The company hosted a Creve Coeur-Olivette Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting Friday.
A few weeks after a "soft opening" for AT&T's new Creve Coeur retail location in the former Blockbuster Video space across from CityPlace, company executives and the Creve Coeur-Olivette Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon-cutting Friday afternoon. Company officials said the new location, not far from the company's former retail outlet on Olive Boulevard, provides better parking as well as the chance to have the only company Device Support Center right next door. That facility, staffed by a third party company under the AT&T banner, was previously housed on the other side of Creve Coeur and wasn't convenient for customers, according to company executives.

Winners were selected from Andrews Academy and Parkway Northeast Middle School in Creve Coeur.
The arrival of summer, albeit not officially for another few weeks, does not prevent us from honoring those bright students doing good work in the classroom and recognizing them in the community as Whiz Kids. This week, we're recognizing two Creve Coeur area students who finished in first place among their classmates in a Creve Coeur-Olivette Chamber of Commerce essay contest.

But when O’Dell, a native of Joplin, talked about her hometown where an F-4 tornado struck Sunday, killing at least 118 people, she looked like she was in shock. “It was very …
