When Elizabeth Fitzgerald was in college working toward a degree in education, she was asked to compose her mission statement as a future educator. At that time, she likely had no idea just how far her mission to create a love of learning in children would travel or how many children she would reach.
Chester Lampkin is a familiar face to thousands of St. Louisans who know him as the friendly guy delivering the weather with a smile each morning on KSDK-Newschannel 5. We recently chatted with him to get to know him a little better off the screen.

It’s as synonymous to St. Louis as the Gateway Arch: Cardinals baseball. It’s an almost year-round passion for so many in this city. We spend winters pining for it, springs anxiously awaiting its return to town, summers immersed in it, and autumns hoping it lasts just a little longer. Millions of eyes are glued to the action as the birds on the bat take to the field for that most beloved of sports. But do we all see the game in the same way? How different is it to experience baseball through the eye of the camera lens? We recently sat down with Dilip Vishwanat, freelance photographer for Getty Images, to examine the job of a professional sports photographer and learn how he tells the game’s story.
Something very sweet is happening off North Broadway in downtown St. Louis at the Bissinger's Chocolate factory, where award-winning fine chocolate and confections are made. Bissinger’s chocolates is a favorite among many St. Louisians. Today’s fans are in good company, as these fine chocolates and confections date back to 17th-century France where the treats were enjoyed by the likes of Napoleon Bonaparte and Louis XIV.
