In the midst of a global pandemic, it is important to have some sort of escape that allows you to get your mind off of things. Rock climbing has become a great way for these students from Missouri Baptist University to get outside and enjoy creation. When they spend time on the rock wall all of the stress from the pandemic goes out the window for a bit.
Missouri Baptist University alum Wesley Smith, from Quincy, Illinois, makes his way to the toughest part of the climb up a vertical rock wall at West Tyson County Park in Eureka, Missouri. Smith, who is currently enrolled at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, was one of several men from MBU to venture out recently for a day of climbing. Photo by Patrick Griffey
Setting aside the heat, working for the Entertainment Department at Six Flags was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Alongside her pals, Bugs Bunny and Sylvester the cat, Madelyn Shotton found fun in escorting the gang just as much as being the character for the day. As an escort, Shotton answered guests’ questions about the park, took family photos and made sure the Tunes followed their daily schedule.
It’s that time of year again for festive decorations and glowing lights distracting you as you drive down the streets. I’ve driven all around St. Louis in search of some of the best Christmas lights around, and this is what I’ve found.

Here are just a few of the houses that caught my eye as I embarked on this mission beginning the day after Thanksgiving. Some went all out and others kept it simple and personal to their home. Hopefully, they give you a little motivation to spread the Christmas cheer and decorate with lights this year.
