A passenger makes a purchase at a temporary kiosk for Hudson in Terminal 2.
The shopping experience at Lambert is losing a little pizzaz before it springs back with a Wow. Temporary shelving and cash register kiosks have been installed in front of former news & gift stores in both Concourse A and Terminal 2’s E Concourse. It’s all part of the master plan to launch new stores and store designs by the Hudson Group. The temporary sales set-ups allow Hudson to meet the needs of our travelers during the construction. In addition to the flagship Hudson stores for news and gifts, the retailer will soon be opening a variety of new concepts at Lambert through mid-summer: Spectacles, Bliss, Eddie Bauer, CNN Newstand, Discover St. Louis, St. Louis Sports, Natalie's Candies and Ebony.
It’s been 60 years since
St. Louis had two major league baseball teams. With this year’s opening day for
the St. Louis Cardinals around the corner, Lambert-St. Louis International
Airport is featuring a historical exhibit on St. Louis’ other team, the St.
Louis Browns. The St. Louis Browns
Historical Society has installed an exhibit in the Terminal 1 Baggage Claim
featuring more than 200 photos, two jerseys (Home & Road) and other memorabilia.
The exhibit runs through June 2013. St. Louis was recently recognized by the
Bleacher Report as being the Best Baseball city in the U. S. according to Fan
Club president Bill Rogers. Rogers plans an annual celebration of the St. Louis Browns which includes former players and fans. For more information, you can log onto www.thestlbrowns.com.
Now is your chance to
brush up on your American League history (home of the Browns) in St. Louis. The
Browns started out as the Milwaukee Brewers. In 1902 they came to St. Louis and
took the former name of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Brown Stockings (because
of the colors they wore).
The first year in St.
Louis, the Browns finished in second place with a record of 78- 58. After that,
they never placed higher than fourth until 1922, when they placed second behind
the Yankees by one game. They were back to their losing ways until 1944, when
they went to the World Series against the in-town rivals St. Louis Cardinals.
The Browns lost the series 4-2.
In 1951, they signed Satchel
Paige, a Negro League star, yet they still saw no improvement. The Browns signed
what is still to this day the smallest player in MLB history in 3’ 7” 65-pound
Eddie Gaedel who sported the number 1/8. In 1955
the Browns sold Sportsman Park to the Cardinals after the Busch family bought the
Redbirds. The Browns were then sold to
Baltimore where they have played ever since as the Orioles.
On September 28th
1953, before a sparse crowd of 3,174 the Browns played their last game in St.

Captain Joshua Payne gets a suprise welcome at Lambert after returning home Friday from a tour of duty.
Family and flags - lots of both- were on hand to throw a surprise party at the Airport for a US Air Force pilot returning home after a tour of duty in the Middle East. Captain Joshua Payne was greeted first by his wife and two sons. He turned the corner and he was then met by his extended family and some of his squadron mates from the 458th Airlift Squadron, based at Scott Air Force Base. The eye-catching part of this reunion was the huge banner his family displayed featuring the Air Force pilot and his sons.
"Safety Man" made his first appearance on a Lambert roadway this week to alert drivers to avoid a construction project.
Spring is springing up and so is "Safety Man." The orange pylon figure, equipped with safety vest, goggles, vest and a hardhat is a creation of the Airport’s Field Maintance crew. His mission is to bring awareness to potentially dangerous areas. This week "Safety Man" was guarding a section on Lambert International Boulevard where crews were repairing a bridge expansion joint. With the warming of temperatures, Lambert crews are trying to get a jump on potholes and other road repairs. Lambert maintains 25 lane miles of roadways on the public side of the Airport’s terminals and dozens more within perimeter of the airfield.
A crew began demolition of a Terminal 1 covered walkway between Arrivals Drive and Bag Claim this week.
The curve top structures that cover the entrances between Terminal 1 Arrivals Drive and Bag Claim are being demolished to make way for new sleek, all-glass enclosed walkways. The structures were partially damaged in the 2011 tornado, which created an opportunity to redesign the lower level entrances to better enhance Lambert’s historic terminal architecture. The project is being funded with support from the Eastman Chemical Company, as well as insurance proceeds. New glass panels will allow natural lighting to brighten the pathways. New high tech layers within the glass bring safety, safety, security and UV protection. Construction on the entrances will run through the summer. Click here to see the rendering.
