What All-Star Game? Life goes on for some St. Louisans
By Cordell Whitlock
KSDK -- Baseball did not stop the Clayton Board of Alderman from voting on a smoking ban Tuesday night while the All-Star Game was getting under way at Busch Stadium. Mayor Linda Goldstein says city government trumps athletics.
"I know it's hard to believe and my husband doesn't agree, but sometimes it does," Goldstein said.
It was obviously not a typical summer night Tuesday in St. Louis. Many parks and playgrounds were empty and some outdoor dining spots had thin crowds. But it was business as usual in the University City Loop where the Summer Band Concert Series went on as planned.
Lifelong baseball fan Mary Racen had a choice between baseball and music. Racen choose the latter.
"I don't know what it is but I have to hear this music when I can. It\'s wonderful," she said.
When the concert was over, Racen, as any true Cardinals fan would, rushed home to watch the game on television.

All-American in The Loop
The music's all-American tonight at the Market in the Loop, where the University City Summer Concert Band is set to entertain.
In fact, you can catch the approximately 90 musicians every Tuesday through the end of July. Situated in the shade, they\'ll perform pieces such as The American Civil War Fantasy, The Sound of Music and An Original Dixieland Concerto tonight - with future concerts promising more of the show tunes, marches and original pieces the band is known for.
Don't forget your lawn chairs - and don\'t forget the kids: Little ones are invited up front to help conduct the final piece of each show.
