from the editor's desk One thing Town&Style is not, is political. We try to remain on neutral ground when it comes to controversy. Apparently, we have not always been successful. An irritated reader called last week challenging us to be as supportive of president-elect Donald Trump’s victory as she recalled us being during the 2012 election results. I don’t remember commenting about that earlier election, but one’s leanings have a way of showing up indirectly, apparently. And now that my preferred candidate did not win, I’m going to acknowledge this reader, and others, by repeating the wise words of Mark Shields when he addressed the Women’s Democratic Forum of Greater St. Louis. He advised whichever side loses to “display acts of grace.” I will also abide by John McCain’s words upon conceding to President Obama: An hour ago he was my opponent, now he’s my president. Embracing the new reality is not only the gracious thing to do, it’s the only thing to do if people want to protect the democratic process. It’s so easy to take that particular jewel for granted. Now that it’s being challenged in the most serious way since the ’60s, our commitment is being tested too. Can we accept the legal will of the people when that will is so different from our own? The answer has to be yes, because something much more important is at stake than who leads the country, or how he does it. Even in cases where we don’t respect the man, we must respect the office. Just like Americans have been doing for nearly two and a half centuries.

by megan ortiz THE 10 WARNING SIGNS OF ALZHEIMER’S ARE DISPLAYED PROMINENTLY ON THE

Alzheimer’s Association website. They are clear. They are descriptive. They plead with people to seek a doctor if any sign is recognized in a loved one. “Early and appropriate treatment means they may be able to stay home an extra two years before moving into a nursing home, if that is their choice,” says Stephanie Rohlfs-Young, vice president of programs for the St. Louis chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. The Alzheimer’s Association wants to help, but the challenge is that half the people who have the disease do not get a diagnosis, Rohlfs-Young says. Primary care physicians may tell a person they have dementia, but the patients don’t always find out what type. Dementia is a broad term that describes cognitive loss, and Alzheimer’s is one type of dementia. “Treatments vary depending on the type of dementia,” she says. The Alzheimer’s Association continues to grow its programs designed for those in the early stages of the disease. Its classes and support groups center around education and living with the symptoms. “We try to make it clear you still have a lot of life ahead of you,” Rohlfs-Young says. “You just need to make modest adjustments. A diagnosis does not mean you have to shift what you do radically.” With an early diagnosis, the association is able to enhance life for those diagnosed and their caregivers through support groups and education. The local chapter has partnered with other organizations to provide more activities, like an art therapy program at Maryville University called ‘Opening Minds Through Art.’ “They do a little bit of everything from mixed media to collages and acrylic painting,” Rohlfs-Young says. “It’s fascinating to see people with no art background tap into a creative side they didn’t even know they had.” Another Alzheimer’s Association program is called Meet Up, and it offers a platform for people to get together about every three weeks to participate in a day trip, like visiting a museum. Let’s Talk also is offered every other Saturday to connect people via phone to someone else dealing with similar symptoms and troubles. “Alzheimer’s is very isolating for families,” Rohlfs-Young says. “People’s worlds get smaller and smaller. In my own family, my grandmother took part in the Let’s Talk program when she was diagnosed. She lived in a small, rural town and knew no one who could relate to her. It helped a lot when she started talking to her peer in the program because they could understand and relate to each other.” The programs are intended for those still in the early stages of Alzheimer’s who can maintain conversations and handle their own personal care. “Naturally as the disease progresses, they enjoy groups less,” Rohlfs-Young says. “It can be overwhelming and scary, and that is when families start opting out of the programs.” Due to the nature of Alzheimer’s patients, class sizes are kept small, which limits those who can sign up. The association hopes expansion is on the horizon. “We need volunteers for the programs—anyone from educators to people who can run the support groups,” Rohlfs-Young says. “It takes so much help to keep these programs thriving.”

THE[IN]SIDER

PATTY d e h s a e unl BY PATTY HANNUM

PEOPLE USE A VARIETY OF WORDS to describe

me: blunt, funny, liberal, sarcastic. Graceful is not one of them. I am clumsy, incapable of walking and chewing gum at the same time. I’ve hidden it well throughout the years, but people who know me have witnessed the damage I’ve done to myself. Whether it is falling while stepping off an escalator, hitting my shoulder on a door frame that has been in the same place for 14 years, totally missing the chair behind my desk or running my bike into a tree, it has and does happen. I could lie and say it’s infrequent, but I have ‘mishaps’ daily and at least one major accident annually. Knowing my hypochondriac tendencies, you might assume my mind went directly to suspicions of a neurological disorder, but this is one time I didn’t need to let my imagination run wild. The diagnosis was clear: I am a career klutz. It’s like having freckles, part of my DNA. So, this September when I tripped and fell over my own two feet, ripping my very expensive blue jeans (in a flattering smaller size), I just assumed it was karma telling me not to spend so much money on clothing and to pay attention on uneven sidewalks. Most of the time, the embarrassment of these little events overshadows any real injury. Not this time. I actually hurt myself. You would assume with my love of everything medical, I would have seen a doctor pronto to fix what ailed me. Nah, not my style. Why would I use a medical professional when I actually need them? I’d much rather use them for something like Dengue Fever, even though I haven’t traveled outside the United States in ages. So, I continued as if nothing had happened, even though every time I tried to take a deep breath, I struggled, and I couldn’t even lift my arms above my head. I was a very disagreeable person until my husband (I should add long-suffering) handed me the phone and said, “Call the doctor, I am taking you to see her.” A couple of dislocated ribs and a referral to an orthopedist later, it was clear I was not going to just bounce back from this injury. Wishing it away wasn’t going to work, either. (Adding insult to injury, I didn’t have a ‘better story’ than tripping in the middle of the day on a Kirkwood sidewalk. Lame.) After an MRI and appointment with the orthopedist determined I needed surgery to fix the damage to my shoulder, I felt relief. Finally there was an end in sight for the pain—the physical pain, anyway. That was until I actually had the surgery and felt real pain. To give you an idea of what that felt like, well, like this: #$&*#!! So is there anything happy in this column? Absolutely! I have the funniest anecdotes to share with you in the future about surgery and rehab, including my doctor, Doogie Howser. And more important, I had plenty of time to come up with a better injury story: I hurt my shoulder while skiing in Gstaad. Haven’t been? You really must go. It is beautiful this time of year.

[ TALKOF THETOWNS ] by bill beggs jr. Here-enberg, There-enberg, Wehrenberg … as some patrons say when the house promo for our favorite hometown movie theater chain comes onscreen before the previews start. Hundreds of thousands of us have sat through, many even enjoyed, that prelude to feature films in and around the StL over the years. A few even stage whisper along with ‘Wehrenberg’ as it moves softly from speaker to speaker in the auditorium, no doubt showing off the impressive sound separation. Let’s hope that Marcus Theatres of Milwaukee keeps some of that Lou-like flava’ when they officially take over the chain, probably sometime next month. It would be OK, too, if they wanted to add some of their own perks, like ‘DreamLounger’ reclining seats (the better to miss, uh enjoy, the show) and in-house restaurants.

CLAYTON

DES PERES

Wehrenberg’s corporate offices are at 12800 Manchester Road, which most of us probably have known only as the location of the Des Peres 14 Ciné. In the age of the movie multiplex, there are locales like Ronnie’s 20 in South County (Concord Village), where the company, until sometime mid-20th century, operated a drive-in popular throughout the metro. Before the Marcus deal, Wehrenberg was the oldest and largest family-owned movie theater chain in America. Lifelong or longtime residents may remember The Airdome, the Lou’s first open-air venue, basically a drive-in without cars. People sat on folding chairs, and a canvas tarp was stretched above patrons in the winter, keeping them warm with pot-bellied stoves! Back to Ronnie’s, which is now all indoors with unobtrusive heating and cooling systems. Marcus is buying the entire shopping plaza along with the namesake theater. The company operates upward of 850 screens in more than a dozen states; Wehrenberg now has 15 theater locations in Missouri (nine in the metro), Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota. Oh well, I wish they could keep the big-screen promo as is; Marcus just doesn’t roll off the tongue as nicely.

The St. Louis Blues, through thick and thin, have been not only stalwarts in a sometimes-changing local sports scene (remember the Browns? No? How about the Rams? Sorry; if that’s a name that will never again cross your lips, we fully understand.) The Blues are more popular than even the Redbirds with some St. Louisans. (Must be from getting hit in the head a lot.) Anyhow, our hockey team now is being honored as a ‘pillar’ of the community. Now who, other than Chicago Blackhawks fans, could argue with that? The Clayton Chamber of Commerce has chosen the Blues to receive its 2016 Pillar in the Community award, presented by Centene Corp. Ceremonies will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Dec. 7. Now celebrating its 50th year, the team is being recognized for its commitment to St. Louis. Established in 1967, the Blues are a beloved NHL franchise— witness Blues gear that the most rabid fans wear yearround. In 2012, Tom Stillman, chairman of the team, bought the Blues, as well as the Scottrade Center lease and a substantial interest in Peabody Opera House. The all-local ownership group is dedicated to maintaining the Blues as one of professional sports’ most stable and sustainable franchises. And they intend to keep them right here, Stanley Cup or no. Pillars of the past, since 2001, include Joe Edwards, Mark Wrighton, Peter Raven, Sanford N. McDonnell and I.E. Millstone.

Mosby Building Arts, based in Kirkwood, is again holding its ‘Stuff the Truck’ toy drive at its Kirkwood headquarters to benefit two children’s charities: Friends of Kids with Cancer and Our Little Haven. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10, there will be food trucks outside 645 Leffingwell Ave., hot coffee and visits with the jolly ol’ elf himself. Two radio stations (one AM, one FM) will be hosting live remotes at the event, which last year collected thousands of toys to bring smiles to these kids in dire need. How many toys was it, exactly? Like we said, thousands; a truckload. Volunteers will load the truck that afternoon, and since Santa will already be there, it’s obvious to this reporter that they will somehow be transferred to a magic sleigh for transport to the North Pole. Of course, that’s all behind the scenes, and very mysterious. It probably involves logistics, in a bigly way. Strike up the band … that is, cue the orchestra. St. Louis Symphony Orchestra reports that it has celebrated a remarkable year, both financially and artistically. SLSO reported a balanced cash operating budget for the first time this century. Significant increases both in attendance and ticket revenue during its 2015/16 season have been reported. Overall ticket revenue increased by nearly

4 percent, to $6.87 million. ‘Live at Powell Hall’ concert attendance and sales reached the highest numbers since the inception of the series in 2010. And, counter to the experience of many American orchestras, classical audiences and sales in St. Louis increased for the second consecutive year. The Symphony also reported solid growth in philanthropic support. This was its bestever annual campaign, with a total of $7.68 million from 5,394 donors—30 percent of whom were new. SLSO also reports impressive results in building the St. Louis Symphony’s Endowment Trust. Significant contributions have been received over the past three years as part of ongoing efforts to secure endowment funding commensurate with the orchestra’s needs. As of Aug. 31, endowment-related assets under management exceeded $200 million.

business nationwide. This company-wide effort of Boeing aims to shrink infrastructure considerably by a target date of 2020, by 4.5 million square feet. As part of the consolidation, Boeing will shuffle the deck in California and Washington state, while closing facilities in El Paso, Texas, and Newington, Virginia. The jobs moving here are professional posts, including finance and

engineering, not construction positions, so they won’t be rolling more of the most advanced jets off an assembly line here. Meanwhile, Boeing contends it will win the race to Mars by transporting the first crew of astronauts to the Red Planet. This is no idle claim, as McDonnell Douglas—which merged with Boeing in 1997—built many key spacecraft and components for NASA.

How manners can go a long way in court

Stange Law Firm, PC

When a party goes to court for a divorce or family law matter, manners can go hand-in-hand with having a successful outcome. The reality is judges can quickly come to an impression about somebody when they are in front of the judge. So, if a party is well-mannered and respectful, this can have a positive effect on the case outcome. On the flip-end, if somebody is not well mannered and disrespectful, this can have an adverse effect. “What are good manners in the courtroom?” “And what should I not say or do in the courtroom?” These are common questions that a party asks when they have a court date coming up in their case. First, “your honor,” is an expression that every party coming to a court should include in their vocabulary. When asked a question by a judge, “your honor” is one

of the most important phrases a party has to know. Many of the responses of a party will simply call for a “yes, your honor” or a “no, your honor” response. It is critical as well to only speak when spoken to or given permission to speak. For many parties, they want to speak up a lot. They want to interrupt the judge, the other attorney or their own attorney. They want to be argumentative and make their case. This is almost always a mistake. If a party wants to say something, it is almost always best said through their attorney. This is why they paid to have an attorney in the first place. To the extent it is even appropriate for them to speak, asking for permission from the court is definitely advisable in most instances. When given the opportunity to speak, it is important to seem even-keeled and level-headed in the courtroom. It is important to be respectful and not argumentative in family court. A party also has to read the body language well of a judge. If the judge looks annoyed or irritated about what is being said, it is im-

portant for a party to catch these queues and stop talking. Body language is also important as well. A lot can be said in a courtroom that can be frustrating for a party going through a divorce or family law matter. But if a party looks angry or frustrated, or if a party sighs, shrugs their shoulders or throws up their hands in response to what is said, this generally does not come off well in court. For most parties, it is better to sit stone-faced when others are speaking– no matter whether what is being said is beneficial or negative toward them. Even passing notes to an attorney, when overdone, during a trial or hearing can make an adverse impression. If you are going through a divorce, Stange Law Firm, PC can help. We have lawyers available to help you in your case. When you retain our firm, you will receive access to your case through Your Case Tracker in addition to receiving your lawyer’s personal cell phone number.

SPORTS STANDOUTS]

[ leading the way ]

by megan ortiz PHOTO COURTESY OF LADUE SOCCER

CHARLIE McINTYRE

[dual threat] HANS CHAN

The loss still stung a few days after the game ended for senior forward Hans Chan. The state’s fourthranked soccer team had been upset in the Elite Eight, ending Ladue Horton Watkins’ quest for the state title. “Honestly, it was one of the most painful nights I can remember,” Chan says. He had little time to dwell on it, though. His Scott Gallagher 98 Elite team was busy preparing for its upcoming games. And Chan had piano to practice. Despite finishing the high school season with 14 goals and 24 assists (ranking him No. 2 in the St. Louis area), Chan’s focus is hardly one-dimensional. “I’ve made a decision to major in piano, so that is my focus as I look at colleges,” says Chan, who wants to become a professor in a music department. “If I can walk on a team at college or even just play club soccer while I’m at school, it would be nice. It will be hard to walk completely away from the sport after all these years.” Chan started playing soccer in kindergarten, and piano at age 8. “Piano is a huge time commitment,” he says. “On school days, I try to practice a minimum of four to five hours.” As much as he loves piano, soccer is right up there next to it. He admits he’d be a lot more stressed if he didn’t have soccer to balance out his days. He took a break from high school soccer his junior year to focus entirely on his academy team, but returned his senior year because of the camaraderie. “I missed the team spirit and the fun of high school soccer that nothing else really brings you,” he says. While sacrifices have had to be made, Chan tries to devote ample time to both his passions. His parents have helped him with his schedule, and his club coach has made it clear he understands that piano sometimes comes first. “That helped me a lot mentally because I used to stress over missing any little activity,” Chan says. “I don’t think I could have given up either one even if someone had encouraged it.”

When Parkway Central senior Charlie McIntyre went to the state cross country meet, he was on a mission. After running about 50 miles per week and setting a school record in October, McIntyre was determined to improve on his two previous state appearances. “I knew going in that there were a lot of talented guys,” he says. “I wanted to run my best and put myself in position to finish the best I could. And I think I did that.” McIntyre finished seventh overall with a time of 15:54.31. His highest previous finish was 40th at state after using his sophomore season as a learning experience and battling through some hamstring issues at the end of his junior year. Named team captain his senior year, McIntyre tried to lead by example. “I’d go to the team dinners before the races, and I would suffer with them at practices when it got tough,” he says. “I think the team has a lot of potential and has some great things ahead.” McIntyre is already shifting gears to track season. While he runs everything from the 800 meters to the twomile race during track, his specialty is the mile. “This past track season, I was third at state in the mile and just a half second away from winning,” says McIntyre, who clocked in at 4:18.13 to take bronze. “It gives me a lot to build on this year.” With a recent official visit to Mizzou, McIntyre plans to continue running in college. He has not narrowed down his list completely, but Missouri, Houston, Butler, DePaul and Loyola are among the schools being considered. “Being in cross country and track has opened up a lot of social aspects for me,” he says. “I’ve met a lot of great people. It also teaches sportsmanship and how to persevere through ups and downs. I have learned to push through those downs.”

talk to... [ kathryn keuss ] Cor Jesu Academy golfer Kathryn Keuss capped off her senior season with a 14th-place finish at the state tournament. The three-time state qualifier won both the Missouri/ Illinois River Challenge and the District Tournament this season. She plans to continue playing in college but is not expected to choose where until closer to signing day in February.

WHEN DID YOU START PLAYING GOLF?

“I learned at age 6, but played select soccer all through grade school. I didn’t really start focusing on it until later. Then I surprised myself by reaching the state tournament my freshman year, and I fell in love with the game.”

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SENIOR SEASON?

“I felt like I played really well. I was on point and things clicked. I was a little disappointed with my outcome at state. I was fighting a little of a swing issue, and I think I was a little tired physically on the

second day because I had been preparing so much for it. I parred out the last five holes, though, and finished strong. Looking at all I accomplished, I don’t want to dwell on my last round.”

HOW DO YOU THINK GOLF COULD HELP YOU IN THE LONG RUN?

“My dad plays golf so he told me what a good skill it is in business. Lots of professions are looking for female golfers, and it gives some girls an advantage because you can do business on the course. It’s also taught me to have patience. You have to work with what you have and have a lot of mental toughness.”

COVER STORY

AIMING HIGHER THE WILSON SCHOOL TEACHERS DEBBIE WILHELMS AND LINDA NOEL IN THE LIBRARY

by alexa beattie AT THE WILSON SCHOOL, THE WORD ‘EXCELLENCE’ HAS A SPECIAL RING. The

school launched its Excellence Program 10 years ago, thanks to a generous donation from school grandparents Hal and Catherine Faught. The $2 million gift is the single largest of its kind given to an elementary school in Missouri history and supports four key areas—faculty development, programming, library and community. “Do everything with a spirit of excellence was the Faughts’ mantra, and we live by it every day,” says head of school Thad Falkner, referring to the school’s wealth of resources and its investment in teachers. Wilson, he says, spends more than most area schools on professional development. Members of the staff are encouraged to attend national and regional conferences whenever possible, and in-house professional training is commonplace. In terms of community excellence, a portion of program funding also is used for a speakers’ series of nationally renowned experts who talk to the school community as a whole about issues like parenting, character education and digital citizenship. The donation also has allowed Wilson to form unique partnerships in the wider St Louis community: Faculty and students from Washington University come on a weekly basis to work one-on-one with students; educators from the Saint Louis Zoo bring live animals for kindergarteners to study; and the zoo partners with upper grades on conservation efforts. Falkner says the funding also has taken the library to new heights. It now exceeds

industry standards and has doubled the number of books per student over what is recommended, with close to 60 per child. Continually refreshed, the collection contains the most up-to-date information, as well as new fiction and classics. And since the library receives around 1,000 new books annually, Wilson is able to make significant donations of books to other area elementary schools. “The library is the academic hub of the school,” Falkner says, “and plays a central role in so much that we do.” Another pillar of Wilson education is the Caring Community, a program for the upper grades that focuses on the social and emotional well-being of students. “Teen stress levels can be higher than adults’, and we want to prepare our students and give them strategies for a stressful world,” Falkner says. To this end, local mindfulness expert Meg Krejci teaches kids ways to manage their emotional energy through breathing and creative movement. In addition, developmental and behavioral pediatrician Dr. Tim Jordan and wife Anne visit the school several times a year to deliver a program called Strong Student, Strong World, which focuses on healthy relationships, group dynamics and maintaining self-esteem. “We know we have to help students exist in the world, to move among people of different races and backgrounds,” Falkner explains, adding that nearly 30 percent of Wilson School families have at least one parent born outside the U.S. “With this program, we are uniquely positioned to help children understand each other and collaborate across cultures,” he says.

THE FAVORITES

THE GREAT THING ABOUT DINERS is that they’re

cheap and kind of greasy; the bad thing about diners is that they’re cheap and kind of greasy. The former City Diner, just north of the Fox Theatre, has gotten a face-lift and a menu redo, but it’s still a diner, with breakfast all day, sandwiches and daily ‘blue plate’ specials. Restaurateur Brad Beracha has taken it over and refurbished the aging interior in a ’70s palette of avocado, gold and rust—a very cool interior. The menu, too, has been refurbished. There are the classics, like a patty melt and Reuben, but also some new twists like Rosemary Baked Beans and Crepe Madame. This being a diner, you can expect large quantities—sandwiches come on super-sized French bread rolls, for example. And most items also have the requisite layer of grease from the cooktop. Our starters, Fried Green Tomatoes ($6) and Mushroom Toast ($7), were unimpressive. I’d skip that category and go right for what diners are known for: sandwiches and breakfast food. The Shrimp Po’ Boy on a large baguette had some kind of ‘spicy Cajun

mayo’ melted onto one side that was pretty darn tasty. Combine that with its shredded lettuce, tomato slices and deep-fried shrimp, and it was very satisfying. I must note, though, that it was a little chintzy on the shrimp. Quantity certainly was not the problem with the Cuban ($6.50), a generous portion of pulled pork, ham, swiss cheese and pickle on a baguette. There was something called ‘Cuban sauce’ on there, too, and the whole combo was rich, meaty and satisfying (if a little fat-laced from the pork). Fatty also describes the Prime Rib Sandwich ($6), a Thursday night special, but you can cut off all the fat and still have plenty of nice meat, seasoned by horseradish sauce. Our favorite dish was the Mini Fish Tacos ($8), which were delicious in every way: the blackened tilapia was correctly spicy; the sriracha sauce was good and creamy; the tortillas were soft and chewy; the guacamole and other veggies were fresh and delicious; and cubes of pineapple added a sweet element that worked surprisingly well. Don’t pass these up.

A side salad of mixed greens ($4) came as a very nice bowlful of mixed greens, premium ones. There wasn’t much else in there, but that’s OK; the housemade ranch dressing was tasty. Another side, Rosemary Baked Beans ($3), was one of the best dishes of the night, its earthy pinto beans dotted with bits of bacon and very well flavored by fresh rosemary and a bit of heat from the chile pepper. Taking advantage of the all-day breakfast, we sampled the Double French Toast ($5), which was pretty good. Two large slabs of bread were lightly egged and dusted with powdered sugar. The Jumbo Buttermilk Pancake ($2.50) was as big as a dinner plate and while more crusty than fluffy, it was fine. Spoon Drop Biscuits-nGravy ($3.50) was a massive serving of crusty biscuits cut from a sheet (not puffy individual buns) and positively swimming in milky gravy with bits of sausage. It came with a nice easy-over egg. Overall, this place is a welcome addition to a popular entertainment area that could use more restaurants. It’s perfect for grabbing a sandwich before the show.

HAPP [HOUR

LAST MONTH THE FAMILY WENT APPLE PICKING at one

of the local orchards. We had a blast riding the tractor around the orchard and chasing each other through the gnarled fruit trees, trying to decide which apples to pick. Two hours later yielded heaps of apples, around 80 pounds of various varieties. Now the question is, what to do with all these apples? Make cider, of course! A PROUD HERITAGE The Greeks and Romans had mastered the art of fermenting the fruit long before the Roman arrival in England in 55 BCE. When the Romans got to Britain, they found the local population already involved in the fermentation of apples. Having a long tradition of cider making, the UK also boasts the highest per capita consumption of the beverage. Styles vary worldwide, ranging from bone dry to candy sweet. Cider typically ranges from 1.5 to 12 percent ABV. Sparkling and still ciders are made across all markets and vary from clear commercial ciders to unfiltered, darker varieties.

[ let us brew ] YOU’LL NEED: 1 gallon fresh-pressed raw apple cider (juice) or store bought without preservatives, pasteurized or not. Unpasteurized is a little more risky as far as outcome with wild yeasts and other pathogens. You can pasteurize the juice yourself by heating to 165 to 185 degrees for 45 minutes in a sterilized pot. Do not boil. Maintaining the heat on the lower side will preserve the subtle aromas and flavors.

»

2 one-gallon glass jugs. The apple juice you use may come in a one»gallon glass jug, which can be reused here. stopper with #6 hole (to fit in the mouth of the »jugs),A rubber 1 bubbler air lock, brewing yeast (I use champagne yeast,

saccharomyces bayanus), 1 funnel, flip-top bottles for secondary fermentation (if you want a sparkling cider), and brewing tubing. Optional: 2 pounds brown sugar or honey and spices. SANITIZE ALL BOTTLES AND EQUIPMENT AT EVERY STEP! METHOD:

If you want stronger cider or to flavor the cider with spices, »pasteurize the juice. During the end of the process, add the sugar of

choice, honey and/or spice. Adding sugar boosts the alcohol content. the juice cool and return to a sterilized glass jug. Toss in the yeast »andLet stir with a sterilized spoon. Top the bottle with rubber stopper and

insert bubbler airlock. Place in a dark area with a temperature between 65 and 75 degrees. The closer to 65 degrees, the better for maintaining flavor. After a couple days, the airlock will begin to bubble. This is the carbon »dioxide being released as a result of fermentation. Every bubble of C02

means more alcohol. Sterilize all equipment and bottles before brewing. After two weeks, fermentation will slow. At this point, the cider will be cloudy. If you want to clarify it, siphon into another sanitized glass jug leaving the spent yeast particles in the bottom. Cap the new full jug and top with airlock. Let stand for an additional month in a cool, dark location.

BOTTLING: For still cider, bottle as is. For sparkling, more steps are necessary: Boil 1 c. water and add ¾ c. honey or sugar. Pour into a sanitized glass jug and siphon the cider into the same jug. Stir with a sanitized metal spoon. Bottle. Let stand for an additional 2 to 3 weeks. The residual yeast in the cider will reactivate with the additional sugar boost. The tops of the bottles are sealed, which traps the carbon dioxide in the bottles. Voila! Sparkling cider. JEFFREY HALL IS THE SOMMELIER FOR THE FOUR SEASONS HOTEL-ST. LOUIS.

“SLB delivers the freshest, most exciting version of Tchaikovsky’s classic, year after year.”

~St. Louis Magazine

[FRONT&CENTER by donna parrone

WHEN SHAKESPEARE’S HAMLET SAYS “…the play’s the thing wherein I’ll catch the conscience

of the King,” he is telling us the play contains a truth that will affect the King and allow Hamlet to ascertain his guilt or innocence. I hear “the play’s the thing” in my head when a script lacks veracity in the storytelling. I would prefer an inadequate telling of a great story than a beautiful rendition of an incomplete one. The Repertory Theatre’s first studio offering, Mothers and Sons by Terrence McNally, has many strengths: a lovely cast led by the indomitable Darrie Lawrence as Katharine Gerard, a mother whose son died 20 years earlier of AIDS; a gorgeous set by James Wolk; and what is meant to be an engaging exploration of the relationships between mothers and sons, unconditional love and the power of forgiveness. Unfortunately, the play often feels pedantic and preachy, and director Michael Evan Haney doesn’t help us at the start, when we spend the first scene watching the backs of the actors as they stare out the apartment window. From the beginning, there was a disconnection, and when her son’s ex-partner, Cal, yells at Katharine, “Why are you here?!” I felt his frustration: this story feels contrived and overwritten. Switching gears, Winter Opera Saint Louis opened its 10th season with Franz Lehar’s The Merry Widow, a play so light in substance it nearly floats away. ‘A wealthy widow in Paris teases her former flame’; yes, that’s the extent of its plot. But Winter Opera always manages to cast a strong ensemble, and this offering is no different. There is solid work by the comic leads: Holly Janz and Jack Swanson as the ambassador’s wife Valencienne and her lover; Kurtis Shoemake as the clowning Njegus. I was particularly enamored of Janz’ gorgeous mezzo and fine acting skills. As the widow, Hanna Glawari, I found soprano Kathy Pyeatt’s voice lovely, but her acting felt one-dimensional, especially in the first act where the smile never leaves her face; merry indeed, but not much more than that. The songs are charming, though, and the humor keeps the spun sugar plot moving along. While many of the costumes were lovely, especially the traditional dress in the second act, I found the ballgowns to be a bit of a mishmash of fabric, period and style—not what I’ve come to expect from the talented JC Krajicek. I enjoyed a student production this month as well, Macbeth at MICDS. Director Patrick Huber sets the 410-year-old story in a present-day, dystopian society and gives the witches a strong influence over the plot, even adding an opening scene where their men are butchered, igniting revenge against Macbeth. (Indeed, pivoting the story on the witches as instigators or on Macbeth’s own tragic choice is the first decision a director must make.) Kudos to Zion Thomas as Banquo.

SCENIC SALZBURG by dorothy weiner | photos by marc weiner

sk people what comes to mind when Salzburg is mentioned, and they’ll probably say beer. But once you’ve been there, you’ll know the right answer is music. This ancient Austrian city is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the site of the Mozarteum conservatory and the renowned Salzburg Festival (co-founded by Richard Strauss). It was also the home of 20th-century conductor Herbert von Karajan and the setting for The Sound of Music. You can see the hill Maria ran down and the fountain she passed in a horse-drawn carriage, singing Do-Re-Mi with the kids. The von Trapps aside, Salzburg has all the charm you’d expect of a Baroque city, especially its old town with the winding Getreidegasse that empties into monument-filled squares from a series of secretive passages. The city well predates the actual Baroque period (1600 to 1750), and many structures remain from earlier times. But fires and subsequent reconstructions over the centuries have resulted in an elegant, bright, white-washed town in the Baroque style. You can look up at almost any point in the old city and see names and dates written under the eaves of the colorful

townhomes, which are four stories tall and house different families on each level. The dates there reveal when the structure was built and by whom. Mozart’s ‘geburtshaus,’ or birth house, now a museum, occupies part of the top floor of such a building on Getreidegasse. There you can see the three rooms in which he lived with his father Leopold and sister Nannerl (Anna Marie). If you’re an admirer of his more than 600 compositions and 22 operas, the 10 euro entrance fee opens the door to such wonders as his handwritten sheet music, letters to his wife, and cherished possessions like tobacco pouches, his pianoforte and violin, and a gem-studded ring given to him by a royal patron when he was a child. Not to be missed is the cathedral, consecrated in its current form in 1628. It is considered a paragon of Renaissance architecture, with its marble façade and twin symmetrical towers. The interior is ornately adorned with frescoes and Italian-made altarpieces. Its entrance is flanked by enormous marble statues of St. Peter with keys and St. Paul with a sword, symbolizing the sacred and the secular. Inscribed above the door are the dates 774, 1628 and 1959, signifying the year it

EAT

The outdoor cafes are charming for breakfast and lunch. Don’t miss a signature treat from nearby Linz, the LINZER TORTE: almond butter and red currant jelly with a lattice crust. Salzburg is known for MOZARTKUGEL, round, chocolate-covered marzipan and pistachio confections invented in 1890 by master confectioner Paul Fürst. You will see them sold everywhere, but the authentic ones are wrapped in silver and available only at Café-Konditorei Furst.

STAY

A few doors from Mozart’s birthplace, GOLDENER HIRSCH is elegant, composed of three conjoined medieval townhouses. ALTSTADT RADISSON is actually an old inn dating to the 14th century that retains its charm, but has been updated with modern conveniences. It overlooks the river and has an acclaimed dining room, Restaurant Symphonie. Rooms start at 310 euros. More economical is HOTEL NEUTOR, just off the main commercial and tourist street, Getreidegasse. Known as the hotel of choice for orchestral groups and musicians during the Salzburg Festival, it has dedicated ‘sleep-late’ floors where check-out is 1 p.m. Its dining room, Artist’s Café, displays local artwork. Prices start at 110 euros. This is a walking city extraordinaire. Have fun exploring the winding, mysterious passageways that intersect GETREIDEGASSE. Duck into the shops and cafes. Browse the earthy GRÜNMARKT, held in front of Collegiate Church and offering everything from fruits and sausages to cheese and pastry. Tour FESTSPIELHAUS, where the August SALZBURG FESTIVAL has been immortalized. The hall was built in 1607 and was originally the court stables! St. Peter’s Cemetery, the burial place for NONNBERG ABBEY, is like a who’s who of Austrian history. Walk its gardens and chapels to see the tombs and catacombs of Salzburg mayors since the 1600s, as well as those of Mozart’s sister Nannerl and Michael Haydn (younger brother of Joseph).

salt ensured power and affluence. Interestingly, there are 24 churches in and around Old Town, a result of the two monasteries—Capuchin and Benedictine—which located there in the 1600s to stem the tide of Protestantism. So even if you’re not into music, there still will be plenty to see and do. High on a hill—Salzburg is set amid an Alpine backdrop—the town includes a castle and a fortress, accessible by funicular. Also situated near the river is the historic Hotel Bristol, site of the first psychoanalytic conference—presided over, of course, by Sigmund Freud. It also was the first place to have electricity, which earned it the nickname ‘the electric hotel.’ Nearby is the home where astrophysicist Christian Doppler was born. He turned to physics by default, as he was too sickly to go into the family business, masonry. There is no lack of museums, churches, concert halls and monuments to see here, including a small westward-facing lion in Residenzplatz holding the Austrian coat of arms and sticking its tongue out, legend has it, at Germany. And, of course, you’ll want plenty of time to sample all those Austrian brews. Music notwithstanding, Austria is indeed No. 2 in the world in beer consumption, just behind the Czech Republic.

The little stores in the old city are filled with dirndl skirts, lederhosen and traditional Austrian coats and blazers. Beautiful wooden toys also can be found, especially charming Pinocchio dolls. There also are porcelain and Austrian jewelry of silver with garnet, as well as painted boxes and crossstitched samplers.

was built and the years it was re-consecrated after a fire and World War II bombings. Perhaps most awe-inducing, though, is the Romanesque font where Mozart was baptized. Nearby in Residenzplatz is a remarkable fountain of horses spouting water, patterned after the Bernini fountain in Rome. It’s a stone’s throw from the Residenz, the home Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau, the city’s Prince Bishop from 1587 to 1612. Forward-thinking (albeit notoriously power hungry), he was the first to separate horse stables from human residences and move the cemetery away from the center of town, which reduced disease. The youngest bishop, at 26, he presided over many innovations, but ended his career in prison after he was deposed for over-reaching. In addition to his official residence, Dietrich constructed the lovely Mirabell palace and gardens for his mistress, Salome Alt. Today a vision of golden pansies and pointed lily tulips, it contains remarkable Italian statuary, including one patterned after the famous Susanna Bathing, but with the face and body of Alt. Salzburg is a marvelous walking city, with Baroque buildings lining its charming Salzach River. A wealthy place throughout history, its location on the river and its rich deposits of

Sometimes, being on the right side of justice puts you on the wrong side of the law. Mildred and Richard Loving found themselves in that position in late-1950s Virginia, a time and place not known for interracial tolerance. Based on a true story, the film explores the timeline of the couple’s tender relationship, from learning their first child was on the way to inspiring a U.S. Supreme Court case on marriage equality. Though they had married in Washington, D.C., Mildred and Richard could not legally live together in Virginia because they were an interracial couple. They endured prejudice and bullying by law enforcement and local courts, but survived with the help of relatives. The film moves at a gentle pace, with lingering shots of facial expressions and interpersonal reactions. The cast members were new names to me, but all played their roles effectively, from the soft-spoken Mildred to the hard-edged police officers who pursued her and Richard. Perhaps the film’s most striking takeaway is that this kind of discrimination was not just a product of the distant past—it has been felt within the lifetimes of many Americans alive today.

FOCUS: PEACE PARC PROVENCE by megan ortiz

SPIRITUALITY IS NOT SOMETHING PARC PROVENCE ADDRESSES ONLY

around the holidays. While religious gatherings of various faiths are scheduled on a weekly basis and special services are held on holidays, the spiritual well-being of residents is a daily focus, says administrator Tracy Cecil. “Spirituality is more than just a religious experience. It’s about bringing peace, comfort and inspiration to our residents,” she says. With 120 residents in the memory care community, the opportunities are as diverse as those living there. Art therapy and music therapy are available. Jewish, Catholic and other services for a host of faiths are held. Even nature plays a key role in providing a sense of peace. With nine courtyards and a beautiful walking path, residents have many inviting opportunities to spend time outdoors. The diverse options allow new community members to acclimate more easily and to become involved more quickly in Parc Provence life. “When joining a new church, starting a new job or moving to a new school, there’s always a transition period,” Cecil says. “I think the staff does a great job of holding people’s hands and helping them get to know Parc to make the transition smooth.” A big favorite among residents is Molly, a golden retriever who often socializes with community members. Residents also are allowed to bring their pets with them to Parc Provence, and staffers help care for the cats and dogs. “I think pets provide a stress relief for residents,” Cecil says. “It allows them to express themselves. And it’s a chance

for them to give love and receive love. Just the smiles alone are awesome to see.” The art therapy program, too, is of special significance. Each October, a corridor about 200 feet long is filled with artwork created the previous year. The gallery brings a sense of pride to those who created the pieces. “We had a resident celebrate her 100th birthday a few weeks ago,” says activities director Lauren Heaney. “She had a party with friends, family and staff. She is a huge part of the art program, and we left all her art displayed during the party. She was so proud, and so were her friends.” Music is another key component in the daily schedule at Parc. Musical performances are incorporated into the schedule, and residents play instruments like piano, chimes, bells and the ukulele. Music also is part of the church services at the onsite chapel. Rabbis, priests and pastors all hold scheduled services and meet with residents one-on-one when needed. “We have some residents who are unable to speak well, but we find they still sing hymns and recite verses they learned in childhood,” Heaney says. “We may not get to have conversations with them, but when they attend services, they are singing. It’s really neat to see.” Staffers aren’t the only ones impressed. “We have loved ones who visit and say their family member has blossomed here,” Heaney says. “At home, they might not have had this much social interaction, but we keep them busy. Those of us who are part of Parc Provence are not just employees; we are family. We provide care, but also love.”

BY ALEXA BEATTIE

Often referred to as ‘the long goodbye,’ Alzheimer’s disease now affects 5 million Americans. It is a progressive, degenerative disorder that attacks the nerve cells of the brain, leading to loss of memory and other intellectual abilities. Even though dementia was recognized by the Greeks and Romans, German psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer was the first to diagnose a case, in 1901. Alzheimer followed his 50-year-old patient, Auguste D., until she died in 1906, when he reported his findings publicly. Although the disease mostly affects people over age 65, it is not considered to be a normal part of aging.

IS IT ALZHEIMER’S? ALZHEIMER’S VS. DEMENTIA

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common of all the progressive dementias and, according to the Alzheimer’s Association, accounts for 60 to 80 percent of all dementia cases. While forgetfulness can be a normal part of aging, Dr. Michael Gerardo of Mercy Clinic Internal Medicine and Geriatrics says a disease is present only if the memory loss significantly disrupts daily life. Early symptoms include an inability to retain newly learned information and to remember dates and times. As the disease progresses, he says, a person will have increased difficulty carrying out tasks like managing finances and will experience deepening confusion about events, times and places. Eventually, as more of the brain becomes affected, bodily function shuts down. The brain, in effect, forgets how to speak, how to swallow and how to move. Gerardo says in the other progressive, irreversible conditions like dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), there are more likely to be marked behavior changes earlier on. Patients with DLB may experience sleep disturbances as well as delusions and visual hallucinations, while frontotemporal patients may experience changes in personality and have difficulty with language. Vascular dementia, the doctor says, is the kind that results from a ‘vascular insult’ (or stroke) to the brain, which leads to an abrupt change in cognitive or physical status—an inability to retrieve words, for example, or muscle weakness. Gerardo adds that a kind of dementia can be present with lead poisoning or hyperthyroidism, but that form goes away with treatment.

THE BIOLOGY

“Alzheimer’s is distinctive for what it physically does to the brain,” says Toni Dewhirst, resident care coordinator at Dolan Memory Care Homes. Hallmark abnormalities, she says, are certain ‘plaques’ and ‘tangles’ of protein that build up

By the time the disease is in its final stages, the brain has usually shrunk significantly.” between and inside nerve cells. The damage initially appears to take place in the hippocampus, the part of the brain essential in forming memories, but as neurons die, more and more of the brain is affected. Though some build-up of plaques and tangles is normal as we age, the Alzheimer’s brain tends to be more extreme. By the time the disease is in its final stages, the brain has usually shrunk significantly. Gerardo says that while there’s no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, there are medications that can slow its progression. Aricept is most commonly prescribed for mild to moderate cases, but it doesn’t work for everyone, he says. Namenda also can help delay late-stage behavior changes by binding to receptors in the brain. “We know that in a small subset, cognition may improve for a while, allowing a person to stay in their own home for longer,” Gerardo says. “But sadly, the outcome is always the same.”

Two out of three people with Alzheimer’s are women, and while the verdict is still out as to why, a simple reason might be age, says Dr. John Morris, director of the Knight Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at Washington University School of Medicine. “Women live longer than men, and the greatest risk factor for Alzheimer’s is age,” he says, adding that 93 percent of those with a clinical diagnosis are over 70. “The older we are, the more likely we are to have it,” he says. Morris adds, however, that there may be a genetic component at play as well, with an interesting twist: “If your parents had the disease, you have increased risk, and that risk seems to be higher still if your mother had it,” he explains. Dr. George Grossberg, Samuel W. Fordyce professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience at Saint Louis University School of Medicine, is skeptical of viewing women’s longevity as an explanation of the disease’s prevalence in the female population. “If you control for age and take 1,000 men age 85 and 1,000 women age 85, you’ll always see more cases in the female group,” he says. This leads him to conclude that estrogen might play a part. “We know the hormone is good for the brain and central nervous system, and we know it drops off after menopause,” he says. “This leads us to wonder if older women are losing its protective effects since animal studies have shown that estrogen also can improve connectedness between cells.”

ESTROGEN’S ROLE

One problem could be that, because of health concerns, doctors do not recommend estrogen supplements. “The risks of cancers, blood clots, heart attack and stroke associated with the hormone outweigh its protective value where Alzheimer’s is concerned,” Grossberg says. He adds that plant-derived phytoestrogens (found in soy, for example) may be the safer option for postmenopausal women, but says they shouldn’t be taken long term either, because they also have been shown to increase risk for gynecological malignancies. Grossberg also offers another theory: Research seems to say that exercising our neurons may help keep dementia at bay. And if octogenarian women today had fewer educational opportunities in their youth than their male counterparts, might that bode well for future aging female populations now that opportunities are more equal? Morris offers yet more hope: prevention trials begun three or four years ago are looking at whether certain medications might work prophylactically in folks who have the pathology, but no clinical deterioration as yet. “It’s too early to know for sure,” he says. “But the trials are going well in the sense that the medications are being well received by the people who are taking them.”

“We are a culture that promotes family involvement,” she says, adding that Stonecrest works with families to learn as much as possible about a resident’s life story so that staff also can relate on a deeper level. Stonecrest has implemented a Music & Memory program to help residents reconnect with the world through musictriggered memories, and provides each memory-impaired resident with an iPod of personalized tunes. “No matter what the memory loss is, people still remember songs,” Pedroli says. “Music really can make a difference.” So can other sensory elements. The Sheridan at Creve Coeur, opening in spring 2017, believes that aromatherapy is effective in treating a host of dementia-related issues. ‘Essence’ is a participantspecific program that uses essential oil massage to address things like anxiety, sleeplessness and the afternoon restlessness that often accompanies Alzheimer’s. “Our focus is on well-being,” says Hollie Kemp, corporate director of resident experience. “And on providing meaningful experiences for people with rich histories.” ‘Bookmarks’ is a Sheridan program that promotes reading by offering a book club and literature appreciation classes. Reading, Kemp explains, is an in-the-moment experience, which gives people purpose. In addition, she says our ability to read impacts our independence. “The longer we can keep our residents reading, the longer they feel their autonomy.” Similarly, the ‘Spark’ program is designed specifically to promote brain health and stimulation, offering classes in sleep, nutrition, stress management and physical education. “Memory loss is a difficult journey,” Kemp says. “But it’s so important to focus on possibility—not just on what has been lost, but on what remains.”

As rates of Alzheimer’s climb, so does the need for good ‘memory care.’ Retirement communities everywhere are creating programs to meet the needs of people for whom ‘living in the moment’ has a particular importance. Lesley Pedroli, director of sales and marketing at Stonecrest at Clayton View, stresses the value of “meeting a person where they are,” and reducing their anxiety as much as possible. This might mean eliminating ‘remember when ... ‘ questions from conversation and relating to a person in different ways—for instance, through music, gardening or art. This, Pedroli says, is the philosophy of leading dementia expert Teepa Snow, who teaches the value of connection when primary verbal communication has been altered by dementia. “When there is memory impairment, the art of conversation has to change. One of our main goals is to help families learn new ways to communicate with a loved one whose interactive abilities are not what they once were,” Pedroli says.

CONNECT

RELAX

Simply hanging out with friends may improve the brain’s plasticity and help preserve cognitive ability. Not only does social interaction help reduce stress and boost the immune system, it also can decrease the risk of dementia.

A 2014 study published in Molecular Psychology showed that poor sleep can lead to impaired memory, and that chronic stress can affect our ability to learn and adapt to new situations. Yoga, meditation, even an afterdinner stroll around the block, can promote a good night’s rest.

NOURISH

MOVE

Diets high in saturated fat (like meats and cheeses) may lead to cognitive decline, but a Mediterranean diet high in monounsaturated fats like olive oil and avocadoes, may protect the brain against disease.

In addition to increasing brainpower by helping grow, repair and maintain brain cells, exercise and movement also increase alertness and productivity throughout the day.

DISCOVER According to AARP, a recent study from the University of Edinburgh and the University of Texas reports that trying new things can strengthen our brains. While the new thing could be a language or a pottery class, it could also be something smaller—seeing a 3-D movie or even using your non-dominant hand to brush your teeth!

[PARENT TRAP LEADERS WORTHY OF RESPECT

by dr. tim jordan THROUGHOUT THIS ELECTION

season, our children have frequently witnessed adults behaving badly. They have seen innumerable occurrences of disrespect and incivility, and woefully few adults modeling true strength and leadership. Let me offer two stories that exemplify the kind of human character we want our kids to emulate. An old Zen master was talking to a group of his students when an angry warrior confronted him with insults, even spitting on the master. True to his character, the Zen teacher was undeterred by the man’s behavior, resulting in the warrior stomping off humiliated. The students were perplexed, and asked the master, “Why did you allow him to treat you that way?” The teacher responded, “If someone offers you a gift and you do not accept it, to whom does it belong?” They answered, “He who offered it.” The master pointed out, “The same is true for anger, criticism and disrespect. When they are not accepted, they will forever belong to the one who holds onto them.” This is one of the lessons I would like for kids to take away from the incivility of this political season. Remind your children that no one has the power to make them feel anything unless they give permission. They are always in charge of their emotions and reactions to people and events. They never have to become victims of discourteous words, rumors or disrespect. In another story: A ruthless, barbarian general confronted a holy man who was quietly meditating in his cottage. When the holy man refused to acknowledge him as conqueror, he shouted, “Don’t you know who I am? You are looking at the man who could strike you dead without batting an eye!” The holy man raised his gaze to the general and calmly said, “Don’t you know that you are looking at a man who can be struck dead without batting an eyelid?” The general was speechless. He left the man without another word. Whenever you see your kids refuse to allow the words or actions of others to bother them, you should acknowledge them for displaying strength of character, courage and the wisdom to stay above the fray. These are the behaviors that show true freedom, where you don’t allow others to affect your mood or sense of yourself. You become more inner-directed and are not swayed by popular opinion or cultural imperatives. It’s been difficult to find good role models for this kind of character in our politicians. Look for stories to share with your kids about leaders like the ones in these tales. That’s the way to teach our children about true power and leadership.

Estates house into their dream property. They focused on every tiny detail in the 7,100-squarefoot home, creating what they found to be a perfect place to entertain and also escape for privacy. “When we first moved in, I couldn’t wait to sit in every room,” Myles says. “Every space has something so different and special to offer. Some rooms you want to meditate in, some you want to get up and dance in.” While the Mankofskys have lived in the home since 2003, the St. Louis natives intend to move to California. Their son and daughter-in-law now reside there, and they want to live by the ocean. “Yes, it’s really hard to leave,” Myles says. “If we could move the house to California, we’d do it in a second.” To help bring the ocean a little closer to them, the Mankofskys installed a 375-gallon aquarium on the main level of their home. One of their favorite places to sit was around the kitchen island near the aquarium. “We love to scuba dive, and we love sea life,” Les says. The house was designed to look like a California home on the inside and a Colorado resort on the outside. “We took it from a five-bedroom home to a three-bedroom one so we could make all the rooms bigger,” Les says. “One bedroom was turned into a dressing room for Myles.” With a car collection that includes a Lotus, Porsche, Audi and Ferrari, Les—a former Formula Atlantic race car driver—had a freestanding nine-car garage and a three-car attached garage. Myles calls the former the ultimate man cave. She, on the other hand, says she’ll miss the exercise room most. “I had a TV that swiveled 360 degrees,” she says. “The walls are covered in mirrors. It has everything someone needs for a good workout, and it definitely helped me train for a few triathlons. You can just go right upstairs and get whatever you need done.” New Year’s parties became regular affairs in the home, small and intimate dinner parties were common, and so were elegant evenings when celebrating special events. “We often would gather around the kitchen island,” Myles says. “People loved to look at the fish. It’s just very peaceful and serene. When we had a small group, we would gather there with champagne and drinks. It was conducive to good conversation—both humorous and serious!”

HOMEWORK] DEAR HOMEWORK,

We need to put a new asphalt shingle roof on our house and wonder what you might recommend. There’s so much of it! If there are other minor (meaning not too expensive) thoughts, please add them to the mix. Sincerely, TOO MUCH ROOF OVER MY HEAD

DEAR TOO MUCH ROOF OVER MY HEAD,

I’m glad you asked for some ideas before you started with any work, because I think we can improve things here quite a bit. First, I think the current color scheme of khaki green and white with Oxblood shutters works well with your brick color. I think the asphalt shingle color called Weathered Wood (a mixture of greens and browns) would be a good looking choice. That said, there are several issues to address before the re-roofing. I would add two rather large triangular roof vents to the vast main area of roofing to break it up and add some detail. Next, I would suggest a large, shuttered window in the front porch gable to give the house more of a two-story look. Even if this is essentially fake, specifying translucent glass will mean that no one will notice. Finally, don’t allow any of the foundation plantings to hide the already overwhelmed ground-floor elevation. You will notice that I show trimming all the plants to the height of the window sills. I also show using an upright evergreen to mask the right side driveway turn-around. I feel that the resulting composition has a much more balanced and comfortable feel and that the ‘sea of roofing and siding’ no longer dominates. Hope this helps, —HOMEWORK

True blue never goes out of style, and currently it’s all the rage in fashion and interiors. Blue can please anyone. It can be dark and moody or light and airy, but the chicest way to do blue right now is by layering different hues together for a look that’s inspired by the runway.

grounds decades ago, the wildlife park is bustling with wildlife these days. Twenty-two elk and seven bison call the 528-acre park home. Visitors also can find geese, waterfowl, water turkeys and white-tailed deer on any given day. “People are usually surprised at how close you can get to the animals,” park supervisor Jim Emery says. “For being as close as we are to an urban area, it’s very uncommon. Early in the morning, you can be within a couple of feet. That seems to impress people the most.” With a 3.2-mile hilly trail to hike and a car path, visitors can either walk or drive through the area. However, there are warning signs throughout the park to remind people that the 500-pound animals can be dangerous. During mating season, visitors are encouraged only to drive and remain in their cars. “They will treat you like an elk, and you really have to keep on your toes,” Emery says. “There is nothing like these animals. They are truly wild. It takes 1,000 years to domesticate animals, and we have not been around elk and bison that long.” The park stretches 528 acres, 400 of it fenced, and the bison have 100 acres to themselves. But just as visitors on foot have been injured by the animals, so too have cars. “Bison can be dangerous anytime and have been known to damage cars,” Emery says. “We make it clear that they enter at their own risk. Bison always give off signs just like cattle and horses do before they get aggressive. But people don’t always see the signs. Anytime you have animals—even domesticated ones—there is always a risk of danger.” Few are scared away from getting an up-close look at the park’s beauty. Each season provides visitors a different glimpse into the lives of the animals. Summer is when babies are born, and fall is when the elk rut and bugle, which is a majestic sound only heard during the mating season. When it snows, cars are lined up outside waiting for the road to be cleared and the gates to open because of the unique view. The property, which was part of the Tyson Valley Powder Plant, was used by the Army to test fire ammunition before World War II and during the Korean War. Since St. Louis County took possession of it in 1971, it has been transformed by its inhabitants. “Sometime when the Army had it, they had elk roaming around,” Emery says. “At one point, for safety reasons, they decided there were too many and shot them. The story is that one remained within these boundaries, and that’s how the park got its name in the 1970s. I can’t prove it, but I suspect that lone elk’s bloodline is probably still here.”
