As a boy growing up among the farmlands of Iowa, travel always tugged at Bill Bryson’s heartstrings. Lucky for us, when the Midwesterner left his roots to see the world, he took us with him. From A Walk in the Woods along the Appalachian Trail to the wild and wonderful Australian outback In a Sunburned Country, and even through A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bryson has given audiences a passenger-seat view into the funny and factual accounts of his journeys around the globe and his pseudo-trips back in time. Now, the acclaimed travel author aims to make us fall in love with One Summer: America 1927—the ‘coming-of-age season’ of our nation.

Pictured: Representatives of On the Run present the $53,000 check.
An Evening at Busch Stadium

Youngsters with emotional and behavioral issues at Edgewood Children’s Center. Kids with hearing impairments at Central Institute for the Deaf.

Summer is here. I know that not because of the magical June cloudbursts, nor the brilliant summer blooms. I know that not because of the smell of chlorine in newly opened pools, nor the waft of charcoal from a grill. I know it is summer because I am suddenly called upon to drive three over-scheduled children to various destinations all day, every day without the reprieve of an eight-hour school day. I am telling you there are air traffic controllers at Lambert who haven’t handled as many routes in a day.
Could there be a more appropriate first date for a pair of dyed-in-the-wool St. Louisans than attending a baseball game and cheering for their beloved Cardinals? Regardless of the score, things certainly turned out well for Caley Barnhart and Jack Lawlor.

For the past few days, it was hard to ignore the world of sports—even if you’re not a sports fan. Whether you like basketball or baseball, it was good to be a Cardinals fan this week: The Louisville Cardinals claimed the NCAA Men’s Basketball title, a game that became the most watched in 19 years. And of course, this week also brought us Opening Day at Busch Stadium, which, for Cardinal Nation, is an event in itself—and that’s a good thing because…well, you know what happened there.
If the good Lord were to give me one perfect day, it would be to have my father back, and the two of us would head to Busch Stadium for Opening Day. Alzheimers took him from us six years ago. The disease may destroy memories, but it won't erase a single second of the time the two of us spent at the ballpark together.
Following an engagement at Busch Stadium, a local couple welcomed guests to their wedding weekend with a Cardinals’ galvanized pail of game-day treats at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark Hotel.

Aren’t you Robert Duvall? St. Louis attorney Allen Allred gets asked that question a lot. Put their pictures side-by-side; and yes, they could be brothers! Some people, including comedian Jay Leno, believe the resemblance is uncanny. “The first time Jay Leno came to the Fox, he was standing with me and Bob Costas in the lobby,” Allred recalls. “So here I am, between Leno and Costas, and Leno looks at me and says to Costas, Isn’t this the guy who was Tom in The Godfather?” But their looks are probably where the similarities end.
