Here we are again. If you’re anything like my kids, you’re not happy about it. It’s back to school, the time of year when everyone is forced to face the end of their leisurely summer lifestyle and saddle up for the fall hustle. That means sports schedules, schoolwork, morning rush and holidays galore. I might be the only one who is ready this year. The past few months, our house has been extra full (two nannies for three kids) and extra—how shall I put it?—loud. That is thanks to my two oldest angels who have decided to take their sibling quarrels to the next level.

It highlights upcoming events and puts the spotlight on worthy volunteers. Get ready to add even more to your calendar once you flip through the pages!

Even though a relaxed weekend is about to be a thing of the past, I’m excited for what’s to come. Since I still haven’t figured out a way to truly hit the pause button, I might as well embrace it, right? We had a great summer: a beach trip that managed to run smoothly with three kids in tow, numerous long weekends at the lake, outdoor concerts, our annual Forest Park picnic before a Muny show (Matilda was exceptional!), and chill weeknights with nothing to do. But tomorrow, as we do every year, we’ll make the ceremonious walk to school with the kids for first-day pictures and hugs … and I’ll silently wish that we could start it all over again.

COVER STORY

DEDICATED SUPPORT AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY by julia m. johnson

PHOTO COURTESY OF AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

WHEN A CANCER DIAGNOSIS IS MADE, it’s not just the patient who can benefit from a helping hand and a supportive shoulder. Family members and caregivers need compassionate attention as well, and the St. Louis office of the American Cancer Society (ACS) is committed to providing it. Each year, the organization raises funding for important care programs, research, advocacy, caregiver services and education to give people an edge in the battle against cancer. According to communications director Christine Winter, the tide is turning in a favorable direction. “Since 1991, the overall U.S. cancer death rate has declined by 27 percent, and more people are surviving than ever before,” she says. “Now, nearly 500 lives are saved each day. This is how we know our efforts are having a huge impact.” To calculate its outreach, the local organization provides 18,500 complimentary stays for out-of-town patients and family each year at its Hope Lodge; more than 15,000 rides to and from medical appointments; support programs for 8,000 people in treatment; and a 24/7 cancer helpline. And currently, the organization is funding 16 local research grants totaling nearly $9 million. “A number of different subjects are being studied, like breast cancer and treatment disparities,”

Winter says. Past ACS research successes include confirming the link between smoking and lung cancer, performing groundbreaking work in bone marrow transplantation, and gaining a greater understanding of the role of genetics in cancer. Winter says Hope Lodge is a godsend for the families of patients in treatment at area medical centers. The 44-room facility on Lindell Boulevard provides free overnight accommodations, eliminating a common barrier to treatment. “The high cost of hotels sometimes prohibits people from making a potentially lifesaving trip to St. Louis,” Winter explains. “Hope Lodge removes that worry.” World Wide Technology CEO Jim Kavanaugh helps lead efforts to support and sustain the facility and its important services. All of the organization’s life-affirming work is made possible by generous supporters and an angel army of staff and volunteers, says senior event manager Kathy Fritz. To raise critical funding each year, the chapter throws one of St. Louis’ most exciting parties, the Champions of Hope Gala. Peter Blumeyer, St. Louis president for UMB Bank, is chair of this year’s black-tie event scheduled for Nov. 9 at The Chase Park Plaza. Attendees will be treated to remarks from Emmy Award-winning actor and St. Louis native

Sterling K. Brown, and the masqueradethemed evening will feature an auction and music from the dance band Vote for Pedro. Guests will have a chance to support Hope Lodge directly through a ‘raise the paddle’ portion of the auction. According CHAMPIONS OF HOPE GUEST to Fritz, the gala has SPEAKER STERLING K. BROWN raised more than $3.8 million since it was introduced four years ago. The local organization’s work also is made possible by the society’s CEOs Against Cancer Missouri-St. Louis Chapter, which leads the gala effort each year. The group of area executives like Kavanaugh and Blumeyer feel a deep commitment to the cause and use their many connections to help further it. They also extend the effort at their own companies, encouraging wellness, awareness, volunteerism and more among employees. “We have been able to make a tremendous impact thanks to this powerful, influential group,” Winter says. “Our events, sponsors and donors fund our mission, and volunteers fuel it.” Kavanaugh says he believes in the organization’s work because the disease hits close to home for so many people. “In the coming years, thousands of area patients will be told they have cancer, and their best chance for survival is here in St. Louis,” he notes. “Like so many, I’ve seen firsthand the effect a diagnosis has on individuals and loved ones. I’ve experienced the shock, anger, uncertainty and fear of being told that you or someone you love must undergo weeks, months, even years of treatment.” Blumeyer adds, “UMB is honored to support the critical mission of the American Cancer Society. We are committed to helping the CEOs Against Cancer St. Louis Chapter continue its incredible track record of hosting one of the largest ACS fundraisers in the country.” Fiercely dedicated to fighting the disease on all fronts, the American Cancer Society St. Louis remains a key partner for patients and their families, according to Fritz. “We are with people throughout the treatment process, from start to finish and beyond,” she says. “We want them to know that hope and help are part of the journey.” & AUGUST 14, 2019

ST. ALBANS 〉〉

Way out west, Manchester Road (Hwy. 100) dwindles to a winding, hilly country road. It’s paved, though. Turn into the lane alongside the golf course at St. Albans, and you may feel as though you’ve been transported to Scotland. The hilly community on the outer edge of the metro near the Missouri River, once charted by Lewis and Clark as the country’s western frontier, feels unlike anywhere else in these parts. And it’s experiencing another transformation that respects the surrounding architecture and landscape: The Inns at St. Albans is expanding with a $3.6 million lodge for guests of weddings, corporate retreats and weekend cooking school events, doubling the 14 rooms presently available for overnight stays. Construction will begin in September and is scheduled for completion by summer 2021—on the site of a home that once housed the Chesterfield Day School near the historic Head’s Store. Indeed, there’s good reason a visit to the village feels like arriving at another place in a different time. Theodore Link, world-renowned architect who designed St. Louis Union Station, built The Studio Inn here.

Pulitzer Prize-winning photos are images that you can’t unsee. You can’t help but feel something when you encounter them for the first time, and the feeling returns whenever you see them again: rage, astonishment, sorrow, joy. Many of us remember where we were the first time we saw them, whether in the Post-Dispatch, Globe-Democrat or TIME and LIFE magazines. Everyone has seen the flag-raising on Iwo Jima after U.S. Marines fought bitterly to take the tiny Pacific island from the Japanese. It was made into a statue, which tops the Marine Corps War Memorial near Arlington, Virginia. Many cannot forget the Post’s prize-winner from 2015, a Ferguson protester clad in an American-flag shirt hurling a tear-gas canister back at police. Some of these photos changed the course of

history. Protests against the Vietnam War swelled after stark images were published: The South Vietnamese police chief executing a Viet Cong officer with a single shot to the head; the naked girl screaming as she flees exploding napalm. They captured a national mood, as with the exultant family racing across the tarmac to welcome home a returning service member. Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs are family photos. The family? All of us. Pulitzer winners—from when the photography prize was established during World War II to Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald to Ferguson to the migrant caravan—are on display through Jan. 9 at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park. They’re larger and clearer than the first time we saw them, which was typically on a grainy newspaper page. The arresting images are part of a traveling exhibition from the Newseum in Washington, D.C., where each and every prize-winner is on permanent display.

FERGUSON 〉〉

In an effort to improve and revitalize a city rocked by civil unrest just five years ago, local leaders have joined together to address Ferguson’s needs along the West Florissant corridor—the heart of the community and the epicenter of protests and violence. The nonprofit Health & Homes STL, which involves local business and community leaders, has begun an ambitious revitalization project. The first piece is already under construction. A $12.4 million Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis Teen Center of Excellence is scheduled to open in October. The three-story, 26,000-square-foot space is designed to serve 1,500 community members between the ages of 12 and 18. Mercy plans to break ground by year-end on an adjacent 11,000-square-foot clinic that will provide primary care and women’s services, plus behavioral health and other social services. All of this will be surrounded by 12,000 square feet of sidewalks, 17 new crosswalks, almost 4 miles of improved curbs and gutters, and street lighting. The overall plan, known as WestFlo District, is to serve as an area for residents to work, live and play. In addition, Health & Homes has raised $8 million and secured 4 acres of land for long-term plans, which include the construction of

better housing, a new grocery store and improved stormwater management.

THE METRO 〉〉

The creepy, nefarious Yahoo Boys are at it again, as though they’d ever stopped. These ruffians lurk at Internet cafés overseas, beyond the reach of western law enforcement in Benin and Lagos, Nigeria. The wily scam artists are as close as a few clicks of the mouse or thumbstrokes on your smartphone. I’ve met them on Facebook and Instagram. Maybe you’ve encountered them. They pose as attractive members of the opposite sex and cast wide, electronic nets to snare the lovelorn, the clueless, the men and women who feel trapped in bad marriages. The New York Times and Voice of America have written stories about the crooks who take millions of dollars monthly from foreign victims; like Robin Hood, they’re local heroes amid poverty. So, why is this important to anyone in the StL? Hopelessly hopeful men and women from St. Peters to Maryland Heights to Ladue can be bilked for thousands by someone who allegedly needs a plane ticket to visit their newfound online love or a few hundred dollars to upgrade a cellphone. Before blocking or ‘unfriending’ them, I’ve messed with the heads of a few would-be ‘suitors’ who want to message me on Instagram or become fast Facebook friends. These clowns typically follow thousands of Instagram accounts and have a few hundred users following them, but they only post a couple of ‘teaser’ photos. They’re never who they appear to be. They hijack the profiles of beautiful women and handsome men. A deployed U.S. Marine recently disconnected himself from all social media after The Times proved that his photos had been usurped hundreds of times. Yahoo Boys know enough English to flatter suckers everywhere, and keep inventing schemes to suck cash from them. Don’t be the next sucker.

HAMPTON HILLS 〉〉

This Friday, Aug. 16, is the 42nd anniversary of Elvis Presley’s untimely death. The ‘King of Rock and Roll’ was 42 when he died of a heart attack at his home in Memphis. Elvis had not been well, having performed his last concert earlier that summer—June 26, 1977— for a crowd of 18,000 in Indianapolis. They’d paid only $15 for a ticket. Morgan Aron Bluestein, 10, could probably tell you all of that; well, maybe not the exact date, the crowd size or the admission price. But he can tell you pretty much anything else about his idol because Morgan is an ETA—Elvis Tribute Artist. Elvis impersonators are a dime a dozen, but few of them just started sixth grade. Morgan has the moves down pat … and the look, as you can see from his photo. (That’s quite the sneer!) He comes by his fanaticism honestly. His father, Mark, 42, spelled his only child’s middle name with the solitary ‘A’ on purpose because that was how Elvis Presley’s parents, who were practically illiterate, spelled his middle name on the birth certificate. (Hmm … all of those 42’s. Coincidence?) Morgan’s dad has dozens of live Elvis performances on DVD. And Morgan (or ‘Mo’ or ‘L’il E,’ if you will) has

watched them since before he could walk or talk. For many years, the Bluesteins have made the mid-August pilgrimage from their home in Hampton Hills to Graceland to commemorate the passing of ‘The Artist of the Century.’ Mandy, Morgan’s mom, can be seen in the 2017 video of Today show host Jenna Bush Hager

chatting with L’il E, who was wearing a distinctive pair of Elvis-style sunglasses, across the street from Graceland on the 40th anniversary. For the Bluesteins, Memphis is mecca: Mark sprinkled the ashes of his parents, Carol and Terry, over the side of a bridge at Graceland. He has an ‘ELV1S’ tattoo (for his No. 1 hits album) on his upper arm with ‘TCB’ and a lightning bolt, which is also the decal on the back window of his Camaro. (‘Taking care of business in a flash’ was a motto Elvis used in the 1970s; the TCB Band was his rhythm section.) L’il E interrupts his dad: “I’m the biggest Elvis fan!” He started school Aug. 6, but on Aug. 16, he will be in Memphis in full ’70s Las Vegas rehearsal regalia. The blue suede shoes he got in first grade finally fit. He hasn’t performed in Memphis (yet), but he did have a gig in Branson last March, complete with scarves and a towel to wipe off the sweat. The fan girls screamed as he went through a repertoire that included live favorites “Polk Salad Annie” and the “Mystery Train/ Tiger Man” medley in a red silk shirt. Whither goeth Morgan Aron? Well, even though L’il E has been taking voice lessons, his dad says it won’t be into a recording studio anytime soon. &

Many contemplate divorce during the summer

Summer is here. Kids are out of school and family vacations are underway. This may be a joyous time for many, but for others, spending more time together only highlights familial strife. Spouses can find themselves bickering over finances, personalities can clash, and differences in parenting styles can be accentuated. This is why there is often an uptick in divorces once the summer comes to an end and children return to school. In fact, a study from 2016 found that March and August see spikes in divorce rates, which can continue for months after children return to school. One of the keys to a successful divorce is thorough planning that starts months in advance. The summer can be a great time to gather information that is pertinent to marriage dissolu-

tion. Individuals should consider the extent of marital assets and think about discussing them with a financial planner and a divorce attorney. Other records should be obtained, too, including those pertaining to debt, such as credit card statements. The summertime also provides a great opportunity for an individual to carefully consider whether divorce is right for them and, if possible, to talk it over with their spouse. Children are better off being kept out of the discussion until the decision is made and its affects on them are known. Yet, conversations about property division, child custody, child support and spousal maintenance can and should start early, whether with one’s spouse or formal and informal supports. Formal action to dissolve a marriage should only be undertaken when a solid understanding of the process and its ramifications is obtained. Only

then can an individual make legal decisions that further his or her best interests. This is why many choose to speak with an experienced family law attorney over the summer. Even if it is just to test the divorce waters, speaking with a legal professional can help provide clarity and guidance, perhaps setting an individual on a path toward a happier life. Stange Law Firm, PC limits their practice to family law matters including divorce, child custody, child support, paternity, guardianship, adoption, mediation, collaborative law and other domestic relation matters. Stange Law Firm, PC gives clients 24/7 access to their case through a secured online case tracker found on the website. They also give their clients their cell phone numbers.

THE INSIDER A GLIMPSE AT WHAT’S GOING ON AROUND ST. LOUIS AND BEYOND. &

by patty hannum A MONTH AGO, I SOUNDED AN ALARM that I was coming undone. Well, it happened. I exploded. If you were in the Clayton area on Sunday, July 14, you might have heard a large rumbling noise and a loud scream and perhaps were hit by little bits of red hair. Sorry about that! So, this is the column where I say goodbye, bid you adieu, slán leat. I am going back to where I came from, which, according to my birth certificate, is Brentwood, Missouri. But first, there are a few things to remember about me: I love my country. I would never want to live anywhere else. I consider myself patriotic. I pay my taxes without grumbling, and the only ones I complain about are real estate taxes. (But then I remember that waste management professionals come to the back of my house to pick up the trash so that I don’t even have to remember to put it out!) Members of my family have served in every war when called upon. No deferments. We fly the American flag on holidays. No, I don’t wear an American flag bikini for two reasons: One, yuck. Who wants to see a 59-year-old in a bikini? And two, my dad taught me that the flag should remain in its original form, not on a T-shirt, pair of shorts or anything that distorts the image. My views tend to lean left. I have been called a liberal (fine with me), libertard (not sure what that means), socialist (nope), communist (nope), bleeding heart (yuck), uninformed (oh so wrong), and I have never once punched anyone for it. I enjoy and encourage informed debate between people with different opinions. We have four newly elected Congresswomen who are racial minorities. None of them hold any seniorranking positions on any committees to be able to move forward big pieces of legislation, but still, the president has decided to shine a bright light on them. Why is he so bothered by these women who don’t have that much power? He told them to “go back” to where they came from and clean up the mess in their countries; three out of four were born in the United States. So I decided to listen to the president. I am heading back to Brentwood to clean up the mess. Hmm. There does not appear to be a mess in Brentwood. It looks like the schools are in great shape. In fact, people actually move there so their kids can attend them. Real estate gets snapped up quickly, so you can’t ponder a home purchase for too long. Oh, and I heard from one longtime resident that police officers patrol areas on bikes, which makes them much more visible in the community and limits any shenanigans. Though, having grown up in Brentwood, it’s never really been known as a place to get wild. So Brentwood doesn’t need me. I still don’t know where my mom’s family came from. On ancestry.com, it shows them as far back as the Revolutionary War. (Watch out, Daughters of the American Revolution. I might be the newest member!) So Ireland, here I come. My grandfather Pat Fitzgerald didn’t leave a trail, so I’m not really sure where I’m going. Anyway, I ‘m sure some people won’t like this column, but don’t email me. I’ll respond with ‘contact the editor.’ She’s the one who gets to tell me Patty Unleashed is over because I have come undone. It’s been a nice ride.

▶ A PIECE OF ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY IS STILL UP FOR GRABS IN ST. LOUIS. The 3,000-square-foot T.A. PAPPAS HOUSE in Town & Country was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1955 and built of pre-cast, tinted concrete block. Its $1,200,000 sale price includes furniture designed by the famous architect. (There also has been interest in restoring and converting it into a museum.) The Pappas home is one of only two Wright structures in St. Louis; the other is the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park, which is open for tours.

GOAL SETTING fact that I am paying for it! But I still don’t feel like I am establishing a habit that will last, and I am not reaching my daily goal of 10,000 steps. The search continues.

Creating new habits is hard for me, especially when they require deep motivation to develop. One of my goals is to walk 30 minutes a day. This should be easy, but I find that I would rather do things other than put on my shoes and walk. So I set off looking for a technology solution to help. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been using a mobile app called Noom. It was created to encourage a healthy lifestyle by motivating users to change their behaviors. It’s a similar approach to Weight Watchers. You are connected with a personal coach and have a group to serve as your support system and push you through days when you regret eating that huge cheeseburger. The daily quizzes, articles and goal setting helped me lose more than 20 pounds. While that was a wonderful success and I love the way I feel, I still was not getting enough activity each day. I decided to try a traditional method and hired a personal trainer who I see twice a week. This has forced me to get up and go; I’m motivated by the

Not too long ago, I was adding a meeting to Google Calendar on my phone when I discovered a new option, Goal, only available in the smartphone and tablet app (although you can see and edit a goal on your computer). You can set a goal for exercising, building a skill, spending time with family, practicing selfcare or doing chores. Simply determine how often you want to do the activity, how long you want to spend on it and what time of day you want to do it. Google then will review your calendar to find the right time slot to schedule the activity. I set a goal to walk 30 minutes a day. The app reminds me to walk and asks me if I have done it. You mark when you actually do the activity, and Google Calendar uses artificial intelligence to schedule upcoming sessions when you are most likely to complete them. Goal setting, creating new habits and using a calendar to schedule the day are important skills to teach our teens and put into practice ourselves. Using tools such as Google Calendar to help you reach your goals is one way to achieve success. I would love to know what tools you use to learn new habits, be more active or just find time to be still. Share your ideas with me on social media or contact us at Town&Style!

structure of walls and windows, it’s where you relax, host get-togethers, raise your family and spend time with those you love. It’s an extension of your personality and an embodiment of your lifestyle. Doug Cohen of Douglas Properties, a luxury home developer, says the company began creating uniquely beautiful living spaces in 1986, and he enjoys working with individuals and families through all stages of their lives. “We can serve clients from their days as young renters to the time when they are empty nesters and everything in between,” says Cohen, who owns the business with his wife, Esther. She uses her interior design experience to help people personalize and customize their rooms. Currently, new Douglas homes are going up in neighborhoods like Olivette, Creve Coeur and University City, and the company also handles luxury multifamily properties and major interior renovation projects. According to Cohen, a consistent, time-tested reputation is one of the reasons the business has continued to grow. “My family has lived in St. Louis for three generations, so we understand the area and its real estate needs well,” he notes. “That definitely gives us an edge. Because we’ve been building here so long, clients and municipalities alike know they can trust us to produce high-quality properties.” Cohen says his company thoroughly grasps the evolving dynamics of local neighborhoods, which means clients receive a high level of value for their money. “For example, decades ago, areas like Olivette didn’t always attract the best homebuilders,” he explains. “Now, however, new home stock is being built by quality companies. It’s a target-rich environment for people seeking beautiful properties. Because we understand the region, we can counsel clients that a home they might build for $1.8 million in Clayton probably would cost about $1.3 million in Creve Coeur and $1.1 million in Olivette for the same size and similar features.” According to Cohen, many of the company’s clients have children, so they want to work with a developer who understands proximity to good school districts, major employers and other important considerations. “Being a family business means we have a good idea of families’ needs,” he says. “It’s no coincidence that many of my closest friends are people whose homes we have built.” Cohen adds that the company is highly skilled at keeping multiple projects flourishing without missing a beat. “I wear a lot of hats and am present for all of our clients,” he says. “Everyone receives the same level of service whether their home costs $700,000 or $4 million. Our motto is, ‘When you are ready to live well, call Douglas Properties.’ Y AL L IN TH E FA MIL Whatever clients’ luxury home needs are, we have many different ways to make them happy.” & N SPECIA L SECTIO

here is something about cracking open a cold brew: the refreshing sound, the cool taste of hops or citrus or malt, the relaxed surge that rushes through your body. It’s one of life’s simple pleasures, and it’s only made sweeter by supporting local breweries. Fran Caradonna understands the benefits of strong connections between brewers and the communities they serve. For more than 25 years, she has worked with some of St. Louis’ most prominent beer makers. Earlier this year, she was appointed chief financial officer and chief administrative officer of Schlafly Beer, but now, she’s making history as the family-owned company’s first female CEO. What sparked your interest in the brewing business? It wasn’t a career path I planned. I’ve always been a lover of good beer, but my background is in marketing, having worked in public broadcasting and advertising. My former husband went to work in the beer industry and launched a small distributor, The Signature Beer Company, in 1990. We actually helped Schlafly start selling its bottled beer in grocery stores in the mid-’90s. I started as a partner, but I was still working in advertising. When we had kids, I transitioned to full-time at Signature Beer. That’s how it started.

In 2000, you co-founded O’Fallon Brewery with your former husband. What was that experience like? It came about right after we sold Signature Beer in 2000. Initially, we did everything ourselves, so it was a small operation, but the brand grew as the demand did. It was a very exciting time to be in the beer business. We introduced the first IPA brewed in St. Louis before the style was popular. It’s so much fun to brew your own beer and share it with other people to enjoy. Distribution also has its perks, but there is something special about making your own product.

Why do you think St. Louis is a good home for breweries? The city has such a deep brewing history, so it’s the perfect place for people who love beer. Smaller, local breweries offer a unique experience, and customers respond to the opportunity to drink beer in the place where it was made. It’s been 28 years since the Schlafly Tap Room opened, and people love to come here, taste the beer and meet the people who brewed it.

You’ve worked with Schlafly in the past. How does that familiarity impact your new position? Tom Schlafly and I have known each other for as long as we’ve both been in the beer business. I knew him and Dan Kopman when they were first getting started, and when I worked as their distributor, I was part of their team. I came to staff meetings and helped grow the business. We’ve worked together

shoulder to shoulder, and I understand their philosophy. They have a history of serving St. Louis, and the company understands what it means to be a great employer and brewer. Knowing this, it was an easy transition to make. Leaving O’Fallon was hard because I helped found it, but both the company and I were in a position to move forward, so it worked out.

What are your goals for the company as CEO? I’m still getting started in terms of specifics. I’m in lockstep with Tom and David Schlafly’s philosophy of being a good corporate citizen and making great beer. I plan on continuing what we’ve done well for 30 years, serving the community and providing products people can enjoy.

What does working with and supporting companies like Schlafly do for the community? I think people should know their neighbors are making beer. There are nearly 70 breweries in the St. Louis area. You are bound to know someone who works for or with one of them, and

we support our community when we support local brewers. When we all work together, it makes everyone stronger and happier.

&

have your beer tastes changed?

Yes and no. I still enjoy beers that have a fresh taste (it really makes a difference), good balance and full flavor. Having said that, these days, I find I appreciate styles with moderate alcohol content more than their higher alcohol cousins.

when do you enjoy drinking beer?

Good beer is great with food, so I enjoy it with meals. But it’s also really fun to enjoy at outdoor activities and events … or by the fireplace in the dead of winter … at the beach or while fishing … at the end of a good day at work … or at the end of a bad day. It’s hard to think of a time that I can’t enjoy a good beer!

do you have any favorite foods you like pairing with it?

Burgers and pizzas, of course, but beer is a broad category, and I can always find a good option to pair with any dish.

REACHING OUT

USO MISSOURI:

to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation

by stephanie wallace PHOTO: COLIN MILLER OF STRAUSS PEYTON PHOTOGRAPHY

MEET VOLUNTEERS BOB & KATHY O’REILLY OF ST. CHARLES 〉〉 How long have you been a volunteer? BOB | I’ve been involved since I retired in 2006, and Kathy joined after she retired in 2013. What interested you in this particular cause? BOB | I’m a veteran, and taking care of our servicemen and women is important to me. I want to do whatever I can to give back and show them my gratitude. This work creates a passion in you that is hard to step away from. KATHY | It’s about what we can do to thank them for the

sacrifices they make for all of our freedoms. There is nothing like seeing their smiles and appreciation. If you can give them a little taste of home, even if it’s just by giving them a hot dog or soda, it makes it worth it. It’s very rewarding, and I’m happy to do it.

What kind of volunteer work are you involved with?

KATHY | We are part of the mobile unit. We have trailers

that we take throughout Missouri and parts of Illinois and Kansas. We cook for a variety of events, including homecomings, deployments, family picnics and morale boosters. We offer support at just about any activity that needs food and drinks. BOB | There are several events a year. Two years ago, the

organization was hosting around 275 annually. We pick the ones that fit in our schedule and try to go out maybe two or three times a week.

KATHY | When Bob got me involved, I was initially wary

about going out, but now, I just love it. He created a monster! It’s wonderful to go to different installations and meet the people. It’s just an amazing adventure.

If you could do anything for the organization, what would it be? KATHY | I would like to get the word out about what the USO does for our military. It’s surprising how often people don’t really know what we are talking about when we mention our work with the organization. I think everyone should know how it supports active military and their families. I want to spread awareness. BOB | So many people also don’t realize what the military

gives up as part of their service. They sacrifice their todays for our tomorrows. It’s awesome when you see how appreciative they are. A couple of hot dogs or some scrambled eggs and bacon may not seem like much, but it’s surprising what these little things mean to them. I would like to get out there and let people know.

&

BOB | We’ve made a lot of friends working with the USO.

A lot of the military members keep in touch, and sometimes they plan little events to say thanks for what we’ve done.

IN THE WORDS OF USO MISSOURI:

“Bob and Kathy have helped make it possible for us to support military members throughout our service area, which includes all of Missouri and parts of Illinois. They have been instrumental in helping to keep the USO machine running. We are lucky to have them as part of our team of volunteers!”

SPIRIT-FILLED KENRICK-GLENNON SEMINARY by stephanie wallace REGARDLESS OF RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION, we all can benefit from the spiritual

counselors who serve our community. Thanks to years of hard work and training, they have the wisdom and compassion necessary to advise and comfort during challenging times. Kenrick-Glennon Seminary has been helping form the religious leaders of tomorrow since the 19th century. With a rich heritage of philosophical, theological and pastoral service, the institution is dedicated to preparing students for ministerial priesthood in the Catholic church. The seminary has both graduate and undergraduate programs with a curriculum that focuses on the spiritual, intellectual, pastoral and human formation of its students to prepare them for all aspects of ministry. Along with courses in philosophy and theology, there are leadership classes and training in counseling and grief management. Seminarians also are assigned to parishes where they volunteer with youth ministries and teach classes. “Kenrick-Glennon’s mission is to create a holy, healthy, joy-filled parish priest,” says president-rector Rev. James Mason. “We want our students to become men who can speak the truth of Jesus Christ to the people in their parishes and all over.” Kenrick-Glennon supports its programs through its annual Convivium Dinner Auction, the seminary’s sole annual fundraising event. “Financial support is essential to our operations,” Mason notes. “The money raised at the event allows us to support future priests intellectually, psychologically and spiritually.” Funds go toward the annual operations budget and initiatives like the Kenrick Student Life Association and Cardinal Glennon College Student Activity Fund. It also supports the Spiritual Formation retreat program, which allows seminarians to prepare for their role as priests by participating in directed silent retreats. Convivium also allows Kenrick-Glennon to connect with the community, according to Mason. It brings together around 500 people, some of whom have

attended since the event’s inception 27 years ago. Seminarians volunteer during the fundraiser, giving those in attendance an opportunity to meet and connect with them. “Guests get to talk with our students and learn about their generosity in offering up their lives and service to the Church,” Mason notes. In turn, the seminarians are part of a welcoming, supportive environment. This year’s event is Nov. 2, and the evening includes dinner and silent and live auctions. Also returning this year is the Winner’s Choice Raffle, which is sponsored by the seminarians’ parents. The winner gets to choose from five vacation packages. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the event or in advance from Kenrick-Glennon’s website. To close the night, seminarians and priests will sing “Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen)” as they do every year. It is a highlight of the event, according to development director Kate Sauerburger. “It’s always one of the guests’ FA LL FU ND RA favorite moments,” she says. “Past attendees have told us that you can’t PR EV IE W IS ER help but feel the presence of God when they perform.” & SPEC IAL SECT ION

annual night for life gala meet the chairs

Co-chairs Julia Masetti and Joan Walsh

Why is this nonprofit important to you? The organization provides tangible assistance to women in real crisis by providing free pregnancy tests, free professional counseling, support services and referrals to other specialists—all of which enhance both the life of the mother and her baby. Throughout its 48-year history, Birthright St. Louis has cared for more than 200,000 women without preaching to or judging any of them. Its mission is one of love, hope and life.

What will this event accomplish for the organization?

The annual Night for Life Gala helps raise awareness about our services and raises funds to keep the four area offices staffed with licensed, professional counselors. With additional funds, we can expand our outreach and education programs to better serve the community and reach more women facing an unplanned pregnancy. Birthright does not receive any government funding, so we count on our generous supporters even for practical items like diapers, clothing, rent, tuition, etc.

about the organization

MISSION STATEMENT: For 48 years, Birthright St. Louis has provided free, professional counseling to pregnant women and new mothers. We support women in securing a safe, healthy and loving home for their babies. Women can choose life and be supported! We are non-political, non-religious and non-activist.

�5th anniversary caregiver awards luncheon meet the chairs

Co-chairs Nichole Huffman, Lynn Potts and Cindy Wilson

Why is this nonprofit important to you? After years of working in long-term care, we fully understand the importance of everyone having an advocate. VOYCE speaks for longterm care residents who cannot speak for themselves and advocates for those who need support. VOYCE has volunteer advocates and trained staff that assist long-term care residents, their families and the senior communities with issues involving roommates, family members or other resident concerns. VOYCE provides a neutral outlet and the tools to resolve these issues.

What will this event accomplish for the organization?

The 25th anniversary of the Caregiver Awards Luncheon creates public awareness for VOYCE’s role in speaking up for quality long-term care. It honors the unsung heroes who are the front-line caregivers in long-term care. These champions are delivering quality, person-centered care while respecting the rights of residents.

Shawn Saale, Board President Brian Scheidegger, Board Vice President Lincoln Gray, Board Treasurer Katie Hughes, Board Secretary

Event Details DATE: 2-9 p.m., Sept. 14 LOCATION: 370 Lakeside Park CONTACT INFO: duckfestmo.org

Why is this nonprofit important to you?

Emmaus does outstanding work, helping many adults with disabilities live like you and me. Duckfest is important because it reaches a diverse group of donors that otherwise would not be involved in fundraising for this special group of individuals. Efforts from waterfowl hunters, business owners, community leaders and the general population can make a real difference within our community. —LINCOLN GRAY

How did you first get involved?

Initially I became involved through my profession, which is providing estate planning advice to families with special needs children of all ages. I choose to stay involved because of the great people I’ve met, and I’ve enjoyed being a part of something positive that strengthens our community and helps others. The rest of the committee has one of those ‘the rest is history’ stories and resonates with the mission. —SHAWN SAALE

BRIAN SCHEIDEGGER, LINCOLN GRAY, KATIE HUGHES, SHAWN SAALE

What will this event accomplish for the organization?

First and foremost, this event is a great time for everyone. Duckfest not only raises money for a well-deserved cause, it also raises awareness about the many needs of adults with disabilities. It’s hosted in one of the top waterfowl hunting areas in the country, which provides an opportunity for all of us that share in this passion to conduct an amazing event that has something for everyone. —KATIE HUGHES

about the organization

MISSION STATEMENT: Compelled by faith in Jesus Christ, we enrich the lives of individuals of all beliefs and with cognitive or developmental disabilities by fostering independence, inclusion and self-advocacy.

Caren Vredenburgh and Jan Fitzgerald

Why is this nonprofit important to you? Gala VIII is our annual art show that celebrates the work of our participants who have been touched by cancer or other chronic illnesses.

Free art lessons are conducted both in hospital settings and in our studio location and are available to patients and those who care for them.

What will this event accomplish for the organization?

Funds from Gala VIII will support our new studio location and enable us to expand our services throughout the greater St. Louis community. Gala attendees will have the opportunity to acquire artwork created by our participants and to bid on several beautiful works donated by internationally known artists. A signed St. Louis Blues jersey, vintage St. Louis Cardinals sign and a weekend at Innsbrook will be available through auction.

epworth’s 17th annual wine dinner & auction meet the chairs

Co-chairs Jason Main and Gregg J. Berdy, M.D.

Why is this nonprofit important to you? I believe in giving back to the community by helping those who are less fortunate. Every year, nearly 8,000 children, youth and families turn to Epworth for assistance. By improving the quality of life for individuals in our community, we make St. Louis a better place to live. Co-chairing Epworth’s Wine Dinner & Auction is one way I can help make this happen. —DR. GREGG BERDY

What will this event accomplish for the organization?

This is the greatest fine wine event in the region, and there’s no other event like it in St. Louis. My dream is to see it continue to evolve as an opportunity for those who appreciate wine culture to give back to their city. Not only is it an amazing night of food and wine, the funds raised support Epworth’s programs that impact the lives of thousands of families in need. —JASON MAIN

The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra is a vibrant part of our community. With the start of the 140th season, we are celebrating the impact of our world-class orchestra and are filled with excitement to welcome new music director Stéphane Denève. Music is a universal language that connects us, from children attending SLSO education programs to promising young musicians in our Youth Orchestra to all of those who attend concerts.

Proceeds from the Gala Celebration and Nightcap provide essential support for the symphony and its 140-year-old mission to enrich lives through the power of music. In addition to remarkable concert performances at Powell Hall, the SLSO is an integral part of the St. Louis community, offering more than 250 performances that include free education and community concerts each year.

We are proud to be part of an organization that allows dynamic women to confront today’s most urgent challenges facing women, children and families in the St. Louis community. The local nonprofit landscape would not be what it is today without NCJWSTL. It pioneered programs that have evolved and spun off on their own, such as the Scholarship Foundation, Crown Center for Senior Living, Legal Advocates for Abused Women and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).

Couturier is The Resale Shop’s largest fundraiser of the year. All of its proceeds from sales are funneled back into NCJWSTL’s programs and projects. Money raised will support initiatives like preparing children to return to school with new clothes and supplies, educating people about human trafficking in Missouri, helping women gain financial independence and many more.

TREND REPORT fromL.A. by marylyn simpson

DISCOVER THE HOTTEST TRENDS HITTING THE WEST COAST WITHOUT LEAVING THE SHOW-ME STATE!

very vital It’s nearly impossible to keep up with all of the trends that permeate the health food stores of L.A., but there are a few worth exploring. I recently discovered Vital Proteins’ Coconut Collagen Creamer (say that five times fast!) and have replaced my trusty organic half and half with it. The benefits of this subtle switch are hard to ignore. Collagen’s amino acids help maintain healthy hair, nails, bones and joints while its 9 grams of healthy fat from coconut milk powder is a great source of lauric acid and medium-chain triglycerides, which can provide a nice energy boost.

underarm aroma dead decor Dried flowers are having a moment. From dried eucalyptus to craspedia, livening up your home takes little more than a vase of dead flowers. I’ve even noticed dried palm leaves, once green and now beige, seamlessly fitting into the home decor of those who prefer to keep their interiors as neutral as possible. It’s a budget-friendly alternative to the weekly fresh flower run and looks just as good (but lasts much, much longer).

oh my, tie-dye Tie-dye is the new neutral. A trend that seems to pop up in different iterations every five to 10 years is having a heyday in L.A. From Alo Yoga stores to the Stella McCartney runway, tie-dye is everywhere. But sporting the multicolor motif isn’t enough. Tie-dye parties are a trend in and of themselves. From personal experience to influencers like Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere posting about their latest tie-dye soirees, these multicolored extravaganzas are hard to ignore. So if your budget doesn’t quite allow for a pleated Prada midi-skirt, one afternoon with friends, a white skirt and some colorful dye should do the trick.

It’s not every day that I’m blown away by a deodorant. But one whiff of Schmidt’s Jasmine Tea natural deodorant during a trip to the goop store was enough to make me throw away all of my other ones. The light, perfume-like scent is anything but synthetic. Ingredients include coconut oil, arrowroot, shea butter, jojoba and vitamin E—nothing the average person can’t pronounce. It’s certified vegan, cruelty-free and gluten-free and is absent not only of artificial fragrance, but of aluminum and propylene glycol as well. Plus, there’s no baby powder smell found in many other deodorants and antiperspirants, which is reason enough to check it out.

more than milk Maybe I missed that day in science class, but I’m not sure what surprised me more—the fact that camels make milk or the fact that it can be purchased at certain L.A. grocery stores. Desert Farms camel milk is an alternative to cow’s milk that is both tasty and nutritious. Available in raw and lightly pasteurized options, camel milk tastes like regular milk (surprise) and boasts nutrients like vitamin E, zinc, potassium and selenium, to name a few. Working with Amish and family-owned farms throughout the country, Desert Farms is a small but mighty company that’s quickly changing the way milk is perceived and consumed.

JUDGING FROM THE POPULARITY of ancestral testing,

people certainly are interested in connecting with their heritage. For some families, that means enrolling the kids in, say, Irish dancing. For others (many others), it means recreating favorites from Grandma’s kitchen. But getting back to roots can be especially hard for some groups, like those historically displaced and decimated; think African Americans, American Indians and European Jewry. There may be precious little left to help them touch the past. That’s why I was so intrigued by the recent Celebration of Yiddish Culture held at Crown Center, a senior housing community in University City whose population includes many elderly, European Jewish immigrants. (Yiddish, the onetime universal Jewish language, is a dialect of German, but the word also is used to refer to the old village way of life.) The afternoon included Yiddish music, skits based on the traditions of Yiddish theater and a luncheon that underscored just how integrated Jewish food has become in America. Can you believe that as recently as 1960, only about 10 percent of Americans were familiar with bagels? (That’s according to guest speaker Margie Kahn, food columnist for the St. Louis Jewish Light.) And that’s just the most obvious example; Yiddish speakers also introduced America to knishes, challah, blintzes, rugelach and countless other starchy treats. But the sold-out crowd of 120 at Crown Center didn’t come only to eat. After all, there aren’t that many opportunities to hear sounds from their collective past—accents, melodies and phrases that connect them to long-gone relatives. The Yiddish language and all things related to it weren’t much in fashion during the decades when Jewish immigrants yearned to fit into their new homeland. They were busy shedding the old and exposing their families to all things American. Now, their offspring seek out bits and pieces of that heritage. What goes around really does come around. Seventy years after suffering unspeakable persecution and loss, ‘Yiddishkite,’ it seems, is coming into fashion. Klezmer bands (not necessarily ones composed of Jewish musicians) are performing in unlikely places, like the YMCA in St. Charles. These groups play the traditional Yiddish music of pre-war Europe. And the largest annaul Yiddish festival in the world takes place not in Brooklyn or Tel Aviv, but in Krakow’s former Jewish quarter, started in 1989 by two non-Jewish Poles. Back at Crown Center, there is a twice-monthly Yiddish language class, and the occasional Yiddish film with discussion afterward. This year’s Hanukkah celebration will feature a Klezmer band. So bit by bit, the progeny of European Jewry (and anyone else) can be touched by this particular ancestral past.

COVER STORY

FAMILY CARE

SSM HEALTH CARDINAL GLENNON CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL by stephanie wallace LIKE MOST TODDLERS, JAMIERSON MONTGOMERY loves singing along to music,

looking at Dr. Seuss books and playing with his mom, but unlike many of his peers, he has faced several serious health concerns. He was born with Down syndrome, club feet, obstructive sleep apnea and tetralogy of Fallot, a complex heart defect. Despite these challenges, Jamierson is thriving, thanks in part to the care he receives at The Danis Pediatric Center at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. The center, which also has a clinic in Midtown, provides pediatric primary care that supports the whole family to ensure young patients stay happy and healthy. Jamie Montgomery, Jamierson’s mother, says doctors from The Danis Pediatric Center started visiting him in the hospital not long after he was born. The care and attention they showed her son left a big impression, and she notes that the support has continued as Jamierson has grown. “The staff at the center doesn’t treat him any differently than other kids,” she says. “Doctors and nurses stop to laugh and play with him. It’s a breath of fresh air, and I can’t stress how welcome they make us feel.” Along with regular visits to the center, Montgomery receives support from Bridge4STL, a program that coordinates with pediatricians, obstetricians and social workers to help parents and combat infant mortality. Dr. Heidi Sallee, a SLUCare physician and the center’s medical director, explains that the program reflects SSM Health Cardinal Glennon’s mission to support the whole family. “We watch for postpartum depression in new mothers, offer assistance for families struggling with food insecurity or housing issues, provide resources to help develop parenting skills, and screen all parents for signs of domestic violence,” she says. “We want to be there for all patients as a healing presence.” The center provides care regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

SLUCARE PEDIATRIC NURSE PRACTITIONER BETH RHYNE WITH JAMIERSON AND JAMIE MONTGOMERY

To support The Danis Pediatric Center, St. Louisans can head fieldside to Kräftig Polo Club in Defiance on Sept. 21 for Glennon Gallop. “We could not do what we do without the support of this event,” Sallee says. “Plus, it’s really fun. How often do you get to watch polo?” Along with an exciting match, there are two unique experience options available. VIP guests gain access to a climate-controlled tent where they enjoy wines from A. Bommarito Wines, a luncheon catered by Bartolino’s Family of Restaurants, and live and silent auctions. The Field-Side Party offers a tailgate experience that includes live music from The Pickin’ Chicks, food vendors and a champagne toast on the field. In the past, funds from the event have provided new equipment, including vision screeners for children under age 5. This year, some of the money raised by Glennon Gallop will go toward a new space to support the clinic’s growth. The Danis Pediatric Center originally was designed to accommodate 5,000 annual patient visits, and that number has grown to 22,000 between its two locations. Being able to expand the center is especially exciting for Sallee because of her special connection with it. The center’s namesake, Dr. Peter Danis, is her grandfather. “It’s an honor to continue the work he started,” she says. “I love working here. It’s a fun, upbeat environment, and The Danis Pediatric Center really is a special place.” &

808 MAISON first impression » Remember the old Franco, with its exposed brick walls and

charming setting on the first floor of a Victorian walk-up? Well, 808 Maison has added an even better vibe to this spot, one that’s très Parisienne and totally fitting for a French bistro in the heart of Soulard. Even when the historic area is overrun by celebratory Cards fans after a game, 808 is a cozy (and quiet) haven of gourmet food and drink. The food is rich in the tradition of French cuisine, complete with inviting accompaniments and ever-present sauces.

Loup de Mer: Stuffed with a scallop-fennel mousse and topped with preserved lemon grenobloise sauce, shallots, capers, brioche croutons and micro cilantro

Wash It Down:

must try

About 10 boutique cocktails complement the wine list, including many that are French-inspired and built around ingredients like Chambord, Grand Marnier and absinthe. My 808 Sour ($10) was a fluffy treat that balanced whiskey, lemon and a delightful crema of whipped egg white.

FRENCH ONION GRATINEE ▶ $7

The veal stock set the tone with its deep, rich flavor. The soup avoided being too sweet, which can be a pitfall with the onions, and came topped with Gruyère de Comté, a French cheese made to strict standards.

BOUDIN NOIR SALAD ▶ $10 Bright and fresh with peppery arugula and a mustard vinaigrette, it was easily enough for two. It had well-balanced flavors; grilled red onion and Fuji apples offered sweetness to complement the savory, lightly pickled quail eggs and pistachios.

BURGUNDY-BRAISED LAMB SHANK ▶ $36

The large, hearty portion of bone-in meat is every meat-lover’s dream. It was perfectly roasted with a slightly browned crust on the outside and soft, tender meat underneath. The shank sat in its rich, dark cooking jus with delicious, tiny gnocchi, beautifully browned on all sides, bits of arugula and mirepoix (celery, carrots and onions).

MARSEILLE SEAFOOD STEW ▶ $30 The light seafood stew was perfectly creamy and laced with exotic saffron. It was very generously filled with shrimp, clams, mussels, monkfish, sole and more. A side of roasted root vegetables ($5) was delicious.

APPLE TARTE TATIN ▶ $7 Continuing in the strictly French theme, a handful of desserts maximized the cuisine’s reputation for rich sweets. This one had impressive layers of thinly sliced apples drizzled with caramel. My only gripe was the crust, which didn’t retain the flaky character of puff pastry. Here again, it easily would feed two.

overall » I really liked the ‘adultness’ of this place. The ambience had a fin de siècle character;

the menu was memorable and included seasonal items. I especially appreciated being served complimentary bread (so rare nowadays) and ample dinner portions with generous accompaniments. We needed a French restaurant in town, and this one is a perfect fit. A note: It adjoins the popular and rollicking Molly’s and is owned by the same team, John Rogers and Luke Reynolds.

END OF THE LINE

The William K. Busch Brewing Company has ceased all operations. The company was started in 2011 by BILLY BUSCH, great-grandson of AnheuserBusch co-founder Adolphus Busch, and was known for its award-winning Kräftig and Kräftig Light beers. Products will continue to be available at retailers while supplies last, which the company estimates will be through September.

HOMECOMING

A staple of the St. Louis dining scene is returning to its original stomping grounds. Balaban’s is moving back to the Central West End after almost 10 years in Chesterfield. Partners Brian Underwood and Steve McIntyre have sold the restaurant to local business owner Karen Helper, who plans to open up shop on Euclid Avenue—right across the street from where the original Cafe Balaban opened in 1972! Balaban’s on Clarkson Road closed its doors earlier this month.

Growing Strong BY JULIA M. JOHNSON

It can be hard not to get worked up over every bump, scrape or cold symptom your child experiences, especially if you’re a new parent. The good news is, you can be vigilant about your kid’s health without compromising your sanity—and education is the key, area doctors say. Here, they offer their views on vaccines, injuries and common illnesses so you can help your family stay healthy and happy.

Childhood Symptoms Figuring out the seriousness of a child’s illness or injury can be a bit confusing. Are those flulike symptoms really the flu, or is something more urgent going on? Washington University pediatrician Dr. Lisa Ryan says it’s always best to err on the side of caution, and parents should not hesitate to call a health care provider if they’re unsure what symptoms mean. With that said, a bit of practical knowledge can help you decide when medical attention is needed. Fever is a common symptom with many possible causes. “It’s a much bigger deal in infants than older children,” Ryan explains. “Up to 3 months of age, a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher is reason to seek medical attention. If an older child has a fever of 102 but is behaving normally, it’s probably not as much of a worry. But if the child has a 101-degree fever and is lethargic or not eating and drinking, then it’s cause for concern. And with a fever of 105 degrees or more, it’s definitely time to call the doctor.”

✪ Ryan says vomiting and loose stools usually signal

a simple stomach bug, but if they persist, it’s best to get medical help. Diarrhea that lasts more than five days, blood in the stool and newborn vomiting without diarrhea may be cause for concern.

Minor cuts and scrapes should be kept clean and covered with a bandage to prevent infection, Ryan advises. “The site should become less painful over time,” she says. “If there’s drainage, or if redness and tenderness get worse, seek medical attention. Kids’ symptoms can be very nuanced, so it’s best to have your child evaluated by a health care provider if you’re concerned. We tell parents that it’s never a waste of time to be on the safe side.”

OTHER SYMPTOMS YOU SHOULDN’T IGNORE: Bad headache Lethargy or weakness Confusion Widespread skin rash Neck stiffness Serious pain

KEEPING ACTIVE KIDS SAFE

If you’re like most parents, you want your children to enjoy playing outdoors and participating in sports. Kids benefit both mentally and physically from exercise, but unfortunately, it also brings risk of injury. Dr. Ryan Pomajzl, an orthopedic surgeon at SSM Health DePaul Hospital, says parents can teach their kids how to have fun without getting hurt. “These days, the majority of injuries are from overuse of certain body parts,” Pomajzl explains. “Many kids participate in a single sport for a prolonged period because they want to become good at it. In baseball, for example, they try to throw harder and reach higher pitch counts, which can lead to repetitive motion injuries. Parents should encourage kids to take time off, rest and try other activities that use different muscles.”

VACCINE ANSWERS

He says famous athletes often acknowledge that playing a variety of sports in school helped them stay strong as adults. “Using different parts of the body at different times is helpful,” he notes. “Children’s bodies are still developing, and their growth plates (surfaces at the ends of bones) are still open, so they can’t train like a 25-year-old can. If kids overdo it, there may be negative effects on their growth.” Even jumping on a trampoline can cause problems for small bodies. “Young children’s tissues aren’t made to withstand that kind of force or impact,” Pomajzl says. “They are more at risk, and injuries often happen when more than one child is on the trampoline.”

Dr. Sarah AuBuchon of Southwest Pediatrics says some states are seeing a recurrence of childhood diseases mostly eradicated through vaccination. “Measles is of particular concern,” she says. “It hasn’t become a problem in Missouri yet, but states like New York, Washington and California have reported cases. There have been more than 1,000 in the U.S. so far this year—more than we’ve seen in the past 20 years combined.”

He says during team practices, kids should do muscle conditioning exercises to increase strength and flexibility and reduce joint stress. Properly fitting pads and helmets are essential for bike riding and contact sports, and mouthpieces can help protect kids’ teeth on the playing QUICK TIPS field. “Ask your child’s doctor for information on TO AVOID INJURY: preventing damage to tendons, ligaments and Stretch. other growing tissues,” he says. “Inflammation Wear protective gear. can snowball, and surgery may become necessary. Stay hydrated. That’s something we want to avoid.”

She says the upswing is related to vaccine refusal by parents. “Many families think that because a disease basically has been eliminated, they don’t have to vaccinate anymore, but that leads to a false sense of security,” she notes. “Others say they want to practice a more ‘natural’ lifestyle, and they believe the body’s innate immunity is enough to protect their children. Unfortunately, it isn’t.” AuBuchon says an outbreak of mumps sparked concern a couple of years ago, and there was a spike in pertussis (whooping cough) about a decade ago. Now, she notes, pertussis vaccine is given along with tetanus shots, and the number of cases has declined as a result. She stresses that immunizations are critical to kids’ and communities’ overall health and advises talking with a pediatrician about any questions or concerns. Claims of vaccines causing conditions like autism have been proven false, underscoring the importance of proper education. According to AuBuchon, official guidelines on HPV (human papillomavirus) immunization have changed. Originally, the vaccine was intended for girls and young women, but it’s now recommended for boys and young men as well. The sexually transmitted virus can cause cervical, throat and other cancers that develop in adulthood. “It’s best to receive the HPV vaccine before turning 15,” AuBuchon advises. “This provides the highest immune response because the body can make more antibodies at that age.” Kids should receive a booster vaccination 6 to 12 months after the first. If the series is started after age 15, three shots are given over a period of six months. F10 |

What is measles?

It’s a highly contagious respiratory disease that can lead to pneumonia, brain damage, deafness and even death. Symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose, red skin rash, diarrhea, ear infection and eye redness. An infected person can pass the virus to others via breathing, coughing or sneezing. The MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine helps protect against infection. SOURCE: CDC

☛ DID YOU KNOW?

Each year in the U.S., 300,000 women are diagnosed with precancerous cervical tissue. About 11,000 of these cases are caused by HPV, and 4,000 women die from the disease. Cervical cancer used to be a leading cause of cancer deaths in women, but early screening and vaccination have made it one of the most preventable. SOURCE: CDC

BEAUTY at every age By Marylyn Simpson

NO MAT TER WHAT STAGE OF LIFE YOU’RE IN, A DEDICATED BEAUT Y ROUTINE WITH QUALIT Y PRODUCTS WILL HELP PREVENT AND TREAT SIGNS OF AGING, FROM FINE LINES TO DEEP-SET WRINKLES, AND MAKE YOU LOOK YOUR BEST. FIVE ST. LOUIS WOMEN REVEAL PRODUCTS THEY CAN’ T LIVE WITHOUT AND WHY.

20s

I have sensitive skin, so I use Cetaphil to wash my face morning and night. I just started using products by Dr. Barbara Sturm, and I’m obsessed! I use the Hyaluronic Serum followed by the Face Cream every morning, and my skin has been loving it so far. It’s a little pricey, but it’s supposed to fight wrinkles and signs of aging, so I’m all for it! KATIE LEONOUDAKIS OF KIRKWOOD

30s

I am a Clinique skin care junkie! The Clarifying Lotion is perfect after washing your face and before applying moisturizer. It helps with breakouts by clearing out excess dirt in your pores. It seriously works wonders! I also love using Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum with my jade roller to help prevent fine lines, wrinkles and my biggest battle: under-eye bags! ROSIE REDDELL OF CHESTERFIELD

40s

I use SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5 Refining Night Cream every night because it helps minimize my pores, reduces fine lines and evens out my skin tone. It leaves my skin feeling super smooth and supple. Neocutis Micro-Eyes Rejuvenating Cream is another product I use nightly. It helps with my crow’s feet, hydrates, reduces puffiness and refreshes my eyes! AMY LOLI OF CRESTWOOD

50s

First and foremost, I can’t live without moisturizer. My mom told me a long time ago that it’s the best thing for your skin. After that, it’s eyeliner and mascara, usually Maybelline or CoverGirl. DIANE SIECKMANN OF AFFTON

60s

I love the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask I found at Sephora. It’s a nice pick-me-up for my skin, especially when I’m traveling or stressed. PATTI BUELL OF WEBSTER GROVES

LOCALLY CRAFTED PHOTO: BILL BARRETT

BY STEPHANIE WALLACE

A remodel is an emotionally charged project

that challenges you creatively. But the end result is usually worth the effort—if done right, your home’s renovated spaces are more complementary to your lifestyle. For one University City homeowner, a substantial kitchen overhaul not only gave her a better functioning room, it also provided an opportunity to support local craftspeople. Forgoing national chains, she created her perfect kitchen with the help of St. Louis’ vibrant community of artisans. The home was constructed in the 1920s, and the last kitchen update had been done in the ’90s. The homeowner wanted to upgrade to a more functional, modern space while respecting the original design. To make her vision a reality, she hired Riggs Company for the project. The Kirkwood-based remodeling business has been family-owned for 60 years and currently is led by Amie Riggs and her brother, Bill. Amie notes they have a hometown advantage when it comes to working with older homes. “We were born and raised in the business and know a lot about how the city was built,” she says. “That’s a unique advantage of our longevity.” The homeowner wanted everything custom-built for the new kitchen, and Riggs developed a design that worked with the original floor plan, restoring flow that had been lost during earlier renovations. The company also kept everything on track.

“Without Riggs, I don’t think the remodel would be done yet,” the homeowner says. When plans for a custom-designed hood for the range fell through, the team built one from scratch. “It was a major hiccup and very stressful, but they swooped in and saved the day,” she says. “The hood they created is gorgeous and may be my favorite part of the kitchen.” Along with using local builders, the homeowner wanted to ensure each purchase for the remodel supported area businesses. New appliances came from Designer Appliances by Lemcke in Webster Groves, and light fixtures were purchased at Jon Paul Designs & Collectibles in Richmond Heights. The homeowner notes that the lighting is particularly special. The store owners found original 1920s fixtures and restored them for the project. She says it’s a unique touch that would have been nearly impossible to include if she had shopped at big box stores or online. “It’s beautiful lighting, and I got it from a local business just down the street,” she notes. “How awesome is that?” For the kitchen table, the homeowner knew exactly where to turn: furniture maker David Stine. His sustainable pieces have been featured in restaurants of local culinary luminaries like Gerard Craft and Matthew McGuire, but for her, there is a personal connection. “I’ve known David for a long time, and I purchased one of his first tables when he was starting out,” she recalls. “He’s incredibly talented.”

Before he was a star craftsman, Stine was a lawyer in Washington, D.C. He returned to his family’s farm in Jersey County, Illinois, to pursue his passion for woodworking. His handcrafted pieces use wood sustainably sourced from the family’s 500 wooded acres. “It’s very important to take care of the land and leave something for the next generation,” Stine says. “We don’t just harvest the best trees. Instead, we wait until things are at the end of their life cycle. I get great materials, and the forest is always rejuvenating.” For the remodel, Stine crafted a cafe table of light blonde wood to complement the dark walnut dining table he previously had built for the homeowner. “I don’t like the concept of ‘matching,’” he notes. “Beautiful, natural things always work together, either in harmony or as counterpoints.” The table’s design was kept classic and simple to reflect the homeowner’s desire to remain true to the original build date. “It’s invaluable to be able to showcase David’s work in my home,” the homeowner says. “I didn’t buy a table from some national chain. I bought it from a friend who can sit and visit with me at that very table.” With the remodel complete, the homeowner is thrilled with the beautiful results. “I was able to get exactly what I wanted while shopping local,” she says. “I couldn’t have asked to work with a better group of people.” & AUGUST 14, 2019

HOMEWORK

DEAR HOMEWORK,

Our family just moved into this ranch. We absolutely love the area and the totally renovated interior, but the curb appeal is lacking. This home previously was rented for more than 20 years, and now we want to give it the love it deserves. We have several projects in mind, including painting the exterior a tan/light cream to match the siding and windows, installing plantation shutters and perhaps a new front door, and entirely redoing the neglected landscaping. We would love your input and vision on these ideas and more! Sincerely, —POST-RENTAL REFRESH

DEAR POST-RENTAL REFRESH,

While I’m sure your house will look fine painted tan/light cream, I love the brick the way it is. I think it gives a nice, warm Frank Lloyd Wright feel, which is rare. I think your house starts out with several big advantages. First, I think a ranch usually looks best if it sits a little higher than the street, which yours does. It also is nicely framed by large pin oaks that aren’t too close to the house. And finally, I love the bold, horizontal striping on the chimney created by projected bricks. To get more mileage out of these features, I first would build a more impressive front door entry with a higher roof. This will be connected to new, low garden walls (with their own horizontal brick bands) and a spill of brick steps centered on the chimney. These additions will make the chimney part of a layered composition rather than an isolated object. A curved, exposed aggregate walkway further emphasizes this focal point. Additional architectural changes include removing the shutters on the left-side window, adding flower boxes, painting the wood trim a slate green, and adding another brick wall/light pier at the mailbox. Landscape changes include planting a birch and Japanese maple close to the façade, as well as evergreen trees at the left property line. The pin oaks get some ivy at their bases, and Liriope beds soften the curb line. Thanks for asking, —HOMEWORK
