As Priscilla, filmmaker Sofia Coppola’s engrossing new film begins, it’s 1959 and 14-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu (Cailee Spaeny) is living in Wiesbaden, West Germany, where her stepfather, an Air Force captain, is stationed. Lonely for her friends back in Texas, Priscilla spends a lot of time painting her nails, spritzing her hair with Aqua Net, and reading fan magazines about the stars of the day, among them Fabian, Bobby Darin and that paradigm-shifting sensation, Elvis Presley (Jacob Elordi), who just happens to be in Germany, too, serving out his own military service.
This past week, 31-year-old Megan Gaither left her job as an English teacher after it came to light she had previously moonlighted as a creator of adult content on OnlyFans.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell has dropped his bid for U.S. Senate to run for Congress against Representative Cori Bush. In a statement Monday, Bell said he intended to run for senate because he felt "our future as a democracy was in peril" after Hawley "long abandoned Democratic principles" — but he's now feeling a call to a different role. "Over the last several weeks, as I've campaigned around the state, I've heard one refrain from Democrats above all else: yes, we need you in Washington, but St. Louis needs you in the House of Representatives," he said.
Just two weeks after he allegedly assaulted two different Washington University students near campus, a Florissant man faces a slew of new criminal charges stemming from a series of seemingly random violent attacks in the Central West End.

As a biology professor who studies circadian rhythms, Washington University’s Erik Herzog has strong feelings about the seasonal time changes that will have us “falling back” on November 5 — namely, that we need to scrap them. The former president of the Society for Research on Biological Rhythms is proud to have led the organization to a position that has now been adopted by all of the medical and scientific societies that have taken a position on time changes: That permanent Standard Time is the preferred schedule, and our twice-annual adjustments are not worth the damage.

As I waited for KISS to take the stage at Enterprise Center on Tuesday night, one of the final shows on the final leg of their final End of the Road Tour, I couldn’t help but imagine some young kid decades ago falling in love with KISS and therefore rock and roll music. That kid would be middle-aged by now, probably with teenage kids of his own, and here he would be on this night facing a full-circle moment.
The last outpost of the Boardwalk Waffles empire has shuttered. A visit to the ice cream and waffle spot's former south county location at 4348 Telegraph Road found it to be closed and without its former signage. Eric Moore opened his first Boardwalk Waffles & Ice Cream in Maplewood in 2017, and the idea of a scoop of ice cream served atop a waffle seemed to be a hit.
James Harnden has been a longtime activist for cannabis legalization, ever since he got slapped with a low-level felony possession charge for having an ounce of weed. The 56-year old Rockford, Illinois, resident says that charge has cost him job opportunities for 30 years.

The Burney Sisters, the Columbia, Missouri-based sibling combo that specializes in preternaturally tight harmonies, sublime Americana originals and instrument-swapping musical dexterity, have been wowing audiences since before the girls were old enough to ride in the front seat of a car. April Shafer first put instruments in her daughters' hands when the girls were still pre-K. They were busking on Columbia sidewalks when their ages had barely reached double digits and were performing publicly as the Burney Sisters when Olivia was 13 and Emma was 10.
The Missouri Speaker of the House Dean Plocher was in damage control this morning when he appeared on an Internet-streaming show for his first interview since fellow Republicans began calling for his resignation — a clamor stemming from revelations in the Missouri Independent that Plocher sought reimbursement from the legislature for expenses his campaign had already paid for.
