In celebration of Earth Day this month, we focus on electric/hybrid automobiles. Though some may think electric cars are something new, from about 1900 to the late 1920s, there were a number of electric cars built and sold in America, including Milburns, Bakers and Detroit Electrics.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some higher temps and warm sunshine. Of course, the best way to enjoy all spring has to offer is in a convertible automobile. Convertibles come in all shapes, sizes and prices these days, with attractive options for just about anyone seeking some open-air fun.
Aerodynamics seems to be shaping most cars these days. And for sedans and coupes, that means a sharply raked rear window, which, in turn, translates to a relatively small trunk opening, making it hard to insert and remove large objects. An easy solution to this problem is the hatchback. Long popular in Europe, this extremely functional body style is under-appreciated here in the U.S.

The father-and-son team of Bob and Steve O’Loughlin is going non-stop, working to create or redesign the next the next big St. Louis hotel ‘experience.’ In the past couple of years, the tandem has been even more successful than usual. The highlights include opening the hugely popular Three Sixty atop their Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark and re-energizing the storied Cheshire Inn. At the same time, they made major purchases: Among them, the Marriott St. Louis Airport, Westport Plaza and one of the crown jewels of St. Louis, Union Station—yes, Union Station!
Families these days come in many shapes and sizes. Similarly, cars for families come in a variety of shapes, sizes, trim levels and prices. If your family doesn’t require the space of a minivan or SUV, a sedan can be a great way to get the family around in style and comfort at a price commensurate with your desired level of performance and luxury.

The biggest automotive trend in the last 20 years or so has to be the sport utility vehicle, or SUV. They have all but replaced the family station wagon, and then some. Even business types often choose to drive SUVs for the extra space and for the reassurance of four-wheel-drive surefootedness in wet or snowy weather.

They learn to add and subtract; and eventually, they reach a level of algebra that surpasses my diminished capacity. They learn how to play a sport or a musical instrument. They may even pick up a second language. However, here’s something you might not know: They drive. And we’re not talking Big Wheels or those little imitation things that buzz up and down the driveway—actual cars.
Story: Mother Superior desperately needs funds to improve St. Veronica’s school, a middle-class Roman Catholic facility in Pittsburgh teeming with Baby Boomers circa 1966. “It’s a period of vast social change,” she tells another nun, “and we must do everything in our power to stop it.” In dire straits, she visits a local Jewish widow known for her beneficence, only to learn that Mrs. Levinson is a confirmed atheist.
