Art Hill

Before sunrise on Monday morning Dec. 1, Art Hill in Forest Park will glow with a special message for World AIDS Day.

A group called AIDS on Art Hill plans to work all night setting out and lighting 13,000 candles in bags to spell out the word “AIDS.” Aaron Laxton came up with the idea. He said the effort is designed to draw attention to a disease for which there is still no cure.

“It will be a huge spectacle,” Laxton said.

This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: Flurries, maybe. That's what people were talking about heading into the Ground Hog's day weekend in St. Louis.

So, a fair amount of unexpected glee came to the young at heart on Sunday morning when 3-5 inches of white stuff sparkled on the ground.
