The next Beacon & Eggs, the popular series of town-hall style meetings sponsored by the St. Louis Beacon and KTRS, will be held from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 21, outside the KTRS studio in the West Port Shopping Center. Join us as moderator McGraw Milhaven and a Beacon reporter talk with civic leaders talk about ways in which St. Louis City and County can either merge or share services.
Panelists will include George Herbert “Bert” Walker, civic leader and former ambassador to Hungary, St. Louis Alderman Antonio French, Kitty Ratcliffe of the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Hugh Scott, a county resident and former Clayton alderman.
Meet Beacon and KTRS staffers and enjoy coffee and breakfast pastries from 8-9 a.m. The panel discussion will be broadcast live from 9-10 a.m. on KTRS 550-AM, and the audience will be invited to ask questions. This event is free and open to the public. Feel free to bring a friend.
DIRECTIONS TO KTRS
KTRS is in the West Port Plaza shopping center east of Interstate 270 and north of Page Boulevard. Parking is free on the outdoor lots surrounding the center. The KTRS studios are on the second floor in the building that also houses the Funny Bone nightclub and the Drunken Fish restaurant. (It also used to house Ozzie’s restaurant.)
Beacon & Eggs is a monthly event that takes the Beacon staff out of our office and into the community. Each month we visit a different region of St. Louis to meet and greet with community members and discuss local issues.
Coffee and pasteries are served from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m., followed by a panel discussion from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. These events are free, and all are welcome to attend!
