Spring has officially sprung. The sun is staying out longer, flowers are beginning to bloom, and Missouri’s wildlife is waking up from its winter slumber. Signs of spring are evident wherever you look, especially at the Wildlife Rescue Center in Ballwin, where things really begin to heat up this time of year.
The Wildlife Rescue Center is a non-profit agency dedicated to rehabbing injured, orphaned or sick wild animals native to Missouri. The 9,000-square-foot facility sees more than 2,000 patients a year. To discover what happens day to day at the center as well as learn what we can do when we encounter a sick or injured wild animal, we stopped in for a tour and visit with Senior Animal Care Specialist Katie Moreau.

When Elizabeth Fitzgerald was in college working toward a degree in education, she was asked to compose her mission statement as a future educator. At that time, she likely had no idea just how far her mission to create a love of learning in children would travel or how many children she would reach.
Chester Lampkin is a familiar face to thousands of St. Louisans who know him as the friendly guy delivering the weather with a smile each morning on KSDK-Newschannel 5. We recently chatted with him to get to know him a little better off the screen.

It’s as synonymous to St. Louis as the Gateway Arch: Cardinals baseball. It’s an almost year-round passion for so many in this city. We spend winters pining for it, springs anxiously awaiting its return to town, summers immersed in it, and autumns hoping it lasts just a little longer. Millions of eyes are glued to the action as the birds on the bat take to the field for that most beloved of sports. But do we all see the game in the same way? How different is it to experience baseball through the eye of the camera lens? We recently sat down with Dilip Vishwanat, freelance photographer for Getty Images, to examine the job of a professional sports photographer and learn how he tells the game’s story.
