Where We Stand
Economic Growth & Racial Equity: How can St. Louis compete in the global economy?
Wednesday, January 27, 6:30-8 p.m.
at Central Library Auditorium

1301 Olive Street

Where We Stand (WWS) is a series of publications produced by EWG that provide objective, reliable and verifiable data on the St. Louis region and comparable metropolitan areas.

On January 27th, panelists will explore the complex interaction of orkforce development, regional competitiveness, and racial equity in the St. Louis region with a focus on two questions: 1) Does the region have the human capital it needs to compete in the world economy? 2) How can the region ensure that opportunities in the new economy are shared by all?

A Bit of Cherokee Street History

Posted by Anne McCullough on January 4, 2016 | Comments Off on A Bit of Cherokee Street History

Deichman Music store, on Cherokee, between Texas and Jefferson was a high school hang out as the local “record shop” (as in phonograph records).  We also had a big following with the nurse trainees at Lutheran Hospital, a couple blocks away.  I worked after school from Roosevelt High and weekends.

I worked there as a salesman, selling the old 78 rpm, shellac phonograph records. This would have been 1950-1955.  If you were a “people watcher” you would have been in heaven walking around Cherokee as it was a mixture of all south side peoples.  We had four restaurants, a Velvet Freeze ice cream shop, two auto supply (Western Auto & J&R), J. C. Penny’s, and many shoe stores. Also an outside fruit/veggie stand, and 3 (count them 3) 5 and 10 cent stores (Woolworth, Kresge, Neisner), all whom employed many young women.

Gooseberries Opening Day – and a free breakfast!

Posted by David Godbout on October 20, 2014 | Comments Off on Gooseberries Opening Day – and a free breakfast!

On Tuesday, October 21st, Gooseberries (2754 Chippewa Street, USA) will open its doors for business.

In honor of this, and of all of Kim and Ross’s hard work coming together, Novation Church (no affiliation with Gooseberries) is buying breakfast for whosoever will.  All you have to do is get to Gooseberries (did we tell you it is located on Chippewa, a very up and coming street?) tomorrow between 8:00 and 9:30am, and utter the words, “put it on Novation’s tab.”  

9:31am will be too late!
