Welcome to The Daily Dose, Wentzville Patch's attempt to equate itself to your morning cup of coffee.
The Daily Dose is a new Wentzville Patch feature. Essentially, it's an updated Wake Up Wentzville. A little bit of old, a little bit of new!
We hope you'll make The Daily Dose part of your daily routine. And we'd love to hear from you on how we can make The Daily Dose a more integral part of your morning. Any suggestions can be sent to Local Editor Brian Feldt at firstname.lastname@example.org.

2. Redbox Handing Out Free Rentals
Still searching for a good Valentine's Day date idea? Dinner and a movie is always a sure-fire winner! And thanks to Redbox, one of those items could be free—unfortunately for our pockets, it's not the dinner.
From Redbox's Facebook page:
Valentine's Day is all about spreading the love, and who doesn't love a free movie night? Send a valentine to your Facebook friends, and they'll get a promo code that they can use for a free one-day DVD rental on February 14th.

3. Question of the Day
The public agency that manages the Edward Jones Dome, according to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch report, proposed a $124 million overhaul of the 16-year-old dome, while St. Louis city and county officials stressed that no new public money would go to the team without voter approval.
The Rams have been rumored for months to be leaving St. Louis for greener pastures in Los Angeles or even London. Of course, there still remains a possibility that St. Louis retains the NFL franchise.

But in the meantime, we ask you: What does your gut say? Will the Rams stay in St. Louis or leave? Do you hope the Rams stay? Why or why not?
