Confluence St. Louis Losing Edith Cunnane


Berger, Jerry, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


PROS & CONFLUENCE: Edith C. Cunnane has just given notice of her departure as executive director of highbrow Confluence St. Louis and already a short list of possible replacements has begun circulating among the region's movers and shakers. On the list to head the citizens' public policy study group: media types Betsey Bruce and Don Marsh; Development Strategies partner Robert Lewis; Confluence policy exec Kathleen Strout; and community volunteers Joyce Follman and Virginia Benson.

PEOPLE IN PLACES: Our town's Mildred Winter, exec director of the nationally acclaimed Parents as Teachers National Center, received the prestigious Dana Award "for outstanding innovations in education" at a doodah in Gotham this month. Winter flew back with a fancy plaque and a check for $50,000. . . .

Alexis Tucci has taken over the reins of Hyperspace, the newest downtown playground. It's at 1014 Locust Street, the site of yesteryear's Alverne Chapel, which has been deconsecrated in the renovation by Paul Landsbaum. The altar, still intact, is being used as a Hyperspace deejay booth. Incidentally, Tucci recently celebrated her 21st birthday at Failoni's with her parents, Vicki Rosenkoetter and J. Kim Tucci. . . .

As hometowner and Yankees great Yogi Berra once said: "It's deja vu all over again! …
