Paul asks…

What places over the course of American westward expansion were known as the gateways to the west?

I know Pittsburgh PA was early on, I heard Lancaster PA was also know as the gateway to the west prior to Pittsburgh. Later on St. Louis MO. Any other places during the course of American history known as gateways to the west?

Administrator answers:

Read about the “Old Northwest Territory.” and the Northwest Ordinance of 1787. These are the main areas in which people from the East would have emigrated to prior to the Louisiana Purchase. After the Louisiana Purchase, all trials to the far west originated from the Mississippi River.

Linda asks…

Can sakura trees be grown in the United States mid west?

I live in south east Missouri, about 2 hours south of St. Louis. So I was wondering if Japanese sakura trees would be able to grow here? And if so what special care would they need?

Administrator answers:

“Sakura” is Japanese for ‘cherry blossom’….

Here are some Google images of sakura growing in your nation’s capital city, Washington, DC;

Ruth asks…

Where should a young,single professional live in Dallas. I work at the UT Southwestern medical campus.?

I am moving down from St Louis and I really hope the social scene in Dallas is better. I heard that Uptown is a great place to live but the traffic sucks. ANd also I guess it’s really expensive. How much do you guys think that a 2 bedroom condo in that area cost? Thanks a ton in advance for your help.

Administrator answers:

There is a new Cityville complex that is going in at the Southwestern Medical Complex that just recently opened within blocks of SMC. Ohterwise, I would recommend areas east of there. Oak Lawn would be close and little traffic. Downtown is booming and very cool, but pricey. Avoid the suburbs, you’ll have major traffic. Look around in the Inwood / Lemmon area. You could get a nice condo for around $1,100./mo and be within a 15 minute drive (no freeways) to work. Good luck and enjoy Dallas.

ANTHONY SLAUGHTER HEADS FOR THE CITY BY THE BAY
December 7, 2011 Anthony Slaughter has been tapped by KRON-TV in San Francisco to become its on-air weather personality and in charge of producing all computerized weather graphics beginning Feb. 2 – a day after his contract with KSDK, Channel 5 expires. Courted by NBC, he has already begun to meet the staff and signed a “six-figure” pact. “Can’t wait to get there,” says Slaughter.

Anthony Slaughter has always had a love for meteorology.

As a child in Boston he was the designated family meteorologist, alerting his family and friends to dangerous weather in the area.

His passion for weather continued to grow when he joined the storm-chasing team at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he majored in Environmental and Physical Geography. By his sophomore year he was not only storm chasing but also getting hands-on experience with Doppler and Velocity radar, finding which areas should be aware of potentially severe weather.

During his junior year in college, he was offered a coveted internship at KOMU in Columbia, Mo. After a few months there, he was offered the weekend weather anchor for the 6pm and 10pm newscasts.

During his time at KOMU, he went from an intern to the main weekend weathercaster, even training three interns from 2006-2009 (all while still in college).

Anthony makes it a habit to visit local schools to talk about weather. He also participates in local events to raise money for local charities. Outside of work, he enjoys any activity outdoors, whether it’s swimming, running, biking, kayaking or tennis. He also plays the drums and has the most fun finding new music.

Anthony values his family and his friends for pushing him to follow his dreams and never give up. He also loves to travel.

He was most recently the weekend meteorologist in St. Louis, Mo. A native of Boston, Mass.
Http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46873179/ns/local_news-san_francisco_bay_area_ca/t/anthony-slaughter/ ——– KSDK meteorologist Anthony Slaughter speaks to Hazelwood North Middle School students Hazelwood North Middle School hosted KSDK-TV Channel 5 meteorologist Anthony Slaughter for its Black History Month Celebration Assembly.

Slaughter spoke to the entire student body about his dream of becoming a weatherman, a dream he had since he was seven years old. A District graduate, he told the students how he attended Jury and Townsend elementary schools, Kirby (now Hazelwood East) Middle School and Hazelwood East High School. He said he can relate to where the students are today because he was once in their position.

The students were extremely excited after Slaughter completed his speech and gave him an enthusiastic response to his words. The program contained many student performances as they demonstrated their talents – singing, dancing, cheerleading, playing instruments and more.
