A talk with the new owners of the 60-year-old Ladue Barber Shop.
The Ladue Barber Shop, at 9844 Clayton Road is kind of like a step back in time. There’s nostalgia everywhere, just like one would find at Blueberry Hill in the Loop, Carl’s Drive in in Brentwood or the Olivette Diner. But there's only family photos on the wall. Not head shots of celebrities. This is much like the tucked-away barbershop at the Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis. Ladue Barber Shop serves as headquarters for the sports elite. Cardinals’ pitcher Chris Carpenter brings his family in for cuts, the same goes for former Rams QB Mark Bulger, current Cardinals’ Joe Kelly and Matt Adams and former PGA touring professional Jay Williamson. However this is no franchise type of operation. The rules are payment by cash or …

A KMOX petition campaign is gaining steam and prominent Missouri State Senators are backing the idea with legislation.
In the days since Stan Musial passed away Saturday night, tributes have poured in from around St. Louis, the baseball world and beyond. Everyone, it seems, has a Stan Musial story to tell. He may already have a statue outside Busch Stadium, but something even bigger could be on the way. KMOX Radio has started a petition campaign urging the Governors of Missouri and Illiniois to name new bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Musial's honor. KMOX reports the bridge will be finished next year. Late Tuesday afternoon, State Senators John Lamping (R-Ladue) and Eric Schmidt (R-Glendale) confirmed that they had filed legislation on the issue.

Everyone's got a story about the St. Louis Cardinals' legend, right? Musial died Saturday.
Stan "The Man" Musial, the St. Louis Cardinals legend who was widely considered "the greatest Cardinal," died on Saturday. That's the news that broke on Saturday. Today, we're interested in your stories about the pitcher-cum-outfielder who played for the Redbirds from 1941 to 1963. As a relatively newcomer to St. Louis (only here 11 years!) I can't say I have a lot of memories of Musial beyond meeting countless compatriots at the Musial statue at the last two versions of Busch Stadium. How about you? What do you remember about Musial?

The St. Louis Cardinal icon and baseball hall of fame outfielder passed away Saturday night.
Stan Musial, a giant in the St. Louis community and the baseball world for more than half a century, died Saturday at his home in Ladue. "Stan the Man passed peacefully at home at 5:45 pm tonight of natural causes. Life will never be the same without baseball's perfect knight," his grandson, Brian Musial Schwarze said via Twitter Saturday evening. Musial was 92 and had been in poor health in recent years.

Said the Cardinals in posting word of Musial's death: Musial, father of three daughters and a son, was unpretentious, untroubled, friendly and folksy. The…

I hope the overpriced star finds happiness at the beach.
Albert Pujols, I am on the record for being mad at you. I’ve always had a theory: Give politicians or athletes a microphone, and they will go out and destroy themselves. You told an adoring throng of California Angel cheerleaders this whole thing is not about the money. It's about support and respect. Huh? Albert, you’re telling us the Cardinal fans did not vie enough for your affection throughout 11 seasons? The laid-back, sun-worshipping West Coast beachers will be more fervent in your support. Forget it. No one can dish out more loyal support than Cardinal Nation. No one. Case in point: When Mark McGwire was on active duty in the late 1990s and through the mid 2000s, upwards of 20,000 fans would jam Busch Stadium just to watch him …
