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.

BRANSON WEST, Mo. -- It was touted as one of the Branson area's biggest housing developments in years.  Indian Ridge Resort broke ground in 2006, but construction stopped years ago and now the vacant property is going on the auction block. Nestled in the rolling mountains of Stone County, above Table Rock Lake, 13 condos in various stages of completion were to be dream homes.      The construction loan for one lot -- or half of one condo -- was $440,000, according to court documents, which also indicate more than 20 people had already bought a home, but they never got the chance to move in. Now, a little more than 25 acres with all the structures will be put up for auction with an opening bid of $550,000.

SEYMOUR, MO --   Tuesdays and Thursday mornings, starting at ten, buyers drive in by the dozens from as far away as Arkansas. The sellers deliver what they picked at daylight in horse-drawn flat wagons and buggies. The Amish community's bi-weekly auction is a cornucopia of organic, home-grown seasonal produce. Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers of various varieties auctioned off by the flat or the case. In an open air pavilion, sellers line an upper deck seated in lawn chairs, as the farmers roll in their loads of produce.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A customer wants to know why some local businesses scan your driver's license when you go to buy beer or wine.  He wanted to know what information the little strip on the back of your license contains, and why some stores scan it into their computer systems. It happened to Mark West of Springfield at a local Walgreens store, and we found several other businesses do the same thing. "It was bothersome," said West. West says his quick trip to a Walgreens recently left him empty handed.

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.
