Some of our favorites from 2012. We took some of them, and so did users like you
We've reached that time of year...it is time to look back at the year that was. Today, we're doing that in photos. Some of them were taken by Patch staff, but a lot of them came from users like you. Because you posted photos in our Pics & Clips Gallery, we followed Pattonville High School's trip to Hawaii, Chaminade Soccer's road to the state finals, met Leap Year babies, and a city council member's cat. Together with some of our shots, which captured some fun and memorable moments from the year, this is our collective look at 2012. Take a look at what we've assembled here and get ready to share your photos in 2013.

Randy Jotte would join Ann Wagner and Ed Martin in the race for the Republican nomination in Missouri's second congressional district.
The field of Republican candidates in the race for Missouri's newly-redrawn second congressional district may be set to grow. Randy Jotte, a one time Webster Groves City Council member who most recently ran unsuccessfully for spots in the Missouri General Assembly and St. Louis County Council, has launched a website and other campaign apparatus to consider a bid for Congress. The news was also reported Monday by PoliticMo and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the St. Louis Beacon. Jotte's website says he is a 1978 graduate of De Smet, and is currently an ER doctor at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Former RNC Co-Chair Ann Wagner and Attorney Ed Martin are already in the race to succeed U.S. Represenative Todd Akin. Akin is running for the U.S. …

A look back at some memorable Web videos from the world of Missouri politics.
It’s hard to believe, but 2011 is only a few short days away from ending, and the natural human inclination is to engage in retrospection. As is the case near the end of December, it’s hard to pick a particular issue or event that defined an entire year. In particular, 2011 featured fierce fights over redistricting, a devastating tornado in Joplin, delicate political maneuvering and a large dose of presidential politics heading into 2012.

The congressional candidate considered a bid for the GOP nomination for Governor.
The St. Louis Beacon is reporting that Ed Martin, who after a recent KMOX radio appearance caused a stir in political circles by suggesting he would consider entering the GOP race for Governor, has decided to remain in the Republican primary for the 2nd Congressional district. Martin is opposed by former RNC Co-Chair Ann Wagner, who has also fended off questions about switching to another contest, in light of her strong fundraising totals. Read Jo Mannies' report to find out what the Martin campaign did in the last week to consider the switch, prompted by KMOX host Mark Reardon after Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder announced he would not run for the state's top job. Martin's decision leaves St. Louis businessman David Spence and Bill …
