From the time Dr. Denise Hooks-Anderson was a little girl, becoming a physician was all she ever wanted to do. “I was a doctor for all of my dolls, and I would watch different doctor shows like Marcus Welby, M. D.,” she recalls. “I always kept that dream and desire, and just went full speed ahead after it.” The Arkansas native, who came to St. Louis in 2000, also was inspired by her childhood doctor. “He was truly the old-fashioned type, and I wanted to emulate him. I didn’t have any female physician role models, but it didn’t matter to me. That’s just what I wanted to do.”

Gerald Early was born and raised in South Philadelphia's Southwark neighborhood. It was the setting for the story of Rocky Balboa. The movie was fiction but the area was a very real place, and Early is one of its real-life over-comers.

Story: In a comfortable, old-fashioned home, Frank Gianelli talks about “tengo famiglia.” That’s Italian for “I support a family,” but Frank says it means even more than that, it means that a man “is doing well for my woman and my children. I have a reason for being alive.”

In the weeks following my Webster Groves Recreation Complex Beginning Spinning course, I have been trying to find a way to say this in a professional manner, appropriate for publication, only to come to the conclusion that there's no nice way around it. The problem with Spinning, plain and simple, is the seat.

St. Louis may be known as a sports town, but Jill McGuire says that the Gateway City should be thought of as something else—an "arts town."
As we head into the heat of July—and yet another summer of sequels, prequels and remakes—I was forced to remind myself that sometimes, it's not all that bad. OK, it’s usually pretty bad. I only need to take a quick peek at Caddyshack 2 on TBS to be reminded of that. So, either I truly am the eternal optimist or I have developed some bizarre, cinematic form of Stockholm syndrome because I keep going back, hoping that maybe this time, the sequel (or the prequel or the re-imagining) will be worth the price of a ticket.

If You’re a Presenter, It’s Time to De-Clutter!
Let me start by saying that I absolutely love an 80-minute movie. When did everyone decide that for a film to be legitimate, it has to hover around the two-hour mark? It’s like everyone’s back in high school, trying to get the term paper to 10 pages. The brilliance of this story is only amplified by its brevity.

The term 'legend' is thrown about pretty freely. Sometimes, it seems like any restaurant that's been open a few years is granted legendary status. Few places that truly deserve the title—and Tony's is at the top of that list.

There are very few actors working today I would rather watch on screen than Clive Owen. He is talented and handsome, and capable of demonstrating that rare combination of strength and vulnerability. He’s an Oscar-caliber actor just waiting for the right film. His costar here, Juliette Binoche, is a beautiful and charming actress--and yes, she already has an Oscar. Together, one would think there would be very little that could keep them from making a terrific film--unless that one thing is the script.
In the wake of a string of atrocious big-budget bombs for Tom Cruise--and a title that makes it sound like a '70s soap opera--I was fully prepared to hate this movie. I was hoping it would be so bad I could walk out, get a little payback for having to sit through Oblivion. However, I should have known that if any movie star can weather the storm, it’s Tom Cruise. After countless maybe-I’ll-rent-it releases, he finally picked a winner.
