Chef Pierre Chambrin has had a storied culinary career. Trained at Ecole des Metiers de L'Alimentation in Paris, he came up through the ranks the old-school way. He worked in some of the best restaurants in the country, in positions from apprentice to executive chef, ultimately running the kitchen at the White House under two presidents.
Just when it seems like the ethnic design trend has run its course, these out-of-the-ordinary patterns demonstrate their staying power. In fact, designers say ikat, susani, and batik-inspired patterns are so enduring, they’ve become staples in American design, just like traditional and modern.

Olive Boulevard between 1-70 and Skinker Boulevard is home to an array of noteworthy (and authentic) Asian restaurants and markets. Lu Lu Seafood Restaurant, a fixture in the area for some 20 years, has been on our short list of must-trys for a while.
In 1990, when JoAnne Levy was ready to buy her first home, she returned to Olivette, where she had lived for the first few years of her life. Levy, VP of ROi, found a home in Chevy Chase and fell back in love with the area. After marrying Jim Thomeczek, an attorney with Thomeczek and Brink, their growing family dictated a move in 2001 to a bigger house just a half-mile away, in order to keep their kids in Old Bonhomme Elementary. Parents to Samantha, 25; Jake, 21; Jerry, 19; Mari, 16; and Josh, 12, the couple loves the diversity of the people, architecture and neighborhoods that Olivette offers. We ask JoAnne and Jim to share more about the community.

Dr. Jeffrey Marsh takes the Chinese proverb, Teach a man to fish… a step further. He believes in “teaching men to fish, so they can teach others to fish.”
When Jimmy Loomis III was in fifth grade, he watched a movie that would spur him toward a life of community involvement. The movie was An Inconvenient Truth, and the moment took place just seven years ago. Called to action by the film’s message about climate change and its consequences, the then 10-year-old stood before the Ladue City Council and successfully proposed the creation of a municipal recycling program. “That’s when I first became really interested in politics,” he recalls. “I realized that no matter who you are, what you have and where you come from, you can make a difference. I was able to witness actual change taking place and that has motivated me ever since.”

I was doing a little research online last week. Well, let me back up. We have had our puppy for a little more than a year. According to all the experts—you know, the neighbors, my dry cleaner, the cable guy—her, um, rambunctiousness should have died down by now. Yet for some reason, on the scale of canine insanity, she falls somewhere between peculiar and deranged. Of course, it doesn’t help that Whiny and Punch are for all intents and purposes human puppies, always eager for a little rough-housing.
Story: Anne Frank, the 14-year-old girl whose life was one of millions of European Jews extinguished in concentration camps by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi party in World War II, meets another 14-year-old, Emmett Till, a black boy from Chicago who was brutally murdered in 1955 while visiting relatives in Mississippi, an act that galvanized America’s black community and started the Civil Rights movement.
The Baldwin Report
This summer’s brutal heat and drought have been hard on the landscape, with dead trees and damaged lawns everywhere. We returned from traveling in late June to find our garden slowly turning to toast. The hostas were brown, crispy potato chips, and the swamp-loving box elder was the first tree to die. Japanese maples and yew hedges became blondes under the searing summer sun. Some trees would look fine on Monday and be completely brown before the weekend. In most cases, the oak, pine, maple and ash trees already had some hidden damage that weakened them and reduced their resilience. Dogwoods, red buds and sassafras all started dropping their leaves. One day in July, the thick carpet of fallen leaves under my sycamore made me think it was October.
Story: Yank and his cohorts spend their days and nights toiling in the boiler room of a steamship, stoking the fires with the coal they shovel into the gaping mouth of its churning engines. He is content with his lot until a chance encounter with the spoiled daughter of a steel magnate, who insists on visiting the ship’s engine room and is appalled by the look and behavior of Yank, from whom she recoils in disgust and terror.

It was a special moment for Diane Patershuk when she witnessed a group of second-graders speaking Mandarin at a Ladue elementary school. The Chinese language class is one of several programs funded in the Ladue School District through the Ladue Education Foundation (LEF). “It was neat to see those students participate in something like that. LEF allows us to provide those extraordinary opportunities,” says Patershuk, a member of the foundation’s board.
