We want to send a big shout-out to Patch user Joan Lauterbach, who has uploaded a bunch of landscapes and barnhouse photos to Ballwin-Ellisville Patch. Joan lives at the Gambrill Gardens Senior Community in Ellisville.

And for fun, here's a random comment posted last week on a very old story from B-E Patch. We ran "Wendy's Signs Ballwin Lease" more than a year ago, on June 4, 2011. Sandra Eskridge commented last week on the article. Give her comment a read and tell us what you think below.
I was very disappointed when the Ellisville Wendy's went out of business a few years ago. Personally, I don't think it was because of a lack of customers as they always seemed very busy each time I went there. I am excited to find them locating in Ballwin at the Valasis Park Location. Makes it convenient for picnics! Mr. Frosty is a must during the summer--Slimfast shakes just don't cut it!
If it also includes an office building in the development, this could be just what Ballwin needs in its plazas. There is really very little office space here and the retail/store fronts most recently brought in seem" unattractive." This begs the question as to why we don't attract more upscale re-development when a business leaves Ballwin along the Manchester Road corridor? I guess it all has to do with taxes the City can earn from a retail store vs. a business office--but let's think on it just the same.
