quite possibly make all the difference when vying  for a new job. Incidentally, if you’ve already received recognition for a job well done, you might consider asking your current employer to directly refer you (when the time comes) to another firm. If they  could do that for you, it might put you on the inside track with that other company. All things considered, the latter part of one’s employment may well be the most important, as an employee is generally remembered more for his/her most recent work performance. I suggest you play the hand you have been dealt with a good sportsmanship-like attitude, and take care in performing your final duties. Keep in mind that a career opportunity might open up for you at any time; therefore, try to maintain high marks and your professional standing, so you can bring to bear every advantage when an opportunity presents itself.  IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR JOAN, SEND IT TO BUSINESS@TOWNANDSTYLE.COM.

>>What brought your family here?

In celebration of St. Louis’ 250th birthday, Town & Style is compiling and sharing tales from readers about family histories in St. Louis. To share your story, email us at tellus@townandstyle.com.

Our grandparents, Scotland-born George Graham and German-born Amelia Mueller, fell in love while crossing the Atlantic by ship. The captain married them, and they later settled in Maplewood. He became the chief engineer of Fairbanks Soap Company in St. Louis, and together with Amelia raised five boys and two girls. During the Depression, our father, Roy F. Graham, worked for Stock-a-Fire Company, trading furnaces for food or goods. After learning he had a severe heart problem, he bought a car lot a few doors from his home in Webster Groves, where he sold plants. It became Old Orchard Gardens, and eventually expanded to a second location in Manchester. Dad helped Webster Groves grow in many ways. He built the apartment buildings that sit on the Old Orchard property now, as well as the offices across the street. The latter are still owned by the family. Roy and his wife, St. Louis-born Mildred Marten, daughter of Dr. William Marten, were married one month short of 60 years. They had three children, Robert (deceased), Marilyn Guier of Ballwin and Susanne Jacobsmeyer of Chesterfield, and 12 grandchildren.

DAVID PHILLIPS WITH THREE GRANDDAUGHTERS

Around 1960, my parents, David and Carolyn Phillips, came to St. Louis from Oklahoma and Indiana for local food service jobs. After studying hotel and restaurant management in college, David started working at Pope’s Cafeteria on Manchester Road. In 1985 he founded his own company, Food Service Consultants. Carolyn, who had worked for a local beverage company, became vice president. The couple had seven children together, all of whom worked in some capacity with food or the family business. I carry on the family legacy as executive chef at Balaban’s in Chesterfield. In a typical St. Louis twist, Balaban’s co-owner Steve McIntyre got his first job out of college with my dad.

TOM, GEORGE, ROY, ETHEL, MILTON AND MADALINE GRAHAM

My St. Louis roots go back to my paternal grandfather, who helped sponsor the tent city near today’s Skinker Boulevard at the 1904 World’s Fair. Tent City allowed residents to camp and visit the fair for extended periods. My father, Elmer Creamer Fewell, earned a degree from Washington University in electrical engineering and worked at Union Electric. My mother was primarily a homemaker and pursued her artistic interests. I was their only child; they settled in North County, primarily Wellston and Normandy for the school district. I graduated from Normandy High School, where I was an active orchestra member, which led me to music degrees and private teaching. In 1968 I joined the Ladue School District to establish the elementary string programs. A result of that program is the popular Ladue Strolling Strings Ensemble—strolling violins, violas and cellos mingle with the audience and perform in a fashion reminiscent of earlier gypsy violinists across Europe.

This photo from 1946 highlights the days of Pevely Dairy’s horse-and-wagon milk delivery to homes and chunks of ice for the kids. At its height, Pevely had more than 300 routes operating in St. Louis. My family owned the business for 102 years, until it was sold in 1989 to Prairie Farms.

BOOKSHELF FRIENDSHIP VILLAGE CHESTERFIELD BOOK CLUB

by stephanie zeilenga

]

ABOUT THE CLUB That education is a lifelong pursuit is certainly something the ladies in Friendship Village Chesterfield’s book club can attest to: their thirst for continuing education led Jennifer Russell, community life services director, to start the club years ago. Books were initially chosen by the St. Louis County Library’s outreach program, but selection was taken over in the past year by club leader Barbara Berger. “The library furnishes me with a list I can choose from, and sometimes members offer suggestions,” she says. “We need to be able to get a certain number of copies from the library, and some members need large print, others need books on CD.” Often, members can pick up the title at the bookmobile that stops by Friendship Village each week. Meetings are informal, and no one is pressured to speak, Berger says. While part of the allure of book club is social, members also enjoy the exposure to a variety of genres and titles. “Most people get in a groove of reading one kind of book,” Berger says. “This expands the types of things they read and, with the bookmobile, they don’t have to go anywhere, which for a lot of people can be a problem if the weather isn’t great.” ABOUT THE BOOK Jacob Hunt, a teenager with Asperger’s syndrome, is obsessed with forensic analysis. One day, he finds himself accused of murder, in part because the typical tics and social oddities of his condition look a lot like guilt to law enforcement. House Rules explores what it’s like to be different and the effect Asperger’s has on a family.

[ opinions ]

>>“I enjoyed the book. It was quite readable and I would recommend it. The author held my interest through to the end.”

—HELEN MICHAELSON SCHWARZ

>> “One of the things I liked best was the weight of the book. I lost 5 pounds carrying it around— it was terribly repetitious.”

—BERNIE WAMPLER

>>“I was impressed with the author’s research on Asperger’s. The disease caused psychological problems for the main characters.”

Ask the Expert

Question: My sister just saw a doctor about facial rejuvenation and she mentioned facial implants. I thought those were used to enhance a weak chin. How can they be used for rejuvenation and are they safe?

Answer: Traditionally, facial implants were used almost exclusively for facial augmentation— especially for those with a weak chin or flat cheekbones. Men often sought chin augmentation to project a stronger, more masculine appearance. In a general sense, all facial implants are used to add volume to a deficient area. In the case of a weak chin, it is a congenital loss of volume that requires correction to restore normal appearance. As we age, we lose bony and soft tissue volume throughout the face. We hear a lot about the use of filler substances to add volume to the mid-facial area and to restore the cheek bones. However, there are no permanent injectable fillers, so repeated injections are necessary to achieve the desired effect.

Unlike injectable fillers, facial implants add volume permanently. They are best thought of as an addition of bony or skeletal volume to the face. The most common forms of cheek and chin implants are solid silicone and have a very good safety profile. Once the implants become incorporated, they rarely cause problems and patients soon forget they are there. Because opting for facial implants is a big step for some patients, we often use an injectable filler that allows the patient to experience the look and feel of implants. The newer chin implants can restore a smooth contour to the jawline and enhance the upper neck. Cheek implants provide support to the mid-facial soft tissue and restore permanent volume there. When used in conjunction with facelift and resurfacing procedures, facial implants offer a distinct advantage over long term use of fillers in the appropriate patient. Your sister can talk to her facial plastic surgeon about options for facial rejuvenation. Together, she and her physician will develop a treatment plan based on her rejuvenation goals.

THE FAVORITES |

GOD BLESS FREE-MARKET COMPETITION—

that is my gut response to the new RBar menu at Ruth’s Chris. During happy hour, 4 to 6:30 p.m. on weekdays (including Friday), you can order some of this town’s finest food for $8 a dish, and many of the dishes are full-out entrees. Of course, you’re likely to be side-swiped by a pomegranate martini or two (also specially priced at $8) while you’re at it, but that doesn’t change the fact that this newly launched Sizzle, Swizzle & Swirl Happy Hour menu is a sweet deal. Started in May, the eight offerings are split evenly between meat and seafood, all $8 a plate except Filet Oscar, which at $16 is still a steal (after 6:30, the RBar menu items jump to $11 to $21). I assume this attractive marketing move is a preemptive attempt to upstage other nearby steakhouses (the new 801 Chophouse recently planted itself in Clayton, and

Morton’s, on Bonhomme Avenue, has long been a competitor). If they’re trying to bring people in the door and build customer loyalty, I think they’re on to something. Seared Ahi Tuna was a delicious display of premium fish, a light sear around the edges, with salt, pepper and a little Cajun seasoning. It came with spicy pickled ginger and a little mass of pickled cukes and red peppers—an excellent dish and almost enough for a light meal. Actually, when you consider the warm bread loaf they bring to the table, it is enough. Smoked Salmon Chips is a plate of large, thick-cut potato chips turned bright orange from a coating of Cajun salt and piled high with capers, diced red onion, creme fraiche and the best smoked salmon I’ve had outside of Canada. The flaked fish was moist, with a wonderfully delicate smokiness—subtle and sweet. Here again, you could make a light meal out of this,

as there are four massive chips with plenty of topping on each. Love lobster? There’s the Spicy Lobster platter, a pile of fried lobster chunks glazed with that tasty Thai chili sauce everyone loves; it’s sweet and spicy at the same time, with visible red pepper flakes. I’ve saved the best for last, Filet Oscar, which is a serious-sized portion of 4-ounce filet piled with lump crabmeat, asparagus spears and bearnaise sauce. And the dish comes on a sizzling hot plate, just like Ruth’s Chris dining room steaks, and doused with hot butter. So to recap: your choice of eight entrees, seven of them for $8 each. And lest you’re worried about getting your greens, many dishes include some kind of salad fixin’s (Tenderloin Skewer Salad, Crab BLT with Zucchini Fries). If there’s a downside to this, it completely eludes me.

might be my childhood adoration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Maleficent is one of the best parts of the story, a deliciously deviant villain, as glamorous as she is frightening. Here Angelina Jolie, playing the title character, delivers all that, but the plot swirling around her feels flimsy when stacked up against the original fairy tale. With the success of Wicked, revisionist fairy tales are something of a fad, and that concept is interesting. Unfortunately, here it veers far too wildly from the original. The film opens with Maleficent as a young fairy frolicking around the Moors, a magical kingdom. She falls in love with Stefan—one day to be Aurora’s father—who later betrays her to become king. In the end, she is a misunderstood hero rather than a villain, a wasted opportunity to shade the original evil character with layers of complexity. Elle Fanning stars as the teenage Aurora, but doesn’t have much appeal, largely the fault of the script. She mostly smiles in wonder at the world around her. Although this is based on a fairy tale heavily reliant on magic, the CGI creatures populating the Moors feel silly and corny, a misguided bid to cater to younger children. SHOULD YOU SEE IT?

Jeffrey Korn and Marc S. Rubin founded the group two decades ago, after Straub’s closed its breakfast bar, their usual morning hangout. Korn, a former shoe supplier, reveals the lilting accent of his native South Africa as he describes how the club came to be. (“We asked for Mandela, and they gave us Jeffrey Korn,” someone cracks.) Korn explains the club meets at City Coffeehouse & Creperie because, in his opinion, “It’s the best coffee shop in Missouri.” Plus, it has plenty of room for the boisterous bunch, which occupies the front room from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., at which time members take their cups across the street to sit outside at the Cardwell’s patio. New faces are welcome, notes Alan Silverberg, who joined two years ago when a friend invited him. “The first words out of their mouths were, ‘Sit down, shut up, and welcome to the group,’” he says. Rubin, an attorney (“Put the word ‘prominent’ in front of my name!”), proudly announces he’s the only participant who’s not retired. The others protest: “He’s a lawyer, he doesn’t work!” Their office days may be behind them, but these seasoned St. Louisans have an impressive breadth of backgrounds. There’s Kim Tucci, co-founder of The Pasta House, and Myron Klevens, who helped start St. Louis Bread Co. John Reid’s Federal Reserve cap reveals his former profession. And the guys are quick to boast that Larry Baker was recently honored with a Clayton Alumni Hall of Fame Distinguished Educator award for his years teaching economics at Clayton High School. Each is eager to offer his own point of view about Wall Street Journal headlines and the Cardinals’ batting lineup, and at times it’s impossible to discern what’s being discussed. But they all want to hear what Jimmy Manion thinks. “He’s like the guy from the Dos Equis commercials: the most interesting man in the world,” someone says. “And old as the hills!” Manion, who placidly reads the paper amidst the hubbub, smiles when asked about his coffee companions. “It’s very difficult to learn anything because they all talk at the same time,” he says. “But it’s a nice group of guys. They’re no dummies. They’ve all worked, so they’ve got a little smarts to them.” For all their teasing, the guys care about each other, Manion says, remembering how they called to check on him when he was out of town and missed a week of meetings. Before the party breaks up around 9:15 a.m., they drag Ann Gallardo, owner of City Coffeehouse, across the street to testify. “She knows everyone by name, and knows their birthdays,” Klevens says. Gallardo calls them her best customers, then amends herself. “You don’t know how much these guys mean to me,” she says. “They’re more than friends—more like family.”

THE GATESWORTH] by tony di martino

MAKING NEW FRIENDS WHEN YOU’RE OLDER CAN BE A CHALLENGE,

especially when you find yourself in a completely new environment. But The Gatesworth offers residents lots of opportunities to socialize and share common interests—including a seven-hole putting green for golf enthusiasts of all abilities. Three happy hackers shared their experiences with us.

[ PAT ALLEN, AGE 94 ]

When I moved in five years ago, I was so afraid I’d be lonely. I’m from Kansas City and didn’t know a soul in St. Louis, except for one of my daughters who lives here six months a year. But the other residents kept asking me to join them for dinner or happy hour. This place is such fun. I take three exercise classes a week, and there’s a putting green! I’ve always loved golf. When the mood strikes, a couple of the girls and I grab a club and hit the green. Not long after I moved in, I visited my daughter in California. As she drove me to the airport, I promised I’d call as soon as I got ‘home’—and that’s when I realized The Gatesworth was my home.

[ TOM BURKE, AGE 74 ]

Before I retired, I was purchasing director for a division of GM in Chicago. Two of our six children and their families live here and told us about The Gatesworth. We’ve been here a year now. It’s spectacular. Cookie, my wife, calls it a stationary cruise ship! The staff and residents are wonderful. They made the transition easy. I go out to lunch with the guys at least once a month, and couples and singles go out on the town together. We also have three restaurants on site, and the food is amazing! If not for the fitness center, pool and putting green, I’d weigh 2,000 pounds. I’m an avid golfer. I learned the game when I caddied as a boy. Caddyshack is required viewing in our family. I work on my putt at The Gatesworth’s putting green. They’re having putting contests this spring and summer, and it’s a great way to make new friends. You can bet Cookie and I will be out there.

[ JACK WARD, AGE 77 ]

Donna and I moved here a year and a half ago. I grew up in St. Charles, but left the area in 1970. My career as a real estate/golf course developer took us all over the country. We never intended to come back, but The Gatesworth won us over. It’s better than anything we saw in Scottsdale or Dallas—and I don’t have to mow the lawn! Everyone is so welcoming. We go to the theater, opera and museums, and to a different restaurant every week. If I’m off fishing or golfing, I know Donna has plenty to do, friends to do it with and a limo to take her there. Myself, I like the putting green. Putting is half the game. It’s a good way to stay fit as you age, because it doesn’t take extra power—just skill.

ARE YOU READY TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN AGAINST SKIN CANCER and premature aging? Take the guesswork out of choosing a sunscreen with the following expert tips. First, if you still have last year’s sunscreens, it’s probably time to replace them. “Most sunscreens have an expiration date printed on the bottle, and using an expired sunscreen may mean the product is not as effective,” says Dr. Kara Blackwell, a W.U. dermatologist. chemical v physical

According to Dr. Joseph Muccini, a dermatologist at MidAmerica Skin Health & Vitality Center, chemical sunscreens allow the sun into the skin, but make it less harmful. Physical sunscreens, which include titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, are most often referred to as ‘sunblocks.’ These products do not allow the sun to get into the skin and have the advantage of working immediately, unlike chemical sunscreens, which require 20 minutes to become effective. “In addition, the physical sunscreens are now micronized in premium products, so they no longer make you look like the white-nosed lifeguards of the 1980s,” Muccini says.

water-resistant v waterproof

There’s also an important difference between ‘water-resistant’ and ‘waterproof.’ “The FDA considers a product ‘water-resistant’ if it maintains its SPF level after 40 minutes of water exposure. A product is considered ‘waterproof’ if it maintains its SPF level following 80 minutes of exposure to water,” Muccini says.

spray-on v lotion

Spray-on, lotion and other forms of sunscreen all can be effective, as long as they’re applied correctly, according to Blackwell. “It’s important to make sure you’re applying enough—about 1 ounce is needed to cover the exposed areas of your body,” she says. As for concerns about the chemicals used in sunscreens, Blackwell says all the chemicals have been studied by the FDA and deemed safe. “The most current scientific data does not show that the ingredients in sunscreen are associated with hormonal issues, cancer or any other health problems in humans. There is evidence that sunscreens can prevent skin cancer.”

what’s in a number ?

One of the most common misconceptions about sunscreen is that anything over an SPF of 30 is a waste. That’s simply not true, according to Muccini. In fact, he says SPF 30 should be thought of as the minimum and recommends that most people use at least an SPF 50. “The nuance of this issue is that some people get a false sense of security if they think they have a high-SPF sunscreen. Studies have shown that people use too little sunscreen in the first place and don’t reapply as often as they need to.”

Next, make sure your sunscreen protects against both UVB and UVA rays. “SPF rating systems are only an indicator for UVB protection. Higher SPF numbers do not necessarily guarantee better UVA protection,” Muccini says. “The word ‘broadband’ or ‘broadspectrum’ is often the way somebody knows there is UVA protection. Also, higher SPF sunscreens usually contain a more reliably included UVA protection component.”

just say yes!

Of course, summer is not the only time you need to think about sun protection. “UVA rays, which can cause photoaging and skin cancer, can penetrate car and office windows,” Blackwell says. If the threat of skin cancer is not motivation enough, Blackwell reminds us that sunscreen has other benefits. “It also prevents signs of aging caused by sun exposure, like brown spots, uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores, wrinkling and sagging skin.”

Skin care can be an enigma. How much sun is too much sun? What should we look for in our skin cream—glycolic acid or retinol? Do we really need to drink 64 ounces of water a day? One thing’s for sure: as the largest organ of the body, skin deserves plenty of TLC. Read what the experts recommend.

therightstuff

WITH THOUSANDS OF PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET—and probably a dozen or more in your medicine cabinet— finding the right ones for you, without breaking the bank, can be challenging. Here’s a rundown of the most popular products and ingredients, as well as an easy step-by-step skin care routine.

CLEANSE, CORRECT, PROTECT. REPEAT!

SKIN CARE NEEDS TO BE A DAILY EVENT, and there’s no way you’re going to continue a regimen that’s too difficult or complex, says Dr. Amy Miller, of St. Louis Skin Solutions. “Three basic steps are all most people need. The catchphrase is cleanse, correct, protect. A morning routine of cleanser, antioxidant and sunscreen hits all three steps in just a few minutes. In the evening, cleanse again, use an anti-aging component such as a retinol, and then moisturize. Easy!” When choosing products, the first rule is to match them to your needs at the time. “Those can change dramatically depending on hormonal changes, season and aging. In general, hyaluronic acid and ceramides are good to look for, but be aware that what works today may not be right forever. That said, dry skin generally benefits from hyaluronic acid and ceramides, acne-prone skin responds well to salicylic acid or retinols, and signs of aging may be slowed or smoothed with peptides, glycolic acid and retinols,” Miller says. “Most people benefit from antioxidants, and growth factors derived from plant stem cells are a newer addition that can be beneficial for many skin types.” Good skin care products do not have to cost a fortune, either, according to Miller. Beneficial ingredients can be found in inexpensive creams and serums, but carrier ingredients, stabilizers and manufacturing procedures can affect how your skin reacts to the product. Allie Israelson, a senior esthetician and spa manager at Nayak Plastic Surgery and Avani Day Spa, says it may be worth splurging on medical-grade products. “You don’t need 12 different skin care products; just a few good core ones and your once-a-month treatments will do the trick,” she says.

EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE

“Exfoliating removes the dead outer layer of your skin to improve its texture and stimulate new skin growth,” Israelson says. But don’t over-exfoliate—do it two to three times per week. Alpha-hydroxy acids provide an effective way to loosen the outer layer of skin and are mild enough for almost anyone. Israelson also likes the Clarisonic® brush, used daily for a deeper cleaning and exfoliation. For at-home use, Miller recommends glycolic cleansers and enzyme masks. She says avoid at-home microderm abrasion and chemical peels. “These are definitely not recommended,” she advises. “Both carry the risk of serious injury and should be left to the professionals.” Miller also recommends avoiding walnut and apricot exfoliators in favor of a round, synthetic bead. “Natural or irregular grit can create microtears in the skin.”

MONTHLY

“Facials provide a deeper exfoliation and cleanse than is possible at home, and improve the skin’s texture and overall tone. Another benefit is that you will get better results from your regular skin care products too, because they’ll be able to penetrate deeper,” Israelson says. Depending on the provider and package chosen, facials may also include microderm abrasion and chemical peels and can range from $65 to $125.

:: TRY THIS ::

The only supplement SLU dermatologist Dr. Natalie Semchyshyn recommends to prevent sun damage is polypodium leucotomas extract (commercially, Heliocare or BhyzoCare PLE). There is scientific data that shows this powerful antioxidant, derived from a South American fern, is effective. The effects are strongest an hour after ingesting, so take it prior to outdoor activities in conjunction with topical sunscreen.

ANTIOXIDANTS

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E and carotenoids (like beta-carotene, lycopene and lutein) help protect healthy cells and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and certain cancers. “Foods high in antioxidants help protect skin cells from free radical damage, which breaks down collagen and results in fine lines,” Friedman says. “Sun, smoking, pollution, alcohol and stress can all cause free radical formation.” HIGH-ANTIOXIDANT FOODS INCLUDE: berries, dried beans, tomatoes, artichokes, prunes, pomegranate, plums and nuts. Interestingly, there’s evidence that Montmorency cherries help repair sunburned skin, and green tea (also high in antioxidants) improves skin elasticity and moisture, according to Friedman. While it’s generally best to get your vitamins from food, Semchyshyn says it can be difficult to increase antioxidant levels in skin through diet or supplements. “I recommend topical antioxidants for the skin that contain phloretin, ferulic acid and vitamins C and E. Topical vitamin A derivatives such as retinol (or prescription tretinoin) have proven anti-aging effects on skin.”

beauty foods:::::::: “You can build better skin from the inside out,” says Diane Friedman, a registered dietitian nutritionist with Evolution Fitness. “A healthy diet plentiful in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and healthy sources of protein and fat can add suppleness and protect against sun damage, redness, wrinkles and dryness.”

THE HEALTHY FATS

Foods high in essential fatty acids, like fish, seeds and nuts, can reduce acne and wrinkles, according to Semchyshyn. “They have anti-inflammatory effects; inflammation can cause acne and aging changes in the skin,” she explains. Flax seed and salmon are particularly high in omega-3 fatty acids, which prevent dry, dull skin. Avocado is high in monounsaturated fats, vitamins A and C, and fiber to enhance your complexion. Researchers also are studying omega-3 fatty acids, along with probiotics and tea, for possible beneficial effects on eczema, Friedman adds.

DRINK UP!

Good hydration is important to keep skin looking its best. “Beverages containing caffeine and/or alcohol can contribute to dehydration. Plain water is best for hydrating and getting nutrients to our cells and helping to flush out toxins,” Semchyshyn says. But more is not better. “If you have dry skin and are well-hydrated, you don’t need extra water, you need a good moisturizer. A good rule of thumb is eight 8-ounce glasses of fluids a day,” she says.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHOCOLATE

For years, our moms have warned that eating chocolate and greasy chips would cause acne. And guess what? There’s good evidence now that refined carbohydrates can increase the chances of developing acne and wrinkles. “It’s best to avoid white bread, pasta, sugary soft drinks, potatoes, sweets and processed foods. The hormones in dairy also can cause flare-ups in people with acneprone skin.” Semchyshyn says. “As for chocolate, that is more individual. While no study has shown that it causes acne, I have patients who know they break out after eating chocolate or certain foods.” There is one exception. “Dark chocolate, at least 70 percent cocoa, is actually good for the skin,” Friedman says.

[ WHATSUMMER WESCENTS LOVE IN…] by dorothy weiner | photo by bill barrett

JUST AS WITH A CLOTHING WARDROBE, we in the Midwest get to change our cosmetics wardrobe during the summer months. After all, it’s hot and humid—we can’t expect the same heavy creams and perfumes from the colder weather to be comfortable in the sunny days of summer. Lighter and fruitier is the way to go. Even primarily ‘spicy’ colognes can have some fruity notes, so be sure to pick carefully. With the tendency to want a little more personal space during warm weather and the ever-present hint of perspiration, any scent you use will seem exaggerated. Here are some we like.

<< BOND NO. 9 HUDSON YARDS

From the wildly popular New York brand that commemorates Big Apple neighborhoods comes Hudson Yards, scented with high notes of freesia, lily of the valley and pink pepper oil. Newly launched April 1. $285 at Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom

<< JO MALONE SILK BLOSSOM

This London line has come out with a new fruity and floral limited edition for summer. Silk Blossom simulates the scents that attract hummingbirds and butterflies, with apricot, heliotrope and moss. $120 at Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom

<< LIBRARY OF FLOWERS FIELD & FLOWERS Light as a summer breeze, this fragrance is delicate and subtle—it’s for you and you alone. The packaging is sweet, too. $56 at Mr. Guy Women’s

<< L’OCCITANE NEROLI & ORCHIDEE

A new fruity scent from Provencal nameplate L’Occitane combines exotic notes of Moroccan neroli with white orchid from Madagascar—light and delicious. $75 at Nordstrom, L’Occitane and Sephora

<< KATE SPADE LIVE COLORFULLY

A bright and sweet scent, this fragrance has top notes of water lily, mandarin and star anise. It’s light but stays with you through the day. $95 at Nordstrom and Kate Spade

<< RANCE LE VAINQUEUR

The French perfumer Rance offers Le Vainqueur, a paean to Napoleon (the vanquisher). This scent is reminiscent of the Mediterranean with mandarin, grapefruit and bergamot top notes. $120 at Sallie Home

<< CARVEN L’EAU DE TOILETTE

$85

The French design house Carven has added a soft floral to its popular lineup. $79 at Saks and other fine department stores

FORGET 40 AND FABULOUS. Christie

Brinkley has given new meaning to 60 and stunning, thanks to her fit figure, flawless complexion and her most recent body-baring People magazine cover. The mother of three, former supermodel and health-conscious glamazon may have set the bar high for what it means to age gracefully, but that doesn’t mean you can’t borrow some of Brinkley’s beauty secrets. A self-proclaimed health nut, Brinkley has credited her beautiful body to a strict vegetarian diet since age 13 and an active lifestyle that includes yoga, paddleboarding and cycling. But if you’re not quite ready to give up meat or hit the gym five days a week, mastering Brinkley’s beauty routine is a regimen almost any woman can master.

TOO MANY YOUNG ADULTS

go off to college with no experience in balancing a budget or managing a checkbook—and it costs them. So it’s up to you to teach them. Start with delayed gratification. It teaches them to be less impulsive and more thoughtful about what they want. An allowance is an excellent way to instill lessons about money. Having their own money lets kids learn the value of things, the need to budget, the value of savings, and the principles of tithing. If your child wants you to buy a new Lego set when he/she is in the toy store, that’s a good time to say, “I’m not willing to buy that for you, but if you really want it you can use your own money.” First off, the sticker price alone will be a jolt of reality for them. And if they really want it and don’t have the cash, they will have to delay gratification, earn extra money, and consciously save their allowance. The ball is in their court, and if they end up saving for it and buying it two months later, they will really appreciate it and take extra-good care of it. Help them open a savings account to understand interest. Also, if you don’t have much expertise in financial planning, find someone who can help them do a little investing in the stock market for some real-life, hands-on experience with using money to earn money. On a more metaphysical level, they need to understand the principle of abundance. When I asked my parents to buy me things growing up, the mantra I heard was: “Who do you think we are, Nelson Rockefeller? Do you think money grows on trees?” So what I developed from that negative talk was a ‘scarcity mentality’ that told me there would never be enough and that life was hard. It took me a lot of work to undo that attitude as an adult. I want kids to grow up believing that if they work hard they can achieve what they want, and that there is actually ‘more than enough.’ People who don’t have fears and negativity around money are more relaxed, optimistic and make better decisions about it. But it’s also important to understand that having more ‘things’ does not bring more happiness. Research has demonstrated that once above the poverty line, more money has no significant effect on happiness or fulfillment. Having money can mean having more options and opportunities. It can provide another way to be of service to others through acts of philanthropy. But I don’t want kids to grow up making wealth the driving force behind their decisions about career and life. People with this motivation end up with more mental health problems, poorer relationships, and lower levels of happiness and fulfillment. And of course, model what you want your kids to emulate by the way you yourself handle money. Wealth and abundance should be appreciated, but first they need to be taught.

DAFFODILS

To me, a room just isn’t alive without something ‘wild,’ so I’m always on the lookout for odds and ends in the garden to bring indoors. I do this year-round because all four seasons offer something you can use for arrangements. The keys to having fresh bouquets in any season are an open mind and planning. First, think beyond summer and spring flowers: foliage, berries, interesting stems and even vegetables all can give you something to bring inside, no matter the temperature. Next, think ahead a season or two about what you want to use, and plan accordingly. If you want dahlias in autumn, get the tubers planted in spring. Here are some ideas about what to grow for yearlong natural beauty—indoors.

DAHLIAS

HYDRANGEAS are classic garden shrubs for partially shaded areas in the garden, and they make gorgeous bouquets. The secret to keeping the flowers from wilting is alum. Cut the blooms early in the day and immediately put the stems in water. When you get into the house, re-cut the stems and dip them in alum before arranging in a vase. Alum keeps the cut from healing over and allows the stem to take up water. HYDRANGEAS

WINTER

Violas and pansies are perfect for dainty bouquets on a side table or nightstand. For interesting branches, choose early spring flowering shrubs like quince, the deciduous holly Ilex decidua or colorful red twig dogwood.

SPRING

Among my favorite spring cut flowers are spring bulbs, Japanese camellias, peonies and larkspur. Daffodils, tulips and hyacinths are lovely as cut flowers or potted in plastic containers you can slip into a decorative vessel once the blooms start to appear.

SUMMER

GOLDENROD

Hydrangeas, roses and lilies are summer standbys, but don’t forget about foliage and some of the more unusual blooms. Try hosta leaves and ferns for a monochromatic arrangement, or coleus for bright color. For something unusual, plant allium ‘Globemaster’ bulbs in fall to get early summer blooms. The purple baseball-shaped flowers also are well-suited for drying.

FALL

Autumn is all about richly hued flowers, harvests from the vegetable garden, dried gourds and ornamental grasses. Dahlias really shine this time of year with bold colors that are stunning in arrangements. For foliage accents inside the home, plant red mustard greens. P.

[HOMEWORK: DEAR HOMEWORK,

My husband and I love the neighbors and convenient location of our U. City home. Now that our children have moved out, we think it’s time to hit the refresh button. We need to remove the struggling dogwood and the dying sycamore at the edge of the driveway. We are also considering reinstating the former walkway from the front steps to the sidewalk. That said, our main question is about the style our renovations might take. To our eyes, the house is rather drab; what suggestions do you have? Sincerely, ——— UNCLEAR IN U. CITY

DEAR UNCLEAR IN U. CITY,

I understand how decades of living in the same residence can make one a bit blind to its possibilities. To my eyes, your all-brick home presents a unique opportunity to delve into several aesthetic directions. You will notice, though, that all three schemes remove the sycamore, add the new walkway and replace the dogwood with some vertical evergreens that help block the view of the house on the left. Leaving those issues constant allows us to study the aesthetics of the façade in isolation.

wood brackets coat of arms

coach lamp

copper roof

SCHEME I This version enhances the home’s Mediterranean architectural features. The wide roof overhang has been augmented by the large wood brackets characteristic of fine Italian buildings. In addition, new stone balusters, coat-of-arms details for the blank arched areas, and a new coach lamp add supporting details that reinforce an Italianate feel. A tan paint wash ages the home, again making it feel more Mediterranean.

SCHEME 2 The next version paints the structure white and adds black shutters, which give the façade an urbane feel. Versailles-type planter boxes ornament the entry terrace, and a new copper roof at the front door adds drama. A new coach lamp is placed between the French doors. The overall impression of this scheme is totally different from the current residence. Different colors, of course, could be used, but these create the greatest contrast with the present façade (and with the next-door neighbors).

versailles planter boxes

SCHEME 3 The final design takes the property into a more Georgian direction. A new, columned and pedimented porch gives an elegant focus to the composition. Dark green shutters contribute to the Georgian feel, and new window boxes add an additional detail and a big dose of charm. In this version, a wood bench accessorizes the entry terrace.

All three of these schemes show ways to improve a drab home through many different initiatives. I hope these options open your eyes to your home’s potential. ——— PAUL D.

What do local buyers and sellers think about their agents?

Janet McAfee Real Estate

We have known Pamela for approximately 10 years now. She was a neighbor at our previous home (which she helped us purchase) and is a wonderful woman. We contacted her again when we were ready to downsize and she found us a home that was perfect! We would never make a move without her. —J.WALKER OF ST. PETERS

T&S HOME

g n i t s AT HOME] o h FATHER’S DAY

by stephanie zeilenga

Although most dads are perfectly happy with a simple backyard barbecue of burgers and brats, there’s no reason you can’t pull out all the stops for him on Father’s Day! This year, consider throwing a nautical-themed bash for all the dads in your life. THE DECOR

THE WAKE-UP CALL

Long before guests arrive, treat him to a captain-worthy breakfast in bed. Pair a traditional bloody mary with smoked salmon or trout and gourmet bagels with all the fixin’s—fresh dill, cream cheese, capers, lemon wedges and thin slices of red onion and radishes.

THE MENU

Stock the bar for one or two classic cocktails, such as martinis or gin and tonics.

Mother’s Day might be all about brunch, but the grill is king on Father’s Day. For appetizers, grill jumbo shrimp seasoned with salt and pepper and wrapped in thin slices of high-quality prosciutto. Serve alongside cheese and crackers and miniature crab cakes. For an extra-luxurious event, offer blinis topped with caviar and crème fraîche.

For the main meal, grill premium steaks from The Smokehouse Market at Annie Gunn’s, where you also can purchase rubs, sauces and sides to go along with the meal. Pair with a bright, fresh salad, roasted vegetables and cheesy potatoes.

Decorate in crisp navy and white, accented by pops of red.

Set a classy, yet whimsical, tablescape. Fill large glass hurricanes with a few inches of white sand topped with white candles. Group silverware together with thick rope. Accessorize with anchors, seashells, compasses and model sailboats.

THE ACTIVITIES

To keep young kids occupied, have them decorate nauticalshaped sugar cookies. A large variety of themed cookie cutters can be found online and are available locally at Cornucopia in Kirkwood and Sur la Table in Plaza Frontenac. No young kids around? Consider purchasing beautifully decorated cookies from The Cakery.

THE GIFTS

If you want Dad’s gift to match the nautical theme of the party, promise him a weekend getaway at Lake of the Ozarks, complete with a sailboat rental from Ozark Yacht Club.

Perhaps he’s meticulous about keeping his beard or mustache trimmed, or maybe he prides himself on the clean-shaven look. Either way, treat him to a premium shaving kit from The Art of Shaving.

And what dad wouldn’t enjoy an evening of whiskey or scotch tasting? The Wine and Cheese Place on Forsyth regularly hosts tasting events.
