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.
Happy Birthday, Ol’ Blue Eyes.

As the No. 1 killer of women, heart disease has personally touched the lives of many people. As chair of the upcoming 2014 Go Red for Women luncheon, Penny Pennington, a principal at Edward Jones, realized how much it had affected her own family: Her grandmother died at age 55 of a heart attack, along with other family members who have been affected. “As I learned more about heart disease in women, I found out that it is likely that I will have a personal experience with heart disease either myself or through someone close to me. The statistics are much higher for women and heart disease than any other killer, including cancer: About three times more women have heart disease.”

So something funny happened last week. It’s not earth-shattering or anything, but it did kind of creep up on me. Birthdays don’t exactly appear out of nowhere. On some level, we know when our kids’ birthdays are coming up. Punch’s big day shouldn’t have been a shock. We’ve been celebrating it for years, after all. I remember the first one vividly as it was the night of the infamous Bush-Gore presidential election, dimpled chads and all. Nevertheless, when he burst through the bedroom door that morning and announced, I’m a teenager! It hit me like a safe falling from a roof: I have three teenagers.

Choosing music for your wedding should be one of the planning stage’s more enjoyable decisions, and it should be done together as a couple. While selecting music to celebrate your big day can be overwhelming (like everything else about the wedding), it can be simplified if you separate the decisions into ‘categories.’ There is appropriate music for religious ceremonies, as well as secular and ethnic weddings.

But in more recent years, operations on the Eureka farm have grown and expanded, with great promise for the future.

Story: Elderly solicitor Mr. Kipps has rented a theater to read a biographical story about his encounter with a deadly specter decades before. His delivery, though, leaves much to be desired, something a young actor at the theater repeatedly observes in rather brusque fashion.
OK. So it’s no secret that Hollywood is a shining example of environmentalism. I mean, when it comes to reuse and recycle, the film industry is unrivaled. If a movie’s a hit, they make it another hit and then another. Let’s see if we can hit a 10-figure, worldwide box-office gross without burning a single creative calorie. The film industry will squeeze every dollar out of a good movie down to the last action figure. It’s the soul-less version of using all the parts of the buffalo.
