There’s no question about it: St. Louisans love silver, especially old-school vintage pieces with the look of coin silver. It’s now possible to have it literally hanging around 24/7, thanks to these new light fixtures that incorporate silver flatware as a decorative element. Troy Lighting’s Bistro kitchen fixture blends classic hand-worked iron and elegant crystal with spoons, forks and knives in one conversation-starting piece. Another charmer: the Spoondelier from Cake Vintage featuring old teaspoons. Each one is made to order.
The Baldwin Report
Story: Hannah Senesh was born in 1921, the only daughter of a Hungarian journalist/playwright and his wife. After her father died when she was six years old, Hannah lived with her mother Catherine and brother Giora in Budapest. An experience with anti-Semitism in her early teens awakened her interest in Zionism. She graduated from high school on the eve of World War II and was thrilled to be accepted into the Agricultural School for Young Women in Nahalal in the British Mandate of Palestine.

If you’re of a certain age, you will most certainly remember going on a date or taking the family to Union Station. You might even have been fortunate enough to experience this local landmark the way it was meant to be: departing or arriving by train from one of America’s grandest terminals. In its 1940s heyday, Union Station welcomed more than 100,000 passengers a day.
Of all the people who have ever played high school football in our area, I think what T. J. Moe did his senior year stacks up against anybody—anybody. Read closely: At Fort Zumwalt West in 2008, he scored 61 touchdowns. That is not a career, that is a single season. Only Roger Maris has had a more impressive 61. Moe threw for 2,557 yards, and he ran for 2,029 yards. Throw in a perfect grade point average and a pretty good basketball career, and you have a pretty nice high-school experience.
It takes a brave visionary to make big things happen in big spaces. Bob O’Loughlin is doing just that with his renovation—or better yet, reinvention—of St. Louis Union Station.
By the time most patients come to see Dr. Rames Gheith, they have often been facing pain for months or even years. Gheith, a physician at Interventional Pain Institute, says it’s so common for people dealing with chronic pain to wait before addressing it, that a new diagnosis has developed. “Chronic pain syndrome is a diagnosis that develops on top of the pain, both psychologically and emotionally. There’s severe anxiety that these patients are dealing with, and often they’re taking pain medicine, antidepressants and mood-stabilizing treatments that could have been avoided or minimized if the treatment was timely.”

Who can you trust? Where can you get accurate information? There are a lot of misinformation and falsehoods online. Many people, however passionate, are just plain uneducated—these are the ones who post based on emotion and not on facts. Others have political, religious or other agendas that they want to promote with little or no regard for the truth. Another group can be considered the scam artists, who only have one purpose: to take your money. Another category is reserved for terrorists or hate groups, who want to impose their hateful ideologies. For them, truth has a very low priority. In addition, there are honest misunderstandings, in which people just don’t fact-check before they post.

Here’s the thing: Is it possible to dislike this movie? Surely, one can loathe slavery, inhumanity and evil, and not particularly like a film about it. This movie tells an unfathomably horrible true story about the abduction and enslavement of a free black man in mid-19th century America. It’s painful to watch—often because of the subject matter and occasionally because of some awkward film-making and direction that doesn't seem to trust the power of the story itself.
