TRAVIS NOBLE is a graduate of the National College for DUI Defense at Harvard University, and he lectures at seminars
nationwide on DWI/DUI topics. He lectures all across the nation on the nuances and strategies involved in defending seemingly impossible cases. In short, when other lawyers want to find out more about how to defend their DWI clients, they ask for Travis Noble. Most importantly, he has a track record of successfully defending some of the toughest DWI cases in Missouri and beyond.

months of suspension, you don’t lose your license at all? making a deal for probation, you never get convicted? having a DWI conviction, your record stays clean? cutting bad deals, you get a vigorous DWI defense?
Many people who are charged with drunk driving just assume there is no way to fight it. They think the best they can hope for is a smaller fine or a reduction in the amount of time they lose their license. Sometimes, they are able to make a deal for probation instead of jail time.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK Barring any unforeseen circumstances, we are staying in our cute house in Glendale for a long, long time. I love it for so many reasons: it’s the first house my husband and I found together for our new family; it’s where we got married, where we’ve hosted countless parties, and where we will bring home our baby girl. But beyond the sentimental reasons, I do not enjoy the moving process. It never goes as planned, and I have too many stories to prove that. When house hunting, you always think you’ll happen upon your ‘dream home,’ but there are always must-haves you have to give up and at least a couple of renovations put on the ‘to do’ list right away. But some people love it. They enjoy the change and making a new space their own … many before selling and doing it all over again. More power to them! Our Fall Market Preview this issue features beautiful homes waiting for the perfect buyer. Or if you’re just looking to switch things up a little, it doesn’t always take a massive project. Our Picture This column suggests minor changes to transform a space. I loved so many of the ideas, I flagged them for my own house! There, of course, will come a time when you are ready to move on, and each room should reflect years of love for that special buyer looking for the dream home I mentioned above. This time of year, quite a few empty-nesters are wondering what they should do: stay put, downsize, finally move to the locale of their dreams? Our annual Where Our Grads Are Going column lists the universities where local students have landed. I’ve talked to many parents who recently did a college drop-off, and I can only imagine how hard it is letting go and accepting that life in your home will never be the same. So I’m going to enjoy every spill on our linen dining room chairs, every handle coming loose on our charming, original bedroom doors, and every piece of blue tile in our petite master bath. It is our forever home, but I know forever only lasts so long.

unwelcoming place for adults leaving prison. They are unequipped to navigate a system that is indifferent at best and openly hostile at worst. Concordance Academy of Leadership is dedicated to helping individuals, rebuilding families and strengthening the community by advancing the field of re-entry services. “Recidivism is the third greatest societal issue our country faces,” says CEO and president Danny Ludeman. “More than 100 million people are impacted by mass incarceration, but there is not a lot of understanding as to why the problem exists.” The academy currently works with men from prisons in Bonne Terre and Pacific and women from a Vandalia, Missouri, penitentiary. Each prison provides a list of candidates who are given the option to work with the nonprofit. Its holistic, 18-month program focuses on serving individuals in three core areas: behavioral health and wellness, education and employment, and community and life skills. Ludeman says the scope of services offered sets Concordance Academy apart. “A lot of nonprofits are doing wonderful work, but because of limited budgets, they only can address one or two issues,” he explains. “We offer 12 services to provide a comprehensive support system.” Services begin six months before release, and after the program is completed, participants retain their access to clinical and career services as alumni. Now, with two and a half years of operation under its belt and more than 300 participants to date, Concordance Academy has empirical evidence that its approach is working. The national average for recidivism is more than 70 percent within five years, meaning that for every 10 people released from prison, seven are arrested again. Ludeman says the academy set out with a goal of reducing that percentage by a third in its first three years, and he’s happy to report the nonprofit already has exceeded that goal. “Our success rate is actually a reduction in recidivism by 60 percent, and we’ll continue to get better,” he says. “We want to keep people from going back, and we’re seeing phenomenal results.” This fall, the nonprofit will expand its operations to St. Clair County in Illinois, and Ludeman says that is just the beginning of its growth. “We want to be in every state in 10 years,” he notes. “I believe St. Louis will be acknowledged as the city that cracked the code for reducing reincarceration rates. From partnerships with employers and housing developers to donations from businesses and individuals, the entire community has embraced us. This city is showing the rest of the country that the problem can be solved.” Concordance Academy’s annual gala is Oct. 20 at The Ritz-Carlton, and to celebrate the season, the theme is Hallow’s Eve Ball. Guests are invited to dress in masks and costumes and enjoy a spinetingling evening that includes auctions, raffles, dinner and live music. “We want to keep the event a little mysterious so people will come and see for themselves, but it’s always a great way to have fun and contribute to a phenomenal organization,” Ludeman says, adding that the Halloween theme offers more than just ghastly delights. “We’re putting on masks so our participants can take theirs off. They often feel like they have to hide their experiences because society doesn’t understand. We want to show that they can be themselves and still find support.” &

This ought to save serious drinkers a few seconds of the precious time they need to get right to the next beverage: Bourbon with the chaser built right in. Well, it’s still just the beer part of the chaser’s onetwo punch, if a chaser means you’re supposed to slam down a shot of the hard brown stuff and follow with beer to mellow it out, I guess. What’s the first part of the process supposed to be—pleasurable? After a slug of whiskey, even the toughest guys wince in pain, like someone just whacked them upside the head with a tire iron. You see, our town’s most-beloved ginormous south-side brewery and Jim Beam have collaborated on a beer called Budweiser Reserve Copper Lager, aged on bourbon barrel staves which, supposedly, create a toasted oak aroma. It also, according to a press release, features vanilla notes. One might expect that sensual feature in Breyers ice cream, not Budweiser … but what I know is that over the last 30 years or so, I’ve had plenty of Breyers to give me a respectable beer belly, but no bourbon or beer to give it that nice ‘finish.’ Copper Lager will be available through the holidays in special heritage bottles and on draft at bars.

He shoots, he scores! It’s always fun for Blues fans to watch a puck hit the back of the net, especially when it results in a win. And now, we all score! Ground has been broken—again—for the team’s new practice facility, a $78 million undertaking near Hollywood Casino that demonstrates just how important sheets of ice and Zambonis are to the metro. This won’t be enough ice to replace what’s disappearing from the polar regions every, say, 40 seconds, but it’s enough to encompass three indoor rinks and one covered outdoor rink. Officially called the St. Louis Community Ice Center, the complex also will include restaurant and retail space. Before the ‘official’ groundbreaking on this 25-acre, 277,000-square-foot dream come true, much digging and earthmoving already had begun, so a projected September 2019 completion date might be realistic. (Really?!) Anyhow, our perennial ‘maybe next year’ NHL Stanley Cup-hopeful club will get its new practice space, and the metro enough ‘rinkage’ to grow amateur and college hockey here. There will be room inside for Mercy sports medicine services and a 12,700-square-foot St. Louis Ice Sports Hall of Fame. In warmer months, the outdoor rink will double as a venue for more than 4,000 patrons to attend concerts, festivals and the like. Maryland Heights will own the complex; officials predict an annual economic impact of $20 million. Meanwhile, the Blues will kick in $100,000 of development funds for a Chesterfield rink project, as well as a $10,000 annual donation to youth hockey organizations.

Out on the northwestern end of U. City, at Olive and I-170, there’s been plenty of disagreement about whether to allow a deep-pockets developer to build a big-box complex like a (hush-hush) Costco membership warehouse in Ward 3, an area that’s puzzled real estate professionals and city officials for years. Meanwhile, residents and businesspeople fret. Public meetings in the Mandarin House restaurant’s banquet space have been so well attended that police have had to turn people away. Well, one shoe has dropped: The city’s tax commission has approved a TIF for the area, which would displace some homeowners, essentially evicting some, and interrupt business as usual for the predominantly Asian restaurants in the metro’s de facto Chinatown. Some also have criticized this as a big-money move that’s insensitive to race, given that affected neighborhoods are largely black. The next official decision rests on the city council’s shoulders. The $190 million mixed-use project—a big-box retail anchor, office space, apartments, maybe a hotel— stands to receive a 20-year, $70 million adjustment via the TIF plan. That’s tax-increment financing, which is like a business ‘paying it forward’—to itself. A TIF freezes property assessments, allowing owners to use the tax increases from development over a specified period to help finance a project. (Hmm. I think we need a TIF for our tiny condo that would allow us to get rid of it, plus some nettlesome neighbors, and help us build our own McMansion on the additional acreage, just for us. Yeah. That sounds like a plan.)

‘Meet the new boss/Same as the old boss’ … well, not so much in this case. TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. has laid off another 38 employees, bringing the number of St. Louis-area workers it has cut to 1,208 since its $4 billion buyout of Scottrade Financial Services last September. Remember them? Scottrade? It was a discount brokerage here that spent a whole bunch of money just to have its name attached for a few years to that big hollow building where the Blues and big name musical acts play. That ‘attrition’ rate is right on track for the corporation’s estimated 1,300 men and women, of an approximate 1,800 former Scottrade people employed in the StL, eventually to be ‘outplaced.’ Every now and then, you see PR from TD Ameritrade of Omaha, Nebraska, that it’s adding a few hundred workers here, scores more there. In any event, for anyone intent on understanding the word salad common to the language in financial reports, since the Scottrade acquisition, TD Ameritrade had realized about $212 million in ‘synergies’ through June. And since synergies are a good thing, it’s all good. Right? & TT TRIVIA | WHERE ARE COSTCO STORES IN THE METRO? LAST ISSUE’S ANSWER | LAST WEEK WE ASKED WHERE THE SWIMMING AREAS ARE AT CREVE COEUR LAKE MEMORIAL PARK. WELL, THEY’RE EVERYWHERE ... BUT NOT FOR HUMANS. THEY’RE RESERVED FOR FISH, TURTLES AND WATERFOWL. NOW, IF YOU OR YOUR DOG FALL OFF A PADDLEBOARD, YOU’LL HAVE TO TREAD WATER A WHILE BEFORE REGAINING YOUR FULL AND UPRIGHT POSITION.

ST. LOUIS 〉〉
The pitcher, who probably looks a lot like Adam Wainwright, is set to throw to a batter who has distinctly Asian features. Two Harry Weber bronzes, now being fashioned in the Lou, will be installed on opposite sides of the globe next year to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the sister-city relationship between Nanjing, China, and St. Louis—the pitcher to be in Nanjing, the batter probably in the Ballpark Village complex. This heavy-metal concept was the idea of TIM HERMANN , a lifelong St. Louisan and CEO of a locally based construction company. In 1979, St. Louis became the first U.S. municipality to formally establish a sister-city relationship with the People’s Republic of China. But first, we must introduce Hermann’s personal odyssey as an important thread that holds the tapestry of this story together. About eight years ago, he was chasing consulting opportunities and living in Shenzen, a city in southern China about as far from Nanjing as St. Louis is from NYC, when a woman teaching Mandarin said the equivalent of, “Have I got the girl for you!” Her sixth sense told her
that Jian Ping, a former teaching colleague, would be a good match. Hermann, intrigued, took her up on the suggestion and started texting using a translation app. Today, they’re engaged. He calls her JP, and she hails from Nanjing. Serendipity, Hermann calls it. “What are the chances of a St. Louis boy, living in a country of 1.4 billion people, meeting and falling in love with a girl from Nanjing?” It took a while to meet in person, but a certain spark transcended linguistic challenges and cultural differences. Many times they’d have a ‘third wheel’ along with them: a translator. Hermann is quite an accomplished lensman, JP is very creative, and photography has become a language they both speak fluently. While they were in town for a few weeks
last month, they set up a base of operations for her: JP is taking English lessons at UMSL and investigating volunteer opportunities. Meanwhile, Hermann checked in with Weber on how the baseball players are evolving. Weber had thought the original concept, a pitcher and catcher, was too static; a pitcher and batter would be dynamic. Weber’s work is in the moment, as anyone who’s been to Busch Stadium knows. His statue of our legendary No. 6, Stan Musial, is in full swing. Bob Gibson has just let go of a pitch. Ozzie stretches to snag one at short. Weber’s pitcher and batter don’t represent competition, but cooperating to play a game fairly, and well. Take the unique energy between The Lou and Chicago that baseball has helped keep humming: Without one force, we wouldn’t have the other. And a celebration of the sister cities’ 40th anniversary tips the cap to economic and cultural cooperation. After all, Hermann notes, a Nanjing representative suggested baseball as the connection, even though it isn’t common in China. It took Hermann’s personal brainstorm to bring a suggestion to reality. I guess we could call that serendipity. &

THE INSIDER A GLIMPSE AT WHAT’S GOING ON AROUND ST. LOUIS AND BEYOND. &
PATTY by patty hannum FULL DISCLOSURE: IT HAS BEEN A HELL
of a week, and I am heavily medicated. On Wednesday, I threw out my back, making it impossible to do anything other than stand upright. After two sessions of physical therapy, I now can sit and move. Then on Friday, while eating lunch, I broke a tooth right off, just like that, and now I am scheduled to get an implant. Those commercials you see on television are lies. It is not a one-day fix, nor is it only $99—and you do suffer in silence (though I might have the commercials for tooth implants and hemorrhoids mixed up. It is hell getting old.) And finally, I have the worst viral upper respiratory infection. All I can do is sit around and hack all day while watching MSNBC. For whatever reason, the constant talking makes me sleepy … except for today. The president has called someone else a dog. He has used the word dog as an insult before, but in this case, he was referring to Omarosa Manigault Newman. He also said she was mean and nasty. Hmmm. I think anyone who watched one episode of The Apprentice knows she is mean and a little nasty. I don’t really object to those adjectives because I’ve used them in this column to describe my own behavior, though I guess I would be a little peeved if the president said that about me. I object to the idea that being a dog is bad. Sure, I am no fan of Ted Cruz, who the president said lies like a dog, but can the president please stop picking on dogs? What have they ever done to anyone other than be faithful and loving companions? My family is a made up of dog lovers. I know I recently confessed that our dog Stella was likely trying to kill me. But that was written tongue-in-cheek. (Unless, of course, she has recruited someone to help her.) I digress. We’ve usually had two dogs at a time because we think it is nice for them to have dog friends and human friends in one house. That way, when we are out of the house, they can lie on the sofa and watch Animal Planet together while chewing up my husband’s topsiders. If you have two dogs, you are guaranteed that one will like you. In our house, Stella loves my husband and Stanley kind of likes me, even though I have to chase him around the dining room table so I can rub his belly. I do know, however, that whenever I am feeling down or sick or have dropped food anywhere in the house, both of them immediately come to provide me comfort and scarf up whatever they can. So insulting someone by calling them a dog just doesn’t make sense. Dogs are kind, loving, charming animals that care for their owners. Please, Mr. President, stop with the dog insults. Actually, stop with all of the insults, and can you please also stop ... Oh yeah, this column is supposed to make you chuckle, not get hot under the collar. So, my editor Karyn has a choice. She either can run this rather delirious column or perhaps she will decide to write in its place: “Patty Hannum is on vacation this week and will be joining us as soon as her meds wear off.” Good luck with that decision, Karyn!

TEACHING KIDS TO CODE The Spry Digital team is doing something new this year. We committed to working with the local elementary school near our office, Hodgen Tech. It started out as a school supply drive and quickly led to us sponsoring the fifth-grade class. The public school is focused on giving its students the opportunity to learn about computer coding. Spry Digital is excited about teaching kids to code, and we have discovered so many great ways to do it. We should encourage all students to learn about computer science and coding because it is a subject that touches all of our lives. The website Code.org reports that 58 percent of all jobs in the STEM field are in computing, but only 8 percent of graduates are in the computer science field. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that the projected employment in computerrelated jobs continues to grow. The other factor is that many occupations rely on technology and computer software, requiring employees to make informed decisions in their position. If we expose our children to the concepts of computer programming at a young age, they are more likely to pursue the field in college.
systematically and work collaboratively, skills everyone can benefit from in life. 3. madewithcode.com: Google took their Blockly tool and focused it into a learning tool for kids. It lets kids explore how to create projects using a drag-anddrop interface that shows coding concepts. 4. Khan Academy: It provides many courses to help kids with math, science, engineering, humanities and computing. They offer one with Pixar that walks you through how to create an animated film. If you are an educator and donâ€™t have a coding curriculum in place, consider building it into your plans this year. Organizations with tech teams should consider adopting a local elementary school to help mentor in the classroom. Encourage local schools, districts and state officials to support funding a computer science curriculum. Visit code.org/advocacy/statefacts/MO.pdf to learn more on how you can make a difference. Teaching kids to code will have a big impact on students, St. Louis and companies across the country.
There are many great tools available for free to teach kids to code: 1. Hour of Code: This nonprofit is dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools. They have a detailed curriculum for educators in K-12 along with ways to explore coding. 2. scratch.mit.edu: Created by MIT Media Lab, this free tool teaches kids to think creatively, reason

Exceptional education for children age 3 to grade 6 400 DeMun Ave. • Clayton, MO • 314.725.4999 • register at wilsonschool.com
It takes a village to raise a child, and Community School is our kind of village. The support we get is education at its best, and we have been so pleased by how prepared our older son was to tackle middle school. The school has provided a strong foundation on which our children can build their futures. Churchill uses research-based methods to help students with Dyslexia, ADHD and other Learning Disabilities reach their highest potential.
FORSYTH SCHOOL Forsyth has played an integral role in our lives. The unique campus provided a nurturing environment where all of our children established a love of learning. The foundation they received at Forsyth set them up for academic excellence as they transitioned to secondary school.

INDEPENDENT • COEDUCATIONAL • GRADES 7-12
From the time we walked in with a tiny newborn to our son's transition into preschool, the therapist, teacher and audiologist analyzed his needs and coached us on how to help him be the best he could be. We are so excited about his future and the daily improvement we witness!

CHRISTEN GOLTERMANN & PETER GROTE
JUNE 23, 2018
by julia m. johnson | photos by richard benkof & jon koch CHRISTEN GOLTERMANN SAYS A HAPPY CHANCE BROUGHT HER AND HUSBAND PETER GROTE
together—with a little help from family. Christen’s mom teaches preschool, and Peter’s sister had a child in her class, so the two women became friends. Later, they realized each had a family member who was single. “Peter reached out to me first,” Christen says. “Our first date was at Sasha’s Wine Bar in early 2017, and we hit it off. We laugh about that a lot; if it hadn’t been for our relatives, we never would have gotten together!” The pair became engaged several months later and got married at Ladue Chapel. The unseasonably comfortable weather in June was perfect for outdoor photos, Christen says. The wedding was followed by an indoor/outdoor reception at Deer Creek Club, including cocktails on the patio and a sit-down dinner. “Everything was very traditional, and the day went very smoothly,” Christen says. “We took pictures in the church’s garden, and the bridesmaids looked beautiful in their light pink dresses.” The groomsmen complemented the look in navy blazers and pink ties. The bride and groom commemorated the occasion with special love letters for each other, which they read before the ceremony. Their reception included live music by The Fabulous Motown Revue, and the dance floor was hopping all evening, Christen recalls. She says having a number of friends and family travel in from out of town made the day extra special. The couple’s original plan was to honeymoon in Bermuda, but when they arrived, the forecast was a week of heavy storms. “We stayed there for one night, but the weather was so bad that we decided to book a flight to South Carolina instead,” Christen says. “We ended up spending a beautiful week at the beach on Kiawah Island, where we found a resort that would take a last-minute reservation. Peter and I really enjoyed the lovely sunsets and great food, bike rides along the beach, and relaxing by the pool. We loved that it was close to Charleston, too.” Both born and raised in St. Louis, Peter and Christen recently bought a home in University City. &

LEARNING INDOORS & OUT: A COMMUNITY SCHOOL
T&S HOME + fall market preview
I will always have great memories of St. Louis because of the famous Davis Cup match I played there in 1982 against Mats Wilander of Sweden. It was one of the most memorable matches of my career. I’m glad I won’t have to play five sets and for six hours this time around at age 59, but I’m eager to get on the court and battle it out with the younger guys.” -JM
JOHN MCENROE burst onto the international tennis scene while still a student at Stanford University. In 1977 he broke through from the qualifying rounds to reach the Wimbledon semifinals. He turned pro the following year.
St. Louis is one of the best sports towns in the USA and is the hometown of Dwight Davis, the founder of the Davis Cup. We are looking forward to competing there again and to continue to add to the city’s tennis legacy.” -JC
JIM COURIER dominated the men’s professional tennis circuit In the early 90s, with a game he fashioned out of grit, determination and a punishing insideout forehand. He was the first in his class in which included Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi — to hold the No. 1 world ranking. In 2005, Jim was elected for induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
BEHIND THE EVENT
Playing in St. Louis in our event in 2016 was a lot of fun, especially having won the title beating one of my idols, John McEnroe, in the final. I’m looking forward to another great competition and playing in front of all the great St. Louis sports fans.” -AR
ANDY RODDICK was the top American tennis player for nearly a decade. He finished nine consecutive seasons in the Top 10 in the ATP rankings and reached No.1 in the rankings in 2003. Roddick, best known for his powerful serve, won the 2003 U.S. Open and reached 4 other Grand Slam Finals.
St. Louis is a really great sports town and the crowds they just had at the PGA Championship golf were amazing. I’m looking forward to competing there in front of all of the enthusiastic and energetic fans.” -MP
MARK PHILIPPOUSS is is a former world No. 8 singles player. At age 19, he became the youngest player to finish inside the top 50. Philippoussis reached the US Open final in 1998 and the Wimbledon final in 2003. He also won two Davis Cup titles with Australia in 1999 and 2003. Looking forward to playing in St. Louis again, ‘I love the energy and atmosphere that place brings to the court’
“Tennis is part of St. Louis’s history with local legends like Jimmy Connors, Ken Flach, Maria Steinbach, and Butch Buchholz all helping to make the sport famous. Tennis is a passion of mine. With the combination of fitness, health benefits, and the enjoyment I get from playing, I consider it the greatest individual sport. So, by being the title sponsor of the Champions Classic, we’re hoping to show everyone that St. Louis can support future major tennis events or even a regular tour event. St. Louis is a great sports city, this was illustrated by the recent PGA tour.” -FRANK TRULASKE

DOROTHY TOWN by dorothy weiner
I FIND FLOWERS UTTERLY FASCINATING —none more so
than water lilies, which seem to pop up from nowhere and float like large gems on top of water. So when a recent Missouri Botanical Garden Speaker Series presentation was about them (specifically the tropical ‘Victorias’ in its collection), I was probably the first to sign up. Two hundred other members also were interested, several of them with water lily-specific questions. Turns out they have been popular at the garden for some time: lily pools were first constructed there in the 1890s. Apparently, people came from all over to stand on the lily pads—it was a thing. Visitors just stepped onto them for the novelty of it! I learned that this showy plant’s underwater root system is really strong (and thorny, to ward off competing vegetation and herbivorous fish). Another revelation: Each plant is both male and female, and there are day bloomers and night bloomers. The speaker described the way one night bloomer, Victoria Cruziana, grows a female white flower the first night, and its sweet tuberose scent attracts an insect pollinator. The next night, the flower transforms into a purple-tinged male. Someone astutely asked how we can see the night bloomers. The answer: at evening events like the Whitaker Festival or Flora Borealis, or on cloudy days. As you can imagine, these big beauties were quite the attraction at London’s prestigious Kew Gardens during Victorian times, when they were brought in from exotic colonial locales. Subsequently, many perfumers have found ways to use their sweet scents, and, unbeknownst to me, water lilies are edible, even for humans. The young leaves and buds can be prepared as vegetables and the seeds ground into flour. If, like me, you never really noticed how different one species is from the other, now is a great time to visit the garden’s ponds. There are water lilies along the Linneas house and in the elegant Pring pond between the Climatron and the Spink Pavilion. In fact, the pavilion was dedicated to water lilies at its construction in 1917, when it served as the garden’s main entrance—a testament to the importance of this plant at the turn of the 20th century. George Pring, one of several botanists our garden pirated away from Kew Gardens, introduced 40 tropical water lilies during his 45 years here. There are so many varieties in our collection that the gardeners must pick and choose which to plant each year. We have the world’s smallest variety, the 1-centimeter Nymphaea Thermarum from Rwanda, and the largest, Victoria Amazonica from Peru, whose pads grow 10 feet wide! Can you imagine a lily pad the size of a table for 16? After the talk, I strolled around looking at the various water blooms and was fascinated all over again by their beauty and diversity. (I admit it. I seriously wanted to step on them. More than once.) There were white ones with purple tips, pink ones with yellow centers, periwinkle ones with red leaves … but there’s really no way to do them justice with mere words. You just have to see for yourself.

COMMUNITY SCHOOL STUDENTS LEARN TO CARE ABOUT THE NATURAL WORLD.
Yourself in Contrast
OUT & ABOUT COMMUNITY SCHOOL by julia m. johnson HOLDING AN INSECT IN YOUR HAND is a much more powerful way to learn about it than
looking at a picture. Seeing, touching and drawing a plant can help you understand it more fully. Community School believes that immersing yourself in how things work is the best way to retain what you learn, and it applies that hands-on approach to its entire curriculum, says head of school Bob Cooke. The independent school in Ladue, founded in 1914 by a group of area moms, serves students age 3 through sixth grade and teaches them to view nature as the ultimate classroom. “We are all about active, experiential learning,” Cooke says. “The school is situated on 18 acres of land with fields and woods, and there are deer, owls, hawks, rabbits and other wildlife on the property. Science classes perform pond and stream studies to learn about the life cycles of creatures like frogs, and English students spend time journaling outdoors. Our P.E. classes get exercise in the fresh air, and art students draw, paint and gather inspiration from being outside. Even our math classes have outdoor sessions.” At Community School, caring about the planet becomes second nature for students. “We often hear them talking excitedly about tadpoles or bugs they found at recess,” Cooke says. “They love to spend their free time observing. Even playtime has an educational component here. We think the spirit is nurtured in every way by exposure to the outdoor world.” This year, students are actively involved in a campus program to replace invasive plant species with native ones. Cooke says research has shown that students retain knowledge better when they learn with all of their senses and when they have unstructured time outside. This approach also helps them develop problem-solving skills and make new friends. “These days, kids are indoors so much on computers and playing video games,” Cooke notes. “We teach them about technology, of course, but free time outdoors is essential as well. Adults are supervising, but kids know they can run and play—just like childhood used to be.” The school’s student-teacher ratio is 7:1, which means each child receives individualized attention. Need-based financial aid is available to families who qualify, and on-campus after-school and summer camp programs are popular. Since the campus is secluded and safe, parents can feel comfortable dropping off their children each day, according to Cooke. Community School tracks its standardized test scores against those of other schools, and Cooke says the results are rewarding. “Our students tend to score higher than those at other private schools,” he notes. “That’s a testament to our educational approach. The way we teach kids allows them to achieve to the fullest.” And because the school is independent, it isn’t beholden to a school district or diocese. “We have a board of trustees and are accredited by regional and national associations, but we create our own curriculum and decide how we’ll teach it,” Cooke explains. “That puts the power in the hands of the educators, who love being here and understand the needs of our students.” &

J. DEVOTI TRATTORIA first impression »
Anyone who went to Five Bistro knows chef Anthony Devoti has talent. He’s strictly farm-to-table, including butchering his own meat. Devoti now has made his popular Hill spot more casual, with a more ‘accessible’ menu—it went from a mostly prix-fixe spot to someplace you can get a burger or pizza (a tasting menu still is available for $65). The ambience, redone in shades of grey and warm woods, is appealingly intimate.
Wash It Down:
The drink menu is still top-heavy with wines (mostly high-end ones), but there is a handful of draft and bottle beer, as well as a half-dozen designer drinks. The sparkling cocktail ($9)— made with Blanc de Blancs Champagne and Rossa Amara (60 proof blood orange liqueur)—is delicious: effervescent and slightly citrusy thanks to a large orange peel twist.
must try THE PIZZA ▶ $16
Crusts here are fabulous: thin and crisp with homemade tomato sauce and gourmet toppings that change seasonally.
THE BURGER ▶ $17
Made with house-ground pork, beef and lamb, it's like eating gourmet meatloaf on a bun (focaccia, naturally). House-smoked pork belly adds extra fat to an already complex blend of hearty meat flavors. And a slab of imported camembert takes it to another level with creamy pungency. Topping it all were sprouts and a fried egg.
HOUSEMADE BREADS ▶ $5; A plate of focaccia and crusty wheat bread with olive oil and herb butter, all fresh and delicious.
ROASTED BENNE’S FARM CHICKEN ▶ $20
Served in pan jus, this tasted like great chicken should: meaty, juicy and with a wellbrowned skin that added crunch and a little fat to each bite. The gravy was slightly thick and glistening, and it completed the goodness of the comfort food dish.
MONTAUK N.Y. SCALLOPS ▶ $24
Good scallops need only the simplest of treatments, which is what these bivalves got. Seared for a slight crunch and an appealing brown color, they came with a caper lemon sauce that brought out their creamy, natural sweetness.
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES ▶
While the humble chocolate chip cookie may not be everyone’s idea of a decadent dessert, the ones Devoti brought us off the menu were delicious in every way: buttery rich, slightly salty and oozing with warm chocolate.
Cheese Tortellini with JT Gelineau oyster mushrooms, spring onions, roasted tomatoes and chicken broth
I love this place for its dedication to quality. Whether it’s a burger or bistecca alla Fiorentina, you are getting great food. And the environment is more intimate than bustling, bar-centered places—perfect for a quiet evening out. There are only about a dozen tables in the dining room, plus some high-tops in the bar, so call for a reservation on weekends.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WHO DID WELL AT THE RECENT ST. LOUIS REGIONAL.
The humble frank has found a home in U. City with the opening of Mike’s Hot Dogs Soups & Sandwiches on Olive Boulevard—and at affordable prices. The menu by chef-owner MICHAEL EAGAN has 11 types of dogs between $6 and $7, including a vegan version. Eagan has had stints at Cardwell’s in Clayton, Park West Grille and Kirkwood Brewhouse.
CHEESY CHIC Earthbound Beer, the
Cherokee Street brewery that closed its Mothership barbecue concept in June, has replaced it with a new menu inspired by 1970s-era tiki lounge food. The main item is the Musubi Sandwich, a Hawaiian dish that includes Spam, sushi rice, furikake and nori. It also comes vegan with grilled, marinated tofu.
CHANGE OF HANDS
The popular Cherokee Street restaurant scene has lost an establishment, but it’s quickly gaining another. Vista’s last day in business was Aug. 18, but the space is being taken over by chef-owner ARI JO ELLIS of The Cut, a nearby sausage eatery. Ellis plans to open Morning Glory in the former ramen hot spot, offering affordable, greasy spoon dishes in the morning and afternoon to start.
AN ASPARAGUS A DAY
We recently reported that Clementine’s Naughty & Nice Creamery landed a spot on national TV because of its barbecue-flavored ice cream— complete with chunks of meat— but now the St. Louis-based business has come up with something even stranger. On a dare from Angie Eckert, Clementine’s owner TAMARA KEEFE used a surplus of asparagus from Eckert’s Family Farms to create a new flavor called Asparagus Agave Quinoa. Talk about eating your veggies!
The new schedule of events certainly was controversial, but bottom line: attendance was up 4 to 5 percent! Most of the out-of-towners liked the earlier finishing time because it gave them a chance to explore the city. When playing in Swiss team events, game hands often decide the outcome of the match. Can you see how with this month’s hand?

AN ENTERTAINING GUIDE TO ENTERTAINMENT
There’s a definite gimmick behind Searching, and it’s not even really a new one. The action of the film is confined to what the main character sees through his computer. Using a small screen to craft a big screen experience is hardly a novel idea. Found footage has been a staple of low-budget filmmaking for years, and it’s essentially an older brother to the computertethered internet thrillers that have been popping up recently. Thankfully, Searching rises above cinematic contrivances to deliver a well-executed, engaging story, anchored by an excellent performance by John Cho. The computers at the film’s center belong to the Kim family. David (Cho) and his teenage daughter, Margot (Michelle La), are still recovering from the recent loss of Margot’s mother to cancer. When Margot goes missing after a late-night study group, David decides to search his daughter’s laptop for answers. Searching seems designed for audiences to sleuth alongside the protagonist. You see all the clues as he does, the action is tightly confined, and there is a very limited pool of suspects. It gives the movie an almost interactive feel. As fun as it to play digital detective, what makes the story standout are its human elements. The film’s first scenes play like an internet version of the heartbreaking opening montage in Up. Later, David and Margot’s grief and the strain on their relationship are felt through every unsent text or awkward pause during a FaceTime call. It highlights how a genre that is mostly used for quick scares can tap into deeper emotions, which shouldn’t be surprising considering just how much we connect with others through technology.

Personal care, because we care.
efore opening Nouveau, A Boutique Medspa in Kirkwood two years ago, owner Carol Anderson worked for more than 30 years as a registered nurse. Ten of those were spent in aesthetic medicine under the direction of a plastic surgeon, during which time she was fully trained on laser and injectible skin treatments. Four years ago, she became the first registered nurse in Missouri to become a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS). While her experience is vast, she and her highly skilled team at Nouveau practice regenerative skin care, using tools and techniques that encourage the body to regenerate and restore itself as a primary source of enhancement. “The skin is the storyteller of what is going on in the body,” Anderson says. “Your face is your calling card. It’s out there all of the time.”
Nouveau focuses on what Anderson refers to as “inside out beauty.” When patients arrive for an initial consultation, a CANS specialist assesses the condition of their skin, as well as other factors such as hormones, sleep, hydration, diet and exercise habits for a more holistic view of health. External factors, like how a patient is protecting his or her skin from the environment, also are considered. “This has been a year of harsh weather,” Anderson says. “It was severely cold, we had a crazy spring that was cold and wet, and then it quickly got very hot. That’s really hard on people’s bodies and their skin.” One of the most popular procedures Nouveau offers is Forever Young BBL photorejuvenation. This broadband light treatment has been used for years to treat both red and brown skin

pigmentation. About six years ago, physicians noticed that people who received these treatments also saw better overall skin condition. A study showed that BBL treatment causes the cells to produce more fibrin, collagen and elastin—all of which make skin appear more youthful. “It actually turns the clock back,” Anderson says. “It’s one of our favorite treatments because once patients are rid of their hyperpigmentation or broken capillaries, their skin looks better immediately. There is little to no downtime.” Anderson notes that it’s important to set up a long-term skin treatment plan that includes multiple modalities to address different issues or one issue from several angles, as well as one that gets people in the habit of proper at-home skin care. “It’s almost never just one or two treatments to correct a lifetime of damage,” she says. “We have to put together a plan to undo it over time.” SEPTEMBER 5, 2018 | townandstyle.com
A CLEAR OUTLOOK BY RICK STOFF
It was love at first sight. They only have eyes for each other. Her life passed before her eyes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. There are countless phrases that highlight the importance of the eyes—after all, they are the windows to our souls. Yet people often overlook their care. Set your sights on keeping them healthy with regular exams and proper maintenance.
A CLOSER LOOK Annual eye examinations are recommended for children and adults, especially if they wear contacts or eyeglasses or have a family history of diseases that can affect vision, says Dr. Janae Kadlec, an optometrist at Eye Care Associates of St. Louis. While many don't receive regular exams because their vision is not causing problems, Kadlec stresses the importance of checkups for early detection. "For most adults, we recommend an annual exam, but there are situations where you could go every other year if you don't have a lens prescription and don't wear contacts,” she says. “We like to see anybody who wears contact lenses every year to watch for related health problems. We also check the fit of the
SEPTEMBER 5, 2018
lenses and make sure the prescription is correct.” Children should receive eye screenings in their pediatrician's office until they reach school age, Kadlec says. "We recommend a general screening at 6 months and another at age 3 to rule out things like lazy eye or eye turns and to make sure pupils look normal,” she says. “The earlier these problems are addressed, the better the chance of having them fixed or strengthened so kids can be successful in school. At least 80 percent of learning in the classroom involves the eyes, so proper vision prevents delays in learning." Kindergarten should prompt the first annual examination by an eye doctor. "We look at distance and near vision and examine color and depth perception and eye muscles,” Kadlec explains. “Some research has shown that a basic screening can miss about one-third of vision problems because kids don't know what they are supposed to be seeing or are used to using one eye to overcompensate for the other.”
HEALTH & BEAUTY
SURGIC AL PRECISION: L ASIK The first eyeglasses were invented in Pisa, Italy, more than seven centuries ago, making it possible for people to correct bad vision with ingeniously shaped disks of glass. Now, Lasik offers surgical correction for visual deficits. It is estimated that 800,000 to one million people will undergo Lasik in the U.S. this year. "We started the first clinical trials for Lasik in 1988,” says Dr. Jay Pepose, an ophthalmic surgeon at Pepose Vision Institute. “It's what we would term a mature surgery now." Lasik revolutionized human vision by providing a means of correcting, rather than working around, an eye defect. The procedure permanently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear covering of the front of the eye, by using the heat of a laser. Images are then better focused on the back of the eye. For today's baby boomers facing the normal age-related decline in visual acuity, Lasik is safer and vastly more accurate than in the past, Pepose says. "It is a very different procedure now,” he explains. “Before, we used a microkeratome, an instrument with an oscillating blade, to create a flap over the cornea. Now that is done with a laser, which allows us to program many aspects of the flap more precisely and has helped in terms of safety and recovery. There are complications in less than onetenth of a percent of procedures. The most common side effect is transient dryness until the nerves grow back, which takes a few months. People may have to use artificial tears."
800,000 TO ONE MILLION
PEOPLE WILL UNDERGO L ASIK IN THE U.S. THIS YEAR. Accuracy also has been enhanced, Pepose says. Measurements are taken with WaveFront-guided treatment, which creates a 3-D map of the eye so the laser can accurately reshape the cornea. As a result, Pepose says, "Most people's vision turns out better than what they had with glasses or contact lenses.” A recent study found that patients who had undergone modern Lasik had better night vision and fewer problems driving at night than those who wore contacts or glasses. In St. Louis-area practices, Lasik for both eyes costs around $6,000, and many companies offer financing. "Most people spend money every month for contact lenses and solution, and glasses can cost $300 to $400 a pair,” Pepose notes. “Over 15 to 20 years, Lasik can be cost-effective in the long run."
EYE FOR FASHION If you must wear glasses, you might as well look good, too. Eyeglasses can be both a fashion accessory and a visual aid. Trichel Vahey, an optician at Eyewearhaus, says some patients have eyeglasses to match occasions and activities. "You might have a graband-go pair, but then have another for things like weddings or a night out. It's like jewelry for your face," she says. Eyewearhaus stocks several thousand frames, Vahey says, but some may not work with certain lens specifications. "We look at the fashion aspect, but from the optician's standpoint, it also has to be a good fit for the prescription," she notes. Next on the checklist is determining what the patient needs. “If you spend a lot of time in front of a computer, there are certain types of lenses, treatments and coatings that lend themselves to protection," Vahey says. "If you are outdoors a lot, certain lenses can cut down on eye fatigue and sun exposure.” Many find eyeglasses so flattering that they wear them even when a prescription isn't required. Either way, Vahey says she is brutally honest with clients. “That's what opticians do—we frame-style you," she says. “Time and time again, patients thank us for helping them through the process and not letting them leave the shop with something that isn't cosmetically appealing.”
EYE DISEASES Regular examinations can reveal the early stages of eye diseases, which we typically can't detect on our own, Kadlec says. GL AUC OMA A condition of increased pressure in the eyeball, causing gradual loss of sight ▶
The risk increases as you get older.
It can damage the optic nerve and cause blindness. ▶
A lot of people don't feel the pressure or know something is wrong. ▶
MACUL AR DEGENERATION The leading cause of severe, irreversible vision loss in people over age 60, it occurs when the small central portion of the retina, known as the macula, deteriorates. ▶
It can cause blindness in adults.
Kadlec notes that risk indicators can be detected in younger adults. If caught, deterioration can be slowed and more significant problems can be avoided. ▶
HOW TO C HOOSE THE RIGHT FRAME: Highlight your natural features, like skin tone and the shape of your face. Get a frame that is the opposite shape of your face. ▶
For a very round face, choose a rectangle.
If you have a heart-shaped face, pick a cat-eye.
For the most part, a square frame will not complement a strong jawline. ▶
RECTANGLE GL ASSES
CAT-EYE GL ASSES
Exams are needed every two years if risk factors are known. ▶
UNDIAGNOSED DISEASES affecting other parts of the body often are discovered during eye exams as well, Kadlec notes. "The eye is the only place in the body where we can look directly at blood vessels and nerve tissue and get clues about health without an invasive or more involved procedure," she says. Eye doctors can find evidence of: ▶

Just more than a year ago, we moved into this home knowing we needed to address the front. It’s a long house with tall, skinny columns on a porch that needs to be wider to protect the front door from scorching afternoon sunlight! Additionally, we have a big front yard that we would love to incorporate into the look of the home. We are open to all suggestions and greatly appreciate your thoughts! Sincerely, —BLINDED BY THE LIGHT
DEAR BLINDED BY THE LIGHT,
I am familiar with your home from seeing photos online before you bought it. It has an interesting brick-walled entry court with a parking area at the left of the image. I would like to enhance this feature while also modifying the front porch to address your issues. Homes of this era often adopted a mild Art Deco feel by using features such as the super-thin columns seen here. By doubling their width and adding a balustrade balcony, this prominent element looks more appropriate, and the balcony will provide more effective shade than making the upper roof deeper would. The shutters have been made much wider as well to fit the scale of the existing windows. Next, I would like to upgrade the plantings around the arrival court. The most important feature is the addition of two shade trees at the corners of the brick garden wall, which will act as giant parasols shading the court from the setting sun. Formal plantings are deployed both inside and outside the court to add detail, charm and architectural power to the existing symmetrical composition. A large flower urn centered on the front door adds the finishing touch. Luckily, the aesthetic modifications also help with the baking sunshine. These are fairly modest changes, but I think that’s all that is really needed. Thanks for asking, —HOMEWORK

SMALL CHANGES, BIG IMPACT〉〉 In life, sometimes it’s the small things that make the biggest difference. The same is true for your home. Rather than wait for a large-scale renovation, consider minimal changes here and there that will transform each space into something you love.
Curb appeal is everything. Upgrade the paint on your front door, rails and planters to a high-gloss black.
Combine photos and small pieces of art creatively on a blank wall in your house.
Everyone young and old will be wowed by this bunk bed; some kids might even abandon their rooms for the top spot!
Add history and charm with antique or reclaimed doors for a closet, pantry or bathroom or simply add on the sides of an opening.
A hot trend is the plunge or cocktail pool; since it’s small, it can fit anywhere and is meant for a quick cool down.
Applied molding painted in a contrasting or similar color to walls is a simple fix for instant design.
A ho-hum bathroom can get the ‘wow’ factor with bold wallpaper, even from just the chair rail up.
Ever dream of having an upstairs laundry? Transform a spare closet!
Freshen up the paint on exterior trim; try a soft blue or green with a white or brick house.
Add an outdoor component to a chimney that backs to an outdoor space.
Replace the old marble on your fireplace surround with tile to match your decor.
Get a new look by darkening, painting or bleaching your hardwood floors.

BLOG OF… LIVING ROOM REVEAL designer ▶ jesse bodine Out of all of the rooms in this St. Louis house, the living room was probably one of the most intimidating spaces for our clients. They don’t consider themselves overly formal people, but wanted to make sure they were utilizing every square inch of their home to fit their lifestyle. While they understood the value of a ‘formal living room’ as a space where they could entertain friends without being distracted by the TV, they also wanted it to fit their more casual style. It needed to be a space where even the kids could enjoy hanging out. The living room is one of the first rooms people see when they walk in, and we loved the idea of drawing guests in while learning about the family who lives here in the process. We replaced the navy walls with Benjamin Moore’s London Fog. Don’t get us wrong, we love a dark color on the wall, but we needed this space to feel brighter, and the new gray color accomplished that. We started with one of our favorite rugs of all time, the Anastasia Slate. The colors in this rug are beautiful, and its distressed/over-dyed look make it a top choice in homes with kids or pets. This is because it is incredibly resilient and hides dirt and stains exceptionally
well. We chose to go with two Chesterfield club sofas with nailhead trim to serve as the main seating. We balanced them with two leather channeled chairs because we didn’t want a room that felt too traditional. The clean midcentury lines and soft camel-colored leather on the chairs add interest and elevate the feel of the room. The coffee table serves as an anchor to all of the pieces. Its curved lines allow everything to revolve around it during a get-together. This is also one of our favorite pieces to use in a kidfriendly area. Its soft edges make it the perfect place for children to gather while sitting on the floor to play games or do a puzzle. The bookcases create a backdrop for the room, providing the perfect space to display accessories and personal mementos. We left them in white to keep the focus on all of the special pieces that our clients have collected over the years. By keeping in mind this family’s personality, we were able to make a formal living room that is perfect for both company and their fun family of four!

FROM THE GARDEN

ZINNIAS SAVE THE DAY 〉〉 IF YOUR GARDEN IS ANYTHING LIKE MINE, it’s
You can start zinnias by seed indoors four to six weeks before the last average frost date for your zone, or wait and sow them directly in the garden when the weather warms. It’s an incredibly easy plant to grow from seed— great for children and beginning gardeners—or just pick up a six-pack. In fact, I plant zinnia seed directly in the soil successively every two weeks in patches at Moss Mountain Farm (Zone 8a) through August to ensure plenty of blooms in early fall and through October. The only disease issues to watch out for are leaf spot and powdery mildew. The main culprits are too much water, high humidity and poor air circulation. During the height of summer, water at the base of the plants so leaves remain dry, and let the soil dry between waterings. Discard brown, fallen leaves, and space plants with enough room for good air circulation. If necessary, treat affected plants with a fungicide such as Neem oil.

starting to show a little wear and tear, responding to the extremes of summer. The bloom is off my roses—literally— and most other flowers in the garden are a little crispy around the edges. Everything, that is, except the zinnias. Zinnias are one of those rare flowers that laugh in the face of heat and drought and put on a colorful, glorious display. Their large, petaled faces come in all shades of pink, yellow, orange, red and purple, and the pigments are rich and clear. This bold annual has been in cultivation for hundreds of years and originates in the southwestern United States, Mexico and Central America, which explains why it’s such a great performer in hot, sunny locations. Flowers last for such a long time in pristine condition that zinnias are sometimes known by the common name ‘Youth and Old Age.’ They can be anywhere from 6 inches tall to an impressive 4 feet! And butterflies? Zinnias attract them like moths to a flame.

SOME OF MY FAVORITE VARIETIES: State Fair: The classic zinnia and my gold standard variety, these plants reach about 2.5 feet tall, and flower heads are an amazing 5 to 6 inches across. Thumbelina: A true dwarf at only 4 to 6 inches tall, it’s a great selection for the front of a border or as part of a container display. Benary’s Giant: The go-to zinnia for the cut flower industry, it has luscious, dahlia-type flower heads and extra-sturdy stems. Plants reach about 3 feet tall with blooms 5 inches wide. Magellan: Considered a dwarf variety, it reaches 12 to 14 inches tall with double flowers. This variety has a tidy, uniform growth habit, so it’s perfect in containers and window boxes.
Profusion: Exceptional disease resistance and a compact, uniform habit make this another popular variety. Plants reach about 18 inches tall and can spread to about 18 inches wide. A great selection for planting en masse. Zinnia angustifolia: Also known as creeping zinnia, this plant features narrow leaves and often is used at the front of a border, reaching about 12 inches tall. Cut and Come Again: These 3-foot-tall plants feature double blooms about 2.5 inches wide. And as the name suggests, they make great cutting flowers, producing new flower buds throughout the growing season.
