An organized movement of strikes began in St. Louis and is spreading across the region. Employees at McDonald's in North St. Louis County, and Jimmy John's took to the picket lines Wednesday. Employees at 20 fast food locations will strike Thursday.
People peacefully gathered and marched in front of a Ferguson McDonald's Restaurant today. You could hear the group of about 100 chanting during the strike," We started from the bottom and now we're here; $7.35 just ain't fair." There was also, "We want change and we ain't talking about pennies." As well, a whole host of additional songs. But for all the people smiling, the subject at hand was serious. The crowd gathered as part of a movement to unionize fast food restaurants throughout the St. Louis Region. Employees at the Ferguson McDonald's, located at 9131 W. Florissant, stood outside in plain clothes around 3:45 p.m., and protested for respect through better pay and improved working conditions. Shannon Garth-Rhodes, spokesperson with…

Etsy.com has become a popular place for online shoppers to find handmade crafts and vintage items, and artists here in Arnold are opening up their own Etsy shops. We've profiled three shops below.

Arlen Castenada, co-owner of CrossFit 636, says rather than focusing on exercise machines to keep his clients fit, he favors a "whole body" approach.
There's a new gym in Arnold called CrossFit 636, but you won't see any of the typical exercise machines there. Arlen Castenada, co-owner of the gym, says he wants to keep people fit, but he isn't willing to turn over their training to a bunch of exercise machines that will only provide a workout for one part of the body or another. Instead, Castenada and his business partner, John Powers, favor a whole-body approach, using compound movements where people are getting fit by working on multiple things at the same time. It's something he calls "functional fitness," designed to replicate typical everyday movements that provide a fitness level for the entire body. Castenada, who lives in Mehlville, has taught everything from Olympic-level …
