OUT 418--STL-TIDBITZ AND MORE!

Hello OUTTOWNERS

It is Wednesday

Its OUTOWN TIME

First, history has been made all over again as Barack Obama clinched the Democratic nomination. Now the hard work begins for the White House. According to reports, Obama is set to be in St. Louis on next Monday night. Details on his appearance -- and whether it will be open to the public -- are forthcoming. The visit highlights the importance of Missouri in the upcoming November elections, during which it's believed the state's 11 electoral votes are up for grabs.
POSTNOTE: It was reported that the event will be CLOSED fundraiser meaning notta to the open public. Bummer!

This month reps Black Music Month. All this month OUTTOWN will do bio bitz on some of the St. Louis areas “unsung” musicians.
This week we spotlight Bobby McClure (PIC ABOVE). McClure (born April 21, 1942, Chicago, Illinois - died November 13, 1992, Los Angeles, California) was an American soul singer. McClure was raised in St. Louis and sang in church and gospel groups in his youth. He sang with The Soul Stirrers (then led by Sam Cooke) in the 1950's, and moved into secular music soon after, singing with Bobby & the Vocals, Big Daddy Jenkins, and STL jazz guy Oliver Sain. McClure scored two hit singles in the U.S. in 1965( "Don't Mess Up a Good Thing" (1965) US #33, US Black Singles #5 with St. Louis singer Fontella Bass) and "You'll Miss Me (When I'm Gone)" (1965) US #91, US Black Singles #27.Thereafter, he helped launch the careers of Little Milton and Fontella Bass; during this time he also played with Otis Clay and Shirley Brown. McClure moved on from music in the 1970s, working in an Illinois jail as a corrections officer, though he recorded some singles in the 1980s.McClure suffered a brain aneurysm in 1992 and died of complications from a stroke soon after.



And now on to the newz:







Beside the stormy weather and the supposed Imbev bouyout of Anheuser Busch, power outages in the County, err body’s talking about the Call to Oneness March (PIC ON RIGHT BY WILEY PRICE OF ST. LOUIS AMERICAN) that happened last Sunday. As many as 20,000 black men (WE SAY ITS WAS MORE LIKE 50,000) will march Sunday against crime and other ills that have infested some St. Louis neighborhoods. But organizers say the tough work begins thereafter.
Black ministers, businessmen and community leaders have been working behind the scenes since February on an initiative to reduce crime and violence and reclaim struggling neighborhoods in St. Louis and its inner ring suburbs.
The "Call to Oneness" campaign was launched this weekend with panel discussions and neighborhood meetings on what organizers are calling a "state of emergency" in the black community. The weekend's events culminated with Sunday's march through a once proud, but now troubled north St. Louis neighborhood. Long-term activities include outreach to gang members, mentoring and going door-to-door in neighborhoods to gather crime information. We commend the CTO organization for making the first steps to solving the problem. The world needs to see whats up!


University of Missouri-St. Louis fired the longtime manager Patty Wente of public radio station KWMU Monday after a review of management and financial practices at the station. Wente had been general manager at KWMU (90.7 FM) for nearly 20 years. The university had little to say Monday about the allegations from current and former employees and an outside audit that triggered the review. A spokesman declined to say what was found in the review."KMWU is a St. Louis treasure," UMSL Chancellor Thomas George said in a statement. "This action is being taken to protect that treasure for the university and the community." Wente, who has a long history in public radio and has won several awards for her work, could not be reached for comment. Well, after looking at the pic, we can see how one may see why she may not want to comment. WHOOSH!

There is a report that a man who claims he was kidnapped from the Chicago area and found alive in the trunk of a car at Lambert Airport has made conflicting reports and may have done this to himself. Reports say that the man was making noise loud enough for someone walking through the east terminal's parking garage to hear it. That person called Lambert Police and the man was rescued. He told police he was from Evanston, Illinois and kidnapped from Skokie, Illinois.Lambert police are referring all questions to detectives in Skokie, IL who will only confirm there is an investigation underway.

Family and prosecutors are stunned as a St. Charles man Kelly Wadlow accused of killing his wife with a pain killer patch suddenly pleads guilty. This development occurred on the first day of the murder trial where a member of the victim's family had to be stunned by police. It had been about a week since Wadlow's family had heard from her back in May of 2004. When no one answered the door they became even more worried and called police. When A St. Charles County deputy burst into Greg and Kelly Wadlow's O'Fallon area mobile home he found Kelly dead in bed, her husband confused. Deputies thought it looked like an accidental overdose of pain killers, but Kelly's family thought differently. Attorney Rob Goldson's investigation eventually convinced the prosecutor to look into Kelly's death as possibly being a crime. A closer look at the autopsy showed that Kelly died of a lethal dose of Fentanyl through patches that were prescribed for Greg. After a closer look, charges were filed. Greg almost entered a guilty plea but instead the case went to trial then suddenly ended on the same day it started. After hearing the prosecution lay out its case, Kelly's brother, Lonnie Hlavarty, erupted. According to witnesses and the attorneys, Lonnie tried to climb the rail while shouting "killer" at the defendant. Wow, drama for sure in this case.

One of the largest and oldest local homebuilders, Taylor-Morley Homes Inc., has gone out of business, taken down by a steep decline in demand for new houses. The Creve Coeur-based company shut down Friday, said Bill Taylor, chairman chief executive. Taylor said he realized in March that he would no longer be able to cover all his debts and overhead costs. Last week, the builder sent a letter to recent buyers informing them that it was shutting down on May 30.

39-year-old constriction worker Cedrick Gapser of East St. Louis was killed in an accident in a highway construction zone. Gasper was sitting on the rear bumper of a company pickup truck when a tractor-trailer hit several large orange construction barrels being used to direct traffic on Illinois Route 15. The tractor-trailer then hit the truck head on, catapulting Gasper. Gasper died later at a St. Louis hospital, while the tractor-trailer's driver was treated at a Belleville hospital and released. Gasper worked for a company called Illinois Excavators. Another Illinois Excavators worker sustained minor injuries while jumping from the pickup truck moments before the accident.

A 21-year-old woman and a 16-year-old girl were shot shortly before 10 p.m. at a BP gas station at Natural Bridge Avenue and North Grand Boulevard. One of the victims was in critical and unstable condition late Sunday at an area hospital, police said. The other victim's condition was unknown. Homicide detectives were handling the investigation. Police had no suspects in custody Sunday night but were interviewing witnesses






Pilot David E. Lucas was killed Sunday when the plane, which he had built himself, crashed in a farm field while he was making a test flight before taking a friend on a flight. The pilot was alone in the plane. Authorities identified him as David E. Lucas, 52, of Chesterfield, an 18-year veteran of the Creve Coeur Fire Department as a firefighter, emergency medical technician and ladder truck driver. The pilot had taken off from Creve Coeur Airport late Sunday morning and crashed shortly after 11 a.m. The crash site was about 1,000 feet off Greens Bottom Road, near Katy Trail State Park and the Missouri River in the Harvester area of St. Charles County. No distress signal was sent from the two-seat Acrosport II biplane before it plunged to the ground. Witnesses saw the plane just go straight down, really hard. Investigators are unsure what caused the plane to crash but that weather conditions were good at the time and that the plane might have experienced a mechanical failure. Hmmm, why does it seem like this could have been a suicide. We are just saying.


Remember June 19!



A towboat on the Missouri River was forced to ground near West Alton early Friday, after it started taking on water. Authorities Friday afternoon were trying to clean up more than 2,000 gallons of fuel that spilled into the river. The Omaha, a towboat owned by Excell Marine of Cincinnati, had left Wood River, Ill., and was headed upriver when it hit an object and started taking on water about 2 a.m., said Lt. Christian Barger, spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard in St. Louis.The captain, pilot and five crew members were able to ground the sinking vessel north of Pelican Island and make it to shore safely, he said.

Exiting St. Louis Public school Superintendent Diana Bourisaw’s term wil end July 1. The Special Administrative Board of the St. Louis Public Schools has appointed John A. Wright to serve as the district's interim superintendent until a permanent superintendent is hired this fall.Wright has worked as an educator for nearly 35 years. Most recently, he served as interim superintendent in the Normandy School District. Rick Sullivan, president and CEO of the administrative board, said Wright will oversee the district's day-to-day-operations this summer and help facilitate the transition between Diana Bourisaw, the outgoing superintendent, and the hiring of a permanent superintendent."Dr. Wright's interim appointment will be effective July 1, 2008, to allow some overlap before Dr. Bourisaw leaves at the end of July," According to reports, Bourisaw has a job lined up in Cincinnati to run the public schools there. So we guess former SLPS prez Veronica Obrien has got her wish now?

St. Louis Comptroller Darlene Green is giving STL citizens the word of Amnesty the city is giving to those with outstanding tickets. Folk can go and pay down or pay all of their tickets. They can do this this Friday at the City Building on Olive. Its only for moving violations , not parking tickets. DOH!

The Illinois government ended their session Saturday without a balanced budget! ' Gov. Rod Blagojevich declared in a Chicago news conference on Monday, about 36 hours after the Legislature sent him a fiscal year 2009 budget that even its legislative authors admit isn't balanced. Blagojevich's administration estimates there is a $2.1 billion shortfall in the budget bill passed by the Legislature. Others have offered different estimates, but virtually everyone agrees there isn't enough revenue in the plan to cover expenditures.That means Blagojevich will have to unilaterally trim some of what's in the $59 billion document, which is state government's financial blueprint for the fiscal year that starts July 1.

There also was unfinished biz cuz of the shortfall. Here are the items that could get the GOV calling an emergency session before the new session in the fall.

The Senate approved a measure restricting food with trans fats in school cafeterias but it didn't get a vote in the House. Yes, important.

Anger at Blagojevich fueled interest in a constitutional amendment to let people toss politicians out of office. The House voted to put the amendment on the ballot this fall, but the Senate wouldn't go along and approved its own, more sweeping version. Hmm, a paycheck?

An attempt to amend the state's minimum wage law to remove the provision that allows workers under 18 to be paid 50 cents below the regular minimum wage stayed put in the Illinois Senate. That’s fair.

A plan stalled in the Senate to legalize marijuana as an alternative medicine for people with debilitating illnesses like AIDS or cancer who use marijuana to ease their symptoms. Whats the hold up?



The General Assembly couldn't reach a final agreement on setting up a system to encourage Internet betting on horse races run in Illinois. Not important!

Rep. Greg Harris failed to collect enough support for legislation to allow same-sex couples to form civil unions. The bill gives same-sex couples the same the rights as married couples to estate benefits, child custody or adoption, property ownership. Let them marry and share in the agony of straight marriages. LOL.

Alcoholic ice cream? That’s what was sold at this year’;s Taste of Clayton last weekend. With winning results. Frost on the Vine, a Chesterfield ice cream and gourmet foods store, was selling wine ice cream. It was cold, creamy — and 5 percent alcohol contents selling wine ice cream."Eat an ice cream, catch a buzz," joked Blase Bottcher, of St. Louis who was quoted as saying in reports> We are waiting on the vodka flavor actually. LOL




Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill appeared Thursday on the Colbert Report at
on Comedy Central.
McCaskill, a Democrat, has been campaigning heavily for Senator Barack Obama's presidential bid.
Comedian host Stephen Colbert started off by questioning McCaskill as to how she could not endorse a fellow woman for president, Sen. Hillary Clinton.
"That gender door swings both ways," McCaskill tells Colbert.
"If the gender door swings both ways, then you may not be a woman," Colbert responded.
At the beginning of the interview, McCaskill present Colbert with a Missouri state flag from her Senate office.
Colbert placed the flag on the floor of his set, saying "this is not going on the floor."
In unrelated newz, the buzz going on was that McCaskill was on the short list to run as VP for Obama. But to much wishful thinking, it was more wish and thought. It was repoerted that she had no interest in running.

To catch her TV appearance on the Colbert report go to :

University Loop mogul Joe Edwards was heard on the Charlie Brennan Show Tuesday on KMOX talking about his speaking to the St. Louis Business Association on June 18 at the Coronado Hotel in St. Louis. He also talked about two upcoming projects. One, the Moonrise Hotel, a $15 million seven-story, 120-room boutique hotel at 6177 Delmar between his Pageant and Pin-Up Bowl locations. Edwards said he planned to work with Kiku Obata & Co., which won an international award for the Pin-Up Bowl design. The hotel also will house a restaurant and bar called the Eclipse, a rooftop terrace overlooking Forest Park and 10 suites named after STL Walk of Fame inductees. It is reported that the project will break ground by the end of the year, The other project is the forthcoming trolley that will connect the The Delmar loop to the Missouri Historical Museum. He said that he has earmarked 200K for a feasible study , $1 million from the Feds to purchase the trolleys and the constriction of fixed train tracks. There was no date as of when this project will go into effect. He also talked about his life as a Delmar loop mogul, the possibilities of erecting a statue of STL native rocker Chuck Berry and that The Delmar loop was named one of the 10 bets streets in American from the American Planning Association. Next up, changing University City to Edwards City. Okay? Now if he can only give Wizard of Oz star Mickey Carroll his star, he would be cool with us!








And speaking of Chuck Berry, KSDK anchor Art Holliday is back in the documentary mode with his flick on STL rock pioneer Johnnie Johnson who help spearhead Berry’s career in the early 1950s. .

In a blog to his readers he said, “ In several weeks I'll be in Washington DC to interview Rep. John Conyers, longtime member of Congress, one of the founders of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. In September 1999 in front of Congress, Conyers made a well-researched speech honoring Johnnie Johnson. He later nominated Johnnie's biography for a Pulitzer. It's fair to say Conyers is a music fan and I hope he has a great story about his interest in and support of Johnnie. I also pray that C-Span recorded Conyers speech so I can use it in "Johnnie Be Good". Later this summer look for a new documentary trailer on the website.

On the script of the documentary he said, “ Still working on the first draft of my script. Right now I'm writing a section about Johnnie's experiences in the Marine Corps, including several recent interviews I did with several members of the Montford Point Marines. These men, along with Johnnie, were among the first black soldiers to integrate the Marines Corps during WWII. Montford Point was the segregated bootcamp for black Marines.”

On the funding of the project he said, “ I continue to raise completion funds. Thanks to music fan Charley Taylor for hosting a recent fundraiser at his home. With the help of the Higher Education Channel I recently applied for a grant from The Chrysler Foundation. A woman in Washington who helped me get the interview with Rep. Conyers took an interest in the documentary, talked about it with the head of the Chrysler Foundation, and I was asked to submit a grant proposal.”

On the materials for the documentary he said, “ I Recently received a number of photos of Johnnie Johnson with Aerosmith for use in the documentary. A few years ago, Joe Perry saw that Johnnie was performing in Boston and had his manager track down Johnnie and invite him to his house to hang out and possibly record some tracks. The photos show Johnnie, Joe Perry, Steven Tyler, and other band members. The Aerosmith cd "Honkin' on Bobo" contains several tracks with Johnnie providing piano licks. Thanks to John Bionelli, road manager for Aerosmith for making those photos magically appear in my email inbox. And I'm still on the trail of my Keith Richards interview. Maybe July. I'll keep you posted on that and more...as the journey continues.

Yes it does. If you want t more info about this project go to

The eighth annual Jazz & Heritage Fest was treated more kindly by Mother Nature — but only for a while. The festival kicked off at 12:30 p.m. with slightly cloudy skies and a few puddles left by a downpour Friday night.



But by the time renowned pianist Joe Sample (PIC ABOVE) and his group took the Emerson Stage at 5:30 p.m., those clouds had become darker and more ominous.

Sample was joined by vocalist Randy Crawford. But at 6:15, just as she was about to begin her third song, festival director Cindy Prost advised the audience that the festival area had to be evacuated because of the threat of thunderstorms and lightning.

A majority of the crowd took shelter at adjacent Clayton High School. Prost updated everyone at 7 p.m., saying there was still hope headliner Cassandra Wilson would perform. But by 7:35, Wilson's Emerson Stage performance and vocalist Brian Owens' Soul School Stage performance were officially canceled. Last year’s performances were also interrupted because of bad weather.












There was a reception at the Contemporary Art Museum for the visual artists whose work is contributed Art the Vote campaign May 28. Nationally renowned artists Willie Cole (PICTURED ) , Peregrine Honig, Tom Huck, Mark Newport, Martha Rosler, Annett Lemieux, and May Tveit all created original artwork for ART THE VOTE billboards. In the tradition of art as an effective force in political activism, artists Willie Cole, Peregrine Honig, Tom Huck, Mark Newport, Martha Rosler, Annett Lemieux and May Tveit, through the ART THE VOTE initiative lend their images to accessible public spaces to encourage the public to become more aware of current issues and take action through voting. ART THE VOTE (ATV) is an unprecedented artist-driven effort to motivate, register and turn out Missouri voters using the work of contemporary artists to highlight the critical issues faction our state, nation and planet. ART THE VOTE will rock the roadsides this September and October with more than 70 artist-designed billboards and artist registration efforts throughout the state of Missouri. The ART THE VOTE launch will feature the unveiling of the effort’s first billboard image, an announcement of a public contest to select an additional billboard artist and the registration of voters.

STL rapper Hakeem shot a video for his radio sick-hit, “Thick Wit it” last week at at different venues in the STL including club Society. It was directed by Michael “Captain Video” Dean and filmed by Dana Christian of SPIT FLIX. The video also has cameos by rapper Tiffany Foxx, rap trio June 5 and the Pimo crew. The video we are sure will be hitting “BET’s 106 and Park” as we speak. .











Upcoming R&B singer Oli was hustlin his CD sampler near Vintage Vinyl in the U City Loop last weekend. The CD entitled “MPower” consists of songs like his new single, “Be Mine” ( feat.
