   The owners of a south city grocery store are asking their customers to help them keep their doors open.  Local Harvest Grocery in Tower Grove South is facing imminent closure if the owners can't raise $120,000 by February 7th.  
   The owners, Patrick Horine and Maddie Earnest, posted an open letter on Facebook Monday asking their loyal customers for help.  The pair operate the grocery store and two cafes and feature locally grown food.  Ibn the letter, they say their failed expansion into Kirkwood was a devastating blow to the company's finances.  
   Earnest tells Fox 2 News they're asking customers to invest in the future of their neighborhoods and locally produced food.  "What we're doing is reaching into the community and asking them if they want to buy a punch card to our cafes or a gift certificate that you agree not to use until 2015," she said.
   Earnest says if they don't reach their goal, customers who buy the gift certificates will be refunded. She says they're also looking into discussions with new equity partners.  
   Give certificates can be purchased at the store, or online at http://igg.me/at/localharvest/x/1107661.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - An expansion of Medicaid under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul could increase Illinois' unpaid bills.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports that the expansion would also force the state to take even longer to pay its existing $9 billion in backlogged bills.

Medicaid is the government health program for the poor and disabled. The General Assembly is considering approving a federally subsidized expansion of the program. Estimates show that about 342,000 additional Illinois residents could become eligible under the planned expansion.

The federal government would fully fund the first three years of the expansion. It would then incrementally drop the funding.

The Illinois Senate in February approved a measure authorizing the enrollment increase. Officials expect the House to vote on the issue by May 31.
