Congratulations Lindbergh High School Seniors for a terrific achievement. Best wishes from the South County business community.

Of the 535 graduates, 84.7 percent plan to attend college, 2.2 percent plan to enroll in schools of advanced training, 3.4 percent plan to serve in the military, 8.4 percent plan to enter the workforce, and 1.3 percent are undecided.

Once again this year, LHS was ranked among America’s best high schools by U.S. News and World Report and the Washington Post – and with good reason.

Marc Garcia plays the trumpet at the ceremony. Photo by Bill Milligan.

The Department of Veteran Affairs will be hosting a Memorial Day program to remember and honor all military members who have served or are serving the nation at 10 a.m. Monday, May 27 at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetary, 2900 Sheridan Road.

Bus and tram transportation will be provided beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Memorial Day. Visitors can use either the Sheridan Road Metro Station lot or the Jefferson Barracks VA Medical Center for bus and tram transportation to the ceremony.

Due to very heavy traffic on Sheridan Road, visitors are strongly encouraged to use the Koch Road exit from Interstate 255 and park in the shuttle lots at the JB VA Medical Center. Signage on Koch Road will direct visitors to the purple and bronze lots near Buildings 53 and 54 at the VAMC.

For those who have loved ones interred in Columbarium C, Section 1MM, Section 1-OO and Section 1QQ, please use the parking lot east of Building 1 and the Fisher House located at the VAMC.

Shuttle vans will transport visitors directly to those specific sections. There will be assistance in gravesite locations at the administration building and throughout the cemetery.

Due to the large volume of visitors on Memorial Day, guests may choose to use the grave locator located at the website prior to their visit: http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/.

This year’s event will feature a ceremonial flyover by a local group of Stearman Aircraft Owners.

The Sappington-Concord Historical Society will return to St. Lucas United Church of Christ this year to host the biggest little annual Memorial Day celebration in South County.

This year’s event will be at 10 a.m. Monday, May 27, on the green at St. Lucas United Church of Christ, 11735 Denny Road, 63126. The annual family friendly celebration is free and open to the public.

This year’s event will feature distinguished speaker and United States Air Force veteran John A. Marshall.

Marshall has flown several aircraft in his career as an Air Force and commercial airline pilot, including B-52s and B-747s. 

There will also be a ceremonial flyover by a local group of Stearman Aircraft Owners; a bald eagle named Liberty on display from the World Bird Sanctuary; and musical performances by Rachel Nieters, Lauren Hoggatt, the Moolah Drum Corps and the Lindbergh High School Spirit of St. Louis Marching Band.

In addition, Master Sgt. David Rogers will present a special recognition in honor of Sgt. Carl Spinner, who served as chairman of the Memorial Day Service Committee for 17 years and died in August at the age of 95.

The Historical Society is “grateful for Carl’s many years of service to this event.”

Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, and parking will be available on the east parking lot at St. Lucas. Following the ceremony, all are invited to attend a reception with light refreshments in the auditorium at St. Lucas.

For more information, please visit www.schs.ws.

Following the ceremony, the Historical Society will offer two books for sale:

“Sappington-Concord: A History,” a comprehensive volume that includes stories about the original families who settled in the area, and a history of churches, cemeteries, schools and businesses.

“Hometown Heroes,” which tells the stories of local residents who served in World War I, World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell takes questions from reporters following the swearing-in ceremonies on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019. Bell was formally sworn into office at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1 prior to Tuesday’s ceremonies. Photo by Erin Achenbach.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell will not bring any criminal charges in the deaths of an Oakville man and two other inmates since January at the county jail. 

Bell announced Thursday he will not prosecute any jail guards or nurses at the St. Louis County Justice Center in the Feb. 23 death of Oakville resident John Shy, 29, or the Feb. 28 death of Lamar Catchings, 21, following an “exhausting review of the existing evidence,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

“In these two terrible cases, the evidence does not support our office issuing any criminal charge,” prosecutors said in a statement.

But Bell’s office is compiling a list of best practices to follow at the Justice Center in the future to prevent similar tragedies, according to the statement.

A detective from the Clayton Police Department recommended charges of second-degree involuntary manslaughter against two nurses who were on duty when Shy died. He was taken to the hospital twice in one day and then died of internal bleeding on the floor of his cell in the jail infirmary. One of the nurses, who the prosecutor’s office refers to as “suspects,” spoke to police while the other did not. 

Clayton police did not make any recommendation on charges in Catchings’ death. He died of undiagnosed acute leukemia in his cell in the regular jail.

But in a list of bullet points about Shy’s death, Bell’s office said that a manslaughter charge would require showing criminal negligence, which prosecutors didn’t believe could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in this case.

Bell said he met with the families of the inmates and extends his deepest sympathies to them. 

New County Executive Sam Page, who took office April 29, apologized to the families at the May 7 County Council meeting. 

“Real people have died because of things that happened at the Justice Center,” Page said. “No one should lose their life in our custody. Tonight I want to take the opportunity to offer a deep and heartfelt apology to the families and friends of Jay Reavis, John Shy and Lamar Catchings. We take responsibility for what happened, and we commit ourselves to preventing such tragedies in the future, and I am sorry.”

Catchings’ mother Tashonda Troupe has been frequently speaking at council meetings, asking for criminal charges to be brought in his death.

“If not for my son’s death in your jail, you wouldn’t know me,” she told the council Wednesday night. “I’ve learned that guards don’t follow policies and procedures and that’s OK — it’s not OK. For 82 days all I have thought about is my child. I can’t stress enough to you how much things have to change.”

Several years ago, in the middle of one County Council brawl or another — they all run together after awhile — this reporter was talking to a group of South County residents outside 41 S. Central Ave. in Clayton, the Government Center, when 1st District Councilwoman Hazel Erby, D-University City, emerged.

That night, a large contingent of South Countians had gone to Clayton to talk about a zoning issue and felt they were ignored by their own 6th District County Councilman.

But Erby had said their concerns should be taken seriously. She had even visited the proposed zoning site in South County, despite the fact that she represented North County.

Grateful, one of the South County residents hugged Erby and said, “I wish you represented us instead.”

And in a way, she did. Erby, who resigned last week to take a job for new County Executive Sam Page, was one of the council members most likely to side with county residents.

Her 15-year tenure on the council was defined by two county executives: She had unwavering support for former County Executive Charlie Dooley, whose seat she took on the council when he became county executive after the death in office of the late County Executive Buzz Westfall.

Former 1st District Councilwoman Hazel Erby thanks her supporters and fellow council members during her last meeting on the St. Louis County Council May 15 in Clayton. The former councilwoman received a standing ovation from the audience and council, with some audience members going to the dais to give her flowers. Photo by Erin Achenbach.

And spurred by Dooley’s defeat at the hands of then-6th District Councilman Steve Stenger, she opposed County Executive Stenger from Day 1. Although The Call disagreed with some of Erby’s tactics and statements over the years that somtimes seemed more motivated by dislike for Stenger than what was best for the county, history will look kindly on her as the main roadblock Stenger always faced on the council.

As Erby moves to the ninth floor, the council will miss her common-sense presence on the dais, tough but fair. When her fellow Democrats only gave residents one minute to speak, Erby gave them their full time.

And when the 6th District didn’t provide the leadership South County needed, Erby came through.

For that, she could always hold her head up high. The same night she was hugged by the South County resident, Ferguson resident and future county executive candidate Nick Kasoff told her, “I notice you’re the only one who came out the front door.”

It’s a fitting metaphor for Erby’s 15 years of public service. As her council colleagues ducked out the back way, she strolled out the front door with the people of St. Louis County.

A power outage at one of the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District’s pump stations along the River Des Peres has caused water to back up into homes along Germania Street.

MSD crews responded to several basement backup calls Thursday morning due to a power outage at the Louis Pump Station, which is located near Germania and Louis streets.  Crews were able to restore power to the station within a few hours.

MSD’s 24-hour customer service line started to receive calls for water in homes along Germania around 3:30 a.m. MSD crews responded and discovered that the Louis Pump Station may have been struck by lightning during the overnight storms.

The possible lightning strike caused the power to fail, which then caused the sewer system to back up into nearby homes along the River Des Peres.

MSD operates seven pump stations along the River Des Peres.  The sewer district has crews staffed at the various pump stations and will continue to monitor the stations due to the upcoming forecast.

Insurance adjusters and cleanup crews are responding to the area to assist residents who have water backing up into their homes. For basement backups caused by overcharging of the public sewer system, MSD has a Basement Backup Insurance Program that will assist with cleanup and recovery.

Overcharging of the sewer system occurs when so much rain enters the public sewer that it cannot handle any more water.  Basement backups that occur as a result of overland flooding, defective laterals or downspouts connected to a home’s internal plumbing are not covered under MSD’s insurance program.

To the editor:

The Better Together studies find that the region “overpays” $750 million for local government services. But what is an “overpayment,” and who defines it?

If my neighbor purchases turkey at the deli at Costco, and I choose to buy turkey at Dierbergs, are we creating an “overpayment” by exercising our freedom of choice?

We choose the store and the items we prefer and decide how much we spend. Should we be forced to pool our resources to buy deli turkey together, perhaps compromising on the store and quality of the product to accommodate our joint budget?

Pooling resources to share the cost of services is not a bad thing when citizens drive the decision and the process.

The Better Together plan decides for us what services cost too much and should be shared without giving St. Louis County and St. Louis city residents the opportunity to decide what services are being “overpaid” and how we could address that together.

If the Better Together proponents want support from citizens of both the city and county, they should do more to allow us to decide how our resources are combined to make us “better together.”

The Crestwood mall site, pictured above, as seen on May 21, 2019. Dirt will soon return to the site.

By Erin Achenbach
Staff Reporter

Dirt is being trucked back into the Crestwood mall site, after the Crestwood Board of Aldermen granted developer Walpert Properties Inc. a temporary grading permit March 26 to move 40,000 cubic yards of off-site fill to four acres on the southwestern section of the property.

Mounds of dirt were leveled to bring the mall site up to grade with Watson Road last year, after city residents objected to the huge mounds that came to be called “Mount Crestwood.”

Now, more than 4,000 truckloads of dirt are expected to be deposited at the site. The process, which began at the end of April, could take as long as six months. The dirt will come from the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District’s new Gravois Trunk Sanitary Storage Facility at 8645 Pardee Lane.

The 47-acre former site of the Crestwood Plaza mall at Watson and Sappington roads could be the location of a redevelopment plan topping $100 million.

The site is still owned by Chicago-based UrbanStreet Group, which tried and failed to develop the site for the last three years. Now the land is under contract to Creve Coeur-based Walpert with the contingency that Walpert can sign up enough tenants.

City Administrator Kris Simpson said that traditionally grading permits are only granted after site plans are approved for a project. But since Walpert Properties had the opportunity to receive the fill at a cost-effective rate, city staff felt it was in the city’s best interest to issue a temporary grading permit.

“Obviously we had the concern with Mount Crestwood that we dealt with last year, and in discussions with the applicant and the contractor… they agreed to grade the fill as it is brought in… so it won’t ever be stockpiled,” said Simpson. “It’ll be brought in and smoothed, and we felt that would be something that is acceptable.”

Walpert Properties Director of Development Kent Evans explained to the aldermen at the March 26 board meeting that the four acres where the dirt will be deposited had a significant drop-off and an 80-foot elevation change.

“We could bring in as much dirt as we possibly could get,” said Evans. “On the western end we’re talking to some users, and everyone is concerned about being below grade.”

The dirt will be used to bring that portion of the property up to grade.

Evans added that “there will be no mountains, no molehills” and that the dirt, which is clean fill, will be seeded to grow green until development. The dirt will be delivered off Sappington Road onto the old Macy’s site. The Crestwood Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of the grading permit at its March 13 meeting, but required that the petitioner provide a $100,000 surety amount.
