Reuniting in St. Louis

April 25, 2011

ST. LOUIS — It certainly wasn’t a normal “reunion.”
Beth Chamblin (PHS class of 1986), Nolan Barrios (PHS class of 1986), Heather King (PHS class of 1995) and Esther Rodriguez-Thompson (PHS class of 1983) recently had a meeting “on the run” — literally. The four comprised the team of Four 40-somethings from Plymouth that placed 20 of 171 co-ed teams in the marathon relay event of the Go! St. Louis Marathon and Family Fitness Weekend. The April event attracted over 23,000 participants from 47 states and 12 countries in 2010.

Glass beads a work of art for local resident

April 25, 2011

PLYMOUTH — It’s baffling to recognize that the same pesky granules of sand — the ones that somehow inevitably find their way into every unwelcome place imaginable while you’re visiting the beach — can be transformed into such a worthwhile material as glass.

A perfect example of this is the glass bead.

Culver’s Corndance closing? Don’t believe the hype, says owner

April 23, 2011

Small towns may not actually play host to more rumors than larger cities, but at times small communities like Culver may seem to. One recent rumor has been troubling Corndance Cafe and Marmont Grille owner (and chef) George Pesek and his wife Tammy: that of the restaurant’s impending doom in Culver.
“We believe that rumor was started to hurt Corndance,” says George. “We never considered selling Corndance or our home.”
