“With So Little to Be Sure of,” I AM sure that Stephen Sondheim is the greatest composer-lyricist in American theatre of the past half-century, and this “Broadway Baby” is thrilled that my show of his songs has been so well received in St. Louis, New York, and Chicago. Though sometimes, when “Everybody Says Don’t,” I confess to feeling like I’m “Losing My Mind,” “Not a Day Goes By” that I’m not grateful for just “Being Alive” and being able to keep this “Good Thing Going.” Really, “What More Do I Need?”

Just you! It would be “Lovely” if you would join me and my brilliant Music Director, Al Fischer, as we bring the show – a look at how one man takes the many parts of a life and works at “Putting It Together” and hailed as “Extremely funny but also extremely personal and warm and emotional” – back to St. Louis on Friday and Saturday, July 15 & 16, at 8 PM!

I’ll make sure you have a great time, even if I have to “Send in the Clowns,” and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed: “Not While I’m Around!”

Meningitis symptoms discussed

By Bill Raack, KWMU

St. Louis, MO. – The death of a high school senior in Wentzville yesterday from bacterial meningitis has health officials reminding parents to be on the look out for symptoms of the disease.

Eighteen-year-old Eric Hamilton had complained of feeling ill just last Thursday.

Bacterial or meningococcal meningitis is a rare infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord that can strike quickly. Cardinal Glennon pediatrician Dr. Ken Haller says the symptoms can be confused for the flu.

“Fever, headache, difficulty with exposure to light, what’s called photophobia, people don’t want to be around the light, neck pain, stiff neck and stiff shoulders,” Dr. Haller said. “Vomiting can be part of it too because as pressure increases inside the skull and the central nervous system, that can cause nauseous and vomiting.”

Dr. Haller says germs can be spread through secretions in the nose or throat and are transferred by close contact like coughing, sneezing and kissing.
