What would you do if you won $1 million?

This week’s installment of Street Beat we asked people what they would do with $1 million. Here’s what they had to say:

Anne Rosborough


I would want to share it with people, and I would also give some to my kids, and probably put some away for retirement. Try to be smart with it. And maybe a little tropical vacation, too.


Rick Barter

Mount Desert

The first thing I would do is pay off my kids’ student loans. And then I would give each of them $250,000 a piece – I’ve got two kids – so they could get started in their lives.


Sheila Hamblen

Bar Harbor

I would retire and enjoy life and travel.

Bar Harbor

Other than going to Iceland, and taking the natural history course at COA that has to do with Mount Desert Island in particular, I would pay off my son’s student loans, pay off my daughter’s college education, go to Europe with her, to every place she wanted to go. And then I would use a lot of it to reinstate full librarian positions in the island schools, because other than Conners Emerson and the high school, we’ve lost people with their Masters in library science. I think that would be a really good way of supporting the community.
