Eric Rhone didn’t start out to be in the ‘funny’ business. Growing up in Normandy and Pine Lawn as the son of a Bi-State bus driver and city school district employee, he probably did not see himself running an entertainment company, making multi-million-dollar decisions and living in a palatial home in Frontenac.
The humble knee is a true orthopedic workhorse. With its combination of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid, it carries us through life—until something goes wrong.
Getting what you want always starts with knowing where to look. And the real estate market is no different. “Having an extensive conversation with clients to determine their priorities and lifestyles when considering a new home is the primary step in the search process,” says Kathy Crane of Laura McCarthy Real Estate. Here, local real estate agents have given us insights into good places to start your home search, depending on your family’s priorities.
Kim Uzzetta, administrator of Parkcrest Orthopedics, is busy. That’s because the practice of four orthopedic surgeons and two certified physician assistants offers a full range of services. Yet Uzzetta is never too busy to provide the kind of personalized service she would expect for her own family, and that philosophy is at the heart of the practice, she says.
Teresa Borbonus has a long history with Des Peres, having moved there with her family when she was just 2 years old. Later in life, after living in University City, Teresa and her husband, John, an associate circuit court judge for St. Louis County, returned to Des Peres, moving into her childhood home. The couple lived there with their children, Bella 11; Evie, 9; and Gia, 7, before moving to a new home in a different part of Des Peres last year. Teresa took a few minutes recently to discuss her family’s love for the neighborhood.
Rather than list the local institutions that Bob and Mary Lee Hermann have supported, it would almost be easier to list those they have not been involved in—if you could think of anything to put on that list. So while they may protest that they’ve slowed down in recent years, it’s no surprise to those who know them that they would be named among LN’s Most Dynamic St. Louisans.
Sports today has become specialized—too specialized. Because of the popularity of select sports, kids are forced to quit sports they are proficient in so they can make that fifth select hockey, soccer or basketball practice of the week. That's why stories like Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders don't happen much anymore. In high school, it's tough to be really good at two sports. In college, the two-sport athlete is almost non-existent.
Timing was just right for Lauren Paige Macheca and Michael Anthony Ambersley when they met at Bar Louie in Kirkwood through a mutual friend. They discovered that their paths had intertwined for years, but it wasn’t until that January night that they officially had their first conversation – which was the beginning of a whirlwind long-distance relationship as Mike began his professional soccer career in upstate New York.
Let’s keep this short and sweet. Gerard Butler needs to fire his agent. How on earth he attaches himself to these projects I have no idea. I mean, I muddled through The Naked Truth, where he wooed the flinty Katherine Heigl. I threw up a little into my mouth during Bounty Hunter with the lovely and talented Jennifer Aniston. I tried to go see his surfing movie, Chasing Mavericks, but apparently between the time I pulled out of my driveway and the time I parked my car, it had left theaters. Here, I draw the line.
The date was July 10, 1999. The event was the final of the Women's World Cup between the United States and China. The audience of 40 million made it the most-watched soccer game ever on U.S. network television.
I’m not going to lie to you: We are in for a strange month of movies. December is typically peppered with Oscar favorites and holiday family fun, but this year is anything but usual.

It was the spring of 2005. Mike McNeill was a junior in high school. He was at home in Kirkwood, and he had just gotten the mail. There was a letter from Nebraska, but he wasn't quite sure what it meant. He thought they were offering him a scholarship. He asked his mom to read the letter. Afterward, she thought the same thing. They weren't quite certain. So they actually called the Nebraska recruiter and asked, "Does this mean you are offering a scholarship?" The recruiter laughed before telling them yes, they were offering.
It has been a strange week. Normally I write this column on a Thursday, a nice, relaxing day—no pressure. Usually Cranky Whiny and Punch have engaged in some sort of hijinks—a soccer mishap or a bake-sale fiasco—but for some reason, this week was different. I was out of gas—literally and figuratively: I had no column and my car ran out of gas (I say that like it’s my car’s fault). Now, normally when life hands me lemons…but not today.
St. Louis recently welcomed two senior cyclists who rode the 3,000 or so miles from Seaside, Ore., to University City to build awareness for HABITAT FOR HUMANITY. Among those making the journey was 75-year-old BOB FRICK, a Washington University alum who now resides in California. He and fellow cyclist, 70- year-old LEN HOLMES, made the trip to raise funds for Habitat East Bay (in the San Francisco Bay area). The men, who left the West Coast on June 11, ended their ride Aug. 18 at Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis’ build site in University City, where five homes are scheduled to be completed in early December. LN recently spoke with a local family who will soon be moving into their Habitat home. Their story begins on p. 19.
More than 400 soccer dribblers set a Guinness World Record in St. Louis last year.
After putting together one of the most dominant seasons ever recorded in Missouri, the defending Class 2 soccer champion Priory Rebels will look much different this fall. Much different.
Priory coach John Morhmann
He is at a golf course every morning at 6 a.m. He wants to be the first person off, and he doesn’t have time to wait behind a foursome of a bunch of hackers. He has too much at stake. He has a swing out of Golf Digest and the mind of a champion. He also has a dream: 23-year-old Justin Bryant wants to be a member of the PGA Tour.
For one last time, the area’s top soccer players will take the field to compete with and against one another.

The girls all-star game kicks off at 6 p.m. The boys will start just after 8 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students. It costs $2 to park.
Whether it’s a move down the street or across the country, child relocation can turn into one of the most hotly contested topics in divorce cases.
If Jenn Miller was any tougher, she’d open bottles with her teeth. Miller, a midfielder, was the best all-around player for the Cor Jesu soccer team this spring, and everyone knew it. When the whistle blew, Miller had to be, more often than not, ready to rumble. Soccer is notoriously physical, and the midfield is where bodies collide, legs get intertwined and the occasional elbow introduces itself to a rib cage. In the midfield, you can turn around into someone’s chest one minute and the next be admiring those pretty, puffy clouds high in the sky.
FRIDAY, JUNE 1
Erin McGauley knows all too well what the view from the bench looks like. A superb wing midfielder for the Cor Jesu soccer team, McGauley has spent her share of days glued to the pine, watching as the Chargers made mincemeat of one opponent after another.
