Woerther Elementary School in Ballwin is one of only three St. Louis area schools selected for this recognition as a result of its staff's effective character fitness program. See why Rams tickets are involved with this designation.

Character fitness combines health and nutrition efforts, character development and physical exercise. Schools that achieve a mastery rating in those categories are recognized with the honor of being named a Model School. Woerther Elementary Principal Jane Levy attributed the school's success with character fitness to physical education teachers Carol Earley and Amy Gentry.

Letter to Editor: "This time of year generally brings out the best in people, and we have certainly seen that here at the American Red Cross."
Thursday, December 20, 2012
This Letter to the Editor is from Cindy Erickson, Regional CEO, American Red Cross. This time of year generally brings out the best in people, and we have certainly seen that here at the American Red Cross. Because Service to the Armed Forces is a key mission area for the Red Cross, during the month of November, we asked the community to help send holiday greetings to service members around the world, their families and veterans in homes and hospitals. While a holiday card might sound like a small thing, we hear every year that it means a great deal to those who are away from their homes and/or families. Last year, the American Red Cross collected and sent an amazing 1.3 million cards around the world… and 4,000 of those cards came from …

The St. Louis Rams have outlined a renovation plan for the Edward Jones Dome that is estimated to cost $700 million.
The Rams want us to buy them a new house. Just fixing up its current home—the Edward Jones Dome—won't do. Instead, the St. Louis football franchise expects an extreme makeover, to the tune of $700 million, as it is estimated by a company hired by the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission (CVC) to analyze the team's counter proposal to a the CVC's own plan to upgrade the Edward Jones Dome with a $124 million facelift. If someone doesn't cough up the $700 mil to redo the Dome, it is feared the team will take its football and go home to Los Angeles, where it came from before it was the St. Louis franchise. All of this wrangling was set in motion in 1995 when the team negotiated a 30-year lease with the CVC. It was stipulated that the …
