After a Maryland Heights woman won the lottery, we asked our Facebook fans how they'd spend the money if they won--and they weren't afraid to share! Add your voice to the conversation, right here!
After a local woman won the lottery, I found myself thinking of all the things I’d do if I won the lottery—things like pay off the house, buy a new car, set up college funds for the kids, vacations—the usual.

Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter will play a massive role in reelecting President Barack Obama or voting in a new President of the United States, in Mitt Romney. How is it affecting your voting habits?
Voters are less than a week away from hitting the polls, in hopes of voting in a new president or giving the current one another four-year term. Chances are, they've already influenced the outcome whether the meant to or not. According to a Pew Research Centerstudy, 66 percent of social media users—or 39 percent of all American adults—have done at least one of eight civic or political activities with social media.
