[ LETTER FROM THE EDITOR ] It’s always inspirational to see people follow their passion. In today’s issue we have a fashion story about a new clothing line by three St. Louisans. The designers are two young women with sartorial skills (one of them, our beauty columnist Marylyn Simpson); the sponsor is a philanthropist with a vision and an appreciation for all things vintage. So it’s no surprise to learn that The Scarlett Collection (named for Scarlett O’Hara), is inspired by the past. The clothing is characterized by details like peplum waistlines, sweetheart necklines and tropical prints, a la Carmen Miranda. That, too, is no surprise, with Fox co-owner Mary Strauss in the mix as the sponsor. One step inside her home is enough to reveal how much this woman adores the glory days of Hollywood and all that accompanies them. Her house is dotted with costumes worn by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra and Joan Collins in Dynasty. These are displayed on mannequins in the parlor(s), sitting rooms and all over the third floor—as stand-alone artwork. And rightly so. The Strauss collection of movie costumes and other memorabilia is simply too extraordinary to be kept behind closed doors. Strauss agrees, so it’s finally getting a public airing, Oct. 4 to Dec. 28 at the Sheldon Art Galleries. And it all will be free and open to the public so that we can, as Strauss describes it, “be transported to a fantasy world of beauty, perfection and romance.” Sign me up. —Dorothy F. Weiner Editor in Chief

SANDY DONNELLY, FRIENDS OF BIRTHRIGHT PRESIDENT, AND GALA CO-CHAIR WENDY BOVERI

COVER STORY

FRIENDS OF BIRTHRIGHT

by tony di martino CAYLA WAS UNEMPLOYED and in an abusive relationship when she found out she was pregnant. Marisol, who had no health insurance, was trying to raise a young son with special needs when she discovered she was expecting. Expectant mom Sydney was homeless. Each of these women considered terminating her pregnancy, even though they didn’t want to; Marisol had even scheduled an appointment for an abortion. Then they heard about Birthright, where they received professional counseling, emotional support and scholarships. Today, all three women are in school or employed—and the mothers of happy, healthy babies. Since 1971, Birthright Counseling St. Louis has been providing ongoing support and practical assistance throughout pregnancy to women of all ages and economic circumstances. “We understand the many pressures women can encounter when faced with an unintended pregnancy,” says Sandy Donnelly, president of Friends of Birthright. “We want them to know they have options other than termination. We help them make calm, fully informed decisions so they can choose life for their child. We then support their choice by providing whatever they need to deliver and care for their baby, either directly or through referrals to community agencies.” Approximately 3,000 women each year receive services at Birthright Counseling’s four locations. “More than 90 percent of them choose life for their babies,” Donnelly notes. Free, confidential services include pregnancy testing, professional counseling from master’s level counselors and social workers, referrals to medical care and other resources, and prenatal and parenting education. Assistance can include scholarship support as well as career and life skills training. “Support continues as long as the mother needs it,” Donnelly says. The agency relies on individual, foundation and corporate donations to keep its doors open. A major source of funding, the annual Lighting the Night for Life Gala, takes place Sept. 7 at Grant’s Farm. The event is co-chaired by Wendy Boveri and Michele Forshaw; Rick Forshaw serves as fundraising chair. Major sponsors include Rick and Patti Thoman and Rick and Michele Forshaw. Former St. Louisan and Birthright board member Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, will receive the Msgr. Hartnett Award. Dolan will be welcomed by St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson. Proceeds from the event support Birthright’s counseling services. “Up to 40 percent of our annual operating budget is generated by fundraising activities hosted by Friends of Birthright, and the gala is our biggest event of the year,” Boveri explains. This year’s gala will be especially festive, she adds: “It’s Friends of Birthright’s 30th anniversary, and we’re honored Cardinal Dolan will be here to help us celebrate.” Birthright allows women the space they need to talk through their feelings and concerns regarding their pregnancy in a safe, supportive environment, Donnelly says. “We empower women to build a healthy future for themselves and their babies.”

PHOTO COURTESY OF NCJW

by judy goodman WHEN CAPABLE WOMEN GET TOGETHER for a common cause, a lot can happen. Indeed, that’s the case with the National Council of Jewish Women – St. Louis Section. They are a “grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action.” Currently, there are 5,000 members and supporters. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for women, children and families, and safeguard individual rights and freedoms. These are lofty goals. But if you know these women and this organization, you know they have done it all. Founded in Chicago in 1893 by Hannah G. Solomon, the national organization of NCJW had 93 delegates representing 29 cities. Just two years later, the St. Louis Section came on board with 34 members. They worked to address unmet needs in our community. In 1919, they made a significant difference by introducing a free milk program in the St. Louis Public Schools. Other early success stories include providing interest-free loans for post-high school education, initiating English language and Americanization classes for immigrants in 1926, and caring for World War I refugees. Many of the nonprofit organizations we know today originated as NCJW programs. For example, the NCJW Scholarship Committee began in 1920, giving their first loan to a nursing student. This program eventually became an independent, non-sectarian organization, and in 1960, it was established as the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis.

Also in the 1960s, NCJW planned the Delcrest Apartments, a 144-unit housing facility with activities for low-income seniors. In 1995, the independent Gladys and Henry Crown Center for Senior Living (Delcrest II) was dedicated. During the seventies and eighties, NCJW established other programs that now operate on their own, such as Legal Advocates for Abused Women, Child Abuse Protection Program and Court Appointed Special Advocates of St. Louis County. Trying to meet a need in 1941, NCJW, with Frances Schwab as president, opened The Council Shop, which is the longest running resale venue in the region. While helping women, men and children with clothing, accessories and household goods, the shop grew to be the largest source of revenue for NCJW. In 2011, NCJW offices and The Resale Shop relocated to 295 N. Lindbergh Blvd. During the past decade, NCJW’s Back-To-School! Store has served nearly 10,000 children and the Kids Community Closets have dressed more than 3,000 children. The need only grows and this year, they will have new clothes, school supplies and food available to about 4,100 children. Current president Marlene Hammerman is especially proud of their most recent recognition for Healing Hearts Bank, a micro-lending program to help women out of domestic violence situations. Clearly, NCJW volunteers are inspired to continually consider who needs help and what they can do to positively intervene.

TALK [TOWNS] by bill beggs jr.

By fall, another restaurant that doesn’t seem to bill itself as ‘for the calorie-conscious’ will have opened in the space The Fatted Calf vacated in March: Potbelly Sandwich Shop. Actually, the name derives not from a belt-busting stomach, but the potbelly stoves that are part of the decor in the Chicago-based chain’s locations, the first of which opened here in Creve Coeur at 11615A Olive Blvd. Nothing lasts forever, of course—especially restaurants, whose life spans should perhaps be measured in dog years. By that yardstick, The Fatted Calf has been a fixture of St. Louis cuisine since nearly the dawn of time. Did you know that legendary restaurateurs Vince and Tony Bommarito opened the first location in St. Louis in 1966? Or that the Clayton spot followed in 1969 at 12 S. Bemiston Ave. after the Bommaritos sold the concept to a Boston company? Potbelly has 270 stores and serves toasted sandwiches, salads, soups, chips and milkshakes (and I guess only the latter two are a challenge for dieters). Some would say that sports, in general, fall into the category of virtual reality. Watching them on television is, for sure. And at most ‘sports’ bars, that unreality flickers from every angle on who-knows-how-many big-screen TVs showing games current and pre-recorded. (NFL highlights in July?) But there’s one place that takes unreal to the next level: Fantasy sports leagues are a unique offering at Post Sports Bar & Grill, which even offers fantasy-league champs something real: the opportunity for their names to be engraved on a bona fide trophy. Really? The Post recently opened its second spot in the old Growlers Pub

OF THE

location, 763 Old Ballas Road in Creve Coeur (the first is at 7372 Manchester Road in Maplewood). Would-be fantasy players, pay attention—The Post posts this caveat on its website: If your fantasy sports league wins any of our contests, we reserve the right to verify that your league exists … Really. Rock Hill’s loss may be Maplewood’s gain, if the Book House can successfully ink a deal to move a few miles east of its present location, a quaint old home that will be razed for the development of a storage facility. As we’ve mentioned before, but we’ll say it again for those who may have missed it the first time (and we paraphrase): We’re sure the storage facility will be state-of-the-art and all, and there will probably be plenty of light there to read 24-7-365… end paraphrase. But at what price? The current Book House is in a gabled Gothic Revival building that dates to before the Civil War! Alas, that will not survive; the storage facility is nearly a done deal with Rock Hill officials. But will the Book House be able to rise like the proverbial phoenix? What remains in a state of flux, reportedly, are issues ranging from owner Michelle Barron’s relationship with her current landlord, a July 30 date to vacate, and ongoing discussions with the new owners about whether she could stay put for a few months while she and supporters try to sort things out. In technical terms, it’s a hot mess. Wherever baseball or softball are played, anyone who parks a certain angle and distance from home plate has taken the risk of needing paintless dent removal services. Some schools display obvious

signs for those not prone to this BGO (Blinding Glimpse of the Obvious). That ka-thunk you heard may have been the high foul ball completing its descent onto your car. The school is held harmless; you were warned, after all. But what of the driver on a public road near a golf course whose car gets smacked by an errant shot? Reportedly, when the driver on South Berry Road near Westborough Country Club asked what they could do about it, he got little more than a shrug. Wow. Some courses have signs warning the public of the inevitable, others have insurance; many have both. What’s the deal here? Does the club fear cars with golfball-shaped dents will suddenly line up outside its gates? A moratorium on redevelopment south of the intersection of Manchester and Kirkwood roads was to be discussed July 18 at Kirkwood City Hall. At first blush, this seems to be closing the barn door after the horse has run away. Near where Manchester crosses Kirkwood, are auto dealerships or lots, an older

KIRKWOOD

car wash and gas station, an aging strip center and an office building. Of course, the area in question, a rough triangle whose southern boundary point is three blocks south, is surrounded by residential areas. Who’s eyeing the intersection, and for what? Target and Walmart are already south of town. Wait—there isn’t a mega gas station with two dozen pumps, convenience store / deli / etc. for, like, at least a few blocks. We’ll keep you posted. Week in and week out, police reports in the area include items like these: 1. Handgun stolen from truck. 2. GPS unit and cell phone stolen from car. 3. Items stolen from home. The ‘duh’ heard around the world is that: 1. The truck was not locked. 2. Neither was the car. 3. The garage door to the home was left open. To revise a PSA from the 1960s: Don’t let a good boy become a knucklehead. Lock your car. Take your keys. Why do people even report such daft behavior? It certainly can’t help their chances of receiving an insurance settlement. It seems most blurbs from the police blotter in Richmond Heights concern arrests for or reports of shoplifting from one store or another at the Galleria (to which a friend lovingly refers as the ‘Gonif Arena,’ gonif being the Yiddish word for a crook). One recent theft was for $28, another for $29; but, a third report was for miscreants who made off with two pairs of sunglasses valued at $740. (Over two lifetimes, I couldn’t lose enough nice sunglasses to add up to that amount.) At any rate, this latest arrest report concerns not a theft, but an attempted sale—of marijuana, at the movie theater. A tip of the hat to

TOWN & COUNTRY

the undercover officers who collared this knucklehead, whom some among us would claim is only guilty of a ‘victimless’ crime. Others would say the same about shoplifting. Perhaps this perp was only trying to sell enough pot to cover the price of admission, plus pay for a large soda and popcorn? Zombies don’t get any respect. And why should they? They’re rude. They stare, they don’t have good table manners, and their personal hygiene leaves much to be desired. Plus, their legendary diet consists of the brains of the living. So, if you have any brains, you’d better run. That’s exactly what about 3,000 participants in a ‘zombie run’ at Queeny Park did a couple of Sundays ago. The 5k run this year was a benefit for the National Children’s Cancer Society and the Active Heroes organization. In part. With a $50 entry fee, the Pennsylvania-based company that staged this event could afford to go Hollywood. There were helicopters. There was smoke. There were professional makeup artists going for gruesome. And there were red balloons. In some iterations of a zombie run, runners wear Velcro flags that their opponents, the ‘zombies,’ try to remove. In this case, they wore balloons. If you make it through the race with both balloons intact, you’re healthy. If you retain one, you’re ‘infected.’ If you lose both, you’re dead. Well, undead. It means your zombiefication is complete. Any of you who still doubt the impending zombie apocalypse can blithely go on about your meaningless lives. The rest of us know they’re out there. And they’re after our … balloons. A loop in The Loop? Who knew? U. City traffic engineers are taking a test-run approach to a ‘roundabout’ on the west end of the Delmar Loop, at Trinity Avenue near city hall. Though officials say safety for motorists and pedestrians has been a concern at the location for some time, the traffic circle is getting a jump start from Uncle Sam: It would be constructed with funds from the federal outlay for the Loop trolley project. The intersection is expected to be closed for a few days to reroute traffic in a circular pattern, and engineers anticipate they will evaluate the layout for at least 30 days, and perhaps into fall. If preliminary results are to the city’s expectations, a permanent roundabout will be constructed next year. Some have criticized the change for aesthetic reasons, but engineers hope to allay those concerns via the test run. Anyone concerned about appearances, though, overlook orange traffic cones for the time being.

PATTY HANNUM, RASCHELLE BURTON, KAREN KELLY AND DAVE BECKWITH

What’s the chicest way to move forward after a divorce? Emmis Communications exec Karen Kelly kicked off her PERSONAL INDEPENDENCE DAY surrounded by friends and associates at Louis Vuitton-Plaza Frontenac. The celebration included custom cupcakes, French champagne and, but of course, a stunning new LV bag for Kelly. Among those present at the high-style soiree were T&S BackTalk columnists Patty Hannum and Raschelle Burton and LV store manager Dave Beckwith.

NBC-TV recently commissioned MATT HIRSCHFELD (Ladue High School, ’98) to create caricatures of 12 of the network’s shows, including Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show. The drawings appeared in three issues of Variety, the showbiz bible. Matt moved to Los Angeles six years ago after a drawing he did for the movie Crash was bought by Lionsgate Films. He is a distant relative of award-winning caricaturist Al Hirschfeld, also from St. Louis. His parents are Adrienne and Mark Hirschfeld of Ladue.

ST. PATRICK CENTER

has transformed an abandoned factory on the city’s near north side into affordable housing for the homeless. The four-story St. Louis Stamp Co., built in at the center of change 1870 and listed on the National Registry of Historic Buildings, also offers support services for St. Patrick clients. The $9.8 million project, renamed St. Louis Stamping Lofts, was financed by tax credits and consists of 56 new studio apartment units.

Alice Handelman was named the 2013 honoree of the WOMEN’S AUXILIARY FOR THE JEWISH AGED. Handelman, who served as community relations director at the former Jewish Center for the Aged for 18 years, was recognized for her years of service on behalf of the elderly.

Guess who’s the poster boy for Companion baking’s 20th anniversary ad campaign? ANDY COHEN! The Bravo producer is a member of the Allen Foods family his great-grandfather started, and cousin of Josh and Jodi Allen Gordon, owners of Companion.

CHARLIE’S TOWN

[ Sorry, kiddos, but BRADBURN’S PARENT TEACHER STORES in Creve Coeur and St. Louis have already started their back-to-school sales. ]

[ Fifty years ago this week, President John F. Kennedy

took to the airwaves in a nationally televised speech expressing fears over the effects of nuclear testing on children’s health. The address came after a group of St. Louis researchers known as The Committee for Nuclear Information asked parents to donate their children’s first teeth for a study called

THE ST. LOUIS BABY TOOTH SURVEY.

Moms responded with enthusiasm: 325,000 baby teeth were collected! Scientists at Washington University and St. Louis University tested the teeth and determined they contained the radioactive isotope strontium-90, a byproduct of nuclear weapons testing. In July of 1963, the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union agreed to a Nuclear Test Ban Treaty prohibiting the testing of nuclear weapons in the air, underwater and in outer space. The treaty is still in effect. ]

[ Does anyone really go from the mail room to the corner office? Yes. DAVE ROEMER started in the mailroom at Six Flags St. Louis 41 years ago. Today he is the park’s president. ]

[ A St. Louis couple will be featured in a new Showtime series starting Sept. 29. Masters of Sex, based on the Thomas Maier book, will portray the life and work of WILLIAM H. MASTERS AND VIRGINIA JOHNSON, the husband-and-wife sex research team. The duo’s work at Washington University in St. Louis in the 1950s and 1960s wiped out centuries of sex myths. ]

[ Someone sent me a 1978 copy of St. Louis Magazine highlighting LOCAL SALARIES. Here are a few

examples: U.S. Sen. John Danforth: $57,500; St. Louis Mayor Jim Conway: $25,000; Marc Twain Bancshares president John Dubinsky: $43,000; St. Louis Cardinal Lou Brock: $175,000; Emerson CEO Charles F.

ABOUT THE CLUB A commemorative brick in Longview

Farm Park bears the phrase so often uttered by the well-versed women of the Strathmore Book Club: We read that. For 20 years, the group has met monthly, September through June, at a member’s home to discuss literature of all genres. “I most enjoy the camaraderie and spending time with other people who enjoy reading and love books,” member Julie Hermann says. “I like taking it to another level and learning about people and their ideas too, and where they’re coming from.”

ABOUT THE BOOK Featuring a unique cast of misfits, The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti tells the fictional story of Ren, an orphan missing his left hand who becomes the protege of a mysterious criminal in early New England.

Earn your degree at a University ranked among the best in the Nation with one of the lowest tuition rates in St. Louis!

[ opinions ] >> The bizarre events and other eccentric characters in the story lead you to believe Ren is going to be led down a tragic and criminal path. What happens instead is heartwarming and leaves you rooting for Ren and Benjamin. This book contains outstanding imagery and descriptions of the characters and scenes. I would especially recommend this book if you like Dickens or even John Irving. - JULIE HERRMANN

>> I really enjoyed this book. Reading all of the hardships that this young boy went through was hard but by the end you were cheering for him and you never expected a happy ending. This is why I love book club: It makes me read books I would not have read because they are hard to read emotionally. - LISA OLIVER

by jeff melnick

PETE PRINZI HAS BEEN WITH THE CARDINALS FOR 17 YEARS, including the last 14 at the major league level as the strength and conditioning coach. His run includes three World Series appearances and two championships. Pete sat down recently with Town & Style. Q. HOW DID YOU BECOME A STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH? A. I was the strength coach at Florida State. The opportunity came up with the Cardinals and I thought it

would be a nice challenge.

Q. WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR THE GUY BEHIND THE SCENES? A. We’re all in it together. You kind of live and die every day, and it’s how you deal with it. Q. DO YOU EVER THINK ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOU PLAYED OR WORKED WITH TWO OF THE GREATEST LEADERS IN PROFESSIONAL SPORTS: FOOTBALL COACH BOBBY BOWDEN AND TONY LARUSSA? A. Absolutely. Coach Bowden, I’m very lucky to have been there. He truly cared about each individual. And Tony, to be there for the most special part of his career is truly amazing. Q. WHAT WAS IT LIKE PLAYING IN THE EUROPEAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE? A. I played in Stockholm, Sweden, for three years. Going overseas is something I think everyone should do.

I loved it.

Q. HOW DO YOU HANDLE VETERANS VERSUS YOUNGER CARDINALS PLAYERS? A. You’ve got to take each guy on an individual case. The older guys, you have a lot more that comes into

connecting our community.

play with past injuries.

Q. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PLAYERS WHO HAVE TAKEN HGH OR PEDS? A. Well, obviously they shouldn’t be doing it. Before MLB instituted their drug policy, it was still wrong. I

think some of the guys who did take it, if they could do it all over probably wouldn’t.

Q. THING YOU LOVE BEST ABOUT ST. LOUIS? A. I love the fact that’s it a baseball town. Q. WHO WAS YOUR IDOL GROWING UP? A. I was a quarterback, so I liked Terry Bradshaw; he was a hard thrower. Q. FAVORITE FAMILY ACTIVITY WITH WIFE ELLEN AND YOUR TWO KIDS, LUKE (AGE 2) AND SAMANTHA (SOON TO BE 1)? A. Just being with the family. Anytime I’m with them is great. Q. IF YOU WEREN’T A STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING? A. I’d be a civil engineer. That’s what I studied in college. SPONSORED BY

certainly are young to be business owners—especially since their company predates them. But the owners of Diamond & Jewelry Brokers, which turns 35 this year, grew up watching their father help customers with engagement rings and other special purchases. “Both of us have been here as long as we can remember, literally walking on top of the glass cases,” Michael Haddad says. Diamond & Jewelry Brokers, a member of the elite Independent Jewelers Organization, specializes in loose diamonds and fine jewelry, plus appraisal, custom design and on-site repair. Only 850 companies worldwide belong to IJO, which sets high standards for ethics, service and selection. As a member, Diamond & Jewelry Brokers has access to jewelry lines offered at any IJO company, so they can bring in almost anything a client may see online. The Haddad brothers believe their level of customer service has distinguished the business from the beginning. “We have always strived to set the bar very high as far as customer service,” Alexander Haddad says, “making sure every customer leaves with a smile on their face. When you treat people right, it comes back to you.” They even travel to Antwerp, Belgium, to select stones personally for their clients. But the Haddads hope to do even more. Diamond & Jewelry Brokers has its own iPhone application, The Vow, which offers 3-D images of engagement rings, and the brothers are developing a comprehensive website, set to launch in 2014. Fun promotions include Pray for Rain, which refunds the cost of a couple’s engagement ring if it rains at least 1 inch at Lambert Airport on their wedding day. Last year’s Wish for a White Christmas promised a refund to all customers who purchased jewelry between Black Friday and Dec. 18 if it snowed at least 2 inches on Dec. 25. And, Michael Haddad says, “Every bridal customer gets a custom champagne bottle we make for them.” Taking over the family business at such a young age is an honor for the brothers. “It’s definitely a lot of responsibility to have,” Haddad says. Alexander Haddad agrees. “Just like anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. As young entrepreneurs, we spend endless hours working in and on our business. It’s a 35-year-old family business, but with lots of new, creative ideas infused into it.” DIAMOND & JEWELRY BROKERS IS LOCATED AT 473 LAFAYETTE CENTER IN MANCHESTER.

MY DIVORCE. I WAS SHOCKED AT THE WILD SPECULATION AND FALSEHOODS. THEY FOUND OUT I OVERHEARD WHAT THEY WERE SAYING, AND NOW THEY AVOID ME. HOW SHOULD I DEAL WITH THIS? ——Hurting in Maplewood

A: There are few things more stressful than unbridled gossip about you behind your back. I would try to put the brakes on this right away by asking each colleague separately to meet with you. I would calmly say: “I think we need to clear the air regarding the subject of my recent divorce because I want us all to remain friends.” Then proceed to put to bed any nasty rumors. I would not chastise either colleague—even if I were aching to do so—as it would only aggravate the situation. Consider that you may have to work in close proximity with them in the future, and to cross paths socially. Although you may have lost respect for them, they don’t have to know it. Show you’re big enough to keep your cool. Q: I’M A HAIR STYLIST, AND I’VE NOTICED THINGS STARTING TO FALL APART AT THE SALON WHERE I WORK. THE FLOORS AND BATHROOMS ARE NOT KEPT CLEAN AND CUSTOMERS ARE STARTING TO COMPLAIN. WHEN I SHARED MY CONCERNS WITH THE OWNER, HE DIDN’T CARE. WHAT TO DO? ——Upset in the Lou A: Unless I had a compelling reason to stay, I’d consider finding another salon hook on which to hang my curling iron (assuming I’m not barred from taking my clients). Alternatively, getting the other hair stylists together to implore the owner to make improvements might prompt change, but the owner could tell you all to ‘take a walk.’ It’s your call. Q: I JUST INTERVIEWED FOR A JOB AND WHEN ASKED ABOUT SALARY, I THINK I PROPOSED AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT. IT’S BEEN TWO WEEKS AND I HAVEN’T HEARD BACK. IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET MY FOOT BACK IN THE DOOR? —— Anxious in Ballwin A: Frankly, you may have given the impression that you’d be dissatisfied with anything less. I’d contact the interviewer to inquire if the position is still available. If so, I would emphasize that your desire to work at the company is much more important than the initial compensation, and you’d be pleased to negotiate a mutually agreeable salary. IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR JOAN, SEND IT TO BUSINESS@TOWNANDSTYLE.COM. JOAN LEE BERKMAN IS A MARKETING AND PUBLIC RELATIONS CONSULTANT.

MEET THREE FUTURE LEADERS IN THE FIELDS OF POLITICS, THE ARTS AND BUSINESS. THEY’RE JUST STARTING TO COME INTO THEIR OWN, BUT THEY’VE ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH. CHANCES ARE, WE AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET. patrick brown ::: SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO ST. LOUIS MAYOR FRANCIS SLAY

The brightest and best young St. Louisans all too often leave town when job opportunities beckon from bigger cities. Not Patrick Brown. “There’s tremendous opportunity right here,” says Brown, 27. “I mean, where else can the son of a waitress go from a job at the mall to a job in the Mayor’s office? It wasn’t quite that easy. Raised by a single mother—“I get my work ethic from her”— Brown began bussing tables at 15 while still a student at St. Mary’s High School. He often held down two or more jobs, while also attending school (first at Forest Park Community College, then at Saint Louis University) and interning for political campaigns. “I was hooked on politics from the start,” he admits. “I loved the fast pace, loved hearing stories from staffers who’d been on the campaign trail.” He graduated from SLU with a major in political science and was hired by Mayor Slay at the tender age of 23. He started in the trenches, manning phones and knocking on doors. Today, Brown’s many duties include helping aldermen and departments introduce and sponsor legislation. “It’s exciting to witness the crafting of public policy from the ground up,” he says. He also heads the Mayor’s Vanguard Cabinet, a forum where young professionals and creatives can contribute ideas about policies and programs. “It’s all about encouraging civic engagement and responsibility among the next generation of urban leaders.” He lives in the Grove, not far from where he grew up. “I’m proof that St. Louis gives young people the access and ability to make a difference. We want them to stay here and contribute their talent and energy,” he says. Just like he did: “I was born and raised here. I choose to live here, stay here and make St. Louis a better place.”

erin schreiber ::: ASSISTANT CONCERTMASTER, ST. LOUIS SYMPHONY

At the age of 4, when most kids were still playing with Tickle Me Elmo, Erin Schreiber began studying the violin. “I loved to sing, and my mom and dad took it as I sign I might have musical talent,” she says. “I was too young to take voice lessons, so they enrolled me in the Suzuki violin program at SIU-E.” Even as a child, Schreiber, now 25, loved the sound: “When I was 7, I knew I wanted to be a musician for the rest of my life,” she recalls. “Practicing never felt like a chore.” By the time she was in her early teens, Schreiber was participating in national competitions and commuting from her home in Elsah, Ill., to Chicago every other week for lessons. During her last year at Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, she heard the St. Louis Symphony needed an assistant concertmaster. “I auditioned, and was thrilled to be accepted,” she says. She was 20 years old—the youngest assistant concertmaster in the country. In addition to playing the violin, her duties include making sure the concertmaster’s instructions are carried out by the entire violin section. Schreiber lives in the Central West End. To unwind, she takes a hip-hop dance class—and plays the violin. “I love Mahler, Beethoven, Brahms, and Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin,” she says. She has no idea what she wants to do in the future, as long as it involves music. “For now, there’s nothing more amazing than being onstage, surrounded by music as it fills Powell Hall,” she says. “It’s such an intense, beautiful energy— an experience like no other.”

danielle smith ::: SOCIAL MEDIA ENTREPRENEUR

You know you’re on the cutting edge when your job title didn’t even exist a few years ago. Danielle Smith is an author, speaker and social media entrepreneur. Raised in Los Angeles, she started out as a TV reporter. But after on-air jobs in Yuma, Ariz., and Springfield, Mo., she grew tired of sticking a mic in a bereaved parent’s face and saying, “I’m so sorry your 3-year-old drowned in the bathtub. Do you want to talk about it?” So 12 years ago, she followed her former sports reporter boyfriend, Jeff Smith, to his hometown of St. Louis, where they married, moved to O’Fallon and had a couple of kids. Her ah-ha moment came in 2008. “I was tired of the way moms, including me, complained about motherhood whenever we got together,” she recalls. She started a video blog, ExtraordinaryMommy.com, that focuses on what’s wonderful about parenthood. Procter & Gamble discovered the blog and sent her to the 2010 Olympics to interview athletes’ mothers as part of their ‘Thank You, Mom’ campaign. The 40-year-old now has more than 60,000 followers on social media. She attributes her success to embracing social media wholeheartedly. “I met the co-author of my first book, Mom Incorporated, through social media, and we got our second book deal when Wiley, publishers of the Dummies series, discovered my blog,” she says. Their latest book, Social Media Engagement for Dummies, is a no-nonsense guide to maximizing the use of social media platforms. “It’s not about simply conveying information; it’s about who you’re trying to connect with—and how to do it effectively.”

TOWN TALK

GET TO KNOW ] CLARK PORTER OF FERGUSON

by tony di martino | photo by bill barrett

WHAT I DO I’m a program support specialist at the U.S. Probation Office for the Eastern District of Missouri. As co-founder of Project Re-direct, I help former prisoners, including repeat offenders, stay out of trouble and find a path to a new life. WHY I DO IT When I was 17, I robbed the U.S. Post Office on Fourth Street with a sawed-off shotgun and was convicted of a felony. I was tried as an adult and spent 15 years in prison. When I got out, people who cared helped me. Not every ex-convict is that lucky. That’s why too many of them end up right back in prison. ORIGINS I was angry all the time. Nobody knew what to do with me. I grew up in the foster care system, living in seven foster homes and five residential treatment centers from ages 4 through 16. I dropped out of school in the ninth grade. By the age of 15, I was living on the streets of JeffVanderLou, stealing to get by. Robbing the Post Office seemed like a good idea at the time. GREAT AWAKENING About five years into a 35-year sentence, it hit me that I was going nowhere. I knew there was no one to blame for my problems but me, and I was the only person who could solve them. I decided to use my survival skills to my advantage for a change. That’s when things started falling into place. EDUCATION I got my GED in prison. As soon as I got out on probation in 2001, I found a job and went back to school at Forest Park Community College. A teacher showed some of my papers to a dean at Washington University. They offered me a scholarship, and I got my undergrad degree, then a master’s degree in social work from UMSL. CAREER PATH In 2009, I applied for a job with the probation office. Doug Burris, chief U.S. probation officer, and then Chief Judge Carol Jackson went to bat for me. Today, I work for the very same system that sent me to prison. I couldn’t have done it without help from family members who stood by me, fellow inmates who gave me books and taught me how to write, the correctional officer who encouraged me to get my GED, and a Greek Orthodox priest who listened. SATISFACTION When I help an ex-con get a job, find a decent place to live or go back to school, that’s a win. But it’s not easy. These guys come out with no education, no job skills, no motivation. Many were abused and neglected as kids. Sometimes I want them to succeed more than they do! BEST ADVICE I EVER GAVE Take responsibility for your mistakes, but don’t let yourself be defined by them. IF I RULED THE WORLD More money would be spent on education and job-training in prison. GOAL To do more for at-risk kids and ex-convicts on a national level.

Las Vegas-based Pinnacle Entertainment, which owns casinos in Louisiana, Missouri and Indiana, is planning to sell St. Louis’ Lumière Place Casino, HoteLumière and The Four Seasons Hotel in order to move ahead with its acquisition of Ameristar Casinos. The Federal Trade Commission had previously complained that Pinnacle’s ownership of three out of six St. Louis-area casinos would result in lower payoffs for gamblers in Missouri and Illinois.

HOMETOWN SHOUT-OUT

Speaking of The Four Seasons Hotel … our very own Four Seasons St. Louis was just named by Travel & Leisure magazine as the No. 4 Best Large City Hotel in the United States (No. 83 in the world)! Additionally, TripAdvisor named it one of the Top 25 Luxury Hotels in the U.S. Not bad at all.

DOWNTOWN DEPLETION

The announced closing of Macy’s at 601 Olive St. marks the end of an era and leaves St. Louis without a downtown department store. The Railway Exchange Building housed the Famous-Barr flagship store starting in 1924, then became the headquarters of May Department Stores. Macy’s bought the company and in 2006 continued to run it as a department store.

RESTORE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Habitat for Humanity St. Louis opened a 48,000-square-foot ReStore in DesPeres July 20. Located behind Sam’s on Manchester Road, the store resells new and reusable home construction and remodeling supplies to the general public. Proceeds assist Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to build safe and affordable housing for the St. Louis community.

IT’S A MIRACLE! Distinctions in Creve Coeur’s Westgate Centre is now carrying the Miracle Body line, made of ultra lightweight stretch material that flatters the female body. The pants have ‘discrete’ tummy control panels and slightly higher, mid-rise waists to eliminate muffin tops. The tops, too, are designed to hide a multitude of sins.

GLAMOUR GIRLS BY DOROTHY WEINER

PHOTOS BY BOB MILANO

What’s more, we all know it when we see it, and lucky for us, St. Louisans will be seeing a lot more of it soon. That’s because Mary Strauss is putting her significant influence—and expertise—behind a couple of glamorous initiatives. To coincide with St. Louis Fashion Week, Sept. 26 to Oct. 6, Strauss has partnered with two young local designers to create The Scarlett Collection, a line of clothing reminiscent of Hollywood’s glamour years in the early 1900s. Strauss is part-owner of the Fox Theatre and a cinema buff who has amassed an extensive collection of old movie posters, photos and lobby cards that feed her passion for the subject, and these have become the impetus for The Scarlett Collection. “Aren’t these just magnificent?” she asks while showing off photos of Marlene Dietrich, Lana Turner, Elizabeth Taylor and Academy Award-winning costume designer Edith Head. It’s easy to see old Hollywood’s influence on The Scarlett Collection, in its cinched waists, tap shorts, wide-lapelled jackets and flowing palazzo pants. Interestingly, they’re all constructed of ‘bark cloth,’ the textured cotton fabric used in the wildly floral and leafy drapery of the 1940s through ’60s. (The name ‘Scarlett’ is a nod to the Gone With the Wind heroine’s creative use of drapes when she needed new gowns during the Civil War.) Strauss, a devotee of all things glamorous, has amassed rolls of the fabric over the years and is having it copied for the vintage-inspired clothing line. Using the new fabric, also bark cloth, the budding designers, Marylyn Simpson (who happens to be the T&S 32 |

beauty columnist) and Heather Lampe, have created 19 original pieces that will debut on a special runway for Fashion Week. Initially the clothing will be available by special order, and ready within three to four weeks of ordering. Strauss expects to take the line nationwide, at least. “It’s not going to be for everyone,” she concedes. “But I also want to show that people didn’t always live in jeans. Today, you can go to a Broadway show and see people in shorts! I believe clothes set the tone. Actors say they occupy a role’s personna as soon as they put on a costume; well, what does that say about us when all we wear is jeans?” But her interest in glamour (and in bringing a little of it back to St. Louis) doesn’t end there. A longtime collector of vintage gowns—many with movie star provenance—Strauss is curating a special exhibition of these Hollywood ensembles to be shown at the Sheldon Galleries in Grand Center, starting with a public reception Oct. 4. Among the 14 pieces people can get up close and personal to is the gold-corded gown Elizabeth Taylor wore in Cleopatra (1963); a dress Joan Collins wore as Alexis Carrington in Dynasty (1981); and a costume of Susan Hayward in With a Song in My Heart (1952). Many of the gowns will be displayed alongside photographs or movie posters of the starlet who wore them, sometimes showing her in that gown. Entrance to the exhibition is free and open to the public. Strauss, a lifetime advocate and philanthropist for the arts, says she is following her passion in this project. “I have worked all my life for other organizations; this one is for me—and for the two young women I want to launch,” she says.

I D❤! MASHA D’YANS & COLIN MULLIGAN] by rebecca koenig | photos by amber gress

12 | 12 | 2012

AFTER CELEBRATING HIS WEDDING ON THE EAST AND WEST COASTS, St. Louis native Colin Mulligan brought the festivities to the Midwest May 4, when he and his bride, Masha D’yans, hosted a reception in a downtown loft. Colin, a Burroughs alum who taught at St. Louis Priory for four years, is now an actor and model in New York City. He’s been featured in Gillette ads and magazines such as Every Day with Rachael Ray and Man of the World. Masha, who was born in Russia, is an artist who illustrates greeting cards and children’s books and designs T-shirts. The couple met at a flamenco-themed party. “I was expecting Mediterranean girls with flowers in their hair, and I saw Masha,” Colin says. While dating, they made a documentary short in Spain about flamenco music. Colin proposed the day after his birthday while the couple was on vacation in Costa Rica. “We took a very long drive up to a resort,” he says. “I don’t know what came over me; I never thought I would get married until I met Masha.” Family members traveled to New York for their city hall wedding Dec. 12. “We had a crazy New York day,” Colin says. “Our mutual friend is a fashion photographer and he opened his studio to us, so we have great family portraits and wedding portraits. Our friend, a Ralph Lauren model, took us to dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant, then we went to a bar in the East Village and danced till dawn.” Soon after, Colin and Masha headed to Joshua Tree, Calif., where they were planning to hold a sunset ceremony. But they never quite made it to the vows. “It was really just a party,” Colin explains. His mother convinced them to host a reception in St. Louis. “As fun as the parties in L.A. and New York were, they didn’t include a lot of family, and we found out that Masha’s Russian relatives could make it,” Colin says. Family and friends mingled, snacked and danced to live music.

One treatment is usually all that’s needed. Results develop over a three-to-six month period and last one to two years before a touch-up is needed. Ultherapy doesn’t replace plastic surgery, but it can postpone a facelift in many patients. The procedure uses a beam of ultrasound that bypasses the skin’s surface, targeting the same deep tissues we surgically correct in a face-lift. Ultherapy uses heat energy to create thousands of little injury points. The body responds by creating new collagen and elastin, which lifts and tightens loose skin. Elastin is a protein that keeps skin flexible. Anyone with minimal skin laxity can be treated with ultherapy, regardless of age. We’ve even treated several people in their 70s with excellent results. Patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity and mild to moderate skin volume are the best candidates. Because treatment is focused, ultherapy may be used on just the forehead, the face or the neck, and costs substantially less than a traditional face- and neck-lift.

>> dr. mary grimm, ASSOCIATES IN WOMEN’S HEALTHCARE

Some therapies only tighten skin. Ultherapy tightens and lifts it, hoisting loose skin on the brow, neck and under the chin with minimal discomfort and no down time. People can return to normal activities right away. Patients who undergo ultherapy receive a little bit of sedation—ibuprofen and tramadol (a pain reliever)—beforehand. They are awake during the procedure and lie on a comfortable bed. After gel is applied to their face, we place a small ultrasound transducer on their skin to project an image of the underlying tissues and structures on a monitor. This allows us to avoid bone, nerves and blood vessels. Transducers also deliver treatment at three different levels below the skin. More than one transducer may be used. Treatment lasts 15 to 90 minutes.

The newest noninvasive procedure we have is the Venus Freeze, which uses radiofrequency waves and magnets. It provides some skin tightening, but isn’t meant for someone who needs to lose 3 to 5 inches. Usually eight to 10 treatments are needed. Unlike other devices that give good results but are uncomfortable, the Venus Freeze is very relaxing, almost like a warm massage. In a review on Realself.com, Venus Freeze received a 100 percent satisfaction rate from the people who had the procedure and reviewed it online. I’ll often recommend it to patients who want tighter skin without undergoing an invasive procedure. We use Venus Freeze to tighten necks and lift the face as well, work on the arms, abdomen and knees and as a follow-up to the Tickle Lipo procedure.

>> dr. thomas wright, MEDICAL DIRECTOR, ST. LOUIS LASER LIPOSUCTION CENTER Dermapen is a micro-needling technique used to treat skin problems, including fine lines and wrinkles on the face, and scars anywhere on the body. It’s also used on stretch marks. The device looks like a writing pen with a retractable, vibrating head embedded with 11 micro needles. Needle depth can be adjusted from .25 to 2.5 millimeters. The procedure causes tiny punctures on the skin with a rapid, stamp-like motion. These injuries stimulate collagen growth and rejuvenate skin. Unlike manual dermal rollers with stationary needles that pierce the skin, Dermapen causes no or very little discomfort. However, patients with deep scars may need a topical anesthetic. Dermapen produces results similar to a fractionated laser like Fraxel but costs markedly less. Typically three to five treatments are necessary. Another new tool we have is Accent, a near infrared laser that tones and tightens skin. It heats the deep dermis, causing it to contract, and stimulates collagen re-growth. It’s used to treat skin laxity and stretch marks and is very good for crepey, wrinkly skin. It’s effective and safe.

“Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) is the most popular light treatment performed in the United States today,” says DR. EVA HURST, AN ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF DERMATOLOGY AT WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE. When done by someone experienced, it’s safe and extremely effective for age spots, sun-damaged skin, freckles, melasma, spider veins, blood vessels and even rosacea. “There’s little downtime involved,” she adds. IPL is not a laser, but works a lot like one. “A laser delivers one specific wavelength of light, whereas IPL uses high-intensity fluorescent light technology to deliver several hundred wavelengths at the same time,” Hurst explains. “Consequently, you can target both pigment and redness at the same time. A laser can’t do that.” IPL therapy done in a physician’s office is stronger than treatments provided by beauty spas, and fewer sessions are needed. “We start off at a higher setting and apply a topical anesthetic cream, which makes the treatment more comfortable,” Hurst says. IPLs can also be used for hair removal. But patients who purchase IPL units for home use need to be cautious. “IPLs deliver high-intensity heat,” Hurst says. “You can definitely get burned and some burns could lead to scarring.”

Most improvements in medicine are not quantum leaps, but incremental steps, such as the MiXto laser. In the 1980s, continuous wave CO2 lasers resurfaced 100 percent of the treated area and did an amazing job on wrinkles and brown spots. But they were too hot and resulted in skin bleaching and a waxy appearance. In the late 1990s, lasers delivered energy in a gentler, ultra-pulse mode. They covered 100 percent of the treatment area and caused less white, waxy pigmentation. Fractionated lasers were introduced in the last decade. They treat 20 to 40 percent of the skin surface through a microscopic grid, leaving 60 to 80 percent of the skin untouched. Fractional lasers distribute heat more evenly and do a good job on brown spots but were underwhelming for wrinkles. The MiXto CO2 fractional laser is unique. Its makers went back to the old, really hot continuous laser and fractionated it to aggressively treat smaller surface areas. Heat from treated areas radiates to unlasered areas, activating heat shock proteins, which switch to repair mode, resulting in new collagen and elastin, a fibrous protein. Skin looks younger and healthier, with tremendous wrinkle improvement. Healing is easy and pigmentation is normal.

When we talk about facial beauty, what we really mean is the face, chin and neck. And if you look at a timeline over many years, you’ll see that there has been new facial technology but, more importantly, there have been refinements, updates and developments in the ways we use existing tools. Take lasers. Some are now second- or third-generation models. Some have broader applications. Some are combined for better cosmetic results, such as Pearl and Pearl fractional lasers. We do a first pass with the Pearl laser, which ‘sandblasts’ the top part of the skin with heat to smooth texture and eliminate discoloration. Fine wrinkling around the eyes and mouth is treated with the Pearl Fractional laser. By combining these lasers, treatment can be very gentle, very aggressive — or anything in between. Necks can be challenging to treat. If you have droopy, saggy skin, you need a face-lift. But if you don’t, there are multiple things that can be done that are less invasive. Botox, for example, can be used to soften and flatten vertical bands in the neck that become more prominent with aging.

fungal toenails // The HyperBlue diode laser is an FDA-cleared device to treat fungal nails (onychomycosis). “It’s quick, effective, painless and has no side effects or downtime,” says DR. JOHN HOLTZMAN, A PODIATRIST AT MISSOURI FOOT AND ANKLE. The new laser can treat mild, moderate or severe infections. Patients usually need three treatments, one per month. It can take only minutes, depending upon the number of toes treated. “Bigger toes get more heat,” Holtzman says. “We go back and forth over the nail bed until we have delivered the correct, pre-set amount of heat.” Patients will see a new, clear nail within nine months. “However, onychomycosis can recur and is contagious,” he adds. “The nails are next to each other; the toes are in the same shoe.” He often prescribes a topical medication to decrease the risk of re-infection after treatment. This development is a welcome alternative to the former course of treatment: oral medication. “Many primary care doctors don’t want their patients to take oral medication for this particular issue because it can increase your liver enzymes, which makes your liver work harder.”

founder of vbeauté

In her early 30s, Julie Macklowe, a high-powered hedge fund manager, New York

socialite, founding board member of New York Fashion Week and Vogue’s 2008 ‘It Girl,’ decided to switch careers to start her own beauty line, vbeauté. The ‘v’ stands for victory over time, provided by the products’ anti-aging botanicals. Vbeauté blossomed out of a 2010 run-in with the TSA, when Macklowe’s toiletries were confiscated on her way to France. “I wanted a travel solution because I broke out in hives when I bought other products,” she says. “I found that some of the better products were in cheaper packaging, so I wanted to mix the idea of an effective skincare line with beautiful packaging.” After three years of fine-tuning, which included partnering with Geneva-based CRB High Performance Lab, her brand launched in December 2011 at Bergdorf Goodman. As of this summer it is available to a wider audience via an exclusive partnership with Soft Surroundings. Priced at $53 and under, vbeauté features the same high-quality products and beautiful packaging as many luxury skincare lines, according to Macklowe. “We want women to feel finally that they’re not getting taken advantage of. I feel strongly about that, having grown up in Arizona with not a lot of money; I wanted to create a skincare line even my mother could afford.” Vbeauté taps into the botanical power of the Swiss Alpine rose stem cell, Macklowe explains, which is known for its anti-aging properties. “I worked with the best labs to create the best skincare the Swiss made, with the latest in skincare technology,” she PHOTO BY BEN FINK SHAPIRO says. Vbeauté’ products are also vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free and nut-free and come in elegant purple jars and travel-size tubes that fit into a sleek, travel-friendly case called the ‘It Kit.’ The line will debut in St. Louis July 26 at Soft Surroundings on The Boulevard. Macklowe will attend the launch party, taking place from 2 to 7 p.m., where she will treat event-goers to 15-minute skin consultations.

*For temporary increase of clear nail in patients with onychomycosis

routine

I use only vbeauté products. I cleanse each morning with Evidence Eraser, a foaming cleanser, and twice a week I’ll use rub-off exfoliator. I use a pump of Lite Up, a brightening treatment, and Undercover Agent, an anti-wrinkle serum. I mix them before applying to my face, neck and chest. I also do the same with Buying Time, an everyday face cream. I then apply eye cream above my eye area and Day Job, our sun protection cream. I don’t wear foundation during the day—only eye makeup. Along with Day Job, I might apply a tinted moisturizer but generally I’ll just dab a little concealer if it’s needed. I then put on eye shadow and fun eyeliner. In the summer, I tend to use waterproof mascara. I’ll finish up with something for the lips, such as our anti-age tinting lip gloss.

PARENT TRAP WHY COLLEGE STUDENTS SUFFER ] by dr. tim jordan THE MISTAKES WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE in our youth, we will make later on; with much greater cost and less benefit. ~ Author Unknown I love that quote, and I wish more parents would take it to heart. Some disturbing data from an article in Maclean’s magazine in Canada should give all parents reason for concern. The article cites a 2011 survey of students at the University of Alberta. They found the following: 51 percent felt things were hopeless; 87 percent felt overwhelmed by all they had to do; 87 percent felt exhausted; 62 percent felt very lonely; 66 percent felt very sad; 52 percent felt overwhelming anxiety; and 57 percent felt more-than-average stress. Universities in the U.S. also have been reporting a rapidly increasing number of college students requiring mental health services, primarily for stress, depression and anxiety. Why? There are many reasons. I saw a parent recently who told me her husband has “never wanted his children to feel any discomfort.” He is not alone. Too many parents have not allowed their children to learn good coping skills, which come by working through adversity. If every time a kid starts to falter, Mom and Dad are there to rescue and lift him or her up, they will never learn how to manage the normal ups and downs of life. Then

when they do experience moving away to college and all it entails, they wilt under the pressures. Perfectionism has also been the name of the game for most kids since they were toddlers. They have been adulated, put up on pedestals, pushed and prodded to get straight As and win championships. They end up in the top 10 percent of their high school class, but become dumbfounded when they have to compete with a whole classroom of top 10 percenters in college. Only 10 percent of the top 10 percent will keep that coveted spot in college, so they no longer feel special or coddled. This is tough to swallow after a lifetime of being called No. 1. College students tell me they still feel pressure from their parents about grades and jobs. Many parents won’t allow them to work at college or even in the summers, because they want them to take classes in the summer to get an edge. Why are parents still running the ship? Why can’t they let their young adult children grow up and fend for themselves? Young adults need to make their own mistakes in their own time and learn their own lessons from them. It’s about OWNERSHIP. For when they succeed, they also own the victory dance as well. And that is where they will find their motivation and passion.

Seafood Paella, Roasted Pork Chop, Chocolate Souffle, Rigatoni

THIS CHESTERFIELD RESTAURANT was an instant hit when it opened in 1999. It has funky decor that is posh in a laidback way: chunky limestone walls and pillars, heavy beamed ceilings, a commanding brick wood-fired oven, mosaic tile floors and the warm Tuscan glow of golds, browns and rusts. And in that still appealing environment, it serves a very attractive menu of European dishes like cioppino, gnocchi, paella and steak. The French, Spanish and Italian influences are discernible, and they are paired with well-conceived sides and innovative little touches. Like the Bistro Steak ($22), which has two sauces, béarnaise and veal demi glace, and deep-fried oyster mushrooms sprinkled all over the plate. The side of yummy truffle fries was a nice touch, too, with their earthy flavor and plenty of salt. The don’t-miss dish, though, was Seafood Paella

($25), which exuded an intense flavor of seafood stock. It was atypical for this Spanish classic, in that there was no sausage or chicken, only very good seafood, including mussels, clams, scallops, fish and shrimp. Also unusual was its rice-to-seafood ratio: it was not primarily a rice dish, but rather all about the seafood. Another excellent meal came in the form of the Roasted Pork Chop ($23), which also had an unusual presentation. The thick, meaty chop came as thick strips sitting on a sweet, sticky apple-bourbon glaze made with veal stock and apple juice. The meat had been appealingly browned, yet retained the juicy and delicate flavor this cut offers when it’s prepared well. A heaping mound of greens and gnocchi came alongside, the greens sautéed with plump red onion slices and Missouri pecans.

willing to adapt dishes to suit your taste.

Ya Ya’s makes a point of using local foods, when possible, and the Market Salad ($9) was a good example, with its fresh baby greens tossed with cucumbers, tomatoes and soft goat cheese in a delicious citrus vinaigrette detectably flavored by orange. Another starter, Crab Cakes ($14) was tasty, its two small patties having good flavor from sweet and fresh crabmeat, although those annoying red pepper flakes were in there, distracting from all that crab goodness. A small mound of quinoa sat nearby, and it was very well done in a flavorful butter-lemon sauce. There is a small pasta selection, and I’m really glad we sampled it. Our Rigatoni ($15) with oyster and shiitake mushrooms was memorable. It was tossed with soft goat cheese that was melted into a complex creamy coating by the warm noodles, adding its pungency to the already rich truffle oil nage (cream bath).

My wife and I go to Paul Manno’s, where every table gets greeted by the owner.

FRONT] &CENTER

by bob wilcox THE HEAT OF SUMMER DOESN’T SLOW either the makers of St. Louis theater or its consumers. We are, after all, the city that fills a massive Muny theater every night to watch outdoor musicals! Tropical heat was appropriate for The Muny’s recent production of South Pacific, one of the best productions of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic I’ve seen. I especially enjoyed — and admired — the work of Laura Michelle Kelly as Navy nurse Nellie Forbush. Kelly, who is English and an Olivier winner in London, had played the very Victorian English governess in The King and I at the Muny last summer. Next up at the Muny: Mary Poppins. (It was for the original London production of this musical that Kelly won her Olivier!) The Muny promises Mary Poppins will fly over the audience, but what will they do for the show-stopper performed by Bert the chimney sweep? In the original staging and in the versions that played Broadway, Bert walks up the side of the proscenium arch, across the top of it—upside down—and down the other side. The Muny has no proscenium arch. It does have that light bridge across the front of the stage... The Muny season closes Aug. 11 with West Side Story, one of the all-time great musicals. They’ve done extremely fine productions of it in the past, so let’s hope for a reprise. Stages St. Louis, in comfortably air-conditioned Robert Reim Theatre at the Kirkwood Community Center, is in the midst of Legally Blonde, The Musical, a contemporary fairy tale about a young woman who overcomes ‘the handicap’ of beauty (and air-headedness) to lead her class at Harvard Law School and show up the man who dumped her. The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University did a delightful production of this piece in the spring. The very talented student who played the lead there, Becca Andrews, is also in the cast at Stages, though in a supporting role. If you want weightier musical theater, Union Avenue Opera brings us the second part of Wagner’s Ring Cycle, Die Walküre, in August. They’re using a reduced version of the opera, both in length and in orchestration. But I found much to admire and enjoy last year in their production of the first part, Das Rheingold. And how often do we get a chance to see Wagner’s Ring, reduced or not? Nor is the great master of the English language stage, William Shakespeare, being ignored at St. Louis Shakespeare this summer. And they offer works rarely seen in St. Louis or anywhere. Timon of Athens, a dark piece about a rich man who entertains lavishly but finds his friends disappearing when he runs out of money, is finishing its run. It will be followed next month by the even rarer appearance of Two Noble Kinsmen. We’re not even sure how much of this one Shakespeare had a hand in writing. But Donna Northcott and her colleagues at St. Louis Shakespeare are determined to work their way through the whole canon, and they’re getting there. Thanks to them, we can one day claim to have seen them all.

Grill masters from all over the country are firing up their pits and creating countless barbecue styles. They’re using slabs of ribs, sausage patties or pulled pork and marinating them in different types of rubs—from sweet to spicy—and finishing them with barbecue sauces just as varied. The ingredients and flavor profiles are unlimited, so how can we match wine to all these? Don’t panic, let’s start one by one. The basic theory of wine pairing is to match the food and wine in intensity and flavor. Reds, in general, are going to work better with barbecue than whites. Grilled steaks and smoked brisket, for example, are a perfect match with cabernet sauvignon. The full-body, tannins and peppery characteristics complement the smoky grill flavors. Sausages are ideally partnered with zinfandels. ‘Juicy’ and ‘spicy’ are the magical words in this combination. Pulled pork is laden with flavor and fat, and finds its partner in Germany. My recommendation is an off-dry Riesling. The high acidity cuts through the high fat component, and the sweetness of the wine suits the flavor profile of the pork. The low alcohol content of the Riesling is also nice. Grilled fish and vegetables are best paired with light white wines. Try a vermentino or pinot grigio from Italy, lightly oaked chardonnays from Sonoma, or sauvignon blancs from New Zealand. My personal preferred wine pairing with barbecue is rose wine. The fruity and crisp characteristics match almost any kind of barbecue type and style. Try throwing in a few ice cubes from time to time. Not a bad combination! Roses from Provence are great to drink, but so are those from Missouri wineries. Chandler Hill and Chaumette produce beautiful roses from the chambourcin grape. Never heard of it? Try it for your next barbecue!

into the world of ultra-orthodox Jewry. Set in Tel Aviv, it is about the internal conflicts an 18-year-old girl (Shira) faces in weighing her marriage options. Carefree and looking forward to a betrothal being arranged by her parents, everything changes when her sister suddenly dies in childbirth. Now she is presented with the possibility of marrying her sister’s widower to prevent him from leaving Tel Aviv with her parents’ only grandson. Unfortunately, it is a painfully slow film that makes it too hard for the viewer to figure out what Shira is feeling and thinking, especially at the end. While it is apparent that she eventually makes her decision for the right reasons, she is sobbing and shaking—and we have no idea why. SHOULD YOU SEE IT? Yes.

City with their six kids when they decided they could use more space. When they purchased 52 Briarcliff, it wasn’t their dream home but they knew it could be, with a little work. Plus, the property was a roomy 1.5 acres and had a creek in the back, which the family liked. “It was small at that time, but with plenty of expansion potential,” says Marsha Frank. After a year of rehabbing, the house grew to five full baths, one half bath and six bedrooms—a master on the first floor and five bedrooms upstairs. Renovations included curving the stairs so the entry and first floor are more open and extending the back of the house by adding a large storage area. In total, the Franks doubled the home’s size to 9,000 square feet. “We added on just about everywhere you could,” says Frank. The most unique aspect of the house is the kitchen, which Frank describes as “awesome.” And awesome might just be the perfect word: it not only has a wood-burning pizza oven but also features three sinks, multiple ovens and a large hand-crafted mahogany island. With six kids and a penchant for entertaining,

the family needed a kitchen that would accommodate a larger crowd. “We wanted a house that worked with our lifestyle, so the kitchen had to be totally workable because everyone in my family cooks,” says Frank. The house may have been less than ideal when they moved in, but the Franks were attracted to the area and the size of the property. “We have a lot of mature trees and a big, open backyard,” says Frank. “The kids have plenty of room to run around and play, and you can sit in the backyard and enjoy nature, but you’re only 10 minutes away from anything.” The surrounding grounds also feature fruit-bearing apple and cherry trees and a deck with an endless pool. Although the Franks are currently living in Miami Beach and loving it, they miss their home in Briarcliff. “We had a lot of fun with the house and made it into a home you can walk into and feel comfortable,” says Frank. “We always said we were going to retire to Miami Beach, and we decided it was time to go now. If we could find a way to move the house here, it would be perfect.”

HOMEWORK] DEAR HOMEWORK,

Our home is more than 115 years old. The landscaping in front has been removed and the lines of the house are sharp. We would like to make our home more welcoming and also improve the water run-off to steer it away from the foundation. The house faces north, with a curved sidewalk from the circle drive at left to the front steps. We would appreciate your suggestions. ———CLEAN SLATE WITHOUT CLEAR DIRECTION AFTER

DEAR CLEAN SLATE,

As far as re-landscaping goes, I suggest the following: since the architecture is symmetrical, your landscaping should be as well. Considering our six months of winter, evergreens should figure prominently in your design. Allow mature plantings to hide only that which needs to be hidden. Plant a balance of vertical and horizontal shapes. Plan for all the plants to grow together, connected to present a unified composition. Beyond landscaping, I would point out that originally, your house probably looked quite different from what we see today. I have drawn it to suggest some of the Queen Anne/shingle style detailing that has been removed and replaced with an unconvincing wash of weak Colonial details. I do this because I think that many people would find the original character more welcoming and appealing. That said, I think your house has a handsome and honest charm that only needs some supporting landscape additions to really shine through. Hope this clarifies your direction, ———HOMEWORK

A sofa or chair can be much more than a place to sit. It can be a work of art, an expression of personal style or a design focal point. Of course, furniture needs to be functional, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. We checked in with some top local furniture retailers and designers on the latest trends: PHOTO BY BILL BARRETT

PHOTO COURTESY OF ROCKET CENTURY

The clean lines and minimalist style of mid-century modern furniture is making a comeback. “Contemporary designers have embraced the mid-century modern aesthetic as a way to show great modern simplicity in a timeless way,” says Kristina Starr, owner of Rocket Century fine mid-century furnishings. “Choosing well-designed key vintage pieces is a way to get both great structural quality and incredible design.”

MID-CENTURY MINIMALISM

ASIAN INFLUENCE

Many popular furniture makers are designing collections with an Asian influence, incorporating the simple, modern lines and rich woods often found in Japanese furniture, as well as the bamboo look and more ornate decorative elements of Chinoiserie. A three-drawer Berkeley Brickfront chest with ring pulls from Bungalow 5 shows the Japanese influence paired with a bamboo-look Chloe Mirror.

BY AMY BURGER

BUILT-IN STORAGE

Much of today’s versatile furniture does double-duty with hidden storage, such as a stylish ottoman from Expressions that exemplifies form and function at their best. The interior is cedar-lined, making it perfect for storing anything from clothes and blankets to toys and books.

PHOTO COURTESY OF EXPRESSIONS FURNITURE

HANDCRAFTED

For furniture that is truly a work of art, incorporate handcrafted pieces, like a red oak dining table with custom bent-steel base made by local furniture designer and woodworker David Stine for St. Louis chef/restaurateur Gerard Craft. “Gerard knew what he wanted—local, sustainably harvested wood for his three main dining tables—and he loved the idea of having a local woodworker make them,” Stine says.

SMALL-SCALE

The large, overstuffed furniture that was popular a decade ago is being replaced by smaller-scale furniture that fits better in cozier spaces and doesn’t overpower a room. The scaled-down furnishings in an eclectically designed space by Edwin Pepper Interiors are accented with contrasting pillows and tasteful accessories. Custom draperies add warmth and design to this intimate setting.

OPEN HOUSE: SUNDAY | 2-4 PM

JULY 28

Beautifully updated and appointed Higginbothambuilt custom home, situated on a level acre of lavishly landscaped grounds at the end of cul-de-sac. It is located in Muirfield subdivision that stretches along the northeast side of The Bellerive Country Club.

THAT’S A WRAP

Furnishings ‘wrapped’ in leather, grass cloth and other natural materials are an unexpected way to inject your room with texture and detail, as in this stool/side table from Savvy Surroundings Style constructed of iron and hand-wrapped with rope. PHOTO COURTESY OF SAVVY SURROUNDINGS STYLE

REPURPOSED PIECES

Custom furniture incorporating repurposed objects provides a one-of-a-kind look, as well as a conversation piece. Local architect and furniture designer Philip Durham paired an old joist found in his office building during renovation with Douglas Fir and tempered glass to make a custom coffee table. “The concept was to use this example of 1800s’ craftsmanship and marry it with modern woodworking to create a modern piece imbued with the history of the building,” he says.

GEOMETRICS

When it comes to upholstery, “Geometric patterns and stripes allow the average person to incorporate pattern into room design without being too overbearing,” says Mary Beth Leritz, manager of LuLu Belles Fabrics. “Most geometric designs and stripes today consist of two to three colors, with enough emphasis to make a subtle but bold statement.”

• 5 bedrooms/5 baths • Three-car garage • Main floor laundry • Exquisite lighting fixtures • Extensive millwork • Two-story foyer with circular staircase • Remodeled gourmet kitchen with granite counters, center island and stainless steel appliances • Living room opens to family room with full paneling, built-in bookcases, wet bar and fireplace • Main floor master suite with sitting area that opens to terrace • Luxury bath, with whirlpool tub, bidet and sauna • Finished walk-out lower level with custom wet bar, rec rooms, full bath, fireplace and kitchen • 50' x 35' heated pool with pebble sheen surface and Gazebo • Gardens, terraced patios and exterior lighting system • Central vac, security, intercom and sprinkler systems
