Rams Dominate at Home Opener

By Karl Lund

From their explosive entrance onto the field to the game winning field goal by Greg “The Leg” Zuerlein with only seconds left on the clock, the St. Louis Rams took every opportunity to let us know that this is a whole new season and a whole new team.

The energy on the field was infectious to say the least. I am really excited about what coach Fisher and the St. Louis Rams have in store for the season. I have a feeling they will make St. Louis and Rams fans around the world very proud!

Sunset Over St. Louis

Written by

There is a wonderful view of the St. Louis skyline from Horseshoe Lake State Park. The sunset had a pinkish glow and for a few magical moments the color was just right.

Two local scientists were honored at the White House last month for their contributions to the St. Louis community. Dr. Terry Woodford-Thomas, director of science education and outreach at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, and Dr. Cindy Encarncion, director of life sciences at the St. Louis Science Center, were invited to the Champions of Change awards program at the White House on June 25th, 2013. The event recognized American citizens’ contributions to their communities and highlighted “citizen science” projects across the nation. White House officials participated in a discussion with honorees to learn more about the impact on scientific advances as a result of efforts by citizens, including many non-experts, to engage in scientific research.
