Hello OUTTOWners

Its Wednesday

Its time to get OUT…TOWN

Before we get to the new of the newz:




The Riverfront Times is having yet another poll for yawl to pick the Best of again. They are currently doing The Best of 2008: Black Belt Reader’s Poll where the RFT celebrates the who’s who and the what’s to do in the STL. So, to all of our OUTTOWN fans out there, we would like for you to vote for our blog, OUTTOWN for Best Blog. Last year Mayor Francis Slay’s blog won. (Let’s not make the same mistake twice shall we? ) You can vote by going on RFT’s website at
http://www.riverfronttimes.com/ The deadline is Sept. 8 Voters will be published in the RFT’s Sept 25 issue.

BREAKING NEWZ:


East St. Louis native trackster Dawn Harper won a Gold Medal at the Olympics Tuesday! She won it in the 100m hurdles in Bejing! Harper won the women's 100m hurdles in Beijing after teammate Lolo Jones clipped a hurdle and surrendered what appeared to be a sure victory. Jones staggered to a seventh-place finish. The third American, Damu Cherry, finished fourth. Harper finished in a personal-best 12.54 seconds. Australia's Sally McLELLAN and Canada's Priscilla LOPES-SCHLIEP followed in 12.64.
Harper grew up in East St. Louis, was a member of the UCLA track team and is coached by Bob Kersee, who added another Olympic champion to a long personal list that includes the East St. Louis brother-sister tandem of Al and Jackie Joyner. Jackie is Kersee's wife. Harper grabbed the last spot on the American team at the Olympic trials and, though the American hurdles team is strong, wasn't considered among the medal favorites. Wow talk about luck all around. Well we know for sure, the East Side will have a celebration for her when she returns to the East Boogie fa sho!




And now to the newz:




The St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners is beginning to interview candidates for chief and says it expects to have the process completed by the end of October.

Thirteen members of the department have applied for the post, which state laws says must be filled internally.

David Heath, who is the department's deputy chief of the Bureau of Professional Standards, is the officer liaison to the board and will be assisting in the selection.

At the Police Board's meeting this morning, Board President Chris Goodson said finding a new chief is the board's top priority

Later, while talking to reporters, Goodson said it needs to be done as quickly as possible and that all of the candidates will be asked enough questions to determine if they are, in any way, involved in the towing scandal that is now the subject of a federal investigation.

However there is riff goin on between the Board and one of its members STL Mayor Francis Slay. The Board is being careful in regards to the 13 candidates (4 being women and one being an African American man) cuz it is not sure if the candidates had any relationships with the various scandals yet Slay wants the selection done ASAP. What’s also interesting, in an unrelated tidbit, local radio and TV ads are still running the commercial in regards to recruiting members to the police academy with former Police chief Joe Mokwa’s voice still being used in the voice over!


Thousands in Chicago attended the funeral of Chicago native comedian Bernie Mac last Saturday. One of the celebrity mourners was ST. Louis native comic and Mac’s colleague Cedric the Entertainer. As he scanned the crowd of more than 6,000 gathered on Chicago's South Side to remember Bernie Mac on Saturday, he cracked that the comedy king was "still the hottest ticket in town."Fans, friends and fellow celebrities descended on the House of Hope megachurch to bid their farewells to a man who never forgot his humble Chicago roots. Hundreds of mourners had never even met Mac — or had met him only long enough to shake his hand, get an autograph or thank him for representing his neighborhood.
Mayor Richard Daley recalled that Mac was in his office recently, asking how he could help fight violent crime in the city."He wanted to help get children away from a life of crime and violence," Daley said during the service. "That's why he's the king of comedy. He never lost his soul in Chicago."
Mac died Aug. 9 at age 50 of what his publicist said were complications from pneumonia. He had been at Chicago's Northwestern Memorial Hospital since the middle of July.Samuel L. Jackson, who co-stars with Mac in the upcoming movie "Soul Men," spoke at the church, saying he knew Mac "was having some health issues, but he always said to me every morning that he was always good."
Isaac Hayes, who died Sunday, also stars in the movie, and Hayes' music was played during the service. Jackson observed that Mac didn't mind the loss of privacy that comes with fame. "He never turned that kid down for an autograph," Jackson said. "He always had time to shake a hand. He was always that kid from Chicago who wanted to make everybody happy and everybody laugh."
The service included the reading of condolence letters from children; from Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, an Illinois senator; and from Mac's beloved White Sox baseball team. Mac's comedy routines were played on large video screens with off-color words bleeped out.
Outside, traffic was tied up for blocks, vendors sold memorial T-shirts for $10, and Chicago waiter Timothy Strickland manned a makeshift shrine featuring photos, including Mac's 1971 eighth-grade basketball team picture. A sign read: "Thank you, Bernie, for showing that good people do come from Englewood."Mac grew up on the South Side in the Woodlawn and Englewood neighborhoods.
His co-stars from the documentary "The Original Kings of Comedy" — Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley and Cedric The Entertainer — took the stage together at the church.
Hughley recalled that he and the others eagerly awaited Mac's stage attire each night. He said: "Bernie would wear colors that crayons hadn't even thought of yet."He said he met Mac in Detroit, but that Mac always wanted to talk about Chicago."All he talked about was his family and this city," Hughley said. "He loved this city."

The investigation of Dem. Presidential hopeful Barack Obama's plane that was forced to endure an emergency landing last month after the candidate's aircraft suffered mechanical problems over Missouri, emerged this week. A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Authority confirmed that there had been an emergency landing in St Louis last month after the pilot notified air traffic control of problems. It is understood that the pilot of Mr Obama's plane had warned that he was having problems controlling the "pitch" of the plane and requested emergency assistance. A controversy erupted over the landing. According to a US news channel, control tower tapes show that the pilot of Mr Obama's plane demanded an emergency landing. At the time, both the FAA and Midwest Airlines insisted that there was no emergency. A spokesman for the FAA said that she had said minutes after the incident happened that there had been no emergency because of what she had been told by the agency's public affairs staff for air traffic control. The control tower tapes reveal the pilot reported he no longer had total control of the aircraft. After the plane landed, Mr Obama said jokingly:" I just thought we'd spice things up a little bit today," and referred to the incident as a "little glitch". State authorities claimed the National Transportation Safety Board was investigating the incident but refused to rule out whether national agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation were also investigating the incident.
Hmmm, someone is in hot water over this one. In related news, Obama is said to choose his Veep for the Presidency by Friday via txt and in person at the spot where he announced his Presidential bid in Springfield, Ill. Rumors are saying the veep candidates include The list of possibilities, meanwhile, is believed to be down to Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, who planned to campaign in his home state Thursday with Obama. Why do we think we will probably find out before the slated days of Obama selecting a running mate?












Beer mogul InBev were in the Lou this week working with its buyee Anheuser Busch as well as the Teamsters, the union that AB is with. The union leaders and Imbev met at Crowne Plaza Hotel As for blue-collar brewery workers, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, which represents more than 7,000 of them nationwide, has voiced skepticism about InBev's promise of shallow cuts. The labor contract between the Teamsters and A-B expires Feb. 28. InBev and Busch are negotiating the terms of a consulting agreement that will start when the $52 billion deal closes and run through all of 2013. Busch will not have an executive job at Anheuser-Busch once the deal becomes final, possibly by the end of the year. But according to the description of his new gig, he will be a highly paid adviser to InBev chief executive Carlos Brito.

As part of the consulting job — which InBev and Busch began to discuss shortly before Anheuser-Busch's board approved the takeover — Busch will receive $10.35 million as a lump sum and collect additional fees of about $120,000 a month. Those monthly payments would add up to about $7.2 million, assuming a start date of January 2009. He'll also get a personal security detail, free access to events sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, and other benefits.He will also receive about $33.6 million from the accelerated vesting of stock options, restricted stock and deferred stock units relating to the InBev buyout. That doesn't include about $55 million from assets that had already vested. InBev's takeover awaits the approval of regulators, stockholders holding a majority of A-B shares, and shareholders controlling three-fourths of InBev's stock. InBev said it has already lined up support from its own shareholders representing more than 63 percent of its stock. Well we see the new CEO will sit pretty, but what about the grunt workers who actually make the beer?

In unrelated Teamsters news, The Teamsters National Black Caucus (TNBC) will hold its 33nd Annual Educational Conference and Banquet this week and ending August 24 at the Crowne Plaza Downtown in St. Louis, Missouri. This year’s multi-faceted conference will continue the TNBC's time-honored traditionof providing educational programs and a rich array of opportunities for intellectual and professional growth for its participants through networking.

Wachovia Corp. reached a nationwide settlement over its marketing of auction-rate securities, agreeing to buy back nearly $9 billion from investors. Separately, Missouri-based Commerce Bank offered to repurchase $545 million in auction-rate securities from as many as 140 customers. The settlement by Wachovia subsidiaries Wachovia Securities and Wachovia Capital Markets resolves allegations that they misrepresented the securities as safe, cash-equivalent products. Investors have not been able to access their money since the collapse of the auction-rate securities market. As part of the settlement, Wachovia also agreed to pay a $50 million penalty to be distributed pro rata among the states, depending on each state’s investment totals.The Wachovia settlement comes about a month after securities regulators from Missouri and other states descended on the St. Louis headquarters of Wachovia Securities, looking for information about the company’s sales practices. The offices were formerly the headquarters of A.G. Edwards, which Wachovia acquired last year for $6.8 billion.

Did yawl know that living legend Sir Paul McCartney and his gal pal, Nancy Shevell, motored through the Lou earlier this month on a cross-country road trip along old Route 66? We wonder what was playing on his radio? LOL





The block where people gathered Friday night to honor rookie police Officer Norvelle Brown on the first anniversary of his death was where he'd hoped to make a difference. Brown, 22, was fatally shot Aug. 15, 2007, while on routine patrol a few blocks northwest of Sherman Park, in the 1600 block of Semple Avenue. A candlelight vigil held in the middle of that block, with people gathered in the street and police and family speaking from a podium set in a weedy, vacant lot, was a way to honor his memory. People sang, prayed and talked of a better future on a street with lots surrounded by fences ringed with barbed wire and several boarded-up homes. Police hoped that the vigil would not only be a way to remember Brown, but it would also show they are committed to stopping violence and to foster hope. In December, a judge ruled that Antonio Alexander Andrews, the teen accused of shooting Brown, was "beyond rehabilitation under the juvenile code" and ordered him to stand trial as an adult. Andrews was charged with first-degree murder and is awaiting trial. Police allege that Andrews acted on a "spur of the moment decision" when Norvelle Brown approached him and two other teens in an alley.

Pine Lawn police are investigating what happened between the Wellston police chief and his assistant police chief that led to a physical altercation. And it left the Wellston mayor in need of medical attention. The incident happened earlier this month at the Wellston police department. Reports say the pair was possibly arguing over recent personnel changes. The mayor of Wellston tried to step in and break up the fight when he suffered a minor injury. An ambulance was called and he was treated outside the police station. Pine Lawn police say a weapon was drawn during the altercation, but did not say who drew the weapon. The assistant police chief has been suspended. Both the police chief and assistant police chief are said to want to file charges. Pine Lawn police say they will conduct a full investigation and turn their results over to the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s office.

Living legend Liza Minnelli is coming to the ST. Louis area, well sort of, more like St. Charles, to perform for the celebration of a school’s new center. An entertainer famed for her Oscar-, Tony- and Grammy-winning performances, Minnelli will open the new Lindenwood Center for the Fine & Performing Arts with a solo concert at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 11 and 12. Her concert will include some of her biggest hits - "All That Jazz," "Cabaret," "New York, New York" - as well as a tribute to her godmother, the late Kay Thompson. An actress and singer who came from St. Louis, Thompson is probably best known as the author of the "Eloise" books about a little girl who lives in the Plaza HotelThe Lindenwood Center, 2300 West Clay Avenue in St. Charles, is a $32-million addition to Lindenwood University. Tickets for "Liza Minnelli in Concert" go on sale Monday at telecharge.com (800-447-7400). The cost $125 to $200; tickets for most shows will range from $25-$75.

It seems like congratulations may be in order for Kimora and her new hubby. MediaTakeOut.com spoke with a person close to Kimora Lee Simmons who told us that Kimora and Djimon are pregnant. But almost immediately after we posted this report, Kimora's publicist Keesha Johnson issued the following statement: “Please be advised that the information you are reporting regarding my client, Kimora Lee Simmons is completely false.” Yeah, okay. Well, if she is pregnant, the child would be the first for Djimon and the third for Kimora. Guess time will tell on this one.

In a matter of weeks, hip hop star Nelly will release his fifth and looooooooooooooooong awaited CD, ”Brass Knuckles.” The question was always why his album was pushed from his original release of September 2007 to now. Well according to Hip Hop DX, Nelly set the record straight on the push backs. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

DX: Let’s get into your album. Last year you did the BET Hip Hop Awards and it seemed like that it was at that time you were making your comeback. But then the album stalled a little bit. What was going on?

Nelly: The thing was that I had to take care of my business with the label. Here my album is, but you [the label] are going to pay me. I gotta get mine! If I don’t make them give it to me now, why would you give it to me later? I don’t want to take that chance with my business. Trust you [the label]? No, trust me! You can afford to fuck up! I can’t afford to. If you fuck up, you’re going to find another hot artist to put some money behind to make some money. If I fuck up, I’m done!

Well there you have it. It was about money. I guess that’s what’s it all about and we don’t blame Nelly.
In unrelated news, The Samsung AT&T Summer Krush tour rolled through Atlanta this week and Nelly was the headliner. Blogger SOHH Gyant of http://www.sohh.com/ attended the event and wrote. “I stopped by to check out the St Louis representer. Throngs of fans and groupies alike lined the streets outside in hopes of getting an opportunity to attend this free concert. Jermaine Dupri, Bun B, and a surprise appearance by the St Lunatics made the evening tolerable. While I may think that Nelly is on the verge of being washed up, it's clear that you all emphatically disagree because the venue was filled to capacity. I definitely have to give props to Cornell. Though it was a free concert, he still managed to pack it out.”

Well alrighty then. To check Nelly out in that concert, go to

ST. Louis American City Editor Alvin Reid was a guest panelist on PB's “Donnybrook” last week and for most of the show was centered on Sen. John Edwards cheating scandal and Reid apologized to the panelists of vehemently supporting him for President. As a result, the panelists told him that he needn’t apologize of his support for Edwards. We’re with the panelists, Reid you had nothing to be ashamed of. Now what you can apologize for was thinking Edwards had a chance of getting the nomination. You can do that. LOL. Juuuuuuuuust kidding.

CABARET ST. LOUIS

Cabaret St. Louis is coming in October. The inaugural Cabaret St. Louis fall lineup will include Fran Landesman, Steve Ross, Sylvia McNair, Lee Lessack and Tony Sandler. Performances will be held at The Sheldon, Kranzberg Arts Center, The Gaslight Theatre plus additional venues. All shows begin at 8 p.m. Tickets for Cabaret St. Louis fall season go on sale Tuesday, September 2 at 10 a.m. at all MetroTix locations.


FRAN LANDESMAN returns to her roots October 22-25 at The Gaslight Theatre. The legendary proprietess of Gaslight Square’s Crystal Palace presented such artists as Barbra Streisand, The Smothers Brothers and Elaine May. But outside of St. Louis, Ms. Landesman is most well known for her own songs and shows. Spring Can Hang You Up The Most and The Ballad Of The Sad Young Man became standards and were recorded by Elle Fitzgerald, Barbra Streisand and Sarah Vaughn. Fifty years later, accompanied by her son Myles, and around the corner from the old Crystal Palace, this top songwriter and cultural icon will treat St. Louis to an evening of storytelling and song. Tickets for Fran Landesman are $35.


The smartest of the smart set and St. Louis favorite, STEVE ROSS, returns with his latest work, “To Wit: Ross on Wry – Funny Songs Throughout The Ages,” October 1-4 at the new Kranzberg Arts Center in Grand Center. Ross is no stranger to St. Louis, as he has performed many times at The Grand Center Cabaret, Cabaret in The Savoy Room and St. Louis Muny. After Ross’s 2004 St. Louis appearance, Chuck Lavazzi of KDHX Radio wrote, “The fact is, Mr. Ross has a breezy elegance on stage that’s reminiscent of Fred Astaire, Noel Coward, Cole Porter and, above all, the late and much lamented Bobby Short.” Tickets for Steve Ross are $40.



Cabaret at The Sheldon will host Grammy Winner SYLVIA MCNAIR October 16-17 for two performances only. A beloved performer at Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Ms. McNair has segued from opera to the Great American Songbook, the music with which she feels most at home. Now, instead of singing V'adoro pupille on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera, she's singing Embraceable You to rave reviews. Of McNair's Algonquin Oak Room debut, Rex Reed wrote, "Her phrasing is exemplary. Her modulations are inspired. I could get used to this kind of ecstasy." Tickets for Sylvia McNair are $45.



LEE LESSACK’S lyric baritone vocals and sophisticated yet endearing persona have made him a shining star of the international cabaret scene. His tribute to Johnny Mercer, “Too Marvelous For Words,” runs October 29-November 1 at the Kranzberg Arts Center. As we celebrate the centennial of Mercer, Lessack is the perfect match for this romantic of songwriters. Billboard Magazine calls his singing, "Cabaret romanticism of a high order." Tickets for Lee Lessack are $30.



TONY SANDLER finishes the CSTL Fall season November 13-14 at The Sheldon with “Chevalier-Maurice & Me.” This show is neither caricature nor impersonation, but a heartfelt homage to this widely-admired entertainer. It has been the subject of a PBS special and DVD, and contains the charm and savoir faire that Maurice himself brought to film and stage. Tickets for Tony Sandler are $40.



Tickets for all five Cabaret St. Louis performances go on sale Tuesday, September 2 at 10 a.m. at all MetroTix locations. To charge by phone call 314-534-1111 or online at www.MetroTix.com. Memberships available by calling 314-726-1616. For more information, visit www.cabaretstl.org.
