Feature Article

Don Corrigan, columnist for the Kirkwood-Webster Times and the South County Times, has a front page story this week (September 3) in both papers.  See the Kirkwood-Webster Times article by following this link:  http://www.websterkirkwoodtimes.com/Articles-i-2010-09-03-170651.113118_Missouris_Civil_War.html.

The Times newspapers cover a large territory in St. Louis County.  As Corrigan writes, it is time for the St. Louis area to get itself prepared for the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, which starts in 2011.  And it is.  In other news this week, St. Louis County announced a $500,000 grant to go to the Missouri Civil War Museum project at Jefferson Barracks.  Congrats to Mark Trout, the force behind the museum, which now is assured of opening in time for the anniversary.
