Creve Coeur In Review: Autism, Football, Drag Boat Racing and Cars

A look at some of the stories making news in and around Creve Coeur this past week.

Welcome to something we hope will become a regular fixture here at Creve Coeur Patch.

By now, you know that while we do a large amount of our own reporting on issues of interest to city residents, businesses, schools, and others, we're not afraid to highlight the reporting done by other media outlets. 

We'll use this space to share some of that work, and other items of interest that we've come across impacting people in and around Creve Coeur.

  • A potentially sad story had a happy ending Monday when a 10-year old boy with special needs wandered away from a St. Louis area school, before being found unharmed. KSDK-TV used the story of a Creve Coeur family to examine issues around "autism-related wandering."
  • Disney's latest Pixar product Cars 2 has a Creve Coeur connection. The St. Louis Jewish Light caught up with Jeremy Lasky, who the paper says "grew up" at in Creve Coeur and graduated from
  • We're also learning more about what convinced football standout Durron Neal to verbally commit to the University of Oklahoma before the start of his senior season. As NewsOK and The Oklahoman report, Neal's role in a movie may have helped clinch the deal.
  • Our last item strays slightly from our borders, but bears mentioning. The Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series came to Creve Coeur Lake on Father's Day, and as DragRacing Online reports, one of the participants is lucky to be alive. The site reports Terry Kain nearly drowned, possibly taking rescuers as long as 16 minutes to revive him. A Lucas Oil spokesperson tells Patch the issue was with Kain's boat's drain plugs, but that Kain had already left a local hospital and has plans to compete again.
