While we have experienced a pretty mild winter so far, chances are more cold is on the way. In addition to cold temperatures, winter can also mean dangerous driving conditions. As we saw with the out-of-nowhere ice storm a couple of years ago, it’s best to be prepared. I want to take this ti…

Last week Youtube superstar Felix Kjellberg AKA PewDiePie’s house was broken into, and almost all of his and his wife’s belongings were stolen.

I’m a big fan of Halloween, but funny enough, though, for as much as I love the season (late fall is my favorite time of year, period), I’ve never really gone full-out in terms of celebrating it.  Typically my Halloween participation is limited to taking photos at events around the holiday a…

While you’re out shopping here in Wentzville during the holiday season, I’d like to remind you to protect yourself and your identity. During the holidays, in addition to spending more money, we tend to be busier, more stressed and more distracted than other times of the year. Identity thieve…
