SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- We should all be flattered.  According to multiple contentions made Monday on a cable television show, the Ozarks is about to become the center of what remains of human civilization. "Conspiracy Theory," hosted by Jesse Ventura, followed a "trail" of "evidence" to multiple locations across the Ozarks, claiming to support the notion that a powerful group is very close to bringing about the end of life as we know it; a group that will subsequently make the Ozarks its home.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Crosslines is now taking applications for families in Greene County who need assistance for the holidays.  Families who qualify can receive help with food and toys that they would not otherwise be able to afford. The applicant needs to provide a picture ID and a Social Security number for everyone in their household.  Crosslines is trying to streamline the process this year by requiring just one application for both Thanksgiving and Christmas help.   The coordinator says, because the application office is on the southeast side of the city, and many of the recipients are on the north side, Crosslines wanted to make it one stop for Thanksgiving and Christmas food help and the Toy Store.

BOLIVAR, Mo. -- The murder case against a teenager from rural Polk County started over this week.   Levi Elliott, 16, is accused of shooting his stepsister, Sierra Elliott, 12, at their home between Bolivar and Fair Play in March 2012 while his father and stepmother were away.  After the shooting, investigators say, Elliott drove to Clinton and got a ride to Kansas City, where his mother took him to a police station. After a judge certified Elliott to be tried as an adult, he was charged in June 2012 with second-degree murder, and armed criminal action.   The case was moved from Polk County to Greene County this summer to try to ensure a fair outcome, and a trial was scheduled for Sept.

Today's science question: What is in a Cheeto that allows it to burn? There is energy in everything.  One way to measure that is with the unit of calories.  (A calorie is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1 o C). And don't confuse it with the kind of calorie you try to keep from reaching your waistline.  A more common measure of energy is the Joule, which we use to measure instability in the StormTeam weather center.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- It's Halloween, and as most kids took to the streets for their treats, some were taking to the rails.   It was all thanks to some volunteers who were hoping to share their hobby and their hearts.   For the past several years David Holberg has been building a miniature railroad near the Springfield-Branson National Airport.  This Halloween, for the second year, he opened his “Joplin and Springfield Railway” to the public.  Hundreds had a chance to see his progress, while getting a few scares along the line.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- They can give you a "pick me up" or help you rehydrate after long day in the sun, but according numerous studies energy drinks and sports drinks are exposing people to possible dental issues. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation , New York University College of Dentistry , Dimensions of Dental Hygiene , and General Dentistry all came to a similar conclusion: many popular drinks are capable of hurting your teeth by eroding your enamel. "That eroded enamel then is more susceptible to decay and sensitivity," said Springfield dentist Dr. Michael Beasley.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-- If you're looking for a way to make a little extra money this fall, now is the time to start picking black walnuts.  Brian Hammons, president of Hammons Products Company of Stockton, says many of the walnuts are still on trees.  He expects the harvest to pick up in another week or two. Growers say a windy, rainy spell with some hard freezes will help bring the walnuts off the trees.  Hammons says last year's price to pick walnuts was $9 per 100 pounds.

BOLIVAR, Mo. -- A judge ruled Wednesday that a 15-year-old boy can be tried as an adult for the shooting death of his half-sister.  The judge ruled the murder of Sierra Elliott, 12, was so severe that the case against Levi Elliott, 15, belongs in circuit court, not juvenile court. Sierra was shot in the head on Saturday night, March 24, while she and Levi were left alone at home for 30 minutes at their home on East 430th Road, west of Bolivar.  Her mother found Sierra's body, but Levi and his father's truck were gone from the home.  The Polk County sheriff says Levi turned himself into police in Kansas City later that night after he got to his mother's home.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Springfield Flu Immunization Coalition will offer adult seasonal flu shot clinics beginning this month.  These vaccinations offer protection against seasonal flu and include protection against the H1N1 virus.  Vaccinations will be available at no cost for adult residents without health insurance. Residents without insurance who are unable to pay for a flu shot are more likely to forgo vaccination and may have to go to emergency rooms and clinics to treat flu-related symptoms.  These treatment options can often be more costly.  By offering flu shots to residents without insurance, the Flu Coalition aims to reduce the spread of flu as well as reduce the costs of treatment associated with flu illness.
