Story: Addison Peddigrew, a man of color, differs from most of his race in rural Kentucky in 1843 in that he is free. Kind of. He’s among roughly 2 percent of the black population in Kentucky at that time who were not considered slaves in the ‘border state’ that had both pro-slavery and anti-slavery constituents. Directly north, however, was the free state of Ohio, to which runaways desired to escape.

Chef and restaurateur Ben Poremba has made quite a name for himself in the local culinary scene in recent years. His places—Elaia & Olia, La Patisserie Choquette and Old Standard Fried Chicken—have brought a wide range of good food and drink to St. Louis. Poremba’s efforts have garnered him plenty of attention locally and beyond, including being named a semi-finalist for the James Beard Best Chef: Midwest award in 2014, and as one of 10 chefs who vied for Food & Wine magazine’s People’s Best New Chef: Midwest title that year, as well.
At least 65 percent of Americans own a smartphone—that's almost 200 million people. Someone once referred to smartphones as “the cigarettes of our decade," if you consider how some people think it's rude or impolite to whip it out when company is around.

Dr. Robert Bergamini chose pediatric oncology as his medical specialty almost 35 years ago because he knew it was challenging: He saw it as an opportunity to care for sick children and their families, part of "doing the complete job of providing care for the entire family unit," he explains. And while you may assume working with cancer-stricken children would be emotion-ally draining, when asked how he copes, Bergamini pauses and then says simply, “We have fun.”

Autographed St. Louis Cardinals photographs line the walls of Richard Mark’s office—an impressive collection any Redbirds fan would envy.
