  • Serbfest celebrates century of Serbian culture in St. Louis

    Serbfest celebrates Serbian traditions and Eastern Orthodox beliefs. But the priest at Holy Trinity Serbian Eastern Orthodox Church, which was established a century ago, also made a point Saturday to express his love of the United States. "The more you know about America, the more you love it," the Rev. Radomir Chkautovich, who fled socialist Yugoslavia in 1963, said with an accent. Chkautovich, a retired U.S. Navy lieutenant commander and chaplain, regularly leads tours of his church during Serbfest to explain its history and Serbian traditions....

  • The One Man Who Can Stop Albert Pujols From Winning the Triple Crown (not Votto of Cincinnati)

    The Bleacher Report ^ | 8/25/10 | By Joseph DelGrippo (Featured Columnist)
    During Monday night's St. Louis Cardinals loss to the last-place (and worst record in baseball) Pittsburgh Pirates, Albert Pujols was 3-for-5 with a double, raising his batting average to .322. I know this stat is not important to saber heads (please bear with us), but for this argument it is imperative. Meanwhile, on the west coast, Cincinnati's Joey Votto went 1-for-4 in a 13-5 drubbing by the now offensively resurgent San Francisco Giants. That effort dropped Votto's season average to .323, a single point above Pujols. With Pujols ahead in the National League in home runs (33) and RBI (92),...

    Grand Old Partisan ^ | August 25, 2010 | Michael Zak
    According to Gateway Pundit, the person who set fire to an office of a Democrat, Rep. Russ Carnahan, is a fellow Democrat. Reportedly, the arsonist is a disgruntled employee of the congressman and a lefty blogger at Talking Points Memo. A televison station in St. Louis, KMOV, is saying that the terrorist -- yes, that's what he is -- has been arrested. If so, what exactly were the charges? Is he now in jail? And, where is the mug shot? It's safe to say that if the culprit were a Republican, the details of his arrest, along with his mug...

    Layoffs to gut East St. Louis police forceBY NICHOLAS J.C. PISTOR Posted: Friday, July 30, 2010 2:15 pm EAST ST. LOUIS - The Rev. Joseph Tracy said he’s tired of going to funerals. And now, he suspects he’ll be going to more of them. "It’s open field day now," said Tracy, the pastor of Straightway Baptist Church here. "The criminals are going to run wild." Gang activity. Drug dealing. Cold-blooded killing. Tracy worries that a decision to shrink the police force by almost 30 percent will bring more of everything. The pastor voiced his concern on Friday at a raucous...

    Rock band Kings of Leon were forced to pull the plug half way through a concert after their bass player was pooped on by pigeons. Jared Followill had been hit several times already when a particularly large splat landed on his face near his mouth. That proved too much for the rockers, who fled the stage in St Louis, Missouri just three songs into their set. Read more:

    We Will Not Be Silenced Last year the Pelosi-Obama regime passed the most irresponsible and damaging piece of legislation in American history – the Trillion Dollar Stimulus Bill. They dumped a trillion dollars into a government sink hole with the promise that they would create jobs. We knew better. We were afraid for our families and our country. We were outraged and took to the streets. We spoke out. We came out. We protested the elites. SNIP We will not be silenced. Not now. Not ever.

Charles Henrickson made a recommendation to have a picnic in the summer, which was reinforced by those around the table. Therefore, we will have the picnic on June 19th, 2010 at 12:00pm at a location to be determined. I will work on getting a covered pavilion reserved in the St. Louis area on Monday and will provide more details at a future time. The meat and soda will be provided, but...

    Dear St. Louis Area FReepers, Given the current political climate, I thought that it would be advantageous to meet over dinner somewhere to discuss current events and our personal strategies to restore the Republic. The restaurant is not important to me (there is absolutely no need to squabble over trivial things like that), but I would like to get to know everyone better beyond the monitor. Of course, if you are already meeting on a somewhat reoccurring basis, I'd like to get involved. We can discuss places on the public thread, but let's keep the final decision private, via FReepmail....

    Trash piles up as St. Louis looks for ways to save moneyBy Jake Wagman ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 01/13/2010 ST. LOUIS — The next round of budget cuts at City Hall may lower costs by letting the waste pile up. Officials facing an austere fiscal year are eyeing the Dumpster for savings, trying out a plan to reduce trash pickup from twice a week — for years the norm in the city — to once a week. It's a shift that many smaller cities around the region — and some bigger ones across the country — have already made as their...

    NEW YORK -- Mark McGwire finally came clean Monday, admitting he used steroids when he broke baseball's home run record in 1998. McGwire said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Monday that he used steroids on and off for nearly a decade. "I wish I had never touched steroids," McGwire said in a statement. "It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era." McGwire also used human growth hormone, a person close to McGwire said, speaking on condition of anonymity because McGwire didn't...

    Here is video of local news coverage of a shooting rampage that took place at a St. Louis ABB plant. Reports were still sketchy at the time of this coverage, but employees were telling the media that a former employee was the shooter and that he shot at least three people. Later reports now indicate he shot five people, killing one of them. He is still at large at the time of this posting. . . . (VIDEO)
